Multi-Account Containers have a drop-down control to give access to things like container preferences for a site. With Firefox 83 (basic and developer editions) this drop down is hidden behind the main browser window. You can just make out the top of the control - but the bulk of the control is being placed behind the main browser content.

Using macos 10.14.6 and Firefox 83. Latest edition of Multi-Account Container add-on.

Is there a way fix this?

Installed 83.0 update for my Firefox a few days ago and noticed that fonts in browser looks worse. It bacame jagged (sharp) as if Clear Type was disabled in my system but I checked it and it is turned on. Also I don't see this problem in other browsers, Edge or IE, only in Firefox. Could it be a bug with latest update or what is it?

Hello all Please someone kindly help me:

I need to customize the lovely Firefox for our environment, I'm making a list to do it once and make a backup to mass restore to all PCs, so I need description of these commands to set in "about:config":

1st is there a full description list of config commands inside "about:config"?

2nd, I only have SSDs and don't want FF to cache any file on disk, need to cache them all on memory (have 64GB of 3200 MHz memory, so faster to store on RAM and save SSDs from intensive read/writes, what items shall I set in "about:config"?

3rd I found an article on howtogeek to make the privacy settings safe, setting all items here are safe? devtools.onboarding.telemetry.logged = false toolkit.telemetry.updatePing.enabled = false browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.telemetry = false browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.telemetry = false browser.ping-centre.telemetry = false toolkit.telemetry.bhrPing.enabled = false toolkit.telemetry.enabled = false toolkit.telemetry.firstShutdownPing.enabled = false toolkit.telemetry.hybridContent.enabled = false toolkit.telemetry.newProfilePing.enabled = false toolkit.telemetry.reportingpolicy.firstRun = false toolkit.telemetry.shutdownPingSender.enabled = false toolkit.telemetry.unified = false toolkit.telemetry.updatePing.enabled = false toolkit.telemetry.reportingpolicy.firstRun = false toolkit.telemetry.unified = false toolkit.telemetry.archive.enabled = false devtools.onboarding.telemetry.logged = false toolkit.telemetry.bhrPing.enabled = false datareporting.healthreport.uploadEnabled = false datareporting.policy.dataSubmissionEnabled = false datareporting.sessions.current.clean = true datareporting.healthreport.uploadEnabled = false datareporting.policy.dataSubmissionEnabled = false datareporting.sessions.current.clean = true

As the title says, a couple of days ago I noticed that all progress bars in YouTube thumbnails have disappeared. The "Watched" text is also gone. I tried clean reinstall, removing all add-ons, but it did not help. Just to check, I installed Chrome - everything visible (see image - FF left, Chrome right), which would suggest that something is up with Firefox. I also check the history settings on YouTube, everything is turned on, and I see viewing progress in thumbnails when I'm on the history settings page, but not on "normal" YouTube.

I would appreciate any sort of help or advice. My life doe snot depend on this feature, but I really like it and it helps navigate YouTube more efficiently.

I managed to compile firefox on linux ubuntu but did not generate the executables for windows.

Then I started configuring on windows, but I believe the problem is with the Visual Studio version, I installed the latest version of VS 2019, then I found that it doesn't work, because VS 2019 now requires the "C" compiler version 10, and mozbuild uses version 9.

I ended up discovering in other documentation that I have to use visual studio 2017, but I installed VS 2017 version 15.9.29, however it gives error in the compilation.

I found in other documentation that I must use VS 2017 version 15.8, but this version is not available for download.

Can anyone help me what I have to do to be able to compile it?

Hello,

In Windows 8, after updating to Firefox 83.0 64-bit, when I open any web page, the following error message appears:

X Display driver stopped responding and has recovered Display driver Intel Graphics Accelerator Drivers for Windows 8(R) stopped responding and has successfully recovered.

And then:

X Application has been blocked from accessing Graphics hardware Application Firefox.exe has been blocked from accessing graphics hardware.

In device manager, I updated the driver and it stated the driver is up to date.

Should I revert back to 82.0.3?

I'm having a problem where when i watch youtube videos they don't properly load the video as im watching, it will load a tiny part to just then stop the video and load for ages without really coming anywhere. I got this problem probably a few days ago and it seems to only be when i watch videos via youtube on firefox, i tried with chrome and it works fine. I have tested my network speeds when this has happened and they are normal, looking at any other video site/streaming site it is working all fine. I have tried with some steps i found when looking for a solution. These steps are to turn of hardware acceleration or clear the cache, i have tried turning the hardware acceleration off and so far (only tested it for 5 min) it seems to be working and i have not cleared my cache as i have a fresh install of windows and firefox. I would like to be able to have hardware acceleration on because i use the browser a lot while playing games or working and i use multiple tabs and instances and it would benefit me more with it on. Something i also have seen and checked is updates for drivers, everything is up to date.

Anyone know any fix or if it is a problem for others or anything that could help?

Today my browser has been updated and I've found very annoying new feature: whenever I highlight a word it automatically shows the magnifying glass to search for that word. Why do you assume I want to search every time? Actually most of the time I want to copy the word/phrase. Is there any way to disable this function? I have to click somewhere else every time because the pop up magnifying glass covers the text below.

Hi,

I need to do some big extraction of instagram for my sociology thesis, for this I need to scroll down multiple opened webpages at the same time.

In Firefox I know the auto-scroll feature with the middle of the mouse, but I need something like that that works in the background and stay still while I work in other pages.

how to disable enhanced tracking protection in Firefox on all site. global switch I don't want someone to make me happy, by force. profiling by websites and targeted advertising does not hurt. I remember in 2005, Firefox was a browser for advanced users. today it is assumed that the user is stupid

so you have to impose everything on him and not let him change anything beside colors . 

the leader in treating a user like a fool is google, that's why I came back to Firefox after four years. however, I can see that this is also a little such a policy and the solution is forced upon the user.
