Subject line says it mostly. Normally, when you click a bookmark button it replaces the content in current window by default. I am aware I can hold CTRL or SHIFT down to launch a new tab or window respectively. I would however like to be able for certain bookmarks to set the default launch behavior, similar to setting the HTML target=_blank tag on a link. I need certain bookmarks to always launch into new windows (and even nicer would be to launch into a conveniently resized window to left or right of my current window). The idea is that there are frequently times when the content of both windows is needed at same time.

Dropdown lists are not displaying their contents when selected on certain websites, including eBay.

I have tried using Troubleshoot Mode and the dropdowns are still not displaying.

Here's an example where I am seeing this behaviour: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/255536264049?var=555488018135

When I select the Resistance Level dropdown, nothing happens. It's the same for any listing that has a dropdown.

This issue occurs in both RPM and Flatpak instances of Firefox.

I have tried the same page in Chromium browser on the same computer and the dropdown functions correctly in that browser.

I have also noted the same behaviour on other websites, such as train booking sites, but I don't have any other examples to share at the moment. It isn't an isolated eBay issue anyway.

Any ideas? Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

I am using a Dell Inspiron 3847 with the standard keyboard which came the system years ago

Recently, when viewing a large online page, when I try to scroll down, the scroll doesn't start until about two seconds after I press my scroll key (which is the lower-middle key of the 4 keys between my right-hand "Ctrl" key and the "0" of the 10-key keyboard at the far right of the keyboard).

This delay started happening a few weeks ago. I do not know whether something I did caused it.

How can I scroll my view starting immediately, rather than having to wait two seconds for it to start?

Any advice returned by Google seems to be obsolete or only worked perhaps in older versions of Firefox. The main idea of using userChrome.css to override the default styles for Reader View does not seem to work. My userChrome.css file does work on other items though (like removing the sidebar width restriction).

Whatever advice I find via Google perhaps cites outdated CSS selectors, but current selectors do not seem to be documented anywhere by Mozilla. Moreover, I cannot find any file on my local drive named aboutReader.css when using find or grep commands in bash, those this file name is alluded to when viewing a page in Reader View and then in turn viewing source on that transformed page.

Moreover, addons that would allow me to change the colors seem to be restricted in Reader View.

It does seem like something has changed in recent Firefox updates but I can't remember when I last saw, for instance, links in dark mode Reader View that were still pink (whereas now they are blue, and impossibly dark to see, especially when you are disabling as much blue light as possible through your operating system). I need a higher contrast color for links in dark mode Reader View so I can actually see them.

I can alternatively use the Tranquility Reader addon and have custom colors, but A) that addon does not work with the Automatic Reader View addon, whereby I can always have various sites appear in some sort of "reader view" whether the native one or Tranquility Reader, and B) hitting refresh when in Reader View will defeat some soft paywalls but this does not work with, e.g., Tranquility Reader, so I still would prefer to be able to custom colors in the native Reader View feature, rather than rely on an addon.

1. Where are the current styles for Reader View even documented? 2. Is overriding them now restricted? 3. Why did the link color change from pink to blue in newer versions of Firefox (this is a terrible accessibility bug)? 4 .Where is the alluded to aboutReader.css stylesheet actually stored on my computer (it doesn't seem to be a file on the filesystem in the Firefox profiles folder, it seems more like it is embedded in the Firefox binary/executable)? 5. Will Firefox settings ever allow us to set colors specifically for Reader View (I don't mean the override settings for all web pages, particularly web pages not being rendered in Reader View ... that setting does not help in Reader View, nor would it be the desired preference for pages not in Reader View)?

Thank you.

On startup this morning, I saw the Colorways options. I tried a few, but decided to keep my Dark theme.

One of the first set of Colorways options was "no option," a circle with a slash. On the new Firefox View > Colorways page, that is no longer an option. I tried Settings > Manage Colors, to no avail.

The Firefox I'm using now has screwed up colors. I want to revert to the Firefox I had on startup. How do I do that?

I first realized an issue with downloading PDFs through the Firefox viewer - I cannot. The download button does nothing, there is no prompt, no popup, and no file downloaded. I have also tried to print to pdf, that also seems to fail.

Today I realized I also cannot attach any files to an email through Gmail in Firefox, which is now leading me to believe that the software is unable to interface with my files at all.

Things I've tried include: - Turning off popup blocker - Refreshing Firefox in the ->Help->More Troubleshooting Information Menu - Starting Firefox in safe mode - Reinstalling through snap

The only way I can currently download files is through wget, and the only way I can send attachments is by installing Google Chrome, which is kind of a last resort for me.

I am running Ubuntu 22.04, this is on Firefox 106.0, though it didn't work last update either.

Thanks for any help

The process manager tells me which window/process is hogging memory. But I have multiple windows open on multiple workspaces. How do I switch to that window so that I can see what it is and decide what to do about it?

Until recently, clicking on a window listed in the process manager would bring that window to the current workspace (ubuntu/xfce). That changed recently. Now clicking/double-clicking does nothing and there only seems to be the option to kill the process.

I guess I can kill it and then look at recently closed windows to see what it was. But that is a bodgy.

Can I fix the process manager so that when I click on one of its listed windows, I get taken to that window on the workspace where it resides? (It always was inconvenient when previously, double-clicking on the window in the list, brought that window to the current workspace. You had then to work out where it had come from if you wanted to put it back).

Firefox's window/workspace management is otherwise excellent. It's the best in my opinion. When it starts-up, for example, it puts all the windows back on the workspaces where they were when it was last closed. Very nice.

i have a problem with Rightmove.co.uk webpages. On the webpage where you can see house plans, I zoom into the plan, and the plan just cannot be moved anymore and zoomed as well.

I tested Firefox latest version and also the ESR version, both had the same issue.

I have a SonicWall firewall on our office network. I can log into it from an office workstation, but when I try to export/save its Configuration I get the "Secure Connection Failed" message. I've searched for a solution to this but have only turned up two:

1) Disabling SSL Scanning Feature in Your Antivirus Software.

2) By Changing the SSL Settings On Firefox

Neither of these are desirable. For option 1, this computer is using Windows Defender, and disabling SSL scanning is not a feature that I know of. In either case, these solutions are across-the-board and would affect all pages I go to whereas the only one I'd like to get to is this SonicWall device located on our internal LAN.

I recall that Firefox used to allow you to make an exception on a per-site basis. Is this no longer possible? Is there any other way to accomplish this without disabling SSL validation for all sites?

I am honestly in chock with Firefox's terrible decision of not providing any option for the user to delete downloaded files.

It is honestly amazing that they came up with such a terrible decision. My downloads folder is a complete mess now and there seems to be no way to fix this.

I don't understand why not just provide an option for the user to only open files. People should be able to choose their settings.

I refereed to this previous post and the solution there didn't work: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1370409. By setting browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to false.

Is there actually no way to only open files now?

Moving from Windows to Linux and in the process moving from Chrome to Firefox. In Linux, there seems to be an issue where Firefox isn't recognizing that I have installed Chrome. No problem, I went into Windows to do the move instead. But since the data isn't saved and you have to have an instance of Firefox running (?) to actually sync, I decided to download Firefox on my iPhone, get my passwords from Chrome, then sync to my iPhone, boot back to Linux, then sync on Linux with the data on my iPhone, and somehow in the process locked myself out of logging into Firefox on my iPhone due to how many times I've had to log in to Firefox to figure out this convoluted and broken process. People are wanting to switch to Firefox due to ad blocking support, and this is a massive barrier to entry. Can we just fix importing from a csv file?
