Like many users, I find Google's 'before you continue' pop-up annoying. Because I automatically delete cookies on browser exit, it keeps popping up as it doesn't remember my settings. I have installed Google Consent Dialog Remover, and it has been working well... until now.

I just did a search for a place, and tried to click on the map to go to Google Maps. The dialog intruded, despite the add-on. But worse than that, when I clicked 'I agree', nothing happened! I cannot get to the maps page at all. I've tried disabling enhanced protection -- no change. I've tried disabling various add-ons -- no change. I've tried restarting FF in safe mode, but the same problem persists.

I can't figure out how this is happening or what to do about it. Any suggestions?

Thank you!

I'm running Firefox 85 on Mac OS Catalina.

When I open dev tools on the Network tab, the default view of the "details" panel is not very useful: it's stuck at the 40px height at the bottom.

So I drag it to be half screen height in order to be able to see the panel contents.

The problem is, when I restart the browser and open the dev tools again at the Network tab, my changes haven't been preserved, and the "details" panel is again at the useless 40px height.

How can I make Firefox to remember the layout of panels in the dev tools?

I typed www.netflix.com in the address line and Netflix tried to come up. But I got a huge black page with an error message.

 Error Code F7702-1003 

At the top of the page in a thin yellow box it says

 The WidevineCdm plug-in has crashed. 

It suggested that I reload the page and the plug-in would reset itself. I did but it didn't.

How do I fix this problem?

Searching for non-ascii characters will also match normalized ascii counterparts, leading to too many false positive matches.

For example, searching for the character "å" matches both "a" and "å" on the page.

We should be able to configure whether to normalize the characters or to use strict matching.

When using screen sharing, FF (up to the latest release 88) offers to share each of the open applications or the full screen. What's missing is to share just one of 3 monitors, if that's what one is using. Chrome has that option, but FF doesn't. Is that on the roadmap to be added? Or is there a plugin or hidden setting that would allow me to do that already?

Hi, thanks for clicking the post.

I have become very interested in the Logitech Craft keyboard. It has a wheel at the top left that has different functionality for different applications.

What I would want it to do is to be used as a simple scroll up/down in Firefox and other web browsers.

I have asked the community at Logitech's website and was told by a dude there that the Crown wheel in fact cannot be used as a simple scroll. Which seems to me like a major blunder as it is to me the first obvious thing for a wheel.

My question is if the information I got was incorrect. But if not, then I would very much appreciate if anyone here could tell me if there's any other way to get it, a simple scroll using the Crown wheel, working for Firefox.

Many thanks! Regards / B

Good morning everyone, for at least 6 months now I'm having a lot of problems viewing some sites with Firefox. I have not been able to find common points between these sites, I only noticed that many are made in Wordpress.

Anyway when I load these sites Firefox takes 3 to 5 minutes to display them. Sometimes the screen is white, other times the wheel turns. Any other browser, of course, plays the same sites immediately.

To complicate things I have to add that the same sites sometimes start loading normally again, and then stop loading. But not all of them. I mean that one starts working again, another one continues not to work and vice versa.

I've done dozens of tests without being able to solve the problem in any way. I list them:

1. Deactivated all the extensions, even uninstalled, loaded Firefox in safe mode and nothing to do. 2. Uninstalled Firefox completely (cleaning %appdata%, windows registry and program folders) and reinstalled clean, no go. 3. Installed various versions of Firefox Developer, 32 bit, ESR, normal, even portable, always without extensions and with standard configuration and nothing to do. 4. Unplugged the network cable and connected in thetering / wifi with the 4G of the cell phone and nothing to do. 5. Tried a neighbor's wifi and nothing to do. 6. Wiped the pc, registry, uninstalled any software that wasn't absolutely necessary and nothing to do. 7. Started Windows in safe mode and nothing to do. 8. Uninstalled Eset Antivirus (I have a friend who has the same antivirus anyway and he can see any site perfectly with Firefox), deactivated Windows Defender as well and nothing to do. 9. I've followed the advice of dozens of articles modifying about:config in various ways (always making a backup first) and nothing to do. 10. Checked the pc with 4 different antivirus, antirootkit, antimalware and it was perfectly clean.

At this point I don't know what to do except give up using Firefox after a decade, because the problem seems to increase, in the sense that the sites that I can't load are more and more.

If someone can help me to avoid it I am very grateful...
