Hello,

When I select text in Firefox the selection is not highlighted. The selection itself does work (e.g. deleting a selected word) but is not visible. The problem occurs in all fields where text can be entered, so the URL space, the search field but also text field on a page like this one. The strange thing is that the problem also occurs in Thunderbird.

I am using Ubuntu 18.04.6 LTS, Firefox 99.0 and Thunderbird 91.8.1

Right click Menus and Bookmark folders spacing

Hi, I've just spent all day trying to follow all the different suggestions here regarding these issues. Adding all sorts of things to the userChrome CSS but 95% of the suggestions have no effect at all [I'm seriously non-technical, so I have no idea if I'm doing it correctly though...probably not] The only thing that I can change is the Tab Height...nothing else changes regardless of what numbers I put in there. The only way I've been able to make the Bookmarks folders usable at all is to enable Compact mode via about:config. But that actually makes it way too compact now...from one extreme to the other. At least it's usable now...so not the end of the world, but the right click menu still has way too much space between every entry [Compact mode made no difference to that at all]. I don't know how to make a screenshot of those menus :) so I took a couple of pics of the screen...can someone please show me what to add to the CSS file to make these ridiculously big spaces between the menu items way smaller...like they used to be before this Proton came in? I tried tons of things that people said to add to the CSS to fix this menu spacing thing but none of them changed anything. I'll include the CSS file that I have below. Thanks a lot

ps: for some reason the pics always come out sideways here

Is Firefox no longer reading *local* VTT files?

I have a website that has MP4 video in a HTML5 video player, with subtitles done in the WebVTT format (*.vtt). I just noticed that, when testing my pages locally on my C drive, the subtitles no longer appear on the movies. They do appear on the website (thankfully). Does this mean that lately Firefox has dropped support for local VTT files? Chrome has always ignored local VTTs, for some reason, which is why - until now - I used Firefox to test subtitles off the C drive. Note: If I link the local page to the VTT file on my website, subtitles still do not appear in Firefox. It could be something else, of course, so just need to know if VTTs are now unloadable locally in FF.

Hi I am using firefox in arch linux 5.17.9-zen1-1-zen kernel and after the new firefox update I can't right click in firefox. Whenever I right click the context menu shows up for 1 sec and then it automatically takes me to the previous page. Click on the image automatically prompts me to download it although I don't want to download the image. Is there anything I can do to fix the issue ?

I could'nt play Netflix or Amazon videos on my Firefox browser, I have an old MacBook pro OS 10.9.5 (it's the last operating system I can use.. I have photoshop 6 and it won't work on any further OSs) I went to update Firefox, was not sure what version it was. and my computer asked" replace current version of Firefox with New" , I said yes, it did.. and then after I downloaded it, I noticed there was a circle with a slash going thru it on Firefox Icon, when I tried to open new firefox , it bascically said will not work with this OS. I could not go back and lost firefox alltogher, which also had my prefernces and autofill passwords etc. I went to Mozilla site to see if I could find an older version of firefox.. This is what I found : Firefox version 78 was the last supported Firefox version for Mac users of OS X 10.9 Mavericks, OS X 10.10 Yosemite and OS X 10.11 El Capitan. These users were moved to the Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR) channel by an application update.

I downloaded it and it said It will not work on my OS, So, How can I basically get the same firefox I had or whatever the last version that works on my computer..and best case senario save my prefernces and passwords, which maybe might have been saved somehow when I tried to change in the begining .. thanks so much for your help.

Operating System Ubuntu 20.04.4LTS on AMD® Ryzen 3 pro 3200g 64bit processor. Firefox Web Browser version 100.0.2 (64-bit)

The method I can reproduce sound distortion:

I have clear sound playback through both system HDMI speakers or if earphones are plugged in, verified using the Ubuntu Sound Output test left/right (without distortion)

Then if I open a normal Firefox window and listen to YouTube video for example I have no distortion, if I however open I private window, say to access training material on Microchip University site I suddenly have distorted playback.

Please advise why private window opened suddenly distorts my output sound. Sound suspicious.

Hi folks,

I've asked this same question of Microsoft, as I cannot tell if this is a quirk in Firefox 100.0.2, or in Windows 10 Home, or something to do with what they put in the water here (besides flouride)...

Over the last few days I've had to reinstall Office on this Windows 10 Home system, and had a Firefox update to 100.0.2 as well. Everything working fine up through last night -- URL shortcuts on the desktop would open Firefox (default browser) just fine.

Shut down. Cold boot this morning. Manually open Firefox as usual. Double-click on desktop URL shortcuts (or right-click, Open) gets a real quick hourglass and then nothing. No error, no browser tab.

So I checked: default browser still set to Firefox; .URL filetype still set to "Internet Browser."

I toggled the default browser to Edge, and the links work just fine. Same links. No changes to them.

Toggle it back to the much more privacy-protecting Firefox and... they won't work.

This seems spooky.

Note that the desktop icons for these shortcuts correctly show either the Firefox icon, or the logo/icon for the web page itself (ie, Google Maps). And the toggle of default browser did NOT update the icons.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

How can I get rid of add-on HP Wolf Security Extension. It came with the "regular" HP updates (HP Sure Click included) and it has seriously messed up my PC yesterday, Virus attacks included. Windows 10. HP service not available weekends.

So far I have managed to uninstall HP Sure Click and HP Wolf Security (at least most of these pests) with all regular and special methods (was very difficult as the regular uninstall process did not remove these pests). I have uninstalled various Apps: Chrome, Zoom, Skype, Firefox. cleaned my PC, run windows troubleshooter and maintenance and of course Bitdefender various times. Restarted PC uncountable times and....reinstalled fresh ones and yet:

....Add on HP Wolf is there again in Firefox. It can not be removed with any of the regular methods (have tried them all, see forums and available manuals etc.) ....I have managed to get rid of it in Chrome. One little success story at least. ....HP Sure Click is silent now, even so I expect it to loom around somewhere in my PC. Some files could not be deleted (not even manually with power deinstallation)

I have not yet deinstalled HP Sure or the HP client Security Manager and I do not have the IT skills to work in Bios - directly in the boot sector.

I have not reset windows which I try to avoid - very very very.....last option.

HP Wolf Security and HP Sure Click are real pests. They hooked themselves onto my PC without my permission on Friday evening as part of the regular HP updates. When browsing on the internet I was flooded with ad pop ups and spam AND virus / trojan attacks. It even tried to shut down my virus programme Bitdefender, which I managed to stop and it fortunately worked very well and could contain more damage.

I will call HP tomorrow in their office hours and give them a hard time.

I would greatly appreciate your help and your ideas. Hopefully one of you had the same experience and managed to get rid of this pest.

Thanks in advance for your help and ideas and please dont install these pests!!!

When I click on a link to a PDF in a website, expecting it to open, it does not open. Instead, I am asked to save it to a file on my computer (apparently more or less selected at random). To open it and read it I have to navigate to that file. Not a terrible problem, but bothersome. I imagine I must have inadvertently told Firefox to behave this way.
