I'm having trouble sharing my screen with Firefox 87 on Ubuntu 20.04.2.

What happens when I go to share, the "Will you allow <site> to share your screen" window pops up. "Select a Window or Screen" is autofilled, but I cannot hit 'allow' (it is greyed out). When I click the dropdown, the "Select a Window or Screen" option is greyed out, and my only other option is "Use Operating System Settings". When I select this I can hit "allow", but no other options pop up and my screen is not shared, although firefox seems to think so (shows the orange symbol at top, site privacy settings show sharing allowed).

Does anybody know where the ID: 308046B0AF4A39CB comes from?

If you use a Windows 10 1909 64 Bit and you can find this in the installs.ini and in the profiles.ini of users, if you have a Firefox ESR 64 Bit in Version 78.10.0 installed. The INI-Files looks like this:

Installs.ini: [308046B0AF4A39CB] Default=Profiles/8U9skky2.default-esr Locked=1

Profiles.ini: [Install308046B0AF4A39CB] Default=Profiles/8U9skky2.default-esr Locked=1

[Profile0] Name=default-esr IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/8U9skky2.default-esr

[General] StartWithLastProfile=0 Version=2

This ID can vary if you have a 32 bit ESR-installation as well and the only place I could find it is in the registry

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mozilla\Firefox\TaskBarIDs] C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox=308046B0AF4A39CB

But also here it differs sometimes.

I need to know where the ID comes from and if I can rely that if this ID is used, I will always address the Firefox ESR 64 Bit no matter which version.

Hi, FF 89.0b2 Developer edition now contains a "fake editable" search field at the home page (the sentence contains in the class attribute so I used it here), when one start typing in it and the letters appear in the address bar.

For me personally this is partly non-intuitive partly annoying. I never met a scenario in UI of other programs, when typing in one place (where the caret is) show actual letters at another place.

Is this feature is here to stay or are there plans to to make it customizable? I used ff home page search for ages, now I installed a new tab home page extension with manually setting www.google.com in it.

Thanks

Hi!

I decided to add a secondary email address to my Firefox-account, and then swap it with my primary address. After that I wanted to delete the secondary address (that I´m only supposed to use at work), in order to add a new email-address. However, by clicking "save" a red alert message was saying "Email already exists". This confuses me, as it is not shown in my settings! I´ve checked the email-address (which I use since the  late 90s) and it works fine...and I might have tried to do the same operation several years ago. 

Sincerely, Carlo.

Hi,

I am using custom links ('thunderlink://...') with a registered handler. This always worked well and still does.

However it seems like the newest releases of firefox (not sure when exactly it started) open a new tab, with just the link in the address bar, before calling the handler. Which leaves me with unnecessary, blank, open tabs.

Any idea how I can suppress the opening on a new tab on such custom link?

Thanks!

Firefox appears to have just updated. Now my bookmarks list is so long I have to scroll down to see everything. It looks like everything has been spaced out further, which I hate. It takes up was too much space. They were probably going for a more elegant, less cluttered look, but it just ended up making things more aggravating for me. There should be a way to adjust or turn off the spacing feature. Any suggestions?
