Hi! I finally decided to switch to Firefox :) So far it's great, yet there are a few things that are different from Chrome (that I've used for more than 10 years). Some of the things I found already, but there are others that are obscure, and I would appreciate your help in finding them!

1. When typing something in the search bar and clicking the middle mouse button to open it in a new tab, it auto switches to that tab. I found settings for auto-switching from bookmarks and a few other places, but this one still eludes me.

2. Reopen closed tab. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it does not open the last tab that I've closed (only some random one?). I have no idea how it should work, but on Chrome it just opens the last closed tab. Is it possible to change this behavior to work the same way?

3. I have multiple monitors (probably like most people nowadays). When I want to move a tab to another monitor, so it makes a new window it's super weird. Sometimes when I move it over another programs window it just doesn't work, sometimes if I move too quickly it also doesn't work. Any way to fix this?

Other than that I've enjoyed my stay so far :)

On FF 120.0.1 and Tab Reloader 0.6.1

I have FF set up with 7 tabs as home page, 6 of the tabs have tab reloader set to reload ever 1 hour. This has worked fine for years, the tab reload for the 6 tabs were saved after restarting FF. I didn't have to go back and tell tab reloader to reload after restarting FF. Maybe once and a while one tab didn't get the reload saved on a restart, usually always the same one.

Now when I restart FF none of the tabs have saved the setting to reload every 1 hour.

This has been going on for the last 2 releases of FF updates and there hasn't been any updates for tab reloader. Does anyone know why this is happening, I haven't changed anything in settings. I did uncheck hardware acceleration to see if that would fix another issue, but tabs weren't reloading after restart prior to that change on hardware accelation.

When scrolling the print edition of the Wall Street Journal on an iPad (8th gen)the minutest flick of thumb up will return the view to page one. Doesn’t matter which page, it always goes back to page one. Very annoying and doesn’t happen when I’m using Safari nor when viewing other web sites so have to surmise it’s a glitch, setting or specific to the WSJ.

In my Firefox settings I have selected "check for updates but let [me] choose to install them" but Firefox automatically installs updates while I'm using it and immediately requires me to restart the browser. All navigation thereafter returns a page saying I have to restart Firefox to continue.

It's incredibly annoying to have to then sign in to all half dozen or more sites that I was already signed in to. I'm going to have to abandon Firefox if this continues.

Is it a security setting my employer configured? I think I have the same problem at home.

Read about using the Project Fission settings in about:config and only needed to change the gfx.webrender.all to True but I don't see the 'F' when hovering over the current tab to prove it's working.

Dubious as to whether this 'built-in' sandbox is as robust as Sandboxie.

Appreciate any feedback.


Thank you,

Permanent Built-in Plugins and/or Extensions

What would it take for Mozilla to offer a version of Firefox without permanently built-in plugins and/or extensions, and just offer them by selection upon installation, or offer a a registry editor program to add and/or remove them, or simply a paid-for version without them? A paid for browser that could be configured the way a person wants it would be worth the cost of such a browser.

examples of plugins and/or extensions desired to be permanently removed:

Amazon.com Bing DuckDuckGo eBay Firefox Screenshots Form Autofill Google Wikipedia

Refreshing does not work. Disabling does not work as they are enabled after another update, upgrade or by accessing your Firefox account.


Many years ago, M$ was sued for making Internet Explorer an integral part of the operating system yet is being allowed to do the same with Edge today. Just as back then, the browser cannot be permanently uninstalled from Windows, unlike with a Linux OS. Example: Mint will work perfect without the automatically installed Firefox browser should a user want to have a different browser. However, since undesired plugins and/or extensions can be permanently removed, there is no need to uninstall and remove Firefox.

Unfortunately, although I love the Vivaldi browser (which is built from Google's chromium architecture, just like chrome and many others) for any M$ or Linux OS, there are two features Firefox offers still unavailable with Vivaldi at this time. Therefore, Firefox remains my backup browser and for when I would like to use those two features unavailable with Vivaldi. However, Firefox would become the default browser not just for me, but an unknown huge number of users if permanently built-in plugins and/or extensions could be permanently disabled and/or removed because users want less intrusion and thus more security.

Firefox is a great browser. However, not being able to permanently remove permanently built-in plugins and/or extensions is more than a nuisance. Reason: If the built-in plugins and/or extensions can be re-enabled after an update, upgrade, or accessing your Firefox account, then there must be some type of script, sub-routine, program or AI detecting the permanently built-in plugins and/or extensions that have been disabled. That by definition is spying.

What is needed is a method to permanently remove permanent built-in plugins and/or extensions, or at least prevent the disabled built-in plugins and/or extensions from being enabled again.

Perhaps Amazon.com, Bing, DuckDuckGo, eBay and Google and Wikipedia are paying $$$ to be embedded within Firefox which may be needed by Mozilla for the ongoing development of updates and upgrades. If so, a paid-for browser might eliminate the need for Bing, DuckDuckGo, eBay and Google and Wikipedia to be included.

Thoughts and/or discussions?

Thanx!

Hi, i'm a new firefox user and I've looked online for the last hour looking for a fix, but nothing. I have 2 monitors and when I click from one to the other or alt + tab, all my tabs become darkened, from white to having faded / being much darker, I'd want to not have that, is there a way?


Example of not darked darkened / faded tabs / darkened:

The netflix, giazo, imdb and youtube tab is not darkened. (not alt tabbed or clicked on second monitor). The other one is darkened, alt tabbed, clicked on second monitor.

I also posted on reddit, since i can't add more pictures, for better understanding, I will share here. Thank you.

Hello, I use ubuntu on my M$ surface go2 tablet, and I wonder, if it's possible to enable video touch control (HTML5 player) on video sites other than youtube, like I have in android or chromeOS. On Android this option works always. On ChromeOS doesn't work in privacy mode (no idea why, there is no addons or extensions, just pure firefox.

I know ther is option in PiP option, but is it possible to use just double tap on screen instead of small buttons? (now double tap turns on and off full screen).

So, I had three windows open in private mode, then the (stupid) software decides to crash (or rather, restart automatically for an update) and I lose all those tabs from those windows (ALTHOUGH NOT MY CHOICE, OR FAULT) then several search results say install PrivateBrowsingHistoryRecovery add on, however the links go nowhere. Surely Mos FuryInducingF_x don't prevent the installation of an add on that might actually make their software better, useful?

Appreciate any advice.
