Using Firefox 68.12.0ESR. I know 78 is available, I just haven't had the time to test it yet. I delete cookies when I exit Firefox. I want to keep some for sites that I trust, such as this site. I've added exceptions to Allow these trusted sites as documented on a thread somewhere else, but it doesn't work. All cookies are deleted.

Is it possible to keep cookies only for a select group of sites. eg. support.mozilla.com, tomshardware.com, mydigitallife.net, speedtest.net and so on.

Thank you.

Today firefox prompted me to upgrade to the latest version, i upgraded to 75.0, then a problem began with youtube. whenever i hover the mouse over the video window the progress bar comes up with white background instead of being transparent as usual, and that huge white bar hides half the video window. i attached a picture, in the top the video is normal when the progress bar is hidden, but when i hover the mouse to bring the progress bar this white monster bar comes up and hides half the screen. the exact same thing happens when the video is full screen too.

i tried removing all plug-ins and extensions, it still happened.

i cleared cache, history, cookies, it still happened.

i logged off completely, it still happened when i played a video without being logged in.

i started firefix in safe mode, still happened in safe mode.

chrome, opera, and edge work alright on youtube. only firefox following today's update. Any help? Thanks

Each time I watch a movie on my video streaming website I get an error message in a yellow notification bar ("the clearkey plugin has crashed" -- translation), and there is no issues with video playback. How can I automatically get rid of this bar (other than by clicking "close this message"), which sticks on the top of the window even in full screen mode?

Hey everybody

I'm having troubles installing an addon. Now I just noticed, that Firefox is communicating an older version than itself, than it actually is. As you can see in the screenshot (hopefull, since I'm using it in German), the website https://addons.mozilla.org thinks that I'm on v68, while in reality, I just updated it to 76.

I did play around a bit with addons and settings for data privacy - and I'm pretty confident, that the problem is within a wrongly set configuration - but I can't for the life of me find and reverse it.

I would really appreciate any pointers you can give me!

Cheers, Robert

FF 69.0.1 I clicked the "star shaped icon" which you click to "save this URL to bookmarks." It turned blue as usual. I then clicked on it to invoke the dropdown menu allowing me to enter the words I wanted to use. The menu did not drop down. I used a "two finger click" (OSX) and an option to "remove from address bar" appeared. I thought this would clear the bookmark, but instead, the icon itself went away.

How the HELL do I get it back? WHY didn't the dropdown appear as usual?

YouTube videos (both embeded and on website) seem to load (I can see thumbnails when I hover cursor over timeline) but will throw "An error occurred. Please try again later." when I click play.

Youtube debug info: "errorCode": "fmt.decode", "errorMessage": "An error occurred. Please try again later.", "wr": "GENERIC_WITHOUT_LINK"

This also happens in Private Browsing and Safe mode (addons disabled) in Firefox 75.0 and 76.0.1 (different user profiles) This issue does not occur in other browsers I have installed (Chromium, Iridium, Google C, and Pale Moon)

Everything was working fine a few hours ago, I have made no hardware, software or config changes.


EDIT: Just noticed the edit button, added a cropped screenshot of the issue.

Just planning ahead here...

I have Firefox 68.9.0esr (the latest esr version). I have Firefox set to “check for updates but let me decide whether to install them.” I have read that a new version of esr based on Firefox 78 will be released on June 30, 2020, but that there will be an approx 3-month overlap period during which one can alternatively choose to use additional 68.xx esr updates.

If I want to take advantage of this overlap period and keep using an up-to-date 68esr as long as possible, how would I do so? After June 30, will I be offered only 78esr versions, or will I be offered the “overlap” 68.xx? If the answer is that I will be offered 78esr as of June 30, how can I obtain the overlap 68 esr updates instead?

Thanks.

It's good to have those built-in shortcuts, but it's stupid you can't modify them. When I use this website I can't input the division sign by pressing / on the keypad because it's the shortcut for Quick Find. I guess this is because the place to input is not a normal text box like in WolframAlpha , but part of the whole webpage(?). Add the function to customise shortcuts is much easier than let Firefox recognise and deal with this situation, I think. In fact, most software supports customising shortcuts, so I'm surprised to find there's no way for Firefox to do that.

Hello,

My time is wrong in Firefox. When I see the time stamps of my productivity on any social or business site, they are about 4 hours ahead. In other browsers (Chrome & Edge), everything is fine. In Windows, my time is properly set. This includes my Time Zone in Control Panel as well.

I am facing the problem to open the sites. When I used the network, it show the following error:

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at www.google.com.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

Please let me know your suggestion and comments.

Tonight I noticed something really weird when I tried to reply to a comment on Youtube. Initially, I tried to reply from the bell button in the notifications and soon I realized that the Spacebar was not working. I thought it might be stuck, but it was not, since it was working fine in both the address bar and the search bar. Asynchronous keys function was disabled. Then, I went to the video and tried to reply from there. Guess what! The video was being resized using the shortcuts depending on what I was typing! For example "t" changes between normal and theater mode and "i" makes it picture-in-picture. What is going on? I am sure no key is locked, i even restarted my pc and the same thing kept happening. Then, I turned it off and on and the problem was persisting. Everything works fine on other applications, just YT seems broken for some reason. I tried to type on YouTube on two other browsers and everything worked fine. I don't think it has anything to do with the windows update, since it only happens on firefox, which I don't intend to change. Is there any setting to lock/toggle the Youtube shortcuts on and off? Sorry for the length of my description and thanks a lot in advance!
