Well its 2020 and there ain't no such thing anywhere on the page. Why is this still here? And is this common now? They are too disorganized that they can't update articles like this that are dispensing incorrect information?

I'm on the latest version of Firefox, and it's unable to play videos on Amazon.com & Netflix.com. Neither did the one before 96.0. I first saw this on Netflix.com and when the tech started asking questions about my operating system, I knew they had pulled a fast one. Now Amazon.com has done the same thing with Firefox. This browser should be hiding the underlying operating system, because it's not necessary. I can use both websites with Chrome and have no issue. The same version of Firefox is on my laptop, but it has no problems because that thing is on Windows 10.

I won't bother with all the nonsense written about troubleshooting, because this is strictly the functionality of those websites peeking under the browser to check the O.S. Firefox needs to fix this hole immediately! You're messing with my money now. Monopolies shouldn't be able to control our hardware like this; they're not paying for any of it.

Oh, my TV is having a problem with the apps, so I was forced to watch videos with my computer instead. My laptop screen is too small and can't have my booming speakers connected to it. My desktop monitor is 34".

When I logged on to FF today, I was urged to continue with an update. I think there was also something about "refreshing". I absentmindedly agreed, figuring it would be okay as other update times before, but not so. I was unaware that the newest update would remove some, or all, of my extensions. I had some important saved data into one of the extensions.

Is there any way for me to go back to the last version just to retrieve the data for safekeeping from the extension and then continue on with the new version as if nothing was amiss?

When I clicked permission, I noticed a file folder "Old Firefox Data" was installed on my desktop. Can I use the contents of that folder to ferret out the information I need?

Thank you so much for any help and suggestions!

First of all, there are so many articles on this site and others that don't update reflecting the huge changes recently in Autoplay options. So many settings from the past don't work or aren't even there anymore. Why are these pages not updated? Who even uses old version of this browser? 99% of the info online is irrelevant because of this sloppiness. Just go to Yahoo.com and see if anything works. Good luck with that. I did find one extension that did work (so far): Disable HTML5 Autoplay But we shouldn't need an extension to do something so basic, so intrinsic to web browsing. We all know distractions impeded our ability to get things done and cost billions every day as people's productivity sharply drops. There is nothing more distracting than a video! So its the number one thing to control. As long as you're over about 4 years old of course. Under that and we're fascinated by unfamiliar shiny objects.

So I'm curious about all the autoplay options I have in about:config and if any of these settings matter anymore, now that I have an extension that does what Firefox seems incapable of doing. When I search for autoplay, this is what I get, sorted alphabetically. I noticed that some are in bold. Why is that? And why is Mozilla so out of touch with us that they can't explain what each of these things actually does? I wonder if they even know. You should be able to hover your mouse cursor over an item and a popup should tell you what it does. Is that so difficult? Guess so.

Last night my Firefox 94.0.2 was hacked. When running Firefox, it would lock up my desktop. It disabled Norton Security, it disable other installed security software, and it disabled Windows System Restore. The hacker put up a message claiming to be Microsoft Support, with a phone number to call for help. This was a scam. I ran Firefox refresh, and that removed the hacker's program from Firefox, but then I had to do a full repair of my Window's installation. To protect my system, and prevent this from happening again, I added "xpinstall.enabled = false" into about.config. Please let me know if this will prevent a web site from installing a dangerous hack into Firefox, or if there is something else that I need to do. I have used Firefox for years, and have never encountered this problem before. Firefox is my favorite browser, but I am now afraid to use it. Please advise me what to do. Thanks, Jim

"Shrink page to fit paper size" does not work printing .pdf files ("Letter" 8-1/2 x 11 paper, or any other size). In the document I am trying to print, only the upper 3/4 of page is printed on full paper page (remainder does not carry over to next page). Width is correct. Full page will print if 80% reduction is chosen, but reduction is not in same proportion as paper page. Windows 7. Firefox 82.0.2. Read numerous articles and posts. Nothing works. Printer is Brother HL-2270DW connected via USB. Using about:config > print :

    print.printer_HL-2270DW_USB.print_paper_data    The value is "1"  
    print.printer_HL-2270DW_USB.print_shrink_to_fit     The value is "true"  
    scaling is .8  (tired 1.0 without success)

All other "print" keys are as described in numerous Google items on this topic. Right now I can only save the document as a .pdf, and then open in in Adobe DC that is installed on same computer. Document prints correctly. This is a pain. I read in one Google post that starting with version around 55 Firefox no longer uses Adobe plug-in for pdf files, but switched to its own plug-in - it is clumsy, and as in this situation it does not work. PLEASE go back to using Adobe plug-in.

