Hi, Description: Sometimes when I move my cursour over certain elements on a website, black or white Blocks appear. These Blocks are always rectangular but usually not sqare. Oftentimes the block will have Diagonal lines running up to the top left corner of the Box. The apperance seems to be connected to mouse movement. They pop up and dissapear only when the mouse is moved. And stay when they have appeard and the mouse isn't moved. Esspecially highliting things makes them occur. Example images are provided. Occurance: They are not limited to one website, though they don't seem to appear everywhere. Their occurace seems to be consistent. They are not limited to websites however. White boxes can also appear over highlighted text in the URL, regardless of the website. Example image is attatched The Boxes occur in no other Browser and in no other Programm. They have been there for a while, so it's not the version. Tried Fixes: I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. The boxes also appear in Private windows. I used the suggested feature for removing all settings and addons. Interestingly if I run firefox in Troubleshooting mode none of the Boxes appear.

Like I said, I only have these issues in the Firefox browser, so if it is a problem with my system itself I'd love to get your Ideas to what might cause them.

To whom this may concern, I am requiring about getting back bookmarks I recently just lost. I had a list close to 3000 of them, however I reformatted my PC and found out there weren't being synced recently and don't have the bookmark backups in my file list anywhere. Have tried many data recovery software to no avail, if there's a possibility I could have access to my last few bookmark updates to the cloud that would save many headaches Thanking you

I have enabled the "Reduce motion" in macOS to limit animations when using app exposé or switching between desktops. Firefox seems to read this option from the OS and limit its animations, such as the loading animation shown next to a tab description when loading a window.

Is there an option to ignore the OS settings and enable all animations in Firefox?

When I watch fullscreen videos in another browser (Chrome, Safari, etc.) on my Mac the video fills the entire screen. For some reason when doing the same in firefox the video does not reach to fill the entire screen and instead only occupies the middle. I tried screenshotting to illustrate this behavior but the screenshot was restricted to this middle zone as well. It seems like somehow firefox is shrinking the display size when no other browser exhibits the same behavior.

It also seems like if I want I can drag the video window around in fullscreen moving the whole video player around my display. I shouldn't have to drag the thing around to get the video to play right.

Hi; Search engine does not open in new tab. This is not how it used to work. Not sure when this started, possibly when windows updated to Win11(2 weeks ago), but not sure. I think there used to be a setting for opening a search in new tab, but I can not find it. I have "Add search bar in toolbar" checked. I use DDG as search engine. I did lookup in FF help but found 10yr old answers. I am sure many things have changed since then.

Also when searching FF help is there a way to sort by newest first?

TIA

I have not updated my build to the 118.0.2 version yet, the reason for that is because I've read a couple of reports of people suggesting that the 'Show tab previews in the Windows taskbar' from 'Settings > General > Tabs' is enabled by default, and thus there is no longer an option to turn it off.

I don't like to clutter my taskbar with tab previews, that's why I've always kept 'Show tab previews in the Windows taskbar' turned off.

Is this true? or is the option to keep 'Show tab previews in the Windows taskbar' on or off still available in the 118.0.2 version?

Hi, I am using Firefox 118.0 for Fedora that comes with my Linux distribution (Fedora 38 Kinoite). Everything was working fine, but as of today, when I try to start Firefox from a taskbar, my entire desktop goes black for a second and then returns to normal with Firefox not starting as if I didn't click on the icon at all. However, if I open the Terminal and run Firefox from there, everything works fine. I am not sure if the problem is related to Firefox, KDE Plasma or Fedora, so I will start here. I attach my system info below.

Terminal output (Firefox works fine from here): $ firefox Crash Annotation GraphicsCriticalError: |[0][GFX1-]: vaapitest: ERROR (t=0.40708) [GFX1-]: vaapitest: ERROR Crash Annotation GraphicsCriticalError: |[0][GFX1-]: vaapitest: ERROR (t=0.40708) |[1][GFX1-]: vaapitest: VA-API test failed: failed to initialise VAAPI connection.

