When I go into fullscreen, by any means (F11 or dedicated button next to zoom settings), only the firefox toolbar disappears. The window taskbar stays there. Issue is not present on other installed browsers.

I tried: - Troubleshoot mode - Tinkering with windows accessibility settings for Firefox - On troubleshoot mode, Individually flipping these configs (+ refresh): - - browser.fullscreen.autohide - - browser.link.open_newwindow.disabled_in_fullscreen - - browser.link.open_newwindow.disabled_in_fullscreen - - widget.windows.fullscreen_remind_taskbar

I've searched for answers. I tried the About:config and changing some settings to false and others to true as suggested (e.g. browser.search.context.loadInBackground), etc., and of course I have the option chosen under settings.

This is a new computer. My old computer would switch to the new tab when I right click it, but this new one won't.

Any latest fixes?

Hi,

After updating Firefox to 116.0.1 my tabs keep randomly crashing. I get some crash reports *occasionally* - meaning not all crashes produce a crash report - but I'm not sure what to do with them, they seem inconclusive. The last report (not for the last crash, though, which didn't produce any report) is bp-3334b934-58b5-4226-887a-235300231117

Hello,

As I said: fresh install of FF 119, only Privacy Badger and uBlock Origin icons are showing on the taskbar. I tried TyDraniu tip "Click the jigsaw puzzle icon, then right-click on an extension, then select Pin to toolbar" but with the right click there is no such option as "Pin to toolbar".

What's going on?

I don't know if it is because i closed firefox task end, or if it is a bug from update to v119 (when i reopened firefox, there was the updated tab). But now when i fly my pointer on "recently closed tab", instead of only having the 15 last closed tab of my current firefox windows, i have also the 15 of each opened firefox windows. means if i have 2 page it show 30 tabs, etc. the first 15 being the tab of the current windows (ex: FF windows 1) and the 15 next for the other opened one (FF windows 2), when i check "recently closed tab" on the other windows it is reversed (the 15 first tab are the windows 2 closed ones, and the 15 next from the windows 1). It is me, or a global bug (or new feature). If the second, how to return to the former option (means having only the tab closed from the current windows showing)

An answer from legit source (longtime moderator or developer) is welcome. I'm sorry if this has been asked before. I couldn't find it and I'd like to make my point.

I didn't like the design of Firefox when they first started this design with so much space wasted for tabs and toolbar. Every time I open Firefox it feels odd with gigantic empty spaces if I come from Chrome/Vivaldi which are thoughtfully compact.

I have 14" laptop and Firefox makes the UX very less intuitive.

As of now, I'm using the workaround for compact mode that was posted in this forum numerous times. It says (not supported) beside compact mode which makes me feel like that this feature is going to be removed completely in the future. That's the tipping point where I will stop using Firefox completely.

So, coming to the question - wait - Subject is the question...

Also i cannot open the Downloads folder within the Menu bar from firefox I tried entering into safe-mode and still couldn't open I also tried using another User Profile under "Right click Firefox -> firefox profile manager" to try to see if it was something from my user profile that was causing the issue but i also couldnt open in another profile.

I also tried on a different browser to see if it was my device problem but i could open it. i tried on Brave and Chrome and it worked.

i dont know what to do, this was working normally last week and now it doesnt work, Even in another profile with no configuration done no extension and not logged in the "Open file" button doesnt work

I understand that the "Bookmarks Menu" Icon (see attached pic) can be used and then: 2) "Manage Bookmarks" can be selected (to get to the "Manage Bookmarks" <selection> screen).

But is there a 1-click Icon solution to access "Manage Bookmarks" (other than the keyboard one)? Or is there a link address that would access the "Manage Bookmarks" screen directly?

Firefox 119 doesn’t use system (/usr/share/fonts) or user’s (~/.local/share/fonts) fonts for rendering

I use Kubuntu 23.04 with Firefox from mozillateam/ppa apt repository, got update to FF 119 today (package 119.0+build1-0ubuntu0.23.04.1~mt1) and after the update Firefox stopped using system-wide installed fonts (either from /usr/share/fonts or from ~/.local/share/fonts).

So for example fc-list finds Gentium Plus (/usr/share/fonts), Iosevka and Junicode (~/.local/share/fonts) on my system: % fc-list -f '%{family}: %{file}\n' | rg -i 'gentium plus:' Gentium Plus: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/gentiumplus/GentiumPlus-Italic.ttf Gentium Plus: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/gentiumplus/GentiumPlus-BoldItalic.ttf Gentium Plus: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/gentiumplus/GentiumPlus-Bold.ttf Gentium Plus: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/gentiumplus/GentiumPlus-Regular.ttf % fc-list -f '%{family}: %{file}\n' | rg -i 'iosevka:' Iosevka: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/iosevka/iosevka.ttc Iosevka: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/iosevka/iosevka.ttc Iosevka: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/iosevka/iosevka.ttc Iosevka: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/iosevka/iosevka.ttc % fc-list -f '%{family}: %{file}\n' | rg -i 'junicode:' Junicode: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/junicode/otf/Junicode-Bold.otf Junicode: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/junicode/otf/Junicode-Regular.otf Junicode: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/junicode/otf/Junicode-Italic.otf Junicode: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/junicode/otf/Junicode-BoldItalic.otf

but when I try to apply the style `font-family: Gentium Plus`, `font-family: Iosevka`, or `font-family: Junicode` to an element, Firefox doesn’t use those fonts and instead in the element inspector I see Noto Serif is being used instead.

Before the update the appropriate system fonts were being chosen for rendering by Firefox.

I am using MacOS Monterey 12.7.1 with the latest Firefox version. When in full screen mode, if I want to refresh the screen I move the mouse pointer to the top of the page to get the tools to display but when I move it down the the refresh button, it quickly hides again before I can refresh the page. Does anyone know of a solution to this or a keyboard shortcut I can use to do a page refresh while in full screen mode?

Hello.

Lately i found strange bug in FF 119.0 (ppa - deb, not snap version), ubuntu 23.10 I can't download any file to mounted ntfs volume. Firefox instead creates thousands of empty files. Once it was 10001 or 10003 other time it was 20000 of files. I tried private-window, no change. I have removed all add-ons - no change.

For example i was trying to download https://fedorapeople.org/groups/virt/virtio-win/direct-downloads/stable-virtio/virtio-win.iso and i ended with (only few last lines):

-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9989.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-998.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9990.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9991.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9992.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9993.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9994.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9995.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9996.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9997.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9998.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9999.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-999.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-99.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest.exe
