I know the ID attribute value of the element I want to find but I can't find a way to go to it. Ctrl+F searches the parsed code/page, the "search HTML" textbox between the tabs and the HTML code doesn't seem to do anything even though I can see the string in the code, and I can't find the "magnifying glass icon on the far right of the Breadcrumbs row". How can I search for a string in the actual code?

Thanks in advance.

Chromebook, Firefox for Linux. Display issues: Titlebar, Borders

I'm using Firefox 88.0.1 for Linux on a Chromebook running OS Ver. 91.... which uses Linux 5.4.109-26059-gc7455b8ce0e0 right now - but started on Ver. 88 or something and… (read more)

I'm using Firefox 88.0.1 for Linux on a Chromebook running OS Ver. 91.... which uses Linux 5.4.109-26059-gc7455b8ce0e0 right now - but started on Ver. 88 or something and whatever version of Linix that used. Anybody know why I can't turn the title bar off and why the screen rendering generally looks a bit flaky? I'm guessing it has something to do with the display manager that Google use and that it's not responding any of the Firefox settings. I've tried all the easy stuff like the title bar check box and other settings in about::config

Any ideas?

Recently switched from Chrome to Firefox on macOS, and I'd always open PDFs directly in Chrome. I've set my default PDF viewer to Firefox but when I open any downloaded PDFs from Finder, they go directly to a new Firefox window instead of a new tab (as I'm used to from Chrome).

Any way around this? I'd love to have any offline PDFs to be opened in a new tab by default, but nothing has worked so far.

Because of the location where I live, most of google services are blocked on the internet. Yesterday I wanted to download a device driver from www.m-audio.com but the driver's page stopped loading. I noticed a message at the bottom left of the Firefox window saying "waiting for www.google.com" or something similar. Because of that wait, I could open the page only after 4 tries and waiting way too much time. Can I filter page contents from google so Firefox skips them?

I run Firefox with multiple profiles, as there are several people that use this computer. I start firefox with -p <profilename> -no-remote.

This all works fine except if I'm in try to open a link from for instance in an email, I click on the link and it opens the profile manager. If I select a profile that already has an open window I get an error message stating

"Firefox cannot use the profile "Rick" because it is in use. To continue, close the running instance of Firefox or choose a different profile."

Is there anyway to have it open the link in a new tab of an already running profile, rather then having to close the profile and then click the link.

I just updated to the newest Firefox. I'm sad that the google toolbar is no longer supported. But I'll soldier on... <big sigh>.

Seriously though: The function I miss from google toolbar is the drop down menu in the search bar, allowing me to 'drop down' and reselect a previous search phrase... what can I say, I'm scatter brained and easily distracted, so I often return to a concept multiple times a week.

How can I emulate the same function in FF 17?

In the (now closed) thread:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/814310#answer-174482

It recommends: "Go into the options and untick the double click to translate box" for "Google Dictionary and Translate 2.5 add-on"

... but does not explain how to get to the options. I am not sure, in fact, that this is the solution.

I have "Easy Google Translate (3.1)" ... but this is already disabled. I don't see any other Google Translate add-on installed at this time, per: "about:addons" ... I also searched "about:config" for "Translate" and didn't find Google Translate their either.

am I looking in the right place, or is there another solution?

Hope someone knows the answer...

Thanks in advance.

I don't have a question, just a suggestion for others with a similar issue.

I recently upgraded to FF 17.0. I also tried a couple of new extensions because my old ones were incompatible. It seems that one of the new extensions installed Ask.com on any New Tabs that I opened. I searched for a fix and could only come up with

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/837470

I started FF in Safe Mode with everything disabled and it still happened. I removed all the new extensions and it still happened.

Finally, I figured something out that DID work. If you are having a similar problem, try this:

Type "about:config" into the address bar.

Type "ask" into the Search bar.

Find the following entry:

browser.newtab.url

Double-click on it and simply delete the value. Now all of your New Tabs will open to a blank page. Or, if you want a different page, type in the address (e.g. google.com, bing,com, etc.).

Problem solved.

I would like to know how to add my User ID and Password to allow seamless login to a site by using the userid and password

I have an existing shortcut and would like FF to open and login to the site with one "double-click"

I do appreciate that it is a security risk to do this, but the information on this site poses no risk for me if someone that has authorized access to my personal computer, click on this shortcut.

I will appreciate any help to assist me in doing this.

System: Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I'm trying to open Firefox with multiple tabs open at one time using a program, which reads a configuration file (XML). I discovered when using the "-new-tab" command line parameter, I get one windows for each URL instead of one window with multiple tabs.

I can get it to work IF Firefox is already up and fully running. In other words its frames exist and are visible. If Firefox is only running (say in the tasklist) but not yet visible, the user again gets one window for each URL (e.g. 5 URLs = 5 Firefox windows) instead of 1 window with 5 tabs.

Thus I've been wondering is there a method in Windows or using Firefox to tell from a script (e.g. REXX, BAT, Perl, etc) if Firefox is completely visible and running, so when you a script uses the "-new-tab" parameter the tab appears instead of a window (per URL).

I recently noticed that when I open a Firefox Browser, at the top, where it says "Mozilla Firefox" it is followed by this: (Build 2097109189239018)

Those are not the actual numbers, but that is what it looks like - Parenthesis with the word "Build" followed by a series of numbers and then the end parenthesis.

I would like to get rid of this please. I don't want to see it.

What is it first of all? Why is it suddenly appearing in my browser bar? And HOW can I get rid of it once and for all?

Thank you!
