I have just upgraded to Firefox version 123. Now whenever I start Firefox on any of my profiles, it will immediately or almost immediately display a "Welcome back" popup stating that "Here’s a quick reminder that you can keep your favorite indie browser just one click away." and provides a button to make the browser the default one. That's exceedingly annoying - I can understand that Firefox wants to notify my once in a while, but this happens at least once a day, probably more often than that. I looked over the source code and got that it is a "spotlight" feature, but I failed to find any settings that would turn it off. Any idea how can I disable this forever?

I can't figure out how to get Firefox to autofill info like my email addy, name, phone number, etc. What is the secret - so annoying to have to type this stuff over & over again. Makes me miss Chrome.

Thanks for your help!

Is there a hotkey which would allow me to grab a Firefox window ANYWHERE WITHIN THE WINDOW to drag its position on a Mac OS screen?

Otherwise there are only two tiny little areas upper right and upper left to grab the window without making a selection with the mouse.

Hi ! J'utilise firefox depuis très longtemps sans me rendre compte qu'il connaissait ma position, et n'ai pas de problème avec ça. C'est quand j'ai voulu lui dire que j'habitais aux États-Unis pour changer la langue et le type de résultats (correspondant à ce dont j'ai besoin, mes études et recherches) que je me suis retrouvé coincé ; il ne m'affichait que mon adresse, toujours des résultats en français et aucun résultat pertinent malgré ma langue anglaise. Que faire ?

Merci par avance, Jacques.

Whenever I open a new tab or window, I'm greeted with the Firefox home screen, which displays various shortcut tiles.

Currently, I have a shortcut for Amazon, which includes a handy blue magnifying glass symbol 🔎 indicating it's a search shortcut and not a shortcut that will take me to an URL. I'm looking to set up similar search shortcuts for YouTube and Google. I've attached an image below for reference.

If anyone is familiar with how to customize these search shortcuts in Firefox, your guidance would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you have any tips or steps to follow.

i'm currently writing my own firefox user.js configuration and now i'm at the topic "unloading inactive tabs" like microsoft edge does.

so what are the preferences for this kind of topic?

i want inactive tabs which have not been used for more than 5 minutes to be unloaded.

chatgpt gave me this "browser.tabs.unloadAfterDelay" preference but this one doesn't even exist in the about:config preferenes, would it still work if it doesn't even exist?

My issue is that I have a huge amount of likes in my Instagram interactions and I would prefer to not have to just manually scroll. There are extensions that if the scrollbar is at the edge of my browser screen they all work. but sadly if its a scrollbar not at the edge of my browser screen they do not take affect.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/autoscrolldown/?utm_source=addons.mozilla.org&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=search


if the solution is with javascript in console, or to edit the html

just inform me what you need me to get to get from the body inspect element in order to know what element is the scrollbar i will do that for you!

i just want this to be able to be autoscrolled, but the extensions wont do it

if someone could help me id really appreciate it

I backup my Firefox profile on G. Drive (encrypted). It takes HOURS to copy the whole profile folder (bad internet). When I copy the updated folder into the old one, should I ignore the old files or overwrite them (and take hours in the process). There is a chance that my backup fails because there are too many old files that I ignored and left there?
