Firefox behavior with virtual desktops in Windows 10

Hello dear Firefox experts,

I have been using Firefox for years and of course I would like to continue doing so. :-)

I work with Windows 10 and have learned to appreciate the virtual desktops, which can be set up via the key combination "Windows + Tab". About the desktops can then be distinguished, for example, in "Office" and "Private".

In total, I have actively set up 4 different desktops.

FF I have set up as the "default app" in the Windows settings.

Now it is the case that I have a Firefox window open in the "private desktop", for example.

But when I work in the "office desktop" and click on a URL, the office desktop automatically switches to the private desktop and opens the URL in the FF already opened there in a new tab! :-(

So I have to remember before to open a new Firefox window in the office desktop to display the desired page also on this desktop.

Unfortunately, this doesn't always work.

If I work in the meantime in another of the 4 active desktops and use Firefox there and return to the office desktop and want to open a URL there again, the desktop jumps back to where I last used the already opened FF. This is quite annoying in the long run.

That's why I ran a test today with Google Chrome and MS Edge and defined each of them as the default app for testing.

Stupidly, these two browsers work exactly as I want them to. If I have already opened one of these browsers in another desktop, the URL will still open in the current desktop and any additional URL as another tab will correctly open in the current desktop.

If I now switch to the private desktop and open a URL there, it will correctly open in a new tab in this desktop.

I hope I was able to illustrate my "problem" so far?

Now my question? How can I change the behavior in FF? This seems to be a standard of FF in contrast to both other browser programs. Disabling in the FF settings "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" seems to be only a rudimentary solution;

but then a new window is opened every time, which is also not useful.


Can something be adjusted in the "deeper" settings?

Many thanks in advance for your tips.

Best regards, Georg

Whenever I try and use any google website I get the PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR. Occasionally the pages load up properly but 95% of the time "PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR" will occur. This is getting frustrating as other webpages are loading normally e.g. duckduckgo, amazon. As I use google primarily for browsing and work this is making firefox unusable for me at the moment. I have temporarily switch to Edge which also seems to work fine.

Might there be a way of telling my Firefox to autoclose a specific popup on a specific site? There are half a dozen sites I use regularly that have ones that are useless to me but that use a method not caught by the standard "block pop-up windows" (yes, I have it enabled). It would be such a convenience, in particular when following news links around. And to default to "accept all cookies" on popups would also be very helpful (I enable the Clear history when Firefox closes option to reduce tracking). I've read about uBlock Origin: does it allow me to start my own list and add to it when I'm on a page that has the problem? And, doesn't 'blocking' have to tell the site? autoclosing wouldn't.

Is there any way I can make them look yellow again?

Currently @ Ver. 102.0.1 Problem remains. Since the update to 102.0 my Win10 PC has problems with the page update. When the scroll slider gets near the bottom the page, new images begin to load. This reload results in 3-15+ newly loaded Fb posts scrolling past so fast as to be invisible. I have to keep my cursor on the scroll slider and, when the loading begins, start scrolling up if I want to have any chance to easily find the last post I was reading. I have seen this behavior, grossly exaggerated, when I was viewing a video. The reload caused the viewing to pause and upwards of 15 newly loaded posts scrolled past in this rapid manner. My work requires that I am able to view pages of Facebook posts and this is now massively time-consuming and intolerable. I may have to change browsers in spite of my reluctance to do so.

Every so often, Firefox fails to display a video. In this example, Firefox briefly displays what appears to be the first frame, then displays the message "The Media Could Not Be Played". I've tried with Troubleshoot Mode, and clearing history (cache, cookies, site settings, offline website data). How can I find out what's blocking? The example is a Twitter post on Wed 08/17/2022. I hope it is still there. https://twitter.com/i/status/1551522653705576449

I cannot login to my account (had to open a new one to even post this post..).

I do not have my authenticator app since my phone broke. I do have the "One-time use codes" which I saved. But, alas, how to make them work?

For some reason I was not presented with the "step 2"-code when I reset my authenticator the last time...

I will now be rude: Should I just give up on my Firefox account, and thus Firefox, and go straight back to Chrome (which does not have this problem)?

Hi all,

My Firefox version is 102.0.1.

I upgraded my desktop from Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to 22.04 LTS.

I removed Firefox from snapd and installed as a deb package.

I noticed these events happening on my system:

1. No voices on getVoices():

  https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/SpeechSynthesis/getVoices


2. On my system,

$ spd-say -O OUTPUT MODULES espeak-ng-mbrola espeak-ng

$ spd-say -L NAME LANGUAGE VARIANT

spd-say -L outputs an empty table, even though spd-say "Hello world" works.

The second module espeak-ng has voices installed. Running spd-say -o espeak-ng -L produces a long table.

Iam not sure if this is a Firefox issue or an Ubuntu issue.

I have the option 'Show editor when saving' checked, so I'm getting the bookmark editor popup window when I want to save a bookmark .

However, more often than not, a bookmark is being saved without me clicking the Save button .

My understanding is that it's a feature of sorts, but it's driving me bonkers, and I just can't remember what I need to do to not save a bookmark - hit esc. , click the star button again, use the keyboard shortcut, or whatever it is . Nor do I care to be frank, I really just want Firefox to not save a bookmark without confirmation , which I thought would be the main point of having the optional editor window .

Is there any way to disable autosave for bookmarks completely ? Sorry about the rant, it's just so unintuitive and annoying, and I'm tired of cleaning out my bookmark folders all the time ...
