Firefox allow to disable access to canvas for lowering fingerprinting, it's cool !

But as web developer : i like to ask this access before try to using it,

Something like :

1. Do you alllow canvas ? 2. Show the browser part 3. Wait for user answer 4. It's OK : download PDF done with canvass 5. It's not OK : shown an error to user.

To avoid such situation (see screencast)

Audio was working fine until recently. Now, firefox has no audio playing on any site.

Some sites show "PLAYING" in tab, but others like YouTube don't show that notification. Even with "PLAYING", there is no audio output.

I checked Windows settings and Firefox is set up correct (and the same as it was before it stopped working), see screenshot attached. Otherwise, I restarted Firefox, tried it in troubleshoot mode, and reinstalled Firefox. No changes.

Possible system changes include: Maybe a Firefox update occured and broke the program? I installed the game Civ5 from Steam which required some Windows VS redistributibles installed.

Hello, I changed my Firefox Primary Password yesterday WHILE USING MY SECONDARY PC (as i thought my main PC was stolen).

I found my main PC today (it was not stolen). When i try to log-in it still wants me to use my old Primary password, and it is now requiring a verification code, every time I log into Firefox.

  - I cannot log-in to the Firefox account on the main computer by using my new primary password
        - but I can still log-in by using my old primary password + verification code

I can log-in the Firefox account on the secondary computer normally (by using my newly changed password) and I do not need to enter a verification code.

The log-in email address is the same on both computers.

The sync function is still working between the 2 PC's

I am very confused now, and I need to have the Firefox Primary password the same on both computers.

Your help resolving this issue will be greatly appreciated.

Thank-you, Geoff Parmelee [Email address] [Telephone number]

Importing a Forefox profile from 18.04 Ubuntu to a 22.04 Ubuntu PC

Years ago I imported a Firefox profile from Ubuntu 16.04 to a PC running 18.04. It wasn't very hard. View Hidden Folders, find the old FF profile, copy it. Then go to the 18.04 PC, delete or rename the existing profile, and paste in the profile from the 16.04 rig. Restart the PC, Firefox came up on the 18.04 PC just like it did on the 26.04 PC.

But Ubuntu is doing something different now. Firefox is inside the "snap" folder. Apparently snap is some sort of new package mgr. (?)

I found a firefox profile a few levels down inside the snap folder: Home/snap/firefox/common/.mozilla/firefox/xxxxxxxx.default

Does snap complicate things? Or can I replace the new profile on the 22.04 PC inside the snap folder with the profile that I want to use from the 18.04 PC? Just like in the past, but inside snap rather than the .firefox folder in Home?

Gap to the left of tabs when menu bar is hidden/unchecked

Hello,

I am running Firefox v101.0.1 (64-bit) on Linux (Pop!_OS, installed as a flatpak). I am using the default system theme in dark mode, though switching to the Firefox dark theme or other themes does not change anything. When I allow the Menu Bar (File, Edit, View, etc.) to be present, the browser tabs on the next line are aligned correctly, going all of the way to the left. When I uncheck the Menu Bar, however, a gap appears to the left of the tabs. I have not seen this behavior on Firefox in other environments (Debian, RHEL, Windows), and I'm wondering if there's a way I can remove that gap. I have attached screenshots showing how the tabs are aligned with and without the Menu Bar.

Thanks so much!

Firefox created a second Downloads folder/library when it opens a PDF to view in the browser.

file:///C:/Users/Name/Documents/Downloads/NightSkyNotesJan2022OrionDetail.pdf

I seem to remember finding lots of temp pdfs and other files in a temp folder under user/appdata/local or roaming and having to delete this files manually from time to time. Putting the files in an easy to find folder is a good step but my Downloads Library/folder had previously been moved to D:\Downloads via choose new target from the library properties. D drive is an internal HD, C drive is an SSD. Why didn't Firefox just use the existing Downloads library instead of creating a new one on the C drive?

