I'm trying to take off this "Extension (Tabliss)" tag on my url. I have followed the instructions down below from another Firefox support forum: https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/make-addressbar-text-extension-name-of-the-extension-shorter-or-hide/28026/3

The instructions I followed are listed below:

"Users can apply custom style rules to modify Firefox’s toolbar area by creating a userChrome.css file. This takes about 10 minutes so when you have time to take it slowly and carefully:

(1) Set up your chrome folder and userChrome.css file following the five six steps in this article:

https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html 45

I have a boring video there if you like demonstrations.

(2) This is the code to paste into the file. You can edit the file using Notepad or a better editor. Make sure to keep it in a plain text format with a .css file extension (not .css.txt).

See improved rule down in: Make addressbar text "Extension (Name Of The Extension)" shorter or hide

/*

  Hide Extension Name in the identity area unless
  hovered for half a second (updated for Fx80)
  • /
  1. identity-box.extensionPage #identity-icon-labels,
  2. identity-box.extensionPage #identity-icon-label {
 visibility: collapse !important;
 transition: visibility 250ms ease-in-out;

}

  1. identity-box.extensionPage:hover #identity-icon-labels,
  2. identity-box.extensionPage:hover #identity-icon-label {
 visibility: visible !important;
 transition: visibility 250ms ease-in-out 500ms;

}

(3) Firefox should read the file at its next startup and apply it to every extension page you load."

Edit: So, yeah, I need help getting this tag off. I'm new to Firefox so it could be something obvious I'm missing. I have also tried CTRL+SHIFT+R to reload the page for changes and also closed and reopened my Firefox entirely.

Thanks in advance.

While I'm testing local testing for website, whenever I typed/entered localhost OR localhost:8000 Firefox keep redirecting/guesing subdomain for it(which="www"). Made my testing messed up.

There's same issue on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1216065 None of those work.

Now i always get this in Firefox "Playback Error There's something wrong. Please try again later. "

And yes it is just Firefox. I know that Firefox is killing the ability to listen to Amazon Music as it works perfectly fine in Chrome and Microsoft Edge but not in Firefox at all. I've tried several days - it won't play it.

Really is uninstalling and basically killing Firefox the best?

So I've recently noticed that Firefox is the only browser which has problems displaying colours effectively.

I've searched this issue on Google and to be quite honest, the archived responses to this issue which I've read have been rather bad-faith and evasive, blaming either driver issues or Windows settings - neither of which get in the way of other browsers' correctly displaying a webpage. And why should I fiddle with my Windows or driver settings to make a browser happy, anyway? That seems more like a sign of browser problems for obvious, logical reasons.

I have attached screenshots of the same webpage snippet on Chrome, Edge, Opera, and Firefox. The Firefox image is the last, bluest, and incorrect rendering of the webpage colour.

I have tried going into the Color menu and cancelling the override option (selecting "Never" in the drop-down menu). I've even gone into advanced settings and set gfx.color_management.mode to 0 - nothing works.

If anyone can help with this it would be much appreciated.

Not really knowing how this effects my OS, I was wondering if it effects Microsoft OS and its updates and installation. I have not been able to install Windows 10 latest update for 2/9

Firefox 64 bit default & shortcut conflicts

Windows 10 update: Existing FF shortcut is not default (that can not be changed) and new FF shortcut is required default but will not launch with open tabs and book marks… (read more)

Windows 10 update: Existing FF shortcut is not default (that can not be changed) and new FF shortcut is required default but will not launch with open tabs and book marks as older shortcut.

Windows update mess: Totally confusing. I am on a 64 bit lap top.

Conflict: Two FF shortcuts launch the same 64 bit version of FF from two different start directories but only the old one retains my book marks or open research tabs. Launch that and I get error 'not the default browser" and that can not be changed. Launch FF from any web link or email and same 64 bit program launches with no open tabs or book marks. Can not set old (BEST) shortcut as the default it always previously was.

First: After a recent Windows 10 upgrade, when I now launch the Firefox from the icon shortcut pinned to my task bar, it now says “Firefox is not your default browser” and I am given the choice to use FF as my default browser. But no matter what I do I can not stop that default browser error AND Windows tells me the FF IS selected as the default.

The properties of the Original shortcut on my task bar short cut are”

Target: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" Start in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox"

Ths is puzzling for that appears to be correct for 32 bit and not 64 bit program. I have ALWAYS been using that shortcut for years not with no problem. I prefer to keep that because I currently have about 25 open tabs for a research project and dozens of favorites in my tool bar. That is what launched whenever I clicked a link in my email or in any web document. BUT not any more!

Second: Since the Win 10 upgrade, even if the original shortcut is open, if I click on a link in my email or any web site, FF does not launch in a new tab from with that launched shortcut and opened FF page but instead opens a new window. In that instance I do not get the message "Fire Fox is not your default browser” of in that instance it IS my default! But I am getting an entirely different FF page: no open tabs and no bookmarks.

