The instructions say you have to visit the page of the bookmark to delete it. Why can't you have the option to QUICKLY right click on it and press delete?

This question is also a suggestion for someone to program it into Firefox to delete bookmarks by right click, or do we have to use a different browser to have that feature?

I changed my Windows 10 default font to something other than Segoe UI because I very much dislike Segoe UI. My doing so also changed the default font in Firefox 88, which is what I wanted. When I updated to Firefox 89, the browser no longer used my Windows 10 default font. That disappointed me a great deal because I did not like the font that Firefox 89 used. When Firefox 89.01 was released, that fixed the problem, and the browser used my Windows 10 default font, which again, is what I wanted.

I have now updated to Firefox 90, and it is not using my Windows 10 default font. Instead, it is using the ugly font that Firefox 89 used. In the Firefox 89.01 Release Notes, it says one of the issues that got fixed was "Fix various font related regressions (bug 1694174)" I am not sure if that is the "fix" that allowed Firefox 89.01 to use my Windows 10 default font, but I do know that after that fix, Firefox used my preferred font.

At bottom, Firefox 90 is not using my preferred font, which is the same problem Firefox 89 had and that Firefox 89.01 corrected. Please fix Firefox 90 so I am not stuck with the ugly font that it uses.

Hi - I have been using Kaspersky Password Manager for many months, and it has great autofill capability for many browsers. It has been working great with Firefox, but as of a month or 2 ago... it suddenly stopped working. I checked my extensions and it's no longer there. When I search for Kaspersky extensions... I don't see it anymore. Only "Kaspersky Protection", etc. Does anybody know if the extension isn't available for the current Windows version of Firefox? Of COURSE it works great in the (C-Word... CHROME!) Yuk. Thanks.

When I download a file and click on the downloads button to bring up the Downloads menu, I often just want to open the Linux Mint file manager in the right folder so I can move the file to a more appropriate place.

In the menu, there's the little button to the right of the listed downloaded file with "Open containing folder", but if I click on that, FF opens the downloaded file, not the file manager.

Obviously this wasn't always like this, but I don't recall doing anything that might have caused the issue. How can I set FF back to the default action of opening the Linux Mint file manager?

Thanks!

I am an older Firefox user and I often find myself enlarging and decreasing size of fonts on different websites to make them readable. Lately I notice I am having trouble with the fonts I am using so I need advice. What are the good fonts to use for Firefox? Also, what is the setting to adjust the fonts Firefox uses in the toolbars and address bar?

I am currently using as follows: Default: MIcrosoft Sans Serif (I like the clean lines of a sans serif, but I'm not wedded to any particular one. ) Size: 10 Proportional: Sans Serif Serif: Newsreader Sans Serif: MIcrosoft Sans Serif Monospace: Lucida Sans Font size: 10 Minimum size: 9

The problem I am having is that text in the address bar is often unreadable due to artifacts that look like a digital font, you know, the blocks? If I highlight the URL inside, the artifacts clear up. I reinstalled Firefox but that problem didn't go away. I need to know which font Firefox uses for that area before I can even begin to try to fix it. Any font suggestions are also welcome. I particularly would like fonts that are readable in many sizes and free of flourishes.

By the way, I chose the image of Google News because I also have trouble with alt text showing, I can't figure out how to get rid of that so any ideas are welcome. It's just Google.

I want to set 2 preferences regarding syncing as default preference for all (new) profiles. 1. sync toolbar layout. 2. set my own sync server path.

I already know how to do this via about:config manually per user. I want to have these 2 preferences by default for all users.

On Ubuntu 21.04, I followed these instructions to the letter, but it has no effect, tested on a newly created profile: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customizing-firefox-using-autoconfig

I created: /usr/lib/firefox/defaults/pref/autoconfig.js And it contains exactly what is in the instructions.

Also created: /usr/lib/firefox/firefox.cfg Looks like: ``` // IMPORTANT: Start your code on the 2nd line defaultpref("services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.uiCustomization.state","true"); defaultpref("identity.sync.tokenserver.uri","https://ffsync.mydomain.tld/token/1.0/sync/1.5"); ```

Then I create a new profile and check via about:config, unfortunately the first preference doesn't exist (note it doesn't exist by default) and the other is not applied, I still see Mozilla sync server path.

How can I set these 2 customisations globally. for all future users (preferably also current users)?

I'm trying to remove the shadows that appear below and to the right of the bookmarks menu in Proton (i.e. the menu that pops up when you click the Bookmarks button on the toolbar).

I've managed to remove the shadow from the main bookmarks menu using this CSS:

 box.panel-arrowcontent {
   box-shadow: none !important;
 }

However, that doesn't remove the shadow from the submenus that pop up for each folder within the bookmarks menu (see the 1st screenshot).

I'm trying this using the following CSS:

 hbox[part=innerbox] {
   box-shadow: none !important;
 }

What's puzzling is that according to the inspector window, this CSS appears to be correct. In the 2nd screenshot, notice that my rule is shown as being in effect, and overriding the original rule in panelUI.css.

However, despite what the inspector shows – the shadow is still very much there!

Has anyone succeeded in removing this shadow?

In Windows 10, when I hit 'new window' it brings up a browser with only 1 tab. In Fedora 34 Ffx when I hit 'new window' it brings up all my 5 initial startup tabs. I don't want this. I want it to behave the way it does in Windows 10. Any way to fix this? https://imgur.com/ovKf0Sx Why is this behavior different in Fedora 34 Linux?

Is the a Ffx add-on extension plug-in that fixes this? If yes, let me know. Thx.

Dear Firefox friends, I am using the up-to-date version of Firefox. How can I prevent the search to occur on the URL bar? I want to use the URL bar only for typing the URL addresses but not for search or googling. It is annoying function and if I want to do so I will use Chrome. Thank you for your kind help and advice.

When I download a file, Firefox (under Windows) usually asks: what do you want to do with it, Save or Open? I'd rather want to Save AND Open. I.e., Save the file to the download folder, then Open it. This option would be nice to have - I usually want to Open the file, but also Save it for later usage. Now, I have to Save it first, then navigate to the Download folder, locate it and Open it.

Another user complained that under Mac, if they Open the file, it is also Saved - that is exactly what I wanted for myself on my Windows computer!

I want the home page to be blank when I open the browser, I want the home button to a URL. This was possible in older versions, and when you then updated the browser it maintained this difference - if it was already set. I did that once but I don't remember how far back on versions that is an option. Is it possible to do this in 89? If not, how far back should I go to install, make my home page and home button settings, then update to the current version. Then we're all good.

If you could supply a link to the correct FF file (windows 10, 64bit) that would be even more good.

thanks

For ages I've had it set up that when I open a new tab, I get a bunch of my frequently visited sites and a search bar I have set up to do searches on Google. But a recent update messed this up. If I try typing in a search, it moves over to the search bar. Now, for me, searching from the address bar is ABSOLUTELY UNEXCEPTABLE. I never do searches from the address bar, it is for ADDRESSES and nothing else. I want it to be clear that if I enter something there, it's an address, to attempt to go to this address (I've had a few times where Firefox made this mistake, tried searching for something entered as an address). I just looked up how to disable the search in about:config, great. But this behaviour continues! STILL if I try entering text in the search bar it moves to the address bar anyway!

Is there any way to stop Firefox from moving my cursor? To accept text in the bar in the page? It didn't used to work this way, as recently as a few weeks ago. Because of this idiocy I've had to enable the separate search bar, but I still want to be able to search in the page.
