Using FF on Mac and have an Android phone. In Chrome I am able to click on a linked phone number and send it to my phone to make a call instead of opening an app on my Mac like FaceTime. Is there a way to send the phone number to my Android from FF?

I'm bringing a problem, but I'm also bringing a solution. At least the solution that worked for me.

There are at least a couple Mozilla threads on this, but they didn't solve my problem.

If you have no audio in YouTube, or some particular Firefox tab, go up to the specific tab that you're not getting audio in.

As you move the mouse to the Red play button which is YouTube's logo, if my fix is the right fix for your particular lack of sound, you will see it turn to a Muted speaker icon. Left-click that muted speaker so that it unmutes!

To reiterate, evidently Firefox has the ability to mute or not mute a single tab! Also, you may see the word MUTED in the area immediately below and to the right of the Red play button, helping you to know what's going on. The thing is, the Muted speaker icon ONLY appears if you've Mouse'd over it, which I think is suspect programming.

Hello,

Hope you're all well and safe

I download a lot of images on Firefox for different purposes and most time I end up with 20 or so tabs to download from

This got me wondering if there's a way to use the "Save Image As..." context menu (right click) without having to specify the file name and destination directory each time

Can this be configured in Firefox? If not, are you aware of any add-on that provides such a feature?

Using Firefox 93.0 (64-bit) on Windows 10

Thanks in advance,

Regards, John

I cant see the settings in Mozilla. It is a bright white. White color or lights blind my eyes.

Which link or icon does Mozilla have to change every color to a light blue or green or red to help a disabled vision American see the settings options then select the various colors for each part offered.

Until the page / settings is set to some colors I am shut down with this bright white. Thanks

Now, in the old Firefox, you used to be able to select "Email Link" to send a URL to someone by e-mail in your favorite e-mail client. I used to do that routinely, sending links via Thunderbird. I'm now using FF93.0, and all I see is "Share", which, when you point it to "Mail" it dumps you in Chrome. Now, in my FF prefs, I have specified Content Type->mailto->Use Thunderbird, so why it's dumping me in Chrome makes no sense.

How do I use Firefox to share a URL in Thunderbird like I used to be able to do?

Firefox now opens a new window, rather than a new tab when I click on a bookmark or the +, or when I start a new download, regardless of Tabs settings in the Options General page. This is different from original behavior, and I have no idea what happened. How do I change back to Tabs rather than window?

You've sent me an email recommending 'The Forget Button' but where is it? It's all very well saying how good it is. I certainly don't have one where it is in your video so how do I install it? Grrr so frustrating.

Ditto the Relay thing for burn email addresses. The little video goes on about how good it is but where on earth is the facility?

Soo madenning!

Any help gratefully recieved.

I left my PC for a looong time (more than a month). Came back, booted Windows and started FF - and only one window reopened, despite when I closed it there was two. And "recent windows" in "history" - grayed out.

A small remark - I use my FF in weirdly advanced mode, I have many tab groups (through addon), and two windows - one with long-run tabs I need, another with temporary ones, which I lost now. There was some important sites/history. How can I restore it back?

(and what has happened to the forum? Why Mozilla buried it's community in such an awful way so it's sooo hard to find? 0_0)

many times I will have many tabs open in a browser, covering different subjects - cars, science things, sports, movies, etc. Is there a way I can cluster all the related topic tabs together, in an order I tell it? Also, color-coding would be a great visual cue - like red tabs for sports, blue for cars, green for science, etc. Can I order and color the tabs like that either in general setup or any available add-ons?
