How to make Firefox open local font file for local page?

Hi,

I'm working on a web site whose owner wants an unusual font : papyrus

I have the papyrus.ttf file in the root directory of this site, both locally and on the server.

In <style>, I have : @font-face {

   font-family: papyrus;
   src: url(papyrus.ttf);

}

And I add : font-family:papyrus; among the <style> settings for requested parts of the page

This functions fine on the server, but not locally. So to view the pages I have to upload them after every modification, and this is a bit tedious.

Is there a way to make it function locally, please? Either by adding some more code to the pages or by changing firefox settings?

Firefox can open image files locally, <a href> functions both locally and externally, so why wouldn't font files also function locally?

A workaround could be to make Firefox display all web pages in papyrus, but this would be a last resort...

I have searched for "How to share tabs between profiles" in firefox.

I was offered this option:

Share multiple tabs

   Visit the tabs tray by tapping the number next to the address bar, this number shows how many open tabs you have:
   Tap the three-dot menu button in the tabs tray.
   Select Share all tabs.
   The list of tabs to be shared will appear.

Visit the tabs tray - not very clear. by tapping the number next to the address bar - which number? I have more tabs that can fit across the screen and am not seeing any number/s.

Could someone help me with this please? I have a lot of migration to do.

Random Unusual Freezing, Yet Not Unresponsive

Hello,

I've recently encountered a curious issue with my Firefox browser (Firefox version 102.0, Windows 11 Insider Preview 10.0.25145.1011). At seemingly random times it will freeze for between two and five minutes (roughly). UI elements become completely unresponsive and the cursor does not update when moving over the browser window. The window will not minimize. Yet, Windows Task Manager does not report the application as being unresponsive. While never a common problem, any freezes in the past would eventually cause the Windows Task Manager to identify it as unresponsive.

I have disabled "recommended performance settings" and hardware acceleration to no avail. Everything seems perfectly normal immediately before and after the freezes, and I've yet to identify how I can trigger them. I do not recall having made any changes to my browser before the freezes started occurring, though multiple Windows updates have taken place since then. If I'm too impatient to wait I will end the Firefox processes via Windows Task Manager and restart it so I can return to my tabs without having cookies deleted. I have 13 plugins mainly covering privacy/security concerns. Is there some sort of debug tool I can engage to see what's occupying Firefox while it's frozen? I've just found the Firefox Task Manager, and will see if it can offer any additional information during/after the freezes.

Thanks, Logan

After a Windows11 update re-boot, I had to sign-in on many things - Firefox was one of them. When I tried, I entered my name and password with no errors. But, then I was asked to verify that I was me by signing on to my YouTube app on my tablet.

Why?

I have no intention of keeping this "malware" but did download it to get access to Firefox.

Please change the secondary verification for something else.

Some webpages cause the browser to automatically reload them at periodic intervals. Sometimes these intervals are too short and in the middle of reading the webpage it gets reloaded.

How do I prevent Firefox from accepting a reload command from the webpage I am currently browsing?

I did not see an answer to this in the FAQ.

Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this and answering if you choose to do so.

Hi,

I'm looking for a plugin or website that is able to convert voice to text capability on Firefox. For Chrome there are many solutions (VoiceNote II, Voice Recognition, Dictanote). And I need to use it on firefox.

In firefox, as I think, permissions settings/UI haven't yet been sorted out however, so permission can't be granted to use it by the user, so it can't be used.

Thank you!

Is there any way to prevent a website from adding history entries in the back button dropdown menu just because I clicked a button, which opened a confirmation modal, and closed the modal, remaining on the same initial page?

For instance there is a site I use, which has a list of my posts, with buttons to delete the posts. I click the delete button, this opens an "Are you sure?" modal window, I click delete, the modal closes, I am on the same original list page with the same URL, but now I have another pseudo-page in my back button history that I have to go through.

If I do this with three more posts, I will have an additional three back button history dropdown entries to navigate back through.

When I exceed the number of entries shown in the dropdown, I have to keep clicking through the quasi-paginated list of duplicated back button history entries for the same exact page, to get back to the page I was on before ever going to the list page.

For instance, it happens on sites that use Discourse for forums. I end up bookmarking the wrong URL if I forget to scroll back to the top of the page.

I can't find an addon (like Neat URL) that does anything like this, so I wondered if there was anything in about:config or such that might.
