Using latest updated Windows 10 and latest updated Firefox 92.0, when I open up Google Maps and click on "Show your Location" button it shunts me off to the middle of Chicago, rather than downtown Menlo Park, CA.

I double checked whether my WIndows Settings were set to allow location, and it was still set to "On." I also tried using Chrome and there, everything worked as expected. I also tried Microsoft Edge, and there it was broken as well.

So, the problem could be with Windows or Firefox apparently...Not sure how to fix or at least work around the problem.

When I use control-F to search in a page, a ribbon appears at the bottom of the page with a search bar and associated controls. Somewhere on that bar, there should be an "X" to dismiss the search. It's not there anymore. (See screenshot.) The only way I've found to dismiss the search is to put the cursor in the search bar and press the ESC key. That's a bother. This must be a new bug, right?

Hi community.

Recently, I bought a new computer. It's an M1 Mac. Trouble has occurred for the upgrade from Intel mac.

When I print PDF with Firefox, it prints at an really low resolution. but, print with Safari can print as usual.

How can I print normally? Do you have any knowledge on the matter.

Many thanks,

I'm using Firefox on a desktop (OSX Catalina 10.15.7) with multiple monitors. If I go into full screen mode on any youtube video , e.g., Welcome to Firefox (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRlmP6xWdw0), not only do I lose access to the menubar on the fullscreen monitor, I lose it on the other two monitors I have open Firefox windows.

The browser.fullscreen.autohide setting does not make a difference. I would expect that the only monitor that the menubar is hidden on is the one displaying the fullscreen content.

The attached Monitor1, Monitor2 images show the missing menubar on the respective monitors where a Firefox browser window is open.

Is there a way to change the location of the default storage directory? I'm talking about ~/.mozilla/firefox/tjdaag57.default-release/storage/default which gradually fills with files from all the websites I've visited. That directory slowly increases in size and I don't want that, so I'm looking for a way to change the location where these files go.

Firefox leaves full-screen mode when window manager remaps window to be in a frame and re-sizable.

In the window-manager that I use (KDE plasma), I can ask the window-manager to exit full-screen mode, without telling the window. This allows me to tell a window to be in full-screen mode, while in a framed window. I have attached a screen-shot of chrome showing a youtube video. Both youtube and the chrome are in full screen mode, however the window manager has re-sized it and added decorations (title-bar&frame), and is allowing me to resize, move, minimize, maximize, etc.

This works for every program that I have used (that has a full-screen mode). However it is not working for Firefox. It seems that Firefox is triggering off of the wrong event.

My guess: the window-manager sets NET_WM_STATE_FULLSCREEN to enter full-screen, and would normally clear this attribute to exit full screen. When we exit full-screen, but stay in full-screen mode, the attribute is not cleared. However Firefox is triggering off of something else such as a re-size event.

Use-case: What I am trying to do

  1. Enter full screen mode: browser hiders tab-bar, and address bar, maybe web-page changes layout (e.g. you-tube resizes video player to fill window)
  2. Tell Window-manager to leave full-screen-mode, but not inform browser (or other app). Browser is now still hiding tab-bar, address-bar, site is till showing video in whole-window, but window can be moved and re-sized.

This works for every other app that I have user. (Some apps don't have full-screen-mode, so this does not apply to them. But it works for all that do have it.)

Hello,

Windows 10 Desktop Computer Updated, Firefox 92.0

The folder I need yo go to in Documents, it goes to Downloads Instead Automatically!

When I try to get an attachment, for an email I'm sending out, it goes to the wrong folder. It just sits there doing nothing, with the hour glass on. I wait and wait, so I can change the location. Most times it doesn't stop. A very few times, when that stops, I located which folder I need, and it just goes into the hour glass mode again!

If I click on the screen, an error message comes up with something like, program not responding, do you want to close the program? or wait until it stops? With thus, I think it's dealing with the Folder that isn't responding! BUT no, when I click to close the program, LO And Behold, Firefox Closes!

I have a lot of attachments, I need to deal with. It doesn't ask me, which folder I want to get the attachment from?

Any Help Here?

Thank You!! Take Care!! Everyone Stay Healthy and Safe (Pets Also)!!!

v92

This issue started happening only after v92 self-installed, as far as I can tell.

When I start typing in the address bar, even one letter, websites I frequently visit immediately autocomplete. I do NOT have these websites as saved bookmarks. I have cleared history within Firefox, with CCleaner, and with Privazer, but doing so does not affect this behavior. (CCleaner and Privazer also clear everything else, as far as I can tell.)

In Settings, under "Address Bar > When using the address bar, suggest", I have Bookmarks checked. If I uncheck Bookmarks, the behavior stops. BUT AGAIN, I DON'T HAVE THESE SITES BOOKMARKED.

I did a search in C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla for files containing the web addresses and found that they are contained in a filed called SiteSecurityServiceState.txt in one of Profiles (not the current one as far as I can tell). I don't know if this is relevant. And when I alter the web address in this file (e.g., change abc.com to axxbc.com) and save the file, the auto-complete behavior doesn't change.

Finally, I have an Excel file with hyperlinks to my favorite news and blog sites, which I use frequently. These are the same sites that are auto-completing. But if I delete this file, the behavior still occurs. I don't know how the existence of such a file could cause the behavior, but I thought I'd mention it.

Anyway, does anyone know where these addresses could be coming from or stored? Thanks.

Greetings. I had to compose this using the Notes app on my Samsung S9+ because when I type into a "comments" box and select a word based on a partial spelling the word fails to appear. There is a brief flash of something but nothing sticks unless I fully type each word and not select the word from the choices offered. This does not happen if I use the Samsung browser. Very frustrating. Best wishes to you all. Take care. Sincerely, Terry

I have a dell xps 7390 2-in-1 one laptop loaded with Pop_os 21.04. (Linux) and vanilla firefox with no extensions installed.

The laptop is touch screen.

When I tap the address bar at the top, the onscreen keyboard opens up. i am able to type into the address bar. Hitting the enter key on the onscreen keyboard does nothing. I have to tap the little go icon.

If I repeat this activity using the mouse and keyboard. hitting the enter button works fine.