My issue is that I have a huge amount of likes in my Instagram interactions and I would prefer to not have to just manually scroll. There are extensions that if the scrollbar is at the edge of my browser screen they all work. but sadly if its a scrollbar not at the edge of my browser screen they do not take affect.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/autoscrolldown/?utm_source=addons.mozilla.org&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=search


if the solution is with javascript in console, or to edit the html

just inform me what you need me to get to get from the body inspect element in order to know what element is the scrollbar i will do that for you!

i just want this to be able to be autoscrolled, but the extensions wont do it

if someone could help me id really appreciate it

Hello,

I have requested support for this issue multiple times. Please assist.

Firefox always displayed my website main image until the latest update. Now on any device that uses the Firefox browser my main website homepage image does not display leaving a huge white area on the homepage. This of course is now a major issue that did not exist with this same image before.

Nothing has changed in the programming of my website which is why I need support from your tech and if anything is blocked could Firefox please unblock my main image to show on all Firefox browsers?

I look forward to your quick response.

Thank you

there used to be an add on called roomy bookmarks that stopped working so people found ways around to replicate it and it works on win 10 but I just switched to Win 11 and this solution doesnt seem to work anymore for me, anyone know if i need to change anything?

    Locate your firefox profile folder, in this article they say where you can find it: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder
   Find your profile folder mine was: C:\Users\***\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\***.default\
   Locate a folder called chrome (if it doesn't exists create one through your O.S) must be lowercase
   Locate inside chrome folder the file: userChrome.css (if it doesn't exists create one through your O.S, google how to create a .css file on notepad) Chrome must be cased as shown above
   Add the code: https://pastebin.com/1r6cc8hW
   Restart Firefox, now you are done, if you don't want text to be displayed within the icons just remove the last line. 

This is the line of code i have in css file that works for me in my win 10 machine.

/*

* Recreates the basic functionality of the popular Roomy Bookmarks Toolbar add-on in Firefox 57+.
* Uncomment the section with the functionality that you want, leave all other sections commented.
* This only affects toplevel toolbar bookmarks and folders, bookmarks and subfolders in folders are unaffected.
* The tooltips on long hover (showing bookmark name and link) are unaffected.
*/
/* some margin settings, do not comment out */

.bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-text {

 margin-top: -1px !important;

} .bookmark-item {

 margin: -1px !important;

}


/* No text on toolbar bookmarks; Text on bookmark folders. No hover effect. */

  1. PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item:not([container]):not([open="true"]) > .toolbarbutton-text {
 display: none !important;

}

  1. PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item:not([container]):not([open="true"]) > .toolbarbutton-icon[label]:not([label=""]) {
 margin-inline-end: 0px !important;

}


/* No text on toolbar bookmarks; No text on bookmark folders. Show bookmark text on hover. */ /*

When I select in Settings>Privacy & Security>History, that a history should never be saved and close the Settings tab, the next time I go to Settings, the option is replaced by the setting, that saves a history according to customisation and there's a check mark to always use the Private Mode. Apparently Firefox doesn't keep or save the setting. I learned from https://support.mozilla.org/de/kb/privater-modus that saving a history according to customisation with the option to always use the Private Mode enabled, is the same as never saving a history, nevertheless it should be possible to keep the setting (as the setting exists). How can I solve the problem?

Although I have disabled all relevant "sync" settings in Firefox, the browser is still syncing tabs across my MacBookAir and my iMac.

To make matters worse, tabs in Chrome and Safari sync to Firefox tabs across devices as well. The sync occurs in both directions.

I am not logged into Chrome or my gmail account.

Specs: MacBookAir: early 2015/ OS v. 12.7 (Monterey) iMac: Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, 2017 / OS 12.6.8 (Monterey)

Things I've tried:

  • Turning off syncing in Firefox on both devices.
  • Signing out of Firefox from both devices.
  • Disabling "sync open tabs" via Firefox preferences
  • Renaming devices from within Firefox Sync. (The name always reverts to the previous one.)
  • Reinstalling Firefox
  • Deleting cache from both Firefox and Chrome.
  • Restarting

Images are from toolbar on iMac when Firefox is open on both computers. Any help would be most appreciated! Thanks!
