Whenever I try to full screen a video the first time I open the browser, the video will not completely fill the screen. It only happens on firefox and the first time I open the browser. I thought it was my extensions but it was not that. A thread was created on reddit describing the problem I have. I have linked it here. https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/rhwuvz/firefox_full_screen_on_win11_always_leaves_some/ I tried to change themes and that also did not work. Not sure what the problem is. Please help.

Browsing history - how much could it become "big" and affect Firefox performance?

Hi everybody, I never cleared my browsing history so far, because I often need to know which websites I already visited when I perform a research on Google. Having the previously visited URLs shown in a different colour is useful for my work.

However, I am wondering whether this huge amount of data could affect the browser speed and memory usage. More specifically, I have a few questions:

1) Out of curiosity, in which file of Firefox installation folder the history is saved, and where can I find it? 2) Do you think it is possible to clear ALL the browsing history, except for one specific URL? 3) Could a cluttered browsing history file affect negatively my browser performance?

Many thanks in advance for your help, Elisa

Hello fellow Firefox User,

if you stumbled upon this Question, I want to thank you for your valuable time on this maybe stupid topic. My Question: Is it possible to have multiple options for PDF files.

For Example, I want all Files from one website to be downloaded and every File, that does not come from there, to be opened in firefox. I know the option "ask every time" exists, but is there an option to not choose manually what I want?

Discord hyperlinks will no longer open when Firefox Developer Edition is selected as my default browser. They open fine in both Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Google Chrome when selected as Windows 11's default browser. When selecting my default browser it would show 2 instances of Firefox Dev but after uninstalling then reinstalling it there is only one instance in the default app list. I'm not really sure where to go from here. Maybe this is an issue with the latest version of Dev Edition or is this an issue with my Windows?

Thanks

I use IIS 10.0 (win 11) to manage a local site and Dreamweaver for web design. Well, when I try to preview a temporary page I design, Firefox does not display the images of the page nor execute some simple javascripts. It seems that I have to add an exception somewhere for the local URL (http://asmatron.blog/), as I have done with Edge, but I can't find where to.

Any help?

Random Unusual Freezing, Yet Not Unresponsive

Hello,

I've recently encountered a curious issue with my Firefox browser (Firefox version 102.0, Windows 11 Insider Preview 10.0.25145.1011). At seemingly random times it will freeze for between two and five minutes (roughly). UI elements become completely unresponsive and the cursor does not update when moving over the browser window. The window will not minimize. Yet, Windows Task Manager does not report the application as being unresponsive. While never a common problem, any freezes in the past would eventually cause the Windows Task Manager to identify it as unresponsive.

I have disabled "recommended performance settings" and hardware acceleration to no avail. Everything seems perfectly normal immediately before and after the freezes, and I've yet to identify how I can trigger them. I do not recall having made any changes to my browser before the freezes started occurring, though multiple Windows updates have taken place since then. If I'm too impatient to wait I will end the Firefox processes via Windows Task Manager and restart it so I can return to my tabs without having cookies deleted. I have 13 plugins mainly covering privacy/security concerns. Is there some sort of debug tool I can engage to see what's occupying Firefox while it's frozen? I've just found the Firefox Task Manager, and will see if it can offer any additional information during/after the freezes.

Thanks, Logan
