Hello all,

Lately I received a report from some colleagues that a certain feature is not working in Firefox that appears to be working on any other browser.

When drag/dropping e-mails and/or attachments from Microsoft Outlook (Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise) to a drop-field in Firefox (88.0.1 - 64-bit) nothing happens.

When using Firefox we can drag/drop files from Windows Explorer, but not from Outlook.

The same fields do work flawlessly when drag/dropping e-mails and/or attachments from Microsoft Outlook in Google Chrome, Microsoft EDGE, Opera and Safari. So Firefox is the only browser - on several OS's - that does not allow e-mails/attachments to be dropped from Microsoft Outlook. We have tested multiple users on different workstation and we have tested drop-fields from several web applications.

Surprisingly I cannot find any solution to this. The only similar cases I was able to find are from a couple of years ago but are about the other way around (so drag/dropping files FROM Firefox to another application).

At this moment I am advising my colleagues to use another browser. But we really want this to work properly with any browser of choice. Hope this community can help us out.

The update to Firefox 89.0 did not fix this problem.

Note: UAC is enabled on the workstations. Disabling does not affect anything. Tested attachments: .pdf, .docx, .html & .xlsx

Whenever I go onto one specific website to listen to music, everything works fine but for some reason, when I open the same website in Private Browsing Mode to avoid getting clapped by the algorithm, it always automatically sets the volume to around 50%. I can easily get around this by just dragging the volume bar up but it has been months and it's starting to get a bit annoying.

I've tried clearing the cache, changing the default volume in about:config, disabling all extensions, clearing cookies & site data, resetting my preferences, refreshing Firefox, uninstalling Firefox, following a guide to clear Firefox's residual files, and clearing all of my computer's temporary files, but it still defaults to 50% volume in Private Browsing Mode

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated

If I enter a search beginning and ending with quotation mark, ie " I get the following behaviour. If I enter

 "Hats

I see

 "Hats

in the eBay search bar. If I add a " after the 's' I lose the first " and end with

 Hats"

If I delete the contents and type a sing " the search bar is populated with

 Hats"

I'm using:

 Windows 10 (all up to date but this has been happening for a while)
 Firefox 90.0.2 (64 bit)

I don't have this issue with any other browser including Firefox on a similar Desktop I have deleted all cookies with 'ebay' in the URL

This is driving me nuts and considering ditching Firefox, at least for eBay. Any ideas what is causing this. I can assure anyone it is genuine, perhaps I should consider a youtube video of this madness?

I have been using Firefox for a little bit on my computer, as I've just formatted my computer to start fresh. But for some reason, SoundCloud audio refuses to play on my browser. Audio for every other website on my browser works completely fine, but for some reason the audio for SoundCloud doesn't work. When I play audio on SoundCloud, my browser says "PLAYING" underneath the SoundCloud tab, but nothing comes through. My tab is not muted, and the audio settings on SoundCloud (the volume slider) is set to max volume. Although I suspected it at first, this doesn't have anything to do with my actual audio device, as it's working just fine and literally all other websites play audio perfectly fine.

Things I have tried:

  • Refreshing Firefox
  • Disabling all add-ons
  • Removing all add-ons
  • Clearing all data

Since the latest update of Firefox (to 90.0.2) I've found that, when confronted with a login-password screen, Firefox recommends a number of login possibilities ... but not the correct one.

As an example, when I log into a newspaper account, I'm offered three emails as possible login names...but NOT the email to which the account is registered. The only password saved in Firefox for that account is the correct one. The newspaper help desk had no helpful answer.

I do not leave my computer running 24/7 and so the browser is closed regularly

I've tried removing the login/password information, re-starting the computer, and then signing in, but this did not solve the problem.

Should I roll back to an earlier version of Firefox, or do I need to leave everything running all the time forever to avoid this?

Thanks! Sarah

(Recently) 08/02/2021, I have noticed that when many of the pages are (re)loaded into Windows-Firefox seem to then move toward the bottom of the page. I would like to have some way too force Firefox to load the page and then move to the top of the page or/and refresh the page and move to its top.

I don't know whether this is a new HTML command that people are using to force me to read the ads rather than the article, or whether this is something that is just a curd and I'm just noticing it.

So I'd appreciate if somebody who is more familiar with newer features of HTML and or a newer features of Firefox can tell me how this occurred and then can either tell me how I can remove it or oh suggest that there be an improvement of Firefox

Thanks

I am unable to clear cache. 2.0MB of cache always remain after I go through the appropriate steps to clear cache. I have tried everything recommended by Mozilla and online. A few times the 2.0MB cleared on its own but then immediately reappeared. This problem started happening around six weeks ago. I checked the cache folder and nothing appears there but when Firefox is open it always shows 2.0MB of cache and it won't clear.

Unable to print the following webiste using Firefox for Windows 10 (build 2101):

https://www.duckware.com/tech/wifi-in-the-us.html

Only the first and the last pages had content, the rest were all blank pages. It's a long website, and possibly uses custom font. But then not all pages were printed blank.

Tried resetting printer settings and starting in safe mode. No joy.

Micro$oft Edge printed the website fine.

So, first off, Firefox is my favorite browser. I love it a lot. I'm also a pretty big supporter of Free and Open-Source Software.

With that said, I was wondering when and if Firefox will fully support ICC V4 profiles and the PNG specification.

I noticed that ICC V4 is not enabled by default, but even after setting gfx.color_management.enablev4 to true and setting gfx.color_management.mode to 1, ICC V4 is still not working properly.

You can test this yourself here: https://littlecms.com/blog/2020/09/09/browser-check/

Also, I noticed that PNG images of large sizes won't display at all in Firefox, resulting in a broken image icon.

You can test this yourself here: https://www.jwz.org/blog/2018/07/png-antics/

These seem to work at least passably well in other browsers, but I don't want to use other browsers! Does anyone know if Mozilla will fix these sometime? I do know that Little CMS is open-source under the permissive MIT license, so maybe Firefox could use that to fix the ICC V4 problem, if that could help. I don't know if using the latest version of libpng will help the other problem, but I know it is under a rather permissive BSD-style license.

I'm using Firefox 90.0.2 in case anyone is wondering.

As we all know the fullscreen mode does exactly what you'd expect, it makes Firefox cover the entire screen, including the taskbar. That's great.

However sometimes I'm running more than one window of Firefox and if only one of the windows is in fullscreen it will cover the taskbar even when I alt-tab to any of the windows that aren't in the fullscreen.

I'll provide a screenshot to show my case. And as you'll be able to see if I mouse-over links in the taskbar they're clickable, so the fullscreen window is still active through the area where taskbar should be once you're running a window that isn't in fullscreen.

That's quite annoying and gets in the way so I'm wondering is that an oversight or a bug (I hope it's not an intended feature) and is there a way to fix that in config or will I have to wait for the developers to fix this in a patch eventually, if they would even want to.

Hi.

I'm a long time firefox user. The past few years, I have not been able to copy text from print preview. This is important to me, as I run a small business and need to copy order numbers from the print preview screen to keep my work flow going. I can do this in chrome, but cannot in firefox.

It is nothing I can copy from a website, as it is a link I click to open the invoice.

The only work around that I know of would be to print the pdf to a file, open the file, and copy it from there - but this is not acceptable because it is too time consuming.

If anyone has something that will work, it would be much appreciated.
