Good day,

Really happy to see that mozilla is tightening up security. But unfortunately, I can't enroll into Two-Step Authentication everytime I enter code it's not being accepted. I tried multiple android apps of those codes and non of them work for me.

Because of that, I lost access to addons.mozilla.com account, because system doesn't let me in without 2step auth enabled.

Any chance I can use yubikey's intead of those auth apps? or anything else I can do?

Hi, I'd like to disable that annoying animation when going to fullscreen (by hitting F11). Supposedly, setting the following should work:

Go to about:config

Set: full-screen-api.transition-duration.enter 0 0 full-screen-api.transition-duration.leave 0 0 full-screen-api.transition.timeout 0 full-screen-api.warning.delay 0 full-screen-api.warning.timeout 0

Restart

However, this does not have any effect in Firefox 94.0 on Ubuntu. Is this a bug/regression? Or is there some other way to disable the animation?

Hi

I don't know what's happened to cause this, but for the last few days if I grab a torrent file online, I only get the option to save the file, no option to automatically open in my torrent client.

I have been to Firefox general settings, and Applications - "Choose how Firefox handles the files you download from the web or the applications you use while browsing" but .torrent is not listed. When I search "torrent" in the Applications search box, I get only "magnet" as a result, nothing for "torrent" files (see image).

Any advice on how to automatically open .torrent files from the web in my torrent client would be appreciated.

Date: 10 May 2022 AusEST

Firefox 100.0 (64-bit) Mac desktop: Apple Silicon Mac mini (M1, 2020) - macOS Monterey v12.3.1 (problem occurred prior years using Intel/iMac 2015; and previous macOS) Extensions: DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials; HTTPS Everywhere; NoScript Plugins: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems,Inc. Location: Australia EST


I am wondering if the following is a known problem. If so, I haven’t been able to find the solution online.

I keep copies of home rental online payments as proof of payment should there be a discrepancy with the real estate agency.

This problem can also apply in other situations, for example payment of online purchases, or movement of large amounts of money to varying institutions.

Sometimes the bank payment is delayed and I would like to ensure that not only the date of payment is accurate but also that the time of payment is relatively close. I am finding that the file printed when banking via Firefox is not time dated relatively close to the time of payment. I use Firefox solely for banking as a secure method.

Upon payment I am presented with a bank receipt and an option to print it, all within Firefox’s desktop application. After pressing the PRINT button I choose to print as PDF and save to the computer. The resulting file is what I am referring to.

The pdf receipt is shown with default details at the top and bottom of the page, the bottom being where the date and time of pdf printing occurred. The discrepancy is between that time shown and the actual time of payment. The difference can be sometimes up to 12 hours!

Can someone please assist me to rectify the situation?

Kind regards, Harauld

Today I tried to place an online order to pickup from Texas Roadhouse, but no matter what time I chose a message said it was not available. The only selection that worked was "Earliest Available Time". Finally I called to place an order. Firefox worked 2 months ago but I don't recall which version I was using at the time.

Today I was using FF vers 97.x and later updated to vers 99.0.1 figuring that might be the problem, but it made no difference.

Later I tried Windows 10 Edge & that worked. Then tried a Chromebook & that also worked.

I've also had problems going to the Tracfone website & so have several other people. It's hit or miss with Firefox & usually it doesn't work. But Chrome or Edge seem to work for everyone.

Is this a website problem or a FF problem?

Hi,

In the parameters, I chose to let Firefox ask me every time what to do with PDF files. But, when the window pop up and I click "Open with ... Firefox", the browser download and open with Firefox the PDF instead of only showing it in Firefox. When I set the "Open with firefox" by default in the parameters, Firefox will this time directly open the PDF in the browser instead of downloading it.

Are you aware of this bug ? Is there a solution ?

Thank you very much !

We got an alert when opening Firefox on our iMac yesterday suggesting we "refresh" and that bookmarks and saved passwords would not be affected. After the refresh, bookmarks were retained but all passwords wiped out. Further, as we painstakingly looked up or created new passwords on sites and entered them, the usual Firefox alert would come up asking if we wanted to save the new log-in, user name and password on each site, we'd select "yes" and then find none of them saved. Can anyone advise us? We're rebuilding our saved passwords on Chrome now but have had Firefox as out primary browser for over a decade.

Greetings... I would like to increase the font size in right click menu box in FF 89.0 (64-bit) (see attached png)

I found a similar 2018 query here at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1241117#answer-1174375

and based on that exchange I added the following to userChrome.css file

/* FONT SIZE IN RIGHT CLICK MENU BOXES 5/1/22 */

  1. mainPopupSet menuitem,
  2. mainPopupSet menu { font-size: 16pt !important; }

/* */

I closed and reopened FF. This change has no effect on the menu font no matter what font-size value I enter. Have I done something wrong?
