I have never maximized a Firefox window and I never will. After the latest update, all new windows, whether they are opened from another page via right-click or directly from the toolbar icon, open in a maximized view. I do not want this. Is there a way to prevent your program from inserting itself directly on top of everything else I'm working on? Have I accidentally changed a setting I cannot find again? I'd like to know if I need to find a new browser.

Hello, I've got a reproduction issue on France TV live programs which I watch through nordvpn. The picture keeps "jumping" fast up and down in a very bothering way. This doesn't happen when the video is NOT live. I run the latest version of LINUX MINT. What can I do to fix it? The only way I found to stop the issue is to take down the resolution of the live video to its minimum which gives me a disastrous picture but stops the "jumping". I guess you might say there is something wrong with my GPU. The point is that my PC is brand new with an AMD 5600G, new MB, 16Gb of RAM and 500w of PSU. BUT more than anything I have to say that everything WORKS FINE with CHROME. I like FIREFOX I have been using it literally for decades now. (I'm 75). Is there a solution? Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks in advance. François.

So I have two different accounts for one website. However one of them I use very rarely, maybe once in 2-3 months the other one i use almost daily. Therefore I have saved both logins in Firefox and I can see them in my passwords.

The problem is that whenever I try to access the website, Firefox auto-fills the "second" account, the one i only use rarely. What this means is that instead of me being able to just press login i have to delete the username filled in by Firefox and select the other one. So what i would like to do is to maybe tell Mozilla that I want it to use the other account for auto-fill.

OS: Ubuntu 23.10 Firefox version: 119.0 Mozilla Firefox Snap for Ubuntu

I have DNS over HTTPS enabled and set to Default Protection in Firefox.

According to the following article (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/dns-over-https?as=u&utm_source=inproduct#w_why-would-a-network-tell-firefox-not-to-use-secure-dns) DNS over HTTPS should automatically switch to "Not Active" when connected to a VPN.

I am using the NordVPN CLI for linux and have found that when I connect to the VPN, Firefox DNS over HTTPS stays active and does not switch to "Not Active" like it is supposed to.

Does anyone know why this might be happening?

Hello, I did something stupid. I was trying to set up the dark/light theme via cli, and I asked openai about it.

It suggested this command:

echo 'user_pref("lightweightThemes.selectedThemeID", "firefox-compact-light@mozilla.org");' | jq -s '.[0]' > ~/.mozilla/firefox/*.default-release/prefs.js

Which resulted in the following error:

jq: parse error: Invalid numeric literal at line 1, column 11

When I opened mozilla, my profile was reset, and websites won't load (except this one!). They just hang there loading forever. My internet is fine, chromium works perfectly.

So how do I fix this and is there a way I can recover my profile? (Yes I know I should've made backups)

I accidentally hid the menu bar and toolbars (with an accidental keyboard shortcut, I think), and when I re-enabled them, now the tab bar is above the location bar instead of right above the content windows. How do I move it back? I can't find the "browser.tabs.onTop" setting in about:config, or any check box in the View menu, settings, etc.

I was using Lightspeed today, and the website pops up a confirmation dialog box (probably through JavaScript) so that you can confirm that you want to do a specific action. I got annoyed with the dialog and clicked the included "Don't allow this website to show prompts anymore" box when I hit OK. But now it won't perform any action that requires you to hit the OK in the prompt, so I need to make the dialogs come back so I can do my job. I can't find any setting anywhere in the browser that I have actually disabled or changed by hitting the box in that prompt.

Wanted to export some bookmarks, and couldn't figure out why (latest Firefox) Bookmarks "Library" was missing relevant buttons/menus. (Screenshots attached.)

After testing, found they actually are there, but have have almost no contrast vs background - that is when "Manage Bookmarks" is called from a Private window. But things look fine when called from a Standard window. (No extensions; same in Safe Mode.)

Can anyone advise?

