Why after a Firefox upgrade can I no longer access my Microsoft 365 account. I get the log in page from my saved Bookmark, I log on , I then inoput the second tier pin code texted to my phone, but the page then stalls and goes no further . It did yesterday, and the only thing that's different is that today I had a Firefox upgrade pushed when I opened up ??

The sideways scroll arrows on each line of videos on the Amazon Prime Videos website have stopped showing on my Firefox (76.0.1 Win10), but they still appear in Chrome. Makes navigating tough. Could this related to the last Firefox update, or is it an Amazon issue?

I keep periodically getting a pop-up notice in the top right of my screen, but only on my laptop (I have a desktop I also regularly use and I generally use the Moxilla Firefox browser on both). The Pop-up purports to be from Firefox. The notice says, "Firefox can't update to the latest version." Below that statement it continues, "Download a fresh copy of Firefox and we'll help you install it." There are no logo's or any other representation it is actually from Firefox. I suspect it is a scam of some sort. Please advise...a legitimate notice from Firefox or a scam?

Hi

I looked at a couple other threads on this problem, which said that you have to install a dictionary and (for example), "You can see which dictionary is selected if you right-click in a text area and open the Languages sub menu". But when I right click in a text area, the context menu has no mention of spelling or languages, and I can't find any place in the Options where one would install a dictionary.

Besides which, why doesn't Firefox tell the poor user that he has to install a dictionary, or put something about it by the check-box in the Options that refers to the spelling checker? And why, in the past, did I never have this problem with Firefox, but only now with a new computer? (Windows 10 as before.)

I am restarting FF. I am on 76 and the install is for 77. A window pops up asking for my credentials to install a new helper tool. I don't recall seeing this before and it looks a lot like Oracle's Java installer that tries to install a bunch of crud. In that case cancel continues with the Java install. In this case, Cancel stops the FF upgrade.

What is this tool and why is it not described better to know have a better guess as to whether it is safe to install?

To reiterate, websites the employ a custom right click context menu work, but doesn't override the default Firefox context menu. The websites I've tried to use the right click context menu are Slack, and Gmail.

Attached is a screenshot of me trying to right click an e-mail inside Gmail's website.

I've tried searching the web and starting Firefox in safe mode, but I still haven't been able to solve this issue.

Every time I reboot my computer, Firefox unchecks the "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" checkbox and as a result, saved logins do not appear. It is annoying and inexplicable. The logins aren't lost, but I shouldn't have to recheck the checkbox every time I start the computer. Is this a "feature" to force me to use an account to make passwords transferable by storing them in the cloud?

Since the last update [76.0 (64-bit)], whenever I enter a fullscreen mode in any media player on a website (e.g. Youtube) I can no longer Alt-tab normally, even if I close the fullscreen. Instead it takes 3 times to switch to another window - first press of the Alt-tab combination causes Firefox to lose focus but remain on top, 2nd press returns focus onto Firefox and then the 3rd one actually switches to another window.

This also occurs when simply switching to fullscreen on any other website as well (by pressing F11).

This also causes any newly open windows to be displayed under the Firefox window.

Pressing Ctrl-Alt-Esc minimizes the window normally and the issue does not occur then, however, it occurs again whenever I go fullscreen.

The problem occurs also in the Safe mode. Antivirus did not find any issues, so I don't believe the cause to be external.

OS is Windows 10 Home, 64-bit.

How can I hide the full address of the website like I can in Safari? Like, in Firefox, the full address of the website is always visible, unlike in Safari, you can hide the full address of the site in the address bar. e. g. Google Earth is https://earth.google.com, right? In Safari, what you would see by default until you clicked the address bar; google.com. the reason, [[file:///Users/DavidZhao/Desktop/Desktop/Screen%20Shot%202020-06-05%20at%204.03.17%20PM.png]

In Safari, [[file:///Users/DavidZhao/Desktop/Desktop/Screen%20Shot%202020-06-05%20at%203.59.41%20PM.png Google Earth on Safari]

In Firefox, [[file:///Users/DavidZhao/Desktop/Desktop/Screen%20Shot%202020-06-05%20at%204.03.59%20PM.png Google Earth on Firefox]

Just in case the file links don't work, uploaded images below (in order)...

But then, if this feature doesn't exist, at least add this feature

My problem is that when I join a Google Meet, and get the Firefox popup that says "Will you allow meet-google.com to use your microphone?", in the "Microphone to share:" dropdown, it only lists the mic on my webcam. However, I want to use the headset mic I have plugged in.

I'm on Windows 10, with a Logitech C920 HD Pro webcam, and using the on-board audio on a MSI MPG Z390M Gaming Edge AC motherboard.

I know there's nothing wrong with the on-board audio or headset, because I can select and use this mic in Discord and other apps just fine.

Also, if I unplug the webcam, then Firefox will offer to use the on-board mic, but of course, now I have no video.

In both cases, it never offers to use the audio line-in, which I've wanted to use to present to a meeting the output from of another device. I've tried installing Voicemeeter, hoping that would solve all my issues, but Voicemeeter's virtual microphone also never shows up in the "Microphone to share:" dropdown.

I'm reluctant to use these notifications at all until I know what they could change without telling me.

Hi,

I'm trying to change the theme (only using standard dark and light themes) from a linux terminal. My attempted routes include changing a user.js file (the rest of the file works), in particular setting extensions.activeThemeID (I've also attempted doing this in about:config, as well as editing the extensions.json file).

I can change the theme by going to add-ons in a browser. This works fine. I was hoping to automate it (it's not the 1980's - clicking three times to change to a default theme seems unnecessary).

Am I missing something that must be changed in about:config or any other file to change the theme? The extensions.activeThemeID changes when changing the theme in add-ons and seems the likely option but does nothing if I change this value myself.
