When I upgrade Firefox versions, I create a new profile folder to test the newer version. When I upgraded to V101, I found Google Maps worked very well using the standard config file the install created, especially in relation to panning in Street View. then when I miggrated over my old config file from V88 Google Maps became very sluggish on panning. Clearly some config entries need tweaking. How do I know which class of config entries are used by Google Maps? I dont want to compare every single line of the config files..

Its about time Firefox came with a flyout when you hover over each config entry to tell us what it does?

A few minutes ago, I submitted a question from my laptop which uses Firefox and Windows 10. I just noticed that your system showed that my question was coming from Chrome Windows 10 and from an IP address that matches my Ipad and NOT my laptop.

How is that possible? I didn't send my question from my ipad. I sent it from my laptop which uses Windows 10 but Firefox; and I don't have Chrome on my laptop or my ipad. So how could your system pickup Chrome when it's not in my home anywhere, and why would it detect my Ipad's IP address instead of my laptop/regular home IP address? (I have no sync between my Ipad and my laptop).

Please clear up this mystery.

Regards, Steve

Over the last couple months I've noticed that the tweet notifications that I receive from Tweetdeck and surfaced on Firefox don't resolve to the correct Twitter account. When I click on the notification popup they go to an account named @tweet "account: https://twitter.com/tweet?id=1536430888661053441&cxt=HCwWgsCjyZfwv9IqAAAA" most of the time. This used to work flawlessly up to a couple months ago. I'm not sure what's going on here, whether it is a Tweetdeck/Twitter issue or Firefox issue. Anyone else experiencing this?

Same issue as [this poster] . I've seen no correlation between pixelsPerPx and cursor size, but have noticed this behavior doesn't occur in Manjaro's version of FireFox, so I started asking myself, Self, "what might the differences be here?" Answer I got back: they (Ubuntu 22.04) have bowed to the god of SNAPpiness, and Manjaro still hasn't (gets updates from Mozilla rather than the snap store).

Am I on to something here? What else could be the difference between the two flavors of Linux? Any help would be greatly appreciated, my tired eyes have forced me to change default browser to Chrome or Edge, both of which don't seem to respect my privacy like Firefox. Interesting to note that Thunderbird doesn't have the "flea-size cursor" and it also is not using snap for updates.

I thought it was my extensions but it was not that. A thread was created on reddit describing the problem I have. I have linked it here. https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/rhwuvz/firefox_full_screen_on_win11_always_leaves_some/ I tried to change themes and that also did not work. Not sure what the problem is. Please help.

Unable to send a newspaper article to others by email. At the top of the pop up is the statement " Choose an application to open the mailto link." Two choices, neither allows me to send the article to other. Choice 1. Firefox; choice 2. Choose other applications. Previously I had to show my email address and the recipients email address. I'm very frustrated and need help in simple terms and not in the jargon of an IT specialist.

I installed DarkReader and tried it out. However didn't like the experience and removed it. Now some websites which were enabled by DarkReader are partially black (not dark not light). No matter what I try it is displayed like that. I tried: 1. Reset Firefox cache 2. Reboot the system

The webpage is loading fine in other browsers like Safari or chrome. Looks like Dark Reader messed up something and removing it didn't reset the state for these websites.

I entered my password accidentally into the username field on a webmail page. It keeps showing several entries I made in the past every time I log in. How do I get rid of these entries? I searched the subject and all the suggestions of deleting it in the dropdown box with SHIFT+DELETE or CTRL+DELETE don't work.

I also use Vivaldi browser and I have the same issue when logging in to webmail. The list of usernames is different from Firefox so I know the lists are tied to the particular browser. I was able to delete the entire list with Vivaldi and I logged in to webmail and auto-fill list is gone. Can't do the same in Firefox. Please help.

Title says it all pretty much. I have text cursor indicator turned completely off on windows, so that's why I'm wondering why Firefox does it when I never enabled something like it. I have the ctrl+pgup and ctrl+pgdown button combos binded to my extra mouse buttons, and I use them very frequently, so this starts to become really annoying really quickly. Especially if I've somehow accidentally 'selected' something on youtube or such, and then it displays a big blue blob out of nowhere. I don't know if this is a purposeful feature or what, but I would appreciate it if somebody could tell me how to disable it, it's extremely irritating.

I don't know if this is a settings or privacy issue with Mozilla but i am stuck and frustrated because the process works on different devices.

Dear Community,

Suddenly, about two or three weeks ago, it ceased to be possible for me to copy images from websites and paste them into Skype to share.

What is the reason for this?

Is it because Microsoft have somehow blocked this function into Skype?
