I can't watch Amazon Prime videos using Firefox 76.0 - 32 bit on Linux Mint 19.3 - 32bit. I do appreciate that this became a long standing battle, judging by the archived material but has the towel now been thrown in? Root cause seems to be that the Widevine plugin has been withdrawn from Firefox and that being so, there must be a good reason.

When the question was archived with a tick was placed on the best answer. That the Widevine plugin can no longer be added from within Firefox, suggests to me that it is now game over. Am I being too pessimistic?

I don't want work-arounds that never seem to last long in this area, ideally I am looking for a permanent fix on the lines that Google will co-operate and promise not to move the goal-posts without supplying the information needed to Mozilla in order to update Firefox first, so that the Widevine plugin can be made available once again and all be covered under Linux updates.

An outright refusal in the above assessment, if correct, would at least demonstrate that the matter was political and that the solution to it is necessarily political too. Something that could likely gain traction in Europe at least.

Any reply welcome, thanks.

Hello,

My time is wrong in Firefox. When I see the time stamps of my productivity on any social or business site, they are about 4 hours ahead. In other browsers (Chrome & Edge), everything is fine. In Windows, my time is properly set. This includes my Time Zone in Control Panel as well.

I have uninstalled Firefox, restarted, and did a fresh install. I am having the same issue.

YouTube videos (both embeded and on website) seem to load (I can see thumbnails when I hover cursor over timeline) but will throw "An error occurred. Please try again later." when I click play.

Youtube debug info: "errorCode": "fmt.decode", "errorMessage": "An error occurred. Please try again later.", "wr": "GENERIC_WITHOUT_LINK"

This also happens in Private Browsing and Safe mode (addons disabled) in Firefox 75.0 and 76.0.1 (different user profiles) This issue does not occur in other browsers I have installed (Chromium, Iridium, Google C, and Pale Moon)

Everything was working fine a few hours ago, I have made no hardware, software or config changes.


EDIT: Just noticed the edit button, added a cropped screenshot of the issue.

My Folders Pane has entirely disappeared from Gmail. If I move my cursor to the left of the screen I DO NOT get a double arrow that allows me to retrieve the pane. I am NOT missing individual folders; I am missing the whole pane. I attach screenshot.

The folders pane is NOT missing from a different email app I sometimes use - Fastmail

My gmail account is working in Chrome on my android phone and android tablet. The problem is only in Mozilla on this computer.

I am running Linux Mint 19.2 Tina with Ubuntu 18.04 base bionic, Cinnamon 4.2.3. Restarting the computer and Firefox does not help.

Any help you can provide will be much appreciated. Maybe the answer is to uninstall and then reinstall Firefox and Thunderbird? Would prefer something easier.

Thanks!!!!

Whenever I open a new window, it starts in a certain standard size (at least in Firefox 77). In earlier versions it would always open "maximised". So for me this behaviour changed (not sure exactly in which version it changed). Since I use my browser almost always with maximised windows, I have to maximise manually all the time now, and that is inconvenient. How can I get the old behaviour back? Preferably I would be able to establish a size I like (maximised, or otherwise as big a size as I set), and then save those settings for the future. Alternatively, I would also be happy if Firefox remembers the size of the window I closed latest. Is there any way to accomplish this?

And neither is the Temporary Containers Addon. I just did fresh brand new initial Firefox install on both the most updated version of Windows 10 and the most recent version of Ubuntu 20.04. All addons appear in the toolbar except these 2. I've tried installing these 2 first. I've tried installing them last, then disabling all the other addons, uninstalling them and reinstalling them. Nothing will make them appear in the toolbar, yet they appear as enabled when they display under the addons > extensions. Also, hitting the extension shortcuts will not bring up the addon interaction screen for any of the addons, e.g. Ctrl U or Ctrl <period> or whatever the relevant shortcut command is. This appears to only be an issue with FRESH Firefox install, because on my other computer running Windows 10 I've had the Multiaccount Containers Addon in the toolbar for 6 months without issue through many older versions of Firefox; and after I updated (rather than fresh install) to this latest version the Multiaccount Containers Addon remains in the toolbar without issue.

