A while ago firefox started to take over as the program for mailto:. I even tried to stop it by changing firefox mailto to use outlook. Didn't help. I don't often use mailto, but I noticed it when I started outlook it said it wasn't the default program for everything and asked if I wanted to set it. Kept happening. Eventually I looked into default options for outlook and found mailto was set to firefox.

THEN I opened a downloaded PDF from a different browser and it opened it in firefox. I have Nuance PDF. And yes, now often when I start that it tells me that it's not the default.

And yes, I have or set the program for PDFs in FF to be Nuance PDF.

Outside of stopping using firefox, how do I get it to stop inserting itself as the default program? YES, at times I set FF to the default browser; did some recent upgrade make it mean to also set it to the default for all programs, and how can I set it to the default browser (which I do for some things I want to run at times), without stealing all the progam defaults?

WIn7Pro, FF 78.0.1 (64-bit)

Tnx,

Floating Meeting Tab Stuck, Can't Detach Tabs

I'm on Windows 10. The webcam software PerfectCam causes the floating icon-based meeting to be always on top [even if you minimise Firefox] and it also stops Firefox from letting you detach tabs from the main window by dragging a tab outside of the main Firefox window.

This does not happen with other webcam software such as SnapCam or Xplit.

The only way to get out of this problem is by closing Firefox. Extensions I have: Adblock, Adblock Plus, AddToAny Share Anywhere, Checker Plus for Gmail, Duplicate Tab Closer Quick Tabs Ported Startup Apps Weather

This does not happen immediately on the 1st Google Meet meeting of a Firefox session. It happens after a few meetings.

I actually find the always-on-top floating meeting Firefox tab a huge nuisance as I don't have anywhere to place it. If I put it on the corner, it covers the minimise/restore/close buttons. I'd love to be able to turn that thing off.

PerfectCam's maker Cyberlink's Tech Support already gave me some instructions after I sent some diagnostics data from my PC. The main thing was to go to the Device Manager > Display > Intel UHD Graphics 620 > uninstall And then go to an Intel page to download a software to downloaded the latest software for this intel thing.

After doing this, for most of the day, the problem didn't happen even after several meetings. So I thought that the problem had been solved. But at the end of the day it happened again.

I tested Google Meet on Chrome with PerfectCam and the problem doesn't happen on Chrome because it doesn't have a always-on-top floating meeting tab.

I'm attaching some images with information.

Hi all, when loading a PDF the first few pages load, and then the rest only load (slowly) once you scroll/click to view them. This wasn't always the case, and started about 4 weeks ago. My internet connection is 50Mbps, and is running at full speed, and my PC has 32GB of RAM. It's not my internet or PC, as far as I can tell.

Is there a fix? Is this a known new bug? Thanks.

Firefox was working ok to browse localhost:8000 on a development machine running Django development server. However, it suddenly stops working (perhaps after a nightly update). The Django server is running fine at http://127.0.0.1:8000/ but when trying to browse http://localhost:8000/ it just shows the following page:

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-07-07-07-00-36-6e06d5.png

Other browser such as Epiphany browser are working ok. I know it´s a problem with Firefox settings because I fixed before for the previous version but unfortunately I don´t remember how I fixed it (I feel so silly now for no been taking notes). It seems that now Firefox updated automatically overnight and override the settings.

Any ideas?

Is there a way to keep the firefox process in foreground? I'd like to write a .CMD script which opens a file location where the profiles are stored (a VHD file), mount it, and then launch it with the profile stored up there, something like:

start "firefox" /W "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" "-foreground -profile ""%driveletter%\%ffprofile%"""

...but firefox always forks to background. I do not want that, as this batch script needs to close the VHD file after firefox process completes.

How do I keep the process in foreground?

I'm using Fedora 32 and I have the middle mouse button disabled in the gnome tweak tool. But for whatever reason, Firefox seems to ignore this. What I really want is for Firefox to stop closing tabs when I have the mouse cursor hovered over a tab and I touch the wrong part (the middle) of the touch pad. This is just a huge usability problem. I'm killing tabs all the time, sometimes with forms and email messages in them. Help?

Hi,

I've recently had an issue where there is a white bar on one of my other monitors when Firefox is maximised. I have reinstalled Firefox, restarted in Safe Mode, uninstalled it completely and tried a different build (I tried Nightly 80.0a1) and it has remained the same.

The issue does not occur on any other window or browser; I have tried Edge and Chrome and it doesn't occur on either of those.

Here is how it looks in person, and Here is how it looks when Firefox is minimised (The black bar is just the gap between my two monitors)

Here is how it looks in a screenshot (note the white line between the top of the Firefox window and my wallpaper)

Hello there!

I write today because I am having this problem every now and then where I try to sign into Dropbox on my Mac desktop and then when I click log in, literally nothing happens. I don't get any error message, no incorrect password message, nothing. Simply nothing happens. I've waited a couple minutes to see if it is simply a slow connection; nope. I've already contacted Dropbox support twice; the first time, the issue just went away on its own. When the issue came back today, I contacted them again and they said it is likely a problem with Firefox since everything works perfectly fine on another browser like Safari. They said to try clearing the cookie cache, which I have now done multiple times, and still nothing happens. I've even updated to the latest version that came out just the other day.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
