I've been trying to get a video to play for over a day now, drm-controlled content is checked but firefox won't install the widevine plugin, it just keeps saying that it will install shortly. I even deleted the cache in hopes to fix the problem, but it did nothing. What can I do to fix this? Also, and I don't know if this is a related problem, some websites just don't show up. It will say they are loaded but all I get is a blank screen (dailymotion and instagram so far).

I have it set in setting to open in Firefox. it is continuing to automatically download all PDFs and it is eating into my data! please help. I have to get this to stop or I will no longer be able to click on any PDFs with Firefox anymore. I have also tried setting it to always ask, but if I do that and then tell it to open, then it STILL DOWNLOADS THE FILE! I cannot understand why anyone would ever want files they just wanted to read to just randomly download. I am a genealogy researcher and used to click on dozens of PDFs a day to read, now I can't with Firefox or I won't have internet for half the month after I use up my data. There has to be someway to stop this, I don't like other browsers, but right now, if it involves a PDF I have to use a different browser. (also quite annoying to have to delete multiple files that I never wanted to download - I was using Firefox to pay a bill and downloaded it SIX times) Please help!

I have a tracking app on macOS Monterey that is following me around

On Firefox settings I came cross some locations where I see Google Chrome like on page info about:home or Application Basics: Google Location Service Key and Google Safe browning Key. Also, on a link called Survey where there is Google forms to fill out. I don't use Google Chrome because of the issues Google Chrome creates when I go on my the websites. Why are these Google things in Firefox and is there a way to remove them?

After the last update (October 7th), SOME videos stopped playing for me. They just show an error. On the same YouTube, some video plays normally, and some gives an error. Tried safety mode. Already tried disabling add-ons, checked all settings. I did everything that was in the FAQ. Did not help. Everything works fine in other browsers. And I can't understand the pattern of videos NOT playing.

My Firefox (Windows 10) updated to 105.0 this morning. I have https://www.google.co.uk/ as my homepage and Firefox always used to focus on the Google webpage search bar on startup.

Now it focuses on the address bar instead (i.e. https://www.google.co.uk/ is selected). How can I make it focus on the webpage search bar on startup again instead?

I already found this thread from last year https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1334131 and tried changing browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar to false but it didn't have any noticeable effect and the issue is still present.

Many thanks.

Firefox currently blocks port 10080 to protect against a presumed security threat. Linksys routers use port 10080 to allow users to log in to the guest network so Firefox has rendered Guest Network logins to be unaccessable forcing router owner to allow "guests" to log in to the the primary lan and potentially cause issues with the very network they are trying to protect from outside issues. Firefox needs to provide a way for guests to log into the guest network within their software... particularly in the ios and android versions of the Firefox apps. Please provide a reasonable workaround so that I don't put my network at risk by allowing guests to log in to my primary network.

When expanding any video to full screen mode, the video does not occupy the entire screen. However, if Firefox itself is in full screen mode, then the video will occupy the full screen.

I tested this on YouTube and another website's video player and was able to consistently replicate the issue.

I installed Evernote Webclipper on Firefox on my Macbook Air, but the icon/tool does not display so is not usable. I used the "customize toolbar" info to drag the extension icon to the toolbar. Clicking on that put me back on the add-ons page, did not open the extension. I restarted, restored defaults, removed and re-installed Evernote still no go. VERY frustrated. Any ideas from anyone welcome. Thanks.

I am using Firefox 105.0.1 on a Windows 11 computer. I have sufficient gpu and cpu power to run 4k videos in full screen with no choppiness or lag. However, when I exit full screen mode it seems as if frames are being skipped. I am using LocalCDN, Ublock Origin, and container tabs.

Is there any reason for this to be occuring?

Thanks

What's going on here & how can I fix it? Thanks!
