Currently, I have configured my Privacy & Security settings in which all third-party cookies are blocked. This causes certain websites to break and become nonfunctional.

How do I configure my settings to which all third-party cookies are blocked by default, but for specific websites I choose they are not blocked?

I do not want to change my settings in which cookies are blocked only from websites I have not visited; because there are some websites I frequent that I still wish to block third-party cookies.

Thank you

Is there an easier way to view two tabs on the screen at the same time - "split screen" fashion? One can open one tab in a second window and adjust to have one window on the top half of the display and the other on the bottom. But this is a awkward.

See screenshot of this. It shows downtown Minneapolis in Google maps at two different scales. (Note that the I35W crossing of the Mississippi in the upper right corner is the one that collapsed in 2011).

One can switch back and forth between two tabs (maybe after moving the two tabs to be adjacent). But this is still suboptimal.

I use splitscreen in my text editor all the time (vertically or horizontally) and find it very useful. I wish there were an easy way to switch to/from split screen in Firefox.

BTW I searched the Firefox "Find help..." for: "split screen" tabs and got 1640 hits! I looked at the first 10 pages and saw nothing relevant.

It displays strange characters on pages including Yahoo mail. The attached screen shot shows a bank email, but it happens with other non-secure stuff too like general web pages. This has been happening with version 81.0 and the previous version. If I open the same page in Chrome, it will display the characters normally. I did see the strange characters appear in Chrome one time, but it happens in FF quite frequently.

Move Tab: Ctrl+Shift+ PgUp/PgDn No Longer Works After Firefox Update

Hi. I'm currently using Firefox 86.0 in Linux (Ubuntu 20.04 64-bit) and for aeons I've been using Ctrl+Shift+ PgUp/PgDn to move tabs left and right, but a couple of updates ago I lost the ability to do so. Actually, I should say using the LEFT Ctrl and Shift buttons no longer works, as I ended up trying the right ones and I can still re-order tabs that way. However, I'm just so used to having my left hand working on that side of the keyboard, I always automatically press the left Ctrl+Shift, so I'd really like to get back to how things were until very recently. I was hoping doing another update to 86.0 yesterday would fix it, but it hasn't so here I am.

I've searched all over the web for a remedy, but all I see is people repeating the key combo, people recommending extensions that no longer exist (and I don't really want to install addons for something that used to be the default). I have not installed any addons for ages, have not tinkered with any settings (I can't even find any for key bindings) - all I did was let my system update Firefox, and that key combo was gone. (Note: since my system and apps get updated together, I can't actually be certain with was updating Firefox that did this, but I see no changed keyboard behavior elsewhere).

If anyone knows how to fix this, like a key in about:config or whatever, please let me know. PS: While searching the web, I've seen a lot of talk about related (Ctrl+Shift) combos I've never used - like Ctrl+Shift+ End to move the tab to the very end - and none of them work; the only Ctrl+Shift combo that works, and only with the right Ctrl+Shift, is Ctrl+Shift+ PgUp/PgDn for moving tabs left and right. I thought I should add that just in case it's related.

I use an app that enables me to scan an expense to pdf, then opens the pdf file so I can see the details to enter the amount, supplier, expense type, date into the bookkeeping system to create the bookkeeping entry and attach the pdf to it. I use Firefox as my default browser (version 83.0). However, I cannot see the PDF data anymore - it is totally blank, so I cannot use the functionality. I have queried this with the bookkeeping support who say this is a browser issue. If I use another browser e.g. Opera the functionality works fine. Can anyone suggest whether this is a Firefox settings issue or suggest a fix? TIA

Dear Mozilla Community,

I would like to know when Firefox will be dropping Windows 7 support? I readed on some websites that Google Chrome will be dropped support for Windows 7 in 15 January 2022 year so I would like to know if there are any plans by Mozilla Developers to drop support for Windows 7?

I don't have computers with Windows 7 but my friends asked me about this because they know that I am active community member of Mozilla but I can't answer because I don't know so this is why I asked you today about this.

Yours faithfully, Piotr

Yesterday I shutdown my PC running Ubuntu 18.04 while Firefox had a full screen window on each of my two monitors. When i turned it on today the window on my right hand monitor opened correctly. However, the window on my left hand monitor had these problems (see the uploaded image) it was not full screen. It was split into a window at the bottom of the screen that showed the expected contents and a black window at the top of the screen that took mouse input. Note the 'KCOM webmail...' popup by the mouse cursor over the upper window. A right click on the desktop had no effect on the left hand monitor, as if something considered the window full screen. After restoring down the window on the right hand monitor a right click on that desktop showed the expected menu. I recovered from the problem by moving the mouse cursor over the black window until the 'Maximise' popup appeared and clicking. The window then became full screen and has behaved correctly since. I have xpdyinfo and xwininfo outputs in case they are useful. I upgraded from Ubuntu 16.04 to 18.04 about 2 weeks ago and have been using Firefox almost daily since then. I have often seen it restart correctly when I restart my PC, although perhaps not with two full screen windows. I don't know if this is a known bug. I hope this information is useful.

How can I enable the microphone? The second method does not work for me

Firefox-Version: 74.0 (64-Bit) Operating system: Xubuntu 18.04

I want to participate in meetings with Teamviewer or in https://meet.jit.si. I want to enable my mike in the browser for that purpose.

I read the hint

https://support.mozilla.org/en…ng-microphone-permissions

but that does not work for me: After entering the URL into the dialogue,e.g.. https://meet.jit.si I am supposed to press ENTER. But then nothing happens!

I expect the entered URL to be added to the list below after pressing ENTER (this list was empty before in my case).

When I want to participate in such a meeting, I get a question whether I would allow the microphone to be used. Even if I allow it, meet.jit.si tells me that it could not use the microphone for an unspecified reason.

In the browser when trying to use such a connection, to the left of the URL there is a closed lock symbol and a red microphone symbol.

I have checked if the microphone works: I can record something with it using Audacity and if I activate the Pulseaudio-volume control I see a level indicator which reacts on sound heard by my microphone.

What must I do to enable the microphone for TeamViewer or other net meetings?

Hello, i have at this moment TWO versions off ff in use. my standard install wont open any file on the LOCAL drive AND severall BUTTONS are not working so now i use the 'standalone' version that just opdated to 87, nice but the OLD version 78ers is now broken or hacked

i tried to look up profile.js etc but perhaps on debian those migth have a different name ? i noticed that with other progs and configs aswell. is it the permisions.ini file ?

the general.config.obscure_value is NOW 0, but WAS 13

i hope there is a simple solution. if i continue with 87 and delete 78 , what will happen? after RE-install off 87esr al still is blocked. C

Hello, we develop an angular application. One of our users couldn't login any more. He uses Firefox 84.0.2 (64-Bit) under Mac. He get's the error `ERROR DOMException: The quota has been exceeded` in Console. Reloading Page even with COMMAND+R didn't work. We deleted the cashed files under settings, as displayed in https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/gallery/images/2018-04-29-04-08-27-fabea4.png (with both checkboxes). It only worked when we deleted the file webappstorage.sqlite in profile folder. Is that a bug?

Thanks in advance.

When, I try to connect the wifi, wifi will connected after few hour automatically. It show the following error:

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at mnit.ac.in. If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

Try again later.
 Check your network connection.
 If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

Please give your valuable suggestion.
