Every so often, Firefox fails to display a video. In this example, Firefox briefly displays what appears to be the first frame, then displays the message "The Media Could Not Be Played". I've tried with Troubleshoot Mode, and clearing history (cache, cookies, site settings, offline website data). How can I find out what's blocking? The example is a Twitter post on Wed 08/17/2022. I hope it is still there. https://twitter.com/i/status/1551522653705576449

Since the most current Firefox update in June 2022, when in Yahoo Mail and downloading an attachment, as the download complete, the Yahoo Mail tab is automatically closing, requiring I to go to 'History', then 'Recently Closed' tabs to re-open it. This happens Every.Single.Time I download photos and scanned docs from email. Again, this has never happened before - only with the recent Firefox update. I have 2021 a MacBook Pro.

when taking part in a VA video conference, I could get pictures but no sound. (other browsers - edge & chrome- gave me only sound and pictures). I get sound from videos, You Tube, Netflix, etc., but nothing when on the VA video conferencing site. I am using Windows 10 on an HP desktop computer. I even turned off my virus protection to make sure it was not interfering (suggested by VA video conferencing help contact) but that did not help either. Since VA is going to a lot of video conferencing this is creating a real problem. (Checking the settings for the webcam (Logi pro scan) all showed that it was functioning properly. Sound comes in on all other sites using Fire Fox.

Wasted a whole bunch of time when Firefox decided to install an update (I had previously downloaded) automatically. I did not touch my machine. A dialog came up and before I could read it and choose to cancel, the installation began. Took at least 16 minutes. I had checked "check for updates but let me choose to install", but it didn't give me a chance to decline. According to the web, the suggestion is choose "Never check for updates", but that choice is not there. I don't want ANY kind of auto update or auto install. Please don't suggest I program anything, thanks.

When I attempt to download a large file, for example this one, Firefox often:

  1. consumes my entire available Internet bandwidth, leaving other applications and devices unable to connect to the Internet, or even to other devices on my LAN.
  2. hangs, i.e. the download doesn't show any progress in the Firefox UI

When I attempt to cancel the download, Firefox does not react. Even if I close Firefox, the download continues to absorb the entire available network capacity. The PC (runniong Windows 10 21H2) can not be shut down normally; I can only stop the process by pressing and holding the PC's power button to effect a hard shutdown. When I restart the PC and restart Firefox, Firefox automatically attempts to resume the failed download, with the same results described above. How can I prevent Firefox from hogging all available network capacity for downloads? How can I terminate hung downloads in a more elegant manner? How can I prevent Firefox from attempting to resume failed downloads the next time I start it? I am currently using Firefox 103.0.2. AFAIK, this is also the latest version at this time.

Firefox locking up -- one, two, or up to 8 tabs open doesn't matter!

I've only been having it issue since upgrading to Ubuntu 22.04. Firefox (103.0.2) will lock up (not the pc, it will keep working in other apps). It doesn't seem to matter about the number of tabs open, or what sites I'm accessing. It 'seems' random, and closing Firefox and reopening it seems to work for a short while before locking up again. I'm not a tech guru so I don't know exactly what to include here, like logs, or other info. The other issue associated with this issue is, when it locks, and I restart, Firefox does not start the first time I click on it. I have to click on it again and when I do, it will start, but usually (not every time) I get an error message along with the open home page of Firefox. I have to press the (not sure what to call it) windows key and switch to the error to close it. In the past, I've always had a great experience with Firefox, but this is starting to really be annoying! Especially when I have four of five tabs open and have to do a restart. Firefox doesn't seem to realize it's had a problem so the option to re-open tabs with a restart doesn't happen. So I have to use history, which can be troublesome and confusing, to get back to the pages I was reading. I only open multiple tabs most often when I'm researching an issue and want to 'order' the tabs so I read the ones that look like they apply the most to my research topic. So it really is an annoying issue. So much so, that I have been looking to switch browsers. But I really do not like the large commercial entities not to name names, but I may have to suck it up and install the Big G's browser, the Big C! )^: (note: if you respond requesting additional information, please be kind and offer how to obtain the info! Thanks!)

I am almost about to stop using Firefox. Why is it so hard to gain access to YouTube? Never have a problem with Microsoft Edge. If a fix cannot be made without jumping through a lot of hoops and steps, I will have to stop using Firefox. Fix this mess. This problem has been around now for some time. Get it fix or accept other users switching to other browsers that seem to have no problem at all getting to and using YouTube. Very Frustrating.

Every time Firefox updates I have to Re-authenticate every one of my secure websites and the website asked if I want to register this computer. It wouldn't be bad if it wasn't 3 or 4 times per week.

I am currently using Firefox 91.12.0esr (64bit) [tried to copy and paste the version, but "About Mozilla Firefox" prohibits copy, so I had to split the screen to make sure I typed it in correctly]

Many websites that have been successfully used for decades with Firefox in Linux are no longer supporting Firefox. Their updates seem to vary in effect. Most I use will not allow Firefox to enter the password. Some websites detect your browser and display the message that Firefox is not supported and some functions will not work. Other posts describe the functions that do not work for them. This is seemingly not unique as I was playing Wizard101 for four years with Wine under Linux and now I am unable to log into their game. I can log into their website, so my account is still active, but I do not have Windows or Mac operating systems to use even if I could figure out how to use a virtual machine.

The only solution I have is to use the Web 3.38.2 browser / WebKitGTK 2.36.4, but most other browsers should function properly.

Although I have been using Firefox as my favorite browser for more than two decades, it seems that Firefox is no longer supported. Even the https://www.247freepoker.com/ game freezes after a few rounds.

There was a post that claimed a fix, but did not explain how to turn it on. I already checked my firewall settings and internet connectivity settings even though it did not seem to be the cause of the problem.

Hi,

I saved a new login on Firefox Android, but this did not sync to the desktop version. I tried syncing manually on both devices (which kind of defeats the point) and still no avail. The option to sync logins is activated on both devices, so I don't know what the problem is. I have tested this twice (two passwords saved on Android) and on both occasions they didn't sync to the desktop.

I also tested the process the other way around by saving a new login on the desktop and that synced to Android just fine!

Please help.
