Hello,

I want to disable media controls overlay without disabling media keys. I wandered in config but couldn't prevail with said subject. Its a nice feature unless I have to stop a quite few times then its just a blockage for my much needed viewspace.

Thank you.

Hi there - Every website seems to come up in English, ie Firefox seems to be translating other languages automatically. (My version is Firefox for Mac 123.01 64-bit.) I am wondering how I can prevent automatic translation of websites. I have had a look in preferences etc, but I do not see anything there to prevent automatic translation. Any help gratefully received! Many thanks :-)

Hi I recently was hacked unfortunately due to a stupid screw up involving a person who had hacked a friend's account and had me download some malware disguised as a "game he worked on" and managed to get all my passwords stored in Firefox (spent 9 hours straight changing all 200 of them and wiping the laptop). I believe I am misinterpreting some things on how secure the storage of passwords are for Firefox as I thought using the "Primary Password" function would encrypt everything properly. The hacker proved he had them unencrypted sending some examples to me to flaunt.

Was he able to attain access to the passwords due to me already having firefox open when I was compromised (even if the primary password is asked before entering each password?) Or is there some issue with firefox not storing them properly? Or is there some other less know issue with windows or edge or something "stealing" the passwords and storing them in an unencrypted file without me knowing?

This whole thing makes me feel less trustful of firefox to say the least and while the hack itself was my fault I just want to know if there was something else I could have done other than using keepass or some other password manager to exclusively store passwords (which is what I am going to do now and probably should have been doing)

TLDR - Primary password did not stop hacker from seeing passwords - Any clarification on whether this was my fault in trusting it for such things or if there is an actual issue with firefox's approach

Thanks for any help or clarification.

I've just recently switched over to Firefox with Manifest V4's blocking of ad blockers, and made an account here to sync between devices. I somehow mistyped my age during the account creation, though, and put in "13" instead of what I meant to. Will this affect any of my searching, and if so, is there a way to change it?

Is there a setting to avoid firefox swapping to new tabs, when ctrl-clicking search results in address bar?

Sometimes I want to search on multiple things through the address bar, but usually I search on google instead because every time I ctrl-click to open the searches, firefox automatically switches to that tab which means I have to swap back to the other tab, every time I open a new tab through the address bar.

It's only a problem in the search bar. Bookmarks and links on webpages open in new tabs, without swapping to those tabs.

Hi all, I've been having this issue for a while. I am unable to view streams on YouTube or Twitch (Twitch will show streams as offline, whereas YouTube will not even show streams), and I have encountered a new issue where YouTube allows only 360p on videos. I have used the HTML5 Video Capability Test and seem to have an issue in that department (images attached). Even in troubleshooting mode, the issue persists. Any help is appreciated.

I've been unable to click through links in Thunderbird. It appears to be because Firefox refuses to be my default browser. When it asked whether I wanted it to be my default browser I answered yes, but then got a blue message saying I should go to settings/default apps. It has never done this before. I can't use Win 10 Settings because it doesn't do anything because it has been corrupted by a power cut. But this has not been a problem before because Firefox has always made itself the defealt browser when requested. I have tried doing it via the menue but I get the same message. So it appears, either Firefox has changed, or Windows 10, preventing from Firefox doing it itself. I haven't used any other browser. Edge was not set up. Any suggestions?

To export my bookmarks => Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks > Import and Backup > Export Bookmarks => results in bookmarks.HTML.

Unfortunately that HTML does not include the "folders" in the bookmarks. For example I keep the forum folders (C# Corner folder, Mozilla folder, Microsoft Office folder, etc.) separate from other folders.

How do I a bookmark export that includes folders?

I'm using Kubuntu which uses the Dolphin file manager as default. When I download a file and use the download status icon at top right to check on a downloaded file "Show in folder" it comes up in Thunar.

A minor thing and it is not stopping me from doing the intended action, but the change throws me even so given I rarely use Thunar. I'm not sure it even gets installed with Kubuntu, but it has some special tools Dolphin does not have so I put it on my machine.

Any way to make Firefox show the location of the downloaded file using Dolphin? Didn't find anything where I looked using about:config
