Open Firefox Home in specific Multi-Account Container

Hi! I am trying to use the Multi-Account Containers add-on in conjunction with Facebook Container and Temporary Containers add-ons.

I have DuckDuckGo set as my default search engine, and Homepage and New Tabs and Windows set to Firefox Home.

Firefox Home has no domain in the address bar, which is presumably why it is always opened in a temporary container.

I am not sure I understand the best practice to use them after reading a LOT on various sites. Aside from the default containers, I have set up specific containers, depicted in the attached image, for: -Privacy Expected (Firefox, DDG, etc). -Often used and generally trusted (labelled Suppliers, Sites I like). -General sites which I expect to visit again, and I've managed cookie settings I don't want to do again each visit due to Temporary Containers add-on deleting their cookies. -Yuk Sites I expect to track me can go in a container (again, only adding to a container so I don't have to manage their cookies each visit). -worst offenders have their own containers (Google, Microsoft, etc)

Still trying to get my head around how to set permission for add-on Read Aloud to use Google Wavenet voices, and have that permission (and "I am not a robot" Captcha) seen across non-Google pages I want to be able to be read aloud (maybe have to add that 1 page for Google Wavenet voices to an exception in Temp containers or no cointainer but at the extent of my ability to make sense of all this).

I am sat in front of a PC for most of my day. Firefox spends most of its time minimised while I use document and video applications. On average the Primary password login box will activate over everything I am doing frequently - by frequently I mean 2-3 times an hour or more. It is annoying and nonsensical. What am I doing wrong or is this simply a flaw in firefox? In my imagination at least it makes sense for it to ask me for a password when I want to use a password restricted domain.

Hi,

Is there a way to change the title for when an open file button is clicked in the browser?In Firefox a window pops up with the title "File Upload" but if I have two browsers open both titles are the same and I am having a hard time uniquely identifying them (Trying to automate some tasks using autoit).

I know its a windows pop up but in chrome the title is "Open" which makes me think that this title is being controlled by the browser?

Help much appreciated

I had Firefox 89 when this morning I could not watch my Amazon videos because I kept getting a message saying that I needed to upgrade my Chrome browser. Since I never use Chrome, I decided to check if Firefox was at the latest version. When I clicked into options, I saw a notice saying that Firefox is not my default browser. I thought that somehow something had messed up my settings since I made Firefox my default browser when I first bought this computer over a yea ago, so I clicked the button to set it as default. That took me to Windows settings which showed that Firefox was already my default browser.

Since then I have restarted the computer multiple times; upgraded to Firefox 90 and restarted; deleted Chrome; reset Firefox; gone to Windows settings and changed my default browser to Edge. then later reset it back to Firefox.

The Firefox options STILL indicate that Firefox is not my default browser.

What is going on? Does anyone have any ideas?

I first noticed this after I could not play my Amazon videos this morning -- which I can play now after having reset Firefox -- but I am worried that this will affect other things.

when embedding a bigger video in firefox i got audio bugs. It crackles like an old movie. No problems in Chrome.

The video was converted with VLC to MP4/MOV with H-264 video and MPEG audio codecs. Because of its a very high quality video, the file size and Bitrates are very high. Is it possible, that firefox has a problem with that?

I know, usually you should never offering a video with that size on a web template, but its local hosted for an kiosk-mode project.

Example File:

FILE Name: Holliday_Hawaii_2019.mp4 Type: MP4 File Size: 5.39 GB (5.78.399.926 Bytes)

VIDEO Resolution: 1920 x 1080 px Data rate: 8082 kBit/s Total bitrate: 8721 kBit/s Frame rate: 23.98 Pictures/Second

AUDIO Bit rate: 638 kBit/s Channels: 2 Audio sampl: 44.100 kHze rate

Since a couple of weeks my Firefox browser for Windows 10 64bit has issues. Last update 90.0.2 did not work either,and the issues is still there.

Internet is extremly slow,some sites will not open and i cant logg in to Facebook.

Under settings,i have tried different settings. Right now i have the standard setting. Under Help,i have tried to restore,diagnos and clean catch and restart,but it has not solved the issue.

What could be causing these issues? Do i have to do some special settings or do i have to add some Add-ons/Extensions in order to have Firefox work normal again?

