When picture-in-picture is invoked, it opens video small window. In the past it was a super tiny window, then after some updates it increased in size, then it went small again. The proportions of the window are also useless for most YT vids.

Basically, every time I use picture-in-picture I have to resize it. This is tirin. Is there a way to customize the start size of it like:

- set start size ...x... - remember the last size - auto-size based on the video proportions, set to 1/4 or 1/5 or 1/3, etc.

and so on.

Currently this picture in picture is more annoying then helpful because it require constant manipulation of the picture size. Annoying as hell.

One of my uses of Firefox is as a tabbed reader. So I will have arxiv pdfs open, local pdfs etc. I would like to Sync these views across devices. It seems that Sync ignores any local tabs. For example file:////home/me/books/this_great_books.pdf

I suspect this is to avoid syncing settings files. But is there a simple path-based over-ride for this?

Or perhaps another extension would solve this.

Your instructions for downloading and installing vsn 89 are not accurate. The window that opens when I click "About" contains no opportunity to download. I can't install new vsn either. I need the latest vsn to use upgraded apps like Amazon Music. How do I download and install upgrades?

I can't seem to install vsn 89. I have vsn 87.0 currently and Netflix won't run without an upgrade. Also, Amazon Prime requires Widevine, which requires a FF upgrade, so I need to upgrade. The best I have been able to do is download the tar file and run Extract on it. According to the file viewer, the latest version of FF is loaded, but when I run the program, it's still v. 87, not 89. The simplest method given is to open the 'About Mozilla Firefox' window and the downloader will run. But there is no downloader running when I do that. I would really appreciate it if someone would supply instructions that actually work.

BTW: I've looked for them, and I don't find the 'required' library items. But if these are truly required and I don't have them, how has FF been running at all these past months? I concluded that either they are installed but I couldn't find them, or they aren't really required at all. I've also tried Flatpack and it doesn't work either.

I run firefox on Linux, Debian 10. Firefox 88 and 89 are astonishingly slow. It takes some seconds for keystrokes to get through and also the screen update, etc. are slower than usual. I tried new user, refresh, clean start, without success. Firefox 87, however, works normal, with instantaneous response and quick refresh. Any help? M. Natiello

I've been using global mouse gestures to control firefox externally via marionette, and I found that after upgrading from 87 to 88, many pages don't log in properly (like google). So I stopped updating. Recently I started to feel anxious and I looked for the reason. I found that it was because the "dom.webdriver.enabled" parameter was removed, from here https://stackoverflow.com/questions/67323487/selenium-w-firefox-88-changes-to-navigator-webdriver

I would like to ask for a follow-up solution after this parameter has been removed. Is there a new parameter to replace it? Is there another way to fix it and make the page login properly? Or does mozilla consider it normal to not be able to log in and forbid the use of marionette invisibly?

I would like to know the exact answer, thanks.

FF was configured for https only and should of provided a message at the very least but it continued to configure the non https.

This is a critical fault as it clear says in the configuration https only. See the screen capture enclosed

Hello,

this knowledge base article (Remove the Other Bookmarks folder from the Bookmarks Toolbar) claims that you can display the Other Bookmarks folder on the toolbar since Firefox 85 but it seems to be a lie.

In the screenshots down below, you can see my current settings. The Other Bookmarks folder is missing although my settings are correct.

How can I display the Other Bookmarks folder on the toolbar in Firefox? Thanks for your help!

About using these firefox support pages and this search feature specifically.


the more words I add the more results are returned there seems to be no intellegence in selecting the appropriate answer, it all appears keyword driven.

This is not beneficial in reaching the correct answer. At times I will go to 'Ask your question' because of this and I can guess many of us do. No one wants to read un-related articles!

I would expect to see the results lessen by adding more keywords to a refinement which I can then see in real time.

At times I would like to search for an add-on that I can not "Phrase" the description of as such:

'I am looking for an addon that will download every page I visit for a predetermined time automatically and make those downloaded pages accessible to the open tabs from which those downloads came from so that I can have the cache on hard drive"

I don't know how to call this thing by a search term and need help with this one question really.

I would have other question also such as how to build an add-on.

Is there a forum specifically related to these add-ons only This forum should be specific to the types of add-on we see in Firefox and Google Chrome for developers and enthisiasts.

I see no link to such a forum in the addons page though there is the link to Manage add-ons; or, is this the best place for such questions?

Thanks in advance!

When syncing between devices, the location of bookmarks in subfolders is not remembered

I use Firefox on 3 devices: - a PC at home (Win 10, FF standard instalation), - an Android phone (Xiaomi Mi 9T) - a PC at work (Win7) with the Firefox portable version.

I have the latest, stable, up-to-date versions of Firefox on all my devices.

The problem is when I save a bookmark on one of the computers at work or at home, and then the devices synchronize. Bookmarks between computers do not remember their position in the bookmark folders and are saved in the main folder.

I have already performed all the steps based on the instructions in this article, but the problem persists. ([https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1270667])

So, I have installed a search engine addon BUT I don't like the default shortcut keyword. I know I can add a custom, new one, but as far as I know, I can't remove/replace the default one.

Why isn't it possible to create a custom search string like on mobile Firefox in the first place? It would make things so much easier... :/
