This isn't as much as a question as this is an idea to consider.

What I'm about to bring up are several ideas that could make the Firefox Marketplace awesome, a real alternative to the Chrome Web Store, because frankly enough (don't get me wrong, I love Firefox and its marketplace), a lot of the apps are Firefox OS only and even those aren't too great. Here are some ideas to make it up-to-par with its competitors:

Firefox OS Background Emulation Push for PC Developers Third-Party Hosted Web App Links

FIREFOX OS BACKGROUND EMULATION:

A lot of apps are mainly, well, links to web apps that could definitely run on a PC. A lot of the other apps can be run in an emulator (which should be built-in, but in the background) that opens whenever one of these Firefox OS-specific apps is opened. The emulator could run in the background, and these apps would run in a window without any of the complexity or fake hardware buttons that the current emulators have. If this feature was standard, that would be great.

Now the Firefox Marketplace could seriously compete with the Chrome OS Web Store if it's app selection was bigger, and a great place to start is the already existing Firefox OS apps.

PUSH FOR PC DEVELOPERS:

Mobile Firefox OS apps are really being pushed. That isn't a bad thing (at all!!!) but if there was an equal amount of push for PC apps, we could see a bigger app store.

I mean, these are web apps! There is very little reason that you can develop an app for mobile and NOT tick the little box that puts the app on PCs. Easy fix. And besides, with the emulation feature there is literally no reason to NOT export to PC unless you have a grudge or something.

THIRD-PARTY HOSTED WEB APP LINKS

This one will be trickier to start off, but eventually it could be really good.

A lot of major companies have powerful online apps, but do not want to make an app for the Firefox Marketplace. Why? "Because there are not enough apps". This is circular reasoning. They don't want to make an app because other people don't want to make an app because other people..... it doesn't go anywhere.

So, if uploading nothing but a .manifest file that featured a link to an app accompanied by some basic information by a third-party developer is legally acceptable, I think it should be approved. Actually, the act of uploading nothing but a link to a site. Not like a hosted app, because that requires a specific .manifest file in the actual webpage code, and isn't featured in the actual Firefox Marketplace.

Thanks for reading so far, and I hope I've made a difference for Firefox and it's marketplace ;D !!!

I manage a website (melissachappell.com), which has pdf articles in an iframe on the html page. After the latest update (on 07/08/2015) PDF's are now downloading to my downloads folder instead of opening on the page as intended. I don't like this because 1) it clogs up my downloads folder and 2) the page looks weird now because the iframe is blank. Is there any way to change this to have the PDF open on the page instead (as it did before)?

Firefox 39 not downloading files in one particular server

Hi. This is my first question here and a weird one too. So please bear with me.

My company has many individual servers, all running the same Java program with same environment. We have a download button to download some data. However, the download link "DOES NOT POINT DIRECTLY TO THE FILE LOCATION". Instead we take the request, process it, write the data to a file in server, then read that file to the requesting browser.

In ONE of our servers, after our firefox upgraded, we are experiencing the issue that the download is not happening anymore for versions >=39. Previous versions are able to download the file correctly. Same behavior is seen in IE-11.

What's more confusing is that other servers are behaving normally even with firefox 39 and beyond. Only with this one server I am getting this issue.

Based on FF39 changelogs, can this bug-fix have some role to play in the observed behavior ? "Fix incomplete downloads being marked as complete by detecting broken HTTP1.1 transfers"

Attached are 3 images: Image 1: When download clicked, received the popup immediately though expecting some delay because of data processing. This possibly indicates that FF39 is not receiving any data from the server.

Image 2: When FF39 is not able to download the file it gives the warning shown.

Image 3: Trying to re-download the file using download manager downloads the underlying XHTML file instead which is EXPECTED BEHAVIOR because download is not a direct link to the file as mentioned before.

PS: I understand I am not giving enough information because I don't know how to reproduce this issue. Any pointer in some direction is appreciated. Thank you for your time.

