I'm currently using Linux Firefox 88.0 (64-bit). There is a webpage http://www3.winsystem.org/monitor/webmonitor.php that displays some streaming text information as people transmit on their amateur radios. Is it somehow possible to capture that information stream in real-time?

My intent is to use a shell script for further processing.

Thank you.

Under about:preferences#privacy there is a section 'Cookies and Site Data'. I have my settings set to CUSTOM and block all cookies. I then have managed my exceptions. I did a refresh resently, all that was lost. The best I can do currently is to have wordpad open and manually type each line out in my exceptions and then if needed in the future, I could copy and paste. There might be a better way that I do not know. I do know by default, the 'Managed Exceptions' under 'Cookies and Site Data' does not save if 'Refreshed'. Please address a better process and not my choice on blocking all cookies, thank you.

To all Firefox gurus:

RE: Widevine Content Decryption Module 4.10.2209.1

Have Firefox 78.10.0esr (64-bit) with PLug-in Widevine Content Decryption Module 4.10.2209.1

Have (Late-2012) Mac Mini with Mac OSX 10.9.5 (A MUST HAVE, due to it being the last version that is compatible with Nikon and other software no longer supported)

So, upgrading Mac Operating System is not an option.

And, upgrading Firefox does not seem to be an option, because 78.10.0esr is the last compatible version with the Mac 10.9.5 operating system.

The issue I am having is when I go to read the online edition of the newspaper. a long thin yellow bar appears at the top of the screen with "The Widevine Cdm has crashed. (Learn More)" and further down on the page it shows, "Video Player Error Sorry, there has been a technical error with this video stream." with an error code that relates to "Digital Rights Management" . . . It is checked in Preferences > General.

So, not sure what the problem is.

This has occurred within the past two weeks ONLY.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Thank you, in advance.

per the title, I'm looking at 2 settings:

1) network.cookie.cookieBehavior 2) network.cookie.lifetimePolicy

I'm not a web dev, but I'd like to know all I can about these 2. my goal is to never be bothered by any site about verifying my identity. I realize that you can't get rid of all of it, but some people know what they're doing and some don't. for instance, I have an AMEX account and they *never* ask me for anything because they already know everything, like google. But they are seriously a high quality bank. on the other hand, my local credit union bothers me everytime is I dump the "cache/entries" dir in win 10. Is there anyway to get what I want? thanks!

I would suggest adapting the Firefox icon to the new Big Sur design. Unfortunately, among the most common applications, Firefox is the only one that has still kept the old design (which makes Firefox seem like something out of date and not very obsolete in appearance, while in reality it is a concentrate of care and progress).

The user observes the evolution of an app from the thick icon design, so I can't explain how Firefox can still own its design (which unfortunately doesn't align with the dock). On iOS / iPadOS you have the appropriate icon, why not transfer it directly to macOS Big Sur at this point (thus unifying the interface itself)?

Nothing to say about the rest, you are fabulous and the best (I just suggest a hint of transparency in the panel bar).

With regard

I am not logged into YouTube, I don't even have an account on this browser. Youtube is not listed in the search engines. There are no YouTube search add-ons or suchlike installed.

I don't want websites to be in control of my UI. How do I stop this unwanted behaviour?

Suddenly, all the favicons for my bookmarks are lost. Maybe it's because of a HP Cleaning tool.

When picture-in-picture is invoked, it opens video small window. In the past it was a super tiny window, then after some updates it increased in size, then it went small again. The proportions of the window are also useless for most YT vids.

Basically, every time I use picture-in-picture I have to resize it. This is tirin. Is there a way to customize the start size of it like:

- set start size ...x... - remember the last size - auto-size based on the video proportions, set to 1/4 or 1/5 or 1/3, etc.

and so on.

Currently this picture in picture is more annoying then helpful because it require constant manipulation of the picture size. Annoying as hell.

First off, I tried to submit this using the "Submit Feedback" feature of the browser, but it's disabled right now, so I can't. Hopefully this works, or someone can tell me another way to request a feature from the developers.

I also know that I can use the Master Password feature to protect my passwords, but that's too extreme for my liking. I'm looking for a middle ground, where I don't have to enter my master password every time I want to use the browser, but I do want to enter it as a requirement for viewing my passwords in plain text.

Master password also seems to be blocking automatic log in on a lot of websites, so it is doubly annoying. :)

I've seen other people mention they would like this as well, so I think it would be a good thing to implement, which really wouldn't be too difficult to do.

This is a web developer question so sorry if it doesn't belong here but I've tried search everywhere else.

Is it possible to get a devices orientation from magnetic north of firefox mobile? I can get this value for every other major browser, but not FireFox Mobile. - DeviceOrientationEvent.webkitCompassHeading is not supported. - DeviceOrientationEvent.absolute is false so the alpha is not set to north. - GeolocationCoordinates.heading is not useful. - Magnetometer is not supported.

This is for a web based 3D wayfinding mobile page I'm developing for a university to help staff and students navigate campuses, and having the 3D map on the page orientate with the device really helps.

Hi, I have a ubuntu 20.04 machine, that I just installed. The installation came with firefox on it, no extensions.

When I open my browser, it's normal to start with, but then after a little bit, I need to click tabs twice for me to go to the page. It then sometimes go away for a few minutes, and then comes back.

Sometimes, it's just my mouse that triggers this behavior, but other times, it is both mouse and touchpad. This is not a problem that occurs when using other browsers or programs on my computer.

If I start firefox in safe mode, it's back to normal for a few minutes, but then the issue starts again.

Also, if I click "settings" in the top right, it quickly appears and disappears, making it really hard to access the settings
