For years I have been using Firefox. If I clicked on a hyperlink in any of my programs, Outlook messages, websites etc, Firefox opened a new tab. That behaviour has suddenly stopped for websites including this one occasionally. It seems to still work for Outlook. Has Firefox changed its policy?

The advice on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283295 is to edit browser.link.open_newwindow (3) 1:current tab; 2:new window; 3:new tab; But that is already set to 3.

What other settings might work? And why has this been changed?

Firefox is my default browser on a Windows 10 OS. Until about a week ago, my Last Pass extension was always there when I needed it. Now the icon is initially grayed out and I have to manually enter my password each time I open Firefox. I checked the settings and can see no reason for the change.

Hi

When using addons such as "Enhancer for Youtube" (with the h264 option on) or "h264ify", after watching videos for a while, they start loading with a visual glitch that fixes itself after some seconds. It looks like if the image was blackwashed. It doesn't happen if I disable those addons, but videos don't look as good without them.

Example of the glitch

Any ideas of why it happens?

unable to see cast option on few websites like most websites. I tried to install the fx_cast option where I can see the cast icon now, but when I play youtube videos and click on cast button (fx_cast), its not detecting my google chromecast. Google chromecast is detected in edge and chrome browsers, but why is my TV not detected in firefox. Like I cannot see the cast icon on many websites where I see the cast icon on edge and chrome browsers, the icon itself is missing in many websites. Please make sure the wireless TV is atleast detected in firefox browser. I have tried so many changes and it does not detect my wireless tv or does not show my chromecast tv signal. Something is wrong with your browser, its not working fine. I have enabled the flag casting in the browser about:config as well. Appreciate it if you can please fix it asap as the streaming is abs fine in firefox browser and the same website runs slow in chrome and edge, which is why I need to use firefox to cast to my tv. Appreciate your help in this regards.

Thanks Manu

no ryme or reason that i have found. not a continuous issue, works normal 3 hours, next minute boom takes off immediately to bottom, if i reverse direction action will stop, then i drag bar back upward where it took off. I have replaced batteries in mouse thinking low voltage, not this issue, on-screen cursor will stop/n start or to me acts like too many other background apps running using all bandwidth or ram = low batt voltage =replace batt problem solved. scrolling issue does seem to happen more often in overnight hours, hard to say definitively, MS is no help, after reading 9 pg. of community scrolling issues mine is diff. no issues of randomly, this has been happening for awhile 2yrs maybe more. its the random part that confuses me, i gone threw all mouse settings on/off n firefox, windows, HP, no fix, no error, very odd, i have changed wireless mouses, i dont think i've tried a corded one, after this i will, just gotta find it. HP laptop; Gear Head MPT3200RED mouse;HDMI cord to 42" Sanyo LED TV; ANKER USB w/4 xtra slots; I never touch laptop lid is closed all time, multiple screen switch on. Its very annoying only one indention roll of wheel, one line selected in win settings, mouse receiver plugged into laptop which is approximately 6 ft. away max. there will be days works perfectly normal, n then this evening started again, probly been week maybe, i'm gonna start keeping track of every factor i can think off date, time, website, tabs active, extension s on/active eg. just now tubi going threw my list which is very long page, 6 dvd picture lines down boom takes off just caught it around line 20 outta 150 lines maybe, heres thot, internet access threw verizon hotspot using tether hi speed cable connected to Galaxy S9, if web page not fully loaded thats when action starts, once it starts doesnt matter then random part kicks in, i can restart cpu, or disconnect S9 for minute , sometimes that helps, but not always. oh. i also use onscreen keyboard to type...suks...this Q has taken over hour to type as i click one letter at a time to spell words, my hand n index finger cramping. any thots you can think of wud be most appreciated , i'll do my best at documenting incidents , thnx vic

Hi All- I am in charge of deploying Firefox ESR to my company and trying to get it to silently auto update on it's on with user interaction. We have policies in place (GPO) that prevent it at this point. I need some guidance on whether I should use just GPOs to manage this or should I go the route of the .cfg file? If someone has a step by step on how to best achieve this I would appreciate it. I am currently using the .msi installer.

Here is settings in an old .cfg file that I am testing with:

lockPref("app.update.mode", 1); lockPref("app.update.service.enabled", true); lockPref("extensions.update.enabled", false); lockPref("extensions.update.autoUpdateEnabled", false);

// Set default homepage - users can change // Requires a complex preference defaultPref("browser.startup.homepage","data:text/plain,browser.startup.homepage=http://workday");

// Don't ask to install the Flash plugin lockPref("plugins.notifyMissingFlash", false);

// Disable Search Engine automatic updates lockPref("browser.search.update", false);

//Disable telemetry lockPref("toolkit.telemetry.prompted", 2); lockPref("toolkit.telemetry.rejected", true); lockPref("toolkit.telemetry.enabled", false);

// Disable health reporter lockPref("datareporting.healthreport.service.enabled", false); lockPref("datareporting.healthreport.logging.consoleEnabled", false); lockPref("datareporting.healthreport.uploadEnabled", false);

// Disable all data upload (Telemetry and FHR) lockPref("datareporting.policy.dataSubmissionEnabled", false);

// Disable crash reporter lockPref("toolkit.crashreporter.enabled", false); Components.classes["@mozilla.org/toolkit/crash-reporter;1"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsICrashReporter).submitReports = false;

// Don't show WhatsNew on first run after every update pref("browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone","ignore");

// Don't show 'know your rights' on first run pref("browser.rights.3.shown", true);

Hello Team,

Firefox does not play well with how you customize keyboard shortcuts on Mac i.e. Go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts.

By default - Move Cursor to Address Bar - Cmd+L Bookmark this Page - Cmd+D

I would like to switch these two shortcuts but there does not seem to be any way. Please help me out.

Thanks, Naman
