Is there an option to get the old behavior back? When I'm browsing for reference images and I want to just have an image or video in a window I could just right click and use view image/video. Now it's open in a new tab.

You essentially just added one useless click to the whole thing which is me having to close the tab the image came from.

If you answer with, "You can just use copy image link and paste it in the same tab." You just turned what was right click then left click into right click, left click, move mouse over, click to highlight the address, ctrl+v

When I have to do this to hundreds of images every day, every single little click counts.

So, can I restore the old and better functionally? And really, when you do these changes, give an option to keep the old method or keep both.... Gesh...

Hello,


since the last automatic update of the Widevine Content Decryption Module (updated today, automatically) the plugin keeps crashing when I want to watch "TV" waipu.tv. I have already re-installed firefox etc, it just won't work.

I have submitted several crash reports, this is the latest: bp-7bc4b8a4-e59b-4f7e-a840-7c0720210422

See screenshot of "crashed"-notice below.

What can I do to fix this?

I rarely ask for help and try on my own and frequently help others, but I have a problem that I cannot solve and need your help, please.

I have tried the typical things such as restarting, starting in safe mode, refreshing, reinstalling, uninstall and delete folders and profiles then re-install, uninstall and delete folders and profiles and remove all Mozilla/FF entries in the registry then reinstall. No plugins or addons installed.

I tried disabling my anti-virus software.

I have FF version 87.0 64 bit version and even tried with an older 32 bit version. My OS is Windows 10 version 20H2 OS Build 19042.928. Both are the latest versions at the time of this post.


Regardless of what I try, my problem below persists:

When I start FF it almost starts but hangs. I can see it listed in the Task Manager. There is a little activity with Memory and CPU usage for a few seconds then no more. I cannot End Task if I try. It will hang like this for hours. Eventually I will get the home screen. If I attempt to visit a website right away it hangs (two dots blinking left & right like a school bus in the tab). If I do not try to visit a website but wait for a few more hours it will usually connect and be OK. However, if I open a new tab or Private Window I have the same problem in the new one.

Once it is up and running it appears to be working normally except for the new tabs. I have been hibernating my computer with FF open rather than shut down so that I can use it the next day. However, after a number of hours or on another day it will suddenly hang again for an unknown reason. Then I reboot and start the procedure all over.

I have tried every fix I can think of for FF. The problem may be an issue with Windows, but Microsoft has no bulletins or fixes for this one. I have updated to the latest build/version but nothing has changed. Very frustrating.

Any suggestions beyond the things I have already tried would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I'm working on a project where we run Firefox in a container and I need to insert a cookie into the sqlite cookie DB to ensure it's available when Firefox is started. I have some script that runs before Firefox is started and know that I can create a profile on the command line e.g. `firefox --headless -CreateProfile foo` However this simply creates the profile dir and does not create the sqlite cookie DB or relevant tables. Is there a way to force creation of the cookie DB from the command line? Ideally, I want to create the Firefox profile & sqlite cookie DB at the point I build my docker image. The cookie would be inserted when the container runs, before Firefox is started. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

Before April 21st, 2021 I never had any issues with playing videos on Disney Plus, Netflix, etc. But since Widevine updated I cant play any videos without Widevine crashing. I reload the page (as it suggests) and it still wont work. I refreshed Firefox and that didn't work. I also tried to chat with Widevine but their page said "Widevine is a technology provider and we do not provide support to end users. Please contact your application or service provider for support on your particular issue."

Does anyone know what I can do to solve this problem? I really appreciate your help!

I'm on a Mac and the version Im using is 10.9.5. My firefox browser is 78.10.0esr (64 bit).

Hello,

I tend to have Firefox running with two multi-account containers - one for work and one for personal accounts. Typically I tend to have a window open with work tabs and a separate window with personal tabs. Often I close this and recall them with ctrl+shift+n. However I sometimes find that popups will get into the stack of closed windows - either things like paypal pop-outs or Visual Studio starting a browser when debugging. Done enough times I loose the window (and all the tabs) that I previously had (as the stack of closed windows only seems to hold 2-3 windows).

Is there any way to mark a window / tab configuration as 'persistent' so that even if I close that window & open others I can restore that particular window / tab configuration? Ideally without having to manually save it somewhere each time - I tend to like to just pick up with personal work where I left off rather than saving a set of default tabs.

Thanks in advance!
