When I do front-end development, the framework I used is antd pro(Based on React). After the webpack packing the project, the developing page will be automatically reloaded(May be called HMR, Hot Module Replacement). But after the page reloaded, the CSS of the page is not rendered, It also need refresh the page by F5. Thus, HMR does not work correctly on Firefox, but it can work on other browsers like Edge, Chrome

Hello, I wonder why Firefox is deleting all my cookies same time without my permission after a while (apprx. 6-8 months)?

- Private Browsing is disabled. I never need this option, so it's turned off all the time - "Clear history when Firefox closes" option is unchecked

Hello, First let me thank Mozilla again for a great experience. I've been using Firefox as my main browser for many years and since some time I also started supporting Mozilla financially with whatever little I can with recurring payments. To the problem: since some time patch / commit view on HitHub with Firefox is broken. I guess many @mozilla have github accounts so you can open and read https://support.github.com/ticket/1318472 but to summarise: my first entry there was: ``` When viewing Linux kernel style Pull Requests on GitHub, using Firefox, TABs are displayed as 4 spaces, which is confusing, since the default is 8 spaces, which is also what is displayed in chrome and chromium. E.g. https://github.com/thesofproject/sof/pull/4747/commits/e9cc9312841a9329797b0b676335c8cb1a0dc779 ``` then a screenshot (attached) and a clarification to it: ``` As you can see there the patch area between lines 238 and 245 is wrongly indented by 4 spaces, whereas areas above and below are correctly indented by 8 spaces. ``` Then more: ``` No, space isn't used for indentation in that code. They can download raw code and verify, I'm sure they know how to do that. Why don't they just reproduce that themselves? Start Firefox, navigate to any PR commit like https://github.com/thesofproject/sof/pull/4884/commits/b19a64df2c2fcd63d7407ef500fd3312287c8995 and click arrows above and below the diff to display surrounding code. Then navigate to or download the raw patch https://github.com/thesofproject/sof/commit/b19a64df2c2fcd63d7407ef500fd3312287c8995.patch to see TABs used everywhere. Should be very easy to verify. ``` and their last reply was ``` From a technical standpoint this is not a regression. It's a problem with the way firefox interprets the combination of the tab-size css and the particular markdown we use for our diffs.

After reviewing the Issue in more detail there it has not been prioritized and will most likely not be addressed in the near future. ``` This is a deal-breaker for me. I spend hours daily reviewing GitHub pull requests. And I'd really not want to use a different browser just because of this... Please help! Thanks Guennadi

The article explaining a particular add-on seems to say a Firefox add-on will chose what file to put a new bookmark in, and/or rearrange bookmarks. This seems to say that rather than allowing you to make a choice. It will even rearrange the current folders or content. Am I misinterpreting? Thanks!

Hi,

I have noticed that if I want to use the +key (plus key) as a shortcut, the following commands don't work:

I'm using the latest Firefox version (91.5.0esr/64-bit) on a MacBook Pro 2021 14" (Mac OS 12.1) on a German keyboard. The German part is important, because if I switch my system language to English and correctly guess where the +key would be positioned, the commands work.

Most importantly, this only happens on Firefox. If I use the same commands on Safari, or Google Chrome, it works perfectly fine. So this must be a Firefox issue.

I would really appreciate it if there was a solution for this. I know this has been an issue for a longer time because I had the same problem on my last MacBook Pro (13", 2011, High Sierra).

Last but not least Firefox is great, and it is by far my favorite browser. So if there is any solution for this I would be most grateful (and if the solution somehow could be automatically included in all future Firefox updates even better!)

Thank you in advance.

Kind regards, M

PS: I apologize if this was worded awkwardly. English is not my first language.

