Hello all,

Lately I received a report from some colleagues that a certain feature is not working in Firefox that appears to be working on any other browser.

When drag/dropping e-mails and/or attachments from Microsoft Outlook (Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise) to a drop-field in Firefox (88.0.1 - 64-bit) nothing happens.

When using Firefox we can drag/drop files from Windows Explorer, but not from Outlook.

The same fields do work flawlessly when drag/dropping e-mails and/or attachments from Microsoft Outlook in Google Chrome, Microsoft EDGE, Opera and Safari. So Firefox is the only browser - on several OS's - that does not allow e-mails/attachments to be dropped from Microsoft Outlook. We have tested multiple users on different workstation and we have tested drop-fields from several web applications.

Surprisingly I cannot find any solution to this. The only similar cases I was able to find are from a couple of years ago but are about the other way around (so drag/dropping files FROM Firefox to another application).

At this moment I am advising my colleagues to use another browser. But we really want this to work properly with any browser of choice. Hope this community can help us out.

The update to Firefox 89.0 did not fix this problem.

Note: UAC is enabled on the workstations. Disabling does not affect anything. Tested attachments: .pdf, .docx, .html & .xlsx

I am unable to clear cache. 2.0MB of cache always remain after I go through the appropriate steps to clear cache. I have tried everything recommended by Mozilla and online. A few times the 2.0MB cleared on its own but then immediately reappeared. This problem started happening around six weeks ago. I checked the cache folder and nothing appears there but when Firefox is open it always shows 2.0MB of cache and it won't clear.

If I enter a search beginning and ending with quotation mark, ie " I get the following behaviour. If I enter

 "Hats

I see

 "Hats

in the eBay search bar. If I add a " after the 's' I lose the first " and end with

 Hats"

If I delete the contents and type a sing " the search bar is populated with

 Hats"

I'm using:

 Windows 10 (all up to date but this has been happening for a while)
 Firefox 90.0.2 (64 bit)

I don't have this issue with any other browser including Firefox on a similar Desktop I have deleted all cookies with 'ebay' in the URL

This is driving me nuts and considering ditching Firefox, at least for eBay. Any ideas what is causing this. I can assure anyone it is genuine, perhaps I should consider a youtube video of this madness?

So, first off, Firefox is my favorite browser. I love it a lot. I'm also a pretty big supporter of Free and Open-Source Software.

With that said, I was wondering when and if Firefox will fully support ICC V4 profiles and the PNG specification.

I noticed that ICC V4 is not enabled by default, but even after setting gfx.color_management.enablev4 to true and setting gfx.color_management.mode to 1, ICC V4 is still not working properly.

You can test this yourself here: https://littlecms.com/blog/2020/09/09/browser-check/

Also, I noticed that PNG images of large sizes won't display at all in Firefox, resulting in a broken image icon.

You can test this yourself here: https://www.jwz.org/blog/2018/07/png-antics/

These seem to work at least passably well in other browsers, but I don't want to use other browsers! Does anyone know if Mozilla will fix these sometime? I do know that Little CMS is open-source under the permissive MIT license, so maybe Firefox could use that to fix the ICC V4 problem, if that could help. I don't know if using the latest version of libpng will help the other problem, but I know it is under a rather permissive BSD-style license.

I'm using Firefox 90.0.2 in case anyone is wondering.

Since the latest update of Firefox (to 90.0.2) I've found that, when confronted with a login-password screen, Firefox recommends a number of login possibilities ... but not the correct one.

As an example, when I log into a newspaper account, I'm offered three emails as possible login names...but NOT the email to which the account is registered. The only password saved in Firefox for that account is the correct one. The newspaper help desk had no helpful answer.

I do not leave my computer running 24/7 and so the browser is closed regularly

I've tried removing the login/password information, re-starting the computer, and then signing in, but this did not solve the problem.

Should I roll back to an earlier version of Firefox, or do I need to leave everything running all the time forever to avoid this?

Thanks! Sarah

Only the first and the last pages had content, the rest were all blank pages. It's a long website, and possibly uses custom font. But then not all pages were printed blank.

Tried resetting printer settings and starting in safe mode. No joy.

Micro$oft Edge printed the website fine.

Whenever I go onto one specific website to listen to music, everything works fine but for some reason, when I open the same website in Private Browsing Mode to avoid getting clapped by the algorithm, it always automatically sets the volume to around 50%. I can easily get around this by just dragging the volume bar up but it has been months and it's starting to get a bit annoying.

I've tried clearing the cache, changing the default volume in about:config, disabling all extensions, clearing cookies & site data, resetting my preferences, refreshing Firefox, uninstalling Firefox, following a guide to clear Firefox's residual files, and clearing all of my computer's temporary files, but it still defaults to 50% volume in Private Browsing Mode

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated

Hello.

