I recently bought a new mac mini. it is running os 11.12.1 and is the new mac M1 chip. I downloaded the latest version of firefox, 85.0.2 It seems to work great..... but after a few days i have noticed that when i first wake up the computer in the morning AND after i wake it up after it's gone to sleep during the day the browser doesn't work correctly. Trackpad won't scroll. Typing won't type. Clicking on a tab dosen't open the tab..... UNTIL i click on another window of the browser, then when i go back to the first window it has opened the tab i clicked on. Very odd. If i quit firefox and open it again it works. But this is not ideal.

Anyone else experiencing this? Anyone have a solution??

Thanks, Miranda

After moving to Firefox 78 ESR, get/setCookieString() is no longer working. For example:

       if (cookieService != null) {
           cookieService.setCookieString(cookieUri, null, "CertCheckDone=1;", null);
           myTrace("cookie is " + cookieService.getCookieString(cookieUri, null));
       }
   }

Firefox is running in kiosk mode and this code was executed with a hook in browser.js. Can someone please help me with this? Are there APIs I can use in place of these or are the Webextension APIs the only way to set a cookie now? I have tried playing around and can load a temporary extension but it's removed when restarting the browser and this also has to run in kiosk mode.

When trying to use Google meet, Firefox asks for permission to use the mic from my webcam (Logitech Pro9000) but not video. The only video option shown for permissions is my NDI source. The Logitech is nowhere to be found in the pull-down. Works fine in Edge, Windows Camera, etc.

I set the colors of visited links and unvisited links in [Options]-[General]-[Language and Appearance]-[Color].

If you want to take effect, you need to select [All] in [Use the color you selected above to overwrite the color specified on the page]

In this way, all styles of all website pages: text color and background color are all changed.

Is there a way to only change the color of the link, while the text and background colors still use the web page's own; or specify that only the domain name pages in the list list use the specified color, and the website's own default color is used for those that are not explicitly specified?

bookmarks wasted space to left of columns

For some reason, my long column (about 1,000 bookmarks) have an intolerable indent space/empty area to the left of each entry...about 2-3 in long and for all bookmarks, so that I have to stretch out the names and reduce my main viewer window as a result.

   IF I try to just move the whole lot leftward, that cuts out the "bookmarks" with the black star as well as search bookmarks entry bar.  A long time ago, I thought it had a left right scroll tab at the very bottom.  All support entries talk about moving the whole column to the right side of the screen-what I need is 1) an ability to move all bookmarks titles to the left edge as much as possible while keeping orientation with the top "star/bookmarks".
   I do use a zoom button for browsing the web, but reducing screen size has nothing to do with the overly fat/wide bookmarks area-there has got to be a way to put it on a diet!!!

BONUS: if anyone knows on a Mac running High Sierra or any other os, how the heck do you increase size of other menus that don't respond to zoom (command + or _)..even ones not on Firefox? Any recommended zoom apps for menus intrinsic to macs in general?

Only in Gmail, if I click on an item I get a new window that says, "Firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page." Then there's an "allow" button at the right side.

How do I stop this from happening? It's getting extremely annoying.

Thank so much!!

I would like to give my opinion, but your survey link is not working (https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/Give-feedback-landing-page)

Well, I wanted to say that firefox for windows needs better integration : - fingerprint reader for unlocking passwords instead of master password - windows trackpad gestures needs to be integrated (example: slide two fingers to left/right to go backward/forward in navigation)

Chrome and Edge do them already, I think you really need to this.

Regards.

Hi,

I'm using a Ken Burns effect for my website. Usually the animation used to run smoothly as it should.

However, since a few weeks, the animation runs very rough. Please have a look for yourself:

Interestingly, other browsers such as Edge or Chrome do NOT have this problem.

What's wrong with Firefox in that matter?

Thanks for your help!

Hy all,I can't access youtube.com. When I try Mozilla says:

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.youtube.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.youtube.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

ANY FIX? TNX!

I have a multiple page email or document and I only want to print one single page. On the standard print dialog box there was an option to click "current page". This was fast as it only involved one single click and then hit print. After an updated a few months ago the option to print the current page is not longer highlighted and cannot be clicked. I have to chose "pages" then type in the page number then click the print button. Can the print current page radio button be engaged again in the config somewhere?
