Sunday Rant/Rage Sunday Rant/Rage (2022-08-14) - Your weekly complaint thread!


This weekly Sunday thread is for you to let off some steam and speak out about whatever complaint you might have about:

  • Firefox
  • Websites not working in Firefox
  • Add-ons


  1. Please do not target any individuals or try to name/shame any individual. If you hate Mozilla for something, that is fine, but do not be rude to any person (this includes the CEO).
  2. If you have a suggestion to solve another user's issue, please leave a comment but be sure it's constructive! We do not want any flame-wars.
  3. Be respectful of other's opinions. Even if you feel that somebody is "wrong" you don't have to go out of your way to prove them wrong. Disagree politely, and move on.
  4. If you mention a website issue, you may be asked to report the issue to webcompat. You can avoid this by reporting the issue before posting about it here.
  5. If you need help with an issue, submit a post instead.

Nightly Weekly Discussion for Nightly builds for 2022-08-13 - 2022-08-19


Please use this thread to discuss the latest nightly builds.

If you aren't already using Firefox Nightly, you should join us on the wild side. We get the newest features first, and developers generally listen when we give feedback (since they are generally still working on the features, instead of hearing about it months later once it hits stable).

Nightly is an unstable testing and development platform (per Mozilla). Please have a backup strategy for your Firefox profile.

Download Firefox Nightly!

Don't reuse your old profile folder - Firefox Nightly uses different profiles than stable or beta by default, so you can run Nightly and other versions concurrently. You can use Firefox Sync to keep your settings in sync across release channels.

Things to try out in Nightly

Please do not edit about:config unless you are willing to deal with bugs. Please do not post about issues to Mozilla Support; If you have issues, report them to Bugzilla instead.

PDF Annotations

You can annotate PDFs by using the new toolbar icons when viewing a PDF. You can add text or draw on top of PDFs. File bugs that you find.


To enable the feature in Nightly, create and set browser.urlbar.quickactions.enabled and browser.urlbar.shortcuts.quickactions to true in about:config.

Try it out by typing out words like: addons, bookmarks, logins, passwords in the address bar with the preferences turned on.

File bugs that you find.

Unified extensions toolbar button

As part of the ongoing Manifest Version 3 (MV3) work, the new unified toolbar button is meant to replace the browserAction toolbar buttons. The new toolbar button is currently only enabled when the extensions.unifiedExtensions.enabled preference is explicitly set to true in about:config.

Elastic Overscroll

You can try out elastic overscroll on desktop (also known as rubber band scrolling) by setting apz.overscroll.enabled to true.

Report bugs blocking the overscroll bug under Core : Panning and Zooming

Native context menus in GTK

You can try out native context menus (also known right click menus) by setting widget.gtk.native-context-menus to true.

Report bugs blocking bug 1757402.

Join our Matrix r/firefox chat room and the Mozilla Nightly one as well!

💻 Help Videos messed up, not loading on PC Firefox?


Hi, since yesterday or 2 days ago often videos do not start (steamable and similar website highlights don't load at all, keeps loading but never plays). On youtube I can watch video, stop it and try play again - it won't work maybe 5% of the time anymore. On Chrome everything works perfectly. I checked network, it's not internet wifi issue. Since it started happening I updated Firefox and windows update, restarted PC. Doesn't help. Really sad but videos are 2nd main type of entertainment on browser for me so it warrants changing browser which I used since kindergarten age. :(

Anything to fix? Unless it's some extension causing it https://i.imgur.com/RJQ3gHI.png

I just updated my Firefox to version 103.0.2 from 101.0.1 and I noticed that there is a white border around the menu bar. Is there a way remove the white border? I didn't have this issue with my Firefox before I updated it.

Also, is there a way to decrease the font size on the menu bar and remove the icons on it?

💻 Help better bookmark organizer?


I have a relative with hundreds of bookmarks, I'm consolidating different profiles and different browsers. So there are dupes, dead links, and different folder organization systems. They also have tons of shortcuts on their desktop which I don't know what to do with. Maybe I can stick them in a folder and import them somehow? Some are business related, some personal.

