Up until Firefox 64, Firefox had limited support for RSS:

  • Viewing a RSS feed would show you the feed items, with an option to do something with the feed.
  • Live bookmarks would actually subscribe to those feeds

I can understand removing Live Bookmarks. It's a big feature. I don't understand removing the (what I assume to be) XSLT stylesheet that made RSS feeds not look like a wall of XML. Does anybody know what the conversation was here? Are there minutes?

Even basic RSS support helps people interact with the web, and since Chrome and Firefox both dumped RSS, users are being driven further and further into the arms of "Platforms" who handle this stuff through black-box algorithms. And so much tracking.

Mozilla should reverse this one. Bring RSS back hard.

Hi. Recently, when I open "beisat.com" or "beisat.org" in firefox it shows the website content in a bad shape. I am 100 percent sure that it is not from server because I have tested with my phone and another laptop. Also tried multiple internet connections. I failed to find a way resolving this error.

Ok, there might exist a solution to this, but I am not able to find it or even a better way to explain it.

So, the main issue is, I have a lots of tabs open on my Firefox (Linux) and after some minutes of inactivity, Firefox automatically deletes all the data associated with that site.

So, when I switch back to that site, it reloads.

The main issue is with Whatsapp Web, as I don't get notification if I don't switch to the tab every now and then.

There might be a option for this behavior in the settings but I can't seem to find it.

Please help me find a solution.

Thanks

There is a large delay between when I open Firefox, and when it finally loads my homepage (Bing.com). To help troubleshoot, I installed Wireshark, and performed a packet capture.

At timestamp 13.547047 seconds, it sends a query for detectportal.firefox.com. At this point we know the browser is open and functioning.

At timestamp 19.768820 it sends a query for www.bing.com. It's taken over 6 seconds, before firefox even tries to load my homepage.

What is it doing for those 6 seconds? How do I get it to load Bing at timestamp 13.547048?

I have changed margin settings and tried changing the sizing vs 'fit to window', but it still prints smaller than what is showing it will print. if i choose to print in the system dialogue or on another browser its fine. just the firefox print system is not correct.

Sometimes, I'll click a new tab, and "something" happens. It's like it tries to create a new tab, yet it's just a half-formed nothing that you can't interact with. And when this happens, Firefox is destined to eventually crash / become unresponsive. I literally have to reboot to get Firefox working again. I haven't tried logging out. That would probably work, too.

This also happens when moving new tabs, but I've only notice that happen on tabs with Youtube.com open.

I am using Firefox to interact with Babbel language software. I cannot get Firefox to allow me to use my standalone microphone. I tried all the Firefox recommended fixes, but I cannot make them work. I go to the "Microphone" permission setting. There is nothing listed there and it will "not" allow me to add the Babbel website? What do I need to do to allow my microphone to work with Babbel?

Hi - I'm signed into firefox sync on two different computers, both running Ubuntu 20.04. I can tell that they're connected to the same account because I can see the other computer in the list for "Send tab to device".

However, the bookmarks aren't syncing - one computer has the full set, the other (newly set up) computer still has the default bookmarks.

When I check `about:sync-log`, I see these lines:

``` 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of prefs - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of passwords - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of tabs - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of bookmarks - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of addons - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of forms - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of history - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of extension-storage - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping validation: no engines qualify 1654551773179 Sync.Status DEBUG Status.sync: success.sync => success.sync 1654551773179 Sync.Status DEBUG Status.service: success.status_ok => success.status_ok 1654551773180 Sync.Synchronizer INFO Sync completed at 2022-06-06 14:42:53 after 1.48 secs. ```

That is, it seems to think that bookmark syncing is disabled - however, I have bookmark syncing enabled, as you can see in the attached screenshot.

I used to sign in to my credit card through Elan Financial Services and then I would highlight my credit card, tell it the date range I needed to update to Quicken, and hit enter. a popup would give me the option of opening the file or to save the quicken file to my computer. I would select the option to open the file and it would update my register on Quicken. Now, I only get the option to save the file to my computer. On Microsoft Edge, I still get the choice to open or save the file. Why doesn't Firefox support the Open Function anymore. I use Firefox for everything, but now I have to remember to switch to Edge for this one important update. Is this a change in Firefox or something I have to deal with Elan on? Thanks for any help. --sgb
