i've tried toggling media.hardwaremediakeys off and pressing the media keys to no avail, they don't seem to have any effect when it's enabled or disabled. the keys work on other applications like VLC media player, though! and I can see that the media is being detected from firefox, too, as it appears in media player widgets i have on my plasma desktop. it seems to be only the physical keys that aren't working, because i can press buttons on the widgets to control media playing in firefox.

When using the Export Logins feature to create a .csv file, the last few fields don't seem to translate into any known date-stamp format in Excel. The data seems to have relative chronological value, but I can't make sense of it in a spreadsheet.

Can a developer check this and modify the output of those fields so it's more compatible?

Example:

 Header             Cell data

There at least 3 websites now that I cannot open, straighttalk.com, kbb.com, and redbox.com. Last month I could open these websites, before that I could not, now I cannot again. I have had this problem for months. I have emptied my cache, I keep firefox up to date, and I have restarted my computer and browser multiple times. This is the error message I get from straighttalk.com:

Access denied Error 15 www.straighttalk.com 2023-06-26 13:48:00 UTC

This is the error message I get from kbb.com Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www.kbb.com/" on this server.

This is the error message I get from redbox.com 403 ERROR The request could not be satisfied. Request blocked. We can't connect to the server for this app or website at this time. There might be too much traffic or a configuration error. Try again later, or contact the app or website owner. If you provide content to customers through CloudFront, you can find steps to troubleshoot and help prevent this error by reviewing the CloudFront documentation.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Nicki

Dear Sirs,

today i did lockout everybody on a test server of a web application while playing with CSP on the server side. no modern browser was able to open the page anymore. but the real problem was that the configuration interface was also not accessable anymore.

the option security.csp.enable is long gone since FF 99 and i had to ""downgrade to FF 98"" to be able to access the misconfigured server.

please enable that security.csp.enable in about:config back again at least for the development version of FF. someone might need it. other options are to install risky extensions and i would like to avoid that in the future.

Yours

Why is there not a simple means to take a link and pin it as a tile on my home page? I've expanded the number of rows displayed which as an odd history of my browsing, yet the latest links I've visited are not there - meaning the link to the location I would like to pin. Seriously, the entries in the rows (other than previously pinned links) is a hodgepodge. It might be useful if there was some evident logic to the items included. It is disappointing the number of times this question has been posed and the "answer" is to display more rows. Similarly disappointing - an old knowledge base article that says to click the 3 dot icon next to address bar for Firefox on android - would have been handy had such a control appeared in the latest version of Firefox I'm running on my Mac.

Just updated to Firefox 114 from version 113 on Fedora 37 and spotted difference in the font rendering using the old profile.

On Firefox 114, the fonts are larger. I could not make it the same as in Firefox 113, despite all the configuration in the profile is the same. Downgrading to Firefox 113 return the previous font size/rendering.

However, in Firefox 114 there's a font difference even between my old profile and fresh new profile. The font configuration in the settings is exactly the same between these two profiles (default profile, Latin and Cyrillic — the same font families, sizes, checkboxes, i've even checked about:config options searching by "font" — all the same).

Check the screenshots.

Hello and thank you all in advance for giving your time to help us!

I run Firefox 114.0.1 on an Apple Mac Mini running Monterey 12.6.6.

Under the "Other Bookmarks" heading in the Library, I keep quite a lot of folders dividing my bookmarks into the various subjects they relate to and some of those folders are subdivided into subfolders.

One of my "simple" folders is called "PENDING" where i store stuff to look at when I have time. Last week I noticed that folder was missing! There's no other explanation than I stupidly deleted it without knowing, and it contained a lot of stuff!

I read up on restoring bookmarks from backup but

a) I only need this one folder and b) I don't want to overwrite all the bookmarks I've added in the past weeks.

Even if I could get the bookmarks from that one folder in a plain text file that I could read, I've no problem doing a bit of work, pasting each one into Google and re-acquiring it as a bookmark.

Any advice will be deeply appreciated!

Many thanks and very kind wishes,

Jim
