Firefox 78 sometimes fails to block autoplay, e.g. scrolling the front page of reddit.com or a subreddit will intermittently show videos playing.

This worked in 77. Some about:config entries I'd swear were set in 77 have vanished; I tried adding them manually, but the autoplay blocking is still hit and miss.

Also, not sure if Troubleshooting Information uploaded successfully or the page broke (see screenshot).

What can i do more to recover my data or restore sync ?

Since one of the recent FireFox updates, the default action in the URL bar for "unknown" domains is always a search. As a web developer, this is extremely aggravating, since I can no longer type "foo.local" into the URL bar and confirm, in order to access http://foo.local/ (see also attached image). It will instead execute a search for "foo.local".

I have looked through the options of browser.urlbar in about:config, but so far I couldn't identify if any of these options would influence this new behaviour.

In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.

Hello,

i have a problem with a personal webextensions, that i have written for my personal use. I add a new protocol in windows 10 pe registry (player://) and use this to start a special windows script.

My extensions put an new menu-entry on right click and rewrite the url from the tab with the the protocol (play://https://www.youtube.com/asanexample).

Now he does nothing in the newest versions of Firefox. I use

browser.tabs.update({url: "play://https://www.youtube.com/asanexample"});

and nothing happends. The tab.url says www.youtube.com, but nothing happends. But when i call

function updateFirstTab(tabs) { var updating = browser.tabs.update(tabs.id, { // active: true, // loadReplace: true, url: "play://https://www.youtube.com/asanexample"}); updating.then(onUpdated, onError); }

var querying = browser.tabs.query({currentWindow:true}); querying.then(updateFirstTab, onError);

and then an:

browser.tabs.create({

   		url:"https://example.org"
 		});

He loads the protocol page and the new created example.org page.

When i use tabs.create he call the protocol, like my old tabs.update code.

Is that an security change? But why tabs.update functioned when i call a tabs.create after it? When i must use tabs.create how can i seamlessly close the newly created tab after call the protocol?

I hope it is a bug in web extension;), why my code has functioned with the tabs.update() so many firefox version along.

thx

Hello!

I was wondering if there are any plans to add a feature like this (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-CA/firefox/addon/auto-tab-discard/) to Firefox? I tend to keep lots of tabs open at once, and I'd love to be able to pause unused tabs without closing them. But I'd prefer to avoid giving an add-on access to all of my data. So I keep hoping that this type of feature will get incorporated into Firefox. Do you know if there are any plans like this?

Thanks so much in advance and for the work that you're doing!

Firefox occasionally displays the digit 9 as a dash "-". On any particular website this can occur on all pages, only some pages or on one part of a page and not another part of the same page. This occurs in the same places on Chrome and Opera but it does not occur on Safari. I have seen it occur on text sent from a website as well as on text I type. In one example, the font-family is Helvetica and the problem occurs on larger font-sizes but not smaller sizes sent from the website. In another example, when typing a credit card number, the font-size is typically small and the problem does occur. I am using Firefox version 77.0.1 on Mac OS 10.11.

It is difficult to describe what is going on. Here's what it looks like:https://i.imgur.com/mTJfDeD.mp4. I don't know how else to illustrate the issue. This has been going on for the past several versions of Firefox. I'm currently using 79.0b3 (64-bit) on a Mac.

So I've been using firefox for a while now, and I really like it, but in the past few months it has suddenly decided that my browser is out of date (not the case, I'm running the latest update) and unsupported, even though it says firefox is supported. This happens on a lot of different sites. I tried resetting my useragent and clearing my cache and cookies, but nothing seems to have happened. I still get the bug. I submitted to webcompat too.
