Hello

I'd like to ask you to help me disable a keyboard shortcut. I have CoolerMaster masterkeys keyboard and it has Play/Pause key that can be used by clicking Fn + Insert. Before the last update the function worked as it should - when I was listening to music using either Spotify or Foobar and used the play/pause key, it only had effect on those applications (even though I had Firefox open).

Now, since last update, the shortcut also has effect on Firefox - for example I'm listening to music with Foobar and have a Youtube tab in Firefox with a video stopped and when I use the shortcut - play/pause is done on both of the applications - Foobar and Firefox. It is really annoying and unwanted behavior.

I'm not sure if it has something to do with Firefox. But maybe there is some kind of configuration that can be applied to mitigate this behavior?

I'm using Windows 10, just so you know.

Thank you,

I am trying to stop autoplay on Tubi. I have tried everything from this topic: [[Firefox block autoplay not working, preferences are showing "Block Audio and Video"|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1278114#answer-1283973]] None of it works, modifying this option breaks Tubi playback completely: media.autoplay.blocking_policy = 2 , option 1 does nothing. I am at my wits end trying to stop auto playback on Tubi with FireFox. I tried another browser and auto playback is disabled easily on Tubi, and works as expected. I hope someone has figured this out for Tubi! Mark

Firefox external dictionaries broken

It used to be that you could drop dictionaries in $INSTALLDIR/dictionaries and they would be used. As of Firefox 62, Mozilla started putting the default dictionary in omni.ja and sometime later started ignoring the $INSTALLDIR/dictionaries directory.

But, supposedly, we can still point to external dictionaries by either setting the $DICPATH environment variable to point to a directory that contains a hunspell dictionary (en-US.aff en-US.dic) set and it would be seen and used by Firefox. OR we can set the spellchecker.dictionary_path preference.

I am running vanilla Firefox 78.3.0 ESR under Linux and neither of the above options is working (also not working in Firefox 68ESR). I have a customized medical dictionary that I have used for many years under older versions of Firefox that I now cannot use. I am hoping someone might have some idea what is going on. Is this option now broken? And I using it wrong?

$ ls /opt/dictionary en-US.aff en-US.dic $ export DICPATH="/opt/dictionary" $ firefox

I then check for a word that I know is only in the /opt/dictionary file (in this case, "algin") and it is still showing it as misspelled, so it is not using the external dictionary I defined. I tried also adding export DICTIONARY="en-US" before launching and that didn't help.

I'd like to start by saying that this has happened after several previous updates and i have now turned off automatic updates to help thwart this issue. Firefox updated yesterday and my add-ons that previously appeared in the menu bar on the top right were gone, as were the add-ons themselves as far as i can tell. I installed the add-ons along with a few new ones, but they don't appear in the menu bar. I went to manage add-ons, all but one are showing that they do not have short cuts, and the one that does, i don't seem to have an option to add the short cut to the menu bar.

If they have to be hidden, that will be very inconvenient, but more importantly, i'm not sure how to even use them as i essentially have no interface with the short cuts at this point. Does anyone know how i can fix this?

Do i need to revert back to an older version of Firefox? I'm on a mac using 10.14.6 Mojave.

Thanks,

Steve

Ever since I installed the latest Firefox version, I have not been able to use my auto hot keys. I've tried changing the script, etc.. (i'm not tech savvy but had help); and so when using a auto hot key; it'll work one, maybe two times; and then stop. Hoping someone can help me with a solution or guide me in the right direction on how to fix that, as I use a LOT of hot keys for my work.

In any other browser these hot keys work perfectly!!

So frustrating spent 2 days on this practically; thank you for ANY info anyone can provide.

Addons and Extensions Pages Blank after Reset; Extensions Not Showing in Search

I'm running FF 56.0b9 (64 bit) on Windows 10. It got really slow and laggy. Like multiple seconds of latency after I type to see the letters and tabbing fields. I cleared the cache hoping it would fix but still the same.

Then I couldn't comment on Youtube or open the drop down under my Youtube account icon. It would just show a blank section with a spinning wheel. So I gave up and decided to reset FF.

