Hello. When I open a private window and try to pin it to the taskbar, it instantly changes into the normal (non-private) Firefox icon and then only opens normal windows when I click on it. It's been like this since I reset Windows and reinstalled Firefox yesterday. I tried to reinstall it again but it still does this. Any help would be appreciated.

I have Yahoo as my home page and usually search from it starting out. I noticed, however, after the last update or two in the last week that when I hit search, it opens the search results in a new tab. It didn't use to do this, but I can't find any Firefox option to make the searches stay in the existing tab. Can anyone help with this? I don't think it's Yahoo's settings, because I'm not signed into it. It seems like the Firefox update created this new behavior.

Firefox can take screenshots of pages or screenshots of custom areas of pages.

According to the documentation, when we download the image, the filename should follow the pattern: Screen Shot yyy-mm-dd at hh.mm.ss.png. If I use the :screenshot at the console, the pattern works as documented.

But Firefox is using a different pattern when I choose Take Screenshot from the context menu. The pattern includes the page's title. Example: Screenshot 2024-04-14 at 18-35-16 General ‹ Settings ‹ Geomaster Lda — WordPress.png.

Since the page title can have non common filename characters, I have problems with such filenames. My uploads to MediaWiki fails with such filenames. I know I can report or improve MediaWiki, but my question here is quite simple.

Can I change the Firefox's default pattern for Take Screenshot's downloads?

Hi,

Some websites still managed to smuggle in popups despite all the blockings. I use as add-ons: privacy badger, no-script, ublock origin and recently tried popup blocker (strict) and even have the 'block pop-up windows' enabled. I also tried to fiddle around in ´about:config´ but nothing helps. I think it's a recent occurrence as I don't remember having this problem, let's say, a couple of months ago.

The funny thing is that this problem doesn't occur in opera-browser (in which I hardly use extensions).

The websites that this occurs are: arabicpost.net (a pop-up will occur about 10 sec after right-clicking a new tab). focus.de (a video pop-up will occur if there's a video in it). Again opera-browser blocks all of this. I expect there will be other websites to add in the future.

Please help. S.O.S. -> g.o.i.n.g..i.n.s.a.n.e!

How to block the full screen function permanently at the same time that all menus are hidden, invisible, when you press the full screen button so that the video one gives a larger image without giving full screen. I have previously found a firefox program that could do that, but unfortunately I got it deleted.

Want to use the solution on a Win 10 PC, desktop PC and a screen of 1.5 m, i.e. 2 screens in one.

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.

Hello Mozilla Support Community,

I'm an aspiring web developer diving into the world of Firefox add-ons to enhance my workflow. While I'm familiar with some popular add-ons like Firebug and Web Developer Toolbar, I'm eager to explore more tools that can streamline my development process further.

I'm particularly interested in add-ons that aid in tasks such as:

Code Editing: Are there any add-ons that offer advanced code editing features within Firefox, such as syntax highlighting, autocomplete, or code snippets management?

Page Inspection and Debugging: I'm looking for add-ons that provide robust tools for inspecting and debugging web pages. Something akin to Firefox's built-in Developer Tools but with additional features or customization options would be fantastic.

Performance Optimization: Are there any add-ons geared towards optimizing website performance, such as identifying and resolving bottlenecks, analyzing page load times, or minimizing resource usage?

Cross-Browser Testing: I'm curious about add-ons that facilitate cross-browser testing within Firefox, allowing me to preview and debug my web projects across different browsers without leaving the browser window.

Accessibility Testing: Given the importance of accessibility in web development, I'm interested in add-ons that assist in testing and ensuring web accessibility compliance.

Version Control Integration: Lastly, I'm wondering if there are any add-ons that seamlessly integrate version control systems like Git or SVN into Firefox, providing convenient access to version control features directly from the browser.

If you have any recommendations or personal favorites in these categories or any other add-ons that you find indispensable for web development, I would greatly appreciate your insights. Thank you in advance for your help and expertise!

While hovering over a Youtube video it shows the full video title as "hover text" if the tab is focused. However, if something else, even another Firefox window is focused hovering no longer shows anything. Is there some kind of setting to change that? I figured it could be browser and Youtube specific because Chrome shows it on Youtube even when not focused, but neither browser shows it on Google search for example, but I'm not sure.

Dear Anyone.

So I got ransomwared awhile back - the AZQT one - and managed to get out of it with copious use of backups! Thing IS - it's left my Outlook/Hotmail E_mail page in Russian - and I can't select 'change to English' because all the sub-menus are in Russian and I don't know what to click on!

Now when I first load up the page, I get a lovely-looking little box 'Firefox has detected this page is in Russian, would you like to translate to English' (or words to that effect, y'know.) But the box appears and disappears so fast I don't have time to click on it. I managed to get to it a couple of times and it worked perfectly. But normally it vanishes before I can get there.

How do I make the little box stick around longer so I can click on it? Or is the same option hidden in a Firefox menu somewhere - I'm not the world's greatest Internet browser geek, so please keep answers simple! - and I could click on it in a Firefox menu? Like I said - if I GET to it in time, it works like a dream. It's just GETTING to it fast enough before it vanishes that's the problem!

Just ad an 'orrible thought. I hope that if it's in a Firefox menu, that's not been turned into Russian too!

Yours respectfully

Chris.
