Though YouTube videos play well, every 10-30 seconds or so, there's a frame or two where it goes back a quarter to half of a second. I've tried using the h246ify plugin addon, but it changed nothing. I see problems with video and audio playback are quite common in Firefox, but I haven't seen too many in Quantum (especially something so little as a random stutter). Any help is greatly appreciated, though it's not a very game-breaking problem (I've had this issue since Quantum came out and I installed Windows).

How to stop videos from loading on metered connection?

I'm currently using nightly and, while videos with audio are muted by media.autoplay.ask-permission, and further they are paused if you also set allow-muted to false, the problem is that they still load.

On a metered [or slow] connection, this is a big problem.

Viewing a news article on ABC [for example] pre-loads the entire video in the background.

To make matters worse; Even after the entire video has been cached, a steady stream of 200KB/s is still continually streamed from the CDN.

Example link: https://abcnews.go.com/US/noreaster-season-east-coast/story?id=58738494

If you monitor bandwidth with Firefox's network monitor, or a 3rd party tool [like jnettop for Linux], you'll see that the page continues to load video data.

Not only would I expect it to not load any if playback is disabled, but it certainly shouldn't continue to load data, perpetually, after the entire video has been buffered.

I went to the site at this link (DO NOT CLICK!!!): http:// 134.249.116.78 /index.php The URL Google said the link would lead to is this: www. javcolor .com/ytvvo4l/npeeo6is.php?dtjfygku=embed...

It tried to brute force open dialogs to get me to download something and kept popping up all sorts of crap. It prevented me from closing the tab by opening up endless dialogs. I finally was able to close the tab by pressing ESC rapidly.

So my suggestion is to allow closing the current tab even if a dialog has focus in the application. This would not allow a website to pop up save dialogs and other dialogs preventing you from closing the tab. Honestly with the current architecture of applications I am not sure this is possible if the dialog is modal.

So I guess is there any kind of emergency mechanism to prevent this kind of thing already? I have pop ups blocked in Firefox settings. I just have never seen a someone abuse the save file dialog like this.

Perhaps I need some third party plugin to protect myself from this. I used to run Noscript, but ran into issues with usability of websites. I also got weary of having to enable servers all the time.

I updated firefox to version 63.0 but it crashes continuously. I tried all the solutions you suggested. I reseted and restarted it in safe mode but the result is the same. This is the code of the last crash:

bp-65ca3cad-37fb-42c1-9431-a028c0181026

I can not send this request from firefox because it does not work so I have no chance to click “automatically add”

What can I do?

I need my saved passwords because Firefox used to log me in Facebook every time i went there but after the update that is gone as well ????? I know nothing about computers and was lucky enough to only waste 2 hours trying to figure out how to do this ???? I have no freaking idea how I will ever get an answer to get help so I hope everyone enjoyed reading this amusing problem!!! Fuck computers and computer life I should have filed a law suit against Texas A&M for forcing me to use these demonic pieces of excrement!!!

Since the last couple of days, I see that Firefox holds a lock for places.db for the whole time while Firefox is open. The problem manifests itself when I use alfred workflow to do a search for a firefox bookmark by a keyword. I see that the workflow written in Python crashes with

`sqlite3.OperationalError: database is locked`

When I close Firefox, the script is working fine. When I open it again - the script is not operational again. Tried safe mode - the same result.

This was working fine for years and the symptom points that it was changed recently and now Firefox holds a lock during the whole time it is open. I guess previously the database lock was acquired per bookmark write transaction.

FF 63.0 macOS

Is it a known issue? Why was this change made?

Thanks!

I understand the basic concepts of tracking protection but I've been unable to find answers to a few specific questions. I found some documentation here in the questions / answers section but it didn't provide all the answers.

1. Do I need to clear existing cookies to remove the myriad of sites already tracking me before turning on tracking protection? Or, will turning it on do an immediate filter on my existing cookies?

2. Will turning off tracking stop sites that I want to retain login information for from retaining the "login" cookie infor i.e. are we close to a full "cookie block" with anti-tracking? Or does FFox have some creative algorithm (or list) that allows it to distinguish between tracking cookies and less offensive cookies? Concurrently, is there a way to allow a "tracking cookie" if I need it to retain information for a site I'm comfortable with?

3. One specific tracking question: Will eliminating tracking cookies stop (specifically) Google's cross site advertising, where you look at a product on site A (who shares that info via google) and then a little later google's advertising mechanism pops up those products when you're at site B?

Yesterday, the Firefox icon on the task bar turned into what looked like a blank sheet of paper. When I closed Firefox the icon disappeared. I have reinstalled Firefox multiple times and it works until I shut it down - then the icon on the task bar disappears. So I search for Firefox on my computer and click on it and then I get a message which says to install the latest version. Then I get a message to close the other version of Firefox which is running - but there isn't any.

I have mozilla set to notify me when an update is ready but I just watched it update with no input from me.

example: [no input] Double click on the Firefox icon on the desktop and it says wait while we install the latest update. Then the little updater box with the progress bar opens showing update in progress. I DID NOT OK AN UPDATE!

How can I rely on software that does not follow settings? I am using Win 10 and the most current {NOW) firefox thanks to it updating without my permission. This is also why I now use Chrome as my default browser.

I cannot find anywhere in Firefox settings that is telling this site to start up nor any reason for Firefox to even be open. I definitely shut Firefox down when I'm finished browsing. There are some 'Recent Highlights" and one of them is showing that page, but I am unable to remove them.
