I want to use the ALT-e shortcut for a particular add-on. I want to either disable ALT-e from opening the browser Edit menu or redefine another shortcut to open the Edit menu, freeing ALT-e for another use.

Some time ago, the submissions from Firefox Feedback (the happy/sad faces) were visible at input.mozilla.org. It was interesting and useful to get a feel of whether one's issue was something isolated or common. Where did that dashboard go? ... and why? And, is our feedback still used for something, or does it go to some server that stopped working long ago?

this has been a problem for multiple years. its caused me not to use my monitor at 4k because i love firefox but cannot stand a white bar on the side. im over this problem, it has not been fixed in several years (3+) with any update. Edge, Chrome, and Opera do not do this, only Firefox. I have tried standard, beta, nightly, and they all do the same thing. It is a firefox problem. Not windows, gpu driver, or anything else. Scaling above 100% should be just fine. I am ready to be done with Firefox as you guys don't seem to care about the problem at all. I have seen multiple posts on here about the same problem, and nothing gets done. Please fix this problem soon. I am ready to switch back to chrome -_-

For a few months I have been using a userChrome.css customisation which displayed a URL at the beginning of each drop down autocomplete result for the URL Bar (normally a useless page title is displayed).

Here is the thread where I got the script from (thanks for your help, jscher2000): https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1256581

Today I upgraded to Firefox 68 and it stopped working. Autocomplete results now display website title first, which is completely unreadable and pointless.

My userChrome.css definitely works, because if I add the following line at the end:

  • { color: red !important; }

then the text becomes red.

Unfortunately changing the order of autocomplete results so that the URL is first, has no effect.


Here is the entire content of my userChrome.css

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

.ac-url-text  { color: black !important; font-size: 12px !important; }
.ac-url-text[selected="true"]  { color: white !important; }
.ac-site-icon { display: none !important; }

This involves Firefox on Mac, Windows, Android, and iOS. I have been using Firefox on my MacBook since 2012, and been syncing to my Android phones since 2015-ish (a Huawei, then Samsung, then another Samsung, replacing them as they broke). I never had any problems. I can't remember if I was able to access already synced bookmarks from broken phones, but since I move my mobile bookmarks into desktop bookmark folders pretty often, I was never bothered enough to check. Last October, my MacBook's logic board broke. Not long after, my phone broke. I got a secondhand iPhone, and signed into sync, but nothing synced up. I assume because my devices are already dead and no longer syncing? Is there anyway for me to access my laptop bookmarks? I still have the hard drive from the MacBook.

I finally have access to a computer again, this time a Windows desktop, and logged in to my Firefox sync to see if I could find any of my disappeared bookmarks. Nope, but something weird happened. I have about 200 bookmarks on my iPhone, and the first 139 migrated to the desktop. They show up under the 'Mobile Bookmarks' folder on the desktop, but I can no longer see them on my iPhone. The most recent 20 or so bookmarks are still available on my iPhone, but don't appear on the desktop. What just happened?

While going through all the help pages, I discovered that I do have a second Firefox profile, though I opened it up and there isn't anything on it. Not sure if that matters.

Thank you!

AUTOFILL AUTOMATICALLY RESETS - FF USERS CAN NOT BLOCK AUTOFILL

I found a MAJOR FLAW in FireFox so they Steal all your info you type!

I do not want my "AUTOFILL" being used, yet FIREFOX BUILT IN TO BE AUTOMATICALLY ON!

I also use CC Cleaner and it exposed a MAJOR SECRET BUG IN FIREFOX and you can NOT TURN OFF AUTOFILL!

The "Fake" autofill is reset to always be ON, and if you try to actually Block it, your FF will reboot back to AUTOFILL ON!

You can got to Security and select "Autofill" to be off, but its a FACT, IT STAYS ON! A 2nd security program states the BROWSER PLUG IN is not Off but On! When I manually turn it off with a 2nd program, it automatically closes FF and reboots back on with AUTOFILL ON!?

So Once I turn on FireFox and my autofill in security says OFF, it actually stays on. Looking at programs browser plugin in CCleaner, it reverts and says FF Autofill is ON! When you try to clear it and change it to OFF, you FIREFOX Automatically CLOSES! Then when you restart FF and look again, CCLeaner says its ON.

I was wondering why I'd get the same stuff on pages, and I set my Security Autofill OFF. So you "assume" its off, but if you look close, you'll see stuff you typed yesterday, is still valid. Yet I reset all cookies and run CCLeaner and several other security programs.

So why can't you actually TURN OFF FF "AUTOFILL"? Their is a SECRET that forces FF to keep autofill ON, even when you select it to be OFF!

Does anyone else find this scam on, where your computer catches FF Autofill being on, when you select it to be off?

So all your typing in FF, you may select Autofill "Off", but your computer actually reads that Autofill IN FF as still being "ON".

So is FF only "Pretending" to its users to think your "autofill" data is OFF, but ITS ACTUALLY BEING SENT? If not, why is other security programs picking up on the Autofill typing being sent as "ON", inside the actual FF program? Why would a computer security program reading FF, read the blocked autofill data as being ON, while your FF security controls say its OFF inside the FF Browser?

This opens up your computer to having all your typed data secretly stolen, and if you use your CC or bank info or passwords, they are really be SENT! What a FF scam.... So was this purposely made or what?

I never remember having any "Autofill" Plugin, until the last few months. So is this a new addon, that they use to backdoor into FF and steal all your personal data?

Sometimes on steaming sites (e.g., youtube) firefox exhibits laggy response time. For example, when I double click on the video for fullscreen, it takes about half a second for firefox to execute. This usually happens when I'm using firefox on the site without closing it for some time. Why does this happen?

There appears to be an issue in Firefox Quantum 68.0 (64 bit) Windows 10 with it not displaying icons offline. You can now only see them when the website is uploaded online. This has never before been the case in all previous versions. I've attached a screenshot. there should be displaying in the image facebook, twitter and instagram icons. Makes it very difficult when you can't see them when designing a website. No issues in Chrome, Edge or Opera Browsers.

I have several shortcuts on my desktop. More than one appears with a FireFox icon instead of the corresponding icon which would normally belong to the icon. This is only happening on one of my computers and not on the other. I'd like to correct the icons in having be with the appropriate website's icon; i.e. Yahoo should have a purple "Y", Accuweather should be a large orange sun.

I have installed these add-ons. Ad blocker, password manager, and privacy browser.

After changing the settings in Firefox, my ad blocker and password manager disappeared from the menu bar. I see the add-ons in the extension list. Uninstalling, re-instaling the extensions do not bring the extension icons back. I tried to do a "re-install" using the Firefox "re-install" button, but my extensions did not show up again.

I had to completely uninstall Firefox (which does not remove Firefox settings from the computer ---- WHY?!) delete the registry entry, re-install Firefox and re-instsall the add-on extension to get them to show up again.

But when I go back into settings, make changes, the add-on extensions disappear again.

Which settings cause this?
