Dear Sir, I have problems browsing some specific sites like presstv.ir Last Linux update helped to remove this issue but recent Firefox update brought back the issue. I have therefore avoid latest Firefox update on my other computers but still want to highlight the issue. I also wonder if this has anything to do with the restrictions US government has put on such sites belonging to the government of Iran?

There is not "Usability" topic. Hence selected "Other".

Containers are one of those features that I use almost in every Firefox session. It clearly segregates my office and personal work. I am asking for a feature, that could already be there somewhere in the advanced configuration (about:config).

Before asking let me set the context. Before containers, I used profiles to separate my work. But the disadvantage of profiles is that the cache, auto-fill, history all those convenient features are not the same everywhere. But the advantage of profiles is that every shortcut key, clicking of link would open in the same work area profile. I don't have to open context menu and select a profile each time.

"Container Windows" could be such a feature which is best of both worlds. I am not aware if this is already there. At least the feature is not obviously visible. There is a feature in "multi-container plugin" which can move all the tabs belonging to a container to a separate window. if we add a feature, in this plugin or Firefox core, to bind a particular window to just one container then it can bring all the goodness of "profiles" and we can still use all the features of "containers".

1. Clicking a link in other application would open the default container (no-container) window 2. Control+Click, by default, opens tab in a bound container window, and hence in the same container 3. Context menu in all windows (bound and unbound) still gives an option to open tab in any container

Please let me know how to do this, if this is already implemented. Or tell me where to raise this feature request.

I am not able to download any kind of file, from any kind of website to my disk. I am able to select open on the download dialog, and this will open the file and save it to the temp directory firefox uses for this function, but this does not save the files to disk/the download folder like I want to. I am unable to "Save image as..." as well, since this is considered a download. There is no record of these downloads even being attempted in the download history.

This problem occurred Oct 24, 2020 Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time (3 weeks after daylight savings time came into effect here). The operating system time is correct. I have cleared the cache several times, rebooted and shut down overnight.

A forum site is displaying the correct times. A site displaying weather information uses the correct time; I loaded it just after 3am and the first time it displayed was 6am as expected.

1. A TV guide normally highlights in red programs currently showing; at present it shows programs showing one hour previously. In Google-Chrome no programs are highlighted. I have removed the cookies and that has made no difference. 2. Facebook.com times are one hour late, both the time of posts in the newsfeed and times of notifications.

Hi,

first of all thank you all in the community for your amazing work on Firefox!


I have cloned my $HOME (including ./.mozilla/firefox/) to another Linux device.

Now I realize that changing the Firefox Sync device name on the new device would also change it for the other device when checking "Connected Services" https://accounts.firefox.com/settings. I also can only see the new device name when using "Send to device" from any device.

I guess I have to unlink my new device and somehow assign it a new device ID for Firefox Sync to recognize the new device. How can I do that?

Hi, thanks a lot in advance and sorry to bother. :)

I have a couple of desktop/laptop devices synced with the same account. When I make a backup/export of my bookmarks in each device (.json/.html files) the checksums of those files don't coincide between devices. Nevertheless, if I open the exported HTMLs in Firefox and save them as Text Files, the resultant files have all the same checksum (sha256sum), i.e., are all the same.

Is this how it is supposed to be? Or should my bookmarks JSON/HTML files be exactly the same in all devices and something is wrong?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Hi, wonderful crew I have this annoying issue: when I want to print a page and I open the Print menu from the "hamburger" button, the preview open but on the printer list I can see only the PDF printer, not my default printer or any other printer. Also if I click on the link "Print thru the system printer window" I see only "Print on file" and "Print on LPR" I tried the same on Chomium and there I can see my default printer My system is a Ubuntu desktop 22.04 recently updated from 20.04 LTS Thank for your work

The web pages of https://www.heise.de serve as an example of the error. The publisher's main page shows the article images, while the article itself is without an image. In other browsers, Chrome and Opera, the images are visible in the articles. The error has been occurring for a few days, the time cannot be specified exactly. I have already turned off the ad blocker for heise.de without success. An update to FF86 was unsuccessful. A check of the FF settings did not bring any results either. Websites from other publishers e.g. www.techstage.de are not affected as far as I know.

In addition, the title bar always shows the context Login, although I am logged in. On some websites, e.g. http://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de, the login generates an error.

Hi forum The email provider for my preferred secondary email address uses greylisting. It works, very well. The confirming email from firefox is sent from a random amazon address, which gets greylisted as intended. There's a 5 minute limit for entering the confirmation code, but greylisting slows delivery of the email to around 15 minutes, waiting for the amazon sending server to try multiple times. Is there another way to update the secondary email address ?

The 89.0 update is great, but I'm disappointed by the new homepage (see the picture). The font is too small, and if I scale the page, the lower row doesn't fit to the screen. A good option would be to remove the useless huge Firefox logo in the middle of the page and to shift the search bar up. Then I could just scale the page. Is there a way to do it?

Changing fonts on every page is not a satisfying solution, I only want to fix the homepage.

I don't know if its an issue with the theme or Firefox itself (I think it's Firefox because it already happened on previous versions), but when I open certain number of tabs, or a tab with certain characteristics that I don't know, the whole row of tabs increases its height. And it annoys me. Thanks beforehand!
