Ya tiene permisos de cámara y micrófono, reinstalé incluso Firefox y nada, ya probé con Chrome y si funciona, qué puedo hacer? Me parece que esto es un bug o algo, porque si funciona en la versión anterior, alguien sabe cuándo lo arreglarán? gracias.

Hello,

The gestures defined by browser.gesture.swipe.* do not work on Firefox Linux unless the ALT key is held down. I only discovered it that worked at all with ALT by accident while searching about this issue...

Is there a way to get gestures to work WITHOUT requiring the use of the keyboard (which would seem to defeat the purpose of having touchpad gestures)?

Thanks.

Recently Firefox (both regular and dev edition) started showing monospace fonts in SF Mono Heavy variant. I use macOS 11.4 and Firefox Developer 90.0b6 but it happens with Firefox 89.0 as well, even in Troubleshooting Mode.

Below is a screenshot of a GitHub page. The same page rendered in Safari or Chrome on the same device show normal variant of SF Mono. Notice that the code on the page is rendered in heavy weight.

Running inspector mode shows that Firefox selects SF Mono Heavy even though regular variant is clearly present in the system.

I have tried disabling hardware acceleration and webgl. Are there any other ways to troubleshoot and fix the bug?

This is only a Firefox problem, and I am able to use my back button normally in other browsers.

When I click back on my mouse after I am done reading a page, rather than going back a page it just assumes that I want to autoscroll, and allows to me scroll up and down the page rather than go back. How can I fix this? Most current version of Firefox on macOS.

This also is affecting the forward button on the mouse as well, it also goes to autoscroll. Scroll wheel click functions as normal (autoscrolling).

What can I do?

[Firefox v89.0 64bit] Screen reader stops working with Firefox whenever Firefox is closed and reopened

Hello!

I've been using Firefox with a screen reader for a few months now because I recently had issues arise with my vision and needed to get one. I use NVDA, which is a free screen reader, and before the update to version 89.0, it worked flawlessly, but the new update has created a unique issue that I haven't found a fix for.

Say hypothetically that I am using Firefox and my screen reader is working fine with it. If I close Firefox and then re-open it, all webpages, including the new tab page, can no longer be read by my screen reader. All it will speak is the tab title or the word "unknown" whenever focusing on the webpage. This also happens when the computer is first turned on. The only way I can temporarily fix the issue is by reinstalling Firefox via the latest installer I've gotten from Mozilla's site, and once the installer itself opens Firefox, it works again. If I close the program or restart my computer, I need to run the installer again to fix the issue.

This isn't too big of a deal for me, since it doesn't take long to run the installer and Firefox is reliable after that, but I could see this being a bigger issue for other people with vision issues if they aren't aware of the installer fix. Does anyone know of a solution for this problem? I know it's a rather specific issue that doesn't apply to a majority of Firefox users, but this is a notable accessibility issue that I wanted to bring up since there doesn't seem to be a permanent solution to the issue in version 89.0 of Firefox and nobody else has seemed to have reported the issue as of when I'm writing this.

Additionally, if this helps, my current installation of NVDA is marked at version 2020.4. If any more specific information is needed, please let me know and I will try to provide it as quickly as I can. I also don't know if this is necessarily an issue of Firefox needing to fix support with NVDA or if NVDA is the one I should be contacting about this, but just since I'm getting this odd behavior only when closing and re-opening Firefox, I wanted to ask here first.

Thank you!

[SOLVED!] Firefox 89 Update: Can't Select Text, Drag Image, Use Scrollbar - EVERYTHING Drags Entire Window

[OK, I figured this out, but cannot delete this question, only edit it, so I've marked it as solved, and will add the solution below this initial question. Basically, it was due to my eternal battle with Mozilla's tabs bar placement, and the code I used to solve it]

Hi. After upgrading FF to 89 last night, besides the usual battle with Mozilla's insistence on moving the tabs to the very top, I've come across something that's quite serious, and rendering FF unusable: whenever I try to select some text, like on a page or in the Google search bar, the text cursor suddenly becomes the move cursor, and the entire window is dragged. The same is true when I try to drag an image directly into a folder. Also, forget trying to navigate a page by dragging the scrollbar - that initiates a drag of FF to another desktop (scrollbars within pages, like the one at the right of this text box I'm in, just try to drag FF up or down). So this is like holding Alt in Linux to click and drag the whole window in focus, and it's not something I asked for. The only thing I've been able to fix is dragging by clicking on an empty area of the menubar, navigation bar and bookmarks toolbar, with the following code in userChrome.css:

"#navigator-toolbox {

 -moz-window-dragging: no-drag !important;

}"

(That first line apparently was supposed to disable dragging in all areas, including the title bar, but it only worked for all the toolbars below the title bar, but I'm OK with being able to drag the window by the title bar).

I can still drag to select text in the address box, and the Search box next to it, and I can still drag tabs to reorder them, but trying to select text on pages is impossible. The only way I can sometimes select text, depending where I am (like in this text box) is to start the drag, let go of the mouse button to stop the drag of the window, and move the cursor till all the text I want selected is highlighted, and either hit Del to delete it, Ctrl+C to copy it, or type over it (I cannot, for example, stop selecting and go click the Bold button above, etc).

