I am using Firefox on MacOS. When I use reader mode, narrator icon is not shown for traditional Chinese pages.

For example, following are the same wikipedia topic in different languages:

  1. English: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shi_Xie
  2. Japanese: https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E5%A3%AB%E7%87%AE_(%E4%BA%A4%E9%98%AF%E5%A4%AA%E5%AE%88)
  3. Chinese(simplify): https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E5%A3%AB%E7%87%AE_(%E4%B8%89%E5%9B%BD)
  4. Chinese(traditional): https://zh.wikipedia.org/zh-hk/%E5%A3%AB%E7%87%AE_(%E4%B8%89%E5%9B%BD)
  5. Chinese(traditional): https://zh.wikipedia.org/zh-tw/%E5%A3%AB%E7%87%AE_(%E4%B8%89%E5%9B%BD)

When clicking "open link in new tab" Firefox sometimes opens in new window instead

When I open a first Firefox instance from taskbar in Windows 10, if I do a Google search then right click on any of the results, then select "Open Link in New Tab", FF lalways opens that link in a new window, not a new tab as requested. The new window takes up the right hand half of my display which means I have to manually size it larger or maximize it. This behavior continues as long as I use the first FF window to open any links - they never open in a tab of the original window and only create lots of windows - this is very hard to deal with IMHO. Now here's the weird part - If I use one of the new windows, then FF behaves just as it should. Do a Google search and all links can be opened in new tabs in the new window, as requested. I did not notice this strange behavior until about April 10 when I believe I accepted a new update to FF.

Hello,

I upgraded my FireFox to the latest version 88.0 today, and noticed some changes on right click menu. In the old version, the keyboard shortcut key is a to copy a link, but now it was changed to L. That is really inconvenient. As you know, when you right click a link using the mouse, your right hand is still holding the mouse, and not easy to press the letter L on the keyboard.

The old menu option is "Copy Link Locaton", but the new one is "Copy Link".

Is it possible to customize the keyboard shortcut of right click menu, please?

Thank you! Brian

Hello,

I tend to have Firefox running with two multi-account containers - one for work and one for personal accounts. Typically I tend to have a window open with work tabs and a separate window with personal tabs. Often I close this and recall them with ctrl+shift+n. However I sometimes find that popups will get into the stack of closed windows - either things like paypal pop-outs or Visual Studio starting a browser when debugging. Done enough times I loose the window (and all the tabs) that I previously had (as the stack of closed windows only seems to hold 2-3 windows).

Is there any way to mark a window / tab configuration as 'persistent' so that even if I close that window & open others I can restore that particular window / tab configuration? Ideally without having to manually save it somewhere each time - I tend to like to just pick up with personal work where I left off rather than saving a set of default tabs.

Thanks in advance!

My most used feature and the reason I set Firefox as my main browser was (is) the possibility to take screen pictures, even to choose exactly what part of the screen to screenshot.

I've always done this by right clicking the mouse and chosing the relevant option in the menu: but as of two days, the icons are gone, only text is available and it's rather confusing (and time wasting, as I actually have to READ the oprions before finding the right one).

Did I mess up in any way?^ Or was it an update? I would love to get the scissors bak in there, please?!

Thank you, Berit

I develop some applications on MS .NET (Vb.NET & C#). Is it any way to automate process (i.e. browse to page and save pages as...)? I can download pages directly using .NET library but I want to save data using saved passwords and session variables in Firefox browser. Are there .COM or .NET libraries available for Mozilla Developers for personal use?

For some reason, many (but not all) websites I go to in firefox open at the bottom of the page. I think the problem might be related to my mouse/scroll settings, but if so, I can't find a solution.

Is there possibly a registry setting which I can look at?

Thanks!

I am very challenged by the new print dialog box on Firefox. My biggest problem is that I can no longer find a way to simplify the page, an option I used frequently to save paper and ink. Also, printing in draft requires multiple steps and looks like it might not be an option in the future.

Has anyone figured out a way to get around these issues, especially to simplify the page?

The old print dialog worked really well for me; this new one, not so much!
