Why doesn't firefox seem to consider the --window-size command-line parameter on Ubuntu ?

Please note that my question is not about preserving preferences. I've searched and found many Q&A threads on preference preservation, but I don't think that is my problem or issue.

What I'd like to do is to make some Ubuntu desktop menu shortcuts to launch specific web-based apps, in individual windows (I suppose separate instances and new-window) of specific size, with a given specific URL, hopefully with it's own icon, sort-of replacement of desktop apps. So in the Desktop menu I should be able to see 'Google Meet' (for instance) as an application with it's own icon, but clicking it launches Firefox with Google Meet's URL, and a window that is just 800x600 in size.

However, when I try to launch windows on Ubuntu MATE (also tried Lubuntu, and standard Ubuntu... all 20.04), firefox seems to ignore --window-size command line parameter, and all new windows are of exactly same size, which is the default size apparently, ignoring the command-line parameter. What gives ? How can I do what I am trying to as explained above (from firefox standpoint... I know how to create Ubuntu .desktop file etc.).

cheers, B

None of these discuss whether users should address lesser-known problems with Youtube recommendations, such as when they recommend seizure triggers which lack seizure warnings.

I want to use a local html file as my new tab page. Currently there is no easy way to do this as far as I can tell.

Firefox at some point has removed the in-built option to set the new tab as a local file. Setting the home page as a local file is possible. But setting the new tab as either home (note, not 'Firefox Home') or explicitly the local file is not an option (see attached image).

Previous forum posts point toward New Tab Override extension. However, in recent releases, add-ons cannot offer a work around as Firefox no longer allows add-ons to access local files. In the image attached, New Tab Override extension shows that it cannot use a local file as the new tab. It can however take a file and store it somewhere it has control over. This means every time I edit the local file, I need to manually re-upload this to the extension in each instance of Firefox. It is no longer a good option.

I am sure I used this feature not too long ago and it feels like a very simple thing. I am sure I must have missed some setting or option. Any help achieving this would be greatly appreciated.

I am on Firefox Dev edition 81. When navigating a plain HTML form with the keyboard, the spacebar does not check radio or checkbox inputs.

This is the page I'm using for testing: http://fyvr.net/a11y/spacebar-action.html

When I test the same page in Firefox 80, the spacebar behaves as expected.

Appreciate any help!

I have just upgraded from 68.12 to 78.2.2. My add-ons are still installed (and apparently running) but their effects are not active (e.g. Account Colors installed but my colors are gone).

I cannot find the add-on settings either... Not under general settings, not in the add-on manager, not in "customize", not in tools...

Thanks for the tips!

When you use the FileLink feature the link created is visually huge and very, very ugly to see. And if you need more than one link it's even worse, obviously. It's clear that the developers didn't put any attention to the aesthetic component in that thing. Is there a way to change that horrible html code? Maybe in the code somewhere?

I have mails to several different people with different content, but (exactly) the same Subject line. When I open one of these mails in conversation view I ... Actual behavior: ... see all mails sorted by date, but totally mixed up by receipient/content. Example (view with mono-font): |- Mail To: Me From: Mr. A |--- Mail To: Mr A From: Me |--- Mail To: Me From: Mr. A (indenation as in the Thunderbird) |----- Mail To: Mr. B From: Me |----- Mail To: Mr. C From: Me |-------- Mail To: Me From: Mr. C |-------- Mail To: Mr. C From: Me

( You can see, that three different conversation are shown )

Intended Behavior ...would expect to show the conversation only between me and that receipient. I don't want mails to other receipients (i.e. different conversations) to be shown here.


Is there a way of setting Thunderbird up that way? Or is this maybe even a bug (Info: all recipients happen to be in the same top-level and second-level domain)?

Regards

I have 3 email accounts and one of them shows 'from Geoff 2 Smith on MC1' when I receive a msg from him, in both the In Box and in the message. If I reply to him it is sent to the correct address (eg Geoff@Smith.net.xx)

I suspect that I have been responsible for entering something like 'Geoff 2 Smith on MC1' in some field in settings ... but where ? It all works as far as sending a msg to the correct person, but is terribly untidy and frustrating.

I'd like to create a filter that runs at regular intervals to move all messages in one folder (not the Inbox) to another folder -- but don't see a way to do it.

The interval can be most anything, such as once a day, every few minutes, or when getting new messages. The key requirements are that it run regularly and act on a specific folder only.

I found some add-ons that might work, but didn't find one that works with Thunderbird 68.12.0.

After following the accepted answer in this question I tried changing the boolean values of the two variables:

  1. network.protocol-handler.warn-external.http [From False to True]
  2. network.protocol-handler.warn-external.https [From False to True]

And then when trying to open a link I selected the browser that I wished and the link opened normally.

But afterwards no link was opening in no browser. I tried resetting those variables to the initial state but still nothing happens.

How can I reset the editor or what should I do to fix this problem?
