Hello,

What is the correct command to open Firefox in the Linux-Mint 20 command line with non-maximized window?

The command

firefox -height=300 -width=500 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/test

is ignoring the size of the window. What is the correct syntax/parameter?

Sincerely

Like previous questioners, I am trying to find a keyboard shortcut for switching between Firefox windows on MacOs (in my case 10.11.6).

Lots of people suggest (Shift) Cmd + ~ (Tilde) ... but this does not work for me ... and appears to do nothing in Firefox ... but does cycle through finder windows, which means the keys themselves are working!

Any help appreciated.

I recently migrated from chrome to Firefox, i am just starting to get used to it the interface. My current setup right now is my laptop (MacBook Pro) and an external monitor (ViewSonic). Whenever i go full screen on the monitor - in Firefox - the dock on my laptop screen disappears. Is there any way of preventing this or is this an apple thing not Firefox?

Thank you for the help!

Hi

I am using on laptop Linux Mint17 and Firefox 66.0.3. Is this Firefox version current ?

Have pop ups from Facebook re being 'not logged in' 'please contiune' but it goes around and around and Facbook does not open!! Frustating.

If the FF version is old how do I update. Link to tutorial would be great. Would this fix the FB problem? Thankyou Charlie Harris downunder

Hello,

Foreword: i already had problem with FF browsing session when i had two windows open and somehow the secondary with not important tabs was closed as the last one and then there was problem to restore the main one.

Question: So in short i have important session open and two browser windows and i want to make a quick backup of the main one or of the both sessions and be able to restore all the opened tabs from this backup easily.

What is the best approach to do it?

Related FAQ: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles#w_backing-up-your-profile But it is about profile, not just opened tabs and it is manual task, not some built in GUI function.

My OS and findings: I am on Linux and i have found this: $ cd ~/.mozilla/firefox/; ls -l $ cd myprofilename/sessionstore-backups;ls -lt recovery.jsonlz4 recovery.baklz4 previous.jsonlz4 upgrade.jsonlz4-202010... ... Do i have to quit FF, then backup the sessionstore-backups and then after i want restore, do the same but only replace the folder? Is there more simple, better way?

Firefox Inspector - Ignore version string when debugging JavaScript

When using Firefox inspector to debug JavaScript, if the version string of the file (eg `<somefile>.js?v=12345`) changes by the server, Firefox Inspector assumes that it is a new source file and thus clears any breakpoints for the file on reload.

Is there a way to disable this such that the Inspector assumes it is the same file?

There are cases where the server actively changes the version on the fly and thus makes debugging very tricky.
