Hi all,

First time posting so apologies if I mess anything up. My company has created an inbound calling service using twilio under the hood. We utilize webworkers to send cross tab messaging around call actions to the twilio service that manages a particular call. One specific feature that is critical to us is the ability to answer a phone call from any tab that our service is running on.

With one of the recent updates to firefox we noticed that this feature no longer works because the calls to navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia() would not resolve until you clicked on the page where this action was being called. This effectively means that you can only answer the phone call on the page that actually houses the twilio logic for answering the phone call (via a button action).

Is this an intended security improvement? If not, is there anyway to prevent this from happening other than holding on to an open mic stream for the entire time the application is open?

Thank you for reading!

Hi folks, So my university uses gmail and accesses with Duo Mobile. I usually use Firefox on a Win11 PC, no problem. This morning for some reason firefox will not let me even begin the login process. Chrome works fine. I have disabled four extensions (DuckDuckGoprivacy, Unpaywall, YoutubeNonstop, Boomerang) and restarted, no change.

Screenshot shows errormessage on Firefox, with functional Chrome screen in background.

This has to be a firefox issue? help please!

There used to be an extension called "IE Tab". It allowed you to right click on the link, and open the site in a tab, using Internet Explorer, for sites that didn't work properly in Firefox. I was wondering if anybody knows of any similar extension that would do the same for Edge? I can't open Twitter (X) using Firefox anymore, but I can open it using Edge. I don't like Edge (obviously), but I have no choice. Thanks in advance!!!

Hi,

I wish to provide a co worker with access to some websites (and provide the site passwords), this will involve - from what I can see setting up a separate FF profile (that we both sync to - by using a Firefox Account) on my PC, somehow copying the bookmarks and passwords from my general profile into a new 'co worker' profile, the co worker (via sync) would then see the bookmark, and then hopefully also have the password available.

I can see how to export/import all my bookmarks, or have her sync to my 'general' FF account quite easily, but I only want to give her access to work related bookmarks and PWds.

Any thoughts appreciated.

I had posted my question yesterday and received a response from jscher2000. I sent a reply to the response by email a short while ago, but I wasn't sure it went through. Therefore, at the possible expense of having you receive the reply twice, I have recopied it here:

Thank you for trying to help me download Firefox onto my computer. As per your advice, I first tried shutting down and restarting my computer. That did not work. Then I went onto the link you sent me: https://www. mozilla,org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release . The installation began, but only got up to around 80 - 90%. It stopped at the point where it said Execute: "C:|Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\default-browser-agent.exe" register-task 308046B... (It looks like there might be some more letters and/or numbers after the "B", but I can't see what they are.) I waited a few more hours to see if the installation would continue, but it did not. I then went back to try downloading Firefox in the regular way. First I got a message, "Now installing. Firefox will be ready in just a few moments." Again, installation proceeded to around 80 - 90 %, and then I got a message, "Hmmm. For some reason, we could not install Firefox. Choose OK to start over." Starting over didn't help. I got the same message. Any further help or advice that you can give me would be greatly appreciated. drzee1946 email: drzee1946@gmail.com

Hi, I would like to export all my bookmarks once a day. This needs to happen automatically because it will be part of a bigger idea where I will be working with this file etc.

Is there any way to do this? For example: - do it using API directly in the Firefox Sync service? - do it via command line in Windows?

Any other idea?

I've discovered it has something to do with Amazon.

I didn't know I had it until I just migrated to Windows 10 and a new firefox update occurred.

Even then, my only clue is a little orange "triangle" that shows up at the top line of the 'hamburger' menu at the top right on the screen. When I clicked on it, I got a message saying "Silk Privacy Pass wants to update".

I went to my installed extensions/themes screen and there is nothing about a silk extension or add-on.

It also showed up when I looked in the startup configuration and it showed it was loading during startup there. I disabled it. But today I just got the orange triangle again an hour ago wanting me to let it update.

I want it gone!! Especially when it showed up on my system without my asking or knowingly agreeing to it.


FWIW, I also ran Agent Ransack (search utility) on the drives and "Silk" does not come up as a file name for an app, DLL or any other file.

I want to disable the "language-aware word selection when double-clicking on text" feature that shipped in 122.0 (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/122.0/releasenotes/)

This new feature is cool, but it has actually slowed down the speed at which I select text. Originally, I could double-click to select an entire sentence, but now a double-click only selects a single word.

It would be great if there was a way to disable this feature for a specific language.

Thank you.

When I'm viewing a PDF from within Firefox and try to print the page, it shows a smaller version between 1/2-3/4 of the size of the paper. I have "fit to page selected" and this doesn't change it. I try a larger than 100% scale and this doesn't change it either.

However when I download the pdf and pull it up using Acrobat it allows me to print full page, fit to page, scale, etc no problem.

Initially I thought it was my printer, but I removed and reinstalled the drivers for the printer and I don't have this issue with any other program except for printing from Firefox. It's almost like the Firefox browser has too small of a page default set so that it's fitting to a page, but the page is smaller than 8.5x11 printer paper.

How do I fix this?

I don't know if it is a setting because I have looked everywhere to find one that could be causing this. When I visit some websites, SOME of the numbers are removed from the text (see picture). This happens on secure sites I sign into, like bank and credit card accounts, but it also happens on websites where I am not signed into anything, just looking at information. I was reading a research article and all the numbers from the body of the text and the citations were gone - I had no idea what the results were because there were no numbers before the % signs. When I use Chrome, this problem does not exist. I just started using Firefox trying to get away from Chrome and this issue has been present since the first moment. The only extensions I have are Grammarly, CapitalOne Shopping, and RetailMeNot deal finder. I have used these for years with Chrome and no problems. I have cleared cache and cookies. I have logged out and logged back in. Any idea what's causing this and/or how I can stop it? Thanks in advance for your help!
