Hi there. I'm a blind web developer and I was wondering if there is some way to make the Firefox developer console more screen reader friendly. As it stands, I have no way of viewing JavaScript runtime errors or much of anything besides the element hierarchy when inspecting an element, and even this only provides very little information. I ask because there seems to be a big focus lately on testing for accessibility, but the tools to do so seem completely inaccessible themselves.

I would welcome any suggestions on how to use/improve the dev tools with a screen reader (I'm using NVDA) or an add-on I can down load that would be more friendly to me. I saw a mention of one called "Firebug", but that appears to be an outdated post.

After updating to the newest version, I am getting a blank screen for several seconds before the browser loads up correctly. I have followed all steps to debug extensions, theme and hardware acceleration issues and even after uninstalling, removing my profile and reinstalling the problem will exist on a freshly untouched Firefox. Oddly if I load it up in Safe Mode, instead of showing a blank screen, the browser will simply take longer to load up, but the moment it opens, it is displayed correctly.

OneTab has not be repopulating with all of my saved websites lately (last 5-6 days). It has eventually come back but today, its not happening. I have a tab that is my OneTab tab that has my saved websites in it. That tab exists still but it is empty. None of my saved websites are there. Also, the OneTab icon has disappeared. There is a space where it used to be and if I click on that space it goes to the description of OneTab so it is still (sort of) there, but... How do I get OneTab to work again. I don't want to lose the list of websites I saved. Thanks.

I have 2 windows of firefox and i close it using bat file. Which terminates process firefox. I used it like that long time and never had problem. However i launched firefox and it said some error and gave me 2 choices: either start in safe mode or refresh. I clicked on refresh and now all my tabs are gone. I checked under history and closed windows - there is nothing... Any way to get my tabs back?

Also how to avoid this issue, if you close window one by one. Than you go to go to library and history and manually restore window, or press some hotkey. Even that is annoying, instead of just using bat file to kill process and than you have both windows open. Because sometimes close window won't safe, if you use hotkey. So i gave up on that...

Hello,

I have a website on Wordpress that uses google fonts (called via css). The fonts have always worked perfectly up until very recently when I noticed they started rendering improperly. I checked other browsers and found that the fonts render fine in Chrome but not in Firefox or the Firefox-based Pale Moon browser.

I've included screen shots from Firefox 80.0.1 (my default) and Chrome. The Firefox screen can be differentiated by the "Edit this post" link.

The most confounding aspect, to me, is that this is a recent development as they used to render in all browsers without issue. Would anyone have any insight into what may be causing this?

With the most recent version of Firefox (80.0.1 64-bit), the free videos at cbs.com no longer play, even with AdBlock turned off. That wasn't the case with earlier versions of the browser. However, everything at abc.com, nbc.com, YouTube, and Netflix play as always. I contacted CBS about this matter but, after a four-week wait, have not had a response. Fortunately, I can watch the free CBS content if I use Google Chrome and/or Microsoft Edge. Because of that, I wonder if the problem lies with Firefox and not CBS. None of the so-called solutions I've read here at Mozilla Support--regarding the playing of videos--has worked.

Hi,

Problem as described in the title. I've read some similar questions and answers, but nothing ever helped.

I already tried the following steps (none of them helped): - Checking for updates - Toggling DRM on/off - Uninstall Firefox completely (delete profiles, too and so on) - Changing some DRM or Plugin related config in about:config like media.peerconnection.video.h264 (and of course reverting it after that) - Looking for XHR requests when toggling DRM on/off or visting a site with DRM content. I couldn't figure out what I'm actually looking for, though... - Switching off Firewall/Antivirus or the TLS filtering (Eset) for a moment - Looking for suspicious requests in some router protocols or dashboards or whatever

Thanks in advance!

Sometimes no scolling in active Firefox window

Hello,

I'm using the Logitech M705 mouse with Logitech Options Driver v.8.20.329 under Windows 10 Home 2004 (19041.450) and I have the problem that, from time to time, in the Firefox (always up to date) window the scroll wheel doesn't work as long as the window is active. If I activate another window and move the mouse only over the Firefox window, I can scroll there. As soon as I click into the Firefox window (and activate it), the scrolling wheel doesn't work anymore. Sometimes just opening and closing Logitech Options solved the problem, sometimes it helped to stop all Logitech tasks, but most of the time I had to restart the computer.

I've tried different versions of Logitech Options as well as of Logitech SetPoint, if they could be installed. But the problem kept occurring. (I'm back tothe last Logitech Options.)

Since the problem doesn't affect any other application, Logitech support says, that it must be a Firefox problem.

I would appreciate help that can permanently disable the problem. Because it is very annoying when it occurs.

I can't intentionally cause the problem. But let me know, if there's a way to provide some kind of log file.

Thanks a lot!

With kind regards Michael.

I'm not very tech-savvy and not a native English speaker, so please bear with me :)

Now to my problem:

Recently my tabs started crashing occaisionaly. The tab crashes seem to only appear when it's a new tab while tabs that were already open remain stable and don't crash. However if a new tab crashes, it disables my extensions automatically for all tabs, i.e. those tabs that were already open and perfectly functioning and any new tab that I open after the crash. When I say "disable", I don't mean that the toggle in the extension settings is moved to "disabled", it's more like the extensions just stop working despite being set to "enabled".

When reloading the tabs the extensions keep not working. Closing the browser and re-opening it solves the problem but only until I run into another crashing new tab.

I've checked about:crashes but there are no crash reports. When the "Gah! Your Tab Just Crashed" screen appears, there's no option to send a report, I can only close the tab or restore it. I also can't seem to find a pattern in the crashes other than them happening when opening a new tab. It doesn't look like the number of open tabs has an influence on the crashes. Not every new tab crashes.

Hi all, Camera/mic work (Logitech HD Pro C920 camera) and are plugged in.

Running Windows 10 on a PC/Ryzen 2500 processor.

I've located all the "Permissions" dialogs I can find.

  1. Permissions for cam/mic  are set to "Use Default" - Facebook error "please allow access (cam + mic)
  2. Permissions for cam/mic are set to "Allow" - same error
  3. Permissions for cam/mic are set to "Ask me every time" - then "Use Default" box is automatically checked.

Firefox is updated (as of today) as is Windows 10.

Does Facebook.com have controls contained within the app under "settings" or something?

Thanks so much for any help.
