Why does clearing my browsing data delete the "top sites" symbols pinned to my home page? I use these sites every day and don't want to have to replace them every time I clear my browsing history. Other browsers leave them in place. Is there a way to keep them there unless I intend to delete them?

Hi all,

I am running into an odd issue and I am stumped on what to try next. As you can see in the attached images, I am running into a problem with select dropdowns. The first dropdown is from https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/raspberry-pi-400/ (Buy Now and click country) and the second is from this Mozilla support page. Long story short is dropdowns are messed up in my default profile. I have done the following to attempt to troubleshoot the issue -

1) Restart Firefox in Safe-Mode without addons 2) Refresh Firefox 3) Delete the Firefox user directory 4) Create a brand new profile and launch into the new profile (This works but for some reason but it can't be my default profile) Default profile fails to work but others don't. If I set my newly created profile as the default, then the new default profile doesn't work. Odd.

Anyway, if anyone has any insight on fixing this issue then it would be great. The dropdowns have been broken for a few months but I have just dealt with them. Thank you for any help over the topic.

I have disabled autoplay in my preferences for all websites, but some videos on some websites still autoplay. (This is under Preferences / Privacy and Security / Autoplay. Under "Default for all Websites", it is set to Block Audio and Video.) How is it that some websites are able to get around this? Is there a way to defeat them?

Printing a pdf file using Adobe allows you to select to Print the page as Actual Size, verses Fit or Shrink. I need Actual Size to print onto Card Stock that has preprinted info. Now pdf files can open in the Firefox Browser, but Actual Size is not an option of the Print Window.

Any ideas to Print Actual Size using Firefox Browser?

Hi All

I bought the Firefox OS Flame reference phone in 2014 to see what it was it was like. It came in a box with T2Mobile on it but is not a locked phone.

7 years later, it's 2021, and I've been using an Apple iPhone for 6 years and I wondered if Firefox OS was still going as I couldn't find a reference to it on the Mozilla Support page and I'd like to try using the phone again if possible. I know it's specs are very basic compared to phones today but I don't mind. It only supports 3G but I am on Vodafone Australia and as far as I'm aware they still support 3G even if it might be slow.

Appreciate any thoughts on if I can still use the phone and if Firefox OS if still going and has a recent version that might be able to install on my phone.

Here are the specs from the back of the box it came in plus a few other photos.

Cheers Cel

I am running Firefox Version 84.0.1 on Windows 10 1909.

Whenever I attempt to use a camera in Firefox, it defaults to one and does not allow you to select any others in the list. I have two other camera devices on this computer, but neither of them are ever listed.

I use OBS as a video mixer and then Voicemeeter as an audio mixer. Firefox has no trouble selecting between the 8 audio input devices on this computer, so I'm not sure why video would be any different.

I need Firefox to use OBS's virtual camera for school and work, but it always defaults to Epoccam now. It used to default to my NDI Virtual Input, which I was able to use (but with some issues) to get video out of OBS, it just added an extra hop.

This is more of a note for developers rather than a question, but I don't where to send it.

Without any action from me, this web page appeared in a new tab in Firefox: https://technologyto.com/media-capture.html?v=0.3.7&p=0.3.6&type=update (I was away from the PC when it loaded.)

The extension called "Media Capture" is not intalled in my Firefox. It might have been, a few years ago, as I vaguely remember trying something like it. (It didn't work with encrypted streams, so was no use to me.)

Now "Media Capture" does not exist at addons.mozilla.org, and I didn't find "TechnologyTo" at github.

So it's very odd that something has the power to load that page.
