Firefox 78 sometimes fails to block autoplay, e.g. scrolling the front page of reddit.com or a subreddit will intermittently show videos playing.

This worked in 77. Some about:config entries I'd swear were set in 77 have vanished; I tried adding them manually, but the autoplay blocking is still hit and miss.

Also, not sure if Troubleshooting Information uploaded successfully or the page broke (see screenshot).

Prior to the latest version, I had set "media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed" in about:config to False in addition to blocking both audio and video within the settings so that nothing would autoplay without my input.

I updated to version 78 yesterday, and it seems that "media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed" is now gone from within about:config. I'm getting videos autoplaying within sites like YouTube, despite me setting both audio and video to not autoplay.

Is there anything I can do to ensure that nothing starts playing without me allowing it?

Everytime I open the suggestions in the address bar Search with Google or Search with Amazon appear at the top. You cannot remove them by using the 'forget about this site' feature and if you change the browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus to 'False' you don't get the suggestions. Can you tell me how to permanently remove Search with Google or Search with Amazon from the suggestions. Thank you.

Hi Folks, In the last couple of days the display in my Task Bar has changed and I want the 'old' display back.

It used to be that only the first tab I had open was on show and when I clicked on it my browser would pop up, all complete with as many tabs as I had open. If perchance I had two copies of my browser open then they'd appear side by side.

Now however, all opened tabs are on show - and I don't like it. Today for example I have four tabs open (as seen below) and if I hover my pointer over any one of them then it displays as a thumbnail and if I hold my pointer over any one tab then it displays on screen. But I want to go back to the 'old' way with each opened browser showing but with other tabs hidden.

How can I do that?

I followed the directions on a security site to protect online communication. It suggested one or more setting, which resulted in Firefox opening in a fixed size window by default. I would like to revert it back so that Firefox opens in full screen, but can't remember which settings were altered. Any suggestions on how to revert to full screen by default? Thanks in advance.

Is it possible to open Firefox from command line (or shortcut) without loading the URL or tab bars?

My current workaround is to load the URL and then click a bookmarklet which opens the tab in a popup window. Is there a way to open a link directly in a popup window?

I've scanned about:config to no avail, and it seems all the popup extensions just do what my bookmarklet does.

Ideally there would be a command line flag like --popup which does exactly that, but the closest thing I could find is --headless and --kiosk which don't work that way.

I also made a new profile named "popup" and intended to add extensions which hide the nav bar, but it looks like extensions aren't allowed to do that any more.

Seems that youtube has taken away the ability to use the old layout with many columns so it wants to show annoyingly large things on the screen and with way too few columns. (Yes, strange enough, I want to see more than 2 columns on a 65" display)

Thus the extension that I was using earlier to force youtube to use old layout obviously no longer works.

I found that if I set the zoom to 67% and remove the checkbox that allows the site to set own fonts and sizes, along with using font 24 as minimum size seems to produce a readable text size and yet show 6 videos/column.

But I do not want to have other sites like that, so would want to apply it only to youtube as most other sites have actually fairly ok font sizes compared to other elements on the page and ok at 100% zoom level.

I am setting up a new desktop and want to copy my Firefox profile from one Linux desktop to another. In the past I have just used sync and then had to go thru the process of making all the config adjustments and tweaking other settings that are not part of sync. I just copied over my Thunderbird profile and it was a perfect copy and paste. Unfortunately I have tried twice with FF and its not working. Keep getting the message that the profile being copied in is from an older version. That's not true however the one being copied in is from 77.0.1 and the new desktop being pasted into is 71.0. Any idea what I am doing wrong that's an easy fix? Thanks.

Recently, when a popup window appears, the toolbar doesn't have buttons for any of my addons.

In about:config, I'd intentionally set dom.disable_window_open_feature.toolbar to true (following the solution provided in: question 1206512).

Previously, this was successful in ensuring that popup windows got the full toolbar, but now it has stopped working.

I'm not sure exactly which release this started with.

Steps to reproduce:

1) Set dom.disable_window_open_feature.toolbar to true.

2) Visit https://jeffersonscher.com/res/popit.html and follow the third link.

3) The window that pops up has no toolbar icons for the installed extensions.

Hello, all...

I'm running Solus 4.1 with the 5.6.18-155 kernel on my Asus UX330UAR and Firefox Nightly 79.0a1 (2020-06-26) (64-bit). Currently, I used Android Messages for Web via a "webapp" in Brave and am provided a "desktop icon" for that window; however, I'd much rather use my default Firefox and just discovered the "browser.ssb.enabled" setting.

The "trouble" is doing so does not provide any icon to launch by itself; that is, I must be already in Firefox to use the "App Mode."

Any ideas on how to accomplish this dream?

Thanks for any ideas!
