Hello, whenever I use the right click, the pop-up menu triggers but it immediately registers a left click. This behavior is VERY annoying since it means that I accidentally go to the previous page whenever I right click.

So far it only happens when right clicking on the web page itself, and only on Firefox.

I'd like to help you all at Mozilla in the evenings. I have just one issue with that. I have installed Linux Mint Cinnamon and made my theme dark and downloaded the add-on "Dark Background and Light Text". It is almost 100% wonderful. Redshift is activated too, in order to avoid the blue light, so that I will keep the rhythm of my sleep. I love it.

However. Every time I start a new window in Firefox or click the "+" my whole screen turns WHITE!!! This is VERY annoying. I want it to be dark, of course. This is also an issue if I am going to help you out at Mozilla in the evenings. Dark Background and Light Text does not work in your own forum. Why not integrate this add-on into Firefox?

In my opinion this is a very high priority issue, not only for this reason, but considering that we will all would save energy, batteries and the environment when using AMOLED technology together with Firefox, especially if it is very easy for the users to discover and to activate.

Dear community,

I use Firefox on a Linux laptop and an Android phone.

For the past several months, I have been successfully using the Lockwise app on the Android phone to access passwords synced from my computer. I was not logged in to Firefox proper (the browser) until much more recently. Apparently, I have failed to notice that my passwords never synced to Firefox browser.

I have now reinstalled the OS on my laptop and all my passwords are gone there. They still appear in the Lockwise app, but none of my Firefox browser installs (which I all added to Firefox Sync much more recently than Lockwise) can access them. Essentially, it is as if they are only stored on my phone, anymore.

How can I get them back to the browser?

Kind regards, fNek

salve, Sono uno sviluppatore web. Ho notato che dopo gli ultimi aggiornamenti Firefox si è allineato alla linea di Chrome e Opera, creando un problema non da poco. Il problema è che non rispetta le impostazioni header per NON memorizzare la pagina in cache. Più in particolare le pagine da me create impostano il Cache-Control a "private,no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate,max-age=0" ed in più imposto l'header PHP (tramite .htaccess) per non memorizzare i file tipo php, js,css,html. Aggiornando la pagina tramite l'apposito comando "Ricarica" il browser mantiene in memoria i file obsoleti (js e css) non aggiornando la cache come richiesto. L'unico modo per aggiornare i file è "eliminare la cronologia del browser". La stessa cosa accade ricaricando gli iframe.

In prevalenza facciamo delle applicazioni WEB per cui è necessario che i file siano sempre aggiornati in base alle ultime modifiche, da cui la necessità di NON memorizzare in cache. Questa pecca ci ha spinto a SCONSIGLIARE ai nostri Clienti l'utilizzo di Chrome e Opera in favore di Firefox. Spero prendiate in esame il problema. Attendo un Vostro riscontro.

I tried setting webpage through the method I knew, i.e Go to Menu->Preferences->Home and set the Homepage and new windows settings to the URL you want.

But the bug is that, when I close Firefox and then open it fresh, it starts a blank page and does not load my required homepage. I have to click the home button.

When I already have Ff window open and I start a new window then it loads up my home page but, that redundant, since I could have opened the page I want in the first place.

Is there a solution to this?

Please help. Thank You.

Hi! Since a few months I can't open the opening folder after downloading a file.

Normally, I download a file, then click on the button "open containing folder" on the right of the download file. the default file manager opens up then at the level just above the file downloaded. But, a few months ago, this stopped working: Clicking on "open containing folder" launches the file manager but directly at the level of the file: And this makes the file manager launches the file by the way with the default program.

Ok. So Im on Arch Linux. Tried downgrading 78, works correctly. I have firefox dev edition ver 80 and the left channel is about 64x quiter than right. Does any one have similar problem or knows how to fix it? Firefox problem - confirmed (ALSA, pulse with or without jack aren't the problem there) It's not a preference, setting, addon - confirmed. (started browser with brand new browser profile) Isn't update problem - disconfirmed (It did break after update. Downgrading and faking profile(browser version) worked fine.)

any help, or even a way to find what and where it is caused would be helpful. I did look into a shit ton of setting and debug menus, to find that everything is in norm.

(pls ignore these extensions, i will do cleanup soon and they aren't a problem here anyways)

I dual booted Ubuntu 19.10 in my laptop alongside Windows 10. The videos in my Firefox browser (on Ubuntu) lags in between, it plays smoothly and after sometime it lags. The lagging is not so worse, but still it disturbs me from watching the video. If I play the same video in Windows in Firefox the video plays well. The main problem is with the site ' www.geeksforgeeks.org ' in Ubuntu (Linux) and the same site plays well in Windows Firefox. I have tried fixes like : 1) 'set media.benchmark.vp9.fps = 0' 2) https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1245735 but they didn't work.

I'm Developing a Web Application

I make a GET request to a web app with Fetch API, It shows "No headers for this request" in developer tools, and the cookies get changed as if the request were sent without any cookies and the web app assigned a new cookie. Are cookies sent by default with GET request using Fetch API in firefox?

