When doing a long press on an image, its title text is shown. However, when the title text is too long (e.g. for additional content in webcomics), it is not shown in full and ends with suspension points. Before the Firefox Preview upgrade, I could still read it in the source code (annoying but feasible). Can you suggest a methods to read longer title texts in the new version or should I consider other browsers?

I've started using Firefox on Mac because Chrome was ultra slow and Safari was breaking sites.

It's extremely good.

But; one thing that is really annoying me is the fact that media keys for Mac (works in Safari & Chrome) is not working for Firefox :/

Also, another minor thing, the square tabs are ugly has hell.

When I browse frequently updated websites it shows the page I saw last time I visited . When I press refresh it updates the page to the live version. It happens 100% of the time on BBC news for example since the recent big update.

This happens even if I fully quit or force quit Firefox between visits and I always close my tabs when I am done checking each site.

With the new interface the tab list slides in from the bottom of the screen but it doesn't adapt to a top aligned navigation bar. This causes a bad UX by having to travel the entire screen with your finger in order to select a tab. It doesn't help either that new tabs are stacked on the beginning (top) of the list which would only make sense when using a bottom aligned navigation bar. Rather the tab list should slide in from the top and have the tab order reversed. Is this configurable somehow? Where should I file a bug report unless it isn't?

Hi, In today world, our privacy is in others hand. Several sites takes our privacy data without knowing it. My question is although making firefox tor but overall it is about being annonymous and private on internet.

1) How to spoof google or facebook or any sites on my current location? I have found tutorial about changing things on about:config but it didnt worked, websites always find my ip and location. I dont want to show them my location or browse sites independently related to country.

2) How to hide ip on firefox when browsing site?

3) How to disable javascript for all sites except some sites? I found to disable javascript for about:config but it disable all sites, but i do not want that,I want to unblock javascript the sites we visit only.

4) Enable Tor features in firefox? I heard tor is built on firefox. If it is how can i enable tor features like ip changing, location changing without too compromising speed. I had done to use proxy but to do that i have to specifically open TOR and then only firefox works.

I want to be free, Help. Using Tor browser is not an option because i heard malicious thing on tor, so i want to stick with firefox but getting some features of Tor like (change my location, change my ip), Help!!!!!!

Hi everyone!

Since the new update of Firefox yesterday, I've encountered a problem.

Before the update, if i was on f.e. Google Mail or Instagram, and i would I would click on a link (or choose the option 'open in Firefox') it would say 'Link opened in Firefox' and the option to 'switch' to it. Since yesterday, whenever I click on a link now, it opens and immediately switches to Firefox.

Is there a way to prevent that? Thanks for your help!
