I'm using OpenSuSE Leap 15.2 , updated Firefox these days, and now when I click on the menu, it opens and shows up to the right, out of the screen (when maximized). Also when I hover over options close to the right edge of the screen, the bubbles show partly out of the screen, same as the main menu. I've tried Refresh, Safe Mode, downgrading to a previous version, but nothing helps now Mind the menu on the screenshot.

Any ideas?

best, Istvan

So Firefox shows site status indications in the lower left corner. I don't know the technical term, since it's not just the one site I've allowed to send notifications. On some pages, these contrast with the background. So these flash as the page loads, and they can flash again if the page tries to load something new every 30 seconds. I am photosensitive and flashing can hurt and I want to either block this or find some way to reduce the contrast, such as showing this in a continuous bottom panel.

Is there any way to block this? And what are they supposed to be called?

Why was one of the add-ons able to take over control of the entire browser and add-ons in it and establish its own rules? At the same time, it deleted all history and open tabs and my profile (firefox) did not save anything and did not restore the current session after reinstalling the browser, although it is worth remembering the current session and tabs there. I tried to remove this add-on for a long time, but it blocked all possibilities to do it. The browser began to open with one tab with an incomprehensible address, which was not even displayed correctly, and any attempt to search for something led to the opening of an incomprehensible search engine, but it was possible to go to Google. I don’t remember the name of the search engine, alas, it was several months ago, there was still no time to write to you. Oh yes, on the screenshots everything is in Russian, I'm not sure that you can fully understand them, and if so, write to me about it and I will try to translate the key positions. I would be glad to hear at least some thoughts on this in my profile mail. Here are some screenshots:

I use Firefox Enterprise on both Windows and macOS, this alone is the single reason why I gravitate towards Firefox the most, it might be even my main browser, I really don't know which is since I have at least 2 opened at any given time, normally 3 or 4. The best part of it is that I don't have to set it up, it's all done. I use Firefox Sync just in case I use Firefox somewhere else, like a phone or Linux, or to push a page to another device (really, it's pulling the history bc push has never worked) but I can live without it.

When I use Firefox on Linux though, it's a night and day experience, it feels like I have to setup Firefox from scratch even after logging into Firefox Sync, it's only synced selectively mostly cares about useless stuff or stuff that I wouldn't let the browser save, like passwords, partly (but very little) because of privacy but mostly because I use a ton of browsers, I can't micromanage each. I even disable all of this via policy and that's what I'm looking to do, find how to deploy policies on Linux clients. I assume is just a config file like the preference list on Macs, even if it's not automated it should be easy to make available centrally a pull it on demand and drop it in the right place with some script but I have to find how's it done first and what settings will there be supported, none of that available in the documentation of Firefox Enterprise.

Fedora Server 32 now comes with an easy GUI for 389 DS (not FreeIPA for some reason) and a deployment tool for desktops both as Cockpit modules, which is also the GUI used by Red Hat in a lot of their products, OpenShift for instance. I wonder if I could use this to deploy Firefox settings. It even connects to Active Directory out of the box, if it could only process Windows policies... anyway. Is there some obscure documentation, maybe in beta, that goes over any of this?

Thanks.

it used to be so easy to close multiple tabs in the previous version of Firefox. A right-click and the single key Would close either all other tabs for tabs to the right. I use it all the time.

New method that requires multiple mouse clicks and traversing a drop-down menu is clunky, time-consuming, and annoying. There's no reason both options couldn't be available at the same time.

Is there a way to submit a request for this in the next update?

Is there a preference to disable the expansion of the urlbar (aka address bar, awesome bar, mega bar) without disabling its new features? When expanded, it covers part of my bookmarks bar and makes it harder to click the bookmarks. Also I dislike the chunky UI look.

Things I've tried that did not solve my problem:

  • browser.urlbar.megabar: This is gone in 75.0.
  • browser.urlbar.update1: This disables the expansion, but also disables the new icons, suggestions, etc.
  • browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus: I don't know what this does but it wasn't it.
  • ui.prefersReducedMotion: This disables the animation, but the bar is still expanded.
  • Search with the Firefox address bar: There is no information there about the expansion.

I'm hoping there is a browser.urlbar.update1.expand or similar that I can toggle off. If there definitely isn't, please confirm so I can submit a bug.

Hi,

Problem as described in the title. I've read some similar questions and answers, but nothing ever helped.

I already tried the following steps (none of them helped): - Checking for updates - Toggling DRM on/off - Uninstall Firefox completely (delete profiles, too and so on) - Changing some DRM or Plugin related config in about:config like media.peerconnection.video.h264 (and of course reverting it after that) - Looking for XHR requests when toggling DRM on/off or visting a site with DRM content. I couldn't figure out what I'm actually looking for, though... - Switching off Firewall/Antivirus or the TLS filtering (Eset) for a moment - Looking for suspicious requests in some router protocols or dashboards or whatever

Thanks in advance!

I can't open a Spotify URI from Firefox But I can open it from command line using the --uri option. As in, this works fine from the terminal:

spotify --uri="spotify:artist:6OqhFYFJDnBBHas02HopPT"

and whatever Firefox is doing just launches Spotify without navigating to the thing indicated by the URI

Is there, perchance, a simple file edit I can do that will fix this for me?

Hi,

I need to disable the Top Sites section where facebook/youtube etc. buttons are shown. In short I want every new window and every new tab shown on the browser to show a blank page (about:blank) for all users, and this needs to be configured at install time.

I am using a policies.jason file during installation to control certain aspects, but there is no setting to do what I am trying to do. Is there any way?

I am using Firefox 78.3.1 ESR. Thanks in advance!

Hi,

I would like to set this pref to TRUE by default with the use of user.js file but I can't find the name of the pref related to this behaviour :

I'm on a window. I click on a link. Before it fully load, i get back on my first tab. The opened tab fired up a popup to inform me of something.

I would like to be automaticly redirected on this tab without having to manually press the checkbox on the dialog popup.

There must be a preference to add to user.js in my profile folder to set it to TRUE.

Thank's
