My previous avatar was transparent and looked good on both dark and light browser themes, but I've made a change, uploaded my new avatar on the Firefox Account page and... transparent parts of the picture have become gray, and now they look very ugly on light themes in the browser (or on Firefox/Mozilla pages). But I can't even turn transparent parts into white because it still looks awful with dark browser theme. Is it a bug, or is it an intended change?

Hi. I am in Mac Big Sur and Firefox 108. I tend to keep a lot of windows open and navigate among them using the "Window" pulldown menu at the top between "Tools" and "Help". It used to be that the latest window more or less stayed at the bottom and the others stayed in order so they were easy to find quickly. A recent upgrade made it so the windows are now alphabetized and constantly shuffling. Since they are alphabetized by the name in the page title, this often offers no clue as to what it is--like it might be alphabetized under like cart or home page or main or something general like that. Also, if you have different tabs in a window, that window might jump from the top to the middle if a different tab is last looked at. Bottom line: it is very difficult and non-intuitive to find a page when you have a lot of windows open--but it used to be easy. Is there a way to order the wondows the way you want them or go back to the chronological order of before? Seems like there must be a setting somewhere. Thanks so much for any help.

When I try to google some absolute file path (e.g. /etc/fstab) in the address bar, instead of googling, it just opens the file from my local filesystem (as file:///etc/fstab)

I know that I can use search keywords or quote file paths, but even so, I think that users hardly ever use browsers to open local files by absolute url. So this UX totally disappoints me because I need to keep this in my mind every time I want to google file or I lose my mental concentration and then I need to change the focus from solving my issue here and now to fixing this misbehavior

Can I somehow fix this behavior with about:config?

Firefox won't reload tab when NoScripts running. This didn't happen until I went to version 11.4.18 of NoScripts and Version 111.0 of Firefox (both at same time). All 8 tabs load when I initially start FF 111.0. All tabs reload with no problems when I initially start or restart FF with Noscripts active. It is only after FF been running for an hour or so that tabs stop reloading. I do have another addon running called tab reloader. Addon tab reloader and the FF reload icon both stop working after FF runs for awhile. You will see the web page name in bottom left corner of screen and an hour class on tab. Stop NoScripts, the hour class goes away and all tabs reload, both with the FF tab reload icon and the tab reloader addon.

I thought it might be the tab reloader addon, so I set 8 tabs to reload every 10 seconds for awhile, just a couple minutes. NoScripts was running. This didn't cause a problem, everything was reloading. So I set tab reloader back to reload 8 tabs every hour, No scripts still active.

Come back in a little over an hour and the FF tab reload isn't working as described earlier. Stop NoScripts and tabs finish reloading.

Now is this a Noscript 11.4.18 or FF 111.0 issue, I did both at same time. Prior to that I was on FF 110.0.1. Currently running Windows 10 64 bit, haven't done the March update as nothing much there. All was fine until FF and NoScript update. All is fine until FF runs for awhile. For now I just turned NoScripts off.

The Firefox built-in Picture-In-Picture works great and has great pictures, much better than Chrome addon PIPs. I noticed today it has gone through an update and the first difference I noticed is the "Back to tab" button has moved from bottom center to top left. As I said, the PIP of Firefox has a great design and features, but is missing one feature that would make it perfect. Can you please add a RED PROGRESS BAR at the bottom of the PIP box. For example, there is an "Enhancer for YouTube" addon PIP (not a regular PIP, but other type of PIP that pops up when scrolling down to comments section) which has that and it's very useful (please see attachment). And if that feature is added, the ideal and logical design would be to show the "red progress bar" while hovering over the PIP box, not an always-showing feature, just like a YouTube video red progress bar works.

Thank you, Arthur

I've just discovered, that by typing text into urlbar and then clicking enter while holding SHIFT or ALT leads to a different behavior by opening tab in new window or new tab respectively.

But I have custom layout with caps+space acting as enter via xkb 8-level mapping, and that enter always opens new tabs. I suspect what is happening is that firefox thinks that I have alt down when the keyboard state is in third level. But I don't really use those modifiers so is it possible to just disable this behavior and open everything in same tab?

