On Firefox 90 on Ubuntu 20.04, when a site asks for camera and microphone permissions, it’s not possible to select any device anymore. It just shows the default camera and the default microphone.

Earlier Firefox releases used to show a selection list for the camera and also another one for the microphone.

My default camera is the one built into the laptop and I would like to use an external one that has adequate picture quality.

Can you please help selecting a camera with the new Firefox?

The account clasijaz@mail.com is a valid email account. What is the problem???????? This code is new. I had no problem syncing with another new computer three months ago. It did not ask for a code last time.

As I described in my subject, I can't download ANYTHING through Firefox, unless it's in troubleshoot mode. I know that troubleshoot mode disables multiple things, including all of your themes and extensions and add-ons. For example, I can't open my own files in my AOL or Gmail email and download them. I also can't download things from my Google Drive. (Unless I'm in troubleshoot mode.)

However, thinking that it must be one of my add-ons, such as my adblock or any other one (and I mostly just have an adblock), I opened Firefox normally and completely disabled all of my add-ons, but that did not fix the problem.

I also tried downloading things while I had my Antivirus briefly paused, but that didn't work either.

The only time I can download things is in troubleshoot mode, and I don't know what's causing the problem.

Hello,

I was having trouble logging in because I thought I had disconnected my authentication app, but I eventually found it (so I am able to log in now). Before I figured this out, however, I tried to use my recovery key to log in. I found the text file that had my recovery key '[Email] Firefox Recovery Key.txt' (from 2019) and when I tried to use this, it didn't work. I noticed that the recovery page asks for a recovery 'code' instead of 'key' and when I was able to log in, it said I had never set up a Recovery Key.

Just wanted to flag the issue in case there's a reason why old Recovery Keys no longer work. It certainly could have been my error, but since I had the file, it seemed like it should've worked.

An address is a URL. A search is keywords. They are not interchangeable. How do I get Firefox to stop mixing them up?

When I want a URL, I type it in the address bar. Search has no relevance to a URL, and any intervention of Search gets in the way, and creates errors.

When I click in the search bar, it's because I want a keyword search with one of the search engines. A search is not a URL.

They are two completely different things, and treating either one as the other is error. I do not want Firefox to kidnap my cursor and teleport it to somewhere I didn't click. They are two entirely different spaces, they are not interchangeable. When I click in the search bar, it's because I want a search. Don't you dare second guess me and change my click to the address bar.

How do I turn off this stupid stupid stupid error behavior of FIrefox?

I tried this and it didn't work. In about:config • keyword.enabled and toggle it from True to False. • browser.fixup.alternate.enabled and toggle it from True to False.

Dear Firefox community

I wonder if anybody else is experiencing problems with O’Reilly recently. I think the problem started more or less 2 weeks ago. The problem is that the page is not loaded at once, but more "on demand," that is, it loads once we scroll down (fig. oreilly_firefox_01). It takes like 1s or 2s to load to load the rest of the text (fig. oreilly_firefox_02). Maybe it's related with the last Firefox update. With Chrome it works as expected.

It's not a big issue, just annoying.

Recently I upgraded my Windows 10 to Windows 11 and since doing so, I've had consistent errors while browsing the web on Firefox. Most notably the "Humm. We're having trouble finding that site." error message.

For example, when visiting, say Verizon.com, the tab will display the aforementioned error to which I press Try Again and the website loads correctly every-time. No hiccups on the refresh.

I've tried the following:

  1. I've performed a completely clean uninstall of Firefox and then reinstall
  2. Cleared all browser history/cache
  3. Removed all extensions
  4. Disabled IPv6, HTTPS Over DNS, No Proxy
  5. Ran through Firefox's troubleshooting
  6. Used Firefox Troubleshooting Mode in the Browser
  7. Tested that the problem does not happen while using Edge

I've never had a single problem on Windows 10 with Firefox. Curious if others are experiencing the same issues and if there are any fixes. Nothing else on the PC has changed.

  • Windows 11 21H2 2200.348
  • Network driver is the latest Win11 edition
  • Firefox 95

Very suddenly, I cannot buy groceries through Instacart with SNAP. Everyone wants me to use some other browser, but I really don't want to do that.

I'm using macOS 10.15.7 (Catalina) and Firefox for Mac 94.0.2 .

Whenever I go through the regular checkout process, when I click on "Place Order," I get the attached error message.

I cannot tell you how many times I've readded that number; I can't have been wrong on all of them. Yes, there's enough money on the card. I've tried (suggestion of their "support theater" people) deleting the card, logging out of Instacart, quitting Firefox, restarting Firefox (which I did twice to be sure), and adding the EBT number back in.

I even tried my sister's number, to see if it would go through. Same result.

Once I saw a brief flash of something like "Connect to EBT" before getting the error message, but only once.

I have ordered groceries through Firefox for Mac with SNAP on this computer before. Both SNAP and Instacart deny responsibility and tell me to use Safari (which I loathe).

Does anyone have any ideas? If it works in Safari, what's different about Firefox that's stopping it?

Please, grocery delivery is not a luxury for my sister and me. We literally (I was a copyeditor, so I do mean literally) cannot get to the store ourselves. I absolutely must be able to place SNAP orders via Instacart.

Thank you.
