Hello SUMO Team!

  I always had this question but never really asked it. Why isn't DuckDuckGo or a more privacy based Search engine set as default? You even have to manually add Startpage and others... 

 It just hurts me how a privacy browser has the Google search engine as default after all, most people come to Firefox for privacy and Google is the opposite. Maybe one of the developers can change that?

Thank you so much for trying to help me and Stay Safe!

I used to take print to study contents offline and I almost always use Mozilla as a browser. Recently I noticed that I was unable to print a full page in a simple website. Understandable that firefox team has been busy working upon the print bugs, but the page and the website I am referring to is Purely HTML and CSS; and for some reason firefox cuts out the rest of the pages from print except for the first.(i.e) to say it prints only the top part of the page..

Though I work with Ubuntu I have crosschecked with Win8.1 and TOR version of firefox which had the same shortcoming, with the website I was referring to. However other browsers such as the Safari and Chrome seem to do fine with this regard. Kindly check for yourselves and let me know if I am going wrong somewhere. Also please Avoid recommending any add ons to accomplish the task at hand.

The thing is the website I was referring to is of very simple make and may help the team to shoot the bug if any, with an easier test case such as this.

With love and Thanks

This may be a duplicate, but I really could not find any answer that would work. As the title says, I've been trying to move Firefox tabs from the top to the bottom of the entire window. With this I mean I'd like to move only the tab titles and nothing else (no address bar, ...), and not to move it just below the bookmarks bar. I've been trying and modifying several userChrome.css files that were told to do so (in older versions), but the only thing I could obtain was to move the tab titles below the bookmarks bar, just above the web page. I'm on Arch Linux, using dwm as Window Manager. Is there any way, any css property that could help me? Thanks in advance.

The subject line say it all. I'm running version 80.0.1 (64-bit) on Ubuntu.

This appears to have only happened since the last upgrade. I regularly work with 20-30 tabs open at a time so it's very annoying, and if it wasn't for the Session History Scrounger for Firefox (https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html) I'd be totally screwed. The latest version is also cripplingly slow at times, frequently consuming 100% of CPU as shown by the 'top' command.

The Preferences / Startup / Restore previous session is ticked. Deleting sessionstore files (as per https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1185765) doesn't fix this. There are no Restore Previous Session item available anywhere (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1261571)

I have Restore Previous Session on Startup unchecked, but Firefox keeps trying to do it anyway. When I have to shut it down because it is not responding, it goes to the bad page when I start it again and gets stuck again. I just got the "We are having trouble restoring your previous session" page, so at least I have a choice now, but why is it trying to restore the previous session when I have the option unchecked?

When i am hovering over the elements of a table where i :hover applied, the cells are growing non-stop and the size is not restoring if i stop hovering. The same happens, if i hover over the firefox inspector where the html code is shown.

With the same code in Opera, it is not happening.

Hello,

I am running Firefox on my Windows 10 desktop, where I have many bookmarks. I am now also using Firefox on a laptop running Linux (Kubuntu) and would like to sync it with the desktop, so that all my bookmarks are available on the Linux laptop. I have set up Sync settings, and clicked on Sync Now; then when I hover mouse on the Sync Now button it says "Last sync: 5 seconds ago". But nothing changes on the laptop -- no added bookmarks. I must be missing something, can you help? Many thanks.

When I view the blitzortung.org (live lightning map) website I do not hear any sounds associated with the lightning strikes. The normal sound is a very short duration "click". The sound is present when using other browsers but I really hate using Chromium (don't like Google). I am running Debian Linus 10 and I nominally use Firefox ESR. I have downloaded the regular Firefox and the problem occurs with Firefox 80 as well as with ESR 68.12.0.

By opening the PulseAudio mixer while the blitzortung site is opened I have observed that there is a brief flash of the AudioIPC server that coincides with the lightning strike "clicks". My guess is that the AudioIPC server response time is the issue.

Is there any way to get around this issue.

