Firefox is not playing any videos on my device. Will typically 'spin' as if loading.

Every site repeats the same stupid troubleshooting steps. I have already: Cleared cookies and cache, Disabled all themes and extensions, Tried in troubleshooting mode, Disabled hardware acceleration, 'refreshed' Firefox, Did a complete uninstall, including deleting %APPDATA%\Mozilla\ and reinstalled.

Videos play just fine in other browsers, like Google Chrome

Running Firefox 97.0.1 (Up to date) on Windows 10, Version 21H2

A site that I use several times every year recently wouldn't open. Response from Firefox is "Access Denied - Certificate issuer not recognized". Also kept getting bumped out of my email account and all my open tabs would close abruptly. The last may have been rectified but I still can't get into the website I want to access.

I've tried different browsers as well so I don't know if it's Mozilla only or my PC. Even if I type in https://www.(pagename).com, it displays as you don't have permission to access http://www.(pagename).com.

I changed nothing on my PC that would cause the problem.

It is sad, I think, that Mozilla/Firefox is willing to close/archive a thread that is not really solved or has reared its ugly head again in versions since the release of 93 (we are now at 97.0.2). I came to this site and registered because I am still having this issue as of 3/6/2022...arg!

I have tried the 3 recommended solutions, with no affect:

I have, as one article suggested, cleared my cache and cookies, started and restarted Firefox; the only thing I have not tried is removing it from my computer and using Chrome (I'm told it is a better browser anyway) as some responders have eluded to.

I hope that responders like "jscher2000, Kymber" will continue the champion this issue until Mozilla gets it "Really" fixed.

Thanks for listening, Wayne

BTW, heres what my dropdowns look like today 3/6/2022 6:17 PM Arizona time.

Running Linux Mint Mate 19.2 on two computers. Starting about 2 weeks ago, when trying to sign into providencejournal.com (with a paid subscription) using Firefox 97.0.1, just one of the computers displays an error message, see attached. We have used that site for years without issues, and the other computer still signs in correctly. On the problem computer I have just installed the Opera browser, for test purposes, and with Opera the sign-in succeeds. In F/F, I have tried disabling extensions, allowing all trackers and cookies, and reinstalling Javascript, all to no avail. preference is to use F/F, can anyone offer a solution?

Hi there,

I cleared my cache after it told me it had stored a gazillion GB in data - but the big number was still there after clearing the cache. Needless to say my harddrive isn't even as big as the GB number shown, so there must be a gremlin in there somewhere? Thought you'd want to know. I'm using the latest Firefox on Mac OS 10.15.7

When Firefox is restarted after updates, or when starting from powered down, or when hitting the home button on the tool bar, I still get multiple tabs opened - none of which are relevant or links which I desire. Seems I've tried everything I can to get this to stop. How do i adjust things so that I just open Firefox without a whole bunch of ancient links that I have to manually close every time? Thank You.

Firefox 97 and previous version CREATES noise in whatever audio is running. Whether it is audio from Audacious, my music player, or audio from the program I am watching on Firefox. How can I stop the noise, which sounds like static from a week station on an old AM radio? Using other browser does not have this audio problem, UNLESS Firefox is running. Even if not actively using Firefox, just having it open on the desktop causes noise. Using Linux Mint 20 64bit. Audio produced by motherboard ASUS Prime B550 Plus with AMD Ryzen 9 3900X processor. Clicking on Firefox Help gets a message saying "Updates disabled by your system administrator" along with the normal text. I didn't disable updates and I am the Admin.

When joining a Zoom meeting hosted on the browser rather than installed Zoom app, my speakers are not working and the troubleshooting error messages says the browser is blocking zoom from accessing the speakers. I can't find a setting in Firefox preferences to block/allow it. Speakers work on YouTube/Vimeo with no problems (speaker volume 100% and not muted). Speakers had been working with Zoom until a couple weeks ago. I don't want to install the Zoom app just because Google hates privacy and and I don't want to help them own my privacy anymore than I must. I use DuckDuckGo for the default search engine, have Ghostery for an Extension/add-on, and have the Firefox browser set for private window always. I have tried various cookie settings for the Zoom meetings and even the dreaded "accept all cookies" and have Firefox cookie handling set to Standard, with deleting all cookies and history upon exit. I am on 64-bit Windows 10 up to date as of 2/16/22, Dell computer updated to same date, and latest update of Firefox 2/18/22. I have done a number of web searches and not finding the speaker topic or error message other than three unanswered help requests from others with the same problem dated from July-Sept 2021.

Hello,

How do I disable or remove these autofill searches that I do not use that appear at the very top. They keep appearing such as searching up gamestop it goes to gamefaq first or searching maps to get google maps, it gives my local city website map instead.

These have become a nuisance as I never visit these sites.

This is not a request for help but a comment on the new version of Firefox. Today a new version of FF was installed on my computer and it wiped out ALL my passwords for EVERY account I own - personal and business. I am extremely pissed off because I have to reset all my passwords (which will take days)! For now on when you offer a new version of FF, warn the individual to back up their passwords and user names.

The question is am I going to keep using FF or just start fresh with another browser to avoid this headache in the future.

You have to up your game.
