Whenever I log on to my bank's web site, I'm sent an audible signal that invites me to start a chat session with a bank agent. The problem is that the audible alert is so loud that it startles me. This is very annoying. I called the bank's help line and was told there was no way they could adjust the sound volume. I would like to know if it's possible for Firefox to decrease the volume for that web site.

Why Yandex has been added as "default" (and unchangeable) engine with Russian language as default (unchangeable) setting?

Hi all, In the past I was using Chrome and I have decided to move back to Firefox because I didn't like certain trends of that browser...now...the thing is...I like to use Yandex, but in Chrome -until a certain point- I was able to alter its settings to force default English language for it.

Firefox seems to have Yandex set as default...you cannot alter it and you cannot delete any of the default engines (i.e., because if it is loaded, you seem unable to try add it as custom search engine with your chosen parameters), but seems that the Mozilla developers had the brilliant idea to add it with the default settings...which is in Russian...

...and you look into Extensions and all the people writing extensions seemed to have the same idea...

Now...fine that Yandex is mostly for Russian people, but why English-speaking users to be forced with the default search in Russian and being completely denied any possibility to force the English language on Yandex (as it is fully possible if you were able to tweak the search parameters...but Firefox isn't allowing to do, because the only thing we have is a dumbed down interface with a list of search engines!)...

...alternatively...why not allow to force our favored language parameters to ALL search engines by default?

( That would mean that one could have Google, Bing or Yandex in a different language of our choice....but that change would need to be implemented on developer side...)

My Firefox used to do this and it either rarely does it now or never does it. And that is... when I would type in, say, "anysite.com," it would have an alert and ask if I want to go to a certain already open tab. I could then click on it and go to that open tab, such that I do not open a new tab. Which would be redundant. How I can I make it do this again? I always have a LOT of tabs open!

I am looking for the widget.windows.window_occlusion_tracking.enabled preference setting on Linux. I was wondering if this setting was available on Linux? I have seen it on Windows. I was also wondering when this setting was introduced and if it is still active in the latest version of Firefox.

Thank you.

I've been hoping it would get better over the years but it's been a very long time and things never got better so I'm wondering why is the "new"(I think it's been close to 7 years now) addon is so restrictive?

I can't live without tab grouping and it's impossible to do the way I like with this new addon system and none of the many alternative are as good so it's been keeping me away from firefox since the change.

Is there a reason it's kept that way? I'd really like to come back to firefox because I'm sick of chrome and the smaller browsers have many compatibility issues because website ignore them but as long as the addon system remain as-is, I just can't.

Hello,

Has anyone else had an issue with using picture-in-picture mode lately on the Disney+ website?

I have Netflix, Youtube, etc. all open in other tabs with button available and working, but lately I am unable to use it specifically on the Disney+ website. It was working fine about a month ago, but haven't used it in a while (or noticed when the icon disappeared exactly). I included some images showing what I mean.

Any help is appreciated.

It used to be that all ticked device settings in Edit Mode, standard and custom, are selectable in Web Developer Tools / Responsive Design Mode. Before, the cursor, indicated by the blue outlined box as shown in the attached screen shot, wraps around the list of devices to show the other hidden device settings. But now, the cursor just wraps but the values in the list do not adjust to show the other device setting that are available to be selected.

I don't know if I unknowingly, did something that triggered the lost functionality mentioned above.

How could I restore this lost functionality so that I could test my website in all the device settings that I have checked in the Edit mode?

hi I am curious if there is a way to disable (remove) time bar (video progress bar) from appearing in picture in picture mode in Firefox Browser 123.0 (64-bit) version. Namely, I prefer to watch videos of sport events and knowing exact time of video duration could be a big spoiler. A version of picture in picture more without time bar existed in previous Firefox Browser versions 102.0.1

Hello, We are using a PAC-File. In the Function: FindProxyForURL(url, host) you return the Proxy. We are returning the Value:

     "PROXY proxy1:3128; proxy2:8080".

We see that Firefox often takes the fallback Proxy. The connection via the Fallback proxy is much slower than the connection via the original proxy. 


My Questions: How does Firefox recognize which Proxy is now active? Is there away to debug the Proxy Selection? Can I give a priority to a Proxy?

In the browser settings I use a color preference that replaces white with black, this works with pages where Dark Reader is not available. These settings are needed so that when surfing the web at night with the dark mode on, my eyes don't hurt from contrasting bright white elements with dark-colored pages. For example, it works on single image pages - in situations where except for the image the rest of the page is colored solid white; It also works for some add-ons - on settings pages and pop-ups.

I'm interested in being able to automate toggling on/off the «Use system colors» checkbox, which is in the browser «Color» settings. It would be great to somehow synchronize the activation of night mode in Dark Reader with disabling checkbox responsible for using system colors. Or, for example, make it so that when the «Website appearance» setting is set to «Automatic», the checkbox is switched accordingly together with it - being disabled when the appearance is dark and enabled when it is light.
