I think the title says it all: Can't add Firefox to Microsoft Focus Assist Feature (Windows 10)

I like this feature because it lets me disable notifications while filming or working on other projects but currently I cannot add Firefox to the priority list.

It may be a new feature to you (like it was to me) so here's the easiest way to access it.

Focus Assist (Right click on notifications Icon in bottom right corner) > Customize Priority List > Apps

I can add Google Chrome and other web browsers but not Firefox.

Anyone know what this is or how to fix it?

Thanks in advance.

Greetings.

Whenever I click on a link to Facebook, the page manipulates the browser history, effectively disabling the back button by adding multiple instances of the same page. I read that Google addressed this issue with Chrome a while back, but I don't find anything about a fix for Firefox. Is there one?

Hey,

This is a bit of a stretch, recently I've been experiencing some blackscreen events and it's been very difficult to pin down the problem. Windows Event Viewer shows the error as "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered." (event id 4101), which by itself is not very helpful at all.

Essentially what happens is both of my monitors go black for a few seconds with a 'no signal' message, and then come back to life. All audio continues to play as normal and I can still interact with things on my PC, even though I can't see them.

The thing is, they seem to happen more frequently (if not 100% of the time) when viewing video playback in Firefox through YouTube, Twitch, etc. So this got me wondering, is the problem actually caused by Firefox? I'm using developer edition 87.0b1, which is the latest version.

I haven't recently updated my Nvidia drivers (I'm using the latest drivers - 461.40) or Windows itself (I'm using Windows 10 Pro 20H2), recently I did update my Firefox and if my memory serves correctly then the timing would about line up for when I started getting these crashes.

I appreciate this is quite a niche issue, but it seems like a software rather than hardware problem (and of course may be totally unconnected to Firefox, I'm just poking in the dark). This PC is all quite new and I've had 0 issues at all other than recently these driver crashes started happening out of nowhere.

Has anyone else experienced a similar issue?

For some reason Firefox is deleting my browsing history every time I exit the browser. I do not have the setting enabled to 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed'.

This seems to have started happening since I told Firefox to 'forget' a couple of sites in my browsing history.

I do not have any external programmes such as antivirus that would delete the browsing history.

What could be causing this?

Hello. Sorry to disturb you.

My name is Dominic Simpson. I am contacting here because I am redesigning my website, and in the process have found that there are problems with Firefox. Specifically, I am upgrading the Photography section of my website, which currently looks like this: http://www.dominicsimpson.co.uk/photography.html

My upgrading includes employing Bootstrap frameworks to make the images scale gracefully, while within a responsive container that already exists. In addition, when the user mouses over an image, the image transforms nicely with descriptive text over a blue colour, rather than what is there at the moment, where the user has to click on the image to have a larger one come up in a separate window with a description watermarked in it.

I am finding that Firefox is not displaying the images in this new work-in-progress. This is despite the fact that: 1. I have upgraded to the latest version of Firefox, and have deleted extensions, cookies and cache, as well as checking settings in the Configuration page of Firefox 2. Other web browsers, such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Opera, have had no problems displaying the images

You can see the new code here on GitHub, together with the CSS: https://github.com/DominicSimpson/photography

The photography section of the CSS is on line 1951 onwards (it’s a huge file).

Is there some kind of code that I can add to the CSS that would make the images appear in Firefox? Look forward to hearing from you, and thanks for reading.


Kind regards

Dominic

I wanted to ask whether I can still use Enhanced Tracking Protection while still using Facebook Container and Multi-Account Containers. It looks like the option is not showing up in the preferences. Does use of ETF undermine using the other two? Which one is better to use? I don't want to lose the function of Facebook Container to block Facebook trackers from all the websites, but I also want other websites to be kept in separate containers as well.

Checking on a surprise loss of 12.5 gigs, in an hour. and not online during that time, they are "looking into it."

Did a review of data usage per app and found that Firefox has used over 18g of data in the last 30 days alone. How is that possible? A relatively new phenomenon.

Suggestions?

No virus, no malware, ran a few other tests. No issues.

One add on is being used right now. all others have been off.

Thinking FireFox is hijacked?

Thank you.

Hi, I'm unable to change my Firefox Account password.

I navigate to the Manage Account page, click Change next to Password and enter my old and new password and nothing happens. The page gives no indication that the change has applied and my password remains the same.

I have also tried this in a private window, on Google Chrome and on my phone and the same thing happens.
