When scrolling a web site with an embedded video, as that video scrolls off screen, it automatically pops out to a picture-in-picture video on the lower right-hand part of the page. How can I disable this. I don't want this to ever happen.

This is so strange. Usually cookie selection is after you sign in not before...

How to PERMANENTLY close Bookmarks sidebar panel?

As of a few days ago whenever I start Firefox the window appears with the Bookmarks sidebar panel already opened. I click the "X" on the sidebar and it will close - until the next time I start Firefox. If I choose Menu->View->Sidebar->Bookmarks and uncheck it the panel will close - until the next time I start Firefox. No matter how the Bookmarks sidebar is closed, it will always reappear when Firefox is restarted. Even if I switch to some other sidebar, Bookmarks will replace it on startup.

I've searched about:config and found no setting which seems to control sidebar behavior on startup.

I assume this is the result of some recent update. Is there no longer a way to permanently disable the Bookmarks sidebar?

HDR videos (specifically smpte2084 (PQ) / bt2020 videos) on youtube don't show correctly since last few updates of firefox on mac M1 & M2 sonoma 14.5. Firefox shows overly bright (almost whitewashed) videos, seems like something changed either with MacOS or firefox in last few updates. Firefox was working fine on older MacOS last 2 years with HDR videos.

Here is a link to test this problem on Mac, Safari shows the same video correctly in HDR https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s52wB4lKLeo

Kindly fix this problem soon.

Until recently I used to be able to clear my searches ( with clock icon) in the address bar, by doing the following:

 "Type or paste enough text for Firefox to show the item in the drop-down.
   Press the ↓ down arrow key to highlight the item.
   Hold down the Shift key and press Delete on your keyboard."

This no longer works, can anyone please tell me why it no longer works, and what is the alternative.

Many Thanks Galinda

Hello. I was browsing for something on Amazon and I noticed this annoying icon in my search bar as well as a popup asking me to enable some new feature called "Review Checker". I have clicked close, and it appeared again. Then I clicked Not Now. Still I wasn't sure it's completely disabled because the icon in the search bar wasn't gone. I've done extensive search on how to properly disable this feature but I couldn't find a working solution.

For example, there are some config flags suggested here, https://connect.mozilla.org/t5/discussions/disable-review-checker/td-p/47370 and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1443734

Accordingly, I've set browser.shopping.experience2023, browser.shopping.experience2023.ads.enabled, and browser.shopping.experience2023.enabled to FALSE. I restarted Firefox. However, once I got to the product page on Amazon, I still see the Review Checker button in my search bar. This feels like a bug. Should I submit a bug ticket or is there a way to make it disappear for good?

I have one Windows and one MacBook machine and Firefox on both. Both are signed in to my Mozilla account. On the Windows machine I have 5+ containers, these containers never sync to my MacBook Firefox. I have signed out of all machines, including an iPad and iPhone. Nothing has worked over multiple months. Note that at some time in the past the containers did sync.

The MacBook is on Sonoma 14.5, and FireFox 128.0. The Windows is Windows 10 Pro and FireFox 128.0.

Please help.

On occasion, eBay styling breaks, leaving me with plain unstyled HTML. Photo below for example.

This doesn't happen everytime, and it happens randomly. But once it has happened once there's no good way of fixing it, and I often have to swap browser.

There have been a number of questions about this on support.mozilla, but all are archived. One of the suggested solutions is to disable tracking protection for the site, on the premise that eBay's tracking files are mixed in with their styling files, but disabling tracking protection does not fix the problem.

I'm using FF 128.0 on macOS Sonoma 14.5.

For me, the solution was to disable the disconnect.me browser extension.

Hi - I unfortunately had to use Hubstaff tracking software to complete a job. It required me to give it Firefox permissions. I do not recall everything. I do remember that it required Document privelages. It seems a rather intrusive software. I have tried looking through settings to disable permissions and could not find it specifically. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
