Hi there. I'm a blind web developer and I was wondering if there is some way to make the Firefox developer console more screen reader friendly. As it stands, I have no way of viewing JavaScript runtime errors or much of anything besides the element hierarchy when inspecting an element, and even this only provides very little information. I ask because there seems to be a big focus lately on testing for accessibility, but the tools to do so seem completely inaccessible themselves.

I would welcome any suggestions on how to use/improve the dev tools with a screen reader (I'm using NVDA) or an add-on I can down load that would be more friendly to me. I saw a mention of one called "Firebug", but that appears to be an outdated post.

Hi,

Problem as described in the title. I've read some similar questions and answers, but nothing ever helped.

I already tried the following steps (none of them helped): - Checking for updates - Toggling DRM on/off - Uninstall Firefox completely (delete profiles, too and so on) - Changing some DRM or Plugin related config in about:config like media.peerconnection.video.h264 (and of course reverting it after that) - Looking for XHR requests when toggling DRM on/off or visting a site with DRM content. I couldn't figure out what I'm actually looking for, though... - Switching off Firewall/Antivirus or the TLS filtering (Eset) for a moment - Looking for suspicious requests in some router protocols or dashboards or whatever

Thanks in advance!

Firefox 80.0.1 64-bit; Windows 10 Pro

When Enhanced Tracking is Strict some websites lose functionality.

The only options seem to be.

    Disable Enhanced Tracking for that site

or Set Enhanced Tracking to Standard or Custom for all sites

So far, the frequented websites all seem to work with Strict except one and, for it, I would like to have it set to Standard rather than none.

If I am correct, let me know. if wrong, either direct me to instructions or just tell me. Yes, I have looked.

Thanks!

PS. My current option, for that one website, is to run Firefox in a separate Sandbox and set all websites to Standard.

I have 2 windows of firefox and i close it using bat file. Which terminates process firefox. I used it like that long time and never had problem. However i launched firefox and it said some error and gave me 2 choices: either start in safe mode or refresh. I clicked on refresh and now all my tabs are gone. I checked under history and closed windows - there is nothing... Any way to get my tabs back?

Also how to avoid this issue, if you close window one by one. Than you go to go to library and history and manually restore window, or press some hotkey. Even that is annoying, instead of just using bat file to kill process and than you have both windows open. Because sometimes close window won't safe, if you use hotkey. So i gave up on that...

I have no time to kill all these unnecessary things! I can't find any needed bookmark in this avalanche! My work makes me visit a lot of pages every day and now I am absolutely buried in this ocean of urls that I had to visit only once. The disaster happened after the upgrade to 80.0.1 (64 bit). I tried to forbid Highlighted and Top Sites and use Pocket for the bookmarks I need but it is awfully uncomfortable. What am I to do?

Hi all, Camera/mic work (Logitech HD Pro C920 camera) and are plugged in.

Running Windows 10 on a PC/Ryzen 2500 processor.

I've located all the "Permissions" dialogs I can find.

  1. Permissions for cam/mic  are set to "Use Default" - Facebook error "please allow access (cam + mic)
  2. Permissions for cam/mic are set to "Allow" - same error
  3. Permissions for cam/mic are set to "Ask me every time" - then "Use Default" box is automatically checked.

Firefox is updated (as of today) as is Windows 10.

Does Facebook.com have controls contained within the app under "settings" or something?

Thanks so much for any help.

Hi, I have this error response when connecting to a website I have used to login fine earlier. And suddenly I got this below error message. I have disabled proxy and still the same. Unable to connect

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at support.broadcom.com.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Appreciate your support. Thanks.

Hello,

I have a website on Wordpress that uses google fonts (called via css). The fonts have always worked perfectly up until very recently when I noticed they started rendering improperly. I checked other browsers and found that the fonts render fine in Chrome but not in Firefox or the Firefox-based Pale Moon browser.

I've included screen shots from Firefox 80.0.1 (my default) and Chrome. The Firefox screen can be differentiated by the "Edit this post" link.

The most confounding aspect, to me, is that this is a recent development as they used to render in all browsers without issue. Would anyone have any insight into what may be causing this?

EDIT: Question retracted. The answer was to "turn it off and back on again" (i.e. close and restart firefox). Site works fine now with all addons and tracking protections enabled.

messages.google.com isn't working for me anymore. This is with Firefox 80.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows. All I get is a blank page. The network monitor indicates a bunch of things are "Blocked", but I don't see where it explains why they were blocked. I've disabled all addons, set tracking protections to standard, and disabled Enhanced Tracking Protection for messages.google.com.

Am I missing something?

Last night I had to re-install Firefox because I couldn't connect with internet

Since last night and up to now I've tried multiple solutions, however, the re-installed Firefox is not working as previously (just yesterday afternoon) - for example, on the left all my screens are partly hidden - also desktop doesn't show up, then search is not responding correctly and adding to the taskbar is practically as good as out of order. Unfortunately I've also detected that the re-installment come with demand of using - bing - which I do not use, as I'm very familiar with Firefox & Google which I've been using at least for over a decade an are very Happy with. However - bing - kept popping up, until finally today/afternoon the facility to dismiss - bing - suddenly & fanally was available so it got by-passed, although as much as possible, as it rears its presence still somehow every now & then. On top of all this, I also don't have Desktop

Screen Keyboard disappears after about 1 second. How to keep it on screen?

This happens only in Mozilla Firefox, not in Chrome or Edge, or any other apps that I use. Therefore neither I nor Microsoft Tech Support thinks that this is a Microsoft or Microsoft Surface issue.

Can you help me to have the screen stay up until I close it, as it does on all other apps?

Thanks,

Hello,

If I open Youtube/Amazon/Reddit, basically any site and go to type in the search bar, the entire tab lags out. I can still move between tabs, but I cant interact with the tab that I typed in, and it will eventually catch up with the letter I typed.

This started yesterday. I tried working in safe mode, resetting firefox to default settings, and reinstalling entirely.

Any ideas?

Hello,

I'm using the Logitech M705 mouse with Logitech Options Driver v.8.20.329 under Windows 10 Home 2004 (19041.450) and I have the problem that, from time to time, in the Firefox (always up to date) window the scroll wheel doesn't work as long as the window is active. If I activate another window and move the mouse only over the Firefox window, I can scroll there. As soon as I click into the Firefox window (and activate it), the scrolling wheel doesn't work anymore. Sometimes just opening and closing Logitech Options solved the problem, sometimes it helped to stop all Logitech tasks, but most of the time I had to restart the computer.

I've tried different versions of Logitech Options as well as of Logitech SetPoint, if they could be installed. But the problem kept occurring. (I'm back tothe last Logitech Options.)

Since the problem doesn't affect any other application, Logitech support says, that it must be a Firefox problem.

I would appreciate help that can permanently disable the problem. Because it is very annoying when it occurs.

I can't intentionally cause the problem. But let me know, if there's a way to provide some kind of log file.

Thanks a lot!

With kind regards Michael.
