Since I help a lot of folks to set up Firefox, and customize the settings a lot, it would be great to have a way to export and import those custom settings. Sync is no help as they don't have an account/setup to sync the settings FROM. But since sync CAN update the settings, how about giving us a separate way to do the same via an exported file????

Please? Sure would make my time to install and set up a LOT easier.

Hello!

I was wondering if there are any plans to add a feature like this (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-CA/firefox/addon/auto-tab-discard/) to Firefox? I tend to keep lots of tabs open at once, and I'd love to be able to pause unused tabs without closing them. But I'd prefer to avoid giving an add-on access to all of my data. So I keep hoping that this type of feature will get incorporated into Firefox. Do you know if there are any plans like this?

Thanks so much in advance and for the work that you're doing!

I really love the new picture-in-picture option. It's especially helpful when I only have one monitor. There are a couple of rough-edges I'd like to see tweaked.

1. I resize these windows all the time to put them where they'll fit when I'm doing something else, and it can finicky to resize the window quickly. It would be helpful if the areas you can grab the edges and corners of were exaggerated. For example, if when the user's mouse is near an edge or corner of the picture-in-picture window a handle pops-up around the given area that's larger than the 1pixal-ish default handle area. I've seen similar functionality in the art program GIMP for selection boxes.

2. The way the window acts when being resized isn't very intuitive. The corners work as expected, but since the corner areas are so small I often grab the sides and that can get frustrating. I now know that when grabbing the Bight and Bottom sides of the window the Top-Left corner is anchored while resizing. Similarly, when grabbing the Left and Top sides of the window the Bottom-Right corner is anchored. That seems pretty intuitive when I type it out, what's the issue? Well, the problem comes when you are grabbing the window near the corners. If for example, I'm trying to grab the window by the Bottom-Left corner and miss (which I've done plenty) and grab the Bottom of the window. Now when I resize the window is anchored in the Top-Left instead of the Top-Right, which is the opposite of what I wanted and leads to some confusion and repositioning. What I would suggest, separate from the #1 solution, would be to break the sides of the window into three areas: Near-corner 1, Center, and Near-corner 2. When grabbing the window on the edge in one of the Near-corner areas, anchor the window at the opposite corner. When grabbing by the center of an edge anchor the window by the opposite center.

Thank you for reading my long suggestion. I hope you don't find this to be a negative interaction. I truly enjoy Firefox, and I've very excited about your new Picture-in-picture feature. I hope you understand that this level of nit-picking can only come from a place of love!

P.S: I'm very pleased to say that I did not include a third issue I had with the Spacebar Play/Pause functionality not working unless the Play button was the last object clicked on the window, because in the latest update it was gone! I want to thank whomever worked on that and let them know, someone did notice, and they appreciate it! <3 <3

Hello,

I'm using Containers and am able to log into different gmail accounts simultaneously.

However, I'm curious as to whether or not it would be possible to link a specific account to a specific container? (e.g., my work email automatically logs into the work container, same for personal email).

I use LastPass, but would Firefox passwords work to make this process more automatic? I set "Gmail" to automatically open in my "work" container, but it takes me to the landing page and requires me to sign-in every time.

Perhaps, I should just stop clearing my history/cookies and just hide the containers instead so the data is saved and I remain logged in. I am curious if there is another solution that I'm overlooking. (I would be down to help build one, too!)

Currently, whatever link(s) you set as your Homepage is also the same link(s) that appears when you open a New Window. The way that New Window is inherently clumped together with the Homepage seems to make it impossible to separate the two in the Options settings.

What is the logic behind this? Why have a separate setting for New Tab, but not New Window? I like having Firefox open up multiple tabs as my homepage when I first boot up Firefox, but if I want to open up a new window just for screen management space with Ctrl+N, I really am not interested in my homepages being re-instantiated, as I already have them open on my first window.

