I'm on Firefox 103.0.2 64 bit on Windows 10. For the last few months when I play a video of any format that I received as an attachment in Yahoo mail everything works as it should until I play the video. After the video is played from the downloaded file Yahoo mail closes. It always happens this way. I first thought it was Yahoo mail but I have another tab with Edge and Yahoo mail on that browser. It doesn't happen when I use Edge to download the video and play it. I use the same player, VLC, to play the video on both browsers. It has worked fine for years.

I am a big fan of Firefox and have used it as long as it has been out. I have convinced all my friends and relatives to use it as well.

This issue happens on a desktop computer using Windows 10 On a few sites where I tried to post a comment I get this Invalid Security Token error and everything I posted is gone. I started to save what I wrote so I could paste the comment again and retry but I still get this error. Even after retrying to re-post the comment several times. This has been happening for over a year now and I've tried to find an answer to fix this problem but I can't determine if this is a Firefox, a Windows 10, or some other program or security issue that is causing this. I've also have run into problems with some websites that have required me to re-register or update information using Firefox and had to use the Google Chrome web browser to do that. The last time that happened was with the UPS site a few weeks ago that I needed to track a package. Is this another issue with an Invalid Security Token? Is this an issue in Firefox or Windows 10? Is there some way to find what is causing this problem? Is there a fix or something I need to change, download or turn off? I've emptied my cash and cookies but these problems persist. Both Firefox and windows are current and have the latest updates. I'm no expert on computers and programs, but I can get through fixes if they are explained well. Some online information seems to assume that you know all the ways to get into a program or folder and just tell you to go to "X" folder without mapping directions. Then go to some named program to fix the problem. The biggest problems I've had with that: I have no idea of how to get to that folder and most of the time the name of the folder or program has changed or is in some sub folder that they do not mention. I have been able to fix problems with computers and some programs, but I'm not an expert like you guys are and I don't understand all of the upper high tech language. I guess you could say we are all experts in some things and not so good in others. But if y'all could get back to me on this annoying issue I would appreciate it very much. Thank you Robert

After mucking around the internet, trying to figure out how to use .json policy files, Group Policy, whatever 'Enterprise' is, for well over an hour. I've had zero luck on finding detailed instructions about how to do anything I just mentioned, or that it's even possible. (Asides from [question] I found on this site that was solved in '21)

It sounds possible, but I can't find any directions (straightforward or vague) about how to do it.

What can I do, if anything?

after uploading photos to a marketplace listing, when grabbing the photo you wish to move to front/top, after you drop the photo in the spot firefox loads the photo in a view tab, but you can't go back. if you're like wtf why did it do that, and click back, then it'll take you out of the listing and you have to START ALL OVER AGAIN.

this is complete madness if you've been working on a listing for a while and it then boom it's gone and there's no getting it back unless you remember to save a draft.

in opera, even if accidents happen you can go back and forth and it saves your text entries but firefox for some reason doesn't so i'm tasked with having to remember things constantly, which being autistic drives me completely insane having to bother with. in opera, it's automatically just there so i don't have to worry about remembering anything i wrote.

how to i fix this problem? obviously it's not just a me problem, as i'm willing to bet this has affected others listing in marketplace as well.

as shown in the photos, i try to drag the photo to the slot then boom it just views it instead. the only way to get around losing my work is to go to history, and click on the most recent fb entry. but then still can't move the photo. i'm just going to move it mobile for now, but geez louise what a bother!

My website has an SSL certificate installed and this is detectable in Firefox. However, looking at the page info, it states that the site is not encrypted.

On other browsers like IE and Chrome, the site is reported to be using encryption. I also looked at the actual network packets which seem to be encrypted, even when using FireFox. I was wondering if this is a FireFox bug or am I missing something here?

After I reported this problem earlier (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1374122), my installation of Firefox on Windows 10 has been auto-updated to Ver. 103.0.2, but the missing "Send Page to Device" and "Send Tab to Device" commands have not been restored yet.

I tested to see whether pages/tabs can be sent back and forth between my Android tablet and PC, as well as whether the Android device is visible on the PC at all, and compared the results between before and after auto-update (88.0.1 and 103.0.2, respectively) . Here is the sum-up:



On PC (88.0.1):

(1) Android device is visible in the "Connected Services" page. (2) It is also listed as destination in the "Send Page to Device" and "Send Tab to Device" commands. (3) Pages/tabs are successfully sent to Android using these commands.


On PC (103.0.2):

(1) Android device is visible in the "Connected Services" page. (2) But the "Send Page to Device" and "Send Tab to Device" commands are not available (see the screen shots below). (3) Therefore, pages/tabs cannot be sent to Android.


On Android, when trying to send a page to PC (88.0.1):

(1) PC is listed as destination in the "Send to other devices" command. (2) Pages are successfully sent to PC using the command.


On Android, when trying to send a page to PC (103.0.2):

(1) PC is listed as destination in the "Send to other devices" command. (2) The command apparently finishes successfully, but the page does not show up on PC.



Though both desktop versions can perfectly sync bookmarks, history, cookies, etc., with Android, it seems something is wrong with Ver. 10x (and 9x as I have reported earlier) in communicating with Android.




[Screen shots]

(Green = 88.0.1, Blue = 103.0.2, Red = Android)
