I tried to bookmark a page but I was not successful in Firefox (am also using Chrome and I was able to do it there). I tried using Ctrl + D and using a mouse by clicking the star, both were unsuccessful. There was no error message.

Can you help? Thanks.

Every time I close and re-open firefox, the extensions Ublock Origin and Translate Web Pages become invisible in my tool bar even though they are pinned. The extensions also stop working until I disable and then enable them again, as well as this they also lose all settings I have saved on them. For some reason other extensions such as Youtube enhancer do not do this and work perfectly fine. I have tried looking up the question to find related but not applicable solutions. any help appreciated

I have tried several ways without success. The server is being used as the master server in a Citrix environment and the users are expecting a near Windows 10 experience in their VDI. Any help would be appreciated

I know this is most likely a feature, but it's been annoying the hell out of me since I switched from Chrome and I don't know how to disable it. I have looked at multiple (~3) Reddit threads (two of which were archived) which gave me a total of 0 answers, I've looked at other forums, and I've found, get this, nothing. It's so annoying when for whatever reason, my music gets paused and then it's not at the volume I need it to be at, so I turn it up and then almost immediately turn it back down because of the audio fading. All I want is to know how to disable this, PLEASE.

Dear community,

User in our engineering dept would like to use Fiefox Developer Edition to develop custom applications. As an IT I need to check application regarding security and support levels. I already check your support options – community and commercial so I would like to send you some questions regarding data protection. Please enter yes or no.

1 The application must not automatically transfer any company proprietary data to external networks (like the Internet): 2 The application should not open listener ports on the client: 3 The application must work with the existing security settings, e.g. no changes in GPO-setting or Edge/Chrome-settings (e.g. they must work without changing ActiveX settings): 4 The application must not reduce the security level of the computer system (e.g. the application must not exchange DLL-s or other files with lower and unpatched versions): 5 The application must work without admin privileges:

Hi

Trying to make sync work the way I want. Initial question:

I've synced tabs between Windows desktop and Android. Now I would like to bookmark all those tabs in the desktop browser, without opening them first. I've found out how to view them in the side bar, but I see no option to bookmark all tabs.

It would be nice to have synced Tabs in the Library window and Options panel.

Just recently anytime i try to connect to links on my browser that have "Ad" in front of the address eg. Ad.https://www.lowes.com/lowe's®/home I get this prompt

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at www.googleadservices.com. If you entered the right address, you can:

   Try again later
   Check your network connection
   Check that Firefox has permission to access the web (you might be connected but behind a firewall)

Any ideas as to why this is happening and how to fix it ?

new tabs wont work correctly. I have to close the browser and start over. It will always hang again.

I really want to keep all my tabs and have this setting on but its disabled. I was configurating this pc via "privasy.sexy" scripts and my best guess is that "disable telemetry" setting which you can see on second screenshot is the cause. But maybe you are familiar with this situaton and know th real reason.

I know the sc i provided are in polish but above the disabled startup settings there is an information that another organisation is in charge of my browser.

Thanks for your work and let me know if there are any fxes. ^^

Example problems when handling PDFs, despite having "ask me what to do" or whatever set in preferences:

"Open in browser" results in a copy being saved to downloads folder, with random string filename.

"Open in [locally installed pdf viewer]" results in a copy being saved to downloads folder, with random string filename.

Quickbooks can't show receipt or document previews in the little pane. It insists on downloading it.

Gmail, Proton, and probably other email services can't render previews; same behaviour as qb.

How to fix, please? I don't even know how to properly articulate this problem, but it means half my browsing can't be done in firefox. Very frustrating.

Hi,

 I've just spent an annoyingly long time trying to do something that turned out to be really easy, it was just finding out what to do that made it seem hard.
 The issue of where search results open is completely ignored in the help pages, judging from the number of questions in Support on the issue, that appears to be something of an oversight. As does not displaying the date questions were posted, reading about what applies in an old verion of Ff may not do so in the current one, it didn't in my case.
 I wanted to know how to make the search results from Google on the search bar, open in a new tab, as opposed to the same tab, the current default setting. All it takes is changing the value of: browser.link.open_newwindow, from false to true in about:config.
 Simple to do, finding out that's what you have to do, isn't. 
 I thought I'd suggest that you might consider addressing this matter, I'm sure it would be welcomed by at least some users.
 Anyway, thank you for a great browser.

Hello,

When ever trying to watch videos on for example youtube. When the video loads or you pause and play it, there is a ~2 second audio blank period. Video doesn't stutter or anything, just no audio right after loading a video or playing it again after pausing.

Ive tried other video sites also and the same problem occurs there.

This computer is running a intel i3 12th gen with hdmi cable to a sony tv

Hello! Sites like Gartic Phone and Whiteboard Fox do not respond to my Huion tablet pen. I don't think Firefox recognizes the pen as a drawing device.

I have done some troubleshooting and have figured out that this is a Firefox specific issue: Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge both respond to my pen on those sites. I saw another person was struggling with this exact same issue, but the thread was archived with no response.

How do I fix this? Was there something I missed in the settings?
