I just added a new Firefox installation to my Firefox account. I did so by clicking on sync settings, in order to have a chance to modify the settings before sync started. As expected, I was first prompted to sign in to my Firefox account. I was then invited to install Firefox on my smartphone, which doesn't interest me. Since I found no option to dismiss this completely, I clicked on "remind me later". Then, instead of opening Sync settings as I expected, Firefox began to sync immediately. In fact the activity blocked Firefox for a while, preventing me from accessing sync settings at all. After getting into the settings, I disabled some things in sync settings, but don't know what undesired "cross-fertilization" may have already occurred between my Firefox installations. How can I find out? How can I get control of Firefox's syncing behaviour? There is a prominent "Sync now" button in the sync settings, but this only makes sense to me if there is some way to stop automatic syncing and make Firefox wait for me to click the button. How can I suspend automatic sync and make Firefox wait for a manual sync command?

Hello dear supporters,

Since a few Days I cannot reach any website. Or sometimes Websites Doesn’t load completely and get stucked. Or sometimes there is a reduced layout loading on the websites I want to go to _ more like in html mode.

different errores occur Browsing with Firefox:

SSL_ERROR_HANDSHAKE_FAILURE_ALERT SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_READ The wlan connection is stable - as in can Go in the Internet with other devices.

And the problem also occurs with other browers . Additional Info: (Also the Connection to the email servers communicates a problem with SSL: Failed to send the message. SSL has received an entry with invalid message authentication code. The settings for smtp.1and1.de must be corrected. ... then Every once in a while I can send messages )

Could you please help me to fix the problem with Firefox as I am in home office, like many of us, and working gets difficult like this.

Thank you Silvia

Is there some way to pass POST data when navigating between containers? As someone who uses searX as their search engine, which uses POST requests to perform searches, it is very inconvenient that I cannot make searches when the site that I'm searching from is in one container and the search engine I'm using is set to open in a different container, as the data containing my search request does not actually get passed.

Hello everyone, 3 weeks ago I have started to face random crashes and no responding at all from my browser. Even though I have the latest version of Firefox but nothing seems to work well and I don't know the reason since it doesn't give me crash reports. In addition I didn't install any suspicious add-ons or external plugins since the problem had accrued.

Thanks in advance.

I've noticed after an update ( Win) that Firefox will not remove non of the existing maps( installed ver).

But however when I do a update in Win ( still have Win 7) I go to Control panel->Programs->Add/remove programs. And do an removal via win add/removal tool.

But as I assumes that Firefox will create a library in win registery. But my point is if I can manualy delete the exsisting maps( librarys). Or Do I have to make a complete formating of my HDD?

But when I install Firefox at my Pc I have a separate partition at my HDD,to wich I install Firefox. Just in case not to infect or get rid of my existing installed programs. For an ex at my C:/ I only have installed my OS (Win)+sometimes Office.

Hey,

I've been having a problem for the past few weeks that has persisted across updates and across editions (stable, nightly, developer edition etc.). When trying to open a file picker either for uploading a file on a website or for using "save as..." in context menu nothing happens.

I've launched it via console to check for any possible errors and tried in safe mode but it just fails silently.

Another thing I've tried is running Firefox with "GTK_USE_PORTAL=1" and installing xdg-desktop-portal & xdg-desktop-portal-kde to make Firefox use KDialog but same problem.

Drag and drop still works fine and the issue is limited to Firefox, other browsers open file dialogs normally.

Thank you very much for your help in advance!

Hi, I use office 365 (as an example) on two computers. On one all is fine .. if I double click on an email in my outlook inbox the popup windows opens in foreground. On another computer I have (both have all firefox updates installed) popups open behind the browser - so I actually don't see that anything has happened.

I tried restartig FF without addons. I tried using another user container. I searched the net but only found tipps that were quite old.

Anyone have an idea what I can do to prevent windows from opening behind the browser?

85.0.2 (but happened before that version too).

Firefox's Picture-in-Picture mode allows you to watch recordings while riding the web. Firefox's Picture-in-Picture mode allows you to pop recordings out of their page to turn into a consistently on-top gliding window. It implies that you can at the same time peruse different pages while watching a video. Here, we're demonstrating how to empower and utilize Picture-in-Picture mode on Firefox.

What Is Picture-in-Picture Mode?

Picture-in-Picture mode is a Firefox include that has been accessible for Windows since adaptation 71, and for macOS and Linux since variant 72.

When observing most recordings, you can tap the Picture-in-Picture symbol to pop the video out of the site page. That video at that point turns into its own skimming window, which you can resize and move anyplace on your screen, and it'll generally stay on top. You can even control the video playback without expecting to explore back to the first page.

Step by step instructions to Enable Picture-in-Picture Mode

Picture-in-Picture mode is a standard Firefox highlight that is empowered naturally. Nonetheless, you can shroud the symbol that enacts it, so adhere to these directions to check its status:

  • Snap the Menu Button (three even lines).
  • Snap Options.
  • Underneath Browsing, guarantee that Enable picture-in-picture video controls is checked.

Step by step instructions to Use Picture-in-Picture Mode

  • To utilize Picture-in-Picture mode, drift over a video and snap the Picture-in-Picture symbol. It would seem that two square shapes on top of one another. This will pop the video out from the page.
  • On the other hand, you can right-tap the video to open the setting menu. From here, click Picture-in-Picture. A few sites like YouTube supersede the Firefox setting menu, so you should right-click twice to get to it (don't right-tap on a menu thing or it will not work)
  • You can likewise press Ctrl + Shift + ] and Firefox will dispatch the most significant video on the page into Picture-in-Picture.
  • There are a few recordings that Picture-in-Picture mode isn't accessible for. This incorporates those without a sound track and those that are excessively little or short. For instance, loads of recordings on Twitter fall into this class.
  • When utilizing Picture-in-Picture mode, you can snap and delay the video to move it anyplace on your screen. Additionally, snap and drag the sides of the video to resize it. To go full screen, double tap the video.
  • Float over the video, and you will see three symbols. The upper right X symbol stops and shuts the Picture-in-Picture video. Then again, the Picture-in-Picture symbol will keep the video playing and return you to the first website page.
