I am trying to get this command to work

"C:\Program Files\Firefox Developer Edition\firefox.exe" -url "C:\page.html?parameter=hi"

this results in firefox navigating to file:///C:/page.html%3Fparameter=hi

I have to manually change the %3F to ? to get it to work. I noticed everything works fine when navigating to a web based url with js parameters. It only seems to be local file problem. Can someone point me to a solution?

Thanks

I've just received an email on my - previously - main email address (let's say: e1), about a data breach on another (e2) email address of mine.

When I log in to Firefox Monitor, with my main email address (e3), only that email address is displayed as monitored. The whole list (I don't know, 10+ addresses) that should be monitored, is gone.

Can someone explain to me a. why is the mail not send to the main email address and b. where is my list of monitored email addresses?

I've ran apt remove --purge firefox and completely deleted the ~/.mozilla directory, reinstalled and still get a Mozilla Crash Reporter window.

If I try to run firefox from terminal I get: (Running in safe mode (firefox --safe-mode) makes no difference.)

   [GFX-]: glxtest: libpci missing.  

I haven't made any config or extension changes since it stopped working, and not sure what could be causing this. I don't mind starting from scratch, just need Firefox back. :)

Hello everyone. I noticed a small problem on my own. When I open a channel on YouTube, the video that is on the main page of the channel I went to starts by itself. I know this is normal. But when I then go to another channel in YouTube, the video from the main page of the first channel continues to be launched. I went to listen to the radio on the channel, but the music and sound from the previous video got mixed, they started to sound together. I'm using Linux Mint 20.1 and I don’t know how things are on Windows. So I think the problem is hidden in the browser itself.

About once every 3 times, my mouse cursor will visually disappear when uploading files. It's still there and functioning, I just can't see it. This happens at any site where I need to upload such as voices.com, voice123.com or ACX (I do voice work). It started with a Logitech M330 mouse and continues to happen with a Nexus Wired 5D optical mouse. Machine is a 2021 M1 Mac Mini. The firmware on the logitech is up to date. Haven't checked on the Nexus yet but THAT mouse is working except the problem described in this post. Not seeing the problem when uploading files in Safari. Just Firefox. That being said, the sample size is much bigger with Firefox so I will keep using Safari to see if the problem pops up there. I want to rule out an issue with Firefox.

It seems Mozilla has removed the SSB option from firefox. I used that all the time and without it, I have had to revert to using chrome, which I don't want to do. Wny remove a feature? Its buggy? So what. A buggy hidden beta feature is better than no feature at all. It has users, including me. So just leave it as unsupported. Don't just axe it.

As to it having "no benefit". Absolutely the opposite - in a world where every app is now a cloud web app, we need to be able to separate different apps within windows, not just have multiple indistinguishable windows or tabs for each of the apps. So yes this was a seriously retrograde decision, and one which is sending firefox in a backward direction. SSB was the future. It's just few people were aware.

So when are mozilla going to reverse this decision? Does anyone know any other clever way to achieve the same thing - i.e. a separate fixed app for each webpage.

My Firefox version is 86.0 on Mac. OS Version is 11.2.2 Big Sur.

I found that basically all color rendered in Firefox is more vibrant than Safari and Chrome, maybe Firefox doesn't handles color management right and renders sRGB in full P3 color space, lead to a over saturate color for almost every element on webpage.

Hopes firefox can fix this soon, I love the efficiency and privacy features on Firefox, This is the only bit I found a little uncomfortable.

You can test your browser here: https://cameratico.com/tools/web-browser-color-management-test/ if you have a P3 support Mac or Windows.

I am not able to see live Streaming MJPEG video from both of my cameras on my new Samsung S21 Ultra. I had an S10 Plus and Firefox played both cameras video stream just fine. Odd thing is FireFox Focus plays both video streams like I experienced on my S10. But I have to login manually every time. I want to have the convenience of reg FireFox remembering user names etc. Any help is appreciated.

Today I tried to update Firefox through the Help/About Firefox dialog. The update from 85 to 86 appeared to go fine. I got the Click to Restart Firefox and complete Update button, and the application restarted when I clicked the button. However, opening the Help/About Firefox dialog again displays the message "Firefox is being updated by another instance". It is not, so it appears that this update has not completed correctly, and, in this state, I suspect that further updates won't work either. Has anyone else seen this issue?
