I would love to get a real answer to my question below.

Why did you remove this feature? Please see screenshot. Simple option to search any site using the selected highlighted word. In screenshot below I highlighted "scored".

The screenshot is from Palemoon. Yet this feature used to be in firefox.

Look forward to your answer.

Hello,

I want to permanently remove these notifications by whatever means necessary.

This is the same issue that was[[ previously discussed here.|https://support.mozilla.org/no/questions/1237229]] previously discussed here. However, the chosen solution is only a temporary workaround, I am only interested in a permanent fix. I have dom.webnotifications.enabled set to false yet these notifications still appear. Is it possible to disable them using a policies.json file?

So today I wanted to try FF Containers, because I have service user to manage O365, my normal company user and my personal user.

Now I open make.powerapps.com in container dedicated to this site I log in with one of these users everything is ok, but during first sign-in I am not asked even for password for specified account, I just enter email and then I am redirected and signed in. I have disabled "Allow Windows single sign-on for Microsoft, work, and school accounts". When I want to access portal.azure.com in another container, I am automatically signed in with user from previous container dedicated to powerapps.

I especially logged out of all containers and removed all cookies from FF before submitting and it is still happening

Also checked Windows "Internet options", I do not have any of these sites in "Intranet sites" and Level for all zones regarding to User Authentication is "Prompt for user name and password" dunno know what is wrong.

Hello Mozilla, I like your picture-in-picture feature in Firefox. Is it possible to check via JavaScript if a user has PIP enabled? Some events like "enterpictureinpicture" are described on your website https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Picture-in-Picture_API, but have not yet been implemented. When will this happen? It is important for web designers to know whether a visitor uses this feature - for example to hide the original video. Or is there another method to hide it?

I have Firefox installed on Linux (Fedora), Windows, and macOS, and on Windows and Mac, I can use ctrl (cmd on Mac) + shift + Y to open the Bitwarden extension. On Linux, this instead opens the downloads library (which is normally ctrl + shift + j...). Is there any way to change the shortcuts on Linux to be the same as the other two OSes? Judging by the many many open questions on this site about changing shortcuts, I'm not holding my breath...

Hi!

I want to use my own unsigned addon with my daily browsing. But I found out that firefox hates it's user base by making xpinstall.signatures.required option in about:config only available to dev builds.

If I use firefox dev build will I loose on performance? For example is it compiled with debug symbols that slow down code execution? And if so, is it somehow possible to get the release version of firefox where xpinstall.signatures.required is set false so that I would not loose because of dev build?

I installed Evernote Webclipper on Firefox on my Macbook Air, but the icon/tool does not display so is not usable. I used the "customize toolbar" info to drag the extension icon to the toolbar. Clicking on that put me back on the add-ons page, did not open the extension. I restarted, restored defaults, removed and re-installed Evernote still no go. VERY frustrated. Any ideas from anyone welcome. Thanks.

My homepage is Google. When i open it on my desktop (win7) the cursor is automatically in the search bar on that webpage. As i want it to be. My number one function when opening firefox is to search google so that is where i want to start. NOT in the address bar ever.

On my laptop (upgraded to win10) it is in the address bar.

I installed the exact same profile from my desktop to laptop.

I have run it in troubleshoot mode and the issue went away. So i disabled all addons and custom themes but issue still persisted.

I turned off hardware acceleration, no change.

What else could troubleshooting be turning off?

Why does the exact profile work on desktop but not laptop ?

I've got a legacy transformer laptop with an integrated wacom-type sensor screen. Despite all shortcomings of it's age, the laptop's got class.

The main web browser installed is Firefox ESR. In tablet mode, control was handled by the Windows - mouse-like drag'n'drop, marking, but with added scrolling gesture by swinging quickly up and down. Using it in the tablet mode is actually very practical.

Recently, after updating from 91 to 101, browser started to interpret the pen as a finger, controls became clumsy and frustrating. The only way of turning finger gestures off, parameter gestures.enable_single_finger_input described in that question (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/973974) had no visible effect. Have fallen back to 91esr, but this is obviously just a temporary solution. Is there any way to add force-disable parameter or something?

I see that Firefox can show us how much data (bytes) stored on disk by each site.

But, can Firefox show a more detailed information about it, i.e. the breakdown of how much is used for cache, local-storage, etc? And even further, can we delete/clear only one specific kind of them, e.g. "Only delete the cache, but retain the cookie"?

I see this feature in MS Edge as attached below, but can't find the same in Firefox.

I want to clear the data stored by several sites (Google and some sites taking up 800MB each). But I don't want to clear the cookie if possible, since I don't want to being logged out from those sites.
