Previously I've been able to select search suggestions using the keyboard when typing into a search bar. As of a few days ago this no longer works on some sites like YouTube, but does work on others like Google. The issue is not to do with num lock or scroll lock, and my browser is up to date (124.0.1 Ubuntu Snap version).

There is "show in folder" menu for file in downloads. And it will launch my file manager at the parent folder for the selected download file.

There are so many files in my downloads folder, so i would like the specific file to be autoselected. My file manager support this if i pass the filename as parameter in the commandline.

However, seems that firefox only pass the parent folder path to my file manager in the "show in folder". However can i customize firefox so that it will pass the full file name to my file manager when i click "show in folder", and my file manager will open the parent folder with the specific file autoselected.

Hello there,

I like Firefox to ask me what to do each time with PDF documents, so I've set the action for PDF to "Always Ask". However, I've noticed that when I load a page with a PDF document embedded inline, and I select "Open with Firefox" on the dialog box, the document always opens in a new tab.

In other words: there are certain PDF documents that get displayed inline when the action for PDF is "Open in Firefox"; but those same documents get opened in new tabs when set to "Always Ask".

Is possible for Firefox to display PDFs inline while asking me what to do each time?

Thanks in advance!

I'm using the current Firefox-ESR for Linux x86_64. Under Settings > Privacy and Security > Cookies and Site Data > Manage Exceptions, I blocked http:174.138.51.92 and https:174.138.51.92 several weeks ago. But Manage Data shows 10 cookies last used 45 minutes ago, and Remove Selection for these cookies fails (incidentally retaining the "last used" value), even when repeated multiple times as fast as I can mouse the select, then Remove Selection, then Save Changes then Manage Data .

How can I delete these cookies and site data? And why does it fail for this site and this site only? And how can I block them permanently, short of black-holing that site in /etc/hosts?

I use synching between phone and desktop. I deleted some bookmarks on my phone and synced phone and desktop Firefox. I would expect that the deleted bookmarks also disappear on my desktop FF under "Mobile Bookmarks", but nothing changes. Worse than that, after I added one more bookmark on my phone and synced, the deleted bookmarks showed up again on my phone. It seems the not deleted bookmarks on desktop are transferred again to my phone. This is actually not what I want...

I used to be able to show speed dial bookmarks on my home page, as many rows as I had spd dial bkmks, like 30 or so. Now I cant even get speed dial to show anywhere anyway. I really want it on my home page, so when I launch FF or open a new tab, it auto shows all my speed dial bkmks. Please restore this functionality. We should not need some special extension to do this. It should be an option off the Settings tab

When activating reading mode with a PDF file, the content of the file is not reproduced in the reading mode window. To see the full content, you must go to the end of the PDF file in normal mode before activating reading mode, see this implementation video : http://share.emmabuntus.org/Accessibility/Problem_size_document_pdf_firefox_narrate.mp4

Do you think this comes from our PDF file which was generated from LibreOffice with the standard options?

After updating server libraries, tinymce popup windows are disconnected from their parent

This one really caught me by surprise! I have an internal Django database system. Staff typically use Firefox or Chrome to access it from Linux or Windows machines. As part of this system, it uses Grappelli library which in turn uses TinyMCE V3.5.8. Specifically, in a text box TinyMCE provides advanced editing and fonting. Allows the user to embed links or images. This system was working fine on Django 2.2. My provider (Python Anywhere) retired the server image I was running on, so I updated everything to Django 4.2 on their latest "haggis" system image. Everything seemed to transfer over without any errors - at first. In fact, it was a week later somebody tried to change a font colour by clicking the popup button that opens a colour picker. That pop up looks blank! (its not, the HTML is there but without the custom CSS nothing is visible)

In developer mode on Firefox or Chrome I can see what the problem is: The popup is disconnected from the parent. The parents CSS and classes - specifically tinyMCE - is not present. So its missing the styling and JS to operate. One of the first things the popup JS does is copy in the tinyMCE and tinymce classes from the parent. But they are not there, in fact .opener is null and .parent is stripped down.

What is really weird is on my test server, where I tested everything before updating the live server, it works! The test server uses Django's "runserver" to run a very simple (unsecure) http server just to test code. Whereas the live server is locked on HTTPS.

What confuses me is I don't see any console log messages that would indicate the browser decided to "protect" me. How can I figure out what is going on? Or disable this feature for a test?

I am writing this on my Dev machine using the browser I test with, so I shall try to paste in tech info below.

Just to reiterate, in this browser I can have my test server in one tab, my live server in another tab, test server popup works; live server popup does not.

Thanks in Advance, Richard

Can someone please tell me how to answer questions asked, in emails to me, receoved from support helpers. In ~6 emails received so far, my only response option looks like clicking the "Mark It as Solved" button...I can't see how to answer, for example, that I'm using Debian Buster, with KDE. Also, jonzn4SUSE asked me to "see screenshot" of his SUSE distribution, but I can't see that image, nor a file attachment. Thanks again.

Hello, I've already contacted you because of a problem that I encounter with the functioning of my browser that cracked without explanation. The problem was that I was working on inpravate navigation and I can't find back the internet pages that I was watching. I don't know if there is a possibility to reach them back and I'm afraid I'll can't get them if I turn my computer of.

I need a quick answer because I'm afraid that my computer could crash because it's lit since a while.

Thank you for your answer.

Hello,

Sorry to contact you again but my problem is still not solved and it's urgent.

I still doesn't have turned my computer off in case that you could help me find my pages back. I have no one else to help me with this problem and I deeply need the websites I was surfing on. I'm not sure I can find them by myself and I don't have much time for that.