I have had a primary/master password set in Firefox for years. It only prompted me to enter it once per session. Since version 90, it now pops up at least once a day at random times to ask for the password again. This has happened on 3 different devices where Firefox is installed.

How can I stop it doing that or at least extend the time to a week? I know there are hidden config options for these, but they look to be on the default values, so have never changed.

I wrote a message in GAB chat but just as I sent it I lost internet . The message is gone but not delivered. I searched online how to recover and followed instructions to do this. type or paste about:cache in the address bar and press Enter. Under disk click the link to List cache entries. This may take a long time.

Eventually you should see a list that lets you find the URL you're trying to decode. If you click it, Firefox should show the content there and list the compression type, which most often will be:

Content-Encoding: gzip

In that case, if you save the encoded content to a new file with a .gz extension you should be able to decompress it using your favorites ZIP utility. Of course, finding the beginning and end of the content may not be intuitive. I don't know whether the cache entry info page is helpful or not.

    The problem is I have no idea which item in the vast list is on GAB because they all say google and Firefox thanks for any advice and please tell Firefox we are extremely disappointed that they teamed up with commie Google we can no longer download you tube videos unless we go through chrome and the downloader they offer uses 3 time as much data in the same format as the down loaders we were able to use

I'm using Windows Defender Firewall in Windows 10, and I have blocked all Inbound and Outbound connections, created a New Rule for Firefox (version 78.11.0_ESR), and allowed the program to access the internet from the installation path: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe". However, internet access is inaccessable? Does Firefox makes some DETOUR route without my knowelage or is it just me and my moderate IQ? All other applications have full respect to Windows Defender Firewall rules. Thank you.

Hello,


I use web.de and gmx.de.

The form data I had always entered were suggested to me via drop down. This is still the case with web.de, but not with gmx.


In the Firefox settings I agreed to fill in the login information automatically, but it doesn't help. The following are checked:

Asking whether to save login credentials and passwords for websites

- Fill in login details and passwords automatically

- Generate and suggest strong passwords


In the chronicle I chose "create".

A change to "user-defined" does not change anything.

The following are checked:

Save visited pages and download history

Save entered search terms and form data


The point "Forms & automatic filling", which is often mentioned on the web, does not exist for me under "Data protection & security".


I would really appreciate any help.


Many greetings

I know this is an old issue. I'm getting it now, FF 90.0.2 64-bit, Windows 10 Pro N, Build 19041.vb_release.191206-1406. System updated. Not very often it starts playing for a fraction of a second. Videos and GIFs everywhere else (as far as places I normally go) plays as it should. Troubleshoot mode didn't solve it; hardware acceleration tweak neither. No crash logs.

Tried on the Edge and everything is fine.

Question: does the suggested "fix" on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-video-audio-problems-firefox-windows embraces this issue as well? If so, sorry, but might be time to change browsers. The reason I'm using Windows 10 PRO ->N<- is exactly not to have to remove Windows Media Player and related "bloat" from my system. This isn't one of those crybaby threats I hate to read: it's a necessity.

I must ask: why on Edge, on the same machine, the same problem doesn't exist as in Firefox.

Suggestion for mentioned article: might be helpful point users (also) to the right place of The Media Feature Pack for N and KN versions of Windows 10, on https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48231

Thanks

Hi! When I adjust a volume (Ej. 30%) elsewhere, when change the focus to Firefox browser, the volume automatically raised to 100% no matter if the page or pages are in blank or with content. And when I change to other application, the volume is back to original state (in this case 30%). Yes, it changes system volume, not the app volume. Searched all over internet and couldn't find solution.

Tried: - Deactivate all sound enhancement. - Deactivate sound lowering in call. - Change sound card (realtek to Nvidia) - Change output (back panel, front panel) - Updated drivers - Unplugged periphericals - Deactivate Control media via keyboard, headset, or virtual interface - Changed media.default_volume in about:config Nothing works

This only happen with Firefox and Chrome browsers. Microsoft edge, games and other multimedia apps has not problem.

I am using AMD Ryzen 5600X Asus TUF b550m 16GB RAM

Firefox 90.0.2 Windows 10, Version 20H2, Build 19042.1110

Hope we could find a solution. This is very annoying when using a headset. Regards
