Despite what all the articles say, I much prefer reading on my desktop to my phone, so I find it peculiar that the Firefox reading list I've got going on iOS is nowhere to be found on desktop. Seems like plenty of people have asked about this in the past. Would really love this feature to be added soon!

Since updating to Firefox 93.0, I notice that downloads from certain sites are being blocked, because they are using a basic HTTP connection, requiring me to explicitly allow each download. I understand that this is a new "feature," as explained here: https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2021/10/05/firefox-93-protects-against-insecure-downloads/, however, I in no way desire this behavior. It is an asinine nuisance, and if I cannot disable it, I will have no choice but to revert to an early version of Firefox. My question, then is this: is it possible to disable this check, and simply allow all downloads? If so, how can I do that?

I've got a Macbook pro and love using the swipe gestures for productivity but sometimes it can make certain websites (e.g. Google sheets) frustrating to use.

The issue is that the swipe right feature has 2 main functions on firefox:

1. Go backwards a page 2. Scroll left on the same page

It becomes an issue when I zoom into a slide/image/etc. and I just want to scroll left but it's interpreted as going back a page instead.

It would be ideal if there was a way to prevent the 'go back' (swipe right) feature for a second, thereby using the scroll function instead... this could be done by holding cmd and swiping right to disable the back page function. There is a similar app called Forky Slide Scrolling Stopper, which prevents the 2 finger scroll up/down from changing slides - it would be good to have something like this for the 2 finger scroll left/right.

My question is - is there an add on or app that allows this feature?

I have this problem since version 92.0. I've been through all of the troubleshooting steps and they made no difference. I'm on a Mac and Safari works fine. When I open pages, it's usually using "Open link in a new tab". most of the time, the new tab is blank with the address at the top. If I click the refresh button, I get the page I was linking to. I have not seen the problem when I use "Open link in a new window".

Now, in the old Firefox, you used to be able to select "Email Link" to send a URL to someone by e-mail in your favorite e-mail client. I used to do that routinely, sending links via Thunderbird. I'm now using FF93.0, and all I see is "Share", which, when you point it to "Mail" it dumps you in Chrome. Now, in my FF prefs, I have specified Content Type->mailto->Use Thunderbird, so why it's dumping me in Chrome makes no sense.

How do I use Firefox to share a URL in Thunderbird like I used to be able to do?

This is a problem unique to Firefox. Even a page that's been supposedly formatted for printing turns out with missing text or text overlaid on other text. And it's a problem that has been occurring over many iterations of the Firefox browser.

Here's an example that prints fine in Edge and Chrome: https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/220867/falafels-with-yogurt-dill-sauce/?printview

What is the problem, and why can't/won't Firefox fix it?

This is not Privacy even if not stored on disk. This should be turned off or at least add a on off option in preferences to give users a choice. Someone could see this list on a screen when open. If you do this then why not have a tab that also shows Recent History also and keep it in Memory?

I think this is a valid Privacy concern, am sure there is some way to snapshot it from a forensic program as it is stored in memory.

Anyone else have concerns or thoughts??

       Thank you

I am experiencing two issues which are bugging me and have checked all settings to make sure they are as they should but am still experiencing issues:-

1 - Autoplay of videos does not work. I have Firefox set to autoplay any video but when I go to YouTube the video starts playing for half a second then stops and I have to click on play every time. I have tried this on other browsers and it works fine, so the issue is related to Firefox specifically.

2 - Auto open of documents - When I click on a link to open a PDF I get the pop up asking me what I want to do with it, despite clicking the box saying "Always do this action from now on" I still get that pop up every time. I have the "open in Firefox" option set in the menu but it is being ignored.

I have disabled any add-ons for Firefox and tried again but the issue still persists so is not being caused by them. Something isn't right and I've been trying to sort this myself for ages, so hopefully someone can either help or confirm there's a bug somewhere in Firefox that needs fixing. Thanks in advance.

Hi.

I attach a photo that illustrates the huge difference in the way colours are rendered by Firefox. On the left, an iPad Air 4th Gen (15.01) and on the right a MacBook Air M1 (11.6). One would question if it was the same image. If I flip to Safari on iPadOS, it renders ~the same colour as Firefox on my M1. If I then save the image to "Photos" from either Firefox on MacOS or iPadOS and Safari, I get exactly the same colour rendering for all the images saved.

So it looks like Firefox is getting it badly wrong on iPadOS (the same with iOS 15.01) when it presents its colours. It doesn't matter if I'm in Dark or Light mode. I'm using Verion 92

As a keen fan of Mozilla, I prefer using Firfox as my default browser, but if there are these colour issues I'm a bit wary of replacing Safari on my iPad!

Thanks Tom
