I use Firefox Enterprise on both Windows and macOS, this alone is the single reason why I gravitate towards Firefox the most, it might be even my main browser, I really don't know which is since I have at least 2 opened at any given time, normally 3 or 4. The best part of it is that I don't have to set it up, it's all done. I use Firefox Sync just in case I use Firefox somewhere else, like a phone or Linux, or to push a page to another device (really, it's pulling the history bc push has never worked) but I can live without it.

When I use Firefox on Linux though, it's a night and day experience, it feels like I have to setup Firefox from scratch even after logging into Firefox Sync, it's only synced selectively mostly cares about useless stuff or stuff that I wouldn't let the browser save, like passwords, partly (but very little) because of privacy but mostly because I use a ton of browsers, I can't micromanage each. I even disable all of this via policy and that's what I'm looking to do, find how to deploy policies on Linux clients. I assume is just a config file like the preference list on Macs, even if it's not automated it should be easy to make available centrally a pull it on demand and drop it in the right place with some script but I have to find how's it done first and what settings will there be supported, none of that available in the documentation of Firefox Enterprise.

Fedora Server 32 now comes with an easy GUI for 389 DS (not FreeIPA for some reason) and a deployment tool for desktops both as Cockpit modules, which is also the GUI used by Red Hat in a lot of their products, OpenShift for instance. I wonder if I could use this to deploy Firefox settings. It even connects to Active Directory out of the box, if it could only process Windows policies... anyway. Is there some obscure documentation, maybe in beta, that goes over any of this?

Thanks.

I am using FF56 and still not prepared to upgrade to post 56. Until recently I would see embedded videos and pictures in some forums, which now appear grey or the post seems to have a big gap to the end. If I click on the grey area, the picture will appear when I click on it.

I have contacted the sites and they blame FF stating, that no new algorithms are in use.

Does anyone know why this may have happened and how I can fix this?

When I print the resulting web page in Chrome, it maintains the scroll position of the inner div. But when I do the same in Firefox, it always scrolls the inner div to the top.

Is this an issue with Firefox? Is there a way for me to maintain the scroll position?

Bonjour, Je ne parle pas anglais, donc cette question sera posée en français. On m'a envoyé un lien facebook par messagerie et je précise que je n'ai pas de compte Facebook. Lorsque je clique sur le lien, Firefox s'ouvre sur la page qui contient la vidéo et qui est un compte public, et quand je clique pour lire la vidéo, c'est un nouvel onglet qui s'ouvre où l'on me demande de me connecter pour voir la vidéo et je précise que c'est un compte public. Lorsque je colle le lien Facebook dans le navigateur Microsoft Edge, j'arrive sur la page qui contient la vidéo et lorsque je clique sur celle-ci, la vidéo démarre sans aucun problème. Pourquoi est-ce que cela ne fonctionne pas avec Firefox ? Ma version de Firefox est la 81.0 (64bits). Merci pour votre aide.

Hello, I have a problem with YouTube from my PC. I was already signed in my account and suddenly today I cant's see anywhere the option "Switch accounts" and "sing out" when I click on my picture up on the right edge. Also, even though I am singed in and I can see my picture on up on the right edge, at the same time I see on the left, the icon to sign in (it is under history) and I don't see my playlists. However if I click on "Library" (above history) on the new page I see my playlists. If I click on the sign in on the left side (under history) it shows me it shows me again to sign in (even though I had signed in before and I could see my picture on the top of the right corner), I click on my icon and I read: 405. That’s an error. The request method GET is inappropriate for the URL /youtubei/v1/guide. That’s all we know.

It seems like I am signed in, but at the same time not signed in. It's very strange and it has never happened to me. Firefox is updated. On my mobile I don't have any problem. I used Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge and I don't have any problem. Everything is OK there. Only with Firefox on PC I have this problem. I cleared the Cache and Cookies and restarted it, but the problem remains. I also turned off all my add-ons and it didn't fix the problem. What to do? Please, I need your help.

I started to download some files from a public web site and noticed, after downloading a few files, that the next few downloads all refused to actually start, showing unknown time left. To clarify, a few downloads would work fine, but then I would attempt the next download and it would cause the download to hang. Worse, I cannot download any files - at all - beyond that until I close my browser and reopen it.

