we have installed Firefox 85.0.2 (esr). we are working in home office with a vpn connection (citrix gateway). the system is set to use proxy settings with a script - every time I start firefox new, it is set to "auto-detect proxy setting for this network" and I have no internet. Also with disabled vpn connection - i have to set the proxy setting to "no proxy" or "use system proxy settings" who sets the setting default to "auto-detect ..."? why is this not working in home-office

With concerns about supply chain security, I would like the ability to ensure that the file download matches a recognized checksum.

Downloading from: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/78.6.1/releasenotes/ yields checksum SHA256 55249C4861FE521CB32D72785481A146B64812AF2ECE7341FAAA5C79ABC0F395

This does not match any of the checksums available at: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/78.6.1esr/

Best practice would be to publish the official checksum along with the release notes.

Is there another way to close the loop on this?

Hi,

I'm trying to disable the media popup in windows 10, which appears when you lower your volume or skip a song or anything (see added image). I have a brand new pc and on my old pc i was able to fix this easily by doing this: go to about:config and change this: set media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled from true to false.

I did that now, with my new pc as well. But i just does not work, i restarted my browser and pc after changing it, i set it back to true and back to false again, it just will not work.

I googled this issue, but the only solution i find, is what i exactly the thing i described above, nothing else.

I recently reinstalled mozilla firefox on my PC and i noticed that in Option>General>Downloads there is no longer the option to disable the "Save File" pop up window whenever u click on a file to download. I searched around, even messed with about:config but i couldn't find a way to disable it. So the question is simple: Is there a way to disable this prompt?

There is one menu short in a screen, when I use Firefox to my bank. The file "2021-02-14.png" is missing a menu with "Forbrugsoverblik Forbrugsagenter Etiketter" on black background. The file "2021-02-14(1).png" is the same <prt sc> but in Edge browser. The file "2021-02-14(2).png" is the same but in Crome.

The two last are correct with all menu'es. How do I get the same i Firefox? I have cleared cookies and cache without any result.

I can't send any links, because you need to be logged in.

When i use Firefox and i'm logged in YT, time labels and red progress bar at the bottom of thumbnails aren't visible. When i'm logged out, everything works fine. Also, video progress seems not to work too.

Things i've already done: -turned off all extensions -reinstalled firefox browser

I explored html, and it looks like something blocks browser from putting some elements into code or whatever. The time label is called "ytd-thumbnail-overlay-time-status-renderer" and it's contained in "overlays" div. So when i'm logged out from YT, everything works fine, but when i'm logged in, this "overlays" div is empty.

Recently I switched to Firefox from chrome.It is better than before.But it lacks some customizable features.Like I can't set a Firefox homepage wallpaper.It is the simplest thing every browser has.But I know that I can do so by setting a custom URL as home page.but I would literally like to have that feature in the default homepage.I don't know if any options are there or not,but it would be great.And the read aloud feature that is in chrome is also not available in Firefox.This is the feature i use a lot while reading books online. And these are the minor customizable features that I would like to have.

I use the Bookmarks Toolbar for all of my desktop bookmarks. I frequently create new bookmarks or refile bookmarks by dragging them and dropping them into the appropriate subfolder in the toolbar. While navigating through multiple layers of bookmark subfolders, I often accidentally slide the new bookmark a few pixels above or to the side of the submenu, briefly hovering over the browser window surrounding the expanded menus. After a fraction of a second, all of the submenus collapse and I have to start over.

Is there any ui tweak available to insert a delay into this submenu collapse? I have already tried changing ui.submenuDelay and ui.click_hold_context_menus.delay, but neither of those had any effect on this issue.

Hi everybody. For reasons I don't fully understand the Amazon search prompt on my copy of Firefox is for amazon.co.uk. I'd like to keep the search prompt but would much prefer to have my local website (amazon.it). I've fiddled a bit with settings but cannot find an option to modify the extension: is this possible?

Thanks.
