Hello to everybody :o)

several websites, i.e. YouTube, Facebook and Google, detect the actual version of Firefox despite the fact I set a different version number (more recent) by means of the "User Agent Switcher" plugin.

So my question is twofold:

1) how can I change the "fingerprint" of my Firefox effectively, in order to make *any* website recognize the version number which I set (and not the real one)?

2) how those websites do detect the ACTUAL identity of a given browser, despite the changes to the User Agent string that one may have made by means of a switcher?

Thank you in advance to all you folks!

I have two PC's I have Firefox on both and I have some time in the past set up sync as from the firefox (top left) icon it has listed 'sync now'

What I would like to know is what exactly gets synced !

When clicking 'Sync Now', is this an upload or a download from the PC ?

If a download then how do you do an upload of changes and if a download how do you do an upload of changes from either PC.

I am totally confused how it works please explain as my two PC's only seem to have been synced once after the first time I joined them with the code !

Hello,

I just switched to Firefox and so far I've been the setting up process has been going smoothly. I've almost got the browser exactly how I want it to.

I am missing one last feature that I would really like to have; the ability to minimize and maximize Firefox with the use of my keyboard instead of having to rely on my mouse so I can switch between screens more fluently.

I don't know of there's an option available in Firefox itself or if there's already a combination of keys that do just that or if there's an Addon I can use. Any advice is therefor more than welcome.

I keep getting messages to sign in or sync and when I follow the links it says open authenticator app and put in some code.

I do not have an authenticator app on Windows 10 PC - what is this all about, please?

I must have been using Mozilla products for about 15 years but they are getting slicker and I am getting dumber - should I pack up and go back to Internet Explorer or even use Microsoft EDGE?

I have a Firefox and when accessing a domian that times out sometimes very fast.

The types of timeout (about:config) are not described there. Is there a description?

And is there a list of other "connection error problems" that FF is displaying (like "Server not found", ...) and what is the reason for them?

Hi! Chrome based browsers (like chromium or Vivaldi) permit to obtain 96KHz or even 192KHz float 32bit audio output. Firefox stuck at float32le 48KHz. This is not sufficient for me. i have a Linux LinuxMint 20 on a STRIX Z270G audio chip @ 96KHz and headsets like Sennheiser HD650 and GRADO RS1e so able to perfectly perceive the effects of harmonics up to frequency my chip can produce (96KHz band pass).

Question: Is possible in Firefox 78 for Linux to change the max frequency from 48KHz to 96KHz maintaining the float32le setup?

Thank you to all advices!

Hi, I use firefox as main browser for developing and I got problem with its cache.

changes in code are not visible automatically, firefox keeps files in chache. So it happens, that I make some change and it takes long time, when the effect show. I am now compensating it by Test pilot Containers modules, but it is not much comfortable, to have one page loaded 5 times and after any small change trying to refresh all tabs, if some of them will reload propertly.

Also, I know the CTRL+F5 and CTRL+SHIFT+R shortcuts, but it does nothing. It will not do the clean reload, it again takes cached files.

So, any other shortcut/way, how to force a tab to get purely loaded from server?

Thanks :)

As of a few months ago I had 5 Firefox shortcuts pinned to my Windows 10 taskbar. One pointed to plain old Firefox and opened to my default home page, the other four pointed to specific websites a la this archived thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1170305 I could add and remove them as I pleased and have as many as I wanted. It was fantastic--one click access to my most frequented sites.

In January 2018 two of the pinned taskbar icons to specific sites disappeared. I'm not sure why only those two, and I can't re-pin them. Here's an example of the problem: 1) I create two new desktop shortcuts that respectively point to: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -url https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -url https://calendar.google.com/calendar/r?tab=mc For convenience I also change their icons. 2) I try clicking and dragging the Gmail shortcut to the taskbar but Windows won't let me pin it 3) I right click the Gmail shortcut but the option in the menu is to "Unpin from taskbar". Clicking that unpins the plain old pinned Firefox shortcut from my taskbar. 4) I right click the Gmail shortcut again and this time I have the option to "Pin to taskbar". I click it and it works! hurray. 5) I right click the Google Calendar shortcut and it says "Unpin from taskbar". Clicking that unpins the Gmail shortcut...

Basically, it's as if Windows recently became aware that all of these are Firefox shortcuts and is forcing me to choose at most 1 Firefox shortcut to pin.

All 5 shortcuts--including the two that disappeared--are all still in the pinned-to-taskbar Windows folder: C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar

Any workarounds out there?

Whenever i press control, the screen zooms out, text shrinks. this is only in firefox, internet explorer still requires me to press control and plus or minus. in addition, if i press shift while in a text box in firefox, such as to type a capitol letter while writting this, the browser goes "back". i am using an onscreen keyboard to get by this. it doesn't matter which key i press in combination with shift, the browser goes back. these problems are only in firefox. ive restarted the brower, updated to most recent version, and restarted the computer. no keys are stuck and the mouse is working with fresh batteries. what can this be?

I just switched to Firefox from Chrome and so far Im loving it, except for one tiny bit, which unfortunatly drives me crazy:

When I use the search from the adress bar to look up functions with dots '.' in them, Firefox always assumes these are websites, add 'www.' and takes me to ' Site could not be loaded' instead of using google to search.

Is there any way to change this behaviour in the adress bar?
