I realize this API is relatively new; however, some coding examples would really be helpful: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Web_Authentication_API

For example, step 2 states, "Browser Calls authenticatorMakeCredential() on Authenticator". How does the browser know what the authenticator is? Specifically, how do you set up an authenticator on a mobile device that will be accessed by a bluetooth call? Is this part of the spec supported yet?

Does the developer have to code the bluetooth call to the authenticator?

There seems to be lots of general concepts with no specific steps or coding examples. Please help!

Good Morning..

The problem I am presenting is the following:

I have the newest version of firefox and since about 3 months I started to have problems slowing or almost blocking some pages that before opened without any problem. The message that a site is making firefox slow is displayed. But why? If I open these same pages for years and this has never happened .. I do not know how much firefox to have. I am a Firefox user of the first versions but honestly if I continue with these problems I will stop using them ..

For ages now I've used Firefox and to save time as i swap pages a lot doing hobbiest web development and such, I use ctrl+e. Recently, like tonight recently whenever I do control+e it's started putting ? before it. Whenever this happens any domain I enter is searched. It may be a minor thing but it seriously annoys me that this started happening. It's one of the main things I hate about MS Edge! Is there any way to stop/fix this so I can just go back to my normal lifestyle? Thanks in advance - Steve

I am using the latest Firefox 65 on macOS 10.13.6.

Issue: No audio playback can be heard through the browser. I am using a Soundcraft Signature 22 MTK multi-channel interface where audio playback is routed through channels 21/22 through Audio Midi settings in macOS.

It seems that Firefox is hard coded (and incorrectly assumes) all systems will default to channels 1-2 for audio playback.

I can tell it's defaulting to 1-2 because if I route audio to those channels in macOS and then us the USB return on those channels on my console, I can hear sound.

It should be respecting how audio is routed at the system level.

After Firefox updated to 65.0 it became terrible to use bookmarks. There are 3 ways to access them (sidebar, library->bookmarks, bookmarks item on toolbar), but all of them are inconvenient and time consuming. What was better in previous version? You only need to CTRL+B and choose one of the recent bookmarks which appeared on sidebar. But now to access recent bookmarks the shortest way is to go to library->bookmarks, which is more time-consuming. Another way to access, e.g. 15th recently bookmarked bookmark, is to go CTRL+B, expand "Other Bookmarks", and scroll whole list of bookmarks down. So why this list isn't sorted upside down by default to access recent bookmarks faster?

When Firefox updated last time (on my PC at work), it opened with a page asking me to sign into my FF account. Stupidly, I signed in. Next time I looked, the Bookmarks Toolbar looked wrong and I realized that it is what I use at home, and I couldn't get to any of my work bookmarks. I finally figured out how to get them back, but I'd really like to get it back to where it's not asking me to sign in constantly.

I'm also really upset that it changed my bookmarks. Not everyone knows how FF syncs and that signing in on the wrong computer will cause changes that will cost lost productivity.

    →  →  →  →  IT SHOULD COME WITH A WARNING BEFORE IT COMPLETES ANY ACTIONS!  ←  ←  ←  ←

In other words, before it merged my bookmarks, it should have come up with a warning that explicitly said it was about to merge bookmarks from another computer, and ask if I really want to continue - as well as with any other action signing into your account does.

Is there any way I can sign into my FF account on a FF page - but NOT on the computer, so I can see what's there? If I click to 'Disconnect' my account, will it stop asking me to sign in? How do I update the name/email address of my FF Account?

FireFox Add-Ons Product Suggestion:

It would be extremely helpful if as soon as you open Firefox Add-Ons (whether it be Explore, Extensions, Themes Or More) that there be an indicator of some sort, that you already have that FF Add-On. It is quite cumbersome to have to select each item to find out if you already have it. Many items will come up in more than one search query.

File not found

Firefox can't find the file at jar:file:///C:/Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/browser/omni.ja!/chrome/en-GB/locale/branding/browserconfig.properties.

   Check the file name for capitalisation or other typing errors.
   Check to see if the file was moved, renamed or deleted.

I have unistalled and reinstalled Firefox but the problem is still there. This is very annoying. Help please. It has only been there since the last Firefox update.
