I'm trying to use ecosia but something is blocking their ads on the browser. - Whitelisted it on Ublock Origin - Disabled Enhanced Tracking Protection to ecosia's url

I tried disabling a lot of privacy settings on about:config but it didn't solve. My add-ons that could affect something is Ublock Origin and User-Agent Switcher and Manager (i disabled this second and didn't solve either) What should i do?

When I start typing my cursor disappears. It does not reappear until I've clicked a few times or wiggled my mouse a lot. This is quite an inconvenience, and I've tried to find a solution for far too long now. This also does not seem to affect any other application other than Firefox.

I have set both widget.windows.hide_cursor_when_typing=false and hideCursorWhileTyping=false I have also verified that there are no OS-level options set for this behavior, although I feel the above settings should override OS settings.

System details: Firefox 121.0 64-bit Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu (non-snap) Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS Gnome 42.9 Experienced on both X11 & Wayland

Please let me know if any additional information is needed

Hi. The annual NORAD Santa Tracker website does not function properly under Firefox. While there are no issues with the 3D rendering itself, the 3D map is squished vertically toward the left side of the page. It appears to be defaulting to a mobile browser view. The only extension I have installed is uBlock Origin, and I turned it off for the NORAD Santa website, and the display issue persists.

Opening the site under Safari shows the Santa tracker taking up the entire browser window as it should do.

I'm currently on Mac OS Sonoma using the latest version of Firefox 121.0

Hello everyone!

For a couple of months now, Firefox has had no sound. T^T Uninstalling, reinstalling and resetting didn't seem to make an impact.

I did the "usual fixes" like rebooting, Windows (every sound, volume & device settings), checking for muted tabs and see if Firefox was wired to the right sound device etc, unfortunately to no result.

I even switched sound cards and reinstalled sound drivers but these worked fine everywhere else so it was unlikely they were the problem in the first place.

I think... I am a bit stuck! ^v^' I can share the full extended troubleshooting information if needed.

Thank you very much!

Hi, I just upgraded to W11 yesterday and having a weird issue with firefox. I have "combined task bar buttons and hide labels" set to NEVER yet firefox has a weird issue that no other open program has. I have firefox pinned to my taskbar (image 1.) When I click it (image 2) it's supposed to expand into a full size tab but it stays as just an icon.

But when I right click and open taskbar settings, firefox remembers that I have combine task bar set to off and correctly expands into a full tab (image 3.) I'm not sure if this is a firefox issue or a general windows issue. Thanks for any info anyone can provide.

Within the Add-on Manager by clicking Manage Extension Shortcuts - you can make shortcuts for add-ons to perform specific functions via the buttons on your keyboard, but I want to actually be able to use the buttons on my actual mouse rather than the keyboard.

Does anybody know if this is possible? Currently when I try to use my mouse to input a 'shortcut' in the 'Type a shortcut' box nothing works.

Are there any about:config settings or add-ons that can enable me to use my Mouse to make shortcuts for my add-ons?

Is it possible to combine history/bookmark files? Firefox has truncated my "History" to 15 days and the only option I see to get elder entries is to combine a backupped history file with the current one. An easy-to-use tool for this task would be welcome. I did not change my config options after the update to 121.0.1 (64-Bit) (Windows 10pro) but I think I had the total history (from years) before the update. My current Options related to this topic are: browser.history_expire_days false places.history.expiration.max_pages false places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages 501234 privacy.clearOnShutdown.history false privacy.history.custom true history (*) Boolean Number String

I already sreened Help files of this Forum concerning lost history data but they all do not give sufficient answers or I do not understand them (as a German user). Thanks. Martin

Hi, Folks. When I open "manage bookmarks" (Library), why does it always open at "other bookmarks"? This is at the very bottom of the alphabetical list (and empty) so I always have to scroll back up to the top. I've got a lot of bookmarks, so this is extremely irritating. How do I change this? I've searched for an answer. The only likely solutions suggest removing the "other bookmarks" folder, but the description of how to do that doesn't work. Nowhere can I find a "remove other bookmarks" option. And the delete option is greyed out.

