As of 9/22/17 my computer tells me it is not compatible with Miracast which is blocking my wireless network. I believe it comes fromthe last Firefox download. No one seems to know a lot about this Miracast.

How long would it take changes made to bookmarks on one device to sync and be reflected on another device? (same Mozilla account signed in on both devices)

I changed a couple names of my bookmarked pages so that it would shorten the pop-up menus and sub-pop-up menus that appear whenever I hover over different folders of "Bookmarks" I've saved. I'm seeing those changes reflected on the device on which I made them but not on my other computer where I'm also signed in to the same Mozilla account.

Any idea why those changes aren't syncing and being reflected across all my devices? Or... how long do such changes typically take to sync?

Thanks! -Nate

Every time I mispell a URL it forwards it to some search engine. I don't want this! What if I accidentally copy-pasted something personal that I didn't intend and it gets forwarded to yahoo? On the Search options I am given the option to remove all except one of them. There has to be at least one or the Remove button is greyed out. I want ALL of them gone. I don't want mispelled URLs to be redirected to a search engine.

Difference between two settings in about:config?

I use hardware acceleration, and it works okay except for the looks that come with it on the fonts. They look jagged and "not so smooth" as they could be - and I have bad vision. I found out somewhere that they look smooth if I set either "layers.prefer-d3d9" or "gfx.direct2d.disabled" to true. How are these different if it could be explained in a simple way? The fonts look good with any of these set to "true", BUT it seems some performance is lost. Which one causes the biggest performance drop? And a second question; Is there a complete reference/documentation for all the settings in "about:config", I like a good read (and to explore settings), but it's hard when some entries have either been removed, and it's difficult to know when a new one is added... I like to know what is going on in Firefox, but finding up to date info isn't the easiest thing.

I was troubleshooting an issue where Firefox was not loading an Extension as expected in Firefox 55 32bit. From looking at the Javascript calls the old Plugin which is still available was able to be loaded by Firefox. We found that plugin.load_flash_only was set to False on the affected browser. When we changed this back to plugin.load_flash_only = True, the extension then properly loaded.

I thought from documentation that the workaround was disabled in Firefox 53+? Was this recently changed or inadvertently re-enabled?

The question:

Can Firefox show resolution of image before its name in title? If an image has a name too big I can't read its resolution, and that bugs me.

(asked by supasd)

I've done some research, not yet successful.

Would any of you guys happen to know how to do it? What's the smartest/most efficient way? Can it be done with a userstyle? or is a userscript or add-on needed? Feel free to provide any type of suggestion or solution whether it is userstyle or whatever.

I innocently had a "supposed" reliable company put ads on my site with their coding.

I now learn that they are putting "unwanted software" ads on the site, triggering the notice that the site has "unwanted software" and warns users to go away. This is very damaging to the site.

Now that i have removed ALL of the offending company's coding from my site, how do I get rid of the notice? Specifically, where on the web does Firefox (and others) get their info from and how can I contact them to get the warning removed?

Thanks for any help.

Hello Is it possible in Fx to perform a mass update/modification on the URL addresss (e.g. Location Field) from about 800 of my bookmarks?

This is required as a site I use has changed their domain, so I need to modify the URL addresss by switching the domain name and change from http to https

from http://OLDdomain/xxx.. remaining of bookmark location address to https://NEWdomain/xxx.. remaining of bookmark location address

I am currently doing this manually by cut and paste in the Bookmark Manager (Show All Bookmarks window) but I am a bit tired after already doing 50 -- so wondering can this be automated in some way.

thankyou
