For a few months, I have encountered an issue with videos playback on my browser. On most websites (including Reddit, Dailymotion, and even some videos on YouTube), whenever I scrub back a video, it will stop for about ten seconds, while the audio keeps playing.

My current extensions are: Metamask, Bionic Reader, uBlock Origin, Return Youtube Dislike, and TWP Translate Web Pages. I have tried using Troubleshooting mode, but the problem persisted, so I think it's not because of my extension.

My OS is Opensuse Tumbleweed, with Firefox version 155.0.3. I didn't have this issue with Firefox ESR on my previous Debian 11 installation. I hope someone can find a solution for this, as it is extremely troublesome switching to Chrome whenever I want to watch videos.

When I go into fullscreen on firefox macos, hovering near the top shows the traffic lights (fullscreen, minimize, close window buttons) and moves everything down. This may be expected behavior, but it is very annoying as when you try to open new tabs the tab bar moves out of the way of the traffic lights, and the traffic lights area is around the size of the tab bar. Is there any way to make the traffic lights always visible or keep them from moving?

When I play a video in fullscreen, there is a strange black border that appears around the video which makes the content smaller than it would otherwise be. This border does not display in Safari or Chrome, just in Firefox. It also occurs in every media player I've tested, including YouTube and Netflix.

Annoyingly, I can't get this to show up in a screenshot. It seems like Firefox guesses the aspect ratio or resolution wrong when it puts media in fullscreen, and it has the effect of downsizing the actual interactive part of the display. Meaning, I can't move my mouse into the border area to take a screenshot of it.

I'm on an ARM Macbook running MacOS 13.5, if that matters.

Is this a bug, and/or is there a way to fix this?

I noticed that someone else had this question, but instead of answering it, it just got archived.

When browsing Youtube, the browser Back Button doesn't work. For example, if I start on the Youtube main page, then click on a video, it will show the video. But then, when I click the browser's "Back" navigation buttion, it does not take me back to the main page. The URL in the address bar will be the main page, but it will continue to display the video I just watched instead.

This only seems to happen on Youtube. It's been a problem for a while - possibly as much as 2 years or even more. And it doesn't happen every single time. However, it has been happening a lot more frequently lately.

It's almost as if Firefox just doesn't want to refresh.

I've tried clearing the cache. The problem persists. I've dried disabling all add-ons. It still happens. I've tried running it in troubleshooting mode. Still a problem.

I've tried to duplicate this in Microsoft Edge; it doesn't seem to happen there.

I've been searching for a solution on HOW to edit HTML files (for websites) on my new laptop. I used to use IE11 (Internet Explorer 11), on Windows XP / 7 (32 bit), which worked spot on, the steps were as follows: (I write websites from scratch most of the time) 1) Click on, say, index.html 2) IE11 shows the actual page 3)Click on View/ Source 4)The source code shows up in Notepad 5) Edlt the code, Save and click Reload the webpage. You can straightaway see the changes.

Currently my new laptop runs Win 11 pro, Microsoft does NOT support IE11 anymore, I can however run IE11 as a add-on, BUT it does not work very well . I also tried a couple of free dedicated editing programs also, BUT they are exceedingly clumsy to use and can't equate to the old IE11 at any level. Somewhere I read that Firefox ( i have v115) can emulate what IE11 could do, hence I am on this forum posing the question, as i can't find the solution,

Anyone in the same boat?

Please share your ideas, Many thanks

After removing elements from a website with another add-on, I'm left with a considerable white gap at the top.

I can manually change (pointless) the margin-top property to -100px, but how do I do this with the Stylus add-on?

Stylus doesn't like negative values:

margin-top -100px

10:20 Expected "{" but found "-100px".

Is there a lighter/simpler alternative to Stylus?

I have multiple internal websites, which all follow the pattern of [site.one.two] which resolves fine using the internal DNS server i have configured by going to https://site.one.two and through other programs via site.one.two, and all the [one.two] suffixes are blacklisted from being resolved with DoH in firefox, but it still forces a web-search, even with searching from address bar being turned off, instead of resolving through my local DNS server (local server resolves local domain suffixes, anything else gets resolved through cloudflare DNS). I haven't found a fix in any other forums, and there are enough unique internal addresses that manually adding each and [every site.one.two] as an exception would be something i would like to avoid. Is there any way to tell firefox to resolve through DNS first for addresses or domain suffixes?

