So I'm using Firefox Browser Developer edition.

Ever since it updated to version 80.0b1 (64-bit), the dialog kind of pop-ups or tooltips or however they're called, are not showing properly, on sites like Facebook and other forums I use.

As you can see in the image, if you're typing on the text field, when you click the Emote / Emoji button, the pop-up window should be shown right below the text field, however ever since the update, they appear at the top of the page, making it impossible to use if the post I'm commenting on is deeper in the page.

It's really annoying, and that's just an example, but there are many other dialog kind of windows that are behaving similarly.

Deactivating add-ons didn't help.

This wasn't a problem before the update. Is this gonna get fixed? What is affecting its proper behavior? I'd appreciate any help.

Ok. So Im on Arch Linux. Tried downgrading 78, works correctly. I have firefox dev edition ver 80 and the left channel is about 64x quiter than right. Does any one have similar problem or knows how to fix it? Firefox problem - confirmed (ALSA, pulse with or without jack aren't the problem there) It's not a preference, setting, addon - confirmed. (started browser with brand new browser profile) Isn't update problem - disconfirmed (It did break after update. Downgrading and faking profile(browser version) worked fine.)

any help, or even a way to find what and where it is caused would be helpful. I did look into a shit ton of setting and debug menus, to find that everything is in norm.

(pls ignore these extensions, i will do cleanup soon and they aren't a problem here anyways)

For a few months I have found that iI cannot download files from the internet via Firefox. I have a window 10 computer and MS Edge works. I don't like Edge though so I am loooking for a solution that will allow me to keep my good old Firefox. Currently I still use Firefox as my default browser and when I need to download files I copy the URL to Edge and download the file. Can someone help me? I am a decades long Firefox user and this has never happened before now. Thank you. David Wilds Patton

Hello, I've noticed that in the very latest versions CTRL+F5 is much less efficient.

I'm using Developer Edition, 80.0b5. When I press CTRL+F5 websites very often don't reload css.

I can check this by opening the source code and opening the css file, it still shows the old version. If I press CTRL+F5 directly inside the css file, then it updates, but still the page itself won't load the updated version right away.

If I use a private window, I see all updates immediately.

Sometimes after hitting CTRL+F5 many times it will finally update.

This never happened before, is this a bug, does anybody else experience this, is there a fix?

Thanks.

Title sums it up pretty well, audio on YouTube temporarily pauses for a second or two when loading a new page like gmail or troubleshooting information. Strangely it only happens when I load up gmail but I discovered when going into troubleshooting that it did it there too. Now, when I load the pages that stop the music a second or third time after closing out that tab, it seems to be random on whether it does or does not do it.

I have the following config options set: browser.download.lastDir C:\Users\aj_ch\Desktop browser.download.lastDir.savePerSite false

Two days ago when I tried to "save image as" while in a Firefox tab it defaulted to C:\Users\aj_ch\Desktop. That's great, as that IS the default I want. It no longer does that. I don't know what changed. It now defaults to "This PC" and I have to change the folder by selecting C:\Users\aj_ch\Desktop from the drop down list of folders. This has happened over and over and I don't know what is controlling this. In the past something would happen to change it back to my desktop. How do I permanently change "Save Image As" default folder to my desktop while other file downloads go to my "Downloads directory?"

After update to Firefox Developer Edition 81.0b2 (64-bit) an issue arises where the browser appears frozen or stalled and requires a reload of page when the above setting is true after printing. This was not the case prior to the update. Currently this is not apparent in Standard Firefox 80.0 (64-bit) with the above setting true.

This is a bad thing for kiosks. I guess this is a bug.

ff 81.0b5, last updated 03 sep 20. problem: after 9 reliable years, Canon ImageClass MF3240 printer suddenly started printing ALL blank pages when printing from FF. printer knows how many pages to print, just they are all blank. printer runs *normally* off Tbird, Notepad, Adobe Acrobat, etc., and also from another browser (Opera). yesterday i noticed for the first time that when i call for a print of a web page (FF), i get a really weird looking Print Preview page that i have never seen before. after choosing which pages i want to print (Custom), i click print and it spends a long time sending the print job to printer. then i get all blank pages. sometimes the Preview page on the display goes blank, too. sometimes i get a popup error message 'there was an error in printing' OWTTE. the directions in FF Help for printing are obviously written for the Print preview Page i WAS seeing before yesterday 03 Sep 20. they do NOT reflect the choices shown on the new, strange-looking Print Preview.

what i'v done so far re-start FF re-start FF in Safe re-start computer read Troubleshooting Info in about:support https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-printing-problems-firefox -completed steps 1-9 "reset FF printer setting" completed steps 1-4 haven't yet had the nerve to "Reset ALL FF printer settings" (too scared to mess with the prefs.js file, so far)

The world is not-so-slowly getting undermined by sophisticated technical attacks on our understanding of reality (pretty much any topic - take politics as an example). One of the newer technology is the ability to create, through sophisticated digital editing tools that utilize artificial intelligence, videos that simulate public figures doing or saying whatever the author wishes. There are DeepFake pornographic movies with popular actors and politicians. They run the gamut of ones imagination. Without specific tools to detect and block such products, we're all just sitting ducks in a rising tide of disinformation.

I would like to see a tool embedded in Firefox that detects and notifies the user/viewer of deepfake graphics: photo or video images.

There are of course issues. Performance is certainly one. This might be mitigated by having images buffered in the cloud where they could be analyzed with high performance hardware - then they could be downloaded to our smartphones and other devices. People with high end hardware could do this locally as an option.

I could go on, but I think I've summarized the need.

Here's a tool that Microsoft just released: https://techcrunch.com/2020/09/02/microsoft-launches-a-deepfake-detector-tool-ahead-of-us-election/
