On a fresh install of openSUSE Tumbleweed 20240313 with KDE Plasma 6 (Wayland), the X button in the upper right corner of the screen does not allow you to click it when the pointer is in the upper right corner of the screen. Default behavior in KDE is to just let you close the window anyways even though the button itself is circular.

Is there any way to change this?

I use the numerical keypad frequently and need to use "/" often, but that key shares the shortcut for "quick find" which I then have to exit and click back into whatever text box I was typing in before I can continue. The alternative is to continually move my hand back and forth to the other "/" shared with "?". Both are annoying and unnecessarily take extra time.

I would very much like to disable the keyboard shortcut attached to the "/" key on the numerical keypad.

Thank you!

Hi all, I've been having this issue for a while. I am unable to view streams on YouTube or Twitch (Twitch will show streams as offline, whereas YouTube will not even show streams), and I have encountered a new issue where YouTube allows only 360p on videos. I have used the HTML5 Video Capability Test and seem to have an issue in that department (images attached). Even in troubleshooting mode, the issue persists. Any help is appreciated.

As of today, I am unable to scroll with my mouse in google sheets. The scroll bar on the right disappears and I'm taken to the bottom of the spreadsheet and can't scroll back up. I have to use CTRL+Home and then the arrow keys to go down the rows. This appears to be only on Firefox. I tried a different browser and it worked fine.

I run Firefox on a Dell laptop running Windows 10 Pro. I had to rebuild my system because of problems I couldn't solve. I've reinstalled Firefox and copied a profile I had saved in the cloud. When I click the extensions button ("puzzle piece") I do not see the extension list, only the add-ons page. do I have to uninstall and reinstall each extension to get it into the panel so I can pin some of them to the toolbar?

Hi.

Ever since I upgraded to version 123.0.1, I am constantly getting slowness on websites stuck in "Performing a TLS handshake..." Eventually the websites load, but it's frustrating. I have read about the various solutions and have tried the following: Disabled IPV6 Refreshed Firefox Reloaded Firefox Disabled and removed all extensions Restart in safe mode Create new profile

This was not happening in version 122 and before. Microsoft Edge does not have this problem, but I prefer to use Firefox. I am running Windows 11 Pro. Any ideas?

Thanks

This is a rebuilt PC after a hard drive died, Windows 10 Pro N version 22H2. and YE

I am trying to access video content on cbc.ca or Amazon.ca and receive an error message that "no compatible source was found for this media" - Amazon or on cbc.ca "Oops...None of the given sources can be played".

Prior to updating Firefox to version 123.0.1, both played video on these sites without an issue.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled FF and the issue persists. I can play the video from these sites with Chrome or Edge without a problem.

I have installed Java and have tried all of the help tips without success:

I have followed and installed recommendations from : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-video-audio-problems-firefox-windows however the latest Media Feature Pack for windows is from 2019 and is no longer applicable to the 22H2 version. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/mediafeaturepack. Windows store does not offer the pack.

The changes suggested by https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/block-autoplay have been applied and no change

I am not running malware bytes or a VPN.

I have cleared my cache, and browsing history, rebooted = no change.

I have no add-ons, extensions or themes installed.

I prefer to use FF, but require that I can view videos from many sites.

Right after a Firefox update on or about 3-8-24, when I click on the network icon on the Windows 11 system tray, the network icon in the Quick Access area is no longer there. But when you click on the network icon you see some soft of video player controls if you have a video open in Firefox, and the network icon is gone! I need to have the network icon restored. And BTW, when clicking the pencil icon to add something to the quick access, there is NO network icon to be added! Its not there, in fact, the "add" is greyed out, and the option for adding "network" no longer exists. I don't really like the video player controls that show up like in the photo, and would like to be able to make that go away.

I've just switched to firefox from brave, and theres no button on twitch to enable picture in picture. Using the keyboard shortcut (cmd+option+shift+]) works, but I'd much rather click something on the screen. On brave there used to be a picture in picture button alongside settings, theatre mode, and fullscreen buttons, but on firefox this has been replaced by a clip button. There's no option for it if I right click (this works on youtube), and no option in the address bar for either twitch or youtube. I've tried disabling all my extensions and lowering protections but nothing seems to work.