As I sleuthed about I discover that from any emial or a web link FF is not launching from that original task bar shortcut but different a different shortcut new to my desk top which has the same properties as the FF in my list of programs . The properties of those shortcuts are:

NEW Shortcut: Target "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" Start in "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox"

It does not appear that I am running two versions of FF. No matter which shortcut I launch About FF tells me I am running FF version 85.0.2 (65 bit) so there even though it is launched from a different “Start” location.

So the new shortcut after Win 10 upgrade launches FF version 85.0.2 (65 bit) from Target "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" with no open tabs and no Book marks and appears to be the dafault

And the OLD preferred shortcut launches FF version 85.0.2 (65 bit) from Target: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" (which should have been reserve for 32 bit?) and that shortcut launch tells me FF is not my default browner however but it IS the default as launched from Target "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

This may explain why the original old shortcut tells me FF is not my default browser and I can not change it since that already is selected as the default in the new shortcut. It may also expiation why launching from the new shortcut does not me give me that error.

Maddening! What do I do? I dare not uninstall FF because there is apparently only one 64 bit version running.

If I change the NEW shortcut properties so the same as the old original shortcut properties that does not help. Widows still insists that FF Target "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" is/must the default and I can not modify that in path in programs and apps.

Windows seems to insist that FF can only be the default if lanced from "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe". A launch from "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" will insostg it is not the default and I can not change that.

So how to I get FF version 85.0.2 (65 bit) to launch from Target "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" BUT with all the open tabs and book marks it launches from Target: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

I think this means Windows 10 will no longer allow FF to be the default if launched from "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

As far as email or web links I can not make FF to launch from "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe".

So, somehow we I must accept Target "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" as the default path. So how do I import all my open tabs and book marks into the FF that launches from Target "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

Long time listener, first time caller... :) [Seriously have been using and loving Firefox/Mozilla since 2004-2005, before that was Netscape Navigator, this is the first time I can recall having an issue that I can't find already written up and solved. Hence, this post.]

I've been having some odd issues with Firefox (85.0.2 64-bit) on my Intel Mac (Big Sur 11.2.1) for the past few months, and this morning decided to dig in deeper.

The backstory: When I’ve wanted to copy and image and paste it into Apple Messages, the images sometimes don’t send because Messages doesn’t support TIFF, WEBP, or PNG formats when sending to someone who doesn’t have an iMessage account (aka using standard MMS like to Android phones). So, I then have to convert the failed image to JPG, delete the failed message, and drag the saved JPG image file into Messages and can then resend it.

The issue: Today, I discovered that when I copy a JPG image from Firefox, and paste it into Apple messages, it seems that it doesn’t send because it appears to be either copied or pasted as a different format than the original image?

To reproduce:

  1. Go to a web site with a JPG image ( http://www.lunarbaboon.com for example)
  2. Right-Click on the JPEG image ( comicorder038.jpg for example) and select “View Image Info”
  3. Right-Click on the JPEG image and select “Copy Image”
  4. Paste into Messages to send to someone who doesn’t have an iMessage account
  5. Hit enter to send
  6. Wait a few seconds for failure
  7. Click on failure Info
  8. Right-Click on image and select Open
  9. Preview shows the file as TIFF not JPG

To simplify:

  1. Go to a web site with a JPG image ( http://www.lunarbaboon.com for example)
  2. Right-Click on the JPEG image ( comicorder038.jpg for example) and select “Copy Image”
  3. Open Preview and select “New from Clipboard”
  4. Select “Tools -> Show Inspector”
  5. Preview shows the file as PNG not JPG

What I’ve tried: Copy & paste of same image from Firefox - Safe Mode fails - So, doubt it is something in my Firefox config Copy & paste of same image from Safari works - So, doubt it is something MacOS related However, copy & paste of same image from Chrome fails too - So, maybe it is something MacOS related?

Any suggestions on what to try next?

Firefox hogging hard drive space with temp files (cubeb-shm...input/output)

I've discovered that in my Users/UserName/AppData/Local/Temp folder, there are thousands of files eating up space with name "cubeb-shm-#####-#####-input" and "cubeb-shm-#####-#####-output", where "#####-#####" is a 10 digit number seperated by a hyphen.

I did a basic google search for these filenames and found several articles that talk about how firefox uses these, and normally creates and then deletes them, so there should only ever be one of each (input/output) file at a time. For some reason, I have thousands of these files, and they are eating up hundreds of Gb's of space on my hard drive. I only discovered this because my computer notified me I was running out of space. I manually deleted them, but I don't want to have to do this regularly, since it seems it's not expected behavior for Firefox.

I'm running the 64 bit version of Firefox 85.0.2, and there are no new updates available at the time of this writing. I'm really hoping someone can help me figure out how to get Firefox to appropriately manage these files. Help me Firefox community! You're my only hope!

Hello,

I have found out this issue very recently when I was trying to upload my music library into my Youtube Music account, but couldn't do so because I was using my brand account. I tried to switch out to my personal account, but after clicking my personal account, the page refreshes and my account is still my brand account. I tried this with Youtube in Firefox and it's producing the same problem. I'm able to switch in and out of my accounts in Chrome, but yields differently when I tried it with Firefox. I figured I can maybe get some help to what I am supposed to do if I still want to use Firefox and able to switch account more easily.