After I reset FF, I went to look for my extensions and addons to reinstall them and when I click on the Addons puzzle piece icon in FF, it opens up a new tab with a blank page (see attached) with the addons menu items on the left (Addons, Extensions, Appearance, Plugins, Services) and a white main page with a grey box that says What are addons? After explaining what they are, at the bottom it says "when you are connected to the internet, this pane will feature the best addons for you to try out."

When I click the Extensions menu item on the left, it takes me to another blank page (screenshot attached) that says "You don't have any addons of this type installed" with a button that says "Learn more about addons". When I click that, it takes me to the previous page.

The search box in the upper right yields no results no matter what I type in there.

How can I get to that page that shows all the different addons and extensions where I can search for the ones that I need so I can install them?

Thanks.

Back several versions ago, a Firefox update moved tabs to the top of the screen, just below the header and above everything else. For me, this is totally counter-intuitive. So I restored the older version of FF and disabled updates. Well now we're at the point where some pages aren't working and I'm being forced to update (v82). And of course, the problem has returned.

Is there any way to return the tabs to a position below the address bar and above the page itself?

And while I'm at it, is there a way to customize the looks of the tabs so that they once again look like the file folder tabs that they once did with the curved top corners? For me, this made them more easily identifiable as tabs.

Can Firefox be configured to open specified pages on the first time it is opened on a given computer session BUT a blank page on subsequent browser openings? I have 3 tabs (email accounts) I like to have open when I turn on my computer. But any time after that, I want a blank page when Firefox is opened. I know how to open to multiple tabs. However, then Firefox always opens to those tabs when I start a new window.

Since an update about two weeks ago, every time I press alt-s the search/address bar is expanded. This is annoying, because we use this key combination to save forms of a web-application (our ERP). I didn't find an option to disable this behaviour. A web-search did not help. I found some suggestions, but none of them worked (eg. old discussions here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=446830 or here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=343909)

Any Ideas?

On Linux (Pop OS) when the mic or webcam is active, a notification is displayed. This is great and useful for security.

However, I cannot move or click on or do anything with it. The most annoying thing for me is it pops up directly over my system clock (See screenshot attached).

Is this icon supposed to be movable? Is clicking it supposed to do something (like activate the tab using the mic/webcam)? Is this a missing feature or bug?

I've seen some solutions regarding a custom css file that hides it entirely, but I'd still like to know when a tab is accessing it. I just want to be able to move it out of the way!

The last three times Firefox updated, the Fox icon on the Windows 10 task bar was replaced by a generic one. To restore the Fox icon, the generic one has to be unpinned, but that deactivates it and does not remove it. Then, selecting the generic icon results in a missing item error message and the error box has a selection to remove it. Then a new shortcut needs to be created from the Firefox exe file in the Program Folder and dragged to the task bar. Any idea what is happening and why, and preferably how to prevent it?

Currently, when I download a file, the progress is shown in kilobytes per second. I would like to have that shown as megabits per second, so I can stop wasting time looking up a speed conversion calculator and finding out how the download is doing as compared to what my ISP says my connection is worth.

Hi, I just updated to Firefox Developer 83.0b4 and the two-finger scroll sensitivity has been drastically reduced with no clear way to reconfigure it. I've spent the past 30 mins tweaking scroll settings in `about:config` (restarting FF after each value change) to no avail. In fact, it doesn't even appear that enabling/disabling `general.smoothScroll` or `general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel` have any noticeable effect, let alone the many other options listed. Are there any pages that describe the myriad options in `about:config` so that I can take a more measured approach to troubleshooting this issue?

What changed? And why? Chrome did this same thing at v68 without ever providing any way to configure it and FF has been my main browser since. I'm just trying to understand how such a significant input change can happen overnight without any explanation or any way to fix it.

Can anyone advise me why I can't see the Evernote extension on my tool bar? or anywhere for that matter.

When I look at the add ons/ extensuons list, it is there but it no longer appears and therefore I can't clip to Evernote which is my standard go-to way of keeping things quickly.

I have tried removing and reinstalling several times but it makes no difference.

Help please?
