So let's say that I have a bookmark in my Firefox bookmarks sidebar with this as the 'Location': file:///E:/Name%20Of%20File.txt

If I were to click that bookmark, the contents of that text file will appear in the browser which allows me to read the contents of the file.

I want to be able to left-click that bookmark from the Firefox bookmarks sidebar or right-click it and select from a context menu and have that .txt file launch in a separate Notepad window, as in launching Notepad as an external application separate from Firefox.

Is that possible with some tweaking and hacking or whatever?

Hello, probably something stupid but suddenly I cannot get to https://chat.mozilla.org/ - has it moved or something? I just get a blank page. This is using Firefox 78.0.2 (64-bit) under Windows 10 (Home). I am pretty sure that SSO (via my github account) normally works. Thanks Spike

I've changed my personal device and currently I only have Firefox installed for the device I am using. When logging in, I've restarted the account password, expecting that sync data from previous devices will be there even after password reset.

Now I've lost all my data, so is it possible to recover Firefox sync data in this scenario?

Under Wayland, Firefox copies multi-line text with Windows-style newlines

Starting Firefox under a Wayland compositor (sway, in my case) with MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=1 and copying some multi-line text results in newlines of the form \r\n, i.e. Windows-style, instead of the expected \n. Starting Firefox with the X11 backed, i.e. without MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=1, doesn't exhibit the issue.

This is most certainly a bug since Wayland is a Unix-like protocol, and as such newlines should be of the form \n. However I am finding the bug tracker a little daunting and I am not sure how to check whether it is already known or not.

By the way, I think there is some other difference between these two 64-bit Firefoxes. Maybe they are different "languages" or "locales"? At the bottom of the Troubleshooting Information page, there is a section on that. The one you don't want is, I think the U.S. English build. Is the other one a different language/locale?

I did the first part of making IE 11 the default browser and renaming the Mozilla Firefox Folder. All that worked fine. The taskbar icon works.

But, I went out of order. I did the above before I saw your "by the way" message. I am again attaching jpegs from both troubleshooting pages on the Internationalization & Localization section If this is what you are referring to they are both the same.

So, if this is alright I will go back and redo the first part of making IE 11 the default browser and so on. Then delete C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox and the desktop icon. Anything else that needs deleting?

Just for grins I am also attaching a jpeg of the Mozilla Firefox program from the Control Panel - Programs_Features page.

Think that's it.

Thanks again and again for all your help, Irv

I went to use Firefox. A message pops up wanting to know if I want to make Firefox my default browser. I thought I all ready had. ( This problem started after Firefox did an update ). Anyway, I clicked "yes". I am taken to a page on my computer that lists all the Aps I have. Firefox was listed but when I clicked on the Apt nothing happened. I tried again and now Firefox is not even listed. How can I make Firefox my default browser if it is not even listed? I am using Firefox to contact you now. The only thing listed is Google Chrome.

Firefox is blocking my Walmart Grocery site. Screen body is blank, all white. Site starts to open, then it is all erased. Only Firefox is doing this and it started recently. Walmart Grocery is essential to me as I am handicapped and need to order the food on-line. I have no installed extensions. No privacy blockers, so problem is coming from within Firefox recently.

As mentioned here https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Headers/Content-Security-Policy/frame-ancestors, CSP: frame-ancestors is supported from Firefox 33. However, it seems doesn't work.

I am trying to embed a 3-party site into our page using an iframe. The 3-party site did whitelist us using these headers - Content-Security-Policy: frame-ancestors 'self' https://*.ourdomain.com - X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN

It works fine on Chrome, but not Firefox. I am using Firefox 79.

Is there anything wrong with our headers?

Thank you!

I am running with firefox 79.0 and am using ubuntu 18.04

I have been using google hangouts for some time with no problems but, now, it will no longer work. It tells me that I have a problem with my camera/video and to check my network. My network is dandy. The only thing I could think of is that its a firefox problem. To check that I brought up google chrome and tried hangouts there and it worked just fine.

I have searched for a solution and found none although there has been an ongoing problem with hangouts for some time.. I suspect that some of the stuff that has been added to firefox to be the culprit but am not sure - hence this.

If anybody has a clue please let me know - thank you!
