I recently refreshed Firefox and now I am having trouble streaming some news channels from my TV provider. The message I get is "FIREFOX IS INSTALLING COMPONENTS NEEDED TO PLAY THE AUDIO OR VIDEO ON THIS PAGE. PLEASE TRY AGAIN LATER."

I went to my Settings under DRM and found some articles on how to watch DRM content. I dug a little deeper and went to Manage Your Plugins and noticed two Enabled Plugins - OpenH264 Video Codec and Widevine Content Decryption Module provide by Google.

Under the Widevine plugin, there is a message highighted in yellow that reads - Widevine Content Decryption Module will be installed shortly.

It's been like this for 2 days and I don't know what to do next.

I've been noticing a consistent issue specifically with Firefox causing my mac to black screen/shutdown involuntarily.

It happens specifically when I use the zoom-in function on firefox web pages (the pinch zoom).

Other times when it doesn't black screen, firefox would sometimes have this pixelated appearance (basically random squares interspersed around a web page at times) after I try zooming in.

Anything I could do to help prevent this problem?

The new version is uploaded but not released by mozilla... Please be patient.

by the way helper won't reinstall at all ... Chrome has already released the version although both were submitted almost simultaneously. In an emergency, you can use Chrome for a few days. github.com/mainIine/foe-helfer-extension/issues/2693

Hi, I spent several hours trying just to change the color of the downloads icon (thought it would take me 1 minute). First I tried to do it myself, then searched the internet. From what I found on the internet, some stuff doesn't work, some works partially and in an unexpected way, most of it is difficult to understand and modify. Finally I give up. Please, is it possible to make white the download pie and the arrow thing (when the download is finished). That's all I ask for. If possible, without using the var-- stuff, just using fill: or filter: or some other straightforward functions.

As the title says, Firefox 115.4 ESR and previous versions has DRM or HDCP that causes my external monitor to go black for a few seconds when video is attempted to be played for "some" sites such as MAX and HULU. It has taken me a LONG LONG time to track this down. Here is what I know.

  • This only happens in Firefox, not Edge for example.
  • With DRM off, or Wildivine off, no blank or black screen. FF will not play videos at Hulu or MAX in those cases, but also does not "disconnect" the signal to the external monitor.
  • This is 100% repeatable.

Now I dont want to muddy the waters so someone can point fingers at the issue being somewhere else such as firmware, drivers, etc., but I also want to share as much as I have found.

I am using a Lenovo laptop (my only PC) through a Lenovo Ultradock to an external Dell Hi Res monitor. The issue happens with either DP or HDMI connections. Cables are new, high speed and high quality and have been swapped out several times. Again, ONLY happens with Firefox

But... if the laptop is using the internal screen, it does not happen. So somewhow, perhaps, Firefox with DRM is going out to check the monitor to be sure it will display HDCP and that is when it blanks until FF is sure this will work, and the screen returns.

I am 99% sure of all this after updating video drivers, dock firmware, etc, etc, etc.

Can you help? I'd appreiate solving this one.

~Bob

hello

since few years im a bit surprised by the fact, that on firefox, it's harder and harder to do the following customisation : -enable or disable javascript -enable or disable pictures of webpages

the thing is, years ago it was just a one-click setting to change, and now it's looks like to be needed either to go on nerdly-menu (about:config, and know by heart the right one), or to use an addon (that i dont want)

do you know if there is a possibility, for an offline computer (mean bye addons), without going to about:config, to enable/disable both Javascript feature, and picture of webpages?

it's the same for customised search engine : years ago it was faisable with just entering the address of a new one into the common settings, now it's looks like an addon is required.... why?!


years ago no addon nor connection was needed to : -en/disable JS -en/disable images/pictures on webpages -add/remove search engine

..why?

thank you vm

On all windows in Firefox, both normal and private, I get what looks like brushstrokes over the text. Generally they disappear when I move the cursor, but they also appear and disappear without mouse moves. I have the same extensions running on other PC's but don't get this happening, only on this newly-built PC. Using Windows 11 version 22H2, Firefox ESR 115.4.0 64-bit. In the sample the brushstroke shows about 80 % down the page. It disappeared after about 30 seconds, and other appeared later. While writing this, the same kind of thing was happening on this page. Extensions Ecosia and Ghostery.

I'm trying to set the download location to a different drive, containing the current username. For example, if my username is Brett.Michaels, I want my default download directory to be G:\brett.michaels. Other browsers have a variable that is usable like {user_name} however I can only find reference to {home} for Firefox, which does not allow me to alter the drive. I've tried using Windows-based environment variables to no avail. Perhaps I'm missing something?

Thanks!

Hi,

I have a problem with youTube. I've always been able to access my channel sections simply by clicking on the section title with no issues. However, since last night, that is not working. Now, the only way I can see all the playlists in each section is if I right-click and open in a new tab.

Any ideas what's up? As far as I'm aware, it's not a connection problem and I've cleared the cache etc. Using a Mac.

It's a real pain having to open sections in a whole load of different tabs. Any pointers in the right direction would be much appreciated! Also, I'm not very tech-savvy :(

Many thanks, Maroulita

Hey there,

Starting with Firefox v115, you had to set layout.css.page-size.enabled to false in about:config to get the page orientation back for printing PDFs (i.e. Portrait or Landscape).

It seems with the release of v119, this once again is broken and the layout.css.page-size.enabled setting no longer works. Is there something else that needs to be done now? We rely heavily on this and our current workaround is installing the ESR version of Firefox but seems like it'll catch up eventually.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
