Hello! I'm a student looking to pursue a mentorship with Mozilla or Firefox, but I haven't been able to figure out who to contact about that, or how. Is there an existing internship/mentorship process with Mozilla? How should I go about seeking this? All answers are appreciated, thank you very much!

I'm looking at the User-Agent strings from MacOS systems running the lastest versions of MacOS 11, 12 or 13. They appear to be reporting they are running MacOS X 10.15.7 Since all versions of MacOS X 10.* are now well past EOL, this causes problems when using this at least do some minimal testing against the system being "supported". Yes, I know it's easy to forge your UA strings, but most people do not, and it at least provides a reasonable base line of what to expect from users.

I use Firefox on Linux, on a wide screen, usually with multiple windows open at the same time.

Specifically, I have a smallish window containing a calendar view. It's annoying that new tabs get created in that small window, because I have to move them manually to another window and resize that. I'd like to be spared the clicks and drags to get that done, or always needing to remember to move the focus to another Firefox window after doing something with the calendar.

Is there a way to accomplish the following: 1. When I've got a Firefox window open that I don't want new tabs in 2. And I open a link from outside Firefox (say, from a mail in Thunderbird or from my IDE) 3. A new tab doesn't get created in the window from 1. 4. Even if that window has the focus. 5. Instead, the URL gets opened in either a new tab in another Firefox window or a new Firefox window

I'm fine with a stable add-on, if that's what it takes to do this.

Any ideas greatly appreciated!

My Firefox refuses to load MetaCPAN's OpenSearch.xml file, even though I can access it without problems.

So this got me thinking, as Opensearch files are relatively easy to write, is it possible to import my own opensearch.xml into Firefox?

If it's impossible, I'll submit a ticket to bugzil.la.

The Subject says it. I have this line "Your browser is being managed by your organization." in Config under Sync. I am a private user so there is no organization. I want to get rid of this.

I'm trying to troubleshoot why Google Chat will not sound an audible alert while Google Mail does. I can't find any settings that would affect this so naturally I suspect this organization line.

I'm using the Mozilla .deb and not the Ubuntu snap.

Thanks, John

I am trying to upload a homework assignment, but when I click the upload button, no window launches for me to select the file I would like to upload. I also had a possibly related problem where I tried to download a PDF, but when I clicked the "save" button for the print to PDF function, nothing happened there either. Attempts to save said PDF via the buttons on the PDF viewer didn't work either. I have tried running firefox in safe mode, and that didn't help. I have tried restarting my computer, and that didn't do it either.

Any idea what could be going wrong? My assignment is due tonight and I literally can't upload it due to this issue. Any help would be nice.

I use a web app for learning guitar at https://www.fender.com/play It used the microphone to grade your playing Using Firefox 107.0 (64 bit) under Linux Mint - after a recent upgrade the mic stopped working at this site Fender play says, " Microphone access | We require microphone access to give feedback on your playing | Please click "Allow" or "Share"above to provide it for us."

But 'old' dialog box requesting permission never shows up. Address bar shows 'mic icon', but clicking on it does nothing

If I google "mic test" the mic seems to work fine at a "testing" site

I think Fender actually uses MatchMySound1.com to analyze -- Has some setting permission possibly changed? Works in Firefox 102.5esr using Debian

BTW: = Settings | Privacy & Security | microphone [settings] doesn't seem useful

Thanks in advance

☰ -> History -> Manage history I want to see the date I added first browsed X website, but I can't see the date, I just see the date I last visited.

I tried with: ☰ -> History -> Manage history -> Views -> Show Columns -> Added Now I can order to see kind of when the first time it was that I visited it, but not a date or anything.

How can I see the full date information when I visited websites? I can't see any accurate dates or any information of when I visited websites, because it it overlapped by the previous visit.

Can I do something to access this information?

I think there used to be a direct setting for full page (fine by me), but I can no longer find it.

I use this constantly on other machines, and NEED it here on this one !!!
