Yes, thank you. Bolding the domain would have been fine, but making the rest more difficult to read was unacceptable.

Changing the weight would have meant the length of the url would change when you clicked in the field. That's worse, in my opinion.

Nah the non-DLM version suicides too. The sooner the world sheds itself of Flash, the better. Assuming HTML5 video is more secure. About which I don't even know what I'm talking about.

As terrible as Flash is, places like youtube have a long way to go before HTML5 video becomes a worthwhile alternative. in terms of performance and functionality.

The geolocation stuff that Firefox is capable of is pretty startling. I've seen services using my IP address get within about twenty kilometres of my house, but somehow Google Maps was able to locate me pretty much exactly.

Are there any known issues with Firefox and AMD drivers? I updated mine and now the text in the address bar and tab titles is all weird and unpleasant.

How's the WebGL performance in the upcoming versions of Firefox? I tried that experimental version of Google Maps with 9 and it felt like the screen was 90% aliased edges.

I saw a couple articles mention that in 10.0, the forward button only shows up when you hit back. I just updated, and my forward button is there regardless of where I am in the history of that tab.

Do you have any buttons between the 'forward' button and the location bar? If so, it'll stay around.

Nope, this is what it looks like on my end:

Alright, I'm an idiot. My brain ignored the words location bar because I always call it the address bar. Looks pretty, but I'm not giving up on my reload button or moving it to the left.

You might be able to hide certain sites from popping up in the new tab page, but if he's really worried about his personal info being visible to people who he's letting use his PC, then wouldn't their ability to press Ctrl-H and bring up his entire browsing history be a bigger problem?

The worst part is that it also traps media keys. If I'm watching a youtube video, I need to click out of Firefox to mute or change the volume using my keyboard. It's really fun when you click play, forgetting your speakers are turned up and the sound comes blasting out at ridiculous levels and you scramble for the mute button or volume dial and nothing happens.

Yeah, I'm experiencing all of this, plus frequent plugin crashes (11.3 r300 error popup messages).

You could set plugins.click_to_play to true, but that would work on everything, including flash or quicktime or whatever else you have installed. That wouldn't stop Java from re-enabling itself, but Firefox wouldn't actually load the plugin without your consent.

Did Firefox 17 change the default behaviour of alt+mousewheel scrolling?

I found these settings in about:config, but I don't know what values need to be applied to get it to the way I like. Can anyone help?

mousewheel.with_alt.delta_multiplier_z
mousewheel.with_alt.delta_multiplier_y
mousewheel.with_alt.delta_multiplier_x
mousewheel.with_alt.action

e: a mistaken sync option seems to be at fault. I have no idea why a NoScript button being added next to the navigation buttons would change the way they look so drastically, though.

I don't know if this is a Firefox issue or a forums issue, but I'm getting this issue with click-to-play Flash elements embedded with the [video] tag. It doesn't happen every time, and I can refresh the frame until Firefox notices things properly, but it's still annoying.

I've noticed with 20.0 that the first time I open a link in a new window after having closed a private window, that new window will have two tabs. Sometimes the extra tab is blank, other times, it's a random page from my browsing history.

Its not so much fixing an issue as it is turning off hardware acceleration to avoid the corrupted rendering that was going on.

It would be nice if the browser could scan a user's about:config the first time after the patch and point them to the replacement add-on if it saw that they had the 'hide the tab bar' flag turned on. Savvy people might know about the change ahead of time, but the moms and dads of the internet who customized their interface years ago probably wouldn't even know where to start looking if their browser changed itself like that on them.

I like the flexibility of the stock behavior. You can hit Alt-Enter to open the URL or search string in a new tab, or just the regular Enter to use the current tab.

For reference, here are some useful shortcuts:

Cycle tab pages: Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDown

I like Ctrl-Tab and Ctrl-Shift-Tab for that.

There's also Ctrl-Shift-T to reopen a tab you'd closed and Ctrl-Shift-N to re-open a window you'd closed.

I wish there was a little more contrast on the background tabs. When I have more than one tab from the same site open, it feels harder than it should be to read and find the right one.

I've noticed that seeking in HTML5 videos is far worse than it was with Flash Youtube. I also had a video's audio randomly cut out until I skipped back far enough and then forward enough.
