How to avoid bookmarklet causing popup warning

I like firefox's popup blocker, but since recently it's not been able to handle my bookmarklet that pops up a window. It causes a popup blocked message *as if the popup had come from the site I was visiting* whereas actually it's come from clicking the button in the toolbar.

e.g. I have a bookmarklet that bookmarks the current page with a Nextcloud service. It uses a popup to do this.

Firefox's popup options are (a) allow all popups - no thanks! (b) allow popups for the site I'm visiting - again, not what I want, or (c) allow this specific popup this time.

It would be great if there were options like:

- allow popups taking me to domain/url x (e.g. I trust my nextcloud site) - allow popups clicked from the bookmarks toolbar - allow popups from a particular bookmarklet

Do any work arounds exist? I'm sure this has only recently been a problem as I've always used the popup blocker.

For those who are annoyed at Firefox on macOS using ⇧⌘P for New Private Window instead of ⇧⌘N, I too, have this issue.

Unfortunately after much trawling around on the interwebs it has led me nowhere except for this sad bug report on Bugzilla.

Does anyone know how else I can use ⇧⌘N for New Private Window?

Firefox Dev file import requesters extremely slow on High Sierra (macOS 1`0.13.6)

Dear Firefox Geeks—

After the last update to FF Dev 85.0b5, when a web site give me the option of uploading a file, the system file navigator invoked by FireFox Dev effectively freezes for 10 to 20 seconds, or more. During that time the file selector window does not respond to navigation clicks. When it finally does, it then does not respond to file selection clicks, and after it does, does not respond to 'choose' button clicks in the lower right corner of the window.

Just thought you might want to know.

Best Regards,

Glen

In my notebook I have dualboot with Windows 10 and Ubuntu 20.04, and in Ubuntu Firefox notifications are integrated with the system, but in Windows 10 the notification is a ugly white rectangle. I tried to search how to change, and one site said I have to go to to Settings>System>Notifications & Actions and scroll down to Receber notificações destes remetentes and turn on Firefox, but Firefox don't appear there, as you can see in the screenshot. I'm Brazilian, so my system is in Portuguese.

I'm running Windows 10 on a Surface Pro like device (it's a Vaio Canvas). I have a bluetooth keyboard that is always connected, but I often just use it as a tablet. I've tried disconnecting the physical keyboard but I still get the same behaviour.

Using touchscreen, I select a text box (or URL bar/search box etc), normally the On-screen Keybard (OSK) comes up and lets me type. Right now, with FF it pops up and then promptly disappears.

This makes FF completely unusable using touchscreen/tablet mode. I have switched to using chrome on this device - I've tested other browsers too and none exhibit this behaviour. Could it be my settings?

I've been having trouble for a couple of months with Firefox. It's on both my desktop and my laptop with both Firefox and Firefox Developer. It seems to happen at random, but instead of being able to see words, all I can see is symbols like these (attached). If I copy/paste it into a word doc or a text file, I can read it just fine. It's only in the browser that I experience these issues.

Has anyone else had these issues? Is there an easy fix that I'm just not seeing?

Thanks for your help in advance!

In the Find box, sometimes the search skips over my word of interest before I fully type in the word.

I would like to search the old fashioned way in the Find box. Let me completely type my search word and hit Enter before the search commences.


Is this possible?


I do not have the "Search as You Type" option turned on, which really does not apply to the Find box.

I use the add-on TabGroups Manager and I like to hibernate tab groups to save memory. When a tab group is hibernated, I can bring it back even after I close Firefox and shutdown my computer. With the new Panorama(Tab Groups), is it also possible to hibernate tab groups so I can open them later?

Is there back-support for FF 4.x? If not, why not?

I'd like to roll back to FF4.x until my add-ons are updated for 5.0, but I can't find 4.0 on the mozilla website (even though I can find 3.6.x). Is there a plan to have 4.0 support, or has it been so completely superseded by 5.0 that it's actually unsafe to use?

As general feedback, I'd like to suggest that the compatibility check for add-ons happen *before* confirming the update: it's just unnecessarily frustrating when something breaks and it's too late to go back.

I have a mac, I was using firefox 3.6.16 which works just fine. I tried updating to version 4, but the appearance was weird and the preferences pane was all kinds of screwed up. I downloaded version 5 today and its pretty much the same as version 4. I have tried using safe mode and it works fine, I disabled all extensions and none of it works.
