Desktop, Firefox latest build, Windows 10

This has been going on for a while. I noticed that even though I had a proper preview of the image I wanted to post on Facebook, it rendered as a coloured block, sometimes with lines, instead. This happens with both PNG (8/24) and JP(E)G. The colour of the 'block' can be different each time I try.

The image sometimes gets through if I post it in a comment but sometimes not. But in any case: the initial image usually does properly make it to Facebook. I decided to try with a different browser; same image. This worked without any issues. Does someone know what could cause this?

Hi! I have a primary computer with all bookmarks, history, extensions, etc. I've logged in to another computer and clicked to sync my information, but nothing is coming over. Now I'm worried my bookmarks, etc., have been erased, but I won't have access to my primary computer for several days. Is the sync just not working? Please help, thank you.

Hello, I just built a new PC and have a fresh install of Firefox.

As seen in the image, the default 'search' that I type into the address bar is trying to go to a webpage (the web/globe icon) I would like it to default to search, (like the magnifying glass icon), rather than having to press the down arrow to get to it.

I had this functionality on the old computer. Curious how to get it back. Thank you.

I am using the latest Firefox version 102.0 and I have igHome set as my home page. Yesterday the Google Calendar Gadget would no longer display the calendar but would display this message:

Firefox Can’t Open This Page To protect your security, accountsgooglecom will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window.

If I click on the “Open Site in New Window” button it does open the calendar. (See attached screenshot.) I have tried login out and back into igHome and my Google account but it doesn’t fix the issue. This is happening on both my laptop and desktop computers running Windows 10 Home. All Windows updates are up to date. I opened Firefox in Troubleshooting Mode and the calendar still does not show. When I use the Google Chrome browser with the same igHome home page the Calendar works fine. Is this something Firefox can fix, or do I need to contact Google?

I am a new Firefox user. From the very beginning I am having such an issue: macOS has "Now Playing" item in the top of the screen where the menu bar is located, but Firefox does not work properly with it. The only interaction is available is Play/Pause. However, Chrome and Safari work well with this menu bar item, I can both see the timeline and rewind the video. For some reason it does not work in Firefox.

I should say that the problems also occur while using the touch bar. There is also a "Now Playing" item and there is also the only interaction available.

You can see in the picture I added that the time dash does not even move while the video is playing. The problem is the same on any sources.

I am using Apple Silicon version btw.

I am using Mozilla Firefox, ver. 102.0.1, 46 bit, snap for Ubuntu 22.04. I have two issues with saving files in Mozilla.

First, when I try to save a pdf using the CTRL+S key, it open multiple (~100) instances of save dialogue box. Initially I thought my computer got freezed, since pressing the save key didn't had any effect. I tried to move it using the CTRL+SPACE key -> Move option, and then I realized there are many such save dialogue box are open. How to rectify its behavior?

Second, it downloads the file only in system created folder (e.g. ~\Download, ~\Document, ~\Pictures, etc) and not other user created folders (e.g ~\Dropbox, etc.). The dialogue box for saving file closes without giving any warning/error message. When I check the file it is not downloaded (in user created folders). Can there be any permission issue?

I have already reinstalled the Mozilla once!

Hi! I recently made the switch from Chrome to Firefox and Im liking it aside from this one thing. When Im watching a video in full screen, moving the cursor to the top doesnt pop up Macs top bar (File, Edit, ..... battery, time).

This sounds like a banality but I mainly watch videos while getting ready, working etc, and I really need to see the time! Im used to always keeping the cursor at the top to see it. I searched around in settings and forums but didnt find any fix. The only solution seems to be to not use full screen which I think we can all agree just sucks in a major way.

Im using MacOS Monterey 12.3.1 and Firefox 102.0.1. Is there a way to fix this or nah? Any info much appreciated!

Hello.

I freshly installed Windows and therefore Firefox, I backed up my Profile folder before doing so and I moved my logins.json and key4.db files to the new Profile of the fresh installatio. But my passwords don't show up in Firefox Saved Passwords, the files aren't corrupted as I can see my data when opening the logins file on Firefox, but the passwords are all encrypted. I have given up hope that firefox will recognize the passwords (I have created new profiles and moved the json and db file there multiple times, refreshed the browser, installed and older version, none of them seem to work for me). Is there any way to decrypt my passwords outside of Firefox? Or is there a fix to this problem that I am not aware of? I have searched the forums for hours, and people who decrypt the files outside of firefox seem to do it in ways that I am not capable of doing so (coding ,etc)

Would really appreciate any help as this is driving me crazy.

Whenever I press space to scroll one page down the cursor dissapears. The same thing happens when I press `. As soon as I move the mouse it reappears but this is unwanted and annoying behavior which didn't happen in the past. I'm not sure when it started happening but it hasn't been long since that. I tried restarting with all the plugins turned off but that didn't help. I'm using the latest version of FF on Win 7 x64.`

I have the option set to always ask me if I want to open a pdf with browser, acrobat, or to download. I usually select open with Acrobat and, for the last few months, I have been getting an unwanted download as well. I found in the help articles that this is now the default action. For me, it usually means that at the end of a session i have to go to my desktop (my optioned destination for downloads) and clean it up by deleting every file I have looked at.

I recommend that you make that functionality optional. I just want to view the vast majority of things I open. For the few that I might want to download after viewing them, i would prefer to take a proactive step to download them after I have reviewed them.

Or, maybe, that is the same?
