Netflix won't load content on Firefox

Despite clearing my cookies and cache, going through every step on [this web page|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems#w_check-browser-internals], and trying multiple different Netflix profiles, I cannot seem to get Netflix to load any content on Firefox. This problem seems to have cropped up over the last few days; I last used Netflix on June 11th and had no problems, but tried last night and again this morning to watch anything only to find that it would invariably show me a red loading wheel before presenting me with error code F7111-1105 after several minutes. This seems to be an issue with Firefox on my PC, as I have tried using the Netflix mobile app and (reluctantly) installing Chrome on my PC to test things out -- both had no problems -- yet I'm stumped! Again, I have gone through every option presented by the troubleshooting page; I have refreshed and reinstalled Firefox, made a new Firefox profile and tried it out with no extensions, scanned my PC thoroughly (with no issues presented), and nothing seems to budge.

So, despite selecting "Allow Audio and Video" in the Site Preferences, "AUTOPLAY BLOCKED" continues to show on a tab, and it only goes away once I access the tab. This particularly happens on Youtube media.

You may find attached to this question an image of my about:config settings.

What further can be done to fix this?

Is there a way to autofill for most sites but not autofill for certain sites while still saving passwords through firefox for those sites. I like to store my bank information on firefox behind an master password but it automatically autofills with out asking for the master password. Can I limit the sites that autofill passwords or require the master password in order to autofill? Any suggestions?

There are a couple car forums that have a thread called “Create a Quick Thread”. It appears near the top of the thread listings & is there for convenience.

However most times this thread is opened automatically when I access the forum & opens a text box which in turn I have to close. This started happening about a year ago & I thought it was a forum problem but no one else seems to have the problem. Not the end of the world but the box takes up the height of a full screen & is a PITA to keep closing something I never wanted opened.

I tried the MS Edge browser & a Chromebook & neither automatically opened that line so I’m presuming it’s a FF issue.

If I close out of the forum but keep FF open & go back into the forum, the Quick Thread does not automatically open. IOW FF must be remembering to not open it. I wish it always remembered not to open it. I cannot find any FF setting that would control this behavior.

Any suggestions on how to stop this thread from automatically opening?

The first image shows the line the thread is on.

The second image shows what I normally get greeted with.

Hey folks,

I hope you can help me.

If I press the Escape key three times, it obscures the screen for a second and then rebuilds the frame, so I guess it reloads the page? The attached picture shows my Youtube start page - as you can see, it's just the frame itself but not the scroll bar, so it's about the page, not the whole firefox window itself.

If I press Escape four times, firefox closes the current tab and opens a new one with my start page loaded.

What the Eff is happening here? That can't be a feature, can it? Has anybody experienced anything similar and can point me in the right direction?

Much appreciated

The webpage is loading fine in other browsers like Safari or chrome. Looks like Dark Reader messed up something and removing it didn't reset the state for these websites.

I have multiple google accounts, one is for work which requires VPN login and an extra password. When I type calendar or Gmail into the address bar, it takes me directly to this account. Switching to my personal account requires me to log in to a VPN, do DFA, then switch accounts. How can I ask Firefox to log in to my personal account first instead?

I configured my Windows 10 Firefox proxy to use system proxy settings, and I have a script can based on different network environment modify the system proxy autoconfiguration script address (HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\AutoConfigURL) in registry to update the proxy settings. Internet Explorer works well - new proxy configuration usually become effective in 1 or 2 minutes after the change. However, each time after my script changes the registry proxy address (without FF restart), I have to go to Firefox Tools->Settings->Proxy to manually change it to another value (in my case it's from "Use system proxy settings" to any other value), confirm it, and then change it back. Then FF is able to reload the autoconfiguration script to make it work. This is really a headache.

I just wonder is there a way to notify FF to reload the proxy autoconfiguration script address from registry from command line so that my script can trigger it automatically after the registry is modified?

Thanks.

On my linux laptop I have a lot of saved userids in Firefox that do not have the password saved - which is exactly what I want for some sites (like bank sites and credit card sites) that I want it easy for me to log into but impossible for anybody else. On my Windows desktop now, however (apparently I inadvertently deleted my saved logins), I can't seem to figure out how to duplicate this functionality again, i.e., save the userids but not the passwords. Firefox seems to want to save both, or neither. How do I get my desktop to do exactly what my laptop is doing, save the userid but not the password? Thanks.

Firefox created a second Downloads folder/library when it opens a PDF to view in the browser.

file:///C:/Users/Name/Documents/Downloads/NightSkyNotesJan2022OrionDetail.pdf

I seem to remember finding lots of temp pdfs and other files in a temp folder under user/appdata/local or roaming and having to delete this files manually from time to time. Putting the files in an easy to find folder is a good step but my Downloads Library/folder had previously been moved to D:\Downloads via choose new target from the library properties. D drive is an internal HD, C drive is an SSD. Why didn't Firefox just use the existing Downloads library instead of creating a new one on the C drive?

Ideally, if you are viewing a pdf in a Firefox tab it would delete the file if you did not download it so it does not clog up your drives. If I know i want to keep a pdf I would save to my chosen folder and view in Acrobat instead of reading in a browser tab.

I agree with a previous post i saw requesting an option for the user to specify a temp file folder on another drive when viewing pdfs to preserve some life on the SSD boot drive.
