Hello SUMO Team!

  I always had this question but never really asked it. Why isn't DuckDuckGo or a more privacy based Search engine set as default? You even have to manually add Startpage and others... 

 It just hurts me how a privacy browser has the Google search engine as default after all, most people come to Firefox for privacy and Google is the opposite. Maybe one of the developers can change that?

Thank you so much for trying to help me and Stay Safe!

Firefox 78 sometimes fails to block autoplay, e.g. scrolling the front page of reddit.com or a subreddit will intermittently show videos playing.

This worked in 77. Some about:config entries I'd swear were set in 77 have vanished; I tried adding them manually, but the autoplay blocking is still hit and miss.

Also, not sure if Troubleshooting Information uploaded successfully or the page broke (see screenshot).

Prior to the latest version, I had set "media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed" in about:config to False in addition to blocking both audio and video within the settings so that nothing would autoplay without my input.

I updated to version 78 yesterday, and it seems that "media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed" is now gone from within about:config. I'm getting videos autoplaying within sites like YouTube, despite me setting both audio and video to not autoplay.

Is there anything I can do to ensure that nothing starts playing without me allowing it?

Everytime I open the suggestions in the address bar Search with Google or Search with Amazon appear at the top. You cannot remove them by using the 'forget about this site' feature and if you change the browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus to 'False' you don't get the suggestions. Can you tell me how to permanently remove Search with Google or Search with Amazon from the suggestions. Thank you.

My default language set to English. However, when I open a logon window, my account and browser settings the language switches to Vietnamese. Firefox version is 77 running on Windows 10.

Where do I check the settings to switch back to English? I have only English set in General -> Language. Any other settings that may affects the language I want to use?

Thanks, H Doan

I'm experiencing some trouble on the website Chesstempo. I can't acces some of the functionalities on the site and I can't log out off the site.

I think a resent Firefox update might have changed somethings in regard to browser history and cookies?

My problem: Firefox won't delete cookies and browser history. I did a reset and when that didn't work I had to manually delete sqlite and json files. That worked!.....but I'm still experiencing problems on Chesstempo.

I'm on old hardware here, so the problem could be on my end, but Chesstempo worked fine until recently. Obviously Chesstempo have to have the abillity to set and read cookies to track my activity properly.

Other competing products work fine here?

Any thoughts would be appreciated

Hi guys,

I'm having problems with playing some videos on youtube and all videos on facebook. I have the last version, 77.0.1, 64 bit edition. I'm using a Dell Laptop, not the it would count, with windows 10 PRO, 2004 version.

For some weeks I've started getting the message : "To improve video quality, you may need to install Microsoft's Media Feature Pack". Since then I've had problems playing videos.

I tried everything that I thought of : running FF in safe mode, without addons, I reset it and tried it without anything installed. Added the account again. Nothing. I tried to install the Microsoft Media Feature Pack, but there isn't anything for windows 10 2004 edition. Any solution for this ? PS : I have other systems, a laptop and a desktop, which run the same FF version, with different windows 10 versions, 1903 and 2004, and the videos are working with any problems.

I run Firefox on a number of systems and two of my work computers seem to be unable to check in with the Firefox update servers to get updates. See image for the exact error message.

"Firefox can't update to the latest version. Download a fresh copy of Firefox and we'll help you to install it."

My suspicion is my network team is blocking my browsers from getting to the Firefox update servers but I don't know how to test it. One of my browsers is 77.0, the other is 77.0.1. Both of them give me the error in the image. Both of them insist I'm on the latest version of Firefox when I use 'Help/About Firefox' to check.

If anyone knows what data I should collect to get this figured out I'd appreciate it.

Thanks

Hi Folks, In the last couple of days the display in my Task Bar has changed and I want the 'old' display back.

It used to be that only the first tab I had open was on show and when I clicked on it my browser would pop up, all complete with as many tabs as I had open. If perchance I had two copies of my browser open then they'd appear side by side.

Now however, all opened tabs are on show - and I don't like it. Today for example I have four tabs open (as seen below) and if I hover my pointer over any one of them then it displays as a thumbnail and if I hold my pointer over any one tab then it displays on screen. But I want to go back to the 'old' way with each opened browser showing but with other tabs hidden.

How can I do that?

How to disable: "Your internet connection was restored" notifications? – Terribly annoying and only started in the last version 77.0.1 very recently. I rather switch to another browser if I cannot get rid of this. Checked my 3 plug-ins, but cannot find anything there, nor if it is something on Facebook I cannot find it. Any idea?
