I have changed the settings in about:config, and also with options in the tools menu on Firefox, and I am still having problems, specifically with Fox News, but also other sites that allow a video to automatically play and blast audio. It is very disconcerting that there doesn't seem to be a way to stop this from happening. Can you help? I am using Firefox 86.

Is there a way that I can change this setting in config rather than downloading an add-on? This changed with the most recent Firefox update for me (I'm currently on 85.0.1. for Ubuntu). Currently, the default save behavior is for bookmarks to save to the most recent folder you've picked. My preferred behavior would be for all bookmarks to save to "Other bookmarks" until I can file them away later.

Whenever I click on Print Edit WE button the edit page opens but all the buttons are inactive and the PE button in the toolbar shows SUS for suspend. Nothing I do fixes it. I've removed and reinstalled the lastest version of PE from the add-on web page 3 or 4 times. A right click on the PE button drops down a menu but the one I need, Edit, puts PE into suspend mode. What could be causing this? I'm running FF 83.0, 64 bit, Windows 10 Pro. Print Edit has always worked before. Does the latest version have a bug? Or does FF maybe have a bug?

I'm trying to run Firefox on headless mode through Selenium in AWS Lambda. Since Lambda marks the root file system as read-only except /tmp/. I pointed the geckodriver to write the logs to /tmp but still Firefox is not starting up and it's failing with the following error.

I recall that when entering full screen for YouTube videos and whatnot, the address bar would instantly hide, much like how it does in Edge and Chrome. This no longer seems to occur with FireFox. I have ensured that auto-hide is enabled in about:config, and the problem persists in private windows with all add-ons disabled. The address bar only actually hides after interacting with it, such as right clicking on it and back onto the video.

See top of attached image.

Any help is appreciated.

Advice pages tell me to "click on this or that button" which doesn't help at all- no buttons. I want to change what she sees on start up and add a passwords manager, respectively see what passwords are stored in FF. (After repair, she lost her password to her Gmail account). Thanks....

Hi

I have an issue.

I have used Firefox browser for over a year now and this had never happened.

When I zoomed with the touchpad it would always only zoom text and not the whole page. That's my preferred setting. From a few days now it has changed and now it is zooming the whole thing and not text only. I need to only zoom text for my work, as it is more convenient and comfortable. I tried uninstalling and installing the browser again and it hasn't helped. I checked this article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/font-size-and-zoom-increase-size-of-web-pages and did what it suggested but nothing changes.

"How to only change the size of the text

Instead of changing the size of everything, you can just change the size of the text.

   Press the Alt key to temporarily bring up the traditional Firefox menus. On the menu at the top, click View, then go to Zoom.
   Select Zoom Text Only. This makes the controls only change the size of text; not images. "

That didn't do. My "Zoom Text Only" is already selected but then again, it is zooming the whole thing. I also tried it under the options to choose "Zoom Text Only" and it's still the same.

Can anyone please help me? Is this an issue with the browser or my computer?

Thank you so much in advance. I really need to get it back to how it was a few days ago.
