The 76.01 update of Firefox has completely broken the audio function in my browser. Youtube and Yahoo Finance specifically. I have not checked further. Yes I know Windows 7 is not supported by Microsoft, but Firefox has claimed that it would support Windows 7 indefinitely. Yesterday when I opened Firefox a message said that audio and video might not work if I did not have DRM enabled. I checked and saw that I had DRM enabled, but audio did not work. A button in the message said Enable DRM, I clicked the button anyway. No audio. I restarted Firefox, no audio. I restarted my computer, no audio. I opened Chrome and everything is working fine. I did not even okay this update. I have my preferences set to NOT automatically update. it seems like Firefox is ignoring my preferences. Firefox should provide an instant downgrade to the previous version that supported audio. In the past I have downgraded a few times until things were working smoothly, but it's a headache. Now I understand Firefox makes it even harder to do that. I may just switch to Chrome permanently.

I try to add the two-step-authentication to my account, but when I scan the QR-code and enter the generated security code I get the error message "two-step-authentication required"; so it tells me I have to enable two-step-authentication before I can enable two-step-authentication?

I understand the newest version of Firefox offers support for WebP images, which is cool and great... but not when I need to download those images for use on my computer. As an artist I need to be able to save things as .jpg or .png for my art programs (or even preview) to be able to open them. Is there any way to make this an option, or to not default to webp when saving images?

I've also tried changing the extension on the file using the "all files" option but it just corrupts the file and won't open them.

Hello everyone!

Firstly, greetings to the community, I hope you people are staying safe. Please refer to my previous questions number one and number two. Do note that my second question has NOT received A SINGLE REPLY from anybody. I have now updated to version 72 and then subsequently to version 76.0.1 (which the latest one at the time of writing this question. I am still suffering from the same problem of stuttering 1080p 60fps YouTube videos due to frame drops, especially using the VP9 codec, although other codecs also drop a few frames. Do note that the audio works just fine in real-time without any lag, and this problem exists ONLY for 1080p @ 60 fps, not for any other resolution or frame rate. I have referred to the following links to try and solve my problem:-

  1. https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/8qhbhg/h264_1080p_60fps_stutter_youtube_vimeo_etc/
  2. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1277519
  3. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/72.0.2/releasenotes/
  4. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1608485

The Firefox version 72.0.2 release notes categorically state that the issue has been resolved and even points to the bugzilla page for the same. But it still exists even in version 76.0.1, which is surprising. I have tried every possible combination I can think of, from setting media.media-capabilities.enabled = false in about:config to disabling specific codecs and hardware acceleration, none of which solved the issue permanently to my satisfaction. A few settings, at times, improved the issue slightly but there was no permanent solution, even though this has been alluded to in a previous release note. Do note that my graphics drivers are updated and this issue is Firefox-specific, i.e other browsers work just fine. Even the older versions of Firefox work fine, as stated earlier. I would like to state that I prefer using the VP9 codec because other codecs take a toll on my relatively low-bandwidth network connection and this leads to longer buffering times (VP9 does not have this problem). I humbly request the community members and volunteers to help me in this regard, and if need be, point me to the proper channel for lodging a bug report directly to Mozilla.

Thanks and regards,
Preetodeep Dev.

P.S:- If this issue is not resolved, then I will have no choice but to go back to Firefox version 62.0.2, which works just fine with all the default settings.

I randomly lose bookmarks. I save them to a subfolder and check that they are in fact there. a few days later, gone. Yes, I tried restoring and checked history.

The backup is a week old. The history is incomplete. BUT it was there yesterday. It's happened before, and doesn't seem related to updates. Any thoughts?

I used to see a feature in a question/answer editor here at FireFox help that allowed images to be displayed inline instead of only as thumbnails at the end of an answer or as links in the text of an answer. I saw answers with inline images today. How do you do that? Attached image shows what I mean. The attached image also is an example of an image not displaying inline.

Recently, when a popup window appears, the toolbar doesn't have buttons for any of my addons.

In about:config, I'd intentionally set dom.disable_window_open_feature.toolbar to true (following the solution provided in: question 1206512).

Previously, this was successful in ensuring that popup windows got the full toolbar, but now it has stopped working.

I'm not sure exactly which release this started with.

Steps to reproduce:

1) Set dom.disable_window_open_feature.toolbar to true.

2) Visit https://jeffersonscher.com/res/popit.html and follow the third link.

3) The window that pops up has no toolbar icons for the installed extensions.

I imported bookmarks from Safari on my Macbook Pro. When I click on the 'Bookmarks Menu' and 'Other Bookmarks' about half of the folders do not show any bookmarks. However, when I open the Bookmarks through the sidebar, everything shows up....all folders and contents. So all my bookmarks were imported but half of the folders' contents do not show up if I go through the Bookmarks and Other Bookmarks menu. Going through the menu is easier so I hope someone has a solution. Thanks.

Say that I have a login at a site, and I got there previously with another browser. When I go to the same site with Firefox for the first time, that site's ID field might drop down to show a number of entries, and many times (but not always) there is no "View Saved Logins" below the list.

Here is an example of a site than many readers of this might not go to: DevonTechnologies.com and this might be the same for you. Devon's login ID wants an email address, and the field dropped down to show 29. A bunch of them were emails I would swear on my kid's heads I have never used anywhere, not even in another browser, and one was a misspelling of my own email address. Only a small few were addresses that were valid elsewhere. But here is the rub: A search of about:logins for the weird addresses and my misspelling came up empty.

Further, I can go to another site I have never visited with Firefox, and I might not get a drop-down at all or I might get just one of my three typical email addresses.

For those sites where I have used Firefox for the first time, the questions are

  • Where did Firefox get those spurious addresses?
  • Where did Firefox get a good address, and why did it leave out the "usual" others?
  • Why are the odd logins not found at about:logins?

I have Firefox 76.0.1 under Catalina 10.15.4, and I sync with Lockwise.

Thanks.

If I can specify a different default directory, this problem will be solved.

Nowhere in the settings can i find info about automatic erase options. It there is no solution for this i will stop using firefox. I am the boss of my browser. And a browser killing my tabs when i look away is not acceptable.

I have a W7 laptop with IE 11, and Firefox. I need both browsers for different programs (scan and to deposit checks, and Mozilla to manage photos in my website). I never run the browsers simultaneously. When I use Firefox, all is well until I suddenly see a blue screen with a bunch of printing. The screen does not last long enough for me to read everything, but it does mention if this is not the first time I've seen this screen, I am supposed to do something with BIOS chaching or shadowing. I have NO idea what this means or how to do this, as I use my computer for basic, simple programs. I haven't downloaded any new programs, and have been reluctant to download new Firefox patches since the blue screen seemed to happen more frequently after updating Firefox. I've scanned for viruses, and have also run chk dsc, to no avail. This never happens when I use IE11, only when I use Firefox. If someone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it. However, please don't tell me to get W10. I don't care how wonderful this OS is supposed to be, I cannot use it. My one laptop with W10 has only been used once and I refuse to use it. If you have suggestions, please explain them simply since I am NOT computer saavy. Thank you.

The built-in screenshot tool is very useful but these popup messages ("Your shot has been copied to the clipboard") are so annoying. Popups don't disappear automatically and you need to click on it every single time you take a screenshot. These little nuances are ruining my user experience of using FireFox because I take screenshots often. Is there any way to make it disappear in X seconds? I didn't find any in about:config. PS: Sorry for engrish.
