Hi,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

Issue When opening a link from any other app, the Firefox switches to another virtual desktop if there's an existing Firefox window open.

Reproduce the Issue

  1. Set Firefox to default browser
  2. On Windows 10, open 2 virtual desktops. Use Task View button in Taskbar or use keyboard shortcut Win + Tab and then click on New Desktop. Now you should see 'Desktop 1' and 'Desktop 2', if Task View is opened again.
  3. On Desktop 2, open a new Firefox window.
  4. Switch back to Desktop 1 from Task View.
  5. Open any link (E.g.: https://www.mozilla.org/) from any other app like MS Word, MS Teams, etc.
  6. The virtual desktop would switch to Desktop 2 and open the link on exiting Firefox window.

Question Is there a way to open the link on same virtual desktop in a new window?

Improvement - If it already doesn't exist. Instead of opening the link in existing Firefox window on Desktop 2, open a new Firefox window on Desktop 1 to open the link.

Just to serve notice that I will no longer be using Firefox as for some reason it no longer reopens ios full screen. It is hugely inept every time I go to Firefox, which I like, to have to open in fullscreen. Why have you done this. I will bet I am not the only one frustrated. Also: why not support line. Communities are a gross cop-out and waste my time. I want to speak to the company and expect them to provide me with a service: not amateurs.

Hey guys, this thing is bugging me and I've tried pretty much all about:config settings (+ refreshing firefox profile) I could find here to no avail. FF works fine, actually it works great, all links open in tabs, never seen a new window in normal operation except... I have it pinned on taskbar (main, monitor 1, you can't pin on secondary display) and it is all cool. However I have FF on secondary display and clicking on the FF taskbar icon opens a new empty FF window instead of just focusing FF. If FF is in main display, all works. To illustrate:

1. FF set to show on main display, clicking FF icon on the taskbar launches FF if not running or brings FF on top if running. Good

2. FF set to show on secondary display, clicking FF icon on the taskbar (main display) launches FF if not running (and opens it on the secondary display) or launches new empty FF window if FF is already running!. Clicking running FF icon on the secondary taskbar correctly activates FF

This is quite annoying as like 1/3 of the times I intend to bring FF up front I instead open a blank FF window which I need to close and click again on the correct FF icon.

Hi, I use the Outlook web interface on firefox. I keep running into a strange bug. I'll start typing an e-mail message, and all of a sudden, my keystrokes are interpreted as commands instead of text. For instance, I'll type a word with an "n" in it, like "and", and somehow after I type the "a", the interface starts grabbing keystrokes away from the text field, so when I hit "n", it creates a new message, and the "d" ends up going into the text field of this new message. It's very frustrating, because I can't type more than a couple of sentences before the message and interface get screwed up. I've seen this misbehavior for a while, through several updates of firefox. No other web app behaves this way.

There is a very descriptive thread of the problem: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/all/working-with-outlook-web-interface-on-firefox/4212cac3-4be3-4295-b325-369ea3d46f2a?page=1

This has been happening to me for many months and through many browser updates. I/ going to have to get rid of firefox soon

Hi, Firefox Accounts (Fxa) support TOPT (Google authenticator etc) 2FA, which is pretty good, however it would be great if you could support Webauthn/FIDO2 (Yubikey etc).

There was a Bugzilla bug for this, https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1464888 opened 4 years ago, however about a year ago it was closed wontfix because it "is not currently on our roadmap"

Which seems like a really bad idea? Given that most security people, browsers and OSs are saying "passwordless is the future", and FIDO2 is how that will happen. And even passwordless aside, FIDO2 is a more robust and generally easier to use option than even TOTP apps

This morning, firefox updated when I opened it. Now, since the latest update, when I click on a link in an email, firefox, my default browser- opens, but does not navigate to the page- it just sits there, empty and lifeless.

   I close firefox, and when I open the browser from the start menu, it says it is still running, and I have to choose the option to close the old browser before it will open.
  I have disabled add-ons, tried disabling hardware acceleration, even resetting FireFox, and none of it helps.
   This problem did not exist at all yesterday.

Hi there,

I've been searching around for an answer to this for a while and have as yet been unable to find anything.

I have a multi-monitor set up, with one of my displays being above the main display, for some reason whenever I have Firefox, and specifically only Firefox, maximised, I get a bar that's either solid white, or has a portion of the browsers task bar appear at the bottom of the display above. If I put a video into full screen, or the browser into full screen, the bar disappears, likewise if I take the window out of maximised then it also disappears.

The only thing that I can think that might be contributing to this would be the fact that two displays have a different resolution, the main display being 2560 x 1440 and the top display being 1920 x 1080.

Any ideas to try to resolve this would be appreciated! Thank you to whoever reads this, and thank you for any possible advice to attempt to resolve this issue!
