Two degrees of full screen mode

Using 78.0.1 on Windows 10, when I press F11 to get full screen in Youtube TV, it works, but it leaves a thin grey line at the very top of my screen (1280x800 resolution showing 1280/720 YTTV), and mousing over it drops down the Firefox tab and URL bars. That's "Full Screen Level 1". Using --kiosk prevents the dropdowns, but it doesn't get rid of the line.

If I play some video and mouse over the Firefox window while it's in Level 1 and not displaying any UI, a full screen icon appears in the upper right. Clicking it gets rid of the gray line and briefly shows the message, "youtube.com is now full screen." Now, mousing over the top middle of the screen displays that message instead of the Firefox UI. That's "Full Screen Level 2."

When I start Firefox, it remembers Level 1, but not Level 2, and the only way I see to get Level 2 is to click on the icon. I want Level 2 all the time for this profile, which I use on a small secondary monitor, and only for YTTV.

Any ideas?

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.

When I am playing media in a tab (youtube, spotify, etc.), if I open a new tab + website to browse, the audio/video in the other tab stutters badly.

This happens no matter what. With add-ons enabled, with ALL add-ons disabled, AND with firefox in safe-mode.

I have uploaded a video of the problem in action:

So for example, I have https://open.spotify.com/collection/tracks bookmarked. Pretty much every time I want to open that link, whether from top sites in a new tab or if I search that bookmark from the URL and click it, nothing happens. It will, however, work the second time I click it. It seems like really odd behavior.

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.

When I tried to log into the browser with my firefox account, instead of logging in I was created a new account. It turned out that by entering the login options it was redirected to the Chinese version of the page accounts.firefox.com.cn. Even if you change the link content manually, I cannot log into my European account in the browser. Why is this happening? Is my data which I accidentally used to re-register on the Chinese version safe?

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.

This issue is common to all browsers, but with how customizable Firefox is, I'm hoping it might help me circumvent the issue somehow.

My screen resolution is 1920 x 1080, but I use Windows settings to scale elements to 125% because my eyes are bad and I want to see the Windows and other software's interfaces better. As a result, the inside of Firefox, websites themselves, are also scaled. My resolution is reported as 1536 x 864 pixels. In most scenarios, this isn't really a problem, since in theory zooming out to 80% restores a website's appearance to normal.

But while developing, it can be weird. For instance, when using mobile simulation mode. And the reflex of pressing Ctrl+0 to restore default appearance is deeply ingraned. Also when someone tells me there's a problem with the website at X zoom, I have to calculate what that zoom level is equal to for me.

So I'm wondering if there's something I can do, other than fiddle with zoom all the time, to see what my website actually looks like while keeping my interface enlarged.

Until recently, when I clicked on a pdf link, Firefox would load the PDF file as a preview, treating it (on the user end) much like any other webpage but with a download button available. If I then clicked on the download button, it would be saved in my downloads folder, and clicking the saved file in Firefox's download links would open it in my default PDF viewer (ie Acrobat). This allowed me to easily look at PDF files without cluttering up Firefox's downloads list, as well as quickly open a downloaded PDF in Acrobat.

Following a recent update to Firefox, these options seem to have been changed and I can't find a way to revert to the previous behaviour. It seems to be treating the in-browser function as a full PDF viewer, rather than a preview. I can set Firefox to open PDFs in Acrobat, but then it downloads every link I click on which happens to be a PDF and opens them all in Acrobat. Or I can tell it to open them in the browser, but then if I want to open a PDF in Acrobat I have to download it, then hunt for it in my downloads folder and open it there rather than directly in Firefox. It also clutters up my downloads list, making it harder to find slightly older downloads without going through file explorer.

Alternatively, I can tell Firefox to ask me what to do every time. This is a bit better (a new option "open with firefox" has been added), but still involves making a couple of extra clicks each time I open a PDF - and it still insists on downloading every PDF based link I click.

What makes this particularly strange is that the in-browser PDF viewer still has a "download" button, which has the traditional two "open with___"/"save file" options, even though as far as I can tell it will only display stuff it's already downloaded.

Is it possible to return to Firefox's previous behaviour, or is it gone for good?

Gmail.com just flat-out refuses to load. It works literally everywhere else, but the vast majority of the time it's acting like I'm not connected to the internet at all. I've managed to...trick it into connecting twice now by closing the tab, attempting to go to gmail.com in a new tab, then leaving it alone for about five minutes and coming back to remind it that I'm still trying to load the page it seems to have forgotten to load. I'm not exactly locked out of my email, but what the hell is going on?
