Firefox losing focus is usually caused by one (or more) add-on(s). This is easily tested by running Firefox in safe mode. If the problem then disappears, then one can turn off add-ons selectively, until the guilty add-on(s) is(are) found. There have been reports about the Flash add-on, and as the poster has found out, a combination of the add-ons ...

Focus may be lost if one of the tabs has a page that auto-refreshes or it tries to spawn adds/other new tabs or make any type of background action Note that Opera seems to have found a solution to counter this type of behavior since quite a few versions ago, so pages trying to do various actions cannot cause focus stealing. I have 50++ tabs open at all ...

I found the Emoji One font, which supports all the emojis up to the current Unicode version, including color emojis (by embedding SVGs or something). If the font is specified, Firefox supports the colored emojis fine: and Chrome and IE support its monochrome fallbacks: but just installing the EmojiOneColor-SVGinOT.ttf font into Windows is not ...

On OS X, you will need to point it to the relative application. For Firefox, you will want to first CD in to the Firefox.app like cd /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS, in order to get to the folder with the actual application, and then run ./firefox index.html. Since the index.html file is likely in a different folder, you will want to CD in, then ...

Is there anyway to manually install the plugin? No. You need to use 32-bit Firefox and a 32-bit JRE. Java is not supported in 64-bit Firefox.

The address starting with 192.168.x.x is internal to your network. Your browser was probably set to go there by default (check your "proxy" settings for Firefox). Another possibility is that proxy settings were changed at the system level. A possible scenario where such thing could cause this is if you installed a program (malware?) that runs some local ...

gtk-vector-screenshot isn't going to work as you expect from all apps. Some apps use a canvas and do custom drawing to that.

If the software isn't using GTK draw functions to do its rendering,...

OpenBSD has some performance problems playing videos in Firefox. This is due to the excessive use in Firefox of some slow syscalls (which are fast in Linux). Firefox developers didn't test the code on OpenBSD, so they didn't detect the problem. Use OpenBSD 5.9 or -current. Both include a temporary workaround for this problem.
