Hi, when using the --search option with firefox in the command line a new window is opened regardless of whether the 'open in new tab instead of new window' option is checked in settings or whether the --new-instance option is added.

Is there a way around this? I'm trying to have a command that would make a search in a new tab of the current instance of Firefox.

Thanks.

Hiya,

I use a theme which some years ago (after a change in the way Firefox handles dark-mode preferences) changed all UI and websites to use dark-mode. I was able to keep using the theme, and mostly override this behavior by setting:

`layout.css.prefers-color-scheme.content-override = 1`

However, this didn't take for some components, such as the sidebar and bookmark editor window, which still continue to use dark-mode.

Is there any way to completely disable dark-mode everywhere, and still use my preferred theme?

Cheers, Afraz

I used to be able to view all of my Firefox history but I noticed today that when I searched for old tabs, they wouldn't show up. When I went to view manage history to look, I found that there are only history tabs for Today, Yesterday, and Last 7 days. There is no more all history and I can't find anything older than 7 days ago. I looked at my privacy preferences and it's still set for Firefox to remember all history. Entering troubleshoot mode did nothing to fix the issue, either. How can I make it so Firefox remembers history older than 7 days? Why did it stop?

I especially don't want windows pop-up I didn't ask for, even if they offered me 100€ for free. Please help or I can't go on using this nice browser. Thank you.

Using Ubuntu 22.04. I can upload and download files from /tmp and also from any directory on the home partition (or symlinked entirely within the home partition). However, I have a data partition with symlinks in the home partition, and Firefox throws a permissions error when I try to read or write from or write to one of those symlinked directories. So far, Firefox is the only app that exhibits this behavior.

I believe I need to change the "Security Context" in Firefox, but I haven't been able to figure out how to do that.

I describe the problem more fully here:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/1487763/firefox-cant-read-or-write-to-directories-symlinked-across-partitions

I will have to abandon Firefox if I can't fix this.

Thanks!

Hi,

I am using Linux Mint 20.3, 64-bit and both Firefox and Chrome are not loading images for me on certain websites (i.e. okcupid). In particular, I am noticing that images will actually load for a split second and then disappear moments later.

I've tried disabling my adblockers, deleting my cookies and cache, running Firefox in Troubleshoot and Diagnose mode, running Chrome in Incognito mode, and evening uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. Still the issue persists.

I followed the advice here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fi ... s-not-show

Any advice or suggestions would be most welcome.

Thanks, Chris

Hello,

Amazon Prime no longer saves my place in TV series I'm watching. If I was 15 minutes in on episode 9 of something, when I came back it would still be in the same place, even months later. Now it doesn't do that anymore, even if I come back a few minutes later.

Amazon says Amazon Prime does not work very well on Firefox, and my issue does work fine on the other browsers, but I don't want to use them if I can avoid it. Firefox works fine for Hulu and Netflix and the others. I don't have any other issues with Firefox other than this one.

Does anyone know anything about this and possibly how to make it work like it used to?

Thank you.

Whenever I try to watch a video or stream (any site) I can watch the video just fine as long as the audio is muted. However, when I unmute the idea, the video pretty much stops (can stutter a little bit) and the audio plays a roughly 5 second loop of when it was unmuted. This happens on all sites, all formats of videos.

For some reason I keep getting signed out of every website, sometimes while I'm still browsing the website. I tell it to stay logged in and remember me but it does not work. It is particularly annoying with whatsapp because it considers each new login as a separate device. Is this a setting I can turn off? A bug on ublock or adblocker? please help

Hi, I am running Windows 10 on PC and my Firefox browser keeps crashing for no apparent reason. I only had a translate extension but since turning that off it still does it. Yesterday (02/10/2023 - 23:45) I got an error pop up "minidump-analyser.exe - Application Error. The exception Breakpoint. A breakpoint has been reached. (0x80000003) occured in the application at location 0x00007FFE7200276E. Click OK to terminate this program." Today (03/10/2023 16:06) after less than an hour from switch on I got another error pop up "SwUSB.exe - System Error. A new guard page for the stack cannot be created." I thought I was reasonably tech savvy but I'm am baffled by this. Please can anyone help?
