How do I turn off those sound notifications that just started? Think they are from the extensions (Adblocker?) Just started today, after the last Firefox update.

Firefox just updated. Now I'm getting loud double beeps. (annoying) Think they are coming from the extensions? How can I mute these sounds.

When I use Firefox on the external monitor, I set the zoom level to 150%. When I leave home a take my laptop with me, I set the zoom level to 100% to use with a smaller screen.

I want to automate setting the zoom level.

Is there a way to programmatically set the zoom level from a script? Does Firefox expose such an API / command-line tool?

Thanks!

So I downloaded a few programs that were legitimate, no viruses or anything I checked, but also added a few programs. When I started seeing weird problems with firefox, I went to uninstall them from my windows, and I did. I uninstalled every program from today. But Firefox still won't let me search anything. When using the search bar, if it's one word, it'll search and automatically put other things in the search to make it look for a website. If it's more than one word, it just doesn't respond to me hitting enter or clicking the search button. I believe it's because Firefox seems to have lost all options for a default search engine. It has nothing selected for a default search engine, and whenever I click on it to show options, it just doesn't. Also, I have no weird add-ons that showed up, and the problem persists even when I disable every add-on I have. There are also no weird plugins. Can someone help? I'd rather not have to search google.com every time I want to search for something.

Currently the menu only shows "Open Link in New Tab" and "Open Link in New Private Window"

I seem to remember having to edit something in about:config to get this option in the past, but I just installed Firefox on a new computer and can't find the option.

I'm aware that there are other methods of doing that (middle click), but that's not ideal as I'm really used to using the right-click menu.

In my main profile, restore session stopped working. The option is set, but it doesn't work. It worked for 3 years since I created this profile, but now it doesn't work.

Recently, this profile has been crashing regularly on quit. I quit (CRTL-Q) and the window does away, then 10 seconds later, I get a pop up message saying that firefox crashed.

Just a moment ago, I had a system crash and now this profile refuses to restore my session. When I started it, there was a new session and all the backup session files contain new sessions, not my tabs. Lost all tabs.

Anyone else seeing this?

Hi,

I am getting the above error currently when I try to access amazon Prime Video using Firefox. I have loaded Firefox with all addons disabled and still get the error. I do have a VPN but was not connected to it at the time.

I can also access Amazon Prime at the same time as I am getting the error in Firefox with Microsoft Edge and Chrome with no issues.

I was just using YouTube, clicked some button, and a pop-up video appeared that I could drag anywhere on the screen, even outside the browser window. It took me a while to realize that it's actually a pop-up window with no border, no file menu, no address bar! just a floating video with no border at all! Very creepy!

What is going on here? How can this be possible? Why is Firefox allowing this? Surely if sites are allowed to make windows pop up without borders, it represents a huge security risk? They could pretend to be anything - a message from Firefox, a Windows error message, anything at all. I am so concerned about this! I presume this is a new feature of Firefox and it needs to be stopped immediately!

Lately, Firefox seems to be giving more and more control over to web developers, and taking away more of the users' rights and security. It is worrying and I don't like where things are going. Why can't Firefox just concentrate on being a great browser instead of allowing developers to do new things?

Hello,

A few days ago I reinstalled win10. I backed up my firefox profile to keep all the data I had. After reinstall everything works except youtube. I can log in as usual, I can access my youtube settings, subscriptions etc. but I can not post comments, subscribe/unsubscribe to a channel or get notifications. When I try to subscribe/unsubscribe youtube gives the error "your session has expired, please login" and when I press the login button in the window it forwards me directly to the homepage of the channel I was trying to subscribe.

What I have tried: Delete cookies and data: nothing Uninstall firefox completely and delete all the data in user appdata folders and reinstall clean with a new profie: nothing

Any ideas? The same youtube account works perfectly on Chrome. I can post, subscribe, and get notifications.

This has become very frustrating since I use firefox since 2007 and I do not want to switch to another browser.

Thanks in advance.

I am using 79.0 (64-bit) now, but since many versions back, Chinese input stops working in Firefox and I have never got around to deal with it. On Windows 10, I have other languages keyboard such as Russian/Japanese/Chinese/French etc. Depending on the need, I switch to other keyboard to enter the language in various places such as search box, form on a page etc. However, since many versions back (I can not remember when), Chinese language (pinyin) input stops working.

but the suggested css no longer seems to have any effect. Any ideas how I can get a nice compact drop-down list?

When I start Firefox only the focused page is loaded. All other pages are blank as I set 'Clear history when Firefox closes' to 'automatically clear' the cache on exit. If I click on another tab it refreshs it. How do I to get every page to load on startup? Firefox treats pinned and normal tabs differently. On restart I have to 'Select all Tabs', then 'Reload page' every time. It used to load all pages automatically but now it doesn't. | Is there an extension? Or an About:Config entry I can change or insert? Private browsing is not used. Pages are open in tabs not windows. I have 20+ tabs open all the time. About half are pinned. Side Note - I would be happy to see the "Reload All Tabs" menu option reinstated.
