Hello, I have noticed that the slowest way to download anything on my PC is through a browser, what I mean by that is when I download a game for example through steam I the download speed is between 200 to 350 Mb/s (25 to 44 MB/s) but when I am downloading anything using the browser the maximum I get is 20 Mb/s (2.5 MB/s), so I was wondering, is there any way to make it faster and just not less than 10% of my internet speed?

Hello, I had a PDF document I was working on and saved/downloaded but not all entered fields saved so I thought I would take a screenshot. I used CTRL+Shift+S and the screen darkened for the prompt "drag or click on the page to select a region. Press ESC to cancel" except now I cannot do anything. I cannot drag and click, and every small movement of my mouse brings up an error "Woah! Firefox Screenshots went haywire. Were not sure what just happened. Care to try again or take a shot of a different page? ReferenceError: ui is not defined". Pressing the escape button on the screenshot prompt does nothing, as well as pressing the esc key on the keyboard. If I use CTRL+Shift+S again it'll bring up a second screenshot prompt that works and takes a screenshot of the greyed out page. I would not like to just close firefox as it is a lot of work that I am going to lose. Thank you for your help!

I've got W11 set to automatically hide the Taskbar. Like everybody else it's to reclaim more screen.

In Firefox, I like having the menu bar, tabs, URL bar, and bookmark toolbar available. Problem is, by the time you add the typical website's menu structure, I've lost 25-35% of my whole screen!

Is there a Firefox setting to give me Taskbar's autohide convenience?

Capturing Firefox with OBS - Tab freeze when on other virtual desk, a way to prevent this?

Hello,

For teaching purpose, I need to do interactive presentations with both a regular slide presentation (using pympress), interactive activities through either Miro or Mentimeter both being in Firefox and a few other things (depending on what I teach at the time).

In order to mix those windows on the screen (and also because sometimes those are streamed), I capture all of them in OBS and have a bunch of scenes which organize and size everything depending on what I currently focusing on.

Each of those windows are on a different virtual desk to make it manageable, and thus I am not always on the virtual desk where Firefox is, for example when I am explaining something with slides, I am on the virtual desk with the presenter console. However I often still need to have the content of Miro/Mentimeter on the screen so that I can link my explanation with what students do.

Now the problem I have is that it seems the rendering of the pages in Firefox freeze when I change of virtual desk, and thus students might add things on Miro/Mentimeter and I do not see it because the page is frozen. When I get back to the virtual desk, suddenly all the changes students made pop-up. It's extremely frustrating, both for me and students, as sometimes they asked questions related to what I was explaining before and then I have to go backwards.

Is there any way to make Firefox keep rendering pages when they are not on the screen? Any option? I have tried searching about:config with rendering / refresh, but came up with nothing. When looking that issue online, I found the "Always active Window (Always Visible)" extension which supposedly prevent the hidden property of pages to go to true, but that has not solved the problem.

Any help or tips on how to solve this would be greatly appreciated!

Sincerely, Sleris

I have an application that displays a pop up in another window. Downloads can be performed, however when I download a file (.doc, .xls, etc) The download icon and menu are hidden and it's not visible. The file downloads but there's no notification.

This doesn't happen if the downloads is called in the main window (without open a pop window). Instead the file is shown on the corner and the downloads menu is visible . Is there any way to handle both scenarios?

A feature for editing PDF files has recently been added to the released code. I cannot find comprehensive documentation for it. If such exists, a pointer would be appreciated.

Here is the specific problem with which I am struggling. I am marking up a converted web page (Waze) with the tool with the pencil icon. That starts out OK. However, after a while, it gets into a mode in which it thinks I am trying to select some of my previous markings. Once a box has been selected all I can do is move the content or delete it. I do not want to do that. I want to make new marks nearby. It seems to be impossible. The only way I have managed to get around the problem is to save the PDF to a file and then reload it. But that only lasts for a while until it gets back into the mode in which it thinks I am trying to select some of my new marks.

I don't know what is getting it into the selection mode or how to get out once there. There are no clues in the menu. I could use the mode at times for removing marks, so I do also want to know how to get into it.

Help would be much appreciated.

Curl gives us access to the --resolv feature. Its super handy for making quick name resolution changes for single requests without modifying a hosts file. It is particularly handy when troubleshooting proxy's and load balancers.

Is there an equivalent method in firefox to do the same thing?

To be extra clear I do not want to modify the host header. That doesn't help for TLS destinations with certs and subject names etc.

Hello! I am attempting to speed up a box office process by using a UIC card swiper with our ticketing software (which runs in-browser).

In non-Firefox browsers, the card swiper, when used, puts card numbers and expiration dates right into the necessary fields to save me time from typing them. Firefox (my much preferred browser!), however, reads the swipe as a Find In Page request, even when we're clicked into the text field where the card number is meant to go.

Does anyone have an insight on how to make this work the way it does on other browsers? Thank you!

Prior to the decision by Ubuntu to use a Snap to package Firefox, Firefox was routinely updated by APT. This was largely invisible to the user who merely had to authorize the update. However with SNAP there is now the annoying countdown that appears every day when I go into Firefox. I have not researched Snap vs Flatpak vs Aur vs ..., so I do not understand why Ubuntu does not update the Firefox SNAP in the backfround. Undoubtedly there are advantages to Canonical in using Snap, but they haven't sold those advantages to me!

Like a lot of people I spend a lot of my life with the browser open. Linux does not generally use proprietary apps for access to tools which use such apps on mobile devices, so using Twitter, or Youtube, or Reddit, or various Google tools, just uses tabs within the browser. This means to update the SNAP for Firefox I have to exit out of every application on my desktop, and then wait while the SNAP refresh runs in a terminal window, not even a GUI tool. Furthermore this is not just the time to apply the update, I also have to wait while 3MB of code is downloaded, because Ubuntu doesn't bother to preload the Snap update! Strangely Ubuntu 22.04 does not even automatically run a SNAP refresh during a reboot, when everything, including the SNAP daemon itself is shut down! One of the first things I had to do after upgrading to 22.04 was to apply a new snap of the daemon itself. Ubuntu does not provide a tool to shut down the snap daemon. You must open a terminal and kill the daemon.

Although I can tolerate the time it takes this update mechanism to run, I cannot tolerate the time it would take me to restore all of the activities that I had open within Firefox. At this moment, a typical day, I have eighteen tabs open in Firefox. Ubuntu demands that I shut down Firefox, which will discard all of that state information, sit around while it mindlessly loads and applies the SNAP that it could have done in the background, and then I have to restore those eighteen tabs.

So I open the terminal, enter "sudo killall firefox; sudo snap refresh". But then when I go back into Firefox it naturally wants to warn me that the previous session was terminated abnormally. I know that I killed it. The message Firefox chooses for this is misleading "Sorry. We’re having trouble getting your pages back." Instead of, for example "Firefox failed abnormally. Do you want to resume your previous pages?" Since I cannot easily avoid the Ubuntu implementation of SNAP for Firefox is there a Firefox configuration option that says "Yeah, I know Firefox crashed, but I would prefer not to be annoyed by a misleading message when I start it up again if there is a snapshot to recover from."
