Hello! I work on a Mac and have constant problems with buffering and screen freezing. I have refreshed the browser twice as suggested.

Each time I log on or move to another page that colorful basketball appears for quite awhile. When I can finally move to the desired page, it freezes and that basketball appears again.

Help? I work from home and need to use this computer.

Thank you!

am seeing an issue in firefox on unix with accessing a web page which uses basic http authentication mechanism. It pops up for user id and password for basic authentication. When I enter the credentials and click submit the response received is 401 Unauthorized. Same webpage and authentication works in chrome browser on same system (so assuming no firewall issues). The Firefox and chrome is configured in a console where we test it. And both are requesting for the same host. I believe there is some configurations issue in Mozilla firefox that might be affecting it. Attaching the request and response for both.

Firefox version that has a problem : Mozila Firefox 78.4.0esr

Hi: Can anyone help me to recover BOOKMARKS which I've found missing after today's starting my Firefox Browser/Thunderbird and trying to use one of the BOOKMARKS: this is for the first time I've lost them just by opening the Program after I've about 3 weeks ago Upgraded my Windows 7 to Version 10 - under Windows 7 they were working properly without any 'accidental loss'.

Once again Netflix isn't able to play the videos on the FireFox browser. It told me that my browser was not updated, so I updated the Add-ons and then I got the dreaded "Widevine has crashed" again. This happened before in April 2021? I think and then it was fixed. I hope the FireFox team sees this and is able to fix this bug again. Any other suggestions from other users are welcomed.

Recently, I've been unable to view paid for video, for example on Netflix. I get the following error message:

The WidevineCdm Plugin has crashed. FATAL Clpp-Error [Category 6 - Code 6002]: {"browserError":""}

I'm using a macOS 10.95 and, says Firefox,:

"Note: The current version of Google Widevine is no longer compatible with older macOS versions such as OS X 10.9 and 10.10. Only macOS versions 10.11 and above are supported."

So my question, since it seems my mac is no longer compatible with Widevine, is whether there a way for me to watch video on Firefox? Perhaps with another plugin? Or no plugin? Perhaps this is an issue to take up with Widevine?

Thanks in advance.

Printing PDF to network printer

When printing a pdf from the built-in pdf viewer (pdf.js?) to a network printer, it's so slow as to be unusable. Save the same pdf and open it it in Xreader, click print, and it starts printing immediately. Size of the document seems to play a role; I knew it was slow from trying to print smaller documents in the past, but today I needed a hard copy of a 68MB pdf, and hours later, it still had not printed.

I'm running latest Linux Mint Debian Edition 4 Debbie and latest Firefox in its repositories, 78.11.0esr (64-bit). Printer is Canon imageRunner 2200, it doesn't have any other slow printing problems, as I stated above.

Problem seems to have existed for a long time...

Hello.

Since updating to Firefox 89, I have been experiencing problems playing videos shared on Google Drive. (The problem occurred in the Devloper Edition of version 89, and version 89 was released to regular Firefox without a solution. When I start playing a video in Google Drive, it plays fine for the first few minutes, but then suddenly the video stops and the video screen goes black, and there is no response when I press the play button. The only solution to this is to reload the web page, but this is very inconvenient as the video stops in the middle and when you reload again it starts playing from the beginning.

Sorry for my bad english. Thanks.

in palce of that it has been replaced I guess by services.sync.prefs.sync.extensions.activeThemeID Well this option doesn't do shit. I still got my theme sync even with restarting the browser. It's very disappointing.

Hi. I've noticed similar messages like this after previous Firefox upgrades, but not for the latest.

My Firefox ESR was automatically updated to 78.11 on June 1, 2021. Since then I have not been able to access Amazon Prime. The error says:

Your web browser is missing a digital rights component.

In your web browser’s address bar, type about:addons, press Enter, and then on the left, click Plugins. For the Widevine Content Decryption Module, select Always Activate, and then refresh the video’s page and try watching the video. If the video doesn’t play, go back to Plugins, click the gear icon at the top of the page, and then click Check for Updates. When the plugins have updated, refresh the video’s page, and then try watching the video.

The suggestions get me no where. It is already on "Always Activate" and newer updates are available.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling a early version, but this does not work either. I get a message at the top saying that "Firefox is installing components needed to plate the audio or video on this page. Please try again later." "Later" is apparently never.

Has any else had this issue? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
