Hi,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

Flash drive suddenly Read Only, unable to completely clear Firefox cache, “Error extracting files”

I’ll try posting this on the Micro Center and Mozilla Firefox forum pages, since no one answered on the LMDE forum. We really can’t afford to be involved with computers, and had to go to Linux when support ran out for Windows XP. Since writing this I found the Disks utility, (when searching for how to give a name to flash drives), which has buttons for “Check Filesystem” and “Repair Filesystem”. A check confirmed corruption, but trying “Repair”, twice, each time brought, “Error while repairing filesystem”.

It all started with downloading a large, 709.5 MB, Zip archive of FLAC audio files, (from the Internet Archive). With our slow connection, and the horribly underpowered old Compaq NetBook I was using, it took an hour and a half. (Compaq Mini CQ 10-100, originally Windows XP, now running Linux Mint Debian Edition4 32 bit.) I was downloading to a flash drive, and extracted the folder with files to the same flash drive. It said, “Error extracting files”, something it often says, and I haven’t been able to find an explanation of what that really means and what to do about it. I’ve simply been checking that the files are all there, and if not, fetching the missing ones singly. I don’t know why the downloaded files have larger MB numbers than are given on the dropdown lists for FLAC and VBR MP3 files under “Download Options”. I figure perhaps the error message is triggered by the MB discrepancy.

In this case, the two files, two sides of an LP, were there, with the usual larger MB count, but when I tried to Rename them, and when I tried “Properties”, I was told that I didn’t have the permissions to do that, and “Error setting permissions: Read-only file system”. Same thing when I tried to Delete the Zip archive, the folder with its two files, or the files separately. I tried Rename and Delete also on our better computer with the same result.

So the 64 GB flash drive with 11.8 GB space is now Read-only, and I can’t find what could have caused it, and how to, or if it’s possible to, undo that. (Micro Center 3.1 64 GB, five for $27. on Amazon, where the top reviewer neatly explains how they are, in effect, “factory seconds”.)

I hope it’s even safe to use it, to play all the music I’d downloaded to it, and copy files to disc. Would it be safe to play those two sides of that last record, or should it be avoided? I wonder, if I were to copy everything, except that last Zip archive and the folder and files extracted from it, off the now read-only flash drive, if it would even let me erase-reformat it, and if it did, if I should use it, or is it defective?

Another consequence, it would seem, of that download, is that there are 5.3 MB in the Firefox browser cache that will not clear. I found instructions in Mozilla support for how to delete the Firefox cache folder, but the file manager can’t find any such folder. I tried uninstalling and installing Firefox, but it kept my settings, and also that 5.3 MB of something in the cache. Why would something in the cache not clear? Can it be cleared?

So, to reiterate the questions: 1. Why would a flash drive – USB stick – suddenly become read-only? 2. Would that be an indication that the flash drive is defective? 3. Can it be restored to read-write? 4. Could it have been caused by a corrupt file, presumably corrupted in the long download? 5. Would the corrupt file also be what is refusing to be cleared from the Firefox browser cache? 6. Can that cache ever again be cleared to “0 bytes”? 7. Will the flash drive allow itself to be reformatted? 8. Is it safe to use the flash drive, either as is - read-only, for the files on it, or if it were to be reformatted? And would it be safe to play the two files of that last record, sitting there, undeletable? 9. What do you do when you get the message, “Error extracting files”? Do you extract again, and do you have it overwrite whatever files were extracted the first time, or “Skip” those? Do you just check that the files are all there and seem to be alright, and figure the error message was a false positive, perhaps caused by Checksum discrepancy?

