When you open a new tab a "snippet" is shown at the bottom of the page. According to the preferences this is for "Updates from Mozilla and Firefox".

Now I'm starting to see messages about how I can fight racism and how I should be proud of who I am.

Is there a way to limit the messages to things that are actually related to Firefox? I want to see important technical updates. I see enough political statements everywhere else.

I followed the directions on a security site to protect online communication. It suggested one or more setting, which resulted in Firefox opening in a fixed size window by default.

Hi folks,

I have endured the sync problem for months. Today I struggled for solving it.

I have a Firefox 68.0.1 esr manual installation on Ubuntu 16.04. The sync worked when I signed in the first time. But the bookmark can not longer be updated afterwards.

If I add or delete a bookmark on my Firefox 68.0.1 esr on Windows 10, the change will not be updated to the Linux version. And vice versa.

On the Linux, I tried to disconnect my account (in the preference about:preferences?entrypoint=fxa_app_menu#sync ). I click "Disconnect" and "Just Disconnect" in the prompt, but the account is still logged in.

Another way I tried is to have a fresh new installation of Firefox 68.9 esr. Then I was asked to sign in again. After typing the password, the new bookmarks were updated. But If I make further changes on the other devices, these changes will not be sync to Linux. And I can't disconnect the account on Linux.

It looks like a new install, which resetting the login process can temporarily solve the problem.

Here is the content of the sync-log file. Can you see what is broken? Thanks in advance.

I've assigned user-defined shortcuts to Firefox on my Mac by adding items to:

    System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> + icon. 

This method works fine in other applications. However, within Firefox these only work after I've clicked on the menu bar and displayed the item with the shortcut.

For example, I have a shortcut to show the Bookmarks Toolbar defined as "View->Toolbars->Bookmarks Toolbar." In Firefox, under View menu I see the item "Bookmarks Toolbar" with the appropriate shortcut key shown next to it. BUT whenever I open a new window I have to show that menu item again before the shortcut key actually works.

Is this a bug?

I've tried different shortcuts, turning on/off private browsing, defining shortcuts under "All Applications" as well as "Firefox.app"

Thanks in advance for your help!

I recently bought a graphic tablet (https://www.trust.com/en/product/21794-panora-widescreen-graphic-tablet), and it works flawlessly outside of firefox. However, when holding BigBlueButton lectuers, I need to use it within firefox, which doesn't seem to work. At first I thought it was an issue with BigBlueButton, but now I tried other websites (limnu, cocreate, etc.), and they all have the same problem:

Whenever I move the pen on my graphic tablet, only the first and last 'points' are recognized. Is there a way to increase firefox's refresh rate for mouse clicks? Or is there any other solution?

I'm using firefox 68.9.0esr, 64-bit on windows 10.

OpenGL and WebGL hardware acceleration not working on Debian Firefox with Intel 915GM

Dear Mozilla Supporters,

I am having issues with OpenGL and WebGL support on an older 32 bit Pentium M machine using the latest Firefox 77.0.1 and Debian 10.4 on LXQt. - GPU is Intel 915GM - kernel support is enabled - correct firmware and mesa drivers available for OpenGL 1.4, OpenGL ES 2.0 - X11 correctly initialises DRI and DRI2 with kms and SNA

Firefox about:support shows: - blacklisted OPenGL and WebGL with FEATURE_FAILURE_OPENGL_1 - WebGL 1 Driver Renderer WebGL creation failed:

  • Refused to create native OpenGL context because of blacklist entry: FEATURE_FAILURE_OPENGL_1
  • Exhausted GL driver options.

WebGL 2 Driver Renderer WebGL creation failed:

  • Refused to create WebGL2 context because of blacklist entry: FEATURE_FAILURE_OPENGL_1

HW_COMPOSITING blocked by env: Acceleration blocked by platform OPENGL_COMPOSITIFNG unavailable by default: Hardware compositing is disabled GPU_PROCESS unavailable by env: Hardware compositing is unavailable. WEBRENDER opt-in by default: WebRender is an opt-in feature WEBRENDER_QUALIFIED blacklisted by env: No qualified hardware WEBRENDER_COMPOSITOR disabled by default: Disabled by default blacklisted by env: Blacklisted by gfxInfo unavailable by runtime: No DirectComposition usage WEBRENDER_ANGLE opt-in by default: WebRender ANGLE is an opt-in feature WEBRENDER_DCOMP_PRESENT opt-in by default: WebRender DirectComposition is an opt-in feature OMTP broken by runtime: OMTP is not supported on 32-bit with <= 2 cores WEBGPU disabled by default: Disabled by default blocked by runtime: WebGPU can only be enabled in nightly

I tried many different Firefox config combinations with force_acceleration, as well as X11 with UXA, without success. I tested OpenGL support in native X11 with glxinfo and glxdemo, and hardware accelleration does work.

I believe this worked in the past without issues, I have been using the same machine on older Lubuntu and recently decided to upgrade to the latest Debian eqivalent.

Any ideas why Firefox does not see and use the OpenGL accelleration available in X11?

Every other browser plays audio, every game plays audio, every media player on my pc plays audio.

I can see the firefox audio going up and down like it wants to play but nothing is coming out. I'm a tech savy guy with computers and I can't even get this to work! It's stressing me out, started 2 days ago and hasn't gone away, didn't install anything new either.

I've double checked and triple checked my computers audio settings, even did a remove performance thing within firefox that says it can fix. doesn't.

I have been having this problem lately where Firefox won't remember the window position and size I assign it to, staying tucked away in the corner. It started when I started to use the [win key] + [arrow keys] to split my screen into 2. The thing is that it will remember the side it was last session, left or right; but it won't remember anything related to size. So every time I open Firefox I will have to manually maximize it which gets old pretty quickly. If I create a new profile it will magically work again but after logging in and importing my settings, bookmarks, etc, it will go back to the same problem. I have already tried reinstalling, disabling extensions and deleting xulstore.json (as well as getting the one from the new profile and replacing the old one). Help!
