My Widevine CDM Plug-in just crashed! I checked my Firefox settings and it looks like the Widevine plug-in just updated late last night, and is up to date. I fear the new update might be incompatible with my Firefox 78.10.Oesr / or my OSX 10.9.5 but I'm not sure. I'm not a mac savvy person but I'm always ready to learn. Any help would be appreciated!

When I pushed the right button of the mouse to choose the shortcut of "copy link", its shortcut changed from"A" to "L". I do not know why and when this change happened. It was "A" 3 hours ago.

As I use the left hand to push the keyboard and the right hand to move the mouse, it is very inconvenient. I appreciate it if you tell me how to change the setting.

From the very start, for the last 25+ years, Right Click a link, and hit the letter W to open the link in a new window... Suddenly, with 88 Update, it is now the letter D. (while everything else in Windows is still W)

How do I get it back to [W] (Industry Standard is W)

Why did Mozilla change the letter to D?

I don't mind having to train myself to use D instead of W... I do mind that everything else still uses W, so I have to train myself to only use D in Firefox.

Hello,

since the latest update I experience problems with printing. In my store we print hundreds of little slips every day, they are the size of 1/3 of A4 format.

The webapp which prints them generates an A4 PDF, where only the top 1/3rd of the page is actually filled with information. Usually we print this via systems dialog, we have it set to print on Letter DL format, change the orientation 90 degrees and zoom to 270%, which gives us a perfect result.

As of yesterdays update, Firefox somehow changed the alignment rules, and the zoomed-in page now gets centred instead of aligned left, which completely breaks our process.

Is there any way to force left alignment? This is affecting two different machines exactly on the day of the update rollout. Changelog only says the print margins have been changed but I believe also the alignment has been affected by that.

Thx

Per title and attached image.

Why do I no longer have the option to view image in the same tab any more? I should not need a browser extension to have brought it back. This new feature is, frankly, rather annoying and I would like to have the option to have it back. Please don't tell me to modify userChrome.css because that doesn't seem to do anything anymore. I have tried on numerous occasions to use it to get rid of the obnoxious Email Image by following markup examples given on numerous forums, so I don't trust it to bring back a feature unjustly stripped from me.

Or, failing that, tell me how to get that context to open in the background. I have that option set for links, and am rather unhappy that it is ignored on this new image context and bookmarks to a lesser extent.

It has been a day since updating to this new version, and I hate it already.

I'm developing an add-on for Firefox which will take the colors from the favicon of the current tab to color bits of the tab-bar dynamically.

I'm having trouble finding out how I can modify browser CSS, for example in the Browser Tool box console, this works perfectly fine: ```const activeTab = document.querySelector('.tabbrowser-tab[selected="true"] .tab-background'); activeTab.style.background = "rgb(0, 221, 255)";```

but when inputting this same code in my add-on, it cannot query that same selector (I've given it tabs and theme permissions). This also does not work as a stylesheet.

Can anyone point me to what I need to access the browser UI DOM?

Hello, I've been able to take screenshots, one of my favorite features, and the selection to do so was located by tapping on the 3 dots in the browser bar. Today I made the selection to take a screenshot and the option was not there.

I followed the instructions from earlier posts on how to check to see if the option was True or False and in the area that showed me if it was still available. They were correct.

Is there any other reason why that choice would not be there?

Hi,

I was looking at basically entire collection of addons with different keywords and it seems like I'm still overlooking something. Everything I found, related to taking the screenshots, is based on manual click within an addon but this is NOT what I'm looking for.

Instead, what I would like to do is to define exact URL link and quantity of minutes. Then, assuming that Firefox is running, the addon I'm asking for would automatically take a screenshot every defined quantity of minutes on that defined URL webpage and save it on hard drive on exact defined folder.

The webpage I'm (mostly) interested for contains dynamic numerical values that are in average changing approximately four times per second. I don't need every second, not even every minute. I would take automated screenshots around 96 times per day which is one screenshot every 15 minutes. But quantity of minutes could be changed by me.

Additional problem is that wanted view of the webpage is where scrolling element is approximately on the middle of webpage content. Having said that, I definitely don't want that screenshots are taken from the top because in this case, on screenshot would be missing important graphical data. Solution could be that, instead of image based screenshot, entire webpage is copied into a PDF screenshot every X minutes and file saved. That would assure me that needed content is saved.

The reason why I'm looking for such tool is because I would like to compare the graphical non-stop 24 hours per day changing numbers. Compare them between two different moments in the past. The website is not saving past values so screenshots are the only solution.

I have already seen several different addons related to screenshots but neither of them is offering everything I mentioned:

- automated taking and saving (downloading) with or without my presence in a form of (usually) browsing other websites - ability to define URL so screenshots are taken automatically from this URL - ability to define frequency (one screenshot per every X defined minutes) - automated saving on hard drive

Could anyone please tell me what should I use for that?

Thank you in advance.

I finally turned off the menu bar some time back and started using the Bookmarks Menu Button (the little star with an underline). With v89, the dropdown menu from this is huge. The fonts are a lot bigger than in v88, and for some reason, there are now two "Manage bookmarks" items, one at the top and one at the bottom. Is there any way, either official or through userChrome.css, to choose a small font? I already have a userChrome.css that I used to remove items from the old Bookmarks menu on the menu bar, but those don't apply to the BM Button.
