This feature is not working in Firefox. When clicking on the dictation icon an error message is received to the effect that Onenote does not have access to the laptops microphone. Onenote definetely does have the permission needed in Firefox, both in the page info and in the options. This feature works well in Edge.

I am finding this on two laptops one using Windows 10 Pro the other Windows 10 Home. Both are up to date. Therefore I assume that this is a bug in FF?

Suggestion

Dedicated home button

A few years since I last used Firefox on Android, now I'm back and I'm missing a dedicated home button on the toolbar/ address bar like the one on Opera and Chrome.

Getting from an active page back to the speed dial is not one tap but three taps, which doesn't seem to be a very efficient way to do things?

Google search tells me I'm not alone wishing for a dedicated home button on Firefox Android so perhaps something to consider seriously in a not so distant future...?

Fedora 31 box, 5.8.13 distro kernel, distro firefox

I play online poker at https://www.playwpt.com/ With firefox 81.0.1, my entire computer will be frozen/unresponsive within 30 sec of playing. I revert to 80.0.1, I can play as usual. I haven't seen other problems with other sites.

I've had a similar issue before, I think it was the 78-79 update, something about paging getting stuck, something something.

Anybody else run into this? Fix coming?

I've been using Sync for a long time, my account password was saved within the browser, it just worked.

After update to version 81, following things happened: - all of the settings set in the options as well as about:config were re-set to defaults, - I could not log into Firefox account with a password working perfectly until now, - when tried 'Forgot password procedure' I've received "email address returned" error.

Is there anything I can do other than creating new account?

Thanks

Comcast drops IP address when ONLY using Firefox

HELP!!

Comcast keeps dropping my home network IP address ONLY when I am using the Firefox browser.

When I open the browser to access the internet (any site) within a few minutes or less the home network IP address is dropped by Comcast and I lose the internet. This does NOT happen when I am using Chrome.

My laptop wi-fi can still see - and connect to - other wi-fi networks in the vicinity and if I turn off the wi-fi for a few seconds and then turn it back on again connection is restored.

I have raised this issue with Comcast four (4) times and they have not addressed the issue, so my choice now is: stop using Firefox, keep turning the wi-fi off and on again or..........?

Can someone please tell me what is going on here and ideally how to to fix this issue - thank you.

Just installed 81.0.2 update, did not install cleanly, had to reset. All privacy & security settings were wiped. Redid everything, am now unable to block videos on news sites, which I had done previously. Can block autoplay with following config settings -

media.autoplay.allow-extension-background-pages - false media.autoplay.block-event.enabled - true media.autoplay.block-webaudio - true media.autoplay.blocking_policy - 1 media.autoplay.default - 5

Can no longer block videos from loading. How to do this in 81.0.2?

Hi – I recently restarted my browser and realized that I couldn't connect to any https sites – each attempt would throw a "the connection was reset" error.

I've changed my network settings from DNS-over-HTTPS to No Proxy and sites are now loading correctly.

I'd certainly like to use DNS-over-HTTPS if possible for the greater security, so I'd like to know what's causing the problem.

a. Is it just because I'm in Canada that DNS-over-HTTPS is throwing these errors? (Note: I was living in the US until recently) b. Are there some other proxy or ISP settings that might be causing the problem? c. Or should I be considering whether my connection has an actual security concern?

Thanks.

I rebooted my computer after it crashed, due to what appeared to be a hard drive error (at first when I restarted the computer I got the message, "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed)". Once I managed to get the PC started again I opened Firefox and found out that all of my saved passwords were gone as well as nearly all of my browsing history, which goes back over a year. Strangely enough, not everything is deleted - there are still several webpages that I visited in the past that still show up in the browser history, especially from the last few months. Not only that, but when I scroll through list of web results, webpages that I previously visited are still highlighted in purple, even though many of them do not show up in the much reduced browser history. Does this mean that the remainder of the browsing history is still somewhere? The Firefox profile is the same one as before the crash.

Thank you!

I use Firefox as my primary browser on my Mac Book. I have never changed my default browser from Google and if I go into preferences it says my default browser is still Google. Despite this, about 2 weeks ago all my searches started being in Yahoo instead of Google and it is getting really annoying now. I can't change it to any other browsers or back to Google, it's just stuck on Yahoo.

When dragging tabs in the browser, they "lag" strongly (not the contents of the tabs, but the "tab icons" themselves). Tested on multiple devices and the problem persists, what can I do about it. If anything, then the PC is not very weak and in other browsers there is no such problem.
