i've tried toggling media.hardwaremediakeys off and pressing the media keys to no avail, they don't seem to have any effect when it's enabled or disabled. the keys work on other applications like VLC media player, though! and I can see that the media is being detected from firefox, too, as it appears in media player widgets i have on my plasma desktop. it seems to be only the physical keys that aren't working, because i can press buttons on the widgets to control media playing in firefox.

Lately for the last 3ish days my YouTube connection speed on Firefox and only Firefox has been terribly slow. So slow that it can't even watch normal HD content. But not always, sometimes it does work at normal internet speeds which is so weird. I have around 500 Mbps download speed internet so I know it's not the issue. The picture with the slow download speed is on Firefox and the fast/normal download speed is on Chrome. Sometimes in a private window Firefox runs at normal speed but not always, I don't think it's an extension issue.

I tried to log in to a website that requires access to my location. I'm using Firefox 114.02 on an iMac running Monterey 12.6.7. I was able to get in to Firefox's Location settings and now have the website listed with "Allow" noted. This was not enough, and for some time I didn't understand why. Then I discovered the Mac's System Preferences' Security and Privacy section, where Location Services are one category under Privacy. Selecting Location Services brings up a list of apps that are allowed to provide location information. For some reason, other browsers are on the list and can be turned on or off, but Firefox is not on the list of apps that can be selected as permitted. Am I missing something here? I can't find any way to add apps to the list so that they can actually be selected. Any advice?

On a new website or after clearing the cache and cookies and upon opening a page I will often get a pop-up with cookie usage choices, e.g. "strictly necessary", etc. However, the pop-up disappears before I have a chance to click on any choice or even finish reading the first line. I'm not sure what settings I need to change to allow me to make a choice on the pop-up. Please advise. Thanks.

On Google Docs, the very useful shortcut "Alt+/" for executing menu actions by name exists, similar M-x in Emacs or Ctrl+Shift+A in PyCharm or Ctrl+Shift+P in VS Code.

On a German keyboard, there is no "/" key. In Chrome the hotkey "Alt+#" works instead. In Firefox, it does not.

This hotkey is particularly important, because it gives quick access to menu actions, that have no hotkey assigned, or for which the hotkey does not work on the current layout.

Is there something I can do to make it work?

Note. Based on what I know, I cannot tell if this is an issue with Firefox not sending the Alt+# key correctly, a special feature of Chrome that isn't present in Firefox, or a cross-browser compatibility issue of Google Docs, that should be blamed on Google Docs and not Firefox.

Firefox 114.0.2 (64-bit), running on Open Suse 15.3, 64 bit.

Hello, I wanted to restore Firefox to start clean. I wanted anyway to reinstall my (few) extensions, all of which are safe and well known. When I do that, though, their icons don't show up in the toolbar. When I open the "customize toolbar" setting, extension icons aren't there. So there's no way to add them to toolbar.

I tried all possible methods: - "Restore Firefox" and resync my account (extensions are reinstalled but icons not shown in toolbar / customize toolbar) - "Restore Firefox", not syncing, and manually installing extensions (icons still not shown in toolbar / customize toolbar) - Uninstall Firefox, delete everything in Profiles folder, reinstall Firefox. Same behavior.

So, it seems it's something not related to a broken profile, since a fresh profile, with no syncing, does not fix the issue.

Any clue of what I could try? Thanks!

PROBLEM ACCESSING MY GMAIL VIA FIREFOX

My wife and I both have (separate) Gmail accounts – we access them on Win 10 computers, using Firefox. I have set up two Firefox “buttons” (one for each Gmail address), both of which worked perfectly – until today!

Now, when I click on EITHER of the two Gmail “buttons” I get ONLY my wife’s email! I CAN access my own Gmail with either my Android phone OR using the Edge browser however!

So far as I can see, nothing has changed with the two URLs (a different one for each button) – I’ve tried setting up a ‘new’ button from scratch and just using 'my' URL in the search bar but both still give the same result – my wife’s email account!

HELP!!

