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.

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.

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'm animating a SVG by dragging the mouse that changes the <path d=""> attribute. When mouseUp I'm setting the <animate values="" > to animate from that dragging point and start the animation. This works fine. But if I want to drag it for a second time it looks like the animation has been set to <animate fill="freeze"> although it has been set to "remove". In other words, it looks like the attribute fill="remove" doenst work. I can drag the object (and alter the <path d=""> ) but it doenst show after the animation has been completed for the first time. It only plays the animation.

  • I am including a screen shot to help you. [Note] Although, I'm technically capable, I do not know all things IT or computers. Sometimes one needs to ask for help.
  • Does Firefox not have a direct telephone number for Technical support? Sometimes it's much easier to talk to someone for help than doing all this texting / writing. I feel like major corporations (like Google) are unreachable, if you need to talk to a human being.

Hello, Every since the last 2 updates. When I drag and drop a web site from browser into a folder, the ico that is attached to the website are super super tiny now. They were not before. I have been forced to make Icon (ico) myself from the website Logo (if they can be found) I have attached a picture. The bottom Link is how it now comes out from Firefox (Mozilla browser) since the last 2 upgrades. The top one with the folder "new folder" is how it SHOULD be, but I had to make this ico myself and exchange it out. - this happens to EVERY file I drag and drop. The second photo - the one with family group etc. The top link one is how always use to be the bottom link is how it now comes out. - See how small it has become.

How can I put it back to the top one. - only way I have been to fix this is to exchange it with my own (made) icon - and with this FK (Familykin) one, I can not find a logo clipart to replace it. (which I have been using lots of , as I do my geneology of famous people). Please help me laurie O (Sweden), ps, I prefer english.

Get the error - "Wrong passcode; enter the passcode" again while trying to login to SAP SuccessFactors provisioning when I key in passcode generated by SAP 2 factor authenticator app on my phone. Do not face this problem with Chrome or Edge.

Interestingly, I do not get the same error when I use FireFox in a new In private window. It then allows me to login using same passcode. So I do not face the issue in FireFox using In Private Window.

Hi all,

So I am a multi-lingual user and changing input languages regularly by pressing Windows key + Spacebar.

In Firefox, I prefer turning "Smooth scrolling" OFF so the page sort-of jumps at a fixed distance instead "decelerates" when scrolling.

So far so good. But recently I noticed this Windows key + Spacebar combination can change Firefox's scrolling behavior.

Steps to reproduce: 1. Add one more language to Windows (I am using Win10 ... not sure about Win11 though) so that Windows key + Spacebar shows the language selecting popup 2. Turn OFF "Use smooth scrolling" in Firefox settings 3. Find a long webpage to test scrolling -- it should be "jumping" 4. On the same page, make sure Firefox is at focus, press Windows key + Spacebar to show that popup 5. Try scrolling again -- it's now scrolling very "smoothly". To my eyes, it's even much smoother than turning on "Use smooth scrolling" 6. Now click somewhere outside of Firefox(i.e. Taskbar) to lose focus then focus back to Firefox and scroll again, the smoothness is lost ... until switching language again.

I personally found it quite annoying... Is there something I can do to stop it from happening?

Thanks,

J
