Settings Page Off-Click Attrition Pet Peeve

When I am in about:preferences#general, the Find in Settings box has it's active field set up right when access to this page is provided, when I off-click to the side of that box, it does nothing about the control field which is active, highlighting stuff can make that blinking stop and hold in a static state but only clicking other control areas can I get that active field to stop blinking in the Settings box, that forced active field is a pet peeve for me on account of it starting active when the page goes up but also because it has an invisible hitbox outside the visible one, and cannot be offclicked in a casual way, I want that not to be active when that page opens and I want the hitbox reduced to the visible one and I want an offclick in the rest of the white field to deactivate the active field in the Settings box.

In my code if have <iframe src="https://www.247klondike.com/klondikeSolitaire3card.php" ></iframe> It as being treated as a relative address instead of an absolute address, other browsers have no problem with it. I et message "Firefox can’t find the file at /C:/Howard/HTML/www.247klondike.com/klondikeSolitaire3card.php.". If it makes any difference, the HTML is from my computer, not a web site.

just about everytime there's and update it corrupt my handler.json > handlers.json.corrupt. It's getting real annoying. I don't know why the whole mailto broke around version 99, but it did and I keep having to copy over an old handlers file each time this happens.

Is there a way to prevent websites from changing the URL as I simply scroll down a page?

For instance, it happens on sites that use Discourse for forums. I end up bookmarking the wrong URL if I forget to scroll back to the top of the page. I can't find an add… (read more)

For instance, it happens on sites that use Discourse for forums. I end up bookmarking the wrong URL if I forget to scroll back to the top of the page.

I can't find an addon (like Neat URL) that does anything like this, so I wondered if there was anything in about:config or such that might.

How best resolve "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead" for local services URLs?

Hi. Have searched FF help re "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead" but I don't see a clear answer that I understand!

I have my Router, NAS, etc. with local URLs (192.168...) to access their web front-ends. FireFox (FF) is set to "Enable HTTPS-Only Mode in all windows". Whenever I enter these URLs into FF it gives me the error "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead". For my router it says certificate MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT. For my NAS it says SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER. Both are very reputable companies, but clearly have not provided well prepared Certificates. I can of course "Accept the risk and continue", since I know both are valid local services. But this has to be done each time. My "acceptance" is not retained.

Is there a better, safe solution? If so, please explain in easy language for the non-technical reader.

Many thanks.

I have a basic html index page being served by Ubuntu/Apache at `https://localhost/test.html`. I have `browser.enabled.ssb` set to `true` in about config.

When I open a regular browser window (Firefox 78.0.2) I can navigate to, and load `https://localhost/test.html` no problem but when I run `firefox --profile /home/ubuntu/.mozilla/firefox/a5pwja44.default-release --ssb https://localhost/test.html` I get a connection error. (This is the same profile I'm using when I open a new browser window).

Anybody know why this doesn't work or how to fix?

Since a few days, some tunein radios like aardvark blues fm are out on tunein when firefox is used. A message appears (in french sorry) : En raison d'une récente mise à jour de Chrome, cette station n'est plus supportée par ce navigateur. Cliquez sur l'icône ci-dessous pour l'écouter via notre lecteur pop-out TuneIn In english it could be " Due to a recent chrome update, this station is not handled by this web browser"

Any help would be appreciated ! cheers.

When I zoom in (with ctrl+= for example) images are rendered with heavy interpolation / blurring. Usually I want to see individual pixels as discrete, blur-less squares.

Is there any way to change it so Firefox renders without interpolation? I am using Firefox 71.0 Operating system: Linux Mint 19.3

I was able to remove it buy downloading Malwarebytes and running it in safe mode Windows 10 desktop. Then after reboot to normal mode click reset Firefox 80. 09-06-20. had to re-add the title bar and Chrome folder in the profile to get my multi bookmarks toolbar back and tabs below search bar then since I was signed up with a Mozilla account for Firefox all the apps just loaded along with all the settings and bookmarks. I gotta hand it to ya Mozilla this is one sweet program and they have thought of everything. So don't get discouraged if you get hit sometimes because my Vipre Internet Security did not catch this since I had the check all open and closing folders Edge Protection off. Still the scan should have picked it up. It cost me $40 for a year of Malwarebytes but that's a cheep fix as far as I am concerned.

A standard behavior of any application on Ubuntu is when you mouse middle button click on any open window top title bar that application window gets lowered to underneath all other open windows ... This has worked fine on ff nightly until a few days ago ... this is even when ff setting -> Customize -> Toolbars -> Menu Bar it enabled

ff nightly 82.0a1 (2020-09-08) (64-bit)

on Ubuntu 20.04

As a long time ff user on nightly while on various releases of Ubuntu over the years this typically works OK however about once a year it stops working then somehow starts working OK

On same Ubuntu 20.04 machine all other applications are OK with this behavior
