The Firefox "New tab" page shows quick-navigation buttons. At the top right of each button, the 3-dot menu has an Edit option. On the edit dialog is a link "Use a custom image", which then prompts you for a image URL.

I've tried pointing this to images in my Google Photos (a 1024x1024 .JPG), using an open-shareable link, but it doesn't work.

a) What format does the icon image have to be in? b) Are there any limitations on the URL? c) Is there a way to use a locally stored icon image?

Any guidance would be most welcome! Thanks :)

Hi,

I have an issue that about:config > browser.link.open_newwindow keeps setting itself to '2', so I have to repeatedly go in and reset it to '3'.

Not entirely sure what could've caused this, all I've been able to find is this here support article with another bloke having the samme issue, but what seemed to be only once.

I haven't done much in way of troubleshooting, as I'm not really sure how to go about doing that for a browser.

If I had to guess, it would be either something updating, or an extension yanking my chain, so here's the list of every extension I have installed:

1Password - Password Manager Allkeyshop - Compare Game Prices Bitwarden - Free Password Manager Buster: Captcha Solver for Humans Dark Reader Disable YouTube Cards Duplicate Tab Shortcut Fast Copy Links Honey NordVPN - A VPN Proxy Extension for Firefox Return YouTube Dislike Tab Reloader (page auto refresh) uBlock Origin

Firefox crashes when I click on a box in MS Excel (and possibly other MS programs) then move to the browser to paste or not paste. This has been a problem for months now and I've reported this months ago (Oct. 3rd). Does anyone have a fix to this? I've refreshed it and it has been updated (and windows is always up to date too).

Thanks!

Within the last week or so, a certain website (libsyn.com) that serves Podcast audio has been doing something strange to their content that causes Firefox difficulty when playing back in-browser. If I try to jog/skip through the audio, certain portions will cause the time to continue advancing, but Firefox will not play any audio back. Here's a sample. Note that if you allow the full URL to be loaded, then load the stream into VLC, VLC is able to play the audio just fine without any issues.

Hello,

I have a problem retrieving my favorites/bookmarks. I changed computers (all of them, even the hard drives).

I would like to recover my favorites/bookmarks but cannot do so because I am asked to look for them in folders that I no longer have, because they are on the old computer.

Does Firefox not save any information about my favorites/bookmarks? Have I lost them all? Do I have to redo my whole life?

I am about to stop using Firefox, because recently, every time it wants to update, it goes right ahead without my say so, and completely voids my entire history. Everything is gone. I have to find all my tabs again, and sign into them all again. Dreadful. I was a faithful user of this web platform, bit this is so inconveniently useless, I cannot continue.

Hello, I always use Firefox logged into my Mozilla account.

Yesterday I went to a (legitimate) site, that I had never visited before and only read one page. I didn't click on anything on that site/page, I only read that one page and left the site. Not long afterwards, I received a promotional email from that site stating "Thanks for stopping by!".

My question is: how did they know my email (the email used by my Mozilla account)? I have never received emails from that site, and as I said, I never visited it until then.

Does Firefox expose the Mozilla account email when visiting sites? This is pretty troubling. I would appreciate any input you have. Thanks
