Hello, I'm a Firefox user.

One day, my computer auto-restarted for some unknown reason.

But since then, the shortcut pages saved in my Firefox have been initialized.

It's not a bookmark. The first page website shortcut page.

However, when I enter the URL link again, there is no reaction.

What should I do in this case?

There used to be Bookmarks & History in the top left corner of my home screen. They've vanished and I want them back, especially Bookmarks. The Bookmark line at the top and Other bookmarks still exist but they don't have the really important bookmarks.

THIS ADVICE DOESN'T WORK

Type about:profiles into the address bar and press the Enter key. This will open the About Profiles page, where you can view, create and manage your Firefox profiles.

Hi.

Similar to this question: https://support.mozilla.org/ln/questions/1291938

I would like to know how to customize "autoconfig.js" or "firefox.cfg" so that the home page is focused instead of the address bar when I open Firefox.

I the linked question, the following solutions works fine for focus content on New Tab:

    Services.obs.addObserver((event) => {
      window = BrowserWindowTracker.getTopWindow();
      window.gBrowser.selectedBrowser.focus();
    }, "browser-open-newtab-start");
  } catch(e) { Cu.reportError(e); }

It works fine, but I can't make it work for the Homage page when it's configured to open a local file.

I tried to bind the "window.gBrowser.selectedBrowser.focus();" action on the "browser-open-homepage-start" event but it has not effect.

Thanks.

I use to be able to click a link in an email and it would open the link. Now it has a popup that says you are keeping me safe and I have to say it is not spam and it will open. I want it to open automatically when I click on the link instead of having to open it in a new tab.

Transferred to another computer, installed FF as default, but now only Stands Fair adblocker will show, not uBlock origin so I can't point out to the extension which popups it's missing.

Unrelated but posted THIS as well: How do I get FF to ASK ME EVERYTIME WHERE I WANT TO DOWNLOAD FILES? It's box is ticked, but it STILL saves it to a temp file and opens the file in a window.When I posted that query I just got a bunch of canned responses of kb articles telling me to follow the steps I had already tried.


Thanks!

I have a component that depends on browser events for online/offline events to let know the user when he is disconnected from the activity.

I was checking on firefox, and for some reason Im not able to see the event been emitted when disabling the network (I did test it, turn it the wifi on/off).

in the image , there is side by side with chrome and firefox, so I know my event listener works, but doesnt seems like firefox is sending the events,

I have a js using same examples from the documentation,

has someone else notice this? , or is some sort of settings in firefox?, according to the documentation it should be supported by default,

my poc code->

<title>Online Offline</title> <script type="text/javascript"> console.log(" ******** Online Offline in real time **********"); const handlerOnline = async () => { console.log("online handler :: ", new Date().toISOString()); }; const handlerOffline = async () => { console.log("offline handler :: ", new Date().toISOString()); }; window.addEventListener("online", () => handlerOnline(), false); window.addEventListener("offline", () => handlerOffline(), false); window.document.addEventListener("online", () => handlerOnline(), false); window.document.addEventListener("offline", () => handlerOffline(), false); window.onoffline = (event) => { console.log("1:: The network connection has been lost."); }; window.ononline = (event) => { console.log("A:: online"); }; window.addEventListener("offline", (event) => { console.log("2:: The network connection has been lost."); }, false, true); window.addEventListener("online", (event) => { console.log("B:: online"); }, false, true); window.addEventListener("offline", (event) => { console.log("3:: The network connection has been lost."); }); </script>

I have restored my Windows 10 Home (64), deleting all previous installed apps during the process. Hereafter Firefox and Thunderbird are downloaded and installed.

I did not find the 2 Apps in the usual program folder, and they do not appear in START->ALL APPS.

Searching my computer, I found Firefox and Thunderbird in these locations: Firefox: C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Mozilla.Firefox_121.0.1.0_x64__n80bbvh6b1yt2\VFS\ProgramFiles\Firefox Package Root Thunderbird: "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\MozillaThunderbird.MZLA_115.6.0.0_x64__h5892qc0xkpca\VFS\ProgramFiles\MZLA Package Root\thunderbird.exe"

My question: is this the usual place or have I mixed things up during installation ?

As said in title. I like to drag links/youtube videos to new tabs instead of right clicking/middle click. The problem with this is that these tabs autoplay after a short amount of time without me switching to them, whereas right click/middle click do not (since I have autoplay on unfocused tabs blocked). This problem persists in troubleshoot mode.

I have tried the site-specific autoplay permissions, but I still want to keep the 'switching focus to new tab autoplays content', and I do not want to have to press play if I use firefox's site-specific blocked autoplay.
