i use two screens with windows extend function. one screen i mainly use for watching videos (youtube, twitch, etc) on browsers. when do other stuffs such as playing games or writing stuffs in Mword, basically when the active window is not on the video browser tab, the video stutters. any way to fix this? maybe its because the memory/cpu allocation to the video playing window is lower when tabbed out?

Hello :-),

I am working on an data privacy tool on python3 over Selenium. One requirement is to track all outgoings connections/cookies over Firefox.

Please see the first attachment for my Firefox configuration. When I have a look at the network tab in Firefox there are still some forbitten connections (2nd picture). How can I allow all of them?

I am using a dedicated profile for that crawling.

Thx for your help.

For a long time, I stuck myself on using Firefox v50~. You know why? -Because it's Firefox, I never wanted to use the Chrome-wanna-be of it. Until I had to, on the side, because some pages require it.

Then there's this "Download Update" | "Not Now" that I have to deal with. So tired and sick of it spamming everytime I open firefox. I hoped every update that they'll remove it, but nope.

I hate always updating it to the newest version because I would have to update all of the plugins that I have. And most of the time, the plugin developers hasn't made an update yet, takes time for them to catch up.

Pleeeeaaaaase. If you don't want to remove that, give it a timer to popout.

I was trying to use the inspector in developer tools on the Firefox Developer Edition. It does not really work. It can find the first object you move to and after that as you move the cursor around the website you are trying to locate elements on, it just stops working. I was using version 63, so I updated to the latest version 78.0b9 and the same problem exists. This is consistent across multiple websites. I find this odd because the regular Firefox Developer Tools do not have this problem. I think it is a bug. Can someone please confirm this. I do not think it is possible I am doing something wrong. Somehow I thought the Developer Edition might have even better, more powerful tools, but I am finding it does not even really work. Can anyone help fix it? I would not have the time right now to come up to speed to help the team fix it, myself.

My environment is Mac OS High Sierra.

I have a web site bobgatto.com. when I enter the domain name just as bobgatto.com ans press enter, the site appears as it should. However, no https:// is attached to the name in the address bar and an icon of a lock with a red slash through it is at the left of the name.

Now I believe there should be an https:// because my web host set my up with a free SSL. I checked the cPanel and the SSL status is active. I even tried to reinstall the SSL certificates and keys, clearing cache memory, but I'm still getting the same results.

Can anyone out there help?

Thanks,

Bob Gatto

When I type in an address in the search bar Firefox intermittently serves up a blank page and attempts to download the page as a file. This only seems to happen when I omit typing in www. in an address and doesn't seem to happen when the address is in my recent history and Firefox autocompletes it.

My internet connection is fine and this is not happening in other browsers.

I am on firefox 72.0.1, windows 10 ver 1903

Ever since the last update, about once a day when I try to start firefox my curser starts flashing. After a few minutes my explorer.exe restarts and I will have about 50 copies of firefox to close.

So now when it happens I try to open up task manager and kill the firefox.exe process but it doesn't do anything, the only thing to do is wait for explorer to crash and then close all the firefox windows. Next time this happens I will try restarting explorer.exe manually to see if I can stop it before it opens too many windows.

I highly down this is an addon problem, been running the same 2 for years.

I'm pretty handy with these computer-web thingies - was exctied to see the recent upgrade, but all of a sudden, all of my searches are being passed to Google - MASSIVE RED FLAG?!?!

I had all of my security dialled in very tight - removed Google, removed Twitter, removed Facebook, removed Amazon, set up containerized browsing to stop them all from talking to each other via ads, upgraded all security settings to give myself a nice, quiet interweb...

Is there any way updates can respect (at least) the selected search engine from before the update, so as not to expose my data to the cartel?

Many thanks - I'm a big advocate for Moz://a and all the amazing things you do <3

Every time I go to google calendar, the page is blank. I have no idea how this started. I have the sidebar, but no content in the page, i.e. the main calendar with all the events. I've cleaned the cookies and cache and disabled all extensions, reinstalled firefox and nothing. This is super annoying. How do I fix this?
