cmd+numbers on alphanumeric keys should switch to respective tab (cmd+1 to 1st tab, cmd+5 to fifth...). With CZ keyboard layout on MacOS, cmd+1 does NOT switch to first tab, it Zooms In instead. No other browser (Edge, Safari, Opera, Orion) exhibits this behaviour. Other numbers work as expected.

FF 98.0.2 on Monterey 12.2.1.

How do I fix this? Thanks.

Just now, as I was in the middle of something, Firefox popped up a usage tip about tabs. I find this disruptive. Is there a way to turn these off? If I want to know how to do something, I'll look in the help.

It's fine when you create a new feature to display a tab when I first launch after an upgrade, or to have the Help menu show a Latest Features item, but please don't interrupt my work with pop-ups.

For the moment, I don't see anything in Preferences about this. Is there an about:config setting I can add to suppress this feature?

When I run Firefox in troubleshooting mode I can log into citibank. When I return to normal I cannot. I've turned one extension after another off. None of them seem to be causing the problem.

This all started when I created a container for Banking. it has been a problem ever since.

The confirmation for whether to open a link in its default container has disappeared - how can I turn it back on?

Pretend I have examplesite.com set to default to my "example sites" container.

If I opened a "personal sites" container tab and typed in examplesite.com, it would ask me if I want to open it in that container or the default container.

It no longer does this, but instead just changes it to the default container. I don't know if it is because of an update or something else. I've looking in the settings, but can't find anything about this.

I frequently open certain sites in multiple containers, but still the majority of the usage is in a single container, so I have them set to a default. Currently, however, I have no way to open these sites in anything but their default container. I am using Firefox Developer Edition 107.0b9 (64-bit), but I also see it in regular Firefox 106.0.3 (64-bit).

Hopefully there is a configuration that I can set somewhere! Thanks :)

I recently replaced most of my Firefox Homepage Site Icons with custom icons. (No easy task... loking at you Mozilla)... :)

Now that I have them replaced, whenever I start Firefox the custom site icons take a long time to load.

The previous default site icons appeared to be cached and I was hoping I could force my custom site icons to cache locally to improve loading times.

Hello,

Firefox is my default browser. I downloaded a Medicare form and the document was not legible (letters, numbers, odd symbols, etc.). The Medicare chat rep suggested I try another browser. I opened Safari and downloaded the same form and it was legible. What should I do to enable Firefox to produce legible downloads of Medicare forms?

Thanks

Hi,

I use text expander and google forms as a large part of my workflow, and whenever I need to write anything additional in the text that has been imported from text expander, the browser shifts the text entry screen to the top. I then cannot see anything above where I am typing.

I have added a Loom video below so you can better understand what I'm talking about. https://www.loom.com/share/2a95d5af9adb43709885cc12e4cd8185 Loom Video

How do I stop the "snap to grid" function when dragging pictures from the window to the desktop on Mac? whenever I drag a Picture to the desktop, it's like the "snap to grid" option on the computer is on. The pictures won't stack if i drag them to the exact same place. Ive checked every preference option on both the Mac computer and the Firefox settings but there is nothing about disabling it. The "snap to grid" function is disabled on the computer itself and images will stack if dragged from another browser like Chrome. It only does it with Firefox. Any help would be appreciated.

I can't save an image with an asterisk in the filename when saving from my Firefox browser. I used to be able to, but now any asterisk I add to the filename just vanishes like I didn't type it at all. I can change the file name in other ways, like adding words. I can still save from Chrome, so it's a Firefox issue, and a recent update. Help!!!

Firefox on macOS: Video in full screen hides the system tray on other displays

Hello, it‘s been a while I‘m having issues with playing the full screen videos on multiple displays setup.

Summary: When I start the full screen video, the system tray on other displays disappears. I can display it by activating different app on the other display but when I want to play the full screen video on one display and work in other Firefox window on another display, the system tray is not visible.

Version: 108.0.2 (64-bit) and many older versions.

OS: macOS 13.0.1

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce: Open the Firefox window. Open a new tab and move this new tab on another display. In the first tab, play some video in full screen mode. (E.g. some YouTube video.)

Actual Results: The system tray is not visible on all displays without the full screened video.

Expected behavior: The system tray is visible on all displays without the video playing in full screen mode.

Workaround: Firstly opening the tab with video in full screen mode (⌃⌘F) and then entering the full screen video ensures the visibility of system tray on other displays.

The system tray is visible also when working with other apps but Firefox. (Not possible when need to work in other browser window.)

Do you have this issue as well, how should we proceed?

So when I have a new tab open, type something in the omnibox, and then switch a tab and go back to that previous new tab page, it selects everything that's in the omnibox. See attached gif.

I'd rather have it just stay at the rightmost position instead of selecting everything so that I can keep typing instead of having to press the right arrow key again. Is there a setting to change this functionality?

All the articles headings on ru.wikipedia.org have wrong encoding but the main text looks good.

I tried disabling "Allow pages to choose their own fonts" in the FF setting but I couldn't match the fonts using my systems ones so pages in Russian language don't look weirdly formatted.
