On a certain webpage the behaviour of CRTL + left click vs. right click -> open in new tab is deviating. I've tried it with turned of addons and in different versions of firefox. (It is annoying because it overrides the current tab and i have to restart the listing of podcasts)

https://www.mdr.de (for example check out the podcast episodes here https://www.mdr.de/nachrichten/podcast/kekule-corona/index.html ) CTRL + left click = mostly opens in the same tab right click menu = works fine

I've recently switched over from Google Chrome to Mozilla and I've noticed that the home page on Mozilla looks like doodoo. I have a nice theme, but the dark gray of the home page does not mesh well with it at all. Is there any way for me to change the background? I've looked around in the settings and at extensions but no dice. I've included a screenshot of the homepage so you can see how not good it looks.

Highlights only shows bookmarks added from Firefox, not those imported from an html file. There is no obvious way to fix this inconvenient behavior and no clear solution here or in other forums.

Moving the bookmarks to different locations in bookmark library has no effect. Obviously, there must be some setting or code that causes this and it should not be the default.

As a nontechnical user I am limited in my ability to find and fix the problem. But from a logical standpoint those highlights are populated from somewhere. Being able to change that location or move the imported bookmarks there should not be an easter-egg hunt.

This seems to be an ongoing and unaddressed issue. It probably persists because, while annoying, after failed attempts to resolve or get the community to address the issue, it becomes easier to just re-add the bookmarks.

As someone giving the browser a shot after deciding Opera was basically adware. This annoyance is a fairly disheartening switching cost.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello.

I am using a Raspberry Pi 400, which is 64-bit, but Mozilla Firefox automatically downloaded version 78.10.0esr (32-bit), and when I look in 'add-ons' and then 'plugins' in order to access the Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc., it isn't there. It is not mentioned anywhere at all, and so I am unable to watch Channel 4, which requires I enable DRM content.

Please help? Thanks.

How do you have the Touch Bar show word and emoji suggestions when typing?

Expected

When typing text while using Firefox browser, the Touch Bar is expected to provide suggestions, i.e. words and emojis.

e.g. Chrome enables this feature

Actual

The Touch Bar does not provide word or emoji suggestions when using Firefox browser. This seems potentially related to the "Keyboard" setting "Touch Bar typing suggestions" that is not showing for Firefox.

Configuration

  • macOS: 11.3.1
  • Firefox: 88.0.1

I got started using Firefox a few years ago. Once I got adjusted to the different controls, I really like using it, BUT...

I have updated it three times now (the last time was on accident after ignoring the notice for a long time). Every update breaks the browser for me. I start getting Windows that don't load - the dot just bounces but the window stays blank for hours. The browser fails to load anything. On restart I get message that Firefox failed to close properly. New windows take up to 6 or 7 tries to load a link, and the same for loading into a tab.

The first couple times I updated, I followed the guidance to save favorites, dump the browser and restart from scratch, then load everything back in. While it worked, it's a PITA for a browser that updates pretty frequently, and I think routine updates should be able to load without having to spend hours troubleshooting and reloading. I'm not stupid or computer illiterate - I manage a Linux server cluster at work, but I can't manage my Firefox at home through a routine update.

Can anyone help get Firefox to load and run properly such that it works even after an update? I hate Edge, and Internet Explorer, while easy to learn is full of security holes and often DOA at most websites these days. I refuse to go Google, and I'd prefer to not learn another browser. I like Firefox, but the post-update problems are killing me.

I'm using FF88.0.1 on macOS 10.14.6

I'm a regular participant in the Microsoft Answers Community. When replying to messages there today a space appears when I press the space bar but as soon as I type the next character the space closes & the text runs together. E.g. instead of This is a sentence the text appears as Thisisasentence. If I then go back & re-insert the spaces they are retained but that is a royal pain.

This is a new behavior as of today. I have confirmed that this does not occur when using Safari nor does it occur when replying in the Apple support community.

I'd appreciate any insight on this.

Hi, I just discovered a problem setting secondary email when both primary and secondary is on the same domain, gmail.com.

Following the instructions:

Set up secondary email

The error that come up says that the secondary email must be different than my account email, but it is, the only common thing is the domain.

So this is a bug, please fix.

I have found on several occasions this year that forms I've completed can't be submitted via Firefox - noticeably forms for financial services, but not exclusively, I'm usually allowed to fill in the form but I get some sort of error when I submit. These are usually vague like 'opps, something went wrong' and several attempts will not work. However, these work smoothly on Chrome or Edge.

The first time this happened there was actual php code and variables appearing in some fields and I gave the company a pretty hard time for not making sure their stuff worked on FireFox, but I feel a bit of an old meanie for doing that now I've seen how regularly I get submission problems.

Anyone come across this and anyone found a fix?

Starting today, when I click on a video in Youtube using Firefox 88.0.1, the video will not start. When I click the start icon in the middle of the screen the page reloads and the video starts. Problem is when browsing you have to select a video and then when the video page loads you must start the video. When using the back button, you must go back two pages not one.

Until at least around 1 month ago it was possbile to open all tabs from another device's firefox. You could go to the Synced Tabs Sidebar, right-click the other device's name and click something named along the lines of "open all tabs".

When I tried to do this today, I noticed that the "normal" way to the Sync-menu via |||\ symbol doesn't work anymore and I at least found out that I could get there using via the firefox account. I can send a (single) tab to another device and I can see the list of the sync'ed tabs of a computer, but it is no longer possible to right-click that device's name and thereby getting to the "open all tabs" option.

After this was - seemingly? - patched out, is there any other way left to do this or was there any new way implemented?

thx
