I'm using Firefox Beta on a slow laptop in Linux -so, manually changing videos to 360p from the cog works to make them play smoothly. The facebook SD Only setting in https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=videos doesn't really work -only in a few videos. If anyone knows of an extension that handles this on latest Firefox Beta let me know. Thank you.

This might be a stupid question and I'm shocked that I noticed this only now as a long time Firefox user... If I use the location bar to search for something Firefox opens the Google result page, but disables the "back"-button. So I can't get back to the page I've been visiting before. I've been wondering for a long time why sometimes clicking back doesn't lead me back to a page I know I was visiting earlier, now I finally figured out that this is because I was using the search from location bar. So my question: Is this the normal behavior or a bug in my installation? Is there anything I can do to fix this?

I use my bookmarks to keep track of fanfiction I want to read on archiveofourown.org. The site features a 'history' section itself. Recently I noticed that stories I've bookmarked say that I've visited them way more than I have. The 'How many times you've visited this page' ranges between 30 and 500 times for each story, when I've only actually clicked on them once myself as I bookmarked them. Is firefox constantly opening/pinging my bookmarks and is that what is being reflected on archiveofourown.org?

Thanks!

I'm using 78.0.2 (64-bit) Firefox on Mac OS and using a windows keyboard. Since most commands use cmd key and not ctrl key, it's a bit awkward on my current keyboard. Also, my mouse buttons which are programmed to go back don't work in Firefox. They work in chrome. Where do I access keybinding settings and how can I modify them? Thanks.

    I dont get why you removed the ability to see the history of the window I'm in, by using the back or forward arrows. It made it very convenient to go back to where I had started from or to see what do you original topic was that I had started the window for. Why would you remove this excellent feature?

    On my Windows laptop, the latest Firefox doesn't work right with the Wi-Fi login page for Hughes Internet at my local Denny's Restaurants. I have had to make Chrome the default browser so that I can get logged in and then I have to switch to Firefox. If you need a specific URL, contact me at stuff hat Phil Wells daught Net

    This third comment may not be Firefox asphalt, but I need to ask - why does Dashlane, V password manager I use, not work with Firefox for Android? It works for other versions of Firefox and it works for Chrome on Android. Is that their problem or yours?

    lastly, why is there not a simple email address that I can write to with questions It's not like I do very often, but being able to send a question or even an observation that might be helpful to you, to support at firefox.com, or whatever, would be easier for us users and would mean that we could keep a copy of the message that we've sent.

    An and, did you know that with, at least Firefox for Android, this form won't let the user put the cursor in the middle of the text to add or delete something? If I put the cursor in the middle of the text someplace and I hit delete where I start typing, the action wants up occurring at the very end Of the message. Something's very wrong.

    Hello, I am curious how we can customize the share options that show up on any webpage after tapping the 3 mashed potato balls at the top right. You can see that for me it brings up two options: discord and samsung messages. The most convenient method for me is to just copy the link. There used to a be an icon I could tap that did this but now it's gone. I assumed that the two suggested sharing methods cycle based on frequency of use. However the option to Copy Link is not even in the list of all possible sharing methods when you tap the 3 balls. It's quite a long list of essentially every app and sharing method on my phone including stuff nobody uses (like flipboard).

    tl;dr how can I put the Copy Link share method/button in the top right of any page?

    Thank you and have a nice day.

    I lost the horizontal scroll bar a few days ago, i.e. some time after the last update. I don't know what I did. I have Firefox 78.0.1 on Windows 10. I can still scroll using the left and right arrow keys but using the mouse is much easier. I still have a vertical scroll bar and can still use the mouse to scroll vertically.

    Hi,

    I am on windows 10/FF 78.01 and I have a batch file that on closure saves many things to another disk. Recently I added the saving of my Firefox profiles folder. I had read that when exporting/saving this folder one should ensure that Firefox is closed. Is there a tidy way of closing Firefox in my .bat script?

    Currently I am using the cmd taskkill /F /IM firefox.exe but I notice that when I reload Firefox it restarts pretty well exactly where it left off rather than starting with my standard set of tabs as defined in my option 'Use current pages'. It's not a big deal but it would nice to know if there is a correct way to close FF that gives the same restart result as when I do a manual hit 'x' /Close n tabs. Thank you

    Why I know it can be made visible

       Yesterday, the following archived version from June 19 was viewed.
       https://web.archive.org/web/20200619233630/https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
       The "New Recovered" column was visible, along with three other columns.
       Today, as in the past, "New Recovered" is again hidden.
    

    The question:

       *****   How can they be made visible?  *******
       
    

    Misc Information including the current, not yet archived, page

       The current webpage is https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
       The "New Recovered" column is hidden by default.
       Columns are hidden or unhidden by clicking the "Columns" button.
       Using Windows 10 1909 and Firefox 78
       
    

    What I have tried

       Tab to "Columns" button; tried every modifier key, ctrl+<key>, Enter, right- and left-click...
       
    

    How to see what I see

       First visit the current page https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
       "New Recovered" column is not visible.
       Click "Columns" and select "New Recovered" which is column 7.
       (it is 6 in list because column 1 can't be hidden)
       
       Now, open an archived page.  This is the one which had no hidden columns yesterday.
       https://web.archive.org/web/20200619233630/https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
       Note the "New Recovered" column is not visible.
       To prove the data has been captured:
       Select "Yesterday"
       Press "Ctrl+u" to see the "Page Source"
       Find (Ctrl+f) and find one of the following "New Recovered" values (96,845  10,942) World & USA
       Find "Columns" to see the list of available columns.  ("New Recovered" is column 7)
       Find again and to see that columns 7, 16-18 are set to false preventing being displayed.
       
    

    Since "New Recovered" column on the archived page somehow became visible yesterday. I know it can be done. Thank you, in advance.

    So up until firefox updated... yesterday? day before? not sure my circadian Rhythm is a total mess at the moment. but ever since that most recent update picture in picture doesn't pop up on netflix anymore?

    i can still use it on YouTube and Prime Video, the only other sites i use it on really, but not Netflix?

    as you can see, the icon appears fine on youtube, but on the netflix screenshot, it does not.

    dead annoying since watching a show with picture in picture while grinding in a windowed game is a poor gamer's second screen.
