Alt-tab loses functionality after entering fullscreen mode in the browser

Since the last update [76.0 (64-bit)], whenever I enter a fullscreen mode in any media player on a website (e.g. Youtube) I can no longer Alt-tab normally, even if I close the fullscreen. Instead it takes 3 times to switch to another window - first press of the Alt-tab combination causes Firefox to lose focus but remain on top, 2nd press returns focus onto Firefox and then the 3rd one actually switches to another window.

This also occurs when simply switching to fullscreen on any other website as well (by pressing F11).

This also causes any newly open windows to be displayed under the Firefox window.

Pressing Ctrl-Alt-Esc minimizes the window normally and the issue does not occur then, however, it occurs again whenever I go fullscreen.

The problem occurs also in the Safe mode. Antivirus did not find any issues, so I don't believe the cause to be external.

OS is Windows 10 Home, 64-bit.

The sideways scroll arrows on each line of videos on the Amazon Prime Videos website have stopped showing on my Firefox (76.0.1 Win10), but they still appear in Chrome. Makes navigating tough. Could this related to the last Firefox update, or is it an Amazon issue?

Morning, every time when I click on a link on a website which should open a pdf document, firefox start opening several (infinite) new tabs with the document. Even if I close Firefox completely the process will continue if i open Firefox again. This can only be stopped when I smash the Strg+W Puttons to close all the Tabs faster then they are opening.

I hope someone can help me with this. It is really annoying when it happens.

Thanks and best regards.

Hi,

I only want to mention that Firefox hangs on download, if I want to download VMWare Player for Windows from https://my.vmware.com/de/web/vmware/free#desktop_end_user_computing/vmware_workstation_player/15_0|PLAYER-1555|product_downloads

After clicking the button for the download destination nothing happens and reacts anymore and I have to kill Firefox. The dialog for choosing the download destination won't be opened. (Winodws 8.1 Home 64bit)

IE 11 works well.

On the homescreen of Firefox that has the "Top Sites" section along with the "Recommended by Pocket", I cant seem to get rid of Facebook no matter how many times I click "dismiss" or "delete from history". I'm just trying to take a brake from Social Media and dont want that icon tempting me.

I know I should just not click it, but it would be easier without it there.

Hallo,

sorry, dass ich in deutscher Sprache, in Abhängigkeit vom Wohnsitz, anfrage.

"Cookies und Website-Daten Die gespeicherten Cookies, Website-Daten und der Cache belegen derzeit 99,0 KB Speicherplatz.":

- Diese 99,0 KB lassen sich seit Wochen auch nicht manuell löschen, obwohl ich davon ausgehen darf, dass das Vernichten der Daten bereits im Rechnerabstellung erfolgen muss/soll.

Was sind Ihre Ziel führenden Lösungsempfehlungen? Auch die Neuinstallierung der Browser-Software führte leider ganzheitlich-nachhaltig nicht zum Ziel.

Was verbirgt sich konkret unter den '99,0 KB', wie kann ich das wo einsehen und endlich die Löschung manuell oder eingestellt automatisiert wahrhaftig löschen?

Besten Dank für Ihre Unterstützung bereits im Voraus.

Freundliche Grüsse C. Wilhelm

How can I hide the full address of the website like I can in Safari? Like, in Firefox, the full address of the website is always visible, unlike in Safari, you can hide the full address of the site in the address bar. e. g. Google Earth is https://earth.google.com, right? In Safari, what you would see by default until you clicked the address bar; google.com. the reason, [[file:///Users/DavidZhao/Desktop/Desktop/Screen%20Shot%202020-06-05%20at%204.03.17%20PM.png]

In Safari, [[file:///Users/DavidZhao/Desktop/Desktop/Screen%20Shot%202020-06-05%20at%203.59.41%20PM.png Google Earth on Safari]

In Firefox, [[file:///Users/DavidZhao/Desktop/Desktop/Screen%20Shot%202020-06-05%20at%204.03.59%20PM.png Google Earth on Firefox]

Just in case the file links don't work, uploaded images below (in order)...

But then, if this feature doesn't exist, at least add this feature
