The add-on in question is FlowCrypt (flowcrypt.com). We need to have a stable, predictable origin to enable in CORS, but the add-on ID changes upon every install. Is there a way for an add-on to have a stable ID/origin? How is this accomplished?

We are using the addons.mozilla.com self-publish mechanism, where I'm having Mozilla sign each release, but then we are self-hosting a json file at https://flowcrypt.com/api/update/firefox the individual xpi fles.

Thanks a ton!

I have recently used AWS MediaConvert to create a webm video file using the VP9 codec.

This file will play for me locally using VLC and ffplay. It will also play in Chrome (either locally or from the web).

However it will not play in Firefox. Error is "Video cannot be played because the file is corrupt" and the console shows "Media resource http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/lg-watch/ff-test_fromaws.webm could not be decoded, error: Error Code: NS_ERROR_DOM_MEDIA_FATAL_ERR (0x806e0005)"

But if I encode the same file via VP9 codec using ffmpeg then the file will play perfectly in firefox.

Using mediainfo to examine the files I cannot see any difference in them. Can anyone help me understand what is preventing the AWS video from playing?

Test files:

(this is the one that won't play, encoded using AWS Mediaconvert with default settings for VP9/webm) http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/lg-watch/ff-test_fromaws.webm

(this is the one that will play, encoded using ffmpeg with default settings - -c:v libvpx-vp9 -b:v 2M) http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/lg-watch/ff-test-from_ffmpeg.webm

CTRL key loses focus in input field preventing short cuts like CTRL+C or CTRL+A on DuckDuckGo

On duckduckgo.com with Firefox 83.0 (64-bit) (Ubuntu 18.04 LTS), when I try to use short cuts CTRL+C or CTRL+A within the search field, I lose focus and whole text on the website is selected instead of the search field.

I tried a few things like using clean profile, which didn't lead to any solution. I tried other websites, where I didn't have any problem. Other keys (SHIFT, ALT) don't cause the same issue.

I tried to click only CTRL, which caused the issue.

Finally, with a hunch, I disabled the CTRL pointer location in GNOME Tweaks and the problem was gone. Somehow, something about duckduckgo.com with pointer location, focus is lost. I didn't that shouldn't happen and potentially more websites are affected by this.

Is this a bug? Or is there a problem on duckduckgo.com side?

Hi,

In firefox controle-B does toggle the visibility of the bookmarks toolbar. This is a problem because control B is used to apply bold in many text field and forum like phpBB and this configuration of firefox make it less fun to apply bold style in text fields that are based on ctrl-B to do so. We clearly can do it manually but as we are in XXIth century, a more usable and efficient solution seems worthy. Is there any trick to do so in firefox? I could not find how to change this keyboard shortcut in firefox. Did I miss something?

hi, i am using Firefox 78.5.0esr (32-bit) on my Raspberry Pi 4 (with 4GB). since the December 2020 update, Raspberry Pi OS is using PulseAudio as top overlay for ALSA, and Firefox 78.5.0esr does not play audio for some videos anymore.

the maintainers of Raspberry Pi OS told me that it is not an issue of them, it must be an issue of Firefox. they told, it is maybe an issue related to bug #1422073: no audio unless pulseaudio is already running but none of the suggestions there helped me.

here a link to a video that does not play audio in firefox, but play audio in chromium browser. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Wrc4fHSCpw

i, tried to clean cache, reset preferences, removed add-ons, made a new clean installation on a new clean system, but nothing helped. all the time the same behavior - some videos does not play with audio in firefox, others do.

Raspberry Pi OS is an 32-bit opperating system for Raspberry Pi that has an ARM cpu, for those who don't know, what i am talking from. https://www.raspberrypi.org https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=293746

Per gli utenti di lingua italiana: Firefox 84.0 per Ubuntu 18.04.5 Lts non carica più il modulo della chiavetta Infocert - Lextel che consente di firmare e di autenticarsi presso alcuni siti abilitati al CNS. Il modulo sarebbe il 'libbit4xpki.so, che nel mio pc desktop trovo al percorso /opt/dike6/lib. Preciso che con altre applicazioni (Dikego sign, Firma4NG, ed altre) la chiavetta viene riconosciuta e le funzioni di firma ed autenticazione vanno entrambe bene. Fino a ieri mattina (16 dicembre 2020) funzionava anche in Firefox. Che fare ?

How can I make the address bar dumb? Sorry. This has probably been asked hundreds of times, but the FF web site is showing me only things that promote search via the address bar. But I don't want that.

I've already done this: 'about:config' > 'keyword.enabled' = 'false' but the address bar is still dropping down search engine suggestions. How can I configure FF so that the address bar is solely an address bar (no drop-down functions)?

<rant> This, together with autocomplete (which I have disabled via settings), are the most irritating things about FF. </rant>

Note: In this problem, Safe Mode brings no Joy.

=== First print attempt File > Print Preview provokes this notice: "Print Preview Error" "An error occurred while printing"

Behind the error notice is this dialog: "Print Preview" "Title: Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode | Firefox Help" "Progress: Preparing..." [_Cancel_]

"Preparing..." never goes away.

=== Thereafter File > Print Preview doesn't work at all (no response). File > Print provokes the error notice above.

This problem has often occurred. For some reason I can't rationalize, I think Firefox is attempting to print at the same time that it's preparing the print preview (or maybe I just think that because the notice says "...while printing".

Printing (and Print Preview) in the Palemoon browser works every time.

FF version 84.0 (64-bit) running in Linux Mint 18.3 running as a VBox Guest with a Win10 Host. The print target directory is in a virtual USB drive plugged into the VM (in both the FF and the Palemoon cases).
