Is there anyway to set my own zoom levels, like we used to be able to, you know, like 10 years ago?

I used to have my own zoom levels that went up 10% all the way to 300%, then started 25% intervals.

For example, my levels from 100% to 200% looked like this: 100%, 110%, 120%, 130%, 140%, 150%, 160%, 170%, 180%, 190%, 200%.

So, is there any way to do this now?

ADBLOCK CUSTOM FILTERS not working on this site WHAT THE HECK IS THAT AHAH WHAT??? ALSO THIS. After "Refresh"ing Firefox, it now by default saves a file with the page title, not the filename. I can no longer find out how to change this default behaviour (presumably I'd used an addon that has been deleted). This is extremely inconvenient - many archives have large numbers of filenames like "<number>.txt", e.g. "234567.txt", but all with the same title. I don't understand why keeping the old Firefox default was not made an option when you changed to saving by title!

Are those buttons (behind the "page actions" one) supposed to be definitively absent from version 90 on?

They seemed to me one of the most intelligent features in Firefox interface. Some can be added under "customize" option, but copy link and pint tab are not.

Is this removal based on the idea that addons are supposed to provide the same actions anyway?

Firefox ESR 78.11.0 version. For some reason lately a few users have been experiencing crashing of firefox. I'm tried going forward to 78.12.0 and backwards to 68.9 and it still keeps crashing. What could be some other fixes besides refreshing and running in safe mode. It still crashes performing both methods. Thank you!

Hi

I recently downloaded Firefox from the main download page https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/ The actual download link was: https://cdn.stubdownloader.services.mozilla.com/builds/firefox-stub/en-US/win/aeb02dfeae750c7fa2abe9c7bc07b48193110ac61e2169456253638270735d21/Firefox%20Installer.exe

I normally check my downloads using https://virusscan.jotti.org or https://virustotal.com before I run them with admin privileges. Anyway when I uploaded to http://www.virustotal.com the first thing I noticed was that it had never seen the hash before! (SHA1 hash is 3a974b7394597de41230f7517c293e4b6386eeab.) Once it was uploaded, it was promptly detected by the Cylance antivirus engine.

Can somebody please get in touch with Cylance? I suppose I could contact them myself; however, I prefer not to report it as a "false positive" on the off-chance that particular download actually is corrupted or I got a man in the middle- after all, it's surprising that VirusTotal has never seen this hash before.

Hi, Mozila Firefox team and Technical Support

Always experienced, the best browser "Firefox".

In Linux "RPM based", specially using Red Hat, Oracle Linux, Centos and may be in other distributions,

live streaming videos are not playing using YOUTUBE.

Firefox shows Error: "Your browser can't play this videos".

Note: In Ubuntu Linux, plays correctly no issue.

I recently subscribed to Norton after many recommendations since AVG is not as good as it once was. I have not been with Norton for over 20 years due to the issues of Norton and earlier Mac applications. However, now, it's like old times -- when I add the Mac El Capitan to be protected by Norton everything looks ok however, when I go to open a page in Firefox, it just becomes a blank page. It won't load.

So, in other words: HELP!

Should I request a refund? Please advise.

Lately you tube tutorials & videos play for a few seconds. than stop. The spinning wheel appears (presumably reloading) and than it continues but WITHOUT sound. Upon restarting Firefox it happens again and again, rendering it useless. If I use google chrome this phenomenon does not appear, same for Opera - only firefox. What to do?

Links to local filesystems on recent firefox versions without extensions(78+)

Hello, So I've been trying to activate local links which would open a local directory in file explorer. I'm trying to do this on a wiki based on MediaWiki running on a local Nginx sever(laragon). The links work as intended on IE, i.e, I click on the link and it opens a file explorer window with the linked directory. However nothing happens when I click on the link using Firefox. Instead I get this error message :

   Security Error: Content at http://url.com may not load or link to file://///.../directory.

I have tried adding these lines to prefs.js but it didn't have any effect : user_pref("capability.policy.policynames", "localfilelinks"); user_pref("capability.policy.localfilelinks.sites","http://localhost"); user_pref("capability.policy.localfilelinks.checkloaduri.enabled", "allAccess");

Is there any possible workaround to activate local links without using an extension?

When downloading a file, I use to get a pop-up box that asked me if i wanted to open it or save it, and there was a box that said "don't ask me this again. I accidentally checked that box. Now every time I click on a file it asks me where I want to save it but it won't let me open it to view it first. How do get it back to the way it was?

I have tried changing my download options, I've tried re-setting the browser options. Nothing works. There has to be a way to get back to where is asks "where would you like to save" AND gives me the option to click a radial button to Open the file and view it before saving it.

I created a secondary email in my Firefox account and then generated a recovery key. Then I decided to use a different email as my secondary. After that I tried to update the recovery key (assuming the first key is linked to the first submitted secondary email) but FF said there was already a recovery key established. So, if I ever need to enact the recovery key, will firefox accept the initial key from the latter secondary email?
