After following all the suggestions found by searching video autoplay, Firefox currently still autoplays videos with the sound muted. This is in websites other than those like YouTube, such as news websites and the like. What I REALLY want is to COMPLETELY PREVENT automatic playback of any of these videos, and if necessary, whitelist domains like YouTube to allow autoplay. Is this even feasible?

Outlook help tells me that spelling checkers are available in Firefox but how do I turn them on? And if I am using Firefox as my browser but am in hotmail, will it work in hotmail? I am at a loss and your hlep would be appreciated. Thanks, Anthony

I made the big mistake of refreshing Firefox thinking it would solve another issues. Now all of my bookmarks are gone. I've tried the show all bookmarks, import and restore thing but I don't get a date to click on, it just takes me to my desktop folder. What am I doing wrong? I also did a system restore on my computer hoping that would help, but it didn't. I'm clearly not very good at this.

Cannot send secure message to bank while logged in to my bank account.

When maximized, a block box in the top-left corner of the browser covers the favicon of the first tab. When not maximized, the tabs shift to the right such that the box is no longer covering any part of the first tab.

When I start with add-ons disabled, the black box disappears. However, setting my theme to default, removing all my add-ons, refreshing and then re-installing Firefox didn't fix the problem.

I also noticed that if I enable the menu bar, the black box leaves the tabs alone and instead covers the 'File' menu.

Any idea how to get rid of it?

I am so sick of Google, I decided to give Firefox a try again. For the first time, it offered me Monitor, which demonstrated I have suffered a data breach, apparently at multiple sites, and they have all gotten hold of the same one of my passwords. Even though I suspect Y'all are aware that the breach was not my doing, Firefox is set up to treat me like an idiot after the fact, going into detail about safe passwords and using password manager apps--the whole thing about not using one password for multiple sites and all that, which I've been aware of and responded to cautiously and reliably for about the last fifteen years, of about twenty that I've been online.

The problem is that I am very internet savvy, so that info, as helpful as it is meant to be, is useless to me and a bit offensive. I have been using LastPass for about the last five years. I have nearly 300 unique passwords. It is useless to me to be told that some strangers have access to one of my nearly 300 passwords. What am I supposed to do with that information, change all my passwords? Why did they not provide me the password that was part of the breach, so I can hunt it down and change it? Right now, all it's done is set me up to worry, when in fact, the forces that absconded with my data, presumably as part of huge data breaches involving major companies, probably have no interest in me whatsoever! I think presenting things in this manner, as well meant as it may have been, is a bit irresponsible and condescending. Not everyone out here is an idiot, even if we may not be computer techs. Is there any way I can learn which of my many passwords was part of this breach? What else am I supposed to do with this info, when I already have unique passwords for all of my many accounts and I use a password manager?

I mean no offense in presenting my frustration and understand you all are volunteers and not responsible for the problems as I have outlined them. I hope someone can help me sort this out.

The current update in Firefox has NOTHING to do with me. Nothing that is added or fixed has anything to do with my system or how I use the browser. (This happens FREQUENTLY) I am getting NAGGED by Firefox to install it. (Settings are be notified about updates, I choose when to install). .

I always check and read the detailed release notes. I REALLY resent being forced to install updates that do not relate to my system or what I do in any way!

Please Firefox, PROVIDE OPTIONS to SKIP updates! This feature/option is LONG LONG OVERDUE! Make it so!

After the freeze, I could not end the multiple processes in Task Manager so rebooted and uninstalled it. After attempting to reinstall Firefox will not open, yet two instances of Firefox are shown in Task Manager which cannot be stopped (end task) without a reboot. I have deleted all Mozilla folders, profile, and all registry entries. I have tried reinstalling it in Safe Mode with no luck. I have run several malware and virus scans from various sites which show no problems. I can install other software, just not Firefox. I am posting from a different computer so any configuration information shown from this version of Firefox is not valid in my case. I have tried installing this at least 8 times with the same results. I would appreciate any suggestions other than switch to a different browser, as I have faithfully used Firefox since about version 3 and love(d) it. Thanks in advance for any help: I'm stumped!

One day i opened firefox and it a window popped up that said "create new account", "delete account" and something else. so i made a new account/profile. Now i can't open my old account even though it worked just minutes before the whole incident. if i try to make a different shortcut for that profile it doesn't show up beside my new account(i added "-P" to the path in properties, so it would show me that window again.) Now i'm not sure what to do since i have seen nobody else with this problem. In the picture you can see there are two profiles. The one which says "default" on the end is the old one. It still has all the info in the folders. In the other window you can see what happens if i want to open the old account. Thank you for your help.
