Hello good people, This is rather a request for advice than an issue report. I' ve learned about the facebook container add-on and wanted to know if there is a need for it if someone was making sure to exclusively open facebook.com in its own profile. Say you set up a profile(from about:profiles) namely "BIg Brothers" for notorious trackers like google, facebook , twitter etc so they can perpetually track each other with simple rules to observe like : - Never open an external(shared) link - Never access any other website through that profile.

Is there a particular feature the add-on is bringing up that the native interface is missing ? The other reason is add-ons are great but they tend to bloat the system impeding the browsing experience. I am the kind of guy who opens 7 concurrent tabs each running heavy js code so the lighter the better.

Thank you in advance,

Dom

Firefox 77.0.1 address bar seem broken. Won't show common sites without deleting anything in the URL bar, no down arrow

I had set the about:config settings after 75 came out to fix the address bar. Today I got 77.0.1 and now the address bar seems broken again. When I mouse over it, there is no longer a down arrow to click and show my common sites. If I click in the bar and then delete everything, the list of common sites appears. If I click away and click back into the blank address bar, now I have to hit the down arrow to get the list to appear. I need a way to get the down arrow back so the address bar works as expected.

These config options are all set to false:

   browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus
   browser.urlbar.update1
   browser.urlbar.update1.interventions
   browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips
   browser.urlbar.update1.view.stripHttps

I do not use the majority of keyboard controls in Firefox-- only Ctrl+F. Lately, I've noticed that using Ctrl+I in editor windows also pops up the Page Info window, which I have never used on purpose and am perfectly comfortable accessing via Firefox's menubar.

I have been searching for over an hour, and every Firefox add-on that I can find to fix this problem has been removed.

Ideally, I would like to be able to configure all of my keyboard shortcuts, but practically I will settle for being able to disable Ctrl-B, Ctrl-I, and Ctrl-U.

I had about 15 add-ons and for some reason one Firefox install on my computer deleted 13 add-ons without me asking it to or giving any permission to do so. I looked up on my other computer, it still had 15 add-ons and then Firefox sync deleted those 13 as well, now I can't remember which add-ons I had, I really need all those extensions back.

Can this be undone, or at least is there a log file showing which extensions were deleted so I can get them back please? This is really frustrating, I've no idea why they were deleted.

I'd really appreciate your help, thank you.

First step of changing primary email is setting up secondary email. However: NOTE: Before you can view or make changes to this section, you will need to verify your email address.

I can't do that, because email domain changed, which is why I want to change the primary email in the first place. Moreover, this email address was verified a year ago. Therefore I don't receive verification code and my account gets locked.

Is there anything I can do to chance primary email to the correct one without verifying the currently stated, that I have no access to?

Please see attached image. Whenever I try to install an extension on firefox quantum 68.2.0 ESR it simply shows a greyed out button I cannot press. The only article I can find on this offers the solution that it can be fixed using another plugin (which I can't install for the same reason...)

Hi! Chrome based browsers (like chromium or Vivaldi) permit to obtain 96KHz or even 192KHz float 32bit audio output. Firefox stuck at float32le 48KHz. This is not sufficient for me. i have a Linux LinuxMint 20 on a STRIX Z270G audio chip @ 96KHz and headsets like Sennheiser HD650 and GRADO RS1e so able to perfectly perceive the effects of harmonics up to frequency my chip can produce (96KHz band pass).

Question: Is possible in Firefox 78 for Linux to change the max frequency from 48KHz to 96KHz maintaining the float32le setup?

Thank you to all advices!

Hello. From time to time, when using firefox I find that firefox-bin process uses very high cpu process (on top command output it shows even more that 100% (i don't understand those specs)) It doesen't seem related to any specific website. I close tabs one by one and it remains the same. Even when closing firefox window, firefox-bin remains using 100% cpu for about 1 minute or so. Then a crash message appears, and I click send report.

Any suggestions accepted. cheers. Firefox 77.0.1 MX Linux 18.3

Whenever I search for a new subject(not pre-searched) no results are shown and I get the message "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site". This happens only when I use Duckduckgo to search. I have updated firefox to the latest version, used safe mode, and cleared all my browsing history but none of them have seemed to work. I have been facing this problem since 2 days now and initially I used to get the error message "PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR". Thank you.

It seems most answers to this question tell you to clear browsing data and the autofill entries. That's not what I want.

Say you have a form that contains previous data, whether manually entered or autofilled. You want to use autofill for the entire form, but by default it doesn't overwrite fields with entries. How do I clear the form and start fresh so autofill can do its job?

I looked at the article about keyboard shortcuts, but it didn't say if there was a way to disable any of them. It seems often when I'm typing, instead of hitting the backspace key, I accidentally hit the F12 and it pops into development mode. I won't be doing any development in the near future (or probably any time) so I'd like to disable that one for convenience. Thanks
