A couple of annoying things have happened since I switched to Firefox as my main browser: • clicking on ‘mail to’ links no longer takes me to outlook, which is my main email provider • all of my PDF files stored in ‘my documents’ have been converted into Firefox web files I’d like these restored to my previous settings but can’t see how to do this!

In the age of COVID and a switch to more remote work the dependency on online meetings has increased. The company I work for uses Google Apps for Business and has been using Google Meet for a long time, and I've never had any problems with it not working. Recently though, when I join a meeting using Firefox, nobody can hear me and it appears Firefox is not able to access my microphone. Here's what I've done to test:

1. Reviewed Windows 10 settings to make sure microphone input slider is up. 2. Checked other browsers, running Google Meet using Chrome works fine. (Note: everything was working before and I attempted to use Chrome to try out changing backgrounds. It seems like this is when my problems with Firefox began) 3. I've tested my microphone using https://www.onlinemictest.com/ initially it didn't appear to work, but if I tap on my laptop screen near the microphone I see lines showing activity, but it won't pick up voice. Using this same tool in Chrome works as expected. 4. I tested using Private Mode - Same results. 5. I tried clearing the startup cache - same results. 6. I tried using Safe Mode - same results. 7. Refreshed Firefox (using Troubleshooting Information screen (Refresh Firefox...)

I'm at the end of my rope trying to figure out what's going on, and why it only appears to be Firefox that's having a problem. Other apps like Zoom, and recording video using just the webcam on the computer also works fine.

Any help in getting this figured out would be appreciated. I try not to use Chrome if I don't have to, but switching to Chrome so I can join web meetings is a real pain.

Hello.

Flash files stopped being supported on January 12th. I am a user of a site where "mini chat" uses swf files as the sound of a new message. Since firefox does not play these files, is there any option to notify (e.g. beep sound) that a site has tried to play such a file? maybe some kind of addon?

Or is there a way to make swf files work only on this page?

I've had "HTTPS-only" turned on since it became available in a recent Firefox update, but its behavior seems very odd. I frequently get the error window that says HTTPS isn't available and gives me the option to cancel or proceed to a non-secure site. But most of the time, the page that opens when I click to proceed is indeed an https page.

Why is the Firefox module seeing these pages as non-https and not just opening them as they are?

My first language is English but I live in France where, for some reason my Google search engine defaults to dot com. This means that I see results from France (good) and bucket-loads from the rest of the world which have no relevance to where I am or what I'm looking for.

I've been through the 'add more search engines' help pages and there is no answer there that I can find. I want to set my default not as google.com (as Google says I have to because I chose the English language) but google.co.uk. So, how do I do this in Firefox please?

Thanks in advance Kevin

In my notebook I have dualboot with Windows 10 and Ubuntu 20.04, and in Ubuntu Firefox notifications are integrated with the system, but in Windows 10 the notification is a ugly white rectangle. I tried to search how to change, and one site said I have to go to to Settings>System>Notifications & Actions and scroll down to Receber notificações destes remetentes and turn on Firefox, but Firefox don't appear there, as you can see in the screenshot. I'm Brazilian, so my system is in Portuguese.

I abandoned my effort to control policies using a policies.json file, since the posted instructions do not work and the moderator who was helping me didn't have any additional suggestions. So I'm now trying to do this via the local group policy editor in Windows 10 Pro with Firefox ESR 78.6.1.

I obtained the admx/adml files for that version of Firefox and placed them in the appropriate location in Windows\Policy Definitions.

Now I get the full list of polices in Firefox about:policies#documentation. There is also a Mozilla>Firefox node in the group policy editor with many options. However, AppAutoUpdate is not among them, even though it appears in the documentation. The only thing relevant at all in the GPO editor is Mozilla>Firefox>Preferences>app.update.auto, which both the GPO and about:policies says is deprecated and not supported.

So what is the actual truth? Is there, or is there not really an AppAutoUpdate policy that we can actually use to stop the endless pestering about updates in an ESR version? If there really is one, what are the actual steps to find it and make it work?

Thanks.

Is there a way to change the default keywords for the bookmarks (*), history (^) and tabs (%) search shortcuts in the address bar?

Is that possible by changing an about:config setting or using an add-on?

In my case, the default keywords are really inconvenient. With a German keyboard, the ^ character does not appear directly after pressing the key a single time. To enter the keyword for history followed by a space into the address bar, I have to press the ^ key and afterwards two times the space bar on my keyboard. Other users might not know the fastest way of doing it and require even more steps (f.e. pressing ^ twice, then deleting one ^ character and pressing the space bar once).

In general, it would be useful to be able to adjust these keywords to the users' own preferences.

OS: Catalina Model: iMac (27-inch, Late 2013) (tested on Macbook pro 2018 and 2011 too) Firefox: 84.0.2

Expected functionality: First expand the window to full screen using the green window control. The expectation is that the tab and tool bars will eventually hide, however firefox implements this - by sliding up when scrolling or just sliding up and autohiding after a short time. The tab bar should then reappear when the mouse move to the top of the screen.

Functionality Observed: Tab and tool bars never autohide. They are always there. The only way to that they hide is when a video (YouTube, Netflix) fullscreen controls are selected. Otherwise they are there on every page and that is not the expected behavior. Id like every page to autohide the top bars (similar to what all tablet/mobile device browsers do).

Settings verified: browser.fullscreen.authide= true (see image). Hide toolbars is checked (see image).

Issue I have found posted on this do not provide a concise reason as to why this behavior exists when all settings are properly set.

Hi, I use FireFox (edit - 82.0.4 from LM repos) for my browser when using Linux Mint (I use it on WIn10 as well but this query is specific to LM). I use ClamAV for virus scanning. ClamAV has found Js.Coinminer.Generic-7132237-0 in /home/username/.mozilla/firefox/puhh983l.default-release/extensions/adblockultimate@adblockultimate.net.xpi I've searched and found some mention that it might be a false positive but nothing confirming that info so far from my searching. What have I done so far: Done a fresh reinstalled of ClamAV following the ClamAV install procedure. Checked ClamAV is up to date by checking log files and latest available on the ClamAV website. Done a fresh install of FireFox Reinstalled add-ons one by one. ClamAV only finds the Coinminer once Adblock ultimate is installed/added. I'd like to keep Adblock ultimate as it does what I want it to do easily and efficiently but am happy to remove it to avoid the coinminer (if it is a problem and not a false positive) Can you help or have any advice. Thanks
