I have a Firefox account but now it is requiring me to sync to other devices in order to update Firefox. I have zero Other Devices, no smartphone or personal computer, just my office computer on campus. Does having no additional devices mean that I will never be able to Update Firefox anymore? When I try to install Update it says it needs to install Helper but when I enter Password it says NO, except that that IS the Password that signs me into my Firefox account, but that account sign-in then wants me to Sync Other Devices which I can't do since I have no other device. So it's kind of a hopeless circle...

Last school year I could Update no problem, but then in March our buildings were all closed for Covid and only now am I getting around to trying to Update again.

(I'm a Senior Citizen visually impaired musical accompanist for Theatre and Dance, not computer-oriented in general, just when I'm on campus)

And although I posted this Q at 1:09 pm Eastern Time here where I live, it says I posted it at 10:09 am? Why would it show Pacific Time?

Every time I start Firefox with a new profile, despite trying in several ways to make this not happen, Firefox automatically makes a series of requests to URL's and will retry them repeatedly when those requests fail.

``` GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 POST https://shavar.services.mozilla.com/downloads?client=Firefox&appver=60.2&pver=2.2 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 POST https://shavar.services.mozilla.com/downloads?client=Firefox&appver=60.2&pver=2.2 ... (and so on) ```

I am trying to make this not happen. I'm ideally looking for a setup where Firefox will make no requests at all without me explicitly telling it to but just eliminating the two requests above would be a great start!

Here's what I've tried so far:

1. Uncheck "Provide search suggestions" in `about:preferences#search`

2. I've followed these instructions --- https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections

2. Here are a combination of select settings from my `user.js` preferences file that I put in to place before opening Firefox in my attempts to stop this. Some of these may or may not be relevant but I'm including them so you have some idea what I've tried: ``` user_pref("app.update.enabled", false); user_pref("browser.tabs.crashReporting.sendReport", false); user_pref("browser.crashReports.unsubmittedCheck.enabled", false) user_pref("browser.search.update", false); user_pref("browser.search.suggest.enabled", false); user_pref("extensions.systemAddon.update.enabled", false); user_pref("extensions.update.enabled", false); user_pref("browser.safebrowsing.downloads.remote.enabled", false); user_pref('browser.search.geoSpecificDefaults.url', ); user_pref('media.gmp-manager.url', ); user_pref('browser.safebrowsing.provider.mozilla.updateURL', ); user_pref('browser.safebrowsing.provider.mozilla.gethashURL', ) user_pref('browser.search.cohort', ); user_pref("services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.urlbar.suggest.searches", false); ``` Any ideas?

When I select a portion of text, right-click with the mouse and choose "Search Google for ...", Firefox opens the result in a new tab, but I would like to open it in a new window. I already have the option to open links in new Windows in the settings. Is there a way to open search results in a new window?

Hi,

I found this problem: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1060134 . However, the link is broken.

Is there a way to find the number of tabs I have open with the latest edition of Firefox? Per window and overall would both be interesting numbers for me because I have windows by category, sort of.

Hi, When I take a screenshot in Firefox Developer Edition (67, mac), "Save visible" > Download, gives me a .png screenshot, whereas "Save full page" > Download, gives me a .jpg screenshot. (A Page with pictures). Taking a screenshot of this page, "Save full page" > Download, gives me a .png screenshot.

Why this inconsistency? I don’t like this functionality being "smart", I just need a screenshot in .png, with and without pictures in the page.

My church livestreams its 1100 service. whatever system they use provides streams of different qualities. Access the stream and it starts at HiQ. A text line at the lower left offers Switch to Lower Quality. Click it and it seems to do so and the text line now offers to switch ot Higher Quality. Personally I see little difference in the video.

The problem is with the sound. When it first starts (in the HiQ mode) there is normally sort of a little echo in the sound. Like it was coming from the bottom of a barrel. Click on the video and it pauses ... but the sound continues ... without the echo. Click the video again and the video resumes ... but now there is a measureable gap in the sound. You will hear a phrase and some time later you will hear the phrase again. The gap appears proportional to the amount of time the HiQ video was paused. Switch to LoQ and there is no echo/sound lag.

A friend who knows more about streaming than I says it seems to be playing both sound streams. I haven't found any way to control the two sound streams independently.

This effect is true in both Firefox and Chrome. I work under Windows 10. I borrowed a Macbook. Firefox and Chrome had the same problem on it. Safari, on the other hand, did not have the audio problem.

Also, all of this is true if you go to our website, click the button to go to the live stream, and click in. If, however, you go to our Facebook page, find the link there, and click in, there appears to be no sound problem.

If anyone is interested in witnessing this, good luck, the stream only exists from 1100 AM EDT to 1200 on Sunday mornings. Go to http://effortchurch.org. On the first screen are 4 buttons. The right hand one takes you to the live stream. Click on the picture to start the stream.

If anyone has any suggestions on diagnosing this, I would appreciate hearing them.

When I call Jupyter Notebook from the Windows startmenu, a URL is opened in the browser and this URL is either in the form of "file:///C:/Users/bharc/AppData/Roaming/jupyter/runtime/nbserver-9708-open.html" or " http://localhost:8888/?token=9e44d74362b27f585da8b84f1ed842044882960bd0894ac6" Plugging in either of those should open the Jupyter notebook homepage. By default, the first URL is loaded in firefox but it opens a broken homepage with a number of page elements being not loaded properly. When I plug the second URL firefox renders the jupyter notebook home page properly. This bug however doesn't exist in other browsers like Edge and Chrome. I've tried manually pasting these links in the other browsers and both of them open the page correctly. I've also tried to clear all cookies and cache but it is still the same. I'm running Firefox 67 beta and I've only started noticing this bug in the newer version.

Acer Switch Alpha 12

System Model Switch SA5-271

Windows 10

Version 10.0.15063 Build 15063

Firefox Version 67.0b10

& Versions 56.0, through 57.0.

60-70% of links are effected.



When pressing and holding on a weblink it is supposed to preform a right click and show the context menu.

In reality it just opens the link.

No context menu.



ui.click_hold_context_menus is set to True.

Firefox has been refreshed.

Firefox has been re-installed.

Multiple versions tested.

This issue appears in safemode.

This issue does not appear in IE11.

It is firefox specific.



Windows is clearly registering a right click because the square box appears.

In other parts of windows the context menu opens flawlessly.



Help is appreciated.

I've installed a custom CA certificate and made sure the trust was updated and added the certificate to Apache.

For some reason Firefox doesn't want to accept it, even after I added the name of the domain directly in the alt_names without a wildcard (Hence the "imesa.alpha.kira" as the last record, which is a test)

This works in Chrome without any issues, and used to work in Linux Mint 18.3 without issues (So older version of Firefox about a year ago).

I've attached some screenshots to what I'm doing, this is all on a local server, but added ########### to location info in the cert config, this isn't normally part of it.

Adding the imesa.alpha.kira domain to the common name does work, but I need multiple domains to work.

I'm at a loss as to what could be causing this at this point. Any help is appreciated.
