When copying data from a site which contains a long list (= one requiring scrolling down), any list item which references a large jpg file causes the site to reset to its top when editing of that file is completed.

Firefox should have an option which holds a long-list file at the item most recently edited or copied. It is bothersome and unnecessary to keep scrolling down a long list every time a complex copy or edit is performed.

Example: https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Charaxes is a typical long list. See the figure for Charaxes boueti, for an example of a figure which, when copied as a jpg, causes the list to reset to its top.

If an edit option is not added, at least ALL edits of a long list should keep the edit location displayed. Currently, this holds only for editing of simple images, not complex, multi-item images requiring jpg formatting.

When a push notification is received, the display turns on (via DPMS). Is it possible to get rid of this behavior? Is there some configuration option in Firefox in about:config? I can't exclude that it's not Firefox doing this, but I'm guessing it is.

This is pissing me off so much! I'm working and in the middle of everything I have no other option than to completely restart my browser, which can easily resolve into losing what I was doing, not to mention that it completely kills my workflow. STOP DOING THIS! I don't care what the reason is, you're severely hindering the usage of the app. I will decide when to restart, not the app! I have a fresh start of my system every single day, I'm sure whatever unimportant update it was this time can wait a few hours.

Hello,

I am deploying Firefox to Windows 10 devices using Mozilla's latest template and I want to enable HTTPS-Only mode under "Privacy & Security" when I deploy Firefox using Intune. I have gone through all the options available here, but I did not find such an option.

Firefox is deployed and it takes other customization and settings changes I make. Which means my admx file is working fine.

If the option to enable HTTPS-Only mode via Intune using admx is not yet possible, I would like to know if there is a way to deploy HTTPS-Everywhere with the option "Encrypt All Sites Eligible" ON.

Thanks.

Hi from a short time back I've noticed my local pages (vdeveloping on localhost) are being cached regardless of my config which is not caching anything at all. This is particularly annoying when you make small changes and they're not reflected at once but instead they are only after 5,6,... 10 reloading calls.

I've searched for help and followed the instructions of changing options in about:config with no results

I'm using Linux and 96 version of the browser.

Thanks in advance

First of all , Hello  :) FF is a great wb and i use it everywhere i got a machine. Works fine everywhere .. but here on this computer. Why only on this machine ? Same distros ( linux mint 20.3 ) radeon video cards , amd family cpu's This machine is AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six-Core Processor × 6 the video card atm is AMD PITCAIRN (DRM 2.50.0, 5.4.0-94-generic, LLVM 12.0.0) though i had the same crash issue with a nVidia graphics card. Memory is Corsair and the memtest86 reports no errors. This is where i get a bit lost. Memory issues or hardware defects might explain this but where's one to begin ? Trouble is , no other application ever crashes and it's rock solid. So is FF to point a finger at or something else ? That's the objective of me submitting this report. Try to find out what's really at fault here and fix it.

The crashes happen at all times. It can also be right at starting FF and never even reaching the main window. I tried with and without the --safe-mode and it's the same that also happens.

So i submitted one of the crash reports ID: 656264f4-7867-4c55-8b36-0637e0220114

The report can be found here : https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/656264f4-7867-4c55-8b36-0637e0220114

Since there's so many i hesitate to put them all up , there's dozens since the system reinstall yesterday , i reinstalled the whole OS again yesterday to try to get rid of the bug. Any help to solve this once and for all will be highly appreciated . :) thanks for reading

How do I reverse what happened to 'History' when I accidentally clicked 'Forget About This Site' instead of 'Delete Page' on the drop-down menu for the highlighted page in the history feed.

I realise that I caused this problem last night when I clicked the wrong option in the drop-down menu but only became aware of what I had done when I went to my history feed this afternoon. I was looking in my history feed to find a site that I visited yesterday and noticed that a website that I have visited several times earlier today is not appearing in the feed. It is the same site that I clicked the wrong selection in the drop-down menu for last night.

How do I get 'History' to start showing that site in the feed again?

Hello since the update to FF 96 I noticed that the container indicator for the current tab was a few pixel lower than the indicator for other tabs.

