Hi all,

i'm currently developing an add-on that has an import from file feature that needs to open an "Open file" dialog, now the problem is that in order to do that i had to do the following:

  • inject some javascript code in the active page as a content script
  • call the execute command from the extension to open the dialog popup (that is actually emulating a click)

I have to do it, because from an extension when a "File open" dialog appear, the extension lose the focus and it is automatically closed, and its context destroyed, so when i actually press open on the dialog, the "caller" is already gone (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/26884140/open-import-file-in-a-chrome-extension/26917671#26917671 you can refer to my stackoverflow question to get an idea of what i was doing)

This works fine in chrome (And it worked for a while on firefox) but probably in the latest months/years (not sure when it happened) it stopped working and when i press the import button nothing happens, after some investigation i found what is the problem: the "block popup" windows option enabled by default (i suppose it is enabled by default i don't remember to have never enabled it), so when i disable it, the feature resume working. What i'm wondering is if there is a way to programmatically add an exception to the popup blocker option while installing the extension, or if there is any way to avoid closing the exception popup when the "File Open" Dialog appears.

Thanks everyone

I just want to vent nicely I'm using DuckDuckGo and I wish I could continue using it. But now I have concert tickets stored on my phone and this forces me to use Firefox browser. So I changed the settings to Firefox but DuckDuckGo continues to be the browser that I'm using even though when I go back and check the settings it says Firefox. So I'm going to have to delete DuckDuckGo. I'm already very unhappy that I'm being forced to use Firefox which does not seem to provide as much cover as ducked up go and ultimately back to Chrome if things continue in this convoluted complicated unhelpful manner. It just seems like technology is going backwards I understand that we're making advances but when it comes to simple tasks like going to a concert things have gotten horribly out of control My work site is practically frozen up with problems. And it's because they keep adding on instead of just simplifying and securing and battening down the hatches. They've got to stop trying to do so many different things

Firefox Version: 90.0.2 (64-bit)

Steps to reproduce:

I joined a Google meet meeting. I clicked on the present button. The only options I get are "Your entire screen" and "A window", there is no option to present "a tab".


Expected results: In other browsers like chrome, edge, there is an option to present only a tab. There should be one in firefox as well. It is very important.

When I attempt to access several websites, I am prompted to turn off my ad blocker. As I have not added a third-party software or extension that does such, I assume it is part of Firefox proper. Search as I might, I cannot find any specific reference to such a thing in "Settings". SO...how can I temporarily disable the 'Ad Blocker' device that is part of Firefox? The 'TEMPORARY' part is important, as I do greatly value the function!

Could you please help me?
