It seems that my preferred width of the browser window on desktop is so narrow that some websites (not all!) seem to think I'm on a mobile device. And so they serve me the "mobile-friendly" version of the website instead of the standard desktop version. I can tell it's a "responsive design" thing because if I widen my browser window, the desktop-friendly version automatically appears.

Is there a way to disable this so that all websites are forced to always serve the desktop version of the website?

I have forgot my password to my account and also lost the 2FA codes. Since I have no longer access my account, I want Firefox to delete my account. I used a backup email on that account. I tried to open a new Firefox account with that backup account, but I wasn't allowed to create a new account with that backup email address.

I can provide you my national ID,passport and other ID cards to prove that I am the real owner of the account.

You can even video call me if you want but please delete my account so that I can open a new account with those emails.

I clicked on a video in YouTube that I didn't want to have in my history. After navigating to the History sidebar, I right clicked it and clicked on "Forget About This Site". This was a mistake, apparently I needed to click on "Delete Page" instead, now my long rich history with YouTube is gone, but that's beside the point.

Now even after accessing the site numerous times, the address bar refuses to autofill after I press a 'y', and it doesn't come up on the Top Sites in the homepage, like it was blacklisted somehow. The autofill works with other sites. I have no other website starting with 'y' which makes it search for 'y' in the search engine when I press enter. 'browser.urlbar.autoFill' is set to 'true'.

Hey guys,

Just switched over to Mac, trying to work out how to set it so that when you click 'Open File' rather than 'Save File' it only downloads a temporary file and opens it for you (like it does in Windows and like it's meant to do as the support pages have said) however on my laptop it now saves properly to the Downloads folder and stays there after I close the file rather than deleting it - does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks in advance!

When posting or reblogging on Tumblr, I receive the following error message: "Error loading forms / Hmm. This doesn't seem to be working. Please try again?"

It's working normally on Safari on the same machine, so it seems to just be Firefox. I've tried disabling various plugins, but I can't tell what's up.

The "Inbox" page also has some of its functionality hidden. (The top right navigation has disappeared, and the buttons to answer "asks" have disappeared.)

Thanks so much, friends!

I'd like to be able to set a background image in Firefox in new tabs and on the blank home page but for some reason I'm unable to do so...

I tried following the instructions on this page:

https://superuser.com/questions/1495946/how-do-i-change-the-background-image-of-home-page-in-firefox

but my new tabs and homepage still come up as blank white. Is there a way to tell if Firefox is even looking at the css file?

I'm using Windows 7 and Firefox 84.0.2 (64 bit)

Thank you in advance!

After using Facebook Watch on Windows 10 for a while, Process Explorer will show one Firefox Process with a huge amount of memory, which takes up to two minutes of high processor usage to be released once the tab is closed. This slows work with the other Firefox tabs. Firefox Task Manager "forgets" about it as soon as the tab is closed. This does not happen on Android.

This problem has been around for a long time. Just thought I'd see if anyone has any ideas other than not watch FB videos.

I have 2 separate firefox accounts, one is my personal profile and the other one is for school. I recently made the switch from brave to firefox and I had the same thing but the profiles were pinned to the taskbar for easier access. I cant do this for firefox because i pin one shortcut and I right click the other shortcut but its connected to each other so it shows unpin from taskbar.
