Tonight I noticed something really weird when I tried to reply to a comment on Youtube. Initially, I tried to reply from the bell button in the notifications and soon I realized that the Spacebar was not working. I thought it might be stuck, but it was not, since it was working fine in both the address bar and the search bar. Asynchronous keys function was disabled. Then, I went to the video and tried to reply from there. Guess what! The video was being resized using the shortcuts depending on what I was typing! For example "t" changes between normal and theater mode and "i" makes it picture-in-picture. What is going on? I am sure no key is locked, i even restarted my pc and the same thing kept happening. Then, I turned it off and on and the problem was persisting. Everything works fine on other applications, just YT seems broken for some reason. I tried to type on YouTube on two other browsers and everything worked fine. I don't think it has anything to do with the windows update, since it only happens on firefox, which I don't intend to change. Is there any setting to lock/toggle the Youtube shortcuts on and off? Sorry for the length of my description and thanks a lot in advance!

Is there a way to enable gestures for page navigation. I love the Mozilla and Firefox concepts but I find it a nuisance that it takes 2 taps go back or forward a page - Menu -> Arrow. Can't I just swipe left or right for back or forward? Thanks

Just started yesterday. Unable to login to AOL webmail. Get "bad message 431 reason: request header fields too large"

Appears to be specific to Firefox, as I am able to login successfully with Brave.

FF68.9 esr. Mac 10.13.6 High Sierra

Nothing has changed on my end. No idea how to fix or if it's just something at the AOL end suddenly objecting to Firefox.

IIRC, in v60.x ESR the icon at top used to display bookmarks by default, and you could also look at history. Perhaps I'm remembering it wrong (It's the icon that looks like 3 books with the 4th leaning to the left.

In v68.8.0esr which is now installed it shows "Recent Highlights". I want to get the old behavior back. The following will remove the recent highlights (except the title "recent highlights"). But the bookmarks are not shown unless I click on Bookmarks.

#appMenu-library-recentHighlights { display: none !important; }

How do I get the old behavior back?

I know I can add an extra icon (display bookmarks menu), but I'd still need the other one to access history. Perhaps if there were a History icon and a bookmarks icon, that would do as I don't use sync, and there is already the downloads icon, and I don't need the Pocket List.

When uploading images in some web sites (such as web.whatsapp.com and others) the image is uploaded but it is blank/white, even if I visit the site with another browser I see only a blank image. When uploading to the same web site using other browser, for example Chrome, the image uploading has no issues and it is displayed correctly. I've already tried to disable the AdBlocker but nothing changes.

Greetings and thank you for your time. I am so tired of every update changing how Firefox Android handles video and audio file types ~ MIMEs. I want a permanent setting to propting us , to ask us what I want to do when we click on a video or audio link. Maybe everyone else just wants to play it. But I don't and I'm sure I'm not alone. -_-

It would be wonderful if Firefox Android would have the same answers as Firefox for desktop specifically: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-firefox-behavior-when-open-file#w_download-actions

Maybe I'm not searching correctly but I spent hours searching for a solution before posting this question. Also for previous FFA versions this question is always being asked after every update! WHEN will we as a community stop disabling the ability to control what we do with audio and video links! -_-

Please do not suggest a third-party plugin when this is an innate browser function!

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Whenever I open a new window, it starts in a certain standard size (at least in Firefox 77). In earlier versions it would always open "maximised". So for me this behaviour changed (not sure exactly in which version it changed). Since I use my browser almost always with maximised windows, I have to maximise manually all the time now, and that is inconvenient. How can I get the old behaviour back? Preferably I would be able to establish a size I like (maximised, or otherwise as big a size as I set), and then save those settings for the future. Alternatively, I would also be happy if Firefox remembers the size of the window I closed latest. Is there any way to accomplish this?

YouTube videos (both embeded and on website) seem to load (I can see thumbnails when I hover cursor over timeline) but will throw "An error occurred. Please try again later." when I click play.

Youtube debug info: "errorCode": "fmt.decode", "errorMessage": "An error occurred. Please try again later.", "wr": "GENERIC_WITHOUT_LINK"

This also happens in Private Browsing and Safe mode (addons disabled) in Firefox 75.0 and 76.0.1 (different user profiles) This issue does not occur in other browsers I have installed (Chromium, Iridium, Google C, and Pale Moon)

Everything was working fine a few hours ago, I have made no hardware, software or config changes.


EDIT: Just noticed the edit button, added a cropped screenshot of the issue.
