Hi,

So far I was using Brave on all my devices, but recently I tried Firefox and I really like Firefox sync which encrypts e2e my bookmarks and visited websites between all my devices,

There's one thing on Firefox desktop which doesn't work the same way as in Brave, on MacOS in Brave when I was zooming a page a clickable link on a page is in a different position than a link itself,

I especially can see it when zoomed the actual clickable area of a link is above a text, then menu appears below the point I clicked it

Comparing to Brave when zooming both areas are not synced when zooming

So far I tried with support from here to set apz.allow_zooming to true, it helped with smoother zooming, but that issue described above came up

thanks

hi

using Firefox 76.0.1 Mac (Mojave 10.14.6) iTunes 12.9.5.5

whenever i set the sound to play to my Denon receiver via Airplay, iTunes will randomly open up (usually when a new audio stream is opened). then, it seems to force play whatever was last queued.

if my music is on an external disk, iTunes will repeatedly bug that it cannot find the queued track. (end up having to force quit iTunes but issue returns.)

when i try to replicate the issue in Safari 13.1, iTunes never opens or annoys.

After switching Catalina to dark mode several parts of FF's UI seem to be broken. It seems like the browser has problems applying the correct colors to the elements, which most of the time results in poor contrast between background and text. I've noticed these problems on window titles, dialogs, tooltips and lists. Regarding the latter, the problem seems to be corrected as soon as the element is on focus, and reverts to the wrong colors when focus is lost.

Interim solution to at least improve readability is to refresh FF while on light mode, and then switch the OS back to dark mode. After this, change FF to dark mode. End result is not ideal as FF's chrome becomes dark but affected elements remain light.

I would like to print cooking recepies from the ESSEN und TRINKEN which I can show on my screen of my dell xps15 using the hp cl 281fdw printer. When I start the printing, there is just a message "peparing print" but nothing happens even after 15 minutes. On the other side using google the print is no problem at all.

I am running CentOS 7 with dark theme, and when opening forms in firefox, the text box background and the letters inside them are both colored black making it impossible to write any thing inside the text box.

Though the problem is not with every website, only a few and definitely when I when filling Credit/Debit card details for online payment. I am also proving a screen shot from opensourceforu.com website, which is their subscription form, which I cannot fill because everything in the text bos is dark. The subscription page url is "https://subscribe.efyindia.com/electronicsforu/subscription/giftsOSFY.asp"

So, what can be done, to either change the color of the background or of the text to solve this problem.

At least as recently as Developer Edition 77.0b5. Neither the keyboard shortcut nor the UI "x" button closes the mode. This is developer edition 77.0b5 on MacOS 10.14.6. For a handful of beta versions it seems inconsistent (sometimes worked sometimes didn't work) but now it seems like this happens every time. I'm not sure when I first noticed the issue.

My system auto-loads a custom keyboard map (via Xmodmap or xkbcomp) on login. As long as the cursor does not enter a password field on a page displayed in FF, the key map remains functional until I logout.

After a recent FF update, whenever the cursor does enter a password field in FF, the keyboard map is blown away (returns to standard qwerty). This creates an incredibly annoying workflow: Enter password >> Halt >> Manually reload keymap >> Resume

No other browser or program does this so I'm sure it's a FF problem. I've already started migrating all password-entry sites to Chrome, but this is a workaround. How to fix? .. (FF 76.0, Ubuntu 18.04.4)

When I click Maximize on Firefox when it's in my main monitor (My middle of 4), the top border of the window goes into the second monitor above my main monitor, cutting off the bottom 5-10 pixels of any program I put there. It doesn't block the task bar, but any normal program like a browser window or music playing app gets cut off at the bottom. I'm not sure how to fix this. All monitors are at their native 1080p settings. Further, when I fullscreen a YouTube video in the main monitor window, the border goes away and no longer cuts off the bottom of the second monitor.

I'd provide a screenshot, but it doesn't translate well in picture without the physical monitor borders being there. Any help would be great, thanks

I have a Firefox account but whenever I try to login with Firefox Send it just keeps telling me 'Something went wrong', which gives me no idea what I can do to get things right. I have tried deleting my account and creating a new one, but the same thing still happens. I was keen to be able to use Firefox Send and get the extra flexibility offered by signing in, but so far I can only use it with the more limited default options.

After logging into my corporate Email account, there's functionality to be able to Proxy into other accounts/resources that you have access to. When you click on the Proxy function, it pops up with a window with a list of items you have access to. When you click on the link for any of these objects, it's supposed to then take you into that account/resource. However, the initial login screen just pops up again and when you re-enter the credentials, it just displays the original home page when I logged into my account. Should be displaying the folder list and such of the account/resource I'm proxying into immediately when clicking it in the list from the first pop up window.

Works fine on same computer in Chrome and Edge. Have tested site on 2 other systems (one Windows and one MacOS) and Firefox works fine on both of them. This used to work fine on this PC. Tried uninstalling, rebooting, and then re-installing Firefox, but same thing is happening after refreshing it.
