Its 2020 man!

Why are we (Mozilla community) still missing content casting feature just like Google Chrome and other browsers. Even the new Microsoft Edge Chromium have that feature. I usually stream a lot of content and this feature, for me, is indispensable.

Furthermore, I am not asking for any workaround or extensions. There should be a native casting feature on Mozilla Firefox too just like other browsers.

Regards, VIVEK

I want to erase or preferably disable the "Recently Bookmarked" functionality when you go to the bookmarks part of the library. How do I do this? I don't see anything in the Support, despite doing searches using several different search terms. It is a strange thing to have without being able to erase it or disable it, especially since bookmarks saved during "private window" searches show up there.

Hi, I updated Mozilla Firefox to version 81.0 (64 bit) three days ago. I noticed that the functionality of search in the page (Ctrl+F) doesn't work properly. For example, I try to search a word, using the search bar, and the browser doesn't find anything. Mozilla doesn't highlight anything. Why? However, after I close the browser and open it again, the function of search works. I refreshed Mozilla twice and reinstalled, but the problem persists. Can you help me? Thanks.

FF is nagging me to no end to upgrade, from 82.0.3 to whatever. I would prefer to just get rid of the nags if that is possible.

Short of that, the upgrades are NEVER as advertised and always blow up things that are never covered in the upgrade release notes. I get the impression these upgrades are poorly tested. The last site-specific video AutoPlay problem I had took two months to fix -- no thanks to FF support. But I got it fixed. That involved Engineer Buddys at Intel and the source code.

Here I'll ask the same old question and no doubt get the same canned response -- Are there any unexpected blow-ups I need to know about NOT covered in the release notes ? Of course the answer will be No, because the volunteers are not privy to the thinking and failures of the developers.

Let me be clear about this: When/if I upgrade (because the changes wrought in my modified browser will be blown out and I'll need to co-opt more help with that) is there anything extant that will not work ? Anything at all -- especially with respect to video AutoPlay features ?

Upgrade agony got way too old a long, long time ago with respect to settings I had tweaked and got blown out...

Can anyone help with this ?

Preferred solution: Shutdown the upgrade nags.

Based on my friend's statement to me that HE WAS ABLE TO EASILY DOWNLOAD ANYBODY'S YOUTUBE VIDEO VIA HIS FIREFOX BROWSER I put Firefox on my desktop PC specifically so that I could download my own youtube videos via my youtube channel's DOWNLOAD BUTTON that had suddenly (after working fine for several months) stopped working for me on Chrome. *This download button had been for weeks working perfectly fine in my brand new FIREFOX browser but has just now suddenly stopped working: Is this a problem with FIREFOX or is youtube preventing me (by blocking my IP address or something) from downloading to my PC MY OWN VIDEOS?

Suddenly I am unable to log into Facebook. I have made no changes to my computer or to Firefox. When I try to go to Facebook the credentials box comes up, then before I can type in my credentials another small window appears with the title bar "Not Logged In" and Please Log in to Continue, and two little buttons at the bottom Cancel or Log In. I am unable to input my credentials at all; the little window keeps coming up. I am able to successfully log into Facebook using Microsoft Edge browser.

I am running Windows 7.

Hi all,

Last weekend Firefox updated to 82.02 automatically and the font is now very Chrome-like in that it is grey and grainy which causes me massive eye strain.

I switched from Chrome to Firefox because of the bolder, blacker fonts. Now I'm probably stuck in version 81 for the rest of time which is not a long term solution. Is there a way to use version 81 font rendering in updated versions of Firefox.

Thanks,

Jayule

I want to have a unified bookmark experience over two different user accounts on my desktop computer (one is my 'ordinary' account, the other is the Administrator' account. Importing bookmarks is a one-time event, and entropy takes over immediately afterwards. It occurs to me that using a Shortcut, to point to a single file, may be a solution. The idea being that any change to the single file will automatically perpetuate itself to both accounts.

My question - is this reasonable, or is there an even niftier way of doing this (a sort of "Blend the properties for these two accounts" type of setting).

Thanks,

Tony
