Hi,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

When I open a pdf document from a website online, all colours turn violet. The original colour is just shown on the miniature view on the left side. Every time I open the browser again, there different pages shown with the original colour, but when I click on them they stay violet. When I download the document, it has the correct colour.

I have tried to change the colour setting for designs with high contrast, but there is no difference.

Dear Firefox community,

we discovered a bug in Firefox 102.0 for Mac; to summarize: downloaded files are in some cases saved, without file extension - not in all cases though (otherwise probably lots of users would've reported this bug already).

It's not completely clear to me, why this happens, I'll first describe it more in detail: We noticed this problem specifically for Citrix Workspace .ica files (by the way, you can find more info reg. this filetype here: https://fileinfo.com/extension/ica ). So instead of saving let's say, 73sz92dz.ica, it's just saving 73sz92dz - if macOS tries to open this file, it defaults to "Text Editor.app", and all normal Citrix workflows are broken. So to explain, why broken: these files are generated automatically from Citrix, after login in the browser; then downloaded and normally opened by "Citrix Workspace.app", if it's installed >> then the remote Desktop opens, and you can work in Windows.

I didn't notice this behavious (saving files without file extensions) for .dmg files, .xlsx, .zip etc., apparently all regular known file-types are saved as expected. Even for files with the .ica file extension, it doesn't always happen; maybe for 30-50% of the Macs. All the same, I'm pretty positive it's not a Citrix problem: if I downgrade Firefox on the clients affected to Firefox v. 101.0.1 for Mac, everything works like a charm again. By the way, we have a couple of hundred of Macs here, and I do distribute some Firefox-settings with our MDM (Jamf) - but it's not related: it happens on unmanaged macs (private, or machines not managed by MDM, etc.) as well, and everything I tried reg. settings to create "automated" workarounds up to now, is more / less unsuccesful (only manual workarounds, like downgrading Ffox or adding the file extension by hand...).

I suspect, it may have to do with the Mime type definitions / handler config files in Firefox: I also noticed there's some older Firefox-bugs reg. this topic. It's not entirely clear for me yet, how these handlers, MIMRE type definitions etc. work in Ffox; I'll post an update, if I make progress, which might be useful for fixing this. By the way, I might just as well post this via Bugzilla, I guess (I'm new to the Firefox community)?

Many thanks for hints!

Hi guys-

I've just recently started having this problem with two websites, both of which I have accounts for: my company's own website - bbowt.org.uk - and Canva.

I can get onto both sites and start using them, but invariably - after a certain amount of time - they will freeze up so that none of the links on the page work anymore.

The only solution is to go to 'Clear Recent History' then 'Clear Active Logins' - but a) obviously I don't want to log out of these sites - I need to be logged in to work, and b) I'd like a permanent solution.

All suggestions welcome

Thanks a lot

How to prevent history for long unique query strings

We frequently visit sites that use long query strings. Some of these strings are unique and session-specific, and the server will never allow them to be used again. Other query string variables are used for session-specific navigation, like a page number or a record ID, and we may never have interest in trying to get back to that exact same spot within an application, but we might want to save some higher-level entry point. As a simple example, look at your history and see how many entries there are for 'www.google.com/url'.

To reduce the size of my history, I'd like to filter what gets logged. Actually I don't mind "History" for history's sake as a record of places we've actually been. The problem is that the same database is used for autotype and other purposes. The current implementation is not ideal for going back and visiting "applications" versus "specific web addresses". Maybe it's better to state that History should track URI's but when we are navigating back through History to go back to a specific page we're more interested in a less-specific URL. Using Google as an example again, it's OK for History to record the fact that I've visited a hundred Google search pages, or page 2,3,4 for a specific search, but ultimately I might only want to save the part of the query string that is relevant to a specific search. The next time I go back to some page there might not be a page 4, so if I'm going through history again for the purpose of revisiting pages, I just want to see page 1 of the results.

Can anyone recommend a plugin that allows regex filtering of history, or recording of page visits into a different database in addition to Firefox History? From there of course it would be convenient to filter that data by time and otherwise, just like History.

From a developer perspective, History gets written to a specific database/file - can someone tell us exactly which file and format that is? I might be able to write a post-processor that filters out underable records.

Is there a better approach to managing history? Is History just an automatic Bookmark, meaning I should be looking for a bookmark manager for this? Or maybe we should do a mass copy of History into a dedicated Bookmark folder, manipulate records there, and use that for back-navigation?

Time to create an Enhancement request?

Should I write a plugin? :)

Thanks.

Following that last update to Firefox, the Facebook game Criminal Case stopped working properly. When certain things are done in the game the screen in the game is shrunk and doesn't occupy all the space it should do. When this happens, none of the buttons on that screen in the game work. In the attached image, the in-game screen should occupy all the black area that surrounds it.

Other players of the game have reported similar problems when using Firefox. I am currently playing the game successfully in Opera GX browser.

FF v102.0 MacOS 12.4

Been FF user since the very beginning & user on Mac for 15 years. I installed new FF only days ago on my new iMac 27" Intel i7 machine, runs fine except when I click on an external link like in an email or PDF I expect FF to open up 1 page of that link only as in the past, what I get is 2 pages opening up at the same time, one of the home page & the other of the clicked link. Launching FF direct from app dock is fine & it will launch into my home web URL.

Why is this happening ? Previous version of FF 101.01 on my old iMac i7 runs perfectly.

FF has never done this in the past, it's VERY annoying & can't find an answer for it. Seems like FF has done this before in the past on other versions, but I've never encountered it.

I know FF are usually quick to fix things pear shaped, hoping someone out there has an answer for this now or I simply stop using FF, Safari works fine ;)

I use IIS 10.0 (win 11) to manage a local site and Dreamweaver for web design. Well, when I try to preview a temporary page I design, Firefox does not display the images of the page nor execute some simple javascripts. It seems that I have to add an exception somewhere for the local URL (http://asmatron.blog/), as I have done with Edge, but I can't find where to.

Hi,

so for 2 versions now (since 101.0.1, while 101.0 was still ok) everytime when I'm in the Library/Bookmark Manager and expand any folder on the left, in the main window with the bookmarks, it jumps to the very top.

That is especionally annoying when you've selected some bookmarks to sort into folders which you first need to expand.

Why was that change? That behaviour wasn't there in earlier versions; and also makes no sense.

Two days ago I tried to log into my account at addons.mozilla.org, but the page would not take the codes from my Google authenticator, or any of the saved recovery codes. I was able to change the password via email reset, but no way getting in to disable the 2-factor thing. I can't even seek support from that account, and this is why I'm using a different account to post here.

I want to add that this behavior started suddenly without my having changed anything on my account. The support page that instructs users to reset the clock on Google Authenticator is incorrect, too, since this app does not provide that function (maybe it did in the past, I guess).

Bottom line: I'm stuck and my addons are not getting updated. I'm sure Mozilla wants me to update them, but they have to provide a way for me to log in. Regrettably, it seems to be impossible to talk to a person.

Any help will be appreciated. The account with the problems is fruiz500@gmail.com Thanks!
