Upgraded to a new Firefox version. Lost the ability to separate the Homepage from New Window behaviour. Is there no way to specify these two things separately? It seemed to be working fine when I first upgraded, but in the options it shows everything as "Blank Page", so if I want to change my homepage URLs, I have to set it to that and if I do that, it undoes the separation of the homepage and new windows and I have to go set it again in about:config...? One of my most used features was this separation of the Homepage with New Windows, gave me a lot of control.

Hello, I'm reposting this question in better topic. After loading Firefox to 87.0 Now when I click on a "contact" button from a site I get 'courrier' from Microsoft. How can I get my xxx@free.fr address (zimbra mail) instead. Help from mozilla doesn't help me! Years ago the same problem was solved with a button on the first opening of the mail box.

Upgraded from 60.9ESR to 78.8ESR Tons of empty white space being wasted in my address bar drop down, and the preferences+addons pages now only occupy half the screen so I have to scroll more to see all my options, click to fully read text boxes and open sub-menus?!

How can I make these things more compact? The Customize options don't affect them, though I've changed the "blow-up" address bar behaviour using policies.json.

Hi folks!

I have an issue with my Firefoxes, but I am not sure if it is a bug or a feature.

Whenever I click on a link inside an app, e-mail or whatever, Firefox opens up with the usual startpage in the background and the linked page in the front. Is that normal behaviour? I would rather have Firefox open 1 window with the link I clicked on and without an additional window for the generic Firefox startpage.

I am also using the Multi-Account container addon, but experiencing the same behavious without that addon.

Thanks for your insights :). Henning

Hi i would like to know how i can change the font size of my Firefox Menu.

i already change the size of the layout whit "layout.css.devPixelsPerPx" but it didn´t change the font size of the tabs or the menu. i did some research and found the userCrome.css technique to change some fonts sizes. i already change the font size of the address bar, PopMenu and tabs. But when it comes to the Main Menu, and bookmarks the font still in the same size. i also try changing the fonts size on preferences but nothing has been working.

i guess there must be a simple command line to add in the userCrome.css file to fix this but i can find it.

if some of you can help me i will appreciate very much.

i am working on a linux machine. thank you very much

Might I make a suggestion as to Allow a control to enable you to chose what Device is active for Voice input and other input options? My computer has more than one attached, and it keeps defaulting to another microphone. So I'd hope that eventually firefox will allow manual control switching for such device inputs.

Hi,

I have been using MS multiple desktop feature to separate my tasks to simplify work flow. For example Desktop 1 = Finance Desktop 2 = Coding etc.

In each desktop I had multiple tabs opened related to the subject

I noticed that Firefox only remembers the tabs last opened and not the ones opened in that specific desktop.

Anyway to make it so that Firefox remembers the tabs opened in the specific desktop assigned to it?

Thank you.

I'm working on an addon to automate taking screenshots of lecture slides. I'm using a canvas object to capture and save the file blobs and JSZip to zip everything together and download. But JSZip keeps throuhing the `unsupported file type` error. Even though blobs are supported.

Here's the relevant code I'm using Github File

I've submitted an issue to the maintainer which has some more debugging info. The script in the addon_context has some very quantum behaviour and changes output every time I console.log Github Issue

I'm wondering if there might be a problem on my end, with the way I'm generating and processing the blobs. The same code works in chromium based browser, I'm confused as to what Firefox does differently. Any help would be appreciated.