Sound works fine for every other web site.

Urdu words are broken on `Firefox` (`version 80`) and `ubuntu 20.04` on Facebook and main search window (They are alright in wikipedia). Chromium and Chrome are rendering them properly.

I changed the font settings in firefox and selected the same fonts as they were in Chrome but it didn't solved my issue. I've also installed and used Nafees font package as indicated [here](https://askubuntu.com/a/542683/864585). It corrected the shape of characters but words are still broken. Similar [thread](https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=222388) on `linuxmint` forum provided an answer. It uses same fonts as that of chromium but there's an extra option of `"Text encoding for legacy content"` and uses Arabic in that. I can't find this option in my version of mozilla (I'm attaching picture of option available in my mozilla?


Can someone please suggest a solution or can help me to find the option `"Text encoding for legacy content"`.

Hello! I have recently installed Xubuntu Focal Fossa, and noticed that Firefox became slow along the way. At first, I didn't know what was the reason, but now, after having purged it and reinstalled it again for the second time, I am pretty sure that it is disabling the title bar which is causing the problem. Enabling it again and restarting the browser makes everything smooth once more. Is there a solution to this? Thank you very much!

Firefox relay isn't working at all. I wanted to test the service, so I created a ProtonMail and PayPal account to give it a shot. I set up my newly created ProtonMail as my primary e-mail address on my Firefox account, so that relay forwards e-mails to that address. I then created a PayPal account using one of relay's e-mails. That went no issues. Then when PayPal asked me to confirm my e-mail address, things went south. Despite relay's counter of "forwarded e-mails" going up, nothing was showing up on my ProtonMail inbox. I checked on my previous e-mail and still nothing. I saw in the details of the relay e-mail that it was indeed supposed to be forwarding mails to the ProtonMail address, but it wasn't working at all. This isn't a problem with PayPal nor ProtonMail. I received Firefox's e-mails asking me to confirm the primary e-mail change, so ProtonMail is working. Furthermore, when PayPal sends me confirmation e-mails, the counter in relay goes up, so PayPal is sending them and relay is receiving them, but they ain't coming into my ProtonMail inbox... nor spam. Solutions?

Even though Firefox 80 and 81 release notes doesn't say anything, many websites stated that hardware acceleration on Linux X11 was introduced in Firefox 80, but disabled by default, while it was enabled by default in Firefox 81.

This is what I see in my about:config and, honestly, it's definitely unclear (using Firefox 81, of course):

HW_COMPOSITING available by default / blocked by env: Acceleration blocked by platform OPENGL_COMPOSITING unavailable by default: Hardware compositing is disabled WEBRENDER opt-in by default: WebRender is an opt-in feature WEBRENDER_QUALIFIED available by default / denied by env: Not on allowlist WEBRENDER_COMPOSITOR disabled by default: Disabled by default WEBRENDER_ANGLE opt-in by default: WebRender ANGLE is an opt-in feature WEBRENDER_DCOMP_PRESENT opt-in by default: WebRender DirectComposition is an opt-in feature OMTP available by default WEBGPU disabled by default: Disabled by default / blocked by runtime: WebGPU can only be enabled in nightly

What should I understand from this? Sounds like it's all DISABLED on my system (Linux Mint 18.3, based on Ubuntu 16.04, Intel Haswell integrated GPU). Why!?

Also, what is the right way to enable some hardware acceleration now? OpenGL, WebRender, FFMPEG/VAAPI... it's a real mess. Until some versions ago, I simply used layers.acceleration.force-enabled=true and this enabled OpenGL hardware compositing. But what is the right way to do it now?

Why can't Firefox developers simply add an option in Preferences to enable or disable hardware acceleration!? The only current option "use hardware acceleration when available" doesn't mean anything. I have been using OpenGL hardware compositing with layers.acceleration.force-enabled=true for years with no issues at all, yet Firefox always decided that I should not use any kind of hardware acceleration on my system... Quite disappointing.
