For months now, when I go to YouTube on Firefox, I get the attached message.

If I go to YouTube using Safari, no problem. I can play the videos without a hitch.

How can I fix this? I LIKE Firefox and would prefer to continue using it.

Thanks, Duncan

Hi all.

Since some days the HTML5 YT player doesn't work anymore to me. The videos keep "loading" (black screen) for 30 seconds or so. After that, a text message appears (see image attached)

I copy the video link to Chrome and it works just fine. I've tried the following things I found here:

- Updating FF - Updating Flash Player - Deleting temporal files - Start FF in safe mode - Checking Flash Player is active (in Plugins) - Checking all boxes are blue in the YouTube's HTML5 test page - Checking the "Fix common audio and video issues", but couldn't find a solution

I installed the extension to force YT to use the Flash based player, and it works ok. So the problem is with the "modern" player (HTML5).

I really apreciated any help with this. Oh, and Merry Christmas to all this amazing community! :)

Windows 10, all drivers up to date, latest version Firefox, only compatible addons running up to date, plugins all latest up to date Doesn't matter, 1 tab open or my usual 25+, after 32 or so minutes Firefox crashes quietly, closes slowly (I monitor memory and clean cache), then reboots itself after another 10+ seconds. I configged it to default hold extra cache (20) to try to help, no luck. Most sites operate fine on my tabs although like always memory usage creeps up slightly. But just now, to crash with only ONE tab open and sometimes linking and opening just 1 more from my email, STILL crashed. Strange. Never happened before WIN 10 and the update from maybe Firefox 44 to 48.

I stopped using firefox because of this same issue on a french tax site and thought Id give it another go. I'd blame the sites except the problem is solved by using chrome instead.

A few days a go I changed my home page. Now, every time I open FF, I am asked if I get "FF Homepage Notification" and I am asked if I want to revert to my old HP or stay with the new. The box says "Distributed by Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc." and "VideoDownloadConverterToolbar". The Video etc is not checked in View/Toolbars. It seems to be something new. BTW, the HP changed to the International NY Times, which I did not (knowingly) choose. I have tried to go back to the regular NY Times and keep getting the MSG. I changed my default to another newspaper and still get the MSG.

What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance for the help!

When I start up my computer and open Firefox none of my accounts are active, I have to log into each one of them even if I check "remember me." When I close Firefox and reopen it after having logged into all my accounts in the first session, all my accounts are active. When I turn off my computer, and turn it back on again and open Firefox, my accounts aren't active. The only account that stays logged in is Google.

Here is a picture of my all my relevant settings, add-ons, and plugins.

I'm running The latest version of Windows 10 Home and also have Malewarebytes Anti-Exploit free edition.

I've tried the "Refresh Firefox" option on the Mozilla Website.

This simple script snippet has always worked in the past, and it even works correctly in IE. But in Firefox it opens a new window at about 400 x 400 pixels.

<a href="javascript: void(0)" onclick="window.open('January.shtml','windowname1','width=850, height=600');

  return false;">Click here for simple popup window</a>

What needs to be changes in the FF configuration so it works correctly?

Failure to get this to work correctly means I will have to discontinue supporting Firefox and go to Internet Explorer where the script works.

Thanks for any support you can provide.

I have already tried some hints in the support page, but no luck with the the suggestions for "link.o"

Hi there,

Youtube gave me an "An error has occurred, please try again later" (translated freely from Dutch) since yesterday... So : this is what I tried already : 1. started with a fresh testprofile and that worked 2. restarted with my regular profile and started again in Safe Mode : that worked too 3. back again to Regular Firefox mode and disabling my addons in batches, trying to pinpoint the culprit... But strangely enough, disabling all of them manually (along with the plugins), didn't work 4. had a look at other threads and deleted the xulstore.json (after taking a backup of my profile of course) : still no luck

So : how is this possible? What does happen in Safe Mode exactly? Or can I try something else? thanks! /dimi

Got a brand new MSI laptop and ever since installing Firefox the look of the web page crashes some elements (look white) if the program has been minimized and then opened up again. Usually, when moving the mouse over it pops back again. But it is annoying and I'm thinking of switching to another browser instead. Latest nVidia driver.

I'm trying to sign a petition using Firefox on windows 7, to help children in Somalia, and have tried on Tor & Chrome also. It says server not found every time I try, this is the first time I have come across this problem, as I regularly sign petitions. Is this happening because of Windows 10 upgrade updates, even though I am remaining on Windows 7??
