I have looked up every variation of this question under the goddamn sun, and all I can ever find is "how can I KEEP audio playing after I lock my phone screen?"--which is not what I'm looking for.

Long story short, I've been using YouTube on the Firefox browser app because it has ad block and I refuse to pay for YouTube premium just to get rid of the insidious amount of ads the app has that I can't be rid of otherwise. It's not as good at the app, I'll admit, but there's no intrusive ads trying to sell me crap, so I'm willing to deal with the downsides.

The problem is that audio from YouTube in the Firefox app on Android continues to play if it was playing when I locked the screen, or if I was playing audio in my car and the app was never exited (so to speak) before I locked the screen, audio will either keep playing in the former case, or it will start playing as soon as the bluetooth connects to my car again once I get back in and turn it on.

How do I STOP this from happening? There's no settings within the app or my phone (that I can find) that will help with this. I don't know if it's a Firefox issue or an issue with my phone, but the audio thing doesn't happen with ANY other app I have. Only Firefox, and it's driving me crazy. I don't know how to keep it from doing so without the added step of making sure I close the app before I lock the screen, but I don't always remember to do so, and that's the problem. Please help me, because I'm almost about to give up on this app, too.

If it's relevant and it'll help, I have a Samsung Galaxy S22+.

checking box within a Tab on yahoo mail will immediately open that entry and then freeze further operation until the screen is shut down. This happens on my wife's HP lap top i5 Pavilion 4.00 ram. ie: inbox tab will show a number of email - a dozen or so - followed by grey empty areas. The tab indicates 100+ total in inbox. Selecting one box opens the email but locks up any activity on that email & must be shut down to exit. The identical situation happens when I access my email on her machine. She is using Firefox 105.0.1 HOWEVER, on my machine, HP desktop AMD A8 8.00 Ram, both email addresses do not lock up, multiple boxes can be checked and work as expected. My desk top uses Firefox 104.4 This began happening within the past couple of weeks and I can not debug the situation. Any pointers ??

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.

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 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 -

A website I use has support chat that uses gosquare. On my desktop Mac OS FF, it only shows single line of text area no matter how much text I type. My MacBook Air FF works fine (synced and therefore has the same extensions installed). Safari, Chrome, and Brave all shows it properly. It's only the desktop Mac FF that's showing this error.

I've been opening Safari whenever I need to contact support for a while, but it's very cumbersome as FF is my main browser and one that's open all the time.

Hardware acceleration is already off on both desktop and MacBook Air so that's not the issue.

I have no idea how to read the developer codes, but enabled developer tools out of curiosity in console mode. I see bunch of yellow boxes with error messages saying:

Loading failed for the <script> with source "https://data2.gosquared.com/......." and a long line of URL.

The same message appears to be repeating about 5 to 6 times.

What could be causing this error?

Just tried doing the same on the MacBook Air and it's showing the same yellow boxes so I'm not sure even if this is a symptom of the problem.

I'm stumped. If I must, I can use other browser for the support chat feature, but if someone could point me in the right direction to get this resolved, I'd very very grateful.

Thanks.

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.

I tried reducing my browser zoom but then the websites were too small.
