When watching Youtube in full screen, mousing over bottom right corner of the screen activates some kind of a miniscule scroll down button. I assume this is an issue with Firefox since it does not occur in other browsers. I want to disable this functionality so when instinctively navigating to the bottom right corner I disable full screen, not scroll down.

When I scoll over text to copy or delete, the text stays transparent, no color to show what's been highlighted--how can I change this so I see a color. In Chrome, it's blue. But I don't care as long as I can see what I highlighted-- it's just about driven me away from Firefox so hoping someone can answer-- thanks

Hi everyone,

I'd like to know if there is any way to delete some shortcuts that firefox executes. I already searched and found a way to disable the only "alt" press once to see a menu but i've never seen a topic about how to disable the alt + space bar shortcut. If anyone can help me and disable it please go ahead.

Thanks in advance.

Company add on slug is already in use

I am reaching out to kindly request your assistance in addressing an issue I've encountered while attempting to acquire a slug for "wakatime". Unfortunately, the system is indicating that the chosen slug is already in use, and I am seeking guidance on how we might proceed.

The slug I had in mind holds significant relevance to my project, aligning perfectly with its identity. If possible, I would greatly appreciate your help in either releasing the current assignment of the slug or providing recommendations for an equally suitable alternative. Your expertise in this matter would be invaluable, and I am committed to working together to find a solution that maintains the essence of my project. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Today I was going to forward spam to reporting places. One must open View raw message. It would not open; Seemed rather proud of the fact that it had blocked a website from opening something.

Brings me to my point: I have never understood the need to open View raw message, go to that new tab, control A, control C, go back to the tab with the email opened, click forward, control V.

I believe that IF ONE CLICKS FORWARD, all of that should be automatically done. Forward SURE IT IS USED FOR MANY OTHER REASONS OUTSIDE OF REPORTING OF SPAM. However SHOULDN'T YOU BE HELPING OUT WITH THE REPORTING OF SPAM?

Felix

Post Script: And why? Just why? Why should View raw message be blocked?

The LastPass icon has disappeared from the menu. I've tried re-installing the extension, and looking in the "customize" list (right click on the menu area), but it isn't there. Please advise how I can get it back. I rely on it. I think this is a result of a Firefox upgrade.

Hi, i'm using firefox since many years and would like to continue doing so. Unfortunately I'm experiencing a big issue with the browser on my new windows pc which other browsers don't have and I would be very grateful if you'd help me solve them

The problem is that Google pages often don't load (for about a minute) Once every hour I have to research on google or other google-related websites such as Youtube, google docs, maps, etc. for work and very often they appear offline. After about a minute of refreshing the page, they work again (note: this is no internet connection issue: the same pages work on other browsers such as chrome and I even switched to another internet provider hoping to solve the problem, without any improvement)

Did somebody solve the same problem or is capable of helping me?

Things i already tried: cancelling cookies, deleting addons, re-installing firefox

My primary email account is my companies email. I no longer work at that company and do not have access to that email account.

When I attempt to change email to my personal, which is listed in the account, it requires that I enter a verification code that is sent to the current primary email.

Is there a work around for this, or should I delete the entire account and start again?

As far as I know there are quite a few keyboard shortcuts one can use in picture-in-picture mode. However, they don't always work for me. Most notably, spacebar often toggles the last thing I clicked in picture-in-picture mode. For example, I enter full screen mode and press spacebar to play the video, but instead it exits the full screen. Or I click on one of the "rewind" buttons, after which spacebar adopts the function of that button until I manually click play. For some reason, the arrow keys also don't always work. I suspect it's the problem of the same origin.

I also feel the need to say that this behavior is not limited to picture-in-picture. This is similar to what happens in almost all video players online and, possibly, some of the offline ones as well. I have also checked a few forums (VLC development thread and Stack Overflow) and it seems to be a common issue across many video players.

Still, if anyone knows any way to deal with this problem in Firefox picture-in-picture as a user, I would greatly appreciate it, as it interferes with multitasking a lot more than on any other players.

I have exported bookmarks in XML en went on a well deserved vacation. At my holiday address I found out that there is no possibility to import the created XML-file.

It doesn't make sense that Firefox only supports the export, not the import!

What to do now?

Hi I am getting this message when trying to view the `preview` of an item that I am listing on the ebay site.....Firefox Can’t Open This Page

`To protect your security, signin.ebay.co.uk will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window.`

I have no idea what this means? but I cannot see the preview on ebay. Everything is up to date and was working a few days ago. Thank you.

Firefox is slowing my computer to a snails pace. Your "help" page said to go to about:config. I don't know where to find about:config. Your software doesn't say where to look for it or a place to look for it. Your help is no help at all. I don't have time to look at forums that in my 25 years of using computers I have never found an answer to a problem I have had in forums.
