hi, i have a dozen extensions that i wouldn't mind keeping in case i want to use them sometime, though i know you're supposed to keep extensions to a minimum to avoid complications and slowness. Does disabling add-ons avoid the problems just like deleting them altogether would? thanks!

Dear Firefox community

I wonder if anybody else is experiencing problems with O’Reilly recently. I think the problem started more or less 2 weeks ago. The problem is that the page is not loaded at once, but more "on demand," that is, it loads once we scroll down (fig. oreilly_firefox_01). It takes like 1s or 2s to load to load the rest of the text (fig. oreilly_firefox_02). Maybe it's related with the last Firefox update. With Chrome it works as expected.

It's not a big issue, just annoying.

Hello,

I downloaded firefox app on my android phone and noticed that the browser or pages are brown in color. I am not computer savvy so I don't exactly know how it arrived that way. But I love it and I would like to have it on my laptop.

I have vision problems and I am photo sensitive. I eyes hurt bad, so much that tears run down my face and my nose run while trying to use the computer. Is this brown screen available for laptop. If so how would I access it.

Thank you,

Hello,

When there is a form to fill out in Firefox, whenever I fill it out and press "refresh", the things that I wrote still stay there. However, I don't want it to do that, I want it to refresh the forms as if I am visiting the page from new. How can I make it so that Firefox does this? It is weird because it used to do this but now no longer does.

Currently using FF v94.0.1 64-bit (I usually lag an update or two behind to ensure stability -- my highest priority -- and avoid surprises.)


1) I notice that unless there are a sufficient number of tabs opened across a browser window as stretched to a given width, thus triggering the left-right ("<" , ">") tab-scroll arrows to appear, the TAB MENU itself (aka "List all tabs" button, a "v" down-arrow on the far right) is not present. Nor is there an equivalent way to initiate a tab search within the main MENU BAR (FILE, EDIT, VIEW, etc.) that I could find. This restricts access to the SEARCH TABS feature.

This "automatically keep-it-tidy feature" is not really an issue when only a single browser window is open. However, I have many windows (on different topics of interest), each with many tabs.

I can switch to another browser window that has enough open tabs to have triggered the TAB MENU, then search from there. Or I can use the address bar "%" method).

(Actually, I'm pleasantly surprised that Firefox, running on my older PC, is stable with hundreds of tabs open as accumulated over many months. Clearly I should change my habits!)


2) On your support page titled "Search open tabs in Firefox" at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/search-open-tabs-firefox , it describes (via examples) using the "List all tabs"/TAB MENU button to access the "Search Tabs" feature. It also outlines using the address bar "%" method.

Unless I misread the article, what it does not make clear, is that the "Search Tabs" feature works the same as "% xyz" in the address bar; whereas using "%xyz" (note the missing space) yields different results (apparently the same as "xyz %"; but "xyz%" yields nothing). Nor does it explain the reason for the different results or the importance/desirability/weirdness of using one method over the other -- it simply presents the examples. I believe this help page could use some expansion/clarification.


3) I noticed that when performing "search tabs" via either the address bar (using "%") or via the TAB MENU, the results do not include any open tabs using "containers" (apparently the same as any open tabs within "private" windows).

I am increasingly using the "container" features by opening then permanently assigning many "sensitive" web sites to one of the container categories. The increased security is a nice idea.

However, with many browser windows open, each with many tabs, this inability to search for and conveniently find open tabs is increasingly frustrating and is nudging me back towards NOT using containers.

Can't some solution be found to maintain the privacy between tabs (and perhaps even private windows) while permitting a tab search to work more thoroughly?


In summary, I simply want to be able to find ALL occurrences of any partial string of searched-for text within ALL tabs in either their title OR address, normal AND container tabs, and preferably in normal AND private windows.

At present I see only a list of 12 results and no means of listing more. Sometimes my "known" open (normal/non-container) tab is not present in that short list (perhaps a preference/sort order is needed for tab titles vs. addresses).

Why not a "List more results", or a selector button to scroll-list "10, 20, 40, 100, ALL", or a button to open and continue with a listing of ALL matching results in a separate pop-up window, etc?


Thanks for all your good and hard work!

Ésta, es una sugerencia de implementación de funciones para el Firefox Daylight.

This is a feature implementation suggestion for Firefox Daylight.

Estoy convencido de que sería un gran avance el poder contar con una función automática activable/desactivable que lograra un "modo oscuro" durante la visita de cualquier página web.

I am convinced that it would be a great advance to have an automatic activated/deactivated function that achieves a "dark mode" during the visit of any web page.

Se trataría de una función similar a la que ya disponen algunos otros grandes Buscadores como, por ejemplo, pueda ser Opera...

It would be a function similar to that already available to some other large Search Engines, such as Opera...

De esta manera, Firefox también se sumaría a la corriente por la defensa de la salud visual al utilizar Internet.

In this way, Firefox would also join the trend for the defense of visual health when using the Internet.

