I use firefox 83.0 on Ubuntu 20.04. Browser does not play videos on Twitter, Reddit or Netflix. Youtube plays some videos but some videos show error "your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available". I cannot find any viable solution. what should I do?

I installed chrome and it plays all the videos. So there must not be any problem in OS.

I am using Firefox Nightly. It receives updates every day, but most of the time I cannot restart Firefox as soon as update is available. I want to delay it till next natural restart (ex.: night), however, Firefox shows notification about the available update. It's a minor issue, but seeing notification every day and having it to close every time gets annoying very quickly. I want to disable update notification but keep automatic updates. How can I do this?

When I open a link in a New Tab, Firefox continually returns a blank page. (Previously, Firefox would happily open up to 10 or more Tabs for reading later, without batting an eyelid)

Firefox even declined to open my Home Page a short while ago.

The only extension I am using is Adblock Plus, and even disabling it, or restarting in Safe Mode, makes no difference.

I am using Firefox release 83.0 - and I've tried turning off Hardware Acceleration - again, no difference.

Any help/advice much appreciated Robin

I have a personal website which uses a "hit counter" provided by Bravenet. Here is the code:

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://pub8.bravenet.com/counter/code.php?id=408129&usernum=614453690&cpv=3"></script>

This counter worked for quite a while, and recently stopped working using Firefox on my desktop (Dell Inspiron 660s). It still works on Safari (on my iPhone) and on Chrome (on my desktop).

Could it be a problem with my computer or Firefox?

Tried to send feedback on the supid move of close other/to right tabs off main right click menu and got this:

Please check back soon

We've paused submissions to this form so that we can improve how we collect feedback.

So now they not only won't listen to their users, remove all the complaints about UI changes we DON'T want or have any need for, now they don't even accept feedback. Guess they were overwhelmed.

Sheesh.

Frustrated Firefox user from Netscape v1.something (.7?). Time to move to Opera and leave Firefox to the idiots that don't know how or can't use a mouse to click the right option on a menu that "they" say is the reason for the moving of the options to a sub menu. At least they could give us an OPTION to put it back where it belongs. Ditto for the "megabar" stupidity that BLOCKS the view of my bookmarks toolbar!!!!

Hi:

I installed a few days ago the latest version of Firefox on my iMac. I am noticing that when I open a new window in Firefox, a tab is opened and it shows Search Pulse. I looked it up and it appears that it is some kind of adware that is dangerous and is hard to remove. I looked up some articles and they all seem to be written by some vendor promoting a product for removal. I am very concerned asking for more problems than what I have as I am not a technical person.

Did anyone encounter this adware and if so what's a trustworthy product to remove it?

I have Norton and the free version of Malwarebytes on my computer. None of these programs caught the installation of this adware.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hello.

I'm trying to get Firefox to stop autoplaying videos. Under the autoplay settings in Options, I have selected "Block Audio and Video." Didn't work, videos play muted. After searching for a solution, I found a suggestion to try to set the "media.autoplay.allow-muted" to false in about:config. Nothing changed, they're still playing muted.

I'm specifically referring to videos on Facebook and Twitter.

Anyone have a suggestion?

Thanks.

I did not delete FF I simply imported into Chrome all my FF data and tried Chrome. I prefer FF and want to add back into FF all the new passwords and bookmarks & etc that I created/added while using Chrome. Hence my question. And if yes, then shouldn't I totally avoid synching with my FF account as wouldn't that defeat the purpose of creating a new profile to avoid duplication?
