This is going to be difficult to explain, so I'll do my best;

Recently, Firefox has been exhibiting a problem where, upon maximizing a window, the window extends up by a few pixels more than any other maximized window. Now, normally this wouldn't be a problem as the top of the screen would cut off any extra padding. However, using a program that reserves the screen edge shows that a maximized Firefox window indeed extends past the regular window border by exactly 8 pixels.

What's more, when using Windows Snap on two separate Firefox windows, one of the windows respects the screen edge while the other does not! This leads to the window control buttons at the top right of both windows to be in different vertical positions, which is difficult to use.

No other programs I have exhibit this behavior, which is why I'm turning to Mozilla support. I don't know if the issue has to do with the browser or how Windows 10 renders the desktop, but it throws off the design of the desktop as I intend to display it.

In the provided example picture, the left window demonstrates predicted behavior where the upper border of the window is at the position I intend (40 pixels from the true screen edge), while the right window can be seen extending past the left one by exactly 8 pixels. I have tried this with extensions disabled, in safe mode, and every other way I can think of and the problem persists. No other programs exhibit this issue. This is utterly baffling to me and I hope someone might understand and be able to suggest any solutions.

Thank you!

Did something change in Firefox today? I tried to let Firefox save a password and user name for Ask LibreOffice and when I tried to log in the password failed and I had to reset it.This happened again just now. (LibreOffice again). Firefox used to mess up in this way but that was ages ago. Everything has worked beautifully until today. Thank you!

Two degrees of full screen mode

Using 78.0.1 on Windows 10, when I press F11 to get full screen in Youtube TV, it works, but it leaves a thin grey line at the very top of my screen (1280x800 resolution showing 1280/720 YTTV), and mousing over it drops down the Firefox tab and URL bars. That's "Full Screen Level 1". Using --kiosk prevents the dropdowns, but it doesn't get rid of the line.

If I play some video and mouse over the Firefox window while it's in Level 1 and not displaying any UI, a full screen icon appears in the upper right. Clicking it gets rid of the gray line and briefly shows the message, "youtube.com is now full screen." Now, mousing over the top middle of the screen displays that message instead of the Firefox UI. That's "Full Screen Level 2."

When I start Firefox, it remembers Level 1, but not Level 2, and the only way I see to get Level 2 is to click on the icon. I want Level 2 all the time for this profile, which I use on a small secondary monitor, and only for YTTV.

Any ideas?

Fingers crossed - I may have solved this problem by completely uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. The problem: Every time I opened Firefox, the Safe Access app on my Synology RT2600ac router would send an alert to say that it had blocked a connection to vice.com. I've never visted that website, so I have no idea why Firefox would keep triggering an alert from my router. Has anyone any idea what might have cause this?

Hello. I'm using a brand-new installation of Firefox 78.0.1 on a freshly installed copy of Windows 10 Pro. The only way I can get Firefox to display any notifications is by having alerts.useSystemBackend set to true. While this is set to false, notifications will not work. If I use this site to test them, it just says, 'queued for display', followed immediately by 'closed'. I've also tried creating a new profile and testing it again with no success. All sites were granted notification permissions in each case.

Thanks for any help.

Is there a way to keep the firefox process in foreground? I'd like to write a .CMD script which opens a file location where the profiles are stored (a VHD file), mount it, and then launch it with the profile stored up there, something like:

start "firefox" /W "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" "-foreground -profile ""%driveletter%\%ffprofile%"""

...but firefox always forks to background. I do not want that, as this batch script needs to close the VHD file after firefox process completes.

How do I keep the process in foreground?

Hi,

I've recently had an issue where there is a white bar on one of my other monitors when Firefox is maximised. I have reinstalled Firefox, restarted in Safe Mode, uninstalled it completely and tried a different build (I tried Nightly 80.0a1) and it has remained the same.

The issue does not occur on any other window or browser; I have tried Edge and Chrome and it doesn't occur on either of those.

Here is how it looks in person, and Here is how it looks when Firefox is minimised (The black bar is just the gap between my two monitors)

Here is how it looks in a screenshot (note the white line between the top of the Firefox window and my wallpaper)

The new design of Reader View has two problems:

  1. Given that this feature is particularly important for those with eyesight problems or other disabilities, it seems like a bad move to have made the buttons smaller.
  1. The buttons used to be on the left-hand side of the window, but now they're directly to the left of the page text. This means that the pop-out controls for the Listen button now overlap the text. So if I want to be able to read the text at the same time as listening to the TTS, I have to click a second time on the Listen button to hide the pop-up. Then I have to click on it for a third time if I want to stop the TTS.

I use roboform and, I guess Firefox, puts the roboform toolbar at the bottom of the screen - frequently there is no option to scroll the screen up and I cannot read what is on the bottom of the screen unless I disable the roboform toolbar, read the line or two I am missing and then reenable the roboform toolbar - not a huge deal but sort of a pain in the neck - any way around that? Thanks in advance for any help.
