when media starts playing on my computer without my consent, this should be considered a cybercime.

The only way for a video to start playing should be `right click -> play`

cut the nonsense with the *media.autoplay.enabled* switch. it doesnt work and it never will. as soon as the website uses any kind of scripting, this switch is ineffective.


which extension do i need to install to stop this autoplay nightmare forever?

It's clearly not from firefox, but I can't get it to stop happening. Not constantly, but frequently enough to be a headache. Is this something with my firefox or with my PC?

I have hardware acceleration disabled and my gpu clock still boosts up to max when surfing the web and watching youtube videos. I have gone through the options menu as well as the about:config to ensure it is off. This is causing my GPU to idle at around 50-55c when just watching a youtube video. I have already checked for viruses and malware with nothing to report and it only does this when I am using firefox.

Hi, I use firefox as main browser for developing and I got problem with its cache.

changes in code are not visible automatically, firefox keeps files in chache. So it happens, that I make some change and it takes long time, when the effect show. I am now compensating it by Test pilot Containers modules, but it is not much comfortable, to have one page loaded 5 times and after any small change trying to refresh all tabs, if some of them will reload propertly.

Also, I know the CTRL+F5 and CTRL+SHIFT+R shortcuts, but it does nothing. It will not do the clean reload, it again takes cached files.

So, any other shortcut/way, how to force a tab to get purely loaded from server?

Thanks :)

Firefox crashes, pages freeze and hang up,

I am using the latest version 53.0 of Firefox. I even UNINSTALLED FIREFOX and Re-Installed a brand new Firefox 53.0 , and have the same page freeze / hangup problem !!!

Never had a problem with Firefox for years now -- but as of the last 3 weeks, it keeps hanging up on random occasions , freezes a web page or site. I have to use Task manager (and there I see listed "FIREFOX NOT RESPONDING" ) to click on "END TASK" so as to be able to get out of the frozen page. I thus will loose certain things when Firefox returns. ie; usually the texts in composing a message board message, or composing an email

I have used FIREFOX SAFE MODE and it still freezes up.

When I run a Firefox TEST Mode thruout, I comes up with "Incompatibility Issue" but shows at right side of page a green check mark with word '"FIXED" - But it is NEVER fixed !!!

ALSO, I keep checking in SECURITY SECTION the box for REMEMBER LOGINS FOR SITES -- but every time I leave Firefox, or it closes, or it freezes up --- I have to go back and check that box or my logins do not shop up !

I have almost no extensions (other than Trend Mirco Anti Virus which never gave me problems with Firefox) and no plugins.

So I have tried many things that the support " stock" Q&A material suggests --- but still no fix.

I have seen on line that many people are having this problem. And can't seem to fix it either !

Here BELOW is a copy-paste of the "see the data" tech information for my system - if it may be of use;

HOPEFULLY some one can figure what is going on. Note; My MSN Tech Support does not troubleshoot Firefox, only Windows and Internet Explorer & MSN issues.

When downloading from Google Drive (or Google Team Drive) a large folder with Firefox, I only end up with the last zip part file. All the other zip files are missing.

Detailed example (Firefox 53.0.2): After downloading a folder named "folder", I only get a file named "folder-20170517T210208Z-002.zip" in my download folder; however, the first zip file "folder-20170517T210208Z-001.zip" is missing hence I can't download my folder.

All zip files except the last one are not downloaded.When doing the same on Chrome I get both the 001 and 002 files (hence I get all the data), so all good with Chrome.

How do download all the individual zip files with Firefox from Google Drive?

When in Outlook/Live.com email the padlock is always green UNTIL or UNLESS I open CERTAIN emails & then it turns to yellow warning sign. SEEMS like it DOESN'T change (to yellow) when I open emails that ONLY contain writing ? Once it IS yellow it STAYS yellow - UNTIL I "Reload the tab"- so it goes back to just showing all folders, etc... with NO OPEN EMAIL. WHAT would I or should I change to make ALL email "secure". It also SEEMS like MAYBE any email with ANY picture changes it to the yellow warning. Or is this something that anyone shouldn't be very concerned about? It appears that LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE THIS "PROBLEM". And not only with the Firefox browser. This "green to yellow" situation has been with me, using Firefox as my default browser, for about as long as I can remember! A few or several years? NOBODY seems to have a SOLUTION! NOBODY! And I REALLY LIKE my email program so I DON'T want to use a different one. I tried Thunderbird but didn't care for it... but I don't remember if this problem showed up in Thunderbird or not. I wasn't looking for that/this, at the time. Thank you for ANY help that you might be able to give me.
