I am totally blind, and quite often websites displays a question something like, "Website X would like to access your location. Allow?" My issue is that I cannot find a keyboard-only method to answer that pop-up. Most of the time, I cannot find the "click" control to say either "allow" or "don't allow." I hope that there is a way that I can respond to those pop-ups without sighted assistance because I do not have such assistance readily available, and the pop-up apparently disappears after a few seconds. The old Internet Explorer had a shortcut ALT-N to reach that bar or whatever it was so that a blind person could enter a response. Firefox needs something like that function if it doesn't already exist so that we who are blind would have access to this type of pop-up equal that of sighted users.

Instead of showing the origin of a pdf file, Firefox now downloads it an shows file:///C:/Users/Me/AppData/Local/Temp/Maribyrnong-Bicycle-Strateg-2020-2030-4.pdf That's not at all helpful guys. Because I don't get the address from google either, they just have their own reference. I have to open internet explorer to let me copy the address so I can send it to a mate in an email. Just a bit of feedback.

Hello I have been a Firefoxan since the year 2004. I really admired what Mozilla did to compete in the browser market. Recently, Firefox not longer accepted to "Submit feedback" via the browser menu. I wanted to complain about a couple of things but it took a lot of time for me to reach here. Believe me Mozilla, this is not a good time to stop listening to users and refuse to receive complains.

It is high time for me to move to another browser after 16 years.

In the settings in the Privacy and Security section, there is Site Permissions. When I select that I can see a list of services that I can change permissions for different things like Autoplay, camera, location, etc. I also see Exceptions which shows websites that have different settings than the list above it. I cannot find how to add a website to the Exceptions list if I want to allow certain things on that website.

Thanks

There is a picture in picture for videos but is there a way to have this for browsing? So it would be just a sleek popped out. no address bar, title bar or scroll bar or noticeable edges and just showing only the info of the page that you are on (as shown in the red box of the picture below) and just like the picture in picture it should be scalable so that you can adjust the size. Thanks for your time.

Cheers

"Prompt for filename" dialog hangs

I have FF 84 (64-bit) running on Windows 10 (1809, build 17763.1282)

When I try to save a file or upload a file, the dialog that prompts me for the filename and folder hangs, I have to kill FF. I am unable to upload or download files.

This started slowly over time and several FF versions. At first, the dialog was slow and took a few seconds, then it became a minute, now it is permanent, preventing me from up or downloading anything. File type doesn't matter, it is the dialog box that hangs.

When I select to download a file to a specific location, it works normally. This happens only with option enabled to "prompt for file name". So, there is a work-around for file downloads, but not for uploading files, which I frequently have to do (to our Sharepoint site).

This is happening only on my work laptop, neither on my personal laptop nor desktop. Unfortunately, IT has our systems locked up, there is very little I can do.

I did have IT uninstall and reinstall FF, but I used my old profile settings, so I it is possible that it might be related to those. However, this is also happening with Google Chrome (slow, does not hang), but not with Internet Exploder or Edge, both of which behave normally.

Hi,

I recently updated, only to find out that all my passwords had disappeared :(. I checked my profile and there were three 0Kb files: logins.json, logins.json.corrupt and logins-backup.json. cert9.db and key4.db are still there and aren't empty. I'm on Arch Linux, so no previous version as well. Is there anything I can do to restore my passwords?
