I have a laptop with two cameras and 3 sound inputs. On websites that use webrtc (eg. meet.google.com), a permission dialog pops up to allow or deny access to a microphone and camera.

Those permission dialogs have a drop-down, but the drop-down has only one choice. Rebooting re-organizes which camera or microphone is in the drop-down list. Probably because of USB wakeup.

So to choose which camera to use I have to reboot and hope the right one is in the drop-down.

I managed to compile firefox on linux ubuntu but did not generate the executables for windows.

Then I started configuring on windows, but I believe the problem is with the Visual Studio version, I installed the latest version of VS 2019, then I found that it doesn't work, because VS 2019 now requires the "C" compiler version 10, and mozbuild uses version 9.

I ended up discovering in other documentation that I have to use visual studio 2017, but I installed VS 2017 version 15.9.29, however it gives error in the compilation.

I found in other documentation that I must use VS 2017 version 15.8, but this version is not available for download.

Can anyone help me what I have to do to be able to compile it?

Problem One: 1Password extension not working for me. I installed Firefox and made it my primary browser. Extensions have been a disaster for me. First I tried adding the 1 Password extension. I did this because when I tried opening a page from 1 Password uninstalled on the browser, it didn't l as it should (has always done so with Safari). I had to open 1Password separately, and copy the information, which is tedious.

So I installed the 1Password Extension on Firefox. It didn't work unless I'd opened the desktop version of 1Password, it still didn't open and fill.

So I removed the extension. I then decided to give it another try. The extension shows up on Firefox. But now it has a little lock on the icon. The problem is that clicking on the icon doesn't open anything! I've rebooted the computer, and only reinstalled the 1Password extension. The same problem occurs, then, without clicking on the problematic icon, I reboot the computer again. It hasn't helped.

PROBLEM TWO: I'm having an additional problem with extensions. When I click on the extension for Pocket (for instance), the program opens, but fails to recognize that I have a paid subscription, asking me to upgrade. This is true for other sites I have subscriptions to, limiting me using the "free" version, which limits what I can open as well as what I can save.

It sounds unbelievable, but that's what's happened to me. I'm using enhanced tracking protection for all sites. Macbook Pro ; Catalina OS 10.15.7 (19H15) - most recent version Max OS

I appreciate any help you can give me. This is way over my head! I've tried everything I can think of, except for uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox.

I am using Firefox Nightly on Linux.

I have two M171 Logitech mouses. Their scroll wheel works fine everywhere except firefox (chrome works fine, for instance). In firefox, I need to press the scroll wheel down, keep it down and scroll. Then, it scrolls. But just freely scrolling with the mouse does not scroll the page, it does nothing. This happens in every web page. Interestingly, if I use the scroll wheel in the popup of an addon (for instance in the tab listing of a group in Simple Tab Groups), it works there. But not in web pages or the sidebar. I have also tried entering safe mode, but it didn't help.

Did anyone have this issue too?

Hi, after a recent update to Firefox, Ctrl-E now automatically tries to search from Google instead of simply highlighting the address bar. This is really annoying as every time I want to quickly open another site in a tab, I have to press Ctrl-E, then backspace, and then start typing the address. Is there any way to revert this behavior to how it worked before https://i.imgur.com/nxavBpC.png Enclosed image shows the Google search bar as it opens on pressing Ctrl-E. https://i.imgur.com/rehzhj9.png This is how it used to look when I pressed the shortcut.

When I updated to the latest version of Firefox (83.0), I noticed that the process searching with the address bar had changed a bit. Before the update I would type text into the address bar, click one of the search buttons, and then see the results right away. Now I have to type text into the address bar, click one of the search buttons, and then press <ENTER>. How can I get the previous behavior back? Those buttons along the address bar drop-down are called one-click search buttons for a reason.

Hello,

Some "Smooth Scroll" settings changed in FF 82, and my scrolling now is not as "smooth" as it used to be. (I still have FF 52 installed and it's much better).

I've modified "general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS" and "general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS" to 400 and 200 respectively (default in older versions), but the scrolling is still jumpy.

I've also tried playing with "mousewheel.acceleration.factor" and "mousewheel.acceleration.start" but it didn't help.

I'd appreciate any help.

I am inquiring what can be done to overcome this freeze on functionality. If the only folder that still functions is "Important", sending and receiving messages becomes largely impossible, or means sending extra messages, phone calls, or whatever else can be invented. Is this a general problem, I wonder? Any proposed swolutions will be much appreciated.

VERSION: OS: Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS OS type: 64-bit Firefox: 83.0 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical -1.0

ISSUE: All of the WebAssembly / Wasm error messages I receive in the FF console give a generic response instead of specific messages (like previous versions offered).

I recorded some of the previous error messages in content I was creating for others which explained how to resolve those error messages.

This is an example of what I used to see in the console.

BEFORE:


Firefox 70.0.1 CompileError: wasm validation error: at offset 824: popping value from empty stack

Firefox 80 Uncaught (in promise) CompileError: wasm validation error: at offset 47: initializer expression must reference a global immutable import

Firefox 80 Uncaught (in promise) LinkError: imported Memory with incompatible size


Now, when I do the same things that would trigger those errors, the message I get is vague and not specific at all.

AFTER:


Firefox 83 Uncaught (in promise) Error: undefined


This makes it much more difficult to debug my Wasm in the browser and halts me from sharing my findings with others.

I did look in the about:config settings (in case they added a flag) and tried switching

javascript.options.wasm.verbose from ‘false’ to ‘true’

but that was not a solution.

Setting that flag to true only gave more references to the phases of the compilations but did not give me back the error reporting I used to see for Wasm.

I need to know how to enable the actual error messages again for Wasm or understand why the helpful messages were changed into a generic message. I’m hoping that it just an accident they are not displaying.