In this latest update (Firefox 111.0 for windows) the notifications are different and compared to the previous versions. I preferred Firefox over Chromium browsers because of the fact that previous firefox notifications were simple, instant and multiple notifications from the same source could stack one over the other. It's important for my work. I'm obliged to revert back the previous persion due to this change, the notifications now show up as windows toast in the 111 version, and don't stack one over the other.

I've added example of previous notifications and the current one. 2 notifications at a time but they aren't stacking in the new version.

Yesterday when Firefox 111.0 64 bit was installed, updated the unified extension button shows up and it cannot be made to not appear or hidden. I even tried to about:config and change the extensions.unifiedExtensions.enabled from true to false and restarted Firefox yet the extensions button still appears. On older foxfire versions could get rid of it by doing the above and it worked but this new version 111.0 64bit I cannot get rig of the extensions button icon that appears on the end of the tool bar. Please fix it so I don`t have to see this button in the Firefox toolbar at the end of it. I even had a computer online tech try and he says you have it fixed so it cannot be removed. I see others have complained about not being able to remove the button from the tool bar also..

I need to Firefox to behave like SPIN Safe Browser, aka removing all kind of potentially unsafe material. Since Spin Safe Browser is built-in with NSFW filtering but it's only available for Android/iPhone, and no, emulating Android or iOS is NOT an option. None of the current desktop browsers met the criteria for me to be safe enough to block NSFW (porn) content on default settings, only SPIN Safe Browser can do this and it's not available for PC/Windows, or Linux for that matter, so my best bet is to configure Firefox as much as possible so it can block as much unsafe content as possible but there are two or three problems I am facing right now which aren't exactly easy to fix:

1. Troubleshoot Mode DISABLES all addons, meaning that if I restart Firefox on this mode, I will be able to search and view for NSFW material. There could be a relatively easy way to fix this by building Firefox from source without this specific option. If this is possible then all I need are to instructions on how to build it without Troubleshooting Mode. Doing this step is critical as Troubleshoot Mode is more or less the equivalent of "Turn the filter off, I want to watch porn", as it disables every customization made to enforce web filtering. See image 1.

2. The addons themselves can be removed, either by manually disabling or uninstalling them. This is a huge problem because once this is done, Firefox no longer is capable of filtering unsafe content by itself. I need that these addons cannot be removed, or as a workaround, add as many layers of difficulty to prevent this from happening or making it as difficult as possible so the user simply gives up because it's too complicated. Or, building Firefox from source with these addons by default would solve this issue. You don't have to install ALL the addons for this step, just a few of them will do the work. See image 2.

3. Additionally, if there could be a way to permanently enable DoH and set a specific DNS by default and prevent it from being disabled or changed to something else. For example: https://family.adguard-dns.com/dns-query could potentially help me achieve the result I want. See image 3.

Please note that SPIN Safe Browser always blocks NSFW content by default and it's impossible to search this type of content with this browser, there is no way to turn off the filter and this is exactly how I want Firefox to behave. I have read something about converting APKs into PWAs but I'm not really versed in that, but if you know a way to "port" SPIN Safe Browser to PC/Windows/Linux please let me know, or if you have any other suggestion than can help me make Firefox behave more like SPIN Safe Browser on it's default settings I would really appreciate that.

In recent times, it seems Youtube videos only buffer about a minute or two of video; that's it. I have a decent internet connection, so it's usually not a problem. But if there's any kind of disruption - say, for example, if I run the microwave for more than a minute - it causes the video to stop.

It seems we used to be able to buffer entire Youtube videos at one time. But now, for some reason, I can't get more than about a minute or so.

There are plenty of old articles about certain settings that might work. However, none of their recommendations work. The main one is setting media.cache_readahead_limit and media.cache_resume_threshold to high values. This doesn't work anymore.

Another suggestion was to set media.mediasource.enable to false. This increases the buffered amount, but has the side effect of SEVERELY limiting video quality, and can cause playback problems.

I just don't understand why Youtube won't buffer more than about a minute worth of video. I don't even need it to load complete videos; I just want a little bit more than 1 minute worth of buffer.
