I really love the new picture-in-picture option. It's especially helpful when I only have one monitor. There are a couple of rough-edges I'd like to see tweaked.

1. I resize these windows all the time to put them where they'll fit when I'm doing something else, and it can finicky to resize the window quickly. It would be helpful if the areas you can grab the edges and corners of were exaggerated. For example, if when the user's mouse is near an edge or corner of the picture-in-picture window a handle pops-up around the given area that's larger than the 1pixal-ish default handle area. I've seen similar functionality in the art program GIMP for selection boxes.

2. The way the window acts when being resized isn't very intuitive. The corners work as expected, but since the corner areas are so small I often grab the sides and that can get frustrating. I now know that when grabbing the Bight and Bottom sides of the window the Top-Left corner is anchored while resizing. Similarly, when grabbing the Left and Top sides of the window the Bottom-Right corner is anchored. That seems pretty intuitive when I type it out, what's the issue? Well, the problem comes when you are grabbing the window near the corners. If for example, I'm trying to grab the window by the Bottom-Left corner and miss (which I've done plenty) and grab the Bottom of the window. Now when I resize the window is anchored in the Top-Left instead of the Top-Right, which is the opposite of what I wanted and leads to some confusion and repositioning. What I would suggest, separate from the #1 solution, would be to break the sides of the window into three areas: Near-corner 1, Center, and Near-corner 2. When grabbing the window on the edge in one of the Near-corner areas, anchor the window at the opposite corner. When grabbing by the center of an edge anchor the window by the opposite center.

Thank you for reading my long suggestion. I hope you don't find this to be a negative interaction. I truly enjoy Firefox, and I've very excited about your new Picture-in-picture feature. I hope you understand that this level of nit-picking can only come from a place of love!

P.S: I'm very pleased to say that I did not include a third issue I had with the Spacebar Play/Pause functionality not working unless the Play button was the last object clicked on the window, because in the latest update it was gone! I want to thank whomever worked on that and let them know, someone did notice, and they appreciate it! <3 <3

I always have DRM turned off as I find the concept of DRM abhorrent and unethical.

I just visited a site (music.apple.com) which gave me an alert telling me DRM was turned off and asking if I wanted to enable DRM. I found this concerning, as websites should not be able to change my settings. Curious, I clicked the button, and lo and behold, the site was somehow able to turn DRM on!

How could this happen?

The new version of Firefox has removed the drop-down arrow from the address bar, a feature I use several times a day.

Previously, there was a way to restore this by setting a number of "browser.urlbar" options to "False." However, these are currently set at False.

Please advise. Without the drop-down arrow, Firefox is not useful at all.

I have a large screen and seldom use a window of full height other when shopping online. After setting Firefox window height to max by dragging the upper edge up to top of screen, Firefox does not reset window height on exit. I seldom remember to set window to full screen and back to overlapped windows before exiting to accomplish the reset. This means I must reset the height of Firefox manually the next use as I do many operations where I have several windows open with a portion of each showing. this allows me to switch windows without leaving the mouse (or waiting for the status bar to reappear so I can select the desired window) System is Windows 7-64 bit.

When I started Firefox today, neither Twitter or Reddit would load. Totally white pages without even an error message. I tried various solutions, including: 1. Disabling UBlock Origin 2. Staring Firefox in Safe Mode 3. Deleting all cookies/site data/password saved for these sites, restarting, and logging in.

The third solution worked. However now when I run Firefox in normal mode none of my extensions (RES, UBlock Origin, Privacy Badger, etc) work. They appear to be working (their icons in the taskbar, they are 'enabled' in settings) but they aren't doing anything and when I click on their icons they don't have any data/info on the current site.

I tried running the storage test here (https://firefox-storage-test.glitch.me/) and it returned errors seen in the attachment.

Also I'm running Firefox version 77.0.1 and Windows 7 despite this troubleshooting page and others automatically detecting a different versions (says 68.0 and Windows 10 here)

I find that I dislike many of the standard installation configurations. I'm a tech and install Firefox to get users away from those "other" browsers. But there's too much I don't like and it takes me too long to reconfigure each new installation.

So... I'd love to have a configuration script or something that could be run with the Firefox installer, full one if necessary, that would do all the tweaks I do after a new installation.

Examples. Remove all the extra stuff in the area to the right of the address bar. Leave and change download arrow to NOT hide when not currently used. (Who thought of that should be fired). Put old bookmarks icon back in place of other one. Remove the blank spaces on each side of the address bar.

And configure non-default options such as ask where to download instead of default to downloads, load previous tabs on startup, set default home page, disable password remembering, etc.

And, ideally allow installation of add-ons I always utilize like Bitwarden password manager (much preferred to Firefox's storing them), and Adblock Plus.

Any chance of any of this becoming available? Really don't want to use one of the screen recording/macro programs to do it.

Thanks.
