This question is about the developer tools (inspector). Sorry if this is not the right forum. If this is not the right place, please specify where I can ask this question. I have looked around but this seemed like the best place to write this.

This problem started a couple a month ago in Firefox Developer Edtion after an automatic update (to either v82 or 83, im not sure).

This is what used to be the case, prior to the update: In the developer tools, in the inspector tab. There's an overview of the HTML-tree, and when you hover over an html-element in the tree, the correspondent element in de browser window is highlighted, and when you move your mouse the item will no longer be highlighted, since you're no longer hovering over it in the HTML tree. This is how it has always been.

The situation as it has been for 2 to 4 weeks: After selecting a couple of items in de HTML tree, and maybe editing some CSS, so just after normal use, The selected element will stay highlighted, even though I'm no longer hovering over it in the Inspector window. I added a screenshot to show what I mean. This bug is annoying because when editing CSS, I want to be able to clearly see the changes I mean, but now theyre obstructed by the highlight. Toggling developer tools by pressing F12 twice fixes this obviously, but only for a couple of minutes, and sometimes the problem return immidiatly.

This problem first emerged in Firefox Developer Edition about a month ago after an update. It really messes with my workflow, and I couldnt find a solution. Tee problem emerged on multiple websites (not just the ones a was developing, as you can see in my screenshot it also happens on the mozzila website) and the problem was the same accros multiple computers (all modern windows 10 machinary, owned by me or my collegues). So I stopped using Developer Edition, and switched to using 'regular' Firefox for developing, as regular Firefox did not exibit this bug. But since last week, after regular Firefox also got an update, the bug appears in regular Firefox aswell.

So here I am, an avid Firefox Developer Edition user, desperate for a solution. Ofcourse I already tried everything from reïnstalling, refreshing firefox, everything.

Thanks

Why does alternate search engine select ("This time, search with...") require extra action?

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

I am looking for the exact site we need to access to perform auto updates to Firefox DE on Windows 10 64-bit v. 1909. We have numerous security precautions in place and we currently can't access the auto updates area. Our security does not allow us to open the entire downloads area, so we are looking for the exact URL that is required for auto updates to function. We are also wondering if it is possible to have the auto updates point to a local server. This would allow us to bypass giving the full access to the website URL and just point customers locally within our own environment.

Thanks.

New logo at top of home page. What's the quickest/easiest way to get rid of it ?

Rant: Why did someone think it was a good idea to put a massive logo at the top of the home page ? It serves no practical purpose and it forces link icons down so you now have to scroll "!!"!! There's always ******* one isn't there !!? - someone with a crap idea who thinks the world needs to see it. How many hrs worldwide is going to be wasted today by people like me trying to undo this crud ? This isn't the first time some ignorant little ******* has forced their crap on firefox end users.

I have Bing removed from my search engines and when I call up a new window Bing is not there, YAY. But if an app creates a window, even Thunderbird, the window has Bing as it default search engine and is back in the list of search options. This must be a default within Firefox itself or some data file where this comes from. How can I permanently remove Bing.

Addition information, if I lose all my open windows during a crash, last happened when I updated my bios it also reverts to Bing.

In the Find box, sometimes the search skips over my word of interest before I fully type in the word.

I would like to search the old fashioned way in the Find box. Let me completely type my search word and hit Enter before the search commences.


Is this possible?


I do not have the "Search as You Type" option turned on, which really does not apply to the Find box.

Hello, At some point I've started to have problems with FF displaying css shadows and fullscreen videos.

1) Here's an example of how css shadows look like on a variety of sites when openned in FF: http://xmages.net/show.php/2871278_css-png.html . Chromium displays the same sites perfectly.

2) There's some kind of a problem with the switching to the fullscreen mode. For example at imdb.com when I click the fullscreen mode button - the video itself starts underneath the browser window and can be switched to with ALT+TAB. Again - Chromium works fine there.
