JavaScript file uses command ```console.log()``` for showing values and outputs they into console. Next to the displayed result, there is a link to the place where the function was called (the source). I need to copy the displayed result, but when I select text in the console, these links get there.

How do I disable these links so that they are not displayed when data is output?

Sirs;

Running Kubuntu. and seeing these 2 problems:

 1.) Firefox has real problems.  when you do a "reboot now" or "shutdown now" and after the restart all previously open pages come back, but are all blank white screens.  Running "pkill firefox" several times finally clears the issue, but it may take 2-11 times of running it. Never consistent,
 2.) Not sure if this is a FF issue or a Google issue, but when I go to login to a Google account (over 10 active) the login choice screen appears, mouse click selects, but neither it nor "enter" will actually open any account.

If the 2nd is not FF related will try to submit to Google, but find it sometimes impossible to submit to Google!

Cheers!

I do not have the time to figure out the new way to put tabs on bottom every time you "downgrade" Firefox. I am sure many thousands are not "downgrading" for the same reason. If you want us to continue to utilize your product, please be user friendly. If it is too much trouble to put in the option, put the tabs on the bottom all the time and let those who want them on top (both of them) figure out how to do it.

I am trying to build firefox version 68.0 from source using the following options: ```

  1. Set up the config options

export MOZCONFIG=`pwd`/mozconfig cat > mozconfig << EOF mk_add_options MOZ_MAKE_FLAGS="-j4"

  1. If you have installed dbus-glib, comment out this line:
  2. ac_add_options --disable-dbus
  1. If you have installed dbus-glib, and you have installed (or will install)
  2. wireless-tools, and you wish to use geolocation web services, comment out
  3. this line

ac_add_options --disable-necko-wifi

  1. API Keys for geolocation APIs - necko-wifi (above) is required for MLS
  2. Uncomment the following line if you wish to use Mozilla Location Service
  3. ac_add_options --with-mozilla-api-keyfile=$PWD/mozilla-key
  1. Uncomment the following line if you wish to use Google's geolocaton API
  2. (needed for use with saved maps with Google Maps)
  3. ac_add_options --with-google-api-keyfile=$PWD/google-key
  1. Uncomment this line if you have installed startup-notification:
  2. ac_add_options --enable-startup-notification
  1. Uncomment the following option if you have not installed PulseAudio

ac_add_options --disable-pulseaudio

  1. and uncomment this if you installed alsa-lib instead of PulseAudio

ac_add_options --enable-alsa

  1. If you have installed GConf, comment out this line

ac_add_options --disable-gconf

  1. The BLFS editors recommend not changing anything below this line:

ac_add_options --prefix=/scratch/local/firefox-68.0 ac_add_options --enable-application=browser

ac_add_options --disable-crashreporter ac_add_options --disable-updater

  1. enabling the tests will use a lot more space and significantly
  2. increase the build time, for no obvious benefit.

ac_add_options --disable-tests

  1. Optimization for size is broken with gcc7 and later

ac_add_options --enable-optimize="-O2"

ac_add_options --enable-official-branding

  1. From firefox-61 system cairo is not supported

ac_add_options --enable-system-ffi ac_add_options --enable-system-pixman

  1. From firefox-62 --with-pthreads is not recognized

ac_add_options --with-system-bz2

  1. ac_add_options --with-system-jpeg
  2. ac_add_options --with-system-png

How do I tell the build system to exclude looking into /usr/lib at all?

I have a (temporary?) visual impairment and need large fonts. If I increase the font size beyond 24dpi, it breaks the layout of most pages. Zoom doesn't affect page layout, but I have to hit the key a bunch of times for every new tab.

Is there a way to save your zoom level?

Before someone points to zoom.minPercent and zoom.maxPercent, (contrary to several articles on the web) they do not save your zoom level. I still don't understand what browser.zoom.siteSpecific does, but it doesn't help either.

TIA, Dan

i see mozilla has removed the option to turn off notifications, and i'm irate at the direction mozilla is taking with this.

case in point, i updated recently and some idgit at mozilla decided "hey, let's completely change the control panel, look, all settings, and everything else!..."

i am one step from deleting firefox from all my devices...I'VE HAD IT

I have been playing poker on this site... https://www.youdagames.com/en/online-games/governor-of-poker-3-free/

As of yesterday, June 3rd, the game simply will not load. Already tried clearing the cache, no good. Upgraded flash, nope. They suggested another browser. I have opera so tried, and it works just fine. I don't use opera. Don't really want to either. One browser is fine.

They finally admitted they just did a game upgrade and suddenly now firefox won't work? Sounds to me like this browser has an issue, not their game. Since it works on another browser.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I'm on version 64 and please DO NOT tell me to upgrade. The next version will AUTO upgrade without my knowledge or permission. VERY BAD AND STUPID IDEA TO FORCE THINGS ONTO PEOPLE! Let ME decide when, why, and IF I need an upgrade. NOT YOU! Hoping when you come out with the next version you LISTEN TO PEOPLE and stop forcing upgrades. Bad enough I have to click "not now" every damn time I launch this thing. STOP IT!!!! This has been said by MANY PEOPLE too. LISTEN! STOP IT! So an upgrade isn't happening. If I have to I'll simply switch to opera. Really don't want to do that.

Hoping you can figure out why this simple game site suddenly stopped loading.

I will forward this post to the support person I've been talking with. MAYBE you two can get together and figure out what went glitchy? (I have been reading many similar complaints while searching your very confusing maze of a site trying to find where to post this. So it seems you have problems on many fronts with sites not functioning.)