Reposting from https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/firefox-upgrade-from-115-116-results-in-broken-screen-capture/121964

Howdy folks!

I am on Arch Linux and recently upgraded Firefox from 115 to 116 and this broke WebRTC screen capture. Whenever I try to share my screen in Microsoft teams and Google Meet, the participants only see a black screen with a cursor. I am able to reproduce the issue on this test page. I had to downgrade to 115 in order to “fix” this critical feature. Before that it was broken in 114 and I had to use Chromium for presentations. I no longer want to touch Chrome with a 100 ft pole since they are trying to introduce Web Environment Integrity.

The only bug I have been able to find is from three years ago:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1640771

I don’t want to add a “me too” comment, but was wondering how to show/give my support to get this issue fixed? It is crippling to my work workflow, and I don’t want to be on 115 forever. I am an engineer so I can provide advanced support to a Firefox dev, just not development as firefox is gargantuan beast of a code base.

Any guidance or pointers would be appreciated, Thanks!

Hi,

I have been trying to use the extension "Sidebery" to replace "Tree Style Tab"

If my tabs are nested, bookmarking the tab tree will give me nested folder structure in firefox's bookmark.

If I right click on the top level folder in the bookmark, select "open all in tabs", firefox will only open those bookmarks in the 1st level folder, but won't open those bookmarks in the nested folders.

I wonder is there a way to do it? That is, open all bookmarks in a folder with those in the nested folder, all at once?

Best, Jake

Prior to getting some desktop PC upgrades that required a new install of Windows 11 and a new install of Firefox, I backed up my entire PC (yea!).

Now that I have re-installed Firefox, I see that I have none of my saved bookmarks and so I want to restore the Firefox profile - all of it or at least the bookmarks.

I have tried following the Firefox instructions for this, but am apparently not doing it right.

I can't seem to locate the bookmarks file, for starters, in my backed up files. I find the profile but I don't find anything like places.sqlite.

Can someone help me so that I am locating the right (and complete) files, copying them correctly, and then switching to the new/old profile correctly?

Thanks in advance.

I had something like 7 windows open 10 minutes ago (yes I am a tab hoarder). I was trying to run a game that used a lot of RAM, so I decided that I would close ALL of my firefox tabs in hope that the game would run smoother with the 5gb that Firefox was using. I didn't think anything of losing the tabs because I had accidentally closed windows in the past using the big red 'x', and an easy ctrl + shift + t always restored the entire window no problem. When I tried to open firefox again within the next 5 minutes, only 3 of the windows restored themselves, I assume using the general > startup > open previous windows and tabs setting. Using Ctrl + Shift + T did nothing to restore them. Please help, as the windows that did reopen were the ones that I cared the least about.

Just to preface I have already tried looking for a similar issue in support and most of the answers are like "just make sure to not be in private browsing" but I am sure that I am not and my extensions are all allowed in private browsing anyways. I also know this is not a theme issue as after I removed ublock origin and re-added it to firefox the extension icon showed up in the menu just like usual, but I do not want to do this for every single extension as I have a large amount and I am worried about personal settings that I have saved being undone. In the past I have used this same firefox setup without any of these issues whatsoever and without changing any settings since then.

The main issue is that when I click the extensions menu toolbar icon (the puzzle piece) it only takes me to about:addons. On this page I can confirm all my extensions are there, and I know that they are working, due to things like ads still being blocked from ublock origin or tracking links being blocked from clearURLs. However there is no icon for them after clicking/right clicking the the extensions puzzle piece, or when using the "customize toolbar" feature, or in the overflow menu, or in any other possible place. I have also tried telling the toolbar to reset to default and this does not help. Since the puzzle piece icon never shows me a menu, there is no way to right-click an extension and get the menu option to "pin to toolbar" as this option can't be found in the about:addons page as far as I have found.

Is there any way to fix this beyond just re-adding every single one of my extensions?

After updating a W10 laptop from 115 to 116 of FF the user started having problems with getting to different websites (sites they worked on/with regularly). The problem is the cert DB. The doc I found says that it is cert8.db. Actually it is now cert9.DB.

What I had to do was go to task manager and kill a task that was holding the cert9.db file. Then I could rename it (cert9.old.db). Then restarted their laptop and FF came up and started fixing the cert file (as expected). This seems to have fixed their problem.
