Option to use Gmail for mailto: links has suddenly vanished from Settings

Just now, I tried to use "Email Link..." under the File Menu and got a pop-up asking me to "Choose an application to open the mailto link." I have seen this before, several times, and usually fix it by going to Tools > Settings, under General > Applications, select "mailto" under Content Type, then select Gmail from the drop-down menu.

This time, however, Gmail is not presented as an option, in this pop-up. Clicking "Choose..." just opens up a Windows Explorer file-picker window.

I tried to fix this in Tools > Settings, under General > Applications. There, "mailto" just shows "Use other..." and if I click that, the "Select Helper Application" pop-up window is basically blank, with a message at the bottom saying "No applications were found for this file type."

I refreshed Firefox but it did not solve the problem.

I have tried to attached images but they will not upload.

I am running v100.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 11

I am a long-time user and fan of Firefox (which will remain my browser of choice). For that reason it seems, I keep getting prompted to pin Firefox to the Taskbar.

I don't want to do that, as I keep my taskbar small and uncluttered (nothing is pinned there). Hence I'd like to turn off being asked. However, when I get the above message I have only 2 options: Yes or Not Now. And it seems 'Not now' means "not now, but of course feel free to keep asking".

Is there any way I can turn of this pop up permanently?

Like the title says the 3 finger gesture to move between full screen images doesn't work with firefox 100.0 Macbook pro 16" 2019 running catalina 10.15.7. What happens is that full screen is exited and browser moves back to the previous page.

Only had this problem after updating firefox.

I've seen conversations from as far back as 10 years ago where people have had this problem but their fixes don't work.

This should work without an add on plug in or app. It should simply work.

Done all the usual things restarted finder, restarted computer, checked all the setting in computer preferences. Tried other browsers and it works with both google and safari.

I switched to firefox and spent a lot of time organizing and setting up only to have this problem. This is a feature I use often (every day) so it is a deal breaker even with all the time I've invested in switching.

Does anyone have an answer for me? How do I get the 3 finger gesture back on my MacBook?

I've tried removing MS Edge but it won't let me. Is there a fix for this problem? How do I remove MS Edge? Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank You. Dale P.

To use this, I just click it in whatever folder it's in and it comes up in Firefox. If I run this on either Linux or Mac, when I click "Nucleotide" it takes me to the URL. If I do this on Windows 11, my URL looks like the following:

file:///C:/Users/xxxxx/Documents/www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nuccore

What do I need to do on Windows to get the real URL to execute?

Thanks, Joe

Happens on a number of websites when I press buttons, like Youtube logo for example, blue box surrounds the logo. Other cases when i adjust the volume button on a youtube video, the button is remembered and whenever I press spacebar with the intention of pausing the video, the video gets muted instead because the volume button is highlighted and remembered.

I am using Firefox version 100.0.1 (64-bit) and whenever I try to search in the search bar it will not provide me with any search results. I stays on the same page it was on before I hit enter and the address for that website reappears. If I click on the drop down menu and select a website, it will take me to that website, unless the website is Google.
