Hello. All of a sudden i have been getting prompts just before completing gmail sign is asking if i want to switch to html or default.I chose default,tried to sign in again,and got this legacy version of gmail with messages being listed in html format which is brutal.What caused this ? how do i get it back to the way its always been? Whats going on with this,and why is this even happening? Its also saying i used a tablet or mobile device to sign in twice,and i dont ever do that. How can i get it back to the way its always been? Have tried googling all of this but it happens on its own,and sometimes it doesn,t after i sign out of the html ,and reboot,but its unpredictable,and its like stuff has been altered. Thankyou.

Hi, Since the latest update of my Firefox browser to 105.0.1 (64 bit) on my Mac with operating system 10.13.6 I'm getting messages as the enclosed picture. It appears on upper right corner when I open Firefox. It comes with a sound signal. It appears many times in one hour. How to get rid of that problem? I have another application, from Sophos, to protect from viruses and other attacs. Sophos say that there are no problems. My Mac is clean. Possible to sort out the problem, please?

The message in Swedish translated to English: "McAfee: Firewall crashes via musicinmysoul.biz TROJAN-virus detected. Click here..." McAfee is not installed in my Mac...

I updated my Firefox today and now videos do not play.

I had this problem back in April after an update and I spent weeks troubleshooting it. Eventually I got it to work after trying all of the following (then, and again now):

Things I've Tried: 1.) Clearing data (cache and cookies) 2.) Turning off "Strict Mode" 3.) Running CCleaner 4.) Disabling/enabling HW acceleration 5.) Checking that the DRM box is checked (and trying it without it checked) 6.) Refreshing Firefox 7.) Uninstalling/Reinstalling 8.) Updating my Windows install 9.) Updating drivers 10.) Disabling all Firefox extensions 11.) Running without extensions 12.) Running in Firefox Troubleshooting Mode 13.) Running Windows in Safe Mode with Networking 14.) Running a fresh install of Firefox without signing in after deleting all traces of Firefox from my PC (including Program Data folders, registry entries, etc.)

What finally worked back in April was to dive into "about:config" and change "media.rdd-processenable" to "false".

That fix does not work this time around.

In the meantime I've been using Brave and having no issues. I've tried video playback in Chrome, Opera, and Edge on this computer with no issues. This playback problem is exclusive to Firefox.

Video playback still works just fine on my 4 home PCs running Windows 10 and Pop_OS (3 self-built, one Asus laptop) using this same build of Firefox.

Other/Rant: I suspect this is a Firefox/Windows 11 problem. Most likely this is not something I can fix myself, but it's incredibly frustrating since I'm buried deep in the Mozilla ecosystem and use it for work. I'd prefer not to have to swap between browsers just so I can watch videos; too many windows open on this tiny work laptop isn't fun to juggle. Basic video playback is the #1 thing I use my web browser for at both work and home so it'd be nice if this irritating, months-long, unacceptable issue were resolved. A modern browser that has video playback issues? What good is it then? What's most irritating is that it seems I'm the one of a very small number of users with this issue, since I see very little posted about it online.

I've been a Firefox user primarily for almost half a decade now - moved over from Chrome for privacy issues. Never had a problem until 4/22 of this year and considering it's still an issue 3 months later... it has me re-evaluating the reliability and my commitment to an otherwise amazing browser.

I have used Firefox for years as my main browser and have my gmail on both iPad and iPhone come up without having to sign in each time. Now on my iPad, Google gives me a message that my browser may be insecure and I have to sign in each time which is highly inconvenient and irritating. Each time, Google asks to switch my browser to Chrome. Can you tell me what is going on? Thanks -

Full-screen video doesn't stretch to sides of display on M2 MacBook Air

The attached photos show that the video does not reach the left and right sides of the display. I know that the video not stretching to the top and bottom of the display is normal. The display is 16:10 and the video is 16:9 or 21:9 (plus, the new MacBook notch/menu bar thing). The only way to stop the issue from happening is to put the Firefox app in full-screen mode before putting a video in full-screen mode.

  • The issue is across all websites (YouTube; HBO Max; Netflix; Hulu; etc.).
  • It happens every time I launch a video in full-screen
  • The only way to avoid the issue is to put the Firefox app in full-screen first, then launch the video in full-screen
  • This issue has been happening since I got the laptop last month
  • I've checked all my extensions to ensure they aren't responsible
  • This doesn't happen in Safari or Chrome

My computer is an M2 MacBook Air; the display is set to its default resolution of 2560 x 1664. It's running macOS Monterey version 12.6 and Firefox version 105.0.1.

I'd appreciate some help with stopping firefox from wanting to update each time I open it. I've seen a couple fixes from googling. Uninstall and re download, tried that. I saw to check if it's got the run as administrator checking in properties. It does not. Also when I click on the update in the firefox menu it just takes me to the download firefox page...which is ironic.

No idea what else to do. Help would be great.

When printing a document from a website, font is zoomed in--too large and makes text run off the page. This does not occur with Word documents or in Microsoft Edge browser. It just started a couple of days ago. Not sure if related to some update? Running Windows 8. My browser zoom is set to 100% but when I print the font is huge. I tried reducing my browser zoom but then the websites were too small.

I mark student scripts, doc, docx and pdf, many of which are downloaded in a 2-3 day marking session. So opening the files needs to be easy and slick. But it doesn't work well any more - even worse than previously. How can I get Firefox to download and open the file automatically when clicking on the link? "They" seem to be putting barriers in the way of efficient working.

I'm a web developer and I've been using the web developer Responsive Design Mode for some testing.

Unfortunately the default resolution is 320x480 and while I do occasionally test this resolution (it's our bare minimal mobile resolution) it's obnoxious to have to always choose the drop down menu to change the resolution every-single-time!

I've already searched through about:config settings for queries such as 320 and 480 separately.

So: how do I change the Responsive Design Mode default resolution?