A simple workaround is to bring a standard window to the front first, but am curious if this is Firefox on all systems? Only FF Linux? Only the particular (default) settings of my Linux Mint 20.3 Cinnamon installation, and display? Not even sure a Bookmark management window is ever meant to assume the theme of the foreground window (here Private browsing's dark).

Thank you.

I'm having the exact same problem as what was originally mentioned in this post from 4 years ago.

The "chosen solution" was to exit firefox through the hamburger menu, which I find to be absolutely ridiculous. You mean to tell me that even though I close EVERY OTHER APPLICATION either using the "X" close button or a custom keybinding that I've set for my own personal convenience, firefox requires me to exit through a menu every time in order to make it behave the way I've told it to? No. Absolutely not. If I tell firefox that I don't want it to save my last session, that means I DON'T WANT IT TO SAVE MY LAST SESSION. If I've deselected the "open previous windows and tabs" option in the settings, then under no circumstances should it be trying to open my previous windows and tabs.

I've tried the suggestion to change the value of browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes from 1 to 0. The problem persists, I assume because firefox considers being closed using the close button to be a "crash", which is interesting.

I the other suggestion further down in the thread was to set browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash from true to false, which will prevent firefox from recovering a session from a crash. This is hardly an appropriate solution. I want firefox to resume my last session if there is a legitimate (key word LEGITIMATE) crash, because my session was closed against my will due to something that went wrong. Being able to recover my last session in such a situation is nice. I do not, however, want firefox to resume my last session when I explicitly closed the last session myself, which would be the difference between a crash recovery and restoring a previous session. If no crash occurred, I don't need a crash recovery, and aside from a crash, I don't want my previous session to be restored.

Are there any solutions to this at all? Because this is one of the biggest reasons why I stopped using firefox. I want to come back to firefox because everything else that's worth using is either dog shit, or Chromium-based (i.e. also dog shit). However, I find this broken feature to be somewhat of a security issue. If a bad actor somehow gains access to my system, I don't want him to be able to open firefox and have access to my last browser session because I closed firefox using a keyboard shortcut instead of closing it through a goddamned menu.

When watching videos on YouTube or Amazon Prime, Firefox will eventually stop recognizing keyboard and mouse input in all windows and tabs. This can happen after just a few minutes of video or after hours. It affects nearly all input: typing or clicking in webpages, the toolbar, the address bar, etc., though I can click the 'x' button to close tabs. When I close the final window, a dialogue will appear stating that Firefox is non-responsive and allowing me to kill the process. This seems unusual, because the OS's system monitor indicates there is plenty of unused and available RAM and CPU resources. Firefox behaves normally after restarting.

OS: Xubuntu 22.04 Firefox version: 120.0 (though previous versions have been affected for the last few months)

Hello, after updating Firefox to v.119 a couple of issues have developed that I can’t seem to resolve.

First of all the Firefox logo has disappeared from my home page. To show what I mean here are some screenshots: The 1st one shows what I see when I open the browser as normal - as can be seen I have several extensions normally in use so the 2nd image shows Firefox opened in ‘Troubleshoot’ mode.

Both these two were taken with the Privacy & Security settings set to ’Strict‘, the 3rd image shows ‘Troubleshoot ’mode with Privacy & Security set to ‘Standard’. ~~~ Now onto the subject of fonts; I’ve done some searching around and even with the Privacy & Security settings customized to ignore fingerprinting, Firefox still ignores my font-setting preference, which is FreeSerif, usually at 14 or 16pt size. Despite me unchecking the setting to allow websites to use their own fonts I cannot get any page to load using my preferred font. This causes me problems as I suffer from a particular type of astigmatism which makes san-serif fonts difficult to read.

Thanks in advance for any help offered.

I have an issue with the address bar in private windows. Normally when you click on the search bar in the new tab page, it will redirect the cursor to the address bar instead of letting you use the search bar.

I found the following solution on the forum here that works for normal windows: go to the about:config page and set browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar to false.

For private windows, this fix does not work. It will still go to the address bar instead of letting you use the search bar. Is there another way for me to fix this so that it will also work in private windows?
