Linux dual display restricted window width on opening

Hi, I'm currently running Firefox on Fedora Linux 35 with Gnome 41 on a dual display setup, with a vertical one on the left (1920*1080) and a horizontal one on the right (2560*1440). I always open Firefox windows on the 2560*1440 monitor.

After closing the window, Firefox seems to remember the height of last session but not the width. Or more specifically, the width is always restricted to 1080, which is exactly the width of the secondary display, if the width on closing is greater than that. I checked the xulstore.json file in the configuration folder it always shows "width":"1080", which confirmed my speculation.

Is there a way that makes Firefox's new opening window with exactly the same width as when it was closed ignoring the second display's resolution?

Dear Firefox,

I have relied on your browser for years for business related research and might now be sorry that I ever did.

More specifically, my 300+ tabs are gone and when I tried accessing recently closed windows (in case of user error), they are not there either. To make things even worse, although it would be extremely arduous and time consuming/costly, when I went to check all history, my history now stops in August!!! I cannot even find my one tab extension to check from what point I might need to go back.

Is there anything you can please do to help or is all a lost cause with many hours of work gone and no real way to get them back?

Thank you.

Pretty much as the title says. I'm finding that the URL bar offers up an autocomplete list of sites, search suggestions, et al, before anything has been typed. It's the tiniest thing, but for some reason it feels presumptuous. More like it doesn't need to happen. Is there a way to adjust this behaviour?

I have been a happy Firefox and Thunderbird used for many years, but the constant unnecessary tweaking and fiddling with the GUI has begun to spoil my user experience. Each update seemed to change something that was working fine and didn't need changing... the last straw was making the on-screen font so small that it was nearly impossible to read.

It took me quite a while to find a way to change the font size and appearance back to something usable. That was when I decided to disable automatic updates. Now, every time I open FF or TB I get a nag screen and this is beyond annoying. There does not appear to be any way to stop this happening outside of doing complicated stuff in the registry that I am not prepared to do.

So basically, I am looking for a recommendation on the best alternative browser and mail app that I can use when I delete FF and TB. Chrome seems to work OK for a browser and although I don't like the GUI, Gmail is probably the logical choice as I use Gmail addresses. I don't need apps that work on phones as I work on a PC, so a simple clear GUI is more important to me than all kinds of clever features that I will never use :)

I'm enjoying the feature of the pinned "Amazon Search" on Firefox Home – not just a shortcut to Amazon, but a shortcut with a blue magnifying glass that adds the "search with Amazon" parameter to the main search bar and allows you to search Amazon.com without having to visit the site first. I was wondering if it's possible to add a custom shortcut for other search engines... for example, YouTube?

For reference, I have a custom search keyword established in Settings for YouTube – "@youtube". But I want to know how I can have that keyword pinned to my Home page, just like "@amazon" currently is.

Thanks in advance.

The check box 'Ask to save logins and passwords for web sites' keeps unchecking itself. It used to work fine. Now, it doesn't. And consequently, the sub-item 'Autofill logins and passwords' won't work either.

Every time I open the browser to login to a website that has the login details saved, nothing happens. I have to go into settings every time and re-check the main checkbox (i.e. 'Ask to save...') in order to also activate 'Autofill...'.

This is really frustrating and annoying. Why won't the box stay checked? Hope you can come up with an answer. Many thanks.

Hello there !!!

Today I had serious damage to my Mozilla Firefox. When I started up Firefox I realized that I lost all my opened tabs on all my (three) opened windows, although I had checked the box "Restore previous sessions" in the settings section.

I opened "settings" and I saw this box unchecked !!!!!

The unfortunate event of this failure is that I restarted Firefox and even worse I restarted the PC.

Now I wonder, after all these, if there is a way to restore all my lost TABs that, I believe, there are hidden somewhere...

I want to completely disable the 'restore previous session' option.

I want to start a new session with my preset home pages 100% of the time.

Having Firefox display a page 'unable to restore previous session' with the options of 'display previous' pages and 'start new session' is inconvenient at best. I do not want to see that page, I just want Firefox to automatically start a new session every time I open it.

In the Tools menu settings tab, the 'Restore previous session' checkbox is not checked.

If I'm using "Blue Theme by Valou" and then change the "New Tab Background Color" to a light blue (#b7dff0), the theme changes (when I don't want it to) and the "New Tab Background Color" does indeed change to light blue. Unfortunately, when I re-select "Blue Theme by Valou" by disabling the unwanted theme and enabling "Blue Theme by Valou", the new tab background color reverts to a default slate (nearly black) color -- the light blue background is no longer honored when I open a new tab.

Please let me know if you need more information.

When opening the browser for the first time, my opened (saved) tabs begin to load and then pause as though my entire internet connection is lost. Some will time out, others will just sit there. If I try to go to a new website, I get a connection error that says I have no connection to the internet. This only happens in FF; my other programs are not effected by the drop in connection and the Windows connection manager shows that I'm live the whole time. The connection resumes and all goes back to normal between 20-60 seconds after the initial drop.

This only happens when opening the application for the first time after a reboot but doesn't matter if I just started Windows or wait 5 minutes to open FF. What is going on here? I've been using FF on this computer for 2 years with no issue like this. The issue has remained after a full format/wipe of the Windows 10 and clean slate install of FF.

I am very concerned about a proxy or some kind of man in the middle switch being flipped. It's the same pause in network access that I get when enabling a VPN service. As a note, I do not have a VPN installed at this time.

Any help or advice is welcomed, thank you.

403 ERROR The request could not be satisfied. Request blocked. We can't connect to the server for this app or website at this time. There might be too much traffic or a configuration error. Try again later, or contact the app or website owner. If you provide content to customers through CloudFront, you can find steps to troubleshoot and help prevent this error by reviewing the CloudFront documentation.

Never had this problem in recent past, only after updating Firefox to 93 (64-bit) Linux Ubuntu 20.4. I DON'T USE CLOUDFRONT. So what else may be the issue? Thank you.

Hi, I am using the dark mode in firefox which is god sent boon to persons having glaucoma, with dark mode in firefox and dark reader add on. This was going well and after a recent update, I could not find it working. The dark mode is enabled and dark reader was there, but the browsing pages only shows in white. Has firefox changed anything recently to have this issue? If I miss something would the experts say, how to get back my dark browsing experience in all sites. If I find anything not visible in some sites, I used to go the windows properties and change the contrast theme to windows basic blue theme and then switched back to dark theme. this was helping the glaucoma persons very much. please, say how to solve this problem

I have today commissioned a new HP laptop running Windows 10.

I have downloaded Firefox and done a straightforward installation. I have viewed a couple of web pages but notice that when right clicking there is no longer a screenshot facility in the little menu box that appears. Trying Control + Shift + S does not work either.

I am writing this using Firefox 93.0 for Linux Mint on an old Toshiba Satellite and I have the facility - both right click and keyboard.

Has the facility been discontinued in the later version?

Many thanks in advance
