I am trying to use a <select> tag to display a color selector. So each <option> has a background color to match its displayed text:

```<select id="strokeColor" name="strokeColor" style="width: 10em;">

             <option value="black" style="background: #000000; text: #FFFFFF">
                     black
             </option>

<option value="aqua" style="background: #00FFFF">

                     aqua
             </option>

<option value="blue" style="background: #0000FF">

                     blue

<option value="green" style="background: #00FF00">

             </option>

<option value="magenta" style="background: #FF00FF">

                     magenta
             </option>

                     orange
             </option>

<option value="purple" style="background: #800080">

                     purple
             </option>

<option value="red" style="background: #FF0000">

                     red
             </option>

<option value="white" style="background: #FFFFFF">

                     white
             </option>

<option value="yellow" style="background: #FFFF00">

                     yellow
             </option>

<option value="#000000" selected="" style="background: #000000">

                     #000000
             </option>
         </select>```

On Chrome this displays as expected:

But on Firefox the background colors are ignored:

https://assets-prod.sumo.prod.webservices.mozgcp.net/media/uploads/images/2024-04-18-22-02-35-bd90ee.png

How can I get Firefox to display the background colors?

Hello. When I open a private window and try to pin it to the taskbar, it instantly changes into the normal (non-private) Firefox icon and then only opens normal windows when I click on it.

Nvidia RTX Super Resolution seems to only work very rarely or not at all compared to the Chrome version. In some instances it will upscale the Full-Screen Video. It will not interact with windowed videos at all. But it will never upscale a windowed version that exceeds the playback resolution.

Steps to reproduce for windowed videos:

  1. Open any youtube video
  2. Set the resolution to 480p or lower (as I am using a QHD 2560 x 1440p monitor)
  3. Playback the video and monitor Nvidia Control Panel to see if Super Resolution has activated.

Observation for windowed videos: Feature works in Chrome. Feature does not work in Firefox

Full-Screen and Super Resolution: I have no idea what is going on here, on very rare occasions it does work, for the most part it does not work at all. If I had to give a rough idea of when it works, I would say that it is more likely to work when Firefox has been freshly launched.

I could neither see an active change in the Control Panel, or notice anything in the video quality. Both a quality change and feedback in the Control Panel occur when using the feature in Chrome. I have tested on identical links, with identical quality settings.

I tried:

  • setting the Super Resolution Quality manually, instead of manually
  • an incognito tab

1. Web pages load in gibberish, they aren't legible. 2. Web pages load with neon green blocks. 3. Firefox isn't allowing me to download an entirely new download.

I understand the gibberish could be a font problem but when I use right click for inspection options, I can't find any font info anywhere. Even if I could, what would I do then? Green blocks, have no idea. I used to use Firefox and have just now started again but would prefer a brand clean copy. Mozilla isn't giving me that option. Thanks.

Many questions and answers I see regarding the sync function. I would like to know the depth of what Firefox does. I have multiple PC's and an Android. What is the depth of sync for extensions? Is it possible to have mirror images of the entire Firefox setup duplicated? It would be spectacular to move from one PC to the other and find that Firefox has the exact same setup.

Hi,

I was using FF on Ubuntu 22.04.4 LTS. Had version FF 120.x and playing video in Netflix worked fine. Then I updated to FF 124.x and playing video stopped with error F7355-1203.

I've checked the DRM setting and it is enabled, I checked addons and I have OpenH264 and Widevine installed, both set to always active.

I've checked installed codecs and I do have libavcodec58 installed. No update for that available via apt. I also have ffmpeg installed, no problem with that either. I can play Netflix videos in Chrome, but not in Firefox now. Something happened to Firefox when I updated from 120.x to 124.x. Today I updated to 125.x, same problem, Netflix video won't play.

I've unchecked the DRM setting and re-checked it, and that does reinstalled Widevine but does not fix the problem.

Any ideas what could be the cause?

I've just updated to Firefox 125 and now, when I start to type in the URL bar and get my suggestion dropdown of previously visited pages, I no longer can see the actual url for each entry. All I see is the top level name for each entry.

This is not helpful, as I may have perviously visited a number of pages on that site and the information shown does not give me a way to differentiate sufficiently between those pages.

How can I get the exact url displayed on the suggestions dropdown.

How can I get those top level descriptions NOT displayed, so that only the urls are shown?

Firefox browser, v123.0.1, 64-bit. windows 10 Pro, 22H2.

Hello, this may not be a problem with Firefox itself at all, but I'd like to try to understand what the cause of the problem I and others are having.

I have Norton 360 installed, in this Windows 10 computer and like to use Firefox for internet browsing, it has always served me well.

I also have Norton Safe Search integrated/add-on to Firefox. This puts a red, green, or gray check mark at the end of each link that comes up during a search and has always worked before.

Recently, I've noticed that such check marks do not appear at all when doing a search with Firefox, but they are present when I do searches with MS Edge.

I am searching for a solution here, and also in the Norton Community. There are others there who have stated they are having the same problem.

Has anyone here heard of this before, would you have any suggestion as to what may be causing the lack of the Norton Safe Search check marks in Firefox searches?

Any input/suggestions would be welcome.
