Open links in tabs instead of new windows

Hi, I have set Firefox to "Open previous windows and tabs" and to "Open links in tabs instead of new windows". When the system opens Firefox for me because I've clicked a link in a document, I would like the link to open in a new tab of that previous window which Firefox opens at startup. For many years this was its behaviour. In Chrome for example, this was not and is still not the case.

Recent upgrades to Firefox have changed its behaviour to that of Chrome. When I click a link, Firefox now opens the link in a new window and then opens the previous window on top of that. The link I wanted to follow is behind and invisible.

Could someone check and see if this is related to my system (I'm running Monterey) or if it's reproducible? I can't think of a reason for this change so it feels like a bug, either on my system or in the app itself.

Thanks for any help!

Recently, I've started noticing these quick action tiles in the URL drop-down menu (I've attached a screenshot). There's a help icon to their right, but it just goes to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/quick-actions-firefox-search-bar?as=u&utm_source=inproduct which is a 404. I found this bugzilla bug, but I'm not 100% sure on how the versioning works (even after consulting Wikipedia). The bugzilla entry mentions it's fixed on 105.0a1. I'm using 105.0b6 of the Developer Edition.

when I click the web address bar and the drop down opens up with commonly visited site a series buttons appear under it that I would love to delete from the face of the earth, as far as I can tell there doesn't appear to be any setting to turn them off and help topics are expectantly useless. For the love of god don't come and tell me you've added an idiot feature that I have no control over.

Using Firefox Developer 105.0b7 (64-bit).

I "cannot" change my password -- Firefox always report ""Incorrect Password""

1) I can log in using the previously-created pass. 2) I can verify in ""Saved Logins"" that the pass in use is the previously-created pass. 3) When attempting to change the pass at the ""Firefox Accounts"" page, I'm always getting ""Incorrect Password"" after clicking to "Save" new pass. 4) I've have tried using ""Safe Mode"" to no avail.

I'm moving from Brave to Firefox Developer, and trying to import all data from Brave... especially passwords.

When I import from Safari, Chrome, MS Edge I get a Mac dialogue box asking for my Mac password, and then all the data is imported correctly.

When I try the same with Brave, there is no Mac dialogue box, and the import process just says it was successful - but no passwords are imported at all.

I didn't find any settings in Brave saying that I had to allow password export or anything like that.

Is this a bug? and is there a workaround? (because I really don't want to have to input all those passwords for so many sites since moving to Brave!)

[See uploaded image]

I don't know what this is, what it's called, or why the someone in your UI/UX team continues to think that it's a good idea to change the keyboard navigation in the browser with all these new, special, or whatever controls that are ultimately useless.

How do I turn this off?

Hello, I'm currently running firefox developer edition and i'm facing a weird bug: When firefox is started, opening a web url from outside of firefox window does'nt work and display error message: "Firefox is already running but is not responding...".

Just recently My patient portal at Baylor Scott and White was changed. When I log into the portal everything is fine until I try to see messages from Doctor. It at this time the crash begins, sometimes the screen goes black then White and black again repeating a few times, the the computer locks up and I have no mouse or keyboard and no error option or anything.. I have to power down computer to fix where everything is ok... The tech at Baylor Scott and White said its at my end because no one else has complained and suggested I use Chrome, which I did and it works, I can retrieve messages without crashes??

PX to pixel display ratio

I use HTML files to create images for a tile based game we play. 6 months ago I was able to create a table with collapsed borders and 0px padding, margins, and borders, then draw my image with 207 x 207 JPEG TDs in multiple TR rows, then place another GIF image over all the JPEGs with transparent edges. Doing this for a table that was 6 tiles (207px) wide and 4 tiles deep, at ctrl 0, displayed a Firefox combined image that was exactly 1242px x 828px that was completely visible on 24 inch 1920 x 1080 DELL monitor. This allowed me to right click an empty space on my Firefox screen and select Take Screenshot to click on the GIF overlay image and capture that image with all of the tiles that were behind its transparent edges.

For some reason, I have no idea why, my 207px by 207px tile images are now being displayed as 282px by 282px at ctrl 0, and the overall image is now too large to fit on the screen, so taking a screenshot of the proper sized image is no longer possible. For example, at ctrl- ctrl-, the tile images are 221 pixels square, which should be 1326 pixels wide for 6 tiles, but my 1242px wide GIF file displays at 1330 pixels wide, probably due to some kind of rounding error.

I was able to use about:config and change layout.css.devPixelsPerPx from -1.0 to 0.74 and it did solve the problem. But it does so with a lot of warning for changing that default value!

So my question is simple: how does Firefox, on Windows 10, determine its screen pixel to Image px relationship? I need to know what to look at for the proper way to get my px to pixel ratio back to 1 to 1.

This is what the working image looks like while designing the center scoreboard tile https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-08-23-13-36-34-2fa67f.png

and this is what the final image looks like when you take a screenshot of the image https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-08-23-13-36-53-beae42.png

Hi all,

I have a site that I am working on for myself. Its a WordPress site using a commercial theme. The problem I have is that I am not showing as secure in the address bar when opened in Firefox. Its fine in other browsers but Firefox tells me that I have insecure content with the message " Parts of this page are not secure (such as images) " and shows the exclamation mark by the padlock in the address bar.

I have installed a plugin called SSL Insecure Content Fixer and tried various setting but without success. I have also checked my site with https://www.whynopadlock.com/ and passed with flying colours so at a bit of a loss now.

If anyone has any suggestions that would be great.

Many thanks, Chris