Can anyone suggest how I can get theMultiaccount Containers Addon and Temporary Containers Addon to appear in the toolbar? And why are none of the extension shortcuts working - could I be executing them on the wrong screen? I've been trying them on the Addons > Extensions screen.

If I search by highlighting text and then right click + 'search google for...' the following link address in the next page always includes the text "client=ubuntu".

As i'm using ubuntu that might not seem strange, but it's strange to me because I use this addon which is supposed to spoof my browser and O/S and also in about config I have: privacy.resistFingerprinting and "privacy.trackingprotection.fingerprinting.enabled"' both set to "true".

Can anyone tell me how google is able to detect this info?

And seeing as the about:config settings dont seem to work... how i'm able to stop it?

I have a problem that occurs on most websites that use icons. All icons show up as blank white boxes, including Google Maps and Wunderground Map. I've attached a screenshot of Wundermap below as an example. I assume its due to some sort of security setting, but I'm not sure which one.

My extensions are DarkReader, uBlock Origin, HTTPS everywhere, and Privacy Badger, but the problem persists even when I disable all of those extensions.

We currently would like to upgrade our centrally installed Firefox ESR version and would like users to keep their settings and be disrupted minimally. Specifically we would like to upgrade from 68.4.2 to the current 68.8.

I am aware that as of Firefox 67 a dedicated profile version is used for each Firefox version (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/dedicated-profiles-firefox-installation).

I had assumed that as it is only a minor upgrade of the same ESR version a new profile would not be necessary, however it creates a new empty profile by default.

The suggested solution to use Firefox Sync is not an option as creating Firefox Sync accounts for all our users would even be more overhead.

Is it indended behaviour that new profiles are created for the same ESR (major) version? Is there a simple way to migrate existing profiles?

Thanks.

It's good to have those built-in shortcuts, but it's stupid you can't modify them. When I use this website I can't input the division sign by pressing / on the keypad because it's the shortcut for Quick Find. I guess this is because the place to input is not a normal text box like in WolframAlpha , but part of the whole webpage(?). Add the function to customise shortcuts is much easier than let Firefox recognise and deal with this situation, I think. In fact, most software supports customising shortcuts, so I'm surprised to find there's no way for Firefox to do that.

FF 69.0.1 I clicked the "star shaped icon" which you click to "save this URL to bookmarks." It turned blue as usual. I then clicked on it to invoke the dropdown menu allowing me to enter the words I wanted to use. The menu did not drop down. I used a "two finger click" (OSX) and an option to "remove from address bar" appeared. I thought this would clear the bookmark, but instead, the icon itself went away.

How the HELL do I get it back? WHY didn't the dropdown appear as usual?

Hey everybody

I'm having troubles installing an addon. Now I just noticed, that Firefox is communicating an older version than itself, than it actually is. As you can see in the screenshot (hopefull, since I'm using it in German), the website https://addons.mozilla.org thinks that I'm on v68, while in reality, I just updated it to 76.

I did play around a bit with addons and settings for data privacy - and I'm pretty confident, that the problem is within a wrongly set configuration - but I can't for the life of me find and reverse it.

I would really appreciate any pointers you can give me!

Linux 7.8.2003. Just did yum update. Firefox was updated. My customization (menu bar on) was OK. Running it, my bookmarks appear as before, but clicking on one, nothing happens. Ditto Help menu, where I tried to see Firefox version number. Just now, I tried again, by accident holding mouse button down instead of clicking on Bookmarks or Help, move pointer to desired option, release button. This amazingly works. So I can tell you version of Firefox is 68.7.Oesr (64-bit). (I usually use NoScript, but disabled it for this test, same result.) I am sending this help request from a different machine, so did not click Share Data.
