In my web app I had a customized scrollbar. In the most recent update of fire fox it duplicates my scrollbar so I have my own customized scrollbar and next to that there is fire fox's default one. They are entirely synced and scroll together. And I do not wish to hide m own scrollbars for certain reasons. Can anyone help?

This is can be done through configuring a new profile but I can't find any implementation example on the web.

I'm trying to debug a web page written in html5 with a serverside php that emails user input to me. The changes are minor aesthetic tweaks that only take a minute to change and then test.

It took me a while to realize that Firefox is not completely clearing the cache unless I exit FF and restart. That's a lot of effort to test one change in an html file, so I would really like to completely clear the cache. Does anyone know what is being left behind and where?

CSS sourcemap: Page doesn't update after changes to scss file. Although I can confirm there's compilation of scss file into css

Hi, I'm using webpack 4.6 and Babel 7+ to compiled JS, CSS, and their sourcemaps. I can edit individual SCSS files directly in the style editor, and have verified that webpack watch triggers a compilation, so a new css file replaces the original.

I was expecting Firefox to render style changes without me having to manually reload the page (as I have been able to do in the past with tools such as grunt). But that's not the case. Styles are not automatically updated and I have to reload the page by hand. Not a big deal when it is only once change I have to do, but on my work, I have to do this dozens and dozens of times when I'm developing, so it gets a little tiring.

Any suggestions on how to trigger the 'live' updating of styles ?

Thank you!

The search boxes in the inspector window window returns no results whenever I try to search for specific key-value pairs like: role="main".

I can only get results for main or role. Is there a search string parameter/syntax reference anywhere? I've searched high and low, but articles/references found in the documentation is VERY basic.

Thanks

We have a simple HTML home page that has links to the sites we most visit. This is the default page that comes up when we start FF. For instance, the web site for CNBC financial news is coded in HTML like this:

  • <a href="http://www.cnbc.com/">CNBC</a>
  • All the web links are in lists in cells a multi-cell table. There are about 40 of these links in the home page.

    While debugging a network problem recently using wireshark, I noticed that when I opened this home page in FF, There was a storm of DNS queries for all of the web sites in the home page! None of the web links were clicked on, this happens when FF starts up and just displays the home page. The same thing is happening on Windows 7 and Linux.

    I consider this invasive and would like this activity to stop.

    Why is this happening? Does this "feature" have a name? How do I stop this from happening?

    Thanks, Ed

    I have the following Javascript code which has been working for over 10 years and still works on Chrome, but does not work on FF 73.0 on Ubuntu Linux.

    var url = "/FamilyTree/getIndivNamesXml.php"; ... code to complete url by appending values of elements from form // invoke script to obtain list of names for selection list HTTP.getXML(url, // see O'Reilly Javascript gotNames, noNames);

    // put a dummy entry at the top of the selection, otherwise // selecting the first name does not call onchange var name = '[choose an individual]'; var option = new Option(name, -1, false, false); option.innerHTML = '[choose an individual]'; select.appendChild(option);

           alert("nominalIndex.js:update: cannot find form");
    

    } // function update ```


    When I put alerts into nameOnKeyDown and update I see that nameOnKeyDown is called but update is never called.

    You can see the above code in action at https://www.jamescobban.net/FamilyTree/nominalIndex.php?name=allenby,%20a&treename=&lang=en

    This code has worked for over 10 years, and still is working today on Chrome, but the timer never pops on Firefox 73.0 on Ubuntu Linux 19.10.

    We have an application that was integrated with several other legacy applications in the organization. We started upgrading our application to HTML 5 standards to make it work with all modern browsers such as Firefox, Chrome and Edge. Now the problem is that, our application has redirect links to 3 to 5 legacy applications that were coded for IE 7 and no where in the migration path. When the users click on these links while working on our application, Firefox opens a blank page, making them as blockers for our application uplift. 1) is there a way to force a link to open in IE while the parent page is launched using Firefox ? I have seen this link : https://stackoverflow.com/questions/43615678/force-a-link-in-i-e-to-open-in-firefox , but this is for the opposite requirement...open Firefox from IE. 2) how do you run applications requiring .cab files on Firefox ? if there is an answer for this, we don't need to worry about #1.

    Thanks.

    I spent hours struggling with my css and nothing would make my page look right. Whenever I tested on iPhone and iPad sizes through Firefox's RDM, the behaviour I was getting was far from what I expected. Then it dawned on me to try it on other browsers. Shockingly, it worked as expected. On Chrome and Safari sticky bar was sticking to the bottom (on FF, it's pushed way down, so can't even be seen on the screenshot. Also, putting them side by side, it's noticeable the size difference from the FF render. I did check my zoom levels (this is actual size) and minimum font (none), so I don't think this is a local configuration issue. I love the dev tools in FF, and find them much better for handling design overall, but this issue really threw me for a loop.

    For reference, this was on FF 75.0 (64-bit) with Mozilla/5.0 (iPad; CPU OS 11_0 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/604.1.34 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/11.0 Mobile/15A5341f Safari/604.1.

    Is this a known browser issue?

    Until several weeks ago, new windows created through Javascript with window.open() worked. We could pass the new size, and other features, e.g. menubar, toolbar, etc. and they would show up. As of v.76.0 this is no longer true. The parameters are ignored. If we use no parameters, the menubar, etc. do show, but we can't control any new window features. We have not changed our programs at all, and window.open() parameters still work correctly in Chrome, Brave, Edge, etc. How do we get Firefox to recognize the window.open() parameters (again)?
