Hello! The audio output of Firefox is always set to the speakers of my laptop. I can't hear videos or music via my headphones or another audio device (Steinberg UR 22 mkII). When I take other browsers or spotify, the audio output is allways on the plugged in devices. But with Firefox I only hear it through laptop speakers.

Its 2020 man!

Why are we (Mozilla community) still missing content casting feature just like Google Chrome and other browsers. Even the new Microsoft Edge Chromium have that feature. I usually stream a lot of content and this feature, for me, is indispensable.

Furthermore, I am not asking for any workaround or extensions. There should be a native casting feature on Mozilla Firefox too just like other browsers.

I need to continue to use an application (Web Site) built with Flash Player for the first 3 months of 2021. Flash Player support ends on December 31st 2020. What is the plan at Mozilla in terms of restricting access to Flash Player in 2021? - For example, is there a timebomb in the browser so that Flash Player will seize to work on December 31st? - If not, would Flash Player become inaccessible following the first browser update in 2021? If yes, do we know when date is scheduled for approximately? - Will the behavior be the same for all Firefox versions (Light, Enterprise, iOS, Android, etc..). Thank you!

I created my Firefox account with an old email address that is no longer accessible and will never be accessible again. I added a secondary email address long ago and made it primary. My account is logged in on my phone and my old laptop, both need repair, laptop data is probably gone. I logged in on my new laptop and a tablet, but had to change the password. Now Firefox does not know my logins and passwords, history, settings and preferences, bookmarks. It seems as if I have created a new account. How can I regain access to my old data?

Hi. I am moving my Firefox settings from the old IBM to the new MintBox computer. Both run Linux Mint. Procedure so far followed:

1. Bring over key4.db and logins.json 2. Sign in to Firefox sync and import everything.

Over here I got my custom settings to save all cookies, even third party cookies, for the session. There were Exceptions, which did not come over. (Here I will Allow Always the websites I keep a cookie to log in automatically or set site preferences. I may even blockm certain third party sites from storing cookies. These deviate from the default, to allow for session.)

I did not get the custom thumbs I created over there for my New Tab start page pinned sites. I got the pinned sites OK.


This didn't work: I copied the .mozilla folder from my home and pasted it here by way of a flash driveafter backing up this profile. That didn't work when I brought Firefox up from a Thunderbird Mail link.


So now I looked to see what my Profile folder is called, stored in my home/.thunderbird/firefox/{Profile} as found under Firefox Help > Troubleshooting. I copied that folder onto a flash drive and have it available here.

How best to proceed? First I back .mozilla up, then open Firefox and go to the Troubleshooting page and open my active Profile. Then:

Copy selected files from my Profile over on the Flash drive and paste them individually here?

Delete everything here before pasting in a copy of the contents of the imported profile?

Don't delete anything here and paste contents of my imported file, overwriting?

I am tending to want to go with the first choice, adding or replacing files here with selected files from the imported copy sitting on the flash drive.

Is there a specific list and description of the various profile files I need to paste in? An up-to-date reference containing this info?

[b]Running Linux Mint 19.3 64-bit MATE on the old IBM Running Linux Mint 20 Cinnamon on the new MintBox Mini 2 (Pro)/b

Thank you.

I was logged into a website which hanged and when I tried to log back on it started giving me the error PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR .I've tried to troubleshoot with all the help I could get on these pages and others, I'm at my wits end. The website works on my phone browser, so it's clearly this laptop or my internet dongle.

It's also happening across all browsers. I don't have VPN or antivirus software on except Microsoft Essentials. I've tried removing real time protection on that but it didn't work. I tried creating a new profile of Firefox, nothing. I tried going to about:config page and setting security.ssl.enable_ocsp_stapling to false, nothing so set it back to true I've gone to task manager to see whether there is a task don't recognise so I can stop it, nothing. Pleeeease heeeelp meeeeee!

Hello,

For about +1 year, every time I open a Firefox window, in Windows 10 Task Manager I see 5 to 10 windows are open and take up more than 800MB of space.

To this day I still haven't found a solution.

Can anyone tell me how to stop this process as it slows down my Toshiba Satellite Pro R50 C10X laptop which is 4 years old and still very healthy ....

thank you