I am not even sure how in the world to explain what info I need. Please be patient, because I don't want a bunch of answers that don't answer this very important question to me: when you type in your email, or user name, which ever is required to log into a website, how it is that the user name is remembered? Which part of the browser is recalling the user name and how do you stop it? I never ever allow browsers to remember/retain passwords. Now, I am having real concern about the part of the browser that recalls user name and whatever else. I went to log into a site, Amazon, and I usually don't even have to type the full email when my full email appears. It is a common thing for all of us. But I see a half dozen of my other emails and possible user names -- as though someone was trying to log in and used a name that I would never use. It was abusive, too. I have a strong feeling, too, that this mozilla site, some people in this site, do not honor people's privacy. I cannot see how in the world anyone could create something like that otherwise. You would have to have access to an individual's browser in their notebook, and use it to try to log into sites, there were a few of them, using various user names. How can one do that? Well some of those people who lurk around here pretending to help, but don't have enough to do and don't know what being professional means. Anyone here who would dare violate anyone's privacy can be charged with a crime. that is theft and worse. To use someone's browser to try to log into sites like Amazon. To be guessing at user names, and making some up. I never use anything but what I actually use, so to see my emails and usernames, PLUS made up names that someone thinks they might use, or someone here thinks oh this woujld be funny, is the worst kind of business that will get mozilla right off the map here. Please how do I get in touch with the creators of this? I can take a screen shot. I have done that before. No browser recalls any thing unless it is has been used and is stored. That is how the user name is recalled, but how could that happen if I never used that specific name? Who could have done that? Please if I need to explain better, ask. This is very important. Very important.

I cannot turn on the audio input and the audio output in Discord web application when running Firefox for desktop PC.

Context: after upgrading FF I started using the new version the day after. I always set FF to open with the tabs I was using before exiting. When I opened FF I got a bunch of youtube offline notifications as usual. I didn't get twitter offline notifications but this happens from time to time. Eventually notifications from yt stopped but I only noticed it many hours later when I tried to Push notifications on twitter https://twitter.com/settings/push_notifications I got this as a result: Unsupported browser It looks like your browser doesn’t support push notifications. Important most likely: when I was working during the afternoon FF started lagging I got impatient so I ended the heaviest FF process with Windows Task Manager. I could continue working normally. Trying to find a fix on google I ended up here: about:debugging#/runtime/this-firefox#serviceworkers

The YT service worker always shows:

  • Stopped - Not listening for fetch events

But the twitter service worker shows Stopped (if twitter isn't open yet) and 'running' if it is open. However it always shows no matter if it's running or not: Listening for fetch events

In Debugging - runtime Youtube Service worker I clicked: 'Start' (it showed running instead of stopped)+ 'Push'

Tons of offline yt notifications popped up at the right corner of the screen as usual, I did notice though that they were offline, they weren't happening at that moment. After like a minute again showed the same: * Stopped - Not listening for fetch events

For twitter Service Worker it showed it was running so I clicked 'Push' instead of tons of offline notifications from people I follow and followers I got only one notification pop at the bottom from twitter itself saying: New notification, I clicked it and it took me to twitter notifications where all of them are. I tried pushing notifications on here: https://twitter.com/settings/push_notifications but again: Unsupported browser - It looks like your browser doesn’t support push notifications. The Service Worker keeps saying: Listening for fetch events

Is there anything I can do to make it work all the time as it used to? What about doing a FF restore to some days ago? In the past doing that sorta restore helped but with a very different issue. However could it work? Any other fixes that I should try?

The image attached shows a Service Worker for spotify but I never allowed a notification from it, that I can remember? If I did, I never got any.
