Just added New Tab Version 1 to Firefox version 72.0.2 with DuckDuckGo as Search Engine and default page.

When I call for a new tab I get the message - "Access to the File Was Denied" and "The file at moz-extension://7b4a03b3-0438-454e-bf65-9629bce7ae58/newtab.html is not readable."

However, if I then click on the Firefox Home Page Icon (little house icon) I get straight to the Home Page with the search function available.

Anyone know why I get this interim error message, or why I don't get transferred straight to the Home Page?

When I use my Microphone from within an iFrame, I don't have the permanent option. In Chrome it is possible though, and even when loading the Page, which containing the iFrame is loaded twice, the Permission granted for my Microphone is saved permanently. In Firefox, this is different. The Permission granted for the content inside the iFrame is only temporarily, and I don't have the option to give it a permanent Permission. If I launch the content of the iFrame as a standalone website, it is giving me the option to permanently allow this Permission though.

Is there any workaround or can you give me any Hint?

I have a web site bobgatto.com. when I enter the domain name just as bobgatto.com ans press enter, the site appears as it should. However, no https:// is attached to the name in the address bar and an icon of a lock with a red slash through it is at the left of the name.

Now I believe there should be an https:// because my web host set my up with a free SSL. I checked the cPanel and the SSL status is active. I even tried to reinstall the SSL certificates and keys, clearing cache memory, but I'm still getting the same results.

Can anyone out there help?

Thanks,

Bob Gatto

Up until now I had been able to reduce the height of FIrefox's tabbar Urlbar / icon bar with the followng CSS code:

/* TABS: height */

root {
--tab-toolbar-navbar-overlap: 0px !important; /*fix for fullscreen mode*/
--tab-min-height: 23px !important;

}

root #tabbrowser-tabs {
--tab-min-height: 23px !important;

}

  1. TabsToolbar {height: var(--tab-min-height) !important;}

/* URL bar: height */

root #urlbar, :root .searchbar-textbox {
   font-size: 9pt !important;
   max-height: 23px !important;
   padding: 0px !important;

}

root #identity-box {
  font-size: 9pt !important;
  max-height: 23px;
  padding: 0px !important;

}

root #nav-bar .toolbarbutton-1 {
  font-size: 9pt;
  max-height: 23px !important;
  padding: 0px !important;

}

root #navigator-toolbox {
  font-size: 9pt !important;
  max-height: 23px !important;
  padding: 0px !important;

}

It no longer works. Why not?

When I type in an address in the search bar Firefox intermittently serves up a blank page and attempts to download the page as a file. This only seems to happen when I omit typing in www. in an address and doesn't seem to happen when the address is in my recent history and Firefox autocompletes it.

My internet connection is fine and this is not happening in other browsers.

I am on firefox 72.0.1, windows 10 ver 1903

Ever since the last update, about once a day when I try to start firefox my curser starts flashing. After a few minutes my explorer.exe restarts and I will have about 50 copies of firefox to close.

So now when it happens I try to open up task manager and kill the firefox.exe process but it doesn't do anything, the only thing to do is wait for explorer to crash and then close all the firefox windows. Next time this happens I will try restarting explorer.exe manually to see if I can stop it before it opens too many windows.

I highly down this is an addon problem, been running the same 2 for years.

When in Miracast wireless display mode and while playing YouTube videos in full screen mode, some of the videos are choppy or jerky. I tried two different adapters from two different companies and the problem still exist. I tried a MS Edge browser and the problem disappears.

The problem has some thing to do with the drop down toolbar on top of the screen. When the tool bar is pinned, the problem does not occur. When the tool bar is unpinned, the problem returns.

Again this only happens when playing YouTube videos in full screen mode and when the tool bar is unpinned.

Any help with this issue is appreciated.
