For the last week or two I have had an issue with Firefox closing my email (yahoo business mail) tab automatically, every time I download a file from an email.

After opening emial I click to download the file, i have the settings set to ask where I want it saved, and then either while I'm selecting the destination and labeling it, or right after the tab automatically closes. It happens both ways which suggests to me it's occurring after a specified amount of time, not based on completion of an action. And it's happening every time.

MacBook Pro Firefox 102.0.1

Any idea how to stop this?

I'm trying to sign into/sync Firefox on a new phone. It keeps saying I need to get code from authenticator app. I don't have one! I try to scan IR code from computer, but it still requires a code. Sometimes it says it is sending a code to my email address. It does not. I ask it to resend code but it never does. I am logged into Firefox on my computer, is there a way to turn off the authenticator or otherwise solve this problem?

Copying Multi-Account Containers Addon with specific sites per container

I just had a glitch with the latest update to 102b, FF insisted I had an old version and would only let me make a new profile. So I had to set up multi-account containers again. I have specific sites opening up in each container, and I'd like to make a copy to make sure that if my profile gets goofed up somehow, I can always easily restore my setup with multiaccount containers just the way I like it.

What do I need to copy, so that with a new profile, all I need to do is copy over some files?

In my profile folder, I see an Extensions folder, as well as an extensions.json and extensions-settings.json.

Are those the only folders/files I'd need to restore multi-account containers on a new profile?

I have thought of using FF Sync, but I keep reading that it is not intended for copying, so much as sharing across different devices, which is not something I'm interested in. Should I just let sync copy my extensions, and then sign back in, in the event I want to restore addons to a new profile?

Since earlier this week my Firefox browser has been turning .jar files from GitLab into .jar.zip files, which prevents them from being used properly until renamed. Attempting to download the same files on Edge or Chrome works correctly, and attempting to download any jar files from other websites (even GitHub) also works correctly. It seems that GitLab is the only website that is affected by this.

Examples of files being affected (they should be downloaded as normal .jar files): 1. https://gitlab.com/Trafalcraft/antiRedstoneClock/uploads/3b3c84814d76810f826c3803eaca1e66/antiRedstoneClock-1.4.1.jar 2. https://gitlab.com/Aristois/ui-installer/-/jobs/2505715157/artifacts/raw/packager/Aristois-Free.jar 3. https://gitlab.com/Aristois/Installer/-/jobs/2495195255/artifacts/raw/packager/free/Installer-2.0.3.jar

I'm using Firefox developer edition (102.0b3), and already tried using private mode, resetting Firefox, and reinstalling. Since I use GitLab as a main source to upload files, many users have also complained the same problem to me, in which all of the users were running Firefox. After they downloaded with a different browser, it worked for them as well.

Firefox 102 beta stopped opening source of web pages in external editor

I have view_source.editor.external set to "true" and view_source.editor.path set to "C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe"

Before version 102, CTRL-U on any web page would open the page's source in the external editor.

In 102, the source is opened in the internal source viewer (in a browser tab).

The console shows:

Hello! Short story: I recently discovered that adding a new GIF image to a page resets the animations of existing GIF images on the page with the same src.

Expected behavior: Adding a new GIF image to the page should not reset the animation of existing images with same src.

Actual result: Adding a new GIF image to the page resets the animation of all existing GIF images on the page with same src.

Code with example: https://codesandbox.io/s/heuristic-platform-jsguir Video demo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-ZMrrqq_KI

Simplified version of the code showing unexpected behavior: https://codesandbox.io/s/elastic-shtern-vwrcx1

Does anyone know why this is happening? Is this a bug?

Hello community, first of all i must say that i find it disappointing and upsetting that we're left between each other if help is needed, that there isn't actually an official resolution centre, to make a report, file a case and be answered by a Mozilla expert directly whenever and try to resolve it 1 on 1,first reason to dump Firefox.

2nd reason, we're in year 2022, yes, we've come a long long way in technology and software development and there's still NO option to make a BACKUP, a clone of your current Firefox profile or have an option for automatic backup from time to time or at least before you do an update etc.

I was updating my Firefox and didn't have enough space so after it downloads the update just won't install it. No worries, easy, freed space and let's try again, success....Or not, as I've LOST all my opened tabs, just gone. Yes sync is on, logged in, activated but what's really point of it??? I think most of us saw it as something in a way of an online backup of our tabs, bookmarks, logins, history, add-ons etc. somewhere in some cloud if something goes wrong to be able and restore stuff not just sync between devices which is also confusing and not syncing asking from/to what to sync between devices.

Why is it so difficult to add a backup option online or on devices storage? I'd literally give anything to be able and get my tabs back but it's impossible as the

Firefox version: 102.0b7 OS: Win 11

While watching videos(movies/anime) video takes much time to buffer. If video is of 20 minutes then it loads first few minutes then after watch time reaches that buffered video then it takes more time buffer.

What I am looking is for, how can I force firefox to buffer full video at once or is there any way to increase buffer size.

When can the feature to move multiple bookmarks at a time to a selected folder (i.e. move or copy & paste) be added into Firefox Mobile?

How ignorant that you can SELECT multiple bookmarks, but then the ONLY available option is to DELETE them, with NO option to move them to an already created folder. I don't WANT to sync because I have separate research topics on my laptop and on my smartphone, and want to KEEP them separate. A smarter option is to offer one repository for "Mobile" Firefox, and one for the Full Desktop Firefox, then allow SELECTED importing between the two. Why are you all handicapping yourselves like this? Each NEW "Mobile" version seems only to TAKE AWAY the most useful features (like printing) of the PREVIOUS version! :( When will it stop?

I have been seaching for the solution for the whole day, and i found the closest one. It Does remove tabs, windows buttoms, but the background bar still remains, and i dont need it this way. So thats the code i used to make it >>>>>

  1. main-window[tabsintitlebar="true"]:not([extradragspace="true"]) #TabsToolbar .titlebar-spacer {
       border-inline-end: none;

}

  1. main-window:not([extradragspace="true"]) #TabsToolbar > .toolbar-items {
 opacity: 0;
 pointer-events: none;

} /* This makes the bar shorter vertically but removes the 3 window buttons */

  1. main-window #TabsToolbar {
 visibility: collapse !important;

} /* For full screen mode */

  1. TabsToolbar[inFullscreen]{
 display: none !important; 

}

On the screenshot you can see what remains on tabs' bar place I need my browser to end just above the URL string, so there wont be empty space in the top of the monitor. Can you help me find solution for this problem, please?
