Hi, I hope this message finds the right people. I think my Firefox Dev Edition has been updated recently and ever since this pop-up about remembering my choice of default browser keeps coming up every time I open the browser. It doesn't matter how many times I confirm Firefox for my default browser. The pop-up keeps prompting me. I might not be the only one encountering this issue or rather a bug.

Ever since Firefox updated to 78, previous settings to block video autoplay and pop-out no longer work. I found a page detailing the settings to change for autoplay, but I cannot find anything on blocking pop-out videos. foxnews.com, for example... when you scroll down the page, the video will pop-out to a small, annoying window/frame that you have to close before you can see the rest of the page. How do I stop that in this new version?

It would be really nice if Firefox would stop breaking the settings used from previous versions, especially when "updates" are forced without warning, notice or approval. It would also be nice if websites would stop forcing visitors to watch their stupid videos regardless of whether you actually want to or not; but that is a-whole-nother topic...

Hi! I run several messengers in Firejail (basically because they come with no source code available) to limit their access to my system and personal files. The downside if this approach - processes running in Firejail can't access FF folder and pass URLs I click on. I can grant full access to ~/.mozilla folder and that's fixes the problem, granting full access to all my browser data as well. What the particular absolute minimum files/folders I mast leave accessible for messenger process to be able to click on links and get pages opened in current FF session? Thanks.

After updating to Firefox 78.0.1 (Linux x86_64) downloads that are initialized through JavaScript do not work.

Some examples are: - Downloading Code as a .zip File from github-projects - Downloading books from www.proflificworks.com - Downloading videorecordings from www.save.tv

In the background the download starts and a temporary file is created int the global Temp-Directory but the dialog for choosing what to do with the downloaded file does not open and the file is not moved to the default downloaddir.

Downloading of webpages (Ctrl-S) or Downloading files that are offered via an normal http-link with "Save target as ... " or "Save image as ... " do work.

Firefox (68.1.0) on Android and Opera can use this JavaScript downloads.

When clicking the print button in the interface of Gmail, it opens the attachment in a new tab and shows the system print dialog. When closing that dialog, the tab is closed too.

As a consequence, it doesn't seem to be possible to print attachments from Gmail AND view the print preview. I had some cases, where a previous "scale" setting led to attached scans being printed at half the size of the paper instead of full size, with no noticeable prior warning; By comparison in Chrome the print preview would have shown the issue in time.

Is it somehow possible in Firefox to obtain similar behavior?

A related question is https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1215520, but it doesn't apply here, since I need the preview to be shown, when the webapp at hand initiates printing.

I often have to press icon "Firefox-startpage" first before the startpage I installed will appear. Have renewed the settings (see image below) various times without result. I use a Fujitsu desktop with Ubuntu 20.04.

Another issue is when I search something I get a bar with 9 squares. I press "Pictures" and after that "All" before I see the answer in a normal way (see next images).

Hope somebody can help me. Thank you for your efforts!

Most of the times firefox opens as a broken window in GNU/linux. I am using XFCE4 DE with the default XFWM Window Manager. The way to solve this issue is to resize the window.

But I have never seen it happening with any other application on my system. I see new major version release in firefox, but they never address these issues.

I am currently using a css theme that makes firefox look somewhat like safari, so all of the tabs' content (the text and icon) are lined up in the center. However, the close tab button also ends up lining up in the center, and I'm not sure how to fix that, because of the following code:

/* Center all content */ .tab-content { display: flex; justify-content: center; align-items: center; margin-top: -1px; min-width: 100% !important; padding: 0 10px !important; }

the align-items: center makes it so that the close tab button is also in the center. How can I change the position of the close tab button individually?

There should be a way.

A way = An option if enabled, this happens:

The browser starts to remember the state of the tab he/she was in.

For example, if I am learning by watching "How to build a portfolio website?" video on YouTube or some website in FullScreen, then if I switch to next tab pressing "Crtl + Tab", where I can see my portfolio website which I am editing from VS Code realtime. Now if I press "Ctrl + Tab" again, I want to see my YouTube video in same way, it was left before (i.e FullScreen).

Please, for the love of God, give students like us this functionality where students are not annoyed by having to go to fullscreen again and again.

(If you don't understand what I am trying to say then, do watch see this: https://imgur.com/a/yjibtLG )

Remember the state of fullscreen-ness, your highness. It's a painful process to repeat every single time.

Students learn millions of things every single time through the internet these days. The total amount of time that we save by providing this option is just mindblowing.

Let save time. Let make Firefox intelligent. Pass this idea at least.

There should be some sort of option in about:config where the browser starts to remember the state of Fullscreen videos especially when he/she does this by pressing Ctrl + Tab.

To communicate with this library, i need to define the player in my script: ``` var player = videojs('player_id'); ``` The problem is that the code in my addon doesn't recognize the `videojs` constructor. Do i have to manually add VideoJS library to my addon, or can i „hijack" library from the website somehow?

Firefox makes connection to 'locprod1-elb-eu-west-1.prod.mozaws.net' on every start of the browser. After trying to figure out if its caused by one of my addons I tried Safe mode and found out addons ware not the reason but after using Safe mode the browser started making connection and to d2nxq2uap88usk.cloudfront.net on every start too. The only info I have found for 'locprod.prod.mozaws.net' is that its related to geo.enabled but mine is set to False and for d2nxq2uap88usk.cloudfront.net the only thing for it is in block list for SpotifyAdBlock. I have already tried everything on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections .

Why does make Firefox makes those connections? What is transmitted? And How can I disable them?

Hi,

I have come across this answer as to why youtube page gets randomly updated: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1246764#question-reply

After checking all my settings, I couldn't find any add on or extension containing "high-definition" words in it. My only extention in firefox is ublock origin.

Any idea why the updates continue to take place? Can ublock origin cause it? Or has there been a browser update that could cause it?

Many thanks in advance,
