I've been through these pages, and have turned off the hardware acceleration, disabled the content blocker, disabled all plug-ins and extensions, opened Firefox in safe mode, and am not running any themes, and STILL my drop down menus on webpages will not drop down. It's REALLY annoying. I'm running 83.0, on a new windows 10

I have previously not had this issue, have had no problem viewing videos on this particular website. Recently I've had a raft of of issues (since the latest Firefox upgrade??). In this instance, the website is https://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/ I am signed in as a member. Whenever I try to play a movie or TV show, I get this message:

Video Playback Error Sorry, we’ve encountered an error playing this video. If you have an ad blocker turned on, try turning it off or whitelisting our website before trying again. This may prevent you from loading videos.

I'm PC illiterate so I have no idea how to turn off an ad blocker (as well as Firefox being my browser, I have Quick Heal Anti-Tracker installed). Can someone please provide some help with REALLY BASIC instructions (ie. as if you're talking to an alien who has never used a computer before!). TIA

I also am unable to sign in to my YouTube account so I can watch videos I've subscribed to (I can view videos otherwise on YT). When I attempt to sign in, I get this image (below).

I have emptied cache, deleted browsing history etc, makes no difference. I can access and view SBS and YT on another browser, just not on Firefox.

My website is www.santiagoroutes.nl, the subdomain is mobiel.santiagoroutes.nl The certificate is valid for both (see certificate as shown by Firefox in attached picture). The website is marked safe by Firefox, and also by Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge). The subdomain is marked safe by Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge, but Firefox marks it unsafe, and if you click Show commection details and More info you get "Verified: Not specified". Then, if you click View Certificate you see the same certificate you see when you started from the main domain.

What goes wrong?

I have noticed that when I type "!g" in front of my search string in the address bar, the search is done with google despite using a different search engine. In addition, almost every letter on the keyboard will search a particular domain. For example, "!r" searches through reddit.

The weird thing is that I cannot find any documentation of this anywhere, and I cannot find any settings on this anywhere. The only similar thing is being able to use "@" with a custom keyword that has been previously set in the "search engines" menu in the settings. But this menu is limited and it is difficult to add search engines to it, as it requires you to visit that website, find the green plus sign in the tiny looking glass icon on the search bar next to the address bar, and click it and add the search engine. Then you can customize the keyword and then you can use, for example "@w" for example, to search wikipedia. But not every website gives you the option to add their search engine. For example,visiting Reddit results in no green plus sign over the looking glass icon in the search bar next to the address bar, despite the fact that "!r" works just fine.

So this is all very confusing, I hope someone can tell me what is going on. Thanks.

Hi All,

My web pages have 4 basic sections, Header, Menu, Content and Footer. In the print media query position static is used. I understand that should make them print in order. All browser had this messed up for many years but I'm sure Firefox had this fixed for awhile. In version 82.0.3 this is messed up again, footer prints at the top of 1st page.

Is this a printing bug? Or, do I misunderstand position static?

Why can't it print as shown on screen, What you see is what you get?


Thank you for any help,

Charles

What did Mozilla do recently to screw up Firefox?

On some websites (e.g., https://www.usbank.com/index.html and https://www.penfed.org/) which I commonly visit, I suddenly start getting error messages when I try to log in ("Your username and/or password are incorrect. Please try again." on the U.S. Bank website and just "FAIL" on the PenFed Credit Union website). I can log into both without any problems using the Chrome browser (which I don't like using). I have called both U.S. Bank's and PenFed's website support departments (having spent over an hour talking to each one) and both claim that there's nothing wrong with their servers, websites, or web pages, but instead lay the blame on FireFox; I'm starting to believe this, since I can log into my accounts using Chrome without any problems. This problem just started (for me) two days ago. And yes, I cleared all of my history, and I also shut down and re-started Firefox.

So, with this background, What did Mozilla do recently to screw up Firefox?

Around midday, today (08 Dec 2020), a tab in Firefox crashed. Afterwards, any open Firefox window or tab would not respond.

I closed all sessions of Firefox, and confirmed all were closed in Task Manager. Then, any attempt to launch Firefox produced a spinning circle for a few moments, and then nothing. I did extensive searching and did all the suggestions I found. Installing/reinstalling did not change anything. I moved my profile to another location, and tried to launch Firefox (without success), and a new profile was not created. The Profile Manager would not launch. Firefox would not launch in Safe-Mode. I uninstalled Firefox and manually removed all folders and ran Ccleaner to clean up the registry. I then reinstalled without success.

I tried to roll back the system to a previous restore point of 03 Dec 2020, but that was unsuccessful; there was a suggestion from Microsoft that my antivirus was preventing the restore from being successful. I disabled BitDefender and tried to restore again, with the same failed result. I ran "sfc /scannow", which found some problems and fixed them. After Rebooting, I discovered that Firefox launched and worked as expected, but then realized that BitDefender was disabled. After enabling BitDefender, Firefox doesn't launch.

I added "c:\Program Files\mozilla firefox\firefox.exe" as an Exclusion in BitDefender, without success.

When trying to roll back the system, the feature to scan for affected programs showed I was using Version 69 of Firefox on 03 Dec 2020.

Did I receive a Firefox update today that caused Firefox to not play well with BitDefender? or is there something else suspected to cause BitDefender to prevent Firefox from launching?

I am running 64-bit Windows 10.

I've tried going thru the options to change this but nothing seems to help. I restarted my computer (Windows 10) and no difference. The version is 78.3.1esr (64-Bit) and says it is up to date. How can I get back to English and no home page (just an empty tab is my preferred startup)? Thanks for any assistance. (I tried searching for a problem like this in the help and came up empty.)

A computer support tech did some "housecleaning" on my computer yesterday via Remote Access. After he finished, I had to re-do Firefox (among other things) from scratch: settings, extensions, customizations, etc. Another difference I noted is that when I mute or change the volume on my speaker, a control panel appears in the upper left-hand corner of the screen next right next to the mute-to-100 volume slider. (See attached screenshot.) I know there's a way to turn that panel off without affecting the volume slider because I was told (here at Support) how to do it when I first began with Firefox. However, it was a long time ago; I don't remember what I did. I think it had something to do with config: then changing a setting from on/1 to off/2 or something like that. Will someone please help again? Thanks in advance. :)
