Hello. Is there a possibility to swap the destinations of mouse shortcuts? I am asking this because of i want all links open with new tabs. I have read the article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1205311, the extension that the expert recommends does not work as expected, but middle click works perfect everywhere. I am sorry if I doubled the known question, but i failed to find anything clear. Thank you.

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!"

While trying to fix Firefox's massive memory leaks, I went to Help/Troubleshooting/Add-Ons and found these, which are NOT in the usual Manage Add-ons page:

Amazon.com extension Bing extension

ClearURLs extension <-- Oops! I actually installed this, to try to trim URLs of all the tracking crap when I paste one into a Facebook comment.

DuckDuckGo extension eBay extension Wikipedia (en) extension

All of the other extensions listed are ones I installed and wish to keep. EVERY time I install Firefox, I go to the One-Click Search Engines list and remove all but Google.

I don't know how these wormed their way in, but they don't seem to add any functionality for me.

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.

When I go to one site, Firefox is now asking me microphone permission on every page on that site during the same session.

This did not happen until two days ago. It used to be when I granted permission for my microphone to be used on that site, it applied to every page on it throughout the session, as long as I did not close out, sign out or close the window. Now, every time I go to speak, when on a new page, it asks for permission. Since this is a language learning site, this has become a real pain.

There is no "remember this setting" dialog either when I first give permission to use the microphone. It is asking for permission for the general site, so it's not asking for each page. When I check the permissions box after moving to the next page, no permissions are granted.

Nothing that I can tell has changed. It's not doing this with other browsers, which is concerning.

I checked my settings site and nothing has changed. I also did Firefox refresh and that did not help. Signed off and signed in again, on both the laptop and website -- all did not change this.

Hello All. Ok. I got one for you. I just hooked up new (stand alone) monitor to my laptop.

It's an Acer SB220Q. Connected fine. But everything is very pixelated and flickers, but only on Firefox and only on the monitor. No issues on my laptop. Google Chrome and Explorer Edge both work fine on the Monitor.

As a mini-geek - started out as computer science major - I've checked all the drivers, graphics, and even uninstalled and reinstalled driver. Nothing changed.

What gives?

I am the administrator for a Weebly website. Yesterday, when I try to log into this website on Firefox, I got the error message "wrong user name or password." I have changed nothing. I reset my password using Weebly reset, and received the same message. Then I tried to access my website on Opera, and got in with no problem.

Any suggestions on how to fix will be most welcome. Caveat: I am NOT very computer literate, sorry!

Hello All, I struggle with Firefox and Windows CA.

I have installed in AD Windows CA and I want also use Firefox. I generated certificates, propagated to clients and on Chrome and Edge everything works as well.

Only on firefox i still have prompt about certificate: "MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_CA_CERT_USED_AS_END_ENTITY"

Due to tutorials I have set up GPO where i force "security.enterprise_roots.enabled", true" option but it doesn't work.

I have read the problem is with basicConstraints CA but I can't disable those module from certificate template in Windows CA.

I have also accepted certificates in Firefox.

What I can do to force Firefox to accept Windows CA certificates.

Hi all, I have this problem: my webcam (is an USB camera on a desktop with Windows 10 - Innoo Tech 1080HD - quite a low budget one) does not work on the first on Firefox (using Google meet or any webcam test site), but after I run a FPS test on (https://it.webcamtests.com/fps) it will star working. I already have given the necessary permission for using the camera (checked both on windows and mozilla options) to all sites. Here is the thing: when I start a call in Google meet it says "camera is starting" but nothing appear on the screen. The camera does not work also in all sites for testing the webcam, nothing appear in the screen. But here is the trick: if I run the FPS test on webcamtests.com all start working, but if I close firefox on the next time I will open it, the camera will not start working again. All the times I run the FPS test the camera starts working properly.

How could I solve seriously this problem? thanks Lorenzo

I was lucky enough to be able to buld a new PC recently, Running Windows 10 Pro on a AMD Ryzen 9 5900X rig, Asus Crosshair VII Hero motherboard and 32gb of RAM. Nvidia Gforce 1070 GPU (stand in until I can get better in the new year) Should easily be enough to run Firefox right? Apparently not.

Performance in Firefox is little better than it was on my old rig, (which was still lousy). The browser constantly freezes and locks up, not responding at all to mouse clicks between tabs or on the page. It is especially common when a website opens a file requester, such as when I'm working on my website in Wordpress, but it also happens when working with downloads or seemingly randomly too (my downloads folder is on the C drive and always accessble).

I've tried disabling all plugins (I only have 3, Privacy Badger, Facebook container and Sticky Password), I don't see what point there is in resetting the profile as I only got this computer 3 days ago.

Regards software that might conflict, I run Malwarebytes anti-malware and DisplayFusion but I've tried disabling the latter and still no joy.

I really don't want to Chrome but it's leaving me little choice here. Is there anything else I can try? Thunderbird on the same PC works perfectly.

Hello to FredMcD

Thank you very much for responding to my post and so quickly. I’ve not yet started Firefox in safe mode but have done the other things you mentioned. As I have dealt with lots of problems (solved now thanks to help from MS, Parallels, Apple) over the last month, I think I’ll wait a few days before moving ahead with this one.

I constantly use the "This time, search with..." option in the search bar to switch between my default search engine and others on the fly. Since version 84.0, this now needlessly prepends the query with a search engine label and requires an additional action to complete (either a return or click of search arrow).

I feel as though the clicking of any of those alternate search engine options is enough to establish intent by the user and should act as a submit button for the request. The only "advantage" this new functionality allows for is a select-first, query-after approach, which I find uncommon.

My request:

1) Return previous behavior. 2) Implement hybrid -- Search-first, query-after produces label; query first, search after submits. 3) Provide an option in the settings to toggle behavior.

Hope someone can help/shed some light on the change,

Thanks

How do I configure Firefox to connect to my proxy server using HTTPS, not HTTP?

If I enter "tls.example.com" as my HTTP proxy, and 443 as the port number, Firefox sends an unencrypted "CONNECT" header on port 443. Of course, this is wrong, because my proxy server only speaks HTTPS, not HTTP.

If I enter "https://tls.example.com/" as my HTTP proxy, and 443 as the port number, Firefox says "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." but in fact, Wireshark confirms that Firefox never even tries to connect to anything! It never sends a single SYN packet at all.

According to: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=378637 Firefox does support the behavior described. That link doesn't explain how to configure it, though.
