Given that Firefox Developer Edition isn't typically packaged by distros, the only way to install it is manually unpacking the tarball from Mozilla to some suitable location and manually write a .desktop entry. But now that the main Firefox build is available as a Flatpak, are there any plans for publishing Developer Edition that way as well?

chrome://browser/content/places/places.xhtml

By default it opens all bookmarks. Using about:downloads is no option because of the limited functionality.

Every help is welcome!

As the subject says, my print dialog shows on the wrong monitor. Usually with other apps you can bring the program to the correct monitor and close it there then it opens there as well. I move FF around from time to time but my main monitor gets the most use. To test this weird issue, I moved FF to the second monitor and tried printing there, the dialog shows up on my main LOL. What causes the print dialog to show up on the wrong screen, or even why does it always choose another screen other than the one FF is being displayed on? Is there a setting or option to correct this? The reason this is problematic is I don't always turn on the second on, so if i want to print a receipt or something I have to turn on the second monitor(which for me takes a bit, first the main blanks out then second turns on then first "catches up"). I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

I won't check a box that opts me into observational and INTERVENTIONAL studies that I won't even be aware that I'm in since I don't look every 5 minutes at the settings and may do things like the evil sort of one fb ? did that changed your emotions.

That's a great example of why I moved to Firefox from Chrome and am wary of Facebook.

I'd be more than happy to check a box that says: "Please offer me any/all studies I may be eligible for including add'l questions to see if I'm eligible, with a reasonable stab at assent (not even informed consent). And of course whether data is anonymous (truly, as in after the study even if you wanted to you couldn't figure out which person was which), or not. Not anonymous may be fine....depending on the study. My very best, really, you're great....AND I'd be happy to discuss, advise (see below)...my 'toolbox' isn't simply biomedical. Darren


(Just me being pedantic now ignore this as you wish: And you say "study" ... I'm a researcher (sometimes)...IRB, grants, peer review, publications. Research is the "creation of generalizable knowledge." Is that what you're doing? I suspect you're doing more "quality improvement" where you figure out what works better for you...and SOMETIMES that is generalizeable knowledge (i.e., certain colors make people happy in every browser not Firefox specific), but do you publish it as peer reviewed research? Now, it's TOTALLY FINE if you don't and it's QI....but would specify that and not call it studies...call it...evaluating improvements or whatever. The use of the word 'study' and 'research' drive me nuts since when we talk to people about actual 'studies' and 'research' they conflate that with marketing evaluations of what makes us by more or which candidate we're interested in or how to sell things to us.)

Since updating to Mac OS Catalina, Firefox is displaying some text/fonts on websites as boxed question marks. I have tried some of the suggested fixes including: 1. lowering the security.sandbox.content.level to a value of 2, 1, or even 0, but no success. 2. Type about:preferences#content<enter> in the address bar. Across from fonts and colors, press the Advanced button. On the bottom, turn on Allow Web Sites To Choose Their Own. When checked - The boxed question marks appear. 3. The problem is only happening in Firefox. No problem in Safari. (see image)

When I download an html document that contains a bootstrap nav-tabs example to a file and display that file with Firefox I get the same behavior.

We have a WordPress website that has a direct menu link to a PDF file. The PDF has links at the top that transport the user to a particular section in the document. On Chrome it looks fine, but on FireFox, there are thick, ugly borders around each link. I've tried to change the border with CSS using .linkAnnotation, but it never works. I have found that for an individual browser, you can change the userContent.css, but we'd like to change the appear of the PDF for all users. How do we do this?

I've attached an image of the PDF but I've whited-out the text.

I am running Firefox v76.0.1 64bit on an iMac.

Suddenly in Gmail emails accessed by the web interface are showing no images with the broken image link, some are showing around 10% of the images and others are showing all the images. This suddenly started earlier this week.

I have tried safe mode with no plugins and still exactly as above. I have tried turning Advanced Protection off and again no change. The attached screenshot is an example of the problem.

If I access the emails using Safari then I have no issue.

I have a JVC G3 digital camera plugged into my MacBook Air via the thunderbolt port which I use when live-streaming.

When using Quicktime or Chrome, I can select the G3 camera instead of the HD FaceTime built-in camera with the pull down menu.

However in the FireFox camera menu, only the HD FaceTime camera is available so I cannot use it.

Firefox version is 76.0.1 (64 bit) Macbook is late 2016 Air running macOS Mojave 10.14.6

I don't understand why it works on some programs but not on Firefox - can anybody help please?

After a full review of all Mozilla's addon troubleshooting pages, the addons I use everyday either don't appear upon my use of a mouse right click or don't work when clicking on them in the browser's header bar, and I haven't downloaded the new Firefox version for GREAT fear of AGAIN loosing ALL of my addons for the second time. And not being able to use my lost addons have crippled my production, because their replacement have not been nearly as good.

To remove an addon was easy, but reinstalling it won't fully engage even when the page popped up and gave me the option to install it. It's just spinning.

I imagine we're not talking about a sudden incompatability without an upgrade. Your help is welcome.

I'll be browsing a website, and with no rhyme or reason Firefox (on Windows PC) will decide that this website no longer exists and is no longer available, even the page I was on 2 minutes prior is no longer available (it even tried telling me that mozilla.org no longer existed). But the same site continues to work fine on the Firefox on my Android device.

The sites eventually "come back", but it's not very productive for a site to "disappear" in the middle of something.
