When I view the blitzortung.org (live lightning map) website I do not hear any sounds associated with the lightning strikes. The normal sound is a very short duration "click". The sound is present when using other browsers but I really hate using Chromium (don't like Google). I am running Debian Linus 10 and I nominally use Firefox ESR. I have downloaded the regular Firefox and the problem occurs with Firefox 80 as well as with ESR 68.12.0.

By opening the PulseAudio mixer while the blitzortung site is opened I have observed that there is a brief flash of the AudioIPC server that coincides with the lightning strike "clicks". My guess is that the AudioIPC server response time is the issue.

Is there any way to get around this issue.

Sound works fine for every other web site.

Hello! I have recently installed Xubuntu Focal Fossa, and noticed that Firefox became slow along the way. At first, I didn't know what was the reason, but now, after having purged it and reinstalled it again for the second time, I am pretty sure that it is disabling the title bar which is causing the problem. Enabling it again and restarting the browser makes everything smooth once more. Is there a solution to this? Thank you very much!

Could not go through process of changing my password for a bank website, called bank, it was suggested to clear my history and cache in Firefox, I did so. This allowed the automated process of changing my password to process through ok. I could then not sign in to that website or another site with firefox. either auto sign in or manually entering my credentials. I can sign in to all my websites in MS Edge. Not in firefox. I have cleared my cache and the "Corrupt cache" file. also checked the error log and it is not being caused by a security certificate issue. Can anyone assist me? I would appreciate any help. It is not critical as I can sign in through a different browser and it is only happening on a couple websites but it is annoying. Thanks Art

I love having OneTab, but suddenly both the icon that creates a list from my open tab (usually on the R side of the toolbar) and the icon that opens my lists (usually on the L) are both gone. OneTab is still listed as an enabled add-on, and I've deleted and re-installed it multiple times, but the icons don't show up. I was once able to find "OneTab" on my add-ons list via the "hamburger" (not sure what to call it -- the three horizontal lines at the end of the toolbar), but it was the word only, no icon, and when I dragged it to the toolbar, nothing showed up. I LOVED using OneTab, and I miss it! How can I get it to show up?

I have a website, which has a simple script in the form of a javascript url that is supposed to redirect to a mailto address. This is, obviously, a simple attempt at preventing email harvesting/spamming. This link doesn't work as expected. The link opens in a new tab, but the link isn't parsed and handled. Works as expected on Microsoft Edge. Is this expected behavior? Is there a workaround?

Does anyone have any ideas? Has anyone had the same problem? Just with Facebook? When I load each tab separately, it loads fast. But when I right-click the folder containing the 7 sites and choose Open all in Tabs, this happens. On my workstation at the office they load almost instantaneously. I have rebuilt my Windows profile for good measure, even though when I logged in and tried this in my Administrator profile, I have the same issue. I have disabled the 5 Firefox add-ons and tried - same thing.:-(

I have followed all the tips at this page, to no avail: https://www.greengeeks.com/tutorials/article/increase-firefox-page-loading-speed/

New to FireFox and have a quick question. In Safari, there is an option to have a new window or tab open to the same page you are currently in. I see in the preferences how to make a new window or tab open to a specific URL or a blank page, but I want neither. I want a new window/tab to mimic exactly what I have in the current window when I open that new tab/window. How can I do this?

Thanks!

I am having a problem with Dark Mode in Firefox, in particular Google Search Images. I am using Windows 10 version 2004 and Firefox 81.0 using Default Add-on. I have also enabled the Dark and Light Add-ons; same problem.

If I run a Google Search for <Images>, the thumbnail images may not show depending on the setting. I cannot get the thumbnails to show with a dark background. They are downloaded because if I switch to Windows App Light setting they do show. If I select one of the 'blank' images in Google Search, the image appears to the right. The problem only appears to be affecting Google Search Images. Other web sites seem ok at this stage.

The Windows App Dark/Light Mode setting has no effect on the Google Search page. It seems to be fully controlled by Firefox. I attach three images from Google Search with a summary of the Options\Colours tab for each:

Image 1. White text on black; override Always Image 2. Use System Colours; override Always Image 3. Use System Colours or not; override Never

If you need any more information, please ask.

Thanks

I have fully reinstalled Acrobat and Firefox, after uninstalling with App Cleaner and Uninstaller... the 4 entries remain.

I am using Firefox 78.3.0esr on MacOS 10.15.6 and the latest version on Acrobat PRO

Firefox relay isn't working at all. I wanted to test the service, so I created a ProtonMail and PayPal account to give it a shot. I set up my newly created ProtonMail as my primary e-mail address on my Firefox account, so that relay forwards e-mails to that address. I then created a PayPal account using one of relay's e-mails. That went no issues. Then when PayPal asked me to confirm my e-mail address, things went south. Despite relay's counter of "forwarded e-mails" going up, nothing was showing up on my ProtonMail inbox. I checked on my previous e-mail and still nothing. I saw in the details of the relay e-mail that it was indeed supposed to be forwarding mails to the ProtonMail address, but it wasn't working at all. This isn't a problem with PayPal nor ProtonMail. I received Firefox's e-mails asking me to confirm the primary e-mail change, so ProtonMail is working. Furthermore, when PayPal sends me confirmation e-mails, the counter in relay goes up, so PayPal is sending them and relay is receiving them, but they ain't coming into my ProtonMail inbox... nor spam. Solutions?