I really want my Homepages to remain a custom mix of tabs with any New Tab and New Window opening up to a Firefox's default new tab page. Is that not possible? I can't have a custom Homepage without also having a custom New Window configuration? :(

It just seems like an arbitrary distinction. What can I do to make this magical world of separate Homepage and New Window settings happen?

Sincerely, A Fan

Current containers allow us to seperate browsing history to some parts. But it's not enough for privacy at work in practice. For e.g. you can search something and suddenly it can suggest you a site from personal or something else nsw etc. Also the new tab highlights are combined with personal and work and the others. But if the containers converted to multi-profiles we could also use seperate browsing, customizing, etc. Unfortunately for this reason I have to use two Firefox Account. :/ and also unfortunately I can't use Firefox Lockwise, because my passwords seperated two Firefox accounts and I can only set one Firefox Account on my mobile phone. :/

If multi-profiles can set and switch easily on one Firefox Account, that would be awesome! Thanks in advance.

Whenever i create an account anywhere, i use an email address with a tag unique to the service appended to the end. For instance, the email address I used here is firstname.lastname+mozillasupport@gmail.com. I do this to be able to automatically put incoming emails in various buckets, and also to be able to mute emails from specific senders or see which services sell my address on to spam spewers.

In firefox monitor, this creates a problem, because as far as Firefox is concerned I use hundreds of different email addresses, whereas in reality they are all the same address just with different tags.

So I would be massively helped by the following feature: When you add an email address to Firefox Monitor, there is a checkbox that says "Include address variations". When adding the address firstname.lastname@gmail.com with the checkbox checked, any variation of that email address should also be considered added, e.g. firstname.lastname+dropbox@gmail.com firstname.lastname+netflix@gmail.com firstname.lastname+hbo@gmail.com

Bonus feature: Support for service specific quirks - the checkbox would also be aware of quirks various email providers have. E.g. for gmail addresses the dots are optional. So when adding the address firstname.lastname@gmail.com with the aforementioned checkbox checked, the address would also match firstnamelastname@gmail.com.

Was using Lubuntu for years on old hardware, then OS got corrupted. Chgd Distro to "AntiX" which worked for a few weeks, then FF quit loading Tags (blue dot just goes back & forth but no load). Bought a new computer meantime but would like to keep old stuff running and most of all clean out the anti-captialist propaganda garbage than landed in my FF synch account, including loops. An add-in that kills loops and moves all bookmarks to the bookmarks bar would be helpful. Presumably it was 'AntiX' that put the propaganda in my FF bookmarks, but bookmarks, if a directed graph, seems susceptible to loops and should have defenses against loops so once garbage like Anti-X's gets in, it can be cleaned out. Cryptically, my FF account asked me today to verify my home country (!) -- which I did (USA). Help appreciated, but if too much trouble would like Synch account destroyed so I can start a new one with same email. Also years and years and years ago I had an early Synch account with the same email address, so if it's calusing trouble, it can all be wiped out. Having to write this from some other browser on a new computer. Thanks!

Every day we open web site and enter username, password and push button login (or using autofill). It take 10 - 15 sec. per site and annoying step every day or week we enter again and again and push login. Firefox may resolve that issue simple replace by automatic way by provide "User profile" ideology.

For example web site want to register new user and ask JavaScript to provide information. Firefox popup window like it now doing with audio, subscription and other feature. User select "User profile" and security rights (bio. address, payment) and no more.

This approach already provided in some Apple iPhone application you reinstall application and application get you Apple ID account and provide access to you account.

Using web site now it simple we no more login and password and already using accounts store in FireFox accounts.

P.S. How about Web Autorization API it is complete or is still draft?

The tab dropdown menu normally has a bar down the side which shows which tabs are onscreen at the moment. With the latest update this has disappeared, to be replaced by a single bar marking the currently open tab.

It seems silly, but that bar made it easier to control and limit my number of open tabs (which is quite anxiety-inducing, at least for me).

Is there a skin to restore the old appearance, or (even better) an option to restore the setting?
