Hallo, ich bin Kunde der Telekom und nutze das Telekom email Center zum Schreiben von Mails. Dafür muss ich immer umständlich die Adresse z.b. eines Shops ins email center übertragen um zu schreiben. Alternativ öffnet ein Klick auf die Adresse ein Auswahlfenster, mit welcher App ich eine Mail schreiben möchte. Da ich weder Mail noch sonst eine App nutzen möchte, suche ich nach einer anderen Möglichkeit. Kann man Firefox so einstellen, dass bei einem Klick auf die Mail-Adresse direkt dasTelekom email center gestartet wird? Vielen Dank!

After 89.0.1 update on Windows, Firefox will not release the audio device, not allowing the computer to sleep.

Since the 89.0.1 update on Windows 10 21H1 (Build 19043.1055), Firefox will not let my PC sleep, unless I quit and re-open Firefox. There is no audio playing on any tabs, but after a while of using Firefox on YouTube or whatnot, it will not release the audio device to let Windows put my monitors to sleep even though all playback has ended.

This can clearly be seen by running "powercfg /requests" as an administrator.

With videos playing, as expected Firefox reserves the audio device, as well as an Execution request.

Output: [ PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> powercfg /requests DISPLAY: [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume6\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe display request

SYSTEM: [DRIVER] High Definition Audio Device (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0900&SUBSYS_10438581&REV_1000\4&2d156fef&0&0001) An audio stream is currently in use.

AWAYMODE: None.

EXECUTION: [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume6\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe non-display request

PERFBOOST: None.

ACTIVELOCKSCREEN: None. ]

But after you stop playing the video the output becomes: [ PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> powercfg /requests DISPLAY: [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume6\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe display request

SYSTEM: [DRIVER] High Definition Audio Device (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0900&SUBSYS_10438581&REV_1000\4&2d156fef&0&0001) An audio stream is currently in use.

AWAYMODE: None.

EXECUTION: None.

PERFBOOST: None.

ACTIVELOCKSCREEN: None. ]

You can see the audio device doesn't get released, and the only resolution is to quit and restart Firefox.

This doesn't always happen, but does happen after a while.

I am trying to include some PDFs in iframe tags on my website. Previously they appeared as normal, embedded within the page. But now whenever the page is loaded firefox prompts the user with the "What should firefox do with this file?" window or whatever the default action for the PDF file type is. It does not display the content on the page and the iframe is just blank. The iframes still work on chrome so it does not appear to be an issue with my code.

I know that the autofill for credit cards is only available in the US and Canada (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/credit-card-autofill#w_edit-your-saved-credit-cards). I live in the US. The feature was working just fine... until I traveled overseas and used my laptop there and changed time zones to where I was visiting. Now that I'm back in the US, the feature is missing. In the settings, I don't see a "Forms and Autofill" section in the settings. I checked system locale and it's properly set to us-en. All the settings are properly set in about:config. I've tried everything I found by searching online and nothing helped. I even tried creating a separate profile in Firefox to see if the section shows up under setting with no luck.

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi I run a program called nodered on a raspberry pi in docker. I use a browser to reach the user interface via lan. If that tab sits in the background too long (~5 min) the connection with the server resets and resets the gui.

I lose all current debugging information and any unsaved changes. Saving the page will stop the lost progress but not the current debugging. In other words just saving the page each time will only solve 1/2 of the problem.

Is there anyway to keep a background page active so it doesn't reset after a few minutes?

I'm running Windows 10 and have experienced multiple, repeated stopcode violations resulting in the blue screen and reboot (or sometimes requiring hard shutdown and reboot). I've kept close records of programs and peripherals, and the only constant I can find is Firefox. Typically I see it with I'm exploring something in Firefox (ironically it just occurred while typing this). I've taken the computer to the shop a couple of times, and they've stressed it over multiple days and can't duplicate it. I wonder about the interaction of internet fluctuations and Firefox. I'm wondering if my motherboard is failing, though it's fairly new. Any help I can get on this would be very welcome! Thank you!

