Since switching to Firefox I'm experiencing some trouble regarding the playback of videos on different websites which I don't experience using other browsers. At seemingly random moments there are 'stripes' visible which are quite annoying watching a video (see image). I tried restarting Firefox with Add-ons disabled and unchecked 'Use hardware acceleration when available' in the preference section but this doesn't resolve anything. Any suggestions on how to solve this? Thanks in advance!

HELP!!

Comcast keeps dropping my home network IP address ONLY when I am using the Firefox browser.

When I open the browser to access the internet (any site) within a few minutes or less the home network IP address is dropped by Comcast and I lose the internet. This does NOT happen when I am using Chrome.

My laptop wi-fi can still see - and connect to - other wi-fi networks in the vicinity and if I turn off the wi-fi for a few seconds and then turn it back on again connection is restored.

I have raised this issue with Comcast four (4) times and they have not addressed the issue, so my choice now is: stop using Firefox, keep turning the wi-fi off and on again or..........?

Can someone please tell me what is going on here and ideally how to to fix this issue - thank you.

Since a recent update (within the last couple weeks) I am no longer able to select file or folder locations. The file manager window doesn't show up, but the browser acts like it's open.

Screen recording of the issue can be found at the following link. It shows both upload and download attempts from a server on my local network. https://youtu.be/pDTZ3tisDqo

I have tried disabling the adblocker, but get the same result. this happens on all sites

I recieved the 81.0.2 update this morning, and the problem remains

I can sign in to my Ebay account from Google Chrome no problem......gets right in.

I can also sign in with Microsoft Edge.............no problem.

But EVERYTIME I sign in to Ebay with Firefox, I have to use Captcha....not once, but 2 times!!

Why ONLY Firefox??

How can I turn off Captcha?

It is unnecessary, it is annoying, it is a pain in the A__.

PS Firefox is my Browser of choice. I'd rather not have to switch.

It is easier for my to use the toolbar across the top. How to I change this?

Hello all and I hope everyone is safe in this pandemic world! In my Applications and in my profile directory, I have Mibbit as the default irc and it comes up everytime I reinstall firefox. I think that this is strange, mibbit is for old crooners isn't it? I would think that FF has advanced! I would like to not see it when I reinstall firefox, is this possible

I also have an installed plugin Shock wave Flash...did I install this or does it come from FF?

thank you,

Just installed 81.0.2 update, did not install cleanly, had to reset. All privacy & security settings were wiped. Redid everything, am now unable to block videos on news sites, which I had done previously. Can block autoplay with following config settings -

media.autoplay.allow-extension-background-pages - false media.autoplay.block-event.enabled - true media.autoplay.block-webaudio - true media.autoplay.blocking_policy - 1 media.autoplay.default - 5

Can no longer block videos from loading. How to do this in 81.0.2?

Immediately after starting Firefox, if I try to open one of a couple of different links from the Firefox homepage, it will fail to load on the first try. At the moment, this only occurs with gmail (http://mail.google.com/mail/?hl=en&tab=wm#inbox or https://mail.google.com/mail/u/1/#inbox) and reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/all or https://www.reddit.com), and occurs when trying from either the Homepage's Top Sites or from my Bookmarks toolbar.

Example: Open firefox -> Click on Gmail in Bookmark toolbar -> VERY briefly (<.5s) see the tab loading -> Nothing -> Try again -> Successfully loads

I rebooted my computer after it crashed, due to what appeared to be a hard drive error (at first when I restarted the computer I got the message, "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed)". Once I managed to get the PC started again I opened Firefox and found out that all of my saved passwords were gone as well as nearly all of my browsing history, which goes back over a year. Strangely enough, not everything is deleted - there are still several webpages that I visited in the past that still show up in the browser history, especially from the last few months. Not only that, but when I scroll through list of web results, webpages that I previously visited are still highlighted in purple, even though many of them do not show up in the much reduced browser history. Does this mean that the remainder of the browsing history is still somewhere? The Firefox profile is the same one as before the crash.

Thank you!

For the last few days, my Firefox browser has gone really slow. For example it takes about a minute to retweet something. I have refreshed it and ensured it is the latest version as well as updating my laptop/restarting Firefox. The rest of my laptop and other browsers works fine so it does just seem to be Firefox. Any ideas? Thanks

Hi COmmunity,

i am using following font for my website, which is shown in chrome and edge but not in fireforx.

<link href="css/fonts/sf-sports-night.regular.tff">

I found some config solutions:

Firefox comes with a very strict "file uri origin" (file:///) policy by default: to have it to behave just as other browsers, go to about:config, filter by fileuri and toggle the following preference:

security.fileuri.strict_origin_policy

Where can i set the value to false for that attribute?

I use Firefox as my primary browser on my Mac Book. I have never changed my default browser from Google and if I go into preferences it says my default browser is still Google. Despite this, about 2 weeks ago all my searches started being in Yahoo instead of Google and it is getting really annoying now. I can't change it to any other browsers or back to Google, it's just stuck on Yahoo.
