Specifically this is interesting because regular youtube content *will play just fine*

This is something I can readily reproduce for testing, diagnosis, and troubleshooting.

Please note: I have literally completed all fundamental troubleshooting several times. I respect due diligence and double checking, its just that I wish to be clear I've spent a few hours today on this and am thus far unable to impact the situation at all. --Note on Note: This includes disabling settings/features in firefox. Everything having to do with privacy, networking, hardware accel, and probably another category has been toggled multiple ways. This does not include mucking about in the detailed settings page ( about:config, etc etc). I do not memorize about:config settings I just use reference material to achieve a goal then promptly move on in life, and I am not a professional web developer though I can program so I haven't attempted to fiddle there at all. All that is to say consider any suggestions involving about:config or similar depth of settings to be *untested by myself on this matter* and therefore ripe for suggestions!

Oh, I also have not tested this in a VM. Although I certainly can if requested. I can note that a VPN does not impact this described behavior.

Well, I am able to get teh Ads to play prior to a live stream, sometimes. Note: Ads are not always displayed anyway so I cannot really know the statistics on this for sure.

At this point I have reinstalled Windows10 several times and can still reproduce this problem. All windows security settings have been toggled without impact on core issue. This has been reproduced through multiple win10 reinstalls.

Other browsers, other operating systems will function. I can use firefox on my various linux systems. I can use several versions of firefox to play these same videos on my linux systems.

However win10 at whatever patch level is unable to utilize firefox to play youtube live streams. Again, nothing I've done has impacted this behavior ( reg yt vids OK w/ preview and chats, live stream vids NOT OK, though ads and chats display fine )

I'm several varieties of engineer (Electrical, Networking, Security, Systems - whatever other varieties HR departments decide to use ) and can happily grab whatever data, or create whatever testing conditions that can be asked of me.

Thank you,

I logged into my website using Firefox, 3 days ago and blamed the server for not allowing the images to appear in the Media Library properly. It took several attempts before the images would appear properly.

Today, when trying to upload a tiny 43KB image, the same issue happened, and again I blamed the hosting server.

However, I have tried uploading the same image to 5 different websites, using Firefox and the SAME thing happens. This time, it doesn't matter how many times I upload and delete the same image. It simply refuses to be displayed.

Back to the site I want the image uploaded in, and I used the Opera browser... POOF! Image uploads FINE and displays PERFECTLY in Opera, as well as AFTER logging out. Checking with the Brave browser, yes, it too sees the image... but when I try viewing the page in Firefox, the browser REFUSES to load the image.

I've tried 2 different computers using 2 different IP addresses, and an Android device, using Firefox and NOPE, the image REFUSES to load.

What is going on... am I the ONLY one experiencing this issue?

I've cleared cookies, I've rebooted my working computer... I've exhausted EVERY attempt at my end in trying to figure this out.

Can ANYONE shed some light on this issue please? I have many visitors to all of my sites that use Firefox, so this HAS to be resolved a.s.a.p.

Thank you in advance, Trish

I just started to run FF107, I don't understand why setting the compact option, do not really make things more dense. Same goes with all the menu.

Who needs all that spacing?

I have this

menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menuitem, menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menu {

 padding-block: 2px !important;

}

in the css file and still no "compactness"...

Thank you.

Good evening. I'm seeking some help with an issue I'm having with Firefox.

As stated above, Firefox insta-crashes on startup. Hangs on opening in troubleshoot mode, then crashes after another 20 seconds and asks me to submit a report.

I believe this may have to do with the amount of tabs I had open when last using the browser. This morning I opened it up with about 7.8k tabs, and then closed it after adding another hundred. After trying to open the browser again, that's when the issues started. Until that point, the browser had been responsive and stable.

I've tried doing fresh installs of the browser and inserting the old data from the old profile, restoring to yesterday, and even trying without internet connection.

I have a Ryzen 5600X and 32GB of RAM, so I do not believe system resources are an issue.

Attached are some images. If any help could be provided, that'd be much appreciated.

Hello, Q1: Is there a way to prevent Google search engine from accessing and sharing the city I live in via my IP address?

Q2: Can I block my IP address from Amazon, Google and other shareware/spyware garbage AND still access and use the internet?

At the bottom of a Google search result page I can read the city I live in based on my IP address. I would rather not have this shared as I search for products in different stores. I am signed into Google.

When I ran the "Privacy tab" in Firefox the Google search results still showed the city I live in.

I use a VPN, three security extensions("No-Script, Privacy-Badger & FaceBook Container) and Mozilla Firefox set at the "Strict" Browser Privacy level.

Thank you for reviewing these questions, Oliver

Hi, I've had Firefox 64 bit running on Windows for a while and recently was given a newer machine where I installed a newer version of the OS. I put the old HDD's as slaves in this new machine. So the old FF is in the slave machine.

I have also installed new Firefox on this new Win10 LTSC, but when I go looking in my now slave HDD I can see FF, but cannot see any bookmarks. Additionally, when I run the FF executable in the old HDD it still runs the new FF, without the old bookmarks.

So how can I extract the old bookmarks on the older FF? Without withdrawing the now slave HDD and making it a master again? As it's now missing most of the OS files too.

Thank you!

I know this is most likely a feature, but it's been annoying the hell out of me since I switched from Chrome and I don't know how to disable it. I have looked at multiple (~3) Reddit threads (two of which were archived) which gave me a total of 0 answers, I've looked at other forums, and I've found, get this, nothing. It's so annoying when for whatever reason, my music gets paused and then it's not at the volume I need it to be at, so I turn it up and then almost immediately turn it back down because of the audio fading. All I want is to know how to disable this, PLEASE.

In the past, when you opened up private browsing, it seamlessly integrated itself into your browser, being indistinguishable. At a glance, no one would know you were private browsing; it blended in.

In a recent update, Mozilla did something unthinkable and made private browsing an isolated instance from Firefox. This, of course, results in a purple flare in the taskbar in front of the entire world that you are private browsing.

I don't understand who thought this was a good idea. I want to know how to undo this horrible change.

See the screenshot where you can't see any information on all my open Firefox windows, except for my private browsing window.

When loading a page from a domain I haven't recently visited, it will almost always return the "Server Not Found - Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site," error message. If I reload the page, however, it will load. Sometimes I have to reload 2-6 times before it works, but it always eventually succeeds. When it does work, it often times fails to load certain elements like fonts, images, embedded videos, and occasionally whole stylesheets--things that often require calls to third party domain. Again, reloading the page (sometimes multiple times) will cause the page to load properly.

I have already tried:

  • Different browsers on same computer (issue does not occur)
  • Firefox on different computers with different OS on same network (issue does not occur)
  • Cleared cache (issue persists)
  • Troubleshooting/safe mode (issue persists)
  • Deleted prefs file (issue persists)

Trying to make sync work the way I want. Initial question:

I've synced tabs between Windows desktop and Android. Now I would like to bookmark all those tabs in the desktop browser, without opening them first. I've found out how to view them in the side bar, but I see no option to bookmark all tabs.

It would be nice to have synced Tabs in the Library window and Options panel.

I am using Firefox 107.0.1 on a Windows 10 machine. And, I am not able to login to the SSA website (US) using Firefox. I reviewed the answers in the post (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1354403) and tried several of the possible solutions (safe mode, rename/delete profile, reboot computer, etc) without any luck. I've attached a screenshot of the error when trying to login using Firefox.

Strangely, I've used Firefox exclusively to login (latest, maybe 6 months ago) before with no problem. It appears it is only when I currently am using Firefox. This is because I am able to use MS Edge without a problem.

Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

Thank you, Chris