Ideally, if you are viewing a pdf in a Firefox tab it would delete the file if you did not download it so it does not clog up your drives. If I know i want to keep a pdf I would save to my chosen folder and view in Acrobat instead of reading in a browser tab.

I agree with a previous post i saw requesting an option for the user to specify a temp file folder on another drive when viewing pdfs to preserve some life on the SSD boot drive.

My windows 10 pc is set to dark mode, my win 11 pc is set to dark mode, my firefox theme on both pc's is set to dark mode, my phone is on light mode. On my windows firefox which is updated on both devices the top bar will stay dark in dark mode (default firefox theme) but after certain pages it resets itself to light, is this because of my phone being on light mode and themes are syncing over? its extremley annoying and after using the debug: page to try and force darkmode i had to reset firefox due to debug causing issues, now im using an untouched firefox version and it keeps changing from dark mode to light mode!

I cannot find the answer to this issue in Norton, Windows, or Gmail, so I wondered if it's an issue with Firefox. Shortly after a Firefox upgrade, I started missing content in emails. One example is the verification code from Firefox was not showing on my computer screen when I opened the gmail from Firefox. I had to open the gmail on my iphone to view the verification code. Several emails do not show the message. Also, I am unable to just open an attachment to view now. All attachments are downloaded. This is not a problem on my other computer or iphone, but it started to be an issue on this computer recently.

Thank you

Hello. I just created a master password to protect my website passwords. However, this master password is required to start a session with Firefox. My suggestion is that you do not require the master password to start a Firefox session, only to access the passwords information, or to create and remember a login password for a new website. It is a hassle to enter the master password every time I want to use Firefox. Or should I keep firefox open the entire day?

How to edit and save messages in imap folders like in draft folder

Hi,

Can anyone suggest a solution please?

I use Thunderbird Version 101.0.1 on a Windows 10 PC. I am in England UK. All my email accounts are setup as IMAP.

I note that email messages in the 'draft' folder can be edited and the messages have an 'edit' button. This means, you can edit and save messages.

I have created folders in Thunderbird and I move messages from 'drafts folder' into these folders. Problem is I can't edit them and save them. I have to keep moving the message into 'drafts' then edit and save and move. This is inconvenient. 

I have tried various add ons but none do what i want. How can I make Thunderbird, show the 'edit' button on messages in my other folders so that I can save the message and edit it later.

Where can you suggest that Thunderbird make such an add-on.


Thank you in advance

No matter how many articles I read on how to get my passwords to save, no matter how many times I check the settings yes they're still all correct, after an update (I think) firefox no longer asks to save passwords and doesn't volunteer any information about them.

Google docs, drive problems in browser

I have been having problems with Firefox and google doc/drive interface over the past few weeks. Firefox bugs out after I begin working with google docs each session. A few specifics: 1. I typically have a few different tabs w/ different google docs open. After initially opening them, I get a 'you are not connected' message and can't work/edit the docs - yet my internet/wifi connection is fine and all other apps work. 2. Then I can't visit bookmarks or other google docs saved in my browser history. I click to open and nothing loads/tab stays blank 3. Google is also my default search engine - that won't initiate either 4. The upper right corner of google docs (where my google account/name are linked) doesn't load, and I can't click or get functionality on changing accounts or seeing what other users are in the doc

It's become very problematic - I have searched help articles and can't find anything to remedy it. Thinking of switching to chrome b/c it's causing significant work disruptions for me. Any advice?

I have a website stored in the popup exceptions. Yet every time I go to that website, Firefox blocks the popup, despite the fact that the URL/URI stored in the settings is EXACTLY the same as the URL/URI of the website being visited.

I then have to press 'allow' every time. Is there any workaround for this please ?

Also, I used to be able to download a PDF from sites directly, but now it goes to view the PDF and then I have to use the 'download' button. Surely there is a fix for this ?
