I change my language by pressing ctrl+shift in every program but yesterday 21.03.2020 something went wrong and firefox browser didn't do anything when I type ctrl+shift instead it only changed language with alt+shift which is BAD for me. Windows 10 language panel displays that every program is changing language with ctrl+shift and it is true for every program but only firefox refuses to obey this rule. How to fix this? Not using any type of profile and applications that may change language

I moved from chrome to firefox. The zoom meeting does not work. I tried first through the web site (https://zoom.us/) to connect to a meeting. It will never pop up the dialog to ask me and open up zoom.

I downloaded also the zoom app. I start the app and first I tried to lsign in. I click on sign using facebook, then a new window of firefox opens up. The site that tries to connect is (zoommtg://zoom.us/facebook?token=muM7ER9yHmD6ueNhhdFjQKv7lz5L7%2FZ9C2nWw%2FeSevroeFDWx5j6JG5wwmu%2FhEld0RXgcqknbhNqq%2B9PEG4na3Mc3C9VCbute08OO14STh8JLPiAHDLhmog6vZ4uFKru%2FjZ2DjoBdMXbA0rDHV3WhuiPJ0jLJNp517Ate38WD5vuGnoaOayscn3agXceYmNwcAZ6ZBnIIv67k4Ou%2Fy5nkxuyhvJNpDnMZwojeV4T8DNKv%2B8QQUGYB%2Fl2J5ILM825&errorno=0&errormsg=&expire=5130456).

Then it fails, it reports a error: The address wasn’t understood Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (zoommtg) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context. You might need to install other software to open this address.

I lookeup on the internet about possible solution. But non has worked. Mainly people implied that firefox does not has a protocol for the zoom tag. (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1280803) Indeed also in my case it does not. But like also the the last person noted in the the previous case, also in my case that did not help.

I have Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS, Firefox 74.0 (64bit).

Any idea?

As stated in the title, everytime when I open a link in the operating system (i.e. clicking on a link in an email or opening a website with Alfred) while Firefox is not already running, the following happens:

1. Two Firefox windows are opened 2. One window opens the requested website (https://startpage.com in the Screenshots) but has no context items in the Menu Bar above. 3. The second opens at Home and has the items in the Menu Bar.

I am using Mac OS Catalina (multiple versions) and the issue persisted a complete reinstall (I wiped my hard drive and did a clean install) of the operating system. I tried mainstream Firefox 73.0 and Firefox Dev Edition latest beta 74.0b2. (Used `brew cask` to install) Also I do have another Mac on High Sierra that does not have this issue.

  • Firefox crashes whenever the Windows file dialog is displayed (e.g. if choosing a save location when downloading files).
  • SolidWorks PDM appears to cause this, see information here: https://forum.solidworks.com/thread/220894
  • Until two days ago, running Firefox in Windows 7 compatibility mode solved the problem. However running Firefox in Windows 7 compatibility mode now results in blank tabs - similar to as described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1231445.

So I am caught between a rock and a hard place. I have to switch off compatibility mode for browsing to work. But then Firefox crashes any time I want to download or upload a file.

If anyone has any idea's I'd appreciate it. I really don't want to be forced back onto Chrome...

So my Firefox Developer edition just got updated to the version 74.0b2 and I got this brand new address/search bar. One of the things that it used to have before it had been updated was a simple arrow-down button that, when clicked, showed the most visited sites. Now, after the update, this button is gone (pic related). This makes my experience with Firefox *extremely* worse, because now I don't have a quick access to open one of my most visited sites inside the current tab without starting typing their addresses. Is there any option to bring that feature back? Is removal of this button an already-made design choice for Firefox that will stay with us for the next versions?

Hello,

I have Firefox with two profiles, Personal and Work. I also have a VPN provided by the company which is setup on Windows 10 as a Public Network, on both profiles the network settings are the same and while the Personal has anti ads and privacy plugins, the Work doesn't have a single plugin.

My issue is that the Personal profile is able to use the VPN and access the work network while the Work profile is not. With both network settings matching, are there any settings in the About:config that i can check that would co-relate with the issue that i'm having?

In the latest version of Firefox Developer Edition, I notice the the urlbar behaviour has changed from what it was before and I want to change it back. Are there any settings in about:config that do this? In particular, I want to stop expanding and even showing suggestions whenever I click in the address bar. To me, this is odd and distracting behaviour and not what is done by other browsers so I want to turn it off.

Firefox on Linux/ Wayland/ Sway is haveing trouble scaling on multiple screens when the screens have different scaling ratios

My setup:

Firefox versions 70-74, developer version and stable; Ubuntu 19.10 with Wayland/ Sway; Internal Monitor 3000x2000 with scaling ratio 2.0 + External Monitor 1920x1080 with scaling ratio 1.0

Ever since version 70 I noticed that Firefox would on first start scale either according to the external or internal monitor, and be perfectly workable on that one. But when moving it to the other monitor/ opening a new window on the other monitor it would not scale properly, but render according to the scaling factor of the other monitor. So, e.g. when moving from the internal to the external screen it would only render to the top left quarter of the screen, while the application was actually being the right size. At the same time the input mapping was according to the actual window dimensions, and not according to the visual rendering of Firefox. This would also happen the other way round, with Firefox then only rendering the top left part of the web page to the entire screen.

You can see this well on the attached screenshot, but notice that sway is a tiling window manager, so Firefox should actually be exactly the same size as the terminal next to it. Firefox also renders like this when the scaling factor was changed at run time, so the issue seems to me that Firefox on Wayland checks the scaling factor on startup just once globally and does not realize when it was changed or that it can be different on different monitors.
