Hi,

I'm looking for a plugin or website that is able to convert voice to text capability on Firefox. For Chrome there are many solutions (VoiceNote II, Voice Recognition, Dictanote). And I need to use it on firefox.

In firefox, as I think, permissions settings/UI haven't yet been sorted out however, so permission can't be granted to use it by the user, so it can't be used.

Thank you!

I'm trying to keep my work gmail and personal gmail in separate containers. I've assigned mail.google.com and accounts.google.com to my Work container, and it works fine in that container.

When I try to sign IN to my personal gmail in a personal tab, it still works fine if I select "Would you still like to open in this current Container?" -> "Open in container". But when I sign OUT, I get the same prompt multiple times and each opening a new tab. I believe this is because gmail does some redirecting during the sign-out process. If I don't go through all these container prompts, I don't get signed out.

I'm probably missing something obvious, but how exactly do I achieve different gmail accounts in different containers if they all use the same domain?

Cheers!

Just got a new laptop. Am trying to export the bookmarks from the old laptop to the new laptop. The backup (.json) says it cannot process the file. The .html just does nothing. Firefox version is the same on both laptops. When I open the .html on my old laptop, I can see all of my bookmarks. When I open it on my new laptop, it seems to be blank, even though it's clearly not. I've tried several times. Version on both laptops is 103.0.2 64 bit. HELP!!

I got a new computer running windows 11.

I installed Firefox as my default browser. I then noticed the address bar performing search which is annoying as hell and actually and interferes with productivity as I use search. Basically, I have to redo searches after the address bar. It is problematic. The one off search from address bar according to last survey only 26% of users like it. rest want it gone.

As for me, I have tried the solution of Keyword set to false and the browser url oneoff also set to false.

I saw another suggested item of turn off keyword search. However, that item does not have an off button or switch within Windows 11. Just check marks of the suggested keywords that developers installed into the field when downloaded. I unchecked all the items as that was the only change I could do. So, there is no keyword selected. I closed all browser windows and restarted Firefox.

The address bar search still occurs. This make the previous question and answer solution invalid as of August 12, 2022.

I consider this a BUG and a major development of Firefox browser failure. When I search, I am looking for generally wide range of results and alternative search options are better than specific one off search. Best example; What is difference between Clementines and Mandarins? As a one off search you get one set of results. When you use the proper search box of a search engine, you get totally different results that are more useful and less time consuming to know the full range of answers, history, physical traits as well as other items not considered in the address bar search. In the search engine box, you do get the address bar search items. However, they always are 6 to 20 down the list of preferred or most useful. However, the address bar search results do not have all the top 5 items from the search engine search. It is a matter of how the address bar does the search that is at issue. For whatever reason, the results are not as good as direct input. You will have to determine through investigation why that is. However, that is a year's worth of investigation if anyone would do it. In the mean time, this address bar search needs a simple button that does all the changes necessary to make it stop!

Additionally, I find multiple related search options that are given by search engines extremely helpful when looking for related type of searches. This is something that the address bar search can not do and was never designed or allowed to do. Thus, it causes loss of productivity.

As such and because it does cause loss of productivity, it is a BUG and by law, Mozilla must remove items or provide easy solution to stop productivity failure.

The current solution does not work. That means Mozilla must provide an update immediately to make this feature go away for those who find it annoying, useless or interference with productivity!

Draftkings uses Geocomply to verify location in Oregon. A few days ago all attempted logins began to fail due to firefox not recognizing this app when Draftkings website initiated location verification. It has not worked since in Firefox. Just tried Edge browser and it works fine there. I have checked all settings, been thru multiple tutorials and still, Draftkings website asks me to download and install this app, which is obviously installed and working already since Edge used it. I can see the app in my list but its become obvious firefox can't. Help

Hello. I have just installed Windows 11 and have a problem with the Firefox browser that I didn't have with Windows 10.

On the Talk Radio website: (https://talkradio.co.uk/), there is a "Listen Live" button which, when clicked creates a popup window for their Radio Player application. Under Windows 11, the window pops up, but is empty (this was fine under Windows 10). I tried this with Edge and it works fine.

Could someone look into this please? I don't want to have to use Edge.

Many thanks,

Kevin
