Hi,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

Hello, I am having an issue with Firefox not wanting to open a server I have hosted on my WSL2 Ubuntu instance through localhost.

Edge and Chrome open it just fine.

If I try to open it through the WSL2 IP address (taken from eth0 on ifconfig output in ubuntu) and not through localhost, it works also fine, so there is something not working with localhost only in Firefox.

I tried everything I could find on Google for a week now, nothing seems to work, I refreshed/reinstalled Firefox (even though I deleted the profile folders also, it still knew somehow I am reinstalling cause it said so), I tried removing all the Windows Firewall rules I found in regards with Firefox and re-added one to allow everything from Firefox, still nothing, I reset all the settings in Firefox about:config, still nothing...

I am on Windows 11, this issue started happening a few days after I migrated to Win11, without any changes done to my server in WSL.

I attached some screenshots to show the issue, basically when I try to open the localhost:port (hosted in WSL as I mentioned) it just loads and loads and loads, nothing happens, I even waited 10 min, any other browser works instantly.

In one screenshot below with the hosts files, you will see I added the ipv6 ::1 localhost but I tried without that even and it still does not work.

Any help anyone can give is really appreciated, thanks. Let me know if I should post any other details or screenshots.

I'm on the latest version of Firefox on Windows 10 and I have three problems:

1. I have removed old identity certificates so I only have two left. I've closed and restarted many days now. But when I access a site that requires a certificate, four appear in the drop-down list to select. There should only be the two that I have.

2. If I don't check the "Remember this decision" box and click "OK", the certificate will not be selected. If I check that box, then it is accepted, but next time I can't select a different certificate for the site, and I have to go to the security settings and delete the decision for the site. That is wrong (see image).

3. I remember at least one site that ignores the certificate selection, and when returning to the app after identity confirmation, it takes me back to start the identification verification process again. These sites work fine in the Edge browser, but not in Firefox.

I have Yahoo email, and have been using Firefox successfully for many years. Now, since the last update, I can't access anything on Firefox. In fact, the only way I was able to access this page was through another browser. I've done all the simple stuff (restarting the computer, restarting the Wi_Fi) and the technician from the computer company has spent a couple of hours trying to get it to work. I've moved to Edge, but, I'd like to move back to Firefox since I am more used to their system.

I use a large external monitor with a Macbook Air and want the menubar (file-edit-view etc) to stop disappearing in full screen mode. Having the window jump about is annoying and unnecessary with a large screen.

I've tried resetting browser.fullscreen.autohide, but that only affect the tabs, bookmarks and address line. Is there another setting that retains the FF menu?

Thanks.

In Firefox 97.0/Windows 11, I am having an odd problem with Firefox. When I leave an open browser window and go to hovver over the Firefox tab on the taskbar to choose a different window I find a different set of windows to choose from - ie. the set of current windows has changed to a set of a previous session and the old set of open windows are displayed - the current ones have disappeared. I don't know how to stop this happening or why it is happening.

Hello! I am considering upgrading from Windows 10 to Windows 11 but have read I'd lose Firefox and have to reinstall it from the Microsoft Store. My question is: What will happen to all my saved bookmarks and passwords, etc., currently in Firefox? When I install it as above and sign in to my Firefox account, will everything be there as now? I use it as my default browser, mostly using Google Chrome for maps, and never Microsoft Edge, so don't want to lose everything and have to start over.

Thanks in advance for your time and attention! EP

macOS 12.2.1 and Yahoo mail in Firefox.

This has occurred since the update of Firefox to v95.0 and I have not done anything differently. There is now no auto-suggestion of email addresses when composing an email. Using the email search facility to find emails always results in an error. Any ideas as to how to fix this?

My Samsung S20 5G (Android v12) used to play back full screen videos perfectly fine via Firefox.

But, now that I have Firefox v97.1.0 (via Play Store), playing full screen videos results in the menu bar staying horizontally on the screen with no way of making it disappear.

The menu bar will switch from horizontal to vertical if I change the video back to non-full-screen mode and then back to full screen. (see screenshots attached)

The thing is, we have an S21 (Android v12) that uses Firefox v95.2.0 and it works great!

Is it possible to fix this issue or download an older version of Firefox for Android that works as it should?

Thank you!
