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?

Just updated to the latest firefox version 119, and noticed that the url links are now all underlined again. Checked the support page that says it can be undone in settings, but when I opened up to the said setting page, there's no option to uncheck underline links. Where else can underline links be disabled?

Hello, On 18th Oct this year, blogger would not let me upload picture files from my computer - it gives the message 'Allow google.com to use cookies - you will not be able to access your files if necessary cookies are turned off'. I click Accept but nothing happens, so I click close and the window goes away without solving the problem. Uploading and publishing blogs with images was working with no problem two days earlier. I was still logged into my gmail account and had not made any changes. This is what I have tried. 1 - Switched off enhanced tracking protection for this site, as suggested by Firefox. It allowed me to upload 1 image into a draft post but this had disappeared the next time I opened the draft. Since then I have been getting the error message and not been able to upload images. 2 - cleared the cookies from google, as suggested by firefox. No effect 3 - cleared the cache and site data as suggested. No effect. I followed this with closing Firefox and reloading, logging back in to gmail, and still the problem persists. Can you help please? best wishes

Quick background: I live in the US. I wiped my computer while traveling in the Netherlands. I installed Firefox while in the Netherlands. I quickly noticed that the default language was Dutch. No biggie, I looked around and "managed language" to English in the Firefox settings.

The problem is that Firefox is still stuck on Dutch mode. Even the spell checker is stuck. Internal messaging is stuck (e.g. the messages on the bottom of the page while loading a site). I just went to DuckDuckGo and it defaulted the page to Dutch.

I understand that I could reinstall Firefox while I am at home (US). But I think this is a bug. The browser should be able to switch languages in the settings, etc.

Let me know if I am doing it wrong.

I used Linux Mint Debian Edition 5 and now I am on the latest 6 Faye. I like using Pandora on FF and have no problem on playback. How ever, the level of sound will start and default to some were of %50-%80. So I'll have to select sound/settings/applications and it'll show FireFox: % not at %100. So I turn it up, every single time. How ever this does not happen on any other webpage like youtube for example. I tried this with LMDE 6 brand new after full updates and no sign in's except for Pandora to get into my account and it'll do the same thing. I have a 5.1 Dolby sound system and my 4K tv hooked up to the PC and either way will do the same thing only for Pandora. This is truly not a big deal, how ever it is annoying as I LOVE to play LOUD music while I game on my Console(s). I fill it is in something with config:ff but I don't want to mess around to much. Any idea's?

Hi, I would like to customize the apps that firefox shows me when I click the address bar. In the attached image, you see youtube, google, reddit, wikipedia, twitter. I would like to remove some of these apps. How can I do that?

Also, there are suggested search engines on the bottom, including amazon, bing, ebay. How can I customize the apps which appear in that list? Again, I want to remove some of these apps.

Thanks.

I often see that some pages take up too much memory. This critically affects the performance of my laptop with 8 GB of memory. However, I was unable to reproduce this behaviour. Now I have caught two web pages.

https://linuxhandbook.com/sort-top-command/ 

and https://www.tutorialspoint.com/how-to-find-number-of-ram-slots-in-linux The first page quickly takes up 1-2GB and continues to drain memory. The maximum usage was 7 GB on a laptop with 16 GB of memory. This behaviour is the same in Firefox and Chrome. The second page quickly takes up 2GB, which is very noticeable on 8GB laptops. Why do these pages take up so much memory? Most importantly, how can you protect yourself from such an unexpected memory consumption?

Hi,

Just installed Firefox (again) as I want to move away from Chrome/Edge. Overall I like it but having the following problems...

The 'Home' key on the top of my Thinkpad no longer functions. When using Chrome or Edge, clicking on 'Home' brings me to the top of the web page I'm looking at. Very handy.

For scrolling long pages, 'PgUp' and 'PgDn' are useful for scrolling sections at time.

But in Firefox, none of these are working properly. the 'Home button does nothing at all. I have used 'Fn+Left' and this works sometimes, other times it does nothing.

The Page Up and Down keys are hit and miss. Sometimes the Page Down button will take me to the bottom of the page, while the 'PageUp' will take me up for a section or two and then stop working.

I'd really like to stick to Firefox but this functionality is important for me and it's very annoying not having it working properly.

Any tips or help will be appreciated.

Thanks, B

Suddenly, now on FF 119.0.0.1, JPEG Images no longer open in new tab when clicked with mid-mouse-button (previous behaviour, wanted), instead they get downloaded, safed to DL-folder, and maybe opened in 3rd-party-app. I tried to change the Open-with settings, but to no avail - there's no option to 'Open in Firefox'/Internally. (Only Open with../Download)

I've tried older guides on the topic, which didn't apply here it seems, also cleaned cache, etc.

Why did default CSS behavior for a nested/child element change from "initial" to "inherit" after update?

I updated from version 106 to version 118.0.2, then to 119.0.1. The last to updates made a local HTML page behave differently than before.

The problem is this: the "inside text" below was not(!) bold before the update, I suppose the containing element of the text defaulted to "initial," but began to default to "inherit" after the update.

This is HTML:

  <TABLE>
    <TR>
      <TD class="group">
        outside text
        <TABLE>
          <TR>
            <TD>
              inside text
            </TD>
          </TR>
        </TABLE>
      </TD>
    </TR>
  </TABLE>

This is external CSS linked to the page:

 TD.group
   { font-weight:bold;
   }

So I added "TD.group TABLE{font-weight:initial;}" to the CSS to make it work as expected/before.

I wonder why this change was made by the developers, Did I miss any changes made to HTML/CSS specification?

Thank you

When clicking a link to a website, it opens my default browser, which is firefox, but it opens a new window with no add-ons, custom settings, cookies, a blank browser. After the recent update as of 3 November 2023, all my add-ons and settings were completely reset, as well as bookmarks all deleted, so I created a new profile to save all my settings. The new window that gets opened does not have any cookies, so it is not logged into anything. It also cannot combine with my other firefox windows and tabs.

Hello,

Sometimes, when I click an embedded/hyper link within Firefox, say I tried clicking a link provided after I google searched something, the tab itself would hang for 10 seconds before it would begin loading the site. When I say "hang", I mean that the entire tab becomes unresponsive to my clicks, I can't refresh the page, I couldn't change the address bar to a different link (it would allow me to manipulate the address bar, but the browser wouldn't reflect on that change, instead just going to the link I had clicked before the hang after the 10 second delay) and my mouse just stays as one sprite/disappears all together (when on the tab).

I find that this isn't a full browser issue as I can easily just start another tab and try there, but this issue is prevalent in that it randomly hangs any one tab I'm using for 10 seconds, and it's not just with Google.

I've identified that it isn't an extension issue or a different tab being used (tested in troubleshoot mode), nor an accessibility issue (as far as I know). I've disabled both my firewall and antivirus temporarily and it still occurred.

It's gotten in the way of a lot of work and I haven't been able to find anything regarding this exact problem on the support site. I've been dealing with it since my first installation of firefox (a few months ago).
