I am using Virb Edit 5.4.3 ( on a Windows PC) (It works fine on my Apple laptop.) and when I import GPX Metrix I get a message stating "you are using a browser that is not supported by the Google Maps JavaScript API. Being an old geezer of 75, I have no idea what that means. Is there a setting in Firefox that I can change to fix that or what? Appreciate the help. Thanks, Robin T.

I am running MS Outlook 365 on Firefox. But the Outlook implementation does not fit in within the Firefox window so I have to move the slide to the left and right to either read the message preview or see the the buttons on the left or the complete list of emails. Changing the Firefox zoom or font size does not address it. Is there a solution? Thanks

the labels toggle button on google maps is unresponsive in both satellite and maps views. where do i find a setting to allow this button to become active? can i program the button to become active? thanks for any help.

i'm on windows 11 and use firefox web browser. both are up to date. i tried it on the microsoft edge browser and it works.

i've tried disabling all addons, restarted firefox, and problem still exists.

next i went through all of my firefox settings and toggled those that might apply. problem still exists.

next went into about:config and checked all settings not set at default. toggled any that might apply. problem still there.

any other suggestions in the community? is there a particular area of firefox i should look into closer. i would prefer not to have to reinstall or reconfigure firefox on a wholesale level. i have it highly customized and it would take multiple hours over a number of days to get everything back to where it is. this is the only site giving me a problem, and only this function on the site.

under layers/more the globe view toggle works fine, only the labels view toggle is not working.

i inspected the button element in 'firefox inspect' and found the attribute disabled="false". google maps is not honouring the attribute. when i remove the attribute, the button works. i cannot apply this across sessions though.

I'm running 64 bit Win 11 Pro Version 21H2 OS Build 22000.1219 and Firefox 107.0, and the first time I click to open Firefox, I receive message "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item". If I clear the error box and click again, Firefox comes up normally. This happens every time I bring up Firefox. It's not a show-stopper, but very annoying.

Hi,

is there a way to change the start direction of shift+arrow left/right in the address bar when it suggests an address for completion? It's the other way around in chrome and I got very used to it over the past years. now since I switched to firefox recently it's annoying me somewhat that I can't use this shortcut which I used like 20+ times a day before.

Here is an example, I'm starting to type an Address and then after 3-4 letters starting to press shift+arrow left/right. In Chrome it moves from where I stopped typing (which makes more sense for me at least): https://screencloud.de/638c84d6e432c.gif In Firefox is starts from the end of the suggested URL (which is kinda useless in most cases): https://screencloud.de/638c8507d973f.gif

If there isn't an option for that I'd suggest adding one maybe, cause It's really helpful to quickly correct somehing without having to touch the mouse ot type the entire address out by hand if the suggested url is really long.

Thanks a lot in advance!

It's so maddening trying to do something as simple as accessing all my bookmarks! Why?! It's an integral feature of browsing that pinheads around the globe, like me, use on a regular basis? Why does it have to be a mystery easter egg hunt just to find them?! Why does it have to be one of the major topics on your Support page instead of simple, and user friendly, so it's not one of the likely topics people need help with? When I click on the bookmarks symbol, I can access the most recent bookmarks but not the rest. I searched online and the help said to access them in the Library. Where the [expletive] is the library? It's not visible. Not in Settings. Is this browser made for masochists that love torture?! Ahhhgggg!

Since the last Firefox update, my logins are no longer saved from one session to the next...and neither are my devices, even when I specifically give the site permission to save the current device. I have to log in to most sites (email, bill pay, etc.) every single time, and in most cases the site insists on sending me a text or an email to verify it's me. This is entirely new behavior since the last update, and I can't figure out how to get around it. Suggestions??

I have Firefox 107.0.1 installed on my windows 11 22H2 OS Build 22621.900 and I had around 63 tabs or so open. I ALWAYS click the "X" in the top right corner and then it brings up the "close xx" tabs window. Then when I reopen firefox I can click history>restore previous session. Anyways I closed regular firefox.. because a friend of mine wanted to look up something but not interfere with my open tabs so we opened firefox private browsing.. thinking it wouldn't interfere with normal firefox... Yet when I went back to normal firefox and tried to go to history>restore previous session it was grayed out. So how do I get a hold of Mozilla to restore my account and stuff to 12/01/2022 at around 3am CST? Also how do I let them know that firefox private browsing has this issue with messing up open tabs in non-private browsing firefox? This is severely annoying and disappointing. I have tabs open for a reason and they should all stay there until I close them. But now they're gone and I wish to have them back. So if someone could let me know how to get a hold of a Mozilla/firefox staff member so they can revert my account that would be awesome. Just to be clear I was able to replicate the issue by having a few tabs open in normal firefox and then closing it.. then opening private browsing firefox and closing it. You should be able to go to history>restore previous session in normal firefox to be able to get your tabs back.. but are unable to do so after opening and closing private browsing firefox. Why is this? I thought they were separate and shouldn't interfere with each other in this way?
