Hi comunity.

I'm trying to use the Firefox ADMX GPO files wtih a Windows 2012 R2 domain controller. The GPO's are applied on my test system. I checked it with gpresult. But no rule are affected on Firefox. If I use "about:policies" the message is:

"Der Dienst für Unternehmensrichtlinien ist inaktiv." (The service for company guidelines is inactive.)

Version 78.9.0esr (64-Bit)

What is my mistake?

I'm looking forward to your reply.

Best regards Sven

Hi all,

Have a new Dell XPS, using Chrome as my primary browser.. however its a pig on power consumption. I recently switched back to Windows, was a iOS user for last 10 years.. Remember the good Windows XP Firefox days...

I am unable to go back using the track pad, my gesture when I swipe with two fingers from left to right doesn't work... However this works just fine on MS Edge, or on Chrome. I am able to scroll up and down, and zoom in and out of text using my track pad, but my back gesture doesn't work... Has anyone had this issue before?

All the best, GB

Which version of Firefox do I have to revert to that will allow me to put tabs under the address bar and not have tabs the same colour as the menu bar? I had the current version of Firefox installed, but after doing a Windows reset to the 20H2 version of Windows 10, the even newer version seems to be less customisable.

How to make Firefox automatically use a specific application when clicking on a link to a torrent file?

Firefox Browser 86.0.1 (32-bit) [Windows 8.1]

After installing Firefox, when clicking for the first time on a link to a torrent file, a dialog box "You have chosen to open" / "What should Firefox do with this file? (Open with... / Save File)" appeared. A day later, when clicking on another link to a torrent file, the same dialog box appeared, this time with the added checkbox option "Do this automatically for files like this from now on".

{About this, I wonder, why this checkbox option did not appear from the beginning. Is there a bug that prevents this checkbox option to appear in some circumstances? — Maybe the explanation for this is here.}

Now, after I check the option "Do this automatically for files like this from now on", and select to open a torrent file with a specific application, the torrent file is opened by that application. So far, so good.

After that, I expected, when clicking in Firefox on another link to a torrent file, that the dialog box "You have chosen to open" would NOT appear again, and that the torrent file would be opened directly in the chosen application. But no, that dialog box "You have chosen to open" appears again each time I click on a link to a torrent file (with the option "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" being checked). So that checked option to do it automatically from now on, is not effective.

After that, the Content Type "TORRENT file" has appeared in "Options/General/Files and Applications/Applications", with the option "Always ask" selected. The fact that this option is selected now, is not expected, because of the checking of "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" earlier on. After selecting the alternative option "Use other...", and then choosing a specific application from a list of helper applications for the Content Type "TORRENT file", the corresponding Action is now set to use that specific application.

After that, when clicking in Firefox on another link to a torrent file, the dialog box "You have chosen to open" appears again (with the option "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" being checked). So now again, that checked option to do it automatically from now on, is not effective. The same happens when clicking on other links to a torrent file.

Why is the checked option "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" not effective? Is this a bug, or is there something that I can do to make it effective?

{I tried whether the extension "Content-Type Fixer" could solve my problem, but this is not the case. When using this extension, it reported: "This content-type is already set up!"}

Hi there,

I wanted to sync my reading list via Pocket between multiple devices. On my iOS devices, this works fine but I cannot enable Pocket for Firefox on my Windows laptop. In about:config the setting for extensions.pocket.enabled is set false and is greyed out, so I cannot change it. I checked about:profiles and found two profiles, one in root and one in local directory. The one in the root directory has a prefs.js file, where extensions.pocket.enabled is apparently set to true (contrary to what is said in about:config).

I have done some googling but couldn't figure out why I cannot change the setting in about:config. I would very much appreciate your help. My laptop has Windows 10 and Firefox is of version 87.0. The laptop has an enterprise environment, so maybe some app or default setting is blocking the settings. However, I don't know what to look for, but I am granted admin rights to make changes if necessary.

Many thanks in advance.

Best, Nicolas

Widevine will revoke Widevine Content Decryption Module which is earlier than ver 4.10.2209.0. https://www.widevine.com/news

Google has already released new version of CDM. However, the version on Firefox 88.0b7 is still 4.10.1582.2. You can check on the following menu: [Add-ons and Themes]>[Plugin]>[Widevine Content Decryption Module]

My questions are: 1. When is new Widevine CDM coming to Firefox? 1. Can Add-on Manger provide this update to older Firefox?

I was wondering if there is a way to hide the titlebar (tabs, bookmarks, url, extensions, etc.) like fullscreen mode does while in windowed mode. A hotkey toggle would be preferred. Currently I am using some old CSS I found online but it's got some pretty glaring issues such as search suggestions being cutoff. Supposedly this was possible back in 2011 with an extension and something called "zombie mode" but the extension is no longer available (and most likely wouldn't work anymore). Thanks.

#navigator-toolbox {
    position: relative;
    z-index: 1;
    height: 3px;
    margin-bottom: -3px;
    opacity: 0;
    overflow: hidden;
}
#navigator-toolbox:hover {
    height: auto;
    margin-bottom: 0px;
    opacity: 1;
    overflow: show;
}
#content-deck{
    position:relative;

Firefox Dev Ed is a great browser for web development and tweaking CSS. But sadly it does not always show default property values.

A classic example of this is the
    element's default padding-left property. This apparently is set at 40px automatically unless overridden by the web designer. I think that ALL inherited or default properties of elements ought to be clearly shown in the inspect tool's styling listings. You could spend hours maddeningly trying to find the cause of some of these offsets to what you expected to display. The curious thing is that some inherited or default property values are shown on the inspect tool - which leads us to assume that what is seen on inspect is all that there is . . . This change should not be too difficult to implement. And it would be a great thing to have when searching down unexpected behaviour in webpage displays.
