i've tried toggling media.hardwaremediakeys off and pressing the media keys to no avail, they don't seem to have any effect when it's enabled or disabled. the keys work on other applications like VLC media player, though! and I can see that the media is being detected from firefox, too, as it appears in media player widgets i have on my plasma desktop. it seems to be only the physical keys that aren't working, because i can press buttons on the widgets to control media playing in firefox.

I had a personal certificate installed in Firefox and it was working well. It expired, so I got a new one from the same provider. Both appear in Firefox under "Privacy & Security" -> Certificates -> View Certificates... The previous one is not valid any more, and every time I try to access some page with a certificate, it uses the old one. So I tried to delete the old one. Nothing has worked so far. Doing the straightforward way of selecting it in the Certificate Manager and deleting it makes the certificate disappear from the manager menu, but if I enter the certificate manager again, it is there again. I tried to delete both certificates, same issue, both reaper in the manager. I tried to delete them, close firefox, delete cert9.db, cert8.db and key4.db and nothing. Only thing left is delete my current firefox profile and start again... Any other idea or something that I might delete before to solve this?

I'm developing a PHP Symfony based website powered by nginx-full 1.18.0-6ubuntu14.4, one of the functions is to allow people to download a PDF invoice.

When it fails Firefox shows an alert "Downloading (Failed) The browser application closed unexpectedly."

On my linux desktop; when I use Chromium 114.0.5735.198 this functions works 100% of the time. when I use Firefox 114.0.2 (64-bit) the PDF download only works ONCE after that the download never completes and I'm left with a partial/corrupted 75.7KiB file named filename.Br-neZWO.pdf.part etc.

I have discovered that if I clear the firefox cache I can perform one successful download again. or I can restart Nginx and again Firefox will perform one successful download again.

I've tried altering many Nginx settings, cache, gzip, sendfile etc with no effect. It might be Nginx related but it does not effect Chrome at all which is why I've started this ticket.

Any help in debugging this would be greatly appreciated.

I use multiple Firefox profiles. I would like an EASY way to see the name of the Firefox profile somewhere on the screen. The attached image shows a theme I created which shows the name of the profile on the menu bar. I forgot exactly how I did it, but it involved typing this in a Word document, taking a screenshot and turning it into a jpeg, crop the image, upload it as a theme, then test it. Repeated several times until I got it to work.

I don't need or want fancy graphics here. I just need the name of the Firefox profile to appear somewhere in the window. In my fantasy world, there would be an option to include this name in the window Title bar.

Why is there not a simple means to take a link and pin it as a tile on my home page? I've expanded the number of rows displayed which as an odd history of my browsing, yet the latest links I've visited are not there - meaning the link to the location I would like to pin. Seriously, the entries in the rows (other than previously pinned links) is a hodgepodge. It might be useful if there was some evident logic to the items included. It is disappointing the number of times this question has been posed and the "answer" is to display more rows. Similarly disappointing - an old knowledge base article that says to click the 3 dot icon next to address bar for Firefox on android - would have been handy had such a control appeared in the latest version of Firefox I'm running on my Mac.

Hail all:

Now, I have 2 Google accounts: My private one, and a Corporate Account, used for work. I always signed out of my normal window from the active account to the Corporate Account and vice versa, depending on which I needed to check. A common occurrence for many people.

But I noticed long ago, that in Private Window ... I seem to be signed out, opening Google in it. I use Private Window to avoid unnecessary clutter from sites dropping their stuff on my Temp folder. I hate clutter ... severe Asperger's.

I was thinking ... if I keep my private Google Mail on the prime non-Private window, can I sign in while this is open (and stays open) into my Corporate account in my Private Window?

If so, this would save me quite a bit of hassle, having to log out several times a day from my main, private account/mail and into the Corporate account mail, and when done vice versa to me private account mail.

Thank you.

We use Microsoft MDT for computer deployment. We have been installing the Standard version of Firefox for a long time with no problem. Recently we started using AD GPO Templates to configure firefox. To be able to configure certain settings you need to be running the ESR version. I downloaded the more recent ESR version: 102.12.0esr.msi file.

When deploying machine MDT to install Mozilla firefox I keep getting this error: Application Mozilla Firefox ESR returned an unexpected return code: 1618

This is the only application having issues and this issue only came up since I change the installation file to the ESR version.

This is the install command being used in MDT: msiexec /i "Firefoxesr.msi" /qn /norestart

I am posting here and not with MDT support, as this only started happening when I changed the installation file to the ESR version. Has anybody else had a problem deploying ESR version through MDT? Any help on how to fix?

I have Windows 11, Google is my nominated browser and my antivirus program is the same as when it was working OK.etc?

Non GoodleAds links, seem to work fine

As I don't know the exact date accessing the links/suggestions stopped working, I have no idea as to whether any Windows update has caused the issue with Firefox?

I can find my way round a computer, but I am not computer technically minded.

Any help would be appreciated as I am disabled and bedridden, so the internet is my key to the world.

When using Noto Sans Egyptian Hieroglyphics font and writing-mode: vertical-lr; the characters appear shifted up by ~10%, thus appearing partially outside their parent element. All hieroglyphics do this (here using (U+13000)), but only with Noto font.

Tested on versions 114.0.2 and 79.0esr, on different machines, new installs, old installs, even the mobile version. Chromium-based browsers don't have the issue. Images show character inside a div (with borders), the same character highlighted, and Chrome screenshot for comparison. TO REPRODUCE just import and set Noto Sans Egyptian Hieroglyphics and writing-mode: vertical-lr/vertical-rl/tb/tb-rl. A bordered div around the characters might be useful.

On Google Docs, the very useful shortcut "Alt+/" for executing menu actions by name exists, similar M-x in Emacs or Ctrl+Shift+A in PyCharm or Ctrl+Shift+P in VS Code.

On a German keyboard, there is no "/" key. In Chrome the hotkey "Alt+#" works instead. In Firefox, it does not.

This hotkey is particularly important, because it gives quick access to menu actions, that have no hotkey assigned, or for which the hotkey does not work on the current layout.

Is there something I can do to make it work?

Note. Based on what I know, I cannot tell if this is an issue with Firefox not sending the Alt+# key correctly, a special feature of Chrome that isn't present in Firefox, or a cross-browser compatibility issue of Google Docs, that should be blamed on Google Docs and not Firefox.

Firefox 114.0.2 (64-bit), running on Open Suse 15.3, 64 bit.
