Firefox 78.1 ESR W7

Is there any way to get the menu bar to have a unified appearance? Solid background mixed with a transparent one is not very nice looking. It would look much better if the solid background were also transparent. Anyone have a .css or other solution?

The new version of Firefox has removed the drop-down arrow from the address bar, a feature I use several times a day.

Previously, there was a way to restore this by setting a number of "browser.urlbar" options to "False." However, these are currently set at False.

Please advise. Without the drop-down arrow, Firefox is not useful at all.

Firefox v69.0 Whenever I click on one of the matches returned from a search, or click on an embedded link, Firefox forever highlights that selection even though I don't want to be reminded months later that I had looked at that site. This is irksome because I can't ever get a clean slate for doing searches. Every similar search will yield a page full of highlighted links I may have used in the past on a topic that is only tangentially related. Also, since this highlighting persists independently of clearing history it entails a severe privacy leak. If anybody who is authorized to use my machine suspects that I may have an interest in, say, pizza dough, they need only do a search for pizza dough on my machine and any link I had ever selected in the past is highlighted, from which links it can be easily determined that I have both an interest in the topic at large and what aspect of the topic in particular appeals to me.

How do I disable this "feature", please?

Hi. I'm a user of OpenVPN which uses TAP (a virtual network adapter) to establish VPN connections. Sometimes I need to switch VPN on/off when browsing websites, but I didn't find options like "select a network adapter to use" within Firefox. Currently the only solution is to connect/disconnect OpenVPN to switch VPN on/off, but it's quite inconvenient for me.

I've tried searching for add-ons about this, but a possible one named "FoxyProxy" has dropped this feature recently because of the changes about Firefox API, so I think my problem can be no longer solved by add-ons.

Any solutions to this? Can I have this feature provided by Firefox with updates if there isn't any workaround for now?

I take my privacy very seriously and have disabled a large number of Firefox features which erode my privacy, including geo.enabled, dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled, dom.battery.enabled, and many more.

Today I've just found a setting I've never noticed before which makes me really nervous: geo.provider.ms-windows-location

Can anyone please tell me what this does? Is it new? Why doesn't Mozilla have a page/resource explaining what all the preferences do and how to use them?

Hi.

I'm using Windows 10 Pro 2004 *N Version* x64 and latest Firefox. I understand there's a problem with Windows N versions that can be solved by installing Media Feature pack. The problem is... MFP also installs full Windows Media Player and who knows what more. I won't install the full MFP, but I wouldn't mind to add some DLLs or registry keys to circumvent the problem.

So far I've tested Youtube and some other sites and apparently WebM videos run OK (got no problem with Youtube at all) ... but can't play videos on Twitter. Tests seem to show there's a problem playing MP4 videos. Also, it looks like Widevine isn't working.

So... can Firefox for Windows be configured to use ffmpeg... or some other woraround to stop depending on Windows Media Foundation (I assume that's the root of the problem)? If not... any 'hack-ish' way to add just the bare minimum Windows support infrastructure to allow Firefox to play those videos?

Thanks for any help you can provide!

I have had Firefox set to delete cookies upon closure for several years now. I recently noticed that some cookies were present as soon as the browser was opened, which should not be happening.

This set of cookies reappears every time I open Firefox, even if I manually delete all the cookies, and even if I delete the cookies.sqlite file in between closing Firefox and reopening it.

This problem occurs on two machines with Firefox. One with Windows 7 and one with Windows 10. I have Sync configured to keep bookmarks the same on both machines. I was wondering if this may have something to do with it, as the same set of 'zombie cookies' keeps reappearing on both machines?

Hi, My Firefox and Thundebird internet download / upload speed is slow. I I try with Chrome download speed, it is 7-10Mb up and down. If do same with Firefox, then it is different. Many times it is 0,2Mb, but some time also 5-6Mb Usually upload are faster and it is 5Mb. (Use Chrome, then always faster) It seems to me as random, because many times speed OK and many times not OK. If compare test result with Chrome, then always slow.

I use ESET virus control and try to test it without virus control, but same result.

Also in Thundebird HTML load are slow. Small picture in e-mail can reach 30 sec.

I try to change different things in options, but no result.

Can anyone help me with this?

I was just using YouTube, clicked some button, and a pop-up video appeared that I could drag anywhere on the screen, even outside the browser window. It took me a while to realize that it's actually a pop-up window with no border, no file menu, no address bar! just a floating video with no border at all! Very creepy!

What is going on here? How can this be possible? Why is Firefox allowing this? Surely if sites are allowed to make windows pop up without borders, it represents a huge security risk? They could pretend to be anything - a message from Firefox, a Windows error message, anything at all. I am so concerned about this! I presume this is a new feature of Firefox and it needs to be stopped immediately!

Lately, Firefox seems to be giving more and more control over to web developers, and taking away more of the users' rights and security. It is worrying and I don't like where things are going. Why can't Firefox just concentrate on being a great browser instead of allowing developers to do new things?

Is Firefox slowing my Win 7 down, with all you've been adding? I've started cutting cable so went from Comcast to Frontier. Supposed to be 500mbps with ethernet, with Frontier. It is with my laptop, Win 8.1, but desktop is 172 upload & 105 upload. Even with the laptop it gets locked up often when commenting on FoxNews.com articles. Again, the desktop worked good with Comcast. Don't know what that speed was. Thx, Ross
