Audio was working fine until recently. Now, firefox has no audio playing on any site.

Some sites show "PLAYING" in tab, but others like YouTube don't show that notification. Even with "PLAYING", there is no audio output.

I checked Windows settings and Firefox is set up correct (and the same as it was before it stopped working), see screenshot attached. Otherwise, I restarted Firefox, tried it in troubleshoot mode, and reinstalled Firefox. No changes.

Possible system changes include: Maybe a Firefox update occured and broke the program? I installed the game Civ5 from Steam which required some Windows VS redistributibles installed.

Hi! There are multiple recent threads on this issue, and not one of them has a solution, so I'm asking again. I want to increase the font size of the top header text, specifically the bookmarks toolbar, search bar, and tab titles. The text is too small for me to read. It would also be useful if I could increase the font size for the applications menu (the hamburger drop down menu in the far right of the header).

I do not want to increase the size of anything else, so changing layout.css.devPixelsPerPx is not the solution. I have changed my global zoom settings, and set them specifically to "Zoom text only", but this setting does not effect the bookmarks toolbar or the search bar. Changing the default font size also does not increase the size of this text.

Just to clarify again, these threads are not solutions to my question: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1214027 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293358

I'm trying to load a temporary add-on on my browser, but when I click the button "Load temporary add-on", nothing show up.

I tried to look for errors in the console or debugging tool, but nothing. With snap, I removed with the purge option my Firefox and install it again, but the issue still appears.

Some technical details: Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Firefox version 101.0.1 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox Snap for Ubuntu canonical-002 - 1.0

My bookmarks toolbar is empty. When looking through the bookmarks menu, it shows that none of my bookmarks have been removed, and they are all still listed as being present in the Bookmarks toolbar, but they are not displayed in such. To be clear, bookmarks toolbar is enabled, and I have already verified its positioning in the customize toolbar pane. There is a strip of empty space where they used to be, but they are simply missing now. How do I fix whatever issue caused the toolbar to cease displaying my bookmarks?

Firefox allow to disable access to canvas for lowering fingerprinting, it's cool !

But as web developer : i like to ask this access before try to using it,

Something like :

1. Do you alllow canvas ? 2. Show the browser part 3. Wait for user answer 4. It's OK : download PDF done with canvass 5. It's not OK : shown an error to user.

To avoid such situation (see screencast)

The font size in the toolbar is too small. I mean the text on the tops describing my open tabs, the bookmarks toolbar, etc.

I cannot find an actionable answer to how to increase or change the font size. I need a solution, but not written in a tech language. Is there one?

This question has to do with logging into web sites with an email and a password. Firefox 101.0.1 (64-bit). Windows 10.

On many sites, when I click in the email field, a drop down list of email addresses appears from which I can make a selection using the mouse or up/down arrow keys. Some web sites have as few as two email addresses in the drop down list, others have many more. I recall that one site has about fifteen email addresses in the drop down list.

How can I remove a non-applicable email address from the drop down list?

How can I clear the drop down list of all email addresses?

Thanks.

Hi,

I use Mendeley Web Extension to pull articles and other things from Firefox directly into my Mendeley library. I will usually rapidly read through the PDF file online before deciding to add it or not. For some unknown reason, Firefox blocks the use of Mendeley on PDF file, for security reasons, and I can no longer add them to my library. Most references are only available as PDF files making the add-on completely useless. Is there a security feature that I can disable to be able to use the extension again?

Kind regards,

Mathias

For some reason, whenever I load a pdf from within Firefox, I get a new tab with the regular toolbar displayed on top of pdf files, but the document itself is completely blank (see attached screenshot). This issue just started today and I assume it was a result of an update, since I don't recall making any changes to my settings (I'm using Firefox 101.0.1 on Ubuntu 20.04).

I've tried opening multiple files from a variety of sites with the same result. All of them open fine using my system's pdf viewer, as well as from within Chromium. I've tried disabling my plugins, putting Firefox into safe mode and resetting all the handlers, to no avail. Any help would be much appreciated.
