How do I re-configure which microphone Firefox uses after saying "remember these settings" the first time?

Using Facebook video/voice call: Browser asks me for permission to use video and mic AND gives me dropdowns to configure devices for each. Figuring I probably won't need to configure these settings again, I checked "remember these settings" and hit OK. Started the call - video worked, but microphone did not, even though the device was tested and worked. Now I wanted to go back and look at the settings for which devices to use for video and microphone. My BIG mistake: telling Firefox to remember settings. Oh no!

At this point, I figured the internet would have the answer. I can't find anybody who has mentioned this issue. The question: where do I go to change the video device or microphone device for Firefox AFTER I hit "remember" the first time? Or is hitting "remember" the kiss of death for being able to change these settings in the future? I searched Firefox settings: apparently the only settings relevant to mic/webcam are to allow or disallow those devices. Not what I want. An additional question: does Firefox just go directly to the default devices specified by Windows? Regardless of what I told it the first time? That might explain it. If this is the case, it's a major design flaw that it even asked me which devices to use the first time.

My question is similar to "Java Plug-in for JRE7u21?" but all the suggestions there that worked are for Windows, and I'm on a Mac, and I don't want to hijack that thread. For the record, that thread is /questions/958847. aw

I have Mac OS X 10.8.5 Mountain Lion, Firefox 24.0, which says it's up to date, and Java 7 update 45, also up to date. I only want answers for Mac OS X, not Windows, not Linux.

The online Java test works OK in Safari but not in Firefox. Firefox thinks Java is not installed. There's no "Java Applet Plug-in" in the plug-ins list.

Since Safari is OK, I assume there's a bug in Firefox. Can we narrow it down by identifying which combinations of versions (of Mac OS X, Firefox and Java) have the Java plug-in and which don't?

Hi, When I click on a link on a page, I want it to open it in a new Tab and leave the page I'm on alone.

Instead, it overwrites that page with the new one, and I have to hit the back button to get back to that original page (and sometimes the back button get grayed out and I can't get back at all).

I've tried checking the box for: Open links in tabs instead of new windows but that doesn't do it. Then I tried checking the box for: When you open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately, and that doesn't do it either.

I know that a work-around is to hold down the Ctrl key while clicking a link, but I'd like to set it as a default so I don't have to do that.

Any ideas? Thanks!

That's fine, we won't be mad at you. As our service is free, we rely on ads and donations to keep the lights on. If you like what you see, please consider making a donation so we can continue running this awesome service!


I'm still seeing ads on Youtube, but their number might have diminished on other web sites recently.

The plugins and extensions I'm seeing are in the two attachments. I don's see anything I'm doing to block ads.

How do I turn off AdBlock?

I frequently switch between different headsets and speakers using USB audio devices. Whenever I change from audio device to another, Firefox does not change it's audio output to match my current device. Other programs/games follow suit when I change my default audio device and I really dislike that I have to exit out of Firefox completely and reopen for my audio to come through the correct device. It's not a huge issue, but when I have multiple windows and multiple tabs open it can be annoying having to start my browsing session all over again. Any tips to deal with this issue?

Thanks!

I have three devices linked to my Sync account and just two of them seems to be merging information (passwords, bookmarks, ...) on the server.

My devices are:

1- iMac MacOS Mavericks with latest version of Firefox

2- Samsung Galaxy S3 with Latest version of Firefox for android KitKat 4.4.2

3- Desktop PC Windwos 7 with latest version of Firefox

Devices 1 and 2 are merging information to the server but device 3 (the Windows setup) is not merging any information with the other devices.

I have no idea about why not all the devices are syncing correctly but I will like to be able to sync all my devices.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

I had read that in FF v22 Web RTC (Real Time Connections, PeerConnection and DataChannels) are enabled by default. This is a big no-no for me.

Where can I turn them off, is it possible to do this in one click (as for JavaScript or images)?

Will they bypass disabled in Windows Remote Access service?

Anything else I can do to block peer-to-peer and any remote access to my computer, while reading the Web will remain possible?

Thank you.

I know this question has been posed more than once in the past. The answer has always been: go back to school, learn computer programming, get master classes and practice with coding until you make it. I am using Watefox since when Firefox tab bar was moved close to the sky. I just decided to try Firefox again: I have installed it and the first thing I tried to do is moving the tab bar below the address bar. It seems that there's no easy way. How can it be?, I wondered. With Waterfox I use the Tabs on Bottom add-on and that's it. You may believe my need is frivolous, but for me that makes the difference between keeping or uninstalling Firefox. Bottom line: is still forbiddend to wish to get the tab bar where I believe it should be? Thanks,

Shockwave Flash was causing my browser 40.0.3 to start videos I did not want to play, I added an add-on to block Shockwave Flash; however, this became very cumbersome to enable and disable when i go to sites that required Flash like a greeting card site. I found another add-on called "Video without Flash", it told me to remove "shockwave Flash" I did, now I can not get any video on the greeting card site. Is the problem that I removed Shockwave Flash or something else, I have the latest Flash Player from Adobe.

I need some help.

Opening next to the previous-in-sequence tab absolutely does not work (I'm a stack type) so I end up dragging URLs to the far right of the tab bar -- which is a pain. This wasn't a problem with older Firefox versions e.g. 54, but it's broken now (61) and none of the available extensions address tab location.