I am using Firefox 114.0.2 address bar only, no search bar. I do not remember when it was happened, but today when I want to copy and paste page address I found out that address bar did not display the page address as previous version, just display the words I searched as a search bar (if the search bar is enabled, and typed in search bar then push enter, address bar will display address of search result page, and search bar will keep displaying the words in it). I attached my screenshot below. Using another tab and "switch to tab" feature by Firefox, I found out the page address. In my screenshot, I typed "test" and using Google to search (I also tried Bing, Wikipedia and more and all of them have the same problem with their owned link) and the page address should be "https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=test" but even I paste this link into the address bar, it will only display "test" like the pic. I think it is a trim feature but I do not which preference I should edit in about:config. I have set "browser.urlbar.trimURLs" to false for displaying http and www, but it is not work this time.

I recently noticed that in the settings it says "Your browser is being managed by your organisation". The certificate "ImportEnterpriseRoots" seems to be affected. I have seen guides saying to delete a registry key but I do not have a Mozilla folder in my policies.

It is worth noting I do run two anti virus software. Kaspersky total security and gridinsoft anti malware. Just wondering if there is a way to permanently remove this or if its just a side affect of my anti virus software.

Thanks

After the Firefox update to 114.0.2 on my WIndows 10 desktop computer, the display of the Google Voice website became all garbled and vertical scrolling stopped working, making it impossible to read new next messages. My laptop, which has been turned off and has not taken the update, is still running the previous version and does not have the problem. I'm wondering if others have had the same issue.

When using Noto Sans Egyptian Hieroglyphics font and writing-mode: vertical-lr; the characters appear shifted up by ~10%, thus appearing partially outside their parent element. All hieroglyphics do this (here using (U+13000)), but only with Noto font.

Tested on versions 114.0.2 and 79.0esr, on different machines, new installs, old installs, even the mobile version. Chromium-based browsers don't have the issue. Images show character inside a div (with borders), the same character highlighted, and Chrome screenshot for comparison. TO REPRODUCE just import and set Noto Sans Egyptian Hieroglyphics and writing-mode: vertical-lr/vertical-rl/tb/tb-rl. A bordered div around the characters might be useful.

Hi!

So I'm currently using Google Authentication for my Firefox 2fa codes. However, that app is stuck offline and there is no way to get it to connect back online. I'm thinking of using another app to generate the Firefox codes. However, if I do so, by scanning the Firefox generated QR code to set up the code in the app, will this result in;

1. Having to generate a new backup code for Firefox (recovery key) 2. Voiding the generated keys on the other app I am using.

Thank you!

Hello and thank you all in advance for giving your time to help us!

I run Firefox 114.0.1 on an Apple Mac Mini running Monterey 12.6.6.

Under the "Other Bookmarks" heading in the Library, I keep quite a lot of folders dividing my bookmarks into the various subjects they relate to and some of those folders are subdivided into subfolders.

One of my "simple" folders is called "PENDING" where i store stuff to look at when I have time. Last week I noticed that folder was missing! There's no other explanation than I stupidly deleted it without knowing, and it contained a lot of stuff!

I read up on restoring bookmarks from backup but

a) I only need this one folder and b) I don't want to overwrite all the bookmarks I've added in the past weeks.

Even if I could get the bookmarks from that one folder in a plain text file that I could read, I've no problem doing a bit of work, pasting each one into Google and re-acquiring it as a bookmark.

Any advice will be deeply appreciated!

Many thanks and very kind wishes,

Jim

Just updated to Firefox 114 from version 113 on Fedora 37 and spotted difference in the font rendering using the old profile.

On Firefox 114, the fonts are larger. I could not make it the same as in Firefox 113, despite all the configuration in the profile is the same. Downgrading to Firefox 113 return the previous font size/rendering.

However, in Firefox 114 there's a font difference even between my old profile and fresh new profile. The font configuration in the settings is exactly the same between these two profiles (default profile, Latin and Cyrillic — the same font families, sizes, checkboxes, i've even checked about:config options searching by "font" — all the same).

Check the screenshots.
