I have set Firefox to open new links (links I often select from emails) in a new tab. About half the time, Firefox opens the link with the cursor at the very bottom of the newly opened page and I then have to click on the page and press Command-UpArrow (MacOS) to get to the top of the page in order to start reading the linked article. How can I set Firefox to always open links at the top of the page?

Thanx,

Ken

Recently I will have a bar at the top of my browser pop up, about every 2-3 minutes, stating that, "You must login to this network before you can access the internet". Of course, I am already connected to the internet and web surfing like normal. It's extremely annoying, momentarily resizes the window which I am browsing on and has no way (at least that I am aware of) to stop it.

Whatever this new feature is I would like it to stop. I did some reading, the article indicating disabling this feature can cause security issues, however there has to be someway that this doesn't constantly popup and annoy me to death. Looking for any explanation/information on how to prevent the constant annoyance of this bar popping up.

I use a 21:9 Monitor and for everyday use I have my window size set to te middle 2/3. When I restart Firefox the window shifts upwards by 8 pixel and after closing and restarting a second time the position is back to normal.

"screenY": switches between "0" and "-8" in xulstore.json

I wanted to add screenshots, but the image Upload is broken right now (Error 502 Bad Gateway)

I can repeat this indefinitely. Every 2n restarts the position is off and every 2n+1 it is correct.

I tried deleting xulstore.json but that didn't help. The screenshots where made with a new userprofile but that chaged nothing either.

I love Firefox Multi-Account Containers, but would really like to see one additional feature.

Directly below Open in New Container Tab I would like to have MOVE to new Container Tab (IE change the container for an existing tab). Currently I need to Open in New Container Tab and then delete the original tab. The existing configuration options are not sufficient, but should not be removed.

USE CASE: While surfing I may open a number of tabs related to a product or topic. I may then click on a link for a similar or different item (lets call it subject). At some point I may have a number of tabs open for 2 or more subjects. At this point I decide to move some to a new container to help me group the subjects. Currently this is 2 actions as opposed to 1.

Not sure if I am missing something. At this point none of the other add ins appear to, at least from their description, offer this function and I prefer to use as few add-ins as possible. I realize that I may need to relogin to the site to perform a purchase.

I recently used Firefox to look at a website (it doesn't matter too much, but it was www.untapped.io/)

I left-clicked on a link on said website.

My computer launched Microsoft Outlook (an email application).

I hate Microsoft Outlook, so I right-clicked on the link instead of left-clicking.

Right-clicking opens a context menu in Firefox. There used to be a "copy email address" option in the menu. Now there is only "save page as", "save page to pocket," etc...

It used to be that I could copy the email address and paste it into the "TO" field in the email client of my choice, such as gmail.com

When I right-click on a link for an email address, there should be a "copy email address" option.

I really, really, do not want the computer to open Microsoft Outlook every-time that I click on an email address in Mozilla Firefox. I would prefer to copy the email adress and paste it into the email client of my choice.

I think that part of the problem is that the link is not actually a traditional, old-fasioned, HTML hyperlink.

Instead, it looks something like this:

     Let us know

I've spent days, reading the forums and other places on how to fix this issue, and nobody or anyplace has an answer. I've tried every single thing. I've been using firefox for many years, and have built and fixed computers for over 20 years.

This is unreal. I've been given instruction here a couple times, and they don't work. I'm being told, "it works for everybody else" So I'm the only one having this problem. Can somebody that knows how to fix this dam issue with all addons and themes being corrupt?

I'm also using waterfox with no problems at all with addons and themes, I've tried chrome also, and all firefox addons i use and themes work fine. What's the deal?

I noticed that pop-ups are blocked when I use Duckgogo add-on. When I remove the add-on, the pop-ups are not blocked. Google seems to be the only option for a search engine. I want to use Duckgogo not Google but I also need necessary pop ups to work. Can Firefox fix the problem? I want to continue using Firefox with Duckgogo but this blocked pop-up is a big problem. Any solutions?

[Windows] Can't disable displaying "media control" on lock screen even if turned off via advanced settings

Procedure is written on this article: [[Tip] Enable Firefox to Show Media Controls on Windows 10 Lock Screen – AskVG](https://www.askvg.com/tip-enable-firefox-to-show-media-controls-on-windows-10-lock-screen/#:~:text=If%20you%20are%20using%20Windows,enabled%20preference%2Fflag%20to%20False)

Windows has feature that displaying media control popup on its lock screen. Firefox has an option to turn this off via advanced setting, but turn "media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled" to "false" doesn't stop showing it up.

Also, on certain website (in my case tweetdeck), control screen of previously viewed and closed video is keep showing up and can't erase it unless restarting browser.

I asked this question on Microsoft forum but suggested it's Firefox issue. Does anyone have same problem? How can I fix this?
