Issue When opening a link from any other app, the Firefox switches to another virtual desktop if there's an existing Firefox window open.

Reproduce the Issue

  1. Set Firefox to default browser
  2. On Windows 10, open 2 virtual desktops. Use Task View button in Taskbar or use keyboard shortcut Win + Tab and then click on New Desktop. Now you should see 'Desktop 1' and 'Desktop 2', if Task View is opened again.
  3. On Desktop 2, open a new Firefox window.
  4. Switch back to Desktop 1 from Task View.
  5. Open any link (E.g.: https://www.mozilla.org/) from any other app like MS Word, MS Teams, etc.
  6. The virtual desktop would switch to Desktop 2 and open the link on exiting Firefox window.

Question Is there a way to open the link on same virtual desktop in a new window?

Improvement - If it already doesn't exist. Instead of opening the link in existing Firefox window on Desktop 2, open a new Firefox window on Desktop 1 to open the link.

Every time I log in or refresh outlook, I get an email ad for outlook upgrade. It is from microsoft, and can be opened as an email, but it is an ad and can't be blocked. These emails remain blocked with Brave, and I am running an ad blocker. Will mozilla update to remove these ads, or is there an ad blocker that works better with Mozilla. When I inspect it, the first line shows:- <meta charset="utf-8"><meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge"><meta http-equiv="pragma" content="no-cache"><meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width,initial-scale=1,user-scalable=0"><meta name="google" value="notranslate"><meta name="format-detection" content="telephone=no"><meta name="scriptVer" content="20220513004.19"><meta name="physicalRing" content="WW"><meta name="environment" content="Prod"><meta name="bootFlights" content="sourcelistapi,novaappbar,sendClaimsChallengeInQuery,performanceDatapointHealth,patchnode"><meta name="cdnUrl" content="//res.cdn.office.net/"><meta name="backupCdnUrl" content="//res-2.cdn.office.net/"><meta name="cdnContainer" content="owamail/"><meta name="devCdnUrl" content=""><meta name="ariaUrl" content=""><meta name="compactAriaUrl" content=""><meta name="wcssFrameUrl" content="https://webshell.suite.microsoft.scloud"><meta name="scriptPath" content="scripts/"><meta name="owaIsAuthenticated" content="OwaIsAuthenticated"><link rel="shortcut icon" href="/mail/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon"><link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="//res.cdn.office.net/assets/mail/pwa/v1/pngs/apple-touch-icon.png"><title>Outlook</title><style>@font-face { </p></style>

Open links in tabs instead of new windows

Hi, I have set Firefox to "Open previous windows and tabs" and to "Open links in tabs instead of new windows". When the system opens Firefox for me because I've clicked … (read more)

Hi, I have set Firefox to "Open previous windows and tabs" and to "Open links in tabs instead of new windows". When the system opens Firefox for me because I've clicked a link in a document, I would like the link to open in a new tab of that previous window which Firefox opens at startup. For many years this was its behaviour. In Chrome for example, this was not and is still not the case.

Recent upgrades to Firefox have changed its behaviour to that of Chrome. When I click a link, Firefox now opens the link in a new window and then opens the previous window on top of that. The link I wanted to follow is behind and invisible.

Could someone check and see if this is related to my system (I'm running Monterey) or if it's reproducible? I can't think of a reason for this change so it feels like a bug, either on my system or in the app itself.

Thanks for any help!

I just bought a new laptop and installed the firefox browser on it. I was trying to log into my account for Elder Scrolls online so I could download the game onto my new machine, but the sign in window would blink and a little white box in the lower left would briefly read "javascript;"

I have no trouble logging on to my account from the site on my older computer, which presumably does not (yet) have the same version of firefox as the newer machine. I was able to log in to the ESO site from my new computer via chrome, so at least I can download the game.

But I'm puzzled as to why Firefox is suddenly incompatible with this site when it never has been before to my knowledge.

There are a number of old threads regarding this and having worked through them it is still unresolved. 1) I have cleared cache/cookies 2) I have disabled all extensions 3) I have turned off tracking 4) I have tried in safe mode - still the same.

This is not just on one website - it is on ALL that have Facebook feeds. It is NOT just on my laptop - I have asked others to try - they have the same result - blank page. ...so please don't suggest re-installing Firefox!!

An example is: https://dragonsdensoftplay.co.uk/News-Events/news-events.html

The feed works ok in other browsers.

Thank you

hi,

i'm using FF (version 98 at the moment) to print local files. It is key to me to edit header and footer for each print! the only solution i found so far to edit them at all, is to go to about:config and for example search for print.print_headerleft. Besides that is not usable at all, it simply doesn't work! The header and footer remain the same. Please tell me how can i change header and footer?

If you delete the, in my opinion much better "page setup", why don't you include all it's funktions in the new print dialog?

another problem is the size of the new print preview! it's much to small! make it resizeable please.

Or just give us back the "page setup". That would be a big advantage over chrome and edge, which suffer the same printing problems.

Thanks

I wanted to print out an order placed online but could only print part of it.

The order took up about 1.5 pages when displayed in Firefox, but I could only print the upper 2/3 of it. That’s all the Print Preview displayed. It was cut off at the bottom. There was no option to print the missing lower third or a second page.

I can scroll Firefox to display the lower part but Print Preview still shows only the upper part.

I can change FF’s scale to 80% in order to show the whole order on the screen, but Print Preview still only shows the upper part.

I can scale Print Preview to 70%, but then it’s difficult to read.

I don’t recall having this problem with earlier versions of Firefox.

How can I print my order on 2 pages so that I can read it?