I am attempting to create a customized installation package for Mozilla Firefox v40.0.3.


>> OS : Windows 7 SP1 x64 <<----

I have performed a Custom installation of the browser (unchecked 'Install Maintenance Service' check-box).

After successful installation, copied the following files to the respective directories:

1. Copied 'local-settings.js' to 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref'


Contents of this file-----------

pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");



2. Copied 'mozilla.cfg' to 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox'


Contents of this file-----------

// pref("browser.startup.homepage", http://intranet/); pref("browser.shell.checkDefaultBrowser", false); pref("app.update.auto", false); pref("app.update.enabled", false); pref("app.update.service.enabled", false); pref("browser.cache.disk.smart_size.use_old_max", false); pref("browser.search.update", false); pref("datareporting.healthreport.uploadEnabled", false); pref("signon.rememberSignons", false);


After performing these steps, when I attempt to launch firefox, it fails to launch at all. No errors are displayed. In Task manager, I noticed firefox.exe getting invoked but it exits within seconds.

What is the cause? Please help.

Hi,

I know you have all seen this question before but none of the answers I have found work for me. My site loads perfectly fine in other browser, just not Firefox.

I have a local website with a style sheet that is saved in the same folder:

I have defined the character sets in the HTML and CSS documents:

HTML = CSS = @charset "UTF-8";

I have both the latest updates for Chrome, IE and Firefox as of today.


Any help would be much appreciated.

I'm making automatic installer for special Firefox extensions. I have read couple of articles about that, but none of the described methods are not helped. What I tried to do:

- Placed .xpi file and unpacked unpacked extension directory in %FF_DIR%\browser\extensions
- Placed .xpi file and unpacked unpacked extension directory in %FF_DIR%\extensions
- Placed unpacked extension directory in another directory and added record in registry (`HKLM\Software\Mozilla\Firefox\extensions`, key is extension id and value is full path to unpacked extension)

In all ways name of unpacked extension directory was:

- Random name
- ID from install.rdf #1 (`{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}` for example)
- ID from install.rdf #2 (`prism@developer.mozilla.org` for example)  

And, as i said, all methods don't give me expectable result. Firefox don't show extensions in list and don't show any notification. How can i solve it? What actual method using in current version of FF? Target browser is Firefox 41, system - Windows 7 x64 Thanks!

I am developing a web application (Wildfly, JS, html, css & co.). I am checking that in both Chrome and Firefox, but in Firefox every time i want to refresh a page to see changes, i must clean the cache, while in Chrome i just press F5. I installed Firefox Developer Edition because of that, but the problem is also there.

Even Ctrl+Shift+R doesn't solve the problem (or not always).

I added: https://addons.mozilla.org/it/firefox/addon/empty-cache-button/ and it works great. But still, why doesn't work just F5 as it happens in Chrome? Is there an option "automatically clean cache"? Or some "Developement mode" that allows to refresh everything silently?

The biggest disappointment was when i saw that this happens also in "Firefox Developer Edition" Maybe i am doing something wrong or the option is present?

I remember some problems like that in the past, but now they happens almost on always change.

As the title says I have a problem whith my pinned tabs. Let's take facebook as an example. When I get a message from someone, the blue dot which indicates a notification appears under the favicon. The problem is that it doesn't go away even after I check everythig that could generate the notification. I don't think it is caused by specific websites since I have different tabs that i leave always pinned, and this behaviour showed up in all of them after the update to version ~47 (I can't remember the specific one).

Hi all; apologies for the long post.

All of the major browsers recently dumped applets or intend to, including Firefox. I have spent the last five years developing a ranking engine web site and software based around a 64,839 line Applet that needs to pass customised ranking criteria back to the server once the user has finished modifying the preset criteria to their needs (the ranking criteria is stored as graphs).

