PayPal pops up a window, which I want to dock as a tab in the main Firefox window.

How do I do that? The "natural" way was to grab the popped-up window and drag it onto the hamburger menu. A quick search only revealed a preference setting to force pop-ups to be tabs, but that is before-the-fact, whereas I would like an after-the-fact solution.

Thanks in advance.

I want to use a local html file as my new tab page. Currently there is no easy way to do this as far as I can tell.

Firefox at some point has removed the in-built option to set the new tab as a local file. Setting the home page as a local file is possible. But setting the new tab as either home (note, not 'Firefox Home') or explicitly the local file is not an option (see attached image).

Previous forum posts point toward New Tab Override extension. However, in recent releases, add-ons cannot offer a work around as Firefox no longer allows add-ons to access local files. In the image attached, New Tab Override extension shows that it cannot use a local file as the new tab. It can however take a file and store it somewhere it has control over. This means every time I edit the local file, I need to manually re-upload this to the extension in each instance of Firefox. It is no longer a good option.

I am sure I used this feature not too long ago and it feels like a very simple thing. I am sure I must have missed some setting or option. Any help achieving this would be greatly appreciated.

I'm trying to print this page (https://eecaunt.github.io/kanji-sakuin.html), but firefox only prints out the first page, then stops. (Here's a small test version of the same page: https://eecaunt.github.io/kanji-sakuin-small.html)

You can see in the picture that it gets cut off.

Here's the pdf of the picture: https://mega.nz/file/6wwBUIaC#swNET5o7oGArqOuhxLqGhsPKElxznIe2aqvI0TFKO5E

If you see weird overlapping text, then just reload the page. idk why firefox sometimes doesnt finish loading the page…

As an aside: How do I keep the local links (that are in the webpage) in the PDF that Firefox generates?

Hey There,

whenever the window is inactive and i want to scroll the site (with a touchpad swipe) it instead navigates forward or backward. ONLY when the window is inactive. the behavior is the same with horizontal and vertical swipes. I've tried disabling the feature like described here (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/915174) but i had no luck with that.

i'm using firefox 78.2. on an opensuse 15 laptop. thought i might be an issue with that but with chromium i dont have that issue

thanks in advance.

Please note that my question is not about preserving preferences. I've searched and found many Q&A threads on preference preservation, but I don't think that is my problem or issue.

What I'd like to do is to make some Ubuntu desktop menu shortcuts to launch specific web-based apps, in individual windows (I suppose separate instances and new-window) of specific size, with a given specific URL, hopefully with it's own icon, sort-of replacement of desktop apps. So in the Desktop menu I should be able to see 'Google Meet' (for instance) as an application with it's own icon, but clicking it launches Firefox with Google Meet's URL, and a window that is just 800x600 in size.

However, when I try to launch windows on Ubuntu MATE (also tried Lubuntu, and standard Ubuntu... all 20.04), firefox seems to ignore --window-size command line parameter, and all new windows are of exactly same size, which is the default size apparently, ignoring the command-line parameter. What gives ? How can I do what I am trying to as explained above (from firefox standpoint... I know how to create Ubuntu .desktop file etc.).

cheers, B

It is possible to clear all the cookies from a website in Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/clear-cookies-and-site-data-firefox In my case, I would like to clear only authentication cookies (to be automatically disconnected when I close Firefox) but I want to keep the other cookies about my preferences. However, I can select on which websites I want to clear my cookies but I can't select which ones.

Is there a way to select the list of cookies I want to keep/clear for each websites?

Thanks.

F.e.: I wait urls like https://A, but when this A url load, it 302 redirect to https://B, and the extension don't run because we are on B url, not A. I don't know B url and it can be different each time. content_scripts.run_at.document_start wait until request is done and don't help. Can I resolve my problem with web extension? Or I must try other thing?

I'm seeing breakthrough of the background when Firefox is open on my second monitor.

This seems to occur when the window on the secondary monitor is minimised, then maximised and mouse over the image on the secondary monitor (second is right hand side) - see image.

Initially I thought this was a graphics issue but this does not occur when I repeat the steps with other applications. I have also tried it with Chrome and Chrome does not display the same behaviour. I do not see this behaviour on the primary monitor.

I have reduced the refresh rate from 144Hz to 60Hz and reset Firefox which has not cured the issue. It appears to me that the only application that exhibits this behaviour on this machine is Firefox.

I also started to see this occur on my previous machine which was based on Mint 17 and a different Nvidia GPU and monitors and had been stable for many years.

If there is any further information I can provide, please let me know as I'm loathed to change from Firefox as I've been a fan for many years.

Greetings - I am using Firefox on Ubuntu 20.04.1. When I try to log on to a secured DoD site, I get the certificate selection pop-up. Normally, only two of three certificates are displayed. I used to be able to select the first certificate without error but the DoD recently changed their requirements. Now, the same certificates are displayed but the one I need is not displayed. How do I edit that window to display all certificates on the CAC card? Thank you for your time.

This has been an ongoing bug with FF; I found search results here that are a decade old! And it's a big bug! Here's why: Unit: Linux Mint 20-C on a Vivobook using FF 80.0.1 (64-bit) 1: about:preferences > Applications > mailto > Firefox 2: about:preferences > Startup > Restore previous session 3: I have no other browser on my laptop (which is where this occurred).

In testing by clicking an email link, it went into that new tab open loop (at a rate of about 2 tabs per second), because what is now obvious, is FF browser cannot be an email client; at least, not as it is, and has been. I tried to launch it in a variety of ways (e.g. private; restart with add-ons disabled), but no matter what, the loop would reopen the browser, and continue the loop. I had to restart my laptop in safe mode just to use it.

So, I uninstalled FF and reinstalled it, launched it, and again it immediately looped uncontrolled. So, I again booted in safe mode, uninstalled FF, deleted all FF associated folders on my laptop, then reinstalled it. Fixed! Wow, that's just about as buggy as a computer can get! As the only browser, this created a serious conundrum. Thankfully I'm on Linux so I could install another browser brand if need be.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-repeatedly-opens-empty-tabs-or-windows

I finally found this page, after the fact, but this issue should not be a problem to begin with: Bug! Filing a bug report has been done multiple times over the last decade, with no resolution, so why do it again? Logic dictates that If this bug cannot be fixed, just eliminate this as a choice in the next version. Using FF (synced) on 4 different devices, I had to check them all and undo that setting! Fair warning to all. And most will not be as determined to stay with FF; they'll uninstall it, quietly, and just use another browser. FYI
