Recently my home page is blank. Each new tab opens as blank, bookmark icons are missing. I used to have a search engine when i opened Mozilla but now it's totally blank. I need to click on the bookmarks icon to open the list of bookmarks saved instead of seeing them on the toolbar. I didn't change anything and now it's all gone. I have uploaded a screenshot of my screen when I open Mozilla.

I'm running both versions of firefox on my mac by renaming the .app for nightly. However, when I click on a link on an application, it seems to default to my nightly version instead of release.

For both versions, the "default browser" setting is enabled. One thing I tried was letting chrome take the default again, and setting it from the release version after. Both versions then showed it checked again. I cannot uncheck it from the beta version.

It seems they might be reporting to the OS as the same app for this purpose.

Another thing I tried was changing the app name in it's Info.plist. Now, I see a new name in the menu bar and it shows as a distinct browser in the OS' "default browser" settings. However, it doesn't seem to solve my issue. All links still open in the Beta, even if the only one currently open is Release.


Is there a way to have it default to the normal version of firefox?

I am trying to use a <select> tag to display a color selector. So each <option> has a background color to match its displayed text:

```<select id="strokeColor" name="strokeColor" style="width: 10em;">

             <option value="black" style="background: #000000; text: #FFFFFF">

<option value="blue" style="background: #0000FF">

                     orange
             </option>

<option value="purple" style="background: #800080">

                     purple

                     #000000
             </option>
         </select>```

On Chrome this displays as expected:

https://assets-prod.sumo.prod.webservices.mozgcp.net/media/uploads/images/2024-04-18-22-02-25-eebbd5.png

But on Firefox the background colors are ignored:

https://assets-prod.sumo.prod.webservices.mozgcp.net/media/uploads/images/2024-04-18-22-02-35-bd90ee.png

How can I get Firefox to display the background colors?

Hello dear community,

I have a program that continuously monitors the download folder under Windows 11 for a specific file and retrieves it. I download this file in Firefox, but the said program gives an error.

I have noticed that when files are downloaded in FireFox, they already appear in the Downloads folder with the corresponding file extension with 0 bytes and these are then apparently swapped or merged with the .parts file.

The problem is that the mentioned program now tries to retrieve the unfinished file, which then leads to an error.

Does anyone know if it is possible to customize Firefox so that the file only appears in the download folder when the download is fully complete?

Many thanks for your help :D

Sometimes a box pops up on the screen that asks if I want to block or allow something. Sometimes I have no interest in doing either, and just want the damned dialog out of my face. The page seems to work otherwise, but the stupid browser keeps the dialog over top of things, and clicking outside of it, and hitting Esc, don't make it go away. I think those actions used to work, and I think there, sensibly, used to be a dismiss option, but that seems to be absent now. There's no sense to trying to force me to make a decision I don't want to make, and doesn't even need to be made, and I want this thing to cut it out.

Firefox seems to forget edits made to text boxes. I was reading a large pdf and adding notes to previously made text boxes. I thought I must be going crazy as I saw there was no notes I thought I had already made multiple times so I tested it. I edited a text box, scrolled a bit and continued browsing on another monitor. Checked in a minute and boom edit gone. If anyone has a solution I'd appreciate it as I have been using Firefox PDF editor for a bit and quite liked it until now.

I am not able to share website links to Google Messages using Firefox Nightly for Android, version 127.0a1 (Build #2016020495).

Steps to reproduce: open email message, tap on a link, once the link opens in the Powered by Firefox Nightly screen I tap on the sharing icon, select Google Messages, Google Messages opens but the link address is not pasted on the compose message box. Trying to manually copying and pasting the link has the same result. The only way to be able to share the link is to open the link in Firefox Nightly (the full browser) and then share it.

This happens on a Google Pixel 8 Pro using the latest Android 14 version with related updates.

When on the Princess Cruise web site looking at various cruise options, the Firefox browser will not let me open the list of excursions for the ports on the cruise that we were looking to book, but I can see them when using Google Chrome. Why won't Foxfire allow me to view the excursions - it use to allow me to see them.

Currently, when I try and open downloaded .txt files and .log files (that is, when I click on them directly from the download pop-up that appears at the top-right of the browser), Firefox inexplicably opens Aegisub on my machine as the app to use. This is in contrast to when I open it directly from within my file browser, where it opens the Kate text editor, as suggested by the default app option in the permissions of the filetype.

How do I change the apps Firefox uses to open downloaded files? I've tried going into my settings and looking at applications, but .txt and .log don't appear, so I'm not quite sure what to do.

I'm on Kubuntu 22.04.3 LTS, using the Firefox deb package.

Why are basic features like editing bookmarks not in the app. On chrome you are able to click and hold on a bookmark to select it, then click and hold on it again to move it anywhere you'd like in the folder. Also there is no "move to" option on Firefox which would make sorting much easier, it would be nice to have such a simple feature like this for convenience.
