After the latest update I couldn't open a tab because Virtual Shield was running. If I shut it down then the tab would complete the retrieval process and then writing the screen data finishing the task. Otherwise I was left eternally waiting for the tab to open. Could it be the update to DoH is causing a routing cross over? Either way I'd like my virtual shield to function in firefox because we re too censored up North. Can someone please help me?

Thank you, Mel B

Hi, how do we set Firefox 99 to use the os/system print dialog?

We are using Linux.

In Firefox 97/98 we could change these settings in about:config: widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.file-picker = 1 widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.mime-handler = 1 widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.print = 1 widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.settings = 1

Then we could get the os/system print dialog by clicking the "Print using the system dialog..." in the Firefox print preview.

In Firefox 99, widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.print is gone. No matter what we set the other widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.* keys to, we can only get the Firefox print dialog, when clicking the "Print using the system dialog..." in the Firefox print preview. We do not get the os/system print dialog.

So, how is that done now?

Thanks for your time :o)

Hi since the mos recent update of Firefox i am now finding an odd thing occurring - in the top right of the browser where you can quickly access, recently dowloaded items, if i try and move the downloaded item from there as normal, then the first time i move an item it is fine and normal, but if i try to move any other downloaded items in the list, then this doesnt work and only the same initial file can be moved/copied.

I noticed this firstly when i saved a bunch of images from my google photos and then tried to move those images to a facebook post from that downloaded quick list, and only the first image would get copied over.

Gentle-persons,

I noticed Firefox support does not mention System 11? [version 21H2(OS Build22000.556)] Is this a problem?

I am running Express VPN. Is DNS-over-HTTPS a partial duplication of the VPN function?

Since I am running a VPN, does it make any difference if DNS-etc. is enabled or disabled? Potential problems?

I have been running with default, DHS-etc. enabled, without any problem, as far as I know.

Thank you for your help! Best Wishes, wAlanB

I am running Firefox 99.0.1 (64-bit) on an iMac with MacOS Catalina 10.15.7. With one of the recent Firefox upgrades (a few months ago, not sure which version the issue started with), I can no longer print from Firefox using the MacOS system dialog. I have tried the suggested fix of going to the about:config page and setting the preference print.tab_modal.enabled = false , but that does not enable the system dialog print option, when I do a print from within Firefox it still comes up with the Firefox print dialog, which simply isn't usable for me. --> How do I set "print with system dialog" as default???

When viewing a WikiSpecies page with many displayed links (e. g., https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Cymindidina), clicking an unopened (light-colored) link opens it to a new page and turns the link color to a dark blue. This display is controlled by the choice "Never" on the Firefox "Settings/Colors" page. The colors of links seem predetermined by "Never", which also enables unused links to be shown red.

Is there any way to change the clicked-on link color from a fairly dark blue to a darker one, while still showing unused, empty links as red?

My eyesight is not the best, and a darker blue "Never", if possible, would help me be sure I had visited a page.

Some FF desktop notifications persist in the MacOS Notification Center (the sidebar you access by swiping in from the right), like Google Calendar and 1Password. But Gmail notification banners do not, and they are only displayed for a few seconds, making it very hard to click them quickly before they disappear. I have looked in Gmail settings to control persistence but that is not an available option. FF notifications do not include a persistence option for notifications either.

This occurred while using MacOS Big Sur on an Intel Macbook Pro 2019 and Monterrey on a M1 Macbook Pro 2021

I was wondering if some websites ask for my microhpone permission, it can autofocus to the microhpone permission dialog of Firefox.

Because I sometimes use the Tab key to browse the websites, when the websites ask, I have to: 1. Press Tab key to several times to first get to the Firefox Menu Bar. 2. Press directional key to choose the phone icon. 3. Press Enter key to enter in the permission dialog.

Thank you.

Since the recent update to Firefox 100 the only usable theme seems to be the light theme.

When using other themes, for example the dark theme, some areas of Firefox become unreadable. For example the tab bar:

How can I change these colors individually, so I can use the dark theme again but still see and read my open tabs?

I searched extensively for this and could only find answers regarding bookmarks, not add-on icons. Of course I could still be missing it...

I am upgrading from Firefox Developer 86 to 101.

The spacing between add-on icons has been increased in Firefox 101, making the URL bar shorter:

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-05-26-17-03-36-e06f37.png

Does anyone know of a userChrome.css script that I can use to decrease the add-on icon spacing in Firefox 101, to make it more like Firefox 86?

I noticed in my wife's identity that "share" from the top file menu does NOT bring up the options for (Mac 11.6.5) to send an email or message, etc. I know it works from my identity w. same computer/settings. It used to work all the time on her identity, (and does so w.o issue using her Safari), but I don't recall an update.

   It also is obnoxious as all the 'share' brings up is the stock Mac "extensions' options, of which mail, messages are grey scaled out (as is iCloud), with no padlock or way to make them clickable/check or uncheck!   I have run safe mode, disabled extensions from the top bar, but have no idea how to make the "share" share!!!  It does work if we just highlight the page address and post it into macmail (14.0).  These permission things have no clear way to reset them for Firefox...i.e my calling up Mac support would probably be useless.

I regularly switch between two Firefox settings:

Search for text when you start typing: checked Search for text when you start typing: unchecked

I use a third-party scripting tool (Macro Express Pro) to automate the process so that a single hotkey toggles between the two settings. My macro looks something like this:

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): <F10> // Move focus to the Menu bar Delay: 800 milliseconds Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): t // Tools Delay: 200 milliseconds Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): s // Settings

Delay: 1000 milliseconds

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): <SHIFT><ALT>x // Toggle the search setting Delay: 50 milliseconds

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): <CONTROL><F4> // Close the setting pane

My macro is a bit unreliable. It works about 80% of the time. I could improve reliability a little by using longer delays, but my preference would be to do this in a more programmatic way, or at minimum, in a more direct way with fewer steps.

Is there a way to toggle this setting, for example, via about:config or by typing something in the address bar? The Firefox hotkey in the Settings pane is SHIFT + ALT + x. Is there a way to force this hotkey to be recognized in a regular Firefox window?

I have a little javascript was given to me that increases the volume when playing Youtube vids that are too quiet. here it is: javascript:(function(){var videoElement = document.querySelector("video");var audioCtx = new AudioContext();var source = audioCtx.createMediaElementSource(videoElement);var gainNode = audioCtx.createGain();gainNode.gain.value = 3; /* triple the volume */ source.connect(gainNode);gainNode.connect(audioCtx.destination);})();

I don't know how it works. Whether it talks to firefox or it talks to win10 or it talks to Youtube. I don't know.

But sometimes it doesn't work. then I have to reboot.

Seeing it is in Firefox I just thought firefox guys might know something about why it doesn't work and perhaps some way to kick it into action?
