Is there a way to keep the firefox process in foreground? I'd like to write a .CMD script which opens a file location where the profiles are stored (a VHD file), mount it, and then launch it with the profile stored up there, something like:

start "firefox" /W "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" "-foreground -profile ""%driveletter%\%ffprofile%"""

...but firefox always forks to background. I do not want that, as this batch script needs to close the VHD file after firefox process completes.

How do I keep the process in foreground?

I'm using Fedora 32 and I have the middle mouse button disabled in the gnome tweak tool. But for whatever reason, Firefox seems to ignore this. What I really want is for Firefox to stop closing tabs when I have the mouse cursor hovered over a tab and I touch the wrong part (the middle) of the touch pad. This is just a huge usability problem. I'm killing tabs all the time, sometimes with forms and email messages in them. Help?

Hi,

I've recently had an issue where there is a white bar on one of my other monitors when Firefox is maximised. I have reinstalled Firefox, restarted in Safe Mode, uninstalled it completely and tried a different build (I tried Nightly 80.0a1) and it has remained the same.

The issue does not occur on any other window or browser; I have tried Edge and Chrome and it doesn't occur on either of those.

Here is how it looks in person, and Here is how it looks when Firefox is minimised (The black bar is just the gap between my two monitors)

Here is how it looks in a screenshot (note the white line between the top of the Firefox window and my wallpaper)

When I try to open a local file using file:///Users/myuser/Documents/... , I get "Access to the file was denied". I'm on macOS 10.15.5. GetInfo on the file shows that I have read and write access. Firefox version is 77.0.1. I can't recall whether I gave Firefox permission to access my Documents folder when I first ran it on macOS 10.15. If I didn't, I don't know how to now give it access.

I use roboform and, I guess Firefox, puts the roboform toolbar at the bottom of the screen - frequently there is no option to scroll the screen up and I cannot read what is on the bottom of the screen unless I disable the roboform toolbar, read the line or two I am missing and then reenable the roboform toolbar - not a huge deal but sort of a pain in the neck - any way around that? Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello there!

I write today because I am having this problem every now and then where I try to sign into Dropbox on my Mac desktop and then when I click log in, literally nothing happens. I don't get any error message, no incorrect password message, nothing. Simply nothing happens. I've waited a couple minutes to see if it is simply a slow connection; nope. I've already contacted Dropbox support twice; the first time, the issue just went away on its own. When the issue came back today, I contacted them again and they said it is likely a problem with Firefox since everything works perfectly fine on another browser like Safari. They said to try clearing the cookie cache, which I have now done multiple times, and still nothing happens. I've even updated to the latest version that came out just the other day.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

When I open anything in a new window for Office 365, I get a blank rendering of the content, which I obviously can't use.

This is frustrating, because anytime that I want to pop and email out of Outlook online to focus on later, I can't. Also, if I want to reply to a calendar invite, I can't because outlook pops up a new window that wont render. I really want to keep using firefox because of your mission and privacy... but I may have to move to chrome for this because most of my work is done in outlook online.

Recently Firefox has been asking me for my CAC pin when it starts up. The way I remember it working is it would ask me for the pin only if I was going to a site that needed the credentials.

It's slightly annoying that it asks every time I open firefox as I only need the CAC for work related stuff. Is there a setting or something to disable this? I can't seem to find anything that works.

For the last week or so I've been having an intermittent problem when I log into my AMEX screen. The saved password does not always show up. I would normally left click the password field and the password would show, however for the last week or so I'm having to right click to get the "fill password" prompt. I clean cookies and cache regularly and I even deleted the saved AMEX cookie(s) and resaved them again. Sometimes it works as it should other times it does not as described above. I've not seen this problem with other web sites. The usually left click to populate the password field. No problems with the user name field. That populates automatically. I look forward to anyone's comments. Thanks
