Summary: Opening a file from the Network Developer Tools tab will always become the foreground tab.

Details:

  • Firefox version: 77.0.1 (64-bit)
  • OS Version: 10.15.4 (19E287)

I'm using the Developer Tools Network tab, and would like to quickly view the sources of multiple files. When you right click a file's URL you can Open In New Tab, but it will not open as a background tab. No combination of keys will do it, it should just be command+click.

Reproduction:

  1. Visit any website
  2. Press ⌘⌥E to open Network tab
  3. Reload page
  4. Right click anything in the File column
  5. File opens in new active tab no matter what

Hi,

I had applied the settings to disable the new urlbar features, but as of version 77 these no longer work.

I absolutely hate this change; it does nothing useful, it interferes with viewing the page, and it very much feels to me like change for the sake of change.

If someone can pass this on to whoever makes these unilateral decisions :

Don't make changes to the user interface that are not optional. How do they not understand that changing the UI for hundreds of millions of people is not a good idea?

So my question is, how do I disable the new urlbar "features" and return to a plain static one?

This is driving me nuts.

My desired behavior is that, when I middle-mouse-click on a hyperlink, Firefox launches a new window (not a tab) with that URL.

This is how it was working before a power interruption forced my computer to restart tonight, and my desired behavior has gone away.

The middle mouse button works for other functions; and, middle-clicking on bookmarks in my bookmark bar does launch a new window with that bookmark as expected. However, middleclicking a hyperlink does nothing.

I have browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick = false and in the options menu, "open links in tabs instead of new windows" is unchecked. Additionally I have set browser.link.open_newwindow = 2.

Can anyone help me here? This is driving me slightly batty.

I have Firefox 68.9.0ers (64bit) on antiXLinux-19. My microphone seems to work. It's not muted. I can record my voice with cheese or recordmydesktop.

However, when I go to https://meet.jit.si/ or https://www.onlinemictest.com/ I get the error that the microphone cannot be found. That means I do not even get the prompt to allow to use my microphone. In other words, MediaDevice.getUserMedia() throws NotFoundError.

With https://meet.jit.si/ I do get prompt for video, and video is working just fine.

I have the same problem with Firefox 76.0.1 (64bit).

Hello to all, I work with Firefox 75.0 (64-bits) and I keep it always updated. My telecomprovider offers me regularly the invoice in pdf-format. When I download it, the filename is changed into 8 characters, not being a sensible or readable name (ie "7fH5Rsd3.pdf"). When I asked the the provider to change this, it was clear it already is. Other customers working with IE or Chrome etc. don't have this problem. It was suggested this could be Firefox itself. The strange thing is this happens only with this provider and apparantly only with me. Everywhere else pdf's or any other file downloads just fine with their respective names. So, what could be the cause? One obscure setting in Firefox? Or should I look elsewhere? BTW: this is happening with all previous versions of Firefox, but I don't know when it started.

This is not a practical question (I'm sorry). I'd just like to understand.

A few years ago, it was necessary to install a plugin in order to playback a video (for instance the VLC-web-plugin). Nowadays, plugins are not necessary. You can just assign an application such as VLC player to a specific file type (In Firefox -> Options -> General -> Applications you can choose which file type is opened with which application). But whats the technical difference between VLC installed on operating system level and VLC as a web-plugin of Firefox? Both are external programs (locally installed) started from within the browser.

I know, that it is the goal of web2.0 to get rid of the plugins, as they are security risks and not user-friendly. However, what is the difference if I can assign an external program to render the file? Is it maybe, that only the plugins such as flash and shockwave can change the html-code on the client side and make the website interactive (and more insecure)?

In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.

I have a website, a typical three column design, with NAV, MAIN and ASIDE elements. A reader view option appears in Firefox, but ironically, only the ads in my ASIDE element show up when I click it.

The MAIN content uses SUMMARY/DETAILS to group things. Personally, I would think this combination would scream reader view content, yet MAIN is ignored entirely. It has some links, but so does my ASIDE (advert) content.

My ads are simple blurbs and links, no pictures, for my own ebooks, and are not served by a third party, so I can see how they could get picked up and I'm fine with that. What puzzles me is why the MAIN content is being ignored.

The site in question is: https://waxphilosophic.sdf.org/erotica/ It is marginally safe for work provided you do not click any of the links. No explicit images.

As a test, I even tried changing the SUMMARY/DETAIL of my "What's New" section to ARTICLE followed by an H2 heading. No change in behavior. https://waxphilosophic.sdf.org/erotica/test.html

The HTML passes the W3 validator. I searched Firefox Help / Stack Exchange. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

It's been 3 days since I can no longer play any video since Firefox Developer Edition. I added absolutely nothing and it happened suddenly. When I play a video, I hear the sound but the video loads endlessly. Same with the default HTML reader in Firefox. I tried to go to preferences and uncheck the graphics acceleration, to refresh Firefox, to reinstall it but nothing works! Even in private browsing without any extension, it does not work! I tried from another browser but it works without problems.

Thanks for your help.

since update I can't open you tube videos, site is working & can search get previews but when click to open it don't play only try to load & keeps spinning circle on black background. Cleared cache & cookies, deleted temp files, refresh Firefox but no help. Not using any add-on other than anti virus (updated), no plug-in used. No issue with other sites only concern is you tube video not playing. However, in private window video is playing without any problem. Other browser working fine, facing this issue after latest update - 77.0.1 (64-bit). No issue before update.

Hello,

My scrolling experience is not as smooth as before on Firefox on Windows 10.

Previously had a perfect smooth scrolling capability, but now the scroll is more laggy. I don't have the issue with Microsoft Edge : completely smooth. I'm using a logitech mouse M390 with smooth scroll feature enabled.

I suspect something has changed in latest release of Firefox on Windows which impact the scrolling experience. Anyone has noticed the same behavior ?

Just reinstalled my laptop from scratch : same issue.

Thanks for your feedback ! Have a pleasant day !
