I'm trying to use Microsoft Teams in Firefox because the native app for Linux is abandoned and crashes, and at first sight the app is blocking Firefox on purpose. Buttons to make calls are disabled, stating that audio and video are not supported in my browser, but everything works normally if join to existing calls using e.g. links.

Is it possible to trick Teams to think I'm using Chrome? I found the "User-Agent Switcher and Manager" add-on, but I can't figure out how to possibly use it.

I type "http://localhost:30001" into Firefox, then I see the connection reset error. In my web developer tools, under networking, I see NS_ERROR_NET_RESET.

This only happens in Firefox. http://localhost:30001 will resolve correctly in Chrome and Edge.

To troubleshoot, I have:

  1. Tried visiting the site in Troubleshooting Mode
  2. Cleared everything (history, cache, offline data, etc)
  3. Disabled http3 (based on a StackOverflow.com recommendation)
  4. Disconnected from my VPN
  5. I am not using a proxy

What can I do to stop this misbehavior?

Recently, when I try to play a video on YouTube on Firefox, there is a flickering brightness effect (some aspects of the video seem to flicker bright and dark quickly) which is distracting and makes it difficult to watch anything. The effect persists even when launching in troubleshooting mode, and disabling hardware acceleration and restarting appears to have no effect. I have also been unsuccessful refreshing Firefox. Nevertheless, this issue is absent on Safari and Chrome when watching the same video.

Watching a solid colored video like this helps see the issue best, if it is happening to your device: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJmFYZEcpZA The brightness switch is visible even when pausing the video.

When I find the same video two different places (ex: the Apple Sept 12 Event on Apple's site, versus on YouTube) only the YouTube video has the issue. However, I can't find any settings to change on YouTube to help this.

New to Firefox...downloaded on Iphone, and started moving articles from chrome readling list to firefox. BUT, it's not syncing on my ipad or my desktop (pc). I scanned the QR code with my phone, but it says I need to do it through the app (which I am).

I'm switching because chrome keeps crashing. The biggest thing I use it for is when I see an article I want to read later, I can add on my phone, and it shows up on my laptop, pc, and Ipad. I'm sure firefox does the same?

PS: I'm very much not a computer person, so please dumb down for me :)

When I doubleclick an image in Azure DevOps, it's supposed to open fullscreen in a popup/tab. That popup opens, and immediately closes afterwards.

How do I fix this?

Popups are explicitly allowed on this site, but it doesn't make a difference. I have tried turning off content blockers, and changing between strict and standard privacy settings.

I don't really want to go on a wild goose chase and try a billion different things. Rather, I'd like to know how to diagnose this. So how can I know what mechanism is responsible for closing the popup. This will allow me to narrow my diagnosis a great deal.

It would also help to know how I can 100% prevent anything other than the user from being able to close a tab. Just to test what happens inside that popup. Because how can I know what's going on in a popup that lives for a few milliseconds? I'm not that fast.

Hello.

My name is Kris and I have been a life-long Firefox user. Recently I have come across this great Firefox Onebar CSS style, which I have become obsessed with: https://codeberg.org/Freeplay/Firefox-Onebar, which aims to modify the Firefox default appearance. I have installed it according to instruction and introduced few tweaks offered for consideration iin the aforementioned link:

  • onebar.hide-all-URLbar-icons
  • onebar.disable-https-truncate
  • onebar.disable-single-tab

This is the most far I have gone without further ruining the browser by manually editing the Userchrome.css file.

Could I please request your help with adjusting said file content to make minor changes? My expectations are to leave everything untouched besides the following:

  • all flexible spaces are removed
  • the Extensions button is removed
  • the List All Tabs button is removed
  • the Home and Refresh buttons are permanently visible and aligned to the left of URL bar, followed by conditionally visible Back and Forward arrows upon their activation (they seem to be in the URL bar already however are invisible)
  • the Hamburger is permanently visible and aligned to the right of the URL bar(it seems to be in the URL bar already, but is invisible)
  • the search box is aligned to the left, but is preceded by Home, Refresh buttons and Navigation arrows

The Navigation arrows and Hamburger menu invisibility issue might have to do with the colour that has assumed the same one as the theme URL bar background.

If you could please modify that style for me, that would be so great, indeed. I have been obsessed with that ever since I have discovered it. Alternatvely, please direct me to a forum/IRC channel where I can place that request.

Thank you, hank you, thank you. Please, respond. Kris.

So some website didn't work for me and I pressed "forget" button thinking it only removes history from a particular website (no). That's it - EVERYTHING COLLAPSED, session is lost, all tabs gone. Trying to restore from "sessionstore.backup" - no result. Trying from synced - oh sure CRAP IS TURNED OFF like always for NO reason

Thanks a lot, douchebag morons. Hope you all die + anyone suggesting to copy "sessionrestore" gets testicle/boob cancer + anyone suggesting to turn sync on can eat my crap

Every day I have to work and use my pinned tabs. But now, they disappear every time Firefox restarts, notwithstanding that your settings indicated Firefox will reopen all tabs on the next session. Why? Where I live there are blackouts every day, especially during the night. So I have to close all my programs, turn off my computer, and restart it early in the morning in order to work. Please turn back to reopen pinned tabs every time Firefox reopens!

I use doxy me for telehealth. Recently my clients have been having audio issues, hearing their voice echo back when using telehealth. Doxy said it is the Firefox browser. They have had reports from other users of Firefox, that since the most recent update, people have had audio issues with echos when talking. They suggested I not use Firefox as a browser when working with Doxy me. Is there anyway this can be corrected or will I have to switch to Chrome as my go to browser?
