Hello, I am trying to add searx as my default search engine. Searx runs on port 8080 on my localhost therefore it's url is https://localhost:8080. I can successfully visit this url and use searx; however when I add searx using the green button to my search engine list, it strips the port resulting in an error when searching. This is very frustrating with no ability to change this setting as far as I can tell. Is there any work around for this issue?

Prior to FF 72 I was able to increase the font-size of all elements of a skin/theme with userchrome.css, but this no longer works. Now, only the captions and menus are affected by the following code.

  • {
   font-family:sans-serif !important;
   font-weight:500 !important;
   font-size:16px !important;
   text-shadow:none; !important;

}

Is there an additional css code snippet that works on the bookmarks library view? Please see the attached image

actually, I am facing two problems 1. Whenever I try to download any image of 720p,1080p, 4k, 7k, 8k or even any other dimensions (above 300pixels) and save it to downloads and then go back to check my downloaded images then i noticed that it automatically degrade my downloaded image quality and save it to a very low dimension(approx. 300x168 pixels) and currently I am using LENOVO-ideapad 330 laptop which supports 2k resolution and also I have also set my laptop to max resolution(1920x1080) ,so now tell me how to download any high quality image without degrading image quality.

2. When using Chrome, if I download two files named "unknown" it will save the second as unknown (1) and so on and so forth however when I use FireFox and I attempt to download two files with the same name I will have to type a new file name out and its quit annoying, so I have to save two or more same name files manually not automatically as other browsers do.

Tell me how to fix above two problems.

Below uploaded 3 screenshots , two screenshots of problem 1(2) and problem1(b) is for first problem and problem 2 named screenshot is for above mentioned problem 2 respectively .

Hi

I am busy setting up GPO for Mozilla Firefox after my client did a security audit.

So on the GPO I see that everything Applies to Firefox 60 ESR or later, does this mean the latest version of "normal" non ESR Firefox will also work?

Thanks

Attempting to add a tag is not working, once I close the bookmark editor the tag just added is gone.

The feature where when you began to type the tag in the box and it gave you a drop down list has stopped working.

Attempting to add a tag while in the library to existing bookmarks: the tag vanishes.

Attempting to create a new tag: once you exit, the tag is gone.

I am comparing different browser-based password manager implementations.

I noticed that Firefox prompts to remember credentials when a form is submitted, but some other browsers, e.g., Google Chrome, wait until the server responds with a success status before prompting (and, if the server responds with an error status, then the browser does not prompt to remember the credentials).

I assume there are pros/cons to these different approaches, and I would like to better understand the trade-offs.

Right now, all I see is that it is possible—even likely—for a user to tell Firefox to remember an incorrect/invalid password—which seems like a downside to Firefox's approach.

Hello

Is there some documentation to explain what the font size options mean?

I apologize but I havent studied fonts, I just use the one I feel most comfortable with.

Generally, for me, the font size is too small. And the Adv. page is confusing.

How does the minimum font size relate to the proportional or monospace sizes?

The proportional has serif, sans-serif. The the next 2 opts are serif and sans-serif. Are they related? Because I can set serif to sans-serif and sans-serif to serif.

Att. my settings

DuckDuckGo has bad habit of every now and then asking me to Download privacy essentials again. It's a big ugly add. Couldn't stand to see it. So I uninstalled DuckDuckGo as search engine. Selected Bing as search engine. Shut down my computer. Restarted. And DuckDuckGo still appears as search engine, even though in Options/Search I have clicked Bing as my search engine. How do I get rid of DuckDuckGo once and for all?

The issue is that Firefox is caching security certificates rather than loading them fresh.

This doesn't become an issue until the cached security certificate expires, then the user faces the "this website is not secure" warning page. The user tries to reload the page multiple times and continues to get the same warning page, then they call me in a panic and say "my website is not loading because it is not secure!"

The solution is Ctrl+F5 and voila the website loads without issue.

However, this is definitely an "issue" and the issue isn't with the website or the lack of knowledge of the end user. End users should not need to know how to refresh their local cache of a website to resolve a security certificate expiring when it has already been renewed. Firefox should by default check for a new security certificate when the cached version has expired or at least that is what would appear to be the logical progression of local caching.

Unfortunately, I have been unable to find a way to report this issue to Firefox developers...so I am reporting it here in hopes that someone in the community has the ear of the development team and can point out this issue.

Thanks, Dr. Pat

I did all the steps required in the checklist to enable A2HS to the website of my application:

To be served over HTTPs — the web is increasingly being moved in a more secure direction, and many modern web technologies (A2HS included) will work only on secure contexts. To have a manifest file with the correct fields filled in, linked from the HTML head. To have an appropriate icon available for displaying on the Home screen.

Still, the icon does not show up.

I suspect that a self-signed certificate might be the issue, for the documentation does not make clear whether or not the certificate needed to be issued from a CA. Only that it must be served over https.

Am I correct in my assumption?
