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!

I think Firefox has blocked my access to my hotmail account.

When I put this into my URL: outlook.live.com

it goes to main page - OK

But when I put this into my URL: outlook.live.com/mail

I get a blank screen . . . and the security icon to the near left of the padlock on browser does not have an option to unblock my mail.

I find no help at hotmail/msn. But my daughter used her phone and got into my mail there - so I think it might be my security setting on Firefox.

Any help will be appreciated.

For quite a while now, I've had this issue where at seemingly arbitrary intervals with seemingly arbitrary queries, Firefox will generate a prompt underneath my address bar asking whether I wanted to go to "http://<searchquery>" where <searchquery> is, well, my search query.

This only occurs in a search in the address bar, and any future queries identical to the original <searchquery> will either redirect to a centurylink search engine, or take me to "<searchquery>.com".

This has occurred independent of the operating system (I've discovered this on both Windows and Linux.) This has occurred before on a completely fresh install of Firefox (default settings and no extensions), and a fresh install of either operating system. (So it's probably not some virus or misconfiguration.)

Another common response I've found is that it's something related to the ISP. For that I can't answer for sure, but I can clarify that my current ISP is Telus.

This doesn't bother me too much, as it's a bug that can be mitigated by just ignoring the prompt. But it's just such an odd inexplicable inconsistency that rarely occurs and I've yet to come across a solution that does properly explain it.

I sometimes invoke firefox on Linux by running the command

`firefox --new-tab` (with no argument to the new tab flag, I have this hooked to a keyboard shortcut).

This has always worked fine (opens a new instance of firefox if none is running; opens a new tab in the open window if there is one). Today I upgraded to Firefox 79.0, and unfortunately it seems that now running the above command opens a new window even if I already have one open. I guess this is a regression?

Getting attached error when logging into Zendesk. I've been on with their support already.

Steps: Clearing data, private window. Safe Mode. All extensions disabled. Enhanced Privacy disabled. Check other browsers - successful with Midori and Chromium. Check other OS - I have a win10 vm with Firefox and get the same result. Check other zendesk sites - My company's domain + support.zendesk.com

I confirmed with their support that anyone can create an account at support.zendesk.com so I'm hoping someone that knows what they are doing can see what is up with this site.

One of the reasons I'm still using 56 is that the start page preference and home page preference are separate. I can set the browser to start with a blank page, but then if I wish to quickly go to my home page I can just click on the icon in the address bar. Don't know why this feature was downgraded in the new versions, but I'd like to update - so how can I make this be so in the new version of Firefox? I want to set the start page different from the home page like 56.

TL/DR: See the image. ;)

I'm on Ubuntu 20.04 (Xubuntu flavor), using Firefox 79.0, working on a web site. I'm coding specifically for Arial... and it's returning Times New Roman.

I have Arial installed, via the ttf-mscorefonts package and also adding them from a Win10 box.

Please, no "But you should do 'font-family: Arial, Veranda, sans-serif'" dismissive answers. Why? Because if I do "font-family: Arial, Veranda" I still get Times New Roman. I can even substitute "Pulsar Beta" here (a font that is installed to my local account) and it still gives me Times New Roman.

If I do "font-family: sans-serif" I get Veranda, not Arial... which is odd because Arial is my default font.

Doing "font-family: Veranda" gets my Times New Roman.

Chrome doesn't have this issue!

As a picture is worth a thousand words, see the pic.

What can I do? I did see some bugs that were fixed in v56, but none of the debugging tips help there.

After two recent updates on Fedora 32 I notice that saving/downloading a webpage does not work properly. Sometimes the *.html file is there but the support folder is empty. Sometimes just the empty folder.

I have also noticed a problem when trying to backup .mp3 files from my Nexus tablet using File Transfer. I used to be able to connect via USB from Desktop to tablet, transfer from and delete files on the tablet using the Desktop. Now the folder holding the files is reported as empty.

I am facing the problem to open the sites. When I used the network, it show the following error:

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at www.google.com.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

Please let me know your suggestion and comments.
