On this page with an Atari emulator, I am unable to use its controls that use the Alt key, such as Alt+P to pause.

It works with another browser, or with a fresh profile.

I've tried disabling add-ons and trying it again, but it fails even after disabling each of them. It also doesn't even work in troubleshooting mode, and that seems kinda odd?

It may be some modified settings in my Firefox profile? Though if it is, I don't know what settings, nor how to fix it. What sorts of settings are retained even in troubleshooting mode?

I use a VPN at work for accessing some internal domains. Until last week I was able to reach them fine in Firefox, then it wasn't work when I logged in on Tuesday. What happens now is the tab seems to wait for a bit, then it times out with an error that it wasn't able to connect. Is there someway to fix this?

I'm able to reach these domains through other means like chrome browser (which I'm using as a workaround) or git.

I use the bookmark bar very heavily and my workflow was to just "drag" the tab with the mouse to folder in the bookmark bar, which would unfold and I drop the tab/bookmark in the desired sub-folder.

This worked really well for me, and was fast.

Recently, this stopped working. I can still drop a bookmark in one of the main folders in the bookmark bar. But not in any sub-folder, since the main folder closes as soon as I move the mouse inside it. It is also not possible anymore to move the already-saved bookmarks around via drag&drop.

I've always used Firefox's "set as desktop background" to change my desktop picture on Linux Mint. Recently (after update to Mint 20?), it hasn't been working. I'm not sure it was when I updated to Mint 20, it may also have quit working after I used Pix to set the desktop background?

When I select "set as desktop background" in Firefox, nothing happens. There is no error message. I can still change the background using Pix, but that requires saving the picture from Firefox, opening it in Pix, and then setting it to the desktop. It would be nice if I could do it directly from FF again.

HI! I'm using Firefox 98 on Linux Ubuntu 20.04. after the last update I found several settings changed and I had to reset them, but there is one setting I can't manage. In the download preferences I set all the Microsoft Excel entries to "Always ask", but every time that I try to see an Excel file (no download, just open with ...), this is automatically downloaded. I definitively don't want to download it. How can I change this behavior? P.S.: I realized right now that there is the same problem with .docx files and I don't know how many others file types.

I have tried on windows and on linux, and the same thing happens for both. I don't get the plugins i should have. I want to try and enable java, but its not even appearing in the first place. My profile directory is all messed up as well. I don't have a pluginreg.dat, my extensions.sqlite is an extensions.json. I have been reading all the forums but they mention stuff about the files in the profile, but I don't have those files.

I'm having an issue where Firefox (Linux, 96.0.3) will crash after it's been running for a while but no crash report is generated. This is on an older Intel NUC with 2GB RAM running Clear Linux and intended to be used as a digital sign. No other applications are running. There is only a single tab loading a single page from localhost. No extensions are installed. The page is a simple layout using CSS grid. Javascript is used to create a slider with four slides, to cycle through a series of videos hosted locally, and periodically check for content updates. Below is the JS in it's entirety.

My feeling is that it's a memory issue, possibly to do with the video playlist, but I've been monitoring memory usage via about:performance and the tab with the sign has never used more than about 5MB. I've also been monitoring the system resources via htop and I've never seen it go higher than about 1000MB. How can I track down this issue?

Thanks in advance!

I cannot remove all cookies on shutdown. I wish to ignore white list, or any other limitation, and automatically remove ALL cookies so that, on my next start-up, there is NO memory space taken up with cookies.

If necessary, I will be pleased to have all whitelist contents deleted on each shut-down.

I do want to keep browse history and have past windows open automatically. This question is only about cookies.

I have set up the HISTORY section of Setup to delete all cookies, but no joy.

I am running Firefox 97.0(64-bit) on Ubuntu-Mate 20.04.

Please tell me how I can do this automatically.

Got sick and tired of having to enter payment card info every time, so I decided to RTFM and follow instructions. I worked my way thru all the instructions on found on the forum pages, and was entering the information via about:config, and got to the popup where I was asked to confirm, and clicked the button, then clicked it harder, but nothing happened.

My guess is that my Firefox and/or my Leap15.3 installation has left some file permission read-only and Firefox is unable to save this bit of data, but I really don't want to run Firefox as root. I can say more, but I see there are more boxes to fill.

So, I included a screenshot of what I hope will be the useful part of my config file.

I'm trying to go to an address on my network for my IP cameras. http://192.168.50.65 (for example), and Firefox keeps changing it https! Then of course, it won't connect. How do I stop this? I hate having to start Chrome or Opera to manage these local addresses.

(Ubuntu 20.10 NUC 7I5 32 gig memory) I had (firefox) version 83.02 installed and working.

Today I turned on the machine, loaded Firefox and.....

It sort of crashed. I selected "reload Firefox" and things went a bit weird.

Today is 24 Dec 2020. I have had the machine on a few times since 15 Dec 2020.

Firefox restarted and YUCK! it was horrible! I had the DARK theme chosen and somehow it restarted in the other one which is ..... not dark.

The cursor is annoying at times when you are typing and I try to ignore it as much as possible, but since that which just happened I noticed the cursor is now changing its look as I move around a web page.

Looking at the release notes there is no mention of this being done.

I can't find anything in the settings/preferences/config/what ever to control the cursor. But that aside: this didn't used to happen. (No big. Just mentioning it)

If I move over a link the cursor changes from what it is to a hand (left pointing).

Is this now normal?

I installed Lorex security cameras recently. I can access the DVR support box from Firefox and do admin stuff, but I can see no images from the cameras. Instead of images I get the message:

  Your browser does not support this function!

This appears in the sub-window that the current image should appear in. I have installed ffmpeg and gstreamer (libav, ugly and unrar) - all to no avail. I am running Fedora 33 currently patched fully (yesterday).

I find it hard to believe that these images cannot be seen in Firefox. What am I doing wrong????

I am dealing with a government website. All of the government forms are available as PDFs on this website. However if I try to download a form the site looks at the browser description and does not see Adobe Acrobat installed on my system, so it returns a text document telling me to install Adobe Acrobat release 8 or higher. I cannot install Adobe Acrobat because Adobe does not support Linux. I don't need to install Adobe because Firefox, Chrome, and every other browser on the market has builtin support for PDF. How do I customize Firefox to LIE to the website and say that Adobe Acrobat is installed?

Hi.

Why would you remove FTP? It's not obsolete, I use it for work, and a good one third of my browsing is easily ftp sites such as NetBSD.org, ftp.gnu.org and others. FTP is still used heavily.

I really really dislike that it's gone. I'd gladly spend 30-40$ a year for a paid version.

I've been using you guys back to Mozilla, Firebird, Netscape and even earlier ..possibly related was NCSA Mosaic. C'mon guys.. which Millenial decided FTP was obsolete and uncool because it was old? It's how most of the Open Source projects and distributions still move data around. :~( This is the first time since I started using Netscape/Mozilla/etc that you've ever done something I don't like. The last thing I want to do is be forced to use Chrome or some other garbage. Please.. bring it back or some sort of external module we can pay for to get browsing back. Please! I beg you. (Trying hard to be really civil and nice here ..truely baffled that it'd be removed).
