Hi,

I recently developed a Firefox browser extension using Manifest V3, it's to show coupons & offers on 1000s of online shopping website.

To function properly, the extension needs to have permission for 'Access your data for all websites' ( <all_urls> permission)

During installation, permission prompt does show up, but it doesn't ask permission for 'Access your data for all websites' but ask for other permission.

I have specified this permission in the permissions key in my manifest file. However, when I try to install the extension, It asks for other permission, but not <all_urls> permission: Screenshot at https://i.imgur.com/UiG5Dve.png

After installation, it start working properly only if user has manually granted permission from extension settings https://i.imgur.com/4QWOLOC.png Most users would not know this and may uninstall the extension if permission is not granted prior.

Please suggest the fix.

Here is how my Manifest V3 permission code look like https://i.imgur.com/JmMM3l2.png

I am using Firefox latest version and I have checked with/without any other extensions or add-ons that may be impacting the installation process.

I would greatly appreciate any help or guidance in resolving this issue. I believe the permission prompt is crucial for my extension to function properly and I would like to get it working as soon as possible.

Thank you for your time and assistance.

Best regards,

Krishna

Reference #18.62052017.1660274157.1f6107dd Other sites like my banking site I can access freely on Edge but cannot on Firefox. No error message in that case, just says error try again. All this started after I loaded Norton. I have had them look at the system, and they have, but also point out that it is not them as I can access the site from Edge. I have looked at the help page and their are thousands of people with the same query but no fixes! As a long term supporter of Firefox I am disappointed that I now have to use Edge to do most of my business. HELP

Do containers not sync? I don't see any explicit option to include them in the sync settings. I have "add-ons" and "settings" checked. One computer has the correct containers and the rest have the default set (personal, shopping, etc.). Sync is otherwise working correctly.

In response to early replies I realized I left out some detail in my question.

- I have sync enabled in the extension settings. - This is a continuous problem (the containers from one browser have never synced with the others, over many months) so I don't think it's just a time delay issue.

Thanks for your responses.

Firefox version 109.0 (64 bit) I have 2 Laptops, A and B. Laptop A: about 2 years ago Adobe and Flash quit the business, Firefox was doing ok then after an Firefox update videos would not play, I have to use chrome to this day, Had Windows 8 then updated to 10, no difference Laptop B: Everything was good until a couple of weeks ago January ? 10-20?? 2023. Just after an Firefox update my Facebook would not fully load, I can only see a couple of post followed by 3 post that only show a outlined box with an error occurred and if I click on it or anywhere else it kinda of locks up and does nothing. I can use Facebook on my cell phone (no Firefox) and on Laptop A (chrome) so nothing wrong with Facebook. I tried turning on-off, all that stuff. Tried using MS Edge still would not load fully. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled, no help. I updated Windows 10 to 11, I can Run Facebook thru MS Edge but still cant thru Firefox. Just seems like Firefox doesn't like videos. Has my time expired with Mozilla Firefox?

Hi folks,

Since the last 109.0 update I've noticed a strange behavior with Firefox.

Sometimes after watching a video stream in full screen, my toolbar changes and moves all my customized icons / extensions etc. into this "more tools" drop down menu. I can reproduce this by repeatedly switching from full screen to the normal view

This is so annoying and frustrating.

Does anyone know how I can fix this?

I have been using Firefox for many years. Suddenly I cannot get any sound from videos in Facebook, YouTube or anywhere. The settings in Privacy --> Permissions --> Autoplay are set to "Allow Audio and Video". There is nothing wrong with the computer as I can play videos and sound files on it with no problem. Sound is no problem on Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge. It is just Firefox that after years of use the sound as stopped working. Can anybody help?

WTF are you seriously not aware of this problem? You don't care that people have to use other browsers to watch videos on Netflix and Amazon prime? This is going on 3 weeks now! I've tried all the tips and fixes I have the Yellow bar that says Fire fox is downloading components nothing works for me. I'm Frustrated and quite frankly angry I chose to use and become so comfortable with Firefox. Just make a fix for it jeez! You have 1 week fix it or I swear by all that's holy I will uninstall and never use Firefox again. What good is a Browser you can't watch videos on!

Greetings!

If this is actually a thing, I would like to know how to make it happen. If it is not a thing, this a suggestion that would be amazing to implement into the web-browser!

On my phone, when you scroll, it automatically hides the address bar and everything on it, to go 'full-screen'. I want this on my laptop. How can I make it, that when I scroll, or even just sit on a webpage for a moment, the URL bar will smoothly transition into being 'hidden'?

I want to be clear: I do NOT want to use the fullscreen, CTRL + F11 function, because then my Windows task bar is not accessible. Right now I have my taskbar hidden, which is fantastic because it gives my laptop screen a bigger feel. And if FireFox's URL could do the same... that would be beautiful.
