Hi there,

I have a laptop running Windows 10, plus the latest version of Firefox. The laptop has a built-in webcam. I have also connected an external webcam via USB. This second camera is better quality and preferred, I visit a web site. When I first activate the camera, I am presented with a dropdown of available cameras. The USB camera appears in the list. All is fine. I instruct Firefox to "allow" this camera to be used. (first image) However, after a short time, less than a second, the same dialog is shown again, this time without the USB camera. (second image) There have been no actual hardware changes. I can then click "allow" again and the *integrated* camera works, i.e. not the desired camera. So, two questions, really. First, what just happened? Did Firefox try to control the USB camera, find that it couldn't, and redisplay the dialog showing only the "controllable" option? Second, my desired endpoint here is for the web site to use the USB camera. How do I achieve this? I can easily do this with Chrome but I like Firefox. TIA.

A feature for editing PDF files has recently been added to the released code. I cannot find comprehensive documentation for it. If such exists, a pointer would be appreciated.

Here is the specific problem with which I am struggling. I am marking up a converted web page (Waze) with the tool with the pencil icon. That starts out OK. However, after a while, it gets into a mode in which it thinks I am trying to select some of my previous markings. Once a box has been selected all I can do is move the content or delete it. I do not want to do that. I want to make new marks nearby. It seems to be impossible. The only way I have managed to get around the problem is to save the PDF to a file and then reload it. But that only lasts for a while until it gets back into the mode in which it thinks I am trying to select some of my new marks.

I don't know what is getting it into the selection mode or how to get out once there. There are no clues in the menu. I could use the mode at times for removing marks, so I do also want to know how to get into it.

Help would be much appreciated.

My Firefox refuses to load MetaCPAN's OpenSearch.xml file, even though I can access it without problems.

So this got me thinking, as Opensearch files are relatively easy to write, is it possible to import my own opensearch.xml into Firefox?

If it's impossible, I'll submit a ticket to bugzil.la.

I change the default action for e.g. mime type PDF to a bash script. - works I get the filename of the downloaded pdf file in my bash script - works I can do things with this downloaded file - works

But can I get the download URL of this file in my script? It's not a dedicated URL in a tab - so I can not read the URL of the active tab.

It's a direct download link from, let' say, google search.

What do I have to do to get the URL of the downloaded file in a bash script?

Thank you in advanced!

Windows 10 crashed and I had to re-set. Afterwards I had to re-install Firefox browser. Now, when I click on the Firefox icon, Bing opens instead. I dislike Bing and have tried everything I can think of in Settings to get it to open to the Firefox page. No luck. Any EZ suggestions. I'm not terribly technical, so please provide easy step-by-step instructions. Thanks. BTW, tried changing through HOME icon, that didn't work either.

Using FF 108.0.2 (64-bit) in Debian 11 Linux,I need to view http://www3.winsystem.org/monitor/webmonitor.php but my new laptop is very high resolution. I can control the text size with Ctrl+ but the background gif image of a small window with bogus scrollbar needs to be made larger somehow so that the white text can be read against the black portion of the image.

Is there some way to enlarge the gif image, please?

Why doesn't Firefox Browser have collections? I have both Firefox in Beta and Firefox Browser on my Android cell phone, but I prefer using Firefox Browser, although I do like the collections feature from Firefox in Beta.

Does anyone know the reason?
