not sure if this started with firefox 74 or not. But whenever I make phone calls in Gmail, I no longer get the permission popup asking for access to my microphone. The padlock in the address bar shows no attempt for permissions to the microphone. My microphone permissions under Options doesn't list any sites to allow or block. I even tried doing a firefox refresh. Still, gmail does not prompt at all for microphone permissions, but other sites, (like voice.google.com) work fine. Also, I get no microphone in the call itself - so it isn't just that it isn't prompting because it remembered a setting. The gmail site doesn't reflect any microphone access at all when making a call and doesn't work.

I am running Firefox 74.0 (64-bit). Starting yesterday, whenever I start a new tab, the cursor is placed in the address bar. I have no new-tab-related addons. I have ff set to open new tabs with ff home. I don't recall if there was an update yesterday, and I didn't make any changes.

I tried clearing my cache, and that didn't work.

I see this discussion from a few years ago (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1174932), but it describes the behavior as "normal." This may be, but for me, the behavior is abnormal, in that it didn't do that for many years, and suddenly started doing that yesterday. How to make it stop? When I open a new tab, I'd like the page to be open and neutral, with nothing selected, chosen, or acted upon. Thanks!

Synchronizing/combining bookmarks and feeds (Livemarks) on 2 machines both w/ Firefox (Win10)

I have 2 machines, both Firefox 74 and Win10. On one, there are tons of "normal" bookmarks. On the other, there are tons of feeds imported from an opml file (from another source) using the Livemarks add-on. The importation of the opml file destroyed all "normal" bookmarks on the one machine, basically except for those on the Bookmarks Toolbar. The other machine has "normal" bookmarks, but no feeds. Is there a way to combine the two, such that I have both: all my "normal" bookmarks and my feeds (via Livemarks) on both machines? I still have the opml file I used to import, as well as exported json and html files from both machines. Thanks

I'm running Firefox v74.0 on Windows 10 v1903 with all the latest security updates. My homepage is www.yahoo.com. When I start Firefox by double-clicking the icon on my desktop it opens the homepage correctly. When I start it by clicking the Firefox icon on my taskbar, the main window of Firefox remains blank and it won't open the homepage until I click the homepage icon in the upper left of the Firefox screen. I have already deleted the icon on the taskbar and replaced it by dragging the icon from the desktop back to the taskbar.

After the last (partial - see attachment) update to 74.0 (64 bit) on 3/13/2020 days ago, I am experiencing slow responses from FF for opening websites or any searches. When I say slow, I mean minutes... you can see 'working' indicator on the tab going back and forth, and the bottom L of the browser you see 'Waiting for...." > You will see in one attachment that that it says "Status: Update could not be installed (patch apply failed). However, in the "About" page (attachment 2) its says its up to date with v 74.0. > When I open FF, it opens quickly to my 'Home' page with the most used sites. But when I click on any of these, then its just takes forever to open any oft them - including google search. Same happens if I type a URL in the address bar. > I have already reinstalled it and it works fine until the computer (desktop) goes to sleep. Then back to the same. So the only way to get back to normal is a 'restart' the computer. > When I first experienced a few days age, I thought maybe it was heavy internet traffic due to the ongoing issues, but since a restart corrects it every time, then I realized its and FF issue, not an internet issue.

This is the first time I experience this with FF in the many years I've used it, and it was not happening prior to the most recent (partial) update. Any thoughts on how to address this? Thanks

Firefox "builds up" internet cache capacity to 1.0 GB fairly quick. I can easily delete it & do it about once a day. I go to about:config & change: browser.cache.disk.capacity from 1048576 to the default, which shows 256000 (kilobytes, I believe). I close Firefox & reopen. It goes back to the 1048576 KB every time. How can I "save" the default capacity? I believe that 1.0 GB is too large.

 I also notice that before I change the value, it is written in bold print & then change it to default, it is not in bold type.
 DOES ANYONE know the "answer" to my question????

Thank you

Bill Print via US Bank not printing correctly. Here is what is happening -- Log in to USBANK online bill pay, pay a bill, submit, press print button. The printed output should look very similar to the online display, it does not. Instead you get multiple lines where only 1 line should have been printed. But by disabling ALL add ons prior to logging on, the print function works correctly. Is there a solution for this problem without disabling ALL add ons? This was posted back in March, but no response. Can I get an answer to this? Thanks

I work with the latest version of Firefox and with Windows 10 on a laptop. A few weeks ago I wanted to log into the bank website and the login button didn't work anymore. I had no problems with Google Chrome or any other browser when I opened the bank site on my laptop. Also on the site "500px", opened with Firefox, I have this problem. As soon as I click on a photo, the whole site is blocked and only via the return arrows in the toolbar can I unblock the site. Also no problem with Google Chrome. The problem occurs only on my laptop (Windows 10). On my husbands laptop (Windows 7-64bit)) there's no problem at all to log into the sites trough Firefox and using the buttons. Both laptops are connected on the same LAN. Probably the problem as something to do with my laptop. Do you have a solution for this problem? Thanks in advance. With best regards, Yo

Hello,

I try to change the theme of FF to a dark mode but it will not work for some reasons. I changed it in the settings already and even changed it in the Windows settings (changed it to dark mode under "Choose your app mode") but the background of about:preferences is still not dark (I know it is working without any kind of add-ons because on the VM it works flawlessly).

I really hope someone can me help me out. Thanks in advance.

Oh and btw: I am using Windows 10 and the newest version of FF.

Sync does not work at all on mobile. Every single name and password I saved On desktop browser I got to that site and no user name and password. Not once ever. Every site I know I have name and pass too I go to on mobile nothing populates and I have to reset password, which is annoying but I do and guess what? I reset my password, enter new password and fire fox now says want to update your password? makes no sense. The user name if stored should always populate but it never does. Another thing that does not work at all with firefox. This browser has literally gone down the tubes over the last couple years and it seems firefox is getting worser and worser which makes no sense because firefox was king of the world at one point and now it seems netscape navigator is better. I refuse to believe this. Screw chrome, screw edge and screw opera, I just want my old working firefox back.

I have 74.0 (32-bit) on Windows 7, and certain js plugins are not working correctly anymore. I'm pretty sure this is a 32 bit problem only, as folks on other machines with 64 bit browsers don't seem to have the same problem. The site I'm having a problem with works okay on Chrome (32 bit), but not on Firefox.

This is a very recent problem, I'm pretty sure it has to do with the latest Firefox update for 32 bit.

The problem can be seen here: https://subs.humortimes.com/getpdf-sample.php

It's not just that website server though, it's the same on other servers.

The js pdf 'flip page' plugin is not able to display the file. It loads okay, but does not show. Getting these warning in the Inspector Console:

WebGL warning: clear: Framebuffer must be complete.
WebGL warning: drawArraysInstanced: Framebuffer must be complete.

Warning: Empty "FlateDecode" stream.

... and others.

The problem is the same on different servers, and on a Xampp local server. So, my question is: Is this a 32 bit Firefox problem only, as I suspect? And if so, what can be done about it?
