I've set my Default Zoom level to 150% but it doesn't work. When I open a link or a bookmark in a new tab the zoom level is at 100% as usual.

I have even tried visiting a website, zooming in manually, then opening a link to the same website in a new tab and the zoom level is reset to 100% in the new tab.

I don't use any other extensions which provide page zoom.

I have tried with "browser.zoom.siteSpecific" both true and false but neither helps.

Hello Guys,

I hope that you can help me. I work for a company with 900+ Windows Clients and several Terminal Server users. At the moment I deployed Firefox ESR 68.4.2 32-Bit. Yes 32-Bit, my mistake. Anyway, I want to update to version ESR 68.5.0. At the same time, I want to jump onto the 64-Bit version. This article mentioned no problem at all; install 64-Bit and afterwards uninstall the 32-Bit version of Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/switch-32-bit-64-bit

I did this step for step but I can't see the bookmarks on the 64-Bit version. If I uninstall and reinstall the 32-Bit Version the bookmarks are back. I need help, please. The users are going to kill me, if I "delete" their bookmarks.

Greetings and thank you in advance!

Firefox 68. A web site I visit daily always shows a popup asking me to accept cookies ("aceptar y continuar navegando"). It's annoying.

In options, I've selected "standard" for the cookie policy. I've emptied the cache, used the "forget this site" in the history for the web pages where the message pops up, and reloaded Firefox. It still prompts me.

Here's one of the pages it happens on: https://www.antena3.com/series/el-secreto-de-puente-viejo/avances/ Click "avances" or "momentos" and a large black box should pop up on the bottom of the screen, with the "aceptar y continuar navegando" in the lower right in a red rectangle.

Essentially, I want to tell the web site that I accept having cookies and have the web site remember my answer for the future.

YouTube mobile redirects to Desktop Site

This began yesterday (Feb 9, 2020), when I refreshed a YouTube video I was watching, and suddently it was in desktop view. Since then, all my bookmarked YouTube links redirect to the desktop site, & any address I input with “m.youtube.com” redirects to “https://www.youtube.com/?app=desktop”. Clicking and unclicking “Request desktop site” did nothing, clearing the cache/cookies/history or checking for an update of Firefox yielded no results. It's very frustrating, because the desktop view on mobile does not allow me to adjust the video settings (eg captions, playback speed) or see my actual list of subscribed-to channels on the subscriptions page, not to mention how small everything looks and the fact that I have to zoom in to press most basic buttons.

All my Google searches yielded (apart from how to request the desktop view, which is the opposite of my problem) is that YouTube is discontinuing its “classic view,” but I don't see how that translates to Firefox redirecting every “m.youtube.com...” URL to “...?app=desktop”.

Any help with this issue would be appreciated!
