Having updated before then had to search for problems caused by updates, last time it was the search bar increasing in size, I would like to ask what is in store if i update to 79.0? i have version 77.0.1 64 bit.

I seem to recall reading the problem with the search bar would be more pronounced in future versions. What changes have been made in v 79?

FF 77.0.1 64 bit.

Whenever I visit any website to play music or watch videos no sound is provided. I can visit the same sites using Chrome and the all play sound. I can play music that resides on my PC without any issues. I have re-installed Firefox but to no avail - still no sound. My sound settings are not muted either in Windows, when on the various sites and within Firefox itself. I have Autoplay permissions set to allow video and audio. I am using 79.0 (64 bit) What is the problem and how do I resolve it?

In the last few days, a process called MainThread, using a lot of CPU time, has started appearing in my Ubuntu system monitor "top". I was worried that it was malware, and checked to see if it might be part of software I had recently installed. After checking with the software providers I had most recently dealt with, I didn't find any that said the MainThread process belonged to them. Then I noticed that the "firefox" process had disappeared from the system monitor. I suspect that MainThread is the new name for firefox, but I would like some confirmation of that theory. If that is the case, why change the name of the process from something recognizable to something unrecognizable? Thanks for any help you can give!

Recently switched over from Chrome and I'm liking it so far with one semi-major annoyance.

If I'm watching a YouTube (or any site) video in full screen mode, I don't see any of my Mac notifications until I exit full screen. With Chrome, those notifications continue to appear while I'm in full screen.

Is there any setting in Firefox I can enable or disable to change that behavior?

ПОМОГИТЕ Произошла проблема с переключением мультимедии,. Решил перейти с браузера Chrome на Firefox, и столкнулся следующей проблемой: Я не могу переключать музыку и видео с помощью горячих клавиш на клавиатуре, таких как F12,F11,F9, данные клавиши у меня использовались как макрос на наушниках и я в любой момент и в любом приложении, мог переключить музыку, которая играла в браузере через наушники, что было очень удобно ( также можно было и ставить на паузу видео). И вот сейчас я всё сделал и перенёс все данные, но найти решение данной проблемы не могу, тк это окошко с мультимедией просто не открывается и не работает

menubar no longer shows in a new window opened with window.open? I am running Firefox Ver. 79.0 (64-bit); Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0; on Ubuntu Bionic 18.04 I use the following javascript code in <head> to open a new window: <script> </script> The body is as follows: <body bgcolor="#F2E8DE" onLoad="nameThisWindow()">

Click <a href="javascript:openHomePage()">Open Homepage</a> to open Homepage.htm in a new Window. </body> This code will not display the menubar in the new window (HomePage). The new window opens, resizes, relocates, has scrollbars, has address bar and has the [Open menu] option to the right of the address bar. The way it should except for the menubar on my desktop computer. If I right click on [Open Menu] in the new window it shows a check mark before Menu Bar. If I uncheck it, it closes the menubar in the window that opened it (HomePageCaller). If I click on Customize in HomePage, it opens the customize window in a new Tab in HomePageCaller. If I open a link in HomePage with "Open Link in New Tab" it opens the link in HomePageCaller. If I open a link in HomePage with "Open Link in New Window" it opens the new window with a menubar like it should. I have opened about:config to change all nine of the "dom.disable_window_open" options to "false" and restarted the computer. This did not change anything? I have removed all content from the<head> except the <title> in the new window page. I have removed all content from the <body> except a line that says it is the new window. All to no avail. Thank you for any help someone can provide, Rob

Hi. Here's how it happened. I've using FF portable for a long time. I recently updated from v.69.0.1 to v.78.0.2. But the newer version installed in a different folder and now I can run both versions. Yesterday I had the v.69 working with around 500 tabs open. Suddenly it crashed and then freezed. Luckily, I had managed to save my current working session by accessing Tab Session Manager addon. But when I go to Tab Manager Session and click to open this saved session, FF v.69 will keep freezing, no matter what I do. (Tab Session Manager has another option „Export”, but I don't know to use it or what it does.) I will quit using FF v.69. But how can I get the new v.78 to open this 500-tab session? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I am trying to keep a work (Windows 10) and home computer (Mac/Mojave) in sync for my Firefox settings. I have long been on beta update channel at home (now 80.0b3) but work machine is locked down to release version only (not sure which one that is).

I get the following error when I try to sync or open a release channel version of Firefox

"You've launched an older version of Firefox.

Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this version of Firefox."

This error dialog offers no options for 'override'.

I need my current user profile to work across platforms and on release channel. I have customizations that I cannot recreate because FF made it too hard to find out how to recreated long-ago and necessary modifications (like killing that bleeping 'throbbing' tab slider that I cannot cope with....and others I don't even know how to describe.

I don't care about bookmarks and browsing history--I never save history and I know how to export, save, and reimport bookmarks.

I care only about my about:config, userchrome and prefs.js and the like.

How can I get around this BUG?

And: am I the only one who thinks the throbbing slider on the loading tabs is the creation of the devil? I can't avoid getting distracted by it--the visual noise is intolerable especially in a work environment.
