I'm on FF Beta v105.0b6, and a recent upgrade (I'm guessing from 104 to 105) has caused popup windows to be ghosted when saving files, leaving only the file selector field visible and floating above the main window, often indistinguishable from the text below it. I've been able to work around this by temporarily jumping to another screen or window and then back to find the complete popup window magically revealed.

I've attached two clips from windows a see after clicking Download link on the https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ page. This ghost behavior also happens on pages where I right-click context to "save as" or click download link for TXT, PDF, PKG or other types of files.

This doesn't seem to be a popup blocking issue, since my FF is not configured to block these specific sites and the popup is minimally visible. Also, the temporary workaround of simply switching my view away and back points more to a page rendering issue.

I'd appreciate any ideas on resolving or preventing this behavior. If these clues point to a bug, I hope they help resolve the issue.

Thanks for any suggestions!

The URL in the URL bar is trimmed. I went to about:config and disabled "browser.urlbar.trimURLs", but it still did not work after I restarted Firefox. (see images)

Firefox version: 105.0 (on beta update channel)

I later then found out that there is a lot of unused space on the right. (see https://1drv.ms/v/s!Ag9_47ED3j7sgsZhkB02k7gI3lavyg) How do I remove / make use of the space on the right of the URL bar? How do I turn off the trimming of the URL?

Any help is appreciated!

My FireFox media player was working fine this morning. Now it will not play the mp3 files I need to play for my work. Also, there's no sound on YouTube when I use FireFox. I have system sounds on my computer, and I have sounds on Google Chrome, but there are no sounds on FireFox. The media player will open with the mp3 files, but it does not move or play at all. I disabled my antivirus and it still won't work. So that is now fully back on. I uninstalled and reinstalled, restarted my computer, I have done so many things over the last 4 hours and nothing is working. There was a Windows update today that happened shortly before this problem occurred.

Well, I wanted to provide PRIVATE feedback to the developers, but it appears that they are intent on avoiding that at all costs, continually steering me into posting on the public forum instead by not providing any other alternative. So be it. Remember, this was not my choice.

I was shocked to see the following results from Firefox's own presearch for the simple term "mom" (I was typing a longer word, but the presearch came out during my typing). I think your curation algorithms need some hard tweaking.

hi,

i'm using FF (version 98 at the moment) to print local files. It is key to me to edit header and footer for each print! the only solution i found so far to edit them at all, is to go to about:config and for example search for print.print_headerleft. Besides that is not usable at all, it simply doesn't work! The header and footer remain the same. Please tell me how can i change header and footer?

If you delete the, in my opinion much better "page setup", why don't you include all it's funktions in the new print dialog?

another problem is the size of the new print preview! it's much to small! make it resizeable please.

Or just give us back the "page setup". That would be a big advantage over chrome and edge, which suffer the same printing problems.

Thanks

This computer is about to crash so I have a laptop backup. I have copied my Firefox profile before from my last computer to this one that is crashing without issues at all. It copied all of my bookmark data, settings, logins, themes, add-ons, etc last time. This time it refuses to read any of the files copied. No add-ons, no bookmarks no nothing. I need this taken care of ASAP as this comptuer is on it's way down and the monitor likely only has days left the way it's running. Why does copying profiles no longer work? I know how to do it and I did the exactly the same as I did before. It's been an hour fighting with it and nothing is working. I need this done ASAP.

So this is driving me nuts - Firefox thinks I am still in Chelmsford.

I havent lived there for some considerable time... I am now in SCOTLAND (exact location witheld for security) but I am over 400 mile away from where Firefox alone thinks I am. Whenever an app or website asks Firefox for my location it tells them I am in Chelmsford. ALL and I do mean ALL other browsers get it right. Only Firefox gets this wrong.

I dont use a VPN or anything like a plugin to alter or conceal my IP location - if I check my IP geolocation directly it is correct - but firefox seems to ignore this data for some reason... The only thing I can think of is that it may be using some wifi geolocation map - and of course my two routers which both have distinctive SSIDs may still be logged as being located in Essex... How on earth would I get that updated I wonder... The people who came up with the whole wardriving geolocation map idea dont seem to have considered that routers might move...

Meanwhile in attempts to solve this :

I HAVE - cleared ALL browser cookies and data I HAVE - uninstalled and reinstalled the browser I HAVE - Cleared ALL history. I HAVE checked the location returned by all the popular geolocation services that I know of. They all get it right - but STILL Firefox persists with this crazy delusion that I am still in Chelmsford, when I am definietly NOT!

So how do I fix this?

By the way I am an IT professional so you may take it that I have tried everything obvious!

Please do read the list of things I have already tried before replying, but what am I missing?

PS I also checked my ISP - they also have my location correct - so it isn't some weird IP routing thing...