Since this was not happening in troubleshoot mode I tried disabling my addons one by one and found that the problem was caused by Firefox Color: any change from the default FF theme (including selecting one of the FF Colors preset themes) moves the container indicator downward.

I also tested this on a new browser profile, installing only Multi-account Containers and FF Color and it looks the same, so this is not caused by other customizations on my browser.

Is this a bug in FF Color? Or something I can solve changing a configuration?

This is a dealbreaker and I'm quiting firefox because of it.

Event: "Firefox has upgraded in the background and needs to restart.

You will be able to continue where you left off..."

Infuriatingly, there is no option to postpone. All browsing is immediately prevented and there is no option to do anything other than restart. Furthermore, there is no option to turn off automatic updates or even to get a notification that one might be happening until it is too late.

Problem: The restart does not return to "where I left off" with a) only one tab re-opening (plus all private tabs lost); and b) many logins and much form-filling progress lost. For example, I was in the process of submitting a government form in a private tab when, on the last step, instead of the final confirmation page, I got the dreaded "Firefox has upgraded and needs to restart" message. Upon restart, the tab didn't reopen, and I lost the session and had to start again from the beginning with the form filling process. Utterly infuriating and completely unnecessary.

I was putting up with Firefox's other annoying quirks, but this is ridiculous.

Firefox version: 95.0.1 x64 on Linux Mint 19.1, running in safe-mode

As title says, the 'Mobile Bookmarks' folder synced from a Firefox Android aren't saved when exporting the bookmarks to an HTML file. They ARE saved during 'Backup to a JSON' but HTML with 20,000 bookmarks is much easier to edit than a JSON (unless anyone has a handy and quick JSON editor recommendation?).

So bug, or notbug?

Hi all, I've set up proxy auto configuration with wpad. And it's working, but not in every case: On my android (version 10) phone I can enter in the advanced options the "Proxy Auto-Config" with a PAC URL. This works, but only for Chrome. When I use Firefox, the proxy is not used. Any Idea why this is the case and how this could be resolved?

I also downloaded the nightly build. With about:config I can set the network.proxy.autoconfig_url. There I added the PAC URL. But the browser still don't use the proxy. Any idea how to make this working?

Cheers

How to share the tabs across all open windows?

Hi, I work in GNU/Linux + Gnome with several tabs (around 100). They have different context (research, personal, related to a course, and work; are some examples). I use several windows with several tabs each. I would like to have one group per window, to be able to close a window and not losing the tabs it had, (to close all the windows and be able to reopen them).

I cannot find a way to organize my tabs in such a way that windows don't isolate their tabs. There are plenty of add-ons to group tabs. But all of them end up hiding/unhiding the tabs of only the current window.

It looks that the underlying architecture is this: OS has Firefox. Firefox has Windows. Windows have tabs. Tabs are manageable only in the window they belong to.

Therefore, every window is only aware of its own group of tabs.

What I am looking for is a different approach, or at least the illusion of it: OS has Firefox Firefox has Tabs. Tabs are manageable, from any instance of a window.

Therefore, the window is only a viewer that is aware of all the tabs.

The plug-ins: Panorama Tab Group, Simple Tab Groups, and similar work a bit, but if I open a new window, and do some browsing, the old window does not know anything in the new window.

Is there a setting/plugin that can solve this problem? maybe I am missing some setting or I just don't know how to use the plugins... Thanks for your time. Best

Due to problems with upgrading my Ubuntu to 18.04, I've been forced to use a LIVE DVD for the last 8 months instead of a properly installed Ubuntu. This LIVE DVD crashes or drops out from time to time so each time this happens I have to re-sync the Firefox it brings up. This re-sync requires a verification code to be sent by email, but because that email has to go through my Google filtering process, it usually takes longer than the code's 5 minute validity before I receive it. When I do finally get it and enter the received code back in Firefox, I'm told the code is invalid or expired. This is because 5 minutes validity is just too short a time for my setup. If it were 10 minutes, that would allow me to go into Gmail -> Settings -> Accounts & Import -> Check email from other accounts -> and then order Gmail to perform a special immediate mailcheck on my selected account. As a slow elderly old codger myself, I find it too hard to do all this within 5 minutes. Why can't we make it 10 mins?
