I've asked this question before and got no answer. Every time Firefox has an update, all my pinned sites in the "top sites" section gets discombobulated. What can I do to stop this? Apparently the sync feature doesn't seem to be working. I'm getting tired of manually putting everything back every time. If I don't get an answer I guess I'll have to disable updates.

the 1st youtube video is played out on the screen, and the other video in my headphones.

I would like to give my little brother my pair of headphones to watch youtube, and for my class lectures that I have to watch, I would like to listen to them through the screen, or vice versa. And of course I would split the windows up, his screen of youtube on the left, and mine on the right.

Thank you

Hi, I have started to use notion.so and they have a nice range of keyboard shortcuts, e.g.

cmd + shift + p

for moving pages :)

Unfortunately this shortcut is already "blocked" by Firefox for opening "New Private Windows".

There is no chance to alter the keyboard-shortcuts on notion, so I wonder if anyone can help me with remapping this one in Firefox to, let's say: cmd + alt + n?

Thank you Sascha

Hi,

I have Firefox installed on my MacBook Air running OS X El Capitan.

Everytime I go to open Firefox I'm met with "Firefox is trying to install a new helper tool. Type your password to allow this".

Is this a bug or is there really something to install every time I log on?

Any help / advice appreciated

Hello, I'm using Firefox 81.0.2 on Ubuntu 20.04. I have a local html page with link formatted link that : ssh://server.domain.com If I type in a terminal : xdg-open ssh:/server.domain.com No problem it works as intended, however in Firefox it doesnt if I use xdg-opn to open a link starting with ssh. I suspect it comes from the fact that meanwhile my links are written like that : <area shape="rect" coords="1428,438,1463,495" href="ssh://server.domain.com" alt="" onmouseover="showTooltip('n14')" onmouseout="hideTooltip()"> when putting my mouse over the link it appears in the bottom left corner as: ssh://server.domain.com/ That trailing slash is most likely the problem ssh:// mime shouldn't consider / to be anything more that a caracter and I don't blame xdg-open here, but why would firefox add a trailing slash to a link while it's not written in the html file in the first place ? Hope any one will have an answer.

This question was already asked [this thread] but the solution doesn't work for me.

In about:config, no matter what value I give to permissions.default.shortcuts, sites are still able to intercept my keyboard shortcuts (eg Ctrl+f).

I can disable it for individual sites, using Page Info > Permissions, but I'd like this turned off across the board because I find it creepy when sites mess with my controls.

Hi,

Tried to find the solution but the problem boggles me.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox on Windows 10 (2004). Using one Windows session (let's call it WS1), my profiles (even new ones) are extremely slow, as if I had a really bad Internet connection (but responds well to typing or opening new tabs or operating in general, just slow navigation). I have a backup browser, Opera, that works just fine. On another Windows session (WS2), Firefox works just fine, even with the profiles from WS1.

Safe mode doesn't resolve anything.

It can't be a driver problem, as it's the same PC, shouldn't be a software problem, same reason, and both sessions are built pretty much the same way.

I tried uninstalling Firefox, using Windows Disk Cleanup as per this solution https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1219670 then reinstalling it again and no change.

I can't use the other Windows session as it's not mine, and I can't create a new one either.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Edit: I was finally allowed a new Win session and the problem disappeared. Can't delete the question though.
