Hi, good day/evening you all. Hey with a temporary disability I have a real need to limit my mousing and would love to see a feature request I could give a thumbs up on -- for the 3 line menu at the top right being accessible via keyboard. (Also at least some of the choices on it such as History via a hotkey -- after I have the main menu open. By the way I know about pressing Alt, then any of the hotkeys on the old school hidden menu bar -- I'm instead talking about the new always visible hamburger menu icon.)

Where would I search to see if there's been any discussion or progress on that? Bugzilla?

Sorry I'm new to this type of questioning. Any tips would be greatly appreciated and my body would appreciate it too! :-)

I'm using freshly-downloaded Firefox version 102.2 on a brand new laptop (Windows 11 Pro version 21H2), and every single extension is showing a "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt" message when I try to install. I have tried checking for updates, quitting and reopening firefox, restarting my computer, refreshing firefox, uninstalling and reinstalling firefox, as well as any and all combinations of those. I've scoured these message boards and nothing is working for me. Please help!

Am running 102.0 64-bit on Windows system; not sure about iPad, but just installed it today. It seems to be running fine on the iPad mini otherwise. How can I reach the Customize Toolbar pane on it?

Lorsque je veux regarder une émission en direct sur Arte.tv ou une émission en replay, le son n'est pas activé automatiquement. Je dois aller dans les réglages du son de mon interface Manjaro Linux Cinnamon pour activer le volume sonore qui est à zéro sur ce site. Je ne rencontre pas ce problème avec les sites de France Télévision (France 2 ou France 3). J'utilise la dernière version de Firefox v 101.0.1 64 bits

Screen 1 message: firefox.exe Entry point not found. Files(x86)Mozilla.firefox\xul.dll. Screen 2 message: couldn't load XPCOM. After repeated tries to get to firefox I deleted the icon and re-installeed a new copy of firefox.

As my computer skills are not great my question is can any of the old data/bookmarks be retrieved? And if so

how in very simple terms/pictures.

Problem/possibly relevant info:

  • yesterday evening, auto-fill for logins/passwords was working
  • when I opened my laptop (from standby) this morning, my welcome screen was frozen at last night's day/time when I lowered the lid so I restarted (press and hold power button; this happens all the time as of the past 6 months or so)
  • logins/passwords have now disappeared
  • Windows 10, Firefox v.102.0 (updated July 1st)

After 2 hours of trying to find answers, I've done/discovered the following:

  • followed steps here: https://lifehacker.com/how-to-recover-your-missing-firefox-passwords-1835616191 -- didn't work
  • I don't have other profiles and am not synced to another device
  • I've had no luck finding an "Old Firefox" folder
  • logins.json, logins.json-2.corrupt, and logins-backup.json all have the same timestamp (this morning) and file size
  • when I open logins.json and logins-back-up.json in Firefox, I get the following message: SyntaxError: JSON.parse: unexpected character at line 1 column 1 of the JSON data (I suspect this is where I'm in big trouble...)

I am very non-techy so any straightforward suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Otherwise, I guess I'll have to decide if I want to pay to get it fixed or go to the hassle of re-setting all my passwords. ;)

Thanks!

My OS is Pop! OS. Using 'Tidal' as a web based music streaming service and I play vids on YouTube. Every time a new song or video starts, or when I skip, rewind or do anything like that, it auto resets the volume level output in my sound settings to about 75 to 80 % of the max possible level. So basically, I have to adjust each and every new song by hand, it is infuriating. I block facebooknet in Umatrix and firebaseinstallation googleapis as well as google tag manager but nothing else. That's on Tidal, similarly I do not block essential cookies on YouTube, so I don't think that is the problem. I have a hunch that the answer is somewhere in about:config. If this is intentional, then I'm giving up hope. Thank you.

Since latest version update of Fire Fox, I'm unable to sign into OUTLOOK. I get to the Sign-in Screen, but when I toggle to enter password, page starts to reload login name/password, but page never loads. Tried multiple times in Fire Fox, but launching MS - EDGE I can get logged in and going immediately. Please advise.

Hi, this is a minor problem and more a quality-of-life thing, as there is no hard crash or bug per se. Context: I need to print a LOT of things every month for the job, so I download a LOT of PDFs.

Problem: When downloading a PDF, if I open it via the dropdown menu in the menubar, it opens, but immediately unfocuses Firefox. That's it. Why the unfocusing? Lol.

Limits: If I mark PDFs to open automatically (in the options) instead of downloading, then it opens fine and no loss of focus. Same thing if I open from a folder, it's set to open in Firefox and it does so, with no loss of focus. As far as I can tell, the issue appears only when opening from the download button/icon/dropdown menu from the menubar.

Suggestion 1) Adding a "Download AND Open in Firefox" option in the settings would be my ultimate greatest option but.... maybe not the best for cluttering millions of people's browser options. It's just what "I" want to do ;)

Suggestion 2) Trace where it loses focus and re-focus / prevent loss of focus when opening from the menu.
