It use to work that by pressing Ctrl I could select with mouse left button different links in search results but now it is selecting all previous links as well and I cannot have a control over the selections. I want only some of the links in google not all. Are you able to help me?

I found out, that the getUserMedia Promise in Firefox only resolves, if the Tab is active or by clicking on the Tab Instance: (Firefox, 81.0)

navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia({ audio: true}).then(() => console.log("done"))

Otherwise, the Promise never resolves or rejects. Is this a bug or a feature, and where is this documented? Is there a media Config setting, to tell Firefox to allow getUserMedia Promise to resolve in non-active Tabs? Otherwise this looks like a bug for me...

This happens when along with the search result google website deploys what it calls "Knowledge panel's". These are boxes of information related to what was asked in the search box, and appear not all the time but at certain (more common/famous) topics and persons. when that happens, despite the fact that I have the browser at full screen open, the wide screen monitor appears too small to the google website, which is unusual.

This manifests itself in the form of a horizontal bar at the bottom of Firefox browser's tab that I'm supposed to slide in order to see the edges on the right side. This never happened in dozens of years of use of this browser. It started happening in recent weeks. I initially thought it would go away but it hasn't. Even tho by now I have gone out of my way to open a new profile. This problem persists even when I have all addons disabled. Concurrently when I open other browsers google.com shows no horizontal bars.

I am aware that this problem can be mitigated if I reduce the Firfox's zoom down to 90%. However I don't consider this a solution on a small laptop (1366 X 676).

I have researched this site and elsewhere, and tried everything I can. Is there a way, in firefox 81.0.2 (latest as of this post according to mozilla) to remove amazon and google from the "top sites" suggestions. For every other website, firefox lets you remove them from the list easily, but not with amazon or google. Ive removed it, deleted all history, clicked the dismiss button, the remove button, nothing, its still there. To prove that its an advertisement by firefox, even when I tried editing the link, firefox simply re-added the original one for me (how convenient!). Ive been with firefox almost 2 decades now, but if they are going to force advertising like this than obviously I need to look into other options.

I just changed my browser because the version I had before wasn't compatible with a site I needed to use for school. On this version instead of using the cursor designs that are used everywhere else, it uses it's own versions and I can't find a way to change this. When I go to click on a link it turns into this really ugly version of the hand cursor instead of the normal one. I know this doesn't seem important but it's actually triggering panic attacks for me. Please help! I'm using linux mint.

Firefox sync has not been working for me for some time, and I'd like to get it operational again. I'm trying to sync between a Mac Pro (FF 81.0.2), a MacBook Pro (FF 81.0.2) and an iPhone 6 (FF Daylight 29.0). Nothing whatsover syncs.

So far, I've updated all browsers, and re-paired the iPhone with the QR code. I've also logged out of my FF accounts at the same time on all devices, and back in again. (That's what's recommended at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-sync-troubleshooting-and-tips#w_i-set-up-firefox-sync-but-nothing-is-syncing, though that links to a page that is said to be out of date).

I can't see any obvious errors in the computer names, or anything else.

Any suggestion for further investigation, please?

For example, this page mostly displays: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canada_lynx But items like the latin name does not (attached pic). Switching off the italics on the latin name causes it to display correctly.

Bolding text doesn't cause any issues.

My problem seems similar to this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/774797

However I can see Helvetica fonts just fine. I can cause the error when I switch it to italics. data:text/html,Helvetica Neue
''abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ


Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks!

Hi there,

So I manage 2 x FB accounts, mine & Mum's (only cos she's not too savvy). My FB loads fine, apps work, games, vids etc. Mum's on the other hand only has a blank screen when I log in. Nothing on her news feed. She can access the apps/games via links to her email address, and once you've opened one app via an email link you can pretty much access the other apps/games, but not go to their actual page (for bonus points etc), This was working perfectly until this morning.

Hate to say this, but it works in Chrome

Hello everyone,

Since a few days I have a problem with the layout Firefox gives me displaying “youtube.com”. The layout and a lot of functions (like play, full screen etc.) have changed or disappeared. The changes don’t apply in Firefox’s private Mode (and neither in Google Chrome nor on Firefox of my girlfriend’s laptop). I deactivated every single Addon and searched on google - unfortunately, I could not find any solution. Does somebody have an idea?

I have added two pictures where you can see the comparison between normal and private mode.

I have the latest version for Firefox and Adobe Shockwave Flash.

Thanks a lot in advance and enjoy your day, Simon
