Hi! I just moved over to Firefox from a different browser, and there this minor thing that I noticed. Whenever I put a video on full screen, it looks like it alters the aspect ratio of my screen? Like there are black bars at the left and right of my screen instead of it filled all the way. Its very minor but it bugs me every time. Is there a way to fix this or not? Thank you!

I am using a Macbook Air M2 btw.

Firefox beta release: 116.0b6 (64-bit)

On sites such as BBC.com, Youtube.com and Facebook.com I am not getting the normal cookie consent pop-up option which used to automatically show on opening the sites. Other sites are still showing the cookie consent option pop-ups. This means I cannot select if I wish to accept or reject cookies on several sites that used to allow me the option.

In checking about:config, the cookiebanners.service.mode is set to 1, which I believe this the correct setting for enabling the cookies consent pop-up option.

Is there any fix for the cookie consent pop-up not working on certain sites within the EU? I am not using a VPN or pop-up blocker. Tracking protection is set to Standard, cookies and site data are always deleted on closing Firefox and "Do Not Track” signal is set to always. Deleting all installed FF extensions has no effect either.

In other browsers on the same PC, Chrome and Edge, the cookie consent option does still work as it should on the sites mentioned. In Firefox it doesn't.

This is only happening on one PC. My latop has the same FF beta build installed and is not showing this behaviour, it still automatically shows the cookie consent pop-ups when visiting sites such as BBC.com, Youtube.com and Facebook.com.

I just upgraded my Ubuntu 18.04 to 20.04 and found that Firefox (which was working perfectly before), does not work properly. Graphics (eg. profile pics on various websites) are not displayed, buttons of websites are often missing, some websites are displayed in a weird "zoomed out" way.

With Google Chrome, I don't have these issues so it does not seem to be a Linux thing...

I already tried reinstalling Firefox, but to no avail...

Help is appreciated as I would not want to migrate away from Firefox which has worked well for me for years...

Regards!

Since a few days, it is not possible to copy-and-paste any external text or content into the text field of WhatApp Web on Firefox. It works fine on Chrome. Also text manually copied from a previous WA message can be pasted.

We tried on other PCs with Firefox and Chrome, same situation. So it seems to be a problem of Firefox latest version.

Logins appear on log-in pages as soon as I type anything in the user box. I have not told Firefox to save any logins or passwords, I do not want it to do that. But on the "saved logins" page after going to the Passwords item on the main menu (three lines) it says No Logins Are Found. None. How do I make sure none are saved, since obviously some are being saved somewhere? And how can I get rid of the ones that appear, so must be saved somewhere? I use Windows 10, and Firefox with the latest updates as of August 2, 2023. Norton 360 is installed. Thank you for help with this.

Dear Firefox support,

I am writing to inquiry about bookmarks. I have hundreds of bookmarks, if not thousands with many folders, which I have saved over the last decade. I have always synced my account and it should all be there upon downloading a new firefox on my new computer. However, the HTML file that it is asking me to upload from is not a file I am able to find in by backups, time machine, or anywhere else. It is also not in my account after I sign in. I have spent nearly 10 hours trying to figure this out. I have read all your articles and went through the steps of about:profiles. ALL my bookmarks should have been synced and saved. I have firefox in my Time-machine backup also. But none of the library files populates the bookmarks.

It would be a huge harm to my research career if I am unable to restore my bookmarks. I have trusted and used Firefox for a long time. Please assist me in obtaining these bookmarks in my browser.

Best,

I have windows 7. On August 1 Firefox automatically uploaded version 116. Now my computer is running very slowly, and is taking a long time to load pages on the internet when I browse the web. I just learned searching the web (I never go any notification from Firefox) that version 115 was going to be the last version for windows 7, so how did I get version 116 automatically loaded onto my computer? How do I go back to version 115 which was working great? I right clicked on the Firefox icon on my desktop and clicked restore previous version and it states there is no previous version there. How do I go back to version 115.

hello! i'm looking for a way to adjust the settings, if there are any, to copy and paste PNG images with firefox and keep their transparency intact -- rather than the solid black it has now. as i understand it there's been similar issues as of 8 months ago, but i'm unsure if anything else has changed in that time.

i'm not a full-on graphic designer or anything but i do use this fairly often as an artist to look at references and such, and as someone who's recently switched to firefox from chrome (which does support this feature) i'd like to know if it's as easy as clicking something in a menu or if that's not an option altogether. thank you in advance to anyone willing to help!

Hello everyone,

I've been using Firefox for quite some time and I always keep a bunch of windows open throughout a few workspaces on my laptop. However, this takes up a lot of resources and looks very messy. So, I've been thinking of writing a script/extension to simply store all the open links in a window to a named list that I can, then, come back to when I need and reopen. That way, I could possibly have different lists, separated by topic and stored in a single place.

I'm sorry if there is an obvious solution for this, I saw a couple of similar questions have been asked before, but none that I could use as reference.

Thank you for your time, have a nice week!

Hi Firefox Support,

I was directed to contact you by Metamask Support. I'm experiencing a problem connecting to Metamask from Firefox, though it connects without any issues in Chrome. Based on this, Metamask Support believes the issue may be related to Firefox.

Here's what I've done to troubleshoot so far:

Cleared cache data in Firefox. Verified that I'm using the latest version of Metamask (34.0). Encountered an error when trying to switch networks with the message "unable to connect to Polygon." Confirmed that no other wallets are causing conflicts. I've attached some screenshots for your reference.

Given that I can connect to Metamask in Chrome and have already cleared data in Firefox and ensured I'm using the latest version of Metamask, Metamask Support suggested the problem might lie with Firefox.

Could you please help?

Thank you.

West Virginia has a website to download old death certificates, but they wont load. There's nothing but a blank page. I'm not positive that it's a Firefox problem, as a friend of mine who uses IE cant load them either, however, she CAN load them on her Tablet. As a historian, I really need to get these records for my research, so I was wondering if someone could go to the site and see of the records appear for them to be downloaded. This is a direct link to one of the records:
