Discord hyperlinks will no longer open when Firefox Developer Edition is selected as my default browser. They open fine in both Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Google Chrome when selected as Windows 11's default browser. When selecting my default browser it would show 2 instances of Firefox Dev but after uninstalling then reinstalling it there is only one instance in the default app list. I'm not really sure where to go from here. Maybe this is an issue with the latest version of Dev Edition or is this an issue with my Windows?

Thanks

Win 10, Developer Edition 103.0b2

This update caused everything to increase in size. Tabs & toolbars are much bigger now. Toolbar and bookmarks toolbar used to fit in the window with no overflow, now both have a lot of items in overflow.

Sites that used to fit at 100% zoom now have to be reduced to 80% or 67% to fit on-screen.

Just wondering what could cause this behavior? Settings?

Note: Browser window is fully maximized and no other program on my Win10 box has this issue.

Hello,

Whenever I use Firefox, I end up seeing popups (necessary for school) and would like to show them as tabs so I can merge them into other windows. I have tried the solutions given in: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1080255 and nothing seemed to work. Is there another way to make sure that popup windows cannot hide the toolbar and show tabs?

When I have FF open, then close all windows but still have FF active, I hit CMD-T or CMD-N to bring up a new tab or window and nothing happens. I repeat, repeat, repeat and still nothing. THEN if I click on the FF icon in my dock, all the tabs and windows appear in a cascade of windows or tabs like bam, bam, bam.....

This happens on two MacBook Pros around 2016 vintage. This is a new behavior this week.

In most of the apps running on MacOS, you have inside the standard "Window" top menu, a lot of options, like: - Minimize - Zoom - Tile Window to the Left - Tile Window to the Right - Move to <monitor name> ... ...etc

In Firefox (I'm using developer version, 103b), we only get the first 2 options (minimize and zoom). I have set shortcuts to easy move my windows around my monitors, but they don't work in Firefox, because those shortcuts relies on the presence of the menu option "Move to <monitor>".

Is it by design, or is there a way to get this option in the Window menu? I'm attaching the menu clip from Chrome and Firefox to illustrate the issue.

Long story short: windows update sneaked a restart under my nose caused me to lose all my previous session.

I'm attempting to recover the previous session.

I have backed up the unmodified session profile folder. But this profile folder was modified by the restart process obviously, as windows gave firefox "normal shutdown" command. How do I know that? The next time I opened it up, it's "brand new" without the "restore session" interface.

So my idea is to figure out if firefox keeps a track record of previous sessions EVEN IF THE SHUTDOWN WAS PROPER.

If it does, well I'll have to figure out a way to "trick" firefox to restore it. If it doesn't, well I'll have to manually restore it by sifting through the history.

I repeat, the key here is for me to find out whether or not firefox always keep a record of previous session somewhere.

So my question is, does it? Or does it purge all the previous session clean as long as the shutdown was deemed "correct"?

Whenever I sign into Firefox, all my themes, add-ons/extensions are added via Firefox Sync. That's fine, but the problem I have is that whenever I sign into any Firefox browser, an old theme I used to have that I no longer have on my account keeps coming back, and I've tried to find solutions to this issue, but none have had this kind of issue. It may be similar to issues those have had, or currently have, but I can't seem to do anything to remedy this issue.

Keep in mind that this is not a Firefox browser issue, it is an account issue.

I'd be deeply grateful to any assistance you may have for me.

Any way to force Firefox to prioritize IPv4 without disabling IPv6?

Firefox prioritizes IPv6 (even on a network with internet-accessible fd00:: address, which contradicts my currently set up prefix policies) over IPv4. Now the problem is that my IPv6 address is a tunnelbroker.net one, and while I still want to be able to access the IPv6 internet, I don't want a tunneled connection to be my default. And I don't want to disable IPv6 completely. Is there a way to force Firefox to prioritize IPv4 over IPv6?

Note: the first time when connecting to a website, the browser connects via IPv4 (like the prefix policies are supposed to work), but then it remembers that the website is accessible via IPv6, saves it into the content-prefs.sqlite file (removing the said file makes the connection fall back to IPv4 first again) and connects via IPv6 again. Is there a way to make Firefox NOT remember that in content-prefs.sqlite and still connect abiding the prefix policies?

Hi, I am having problems with mozilla. I uninstalled mozilla a few weeks ago because I sent my pc to service. When I received it, I tried to restore my profile backup using pasting the files saved in the profile folder. Since then mozilla has become unmanageable as when I open it it is as if it is always the first time, i.e. no history is saved, cookies and also it automatically takes the information (bookmarks, passwords and history) from chrome and puts those into mozilla.
