Hello, is it me or are more people having issues with streaming HD videos on Amazon Prime Video on Firefox? Strangely, while some titles can be streamed in HD, it is impossible for other titles. However, it works perfectly fine on Chrome!

I have the DRM enabled and everything (otherwise it wouldn't play anything) and yet the issue persists. I also contacted Amazon support and they basically said they'll forward this (whatever).

I'm sure it is a browser issue since I can stream the same title in HD on other browser. I am so angry since I use this browser as the default and this isn't the first time I've encountered this dumb issue either!

This is very bizarre and a specific problem. Ever since I purchased a new HP laptop this has started happening regularly: I would open Firefox and watch a few YouTube videos normally. After maybe the 3rd or so video, ALL the sonud of my entire laptop would stop working. I'd check the volume control and it all shows fine, however I can't hear any sound from anything else, not from other browsers, not from the computer's own media players, nothing, even though there is no 'muted' icon showing on anything. The moment I shut down Firefox ALL the sound comes back straight away. This has been happening constantly and I've had this laptop for a few months now (it didn't happen on my old laptop). So yes, obviously I've restarted the laptop loads of times. It keeps happening.

What is going on??

Sorry if this has been said, i haven't been able to find it using the words i know. First of all, i'm newbie in general so if anything is missing in the explanation just let me know. My computer uses Linux ( Ubuntu 17.10).

The problems are several and are connected, i believe. Some years ago, when updating the firefox browser throught the "official app store", the name of which i only know in catalan, "programari" and haven't been able to find the analogous name right now. The update was actually an installation of firefox quantum that duplicated my Firefox browsers ( at least in icons, i had both ) as i now had the updated one and the old one, which i simply stopped using. Several problems arose in using this format , for example when i try to open from terminal Jupyter lab i needed to have already open the quantum version, otherwise it would simply open it in the old browser and that was a problem for other things not interesting here maybe. There came a moment where this new so called quantum browser stopped working, i.e. it crashed in completly white screen, while not being able to close it, and, furthermore, without being able to uninstall it, again from this app store, as everytime i tried it the app store window would just show me that it was working ( i pressed uninstall and the "cercle around" dynamic icon showed), but no matter the time i left it to finish it never did/does. Now i'm trying to, again, update the OLD firefox browser i had because it is so old ( version 61 ) that many webs can't even be used ( Netflix for example). HOWEVER, i have to say that any of the official helps to download/update firefox has been of no use for the moment. That is, the "update firefox to latest release"( https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/update-firefox-latest-release) page assumes that the update will take place by just going to << Help->About firefox>>, but it doesn't; and the alternative method, using "Choose which Firefox Browser to download in your language" page ( https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release) downloads me a compressed file ( in concrete firefox-88.0.tar.bz2). What is the problem with this? i haven't found a single word saying what to do after this download... i'm a newbie i only see a whole bunch of archives and files within but i don't have the Icon to press( yes, there is the firefox executable program that if you press appears the browser, but how can i place, and use, this outside the file( when i move it outside it stops working)) and so be able to use access the browser without having to go all into the downloaded file?

I know this is extremely long and i apologize for it. Here in the following i'll simply summarize the questions mentioned in hope that someone has any answer: 1) Why Firefox quantum, installed from the official app store in Linux ( it is/was the only Firefox appearing there as if it was the older version), didn't update the last version i previously had and made instead a duplicated, conflicting sometimes with the older ( Jupyter lab problem mentioned ), version. 2) Why has this Quantum browser suddenly crashed in my computer and why i can't even un-install it. 3) What is to be done with the update-downloading compressed file ( coming from https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release ) as to end up with the nice-looking, usually found, firefox browser icon in the screen, instead of having to go inside the file to use it.

Many thanks to anyone being able to help this troubled-guy in his proces of not going back to google chrome and windows.

I've been using Firefox when it was sort of called Netscape Navigator and its Mozilla's companion mail client - Thunderbird.

So it was a bit annoying (but easily corrected, of course) that Mozilla would undercut it's own products by changing the Thunderbird as the default mail client in favor of something that resembles Microsoft - after a couple of decades of use.

Just noting

I updated my Firefox to version 88 as soon as it came out. Continued working and browsing as usual.

3 days in, browser won't connect > close and restart > error Firefox still running in background > wait for processes to close > re-open Firefox > "You've launched an older version of Firefox - please create a new profile / Exit"

Follow the instructions, setup my profile from scratch again, login to all my accounts and proceed to get back to work. Few hours later - Firefox notifies me a newer version is released and i need to update my browser.

Not too long after, Firefox is downgraded to 87 by itself and I repeat the same process over and over again.

I tried:

  • Full uninstall / clean re-install
  • Deleting all profiles and all Mozilla folders and reinstalling
  • Some fix that's supposed to allow me to use my ver.88 profile on ver.87

Something is making Firefox downgrade to 87 by itself - This happens while I am browsing/using Firefox and causes all connections to drop and the browser to Crash soon after.

Any thoughts?

This appears to be reported at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1706429 but has severity and priority of P3, perhaps based on 39 reports when the ticket was raised.

Once again, the Top Sites that I have chosen on the the FF Home Page have shifted, or been removed. When I add them back on (and PIN) the site shortcut is there, but now I can't get the ICON that represents the Short Cut to appear and I have no idea how to find the URL for the ShortCuts, ie., the Twitter Bird that used to appear automatically, as an example.

I tried to take a Screen Shot, but the Screen Shot does not work on the FF Home Page.

Would it be too difficult to put a "Lock" button, similar to the Windows Lock for the Task Bar. PIN does NOT work.

I have not added any extensions or made any other changes that would affect this. Please advise how to correct this, and I don't want to have to follow directions that take me all over the place like go to file such and such and check such and such. That never works and usually ends up screwing up other issues. It worked once, I don't see why it doesn't work now.

Thank you for you time and I look forward to a SIMPLE solution.