Web Start is simply not going to do the job and its too big a project to start from scratch and rebuild it in something else. The whole project, including test data SQL code is over 234,000 lines of code and was due to be launched in March next year. Seriously, they could not have picked a worse time to dump Applets.

The following is a bit of an overview of the engine. Please; to any Mozilla staff reading this, this engine is well worth supporting...

Even if just one browser supported Applets, I could convince people to switch browsers. This technology will change the web and computing like no other, and will attract a lot of users, so I would please ask that Mozilla consider reinstating the option of running Applets. The web site is only a product ranking engine for retail products at present, but will expand into other areas at a latter date. It can capture a knowledgeable expert's ranking knowledge, for virtually any retail product, and then make it available for anyone to use at the click of a button.

The engine is based on an abstract theory for how the human brain uses neural networks to rank things for us. The engine is capable of ranking pretty much anything the human brain can rank. Like the human brain, it is capable of ranking entities that have absolutely no attributes in common within the ranking criteria (I'm not really sure what that can be used for yet). It can also use any attribute, that the brain uses to rank things, for which we have no formal system of measurements. This is possible through the use of graphs to capture, edit and store the ranking criteria. Essentially, if an entity type has describable attributes, then it can be ranked by this engine.

If the user is always willing to accept the highest ranked entity, then it can be used to capture a large number of decision processes which use ranking of a set of options, and which do not make use of the imagination. It can then accurately emulate that decision process. This technology will allow Robotics, AI and Software Agents to make a large number of decisions the way that we do.

This theory is part of a wider theory for how the human brain generates most all emotions and feelings, including those for interactions and the Ego, using neural networks. This theory was developed over a period of 17 years. The ranking engine was merely a byproduct of this work.

This is no pie in the sky theory, the engine has been fully functional for over two years, and is currently ranking 1225 digital cameras using 89 attributes. It is only the background administration of the web site that needs finishing. I also have an Australian Provisional Patent "METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR RANKING ENTITIES - AU2016900828" (http://www.ipaustralia.com.au/applicant/wegner-ronald-robert/patents/AU2016900828/). My patent attorney firm, Spruson & Ferguson based in Sydney Australia, would never allow a hoax to tarnish their reputation.

If anyone at Mozilla is reading this, please consider keeping the option of Applets!

Kind Regards, Robbie Wegner

I have created a website using Firefox as my browser, and tested it on all platforms and using laptop, phone, ipad. I'm seeing that the logo I created and one of the images which look good on Firefox are greyscale in Chrome and Safari. All the other colours look good and I'm at a loss. If it was all of them, I could understand, but it's not. I suspect this is a common query, and I'm sorry to bother you with this because I'm going round in circles on the support forums and everywhere. Here is the URL - it's still in test but I've taken maintenance down so you can see if you use another browser. This is the first website I've built so it's not something I've come across before http://www.thenorthwestvahub.co.uk/ Have you a suggestion please? Firefox is always my browser of choice, but unfortunately others use Chrome and Safari. Many thanks!

Hello, I hope this is the right place to post this question. I apologize if it's not. Please tell me if I am posting in a wrong section.

Firefox is not displaying right fonts on a site I am working on. • I am working with files locally on my Mac so I can't provide url. • I am using @font-face rule and index page displays the right fonts that are in my folders. I am not using link to Google. • Problem is that all the other pages display only default browser fonts. But all the other CSS styling, on those pages, works just fine. • My index page is in the root folder, fonts have their own folder, and all the other pages have their own folder.

   - root folder 
                       |- index.html
                       |- styles folder - css folder, etc…
                       |- media folder - fonts folder, etc…
                       |- pages folder - about.html, page2.html, etc…

• I have added fonts in ttf, woff, woff2, eot, and svg formats. Technically, I only care about at least making ttf files work. • I am using the latest Firefox. • I cleared all of the history. • And I tried Firefox in safe mode, so far nothing works.

Does anyone have any idea what am I doing wrong? I very much appreciate your help.
