The library that seems to contain some of the info I am trying to download wants to install their add-on to Firefox. I don't dare do so without data about it being safe & non-malignant first! Anyone have experience with this?

Thanks

I have installed some extensions. Is there any way to disable / enable the extensions by single click without visiting Menu>Add-ons>disable?

Because some sites do not load properly due to some of the installed extensions. So, I have to disable whenever visiting the site and enable it again after closing the site.

Hi,

Problem as described in the title. I've read some similar questions and answers, but nothing ever helped.

I already tried the following steps (none of them helped): - Checking for updates - Toggling DRM on/off - Uninstall Firefox completely (delete profiles, too and so on) - Changing some DRM or Plugin related config in about:config like media.peerconnection.video.h264 (and of course reverting it after that) - Looking for XHR requests when toggling DRM on/off or visting a site with DRM content. I couldn't figure out what I'm actually looking for, though... - Switching off Firewall/Antivirus or the TLS filtering (Eset) for a moment - Looking for suspicious requests in some router protocols or dashboards or whatever

Thanks in advance!

None of these discuss whether users should address lesser-known problems with Youtube recommendations, such as when they recommend seizure triggers which lack seizure warnings.

Logi Options custom settings for Mx Master don't work in Firefox

I use a Logitech MX Master mouse as my primary pointing device on my laptop (2015 MacBook Air). I use Logitech's options software (Logi Options) to set custom bindings for the buttons on the mouse. I have what would typically be considered the forward/back page keys to adjust volume up and down, a scroll wheel click is still just Mouse 3, and the gesture button on the side of the mouse is set to zoom in/out with the scroll wheel while it is depressed.

Firefox is the only browser that doesn't support the inputs from my mouse. How do I correct this?

Thanks!

I am on Firefox Dev edition 81. When navigating a plain HTML form with the keyboard, the spacebar does not check radio or checkbox inputs.

This is the page I'm using for testing: http://fyvr.net/a11y/spacebar-action.html

When I test the same page in Firefox 80, the spacebar behaves as expected.

Appreciate any help!

Please note that my question is not about preserving preferences. I've searched and found many Q&A threads on preference preservation, but I don't think that is my problem or issue.

What I'd like to do is to make some Ubuntu desktop menu shortcuts to launch specific web-based apps, in individual windows (I suppose separate instances and new-window) of specific size, with a given specific URL, hopefully with it's own icon, sort-of replacement of desktop apps. So in the Desktop menu I should be able to see 'Google Meet' (for instance) as an application with it's own icon, but clicking it launches Firefox with Google Meet's URL, and a window that is just 800x600 in size.

However, when I try to launch windows on Ubuntu MATE (also tried Lubuntu, and standard Ubuntu... all 20.04), firefox seems to ignore --window-size command line parameter, and all new windows are of exactly same size, which is the default size apparently, ignoring the command-line parameter. What gives ? How can I do what I am trying to as explained above (from firefox standpoint... I know how to create Ubuntu .desktop file etc.).

cheers, B

I want to use a local html file as my new tab page. Currently there is no easy way to do this as far as I can tell.

Firefox at some point has removed the in-built option to set the new tab as a local file. Setting the home page as a local file is possible. But setting the new tab as either home (note, not 'Firefox Home') or explicitly the local file is not an option (see attached image).

Previous forum posts point toward New Tab Override extension. However, in recent releases, add-ons cannot offer a work around as Firefox no longer allows add-ons to access local files. In the image attached, New Tab Override extension shows that it cannot use a local file as the new tab. It can however take a file and store it somewhere it has control over. This means every time I edit the local file, I need to manually re-upload this to the extension in each instance of Firefox. It is no longer a good option.

I am sure I used this feature not too long ago and it feels like a very simple thing. I am sure I must have missed some setting or option. Any help achieving this would be greatly appreciated.

While searching how to add multiple instances of Firefox I realized that there was a bug awhile ago where essentially every tab got opened up in the volume mixer. So I can't search for what I wanted because there were only threads about the bug.

I was wondering if there's anyway I can have multiple instances of Firefox in the windows volume mixer? If I open up two separate Firefox browsers it still merges them together in the mixer. I would like to see two different Firefox instances in the mixer is this possible?
