I use firefox 83.0 on Ubuntu 20.04. Browser does not play videos on Twitter, Reddit or Netflix. Youtube plays some videos but some videos show error "your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available". I cannot find any viable solution. what should I do?

I installed chrome and it plays all the videos. So there must not be any problem in OS.

Hi all, am using Debian linux with Firefox 60.8.0esr (64-bit). I know the whole spiel about Firefox not supporting java applets any longer, but I have some old IoT devices that i need to get configured and they use a java applet for some portions of the configuration. I understand Firefox ESR 52 still supports java applets, and i've downloaded version 52.9.0esr and extracted it to its own location. Now i can start it without interferin with my v60 profile by running it like: "./firefox --no-remote --profile ." I had to go into options and turn off the automatic update because otherwise it updates it to v60. Then I downloaded jre-8u221-linux-x64.tar.gz and extracted that. Now the question is how do i get the plugin installed into the Firefox v52? thanks

Today I updated my Firefox Developer Edition to version 89.0b2 and now I just can not look at this browser anymore, "Inspired new tab design" is taking too much space and now became largest and at the same time least information-dense panel in my entire desktop! I searched around the web for a bit in hopes that I will find a theme or an add-on that will revert this particular change but no luck. I really want to revert to old UI look (at least tabs bar), there should be default theme or option to get back to old style. After some investigation I found userChrome.css but don't really want to install it (maybe this is actually the way of doing this kind of styling). Please help me revert UI design to old one.

I have a new machine with a new install of Ubuntu 12.04. In Firefox the menu bar is missing. I have the black border with 3 buttons in the left and the current page title. I also have a tabs bar and toolbars. I've looked in the forum/help and tried the suggestions there, here's what happened:

If I right-click the tab bar, the only toolbars shown in the drop-down menu are Navigation, Bookmarks and Add-ons, so I can't show the menu bar that way.

I don't have a Firefox button.

I've tried creating a new toolbar and moving all buttons except the address field and google search across in case it was a lack of space on the toolbar but that didn't help.

I can't reset the profile as I don't have a help menu.

I've re-installed Firefox and there was no change.

Does anyone have other suggestions please?

I am running program which open "chromium-browser" with following command-line parameters in Linux.

--incognito = Causes the browser to launch directly in incognito mode. ↪

--no-first-run = Skip First Run tasks, whether or not it's actually the First Run. Overridden by kForceFirstRun.

                   This does not drop the First Run sentinel and thus doesn't prevent first run from occuring the 
                   next time chrome is launched without this flag. 

--disable-save-password-bubble

--password-store = Specifies which password store to use (detect, default, gnome, kwallet). --password-store=basic

--no-default-browser-check = Disables the default browser check. Useful for UI/browser tests where we want to avoid having

                               the default browser info-bar displayed.

--window-size = Specify the initial window size: --window-size=w,h --window-size=1024,1024

--app = Specifies that the associated value should be launched in "application" mode.


Now I want to do the same thing with "firefox" browser. I need help to find firefox command-line parameter for firefox which is similar to chromium-browser.

I searched firefox website but not able to find alternatives for same.

Thanks in Advance.

Hi all, so since a few versions I have noticed a difference in video buffering. Firefox now buffers a very small amount of a video, like it does when mediasource extensions are turned on. I did turn them off however so videos were usually downloaded automatically all the way, which was very convenient for me, instead of just when you play the video the next few seconds. This doesn't work anymore as if I enabled mediasource extensions and every video used it.

Is there some way to revert that behaviour? I guess it was done out of performance reasons. How can I change it back, e.g. make the video buffer bigger?

Thanks a lot

None of the question related, solved my problem, first, I don't use windows; second, questions related are from years ago, nad seems outadted, because much of that questions suggest to change the values of network.protocol-handler.external.magnet, but in Iceweasel 29 I can't find anything similar., should I create it? what kind of value is, boolean, string...? I don't have it some clear, or at least in your support is not clear at all.

And this link which is recommended in some relates questions : http://kb.mozillazine.org/Register_protocol is broken, at least to me is broken.

so... how may open magnet links in this disspaointing browser?. I don't want to use Chrome/Chromium because they're worse.

I'm using Linux.

just installed FF 18.0 on Linux (Centos 5.8) where 17.0.1 has been running fine.

I always install in a local (to my login) directory, and have a desktop launcher to start it. I download each .tar.bz2 FF package to a subdir, where I unpack it, overwriting whatever was already in the firefox directory in that location.

doing that, I get the error above. so I renamed the directory and did a fresh extraction into the firefox directory that tar creates when unpacking the archive. SAME PROBLEM.

moving that directory aside and re-extracting the 17.0.1 archive yields a working Firefox.

What can I do to solve this problem?

the troubleshooting info below came from FF 17.0.1, since FF18.0 doesn't work.

Can't find the option to disable auto updates in version 65. One of the reasons I haven't updated to the latest version. If it can't be disabled, I'll be done using your browser. I stopped using Microsoft Windows precisely because of that behavior. There is nothing more annoying than using your browser and it says, "I can't do anything without a restart." and being presented with a restart button except that when you click the restart button, the browser closes. It never restarts.

I want control over my own computer. I want control over whether this updates or not. I've been doing this longer than you and I'm an IT professional. This can be done a whole lot better.

I'm keeping all of my other machines at 64 pending an answer to this question. Very disappointed that I may have to find a different alternative browser not based on google code.
