Recently I switched to Firefox from chrome.It is better than before.But it lacks some customizable features.Like I can't set a Firefox homepage wallpaper.It is the simplest thing every browser has.But I know that I can do so by setting a custom URL as home page.but I would literally like to have that feature in the default homepage.I don't know if any options are there or not,but it would be great.And the read aloud feature that is in chrome is also not available in Firefox.This is the feature i use a lot while reading books online. And these are the minor customizable features that I would like to have.

hi, i just installed ubuntu 20.04 LTS. I am not running any extensions or add-ons, just default settings. I can't play any youtube video that is considered 'live'. I can watch any other video on youtube, however. For the 'live' videos, I get a message: 'Your browser can't play this video, learn more' And when I click learn more, it says my browser is up to date. I tried streaming other videos from websites like crunchyroll.com and none work. I followed some suggestions to clear cache, turn on video/audio settings, etc. but nothing is working. Please assist. thanks.

Hello

Should Firefox be syncing between installations on different platforms?

On my Windows Firefox, I have the CamelCamelCamel extension and the Facebook containers extension, but on Linux those aren't being picked up!

What am I missing? When I force it to Sync on Manjaro Linux, it says it is all synced up, but those extensions I mentioned aren't coming through!

Thanks

OK, I've selected automatic updates for Firefox. MacBook Air. So, I need to restart in order for the update to INSTALL. I can't just close and re-open Firefox to get the update. After I restarted, Youtube would not play. AGAIN. This happens with EVERY update. So, following instructions from an entry on the web, I erased my history. OK, now Youtube plays. But I notice I've lost my bookmarks in the process. I've mentioned this before. What's the secret to getting you experts to pay attention to this annoying, recurring thing? I would not have lost my bookmarks if I did not have to erase my history. Why can't updates be provided that will allow me to play youtube and KEEP my bookmarks--- like on every other day??? Thank you.

I'd like to keep the search prompt but would much prefer to have my local website (amazon.it). I've fiddled a bit with settings but cannot find an option to modify the extension: is this possible?

Thanks.

I use the Bookmarks Toolbar for all of my desktop bookmarks. I frequently create new bookmarks or refile bookmarks by dragging them and dropping them into the appropriate subfolder in the toolbar. While navigating through multiple layers of bookmark subfolders, I often accidentally slide the new bookmark a few pixels above or to the side of the submenu, briefly hovering over the browser window surrounding the expanded menus. After a fraction of a second, all of the submenus collapse and I have to start over.

Is there any ui tweak available to insert a delay into this submenu collapse? I have already tried changing ui.submenuDelay and ui.click_hold_context_menus.delay, but neither of those had any effect on this issue.

I don't see anymore comments from other Instagram users in my comment section (the one with a heart icon). This only happened for the last three days or so. I used to be able to read comments form other users, but now when I click on the heart icon, I get a message that says "fail to upload". Now I have to remember which photos I looked and commented and go to the particular photos to see if anyone has made any comments. Why is this happening?

I just added a new Firefox installation to my Firefox account. I did so by clicking on sync settings, in order to have a chance to modify the settings before sync started. As expected, I was first prompted to sign in to my Firefox account. I was then invited to install Firefox on my smartphone, which doesn't interest me. Since I found no option to dismiss this completely, I clicked on "remind me later". Then, instead of opening Sync settings as I expected, Firefox began to sync immediately. In fact the activity blocked Firefox for a while, preventing me from accessing sync settings at all. After getting into the settings, I disabled some things in sync settings, but don't know what undesired "cross-fertilization" may have already occurred between my Firefox installations. How can I find out? How can I get control of Firefox's syncing behaviour? There is a prominent "Sync now" button in the sync settings, but this only makes sense to me if there is some way to stop automatic syncing and make Firefox wait for me to click the button. How can I suspend automatic sync and make Firefox wait for a manual sync command?
