I've been trying to get a video to play for over a day now, drm-controlled content is checked but firefox won't install the widevine plugin, it just keeps saying that it will install shortly. I even deleted the cache in hopes to fix the problem, but it did nothing. What can I do to fix this? Also, and I don't know if this is a related problem, some websites just don't show up. It will say they are loaded but all I get is a blank screen (dailymotion and instagram so far).

Why is there not a simple means to take a link and pin it as a tile on my home page? I've expanded the number of rows displayed which as an odd history of my browsing, yet the latest links I've visited are not there - meaning the link to the location I would like to pin. Seriously, the entries in the rows (other than previously pinned links) is a hodgepodge. It might be useful if there was some evident logic to the items included. It is disappointing the number of times this question has been posed and the "answer" is to display more rows. Similarly disappointing - an old knowledge base article that says to click the 3 dot icon next to address bar for Firefox on android - would have been handy had such a control appeared in the latest version of Firefox I'm running on my Mac.

Is there a way to remove recent bookmarks from the "hamburger menu" (says "Open Application Menu" on hovering)? The bookmarks there seem to only show the most recent bookmarks added and there's no way to organize those or delete them without also deleting the bookmarks from the main bookmarks menu, which can be organized. There should be a way to not show bookmarks that are private bookmarks just because they've recently been added. I couldn't find an answer to this anywhere in support -- though I might not have been searching the right terms. Any and all help would be much appreciated. (Also, apologies if I put this in the wrong category. Wasn't sure what to use.) Thanks!

Many file types are no longer listed under Settings > Applications>Content Type at about:preferences#general. I used to be able to click on a file in an email like a Word or Excel document, and it would come up on my screen. Now Firefox asks me to Save them. I don't want to automatically save files without first looking at them. How can I get those file types in the Application list again?

I have attached a pic of the file types I have left to chose from. There used to be a lot more. How can I get back all the missing choices I have had there for years?

What frame rate settings are available, and where are they documented?

I use layout.frame_rate 1 to block animation, and to replace painful partial scrolling with clean jumps. I can't use an intermediate frame rate, such as 3-30 fps, due to the seizure risks, or a high frame rate, such as 60 fps, due to migraines when hit by "smooth" animation, "ease in-out" animation, zooming animation, parallax animation, partial scrolling with one part of the window sliding alongside another, etc.

about:config involves some other frame-rate and frame_rate settings;

gfx.display.frame-rate-divisor starts at 1

layers.offmainthreadcomposition.frame-rate starts at -1

layout.expose_high_rate_mode_from_refreshdriver starts at true

layout.frame_rate starts at 0, which defaults to monitor settings; I've reset it to 1 (1 frame per second).

layout.throttled_frame_rate starts at 1

What are these and what do they do? I've tried looking them up, and see a bunch of posts about browser diagnostics, or *increasing* frame rates, or the like.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I'm running 101.0.1 and spell check no longer works on any mail app like Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, BT Mail. If I use Chrome or Edge then spell check works correctly. This is despite my Firefox Settings being as below.....

Language Choose the languages used to display menus, messages, and notifications from Firefox. ENGLISH GB Set Alternatives… ENGLISH GB Choose your preferred language for displaying pages. Choose… ENGLISH (United Kingdom) (en-gb) Check your spelling as you type = Tick (Yes)

Could you please advise a fix?

Kind regards,

Neil.

P.S. If I use Chrome or Edge then spell check works correctly.

Firefox 103 screws with website zooming if you use the "Make text bigger" accessibility setting in Windows. 150% for example now zooms in a lot more with the accessibility setting in Windows set to 120%.

How do I undo this change so that 150% is 150% and not bigger than 150%? I had all my frequented websites set up how I liked it and now this comes along and messes it all up >:V at the moment it seems like 120% Firefox + 120% Accessibility is similar to what 150% in Firefox was like but it's not exactly the same. I've now gotta go futz with zoom levels for each web page I frequent again to find what looks most comfortable for each one.

Also this change greatly modifies consistency when it comes to the granularity of zooming. For example, what is 100% zoom when Accessibility is set to 120% so that I can avoid filtered scaling being applied to pictures? Why is the in-browser percentage indication not accurate with the level of zooming actually being applied?

The zoom level I choose is no longer the zoom level applied, there is now a multiplier in effect. So 50% isn't 50% anymore, 60% isn't 60% anymore, 70% isn't 70% anymore, 80% isn't 80% anymore, 90% isn't 90% anymore, 100% isn't 100% anymore, 110% isn't 110% anymore, 120% isn't 120% anymore, 130% isn't 130% anymore, 140% isn't 140% anymore etc.

A website that looked good at 133% can no longer be viewed at 133% if the Accessibility setting isn't also 133%.

Not a fan of whoever decided to implement this seemingly without a way to turn it off.

Hi, I have been using an extension that helps with my school's website for years and now for some reason it has been taken off the firefox store. It's still up on chrome and edge and all of the Dev's other add-ons are still up, its only this one on firefox. I emailed the dev and he sent me the zip file and I've been having to install it as a temporary add-on with the .json file every time i open firefox and its getting really annoying after a year of doing this. How can I just install it permenantly?

I'm using Firefox 112 on Windows 10. The toolbar contains icons for several extensions that I don't want to see. I click on the >> menu and then Customize Toolbar. That opens the Overflow Menu. It says, "Drag and drop items here to keep them within reach but out of your toolbar." I try to drag one of those extension icons onto the Overflow Menu. It won't go. The dragged icon picks up a circle with a line through it, indicating that this is not allowed or not working.

How can I use the Overflow Menu as advertised, to remove unwanted extension icons from the toolbar? Or is there a good workaround?

OS - Ubuntu22 Firefox - Default firefox on ubuntu22 (Mozilla Firefox 103.0.1)

Use case - 1. Custom profile folder (named prof1) contains pref.js and chrome folder with custom css file. 2. prof1 is created in -> "/customData/profiles/prof1" 3. The folder "/customData" has full rwx permissions and is owned by $USER (not by root)

Output -> 1. When launching firefox mentioning the profile -> "$ firefox --profile /customData/profiles/prof1"

The browser does not load, but there is an error box saying Profile Missing Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.


Questions -> 1. Is it possible to load firefox profile from root directory ? 2. If custom profile folder is created in "/home", then it is launching and working perfectly. How is this possible when the permissions and owner is same as the one in "/customData"

Hello, in past versions of Firefox, I was able to follow the steps on this page to set a custom HTML file on my PC as my home page for new tabs: https://peterries.net/blog/firefox-ubuntu-local-file/

I have Firefox 107.0.1 now and it's not happening. When I open the browser from scratch, I see my custom home page file. But when I open a new tab, I just see a blank screen. If I then click the Home icon on the toolbar, I do see my custom HTML page, but I don't want to have to click that button for each new tab.

Right now, in my settings, I have the URL to the page set as the custom URL for the HTML fiile, like this:

file:///home/peter/Documents/homepage/peter-home-homepage.html

That works. And I also have followed the steps on that blog post to customize my /usr/lib/firefox/autoconfig.cfg and my ../firefox/defalults/pref/autoconfig.js files. That's no longer working.

Did something in a recent version change? Is this no longer supported? Thanks for any ideas!
