I have a fresh install of Debian 12.5, which came with Firefox 115.7.0esr. Firefox is inconsistent in following the settings I put in. For example, I specified the download folder, but it still automatically saved to the original default folder. But when I clicked to ask me before downloading, it does! And it gives me the 1st option to save the the folder I specified. But if I uncheck the "ask me" button, it goes back to putting downloads in my home directory, which I don't want. Another example is I've set it to "open previous windows and tabs on startup", but it doesn't. When I close Firefox with several tabs open, the next time I start it I have just the home tab. Yet when I look in "settings" it still says it's supposed to be opening my previous tabs. This is more annoying than the download issue. How can I get Firefox to follow the settings, which ARE being saved?

Hello,

Firefox YouTube HDR mode works in Full Screen Mode (FSM), Picture in Picture (PiP), but not in normal Windowed mode (WiM). This bug appeared in around Q3-Q4 2023, before that the YouTube HDR mode was available in FSM, PiP and WiM mode.

In Safari the YouTube HDR content works in FSM, PiP and WiM mode.

Firefox 115.7.0esr (64-bit) macOS Sonoma 14.3 ( I updated the system from macOS 13 in the last 2 weeks ) MacBook Pro 14", 2021 w/ Apple M1 Pro (1000 nits sustained full screen, 1600 nits peak)

This issue exists in all HDR videos what I tested on YouTube.

My Norton virus detection software regularly finds viruses and Trojan horses in the directory: C:\program files\Mozilla Firefox Why?

It seem to happen after using Facebook or more often Craigslist. I tried putting a read only attribute on this directory, but it still happens.

Norton then requires a reboot. So it is a hassle.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what is going on?

Tab bar sharing system color in Windows 10 (Firefox CSS)

Hello,

In Windows 10 and 11, Firefox's tab bar and other elements that may be transparent render in Windows 10 using some sort of uDWM method (speculation, I could be wrong?) rather than the traditional win32 window frame as you can see with the title bar toggled on. This leads to elements like the tab bar being black or white, depending on your theme unless you have specified otherwise in your chrome. Highlighted yellow below is my problem area.


In my CSS code, I am trying to extend the system color to be drawn to the tab bar (and in this instance, the address bar as well,) but I can't find any way to be able to do this. I have found forums that say to add -moz:appearance -moz-windows-glass, but this completely removes the window border and leaves the Firefox window unresponsive to controls. The only way to close it is if you close it through the taskbar or task manager.


Note that I am aware of .titlebar-color{color: AccentColorText; background-color: AccentColor}, but that's not what I am going for here. That still draws using Windows 10 modern UI. Windows 7 on ESR 115 or unofficially on 116 still draw with Windows Aero in all parts of this CSS code that are black (highligted yellow below.)


I can attach my CSS code if need be.


Thanks for any help!

When I clicked troubleshooting mode FF unexpectedly closed my Private browsing session and all the tabs. How do I reopen them?

I did not expect FF to close on me like that. I thought that as I was in a private browsing session FF would have warned me that it was about to close had it been necessary.

I'm guessing that my open tabs have been lost permanently because you didn't warn me and that all that time I spent is now wasted.

Life is really simple except that other people make it problematic.

Using v115.7 in debian 12.

I prefer to open pdf files with the default viewer in the operating system, not on a firefox browser tab. I have gone into settings->general->applications and configured selected "Use system default application" for PDF files. If I click on a pdf file it downloads to my Downloads folder, which is the usual and preferred behaviour. If I click the downloaded files icon on firefox's toolbar, I see the file I downloaded, all good. If I open the folder with all downloaded files, and click on the file, it opens in the OS's default viewer, all good. On the other hand, if I click on the downloaded files icon on firefox's toolbar and simply select the downloaded file from the displayed list, it opens on a firefox browser tab. This is driving me bananas. How do I configure firefox to launch the default system application instead?

Om Macos 12.7.3 Monterey using FF 115.7.0esr (64-bit). Been using FF since God knows when. All well. But a couple of months ago windows or tabs are crashing. When I'm hitting a link and either holding Cmnd or right click "open in new tab" in order to get the linked page in new tab, the tab/window I'm using shuts down. Poof.
