Hi, I'm migrating to a new PC and followed the below article to open all my currently synced tabs from the old machine on my new one: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1357426

The issue is that the on the new machine when I open all synced tabs, the order is reversed, i.e. my latest tabs that are on the right on the old machine are now on the left in my new machine. How do I tell open all tabs to keep the same order in the new machine? Any help is greatly appreciated..!

Thanks! manoja

Hi friends, I need to watch Offline a series of professional videos from a website I study with. I'll be in a place with no internet for a while so I wish to know how to use the "work offline" modality to do that. Can the browser "remember" videos in the same way it remembers visited page?

I remember in the 90s / 2000s was possible to "save" pages to read Offline later on... Is that still possible?

Thanks

I disable my option "Restore previous session" and it works fine if i close my firefox.

But if i do not close my firefox and reboot my computer directive, the session will restore at next startup.

Obviously when i reboot my computer, I don't want to see my tabs anymore, but I failed to find any setting to do so. I also find someone say to set `browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash` in `about:config`, but it doesn't work, and I don't think it is the proper way to solve this problem because reboot is not crash.

Developer Tools "Find" next, previous, replace options?

I've been professional web developer for almost 15 years. I've wanted to try to step away from Chrome, but I'm having a hard time navigating through basic functionality with Firefox's developer tools. One of those was a simple "Control + F" find feature. Am I missing something?

Specifically, lets say I want to search for a specific class within a style sheet. In Chrome I can bring up the dev tools, select the style sheet, Control + F, and it will give me a toolbar with options to step through each instance of the class. It gives me total count and I can hit the up or down arrow to cycle through each instance of that class (insert any selector here). I can also Replace an instance or all instances.

When I try this in Firefox's dev tools, I get the first instance but see no way to do anything else. If I hit enter it doesn't cycle through to the next instance but creates a line break in my style sheet.

I've researched with no success. I know there is the filter option but that isn't what I'm looking for in this case. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Using FF 108.0.2 (64-bit) in Debian 11 Linux,I need to view http://www3.winsystem.org/monitor/webmonitor.php but my new laptop is very high resolution. I can control the text size with Ctrl+ but the background gif image of a small window with bogus scrollbar needs to be made larger somehow so that the white text can be read against the black portion of the image.

Is there some way to enlarge the gif image, please?

Remember Focus (search hit number) of Search in Page e.g. 17/34 and not back to 1/34

I have to search for a lot of entries in a long page, click on them to another window, do something (fill in a syllabus) and then go back to the long page and change the next search hit.

When I return to the long page the search in page is remembering where I am in the number of searches shown at the bottom of the page (e.g. 19/34) but when I click on the down button, instead of going to 20/34 it jumps back to 1/34 so then I have to press the down button 20 times to get to the next search hit.

Is there any way around this, so that I can just jump to the next search hit without having to press the down button 20 times?

I thought it might be the fact that the search is off screen but that is not it. It is the fact that I have left the page so the focus has been forgotten (except as the number 19/34 on the search in page bar at the bottom).

Is this a bug?

I realize that the page I am using findbar to search from reloads and scrolls to the top using some Javascript so that when I return to the searched page from a popup, the last search item is no longer focused when I come back so (or press F3 or Ctrl G) e.g. if I found the 29th hit, then I have to click down 30 times to get to the next search hit.

I tried using add-in Luminous to disable the reload/scroll to top of the page that I am searching but failed. It is a complicated add-in.

Is there any way to jump say 10 hits down at once?

I've been making my own Firefox theme using the Firefox Color extension. I uploaded an image but I can't figure out how to show the image on the new tab screen. Setting the new tab page color to transparent only makes everything white. I know the image is uploaded correctly because I can see some of it in the toolbar and tab list. Is it possible to show the image on the new tab page?

I have two computers (say A and B). I want to move the entire Bookmark toolbar from A to a folder in the Bookmark toolbar on B. This would allow me to selectively move folders and bookmarks from the A Bookmark toolbar upload to the toolbar on B. So far I cannot get the Import or Restore to upload to a single empty folder on the B bookmark toolbar.

I have tried to upload previously exported Html and Json files from A to a specific empty folder on B's bookmark tool bar but either the file overwrites the entire toolbar on B or nothing appears to happen.

I thought that by selecting a folder in the "Manage Bookmark" dialog box that the subsequent upload of either the Html or Json files would all go there but it does not appear to work.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

My homepage has shortcut links to various sites. Those which I visit frequently I have pinned to the page. I would like to be able to add and pin other websites to the page. The only option that appears to available is to go through all the unwanted ones to dismiss them and wait on serendipity to produce the ones I want to keep. All the advice online to the same question is support for Android.

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!

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!

Not sure if this is the best place to ask, but when I try to take a document from one place and try to insert it into another document, hitting Crtl-A, Ctrl-C or -X to cut it from Doc 1 then hitting Ctrl-V and pasting it into Doc 2 wipes out the margin setting arrows so I can't change the margins to match Doc 2. And my attempts to get around that screw up the formatting of the document. Any suggestions? Thanks.

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.