When accessing page directly instead of Fetch API the request seems to go through every other "F5 Press", and otherwise the same problem occurs.

It works on chromium - trying to figure out what could be different - if it's a problem with firefox or my backend - any ideas? Thanks

menubar no longer shows in a new window opened with window.open? I am running Firefox Ver. 79.0 (64-bit); Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0; on Ubuntu Bionic 18.04 I use the following javascript code in <head> to open a new window: <script> </script> The body is as follows: <body bgcolor="#F2E8DE" onLoad="nameThisWindow()">

Click <a href="javascript:openHomePage()">Open Homepage</a> to open Homepage.htm in a new Window. </body> This code will not display the menubar in the new window (HomePage). The new window opens, resizes, relocates, has scrollbars, has address bar and has the [Open menu] option to the right of the address bar. The way it should except for the menubar on my desktop computer. If I right click on [Open Menu] in the new window it shows a check mark before Menu Bar. If I uncheck it, it closes the menubar in the window that opened it (HomePageCaller). If I click on Customize in HomePage, it opens the customize window in a new Tab in HomePageCaller. If I open a link in HomePage with "Open Link in New Tab" it opens the link in HomePageCaller. If I open a link in HomePage with "Open Link in New Window" it opens the new window with a menubar like it should. I have opened about:config to change all nine of the "dom.disable_window_open" options to "false" and restarted the computer. This did not change anything? I have removed all content from the<head> except the <title> in the new window page. I have removed all content from the <body> except a line that says it is the new window. All to no avail. Thank you for any help someone can provide, Rob

In the last few days, a process called MainThread, using a lot of CPU time, has started appearing in my Ubuntu system monitor "top". I was worried that it was malware, and checked to see if it might be part of software I had recently installed. After checking with the software providers I had most recently dealt with, I didn't find any that said the MainThread process belonged to them. Then I noticed that the "firefox" process had disappeared from the system monitor. I suspect that MainThread is the new name for firefox, but I would like some confirmation of that theory. If that is the case, why change the name of the process from something recognizable to something unrecognizable? Thanks for any help you can give!

The distorted colors impact video on many sites including yourlearning.ibm.com, webex.com, twitter.com, mlb.com, etc. They do not impact youtube.com which displays video correctly.

Opening links in any desktop app to open up in Nightly is broken for me since a few months, I didn't really change anything on my side. The bug report so far has been ignored, and this is a pretty major breakage. Does anyone have an idea what I could check out on my system to get this fixed or provide info for the bug so that somebody actually looks at it? EDIT: Please note Nightly initially launches fine, SO THERE IS NO PROBLEM OPENING THE PROFILE. There is also no problem with a previous instance being stuck preventing the new one from launching - I don't want to launch a new instance, I want to open a link, and I can interact with the running instance just fine and it's definitely not stuck.

This is what I get 50% of the time I try to open a link:

"Close Firefox" "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile."

(While firefox is perfectly happily running.)

xdg-open https://same-url-iclicked

works. So that makes it even weirder. My system is a boring Fedora 32 desktop, and I didn't change anything I could think of when this suddenly broke.

Here is my two months old ticket that so far went ignored: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1645038

YOUTUBE: No Home Page & No Initial Comments Section via FireFox: In YouTube via FireFox the YouTube Home Page and Comment Entry on videos is missing. Why is this? Ever since the dawn of FireFox this has always been missing. Please go use Chrome, Chromium, and Brave. You will see when you select a certain YouTube Channel, you will get a Home Page. You do not get this in FireFox. The second issue that has always been is the fact that you cannot comment on videos because the Comment Entry is missing via FireFox.

FireFox needs to correct this problematic issue. I am using Linux Mint 19.3 Tricia. I have also used Windows 10 and the same problem exist there. I want the FireFox Team to use Linux Mint to see what you get from the FireFox Browser in the Software Manager. Question; is this the same Browser that is currently available via the website? If not, then we have a huge problem with the Linux Team and Linux period that needs to be resolved. Both the FireFox Team & the Linux Team needs to work together to get this fixed.

I would provide Screenshots but I want people to actually go and see for themselves. Go get Linux Mint and install FireFox via the Software Manager. Go to YouTube to see what I am talking about.

I recently transitioned from windows 10 to elementary os. My preferred download option is to ask me where to save each file. And so when I download something, the file manager opens.

This one thing makes we simply switch to a different browser. Firefox, downloads and installs updates in the background. OK. It needs a browser restart to be able to setup the update. Not great but OK. But suddenly it would completely disable the user from not using the browser until an update is performed (See Image). But why? Not OK!

I am totally fine with the browser needing a restart to finish update. But why wouldn't Firefox not let me decide when I want that. Until I am ready let me use the browser. I really wish they don't freeze the browser like that.

Is there someone looking to address this issue in a future version? Is this only happening to me?