This has happened ive times in ten minutes. Every time, restarting the browser causes the files I attempted to download previously to immediately successfully download without any intervention from myself upon relaunch. I can then download another few files, and then it starts to hang again. I have been forced to move this downloading activity over to Google Chrome while reporting the issue, and so far Chrome does not seem to have any issues.

Any ideas?

Basically any link that I edit in Twitch only works (opens to my desired page) if I open it in a new tab. But if I left click the link, it will not open to my desired page. It will open to the original link.


I'm trying to change the Esports link on the top of the Twitch website to a Stream Manager link.


I created the following code:

waitForKeyElements ("[data-test-selector=top-nav__esports-link]", StreamManagerLink);

function StreamManagerLink (jNode) {jNode.attr("href", "https://dashboard.twitch.tv/u/*****YOURNAMEHERE****/stream-manager");}

And this code as well:

waitForKeyElements ("[data-test-selector=top-nav__esports-link] > div > div.tw-flex-column.tw-hide.tw-sm-flex > div.tw-hide.tw-xl-flex > p, [data-test-selector=top-nav__esports-link] > div > div.tw-flex-column.tw-hide.tw-sm-flex > div.tw-flex.tw-xl-hide > p", RenameEsports);

function RenameEsports (jNode) {jNode.html("Stream Manager");}


For the second part of the code - "RenameEsports" - I had to do both div.tw-hide.tw-xl-flex and div.tw-flex.tw-xl-hide, but it works perfectly and it renames the link. So I am not worried about that.


But for the first part of the code - "StreamMangerLink" - it both works and does not work. It works if I press CTRL while clinking the link. Because then it will open my Stream Manager page in a new tab. Also, works if I right click the link and open in new tab. But if I just left click it, it will open the Esports page in the same tab. I tried inspecting element and then searching entire website for all instances of "Esports" and deleting anything dealing with "Esports". But still, I can't get the Stream Manger page to open up in the same tab. I can only get it to open if I make the link open in a new tab.


Was wondering if someone can play around it and see if they can get it to work.

Due to a failure in another machine, I have had to use an older laptop I had not used for over a year. It had an older version of FF with TabMixPlus and other addons which I had come to rely on an treasure. Now, perhaps because I clicked on the wrong dektop icon, all that has gone. All sessions, all OneTab entries, and of course multi-row tabs, plus all the other TMP features such as a "Protect Tab" (NOT "pin tab") which now seems to be history. The continued refusal of Firefox to implement multi-row tabs is completely baffling. Perhaps they are all adherents of some religion that has a strong view on such decadence - it is almost the only possible explanation. There seems to be a tendency to vastly reduce the number of options present to a user, as if the attitude was a patronising "we know what's best for you - don't worry, all will be ok". Yes, yes, yes, I know that multi-row tabs can be had, for a price, and that price is an afternoon tweaking numerous machines in weird places and wondering is MrOtherGuy's work really is the best (or the worst - who knows?) implementation. No chance of a nice extension or feature to do all this, of course.

The whole thing is very dismaying. Life with FF used to be fun - it is now an endless hassle. Unless, of course, you forsake all and follow their way of doing things and confess that you were wrong all along, and that no sane person would ever want multi-row tabs.

Hello. I've been using Firefox 81.0 with MacOS 15.7. I opened FireFox recently and after a few moments it froze, so I had to force quit. When I tried to open it again, it told me that 'A copy of Firefox is already open. Only one copy of Firefox can be open at a time.' However, I only have one copy open, or anywhere else on my HD. When I click "Okay" to close the prompt, Firefox freezes again and I have to force quit. I tried deleting the application using my existing Profiles folder. Again, it froze. I deleted the app and the Profiles folder, used Safari to download a fresh version of Firefox 81.0, installed it, and it ran for about a minute before freezing. Again, I had to force quit. And again, when I reopen it, the same prompt: 'A copy of Firefox is already open.....' I Firefox froze when I tried to close the prompt. I can't even reinstall a fresh version of FireFox. I don't know what to do. I'd greatly appreciate any help. Thanks.
