In one of my windows, 9 out of 10 pinned tabs have been lost and replaced with "new tab" (which are all empty, of course).

The only unusual thing I can remember was using a private window a few days ago (a feature that I had never used before). Is this the cause of this bug???

Thanks.

Gmail shortcuts not ignored in search bar

I'm a gmail user and use its keyboard shortcuts extensively. The problem I've had in Firefox (but not Chrome) is that 2-3 times per day, when I'm typing in gmail's search bar, the shortcut handling code kicks in.

Here's a more detailed example:

  1. I hit `/` to go to the search bar
  2. I want to search for "peach", so I start typing that
  3. When I type the second letter, `e`, gmail recognizes that as the shortcut to archive the current message.

If I reload the gmail tab, it'll start working again.

I'm on MacOS. I've got five add-ons installed which have permissions on gmail (see attached image), but none strike me as the type which would affect javascript keyboard event handling. The most likely would be LastPass or uBlock origin.

Has anybody else encountered this? Found a solution?

Hi community.

Recently, I bought a new computer. It's an M1 Mac. Trouble has occurred for the upgrade from Intel mac.

When I print PDF with Firefox, it prints at an really low resolution. but, print with Safari can print as usual.

How can I print normally? Do you have any knowledge on the matter.

Many thanks,

Entering full screen disables menus on other monitors

I'm using Firefox on a desktop (OSX Catalina 10.15.7) with multiple monitors. If I go into full screen mode on any youtube video , e.g., Welcome to Firefox (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRlmP6xWdw0), not only do I lose access to the menubar on the fullscreen monitor, I lose it on the other two monitors I have open Firefox windows.

The browser.fullscreen.autohide setting does not make a difference. I would expect that the only monitor that the menubar is hidden on is the one displaying the fullscreen content.

The attached Monitor1, Monitor2 images show the missing menubar on the respective monitors where a Firefox browser window is open.

The initial handshake takes typically a couple seconds in Firefox, while it takes in Chrome or Safari typically < 1s to display the first content.

Here an example of opening firefox.org: https://share.firefox.dev/3jpZRG4

I've tried all the recommended procedures without any success (personal mode, disabling extensions, starting with clean profile, ...)

Even this form I had to send twice because there was a timeout when sending the data up.

My internet connection is always > 30Mbps, so that should not be a problem.

Hi guys,

I wanted to include Pinterest walls into my Forum and the only browser where they are not shown is Firefox. The add works fine in Opera & Safari. My javascript.enabled is "true", but maybe it's another Javascript setting that needs to be true too?

The code is like this: <a data-pin-do="embedBoard" data-pin-lang="de" data-pin-board-width="900" data-pin-scale-height="400" data-pin-scale-width="450" href="https://www.pinterest.de/amazed130610/rayna/"></a> <script async defer src="//assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js"></script>

Does anyone know what to do?

Thanks a lot!

Hi.

Two things keep happening in the Firefox preferences menu on my MacBook Pro, Every couple of days or so.

  1. The default setting for Home > Homepage and new windows reverts to Firefox home (default) even though I have set the URL to which i want FF to go when I launch it.
  1. Likewise, I set the Default search engine to Google, but it (along with the above) defaults the Browser default (Yahoo!). I have to reset it + go to the Search Shortcuts list and remove the Browser default.

This started happening suddenly a few months ago. Finally, I got irritated enough to ask for help here.

Thanks for your help.

I am using different container/color tab for opening stories on Medium. Somehow the google script used by Medium website is able to figure out that am logged in as a user on my main tab. If in the same tab container, I go to google.com/gmail.com, it asks me to sign in. How can we avoid this?

Hi, I've got an issue when I ask to download and save a file from a website. The macOS finder window is well openened, but partially mixed with the current web page. it not put on the top. Most often, I must open another app, like Safari and come back to Firefox in order to put it on the top and to be able to change the file name, select de folder and at the end save the file. Attached sample.

It is the same when I ask from Firefox menu to Save As a web page.


Thank you for your feedback.
