Hi folks,

Since the last 109.0 update I've noticed a strange behavior with Firefox.

Sometimes after watching a video stream in full screen, my toolbar changes and moves all my customized icons / extensions etc. into this "more tools" drop down menu. I can reproduce this by repeatedly switching from full screen to the normal view

This is so annoying and frustrating.

Does anyone know how I can fix this?

I have just logged in anew. Firefox has offered to create a new “profile”. I chose a profile name I am sure I have used before. Firefox claims a user (profile) by that name “already exists”. How may I “re-unite with my lost self”? I refuse to use Firefox again until a logical and reasonable login process is established. I shall delete what seems to be a “new account” and use other browsers.

Apple's built in spell checker on the Mac is unparalleled. Not only does it integrate with the native dictionary, it also automatically detects and switches languages as you type. Right-clicking on an unfamiliar word brings up the "look up" option which fins the word in the dictionary. It's furthermore smart enough to detect misspelled words which are correct words in another language. I don't know how apple achieved this, it's remarkable.

Anyway, Firefox displaces this functionality on the mac with their own dictionary, which although good, is not as good as the native spell checking and dictionary.

Is there a way to enable the native dictionary for Firefox on the Mac?

Is there a way for the new window animation in Firefox for Mac to be disabled?

Safari does not do this, but firefox has a... ~100ms animation for new windows that's extremely frustrating for those of us who do not use tabs (Apple's Exposé/Mission Control obsoletes them).

I haven't found a configuration in about:config, although I've been able to disable a few others.

Reference #18.62052017.1660274157.1f6107dd Other sites like my banking site I can access freely on Edge but cannot on Firefox. No error message in that case, just says error try again. All this started after I loaded Norton. I have had them look at the system, and they have, but also point out that it is not them as I can access the site from Edge. I have looked at the help page and their are thousands of people with the same query but no fixes! As a long term supporter of Firefox I am disappointed that I now have to use Edge to do most of my business. HELP

Greetings...

I am using Windows 10 / Firefox v109.0.

I use the Screenshot feature virtually every day and find its availability extremely valuable. Unfortunately, I have noticed that the Screenshot feature appears not to work when I am on the HomeDepot website. While the "scissors" icon appears at the customary upper right location, when I select it, nothing happens. Multiple clicks on the scissors icon - nothing happens. Regardless of the webpage that I am viewing on the HomeDepot website, I am unable to create a screen capture of the webpage contents.

The above has been the case for some time now, so it's not specifically associated with my current version of Firefox. I have experienced this same problem when visiting the Lowes.com website. However, I have used other e-commerce websites (Staples, Best Buy, Wegmans, etc.) and have been able to use the Screenshot feature without difficulty.

Any idea why the Screenshot feature does not work on select websites, such as I have described above? Please advise. Thank you!

I have been using Firefox for many years. Suddenly I cannot get any sound from videos in Facebook, YouTube or anywhere. The settings in Privacy --> Permissions --> Autoplay are set to "Allow Audio and Video". There is nothing wrong with the computer as I can play videos and sound files on it with no problem. Sound is no problem on Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge. It is just Firefox that after years of use the sound as stopped working. Can anybody help?

I had two Firefox windows open in the past hour, and accidentally closed the one I was using, and then closed the other as well to try to tidy the situation without realizing I could only access the most recent closure. Unfortunately, Firefox will only open the most recent session to be closed, so I can't access the 30+ folders that i need to restore from the first window. I am a non-technical person currently in hospital. Can anyone help?

Hello,

I need your help: how can I set navigation bar without any item (hide all items of this bar)? I need that this bar appears but empty. The reason is that I want to restrict options in Firefox (for all users) but let it be allowed open windows pop-up.

I got remove the menu button that is to the right of the whole (hamburger type), the forward and backward buttons that are to the left of the whole (which are the arrows to the right and to the left), the detention (which is the cross), etc. I did this with commands in userChrome.css file

But what I can't hide is the item where the url's are placed (search box). I just need to hide the search box. I wrote " #nav-bar { visibility: collapse !important ; } " in userChrome.css , and then all navigation bar is hidden but don't get windows of pop-up that I need them to appear.

The version of Firefox that I have is 108.0.1 (64 bits).

Could you help me, please? It's a little urgent. Thanks!!

I wondered several times why firefox recovers old tabs when it chrashed. now i see that in my profile folder/sessionstore-backups the file recovery.jsonlz4 is some days old (while i was using firefox in the meantime very often) and does not update frequently as requested by about:config browser.sessionstore.interval = 15000 (15s). - this folder or the files are not locked. i can delete/rename them, they are not re-created - there is no file sessionstore.* in the main folder of firefox profile while running firefox - i am using 102.4.0esr (32-Bit) on a company PC (could there be any restrictions?) - the file previous.jsonlz4 seems to be created correctly when firefox is closed normal (which is not my usecase, i want to restore up to date tabs after crashes) - i am not using a private window

do you have any idea?

Hi

Received following error when trying to load openai.com.

"The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to openai.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

This web page loads fine when connecting directly to server (using ctrl+shift+r).

Already cleared web cache, individual cookies for the web site, history-but error remains!

Some sites offer separate links for viewing and downloading. (I'm specifically interested in PDF files, but I think this question is more general.) I'm not sure how this distinction is communicated to Firefox—I'm guessing in the MIME type? But regardless of the mechanism, Firefox does not seem to offer any obvious settings that distinguish between the two cases. Are there ways to distinguish in less obvious places, such as about:config?

As a specific example: currently on a certain site when I click "View" the PDF is displayed in Firefox, and when I click "Download" the PDF is both placed in my Downloads folder and displayed in Firefox. I would prefer that the "Download" link only cause the download, and not cause the display. How can I change this without breaking the "View" links?
