Win10 and FF75. Not at closing (this function is disabled), but at startup. This can be seen in about:cache and the size of the folder allocated for disk cache. Is any setting responsible for this? Is this normal or is it something I did?

As title goes, I just want to enable hardware acceleration for HTML Canvas2D, is there some ways to enable this? Or it is opened by default?

I have already set "layers.acceleration.force-enabled" o "true", but I have no idea about that does this flag already cover Canvas?

Thanks

I use a piece of software which generates a parent pdf which contains an embedded zip file and an embedded pdf as attachments to the parent pdf. Is there currently a way to access the embeded pdf in Firefox? I'm certain I used to be able to do this, but now clicking the embedded pdf link does nothing. I can still access and download the embeded zip file using Firefox.

Thanks in advance.

p.s. I am aware I can access the embedded pdf through Adobe, but using Adobe I cant acccess the the Zip file without editing the registry. This approach is not an option. Similarly downloading other software is not an option.

p.p.s I cannot post a represantative file

I was on a webpage and with multiple images on it. I went back to the same webpage with a different computer and one of the images is not there anymore.

The original computer, which is not connected to the network at this time still has the image I am looking for on the page.

When I go to download the image it does not save it.

It looks like it is waiting to download the image from the site where the image does not exist.

When I go to Tools>Page Info>Media I can see the image The Location shows the URL and file location but it no longer exists

the size is labeled as "Unknown (not cached)

Is there some way I can download the image as it is on my computer? By keeping the computer offline. I do not want to lose this picture.

It is still slow, somewhat better than it was. But now the menu I had at the top of the page is gone and I used it frequently. This menu included drop downs such as File, Edit, History, Bookmarks, Options. How can I get it back?

Hello,

I have 7 or 8 sites I regularly use to purchase books. The problem is,I have to type every single one of them and then head to their search bars and type the same book title over and over again. Is there a way I can place all of them in a group and then have Firefox search only within those sites for the book titles?

Thank you in advance!

Recently the web push notifications got a popup UI that is really disturbing. Show up on all desktops etc., it interrupts me in what I’m doing. I really very strongly dislike this change.

I would like to revert to how it was before (pre-76.0 ? Not sure exactly which version): - notifications get sent to my desktop/OS’s notification center (running OpenSuse + KDE), - no popup is displayed when a notification is triggered.

That way: - notifications will respect the OS « do not disturb » mode, - notifications get shown through a unified UI for all applications, - I can pick how « interrupting » I want each notification to be, - In particular I can focus while on my computer without being interrupted, and poll the notifications occasionally.

Is there a way (maybe a about:config option) to keep notifications but disable the popup behaviour?

I recently switched to firefox from chrome and am enjoying it for the most part, but have one thing that drives me crazy. When I click on a link for a file such as a YAML file, the only options I have are to open the file in another application or save the file to disk. Most of the time, this is not what I want. I really just need to take a quick look at the file to understand its contents.

Is there a way to set firefox to automatically display the file contents in-browser rather than requiring a separate application?
