I've already found the solution, but wanted to share that Version 90 created a problem with Print Preview and Shrink to Fit. Uninstalling Version 90 and re-installing Version 89 fixed the problem. With Version 90 the Print Preview function (which I love) didn't work properly. When I try to Shrink to Fit any page, the first page shrinks, but the second page isn't pulled into the first page. Also, there's missing information on both pages. If there's another solution so I can use Version 90, please tell me. If not, and Mozilla is doing away with Print Preview (and Shrink to Fit), I'll have to do away with Mozilla Firefox. Sorry, but that's the main reason I use Firefox over Chrome. Perhaps I can find another browser to do what I want. I hope not though.

I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 . . . I was doing this (below), to customize my header and footer, but in this version of FF, I no longer see this in Options - only in: about:config . . . keyword "footer" . . . there, I would have to change it for 5 different ways of printing (to printers or to PDF)

I need to get rid of printing the URL in the footer - many times, it's too long, and I don't need it.

Where did the Page Setup option go?

I see in the current Print Options, you have to go to - More Settings / Margin / Custom - to see those. Why would they put this so many levels down?

It used to be: File / Page Setup / Margins & Header/Footer . . . "Customize" Headers & Footers:

Option 1 (left) . . . there are two leading spaces:

 > > &T
 > > &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Option 2 (left) . . . get rid of the ">"s, and just have the two leading spaces:

 &T
 &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Users have been complaining about update nags for several years, and when a solution is found via about:config, Mozilla typically puts a spanner in the works and deletes the relevant config items like 'app.update.silent', 'app.update.doorhanger... etc.

I just want to remove the popup, not the ability to update. I'll update when I'm good and ready, and I don't need a popup each and every day nagging me to do so.

If Mozilla must ape Chrome, then aping Chrome's non-nagging update policy would be a good move.

Hi,

in the latest version of Firefox (updated June 2021), the home page had the icons shrink in size considerably.

I'm visually impaired, and this change had made the home page unusable. It's just too hard to see!

Is there a setting to adjust the homepage icons back to their larger size? They used to be 2-3 times the size, and really useful. The boxes the pics are in are still the same, but the icons displayed are tiny now, at least to these tired old eyes.

Thank you in advance! Tony

I read this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1092509

And i switch "browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon" to "false" and restart the browser. But I am still able to turn off the sound by clicking the icon on the tab. The config option is still set to "false".

What is the proper way to disable mute icon on tabs?

Hi, I just moved from Chrome recently. I found that most of my shortcuts does not work when a text box is focus. For example, I have a plugin shortcut set to `shift` + `alt` + e. When focused on text box, typing this shortcut will literally type a back-tick "´". I've never see similar behavior in Chrome.

I'm wondering how can I disable this "overriding" behavior? (i.e. I want `shift` + `alt` + e activates the plugin behavior when I'm in input mode)

Thanks in advance!

Hi, I'm using the latest firefox version 89.0.2. There's a large tab bar at the top. I never use tabs. Safari doesn't show the tab bar unless multiple tabs are being used. This leaves more space to show webpages. I'd like to hide the tab bar permanently or when only one page/tab is used. I guess that means the red, yellow and green mac circles in the upper left would have to be moved to the lower bar, by shifting the back and forward arrows slightly to the right, as is done on Safari.

I looked online for suggestions. chrome.css files were mentioned. But they didn't explain what those were or how to create/access them. So the guidance was not helpful to those who didn't understand those files, like me.

Can you please let me know how to hide the tab bar?

Based on all the comments I saw on threads, it seems many others think the tab bar wastes space. It would be great if Firefox preferences provided an easy option for hiding the tab bar.

Thanks, Frank

Hello everyone,

I believe I asked this about a year back, and the answer is that is wasn't possible.

I would like a specific behaviour on firefox. That, whenever I open it, it does the exact same thing. It opens a single new window. That it never ever tries to restore the last session. That it always starts fresh.

Preferably even if it "crashed", I tend not to close the browser but shut down with the tabs and apps open.

Intuitively this sounds to me like it should be easy to set, but I haven't been able to find a way.

Also, if possible I would like the rest of history to work. I find that history is useful, it's the session specifically I'd like it to forget / not try to resotre.

Thanks,

Sashin

I need to reorder Firefox windows on the taskbar badly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also it would be useful to have custom titles. Both things should persists after PC restart. I tried couple programs, but they don't work. Devs said: position of Firefox window on the taskbar is store in Firefox and their program has no way of remembering that! Also windows get randomly shuffled each time, it is impossible to use like this. It takes me forever to find right window. It is annoying the hell out of me. How Firefox dev team doesn't fix something that basic??? This is so stupid...

Please tell me there is some solution...

Problems with glitzy new browser: 1. Home page replaced by a mystery page. That page appears even without an Internet connection. 2. Address bar does not allow a keyed or pasted URL. 3. Colors at top of screen blot out the min, max, and close buttons and make the open page buttons unreadable.except for active page button. 4. Moving to a new, or even a follow-up, page is slower.

I have been with Mozilla ever since the early days with the Netscape browser, and have always been happy with the many updates, that is, until this one. Get rid of the colors, and make the address bar functional again. I found the solution to the "mystery page" in Tools/Settings and reclaimed my home page, "homepage." I hope it holds.

Some of my add-ons have disabled themselves and there is no option to enable. I found a potential solution at this thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1276602 but wanted to clarify what to delete in the Profile Folder. I can't continue that thread because it is too old apparently.

The help says to: Delete all extensions* fileS and compatibility.ini in the Firefox profile folder to reset the extensions registry. There is only ONE FILE starting with extensionS. That would be extensions.json

It says to delete extensions* fileS. Could someone please clarify if I'm supposed to delete: extension-preferences.json extension-settings.json extensions Folder

Thank you!