Un guiño para cualquier otro ser humano inteligente: ésta misma página de Firefox para la escritura de mensajes, está de blanco riguroso y cegador. Y no es que lo blanco y brillante sea algo malo, es que hablamos de pantallas cargadas de luminosidad que agotan nuestra vista. "Negro sobre blanco" para describir la posibilidad de leer un texto sobre papel físico (un libro) es una cosa. "Negro sobre blanco" para captar la lectura de la imagen proyectada por una pantalla electrónica es otra cosa muy diferente. A mi juicio, demasiado diferente.

A nod to any other intelligent human being: this very Firefox page for writing messages, is in stark and blinding white. And it is not that white and bright is a bad thing, it is that we are talking about screens loaded with luminosity that exhaust our eyesight. "Black on white" to describe the ability to read a text on physical paper (a book) is one thing. "Black on white" to capture the reading of the image projected by an electronic screen is quite another thing. In my opinion, too different.

Es por esta razón por la que ruego que sean informados los ingenieros de Firefox sobre esta petición.

It is for this reason that I ask that Firefox engineers be informed about this request.

I posted a similar request here: https://mozilla.crowdicity.com/post/742615, because "Submit Feedback" link redirected me there. Maybe this is the right place for the feedback.

The release note of FF Ver:93 states this:"When available system memory is critically low, Firefox on Windows will automatically unload tabs based on their last access time, memory usage, and other attributes. This should help reduce Firefox out-of-memory crashes. Switching to an unloaded tab automatically reloads it."

This is something those of us with modest RAM (4GB, in my case) have been waiting for, for quite a while. But, FF continues to hog significant memory in spite of the claimed changes as above. I don't see any perceivable changes to my system performance thus far even a few days since the update. The issue, as you'd know better, elevated RAM usage invariably causes a continual spike in Paging, leading to excessive Disk (HDD) usage > resulting in an unresponsive system, which eventually ends up in a system freeze (in my case at least). The only way out being a hard power-down and restart of the system.

I have also set the "Content process limit" to 4 in the settings to no avail. We'd appreciate if you could configure FF behavior to adapt when system resources are low than wait for things to be critical.

12.4.21 FFox 78.15 mac OS El Capitan 10.11.6

Had single user admin setup using FFox for years. Once I set up FFox years ago, I long forgot what my email sign in was, of the three emails I have.... aol, yahoo and gmail.

Recently a file corrupted. Apple techs suggested opening second admin as test user. Test user admin worked fine. In process of testing, I discovered FFox in THAT tester admin opened differently.... no more Bookmarks Toolbar, no History Trail.

One Apple tech suggested looking into 2nd admin (test) account to see my sign in. It was AOL acct. I did not select a sign in acct. I simply opened FFox browser to test it. Went back to 1st acct (original) and FFox signed in with Yahoo acct. I never realized this. All those years had been opening through Yahoo acct.

Apple tech said all I needed to do was switch AOL acct back to Yahoo sign in to once again see all my previous Bookmarks Toolbar and History Trail. I've spent HOURS searching how to simply switch accounts in same admin browser. Why is something so simple, impossible to find. Perhaps it can't be done.

The closest I came was to do this - click upper right corner (3 lines) in browser and click on email address > click Acct settings > click Manage acct. When the Accounts page appears, I see only a Primary email entry (AOL) with no options next to it, and below it, Secondary email (which says None) with button next to it indicating Add.

When I click it, new window appears asking to enter Secondary email address. I enter yahoo address, click SAVE and red box appears saying "ACCOUNT ALRERADY EXISTS" I KNOW THE ACCOUNT ALREADY EXISTS. IF FFOX KNOWS THIS, WHY WON'T IT ALLOW ME TO SWITCH TO IT?????????

That's as far as I can go. Even signing into the Sync acct asking which account to sign in with, I use Yahoo but next time I open FFox, still back to AOL.

I will say, once I was in my 2nd test admin and opened Chrome to test as I did FFox, Chrome AUTOMATICALLY updated to same Chrome from 1st admin (corrupted) which included same Bookmarks etc from 1st admin Chrome.

But not so with FFox. Not so.

If there is anyone on the planet who may have knowledge of how to simply switch sign in account from AOL to Yahoo, I would LOVE to meet that person. Thank you!

Hi,

I'm using Firefox ESR 78.15 with a slightly modified Arkenfox user.js

I keep getting two "Unknown Collection" messages in the console after startup.

The first one reads Unknown Collection "main/messaging-experiments" in the headline, while the following text is shown in the drop down menu: "UnknownCollectionError resource://services-settings/RemoteSettingsClient.jsm:155 sync resource://services-settings/RemoteSettingsClient.jsm:455 InterpretGeneratorResume self-hosted:1158 AsyncFunctionNext self-hosted:693

The second one reads "Unknown Collection "main/cfr-fxa" in the headline, with the same text in the drop down menu as above.

Can someone please explain what these messages mean and if it is something to be concerned about?

I've spent quite some time, but couldn't find out.

Hello,

I want to know one thing, you have added a feature that allows Firefox to generate a random strong password. That randomly generated 'strong' password has everything except a special character. How can you say the password is secure if there is no special character in that. Almost 95% of the websites don't accept a password without a special character. May be give an option in the settings to customize the suggested password like character types and character length. That would be just perfect.
