Hi, my Firefox is wrong window-size when using dual monitors and inflicts on the second monitor. Even when fullscreen netflix etc. on the other monitor. This makes it so that there is a small (a few pixels) bar along the bottom of the monitor whilst i have FF max expanded. I have the second monitor stretched and placed "a top" on the other monitor if that matters. Only FIrefox has this issue when max stretched.

I tried to copying and pasting the email code in and it says wrong code try again. I have tried multiple times and it won't work. Then I tried forget password and tried to use a recovery code to reset my account in an attempt to restart it like a computer but that does not work. I cannot add 2AF to my account. Any help appreciated. It also seems to be recognizing a email that I no longer use. I have had this problem in the past but ignored.

Greetings...

I have been managing cookies through the use of the Manage Exceptions (block/allow for session/allow) feature in the Cookies and Site Data section, with Standard Enhanced Tracking Protection enabled.

If I were to change to Strict Enhanced Tracking Protection, would this change cause any conflict with my existing cookie exception settings? Would the Strict Enhanced Tracking Protection override my existing cookie exception settings? Or, would my existing cookie exception settings override the benefits of the Strict Enhanced Tracking Protection? Would I have to make any changes to my existing cookie exception settings if I wanted to use Strict Enhanced Tracking Protection?

Please advise. Thank you for your help!

Found a quote here from BILL, right before the thread got closed ofc: "This is not a common problem so I don't know how to fix this apart from what jscher2000 already told you. The only other option I can see is if you uninstall and reinstall firefox and see if the problem still persists."

Actually it is a common problem. Actually there are tons of post asking directly and indirectly how to do this and you keep dodging the question. Each time you focus on the person's problem and provide an amateur fix to their local problem rather than providing a real solution like giving us the freedom specify where we want the output directed. The inet itself is full of ppl asking this question on other sites, and there are several possible solutions. Like using the windows sound settings option which is only available if your windows is up to date. Or an addon if you like sharing some info with a stranger and all his customers. And lets not forget the dude that made his own software and uploaded it to github 5 years ago, that solution certainly sounds secure right? All three, possible solutions to the problem, amateur but possible. Just like its also possible that the devs of FF are amateurs for not being able to provide the obvious solution for over 10 years now, which is to let us specify it... Or is it lazyness thats the problem? Why provide something that someone else has already provided before you in a much worse way than you would right?

Que the "did you try blablabla?", no I didnt and I wont. Oh wait that wont come because you cant answer my question with another question since I didnt tell you my problem. Now answer the simple question. I want to know how I can specify to firefox which audio output to use, not hear your... brilliant and not to say the least super safe work around.

I reset my Firefox browser and my bookmarks did not transfer over properly. They are all there but you can only access them by clicking Bookmarks>Manage Bookmarks after which all my bookmarks appear in the favorites bar in the proper order and fully functional on the left side of the pop up window. Then there are a bunch of duplicated folders.

Is there a way for me to put the favorites bar back in the bookmarks tab on the right side of the page?

At this point I don't know what to do. This is the second time that it has happened. First time I fixed it by deleting the places.sqlite file and letting it synch, this time nothing is fixing it. Restoring from backup just moves them out of folder after a few seconds, restoring from html file does the same.

Please help. I have thousands of bookmarks in hundreds of folders. It's impossible to manualy resort them!

thumbnail images on certain websites won't load and sometimes takes 10-20 seconds before they pop up

I've noticed in the past 2-3 weeks when visiting some websites that have a bunch of image thumbnails that load up. It will load the outline of a image, but not load the actual image thumbnail at times until anywhere between 5 seconds to upwards to 20-30 seconds before they pop in. Other times I'll notice it seems like they just don't want to load regardless and I'll even try right clicking on a invisible thumbnail image and clicking "Reload image" for it not to work, sometimes it does.

I have tried nearly everything that I could think of to fix this, I don't know if it's a recent issue with windows 10 maybe? I don't think it's our internet causing the issue since everything else seems to load and stream just fine, these websites work just fine on other devices within our home and I swear it was working just fine on my computer a little over 2-3 weeks ago.

Below is a list of fixes I've tried to rule out.

Clear cookies/cache data, run firefox in safe mode, dev mode, etc.

Completely delete firefox and any old folders, reinstall 100% fresh without any previous data or addons/extensions. Still didn't fix it.

I've tried turning off many of the settings for firefox like hardware accel, smooth scrolling, etc. Nothing.

I then tried doing stuff outside of firefox to see if anything else would work. I have made sure my graphics driver is fully updated and that didn't do anything.

I've tried to see if the thumbnail images were doing the same thing in other browers like chrome and I thought at first that chrome was handling these websites just fine, but after testing it a bit. I noticed the same thing was happening with chrome too.

Since it's also affecting chrome I know it's pretty pointless to post and ask what I should do or what could be the problem here. But I don't know where else to turn and just checking if anyone has had this problem before.

The attached image is a example for one of the websites I'm having this issue with, but like I said. It's loading these websites just fine on other devices from the looks of it.

Hello, thanks for taking time to read this. I tried downloading a website, a public youtube playlist in fact, using the right click - "save page as" command, but when I then click the downloaded page, it loads in firefox for a moment, then switches to a different (private) playlist on youtube. What? It's offline, right? And it aborts loading the saved website and instead loads another site?

I have tried various things from support and also received 1 from the community. it has not worked so I am going to switch to Microsoft Edge because I did not experience this problem with ME.

Hi all, I'm having an annoying problem. A couple weeks ago, I was having major computer problems that required me to completely delete and recreate my user profile. I apparently hadn't logged into Google Voice since then, but decided to try and call a friend from that number today. When I tried to call her though, she couldn't hear me. Subsequent testing revealed that the problem is that Firefox isn't using my computer's microphone as the input, but rather it's taking the input from Stereo Mix, despite the default input device on my computer being the microphone. How do I change this within Firefox? I also have a wireless headset that I use sometimes, but when I plug that in, none of the audio switches to it. If desired, is there a way to get Firefox to use this device for audio output?

Hello Firefox Community and suport team,

Hope you all and your families are safe in these tough times.

I'm using Firefox extended support release 78.12.0esr (https://www.screencast.com/t/DfQBOa0GcDG), everything is working fine unless I use any virtual machine inside that, numpad starts misbehaving.

Whenever I type any number using number keys given below function keys, it works fine. But when I type any number from numpad situated at right side of full keyboard, it starts misbehaving. It types an alphabet with every keys. Video screenshot of the issue: https://www.screencast.com/t/ovucf32Tpz1d

Can anyone please check and help me to get rid of this issue?

Thanking You, Om
