Hi,

I have been using MS multiple desktop feature to separate my tasks to simplify work flow. For example Desktop 1 = Finance Desktop 2 = Coding etc.

In each desktop I had multiple tabs opened related to the subject

I noticed that Firefox only remembers the tabs last opened and not the ones opened in that specific desktop.

Anyway to make it so that Firefox remembers the tabs opened in the specific desktop assigned to it?

Thank you.

I'm working on an addon to automate taking screenshots of lecture slides. I'm using a canvas object to capture and save the file blobs and JSZip to zip everything together and download. But JSZip keeps throuhing the `unsupported file type` error. Even though blobs are supported.

Here's the relevant code I'm using Github File

I've submitted an issue to the maintainer which has some more debugging info. The script in the addon_context has some very quantum behaviour and changes output every time I console.log Github Issue

I'm wondering if there might be a problem on my end, with the way I'm generating and processing the blobs. The same code works in chromium based browser, I'm confused as to what Firefox does differently. Any help would be appreciated.

When I'm browsing articles or news stories or what-have-you on the web, I would like to be able to read the information I came from without all the distracting stuff on the sides and top (or worse, the kind of pop-ups that can't be blocked, because they are JS-generated in the same page). Article mode is great for this, but can I have it automatically enable to help prevent me from distracting myself?

I would like to use the amazon.com (and wikipedia.com) search engine and keyword. But since I have installed a non-English version of Firefox (or maybe because the default language of my OS is non-English), I get defaulted to amazon for a different country (and the Wikipedia for that language).

How do I get the US / international version as default?

Firefox Dev Ed is a great browser for web development and tweaking CSS. But sadly it does not always show default property values.

A classic example of this is the
    element's default padding-left property. This apparently is set at 40px automatically unless overridden by the web designer. I think that ALL inherited or default properties of elements ought to be clearly shown in the inspect tool's styling listings. You could spend hours maddeningly trying to find the cause of some of these offsets to what you expected to display. The curious thing is that some inherited or default property values are shown on the inspect tool - which leads us to assume that what is seen on inspect is all that there is . . . This change should not be too difficult to implement. And it would be a great thing to have when searching down unexpected behaviour in webpage displays.

The sidebar that is brought up by clicking on the sidebar button normally shows whatever you choose on its dropdown menu (Bookmarks, History, or synced tabs). And it used to be, if you choose Bookmarks on that menu, it shows bookmarks the next time you open it. But since a few weeks, it is always showing History when clicked, even though I only ever use it for Bookmarks. Is there any way to stop this behaviour?

firefox profile cannot be loaded...With a twist!

Hello I followed the instructions to "Reset download actions for all file types" from here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files#w_reset-downl… (read more)

Hello

I followed the instructions to "Reset download actions for all file types" from here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files#w_reset-download-actions-for-all-file-types. I accidentally renamed the profile folder instead of the json file.

unsurprisingly, i now get the "firefox profile cannot be loaded" message and cannot open firefox.

I uninstalled and reinstalled firefox to no success.

In an attempt to correct this error (that is, to change the renamed folder back to its original name), i tried to follow these instructions: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-firefox-stores-user-data#w_finding-your-profile-without-opening-firefox

Under "how do i find my profile?" it reads "Click the Finder icon in the dock. On the menu bar, click the Go menu, hold down the option or alt key and select Library. A window will open containing your Library folder." Well, using the Go tab, there is no Library folder. but I managed to find the folder anyways. but when i do find the folder Library > Application Support, there is no Firefox folder in there!

Please advise how it is that I can find this folder and rename it

THanks

Just after the most recent FF update I noticed , from time-to-time, that when I print FF is using the FF printer mode instead of the default Adobe Acrobat printer mode. It doesn't happen all the time, but it happens. My options screen still shows Adobe as the default printer mode. So, I don't understand why this is happening. I look forward to anyone's comments.
