New to FireFox and have a quick question. In Safari, there is an option to have a new window or tab open to the same page you are currently in. I see in the preferences how to make a new window or tab open to a specific URL or a blank page, but I want neither. I want a new window/tab to mimic exactly what I have in the current window when I open that new tab/window. How can I do this?

Thanks!

I am having a problem with Dark Mode in Firefox, in particular Google Search Images. I am using Windows 10 version 2004 and Firefox 81.0 using Default Add-on. I have also enabled the Dark and Light Add-ons; same problem.

If I run a Google Search for <Images>, the thumbnail images may not show depending on the setting. I cannot get the thumbnails to show with a dark background. They are downloaded because if I switch to Windows App Light setting they do show. If I select one of the 'blank' images in Google Search, the image appears to the right. The problem only appears to be affecting Google Search Images. Other web sites seem ok at this stage.

The Windows App Dark/Light Mode setting has no effect on the Google Search page. It seems to be fully controlled by Firefox. I attach three images from Google Search with a summary of the Options\Colours tab for each:

Image 1. White text on black; override Always Image 2. Use System Colours; override Always Image 3. Use System Colours or not; override Never

If you need any more information, please ask.

Thanks

Even though Firefox 80 and 81 release notes doesn't say anything, many websites stated that hardware acceleration on Linux X11 was introduced in Firefox 80, but disabled by default, while it was enabled by default in Firefox 81.

This is what I see in my about:config and, honestly, it's definitely unclear (using Firefox 81, of course):

HW_COMPOSITING available by default / blocked by env: Acceleration blocked by platform OPENGL_COMPOSITING unavailable by default: Hardware compositing is disabled WEBRENDER opt-in by default: WebRender is an opt-in feature WEBRENDER_QUALIFIED available by default / denied by env: Not on allowlist WEBRENDER_COMPOSITOR disabled by default: Disabled by default WEBRENDER_ANGLE opt-in by default: WebRender ANGLE is an opt-in feature WEBRENDER_DCOMP_PRESENT opt-in by default: WebRender DirectComposition is an opt-in feature OMTP available by default WEBGPU disabled by default: Disabled by default / blocked by runtime: WebGPU can only be enabled in nightly

What should I understand from this? Sounds like it's all DISABLED on my system (Linux Mint 18.3, based on Ubuntu 16.04, Intel Haswell integrated GPU). Why!?

Also, what is the right way to enable some hardware acceleration now? OpenGL, WebRender, FFMPEG/VAAPI... it's a real mess. Until some versions ago, I simply used layers.acceleration.force-enabled=true and this enabled OpenGL hardware compositing. But what is the right way to do it now?

Why can't Firefox developers simply add an option in Preferences to enable or disable hardware acceleration!? The only current option "use hardware acceleration when available" doesn't mean anything. I have been using OpenGL hardware compositing with layers.acceleration.force-enabled=true for years with no issues at all, yet Firefox always decided that I should not use any kind of hardware acceleration on my system... Quite disappointing.

I have tried every suggestion for blocking videos from autoplaying. I have tried Firefox's suggestions, and everything I found on the web, and nothing works. Autoplay happens every time on Fox. Why can't Mozilla get me a straight answer. I cannot be the only person in the world using Firefox, latest version, who has this problem. And, by the way, the way it seems to work is if you leave the video screen visible it does not Autoplay, but as soon as you scroll down to read the article, and thus the video image scrolls up and off the screen, then it starts to play. This isn't just some fluke and I suspect there is some code in the page HTML that does this. So, how the hell do I get it to stop?

I am using Blackboard for school and everything has been working perfectly for weeks until today. When I went to my courses page only two were available. I cleared my cache and cookies, cleared browsing history with all boxes checked, refreshed Firefox 2 times and nothing has helped. If I resize the page randomly then two more courses appear, but the fifth is still missing. When I log in through Chrome or Safari everything is there normally. What else can I do to fix this? Thanks!

I was unable to enter a reference number on a government website. The error message was that I was using an incorrect format. The format was xxxx-xxxx-xxxx. I was able to entering the same number and format correctly using Microsoft Edge. I have been having intermittent problems entering secure information ever since Firefox started using 'Enhanced Tracking Protection' by default. However, in this case, switching off Enhanced Tracking Protection did not help. Does anyone have any ideas where the problem is? Thanks.
