The reason I'm not using the discord app is because there are some other shennanigans going on and I lose sound with it for no reason but it doesn't seem to happen with the browser version. The mic icon shows because I've given permission to that site to use the mic.

Hi When I open Inspector from Firefox Developer Tools and select an HTML node, inspector shows numerous CSS related items for that node (like Rules, Layout, Computed, etc), but it does not show basic HTML DOM properties. In particular, I need to see innerText property for the currently selected node (and then walk through HTML tree watching innerText for every node). I found that I can do Right Click, Show DOM properties and than it prints all properties to the Web Console window, but this is not convenient: I have to repeat this Right Click thing for every element and search for innerText every time. This will take forever. So, question: is it possible to somehow show innerText for the current node automatically (like those CSS items are shown)? Thank you

Hi,

Thanks to Mozilla for continuing to develop such a clean browser, with movies made of GIF instead of much larger files.

So we have developed an extension or add-on for many years using the same method. But recently ( maybe I forgot ), with a new developer profile, I am unable to edit any files because the .xpi extension in the extensions folder, is compressed and cannot be navigated in a file Explorer.

In the past, I just install the extension and change the file extension from .xpi to .zip, and then extract into a folder with the same name. Then delete the .xpi/.zip folder, and the new folder acts as a pointer for the same instance of installation. And I can just modify the files in that folder usually and I don't need to restart the browser to see the changes. But lately I cannot do this.

What is the best way to debug the add-on with the least number of steps?

Thanks,

Josh

Recently our HTPC had a video issue and it was resolved by changing the HDMI cable. Oddly, this was the catalyst for a Full screen video issue we now have with Firefox (Edge and Chrome work okay). Whenever full screen video is initiated (Plex, TED Talk, YouTUBE, etc), it initially for about 0.5 a second looks fine, then "zooms in" or crops the image so that that we only see the upper left portion of the video in full screen. I have tried replacing the Amplifier (before I realized it was only firefox), reinstalling Firefox, updating our video drivers, and have completely replaced all HDMI cables. Please, if someone could offer a suggestion. I can't figure out what's going on here.

Hello, I have both the regular version of Firefox and the developer version installed and three profiles--one set to open in regular and two in developer. I installed the recent update in the developer version and when attempt to open the regular version, there is a message about having an older version of Firefox installed and corrupt bookmarks and to create a new profile. I don't understand. If I open a new profile, Firefox is up to date; and I can open the regular profile in the developer version through about:profiles. How can I get the profile to open again in the regular version of Firefox? I read the article about downgrading to an older version and losing bookmarks, but I didn't downgrade versions or installations. Thank you.

A recent upgrade introduced a regression for me: FF crashes as soon as I use FUS to switch to another user account or even to the login screen.

This is on Mac OS X 10.9.5 (old but stable and I need to stick to it until further notice), I have an external screen which is also the main screen (has the menubar).

I haven't yet figured out how to get access to the stack backtraces (before or after submitting) but it looks like FF is trying to access some resource that gets invalidated when FUS triggers. It's the only application I've ever seen that cannot survive a FUS trip...

Can anyone reproduce this?

When I use my Microphone from within an iFrame, I don't have the permanent option. In Chrome it is possible though, and even when loading the Page, which containing the iFrame is loaded twice, the Permission granted for my Microphone is saved permanently. In Firefox, this is different. The Permission granted for the content inside the iFrame is only temporarily, and I don't have the option to give it a permanent Permission. If I launch the content of the iFrame as a standalone website, it is giving me the option to permanently allow this Permission though.

Is there any workaround or can you give me any Hint?

Suddenly, the firefox account stopped accepting my password on the mozilla site. I have not changed it since November. (it will save in lockwise). At the moment, a previously signed in account is valid (I did not log out of the account, but I can not change the password). I do not have account recovery enabled when resetting a password. When resetting the password, I will lose all my saved 300+ passwords, as it seemed to me previously securely saved.

In my userChrome.css I use only this:


#navigator-toolbox {
  display: flex;
  flex-direction: column;
}

#titlebar {
  order: 2;
}

to move tabs to bottom.

Firefox keeps changing what is necessary in the userChrome.css file in order to place tabs below the Menu and Bookmark toolbars. Because of this, there are so many different versions of the code that must be added to that file that it has become virtually impossible to keep up with it.

It would be so much simpler for users if the Tabs below Menu/Bookmark toolbar option was again made an option. Failing that, would someone please publish the code currently necessary to accomplish this with Firefox 72.01.
