I am using the built-in spell-checker. When I right-click on an input field, there is a "Check Spelling" checkbox in the popup menu to enable the spell-checker. Once enabled, another "Languages" item will show up in the popup menu, allowing me to choose from the built-in dictionaries.

This list in huge. Ideally I would prefer if I there was a most recently used list, or I would be able to configure which choices to offer by default, and maybe have an additional menu item to show the rest/all.

Is there any way to handle such use-case? Alternatively, what is the process to raise this as feature request? Would this be a feature worthwhile to do so?

Hello,

I've got a laptop Dell XPS 9380 that comes with an Intel UHD Graphics 620 as Video Chipset. I run in under Fedora 33 with the distro provided package (as of now version 84). The playback on some videos is choppy, I have one picture on 10 I'd say.

How can I fix that, can you point me some solution ?

thanks

Hello!

"Last seen before X ..." is not updated in the Firefox account ("https://accounts.firefox.com" -> "Devices & Apps") with Windows-/Linux-Firefox 84 Version !

For Firefox Android-App and ESR-Version "Last seen before X" is already updated in the Firefox account!

I think this problem already existed in an older version of Firefox!?

Yesterday I shutdown my PC running Ubuntu 18.04 while Firefox had a full screen window on each of my two monitors. When i turned it on today the window on my right hand monitor opened correctly. However, the window on my left hand monitor had these problems (see the uploaded image) it was not full screen. It was split into a window at the bottom of the screen that showed the expected contents and a black window at the top of the screen that took mouse input. Note the 'KCOM webmail...' popup by the mouse cursor over the upper window. A right click on the desktop had no effect on the left hand monitor, as if something considered the window full screen. After restoring down the window on the right hand monitor a right click on that desktop showed the expected menu. I recovered from the problem by moving the mouse cursor over the black window until the 'Maximise' popup appeared and clicking. The window then became full screen and has behaved correctly since. I have xpdyinfo and xwininfo outputs in case they are useful. I upgraded from Ubuntu 16.04 to 18.04 about 2 weeks ago and have been using Firefox almost daily since then. I have often seen it restart correctly when I restart my PC, although perhaps not with two full screen windows. I don't know if this is a known bug. I hope this information is useful.

In the past I used to be able to turn encrypted sni on I did a firefox reset yesterday then I reinstalled my add ons

and I re-enabled encrypted sni by setting: about:config network.security.esni.enabled = true

but when I test it on https://www.cloudflare.com/ssl/encrypted-sni/ the test takes a lot longer and also everything is green except esni: "Your browser did not encrypt the SNI when visiting this page."

So something is clearly wrong, but I don't know what it is.

how do I fix this?

I am using Firefox with Default Search Engine set to Duck Duck Go. I seem to be unable to connect to duckduckgo.com be it either through typing my search in the address bar or duckduckgo.com. All I get is: "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." Internet connection seems fine (no trouble connecting to other sites). Sometimes clearing "Cached Web Content" helps but it is troublesome to clear cache after each browser restart. How can I get the Duck to work with the Fox?

Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) in Ubuntu 18.04

I often load pages with many tabs. These tabs are NOT refreshed when loading, so data may be days old. It's easy to think data is fresh, since Firefox just started, but WRONG !

This wastes lots of time, both in errors and manually restarting each of many tabs.

I need to find how to set Firefox to NOT use old data when it starts. I don't need to refresh every few minutes or hours,, JUST when starting.

HOW do I accomplish this ?!?

Thanks!

Hi all,


I've got an offline 2008R2 workstation with Firefox 65.0.2 installed, just recently it will only display a blank page. Clicking options does nothing as does navigating to about:config, it just sits on the blank page and doesn't react.

I've tried to reinstall the current version, the latest stable and the latest ESR with no change. I made sure to delete the following each time: C:\Program Files (x86)\*mozilla* C:\Program Files\*mozilla* C:\ProgramData\Mozilla C:\Users\Me\AppData\*\Mozilla Computer\HKLM\SOFTWARE\*mozilla*

Nobody knows of any recent changes to the workstation I've turned off AV Windows logs don't show anything Starting FF in safe mode does the exact same thing

Additionally I'm not allowed to take any screenshots or anything off it. :(

I highly appreciate any advice anyone has!

Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) for Ubuntu (running Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS)

So when editing text in a textbox on Gmail, I can press and hold [Shift] and then use arrow keys to select text, but I cannot use Page Up/Page Down to select faster as expected. (Works in Chrome)

Background: Trying to trim long email threads to avoid them becoming infinite and causing a quantum singularity close to where I am sitting.

Not sure if this is a Gmail or Firefox issue.

Anyone have any ideas?
