I am on MacOS Mojave (10.14.6). I have a few different installations of Firefox for different purposes and I'd like them each to display the custom name I've given them by renaming their filename (e.g. changing Firefox.app to something like YouTubeViewer.app). This causes the installation of Firefox to show in my app switcher and elsewhere in the OS as "YouTubeViewer", however when I run YouTubeViewer.app, Firefox still displays "Firefox" in the upper left-hand corner as the application name.

I tried editing the .plist file for each installation to change the value for key CFBundleName from "Firefox" to "YouTubeViewer", but that causes that installation of Firefox to no longer run. I believe this is due to the code-signing and pre-run validation done by the OS.

So, is there any way to get the custom name to display or is just not possible?

The print functionality has changed a lot in the latest versions of Firefox and is causing me problems so I wonder if there are settings or add-ons which I've missed which would help.

Specifically:

1) The preview is no longer full screen. This makes it difficult to adjust a view, of say a map, so that the area printed is precisely what is wanted. The full screen preview in older versions of Firefox made this very easy. Is there any way of getting a full screen print preview page?

2) Previously it was possible to set custom headers and footers on a printed page. This was ideal for labelling printouts is a descriptive way, so useful for future reference, and enabled the removal of unwanted information. In the present version of Firefox all I seem to be able to do is switch printing of default headers/footers on and off. Is there a way of customising headers and footers that I've missed?

Thanks

I was able to change the font in Ctrl J by changing my system font (windows 10, Firefox font used to automatically follow it). However after the latest Firefox update, that no longer works for Firefox (my system font is still OK). Please help me change the Libabry font again! The default font (probably SegoeUI) is very hard to read on my computer, it's blurry and comes in light gray.

Note: I'm not talking about the website font (it's fine and can be changed in Firefox settings). The library font size is fine too, only the font itself is too hard to read.

Note2: I tried changing my system font to other random fonts (using the registry), restarting my computer in between etc. That still works, but Firefox won't follow.

Hello:

Quite a few iterations of Firefox ago (cannot recall which), the orientation of the drop down menu listing the bookmarks inside any folder in the toolbar was either towards the 'left' or towards the 'right', depending of the amount of screen real estate available to the right side of the screen where it was opened.

If the listing could not be properly seen by opening the drop down menu towards the 'right', it would be opened towards the 'left'.

This worked perfectly well with my three screen setup, with Firefox in a window in the centre screen. ie: Firefox knew it was inside a three screen wide setup and in the centre screen, so it also "knew" that the right edge of the centre screen was the limit for available screen real estate.

At some time this stopped working in the described manner.

It seems that Firefox now ignores the right edge of the centre screen and as a result the drop down menu for any folder in the toolbar opens to the 'right' and invades the right screen. (see attached screen capture)

If Firefox is opened in a window inside the right screen, it proeprly recognises the right edge of the screen as the limit and acts accordingly.

This is quite a problem for me: I make intensive use of the toolbar with bookmarks inside folders and subfolders and this heavily affects my everyday work.

Is there a way to get back to how it used to be? ie: Firefox using the right edge of the screen it is opened in as the limit to open a drop down menu.

Thanks in advance,

S.

Hi all,

I'm trying to automatically configure Firefox using the policies.json file, but I don't seem to be able to get it to work.

I've created /usr/lib/firefox/distribution/policies.json with this content: {

 "policies": {
   "Homepage": {
     "URL": "https://www.google.com/",
     "Locked": false,
     "StartPage": "homepage"
   }
 }

}

The file and directory permissions allow for read by everyone.

However, when I restart Firefox, I don't get google as my homepage.

What else can I check?

TIA,

Mike.

According to the Distribution Policy for Mozilla Software found here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/foundation/trademarks/distribution-policy/ if you make any changes to Firefox you may not redistribute that with any Mozilla trademark.

Is there any way to remove the Mozilla logos and names from a custom installer to make it that you don't use any Mozilla trademark? Without this ability, it appears that it would not be permitted to redistribute your custom installer without seeking special permission from Mozilla which I can't imagine they want to give, am I right?

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...

I use Multi-Account Containers. I have Restore previous session enabled under Startup in settings. When I have container tabs open, and I close firefox and reopen it, it sometimes removes the container label from the tabs and tries to open them in No container mode. The easiest way to reproduce this problem is to open some tabs in a container, Go to MAC -> Select the container -> Hide This Container, then MAC -> Select the container -> Show this container, and immediately close firefox. When you open Firefox again, the tabs will have lost their container association.
