In previous versions of Firefox, I could view a web page with various links, and I could select a link to open in a new tab. Once I was finished in the new tab, I could close the new tab, and return to the original web page, and find the previously selected link because it still had a rectangle outline around it.

In the latest versions of Firefox, this rectangle no longer appears, so it's impossible to know where I was on the original web page.

Is there a way to get this feature back?

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?

I am unable to open My office email page, as well as www.brightmls.com on my web browser. I have tired deleting the application and re-downloading it, I have tried clearing out the history and cache, nothing seems to work. I would hate not to have Firefox as my main browser as these 2 websites are the important ones for me and I use them most often.

Advice?

It's impossible to edit a URL in the new and terrible address bar. This is a problem, and just one tiny example among many, when a website shows a non English page because I am in some other country. I used to be able to change .../de/etc. to /en-us/etc. and get the correct page. Now I have to click dots, select to copy, paste into notepad, make the change and paste-and-go.

Can this completely idiotic behavior be changed? Who is this aimed at, anyway? Address bars have worked the same for decades at this point - and whilest enhancing it is fine, disabling something as basic to ALL Windows or Mac as editing is insane.

the Adobe Acrobat extension stopped working. So I uninstalled it thinking I could find it on the list of add-ons and then reinstall it. However, apparently that's not the way this works. So I tried installing an upgraded version of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, but the extension was not reinstalled in the process. I talked to the Adobe Acrobat help folks and they said that I have to uninstall and reinstall Firefox. I'm very worried about this because I have so many specific settings set up in Firefox and I don't want to lose any of those. Is there another workaround?

I keep getting a Microsoft Edge download banner when I visit websites using Firefox as my browser. I have selected Firefox as my default browser in the Default Apps settings. I have installed an ad blocker, and turned off every notification switch I can find in Windows settings. I have taken ownership and changed permissions on every Microsoft Edge folder and file on my laptop. Then I deleted them all. I edited the registry to prevent Microsoft Edge from being downloaded or running at start up. I installed Winaero Tweaker and selected the "stop all ads in Windows 10." I still get the banner. Is there any way to turn this off?

I'm streaming video a lot in the PiP breakout window while reading other web pages. I think it's a great feature and I've seen some improvements in the UI over time. I was hoping this problem would have been fixed in the latest update or noticed by someone either in development or another user at some time, but I could find no reference to it when searching the help pages.

When the video is playing in the window, everything works fine. Except when I'm watching something like a live broadcast that has breaks in it for commercials. My practice is to keep an eye on the video playing when I've muted the tab, while I continue my reading in other tabs. When the program comes back on in the PiP, I unmute (demute??) the tab and usually return the picture to the host tab, then go full screen.

At least half the time I do that, the navigation bar - where you can stop/start the play, go forward/back 10 seconds, and where you see the red "LIVE" notification or how many minutes/seconds you are behind the LIVE stream - shows that my program is now minutes behind the LIVE point. The funny thing is, it doesn't do it consistently and I have tried several things to figure out if it's something I'm doing. But there is no rhyme or reason why it's happening. It did this when I had Windows 8, and continued after I installed Windows 10.

For a three or four minute break, I will lose perhaps two or three minutes. I suppose that if I left it in the PiP configuration and just let the program play for the two or three hours it would take for the duration, the time would slip maybe as much as forty five minutes to an hour. Typing this statement now is going to push me to try it next time for an observable result. Again, though, it doesn't happen every time.

My guess is that, for some reason, video frames are being dropped when it's in PiP mode and instead of 30 fps it's only delivering 15 fps. (If 30 fps is what's normal.) I do not have this slippage when I maintain the picture in the standard size video box or when it's full screen. So yeah, as I'm thinking more about it, a distinct possibility is that the frames per second is reduced for the PiP, because it is not able to keep up with the higher frame rate. But then the question is why doesn't it do it 100% of the time.

So thank you all for thinking about it, and multiple thanks to the ones who can help this one be marked "solved". Later -

Every time a website with audio plays in Firefox version 81.0 (64-bit), a pop-up window (similar to the one in the attached screenshot) appears in the upper left corner of the screen. This never happened in previous versions of Firefox. I haven't found a way to disable it, if that's even possible--which I hope it is. The pop-up is not a major inconvenience, just an annoyance, because it disappears after 3-5 seconds or so. Nonetheless, I'd like to be rid of it altogether.

I am a Linux user. So I have a folder called .moziila. Firefox use this folder to save settings and so on. If you are a Windows user you also have this folder C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla.

So I have a folder (Linux) /home/name/.mozilla/firefox/rt7gtt8p.default/ (I will call it System Folder later)

If I would be a Windows user I would have this folder here: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default (I will call it System Folder later)

But I want to have a folder called "sessionstore-backups" in System Folder. I had it and I want enable it folder again.

How can I enable "sessionstore-backups" in System Folder? My goal is to have a file called recovery.jsonlz4. Without this folder Firefox will not create recovery.jsonlz4 for me. So I don't have a folder "sessionstore-backups" and I don't have a file called "recovery.jsonlz4" but I want to have it, but how? Maybe I need to add something to about:config?

Hello,

It's been a while since the release date of chromecast on browsers.. Today, year 2020, all the chromium based browsers add chromecast (Edge, brave, chrome, etc..). My favorite browser is firefox, and i am forced to use a chromium based browser to cast to my androidTV's. Sometimes i think to leave this browser and use a chromium based all the time.

I searched and installed chromecast extension to firefox and nothing works to me, and they are not user frindly as chromecast extension on chrome.

Can you tell me if you even think in add a chromecast extension in firefox by default?

Thanks,
