There is an application which is launched by a script in Firefox. Basically it launches a print job. Unfortunately the application can't launch since Firefox says "User Gesture is Required". We temporarily added a button for a user gesture to be recorded but ultimately we don't want this button here. Is there any setting where we can bypass this "User Gesture is Required" check?

I've tried the F9 Keyboard Shortcut, I've tried other Reader Add-Ons, this function simply doesn't work with Outlook. Either when in the Inbox, or with an opened Email. Anyone else encounter this?

Anyone know of a solution to making this work?


On a VERY side note: Here is my 1st initial text, when I believed the problem was about Firefox Add-Ons (I now have discovered it's not about the Add-Ons, it's the about the Reader View function). << When double-clicking on an Email, on the Outlook web site (https://outlook.office.com/mail/), the Email opens in a new window. When the new Window is opened, doesn't work.

When I click on Firefox's "Enhanced Tracking Protection" Icon and disable it, then the Extensions work. What's even weirder, is the behavior is the same for the REVERSE (if the Enhanced Protection is Disabled, the Keyboard Shortcut doesn't work until I "ENABLE" the Enhanced Protection).

Is there a setting in about:config that can return the functionality of Add-Ons (Extensions)?

On a side note, I found a setting to force the New Emails to Open in a new Tab instead of a new Window. The same bevaior is replicated, No improvement has been shown on that front. browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction = 0 >>

I can hide the Menu bar but the space it occupied is still visible. I can use Full Screen to make it go away but I have an ultrawide monitor and don't want Firefox to take up the whole thing.

IS there another way to make the menu bar space disappear?

We have released a browser add-on that works with apps using NativeMessaging, but it stopped working after updating Firefox to v114 on Windows 10 (64bit). We have confirmed that it works up to v113.0.1. The browser add-on manifest is v2. In the Mac version using the same browser add-on, the application can be linked even after updating to v114. The behavior of the bug on Windows is similar to the behavior when NativeMessagingHosts is not written in the registry. Is there any information about solutions to problems or causes?

Expected results: Launch app via NativeMessaging from browser addon

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64 rv:109.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/114.0

I want to be able to voice type searches in firefox on my laptop computer. I'd like to access and use the microphone to type when using firefox or on any site I visit via firefox. I want to put the cursor in a text box of any kind (e.g., a search box), turn on a microphone and voice type so that the words I speak are entered, like I do on my phone.

I'm amazed that "voice type in firefox did not yield any usable results. Please advise.

I am on a unstable internet connection and while trying to download a large file it gets often interrupted. By default Firefox deletes the .part file and I am forced to again download from zero. Is there a config that I could change so Firefox keeps .part files so I could continue resuming the interrupted download?

I feel stupid but I can't find a way to add buttons for single addons to the menu-bar on top. I know in the past this was possible but now I have to click the button for "extentions" and there all addons can be found (see first screenshot). I would rather have buttons for single addons available in the menu-bar, for example for my ad-blocker. I tried "customize" but there the addons don't show up for some reason (see second screenshot - sorry that it's in german). I am not browsing in private mode in case you're wondering.

Edit: Okay nvm, I figured it out already. I didn't know I had to right-click the addons while in the extension-menu. I still find it kind of weird that the addons don't show up in the customize-view anymore.

Hello. I run Firefox as my main laptop (Mac) browser. I have added Zotero to manage my writing reference citation library, and have downloaded the current Zotero Connector for Firefox. I should be able to add references from online, by using the Zotero save icon that should appear on my Firefox toolbar. But this icon is nowhere to be seen and I cannot see how to make it appear. The whole advantage of Zotero for me as a writing academic is pinned to this function, so I am anxious to get it working. How can I get the Zotero save icon in its proper place on my Firefox toolbar, just to the right of the search window? Many thanks

Firefox 114.0, Windows 11 Home Version 10.0.22621 Build 22621 , 1Password-4.6.2.626 extension

Today, for reasons unknown, my 1Password extension, (an old and non-updatable version that I've used for many, many years), is non-responsive. The icon still resides in the Tool Bar, Windows ToolTips "sees" it as "1Password", but clicking on the icon has no effect. The extension is shown as Enabled in Firefox's Manage Your Extensions page.

I think I've tried all the "usual" things here: rebooted the computer, uninstalled and re-installed the extension and rebooting, checked the setting in 1Password itself to see that it's associated with "Mozilla Firefox 114.0", (the program still opens fine outside the browser).

This seems to be related to Firefox 114.0. On my other computer with the same Windows 11 version but using Firefox 113.0.1 had no problem with 1Password, but as soon as Firefox updated to 114.0 the same problem with 1Password appeared.

Anything that I might be able to do to get 1Password working?

Firefox was acting weird for a few days, so I refreshed it. Now my extensions in the toolbar have vanished, and I can't figure out how to pin them back. I read online instructions and saw a couple of videos, and they basically suggest that I click on "customize toolbar", then drag the addons onto the bar. Except that in my screen, my addons don't show up in the selections, so I can't drag them up. The addons are installed, and the weird thing is that I have ONE addon on the toolbar, but if I unpin it, it also doesn't show up in the possible selections (I had to press undo to keep it). Help?

I set my browser to use English instead of my local language and I expect sites to use English by default. Now for some reason Gmail showed me a "do you want to leave this page" browser dialogue in language other than English.

Turns out, there's a new(?) option to set alternative interface languages, and I suppose websites can now choose which one to use?

Wow, just noticed, even tooltips on this website aren't in English anymore. This is extremely annoying.

I'd love to remove the alternate language from that list and leave Firefox interface exclusively in English. There is no option to remove the second language, only to move priority (see screenshot).

Searching through about:config with "language" didn't help. The closest relevant result was for the dictionaries. I do not have problems with dictionaries; "alternate" did not bring any relevant results either.

Hello Mozilla Support Team,

Since one of the last updates firefox Download Setting seems not work properly...

Into Settings > Files and Applications > Downlods > Save files to option is ALWAYS on, even when "Aways ask you where to save files" option box is checked. When I open a PDF in view mode with Firefox, it automatically download it to the location described into "Save Files to"..in my case Desktop. It seems that the "Save Files to" option doesn't gray out when "Always ask..." option box is checked.

Do you have any idea why I can't chose just one of the two options?

Thanks for you help...

Alex