Sorry for submitting such a long set of different but related questions, which include probably wrong notions misinterpreted from answers to similar searched-up questions, and are not necessarily LMDE-centric. I will be grateful for any answers, as will subsequent searchers, since previous discussions to be found online are not very helpful.

so, im lucky enough or ignorant enough not to have used the support forum for about a year now. so, by downloading the latest thunderbird update, things got a bit sideways and i ended up here for instructions. now, i do have (had) an account with the old system. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/user/georgeka thats me!. it is described that it would be somehow linked to a firefox account or something. didnt happen. i decided to manually re-enter my account info to see if i could do it myself. nope. decided to create new account. using chrome i press the login/signup button, but i am taken to a page dedicated to sign in. there is NO register and NO other info. when i type my email to see if i am taken to the next step: Enter your email -> email ZZZZZZZZ@ABC.CDE -> Continue to Mozilla Support, i get the error, Missing parameter: email while the mail shows up on the box. different mail, same result. goes no, futher.

using firefox 88.0.1 64bit, i reach the same point but when i type the email, i am shown the login / reset page.

Hi!

  • I have dark mode enabled both on my windows and Linux partition (in Gnome).
  • I am also logged in to my google account on YouTube.
  • This problem comes up when visiting websites but I notice it especially on YouTube.

When I navigate to YouTube in a new tab, while loading, the light mode flashes for a moment until the dark mode is engaged. This bright flash is painful as I have to readjust my vision for a moment before the dark mode loads.

How do I get Firefox to render the dark mode directly instead of giving me this bright flash? It seems to me like it's a caching issue, that it caches the light mode. When I just started to use Firefox it did not have this problem and would load the dark mode instantly.

Thank you in advance.

I have been sending the same email everyday to colleagues for many years and recently when they try to open the email with a zip file attachment, containg Excel and PDF documents, Firefox warns This file contains a Virus or Malware. It happens occasionally then goes away for a few days only to return a few days after that.

I am using the same method for creation of the files contained, and I am using windows zip. Please help.

AOL is my mail client as it is for the recipients I send this mail to every day, if that makes any difference. It only seems to happen in FF not in Edge or Google Chrome.

I have a PAC file being used with WSS (Web Security Service). We need to mention the egress IP on the WSS portal while using PAC file. If the egress IP is not mentioned and we are using a PAC file we get a Captive portal page. This is how the WSS with PAC file works. This works fine on Chrome and Egde. I do not have any PAC file configured on the Firefox proxy settings. As soon as I launch Firefox, I start to get the captive portal login page on all the browsers (Chrome, Egde, Firefox). As soon as I close Firefox, and refresh the other browsers, everything starts to work again. So it looks like, Firefox is disrupting the internet connection as soon as we launch it. Please help!

There is an older and now archived discussion elsewhere in this forum about this topic: links in Outlook 365 only open in Msft's browsers, specifically now Edge. There was much discussion in the earlier thread about default file formats such as mht and mhtml (I think). The answers seemed to be that Firefox doesn't render those file formats well or at all.

But I don't understand those answers. For this reason: if I let links within email do their thing and open in Edge, then go to the address bar in Edge, copy the URL and "Paste And Go" in Firefox, then Firefox does just fine getting me to the link's destination.

Isn't there an option (somewhere) that will let that link go directly to Firefox? (Yes, Firefox is my Win10 default browser.)

Thanks. Perennially PO'd at Msft FM

Hi all. I am using Windows 10 OS and Microsoft Outlook for emails.

When presented with the dialog box for downloading/saving a file, can Firefox directly attach the downloaded file to a blank email using my email client?

I have done a one-line batch file (which seems to work with "open with") that has the command:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\outlook.exe" /a %1

and it seems to work, but is there an official or quicker solution? one that doesn't have to involve browsing for the batch file (having to type * or *.* to not show only .exe/.com files) with the "open with" option?

Alternatively is there a right-click context menu with a "send to" or "email to" that opens the email client and a blank email with the downloaded file already attached? (Or possibly there is a mailto or sendto command that can be selected in "open with"?)

Thank you.

Hi, I want to save images in two steps: "right-click ==> Save"

Under "Settings > Files and Applications" I checked the box "Save files to" so I don't have "Always ask you where to save files" but in the context menu, the only option is "save image as" and it always shows a popup that asks for the location where I want to store the image.

How can I get this done? it should be a feature easy to get since Firefox has evolved so much that we can customize almost anything nowadays... an extension by Firefox (or Recommended) that adds a button (a small one in the corner) to just download the image you're hovering over would be amazing but there is none atm.

Thank you for reading this, have a nice day :)
