My goal is to make the javascript: protocol work again.

I think I need to 'about:config' in order to change what I need to change. But I don't know what the Thing is called -- You see, there's no key to the GUI.

The Thing: Users paste URLs into a text box. What's the name of that text box? I will look in 'about:config' for that name. Maybe I'll find the solution to the following Problem.

The Problem: If I paste this... javascript:Math.floor(10*(70000000000/(3*3600)-(192)*125)/(24/1.001)/1000)/10 ...into the text box, "javascript:" gets stripped so that the text becomes... Math.floor(10*(70000000000/(3*3600)-(192)*125)/(24/1.001)/1000)/10 ...and FFox responds with "Hmm. That address doesn’t look right."

If I manually add "javascript:", I still get the FFox complaint.

How can I get the correct operation of that text box (whatever it's called)? Also, how can I stop the drop-down behavior. I hate it.

Thanks, Mark.

I found something on https://support.mozilla.org/mk/questions/1388341. One of the users said something like "Both these options should be controlled by the "Play DRM-controlled content" tick in Tools / Options menu. Definetely. So, no need to use 'about:config' magic and break warranty)))" What does that mean? I entered about:config, unchecked the "Warn me when I attempt to access these preferences", and checked something in there to allow me make a userChrome.css to be available. I still have 1 year laptop warranty, will that warranty become void if I did all of those things listed? The firefox itself didn't come within the laptop though (not pre-installed). And what warranty was that user talking about?

Good morning. My Firefox version is 117.0 and I am running Windows 11 Home. Currently except for Ublock all my other addon icons are grayed out on my toolbar. My webadvisor, Capital One, just gray. This is a new behavior and I'm not sure what happened. I am also curious why just Ublock is colored in. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

I have screenshots of the error I receive when logged into the website. The support staff from LawofSelfDefense.com says everything on their side says I should be receiving audio and video. I have checked DuckDuckGo privacy settings and they indicate that their product is not blocking anything from the website.

I used MS Edge this morning to stream a live episode and it works! I do not want to access these streams using any MS products/software. Something in Firefox is preventing me from Live video and Chat activity on the site. What can I send you to help me fix this problem?

View bookmarks with one click (i.e. from a top level interface control)

I would like to be able to view my bookmarks (not the toolbar) with one click and then open a bookmark with the second click. Is this possible?

The interface has top level controls for a promotional "feature" called "Pocket"; the extensions menu of all things; "toggle reader view" (which inexplicably opens some kind of FAQ page and which has forced me to retype this question by opening something else in the window instead of merely changing the display of the current window), and "list all tabs"—basically a bunch of features that I imagine very very very few people ever use. But no button for bookmarks? What am I missing?

When I start FF I get a Windows popup requiring an admin username and pw to run Firefox Updater. I'm in a corporate environment and users don't have admin rights (which is standard for any company doing reasonable security). I checked the properties on firefox.exe and updater.exe and neither requires admin or is set to run in compatibility mode. Chrome and Edge update without an admin requirement.

Watching videos on Twitter/X doesn't seem to work too well on Firefox. I don't have an account, but I sometimes have to watch a clip on the site. The problem is that you cannot skip the video i.e. you cannot move the dot that shows where you are on the video; you have to watch it from the start, till the end. You cannot also change the volume, apart from clicking on the "mute", so technically here you have the options of full sound and no sound. Twitter has always worked perfectly on the Microsoft Edge that came with the Windows on this desktop PC (bought in fall 2020).

This is a recurring problem. I have just been on to Vodafone who have tweaked my router as my speeds, download and upload, were very erratic, and upload speed often zero so connections failed. Sometimes my phone speeds were similar but not always. The Speedtest by Oopla desktop app also showed erratic results but often when they were OK the web-based test on Firefox was much worse, with upload speed zero. When I started this Firefox showed upload speed zero. Now Firefox shows upload 18Mbps. This variability keeps happening and is driving me spare, as even emails often fail to go through - I use Thunderbird. I shall see how things go tomorrow and tell you how it is going.

When logged in to the Shopify Website (admin page) using Firefox browser, attempt to click any link on the page automatically makes the page disappear and re-loops to my Login Page. I've worked with Shopify's Tech team and their investigation suggested...1st-remove cookies and cache on Firefox (did not work), 2nd-they tested their site and came back with no problems, everything works, 3rd-Try using Google Chrome browser to see if I would experience same problem of re-looping to my Login Page, everything works...no-re-looping to my Login Page and every link on the page works. On Shopify's Tech team recommendation as well as my desire to remain with Firefox browser, I need to get this problem of "page disappearing/re-looping to Login Page" on Shopify website fixed. I don't know how to do this. Login - 0b799d.myshopify.com I have reviewed some of the voluminus content on Mozilla Firefox's site and am totally confused with all the jargon/technical nomenclature. I need help! Thank you, Ken H kehi9780@gmail.com 9/23/23

Currently on macOS Firefox 117.0.1 and in the last week I noticed I can't authenticate with my Yubikey anymore. The browser will prompt for the key ("touch your security key", etc.). While the prompt will go away after I activate my key, the browser window won't advance past the authentication page. Short story-- I haven't been able to use my Yubikey for any site recently.

I have used Firefox on a 27" MAC for many many years. In fact I have used Firefox on many macs since Firefox was first offered. As of the last update or browser upgrade offered by Mozilla for Firefox for Apple desktops, most all streaming video service no longer work. YouTube, Amazon Prime, and Netflix all stall after a minute or less of selecting a video from the above vendors. I get the little spinning arrow, and then a screen message that states that my ISP is not providing me with enough bandwidth to stream video. Absolute nonsense. Using Safari I have absolutely no issues, problems, stalls, buffering, error messages etc., and the experience is what I used to get from Firefox. I have lots of bandwidth available, and have had a professional network engineering service provider check my internet connection. Even if I make sure no other tabs, applications or other iterations are running, ONLY Firefox, it stalls and will not play video. Then I get another screen message that states that "maybe if you restart your device you may be able to play video". While I realize that Firefox is free, I still think I should have a reasonable expectation that it will continue to provide buffer, stall, and hang free performance when I want to watch YouTube, Amazon Prime and or Netflix.