I can confirm that going into Troubleshoot Mode "fixes" this issue, but without my extensions - and with tabs way up the top (WHY???) - I can't use FF, I'm afraid. Now I'm guessing it's some code in userChrome.css that FF89 doesn't like, rather than an extension, and that bit of code I found at least stopped the dragging of FF by elements above the web page, besides the title bar (but those are unimportant), so if someone knows the code I can add that will fix this major nuisance, or option in about:config I can change, please let me know. Many thanks in advance for your help.

[THE SOLUTION: it seems the fix to the tabs bar issue - which after the upgrade to FF89 wasn't up the top again, but at the bottom of the entire window, invisible, and unclickable - meant there was some duplicated or conflicting code from a previous edit, though it was never an issue before this. I edited the "TabsToolbar" section of userChrome.css with new code that put the tabs back below all the bars, and all was good. I should have realised something was amiss here because I actually selected the code in FF last night to paste into userChrome.css. So I went looking through the file for anything useful, and actually near the top I found my earliest fix for this tabs issue, being the line: "#TabsToolbar { position: absolute !important; bottom: 0 !important; width: 100vw !important; display: block !important; }" - it had never been commented out, and strangely enough never conflicted with all the revised TabsToolbar code I've used since (sadly, that's been changed many times - Mozilla seems totally committed to getting people to use tab at the top!). So while I've solved this, if anyone understands the reason behind that code causing this really strange issue of click-hold-drag initiating a drag of the entire window, please feel free to enlighten me. Cheers]

Hello Firefox People again, Thank you for fixing the scrollbar color boxes! My scrollbars are all the right colors and size now and my options buttons are working.The dotted lines on all my webpages left and have returned to normal again...but I still can't get my firefox color extension to load up at all. I'm just wanting to know if you're working on it or not. I see a lot of other people are having not a few quiet fits over the colors being messed up here. I'm not going to yell at anybody though...I can see you have an awful lot of "I wants"and "I'm leavings" to deal with. I have Firefox version 88.1 handy just in case, but to me the security fixes are more important, so I'll stick around and wait for everything else to work. I will use the themes others have made for now. Crossing fingers for fixes so I can play. Have a great day/night!

the mid June Best Upate Ever update did not display well (Top toolbar was 1/4 of page) Plus Firefox wanted to ditch my passwords and bookmarks in Refresh, so I panicked, immediately shut of the internet and restored W10 to an earier date. I had a download of v46 but could only update to version 60, as it was the last version to accept my saved profile.

Will I have to stay with v60 forever now,? or is there a way to be upated again and not affect syncing a "refreshed" profile to my computer and phone. I really need my bookmarks and passwords. Oh, and has the display issue with W10 been fixed?

Hi I recently started using 2FA on my account. Unfortunately i have forgotten the back up password so can't access my encrypted accounts.. I contacted Authy and they said; " the best approach is to contact each service you have a 2FA token for in Authy and ask them to disable 2FA on your account so that you may regain access. This is needed because Authy doesn't store your passwords on our servers as a security measure to protect your accounts. " So how do i disable in Firefox? I don't see an option in settings.

I can find no recent documentation on command line options for the Firefox Browser. All of the information on this appears to be out of date or just does not work any more (in the latest version June 2021). Is there any documentation on this anywhere that is correct for the current version of the browser? I am specifically trying to run firefox with command line options on Windows 10 but I do not see that that should make any difference. The only option I can get to work is starting firefox with a specific URL; even then I have to change the browser settings to get that to open a new window; because the browser settings override the command line option -new-window

My problem started after being on a Betfair portal site and selecting Firefox as my browser, declining to select Internet Explorer - since then my cursor has speen spinning - i looked at Task Manager to see constant activity and two copies of Firefox, so I entered "Cursor spinning" on the Help - and found the thread above. Great! But how do I resolve the problem, I'm not an IT person and I don't know where to enter any "kill..." commands, whatever they are.

It's very convenient to drag a url from the address bar into a bookmark folder, unless the folder has a lot of entries, then scrolling the list by dragging the new bookmark off bottom or top of the list to look for the intended destination, is too fast & prone to drop off top or bottom.

I guess this is something to do with scroll physics ? but I tried a few hopeful looking possibles in about:config without success - very impressive all that, I had no idea.. but... it would make my work easier if I knew what to adjust.

There are three regions where the cursor has different effects. In the central region - where bookmarks and folders are displaye -, moving the cursor does not cause scrolling. In the top & bottom regions the cursor causes scrolling up and down respectively. I imagine there is a parameter to control the proportionality between the distance from cursor to region-boundary & scroll-speed. Is this how it works ? Can I adjust that, or is there some other way to make this interaction more controllable ?

I'd be grateful for a reply, but even if not, I want to express my gratitude for the great work of this project. It is amazing to see the resilience of open software against the tsunami of commercially driven development - good though some of that is. It almost gives me hope for humanity ;-> Thank you all
