Hello,

I urgently ;-) need a shortcut to switch between open browser windows. It seems to be one of the basic ones, but is nowhere to be found.

Solutions using Tilde do not work for me becuse it's not available on my Apple keyboard.

Why not use Command +< or Command + > respectively, like many other apps do?

And why not at least let me configure that in a simple fashion myself???

Thanks for any solution!

After starting Firefox. If I navigate to a page to soon it jumps back to the start page again (about:blank for me). Like it's restaring again somewhat. Just before the page is reste there seems like a windows opening in the bottom right but it closes before I manage to see content. Only add-on I have i uBlock Origin. Do you have any idea why this is happening. Is there some log I can look at or enable to see what is really happening? 73.0b7 x64 on Windown 10

Download files directly without showing the Opening window

Hi, whenever I want to download something, Firefox shows me a Opening window. If I mistakenly select the "Open with" button, a file is downloaded to my /tmp/ directory and then opened with an application, which takes a huge amount of RAM for stuff like iso.

The another thing is that it's very annoying and takes a lot of time if you want to download many files from many websites. You have to manually choose save file for all the files you download, and the "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" option is greyed out.

Is there a way disable the "Opening" window and just download the files I wish to download?

On my PC, whenever I click on any links in any external program, all links open in Chrome. Even though, I've checked that FF is my default program. Also checked that chrome is NOT my default program. Have also tried making chrome default and then back to Firefox as default. Have also tried setting FF as default in Windows>> Default Programs. But nothing is working. I've even tried making IE as default from Control Panel, yet Chrome opens. I've noted 1 thing that Chrome is not there in Control Panels> Programs & Features list.

I wrote an application that dynamically creates report and (using the printElement jQuery plugin) prints them to either a printer or to PDF.

$('.print-container').printElement({

   pageTitle: $('div.edit-title').text(),
   overrideElementCSS:[ 'print_css', { href:'css/print.css', media:'print' } ]
});

This has worked well for 5 years but, over the last weekend, even with the config set to print.print_bgcolor = true, no background colours or images are being printed any more. This happens with printing to a printer or to a PDF file.

Good day all,

When I try to send email using Outlook web from the Firefox browser, I often get a failed to send error message. When I deactivate AVG I'm once again able to send a message. This doesn't happen when I use other browsers like Chrome or Internet explorer. There seems to be a compatibility issue with Firefox. Anyway around this? Thanks.

Firefox used to facilitate an excellent addin called Password Exporter. It has since been deemed Legacy and is no longer supported... While Firefox's embedded password manager has the capability to import passwords from other browser platforms, there is no provision to import my 270 passwords kept in an xml file created by Password Exporter. After a fresh install of Windows 10, I now have to open the password xml file with "notebook" and search for the required password...

One would think such an advanced program as Firefox there would be provisions afforded users to import and export passwords from and to a data file, preferably an xml file. No one saves 270 passwords on stickup notes. Everyone removes and reinstall Firefox...

Mozilla.... Please address this problem... The multitudes will be grateful.... How long could it take your code writers to install this feature in your next upgrade???

With all the news about websites setting up invisible boxes to harvest logins & passwords, I only want to be signed in to my master when I want to sync my tabs or enter a password for a specific site; and then I want to be signed out again, without having to quit FF.

Is this possible? And if not, it SHOULD BE!

This is similar to reported roblem with facebook pages but my facebook pages don't freeze. This started a couple of updates (latest beta) ago and can be worked around by using task manager ot close the plugin container task until a page is changed in the problem website. Thus this is very annoying and persistant.

I am using the latest version of Firefox Developer Edition (62.0b2). Up until recently operation of the bookmark properties (right-click on a bookmark) remained identical to the old standard Firefox. I used the properties to store various information about a link (typically user name and hint of password). But some time within the past few weeks an update to Developer Edition included a complete overhaul of bookmark properties and all of mine were deleted. Can anyone explain what is happening and I can restore my bookmark properties?

Hi, I'm currently on the 'beta' channel of firefox quantum ( Version 62.0b 16 (32-bit) ) for windows, for some reason..my login information for the lastpass password manager addon isn't saved. Everytime I open the browser I always have to re-login, when I use a different browser such as google chrome, my login information is always retained..why does this occur while using firefox ?? Thanks, David
