I have Firefox 68.9.0ers (64bit) on antiXLinux-19. My microphone seems to work. It's not muted. I can record my voice with cheese or recordmydesktop.

However, when I go to https://meet.jit.si/ or https://www.onlinemictest.com/ I get the error that the microphone cannot be found. That means I do not even get the prompt to allow to use my microphone. In other words, MediaDevice.getUserMedia() throws NotFoundError.

With https://meet.jit.si/ I do get prompt for video, and video is working just fine.

I have the same problem with Firefox 76.0.1 (64bit).

I've synced about five desktops and many devices to firefox. I just added ff to a new ubuntu 20.04 desktop. It says that it's synced but by bookmarks don't come onboard. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling and signing out and back in again. Nothing helps. I am bewildered.

I am unable to connect to the following URL https://lakmshaegov01.msha.gov/UserManagement/ChangePassword.aspx. All other browsers seem to work.

I ran an SSL Labs test and it confirms that all tested versions of Firefox fail. I would like to know if anyone can spot something that might allow me to connect by temporarily relaxing the security checks in Firefox for this site.

Window position is shifted after maximize then unmaximize only when touching top edge of desktop

The position of the Firefox window is not restored correctly after clicking maximize then unmaximize (aka restore).

This is not a new problem. I think has always occurred on this machine (about a year old, Linux, Mint 19, Cinnamon).

It only happens if the window is touching the top edge (or corner) of the desktop. The unmaximized window is shifted down and to the right of the original position.

The window features (buttons, menus, etc) seem to return to their original positions, but the displayed window is shifted. For example, if I try to click the maximize button again, the mouse pointer needs to be above and left of the visible button.

I have turned off Linux desktop features, including window tiling and snapping, edge resistance, and some others, but I see no change. I also tried the monitor resolution and different desktop themes.

If this is not a bug, I am hoping I can disable something so that the window returns to its original position after it is unmaximized. For example, the height of the top border decreases when the window is maximized and increases when unmaximized, so if this is causing the issue, I am happy to disable it.

In the attached images, the top right of the image is the top right of the desktop. The first image shows Firefox in the top right corner before maximizing the window, and the second image shows the shifted position after unmaximizing the window. The expected behavior is for the window to return to the original position as shown in the first image.

Thanks for any help.

Hello.

I use 76.0.1 (64-bit) on Xubuntu 20.04 and same thing happens on every computer. After clean system shutdown or restart, Firefox keeps restoring tabs I used. This never happens if I close Firefox first. Also this never happens when I close and reopen firefox in the same session. I tried everything: - obvious "Restore previous session" restore in options - about:config turning various options: browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash browser.sessionstore.restore_tabs_lazily browser.sessionstore.resuming_after_os_restart browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand privacy.clearOnShutdown.sessions - i even created "user.json" with restore line as someone suggested None of these measures helped. I thought that It may be connected to XFCE session store somehow, so I went through disabling that too - no change. No other program happens to do the same. After reboot, when someone starts Firefox, all my tabs from previous session are reopened instantly. This happens on my both Xubuntu workstations, but never happens on my Windows computers. Please help.

I just finished installing Ubuntu 20.04. When I started Firefox for the first time, it told me I was using an 'out of date' version and advised me to update. I clicked on OK to do the update and thought it strange when Firefox started that it didn't have my home page. I immediately went to check the settings (now Preferences) and saw that the Home page was gone. I suspected that something had been done with my Firefox settings and checked my Bookmarks only to find them all gone. I don't believe that Firefox development would be so crass / careless as to delete my Bookmarks in this fashion. How can I retrieve them ?

On many websites lots of emoticons are shown in black and white, others in colour.

Supplemental Images all appear coloured, on Emoticons only 20% are coloured. This is what appears in Firefox Debugging tools:

Fonts Used DejaVu Sans

                        DejaVu Sans Bold Oblique 
                        Noto Color Emoji
                        Noto Color Emoji
The same page is shown with coloured emoticons in Google Chrome. Additionally, same emoticons are shown in colour when used in Mozilla Thunderbird. 

How can I set emoji in colour for Firefox?

I placed this issue in a different forum as well: https://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-software-2/firefox-emoji-are-black-and-white-4175676403/

I have two bookmarks tagged with `tools` and `music`. When I write `tools music` in the browser bar, 4 Google search results appear, followed by one bookmark, the other is not shown at all.

Is there a way to specifically search by tags? Ideally I would like to have both bookmarks appear in front of my suggestions.

thank you.

Guten Morgen,

meine Passwörter sind plötzlich weg, ich möchte keinen Brauser der die Passwörter vergisst. Warum passiert dies immer wieder?  

Es sollte eine sehr einfache Rückhohkung geben und nicht so ein umständliches Suchen nach den vorhandenen Passwörtern und der Rückholung!!!

Ich habe ein umfangreiche Internetseite von über 30 Domain etc. wie soll ich da die ganzen

Passwörter merken!!!

Es ist ein Unding, wenn Firefox plötzlich die Passwörter nicht anzeigt, so ist dies eine Stundenlange Arbeit!!!

Ich bin sehr unzufrieden mit Firefox

I don't really know if this is a bug, or a feature of Firefox's JavaScript core engine. Say I have an array:

var array = [];

I set the length of the array to a very large number:

array.length = 155555555;

This now turns the variable array into an array with 155555555 blank slots. If I then do:

array[502039410402] = 5; // Notice that 502039410402 > the previously set 155555555 for length

array.length remains at 155555555, but the actual array is appended with a sudden index 502039410402 (i.e., index 155555553, 155555554, and then suddenly index 502039410402; see screenshot), with that element containing 5. Is this a bug, or an intended feature?

I would appreciate it if anyone could let me know.

Thanks!
