Microphone for Android mobile Firefox doesn't work: have checked and under "Settings, then "search

This is for my Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G: today is Monday, 2022.07. 25.1401.CDT I cannot get the microphone on android mobile Firefox[Version is labelled "Direfox Daylight, version 102.2.1 (Build # 2015891003]. The fix of turning "Show Voice Search" on under 'Search', under "Settings" has no impact: in fact I found "Show Voice Search" was already checked, and the microphone DOES NOT WORK?

I have Grammarly kb set, and wondered if other kb options as alternates but not active, like Gboard, the Samsung, Google or speech to text options, or known add-ons, etc. can be blocking my microphone? With this android mobile Firefox there is no option of entering "about..... Microphone" or other command line options do not work entered on this version of Firefox, what to do? I want the microphone "on" by default if possible as I was just dxed with Adult-onset or Type II diabetes, doing 5 finger sticks each day for my blood glucose: both fingers n thumbs every 2 days: my fingertips are so sort, even using a stylus, my kb entries have errors 50% of my attempts.

What is "Firefox Daylight"? A version for Android?

Are there other modifyiers for Firefox, like addons, or other Firefox modifying supplements like "site to ask permission for microphone" that are known to interfere or block microphone activity?

[Windows] Can't disable displaying "media control" on lock screen even if turned off via advanced settings

Windows has feature that displaying media control popup on its lock screen. Firefox has an option to turn this off via advanced setting, but turn "media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled" to "false" doesn't stop showing it up.

Also, on certain website (in my case tweetdeck), control screen of previously viewed and closed video is keep showing up and can't erase it unless restarting browser.

I asked this question on Microsoft forum but suggested it's Firefox issue. Does anyone have same problem? How can I fix this?

The automatic header of the quotation is only one line with name and date, if I create an answer for an email. It must be the complete header like the header of the quotation, if I create a forward-email. There is more information in that header like date, time, sender, receiver, subject of the original email wich is quoting. How can I configure this for the quotation of an answer-email?

thanks for your answer!

I've tried using Firefox Color, but there is no option to start from the default dark theme. Also, it seems that there are only a few options to customize using Firefox Color.

I cannot find theme files in ./AppData/Roaming/Mozzila/Firefox/

Hello,

I am using an addon called 'Provider for Google Calendar' that works seamlessly to sync calendar events in both directions using my Gmail Android app and Thunderbird email client v102 on my desktop. It's great.

I have been reading about addons for doing the same thing for contacts but the 2 addons that I see appear to be for use with older Thunderbird versions. There is gContactSync and Google Contacts so I am wondering if anyone may know of an add on or work around that will allow for the syncing of contacts between Thunderbird v102 and a Gmail account?

Sorry if I missed it but I cannot find anything when searching - perhaps nothing exists yet?

Thanks in advance for any tips,

Mike

Hi,

Is there a way to remove the "delete" option when right clicking on items in the download history? It's unfortunately right above 'remove from history' and easy to mis-click. It has no confirmation and permanently deletes the file(s) without sending to the recycle bin which is quite annoying - especially as I'm not sure why you'd want to use this menu to delete something you just downloaded.

Thanks

I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 . . . I was doing this (below), to customize my header and footer, but in this version of FF, I no longer see this in Options - only in: about:config . . . keyword "footer" . . . there, I would have to change it for 5 different ways of printing (to printers or to PDF)

I need to get rid of printing the URL in the footer - many times, it's too long, and I don't need it.

Where did the Page Setup option go?

I see in the current Print Options, you have to go to - More Settings / Margin / Custom - to see those. Why would they put this so many levels down?

It used to be: File / Page Setup / Margins & Header/Footer . . . "Customize" Headers & Footers:

Option 1 (left) . . . there are two leading spaces:

 > > &T
 > > &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Option 2 (left) . . . get rid of the ">"s, and just have the two leading spaces:

 &T
 &U . . . &D . . . &PT

With the new v85 of Firefox... for Microsoft Print to PDF...

the defaults for print headers & footers has changed and is no longer available to edit or even view. It seems as though my settings remain in place for other printing options like my physical printer but even there the options are not editable or viewable.

There used to be a "page setup" option but I have not be able to find this anywhere anymore.

I'm assuming that it has to do with the bug fix for pdf printing but doesn't seem that it should be an intended outcome of the fix.

Any work arounds anyone knows about or has found?

Hi!

I hardly use tabs, and I have a widescreen notebook. So one of the most important features a browser must have is not to waste vertical space.

Unfortunately, Firefefox has always tab bar open even if there is only one tab.

Fortunately, there is a css code to overcome this problem.

Unfortunately, it does not work with FF 103 anymore. It always shows a "+" sign.

How can I get rid of tab bar now?

Dimi

PS: This was my code, there are others too but also not working anymore:

 tab:only-of-type, tab:only-of-type + #tabs-newtab-button {
   display: none !important;
 }
 #tabbrowser-tabs, #tabbrowser-arrowscrollbox {
   min-height: 0 !important;
 }

Hello Lovely Firefox Volunteers,

I hope this email finds you well. I am a long-time user and fan of Firefox, and other open source projects. Firefox is a fantastic internet browser!

Having said that, I was shocked and dismayed at what I encountered today. I was doing some tests for screen-reader usability on a website, and I came across the following:

Image 1 (attached): Advertisement of Screen-Reader Add-Ons for Firefox

Image 2 (attached): No Screen-Reader Add-Ons for Firefox are Available

The Firefox team is advertising screen-reader add-ons for Firefox, which don't seem to exist. I don't think the recommendation here should be: take down the advertisement for the Firefox native screen-reader add-ons/link to them, these seem to be really important for accessibility, and the Firefox team seems to acknowledge this. :)

There is some other missing piece - maybe there are Screen-reader add-ons for Firefox, and they aren't being linked to? Maybe the wrong tag is being used? (The auto tag that is used in the link is "screen reader"). Maybe there aren't any, and this is an area that needs some additional attention?

Anyway, I just thought I should bring this to your attention as making our internet accessible to people living with blindness and loss of sight is extremely important.

Sincerely, Katie

I am transferring a huge mass of emails from many accounts to a new machine. To start with, I have chosen to export the Local Folders. For that purpose I have installed the extension ImportExportTools NG and used all combinations I could think of like "Export Folder" or "Export Folder with subfolders". When trying to import them on the new system, I always get empty folders, or the message 'This "MBOX" file uses a different format from the Thunderbird folder format and it's possible that Thunderbird can't handle it properly'.

And sure enough, the resulting folder is corrupted with messages that can't be read.

First of all, I don't know if the files are really MBOX files, because they have no extension, and if not, how do I generate proper MBOX files? Secondly, if these are MBOX files, why can't ImportExportTools NG not handle the files it has just generated?

Alternatively, I could also copy the folders directly, but would that not mess up the internal database?

Hi all,

So I recently got a new laptop for work, so naturally installed the latest version of Firefox on it. I see in a previous version, they changed the way "Open file" works, so now instead of it downloading to your TEMP folder and opening the file and hiding where it is "saved", it now just SAVES the file to the Downloads folder and opens it.

This is a problem for me at work, as I essentially open 100s of files every day and my Downloads folder is just full of junk now that I would need to sort out from what is junk and what isn't. Is there a way to change this back to the way it was, or is there a way to make it so that when I tell Firefox to OPEN a file, that it saves it a different location from my default Downloads folder? This way I could simply schedule a task to auto delete files older than X days, without risking files that I actually want saved.

Thanks very much.
