Hi, I discovered that in order to achieve that, you set in about:config "permissions.fullscreen.allowed from the default false to true. The default behavior does not stop the video with a single left mouse click, but triggers full-screen. It would make sense to make "true" the default as it seems more intuitive to control both the play and full-screen in that way.

I recently experienced a 1-minute power outage, during which my PC abruptly shut down while I was working. One of the joys of living remotely. However, an unexpected event occurred, causing all my add-ons to vanish. I am very concerned, firstly because that can happen, and secondly, what happens to the data stored? Even after the PC rebooted, my Mozilla account remained logged in. I didn't need to log back in to get to this support page. The sync is on and has been completed. The most inconvenient part is that I was working on some integrations between Obsidian, Readwise, Logsec, Omnivore, and syncing accounts when the outage happened. Because of memory issues, I now need to remember which extensions I had and recently added, which is why the aforementioned apps are necessary. The add-on I am most concerned about is my password manager extension. I've made logging in feel like trying to get into a fortress, so having to go through that again is giving me anxiety. Anyone know how or why add-ons could possibly disappear like that? I'm a long-term "want to use Firefox" person, but this sort of thing really turns me off, and I hate all the other browsers because of their lack of security. I'd love to hear your thoughts on fixing this and what I can do if it happens again in the future.

Firefox doesn't work with power management. It essentially turns the screen off and then sends the laptop to sleep when watching videos (in full screen). I have tried to disable hardware acceleration, but it didn't fix my problem. I am on 124.0.1 version - flatpack version on fedora, as the actual fedora version from "discover" app center cannot play videos at all. I am running on fedora 39, kde plasma, wayland.

I keep getting this message that pops up in a private window to restart to keep using firefox. Everytime I click restart Firefox, it closes my tabs and opens them again. However, 5 minutes later the window pops up again. Even after repeated attempts of updating, even doing a full restart on the computer, Firefox continues to send this window to me. The private window in the bar says about:restartrequired.

I've tried uninstalling Firefox with a fresh install as well as doing a Refresh of Firefox. Neither seem to solve this problem.

Since yesterday, occassionally while using Facebook or Messenger, the tab crashes. Earlier today on the Messenger side, after reopening the Messenger tab after it crashes, it crashed again. It doesn't occur on other websites and the app doesn't crash, only the tab.

Using Firefox on "troubleshoot mode" doesn't have an issue when accessing when I visit those for a few minutes and with only one or two tabs open, and I'm afraid of visiting these sites for a while because it may crash again. Occurs on both Windows and Mac.

Crashed signature leads to: "js::gc::AllocSite::incTenuredCount", and I have no idea what does it mean. For my Mac the reason for the crash is "EXC_BAD_ACCESS / KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE", while for Windows, reason is "EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION_READ".

Heres from my Mac: bp-b882a473-a8a5-496f-8a14-d9d190240403

I will add additional crash IDs from my Windows. Idk what is the problem currently, is it with the add-ons installed, Facebook, or Firefox itself? The RAM is fine.

Not all animations appearing on Instagram via Firefox on older hardware.

Hi. I have two main Mac computers that I browse the web with, a 2020 iMac 27 with 6-core Intel i5 and Radeon Pro 5300 GPU. My secondary computer is an older mid-2012 MacBook Pro with dual core Intel i5 and HD Graphics 4000.

I am aware this Macbook is over a decade old now, and I plan on getting a much newer model within the next couple months. For now, I'll have to make do with this when my iMac is busy with other tasks (mostly rendering video). I have installed all the latest Mac OS updates the Macbook can support, which is Catalina, and Firefox is also the most current version 124.0.1 64-bit.

I tend to use Instagram via Firefox for the most part, and on the iMac, there are these little animations when doing things like double-clicking posts to like them, which causes a small flying heart to appear on the post for about a second. Flipping through multi-image posts is also animated when clicking the left and right buttons, resulting in a slide animation between photos. Small text pop ups also have animation as well.

However, using Firefox on my Macbook, those animations don't appear. I've enabled hardware acceleration, and the animations still don't appear. I've also whitelisted Instagram in uBlock Origin, and the result is the same.

I tested other websites that I can compare with the iMac, like Google Maps and the official Nintendo Animal Crossing website. Both sites run smoothly on my Macbook, with all animations functioning like they should, and Google Street view also being smooth with no visual glitches or other reduced functionality.

I will note the screen resolution on the Macbook is 1366 x 768 compared to the large iMac. My question is this... is Instagram disabling these UI animations on my Macbook due to it's age and/or screen size, is Firefox doing that, or is this a bug in regards to Mac OS Catalina?

These are very simple animations, so it's strange that they don't appear on my Macbook, despite it still being capable of showing web page animations with other sites. The Like animation in particular is helpful as it provides visual feedback to my preferred way of liking posts there.

I’m currently using Windows 10 Firefox v.124.0.1 and am set to auto update. For some time now I’ve been trying to make use of the option to set homepage as a shortcut folder as described: Settings/Home/Homepage and new windows where one of the options is: ‘Choose a Bookmark to be your Home Page. If you choose a folder, the Bookmarks in that folder will be opened in Tabs.’ You then need to delete the existing homepage and select the desired shortcut folder. This works but after it appears to be a static rather than dynamic selection as regardless of any changes made to the indicated folder, the homepage does not change. Am I doing something wrong or expecting too much. Thanks John

I had to delete Firefox on my iPhone because links in emails wouldn't open anymore. Yes, it was set for default.

When I re-installed it, the tabs don't close. I hit the X to make a webpage go away and open a new tab. Hit that X when I'm through. Then close an empty Firefox on my phone.

When I reopen Firefox, I get all these little miniature webpages of the tabs I closed. I don't want them. I closed them because I was through. This is wasting my time making me close them again and again ...

Please tell me how to set Firefox on my iPhone so that when I open it I get my homepage with shortcuts I have chosen and nothing else.

Thank you, Roxanne

I Use Mac OS Firefox as my primary client for Gmail, and I always compose emails in a pop-out window. Ever since Firefox 124, these pop-out windows include the tool bar and bookmarks bar, eating up a bunch of space. I do want those bars displayed on my main firefox window, I don't want them displayed on the pop-up Gmail compose windows. Is there anyway to get Firefox revert back to this old behavior?
