I'm using Firefox Beta on a slow laptop in Linux -so, manually changing videos to 360p from the cog works to make them play smoothly. The facebook SD Only setting in https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=videos doesn't really work -only in a few videos. If anyone knows of an extension that handles this on latest Firefox Beta let me know. Thank you.

So up until firefox updated... yesterday? day before? not sure my circadian Rhythm is a total mess at the moment. but ever since that most recent update picture in picture doesn't pop up on netflix anymore?

i can still use it on YouTube and Prime Video, the only other sites i use it on really, but not Netflix?

as you can see, the icon appears fine on youtube, but on the netflix screenshot, it does not.

dead annoying since watching a show with picture in picture while grinding in a windowed game is a poor gamer's second screen.

It seems that Firefox on Win10 does not present alternate stylesheets in local files.

See for example: https://www.w3.org/Style/Examples/007/alternatives

I have a trivial HTML file, e.g., c:\alternate_stylesheet.html, with a few of those examples of alternative stylesheets, like:

 <link rel="alternate stylesheet"
       type="text/css"
       href="http://www.w3.org/StyleSheets/Core/Steely" title=Steely>
 <link rel="alternate stylesheet"
       type="text/css"
       href="http://dbaron.org/style/forest" title="Forest (by David Baron)">

Viewing such a trivial HTML page in Firefox on Win10, the View > Page Style list is the default - just "No Style" and "Basic Page Style". The list does not include the head link alternate stylesheet options.

Why not?

IE has no trouble with these (menu View > Style presents them as expected), which seems to confirm that the trivial HTML code is correct.

Any advice?

Up until the release of 78.0.1, I have been deleting items from the address bar by highlighting the item and then holding the Shift key and tapping Delete. This doesn't work now, much like when it changed from just hitting the Delete key, so what is the process for deleting specific items from the address bar now? The Help pages are no help because they still say to do the Shift+Delete way.

It seems most answers to this question tell you to clear browsing data and the autofill entries. That's not what I want.

Say you have a form that contains previous data, whether manually entered or autofilled. You want to use autofill for the entire form, but by default it doesn't overwrite fields with entries. How do I clear the form and start fresh so autofill can do its job?

Greetings forum -

I have Firefox on automatic update. Last night Firefox auto updated to version 78.0.1 and this update added pre-installed bookmarks suggestions that appear when I click the command line.

These pre-installed bookmarks suggestions are offensive trash like: facebook, twitter, reddit, etc.

I have searched the help section. I have scoured the customize pull down menus. I have looked through the bookmark editor ... and found no clear method of removing these pre-installed bookmarks suggestions.

There MUST be a way to do so. I CAN NOT see facebook, twitter, and reddit in my bookmarks every time I click on the command line.

Does anyone know of a method to remove these pre-installed bookmarks suggestions?

Thanks in advance for your time and knowledge.

Hi! Chrome based browsers (like chromium or Vivaldi) permit to obtain 96KHz or even 192KHz float 32bit audio output. Firefox stuck at float32le 48KHz. This is not sufficient for me. i have a Linux LinuxMint 20 on a STRIX Z270G audio chip @ 96KHz and headsets like Sennheiser HD650 and GRADO RS1e so able to perfectly perceive the effects of harmonics up to frequency my chip can produce (96KHz band pass).

Question: Is possible in Firefox 78 for Linux to change the max frequency from 48KHz to 96KHz maintaining the float32le setup?

Thank you to all advices!

How can I buffer more than two minutes at a time on Youtube? I've just read [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1168957], and I tried setting both media.cache_readahead_limit and media.cache_resume_threshold to 999999, but there seems to be no effect. It still stops at two minutes ahead of the current position in the video, and won't buffer more. What's the fix?

Several years ago style editor in Firefox browser console had an option to do text search in all of the stylesheets at the same time, instead of doing it one by one. I can't seem to find that option anymore, even though I remember seeing a keyboard shortcut for that later on.

Is it still possible to search in all files? If not, what is the best place to request bringing that feature back?

I'm running macOS Mojave (version 10.14.6 ) and Firefox 77.0.1

When I CMD-P to print a web page, sometimes I want to generate it as a PDF. On the print popup, at the bottom left is a drop-down for PDF options. One of them is to send the PDF via email.

Yes, I want to do that. But if I select it, Firefox launches Apple Mail to do the sending. I want it to launch Thunderbird, as it has all my contacts and I want the "sent" file to go into my Thunderbird files.

How do I override Firefox launching Apple Mail and have it launch Thunderbird instead. I've prowled around in the preferences but can't find any that allow me to pick my preferred email app.

Thanks!

A lot of firefox is customizable via userchrome or extensions, however one thing that does not seem to be is the default PDF.js viewer. I would like to continue using it; however, I would like to change the styling on it (specifically I want to change how page breaks are rendered, which I already have the CSS for). Extensions obviously will not work as it is an internal file, userChrome doesn't work (I tried it), and I can't seem to find where the viewer is actually located on my PC (Search Everything brings nothing relevant up for pdfjs, pdf.js, or viewer.html.) Is there any way that I can modify the inbuilt PDF viewer?


PS this is probably unimportant but I noticed that https://mozilla.github.io/pdf.js/web/viewer.html has slightly different CSS from the built in version .

Dear all,

I would like to know whether there is any way to load (some/any) sidebar content (e.g., for the sidebar created by the "Notes for Firefox" extension) as a "large version" into the main browser window?

I was already able to extend the maximum size of the sidebar on one hand and on the other hand I even extracted the files of the "Notes by Firefox" extension whose sidebar I would like to have open in the main browser window. Unfortunately, just loading the "sidebar/index.html" (as this is the "default_panel" of the "sidebar_action" mentioned inside the "manifest.json" file of the "Notes by Firefox" extension) did not work as some (a lot?) of variables are not defined...

So, is there any sort of way to get some sidebar being displayed in the common browser content window? If so, please advice how to do it. Thank you!

Best regards, Patrick

I decided to use Firefox, but I noticed some things that are missing.

1) Being able to color the favorites folders (at least set white, black or gray)

2) Black or gray background when I open a favorites folder (currently it's white)

3) Layout of folders open folders of favorites that adapt to the length of the name of the favorites

4) Ability to enter a different pin or master password, in order to access the passwords on mozilla firefox (if I leave my pc on, with firefox open, another person can go to the firefox settings and see all my messages in clear password.)

5) Incorrect display of GMail e-mail (a sliding bar appears in the center)

6) Ability to choose whether to scroll or decrease the tabs.

First of all, congratulations to everyone for the work done so far on Mozilla Firefox.

Ps: if you want I can post photos for every single point mentioned above.
