Firefox-Version: 74.0 (64-Bit) Operating system: Xubuntu 18.04

I want to participate in meetings with Teamviewer or in https://meet.jit.si. I want to enable my mike in the browser for that purpose.

I read the hint

https://support.mozilla.org/en…ng-microphone-permissions

but that does not work for me: After entering the URL into the dialogue,e.g.. https://meet.jit.si I am supposed to press ENTER. But then nothing happens!

I expect the entered URL to be added to the list below after pressing ENTER (this list was empty before in my case).

When I want to participate in such a meeting, I get a question whether I would allow the microphone to be used. Even if I allow it, meet.jit.si tells me that it could not use the microphone for an unspecified reason.

In the browser when trying to use such a connection, to the left of the URL there is a closed lock symbol and a red microphone symbol.

I have checked if the microphone works: I can record something with it using Audacity and if I activate the Pulseaudio-volume control I see a level indicator which reacts on sound heard by my microphone.

What must I do to enable the microphone for TeamViewer or other net meetings?

Hi,

I am trying to configure PKI based authentication and encryption system in my organization using Hardware token. I was able to install my hardware token feitan ePass2003 Auto in privacy->security device. I am able to see my certificates under view certificate after entering my password for private key. After research on internet, came to know that Applet based client authentication is obsolete and hence i have configure my token in Firefox. The next step i.e Authentication page is where i have got stuck up. Can any one please give details guide on how to use cryptoken operation(challenge & signing) and access to token in JavaScript at client side login page. I could not get hold of any library of java script for access to token through Firefox. Any guidance is highly appreciated.

Thanks

After a long browser session, sometimes the keyboard shortcut Alt-D stops working, but other keyboard shortcuts like Alt-H work fine.

The shortcuts F6 and Ctrl-L still work.

A restart of the browser fixes it though, so I haven't explored further.

It's not easy to replicate consistently; Firefox doesn't show it when first opened, but after prolonged use it may occur and then stay that way until restarted.

I am using Firefox version 76.0.1 (64-bit) on Ubuntu 18.04. I am not using the [German version of Firefox].

I know I can make this go away with a restart, I'm just curious if there's some troubleshooting steps I could take to identify the cause.

Array.length remains the same even though array has element index greater than length set: Bug or feature?

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!

Recently i got a problem related to push notifications on Firefox, I've already subscribed (or allowed) to notification permission on some websites like Twitter, Gmail but I don't receive any notification when I closed their tabs . It's working fine if the tab of particular website is loaded on Firefox but once I closed it I don't get any notification especially from those websites on which I allowed the notification permission.

Some people suggested me to use chromium or other browsers to get this behavior but I don't want to replace Firefox with any other browser because their dev tools are better than what others are suggesting to me.

Firefox version: 76.0.1 OS: Manjaro with I3gaps window manager Script (or app) for display the notification : Dunst

I am using Firefox on a Fedora 32 linux system. I have two "printers" defined, one configured for duplex printing, the other not. I would like Firefox to enable or disable duplex printing according to which printer I use and not have to change the setting in Firefox every time I want to print with a different setting than the last time I printed. Is there any way to do this?

Browsing history weirdly limited view

From a non-programmer who used Chrome a lot until recently:

If I hit Cntrl-H like I would in Chrome, I get a frustratingly limited view. Why does it not show timestamps? So I spend time searching and find out about the Library window, and Control+Shift+H. Okay, so that's at least making it possible to see timestamps. Typing this right now, I don't remember if I had to manually add a column to see timestamps, but if I did Jesus Christ. I nearly installed some other software (MZHistoryView) before finding out about Control+Shift+H, just to see timestamps.

Also, every time I press the awkward Control+Shift+H hotkey, it resets the view to "Today". I don't know why it wouldn't default to "Just keep scrolling for as many days as you want". If I search for a specific site immediately after opening the window, then it includes entries for more days than just today. But before searching, it cuts off my view to just today. What's the point of that? Who would want such a restriction as the default view?

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 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.

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 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 ?
