On Linux I observe that firefox always create the ~/.mozilla directory. In spite of putting the config inside ~/.config/mozilla and in spite of the ~/.cache/mozilla directory exists.

Is there a reason (or a problem in my system) why mozilla is not using the XDG_CONFIG_HOME ?

I have bought a new Lenovo IdeaPad Flex and use it in tablet mode and when I try to search something in YouTube for example the on screen keyboard pops up for a second or two and then vanishes. But when I try using ms Edge it works just fine. Can you please fix it?

I'm running the version 88.0 (64-bit) of Mozilla-Firefox.

I received an update to Firefox I believe it was either on 4/28/2021 or 4/29/2021. I always use Shopify to print out labels to my CX418 label printer. It would open up in a new window and I would just choose the printer and print. Since the update it just hangs and states not responding. I am very frustrated. I am a retailer and I need to be able to print my labels.

Hi.

Often, "HTTPS Everywhere" blocks links to sites because the real URL is embedded in another (probably tracking) URL, and that URL points to a site that doesn't support HTTPS.

I have both ClearURLs and "HTTPS Everywhere" installed, and I hypothesize that if "ClearURLs" could remove strip the surrounding tracking URL from the embedded real URL, most real sites would work without complaint.

Can I somehow tell Firefox to apply "ClearURLs" before "HTTPS Everywhere", so that "HTTPS Everywhere" operates on the sanitized real address? (Or am I interpreting the situation wrongly?)

Thanks for your help.

Warmly, Pete

Hey, until now I was able to connect to all Internet sites such as YouTube, Gmail, etc. via the Firefox start page, but recently I can only connect to a certain website (social platform, not FB) via a private window. I haven't changed a setting, it still worked the day before.

What could be the problem?

I don't have very much idea, please answer in detail and simply, thank you.

Netflix keeps crashing the minute I open it on Firefox due to the Widevine plugin. This has been happening ever since Widevine's latest update about a week ago. I've since learned that their latest update doesn't support MAC OS X 10.9.5, which is what I have. The recommendation on this forum was to install an older version of Widevine. I've looked everywhere and I haven't been able to find out how to do that or where to even find an older version. Widevine's website is not helpful.

Hoping you can help!

When I open firefox there is a blank page, which is normal. However, when I analyse the network traffic with wireshark I notice there are automatic connections to several websites. Including reddit.com, twitter.com, facebook.com, youtube.com, wikipedia.org, example.org, ipv4only.arpa and also to some mozilla domains. Is this normal behavior or should I be worried ? Also, is there a way to disable this if this is normal behavior ?

Hello

Recently I chaged firefox font color and (font)background color; font color near white, (font)background color near black. From that time Youtube in_screen control button's (play/pause/sound/setting/full screen) background color changed to near white (default translucent) so the buttons became barely distinguishable.

I changed font/background color to the original, installed themes and addons but failed to set the buttons back to the original color.

Slidebar color changed to (font)background color.

I have eyes problem and some internet sites don't allow the dark mode, So I had to try browser color code editing for my eyes.

Could someone please tell me how to reverse the change or change the button's background color translucent?

I don't want to switch my browser to Chrome. I do want to upload music files to u tube music for my library there. Process is to open the u tube music library file and click on uploads and drag files from windows onto the page and it will upload. My problem is when I do this, the file I drag over shows a red circle with a line through it and will not upload to u tube music. It is the correct file type MP3. Is there a setting within firefox that I can change that could be preventing me from doing this? thanks. brian

Perchè su Mozilla Firefox non posso personalizzare tutta la pagina iniziale con uno sfondo immagine dal mio archivio personale? Posso saperlo? Non è possibile che l'intera pagina iniziale rimanga vuota e bianca senza nessuna immagine e come sfondo voi utilizzate solo la parte in alto e con i temi stabiliti solo da voi. Non vi sentite degli ipocriti? Grazie..Alessandro Bertoli Why can't I customize the whole start page with an image background from my personal archive on Mozilla Firefox? Can I know? It is not possible that the entire home page remains empty and white without any image and as a background you use only the top part and with the themes established only by you. Don't you feel like hypocrites? Thanks .. Alessandro Bertoli

I'm currently using Linux Firefox 88.0 (64-bit). There is a webpage http://www3.winsystem.org/monitor/webmonitor.php that displays some streaming text information as people transmit on their amateur radios. Is it somehow possible to capture that information stream in real-time?

My intent is to use a shell script for further processing.

Under about:preferences#privacy there is a section 'Cookies and Site Data'. I have my settings set to CUSTOM and block all cookies. I then have managed my exceptions. I did a refresh resently, all that was lost. The best I can do currently is to have wordpad open and manually type each line out in my exceptions and then if needed in the future, I could copy and paste. There might be a better way that I do not know. I do know by default, the 'Managed Exceptions' under 'Cookies and Site Data' does not save if 'Refreshed'. Please address a better process and not my choice on blocking all cookies, thank you.
