In about:config I have set "geo.enabled" to false. -> www.google.com still displays the content in my language, darn.

I went went back to about:config and marked "only show modified preferences" -> to my surprise not only "geo.enabled 1" was displayed but also "permissions.default.geo 2" (though I never touched that one - so I thought they must be linked somehow)

I was curious and reverted "permissions.default.geo" back to default -> now it is set to "0" -> but "geo.enable" is still on "false" (so I am not sure anymore if they are really linked together - which doesnt make sense to me)

Now I don't know if I should leave "permissions.default.geo" on "2" how I found it, or on "0" which is the default. That's why I come here to ask:

==> What are the three states of "permissions.default.geo [0/1/2]" doing and how is it interacting with "geo.enable"?

I have had several computers and a phone synced with Firefox. Recently, my mac book had to be wiped and OS reinstalled. Since then I have been unable to sync to my Firefox account on that laptop. I enter my standard email and the same password as on my desktop, but get an error stating, "Incorrect Password".

Following suggestion from an older thread with the same problem, I installed a nightly build on my desktop and tried to log in with that, unsuccessfully. Same problem. I used my same email and same password, but the nightly build version of Firefox reported the error, "Incorrect Password".

While thinking about this, I checked my newish phone and found it was not synced either. Using my email and password, I was unable to get it to sync. However, I was able to sync the phone using the QR code. So my phone is now synced to my Firefox account.

I really want to get the laptop to sync to my Firefox account and am mystified as to how to track down what the problem might be.

Copy and Paste Not working

When copy and pasting specific images on pc (be that laptop or computer), firefox will copy the image, but it will not actually be pasted anywhere when i attempt to paste it. The image is black if it does show an image, and when it doesn't nothing happens. On my phone, when i download the images they are black as well, and do not show anything.

The only thing that I can think of that would be causing this is some filter that detects "explicit" imagery, as it has only ever seemed to be a problem when there was not safe for work content that i was copying, for instance: i was trying to copy and paste an image of a gun from firefox to differing applications, and it never worked. I was able to easily copy and paste an image of the globe however.

If it is filtering explicit imagery, how do I turn this off? If something else is causing the problem, please help me fix it!

In short, "Open previous windows and tabs" is no longer working. I'm using version 111.0 (64-bit).

I have done the following: 1. Troubleshooting mode 2. Removed or disabled all my extensions 3. Refresh Firefox - twice! 4. Disconnect sync across my two laptops

Still, nothing is fixing the issue. My previous windows and tabs are not being restored.

Help, please!

I subscribe to a website called flat.io. It's a site where I can enter music notation and get playback through emulated instruments.

I want to connect my Yamaha MX88 music keyboard directly to flat.io in order to have the site software record my music keyboard keystrokes instead of entering music notes by hand. flat.io tells that you are compatible, but I need to change settings to allow midi.

I hope you can help me. Thanks, Jim Whited

I have the latest version of Android 13 and Firefox up to date on my phone, but there's been some weird behavior when playing videos as of late. Videos refuse to properly go fullscreen now. When I tap the fullscreen button, the video moves to the center of the screen but stays in portrait orientation, which is obviously not what I want. In addition, picture-in-picture is not working at all, and the notification control panel (that lets you pause and play minimized videos from the notification) is not appearing even though notifications are not disabled for Firefox. Videos still play, but almost none of the features for them are working. What is going on? Can anyone help?

I had some problems with Firefox and in the course of fixing things my 1Password extension disappeared.

I'm using an older version of the 1Password extension and have used it for many years, and the extension was working fine in my Win 11 computer before my "fix" of Firefox caused it to disappear. But I still have the 1Password extension executable, so I ran that and 1Password showed up in Firefox - sort of.

The regular 1Password icon looks something like a door's lock, but that lock symbol has been replaced by something that looks more like a puzzle piece. When I click on that puzzle piece I get see the window showed in the 1st image and when I put my mouse pointer in that window I'm asked to "run" the extension as shown in the 2nd image. The 1Password extension works fine but I don't understand why I'm seeing an icon that I didn't used to see and being required to "run" the extension instead of simply clicking on the icon.

Starting by Firefox Android version 110, the autofill for username and password didn't work for certain websites (in my case, it's: http://e-learning.stmi.ac.id/auth/login). The option to choose username is there, but after clicking one of the username, it fails to fill in the login form.

Other websites with that same domain name (any.stmi.ac.id) also didn't work.

In desktop Firefox, the autofill works just fine for websites from that domain.

Please kindly help. Thank you

When I opened my Browser this morning (15 March 2023), I saw a message that I could edit PDF documents directly with Mozilla. There was a suggestion (button, I think) to try it. I did. There was a sample letter. On the letter in light gray were comments like "Use the [I-bar} to write here" and "Use the [paint brush] to...." I have no idea where these icons are. Their pictures on the screen where the suggestions are given are not interactive.

Prior to recent updates, Firefox tabs that were opened from a link on a webpage would always open right next to the current tab. Which was fine and wonderful. Sadly, following recent version updates new tabs opened from links now tend to 'wonder' off to the far end of whatever other links may have also been opened previously from that site. The problem with this new behaviour is that such tabs quickly become lost amongst the various branches of the tree as other links are opened in 'child' tabs of links that have gone before. In short, this new behaviour results in a complete confusing mess, especially as the newly opened tabs may end up so far off to the right that it's difficult to find the way back to the page they were opened from! Please could you at least provide an option so the user can set new links to open right next to the current tab, as they used to do, rather than some no doubt logical but nonetheless baffling and impractical location some 6, 21 or even more tabs away from the current tab. Thanks

I can not get Firefox version 111.0.1 to work with Fedex tracking system. I get a message from Fedex saying "Unfortunately we are unable to retrieve your tracking results at this time. Please try again later." But when I use Microsoft Edge I get all my tracking information. I have cleared the cache for Fedex but that does not work. I have had this same problem with UPS also.

I've used Firefox for years on my iMac with its 5K display. The UI was fine. Today I had to delete and then re-install Firefox because the program had started crashing repeatedly. I lost a lot of bookmarks & tabs. Upon opening the new install, I saw that Firefox now shows a miniaturized UI that is very difficult to read. I refer to the UI elements (tabs, bookmarks bar, URL/search field), not the web pages themselves. As part of the installation, I went through all the settings, and I didn't see any controls for the sizes of UI elements. So I searched the internet and found many reports of similar problems over many years. I tried a few suggested changes to about:config settings. Nothing has worked. I am exasperated. What am I missing? Can anyone help?
