I am setting up a Surface 6 to replace a Surface 3 that has developed ailments. This is a problem that I found with the S3 and found a simple fix but was not smart enough to keep my notes. So now I get to solve it again.

With a web site displayed like cnn.com where there is a link at the top (CNN logo) there is a problem when a drop-down list of bookmarks covers that logo/link. When I click on a bookmark with the Surface pen, the click event goes instead to the page "underneath" the drop-down list and I go zooming off to that link instead of to the bookmarked link that I want.

I see this when using the Surface pen, not with a conventional mouse. The tablet is running in normal screen mode, not in tablet mode.

My recollection is that the fix was as simple as checking or unchecking a box but I can find nothing about it now and have no clue where the box might have been.

I have not been able to stop or limit multiple processes in Firefox usign the recommended actions. These include: browser.tabs.remote.autostart set to false Content Process Limit set to 1

These solutions have failed in Firefox 68.9.0esr (32-bit), Firefox 77.0.1 run under Windows 7 Professional 32bit, and now Firefox 78.0.1 (32-bit) running under Windows 7 Professional.

Why is there no updated solution? Why is Firefox unresponsive?

I recently switched from chrome to firefox. Normally I receive notifications of texts/imessages and calls in the top right corner of my screen even when I am watching videos in full screen; however, after switching to firefox I have noticed that sometimes I do not receive the notifications if I am in full screen video mode. This is causing me to miss some important messages. Is there a way to ensure that notifications such as imessages display even while watching videos in full screen?

I use roboform and, I guess Firefox, puts the roboform toolbar at the bottom of the screen - frequently there is no option to scroll the screen up and I cannot read what is on the bottom of the screen unless I disable the roboform toolbar, read the line or two I am missing and then reenable the roboform toolbar - not a huge deal but sort of a pain in the neck - any way around that? Thanks in advance for any help.

After upgrading to Firefox 68.6.0esr, when we open a Japanese file with [File]->[Open], it becomes garbled and unreadable. Before upgrading, we could read the Japanese file. This file is a plain text file and the character code is ISO-2022-JP. The character code is not specified in the file. I tried to change the character code with Text Encoding menu of Firefox, but the menu is grayed out and we cannot select it. It seems that files with character codes UTF and EUC can be displayed without problems. Is there a way to correctly display a Japanese file in which no character code is specified?

Hi I have 3 Samsung devices, Tablet A6, Samsung S5 and Samsung S9 with settings Browser language: System default. On all devices except from Samsung S9, Firefox follows language default settings on the device. Device language english with norwegian keyboard. On my S9, english keyboard is showing english even I change the language of the browser to Norwegian. All other apps on my S9, I have english version with norwegian keyboard. And I have compared the settings for Firefox and they are the same for all my other devices and are up to date eith the latest version. This problem appeared recently!

This is frustrating that I'm not able to use Firefox on my S9 as I can on my other devices.

Looking forward to have an solution on this problem.

Firefox on Windows - Trackers Identified vs Protection Dashboard Issues

There are two issues (or confusion) concerning tracker notifications on Firefox for Windows. Recently after a FF update, I noticed, when opening a URL link, a small pop up window, lower right hand side would open listing the trackers associated with that page. Most are lined out and a few are not (depends on the page). Then the pop up window goes away.

First issue: How do you make that pop up stay open so that you can read the information it is displaying? How can you recall the pop up, if you need to? What does lined out mean vs. not lined out? Obviously, I can take a guess here but it would be nice to have an official reference or explanation.

Second Issue: I would expect that the Safe Protection Dashboard would be in agreement with the info displayed in that tracker pop up window. It does not. Open a URL, the tracker pop up window opens and lists, for example: 8 trackers, 6 of which are lined out, 2 are not. Go to the Safe Protection dashboard and it ALWAYS says "No trackers know to Firefox were detected on this page." --> Well, something ain't right here. These two tracker status indicators should be in agreement. And, just in case, they don't have to be in agreement, then there should be some explanation as to why there are different results.

Thank you for a great product and the attention to detail.

When a routine Firefox update happens on the first restart I will get "pest" screens, a browser tab, one in particular is for Ant video downloader but there are others, all related to add-ons I have installed. These are a pain in their own right but they also stop Restore Previous Session from working.

I can't change output device in GoogleMeet. FF just uses the system default device though I have several.

I found a report https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1473070 It perfectly describes my situation and it was closed due to closure of https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=934425

I guess the problem had to be solved 2 years ago, but I still encounter it.

Did I miss something? Should I somehow additionally configure my FF?

I used to scan prints on my Brother printer/scanner (MFC-9330CDW) and download them to folders on my computer. In the past I was able to download the scans (pdfs) to any folder on my desktop. Now I am unable to do that. I would like to be able to correct that issue, because I use the scanning to save printed references for genealogical research. Please let me know how to get it back to the way it was, it is too complex and cumbersome the way it is now. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

I have firefox pinned to my taskbar. Whenever I right click firefox and open private tab, the private window opens, but isn't selected, and is the last program in my alt tab window, so I can't start typing immediately. Also, sometimes it opens a lot of private tabs in sequence.
