Thank you for your patience on this particular matter. Any solutions?

Short ver. of the problem: with a designated profile, I cannot launch a new window of an already running firefox using shortcut. Error msg "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. ...". I have to first active the firefox window and then use Ctrl+N, which is very annoying considering someone has to open/close many new windows a day.

Details: Here is my environment: in windows 10, say, I have three copies of firefox programs with their own profiles for different purposes. Something like this: D:\Firefox 1, this is the firefox program itself. D:\Firefox 2 D:\Firefox 3 D:\Profiles\1, this is the profile folder named as "1" D:\Profiles\2 D:\Profiles\3

I then use shortcut to launch each firefox, creating a shortcut then add options in the target line. Like this: D:\Firefox 1\firefox.exe -no-remote -profile D:\Profiles\1 D:\Firefox 2\firefox.exe -no-remote -profile D:\Profiles\2 D:\Firefox 3\firefox.exe -no-remote -profile D:\Profiles\3

I then use autohotkey to designate a particular hotkey to each firefox. Like this: Alt+1, launch firefox 1 Alt+2, launch firefox 2 Alt+3, launch firefox 3

The overall goal is to have complete separate operations.

The issue, I first use alt+1 or double click the shortcut with launch options to launch a firefox. Then, if I need to open another window of an already running firefox, which is minimized to the taskbar, I have to first activate the firefox window and then click ctrl+n. If I use the Alt+1 or double click the shortcut with launch options, an error msg pops saying, "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. ..." The ideal behavior is to use shortcut to launch a new window.

Thank you guys!

As I am frequent travel so I usually visit travel sites for updates and inquiry. Recently, I came across a webpage for inquiring flight PNR status of my air ticket which takes too much time too load on Firefox. But when I opened that webpage on chrome it loaded within a second. Why I am facing this issue? Is there any issue with my internet provider or browser?

Hello, I have noticed that the slowest way to download anything on my PC is through a browser, what I mean by that is when I download a game for example through steam I the download speed is between 200 to 350 Mb/s (25 to 44 MB/s) but when I am downloading anything using the browser the maximum I get is 20 Mb/s (2.5 MB/s), so I was wondering, is there any way to make it faster and just not less than 10% of my internet speed?

Hello, I had a PDF document I was working on and saved/downloaded but not all entered fields saved so I thought I would take a screenshot. I used CTRL+Shift+S and the screen darkened for the prompt "drag or click on the page to select a region. Press ESC to cancel" except now I cannot do anything. I cannot drag and click, and every small movement of my mouse brings up an error "Woah! Firefox Screenshots went haywire. Were not sure what just happened. Care to try again or take a shot of a different page? ReferenceError: ui is not defined". Pressing the escape button on the screenshot prompt does nothing, as well as pressing the esc key on the keyboard. If I use CTRL+Shift+S again it'll bring up a second screenshot prompt that works and takes a screenshot of the greyed out page. I would not like to just close firefox as it is a lot of work that I am going to lose. Thank you for your help!

I've got W11 set to automatically hide the Taskbar. Like everybody else it's to reclaim more screen.

In Firefox, I like having the menu bar, tabs, URL bar, and bookmark toolbar available. Problem is, by the time you add the typical website's menu structure, I've lost 25-35% of my whole screen!

Is there a Firefox setting to give me Taskbar's autohide convenience?

The archived thread on this topic has been archived, and the "answer" did not address the need. It appears that Amazon, ebay and other sites prevent this happening, overwriting the search and frequently also deleting the trail of previous occupants of the tab.

I do not want Bezos etc to control how I use my computer, or Firefox. Please provide a fix for this defect.

Capturing Firefox with OBS - Tab freeze when on other virtual desk, a way to prevent this?

Hello,

For teaching purpose, I need to do interactive presentations with both a regular slide presentation (using pympress), interactive activities through either Miro or Mentimeter both being in Firefox and a few other things (depending on what I teach at the time).

In order to mix those windows on the screen (and also because sometimes those are streamed), I capture all of them in OBS and have a bunch of scenes which organize and size everything depending on what I currently focusing on.

Each of those windows are on a different virtual desk to make it manageable, and thus I am not always on the virtual desk where Firefox is, for example when I am explaining something with slides, I am on the virtual desk with the presenter console. However I often still need to have the content of Miro/Mentimeter on the screen so that I can link my explanation with what students do.

Now the problem I have is that it seems the rendering of the pages in Firefox freeze when I change of virtual desk, and thus students might add things on Miro/Mentimeter and I do not see it because the page is frozen. When I get back to the virtual desk, suddenly all the changes students made pop-up. It's extremely frustrating, both for me and students, as sometimes they asked questions related to what I was explaining before and then I have to go backwards.

Is there any way to make Firefox keep rendering pages when they are not on the screen? Any option? I have tried searching about:config with rendering / refresh, but came up with nothing. When looking that issue online, I found the "Always active Window (Always Visible)" extension which supposedly prevent the hidden property of pages to go to true, but that has not solved the problem.

Any help or tips on how to solve this would be greatly appreciated!

Sincerely, Sleris

I have an application that displays a pop up in another window. Downloads can be performed, however when I download a file (.doc, .xls, etc) The download icon and menu are hidden and it's not visible. The file downloads but there's no notification.

This doesn't happen if the downloads is called in the main window (without open a pop window). Instead the file is shown on the corner and the downloads menu is visible . Is there any way to handle both scenarios?

A feature for editing PDF files has recently been added to the released code. I cannot find comprehensive documentation for it. If such exists, a pointer would be appreciated.

Here is the specific problem with which I am struggling. I am marking up a converted web page (Waze) with the tool with the pencil icon. That starts out OK. However, after a while, it gets into a mode in which it thinks I am trying to select some of my previous markings. Once a box has been selected all I can do is move the content or delete it. I do not want to do that. I want to make new marks nearby. It seems to be impossible. The only way I have managed to get around the problem is to save the PDF to a file and then reload it. But that only lasts for a while until it gets back into the mode in which it thinks I am trying to select some of my new marks.

I don't know what is getting it into the selection mode or how to get out once there. There are no clues in the menu. I could use the mode at times for removing marks, so I do also want to know how to get into it.

Help would be much appreciated.

Curl gives us access to the --resolv feature. Its super handy for making quick name resolution changes for single requests without modifying a hosts file. It is particularly handy when troubleshooting proxy's and load balancers.

Example curl request curl https://www.mywebsite.com --resolv "www.mywebsite.com:443:192.168.255.100"

Is there an equivalent method in firefox to do the same thing?

To be extra clear I do not want to modify the host header. That doesn't help for TLS destinations with certs and subject names etc.
