I got the new update (92.0) this morning and now I have an issue with my mouse. Previous versions of Firefox was outputting my 5th mouse button as a hotkey for closing tabs, but now it's functioning as a back button. My scroll-wheel button (Button 3) now closes tabs. How can I restore their original functions? Can it be done through about:config?

I started using a MacBook Pro which has a bright touch bar where the function keys would usually be on a keyboard, but I like to customize it by removing most of the icons because it don't really use them. For Safari I went to View > Customize Touch Bar, but for Firefox I cannot seem to find that option in the menu bar. Is there any way to customize the touch bar for Firefox as well? Thank you.

Hi, I've got an issue when I ask to download and save a file from a website. The macOS finder window is well openened, but partially mixed with the current web page. it not put on the top. Most often, I must open another app, like Safari and come back to Firefox in order to put it on the top and to be able to change the file name, select de folder and at the end save the file. Attached sample.

It is the same when I ask from Firefox menu to Save As a web page.


Thank you for your feedback.

Hi guys,

I wanted to include Pinterest walls into my Forum and the only browser where they are not shown is Firefox. The add works fine in Opera & Safari. My javascript.enabled is "true", but maybe it's another Javascript setting that needs to be true too?

The code is like this: <a data-pin-do="embedBoard" data-pin-lang="de" data-pin-board-width="900" data-pin-scale-height="400" data-pin-scale-width="450" href="https://www.pinterest.de/amazed130610/rayna/"></a> <script async defer src="//assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js"></script>

Does anyone know what to do?

Thanks a lot!

I'm using Firefox on a desktop (OSX Catalina 10.15.7) with multiple monitors. If I go into full screen mode on any youtube video , e.g., Welcome to Firefox (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRlmP6xWdw0), not only do I lose access to the menubar on the fullscreen monitor, I lose it on the other two monitors I have open Firefox windows.

The browser.fullscreen.autohide setting does not make a difference. I would expect that the only monitor that the menubar is hidden on is the one displaying the fullscreen content.

The attached Monitor1, Monitor2 images show the missing menubar on the respective monitors where a Firefox browser window is open.

Gmail shortcuts not ignored in search bar

I'm a gmail user and use its keyboard shortcuts extensively. The problem I've had in Firefox (but not Chrome) is that 2-3 times per day, when I'm typing in gmail's search bar, the shortcut handling code kicks in.

Here's a more detailed example:

  1. I hit `/` to go to the search bar
  2. I want to search for "peach", so I start typing that
  3. When I type the second letter, `e`, gmail recognizes that as the shortcut to archive the current message.

If I reload the gmail tab, it'll start working again.

I'm on MacOS. I've got five add-ons installed which have permissions on gmail (see attached image), but none strike me as the type which would affect javascript keyboard event handling. The most likely would be LastPass or uBlock origin.

Has anybody else encountered this? Found a solution?

In one of my windows, 9 out of 10 pinned tabs have been lost and replaced with "new tab" (which are all empty, of course).

The only unusual thing I can remember was using a private window a few days ago (a feature that I had never used before). Is this the cause of this bug???

Thanks.

Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm unable to save my username and passwords. I read that it could be that I had upgraded to a new version of Firefox. Apparently, I had previously downloaded Firefox a while ago and just recently reinstalled it. I guess it remembered. I check marked all the password settings and it still won't save at all. It said that I should downgrade to a previous version 68. Then, it asked which browser and that's where I'm stuck.

Can someone please help?

Thank you!
