I was looking for a solution to the VERY ANNOYING problem of having Firefox download PDFs I simply wanted to read from Firefox but not keep. I found the solution to that problem created by the Firefox devs themselves (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1370409#answer-1488645) and was going to leave it alone. It was just yet another obscure about:config setting to FIX a regression introduced by Firefox devs, no biggie, ALL firefox users are used to doing that by now since devs keep implementing solutions that look for problems instead of the other way around, but then someone said that you guys might get rid of the ability to disable this in the future. PLEASE DON'T. This "new way" of doing things is filling up MY HOME folder on Linux, not even my download folder. Instead of getting rid of this setting why don't you MAKE IT EXPLICIT in the downloads section. It's the least you can do since you created a problem that solves nothing. Most users who can't remember to download a pdf they were looking at won't remember how to look for it in the downloads folder either. You will just clutter people's download folder with JUNK for no reason and eat at their storage. I'll say it once and I'll say it again: the biggest advocates for Firefox's rival browsers are Firefox devs themselves smh.

Is there a way for the new window animation in Firefox for Mac to be disabled?

Safari does not do this, but firefox has a... ~100ms animation for new windows that's extremely frustrating for those of us who do not use tabs (Apple's Exposé/Mission Control obsoletes them).

I haven't found a configuration in about:config, although I've been able to disable a few others.

I am, for the last two to three weeks sufferering limited access to my Barclays online banking if I use Firefox. My bank eventually told me to use an alternate, more popular browser to access it, which I was loathe to do but it worked first time! This is not the first time Firefox has had these issues either. What are you doing about it?

Certain websites make my external monitor go black. Most websites are fine, but for some it just goes to black. Only removing and attaching the HDMI to my laptop again, will make the screen return to normal. Could some kind of DRM check be the issue in some way? This is because it happens on netflix.com for example, or apple tv+.

Dropbox has a feature for creating and saving GoogleDocs within Dropbox folders. This feature can be accessed via the Dropbox website interface (e.g. "Create->Document->Google Docs". This works well when using Chrome and Safari browsers, but I cannot get it to work with Firefox. When I create or try to edit an existing GoogleDoc via the Dropbox website, I am prompted to sign into my Google account, however clicking "Sign in" only refreshes the page, so the Google Doc cannot be loaded.

I have tried the following fixes: - Turned off "Enhanced tracking protection" for dropbox.com (via the shield icon to the left of the address bar). - Allow all cookies and trackers (Firefox preferences -> Enhanced tracking protection -> unchecked cookies and tracking). - Allowed cookies and site data from dropbox.com and google.com (Firefox preferences -> Cookies and Site Data -> Manage Exceptions).

Advice would be welcome, thank you!

I use a web app for learning guitar at https://www.fender.com/play It used the microphone to grade your playing Using Firefox 107.0 (64 bit) under Linux Mint - after a recent upgrade the mic stopped working at this site Fender play says, " Microphone access | We require microphone access to give feedback on your playing | Please click "Allow" or "Share"above to provide it for us."

But 'old' dialog box requesting permission never shows up. Address bar shows 'mic icon', but clicking on it does nothing

If I google "mic test" the mic seems to work fine at a "testing" site

I think Fender actually uses MatchMySound1.com to analyze -- Has some setting permission possibly changed? Works in Firefox 102.5esr using Debian

BTW: = Settings | Privacy & Security | microphone [settings] doesn't seem useful

Thanks in advance

Video playback stutters in Firefox and Firefox Nightly but not in an external player (mpv) or Edge. Hardware acceleration on/off makes no difference. Using the latest Radeon driver 22.11.2. Most noticeable during slow pan like this https://youtube.com/clip/Ugkx7jP_XuVB7i-O6ljGHQ_NjPmEakzvD7yM

The video playback stuttering isn't new but I only stated looking into it now. No idea how long it's been like this. At first I thought it might be caused by running my monitors at true 120Hz and 60Hz instead of a fractional framerate but then the stuttering should be visible on other apps too. Switching to a fractional 60 didn't change anything in Firefox.

I am able to login to my account however my "primary password" was breached and changed. I am now unable to login to the browser and use my Bookmarks.

You'll know it has been breached because I have only used on password since I began using FireFox. As of January 9th, 2023 it has been changed to something new.

How can this "primary password" be removed or reset?

Just the last month or so, when I preview an attachment then download it, I find that my Yahoo email session has been closed.

A recent Firefox update made it easy for me to re-open the mail session but it never returns to the email I had open at the time.

Is this a Yahoo issue or a Firefox issue? And more importantly, how do I stop it happening?

I notice similar questions last year had no response

How to disable menu popping up when I press ALT + T ?

I want to assign Alt + T for some extension. I set ui.key.menuAccessKeyFocuses to false but it isn't enough. When I press Alt + T the Tools section in menu pops up! Absolutely annoying.
