In the Flatpak version of Firefox 103.0.2 the resize handles do not appear when you hover over any of the 4 edges of the firefox window unless you hold down the left mouse button, then they appear, but you have to get the mouse pointer just right before pressing the left mouse button. I notice on several forums that this has been like this for the last 2 months, are the team at Mozilla working on a fix, cheers

Hi Firefox

For the past few updates you have changed your user interface (UI) from time to time and I have to say I am not really a fan of any of the new ones. However, it was once possible to get some add ons like "classic theme restorer 1.4.5" to restore the older more compact and efficient look of firefox. However, I can't find any of those sort of add ons anymore and trying to manually change the look, revert settings and so many more options suggested on the internet is clunky, inefficient and quite frustrating to try and make work.

Is there any way to revert the UI back to a more classic look like in Firefox 89 (or the one from the verison attached in the image) rather than these newer "messy" ones, or will you hopefullt implement a function in the future where one can select an older UI for the browser? I can see from forums, discussions and more online that I am not the only one who wishes there was a way to get an older UI back as the newer ones, in my opinion are no way near as good as the older ones.

Hope you can help with this

Best Regards Klaus

When I print or save to Preview (PDF), certain embedded images become too large, or zoomed in. This only happens in Firefox, Safari works fine. Firefox on my phone works fine. It's only happening in Firefox on my iMac. I've attached images to show an example of what I see on the screen, and then what prints out on my printer or saves to PDF in Preview.

Firefox is adding +1 before 7-digit phone numbers. There are two things wrong with this. The + sign is only appropriate for cell phones and some websites will not accept phone numbers with the prefix as valid. When will this be fixed?

On some of the sites that support hardware 2FA, I notice in Chrome there is an option to add an android phone for as a security key. I tried this out by adding my Pixel 3aXL as a key. Afterwards, when I log into the site, I have an option to use the iphone for 2FA, and when I select it, it sends a push notification to my phone to approve or deny.

I tried this in Firefox and there is no option for it. In about:config, I tried playing around with security.webauthn.ctap2 and security.webauth.webauthn_enable_softtoken, but neither enable the option. I was wondering what would enable such a support on Firefox?

Hello,

First to clarify, this is a Firefox issue, because every other browser does not have the same issue.

I've tried audios from different websites such as spotify, twitch, instagram, youtube, facebook, netflix, amazon prime.... And the audio are failling, There is audio in the video but it is like when your internet is pretty bad and the audio is not working properly.

I've tried removing all addons, clearing the entire cache and cookier - re-installing firefox. none of the above worked.

Hi, I have noticed that our Extension has started getting a Caution Label with the message 'This add-on is not actively monitored for security by Mozilla. Make sure you trust it before installing.'. Wondering if you can help me identify why the Extension has started getting this label and any help with remediating it so that label doesn't show any longer it would be much appreciated.

If this is not the right avenue for this question would you be able to provide a add-on developer support email as I was unable to find one when looking over the Developer Hub.

Thanks!

I have been able to Opt-Out of my personal information with Google but, I still have an issue with Firefox.

When a search is opened I get the following site with my address information listed: USA People Search.

I keep getting the run-around with that website.

What can Firefox do to remove that information?

Thank you, Marty

When I download a file before I even have a chance to save or open the file Firefox downloads the file and puts it on my desktop. I have to look at lots of .pdf files and this a bit annoying as I have to keep deleting all the files I dont want. The dialog box opens and I always choose open rather than save but Firefox has already saved a copy to my desktop. How can I stop this autosave please ? Cheers.

Something is forcing closure of Firefox periodically (about once a week or so?). This happens whether I have Firefox open or not. If I have Firefox open at the time, the browser closes then reopens at a Microsoft Bing search page ("...goose...") and all the other pages I had open have disappeared. If it happened when the browser was not already open, the next time I open it the home page has been reset as above. As far as I can see, nothing else in my settings has been changed, but I have to go in and manually reenter my usual desired homepage. Are you doing this, is Microsoft doing this, or is some other interloper causing this? Do you know any way I can find out and stop it?