Hi all,

Little issue with Firefox that isn't a glitch, but it's something that annoys me and I am curious if I can fix it!

I have two monitors....a 22" monitor and a 7" mini-monitor. The large monitor is my main for everything and I use the little one for chat windows and watching Youtube as I work, etc.

I usually have a chat window from a certain website open on my mini monitor and all my other tabs open on my main monitor in Firefox, but I've noticed that if I click a link in Discord, or in an email in Thunderbird, etc, the link opens in the window on my second mini monitor and I then have to move it to my main monitor....is there any way to make a open window the 'default' window in Firefox so that clicking a link would open that link in a tab on my main monitor instead...?

Thanks!

I read this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1092509

And i switch "browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon" to "false" and restart the browser. But I am still able to turn off the sound by clicking the icon on the tab. The config option is still set to "false".

What is the proper way to disable mute icon on tabs?

Hello dear supports. As the title says; For example I have 4 tabs open and when I switch to one of them, Firefox automatically reloads it and that causes problem specially when I'm offline. I'd like to reload the tabs myself, every time I want.

Is there any way to stop Firefox from auto reloading tabs?

The "browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory" parameter was already set on false when I checked. These solutions didn't work for me. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1259963 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1260025 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1260121

I have my Firefox settings to open search results links in a new tab. I can get this to happen with Google, but I *rarely* use it. I prefer Bing. My settings are for links to open in a new tab, and they won't do that with Bing.

I have read what others have suggested about fixing this problem. I made changes in about:config with no result. I opened in Firefox safe mode and didn't find anything on my own. Will check out any tips though.

This has only recently become an issue. I know that Ads have always opened in the same tab and I do not care to right-click or use ctrl.

Another issue I suddenly had with the latest new design update was that when I used the Bing search box, it started switching to an address bar search. I was able to fix that.

Anyone know a sure cure?

An attached keyboard works fine and the on-screen keayboard works also fine in other browsers.

As Firefox is my favorite ! browser, I would appreciate help on this topic.

Some research showed this is a problem that has been reported for years now. Is there any solution yet?

Hello, this is about the library.

There is a bug that appeared more or less a week ago.

First the library had adopted a fixed predefined size. The next day, apparently a first bug was repaired, since we could change the size again.

But there is still a bug. When you "decrease" this predefined size, if you click in the left part no problem, but if you click in the right part, the library takes back directly the predefined size! In other words, the library is no longer configurable, it will always take this predefined size.

Can you please solve this problem?

To give an example of use, using constantly the favorites, I took the habit to leave the window open on the side of my first screen, in the smallest size possible for my use. And I open firefox on the second screen. Here when the window resumes its predefined size, it overflows half on my second screen, passing over firefox. This size is too big, it takes more than 30% of my first screen. Forcing me to move it over my applications ...

I thank you in advance.

Here's the problem: when I try to play a Youtube or other video in Firefox, the sound cuts out after 1 second. Then silence.

I have tried everything. I updated drivers. I tried fixing sound in the sound settings. Nothing works.

This seems only to be a problem with the HDMI output, as it seems fine when I use Bluetooth. However, it is only a problem with Firefox, because it works fine in Chrome and Edge.

So I've noticed recently that Firefox, or rather more specifically, Noscript, seems to think a lot of things are XSS attempts, which had never been the case before, leading me to think these are false positives. I've had no luck in undoing anything that was blocked, as mentioned in another thread. I'm trying to figure out if resetting Firefox would be a good idea. My problem is that one of my extensions is directly tied to my antivirus program, so my question is basically this; would the extension be able to be turned back on as is, or would I have to reinstall the antivirus program to get it back? I've never seen it come up in a basic search for add-ons without it. So it sounds like I'd have to reinstall it. Can anyone confirm this? If so, I'll have to wait a day or two to get this reset done.

Alternatively, I'm debating just deleting the current cookies and the like from the browser. Would this be a better alternative to a full on refresh/reset of Firefox?
