This is going to be difficult to explain, so I'll do my best;

Recently, Firefox has been exhibiting a problem where, upon maximizing a window, the window extends up by a few pixels more than any other maximized window. Now, normally this wouldn't be a problem as the top of the screen would cut off any extra padding. However, using a program that reserves the screen edge shows that a maximized Firefox window indeed extends past the regular window border by exactly 8 pixels.

What's more, when using Windows Snap on two separate Firefox windows, one of the windows respects the screen edge while the other does not! This leads to the window control buttons at the top right of both windows to be in different vertical positions, which is difficult to use.

No other programs I have exhibit this behavior, which is why I'm turning to Mozilla support. I don't know if the issue has to do with the browser or how Windows 10 renders the desktop, but it throws off the design of the desktop as I intend to display it.

In the provided example picture, the left window demonstrates predicted behavior where the upper border of the window is at the position I intend (40 pixels from the true screen edge), while the right window can be seen extending past the left one by exactly 8 pixels. I have tried this with extensions disabled, in safe mode, and every other way I can think of and the problem persists. No other programs exhibit this issue. This is utterly baffling to me and I hope someone might understand and be able to suggest any solutions.

Thank you!

I have a dual screen windows 10 system. I use both Firefox and Chrome. Chrome is set as my default browser because I use many Google apps. However, when I search the internet and open non-google programs I use Firefox. I would like to have Firefox always open on a designated screen. Is there a way I can set Firefox to always default to a designated screen.

I look forward to your answer.

My computer goes into sleep mode after inactivity. When I wake up my computer, if Firefox was left open and minimized, I can't click on it for one minute to bring it back up. A dinging sound happens. All other minimized windows can be maximized without issues. This is on a brand new HP PC running Windows10.

A while ago firefox started to take over as the program for mailto:. I even tried to stop it by changing firefox mailto to use outlook. Didn't help. I don't often use mailto, but I noticed it when I started outlook it said it wasn't the default program for everything and asked if I wanted to set it. Kept happening. Eventually I looked into default options for outlook and found mailto was set to firefox.

THEN I opened a downloaded PDF from a different browser and it opened it in firefox. I have Nuance PDF. And yes, now often when I start that it tells me that it's not the default.

And yes, I have or set the program for PDFs in FF to be Nuance PDF.

Outside of stopping using firefox, how do I get it to stop inserting itself as the default program? YES, at times I set FF to the default browser; did some recent upgrade make it mean to also set it to the default for all programs, and how can I set it to the default browser (which I do for some things I want to run at times), without stealing all the progam defaults?

WIn7Pro, FF 78.0.1 (64-bit)

Tnx,

I'm on Windows 10. The webcam software PerfectCam causes the floating icon-based meeting to be always on top [even if you minimise Firefox] and it also stops Firefox from letting you detach tabs from the main window by dragging a tab outside of the main Firefox window.

This does not happen with other webcam software such as SnapCam or Xplit.

The only way to get out of this problem is by closing Firefox. Extensions I have: Adblock, Adblock Plus, AddToAny Share Anywhere, Checker Plus for Gmail, Duplicate Tab Closer Quick Tabs Ported Startup Apps Weather

This does not happen immediately on the 1st Google Meet meeting of a Firefox session. It happens after a few meetings.

I actually find the always-on-top floating meeting Firefox tab a huge nuisance as I don't have anywhere to place it. If I put it on the corner, it covers the minimise/restore/close buttons. I'd love to be able to turn that thing off.

PerfectCam's maker Cyberlink's Tech Support already gave me some instructions after I sent some diagnostics data from my PC. The main thing was to go to the Device Manager > Display > Intel UHD Graphics 620 > uninstall And then go to an Intel page to download a software to downloaded the latest software for this intel thing.

After doing this, for most of the day, the problem didn't happen even after several meetings. So I thought that the problem had been solved. But at the end of the day it happened again.

I tested Google Meet on Chrome with PerfectCam and the problem doesn't happen on Chrome because it doesn't have a always-on-top floating meeting tab.

I'm attaching some images with information.

Hi all, when loading a PDF the first few pages load, and then the rest only load (slowly) once you scroll/click to view them. This wasn't always the case, and started about 4 weeks ago. My internet connection is 50Mbps, and is running at full speed, and my PC has 32GB of RAM. It's not my internet or PC, as far as I can tell.

Is there a fix? Is this a known new bug? Thanks.

Every time I download something whether its a program or file, Firefox would completely freeze for a few seconds and then go back to normal and resume the download. I find it very irritating, especially when I am trying to do something else on a different tab whether its working on school work or just watching a video. Is there a fix for this or will this be fixed in an upcoming update?

Hi, my Password Manager Extension (LastPass) always requires me to login after opening Firefox. It used to login automatically and is set to do so, but..it doesn't. I suspect a Firefox setting is preventing it from doing so, because this started after i did a Firefox-reset for an issue with my antivirus software and flash player. I clicked through the settings but i cant find a setting which would keep LastPass from automatically being logged in when i open Firefox. Can anyone help me here?
