The following I wrote to initially question why showing dom properties didn't work at all, but I only had tried it on an textarea example on developer.mozilla.org so far. Turns out, on right this support forum's textarea I'm right now writing in, it does work. Could I make it work on developer.mozilla.org, too, like it works here on support.mozilla.org? That would be useful to inspect the html and javascript examples on there.

Original planned question: I very recently updated to Firefox 91.3.0esr (64-Bit), and I restarted working with the developer tools.

As far as I can recall it was possible to see an overview of an html page's element's functions somewhere in the developer tools. I tried "Untersuchen (Q)" ("Examine" or is it "Inspect" in English) on the textarea (in https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/HTMLTextAreaElement ). This openend the developer tools panel, the html was shown and the textarea-elemtent highlighted. There I right clicked and selected "Dom-Eigenschaften anzeigen" (View dom properties). The console opened, and showed: inspect($0, true) Restricted { }

(I want to access all the scroll properties of the textarea, and possible functions to scroll the textarea using javascript.)

Under the settings page of the developer tools -> standard developer tools -> I actived the checkbox "DOM", and restarted the browser (using the restart option under about:profiles).

Hi, when I use Firefox on this machine, the bookmark sync doesn't work as expected. Instead of maintaining the order of the other devices' bookmark toolbar, it is ordering the non-folder bookmarks before the foldered bookmarks. How can I make it so the bookmark toolbar is the same across all devices? I have tried deleted places.sqlite and backupbookmarks folder.

OS: Debian 11

Thank you!

On some sites (e.g. Nottinghampost.com) left click does not open links/ pages. It shows that ti is a link (hand mouse pointer) but will only open with centre click in a new tab. I see that this is a problem that others have had in the past.

I have run Firefox in troubleshooting/ safe mode and problem still happens, so not an extension/ theme issue. I have rebooted the computer and I also always clear cookies/browsing history etc when I exit Firefox, that has not helped. The page links work properly in Chrome. I have also done a virus scan (Panda AV)

I am using current Firefox 91 on Win 10 Pro 64, recently updated but I believe the Firefox issue existed before update.

The issue has existed all this week and possibly longer.

Websites on my Firefox are not appearing correctly. I think this started when I was playing around with the Privacy and Security settings. I changed the settings back, but the issue persists. Sorry I cannot explain this issue more clearly... Please see images. The first shows an example of how websites are appearing with my Firefox now. The second, using Safari, is an example of how websites used to look - and how I want them to look again. Thank you! I miss my old Firefox.

Hello,

I'm using Firefox 91.4.1esr (64-bit) from Debian repositories on Bullseye. Every time I open Firefox, a window with a greeting message appears ("Say hello to a new Firefox"), and it doesn't matter if, as asked by that window, I choose a theme or not. Is this issue related to my settings? Is this a Debian issue? Is it possible to stop that window from reappearing?

Thanks in advance. And many thanks for making Firefox (I've been using it for so many years I can't recall when I tried it for the first time).

Since the last update (91.0.1 ) my urls are no longer caching in the address bar. I used to have a nice list cached of the primary sites I hit but no longer?

Always use private browsing mode > off Remember browsing and download history > on Remember search and form history > on Clear history when Firefox closes > off

If I hit SHIFT + ^ I can see my history but it is recent history only. How can this be changed back to caching my frequently visited sites?

Forever you've been apply to type anything into the Google search bar on the home screen, but not anymore.

Now whateveryou type automatically appear up in the tab line with https// infront of it , then of course it comes back with ...cannot find that web address !!

I'm not looking for a web address, i'm searching a subject matter..

This change is SO annoying I'm now seriously thinking of dumping my much loved Firefox for something which works better.

Why isn't there the 'option' to do search without it 'assuming' you're looking for a web address ?


So Annoying and frustrating, whoever dreamt this idea up....?
