Hello. I use developer's version of ff for a few weeks (currently on 107.0b2). I recently decided to switch back to stable version 106. However, when I run it it says

``` Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox. ```

So, how do I move from developer's version back to stable without losing anything?

(OS: debian 11, if it matters)

Please allow me to preface with I do not know how to code at all and I have found some options to make the scroll bar disappear, but with coding, and I'm hoping for an option that takes that away easily.

I don't think it is any of my extensions causing this, and I don't think it's an option in Firefox to remove the scroll bar.

Please help if possible! It doesn't disappear even when I'm watching videos on fullscreen.

Thank you.

Hi

Trying to make sync work the way I want. Initial question:

I've synced tabs between Windows desktop and Android. Now I would like to bookmark all those tabs in the desktop browser, without opening them first. I've found out how to view them in the side bar, but I see no option to bookmark all tabs.

It would be nice to have synced Tabs in the Library window and Options panel.

Prior to the last update, Firefox was auto resizing my tab background area (I don't know the technical name of this, but its the menu area behind the tabs) to fit more tabs as I opened them, up to a certain number of open tabs. Now the tab background area remains at its full size from the start even if I have only 1 tab open. I prefer the old behavior and I'm not sure what userchrome setting I need to adjust in order to get back to it. The line that is causing the issue is as follows

  1. main-window {
 /*--tab-min-height: unset !important; */
 --tab-min-height: 38px;
 --tabs-lines: 8;     /* THIS LINE CAUSES THE PROBLEM */
 --tab_min_width_mlt: 186px;
 --tab_max_width_mlt: 186px;
 --tab-min-height_mlt: 38px;

}

I can reduce it to a lower number but when I do that I am stuck with the tab scrolling behavior that I don't want. Perhaps there is a setting to auto resize the tab area that I'm unaware of. I would appreciate any assistance. Thanks.

Hi,

I have today logged in to a specific webpage on my energy providers website and find that Firefox does NOT display the option to open a chat which is clearly displayed in the Chrome Browser (Screenshots attached).

I have navigated to "Settings/Privacy & Security", scrolled down to "Permissions" and can confirm that the "Block pop-up windows" option is NOT enabled.

I am obviously missing a setting somewhere, can anyone advise?

Thanks

Disable the built-in PDF viewer and use another viewer

You can also set a different third-party PDF viewer to handle PDF files, instead of Firefox’s built-in PDF viewer. To switch from using the built-in PDF viewer to another viewer: 1. Click the menu button and select . 2. In the panel, go down to the Applications section. (SO WHERE IN THE HELL IS THIS SECTION???) YOU CAN'T DO I never selected Mozilla to open any pdf and there's no where to opt out or change based on what all the troubleshooting tips say... All these tips must be located on a much older version of Firefox cause they ain't in my version OR they are hid under some dubious section... Pretty frustrating....when you want to use Adobe and can't cause I'm locked in under Firefox....don't know how that has happened unless it was done automatically under one of the many current upgrades that have been coming down over the last month.

Hi,

Before updating Firefox yesterday, I was able to see my 2 bookmarks folders in the Firefox toolbar. Now after updating, I need to click a button with 2 chevrons pointing right which then shows me only 1 of my bookmarks folders.

There are actually 2 folders in here, which I can see if I go to the Bookmarks menu, but clicking the chevron button only shows a single folder. However the problem is that up until yesterday, those folders were right in the toolbar itself without any chevron button.

Has there been a change in the latest version? I don't see anything about this in the release notes.

Thanks,

- Tate

I have reinstalled Windows 10 in a new computer, installed a fresh copy of Firefox, and successfully imported my bookmarks from the original computer. But I cannot discover how to export and import my bookmarks toolbar. Another user has attempted to answer the question, but the description is very ambiguous and I can't understand it: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1266729. The following "official" page also does not deal with the issue: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Sorting_and_rearranging_bookmarks_-_Firefox. I would have expected that there would be an "Import or Export Bookmarks Toolbar" facility somewhere, maybe under Menu | Bookmarks | Bookmarks Toolbar - but no luck. Could an explanation be provided?

