FF 69.0.1 I clicked the "star shaped icon" which you click to "save this URL to bookmarks." It turned blue as usual. I then clicked on it to invoke the dropdown menu allowing me to enter the words I wanted to use. The menu did not drop down. I used a "two finger click" (OSX) and an option to "remove from address bar" appeared. I thought this would clear the bookmark, but instead, the icon itself went away.

How the HELL do I get it back? WHY didn't the dropdown appear as usual?

IIRC, in v60.x ESR the icon at top used to display bookmarks by default, and you could also look at history. Perhaps I'm remembering it wrong (It's the icon that looks like 3 books with the 4th leaning to the left.

In v68.8.0esr which is now installed it shows "Recent Highlights". I want to get the old behavior back. The following will remove the recent highlights (except the title "recent highlights"). But the bookmarks are not shown unless I click on Bookmarks.

#appMenu-library-recentHighlights { display: none !important; }

How do I get the old behavior back?

I know I can add an extra icon (display bookmarks menu), but I'd still need the other one to access history. Perhaps if there were a History icon and a bookmarks icon, that would do as I don't use sync, and there is already the downloads icon, and I don't need the Pocket List.

I have a problem that occurs on most websites that use icons. All icons show up as blank white boxes, including Google Maps and Wunderground Map. I've attached a screenshot of Wundermap below as an example. I assume its due to some sort of security setting, but I'm not sure which one.

My extensions are DarkReader, uBlock Origin, HTTPS everywhere, and Privacy Badger, but the problem persists even when I disable all of those extensions.

I am attempting to perform a 2 steps verification.

Firefox is asking me: "Open your authentication app and enter the security code it provides." What "Authentication app"?? On my Mac? On my iPhone? I have been unable to figure out what Firefox means.

I have tried a number of those apps, but none of the codes was accepted (Authenticator, Google's Authenticator, iDnow).

Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. /Boris D.

We currently would like to upgrade our centrally installed Firefox ESR version and would like users to keep their settings and be disrupted minimally. Specifically we would like to upgrade from 68.4.2 to the current 68.8.

I am aware that as of Firefox 67 a dedicated profile version is used for each Firefox version (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/dedicated-profiles-firefox-installation).

I had assumed that as it is only a minor upgrade of the same ESR version a new profile would not be necessary, however it creates a new empty profile by default.

The suggested solution to use Firefox Sync is not an option as creating Firefox Sync accounts for all our users would even be more overhead.

Is it indended behaviour that new profiles are created for the same ESR (major) version? Is there a simple way to migrate existing profiles?

Thanks.

We're trying do practice music over WebRTC based Video-Conferencing tools like Nextcloud Talk or Jitsi so all participants have so send audio input at the same time. The default behavior seems to be that only one (the first or the loudest) or whatever can talk and the other participants are muted or the volume is set lower. For sure this is helpful in "normal" conferences while only one is talking and the others are listening but its impossible to practise music.

It would be great to have an option for disabling the "noise cancellation". I found some ideas doing this in the web like here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/37326846/disabling-auto-gain-conctrol-with-webrtc-app

var constraints = {

audio: {
  echoCancellation: false,
  noiseSuppression: false,
  autoGainControl: false,
}

};

But this solutions seems to be on the Application-side and not Browser-side.

Has anyone an idea how to disable it in Firefox e.g. some settings in about:config?

When uploading images in some web sites (such as web.whatsapp.com and others) the image is uploaded but it is blank/white, even if I visit the site with another browser I see only a blank image. When uploading to the same web site using other browser, for example Chrome, the image uploading has no issues and it is displayed correctly. I've already tried to disable the AdBlocker but nothing changes.

Hi,

I need to use a german authority website in context with firefox (68.10.0esr) to transfer data to the authority. After putting in the data and choosing a ZIP file for upload, a app (java) should open. This is a governikus secure software to confirm my identity by using a card reader and a trustworthy ID card. But the java app doesn't start. I use java 8.251. I have removed all popup blockers. The versions I use are recomended by governikus. I tried this with the microsft IE11 as well, doesn't work ... Could the problem be java sript? I have to activate it but I don't know if it is activated and I don't know how to activate

I hope you deliver the solution ;-)

Regards

Whenever I open a new window, it starts in a certain standard size (at least in Firefox 77). In earlier versions it would always open "maximised". So for me this behaviour changed (not sure exactly in which version it changed). Since I use my browser almost always with maximised windows, I have to maximise manually all the time now, and that is inconvenient. How can I get the old behaviour back? Preferably I would be able to establish a size I like (maximised, or otherwise as big a size as I set), and then save those settings for the future. Alternatively, I would also be happy if Firefox remembers the size of the window I closed latest. Is there any way to accomplish this?

YouTube videos (both embeded and on website) seem to load (I can see thumbnails when I hover cursor over timeline) but will throw "An error occurred. Please try again later." when I click play.

Youtube debug info: "errorCode": "fmt.decode", "errorMessage": "An error occurred. Please try again later.", "wr": "GENERIC_WITHOUT_LINK"

This also happens in Private Browsing and Safe mode (addons disabled) in Firefox 75.0 and 76.0.1 (different user profiles) This issue does not occur in other browsers I have installed (Chromium, Iridium, Google C, and Pale Moon)

Everything was working fine a few hours ago, I have made no hardware, software or config changes.


EDIT: Just noticed the edit button, added a cropped screenshot of the issue.

Tonight I noticed something really weird when I tried to reply to a comment on Youtube. Initially, I tried to reply from the bell button in the notifications and soon I realized that the Spacebar was not working. I thought it might be stuck, but it was not, since it was working fine in both the address bar and the search bar. Asynchronous keys function was disabled. Then, I went to the video and tried to reply from there. Guess what! The video was being resized using the shortcuts depending on what I was typing! For example "t" changes between normal and theater mode and "i" makes it picture-in-picture. What is going on? I am sure no key is locked, i even restarted my pc and the same thing kept happening. Then, I turned it off and on and the problem was persisting. Everything works fine on other applications, just YT seems broken for some reason. I tried to type on YouTube on two other browsers and everything worked fine. I don't think it has anything to do with the windows update, since it only happens on firefox, which I don't intend to change. Is there any setting to lock/toggle the Youtube shortcuts on and off? Sorry for the length of my description and thanks a lot in advance!

Not sure what the right place for this is; I wasn't able to find a Firefox support forum specifically for web developers. If anybody knows of a more appropriate forum, please let me know.

I'm trying to intercept the opening of a popup window from JavaScript, but I can't find any way to trigger the debugger on this condition, and I don't want to set the breakpoint manually because the source I'm working with is obfuscated and it would take a lot of work to track it down manually. I currently have Firefox 68 ESR, but I could upgrade if needed. Does any version of Firefox have a way to set a breakpoint on new tabs/windows opened from JavaScript, or is there a way to break on the `window.open` function which I suppose is what is being used?

Add a column to the bookmark library that indicates the folder where the bookmark is located. For example, in the screen shot (bookmark1), for the last bookmark, have a column that will show the location (NOT URL) of which folder(s) that bookmark is in. Based on the second screenshot (bookmark2), the folder is 'Home\Time Wasters\'. 'Home\Time Wasters\' would be in the 'Bookmark Folder' column, that would need to be added. See bookmark3.