Up until recently, I could click a link to a locally stored Python source file (.py extension) and it would display as a plain text file in Firefox. This is what I want; e.g., it is a way that I view my notes, refer to examples, and so on.

Starting a few days ago, when I click such a link, I now get a pop-up window with the two options "Open with" or "Save file." I have tried a number of things to get back to the old behavior, including deleting the handlers.json file in my Profile folder, running a full Refresh, and creating a new profile. None of these got me back to the old behavior: displaying the .py file as plain text.

If I set the "Open with" option in that pop-up window to Firefox, I just keep getting the pop-up over and over again, while a new tab is created each time.

Note: if I look at a .py file on GitHub, there is no problem: again, the file just displays.

I suspected this behavior is connected with my having installed the latest version of Python (3.9.6) a few days ago, and I just confirmed this by updating Python on another machine. That is, on the other machine, the .py file would display as plain text until just now, after I update Python there.

So, I believe the Python installation is the cause of the problem, but, nonetheless, it seems to me that I should be able to set (or unset?) something within Firefox to make .py files open as plain text, as they used to.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

I have been using Firefox for a little bit on my computer, as I've just formatted my computer to start fresh. But for some reason, SoundCloud audio refuses to play on my browser. Audio for every other website on my browser works completely fine, but for some reason the audio for SoundCloud doesn't work. When I play audio on SoundCloud, my browser says "PLAYING" underneath the SoundCloud tab, but nothing comes through. My tab is not muted, and the audio settings on SoundCloud (the volume slider) is set to max volume. Although I suspected it at first, this doesn't have anything to do with my actual audio device, as it's working just fine and literally all other websites play audio perfectly fine.

Things I have tried:

  • Refreshing Firefox
  • Disabling all add-ons
  • Removing all add-ons
  • Clearing all data

As we all know the fullscreen mode does exactly what you'd expect, it makes Firefox cover the entire screen, including the taskbar. That's great.

However sometimes I'm running more than one window of Firefox and if only one of the windows is in fullscreen it will cover the taskbar even when I alt-tab to any of the windows that aren't in the fullscreen.

I'll provide a screenshot to show my case. And as you'll be able to see if I mouse-over links in the taskbar they're clickable, so the fullscreen window is still active through the area where taskbar should be once you're running a window that isn't in fullscreen.

That's quite annoying and gets in the way so I'm wondering is that an oversight or a bug (I hope it's not an intended feature) and is there a way to fix that in config or will I have to wait for the developers to fix this in a patch eventually, if they would even want to.

(Recently) 08/02/2021, I have noticed that when many of the pages are (re)loaded into Windows-Firefox seem to then move toward the bottom of the page. I would like to have some way too force Firefox to load the page and then move to the top of the page or/and refresh the page and move to its top.

I don't know whether this is a new HTML command that people are using to force me to read the ads rather than the article, or whether this is something that is just a curd and I'm just noticing it.

So I'd appreciate if somebody who is more familiar with newer features of HTML and or a newer features of Firefox can tell me how this occurred and then can either tell me how I can remove it or oh suggest that there be an improvement of Firefox

Thanks

This is maddening. I have a 2-frame page, one side is weather, the other side is AQI. Because the AQI web site doesn't allow frames, for a long time I just load the JPG that shows the AQI map for my area. (It has a static name.) So I load a JPG in the right-hand frame. The other day, I right-clicked and downloaded the image so I could e-mail it to a friend. Ever since then, Firefox wants to download the image. Firefox no longer shows the image in the right-hand frame. Instead I was getting the save dialog, which I set up to have it always open in Firefox, which now opens it in another screen. If I go into Settings (or wherever it is) and find "Applications" and tweak jpg, it does not give me "show in Firefox"; the closest is "preview in Firefox" but THAT only shows up in OTHER applications, not jpg. I did some searching, and found a handlers.json file, but that did not fix this maddening problem. How do I get Firefox to simply go back to showing jpg in the browser? I tried deleting some cookies, but since this goes back more than 24 hours, all Firefox lets me do is delete everything, and I do not want to do that. How do I fix this? BTW, it says I am "robv2", which maybe I am, but I am guessing I was "robv" at another time. (I could be wrong.) In any case, I am not sure, if anyone replies, how I am alerted, etc. So I guess I'll check back. (OK, I see below there's a check box for alerting me when/if someone answers.) I could attach an image after I reset to "ask," but what would be the point? I am sure anyone reading this knows what this looks like. The question is: why won't Firefox just show the jpg? This always worked the way I wanted when I used Google Chrome. If anyone wants an image, let me know.
