On the entertainment media site Buzzfeed, clicking on a post of an embedded Twitter video gives me a blank white image. No error message like "Unable to play the file". I did a clear history, cache & cookies and refreshed Firefox. I ran the apt update for Ubunto. It had been operating smoothly in the past. If I go to Twitter, it plays. It just goes blank when I click on the video embedded in the post.

Thank you for any assistance.

How to make Firefox display Chinese characters completely?

This issue is going on for a few months already. At some point my Firefox lost the ability to display some Chinese characters. This is a big issue for me, because I use Chinese almost daily. They're not rarely used characters either. One examples is (you'll be able to see it, I am not): "问" (Now I see only two quotation marks but I know that there is a character in between them.)

Here are the details of what's going on:

When I enter Chinese characters on most websites (not all of them!), only some of them will be displayed, while others are invisible. Thus when I enter a whole phrase, it's difficult to check whether I made any mistakes. I know the characters are there, because I can move my cursor through the characters and it'll stay at the same place, internally counting that invisible character, when I move over one of those invisibles. Also when I write Chinese text messages, the other person never seems to be missing any characters from my messages. Also when I copy paste them into an editor, they're clearly there and visible.

So what I've tried so far is only the following:

I went to: about:preferences#content and then set a font, which I know can display the characters (WenQuanYi Micro Hei). Also I enabled the checkbox with the label "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above".

So either almost aaaaall of the websites I am using suddenly removed their own font choices (highly unlikely) and FF can't use the font set by me properly, or there is another issue at work here.

I also tried with another profile, by starting FF using the command line: firefox -P A completely new profile, no addons installed or anything, but still some Chinese characters are missing.

Information about my machine: OS: Xubuntu 14.04 Firefox Version: 44.0.2 (shouldn't really matter as this is going on for a long time now) (Any other information required?)

Example for a website on which FF is displaying Chinese characters correctly: http://www.mdbg.net

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?

I've been using a custom font (DejaVu) with unchecked "allow sites to use their own fonts" since a long time. But now some sites came with this new idea of icon fonts that look completely broken (a weird box with crazy stuff inside) until I globally check "allow sites to use their own fonts". Is there any way to configure different fonts per site? Specifically I would like to keep my all time configuration except for these specific sites which should be loading their beloved fonts.

Hi here!! I review a lot of mozilla docs (out dated or without complete info), forums, googling ... about how to share firefox/thunderbird/ligthing data between platforms on dual/multiple boot system. Every user in same trouble are repeating (copy/paste) in the solution to share the SAME FULL PROFILE on all platforms. I review profile data and folders and I can see files and config data that are platform dependent; then I think that share FULL PROFILE between is not the best approach, for example Linux and Windows will produce several problems (and a lot of problems with the add-ons) In these same mozilla docs recommends to share only data and maintain custom profile for each platform, but not more info how to do it. Please can some kind advanced :) provide some info about the correct approach. Or a better tech info about how is possible the recommendation of sharing same profile between platforms without problems. Because with the current doc info, there is no way to get a clear answer (Almost I can't :~). Thx guys!

Prior to v57 I could click on a link like http://freezone.iinet.net.au/include/radio/playlists/2.m3u and tell Firefox to always open it in VLC, after which I would be able to listen to these sorts of streaming music stations in VLC with a simple click in Firefox. It did open a blank tab as well, but no big deal.

Now when I click such a link, a new blank tab still opens but it just sits there in a "loading" state with a status bar message "Connecting to iinet.net.au...". Eventually it times out.

This has occurred on 2 different machines running Linux Mint (with Firefox Sync active) but also on a Windows 7 machine which does not have FF Sync enabled.

The problem persists even in Safe Mode (i.e., with extensions disabled).

There are ways around this for me - like loading the URL directly into VLC, though that is clumsier; I'm at a bit of a loss as to why/how this change has occurred. But it seems like Firefox wants to play mp3 audio in its own (html5?) builtin player, but that it doesn't support m3u.

The reason I would prefer to listen to streams in VLC is so that if I close Firefox after starting a music stream, then VLC can still keep playing the music.

Those alterations (including the removal) have since been reversed.

Hi there,

This issue reports to a desktop computer with 8 CPUs and 24 Gb of RAM, which pretty much puts aside any resource constraints. Ever since Firefox was updated to version 49 the browsing experience has become increasingly difficult with a relevant lag on pretty much every task: . opening a new tab . loading/reloading a web page . scrolling down a web page . entering text (takes almost 1 second for a character to appear) . deleting text . using menus (e.g. takes about 1 second for the context menu highlight to move up/down to the next item) . great reduction in frame rate when playing videos (actually, I no longer play video on Firefox 49)

I have tried various things to stop the lagging: . restart Firefox . disable/uninstall extensions (now down to just 4) . disable/uninstall plugins (now down to just 3) . update plugins

But the lagging prevails.

I use pretty much the same web pages as I did with previous Firefox versions, but only with version 49 am I experience this lagging.

Thank you.

Firefox seems to continually re-add search engines to my Search Engine options. I delete all but two Search Engines, yet every week or two, or maybe it's when the browser processes an update, all the old, removed search engines re-appear. It's annoying to have to endlessly delete them over and over again. I could just let them stay, I guess, but I'm stuck on the principle of the thing.

For example, I delete Google, Yahoo, Ixquick, etc. And yet, two or three weeks later, they're all back again. I have toggled browser.search.update to 'false', combed through about:config for anything related, toggled the setting in Preferences, and nothing seems to work. Is this a bug or a feature?

I have two instances of Firefox - Firefox beta and the standard one. Beta is at 56.0b12 (64-bit). The standard Firefox is up to date at whatever the current release version is.
