So I've found that Firefox doesn't seem to detect my headset microphone if it's plugged in while Firefox is already running. Going into a Google Meet meeting, it asks me if I want to allow the use of my microphone, and only shows a device that was plugged in already (a Rift S headset microphone) - unplugging, replugging, and refreshing the page all have no effect.

If I close down and restart Firefox completely with the headset plugged in, it works.

After searching, apparently there was a similar bug that appeared around Firefox 36 (I think?) that was fixed soon after - In any case, it seems to have reared its head again.

Since an update about two weeks ago, every time I press alt-s the search/address bar is expanded. This is annoying, because we use this key combination to save forms of a web-application (our ERP). I didn't find an option to disable this behaviour. A web-search did not help. I found some suggestions, but none of them worked (eg. old discussions here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=446830 or here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=343909)

Any Ideas?

The Citicard virtual account launcher has stopped working in firefox. It used to work. A note has always said to disable popup blockers before launching, but I didn't need to do so in the past. I have now specifically allowed popups for https://online.citi.com, which is the page containing the launch button, but this doesn't help. I can see the launch button change color when I move over it and click, but nothing happens. I also temporarily unchecked the Block popup windows option, but that didn't work either. This popup applet works in Edge, but I'd rather use Firefox. Any help would be appreciated.

I downloaded & installed a newer vs of Firefox, only to find the new launch screen informing me that this is now using a 'new profile' and 'it can't be deleted,' but I can get access to my last bookmarks by setting up a Firefox Account and profile. Done - ish. I'm not sure the process completed as I do not have another device to register to this newly created account. Meanwhile, all of my bookmarks are MIA, and there are no folders called 'bookmarkbackups' and there are no other Mozilla files and folders anywhere on my HD that don't have today's date as last modified. HELP!!! please.

This all started when I could no longer download pdfs from shared folders (accessed last week) on the Google (evil) platform. Our IT guy suggested I update my browser version, since I had no problem when I tried a test and downloaded the pdfs w/ease using Chrome(also evil). So I updated my Firefox browser because I don't want to be forced into using Chrome as my primary browser - ever. Now I seem to be totally hosed - by Mozilla this time. You know, I was perfectly happy and well served running vs ~66. And this kind of thing is exactly why I don't like updates. Please help me and restore my previously unwavering faith and loyalty to Mozilla. I have been using Mozilla web browsers exclusively since 1993/4(?) (I don't think it was even called Firefox then). Please help.

On Linux (Pop OS) when the mic or webcam is active, a notification is displayed. This is great and useful for security.

However, I cannot move or click on or do anything with it. The most annoying thing for me is it pops up directly over my system clock (See screenshot attached).

Is this icon supposed to be movable? Is clicking it supposed to do something (like activate the tab using the mic/webcam)? Is this a missing feature or bug?

I've seen some solutions regarding a custom css file that hides it entirely, but I'd still like to know when a tab is accessing it. I just want to be able to move it out of the way!

As you can see from the attached screenshot (it's amusing that the screenshot utility was captured in it), Firefox ESR has an enlarged URL textfield. It recently appeared on Debian-based systems, along with the more annoying bug solved by cor-el in my previous post. It appears when Firefox ESR is first started and on new tabs. I'm sure this is another about:config solution, but I have no idea what to search on.
