Hello good people, This is rather a request for advice than an issue report. I' ve learned about the facebook container add-on and wanted to know if there is a need for it if someone was making sure to exclusively open facebook.com in its own profile. Say you set up a profile(from about:profiles) namely "BIg Brothers" for notorious trackers like google, facebook , twitter etc so they can perpetually track each other with simple rules to observe like : - Never open an external(shared) link - Never access any other website through that profile.

Is there a particular feature the add-on is bringing up that the native interface is missing ? The other reason is add-ons are great but they tend to bloat the system impeding the browsing experience. I am the kind of guy who opens 7 concurrent tabs each running heavy js code so the lighter the better.

Thank you in advance,

Dom

In the past I was able to set the setting ``` browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll browser.urlbar.doubleClickSelectsAll ``` to disable that a single click into the address bar selects the whole url. Is it possible to achieve this with the new QuantumBar somehow?

Hi,

If a website is dual-stacked, Firefox will first try to connect over IPv6 and fallback to IPv4 if it fails. However, Firefox never tries again to use IPv6 if it as fails once. Sometimes this leads to connection error if the connection is intermittent (so IPv6 will fails at the time of the request, but it’s not specific to IPv6, and Firefox will try over IPv4) and if IPv4 is broken at all (e.g. because IPv6 works so nobody notices it). So when the connection comes back, Firefox will be stuck to IPv4 and the site won’t display even if works with IPv6. Even Ctrl-Shift-R doesn’t clear the connection cache.

Firefox 76.0 64 Bit for Linux Mint 1.0 Mint 19 Cinnamon3.8.9

How can I prevent a single tab from closing?

I would like to prevent the keystroke Ctrl W from closing the active tab.

My understanding is that it is impossible to change keybindings in Firefox.

I thought an alternative might be to set Firefox to warn before closing a tab.

I had no luck in finding such an option.

Is there such an option?

If not, any other ideas?

Hi,

I use a 3x8 grid of top sites as my home page / new tab page. However, I usually split windows to half of the screen size, and when doing that the grid becomes 3x6 and some sites simply disappear!

Why not simply reshape the grid by adding extra rows? It would seem the most logical design choice, but I cannot find any setting or extension to do it.

Also, I feel like the tiles should be resizable since they look a bit small in high-resolution screens, but that's a different topic.

I don't know if this is the right place to post this, if it is not then please tell me where I should do it.

Hi,

Since months I'm struggling with this issue but today I became unable to bear any more.

Many websites works fine with Chrome while don't with Firefox because of iframe issue. As shown in this link you can read the story fine under Chrome while sucks with Firefox so I wonder:

How can I bypass this issue? Is there some kind of CSS manipulation for run this kind of content fine (I run some websites locally so Firefox always sucks with iframe)?

Hi everyone! Since my update of Firefox (Ver. 76.0) on May 6, my Netflix streaming doesn't work any more. I use the Firefox Browser Ver. 76 on elementary Linux (Ubuntu 18.04). Until May 5 everything worked fine. I changed my browser to "Chrome" now, for watching Netflix. With Chrome everything works fine. Maybe someone can tell me, why Firefox 76 refuses streaming netflix.

Thanks for a helpful answer. C. Wolfgang
