This past week when I right click on an article on MSN.com and select the open in a new tab item the new tab appears to the right of the active tab briefly and then disappears. This happens very quickly and I have not found a way to allow the new tab to open. Any thoughts and ideas are greatly appreciated.

Dear community,

I use Firefox on a Linux laptop and an Android phone.

For the past several months, I have been successfully using the Lockwise app on the Android phone to access passwords synced from my computer. I was not logged in to Firefox proper (the browser) until much more recently. Apparently, I have failed to notice that my passwords never synced to Firefox browser.

I have now reinstalled the OS on my laptop and all my passwords are gone there. They still appear in the Lockwise app, but none of my Firefox browser installs (which I all added to Firefox Sync much more recently than Lockwise) can access them. Essentially, it is as if they are only stored on my phone, anymore.

How can I get them back to the browser?

Kind regards, fNek

Opening links from external applications (i.e.: Outlook, Word, a PDF, etc.) begins to open a new tab in Firefox, sometimes it'll open a "full" tab-width before hanging, more often than not, I'll see a sliver of the new tab while Firefox sorts itself out.

Typically when this happens, I'll see upwards of 50% CPU usage from Firefox itself. Memory seems sane.

Hardware acceleration, whether it's on or off, makes no difference. Issue persists in safe-mode, and safe-mode with add-ons disabled. Issue persists in Firefox and Firefox Developer Edition.

Hello!

     So this might be a very simple thing I've clearly skimmed over in the many times I've searched. Or perhaps I didn't enter the magic words into Google just that special way to get the help I desire...

     I'm playing with Addon and Extentions weighing the pro's and con's of different Addons serving the same relative purpose. It's pretty irritating the method I am currently using, downloading an Addon and then going in, and then disable the one I downloaded to grab the next to avoid bad results that can arise from overlapping Addons working on the same functional area. I wanted to know if there was a means in which I could disable the automatic enabling of Addons when I add them from the default Firefox site?

Hi.

I'm using Windows 10 Pro 2004 *N Version* x64 and latest Firefox. I understand there's a problem with Windows N versions that can be solved by installing Media Feature pack. The problem is... MFP also installs full Windows Media Player and who knows what more. I won't install the full MFP, but I wouldn't mind to add some DLLs or registry keys to circumvent the problem.

So far I've tested Youtube and some other sites and apparently WebM videos run OK (got no problem with Youtube at all) ... but can't play videos on Twitter. Tests seem to show there's a problem playing MP4 videos. Also, it looks like Widevine isn't working.

So... can Firefox for Windows be configured to use ffmpeg... or some other woraround to stop depending on Windows Media Foundation (I assume that's the root of the problem)? If not... any 'hack-ish' way to add just the bare minimum Windows support infrastructure to allow Firefox to play those videos?

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Hi!

I recently switched the options listed below to bring some sanity to the way Firefox handles selections in the URL bar.

  • browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll - true
  • browser.urlbar.doubleClickSelectsAll - false

Shortly after, I noticed that this change messes up the primary selection of the X window system. Now every time I open a new tab the previous tab's URL is copied to the primary selection, therefore overriding the information already there.

This behavior was observed in both the Tor Browser and Firefox ESR.

Is there another option I should've set along with the other two or is this an actual bug and I should open a bug report instead?

Thanks
