On Firefox 90 on Ubuntu 20.04, when a site asks for camera and microphone permissions, it’s not possible to select any device anymore. It just shows the default camera and the default microphone.

Earlier Firefox releases used to show a selection list for the camera and also another one for the microphone.

My default camera is the one built into the laptop and I would like to use an external one that has adequate picture quality.

Can you please help selecting a camera with the new Firefox?

I would like Firefox to access the Mac OS "Dictionary" for immediate definitions, the way it accesses its own dictionary for spelling, or as Mac's Safari, accesses the Mac dictionary. I see nothing listed in Firefox>Services, nor does the OS's Services Preferences show Firefox as an app to connect services to. I can always get the definition with a right-click on the highlighted word, but I'd like the definition to be a readily available as the spelling.

TIA,

My bookmarks toolbar disappeared. I was able to restore it, but it's blank. Using an add-in, I can show my bookmarks in a side pane. That pane does show a Bookmarks Toolbar folder, which has the expected contents.

Additional issue: how do I rearrange my toolbars. The desired order, from top to bottom is title menu navigation tabs bookmarks

Hi all,

I am trying to customize my Firefox on Mac because the tabs on top interfere with the menu bar, thus I only want tree-style tab extension to work on the side, with the tabs on top disabled.

I followed this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1184674#answer-1028260 as well as this clear guide on how to create userChrome.css: https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html When I tried to restart the browser, I seemed to have been logged out of my profile, with all customization gone and a standard white (instead of black) menu. I deleted the chrome folder and it is normal again now.

I suspect the userChrome.css file should contain more than just the one line I tried to add: #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } ; Is there any location where I can copy my current intra-browser customization into the userChrome.css file?

I have always had PDFs set to "Always ask" is described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-firefox-behavior-when-open-file This hasn't changed. The dialog which asks what to do with the file used to have "Save File" selected by default. This was convenient, because this is usually what I want. However, the default selection has recently changed to "Open with Firefox", which I hardly ever want. This requires me to perform an extra step when accessing PDFs from the Web, which I do quite often. I am not aware of having done anything which would affect this, nor have I found a corresponding option to change it back. How can I restore the previous behaviour?
