Hello,

The gestures defined by browser.gesture.swipe.* do not work on Firefox Linux unless the ALT key is held down. I only discovered it that worked at all with ALT by accident while searching about this issue...

Is there a way to get gestures to work WITHOUT requiring the use of the keyboard (which would seem to defeat the purpose of having touchpad gestures)?

Thanks.

I'm a left handed mouse user. For editing purposes, I don't use my left hand, I use my right hand. And, generally use the right handed keyboard shortcuts as defined by Microsoft a long time ago. I've notice that some of the short cuts have been implemented, while others are not. It is possible to implement them all, as it's annoying when I try to do a copy and paste operation, and have to .. Left Click .. my mouse to execute a copy operation, while pressing [ SHIFT + INSERT ] to do the paste operation. I would prefer to just press [ CTRL + INSERT ] to copy.

PS .. I've also noticed that [CTRL + END] works, while [CTRL+ HOME] does not.

On ubuntu 20.04, the snap version of firefox can't play some videos. Some youtube videos will play but streams won't, and then I get the message "to play video, you need to install the required video codecs". On telegram web and tweetdeck I also get this message while trying to play some video.

Since it's a snap, nothing I do on my system will solve the problem, I cannot install any codecs.

I have set a primary password in Firefox. Sometimes, the password prompt appears out of nowhere. For example, I have Firefox running in the background while I'm using a completely different application, and suddenly, the password prompt appears, asking me for my Firefox primary password.

This is very distracting, so I'm wondering if it's possible to configure Firefox to ask me for my primary password only while I'm using it. I don't care if the prompt appears as soon as I start Firefox, or whenever a new page is opened that requires a password. The only important thing is that the password prompt doesn't distract me while I'm using a different application.

Thanks in advance for any hints.

This website might not support the TLS 1.2 protocol, which is the minimum version supported by Firefox. Enabling TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 might allow this connection to succeed.

TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 will be permanently disabled in a future release.

What can I do to resolve this issue, so I can access my NAS? Thank you for you assistance.

I have 3 systems that I want to use Firefox Sync on.

PC: everything. Laptop 1: everything but addons and settings. Laptop 2: bookmarks only.

I cannot make the sync settings persistent. After every sync all system sync settings reverted to the latest sync system. For example, set sync setting for laptop 2, then after sync started on 3 machines all 3 only sync bookmarks now; set sync for laptop 1, then after sync everything is on Laptop 2. Chrome did this really well so I can isolate some sync features on certain machines.

How can I do this on Firefox?

I'm using Firefox browser 89.0 (64 bit) for Linux mint. I hate this new theme. I'm getting older and sometimes my eyes don't work like before and I have to read the text.

I recently updated to Firefox 89.0. I like the new look and feel, but ever since updating, I no longer see the little red notification emblem on the tab in Firefox when I have unread messages.

I've attached an image showing the tab in Firefox 89.0 (Left side) and the same Discord session in Firefox 88.0.1 (Right side). In Firefox 88.0.1, the notification emblem shows on the tab, but in FF 89.0, it doesn't.

Does anyone know if this is this a bug or some kind of option that I can change in FF 89.0?

Thanks for any help or advice anyone has to offer!

I can't seem to install vsn 89. I have vsn 87.0 currently and Netflix won't run without an upgrade. Also, Amazon Prime requires Widevine, which requires a FF upgrade, so I need to upgrade. The best I have been able to do is download the tar file and run Extract on it. According to the file viewer, the latest version of FF is loaded, but when I run the program, it's still v. 87, not 89. The simplest method given is to open the 'About Mozilla Firefox' window and the downloader will run. But there is no downloader running when I do that. I would really appreciate it if someone would supply instructions that actually work.

BTW: I've looked for them, and I don't find the 'required' library items. But if these are truly required and I don't have them, how has FF been running at all these past months? I concluded that either they are installed but I couldn't find them, or they aren't really required at all. I've also tried Flatpack and it doesn't work either.

Firefox seems to have some threshold to leap to a larger font or a different font rendering scheme when adjusting the (Font) Scaling Factor in Ubuntu Tweaks. Nothing happens in Firefox windows until the Scaling Factor reaches 1.25 (125%) and then it jumps to render larger fonts everywhere. (next jump at 1.4) See the screenshots for the difference. What is this threshold? What is the actual parameter Firefox reacts to? Can I control it manually within Firefox?

This question has a rather convoluted background: I have replaced my 2560x1600 monitor with the 3840x1600 monitor and suddenly all Firefox windows render super ugly. It's not that they just look smaller due to to the smaller PPI but rather their font shape causes my eyes to tear. Previously the sensation was very soft. I do not know what that is but it seems it's not just the size. Could it be Firefox is using some information from the monitor that brings it to a sub-optimal font rendering/hinting/antialiasing behavior?

Increasing (Font) Scaling Factor to 1.25 via "Ubuntu (Gnome) Tweaks" app makes the fonts look acceptable again. Ubuntu Scaling Factor obviously also changes the size of other windows and their fonts. So I would rather keep the Scaling at 100% and just make sure the fonts are rendered in Firefox as before with the old monitor. I.e. I would like to remove this quality regression. The fonts can be controlled via Firefox properties but as expected this either increases all font sizes or doesn't work for proprietary fonts supplied by web pages (min font size). There should be a better solution than tweaking each font individually. The fact that the fonts are suddenly rendered acceptably again after the Scaling Factor reaches 1.25 makes me think that there may be some threshold in Firefox that makes it use different rendering scheme, mechanism or such. After 1.25 nothing happens until Scaling Factor reaches 1.4, then the font increases again. So can I just make Firefox render fonts as when scaling is at 1.25 but with the actual scaling factor at 1.0?

Apart from the overall size/resolution the monitors (old Samsung 305T vs. new Dell u3821dw) have different pixel pitch 0.2505 mm, PPI 101 (old) vs. 0.22908 and PPI 110,87 (new). Can this this be the root cause of the ugly fonts? So is there maybe a different parameter or setting to tell Firefox to render fonts regardless the higher PPI or lower pixel pitch?

I would expect everything to look just a bit smaller due to a smaller pixel pitch, but instead the fonts are rendered completely different and I can't find the setting that would fix that.

Just FYI I have been playing with these settings: Firefox: - Default Zoom 120% - Check Zoom Text Only - Minimal font size - layout.css.devPixelsPerPx 1 - gfx.font_rendering.cleartype_params.force_gdi_classic_max_size 100 Ubuntu: - Scaling Factor - System Fonts

I'm on Ubuntu 18.04 using Firefox 89.0 Ubuntu canonical-1.0 .

Hi all,

I wanted to report this display bug on V89 under Linux/X11 ( was ok in previous release, and is V89 is OK on my Win7 ).

as you can see in attached screenshot, there is a part of the interface ( toolbar ?? ) which is on the top of the viewing area , with possible possible overlay of some displayable elements ( as google ads on the right ).

disabling HW acceleration solved my problem, but is this can be fixed in a future update, I will be more than happy to enable it again.

please let me know if you want more info on my system.
