I'm not looking for direct assistance, this is feedback. The feedback submission from within the browser is disabled by Mozilla.

When I have FF (85.0.2 x64, Win10) set to use a toolbar density of "Touch", this works for the toolbars themselves, but not the Bookmarks menu. See the attached screenshot. You can see that the toolbar elements are nicely spaced to make it easier for fingers and finger-simulating stilii, but the bookmarks menu is still densely packed.

The feedback is to have the toolbar spacing apply to the bookmarks menu too.

I have tried refreshing it and it will not restart but when I click on it to restart it saying that it's already running. Sure enough I open task manager and it's running. If I stop it there it just does the same when restarted. Like ground hog day !

For controlling the behavior when openning an external link (from a different program) there is `browser.link.open_newwindow.override.external`. It can be configured to always open a new window, or always open a new tab in the last active window.

However, I use multiple virtual desktops on linux and when I open a link (from anywhere, really), I'd like it to be opened on the current virtual desktop but also in an existing window if there is one. It should almost be as if the firefox on each virtual desktop behaves independently for this purpose though I don't think actually doing that (one firefox instance per virtual desktop) would be a solution since I do need to move tabs/windows around fairly often as well.

Is there a way to do that with some settings?

I am on FF 78.7.1esr on windows 10 and since a few weeks the fonts on some websites look bad as shown in the uploaded images. Even the text box where I am typing in this question right now does not show a clear font. I have not installed any new FF extension recently but there have been windows updates.

I did find some rather old information about blurry fonts related to shockwave flash content and I disabled the option to "Block dangerous and intrusive Flash content" but this did not really solve the issue. (I still need flash for learning content so I did not uninstall it but created a mms.cfg file as recommended by adobe).

Have there been recent changes to FF font rendering? I did not see the problem before January 2021.

Hi!

I am on macOS Catalina and am trying to change the copy-paste combination on my keyboard from Command+C and Command+V to Control+C and Control+V, respectively.

Under Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts, I already have a copy-paste setting for 'All Applications', and it works on ALL applications I tested with (Google Chrome, Safari, Telegram, terminal emulators, etc.), EXCEPT on Firefox.

So then I tried to add a custom setting for Firefox.app. Copy works: I can CTRL+C in a firefox page and CTRL+V on another app. BUT CTRL+V does not work in Firefox itself -- the previous shortcut Command+V is what still works.

What should I do so that:

  1. Numbered list itemFirefox will use the app shortcuts for 'All Applications' instead of having its own configuration (less important)
  2. Bulleted list itemCTRL+V would work on Firefox? (more important)

My Firefox version is 85.0.2

Thanks in advance.

++

Edit, additional info:

I followed the list of valid command names at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/keyboard-shortcuts-perform-firefox-tasks-quickly?redirectslug=Keyboard+shortcuts&redirectlocale=en-US#w_bookmarks. Adding some of them to 'App Shortcut' works (such as New Tab, Close Tab, and Bookmark This Page), and some of them don't (such as Find in This Page and Find in This Page).

Hello,

I love Mozilla Firefox thus am asking this.

Why is graphics performance worse in Firefox than it is on Microsoft's Edge and Google's Chorme browser?

Is it a matter of settings or what?

I have a AMD Ryzen 5 3400GE APU which is very capable of decoding 4k@60 VP9, but when I try watching Youtube videos in this video settings on Firefox, the frame reproduction isn't smooth. I don't have that problem with Chrome and/or Edge.

The video in question is the following:

PS: not sure why but some 4k@60 VP9 videos on Youtube lag more than others.

Hello,

This issue seems somewhat unique. Using Firefox on 85.0.1 64-bit (but existed for a while) on Ubuntu 20. My laptop is a dell Inspiron with an nvidia GeForce MX250 and driver version 450.102.04 (but, again, this problem existed on earlier drivers). I dual boot Windows 10 on this laptop and use firefox there, but do not have any issues there.

Sometimes Firefox will just start unloading pieces of the web page. It's not that the tab is crashing, the parts just start visibly disappearing, and I can see other applications or my wallpaper behind it. When a youtube video is playing, the sound will keep going (without issue) even after the video stops and eventually disappears. I can reproduce this problem by having a youtube video playing in a tab, closing my laptop to idle it, and reopening it and logging back in. Doing so ensures this issue happens immediately, but the issue will still occur at other times, with or without a youtube video playing (that's just what I use to test the issue as per my example given).

Going through existing articles, I followed the steps in this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1275189 since my issue seemed similar to theirs. Restarting Firefox in safe mode did indeed stop the issue! Then, I followed the steps to diagnose if it was an extension or hardware acceleration. (I use the default theme so that's not the issue.)

Disabling hardware acceleration didn't solve the problem. Okay, maybe it's not that, I'll turn off the (only) extension I have... And that didn't work either. I turned off hardware acceleration and my extensions, and the issue is still being produced.

So, I'm trying to understand, if safe mode only deactivates extensions, themes and hardware acceleration, why does the issue go away in safe mode but persist in normal mode with all extensions and hardware acceleration turned off on the default theme?

Attached are images of the "unloading" issue. Any help would be appreciated.