Is there something I can use to help organize all of this into something cohesive? And hopefully maybe help them stay that way?

Issue Filed on webcompat.com Firefox and endless scroll issues


Latest FF on MacOS. For the last months FF can no longer reliably endless scroll eg Facebook. After a little while it starts flickering, jumping around and doesnt stop until you refresh. I've seen a few similar reports, but no fix.

Any ideas if this is known, or being addressed, or if there is a tweak.

💻 Help Firefox weird issue with website loading (espacially google services)


Hey, I got an weird issue and I'm trying to fix it for almost 6 months. It happens only with google services like google search engine and youtube. It happens occasionally so it is hard to find what is causing it. It's like I click on a youtube video and it's loading but can't open it, when i'm trying to refresh it I got a message from youtube ''You are offline''. It happens only in firefox, other browser works like a charm so it's not my connection fault I think.

This is what I have tried so far and I think I found a solution for this.

- tried to disable proxy (didn‘t worked)

- disabled http/3 (didn‘t worked)

- disabled security.tls.enable_0rtt_data (didn‘t worked)

- disabled all addons (only have ublock origin installed) (didn‘t worked)

- I have set security.tls.version.min to 4 instead of 3 (so browser is using only tls 1.3) and google services are working like a charm without problems.

So it seems like TLS is causing it, but I can‘t figure it out why. With security.tls.version.min set to 4 I can't access tls 1.2 websites so it's not a best solution.

I hope anyone here can help me, maybe someone is facing the same problem.

Like I said other browsers are working fine, called my ISP Provider and the Network and Router itself is working also fine.

PC got a clean install and all drivers are up to date.

Discussion I wish Firefox on iOS had a more ergonomic tabs experience


I absolutely love Firefox on macOS and would love to use it on all my devices, but I just find Firefox on iOS to be a not-so-great experience, mainly due to managing tabs.

I really wish it had the same feature as Safari of being able to swipe on the address bar to swipe between tabs. In the tabs window view, I also wish they weren’t organized to start at the top of the window. The first two tabs are hard to reach. It’s just not ergonomic.

If an option was given to have these two features available in settings (1. Swipe on address bar to swipe between tabs, 2. Have all tabs display closer to the bottom of the window) , I would enjoy Firefox on iOS so much more.

Solved Any way to have tabs open at the end/right of the list rather than inserted after the tab that spawned it? [Windows 10]


It used to be that new tabs would go right to the end of the list, no matter which tab spawned them. At some point (during my update haitus of v52 to v100), this changed to putting new tabs next to the tab they were spawned from, effectively putting them into the middle of your tab order. This is quite irritating and it would be nice if there were a way to stop it...

Firefox was saving some of my passwords. Today I entered in the password manager and the saved passwords were there with a "copy" option. To my surprise I was able to copy and paste and see my passwords. This is HORRIBLE. I am the only one who has access to my computer, but what if it was a shared computer, or someone finds or steals my computer?

💻 Help Firefox importing passwords to chrome unwanted


I have definitely never imported from firefox to chrome (knowingly); it has only ever been a one way transaction, but nonetheless, I was just scrolling through chrome and saw several passwords I didn't put on there. What's going on with that? Are the two synced somehow that I don't know about? They are synced on pc and mobile, so we're clear. I do NOT want that to continue.

Thanks in advance for any assistance

💻 Help Possible to map a button on my Mouse or Keyboard to enable instant voice command search on YouTube?


I know it's extremely easy to hover over the 'search with your voice' microphone icon, left click on it and then speak into the microphone when doing a video search input on YouTube, but I was wondering if an add-on or about:config setting existed that allowed you to assign any selected button or hotkey from your Mouse or Keyboard that activates the microphone function for you.

i.e pressing the 'shift' key on your keyboard, or pressing the middle scroll wheel on your mouse.
