I'm running firefox 124.0.2 on Linux Mint and am having the most bizarre issue. I've got a logitech M560 mouse, and when I press the mouse button for Forward it functions normally. However when I press the mouse button for Back, Firefox ignores it.

I've already confirmed that the OS is registering the button click as 'Back' using Input-Remapper, and the extra mouse buttons are enabled in the Firefox configuration. I've also used the mouse on another PC with no issues so this one is kind of boggling the mind.

I have a dark themed website with light colored lable that is positioned inside the input field and having the autofill to autocolor the input's background yellow makes things look horrendous. I've tried the following CSS:

``` input:autofill, input:-moz-autofill, input:-webkit-autofill {

   filter: none !important;
   background: rgba(0, 98, 155, 0.35) !important;

} ```

On top of that, I tried changing that for myself in about:config changing ui.-moz-autofill-background to false, but after clearing browser cache and doing a hard-refresh, the yellow autofill background color persists.

That would be a personal fix, but I would rather firefox not murder the theme of my site for others and let me have control of what color the autofill background color should be (if I even want there to be a difference in colors). Am I missing something? I don't simply want to turn that off for myself (although I still want to, but it didn't work). I want to change it for everyone visiting my site. (Like I'm able to change the colors of link or border colors or background colors of other elements).

Over the last week, a little purple icon appears in upper left corner of my firefox browser, it looks like a person viewing a screen. It sits right on top of the red-yellow-green circles that allow me to minimize, enlarge, or close the browser, and renders Firefox unusable. How do I get rid of it?

How do I stop firefox from automatically downloading files from the internet when I click on them - without even asking me if I want to download them in the first place. In "Applications", selecting "Always Ask" in "Choose how firefox handles files etc" does not work. Firefox never asks. If it cannot be disabled, I will have to stop using Firefox.

Firefox has the option to "choose where to save files to" on its options, which I have activated. It works for pretty much every file format/extension EXCEPT PDFs. When I open a PDF on Firefox, it is automatically saved to the downloads folder, overriding my own settings. This is pretty annoying, I wondered if there was a way to choose individually like I do for all my other files.

While using firefox with mac trackpad or magic mouse it's really easy to accidentally middle click to a tab and close it. It's really frustrating to loose a tab. I guess it wouldn't be so hard to put an option to disable that function. That would make life so much easier. And there are LOTS of requests for the same thing in this site many of them more than years old.

Hello, there's something about new tabs that's been annoying me for a while now.

Whenever I open a new tab to search either with Ctrl+N or"+" icon, I have to manually click on the search bar, or do ctrl + L. I don't know if this has always been the case, but I often find myself opening a new tab, entering the query, and then realizing that the search bar wasn't selected and then begrudgingly having to re-enter the query.

I wonder if there's a setting in about:config that enables the search bar to always be selected whenever I open a new tab; if so, please let me know.

Thanks for your time!

Hi,

There are almost 30+ opened tabs in my firefox at any given time. So I scroll over them using muse wheel. But for each notch of mouse wheel scroll, almost 6~7 tabs move left/right.

I would like change this number to 1 tab per notch of mouse wheel scroll.

Is this possible through editing any flags?

Thanks

You can't change Firefox keybinds from within settings. Please can someone direct me to a resource that details each step in achieving this, without need to install an extension. Currently "Ctrl + Win + Left Arrow/Right Arrow" moves between tabs for me, however I use vertical tabs, so would like to use "Ctrl + Win + Up Arrow/Down Arrow" instead.

how to create a new language pack & dictionary for a language not yet in Firefox's list of languages

Hello,

I am a linguist working for the national language commission of the Marshall Islands.

This country's national and official language, Marshallese, is not in the list of Firefox's languages to add the Settings menu. I have Googled extensively and searched within the Mozilla site about how to add a new language to this list, but without success. All the results are about changing/selecting a language that is on the list, but I want to add to the list with a language that is not on the list right now.

Could you please refer some office / person at Mozilla to approach in order to go about creating a language pack / dictionary? Or is there some web resource I have missed?

I can do some coding, and I believe I am capable of writing any software needed for these programs. And if I can't do it, I can hire consultants/contractors.

If government / official permission is needed, I can get this too.

I would really like to know what to do in order to get the Marshallese language added to the list of available languages in Firefox.

Many Thanks, N.W.

This extension is really useful! I don't want to have to excavate Firefox to use it.

Tiny URL is more useful than the rather silly 'Pocket' which just seems to be a page full of adverts

I use Firefox version 103, the old version that is perfectly compatible with an extension I always use. I love this old version, and I don't want to update it to the new version. But the update reminder pops up many times everyday. it's so annoying. I used "about config" to turn it off (see photo 2); it works a bit, but the popup still there once daily after the configuration. I want to turn it off permanently. Is there any way to do it? Thank you very much!!
