I have an external monitor connected to my Macbook. When I play a youtube video in full screen on my external monitor, as I surf the web using firefox on my Macbook screen, the dock and taskbar disappears on the Macbook's screen. Does anyone know why this is happening? This is midly inconvenient, and does not happen when I use Google Chrome. Thanks.

Hola me parece interesante la folosofía de Mozila y me gustaría ayudar traduciendo algunos artículos al español, pero no me queda claro los pasos a seguir. Traté de contactar a uno de los líderes de proyecto mas no sé porqué me redireccionó a otro lado. Por otra parte el vinculo para iniciarse en SUMO parecía estar roto. Sería de ayuda si me escriben directamente al correo o pudiera ponerse en contacto conmigo alguno de los lideres de proyectos a ver cómo puedo ayudar en el proceso.

I am currently using two separate profiles for Firefox browser - one personal and one for work. I have both open at all times on one machine. When I click on a link from Slack (for work), it always opens in my personal Firefox browser which it usually cannot open since I need to be logged into my work account.

How do I set it up so that the link will open in the profile that was most recently used vs the default profile?

In the support article about notifications: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/push-notifications-firefox it states: Sites can also use Push to update data in the background even without showing you a notification.

What data does this include?

I'm reluctant to use these notifications at all until I know what they could change without telling me.

I am running Firefox v76.0.1 64bit on an iMac.

Suddenly in Gmail emails accessed by the web interface are showing no images with the broken image link, some are showing around 10% of the images and others are showing all the images. This suddenly started earlier this week.

I have tried safe mode with no plugins and still exactly as above. I have tried turning Advanced Protection off and again no change. The attached screenshot is an example of the problem.

If I access the emails using Safari then I have no issue.

I won't check a box that opts me into observational and INTERVENTIONAL studies that I won't even be aware that I'm in since I don't look every 5 minutes at the settings and may do things like the evil sort of one fb ? did that changed your emotions.

That's a great example of why I moved to Firefox from Chrome and am wary of Facebook.

I'd be more than happy to check a box that says: "Please offer me any/all studies I may be eligible for including add'l questions to see if I'm eligible, with a reasonable stab at assent (not even informed consent). And of course whether data is anonymous (truly, as in after the study even if you wanted to you couldn't figure out which person was which), or not. Not anonymous may be fine....depending on the study. My very best, really, you're great....AND I'd be happy to discuss, advise (see below)...my 'toolbox' isn't simply biomedical. Darren


(Just me being pedantic now ignore this as you wish: And you say "study" ... I'm a researcher (sometimes)...IRB, grants, peer review, publications. Research is the "creation of generalizable knowledge." Is that what you're doing? I suspect you're doing more "quality improvement" where you figure out what works better for you...and SOMETIMES that is generalizeable knowledge (i.e., certain colors make people happy in every browser not Firefox specific), but do you publish it as peer reviewed research? Now, it's TOTALLY FINE if you don't and it's QI....but would specify that and not call it studies...call it...evaluating improvements or whatever. The use of the word 'study' and 'research' drive me nuts since when we talk to people about actual 'studies' and 'research' they conflate that with marketing evaluations of what makes us by more or which candidate we're interested in or how to sell things to us.)

Since updating to Mac OS Catalina, Firefox is displaying some text/fonts on websites as boxed question marks. I have tried some of the suggested fixes including: 1. lowering the security.sandbox.content.level to a value of 2, 1, or even 0, but no success. 2. Type about:preferences#content<enter> in the address bar. Across from fonts and colors, press the Advanced button. On the bottom, turn on Allow Web Sites To Choose Their Own. When checked - The boxed question marks appear. 3. The problem is only happening in Firefox. No problem in Safari. (see image)

Thanks for your help and assistance
