I need to use Google Meet for a professional purpose. When I use is from the Chrome browser, I can present a specific tab on my desktop; however, I prefer to use Firefox as my default Browser. The problem is, when I use Meet on Firefox, the presentation options don't include sharing a tab. Is there a way to fix this, or do I just need to use Chrome when meeting?

Thank you.

PayPal checkout popup window loads indefinitely; cannot make a payment

When using the "Checkout with PayPal" button on websites the PayPal popup window appears however it's impossible to progress to the checkout.

When OneTouch is activated, the text 'Securely logging you in...' appears overlayed with the spinning wheel in the popup window. This continues indefinitely.

When this is not activated the window doesn't progress further after entering the email as prompted by the window and pressing Next.

It's possible to login to PayPal in a separate tab however that doesn't influence the popup behaviour.


Looking at the console in the popup there are a few 'Unable to find window by ref window.js:148:14' errors.

In the 'host' window where the popup was called from the console displays the 'Failed to execute ‘postMessage’ on ‘DOMWindow’: The target origin provided (‘https://www.paypal.com’) does not match the recipient window’s origin (‘https://www.paypal.com’).' error.


I believe this could be a recent issue because I was able to make several payments last month with all settings the same. I have a separate user.js file that I keep my settings in (I can send it over if required). These settings have not been changed since the file has been created.


The following actions have been tried and didn't improve the situation:

- refreshing the current profile

- disabling all addins

- adding paypal.com into exclusions for 'Block pop-up windows' and Enhanced Tracking Protection

- cleaning History and cookies


I then launched Firefox with a separate 'clean' profile and was able to make the payment successfully. Sure enough, importing my user.js file broke PayPal. I went through the settings commenting them out by groups.

The following setting was causing the issue:

user_pref("privacy.firstparty.isolate", true);

Setting it to 'false' made the PayPal popup window work correctly again.

Thought that this would be helpful for anyone experiencing similar issues. Cheers.

I've had no problems for years when using PayPal to pay for Ebay items, but suddenly 14/02/2020 the PayPal pop-up window just sits there with the spinning circle. Paying by credit/debit card works fine, but I want the payment to come straight out from my bank account. Followed the simple instructions like disabling AdBlocker and checking Pop-ups are allowed, as given in other answers. Still stuck for a solution, saw elsewhere a reference to user_pref file but that just confused me as I'm not that technically minded. Any help would be gratefully received.

pc working fine and after going to the store and restarting I cannot connect to my gmail accounts and a few other websites. Other pc's are fine. I could be wrong but I think I allowed a ffox update to 74.0 which would have installed with that restart. Pages are 100% white. I can go to gmail and sign in but it goes to the same blank page. I tried clearing cache and cookies, no go. Restated ffox and even the whole pc. I do not want to possibly mess up things worse with my browser. Could this be caused by the update and how do I fix it without making a mess?

I'm not able to see stocks charts on google search and Google Finance is not opening when I use a Android device with Firefox. I tried with the latest versions of Firefox Focus, Nightly and Firefox standard. If I choose the desktop version, Google Finance works but it is with a very awful layout. On my Android, with Brave and Chrome the Google Finance site also opens. With my Mac, Firefox opens the Google Finance site. Any suggestions? Thanks

Google Maps not able to Access Location

My google maps is unable to access my location even though I have allowed location access from Firefox preferences/settings. The blue target button (Current Location) on Google maps is greyed out, and when I hover over it it says that access is not allowed. Even though when I'm in google maps, the Address bar shows that my location access is allowed, as well as in the Firefox settings. I have refreshed the window multiple times, restarted Firefox, cleared all cookies, and restarted my computer. I've also toggled the enhanced tracking protection in the address bar to off, restarted the browser, still not working. Everything in the settings tells me that access is allowed, yet google maps still tells me that it is denied. Has anyone had this problem, or know of a workaround or how to fix this? Thanks! (Working on Firefox 75. with a MAC)

Ever since the upgrade to Firefox 76.0 on Windows 10 Pro ... sometimes I click on a link ... then click on the back button ... I am returned to the top of the page instead of the location from which I exited the original page

I have seen this reported several times ... with the workaround of Open Link in New Tab (which I have had to use for YouTube for several years) ... but now all pages (including my own) ... exhibit this problem

I have started Firefox in safe mode as well as with all plugins disabled ... and the results are the same

The page in question is my BOOKMARKS.html from this or any other profile ... if that helps

Website custom font not rendering all letters correctly in Firefox 75.0

I have a website with custom font that is stored locally on server, and is defined in CSS file: @font-face {

   font-family: 'quicksandlight';
   src:  url('/static/fonts/Quicksand-VariableFont_wght.ttf') format('truetype'),
         url('/static/fonts/quicksand-variablefont_wght-webfont.woff2') format('woff2'),
         url('/static/fonts/quicksand-variablefont_wght-webfont.woff') format('woff');
   font-weight: normal;
   font-style: normal;

} Chrome is showing all letters in this font, and Edge and Firefox are showing most letters correct, but not B, D, T, P, R and X. What I know is that this is only happening on words that have "font-weight: bold" or "font_weight: 600", when it's set "font-weight: 400" all letters are renderd correctly. This is bugging me af, and if somebody can help to fix this, without need to change to lower font-weight, I would appreciate it.

I understand the newest version of Firefox offers support for WebP images, which is cool and great... but not when I need to download those images for use on my computer. As an artist I need to be able to save things as .jpg or .png for my art programs (or even preview) to be able to open them. Is there any way to make this an option, or to not default to webp when saving images?

I've also tried changing the extension on the file using the "all files" option but it just corrupts the file and won't open them.

I tested opening the site in another pc in my network and it works fine.

I hope someone can help me,

Thanks
