What are the intended uses for: media.volume_scale, media.default_volume, media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled ?

I am not sure this is the right forum to be asking all of the questions below but .. I am starting here and will be guided by your feedback if only some questions can be answered here.

All my questions pertain to Firefox Nightly on Android. 101.0a1 (Build #2015874793) It is my hope that the Q&A might help other users of Firefox Nightly on Android.

  1. (generic) Where will I find discussion of or documentation (specifications, user manual, usage notes, self-documenting source code, etc.) for the various Firefox settings accessible via about:config ?
  2. (specific) What is the intended use scenario for the media.volume_scale setting?
  3. (specific) What is the intended use scenario for the media.default_volume setting?
  4. (specific) What is the intended use scenario for the media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled setting?
  5. (generic) Is it reasonable to expect that a browser be able to determine either the RMS or Peak loudness of the src for a media element and mute (i.e. set ~.volume=0) if that loudness is above some user specified level? For example:
    • Might there be metadata within the file header that describes loudness just as there is metadata that describes duration?
    • Might parsing just the first 3-5 seconds of the file be sufficiently manageable to estimate loudness without grossly impacting page load-time or grossly taxing the CPU?
    • Might the default action be to set ~.volume=0 until such time as the browser has parsed the entire src to determine actual RMS loudness .. and only then restore ~.volume to user-prescribed maximum permitted volume iff RMS loudness is below a user prescribed threshold? (the bigger the file the longer that media is muted before it can be potentially unmuted!)

Thank you, in advance, for any time you spend responding to my questions. I am especially appreciative of links that I can follow to find answers for myself rather than being spoon-fed answers on a specific case by case basis.

I originally was able to create the home page shortcut to Piped with Chrome, but the shortcut launched Chrome, even though Firefox is my default browser?

Piped [https://piped.kavin.rocks/https://pip.../|Piped]

So I deleted the shortcut. Now, Chrome no longer even offers me the option to "Add to Home Screen" from the Piped page, but it still does for other sites. Within Chrome, It now offers me the option to open the page in Firefox, even if I make Chrome the default browser.

How can I get a shortcut to Piped on my home page that will open in Firefox?

Currently using Firefox Nightly version 111.0a1 for Android now when trying to open a link in another app it always shows a popup to confirm.

This was not present in previous releases and I don't know if there is a way to prevent this popup as it makes it uncomfortable. Is there an option I may be missing to disable this feature? If not, could an option like this be introduced?

Thanks and regards

About:config simply shows me a blank screen.

I need to customize a few settings and I presently cannot. This question marks this as answered but the answer is talking about a solution to the specific reason they were trying to access about:config, not why they cannot access it. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1373286

Others say to use the nightly build, which I don't want. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1302626

What's the deal? I've spent an hour or so now looking this up and haven't found anything.

I remember sites with related terms not always being grouped up not too long ago. The change isn't bad but would like to know how to disable it. The main issue being ever since this change was implemented, it breaks some functionality. It keeps you from being able to look through the rest of your history until you delete the group. Either it prevents you from continuing to scroll down. Or when you do keep scrolling, it keeps looping the sites already shown.

I am trying to disable auto-refresh on my tabs when I minimize them, but when I type 'about: config' into the address bar, it just shows search engine results instead of opening it as an actual URL. I have already gone into settings and disabled all search suggestions, and it's still doing it anyway.

What am I supposed to be doing here? I spent tons of time in the support community looking for fixes to my problem and all I found were people telling me to use Nightly, but I don't want to give up basic capabilities like printing etc.

Thanks!

New image search. A notification keeps coming up to say it needs permissions. I have allowed all permissions in settings on the browser and in my apps settings. I downloaded the add-on 3 times & not sure what to do with the api file. It does work to search images anyway. If I go to Add-ons in the menu & tap a picture, it does search. Should I set it to URL or clipboard?

Hello,

My name is Nyayesh Abdollahi and I have a suggestion for Firefox; I've earlier been unable to access an account I created because the e-mail connected to it had been deleten.

This seems to me a proper weakness in Firefox and perhaps should be ameliorated...?

I just wanted to let you know this because I do think it's the best browser around.

If the problem has already been adressed, my apologies.

Kind regards, Nyayesh Abdollahi

Installation fails for Yomichan add-on on Nightly for Android

I'm trying to get Yomichan by FooSoft to install on Nightly for Android (v117.0a1) to no success. Here's what I've tried:

  1. 1. Add Yomichan to a custom add-on collection.
  2. 2. Go to the add-on manager and tap on install.
  3. 3. A little toast that says "Failed to install Yomichan" comes up instantly (see screenshot attached). Nothing is even downloaded.

Notes and information:

  • a. The development of Yomichan has ceased and the version on AMO is behind by 3 years (June 4, 2020).
  • b. The latest version of Yomichan (October 23, 2022) is only available as an XPI file on the add-on developer's GitHub page. Unfortunately, it is not possible to install add-ons from XPI files on Nightly for Android, so I have no idea if this version would work on Nightly for Android.
  • c. Another user (Occupied Octopus) uploaded a rebranded version of Yomichan's latest release in 'note b' called "KiYomi" to AMO. Unfortunately, installation fails on Nightly for Android too, with the same results as in the screenshot after attempting to install it.
  • d. Installation of other add-ons (e.g. uBlock Origin, SingleFile) succeeds.

I normally have Dark Mode always enabled.

This week it's constantly switching to "Follow Device Theme" which then makes it the Light theme.

Interestingly, my phone's theme is also set to Dark mode so the Follow setting doesn't appear to work.

Thanks!

Hi, I'm actually entirely sure what category my tickets belongs in so apologies if it's misclassified.

I've been having a problem recently with Firefox where mobile YouTube (m.youtube.com) keeps turning up in Simplified Chinese. I'm on a Pixel 3 and my device language and default language are both English (Australia). Whenever I can change my default language, I do it to English (Australia) or English (UK). My keyboard languages are English (Australia), Chinese (Simplified) and Russian (Russian), and although I don't think this should affect the problem, I see no other reason YouTube would show me a Chinese YouTube.

Whenever I go to the YouTube settings and change it to English (Australia), then close Firefox and reopen it to access mobile YouTube again, I am faced with the same Chinese YouTube with seemingly Chinese recommendations too.

Usually you'd think this is a problem with YouTube but the problem doesn't happen when I use mobile YouTube on Google Chrome. It's automatically in English (which one I haven't bothered to check).

A recent update (v102) to Firefox for Android has broken "search browsing history". Before, I was able to type "tw" and see a list of ~20 Twitter results from my browsing history, arranged by frequency of visit; now, it only shows one. Is this new behaviour a deliberate change (if so, it's really bad compared to the ease of usability of the feature previously - please revert it!) or a bug?
