I seem to be encountering various problems since the update to 73, the main one is the profile folder, I dislike the default location so have previously just put my preferred location in appdata\roaming\mozila\profiles.ini but 73 regularly ignores this and puts a basic profile in the default location and alters profile.ini. Using the profile manager does not get any better results. I am also having problems with the home page, I have set a custom page but 73 often resets this to a blank page or sometimes the default home page. I have had to resort to a 'portable' version as 73 constantly resetting things was getting so annoying but the portable does not work well as a default browser.

I'm customizing Firefox's look via a userChrome.css file. The only thing I have in my userChrome.css is the following

/* Focused tabs color */ .tab-content[selected="true"] {

 opacity: 1.0 !important;
 background-image: none !important;
 background-color: #797979 !important;

}

which should change the selected tab's background color to #797979.

However, if I check the colors with an external tool (Digital Colour Meter for macOS) I can see that the selected tab's background color ranges from #747474 to #797979, when I'd expect a uniform #797979.

Why am I seeing these inconsistencies?

After opening a mp3 file in a new tab, the audio starts playing. When the space-bar is pressed the playback pauses, and when it is pressed again the playback plays.

But when I pause/play the playback with mouse click, the space-bar keyboard shortcut stops working. After this, pressing the space-bar doesn't play/pause the playback.

However, once I reload the tab, the keyboard shortcut starts working again.

The keyboard shortcut works inconsistently.

Please help.

Hello,

I have for now a work flow where I share my bookmarks between different firefox profiles, without any acces to web/net/cloud/whatever..., all is local to my computer. This works well with an old firefox version. But, because there is a but. I'm blocked in this situation. My firefox version is 60.9.0esr. I can't go higher because starting with firefox version 62, there where changes that prevent concurrent access to sqlite databases.

I did some search in addons to try to find an alternative, without success. I also already done a research in previous support questions, without success too.

So, maybe someone have an idea or suggestion, to help me achieve that, or something similar, with newer firefox version. I need to upgrade to something more up to date.

Thanks in advance, K.

whenever I try to open a webm in a new tab (no matter if I already have it on my desktop or it's from a website), firefox asks me to either open or download the webm, but neither will actually play it.

if I press "open with firefox" a new tab opens with just the same message and en empty background. if I download it and then open the new saved webm, it's the same aswell.

My Firefox version is: 80.0.1 (64-Bit)

So, I have been looking for lots of solutions but none of them worked. I'm using Ubuntu 20.04 and want to install and update Firefox Dev automatically. I tried some ways:

  • By package manager:

First, I uninstalled the default Firefox, removed its ppa repo then added Firefox Dev ppa and installed. Opened up and it was still normal Firefox.

  • By downloading .deb file from Mozilla:

I could install by this way but every time has an update, Firefox will notify me "Firefox can't udpate to the latest version. Download a fresh copy of Firefox". I also have Chrome to be installed via .deb, it can update automatically. Why Firefox can't? It's very annoying that every time I open Firefox, it pops the notification up. It's impossible that every time Firefox has an update (which occurs regularly!) I have to go to homepage, download then install it manually. I can write a script to update Firefox but I want an official support from Mozilla.

When using Facebook messenger I receive audio & video ok. When calling someone on messenger I get a drop-down message from Firefox asking me if I want to allow use of my camera & microphone. Despite me approving use, I only ever broadcast audio, leaving a blank screen for recipient. Please do not get me involved with technicalities - I am competent with the hardware on my laptop and can bang out spread sheets and documents, emails, and browse the web - I just cannot fathom out trouble shooting and do not have the confidence to "mess about". I guess it's an age thing.

I have had many an expensive trip to my local computer repair shop, to undo the mess I have got into trying

to sort out alledgedly "easy problems"

Will try to explain. Not talking about the website tabs as favorites in the top row - but about module tabs to show up in the top row in a program. When I open a program (work related) - there are modules in the program such as "Participants," "Financial," "Vendors," and so on. When I click on a module, it opens up in a new browser. Problem is, when it's in a new browser, it doesn't identify participant/case I'm working on. I want the "Participants" module tab to appear in the same page in the top row so I can see which case it is - and be able to switch tabs on the same page (like you would with different websites on Firefox homepage). I tried to paste a snapshot of it here but didn't allow me to. In Chrome - I can click on a module/link, then on the top header right click my mouse to select the option to "Show as Tab" - then the tab will appear on the same page and I can easily identify which participant/case I'm working on. I prefer to use Firefox - however it doesn't offer that option to show as tab. I was using Internet Explorer, IE - but the program is no longer supported by IE. Is there a way in Firefox? Thank you.
