  1. that is what I get sometimes (not often), no idea what happens, but am getting what @Comrade_Hajji is getting, If i click the 3 lines can goto Libary and history
  2. atm moment I still got it all, the sidebar with Home, trending subscribtions, and If you click the 3 lines everything is there, on odd ocassions it ALL does disappear and only get the About at botton, if it does do that ,often a refresh or restart of browser cures it 52.9.0 eSR here
  3. one thing i have noticed using either UBO or ABP is if you block the element for the you are using a adbocker and put in filters, when page is refreshed it comes back with another some you can bypass, some you can't

  5. is there a universal filter to use to block the adblock warnings on a site, rather than have to enter a site pacific for each site @@||example.com^$generichide i did try this where example.com is replace by the site domain
  6. i know this is an old thread but i think I have Quicktime going in Firefox, without installing quicktime what I did was ============================== In about:config set plugins.load_appdir_plugins set to true --------------------------------------------------- create a folder plugins ====================== place these dll/s in the folder npqtplugin.dll npqtplugin2.dll npqtplugin3.dll npqtplugin4.dll npqtplugin5.dll Put plugins folder into C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\browser restart browser test page http://camendesign.co.uk/code/video_for_everybody/test_qt.html https://archive.org/details/Davidleeking-testVideoUsingMovFormat286
  7. have I got this correct ? Create A txt File With Following pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); pref("general.config.filename", "config.js"); Name It config-prefs.js Place Here C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref Create a txt File With Following // needs to start with a comment line Components.utils.import("resource://gre/modules/Services.jsm"); Services.obs.addObserver(function (aSubject, aTopic, aData) { var chromeWindow = aSubject; chromeWindow.setTimeout(function () { Components.utils.import("resource://gre/modules/UserAgentOverrides.jsm", chromeWindow); chromeWindow.UserAgentOverrides.init(); }, 1000); }, "browser-delayed-startup-finished", false); Name it config.js And Place Here C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox Now you can use useroverride strings this is what i used to have and the general.useragent.override.xxxxxx would work now they don't I would have general.useragent.override Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; rv:56.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/56.0 then general.useragent.override.whatismybrowser Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; rv:73.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/73.0 and whatismy browser would read i am upto date on 8.1 FF 73,,, now it seems as if it is sniffing out the correct version as being on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; rv:56.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/56.0 where have i gone wrong
  8. to get mpeg-4 mime videos to work in firefox apparently i need these 2 set to true or defaulte media.windows-media-foundation.enabled (it;s not in FF) but instead of this I got this as default media.windows-media-foundation.allow-d3d11-dxva (this was already in FF) will i have to add this in manually is it a string or boolean media.directshow.enabled which this is as some sites i goto i have video format not supported, yet on html5 test i have ALL blue ticks
  9. has this now disappeared as i no longer she this instead it is this ""https://www.youtube.com/supported_browsers"" is there another test site to see if you have all installed i found this https://html5test.com/
  10. was this ever cured i still don't see vidoes on instagram on FF 52.9 "IF" they do appear don;t play, evn tho i have primetime and widevine i put this in the \chrome\userChrome.css userContent,css fike as another line to what is already in there QUOTE 129 posts OS: XP Pro x86 Country: Report post Posted March 21, 2019 (edited) You guys give up too easily, is this the infamous XP lair of fanatics or not!? Fortunately there is (for time being, anyway) a pretty simple fix for this "video problem". (I use quotes because it has nothing to do with video as such.) You don't need to switch or recompile browsers either - at least not right now over this particular issue. Apparently ESR 52.9 handles CSS flex layout a bit differently, so with the current Instagram code the video and its surroundding elements kindly get the height of 0 pixels... This can be fixed by modifying a surrounding <div> container to use block display instead of flex. If you use uBlock Origin, you can add the following rule to your My filters: instagram.com##div.ZyFrc[role=dialog]:style(display: block !important) (Just make sure Filterlists > Parse and enforce cosmetic filters is checked and that Settings > Default behavior > Disable cosmetic filtering is not checked or is overridden per-site for instagram.com.) The same can presumably be done with other styling/tweaking extensions, only the syntax may be a little different. I don't use anything else, so can't give you the specifics. If you don't use any such extensions and don't want to install them, you can just add the following CSS snippet to your userContent.css file (it's located in the chrome subdirectory under your Firefox profile folder. Edit: as @Dave-H pointed out, the file may not exist yet, in which case just create a new text file, put this stuff in it, and rename the file to userContent.css.) @-moz-document domain(instagram.com) { div.ZyFrc[role="dialog"] { display: block !important; } } i tried this and addiing in the usercontent.css file doeswnt seen to work , still can't see or play videos in instagram
  11. can someone help when firefox closes Ablock Plus is Not saving filters they used to, but not now , now what can i do dom.indexedDB.enabled is set to true, i did try removing ABP then reinstall it still same can't figure it out
  12. i don't see a folder called chrome in either main install folder or the profile folder do I create a folder called chrome in the profile folder ? i take it this is where it goes Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\frbggthb.default-1582150475918\chrome\userChrome.css then the file userContent.css with the above you posted sorry for being a bit vague n stupid here
  13. can you show what how where you did that as i see in UBO 1.17 you can't see to add filters
