I've been using a third party window manager on iOS and have shortcuts assigned to resize and reposition windows. Recently I've noticed that the behavior for Firefox is significantly different and my initial guess is that something in Firefox is intercepting my shortcuts and resizing my windows instead allowing my window manager to handle it. For reference, the shortcuts I have for my third party window manager are listed below and result in different behavior when focused on Firefox compared to other applications:

  • Position window left: `Cmd + Ctrl + H`
  • Position window right: `Cmd + Ctrl + L`
  • Position window center: `Cmd + Ctrl + M`

Is there a way to disable this?

I am trying to add a new email address to my account so I can change the original one because it has been compromised. When i put in the new email I'm told there's "account already exists" I have no awareness of this account and can't find any reference to it in my paperwork. The new email address I want to change to is safe and secure. If in the past I did get a firefox account using the disputed email, How do I go about finding it? I'm using version 121.0.1

Hey,

I'm looking for a shortcut/hotkey to focus the page.

The best I found is "Move to Next Frame", which is F6. When having the URL bar as focus, and no bookmark bar open, this will focus the page.

I have two questions here: - Is there a better way to focus the page? - If not, how can I remap F6 to a more usable hotkey?

I have found some threads with workaround like tabbing 2-3 times until the page is in focus. I'm looking for a single shortcut, having to press a key multiple times kinda defeats the purpose of a shortcut.

I have found information on how to remap hotkeys with either extensions or autoconfig, but I can't find which key I have to change. Extensions don't seem to include this key.

For autoconfig, I looked through view-source:chrome://browser/content/browser.xhtml and the Browser Toolbox to find this shortcut, but with no success. Maybe I looked at the wrong spot, maybe not all shortcuts are listed there?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Dear Forum,

The AARP website hasn't let me log in for a few weeks. It gives the following message, and I don't know how to fix it. I looked in Firefox preferences, and AARP has all of its cookies listed. I'm not a bot, moving too quickly. I couldn't figure out whether Firefox allowed Javascript. Here is the message (but I deleted my IP and Proxy IP):

I have restored my Windows 10 Home (64), deleting all previous installed apps during the process. Hereafter Firefox and Thunderbird are downloaded and installed.

I did not find the 2 Apps in the usual program folder, and they do not appear in START->ALL APPS.

Searching my computer, I found Firefox and Thunderbird in these locations: Firefox: C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Mozilla.Firefox_121.0.1.0_x64__n80bbvh6b1yt2\VFS\ProgramFiles\Firefox Package Root Thunderbird: "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\MozillaThunderbird.MZLA_115.6.0.0_x64__h5892qc0xkpca\VFS\ProgramFiles\MZLA Package Root\thunderbird.exe"

My question: is this the usual place or have I mixed things up during installation ?

As said in title. I like to drag links/youtube videos to new tabs instead of right clicking/middle click. The problem with this is that these tabs autoplay after a short amount of time without me switching to them, whereas right click/middle click do not (since I have autoplay on unfocused tabs blocked). This problem persists in troubleshoot mode.

I have tried the site-specific autoplay permissions, but I still want to keep the 'switching focus to new tab autoplays content', and I do not want to have to press play if I use firefox's site-specific blocked autoplay.

Hi,

WSJ opinion pages won't load fully on Firefox. The same webpage works on other browsers. This has been a recurring issue ever since I switched over to Firefox. It's the main reason why I still keep Google Chrome around.

I've tried updating to the newest version of Firefox and also iOS. Also, clearing my cache/cookies works sometimes but the problem keeps coming back.

I am having a significant issue with firefox draining my battery. I used chrome up until the new year and then switched over to firefox from chrome. Overall I love firefox so much more. The format is way more pleasing. I love how it easily signs me back into everything, BUT IT DRAINS MY COMPUTER SO MUCH. Like i used to have an 8hour + battery span my laptop neverrr died. Now I get through MAX 2 hours of full use before needing to charge, and maybe 4 hours just having it at school but not using it.

I thought my dell suddenly started crashing, ran all these tests, and then I realized the only change was that I had started using Firefox... So sad I think I am going to have to leave it.

I read a lot of articles and did everything suggested. my graphics is webreader , i turned on all the suggested features, i have 2 extensions , the only thing I could maybe think of was that I use an animated theme so maybe that was killing the battery, but like if I can't use my theme than whats the point.
