Hi, I am setting up a laptop for my wife to replace her old one. I have installed Firefox and found that although the main body text is the correct size, the text on the toolbars is very small compared to her old one. How can I increase the toolbar font size without altering the main body. Thank you, Andrew

After installing Firefox 84.0 (Mac), I no longer see the circular "reload page" tool on the address bar. Is this something I did, or has it really gone away? If it's gone, how do I force a page reload? If I screwed something up, any idea how I can unscrew it ;) ?

I know this is an obscure question but it would save time typing it all in each time.

I would like to create a windows shortcut to launch the profile manager like so:

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe -profilemanager" - but it says "the name specified in the target box is not valid. Make sure the filename and path are correct." It works fine without the -profilemanager part.

Maybe it would have to be a batch file I'm not sure.

I have been using Firefox for ages now, and collected a rather large number of bookmarks (>15,000) As far as I know such a number poses some issues, for instance I tried several times to use Sync but was never able to use it.

Since I am using two different machines, I tend to save my bookmarks only on the main one. When I am working on the laptop I never save bookmarks but I message them to myself (never been able to save them on my main machine, sigh) and every once in a while I "restore" bookmarks from the backup set of the main machine on the laptop. It always takes a while and oftentimes it feels like the process hangs, but so far I managed.

Today I started wondering again if there's a less frustrating and more efficient way to handle this. The question I started asking myself was: could I use the same FF profile from the laptop & the main machine? Say by saving it in the cloud?

Thanks for any hint or suggestion!

When I use Firefox on the external monitor, I set the zoom level to 150%. When I leave home a take my laptop with me, I set the zoom level to 100% to use with a smaller screen.

I want to automate setting the zoom level.

Is there a way to programmatically set the zoom level from a script? Does Firefox expose such an API / command-line tool?

Thanks!

When you search the History sidebar for a query, Firefox lists all URLs that match the query. Yet, there is no date column; nor is there any visible way to view when a certain item on the list was accessed. Is there some option that makes the search results in History more user friendly so as to show dates?

Hello,

I upgraded my FireFox to the latest version 88.0 today, and noticed some changes on right click menu. In the old version, the keyboard shortcut key is a to copy a link, but now it was changed to L. That is really inconvenient. As you know, when you right click a link using the mouse, your right hand is still holding the mouse, and not easy to press the letter L on the keyboard.

The old menu option is "Copy Link Locaton", but the new one is "Copy Link".

Is it possible to customize the keyboard shortcut of right click menu, please?

Thank you! Brian

就在刚才我随便删了两个文件(真的就是随便删的),不显示页面的火狐奇迹般正常使用了。三四个月了火狐一直打不开(具体是:可以添加新的标签页,不显示初始页面,不能进行搜索,导航栏图标只能点击不能进入下一页面,),重新安装第一次打开显示000002错误当时也懒得搜。 工作原因我重装了下火狐浏览器,发现还是不能用 我用everything 搜索了下firefox文件 随便删掉了c盘Prefetch下两个文件:FIREFOX.EXE-48B00C23 与 FIREFOX.EXE-152BFAA9 之后尝试了重新打开火狐后奇迹发现了火狐可以正常打开了!!!!!


Just now I deleted two files randomly (really deleted randomly), and Firefox, which did not display the page, miraculously worked normally. Firefox has been unable to open for three or four months (specifically: you can add a new tab page, the initial page is not displayed, you cannot search, the navigation bar icon can only be clicked and cannot enter the next page), reinstall it and open it for the first time It was too lazy to search when displaying 000002 error. For work reasons, I reinstalled the Firefox browser, and found that it still doesn’t work. I searched the firefox file with everything and deleted the two files on the c drive Prefetch: FIREFOX.EXE-48B00C23 and FIREFOX.EXE-152BFAA9 and then tried again. After opening Firefox, miraculously discovered that Firefox can be opened normally! ! ! !

Now, in the old Firefox, you used to be able to select "Email Link" to send a URL to someone by e-mail in your favorite e-mail client. I used to do that routinely, sending links via Thunderbird. I'm now using FF93.0, and all I see is "Share", which, when you point it to "Mail" it dumps you in Chrome. Now, in my FF prefs, I have specified Content Type->mailto->Use Thunderbird, so why it's dumping me in Chrome makes no sense.

How do I use Firefox to share a URL in Thunderbird like I used to be able to do?
