Hi,

First of all, I should ask: Is there a such feature gained with settings or addons that highlights my previous tab, that I didn't closed, but moved from to current tab?

For example: I have 20 tabs opened. And I'm lurking between them so I need to know what was the previous tab where I was before moved to the current tab.

If this feature does not exists I kindly offer to implement it.

Thanks

I tried to access a U California Master Gardener website: https://ncmg.ucanr.org/. I've accessed this for years. Yesterday, when on my Mac using Firefox, I'd get message, "SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE." (I attached screenshot.) I tried closing Firefox and reopening, cleared all browser history and other cache, and substituted "www" for "https:/" No change. I thought it was the website until I found that I can still access it on Firefox using my iPhone. (I can also access it via Chrome.)

Please advise.

Thanks! Chrissy

When clicking on a link to an .mp4 file, Firefox navigates to a builtin video player, streaming the remote video file. When Firefox is unable to stream or display a file (as is the case with .mkv or .txt for example), it is downloaded instead.

I simply want .mp4 files to be downloaded when I navigate to them. I tried setting `media.mp4.enabled` to `false`, and that worked, but it also disabled most embedded media players.

Is there a way so that when I’m using private windows that the managed passwords will work? Even ever I’m in a private window I have to enter user ids and passwords for sites that I have the passwords saved. If I go to a normal window it works fine. This makes using private windows too annoying at times to even use.

Hi,

I recently developed a Firefox browser extension using Manifest V3, it's to show coupons & offers on 1000s of online shopping website.

To function properly, the extension needs to have permission for 'Access your data for all websites' ( <all_urls> permission)

During installation, permission prompt does show up, but it doesn't ask permission for 'Access your data for all websites' but ask for other permission.

I have specified this permission in the permissions key in my manifest file. However, when I try to install the extension, It asks for other permission, but not <all_urls> permission: Screenshot at https://i.imgur.com/UiG5Dve.png

After installation, it start working properly only if user has manually granted permission from extension settings https://i.imgur.com/4QWOLOC.png Most users would not know this and may uninstall the extension if permission is not granted prior.

Please suggest the fix.

Here is how my Manifest V3 permission code look like https://i.imgur.com/JmMM3l2.png

I am using Firefox latest version and I have checked with/without any other extensions or add-ons that may be impacting the installation process.

I would greatly appreciate any help or guidance in resolving this issue. I believe the permission prompt is crucial for my extension to function properly and I would like to get it working as soon as possible.

Thank you for your time and assistance.

Best regards,

Krishna

Specifically this error message was just obtained on macOS Ventura 13.1 on my Intel based MacBook Pro using Firefox 109.0.1. It happens on all Windows machines I tried, on my iPad and iPhone.

I saw at least a million similar questions similar to this one, even more advices on how to address it - and no answer helps.

Good evening Community,

I have a prolem with my firefox browser since about 3 weeks. So I hope somebody around here can help me with that. Somehow it occurred that HTML5 videos need very long to load. Sometimes it even shows me the message that I should restart the browser. I really cant find the problem. I have the newest version: 109.0.1 (64-Bit) I deletet the cache. I also didnt install any Plugins or addons. Since the problem occured.

I tried other Browsers on my Computer and it works just fine. By the way I also have a pretty new Computer, the specs are fine.

The only thing I didnt try, is to reinstall Firefox. Because i have a couple of tasks opened which I dont want to lose or put in booksmarks. But that also cant be the problem. Because I always had around 10-20 tasks opened in the past.

I hope somebody can help me or had the same problem and knows how to fix it.

Sorry for my bad englisch.

Nice regards. BS

I was looking for a solution to the VERY ANNOYING problem of having Firefox download PDFs I simply wanted to read from Firefox but not keep. I found the solution to that problem created by the Firefox devs themselves (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1370409#answer-1488645) and was going to leave it alone. It was just yet another obscure about:config setting to FIX a regression introduced by Firefox devs, no biggie, ALL firefox users are used to doing that by now since devs keep implementing solutions that look for problems instead of the other way around, but then someone said that you guys might get rid of the ability to disable this in the future. PLEASE DON'T. This "new way" of doing things is filling up MY HOME folder on Linux, not even my download folder. Instead of getting rid of this setting why don't you MAKE IT EXPLICIT in the downloads section. It's the least you can do since you created a problem that solves nothing. Most users who can't remember to download a pdf they were looking at won't remember how to look for it in the downloads folder either. You will just clutter people's download folder with JUNK for no reason and eat at their storage. I'll say it once and I'll say it again: the biggest advocates for Firefox's rival browsers are Firefox devs themselves smh.

Hello,

I downloaded Firefox on a new computer. I logged in with my existing account and synced my data

This was successful. All of my bookmarks and extensions were downloaded properly.

I went into the customize menu to alter my toolbar. However, there were no icons for any of the extensions that I added, such as Bitwarden or Ublock Origin.

Due to this, I am not able to add these extension icons to my toolbar.

I verified that the extensions were all properly downloaded and that they work as they should.

I have already attempted to restart Firefox, uninstall and reinstall certain extensions, and to reinstall Firefox entirely. However, my extension icons do not show up still in the Customize menu

I am not trying to do anything in the Private Browser.

How can this issue be resolved?

Hello,

I need your help: how can I set navigation bar without any item (hide all items of this bar)? I need that this bar appears but empty. The reason is that I want to restrict options in Firefox (for all users) but let it be allowed open windows pop-up.

I got remove the menu button that is to the right of the whole (hamburger type), the forward and backward buttons that are to the left of the whole (which are the arrows to the right and to the left), the detention (which is the cross), etc. I did this with commands in userChrome.css file

But what I can't hide is the item where the url's are placed (search box). I just need to hide the search box. I wrote " #nav-bar { visibility: collapse !important ; } " in userChrome.css , and then all navigation bar is hidden but don't get windows of pop-up that I need them to appear.

The version of Firefox that I have is 108.0.1 (64 bits).

Could you help me, please? It's a little urgent. Thanks!!

I use a search bar in Firefox's toolbar for searching and my defauly search engine is Google. When I type on this, sometimes I get search suggestions that I never searched for (and I am not using a shared computer). For example when I type "how do you" in the bar, I get suggestions like "how do you ne demek" ("what does how do you do mean" in Turkish) as in the attached picture. I have never searched for these queries, yet they appear with a history icon next to them, implying I have searched for them. Why is this happening?

I've tried using the same bar with something other than Google as the active search engine (Mozilla Support for example), and when I type "how do you", none of these false suggestions appear; and only what I have actually searched for in the past appears. Furthermore, when I type in "ne demek" like in the suggestion, I *also* don't get the same suggestion.

So there's something wrong with how Firefox relays data from Google's suggestions. In fact, I use neither Firefox nor Google in Turkish and yet keep getting geolocation-matched suggestions in Turkish like this, sometimes with and sometimes without the history icon; which did not use to happen a few years ago. Is this a personal problem I can fix somehow, or is this a general bug?