I have Firefox 107.0b5 (64-bits) Snap for Ubuntu canonical-002 - 1.0 I use Ubuntu Mainline to update to newer kernels. Never had any problem doing that. I am now on 5.19.15. But when I upgrade to kernel 6 (which is now at 6.0.5) Firefox tabs crash. Reloading doesn't help. Each new tab I open gives the same crash message. I have to restart to get Firefox going again. So I removed kernel 6 and reverted back to kernel 5.19 and have no problems any more. But question, what is the problem between kernel 6 and firefox? Does anybody else experience this problem?

I have no other problems with kernel 6 with other programs or hardware or whatever, only firefox tabs crash...

'Read aloud' function: how to organize it for my html files?

In Firefox I see and can use the button 'On|Off read mode F9' on this page, where I write the question.

But when I open my page, this button is absent and F9 doesn't work. (for example, this one: http://accelerometers.000webhostapp.com/ ) Also I want to get 'Read aloud' possibility for txt files (I edited them and save as html files) What should be done to provide this possibility?

Note: in MS Edge my html files are read aloud.

When loading a page from a domain I haven't recently visited, it will almost always return the "Server Not Found - Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site," error message. If I reload the page, however, it will load. Sometimes I have to reload 2-6 times before it works, but it always eventually succeeds. When it does work, it often times fails to load certain elements like fonts, images, embedded videos, and occasionally whole stylesheets--things that often require calls to third party domain. Again, reloading the page (sometimes multiple times) will cause the page to load properly.

I have already tried:

  • Different browsers on same computer (issue does not occur)
  • Firefox on different computers with different OS on same network (issue does not occur)
  • Cleared cache (issue persists)
  • Troubleshooting/safe mode (issue persists)
  • Deleted prefs file (issue persists)
  • Disabled DNS prefetching (issue persists)

I am currently having problems with my Firefox browser. For example often if I type something into the google search box at the right of the address bar and hit return nothing happens until I go down and select Bing instead of the google setting. Also in hotmail (I am on a desktop) if I go to reply, the original is now ether twice. This does not happen if I use Google browser. But I prefer Firefox as I have used it for years.

My concern is if I delete Firefox and reinstall it, I may lose some of the settings or bookmarks that I have set over the years.

Any suggestions? Please simple as i am old and not computer savvy.

Your help would be so appreciated. I am currently on Firefox 107.0 (64 bit)

Thanks, Anthony

tell me whether i can find a window i closed today having multiple tabs, using "history" and recently closed tabs/windows (both). i especially want to be able to restore the tab for Institute for the Study of War and its companions. i hope you are warm and rested.


to do my regular research, i have lost three or four (or more) windows with multiple tabs, as a result of my reorganizing tabs. i think of each window with one of its tabs, so these would be, "Emma Loop" (which includes all federal court districts tabs and related info); "Kyle Griffin" (which includes various journalist/news tabs); "emptywheel" (which includes various journalist/news tabs); and other such similar windows whose name ID i don't remember.

restore scares me because it will apply to bookmarks.

i recently began migrating from twitter to mastadon, and wanted to add my regular tabs to mastadon. i moved tabs to keep track, but it seems the tab's parent windows disappeared. i cannot be more clear, because i had a total of about 15 windows with multiple tabs EACH. i regularly exited the program to install updates and because of my settings, all the windows/tabs were saved correctly. this is a great feature.

it takes time to create a window with multiple tabs, and i don't have much of a brain, so it's hard for me to learn new stuff. maybe we can work together to clarify what i need. i just want my "lost" windows/tabs to return to the others so i can continue going forward. i blame this guy - the "new twitter owner" - who has even made changes to UKRAINIANS' account performances. thank you.

In FF 107.0 (64-bit) on Windows 11, I'm finding that FF is suddenly not honoring my color profile, so everything looks over-saturated. I've tried using gfx.color_management.mode 1 (my typical setting) and 2 (the default), and neither seems to fix the issue. The same issue exists in a fresh profile. I'd roll back to test an earlier version of FF, but it seems that's no longer easily possible. Edge is displaying colors properly.

Any ideas or known bugs?
