So, I've been using the Picture-in-Picture feature of Firefox a lot - when it works well, it's a really useful feature, especially if, like me, you use a second screen to play the video on, but don't like the overlay constantly popping up over the video. And, when the video is in a modern, widescreen aspect ratio, it usually works.

The problem is that when I try to watch, in fullscreen, a video that's in a 4:3 ratio, as many are on Netflix, Amazon and the like, the Picture-in-Picture window will often, presumably registering the black space on either side, zoom right into the video, cutting off a massive portion of the frame and filling the screen completely. Sometimes it doesn't do that at all, sometime it can be fixed by restarting the video and fiddling with the timings and sometimes there's just seemingly nothing I can do and it just will not stop doing it, no matter how much I reload or what I do!

Please tell me how I can get the damn thing to just keep the video in place and stop it deciding "Hey! You don't need to see all of the video, do you?! No, of course you don't!"

Hello!

I've change the size of the icons in the bookmark bar by using the userChrome.css which now has

  1. personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon { height:25px !important; width:25px !important; }

I've increased the height and the width for larger size of the icons since my bookmarks don't have text. The problem is that some of the become blurry after the enlargement. I've tried to force refresh the favicons by Ctrl+F5 and also deleting the cache, but it still does not work.

I know that favicons are usually provided in 16x16 px and 32x32, but I don't see how could I make firefox use the 32x32 version since it's using the 16x16 and enlarging it.

Thanks in advance!

Hello. Is there a way to make Firefox colorize add-on icons (seen in gray here) like it does with the built-in ones?

When using the AlpenGlow theme, for instance, built-in icons are colorized while add-on icons are not (including official add-ons). See attached screenshot.

Is there a way to change this, or some workaround?

It's a simple question: Why Firefox enforces by default extensions like Amazon, Bing, eBay, Google ? What really these extensions do?

Paradox#1: Firefox enforces to use those totally insecurity and unreliable companies! Paradox #2: Firefox don't even show those extensions mentioned above! Paradox #3: Even when I remove them from "Options->Search Engines" these ones keep being enabled and hidden! Paradox #4: Third party program needed to manage those Firefox hidden extensions! I Disable all above extensions by "CCleaner" and: Paradox #5: they comes back by default in every Firefox damn update!

I wish I'm wrong I would pleased if someone explain in an article, or even in few words, why all those. I think Mozilla should detailed explain.

Thanks in advance and Sorry for my English.

Issue: the bookmark toolbar arrow (the one that shows bookmarks that don't fit on the toolbar) is gone from my browser, and the toolbar itself seems truncated (only like 7/8 of the toolbar is filled).

I didn't change any settings or installed any add-ons that could have to do with this. It just disappeared one day, I didn't even notice it at first.

What I tried:

  • I launched Firefox in safe mode, didn't fix it
  • I removed my userChrome.css file, didn't fix it
  • when I cut the bookmarks and paste them into the toolbar, the arrow shows, but when I relaunch the browser it is gone again

See photo for what it looks like (ignore the anonymous favicons, I changed them temporarily with userChrome to preserve privacy, but without userChrome the issue still stands).

Anyone has an idea what happened and how to fix this? Thanks.

Hi Firefox Team

I am very happy to use this browser as it serves all my needs perfectly! So thanks you for that.

The issue I have is about the updates. Whenever Firefox updates, I lose the sites saved on it. I have no issues with that.

However, can you give me the option to select a time and date for it?

That way I can, 1) Select a time when I am not working on Firefox. 2) Coordinate with other updates like Windows and McAfee.

This will ensure that I am prepared for the sites to disappear just once, instead of every time there's an update.

Thanks, Kajal

Within the last 2 weeks or so I get this error repeatedly when accessing secure sites that i used to be able to access with no issues. I use a private VPN and 2 factor authentication. Sometimes stopping the VPN momentarily fixes this, but for other sites, it's no go. This isn't an SSL or SEC error and a search on help forum didn't provide an answer.

I use Win 10 and FF 83 (German so I did not know the exact english messages)

If I want to open a file-link like ZIP or PDF directly to show in FF or the fitting software (7zip, Acrobat) ("open with...") the file will be downloaded and then it is away. In the downloads history is written "the file is moved, renamed or deletet". I can download the file ("file save as") to the disk and open it after it manually. There are no problems in Chrome or Edge. I try out some settings in the Windows Defender but it did not help. Any idea?
