hi there!

is there a way to open a firefox tab in a new private window? it's something i'm wishing for all the time!

(google posts from many years ago state a way to select this option from the menu, but if it worked it no longer is in the menu.)

my reason for needing this so often is that i have many add-ons that block trackers, ads, etc, which are disabled for my private mode. so if a tab won't load, it would be the easiest way by far to get it to do so!

thanks for any help!

Upgraded to a new Firefox version. Lost the ability to separate the Homepage from New Window behaviour. Is there no way to specify these two things separately? It seemed to be working fine when I first upgraded, but in the options it shows everything as "Blank Page", so if I want to change my homepage URLs, I have to set it to that and if I do that, it undoes the separation of the homepage and new windows and I have to go set it again in about:config...? One of my most used features was this separation of the Homepage with New Windows, gave me a lot of control.

Playing youtube video on Firefox has become a hazard. The power consumption sharply rises whenever a video is plying AND (specifically) when the this youtube tab is the one open (current). As soon as I move to another tab and let the video continue playing this problem disappears and resource consumption looks normal. Then if I go back to the youtube tab then it spikes again sharply.

It has been like this for a week or couple of days now.

I've been able to sync my firefox account on a university computer until 2 weeks ago. Now when i login to the university computer (in the classroom where I teach), my account "logs in" but nothing syncs (no bookmarks or passwords).

I haven't changed anything with my account. How can I access my synced info on this University computer?

Upgraded from 60.9ESR to 78.8ESR Tons of empty white space being wasted in my address bar drop down, and the preferences+addons pages now only occupy half the screen so I have to scroll more to see all my options, click to fully read text boxes and open sub-menus?!

How can I make these things more compact? The Customize options don't affect them, though I've changed the "blow-up" address bar behaviour using policies.json.

Hi,

When I load google photos, Firefox is able to display the first few rows of photos fine, but as I scroll, the remaining images don't load. I've tried all the usual things, like disabling protection, restarting in safe mode and even clearing cookies.

Is there any way to fix this?

Hey, my website "www.kosmetikstuebchen-nicole.de" is not correctly displaying in Firefox Browser. In Google Chrome, Opera and Safari there is no problem. You can see the problem on the screenshot. I still ask my provider "Host Europe" if they are able to explain, why during using the Firefox Browser the website is not correct. They just told me, that maybe there might be a problem with the accessability view, but they were not able to solve the problem! Is there anybody who can help me to solve that problem? Thanks a lot!

The configuration on page General - Connection Settings is set to Use System Proxy Settings. How can I find out I which proxy my Firefox browser is actually using?

Note: This very question has already been asked at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1208062. It has an answer which is marked as Chosen Solution although the question owner explicitly stated it doesn't answer the question, and indeed it doesn't because it just says to look at the configuration page which doesn't contain the information. That thread has been archived. Perhaps it should be deleted or at least the Chosen Solution mark removed.

When Instagram plays a video and I move to another tab (other than wherein instagram.com is open) then suddenly the Instagram video stops playing completely.

How on earth is this possible in "privacy first" Firefox? When did I gave permission for a video to stop playing just by clicking another tab?

I want a standard HTML5 video to continue to play in any of the tabs that are open regardless of which tab I am clicking-on in the middle of play. Once upon a time that was the case. I want to go back to that state please.

https://www.nectar.com/ has changed. The log in page is now:- https://www.nectar.com/id/start/enter-card-number The saved password for https://www.nectar.com doesn't appear or work on this page. The automatic 'Saving 'new' password' doesn't appear or work. Deleting and saving the new address https://www.nectar.com/id/start/enter-card-number doesn't work either because Firefox Logins and passwords deletes everything after .com?

Round and round and round we go.

Why is there no way to contact Firefox? Nobody on/in the Community can make the required technical changes?

So this is all just frustration and time wasting?

Shouldn't Firefox have recognised this themselves and made the necessary changes?

Hello,

I used my firefox account to restore my browsing history after I switched to a new hard drive. I compared the contents of places.sqlite from before and after the switch. (I can do this because I made a backup of the old places.sqlite.) And I noticed that many entries of moz_historyvisits are missing in the new database. I made a graph about this, in which I am using pythons sqlite3 library to inspect the databases moz_historyvisits.visit_date column. For every visit_date I checked if it is still present in the new database or if it got lost. The pattern seems highly irregular.

Does firefox intend to maintain a complete history? By which criteria did individual history entries get lost? Is there a way to restore a complete version of my browser history from my account?

Any help is appreciated.

Hello together,

when implementing canvas graphics with 2D context, I notified that the latest FF 87.0 on windows is much slower than chrome/edge/opera on windows and also much slower as safari on mac. I drilled into detail and detected that it was caused when drawing polygons with color gradient (see attached image). Means that using canvascontext.createLinearGradient() instead of flat colors makes it slow. On the other hand using flat colors is perfectly fast.

I wondered, because I had much better experience with FF and installed an earlier version (78.9.0esr) on the same windows workstation and the problem was gone. Seams, that some change made the newer FF slower with this type of graphic..

CPU is i7 8650U 1.90 - 2.11 GHZ, OS is Windows 10 version 20H2

But the effect is the same on all windows workstations I tested. Would be happy to see, that I can use FF again with these type of graphic apps.

When I type in ANY URL, I want exactly that to be loaded. And not anything else.

When I type in mozilla.rog into the address bar, I want firefox to fetch the page mozilla.rog. I want firefox to try, and if it does not exist, I demand to be notified that it does not exist. With an error message. URL not found. Error 404.

But instead, Firefox silently changes mozilla.rog to mozilla.org (and probably any page e.g. from .rog to .org, and from .ocm to .com , and the like) without my permission, and loads this other page I did not type in.

I do NOT and NEVER allow ANY program to alter my commands without notifying me.

so... which about:config setting disables this autocorrection-behavior?

I have a virtual w10x64 machine which I need to play old flash content on a specific (trusted) website which is the only one allowed in mms.cfg and which does not use https. With the latest update to 78.9 FF does not open the flash content and the pages anymore. So I reverted to 78.8 but the auto-update always intercepts.

How can I disable the auto-updates for good? Is there possibly a policy for this?

I think the FF programmers need better imagination on specific scenarios before they impose so called "security features" on the users and break their processes.
