My WebRTC shield is on, says "you are protected", but the test I run on it seems to say a lot of info is readable. I have included a screen shot of the test. I am using Hoxx VPN (premium) and the shield is also from them. My firefox is up to date.

This is a little hard to describe, but pressing sideways on the wheel on my thinkpad mouse changes what is displayed on the screen. It appears to go back and forth through the history list, depending on whether the wheel is pushed to the right or left. Not talking about rolling / scrolling with the wheel, but pushing sideways on it.

How can I stop this?

mousewheel.default.action is currently = 1 mousewheel.with_shift.action = 4

Not sure what these settings do, but somebody suggested them.

Thanks

Hi, I just setup CC integration with a card reader (USB plug-in) for my website. I am unable to accept payments with the swiper because a pop-up is being blocked. I have given permission for FFox to allow it, as well as turning of enhanced tracking protection with no luck. I was able to open the terminal and charge are card on chrome without issue. The person who trained me on this terminal said it was designed around Chrome but I would really like to avoid using Chrome for my electronic health records and payments. Any help is greatly appreciated. Cheers!

Is it possible to change how the scroll zoom (ctrl + scroll wheel) works? I really would like to change it from 10% per scroll to 1% as I need a finer scroll percentage and this would make many things a lot easier.

PS I don't care about "ctrl + */-" as I would need to add every single pssible value from 50%-250%.

When I search for a term by writing in the search box on the Google home page, the inserted text goes into the address bar

I've tried deselecting all of the Firefox search options, but since the last Windows update (version 1904), whenever I try searching for something in the search box on the Google home page, I suddenly find myself writing in the address bar, and this is very annoying as the https://www.google.com address remains there and the search returns all sorts of things. Is there a way to stop this from happening? I've also noticed that the various one-click search engines that I put in the search box (to the right of the address bar) are now also displayed in the pane that opens when the address bar is used for searching, and this had never happened before.

Hi, I am having a problem with the colours of the images on different websites using Firefox 80.0. One one site the colours look as expected, on the other they look washed out.

This has only started happening recently.

Example: This is my Flickr account - the image looks as expected on this site: https://www.flickr.com/photos/pixelatedempire/49815829168/in/dateposted-public/

This is my SmugMug site - the same image looks washed out: https://www.adamblyth.com.au/Favourites/i-tZbVsJg/A

Attached is a side by side screenshot illustrating the differences as well.

The strange thing is this inconsistency of colours is only apparent in Firefox desktop browser. When I view in Chrome, Edge or Safari I do not see this problem, which leads me to believe the issue is browser related. Interestingly, I also do not see this colour issue on Firefox app for iPhone.

Note all images are saved as sRGB, png format. I tried uploading in jpg but no change. OS is Windows 10 Home. Browser extensions are here: https://ibb.co/nszRbNG

Same issue is apparent when all extensions are switched off.

Note I have had another user see the same issue as I am identifying when they checked my sites as well, which suggests the issue is not related to my hardware: https://dgrin.com/discussion/comment/2109971#Comment_2109971

Note I was having an issue with the general appearance of all images in Chrome (all images had the same washed out appearance), however this was rectified by switching off 'hardware acceleration'. This had no impact when I did the same on Firefox, although the images only look washed out on the SmugMug site in Firefox to begin with.

Please sing out if you require any further information to assist.

Firefox just auto updated for me today and the browser is placing the Facebook Tracker icon right in the center of the page of whatever I'm looking at. It also adds a little 1/4 circle in the upper left corner. It used to be just in the top bar - it doesn't appear there any more. How do I stop this, its super annoying.
