When streaming video from any website, the screen goes blank after about 20 minutes if I don't use the mouse. How can I extend this time to 2 hours or more?

I like to view video on a variety of websites. It does not matter what video system is being used, after about 20 minutes or so, the browser goes black though the sound continues to play. I am using the latest update of Firefox, and I also use AVG as my virus protection (consistently updates). I have Windows Vista Home Premium OS. I did go into the Control Panel and lengthen the time before a screen saver came on, but this had no effect. I suspect there is a control for screen time in Mozilla but I can't figure it out.

I have Firefox 22.0 installed, I recently did a reset and now have lost the ability I had to click on the homepage button and automatically launch the Homepage in a new tab? I like this option since when I click on my homepage it doesn't override my current page. I know you can configure new tabs to open the homepage automatically ; and that you can use the Ctr+Homepage Button to open the home page in a new tab. However I would like to know what setting I can add/change to restore this missing feature.

Thanks

Hello,

I want to develop an app based on ambient light sensor.But I found that the performance of sensor is quite better than the light sensor api. For example, the sensor can get ambient light info. 100,000 times per second, but the api just can read datas 20 times per second. So, that is my question. I want to change the performance of ambient light sensor API. So, I want to develop a new ambient light sensor api. But, I have no idea about how to develop an api based on firefox os. And, I didn't even know could it be developed by individual. So, if someone knows, can you tell me ?

Thanks a lot><

I want to use some of the APIs provided by Firefox OS. But many APIs are accessible only for privileged and certified apps. Firefox OS documentation suggests (as far as i understood) that "the apps which are deployed in marketplace are privileged apps". But how can i deploy an incomplete app to the marketplace without even testing the functionality of those APIs? Is there any other way to access those APIs? Thanks in advance

When ever I click on a link, it always opens a new tab. I do not want this unless I specify it. I have tried changing the settings in tabs, but it continues. It is very annoying when I am trying to do something and continually have to close all the extra tabs I do not want.

I have tried every combination of settings possible and still it opens each and every thing I click on in a new tab. I DO NOT LIKE THIS. How to I stop it?? Nothing in your "help" files says anything useful

Hey guys,

Again I have a problem that renders using my phone as webbrowsing machine unusable. I want to turn off loading of the images as I only surf the web when I'm traveling and it takes AGES to load images, not to mention the bandwidth. Is it possible to do so in FFOS?

I have correctly set the instruction to save pinned tabs and windows when Firefox opens.

However, I would like only the tabs to open, not all the windows.

PROBLEM -- when I open a new window from a bookmark, it overwrites the pinned tab.

The new web pages that are not open should open next to the pinned tab, not overwrite it.

Thanks for your help.
