I do not want videos to autoplay - I prefer to select which videos I play - but having set all the parameters I can see in about:config the videos still autoplay. I use W11. The settings I have are: • media.autoplay.default = 5 [0:allow;1:blockAudible;2:Prompt;5:blockAll] • media.autoplay.blocking_policy = 2 • media.autoplay.allow-extension-background-pages = false • media.autoplay.block-event.enabled = true

Any assistance greatly appreciated

Can someone please answer how to reset firefox size after you've been using a bigger screen and go back to the laptop the top bar is lost way up and I cant catch it to move it to resize the firefox window. Using Fn and F11 to go into maximize mode doesnt help me at all cuz I end up in full screen on the FHD screen but cant grab and drag the window to resize it again - and please NO comments about using FN and F11 again. This is an issue thats been since years - cant figure out why ppl who are tryin to help think others dont know the difference between maximization and the window being bigger than the laptop screen and being lost. So FIREFOX key-shortcut for window size reset URGENT PLEASEEEE - Im having this issue couple times a week. To fix it I gotta go again to the bigger screen reduce the size of the window and then disconnect - which is soooo horrible.

I am trying to download the original version of an image, not the re-compressed webp version (Yes, I know some websites only have a webp format image, but I am specifically talking about sites where I can flat out see .jpg or .png in the URL but it's forcing a recompressed webp version on me instead, reddit itself is one of those sites that does this, I cam flat out see the url ending in .jpg or .png, and then a lot of other gibberish after which if I make any changes to breaks the image, and if I leave as-is forces a webp version. Wikia sites are another that do this.). A lot of what I Google on how to do this is not relevant anymore, telling me to modify a setting that no longer exists, add a variable to the URL that no longer works, or install a plugin that does not seem to work anymore and might be a security risk.

The one thing that seems to work is going to the image.http.accept setting and putting in "*/*". Problem is, I have no idea what exactly this is doing, and it looks like to me that I am somehow telling it just allow everything, which worries me if it can be a security risk or something. Can someone help me understand what exactly I am doing when I modify this setting like this and if it's a security risk to do so?

I'm running firefox 124.0.2 on Linux Mint and am having the most bizarre issue. I've got a logitech M560 mouse, and when I press the mouse button for Forward it functions normally. However when I press the mouse button for Back, Firefox ignores it.

I've already confirmed that the OS is registering the button click as 'Back' using Input-Remapper, and the extra mouse buttons are enabled in the Firefox configuration. I've also used the mouse on another PC with no issues so this one is kind of boggling the mind.

Hello! My name is Anya. I am desperately trying to manage my social media addiction and to help support that I am wondering if its possible to disable the privacy window. I know I can install a website blocker - which I have, but it does not apply to the private window so I have full access to social media on it, I just have to log in. I want to COMPLETELY block Facebook and Instagram off of my laptop. Is this possible? Thank you!

When I left-click on text and hold the left mouse button, then right-click, first release the right button, then the left button, a "selection mode" is activated, where the end of the selection follows the mouse pointer despite no button is held. In principle this looks like a useful feature (or it would if the scroll wheel worked in that mode, which it doesn't). But at the same time, the context menu opens when the right button is released. So we trigger two features at once, making both less useful, because they're getting in each other's way.

This frequently happens to me when double clicking on a word and right clicking to open the context menu on it. Accidental overlap of the left and right clicks triggers the selection mode.

Can this behaviour be configured (e.g. to use a custom shortcut) or, if not, be deactivated entirely?

I'm using Firefox 123.0.1 on Linux (openSUSE Tumbleweed).

I am using theme called WhiteSur to imitate Safari, as that is the browser layout I prefer. However, this doesn't change the position of the close tab button and leaves it on the right hand side. I found a way to change it, using the code .tabbrowser-tab .tab-close-button {

 margin-left: -5px !important;
 margin-right: 2.5px !important;

} Unfortunately, this doesn't change based on the size of the tab, so if I set it to a size that is good for only having 1 tab, it will look bad or be off the screen for the other amounts of tabs. Is there a way to detect the width of the tab or the amount of tabs open and dynamically set the margins based off of this? So I could set it as (width-of-tab)-x and that would always keep the close tab button in the same spot, regardless of tab size. Thanks!

How can I keep the option to quickly translate a page in the address bar without having the popup jump in my face each time I open a new tab, forcing me to click it to make it go away? This would be a nice option but an extremely distracting presentation. thanks.

For years I've been able to input a website keyword (let's say "cnn" like in an old report I ran across) and the "www." and ".com" portions would be added without my typing them. Some time ago, this started to fail. Why?

I tried about:config changes that were said to work with the old "cnn" problem report but nothing helps for me.

Also, I use the local Windows Hosts file to give my router a quick reference name to get into it. That too has worked for years but began to fail last year. Inconvenient. The best I could track this down, it has something to do with forced DNS lookups and skipping the old Hosts file. If so, any work around to get my system simplicity back?

Help is appreciated. I liked the challenge of computer geekdom 30 years ago but I'm getting too old for this, well, you know the old saying.

I've been using Chrome for a long time, and I've been slowly switching over all my bookmarks, passwords, etc to Firefox. I'm running Linux mint for context.

Every time I open Firefox, it opens the home tab, and after a second or two it opens Mozilla Rally in a new tab, and it drives me ABSOLUTELY BONKERS, because I get halfway through typing in a website, and I'm redirected to this new tab I care nothing about, and for some reason cannot get rid of it in the minimal startup settings that actually exist.

That's some straight up Microsoft Internet Explorer sh!t there, and yes that was meant as an insult.

I have not been able to find any reference or any way to make that not happen, and it is seriously making me consider abandoning Firefox entirely. Don't make me go back to Chrome.

Please help.
