When I right click on an image in Firefox, and choose the "Copy Image" option, it never works. In fact, it hasn't worked in years for me, and that's on numerous PCs, with Windows 7 and Windows 10. I'm doing this so I can paste images into Photoshop. It looks like, instead of copying the image itself, it's just copying the image file, but this means I can't paste it into Photoshop.

Hi,

I'm looking for a plugin or website that is able to convert voice to text capability on Firefox. For Chrome there are many solutions (VoiceNote II, Voice Recognition, Dictanote). And I need to use it on firefox.

In firefox, as I think, permissions settings/UI haven't yet been sorted out however, so permission can't be granted to use it by the user, so it can't be used.

Thank you!

When I upgrade Firefox versions, I create a new profile folder to test the newer version. When I upgraded to V101, I found Google Maps worked very well using the standard config file the install created, especially in relation to panning in Street View. then when I miggrated over my old config file from V88 Google Maps became very sluggish on panning. Clearly some config entries need tweaking. How do I know which class of config entries are used by Google Maps? I dont want to compare every single line of the config files..

Its about time Firefox came with a flyout when you hover over each config entry to tell us what it does?

Hello,

Before the release of Firefox 99, the drag and drop function of e-mail using OWA (Microsoft Outlook) stopped working. In the last version of 99, it started working again (and I was very happy). My browser just updated to 100 and it stopped working again (and, of course, Firefox recommends not downgrading).

This is getting very frustrating, as I use Firefox at work and it is actually a lot of time wasted, going in and attaching files without drag and drop. I am on the verge of abandoning Firefox as my browser, since these features work in both Safari and Chrome. However, I do like the usability and security of Firefox, so I am hoping you can fix this very soon.

Recently i found that the memory usage can be very large when watching live-stream,tried many ways to fix but none of them was useful. Then i found the new function of "minimize memory usage" button,it is useful,but not so convenient.Can you please add a new way to use this function? Like: set a number of memory usage(for example 256000KB),when reach this number trigger the "minimize memory usage".Then it will be like "auto minimize memory usage". Or,you can just set an UI button on the toolbar to trigger "minimize memory usage".

Please check my screenshot Pic1:It's the live-stream tab,memory usage 1800+MB Pic2:But it seems not so large in "about:performance"

I have already selected firefox developer edition as the default browser from the Eclipse Enterprise Edition. However, when the browser is open, it cannot open the url generated from eclipse. Suppose, I hit the command 'run as server' on a jsp file. If developer edition is already open, the file does not get open on a new tab. However, if the browser is closed, then it opens with the jsp file.

I have tested that with google chrome and firefox normal edition and in there, it works absolutely fine. But I don't know what went wrong in the developer edition.


I have uploaded two pictures for the convenience.

Hi,

I hope you are well.

I have set up 11 custom devices that max the min and max sizes of bootstrap grid system (xs-min-360w, xs-max-575, etc) to aid me with checking my website on various screen sizes. Is there anyway to export this list or better still to synch them with my Firefox account so I don't lose these settings?

I am using Firefox Developer Edition (101.0b6 (64-bit)) on Ubuntu 20.04.

Many thanks Kaz

I'm not able to get hardware accelerated video decode working on Firefox developer 101.0b7 on Arch linux X11 with VA-API. This is verified by a lack of Video activity in intel-gpu-top

There is also no obvious error message. On youtube videos I sometimes see

but on Big Buck Bunny from https://test-videos.co.uk/vids/bigbuckbunny/mp4/h264/1080/Big_Buck_Bunny_1080_10s_1MB.mp4 I don't get that output and everything looks normal:

but the video decode in intel-gpu-top shows 0%.

VA-API is confirmed to be working in mpv, if I play that same big buck bunny video in mpv I see 10-20% video decode usage.

I am wondering if it is at all possible to adjust the settings when pulling a tab into a new window. For example, if I am running Firefox fullscreen I would like the tab that I pull to be opened in windowed form. I noticed that this is typically the case when using Chromium-based browsers, but noticed that on Firefox it stays in the format as the previous window. (if already windowed the pulled tab will also be windowed) is there a way to ensure that the pulled tab will always be windowed?

if there's not already an option to autohide the bookmarks toolbar (like the address bar and tabs when in F11 mode [fullscreen])

so like, on default the bookmark toolbar wouldn't show, but when I move my mouse into the specified area it appears (with the same animation as f11 mode)

 thank you,

let me know if i can already do that and if I'm just dumb.

 just to be clear, I want the tabs and url/address bar and tabs to always be there.

Actually might be cool to have options to autohide the tab bar too (separately).

 thanks again,