Why has Add Blocker Ultimate & cookies auto delete & Ant Video Downloader & All Screen Recorder & right click copy and paste ALL stopped working and disappeared from my tool bar immediately after FireFox version 96.0 updated 2 days ago on my windows 10 home laptop? I followed instructions in Mozilla support forums to customize the tool bar settings and reset default settings as instructed and even said "Abbra cadabra" and just like a bad magic trick nothing changed. I have uninstalled them and reinstalled them after rebooting except for AVD which FireFox no longer offers as an Addon extension ??? I read an article written by a volunteer to another person asking for help with these exact problems that started exactly after the version96.0 update , the person asked where to get the older version 95.0 back because all these features work in that version and the volunteer made a complete fool and liar out of himself saying that going back to older versions rarely solved the issues and that the new update had absolutely nothing to do with causing these issues. So either I also am mentally ill and imagining all these issues or that volunteer needs to apologize to the lady and print a retraction. The only thing that changed on my system was from version 95.0 to 96.0 nothing else and I checked with HP support assistant that came factory installed when I bought this laptop from HP direct 8 months ago as well as Microsoft and McAfee my antivirus protection and was given a clean bill of health from all 3. I uninstalled 96.0 and reinstalled 94.0 and can once again right click copy & paste and reinstalled all those apps direct from FireFox Addons browser page and they all show to be on and working but they are not working and I cannot get them back on the tool bar. Is there anyone that can help me solve this issue? I'm a carpenter and have zero tech skills like you people and have asked at least 100 people over the last 3 or 4 years if there is a computer training class or something I can take to try to learn things like you people know and not one person has ever told me how or where I could get the training? So I guess I have 2 questions and please someone help me fix the issues and tell me where I can get the education to hopefully never be a pain in your you know where again? Thank you very much have a wonderful week & blessings to you and all you love Sincerely PS. I am not technologically able to do the troubleshooting process to send the data I have spent 30 minutes trying to understand all this sorry

These types of answers are unacceptable as "Help", just sayin. "I'm wondering WHY you want to use magnet links for (besides the obvious reason of torrenting)."

The reason why someone would want to do something isn't of your concern, really. However, WHY someone would want to set a particular application of launching magnet links, without having to search on help forums to find something hidden in about:config is because not everyone wants to install a list of 3rd party programs to a Windows installation. Nor CAN everybody install such things. So what some people do is use "Portable Apps." When this is done, firefox isn't going to become aware that this type of program CAN be used on the Windows install in question, because it's not actually installed.

Why is there not an "Add" option for the "Applications" list in the settings panel? That makes no sense. Essentially what's been done here is that Firefox says "I'll only interface with programs that are fully installed on this machine, and to hell with your portable apps."

I realize that there is a growing trend of adding bumpers and safety pads to everything in the world, but people really can take care of themselves. I also realize that there has been this trend where FireFox devs have been taking what users actually like/want and ignoring it. Which is unfortunate.

I'm not actually going to come back here and read anything said back to me. I've already used the hidden method of fixing my problem. My reason for typing this is that I think there should be an ability to add app associations to that list.

Every time I tried to access my e-mail [or send e-mail], I received this Firefox error: "Server imap.earthlink.net has disconnected. The server may have gone down or there may be a network problem." I was able to send and receive small e-mails; but I was unable to receive somewhat larger messages, including information on how to join a very important Zoom meeting. After spending 90 minutes on the phone with Earthlink, I was finally able to access some [but not all] larger e-mails by going around Firefox and going to earthlink.webmail.com directly. But, the Earthlink tech support person was unable to detect what was wrong in Firefox. I was eventually able to join the end of the Zoom meeting. After the meeting, I then went back to Firefox and was able to get and send some messages, but I'm still getting the same error message - and I'm not sure what messages I'm missing. I sure hope someone can help!

I continually have change the default action for files with type PDF from Save File to Open in Acrobat DC. I will change it, then it works for a while, then next time I click a link on any web page to open a PDF, it tries to save the file again. Sure enough, the setting was changed back to Save File by some other program.

Isn't there a way to "lock" these preferences, or to prevent third-party apps from changing them?

This is using Windows 11 with Firefox 96.0.2 64-bit.

Thank you.
