This problem might be unique to Mac OS, and may not even be a Firefox issue at all, but I had to try and see if there was an answer in here somewhere. I frequently use the "copy-image" command from the right-click contextual menu from within Firefox. When I paste that image into a text message for example, it's converted to a TIFF, regardless of the actual format it's in on the website I found it. Unfortunately, Android phones won't accept a text with a TIFF image, causing a delivery failure. There's more reasons why this is annoying, but that's the main one. Is there any way to make sure that copy command retains the original format of the image when copied to the clipboard? Thanks.

Why does a New Folder in Bookmarks create a subfolder instead of top-level folder?

I cannot seem to control where a new bookmark folder goes. Each time I do this, it creates a subfolder inside another folder. I have to remember which folder it went into, then go into Show All Bookmarks and manually drag my new folder out so it's in the main Bookmarks Menu list.

It's only a slight inconvenience but annoying nonetheless. Even if I make sure that "Bookmarks Menu" is selected, it will still put my new folder inside another folder.

Is there a way to prevent this?

When I record screencasts, I don't want people to see what extensions I'm using. For one, it's distracting, for second, it's a privacy issue.

In chrome (iron, opera...) I can quickly drag and resize the extensions area so nothing is seen. Fast an easy.

Is there a way to do this in Firefox. I am open to extensions or keyboard shortcuts as well!

(Pinning to overflow menu is not a solution. It takes many clicks and a long time.)

Thank you for any help.

I recently bought a new mac mini. it is running os 11.12.1 and is the new mac M1 chip. I downloaded the latest version of firefox, 85.0.2 It seems to work great..... but after a few days i have noticed that when i first wake up the computer in the morning AND after i wake it up after it's gone to sleep during the day the browser doesn't work correctly. Trackpad won't scroll. Typing won't type. Clicking on a tab dosen't open the tab..... UNTIL i click on another window of the browser, then when i go back to the first window it has opened the tab i clicked on. Very odd. If i quit firefox and open it again it works. But this is not ideal.

Anyone else experiencing this? Anyone have a solution??

Thanks, Miranda

Change default language for specific websites in Firefox

Hello,

Sorry if there is already a solution to my problem but I've searched for hours without success.

I live in France and I purposely set my system language to English to have everything in English but for some specifics french websites I want them to be displayed in french by default. (not all of thoses websites offers to remember the default language nor have a language switcher)

I tried all the extensions suggested on superuser.com but none of them work (anymore, I guess).

By memory I tried the following Mozilla Firefox extensions with no success :

   Language Switcher
   Language Switch
   Quick Accept-Language Switcher

Also, the point is to "remember" the websites and default language because currently I always have to edit the URL to replace "en" by "fr" and then reload the page.

   OS version : macOS Big Sur 11.2.1
   Firefox version : 86.0

The other workaround I have is to use another browser with the French language set as default but I'm really looking for a solution allowing me to use only one browser for personal web browsing.

Thanks and have a nice day

After moving to Firefox 78 ESR, get/setCookieString() is no longer working. For example:

       if (cookieService != null) {
           cookieService.setCookieString(cookieUri, null, "CertCheckDone=1;", null);
           myTrace("cookie is " + cookieService.getCookieString(cookieUri, null));
       }
   }

Firefox is running in kiosk mode and this code was executed with a hook in browser.js. Can someone please help me with this? Are there APIs I can use in place of these or are the Webextension APIs the only way to set a cookie now? I have tried playing around and can load a temporary extension but it's removed when restarting the browser and this also has to run in kiosk mode.

Hi!

I have two Firefox windows open. One is of my 'Personal' profile and the other is of my 'Work' profile. (Both set in 'about:profiles'). I would like to switch between the two using hotkeys.

While I'm able to switch between Firefox windows of the same profile using the default "Cmd + ` ", it's not working between windows of different profiles. "Alt + tab" works of course but that's slow if I haven't activated one of my profiles (window) for a while.

If there isn't a native solution, I'd also be interested in hearing about Lua + "Karabiner-elements" workarounds if you are familiar with them.

Thanks!

Firefox 86 for Windows gets a beautiful new Print dialog, with great Print Preview and other functionality. The Mac? Nope!

And there is no technical reason for this! Chrome/Vivaldi/Brave all have a similar dialog box that makes it easy not to waste paper when a website insists on printing a second page for a single word.

Come on, Mozilla! A little feature parity would be nice – especially for such basic functionality!

I welcomed the Picture-in-Picture feature to the Mac, which allowed me to watch YouTube videos while performing other tasks.

Recently when I have clicked on the Picture-in-Picture icon, the view does the exact opposite of what I want to occur. I want a small window that I can move around and resize. Instead, the video goes Full Screen.

I've tried right-clicking on the icon and on the video, double-right-clicking, looking through Firefox settings, updating to the latest version, etc. -- but stiill don't know how to recover the Picture-in-Picture feature. How do I get that back? Thank you.
