Open links in tabs instead of new windows

Hi, I have set Firefox to "Open previous windows and tabs" and to "Open links in tabs instead of new windows". When the system opens Firefox for me because I've clicked a link in a document, I would like the link to open in a new tab of that previous window which Firefox opens at startup. For many years this was its behaviour. In Chrome for example, this was not and is still not the case.

Recent upgrades to Firefox have changed its behaviour to that of Chrome. When I click a link, Firefox now opens the link in a new window and then opens the previous window on top of that. The link I wanted to follow is behind and invisible.

Could someone check and see if this is related to my system (I'm running Monterey) or if it's reproducible? I can't think of a reason for this change so it feels like a bug, either on my system or in the app itself.

Thanks for any help!

After Firefox updated, I can no longer access www.apple.com. This is the error I get now:

Blocked by X-Frame-Options Policy

An error occurred during a connection to idmsa.apple.com.

Firefox prevented this page from loading in this context because the page has an X-Frame-Options policy that disallows it.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this issue as soon as possible. Thank You.

As stated in the title, everytime when I open a link in the operating system (i.e. clicking on a link in an email or opening a website with Alfred) while Firefox is not already running, the following happens:

1. Two Firefox windows are opened 2. One window opens the requested website (https://startpage.com in the Screenshots) but has no context items in the Menu Bar above. 3. The second opens at Home and has the items in the Menu Bar.

I am using Mac OS Catalina (multiple versions) and the issue persisted a complete reinstall (I wiped my hard drive and did a clean install) of the operating system. I tried mainstream Firefox 73.0 and Firefox Dev Edition latest beta 74.0b2. (Used `brew cask` to install) Also I do have another Mac on High Sierra that does not have this issue.

So my Firefox Developer edition just got updated to the version 74.0b2 and I got this brand new address/search bar. One of the things that it used to have before it had been updated was a simple arrow-down button that, when clicked, showed the most visited sites. Now, after the update, this button is gone (pic related). This makes my experience with Firefox *extremely* worse, because now I don't have a quick access to open one of my most visited sites inside the current tab without starting typing their addresses. Is there any option to bring that feature back? Is removal of this button an already-made design choice for Firefox that will stay with us for the next versions?

Hello, I personally dislike the new address bar (also known as Megabar), mainly because it is enlarged without any user intervention, even if I only want to open a bookmark without typing anything in there.

Is there a setting in about:config to disable focus in the address bar for new tabs? Thanks.

Hello,

I urgently ;-) need a shortcut to switch between open browser windows. It seems to be one of the basic ones, but is nowhere to be found.

Solutions using Tilde do not work for me becuse it's not available on my Apple keyboard.

Why not use Command +< or Command + > respectively, like many other apps do?

And why not at least let me configure that in a simple fashion myself???

Thanks for any solution!

hello,

What's a pity with this video overlay option is that the subtitle does not accompany the overlay but remains in the original page.

What would be interesting is to have the subtitle accompanying the detached window.

Do you think it's feasible to recover both the video and the subtitle in the main window?

Hi! I just installed Firefox in my Debian 10, that I have just installed. I have to install several users in that old Mac Mini that was going to garbage and now it's working again!

I decided to activate Sync in order to keep working in the same pages from one session to another - handy! But after I login, the next page is a 500 error! This has ocurred in my Macbook with macOS, as it should, but thought I should report somewhere.

What is really strange is the logout button is not available in user menu as in the mac version, this is odd. It tuck me some hard time to manage to logout! Guess is a real flaw...

But my tests has worked really good in that old hardware!

Downloading and Opening docx Firefox appends doc onto file

I am using Hotdocs portal, which is an in-house document assembly tool. Firefox is the recommended browser, but it is recently handling 2016 docx files incorrectly. When we choose a file on the portal site (internal site), we go through the interview and are presented with a link to "download" the assembled file. When you click that link, a pop-up appears showing the file name as abc.docx but then says it is a Word 97 - 2003 document, even though it is not. The original template is not. If I choose to open the file, it ends up opening and showing as abc.docx.doc If I save the file, instead of opening it, it saves as abc.docx.

If we run this same process in IE/Edge, the file opens as abc.docx as it should. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. Is there anything that could be causing this? I've tried a bunch of troubleshooting steps and nothing seems to change this outcome.

Thank you.

In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.

Hello,

It's been 3 days since I can no longer play any video since Firefox Developer Edition. I added absolutely nothing and it happened suddenly. When I play a video, I hear the sound but the video loads endlessly. Same with the default HTML reader in Firefox. I tried to go to preferences and uncheck the graphics acceleration, to refresh Firefox, to reinstall it but nothing works! Even in private browsing without any extension, it does not work! I tried from another browser but it works without problems.

Thanks for your help.
