I don't like the megabar, and I have looked around to see if there are any fixes for the most recent Firefox 77 update that forces that user to have it (like at least one other update, it just assumes that people like it). I have tried using the userChrome.css file, but that didn't work. I have also tried going into about:config, which also didn't work. Is there any possible way to say 'I never want to see this megabar again in my life'? Or a way to tell the devs that it should NOT be a default option on new updates? Or a way to turn it off that will always be around, unlike the about:config deal? Any help would be great. I attached an image of the megabar.

I'm having a weird problem where 4k videos that are scaled down to say the normal YouTube player size look terrible, hard to find the right word to explain it, but edges are jagged. It improves a lot if I full screen the player to presumably closer to 4k dimensions.

Changing playback to 1080p looks better than 4k, again I'm sure it's to do with scaling.

  • I don't have this problem when testing the same videos in Internet Explorer.
  • It's not just my videos, other peoples videos are doing it to.
  • Updated to the latest version of Firefox.
  • Updated my GPU drivers (MSI Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660).
  • Tested in Firefox safe mode and disabled/enabled hardware acceleration.

I'm running out of ideas, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

On 77.0.

Noticed that after last update, opening a new tab with audio on the previous tab (such as a YouTube video playing) causes the audio to pause/stutter each time a new tab is opened.

No other changes to this system, and good amount of resources available in each test. Would be great if someone could quickly repro. (I am not discounting a machine-specific cause yet.)

I teach at James Madison University and must download zip and jpg files for instruction. Sometime within the last 48 hours, Firefox would not download any jpg or zip files. For years now, this has never been an issue. The tab indicates connecting, the grey shadow passes through the tab and then nothing. I have tried this at different academic sites and the same happens. There is no problem downloading zip or jpg files using Chrome. What happened and how to fix it?

Hi everybody, I'm running Firefox 77.0 on my 2014 rMBP with OSX 10.11.6. A few hours ago my OS crashed and I reset my computer. Once I did this, I opened everything back as it was pre-crash and all my Firefox tabs and absolutely everything else loaded correctly except for my history.

Every time I type a word, no previously visited URLs will load up in my URL field, I checked my History and it seems to have deleted 99% of every site I've visited. The recently closed tabs and windows are still there, and I can reload them if I press cmd+shift+t, however the rest of my actual history seems to be gone. I've reset (normally) my computer a couple more times, repaired disk permissions and whatnot and for some reason it won't even save whatever other sites I've now visited since it was wiped. Am I screwed here?

I have installed Firefox and Firefox Beta on MacOS and open them in that order so both are running concurrently; Firefox (not beta!) is selected as the default browser on my computer. Whenever I follow a link from any application that is not a browser, new tabs are opened in Firefox Beta.

If Firefox Beta is not running, tabs open as expected, in Firefox.

My expectation is that tabs would always open in the browser that is set as the default.

Is there any way I can tell the Operating System to open new tabs in Firefox and not in Firefox Beta?

Hi,

I really really really hate the new address bar. In the last update it appeared in my browser and I had been able to make it go away with changing the following settings to false;


   browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus
   browser.urlbar.update1
   browser.urlbar.update1.interventions
   browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips

I'm not sure if something updated between last night's shutdown and this morning's bootup but the ugly giant bar is back again and when I checked those settings in config they're all set to false. I tried toggling them true to false again but I can't get the old style bar back. I don't really want to revert to an older version as I know that's not secure. Does anyone have a way to get the bar back to how it used to be or is it time to use another browser?

Thanks!

Unable to make payment, specific site, Firefox 76 & above, usual solutions not working

I am having an issue with not being able to make a payment on a specific site: www.walmart.com since upgrading to Firefox 76/77.

I am using:

Windows 7 on desktop PC


When on Walmart.com with items in the shopping cart, I have the option to "proceed to checkout." This usually loads a new screen in the same tab - not a pop up box.

This time, however, I only got a white screen with continually spinning circle.

Attempted fixes:

Verified with Walmart that they could indeed access my checkout Verified that I could access the checkout in another browser, Internet Explorer Tried turning off enhanced tracking protection cleared cookies Disabled ad blocker Unchecked Block Pop Up windows re-checked Block Pop Up windows and created exception for www.walmart.com Upgraded to Firefox 77

None of the above had any effect.

I have no Add-ons to disable. I'm running a pretty basic system.

I was finally able to make my purchase on a different computer that was still running Firefox 75. Thus, I have narrowed the problem down to the upgrades of Firefox 76 and beyond.

I was also able to make a purchase on a different site using Firefox 76, but I don't recall if that site needed to load a new screen for checkout. Still, www.walmart.com will not cooperate. Any ideas what else could be blocking this particular site?

This is not a practical question (I'm sorry). I'd just like to understand.

A few years ago, it was necessary to install a plugin in order to playback a video (for instance the VLC-web-plugin). Nowadays, plugins are not necessary. You can just assign an application such as VLC player to a specific file type (In Firefox -> Options -> General -> Applications you can choose which file type is opened with which application). But whats the technical difference between VLC installed on operating system level and VLC as a web-plugin of Firefox? Both are external programs (locally installed) started from within the browser.

I know, that it is the goal of web2.0 to get rid of the plugins, as they are security risks and not user-friendly. However, what is the difference if I can assign an external program to render the file? Is it maybe, that only the plugins such as flash and shockwave can change the html-code on the client side and make the website interactive (and more insecure)?
