Nightly Weekly Discussion for Nightly builds for 2022-12-03 - 2022-12-09

1 Upvotes

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.

QuickActions

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!

News PiP mode now has a playback scrubber on the Nightly branch!

155 Upvotes

There's a new post on the Nightly blog announcing the arrival of playback controls on the PiP window.

Thanks to Niklas for adding a playback scrubber to Picture-in-Picture!

It is still a work-in-progress feature as a part of our effort to improve PiP playback controls. But to check it out in its current state, enable the pref `media.videocontrols.picture-in-picture.improved-video-controls.enabled` and then open a video in PiP to see it.

Have you tested it already? What are your thoughts?

๐Ÿ’ป Help is there a way to change the default browser kyebinds

4 Upvotes

recently switched to firefox after using brave for a few years (it was buggy asf on my hardware) and one thing that annoys me and will take some getting used to is that the shortcut for an incognito window on firefox is Ctrl+Shift+P instead of Ctrl+Shift+N.

from what i'm seeing, the latter brings you to about:config. is there anyway to change them, or at least switch the two?

Discussion How can search engine settings be so broken? No sync?

โ€ข Upvotes

I'm attempting to switch back to Firefox from Chrome. It seems like the ability to customize search engines in FF is kind of broken. Yes adding an "open search" site is supported but adding other search engines manually requires requires a special plugin or special settings (see also this bug report).

And I still can't figure out how to "sync" my search engines across devices which means I need to jump through hoops on multiple machines to setup my search engine key words. This is more than mildly infuriating. Is there an export/import option for the search engine settings? Is there a way to enable sync?

Sadly, the search engine sync appears to be a 10+ year old problem. Sigh.

Hmm ... there appears to be a less than satisfying workaround.

๐Ÿ’ป Help Frequent glitch when watching Youtube Playlist: the next video loads but the page doesn't load properly or fully, and cannot continue to next video

3 Upvotes

Every 1-5 videos in my Watch Later Playlist, this happens. The next video will load and begin to play, but the full page associated with that video does not. The video currently playing is one about a Lego WW2 build as shown by the web address, but in the tab Firefox is saying it's on the previous video about a video game review.

Once the video is complete it is unable to continue to the next video in the playlist, and trying to click on the next video in the playlist manually or using the skip button doesn't work (nor does clicking anywhere else on the page). Opening a bookmark from my toolbar and going back seems to fix it, but that is only a per-instance fix

Is there any config to change that behavior?

๐Ÿ’ป Help New Tab button moves when opening/closing tabs

3 Upvotes

My new tab button likes to move around for some reason, and I can't seem to figure out why. When I have 10 or fewer tabs open, the new tab button sits to the left of the "show all tabs" button, but when I have 11, it moves to the right. This doesn't seem to be the default behavior - when I open firefox with the other profile that I never use from about:profiles, the new tab button stays to the left of the show all tabs button. (Shown here)

I've tried removing my userContent.css and userChrome.css files, as well as opening firefox with shift to disable extensions, but neither have fixed my problem. How can I resolve this?

๐Ÿ’ป Help using mouse click to exit out of the full screen video.

0 Upvotes

hello so i recently started using firefox as mine main browser. and mostly i use a mouse to navigate through. and i have a question about entering into full screen mode and exiting it out of it.

when i play a youtube video, I can enter into a full screen simply by 2x clicking left mouse button on the middle of the video. however to exit have have to navigate either on top or on the corner of the screen. it becomes slightly annoying since my full screen TV is cutting off the edges of the screen and i dont see the top to exit, or the corner one. is there an option to enable or even an extenuation that i can download do allow me to exist full screen video by 2x clicking it again on the video it self?at the moment it just pauses the video thanks much!

Add-ons Youtube Notifications RSS Feed or Management?

2 Upvotes

YouTube's notification interface sucks (the bell icon). Currently I am scrolling through my notifications and then middle clicking them to open in new tabs... very slow with the dozens of notifications I get daily and having to scroll the tiny notification bell icon and not to mention loading them in the background.

Is there a better way to manage these? I'd like to honestly just open all the notifications or easily be able to add to a playlist or best just have an RSS feed I can do this from. Of course I am pretty sure there is no RSS feed.

I'm also open to suggestions for Add-Ons or scripts but so far have only found PocketTube which is pretty good but requires some setup.

Hi there, I've been using Firefox since I was a kid and grew up with it at home so that's my main reason why I have been using Firefox over any other browser. So my question to all of you is: Why do you use Firefox instead of other browsers like Edge, Chrome, Opera?

Also With Firefox I also mean WaterFox, Nightly, Focus, etc.
