i have a few websites that i go to, one is for an Arma 3 server i admin on, we use it to send messages in-game.

in the message box when ever i click on it is a list of items i have typed in the past, or if i start typing it will narrow down the results.

When I upgraded to Windows 10, my default browser was reset. I've followed the simple Firefox instructions to reset my default browser to Firefox, but have been unsuccessful. That is because Firefox does not appear on the list of browser options that the Firefox instructions show will appear when I click on Microsoft Edge. Internet Explorer is there, and one other besides MS Edge, but no Firefox. How can I set Firefox as my default browser? This is getting aggravating. Thanks!

I have a basic html index page being served by Ubuntu/Apache at `https://localhost/test.html`. I have `browser.enabled.ssb` set to `true` in about config.

When I open a regular browser window (Firefox 78.0.2) I can navigate to, and load `https://localhost/test.html` no problem but when I run `firefox --profile /home/ubuntu/.mozilla/firefox/a5pwja44.default-release --ssb https://localhost/test.html` I get a connection error. (This is the same profile I'm using when I open a new browser window).

Anybody know why this doesn't work or how to fix?

Cliquez sur l'icône ci-dessous pour l'écouter via notre lecteur pop-out TuneIn In english it could be " Due to a recent chrome update, this station is not handled by this web browser"

Any help would be appreciated ! cheers.

When I zoom in (with ctrl+= for example) images are rendered with heavy interpolation / blurring. Usually I want to see individual pixels as discrete, blur-less squares.

Is there any way to change it so Firefox renders without interpolation? I am using Firefox 71.0 Operating system: Linux Mint 19.3

I was able to remove it buy downloading Malwarebytes and running it in safe mode Windows 10 desktop. Then after reboot to normal mode click reset Firefox 80. 09-06-20. had to re-add the title bar and Chrome folder in the profile to get my multi bookmarks toolbar back and tabs below search bar then since I was signed up with a Mozilla account for Firefox all the apps just loaded along with all the settings and bookmarks. I gotta hand it to ya Mozilla this is one sweet program and they have thought of everything. So don't get discouraged if you get hit sometimes because my Vipre Internet Security did not catch this since I had the check all open and closing folders Edge Protection off. Still the scan should have picked it up. It cost me $40 for a year of Malwarebytes but that's a cheep fix as far as I am concerned.

A standard behavior of any application on Ubuntu is when you mouse middle button click on any open window top title bar that application window gets lowered to underneath all other open windows ... This has worked fine on ff nightly until a few days ago ... this is even when ff setting -> Customize -> Toolbars -> Menu Bar it enabled

ff nightly 82.0a1 (2020-09-08) (64-bit)

on Ubuntu 20.04

As a long time ff user on nightly while on various releases of Ubuntu over the years this typically works OK however about once a year it stops working then somehow starts working OK

On same Ubuntu 20.04 machine all other applications are OK with this behavior
