I use Firefox regularly with Google Meet and it worked fine but recently (a few weeks ago) it started hanging when I try to share my screen in a Google Meet session and, when I try to return to the session, Firefox simply crashes, freezes and gets irresponsive.

I am not sure, but I guess it started happening after last Firefox update.

I ran about:crashes and the crash seems not to be stored (my last crash happened in Feb/19/2021:

Hi, I use office 365 (as an example) on two computers. On one all is fine .. if I double click on an email in my outlook inbox the popup windows opens in foreground. On another computer I have (both have all firefox updates installed) popups open behind the browser - so I actually don't see that anything has happened.

I tried restartig FF without addons. I tried using another user container. I searched the net but only found tipps that were quite old.

Anyone have an idea what I can do to prevent windows from opening behind the browser?

85.0.2 (but happened before that version too).

Firefox's Picture-in-Picture mode allows you to watch recordings while riding the web. Firefox's Picture-in-Picture mode allows you to pop recordings out of their page to turn into a consistently on-top gliding window. It implies that you can at the same time peruse different pages while watching a video. Here, we're demonstrating how to empower and utilize Picture-in-Picture mode on Firefox.

What Is Picture-in-Picture Mode?

Picture-in-Picture mode is a Firefox include that has been accessible for Windows since adaptation 71, and for macOS and Linux since variant 72.

When observing most recordings, you can tap the Picture-in-Picture symbol to pop the video out of the site page. That video at that point turns into its own skimming window, which you can resize and move anyplace on your screen, and it'll generally stay on top. You can even control the video playback without expecting to explore back to the first page.

Step by step instructions to Enable Picture-in-Picture Mode

Picture-in-Picture mode is a standard Firefox highlight that is empowered naturally. Nonetheless, you can shroud the symbol that enacts it, so adhere to these directions to check its status:

  • Snap the Menu Button (three even lines).
  • Snap Options.
  • Underneath Browsing, guarantee that Enable picture-in-picture video controls is checked.

Step by step instructions to Use Picture-in-Picture Mode

  • To utilize Picture-in-Picture mode, drift over a video and snap the Picture-in-Picture symbol. It would seem that two square shapes on top of one another. This will pop the video out from the page.
  • On the other hand, you can right-tap the video to open the setting menu. From here, click Picture-in-Picture. A few sites like YouTube supersede the Firefox setting menu, so you should right-click twice to get to it (don't right-tap on a menu thing or it will not work)
  • You can likewise press Ctrl + Shift + ] and Firefox will dispatch the most significant video on the page into Picture-in-Picture.
  • There are a few recordings that Picture-in-Picture mode isn't accessible for. This incorporates those without a sound track and those that are excessively little or short. For instance, loads of recordings on Twitter fall into this class.
  • When utilizing Picture-in-Picture mode, you can snap and delay the video to move it anyplace on your screen. Additionally, snap and drag the sides of the video to resize it. To go full screen, double tap the video.
  • Float over the video, and you will see three symbols. The upper right X symbol stops and shuts the Picture-in-Picture video. Then again, the Picture-in-Picture symbol will keep the video playing and return you to the first website page.

Bonjour,

lorsque je cherche à me connecter sur le LCL par Fiefox sur mon PC, la page m'est (presque) systématiquement signalée comme contrefaite, et je suis absolument persuadé que ce signalement est erroné

les banques sont des escrocs, nous sommes peut-être d'accord mais des escrocs légaux et autorisés, et je suis bien gêné par ce signalement.

I am just not able to access sites related to CFA Institute, rest I am able to do. If I try to browse any of the site related to that, I am getting: 'Server Not Found", as window heading and below the description looks like this:

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at cfasocietyindia.org.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

I have tried every possible outcome, but not able to solve this. Hence if anyone can help on this, that would be great. Attaching a screenshot for a better refrence

Hello,

I'm in a bit of a trouble here, as I got recently and quite suddenly put aside from my job, and with that, lost access to my professional e-mail adress and to my professional computer. Problem is I had a Firefox account linked to my professional e-mail adress, and with this "work from home" situation I made the mistake to mix things up a little and store some personal passwords, on my pro computer. I changed most of my passwords since then, but still, I'd prefer if even the old ones weren't in the nature... As I can't log into my pro inbox anymore to validate the 2 steps connexion to firefox sync, I can't access my Firefox account from any other computer to remotely delete all these sensitive informations.

As this account mainly stores work related bookmarks and passwords, I don't particularly plan on claiming it back, as it would be of no use to me now. Instead, I'd prefer to see this account purely deleted, and to be able to move on with a clean slate.

I would like to know if there is a way, some procedure or anything, for the Mozilla teams to manualy delete an account and all it contains ?

Thank you in advance.
