Hello,

I got the following problem. When I shutdown my PC and let's say have 20+ Tabs open from a study session, after booting again all these tabs are opened when I stat firefox.

In many cases this may be the intended behavior, but I really do not like it. I would like that my Firefox behaves in the following manor:

At any given time, when I open my browser for the first time my default setting is shown. 

At any given time, when I open my browser, no older tabs from a session before should be opened

Thank for help in advance I am aware that this might be the stupidest question ever and I have to jump through hoops to make it happen.

Not a serious bug, but firefox warns about cancelling downloads when trying to switch profiles without actually exiting the browser. Please take a look at the attached image.

If I somehow click on "Cancel 1 Download", it does nothing, just launches the profile I am launching. So the warning actually means nothing, and should be removed.

Thanks.

Using Firefox 79.0 (64-it) and fedora 32 OS I've noticed there is not an option to minimize the browser window anymore. I use to be able to right-click on the menu-bar and one of the options would be to minimize the Firefox window. Only options now are radio buttons for Menu Bar and Bookmarks Toolbar. Is this a bug are intentional can this functionality be restored? Regards.

I've got multiple clients set up to sync via FF sync. Some are older, some are newer.

However, looking at the newest client (set up ~2 weeks ago), I noticed something: It only shows a browser history up to approx. one year in the past. I've checked other clients. My oldes client goes back to ~2016, which is 4 years form now. I know my oldes client is older than 2016, so there has to be more.

Does FF Sync skip older entries? IMHO I'd have to see the exact same history on my older client than on my newer client. That is not the case. Any ideas?

When I zoom in (with ctrl+= for example) images are rendered with heavy interpolation / blurring. Usually I want to see individual pixels as discrete, blur-less squares.

Is there any way to change it so Firefox renders without interpolation? I am using Firefox 71.0 Operating system: Linux Mint 19.3

For quite some time now I've had keyword.enabled set to false in my about:config because I don't like having the address bar try to autocomplete or turn things into search, when I do a ctrl-l.

I do like that I am still able to use ctrl-k to do a search when I need to. This would place a ? at the start of the field and whatever I type gets sent to search.

In a recent upgrade, ctrl-k still places the ? at the start of the address bar but doesn't send things to search. Instead, it now behaves as if I did a ctrl-l and typed in a bad URL.

I'm on Firefox 80 (on Fedora 32) but I can't be exactly sure which upgrade brought this change in behavior.

Is there a way to get the old behavior back? ctrl-l to enter a URL, ctrl-k to search.

When I look at Firefox support from Preferences in Firefox, there is a section that states "Firefox Updates This is where you can check your update history or change update settings for Firefox." The problem is Firefox does not provide for any way to change update settings.

I'm tired of being in the middle of a search, or interacting with some web site,and suddenly Firefox says that "IT" will shut down to process the update. I don't want Firefox to decide when it will restart, that needs to be my choice, or be a part of a normal reboot. I don't like that Firefox considers me to be an utter fool and incapable of deciding when it's O.K. for my workflow to be interrupted.

So, please allow the user to decide when a Firefox update will be applied. Popup announcing the availability of an update with a clear option to restart now, or restart later.

Give your users some credit for being smart.

Thank you.

FF 66.x and prior allowed me to block all cookies, and then manage exceptions via an allowlist of websites. This no longer works in FF 80.x with its fancier 'Enhanced Tracking Protection.' Either they're all blocked, or are all let in :(. I reported my issue in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1662335. Thought I should raise the topic here as well to see if there're others who've observed the same.
