Hello,

It's been a while since the release date of chromecast on browsers.. Today, year 2020, all the chromium based browsers add chromecast (Edge, brave, chrome, etc..). My favorite browser is firefox, and i am forced to use a chromium based browser to cast to my androidTV's. Sometimes i think to leave this browser and use a chromium based all the time.

I searched and installed chromecast extension to firefox and nothing works to me, and they are not user frindly as chromecast extension on chrome.

Can you tell me if you even think in add a chromecast extension in firefox by default?

Thanks,

Fabio BISPO

I'm using firefox developer edition. The latest version: 76.0b2 I have firefox.cfg set up to overwrite new tab content with locally stored html. The code in firefox.cfg that worked until recent update:

/* set new tab page */ try {

 var newTabURL = "file:///G:/Documents/Newtab.html";
 aboutNewTabService = Cc["@mozilla.org/browser/aboutnewtab-service;1"].getService(Ci.nsIAboutNewTabService);
 aboutNewTabService.newTabURL = newTabURL;

} catch(e){Cu.reportError(e);} // report errors in the Browser Console

In the browser console there is an error message displayed:

[Exception... "Cannot modify properties of a WrappedNative" nsresult: "0x80570034 (NS_ERROR_XPC_CANT_MODIFY_PROP_ON_WN)" location: "JS frame :: firefox.cfg :: <TOP_LEVEL> :: line 7" data: no]

Any idea what that error message means and how to resolve it? Does anything changed regarding new tab overwrite?

I am living in Spain, and browse in English. Often when I do a search with Google, although the result is linking to a page in English, the final page is in the one for the Spanish market (es_Es).

A good example is the Seagate website. Even direct links from other forums are redirected to their Spanish version. Also, after cleaning cache for Seagate sites, restarting, AND trying it in a Private Window.

My config: macOs 10.15.4 set to UK English. Firefox Dev Edition 76.0b3, (language same as OS) with: - Privacy & Security: Enhanced Tracking Protection > Standard - Privacy & Security: Locations > "Block new requests asking to access your location" checked - about:config > geo.enabled set to false. Google Search Region Settings are set to "United States". –

Thank you!

I have some sites that I visit specific pages on. For example, https://www.futilitycloset.com/category/technology/. When I start typing "fu", Firefox suggests first the base domain, futilitycloset.com, even though I never go to the main page. I've tried using shift+delete when the base domain is selected, but it's still there the next time I type "fu". Is this possible?

Several versions ago the bookmarking was a 1 step process (bookmark and dropdown in 1 place).

It has gone back to that once in recent updates.

However, it has been broken again, requiring "Bookmark" then "Edit Bookmark". Is this going to be fixed?

How to reset the PIN that enable me to see a saved password. The guidelines suggested by Firefox are wrong

I Cannot reset a (supposed my) PIN that able me to view a password saved. Firefox asks me for a PIN which I do not know, when I want to reset the PIN it points me to "Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options", but neither in Firefox Options (that I have to assume is referring to with "Settings") nor Firefox Sync account settings there exists such a "Sign-in options". These are the steps I followed to locate "Settings" and "Accounts" and "Sign-in options"

1. I went to Firefox Options and searched for "Accounts" 1. I went to Firefox Sync Settings > Manage Accounts 1. Also I attempted to try with another account but I do not have / I do not remember the password if any, it is not the same of my main account password because it does not work.

But I could not get the given "Sign-in options". How can I reset the PIN or just delete it because I do not remember when I had to create it neither what it is?

I know the email and password of my account, Firefox could send me a PIN reset request to my email, the one I am registered to Ffx Sync.

Thanks in advance. Regards, Jorge

Hi. I cannot access this website https://3f-dialoger.medlemsportalen.dk It redirecting me to this link, and its saying Firefox is not supported. How can that be possible?.. or web developer must hate firefox to make this kind of joke. Do I really need to have Chrome or IE by side to successfully send an request? In other browsers the thing is working very well... Can I get any help in this case? Thanks

How can I roll back to the previous version of Firefox?

It just updated without my knowledge to version 76.0 and it broke Google Maps. I cannot "grab" the maps and moved them in any direction, an extremely very important feature. It's not Google, because I tried the identical maps using Opera, Chrome and Brave and it's working fine on all three of those browsers. Thanks for your help.

I have recently migrated from Chrome to Firefox and imported passwords and bookmarks over. Everything seems to be fine except for icons in Bookmark Bar. For some reason are some of them showing up, but most of them are not. I have tried several things like:

  • delete all and import again
  • delete cache, history, etc.
  • delete favicons.sqlite from profile folder

But none of this helps.

Does anyone have any idea what else can I do?

Thank you.

Example....

I am in main bookmark page. Scroll down to middle of bookmark and select a bookmarked website. Click on website to view. Then click on upper left hand corner arrow and it returns me to the top of the bookmark page, rather than returning to the same location of the bookmark.

Disabled all the plugin, cleared cache, history, etc., and still get the same results. Really frustrating to have to scroll down the bookmark page to get to the website.

Never had this problem until installing v. 75 and 76.

For the last few days I've been having an issue with Youtube videos where the video player will appear way smaller than it's supposed to be. This happens even with all extensions disabled and zoom reset (I attached two screenshots to show the difference, dark mode one is firefox, light mode is chrome). I believe this may be a problem with Firefox in general, since it seems like a similar issue applies to other websites. For example, the Twitter sidebar has gotten big enough to need a scrollbar of its own (normally it doesnt need this).
