Hello there,

I am using Firefox 84.0.3. When I type in the search bar suggestions show up that's ok but I feel a little awkward when I have to press Up/Down arrow to focus items in search suggestion list. Instead want to use the Tab key. If i want to change the search engine i can use Alt + Up/Down arrow.

Thanks.

Hi,

I'm trying to disable the media popup in windows 10, which appears when you lower your volume or skip a song or anything (see added image). I have a brand new pc and on my old pc i was able to fix this easily by doing this: go to about:config and change this: set media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled from true to false.

I did that now, with my new pc as well. But i just does not work, i restarted my browser and pc after changing it, i set it back to true and back to false again, it just will not work.

I googled this issue, but the only solution i find, is what i exactly the thing i described above, nothing else.

I've had "HTTPS-only" turned on since it became available in a recent Firefox update, but its behavior seems very odd. I frequently get the error window that says HTTPS isn't available and gives me the option to cancel or proceed to a non-secure site. But most of the time, the page that opens when I click to proceed is indeed an https page.

Why is the Firefox module seeing these pages as non-https and not just opening them as they are?

In the age of COVID and a switch to more remote work the dependency on online meetings has increased. The company I work for uses Google Apps for Business and has been using Google Meet for a long time, and I've never had any problems with it not working. Recently though, when I join a meeting using Firefox, nobody can hear me and it appears Firefox is not able to access my microphone. Here's what I've done to test:

1. Reviewed Windows 10 settings to make sure microphone input slider is up. 2. Checked other browsers, running Google Meet using Chrome works fine. (Note: everything was working before and I attempted to use Chrome to try out changing backgrounds. It seems like this is when my problems with Firefox began) 3. I've tested my microphone using https://www.onlinemictest.com/ initially it didn't appear to work, but if I tap on my laptop screen near the microphone I see lines showing activity, but it won't pick up voice. Using this same tool in Chrome works as expected. 4. I tested using Private Mode - Same results. 5. I tried clearing the startup cache - same results. 6. I tried using Safe Mode - same results. 7. Refreshed Firefox (using Troubleshooting Information screen (Refresh Firefox...)

I'm at the end of my rope trying to figure out what's going on, and why it only appears to be Firefox that's having a problem. Other apps like Zoom, and recording video using just the webcam on the computer also works fine.

Any help in getting this figured out would be appreciated. I try not to use Chrome if I don't have to, but switching to Chrome so I can join web meetings is a real pain.

Addon windows in the Overflow menu are limited or fixed in size and therefore some addon functions are inaccessible or hard to use. Usually I would just middle-click to scroll sideways but with some addons this is not possible (eg. LastPass only shows the "Upgrade to Premium" part and nothing else if it is in the Overflow menu). I love the minimalist black&white look of my current Firefox setup so having the red LastPass icon outside of the Overflow menu would ruin that. Other addons just look bad with all that extra white space, like Windscribe (which should have a very small Addon window).

Is there some way to change the size of the addon window or report this as a bug to have it behave like addons should?

erride Color of Visited Websites since version 69.0.3

Since after version Firefox 69.0.3 32bit, the visited website color can not be altered no matter what variation I try within General - Language and Appears - Color. Background and Text work fine though. I can change the color on the color screen but it has no effect when I have visited websites after a Google search. I pick the color via the rainbox color screen in the Color section.

Being able to change the color for visited website to Red would make my life easier while doing searches to avoid repeatedly going to the same websites previously looked at. Just for your info, I change the colors of the Background to Black, Text to White, and non-visited website to white. I have low vision and it makes it easier on my eyes.

I have this problem on my old Windows 7 with every version upward. I just got a brand new Dell with Windows 10 and it has the exact same problem with both the 32-bit and 64-bit version of 84.0.2. Hence, this is why I have not bothered submitting this issue until I got my Windows 10 unit.

On the Tools - Options - General - Language and Appearance - Color, I have tried both Always Override and Use only with Hight Contrast Theme. Checking and un-checking Use System color and Underline weblinks had no effect. None of these variations had no effect.

I have a web-based app which I use firefox to open. I use multiple tabs like for opening and printing pdf & having multiple modules from the web-based app. The issue is some users are clicking on the firefox icon even though firefox is open & it opens another session or window of Firefox. What I would like if someone clicks on the Firefox icon and it is already open to just display that session of firefox that is open & not open a new window/session. My issue is we have 5 and 6 different windows for the same web app & it's causing some issues. All links should open in a new Tab which they do now but if I can find a way to stop firefox opening twice it will solve my issue.

Subject line says it all. I am discovering that FF 84.02 just leaves a blank spot where the Flash SWF used to be, making pages super confusing to view if they used to have a SWF on them because you frequently don't even know what the page was supposed to do.

Is there any way to get some sort of placeholder graphic like IE has? Or if not, are there plans to implement one?

I'm looking for an extension that I presume exists, but I'm not able to find it: I want to rate websites in the way photo apps allow you to rate your photos, i.e. assign a number of stars to them.

Like https://mozilla.org ★★★★☆

One use case: I'm comparing products where I don't necessarily find something so good that I can come to conclusion now, so I need a way to save it.

Do you know such an extension or have good ideas how to search it?

Hello, evereone!

My win-application (1)compose an local-html-template, (2)call to open it with a Firefox as a "text editor" for some changes and getting final local-html-documents and (3)needs to save changed local-html-document automatically under application control.

Like model works good with any text-editor like notepad, OpenOffice etc. The application retains control of the text-editor until the text-editor closes (with or without saving document).

However, in the case of the Firefox, the application loses control of the Firefox as soon as the page is opened. And the application does not have information about the shutdown of the Firefox.

The question is: Is there an Firefox-option that allows you to keep control of the application over the Firefox during open Firefox or tab-session?

Thank you so much for any hint, Denis Lopatin

We want to customize the look & feel from firefox. We are using the userChrome.css file.

In the past we used the following entry to hide the menu bar in Firefox:

  1. toolbar-menubar

{display: none !important;}

Now on Firefox 78.6 (ESR Release) this works different. The menu bar is hidden but the close Icon (and the minimize/fullscreen Icons) are hidden too.

Is there a way to hide/disable the menu bar but keep these icons/buttons?

This question has been around for years... Isn't anyone else annoyed by having to clean up UNPINNED Top Sites one at a time? I posted over four months ago about trying to find out where Top Sites stores those unpinned sites... no one seems to know, except to say they are placed there by Firefox internally. I presume that means it is hidden in the code somewhere. Someone on the development team must know where? Maybe if there was a poll of users about this annoyance?? I wish I was younger to be able to get back into coding... my old brain just isn't up to it... ________________________________________________________________ You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make 'em think...
