Empty dialog for extensions after gfx.webrender.all: true

Nom: Firefox Version: 83.0 Identifiant de compilation: 20201126174332 ID de distribution: archlinux Agent utilisateur: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:83.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/83.0 Système d’exploitation: Linux 5.9.10-arch1-1 #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun, 22 Nov 2020 14:16:59 +0000

After enabling gfx.webrender.all (value true in about:config), there is no more tearing in web sites like google street view. But all my extensions, while working, offer an empty dialog pop-uo when I left click on their icon in Firefox main bar. UBlock origin, HTTPS Everywhere, Privacy Badger or Joplin all act with the same behavior. See screenshot. If I disable gfx.webrender.all all my extensions dialogs are back.

I had gfx.webrender.all set to true before version 83.0 of Firefox and my extensions were working fine.

I am migrating my wordpress based website to a new computer with a LEMP stack on Ubunto 20.04. I wish to access and test the website using the firefox browser offline. I have modified my local dns (/etc/hosts) file to include my site's url but firefox can't find it. Firefox manages to find the nginx greeting and it finds phpmyadmin which is used to manage my database, but it can't locate the wordpress web pages.

One might think I had a problem with my nginx server blocks, but that's not the case because google chrome finds the web pages with no problem.

FIrefox appears to reach out to the internet dns by default and ignore the localhost dns settings. So how do I change Firefox's default settings so that it can access websites on the same computer like Google Chrome does?

I do not use the majority of keyboard controls in Firefox-- only Ctrl+F. Lately, I've noticed that using Ctrl+I in editor windows also pops up the Page Info window, which I have never used on purpose and am perfectly comfortable accessing via Firefox's menubar.

I have been searching for over an hour, and every Firefox add-on that I can find to fix this problem has been removed.

Ideally, I would like to be able to configure all of my keyboard shortcuts, but practically I will settle for being able to disable Ctrl-B, Ctrl-I, and Ctrl-U.

Hello!

I've change the size of the icons in the bookmark bar by using the userChrome.css which now has

  1. personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon { height:25px !important; width:25px !important; }

I've increased the height and the width for larger size of the icons since my bookmarks don't have text. The problem is that some of the become blurry after the enlargement. I've tried to force refresh the favicons by Ctrl+F5 and also deleting the cache, but it still does not work.

I know that favicons are usually provided in 16x16 px and 32x32, but I don't see how could I make firefox use the 32x32 version since it's using the 16x16 and enlarging it.

Thanks in advance!

Hi, everyone!

I found a similar solution but only for "Open link in new tab": you can go to about:config and change the preference named browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground. But I want the same thing for my saved bookmarks on Bookmarks Toolbar. Sometimes I need to open a few bookmarks from one folder and then I used for it middle-click or click on Open in new tab, but it switches to tab immediately and I should repeat a process again: click on a folder, find a bookmark, click on it, new tab opened and so on. So is there an option to open bookmarks in background tabs? How can I achieve that?

Hi, Linux user here. So I've set up fallback fonts for Arabic script languages, both using system configuration files and the Firefox preferences. However, on websites, the Arabic text is not displayed in the font I have chosen, rather other fonts. It used to be so that all text using Arabic script used the font I had chosen, but now it's only true for when I type in the address bar, the window titles, etc, not for websites. How do I fix this?

How do I stop an image from moving or block it?

I would like to stop the image moving or block it once and for all. The animated image is shown here: https://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,154209.msg1323298.html#msg1323298

It is in the poster's signature; it doesn't just move across the page once, it keeps moving across; now another user of that forum has added it to his signature also.

I have these in about:config: image.animation_mode none ui.prefersReducedMotion 1

I have tried blocking the element with uBlock Origin and stopping javascript on the site. I can remove it using another add-on but that only works for that occasion. I don't want to install NoScript because it stops Facebook working.

It doesn't matter if the video is on the youtube.com site, or on a Zoom.com site.

I have a piece of code which has worked fine since I wrote it almost 20 years ago and which has only been fine tuned as the standards for JavaScript have been refined over those two decades. The functionality is to act when the user stops typing into a textbox for 0.9 seconds, which by trial and error I found was fast enough to act without premature invocation because the user was just typing slowly.

```javascript // in the initialization code element.addEventListener('keydown', onKeyDownName); ... function onKeyDownName(event) {

   if (timer)
       clearTimeout(timer);
   timer   = setTimeout(update, 900);
   alert("nominalIndex.js: onKeyDownName: timer=" + timer)

} // function onKeyDownName

function update() {

   alert("nominalIndex.js: update:");
   // perform the function

} ```

The alerts are only inserted, on my private test site only, to try and debug why this code is no longer working. Each time I type a character I see the alert "nominalIndex.js: onKeyDownName: timer=nnn" but no matter how long I wait I never see the alert "nominalIndex.js: update:". To get the function to work the user must take some other action which causes the function update to be called. There are no messages in the log to explain why the timer isn't popping. How can I debug this?

The code works on Chromium 87.0.4280.88 but doesn't work on FireFox 83.0 build id 20201112153044. I am running Ubuntu Linux 20.04
