Hi,

When I go to Facebook on Mozilla and try to use the messenger app to run a video call (using microsoft surface running windows 10), the default camera is my rear facing camera. There is no toggle i can see to switch it to the front camera. I cannot do so in window settings and have spoken with Microsoft support which tells me to call mozilla support. I cannot do it in any of the facebook settings either. I cannot do it with camera settings in mozilla either. I can use the front camera successfully from chrome! I can from Edge! I can from Zoom. I like mozilla and want to keep using it but if I can't resolve this I will likely just switch to chrome permanently. Please let me know how to select the default camera in mozilla. Thank you.

I have Bing set up as my default search engine and it has worked fine for years. Now all of the sudden, any search I request, whether in the address bar or search window is completed by Yahoo. I have tried everything I know to try to fix this but to no avail. Also, when I click the Add-ons button to check for add -ons that I perhaps placed in error, a new blank tab opens up. I'm wondering if I should just delete Firefox and then re-install it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'd like to hide the title bar in Firefox. It takes up valuable on-screen real-estate, and doesn't really serve a purpose (other than showing a web page's full title, which I'm not interested in anyway).

In this screenshot, I have Firefox on the left, and Brave on the right. Now, I know it's only about 30 or so vertical pixels, but the title bar in Firefox is taking up a lot of space that could be used for actual web content.

Is there any way to disable this top bar? Or is it baked into the actual program itself?

When I press ctrl+shift+s, I get a menu in the upper-right corner of the browser. It has a “Save full page” option. However, I still have to go and click on that.

Is there a shortcut to just directly take a screenshot of the whole page? Is there a way to configure such a shortcut if there isn’t one by default?

Thanks!
