Firefox behavior with virtual desktops in Windows 10

Hello dear Firefox experts,

I have been using Firefox for years and of course I would like to continue doing so. :-)

I work with Windows 10 and have learned to appreciate the virtual desktops, which can be set up via the key combination "Windows + Tab". About the desktops can then be distinguished, for example, in "Office" and "Private".

In total, I have actively set up 4 different desktops.

FF I have set up as the "default app" in the Windows settings.

Now it is the case that I have a Firefox window open in the "private desktop", for example.

But when I work in the "office desktop" and click on a URL, the office desktop automatically switches to the private desktop and opens the URL in the FF already opened there in a new tab! :-(

So I have to remember before to open a new Firefox window in the office desktop to display the desired page also on this desktop.

Unfortunately, this doesn't always work.

If I work in the meantime in another of the 4 active desktops and use Firefox there and return to the office desktop and want to open a URL there again, the desktop jumps back to where I last used the already opened FF. This is quite annoying in the long run.

That's why I ran a test today with Google Chrome and MS Edge and defined each of them as the default app for testing.

Stupidly, these two browsers work exactly as I want them to. If I have already opened one of these browsers in another desktop, the URL will still open in the current desktop and any additional URL as another tab will correctly open in the current desktop.

If I now switch to the private desktop and open a URL there, it will correctly open in a new tab in this desktop.

I hope I was able to illustrate my "problem" so far?

Now my question? How can I change the behavior in FF? This seems to be a standard of FF in contrast to both other browser programs. Disabling in the FF settings "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" seems to be only a rudimentary solution;

but then a new window is opened every time, which is also not useful.


Can something be adjusted in the "deeper" settings?

Many thanks in advance for your tips.

Best regards, Georg

Youtube stops working after 2 to 3 days of every fresh reinstall on my Macbook Pro M1Pro device. The video just keeps loading forever, rest assured that it is not an internet issue as i am able to play the same video in other browsers at the same time. A reinstall (removing Firefox System files) always works but is not a permanent solution. I am using Firefox since 10+ years and do not want to shift to any other browser. Please help.

Windows 10; Firefox; GOOGLE "Region Settings" locale is blocked to default region; "show more" ... nothing happens. This is a new problem. I have re-installed Firefox several times without being able to correct the fault. I used system restore to revise system date and still the problem persists. I have checked settings but cannot seem to find anything that will solve the problem.

I'm on Firefox 103.0.2 64 bit on Windows 10. For the last few months when I play a video of any format that I received as an attachment in Yahoo mail everything works as it should until I play the video. After the video is played from the downloaded file Yahoo mail closes. It always happens this way. I first thought it was Yahoo mail but I have another tab with Edge and Yahoo mail on that browser. It doesn't happen when I use Edge to download the video and play it. I use the same player, VLC, to play the video on both browsers. It has worked fine for years.

I am a big fan of Firefox and have used it as long as it has been out. I have convinced all my friends and relatives to use it as well.

I cannot make calls via Firefox on Facebook Messenger. In the second window that normally loads tells me that something went wrong. (in Dutch tells me "Er is iets fout gegaan" This happens on both my computers, Windows and Linux. Even when I start Firefox in troubleshoot mode it is still not working. However works absolute perfectly in Google Chrome. The problem started today by my knowledge for no apparent reason. I tested the camera in Firefox, works. I tested the microphone in Firefox, works, no problem. Also I granted Facebook permission to use the microphone and camera.

Hi,

I set up the Janus website on my LAN and tried to access it using firefox on Raspberry Pi desktop.

However, firefox complained that "connection not secure" even if I allowed all the permissions including the camera and microphone.

Of course, I can use the newest firefox to access the same Janus website package on localhost or AWS(Of course I have a domain name and HTTPS in AWS configuration).

I know that firefox takes care of the security very well, yet in my case, I just want to test the website on my own LAN, I want to understand how to configure firefox in Raspberry Pi to access Janus running on my LAN.

Hardware: Raspberry Pi 4B, 4G memory OS: Ubuntu 21.04 Firefox: 96.0

I guess it is nothing related to Janus but something wrong with my configuration, thank you in advance.