I don't necessarily need to hide or remove it, as long as I can get the bookmarks manager/Library to open at the top, ie. "Bookmarks Menu".

Cheers, Ian

I have just encountered another of Mozilla's unwanted, unneeded changes.The three simple little characters that almost all programs show in the upper right hand corner on the screen. These are long standing and well understood icons that were easy to use to manage your windows. Need to switch between program windows? Press the - key. Need to enlarge the screen to its fullest, press the open box, finished working with this program/screen, just click the x-box. Pressing the "open box" would adjust the screen so you could use the cursor to make the screen the siz you needed.

It's not just that these features work and are understood, Mozilla makes changes with no explanation, no other options for doing the same thing (exception: I can close the window with File> Exit (or Close)

I just spent a week getting Thunderbird115+ to "work" and now I have to figure out how to recreate what I've lost on Firefox? Like other people seeking support have said, I want the Firefox I know back.

Hello

I got a new Asus Vivobook Core i9 16G Ram I did the basic Windows 11 installation for the Laptop and installed TotalAV.

After all Windows 11 updates passed, I wanted to install FireFox anf got this issue: Firefox cannot start correctly (0xc0000022) after version ..

I tried several time to close all Firefox task, uninstall, remove all files from existing profiles (local, roaming, etc...) so as all files under "Programs"". I made sure to get the latest code, but I always get back to this issue.

While opening FireFox, I immediatly get a Crashed Tab reported. Even the Settings are not opening in a Tab.

I even tried to use a older version. Same issue... Never the less I can Update the older version in "About FireFox".

After update I see 122 installed

I used FireFox for many years, and wanted to continue.. In the meantime I installed Opera

Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance Laurent

I have an extension called Gesturefy that allows you to use mouse gestures to do things like navigate through tabs, perform searches, etc. The problem is that on Mozilla pages, these gestures are not allowed for security reasons, as the developer explains: "Gesturefy does not work on Mozilla related pages like addons.mozilla.org, internal pages like about:addons or other add-on option pages (e.g. moz-extension://*). This is because Firefox restricts add-ons from accessing these pages for security reasons."

Is it possible to disable these restrictions for this specific extension or in general?

In the about:profiles page I can see that the Root Directory for my current profile is: /home/username/.mozilla/firefox/no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978 When I click the Open Directory button it does nothing. When I manually navigate to /home/username/.mozilla/firefox I can see that there is no folder there called no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978

The Local Directory is show as: /home/username/.var/app/org.mozilla.firefox/cache/mozilla/firefox/no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978 This exits and opens with the Open Directory button.

If I search for no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978 in the file manager, I see that there are two folders with this name, on at the Local Directory path shown above and the other at: /home/username/.var/app/org.mozilla.firefox/.mozilla/firefox My assumption is that this is actually the Local Folder (it contains files with today's date)

My question is, why does about:profiles show the wrong path for the Local Directory or why is the actual Local Directory in the wrong place (it appears that the path shown in about:profiles is the normal default location)?

I tried creating a new profile and it was created in exactly the same way: the Local directory path is: /home/username/.var/app/org.mozilla.firefox/.mozilla/firefox but about:profiles says it is: /home/username/.mozilla/firefox

I would rather have my profile in the normal default location but I want to ensure that I don't leave pointers to the wrong location that could cause problems.

I am running Firefox 121.0 (64-bit) from flathub on Debian GNU/Linux 12 (bookworm).

Any help appreciated.

There is a pop window of a smaller video screen that shows in the lower right corner

Autoplay is disabled

Is there a specific setting to stop this functionality of the pop up video window to appear? Is the block pop up window functionality in the same category of this description supplied above?

I do not care about MSNBC, I just want to know why I cannot live stream on MSNBC in case I run in to other channels that may not work I would like to solve the issue or I guess I can just uninstall Firefox and call it a day if it is just the browser.

The audio does work, but the video is the start up or splash photo for MSNBC

Firefox will stream on NBC and I can stream MSNBC using Chrome and Edge.

I resent all of the setting in Firefox to default, and I turned off all of the extensions.
