hello,

What's a pity with this video overlay option is that the subtitle does not accompany the overlay but remains in the original page.

What would be interesting is to have the subtitle accompanying the detached window.

Do you think it's feasible to recover both the video and the subtitle in the main window?

Hi! I just installed Firefox in my Debian 10, that I have just installed. I have to install several users in that old Mac Mini that was going to garbage and now it's working again!

I decided to activate Sync in order to keep working in the same pages from one session to another - handy! But after I login, the next page is a 500 error! This has ocurred in my Macbook with macOS, as it should, but thought I should report somewhere.

What is really strange is the logout button is not available in user menu as in the mac version, this is odd. It tuck me some hard time to manage to logout! Guess is a real flaw...

But my tests has worked really good in that old hardware!

I have a web page with a link to a PDF on it. When I click on this link, the PDF opens in a new tab using the Adobe viewer, and displays fine. However, links within the PDF itself are ignored. When I view the same web page in Chrome or IE, the PDF also opens in a viewer, but under these browsers, the links within the PDF itself work as well. Is there any setting or adjustment I can make to Firefox or its PDF viewer to make the links within the PDF work? Thanks for any help. WJH

Has anyone experienced this issue?

I have set Firefox for macOS to use the default theme in which uses the system colours.

The system goes into dark mode without issue in Firefox, however, Firefox fails to go back to light mode when the system goes back. Currently it is the only application that I have this trouble with and I can not workout what the issue is.

Tried reinstalling Firefox.

I haven't heard anyone else having this issue so now wondering if there is something uniquely wrong with my system or set-up?

I would be grateful for any ideas

I don't like the megabar, and I have looked around to see if there are any fixes for the most recent Firefox 77 update that forces that user to have it (like at least one other update, it just assumes that people like it). I have tried using the userChrome.css file, but that didn't work. I have also tried going into about:config, which also didn't work. Is there any possible way to say 'I never want to see this megabar again in my life'? Or a way to tell the devs that it should NOT be a default option on new updates? Or a way to turn it off that will always be around, unlike the about:config deal? Any help would be great. I attached an image of the megabar.

Video Scaling Awful in Firefox

I'm having a weird problem where 4k videos that are scaled down to say the normal YouTube player size look terrible, hard to find the right word to explain it, but edges are jagged. It improves a lot if I full screen the player to presumably closer to 4k dimensions.

Changing playback to 1080p looks better than 4k, again I'm sure it's to do with scaling.

  • I don't have this problem when testing the same videos in Internet Explorer.
  • It's not just my videos, other peoples videos are doing it to.
  • Updated to the latest version of Firefox.
  • Updated my GPU drivers (MSI Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660).
  • Tested in Firefox safe mode and disabled/enabled hardware acceleration.

I'm running out of ideas, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

On 77.0.

Noticed that after last update, opening a new tab with audio on the previous tab (such as a YouTube video playing) causes the audio to pause/stutter each time a new tab is opened.

No other changes to this system, and good amount of resources available in each test. Would be great if someone could quickly repro. (I am not discounting a machine-specific cause yet.)

I teach at James Madison University and must download zip and jpg files for instruction. Sometime within the last 48 hours, Firefox would not download any jpg or zip files. For years now, this has never been an issue. The tab indicates connecting, the grey shadow passes through the tab and then nothing. I have tried this at different academic sites and the same happens. There is no problem downloading zip or jpg files using Chrome. What happened and how to fix it?

Computer crashed, Firefox history is gone and will not be saved

Hi everybody, I'm running Firefox 77.0 on my 2014 rMBP with OSX 10.11.6. A few hours ago my OS crashed and I reset my computer. Once I did this, I opened everything back as it was pre-crash and all my Firefox tabs and absolutely everything else loaded correctly except for my history.

Every time I type a word, no previously visited URLs will load up in my URL field, I checked my History and it seems to have deleted 99% of every site I've visited. The recently closed tabs and windows are still there, and I can reload them if I press cmd+shift+t, however the rest of my actual history seems to be gone. I've reset (normally) my computer a couple more times, repaired disk permissions and whatnot and for some reason it won't even save whatever other sites I've now visited since it was wiped. Am I screwed here?

With 8 tabs open, Windows task manager shows 58% CPU and 1279 MB memory use in 12 processes. The built in Firefox task manager shows less than 300 MB and mostly "low" energy impact. Why is there such a discrepancy between the two task reports?

Screenshots explain this better

I changed the password for the firefox account because I installed a new windows, after which all login details and bookmarks disappeared. during the password change I was not informed that I would lose all data! I let you keep this information in the cloud in trust and you deleted it? Have you gone crazy!?!?!?!? I want to get back my data immediately! I see that a lot of people have a similar problem and you don't do anything about it? How can I trust you at all in this situation?

I have installed Firefox and Firefox Beta on MacOS and open them in that order so both are running concurrently; Firefox (not beta!) is selected as the default browser on my computer. Whenever I follow a link from any application that is not a browser, new tabs are opened in Firefox Beta.

If Firefox Beta is not running, tabs open as expected, in Firefox.

My expectation is that tabs would always open in the browser that is set as the default.

Is there any way I can tell the Operating System to open new tabs in Firefox and not in Firefox Beta?
