Controlling camera in Firefox

Hi there,

I have a laptop running Windows 10, plus the latest version of Firefox. The laptop has a built-in webcam. I have also connected an external webcam via USB. This second camera is better quality and preferred, I visit a web site. When I first activate the camera, I am presented with a dropdown of available cameras. The USB camera appears in the list. All is fine. I instruct Firefox to "allow" this camera to be used. (first image) However, after a short time, less than a second, the same dialog is shown again, this time without the USB camera. (second image) There have been no actual hardware changes. I can then click "allow" again and the *integrated* camera works, i.e. not the desired camera. So, two questions, really. First, what just happened? Did Firefox try to control the USB camera, find that it couldn't, and redisplay the dialog showing only the "controllable" option? Second, my desired endpoint here is for the web site to use the USB camera. How do I achieve this? I can easily do this with Chrome but I like Firefox. TIA.

I used to be able to copy a Zoom recording link into Firefox and then click Shift+Right-click and I would get the option to "Save video as". This no longer gives me this option. I can only "save page as" now.

Please help! Why was this change made? Is there a setting I need to fix?

Thanks, May

How to create timer around remote settings

The issue I am facing, and for which I direct my question to all you intelligent beings, is that my network is being hammered by connections to firefox-settings-attachments.cdn.mozilla.net.

When looking at the squid logs, I see the following: access.log:1678216931.488 170104 1.2.3.155 TCP_TUNNEL/200 11400353 CONNECT firefox-settings-attachments.cdn.mozilla.net:443 - CARP/1.2.2.11 -

If I understand correctly, this connection is to download new files that pertain to security, cert revocation lists, blocklists, plus a bunch of non-security related stuff.

The question is, how do I make this file downloaded as small as possible while still keeping the security bits... (saw this page, and followed what I thought pertinent https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections) The second question is... can we do a scheduled window to perform these downloads?

If you are asking why I am having network issues over 11 Mb, the answer is that all my clients go through a corporate proxy... We have many thousand devices and last time we choked the network with 80GB downloaded on a timeframe of 15 min.

Thanks much!

Mouse middle click scrolling problem in Twitter (Problem in FireFox, not Chrome)

I autoscroll, using the middle mouse button a lot. I middle click, release the button, and just move the mouse. To stop the scrolling I click the middle button again.

The problem is that in Twitter (only when using Firefox, not Chrome), and perhaps a very few other websites, if I make that second click (to end scrolling) over a link or linked image, the link opens (in a new tab). This is very frustrating, since I can move the mouse anywhere while scrolling, and I commonly mistakenly open links this way, interrupting my reading.

If I am *not* autoscrolling and middle-click on a link in Twitter, nothing happens. (Perfect!) But if I am autoscrolling the link opens (Bad!).

How can I set up Firefox to that the middle mouse button will never open links, and only function for scrolling?

Hello,

We're currently working on a demo that enables Stable Diffusion, a deep learning model that generates high-quality images according to text prompts, on web browsers with only client-side GPUs. In our use cases, WebGPU is a perfect fit. You can find our GitHub repository for this project here: https://github.com/mlc-ai/web-stable-diffusion.

However, at the moment, it's only possible to run the demo via Chrome Canary (Chrome's nightly build). We're very interested in getting it to work on Firefox as well, but we're encountering vague error messages in Firefox's nightly build with the `dom.webgpu.enabled` flag turned on.

I would love to ask two questions: 1) How mature is Firefox's WebGPU support on Metal? 2) Is there any pointers we could follow to develop WebGPU demos for Firefox?

Thanks a lot!

I have different login forms on different sub domains so I always get a huge lists of different logins. and also I get my password for the basic auth from the web-server on my login form.

I also consider this as a security risk when different sub domains belong to different parties and I accidentally put my password into the wrong form.

Can I config Firefox the way that I get only passwords in the list that match the exact url or at least the (sub)domain?

Another Question As a Web-developer can I do something that my client don't experience such a mess (like giving the login form a special id so passwords are restricted do this particular form.

I have been using (VIEWING articles in // saving articles TO my) FIREFOX "POCKET" for more than a year.

I have the pocket ICON on my upper toolbar. But ALL that seems to do is allow me to ADD an open page TO Pocket. I have NO clue how to simply **Go t o POCKET** and VIEW any / all my saved items there.

Good God, WHAT is the secret handshake??! ...in trying to figure this out I see numerous things telling me to SIGN IN to pocket ... IF way back when I began using pocket I MADE a USER NAME / Password for it, that info is long forgotten. I HAVE a FIREFOX account ... was sent therewhile supposedly (according to Firefox" HELP") to 'sign in' to my POCKET account. Only took me to an overall FIREFOX account page - wherein NO LONK there referred AT ALL to POCKET.

I 'SAVE' to my pocket (ICON) almost daily. NEVER need any kind of sign in for this. NOW I want to LOOK AT / READ some of these - BUT FIND NOWAY TO GET THERE. ICON omly SAVES a page.

Ridiculous. HOW do I VIEW / SEE / FIND /READ my saved pocket items?
