UI scale changing after Youtube fullscreen

(sorry for my english)

I recently uprgraded Firefox from 102.0.1 to 109.0.1. UI went bigger, but I already searched that I had to create ui.textScaleFactor and set to 100 in about:config and to change browser.display.os-zoom-behavior to 0.

After these changes UI went normal again. Except one case: when I go to youtube and go fullscreen, then when I go back from fullscreen, my UI is going to bigger again - despite ui.textScaleFactor is 100 and browser.display.os-zoom-behavior is 0.

I need to restart Firefox and after restarting everyhing is normal (UI is not big).

The problem is: UI is going to bigger after youtube fullscreen and I need to restart the browser to go back to normal.

Hi!

Although it may be that what I am seeking exists, I have looked for, but have not found, detailed information on filter actions within Thunderbird.

There was a discussion on this website in which someone seemingly indicated that the "Stop Filter Execution" action only stops the execution of the given filter, not other filters.

I am not sure of the scope that was intended for that comment. It would seem that while processing a particular piece of E-Mail, all that would be necessary to stop executing a particular filter, would be to not include an additional filter action. If I understand correctly, when the last filter action is complete in a given filter, that filter will not execute any more in connection with the current piece of E-Mail being processed. If instead, what was intended was that "Stop Filter Execution" will prevent that filter from being applied to any pieces of E-Mail to be processed within the current collection of E-Mail being retrieved, that would be nice to know.

I have a collection of filters, which if the filter's conditions are met, the filter will move the piece of E-Mail to a particular folder. In most cases, I don't want other filters which would normally be run after that filter, to be run against the piece of E-Mail which was moved.

So if there is a simple way to accomplish that, I would greatly appreciate knowing about it.

This is a very recent issue for me. A couple of days ago "tel:" links stopped functioning. I click on a callable link and nothing happens. I checked default applications, and tel: isn't even listed there. The first time it happened there was a dialogue box asking me what application to use, but after that nothing opened at all. I build and monitor websites, so I'm constantly checking these links for functionality.

I recently updated my system (OpenSuse15.4) which included a Firefox update to version 109.0.

I regularly use my mic for google voice, however even though I can select my microphone in Google voice, It never shows any input.

I tested my mic in other apps and it works fine. When I pull up my systems pulse audio volume control (pavucontrol), it does not show firefox in the recording tab like it used to when using Google Voice.

To test to see if it was a Google Voice error, I also tried testing my mic at https://mictests.com/, and zoom.com, but after selecting my desired input device, mictests.com was also unable to record anything, and again, pavucontrol did not show anything being recorded.

I have attached an image of pavucontrol that shows audacity recording audio. Normally, I would also see Firefox in this window when using the mic.

I am running Linux Mint 20.3 Cinnamon. When installed through the Mint Software Manager, Firefox comes with the DisableAppUpdates policy enabled, which is meant to disable automatic updates. This suits me just fine, as I prefer to update Firefox manually as new versions are released rather than have them pushed on me. However, I've found that Firefox does update automatically. In fact, because of the policy, I am unable to prevent it from updating automatically. As you can see in the included screenshots, I am running the most recent version of Firefox (released today), despite updates being ostensibly disabled. I cannot find a way to disable the policy or prevent the automatic updates.

Why is this happening, and how can I stop it?

It keeps asking me to UPDATE and I keep clicking DISMISS. I want to turn off update checking. I keep asking for this feature to be restored, and no one is listening. It seems to me that what we want as users no longer matters anymore. I DO NOT WANT Firefox TO CHECK FOR UPDATES. I don't like being nagged.

     We're sorry, an error occurred while accessing this site. Please try again later.
 I can login using Edge browser. It is happening in last couple of days.

In November of 2020, I was forced by ATT to stop using Thunderbird as my email client, for both incoming & outgoing email. ATT changed its security protocols, and that required that I begin (at that time) using ATT's (pathetic) email client.

I have used the very clumsy, very limited ATT / YAHOO email client ever since... and, hated every minute of it.

I had previously used Thunderbird for 10-20 years, literally, and I loved the dynamic functionality which Thunderbird offered.

Since then, I have hated my ATT / YAHOO email experience, and I would like to start using Thunderbird again, if that is possible, considering the ATT security protocols.

Can anyone help me ?

I started a new job last year and I have been using Thunderbird to monitor multiple email accounts. it is a really great product.

I have had to deal with one "feature" for my entire career with this software and that is the behavior of the windows when I reply to a message; each time I go to reply it minimizes each other window.

When this first happened I thought for sure this is toggleable! I must've spent an hour going over each option multiple times before emerging completely defeated. I thought certainly this is a bug right? No way would anyone purposefully set such an inane feature as the only option for one of the most utilized features of Email?? NO! It's working as intended!

I'm going to save the rant on how this is a massive blow to an otherwise overall pleasant user experience and jump straight to my point. I'm not a native Windows user and I don't know how to solve this but certainly someone else does or at least agrees with me that this is stupid and whoever put it in should never be allowed to make choices alone when it comes to this field ever again (you should be ashamed!)

Please help!

Greetings...

I am using Windows 10 / Firefox v109.0.

I use the Screenshot feature virtually every day and find its availability extremely valuable. Unfortunately, I have noticed that the Screenshot feature appears not to work when I am on the HomeDepot website. While the "scissors" icon appears at the customary upper right location, when I select it, nothing happens. Multiple clicks on the scissors icon - nothing happens. Regardless of the webpage that I am viewing on the HomeDepot website, I am unable to create a screen capture of the webpage contents.

The above has been the case for some time now, so it's not specifically associated with my current version of Firefox. I have experienced this same problem when visiting the Lowes.com website. However, I have used other e-commerce websites (Staples, Best Buy, Wegmans, etc.) and have been able to use the Screenshot feature without difficulty.

Any idea why the Screenshot feature does not work on select websites, such as I have described above? Please advise. Thank you!

I have been using Firefox for many years. Suddenly I cannot get any sound from videos in Facebook, YouTube or anywhere. The settings in Privacy --> Permissions --> Autoplay are set to "Allow Audio and Video". There is nothing wrong with the computer as I can play videos and sound files on it with no problem. Sound is no problem on Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge. It is just Firefox that after years of use the sound as stopped working. Can anybody help?

I had two Firefox windows open in the past hour, and accidentally closed the one I was using, and then closed the other as well to try to tidy the situation without realizing I could only access the most recent closure. Unfortunately, Firefox will only open the most recent session to be closed, so I can't access the 30+ folders that i need to restore from the first window. I am a non-technical person currently in hospital. Can anyone help?
