I want to build a progressive web app. This app requires the user's GPS coordinates. In order to test this functionality cross-browser, I use w3schooll geolocation implementation. Link: https://www.w3schools.com/html/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml5_geolocation

Compared to Chrome, Firefox sometimes returns the wrong coordinates. For example yesterday (13/03/2020) the coordinates were wrong all day. Today (14/03/2020) the coordinates are right. The coordinates are crucial for the success of the app. I use Firefox 74.0

I have a IIS 7.5 web server but FireFox won't allow access. All other browsers work fine but not firefox.

I get the error PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR. I need to know what is wrong with the server as otherwise people won't be able to use FireFox to view the site.

Gaps apper after groups of characters in a rendered html, not in the code html, but whatever firefox uses to render what we see when open a page.

Loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong

If you take that long word put in a .html, and render, for me shows small gaps after groups of 9, 14, 18, 20... characters. The number of characters may change in different tags, like tables or a div, but always show small gaps. Tested in chromiun, but just works fine, without this gaps.

In online text editor does not show, but when rendered is shows.

Another detail, you need a css to force the word to break. And when this lines are created by the brake is when the gaps are visible. The css code used in that flow:


tag { word-break: break-word; //1 For chromiun word-wrap: break-word; //2 For chromiun overflow-wrap: anywhere; //3 For Firefox }

In my MTML code I have in the style section

   .RB td  {outline:medium solid red;border:10px solid white;}

According to the definitions the outside of the table cell should be red and the inside should be white. However, the border seems to be on both sides of the outline. To see what is happening look at https://freedom-press-alliance.us/ For what it is worth, Edge has the same problem.

On my dev system (windows), I have an apache server and a number of sites defined.

They are listed in the hosts file and also configured in httpd-vhosts.conf.

I have had to stay with an old version of Firefox for the last few years, as more recent versions refused to connect to the localhost sites. I have been "forced" to upgrade and am nolonger able to connect to the local sites. I precise that doing a ping to the site address will return the 127.0.0.1 address.

What do I have to do to get this important functionality working again, please ?

Once upon a time, a kind soul from Sun was providing Firefox builds for Solaris 10 Sparc but he seems to have given up after release 52 so I'd like to give it a shot.

First question: Does anyone already have a recent Firefox package for Solaris 10 Sparc?

Second question: Is it even going to be possible to do this? Ie. is there anything that would be a show stopper here? I've already downloaded the source for Release 66.0. Running ./configure got as far as it complaining that it needed Rust.

At this point I just thought I'd ask before getting in too deep. Thanks.

I like to test my web pages as much as possible at home before uploading to a server. I do this by setting up empty drive partitions for my various sites, so that 'root level" access will work similarly on a server or from the hard drive. So, for example, a line on a page like...

<script src="/scripts/siteScripts2.js"> </script>

or

<link rel="stylesheet" type = "text/css" href="/styles/fonts/fonts.css"> <link rel="stylesheet" type = "text/css" href="/styles/spcPageStyles1.css" >

Will reference the files from the root level, as if it was on a server.This works all the time with Chrome and IE, even back to IE-8. So Mozilla Firefox must be blocking file references from local hard Drive root level. If there is a config variable or two I can set to allow it from firefox, I'd appreciate knowing about it. I'm satisfied testing with Chrome and IE, but FF is an important browser to test with.

Thanks in advance!

Hi, I have a problem with checkboxes and radiobuttons in firefox.

It renders a checkbox in grid-like pattern when the checkbox is styled with width and height attributes. It can be best seen in the provided image together with inspect-element for that checkbox. The relevant site is https://www.w3schools.com/w3css/w3css_input.asp. But it can be done for any checkbox.

I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 and I've updated to Firefox v65 but the problem persists. In Chrome it gets rendered correctly.

Please advise on how to fix this behavior.

I realize this API is relatively new; however, some coding examples would really be helpful: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Web_Authentication_API

For example, step 2 states, "Browser Calls authenticatorMakeCredential() on Authenticator". How does the browser know what the authenticator is? Specifically, how do you set up an authenticator on a mobile device that will be accessed by a bluetooth call? Is this part of the spec supported yet?

Does the developer have to code the bluetooth call to the authenticator?

There seems to be lots of general concepts with no specific steps or coding examples. Please help!
