Hi, I am setting up a laptop for my wife to replace her old one. I have installed Firefox and found that although the main body text is the correct size, the text on the toolbars is very small compared to her old one. How can I increase the toolbar font size without altering the main body. Thank you, Andrew

Very Sorry to Have to Ask - Disable Cache for Development

I made a mistake and broke my FireFox profile. I made a new profile, then copied 11 files from a backup of my profile into my new profile folder, following these instructions https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile

Most things came right back, that is very nice.

I am not certain if browser cache is disabled, which is necessary to avoid insanity while making changes to websites, which is what I do all the time. My mental defects did not prevent me finding thousands of web pages explaining how to complete this task. However, my mental defects prevented me finding any explanation created since the formation of the internet (I am estimating the internet first formed in 2008, because the dates of the answers I found indicated as such (anything before 2013 is basically the same as 2008 for internet purposes). And so, I am here to beg a moment of your time to help me resolve this risk to my mental health which will be extremely serious if caching does not discontinue its anti-social activities.

LEST YOU THINK I AM HELPLESS I found my way to about:config, entered cache into the search and up came about eighty various cache, assundry and other forms of affiliated/associated items. The list is diverse, but every item on the list has one very special thing in common with all the others, and as a group, they achieve an astonishing feat.

WHAT THESE configs HAVE IN COMMON All eighty configs produce by the procedures above have the letters c-a-c-h-e somewhere within them in that precise sequence, with no intervening or otherwise contrary letterizations.

THEIR COLLECTIVE FEAT They manage to organize themselves to perfection, including among them every single config containing the letters c-a-c-h-e in that exact order. No slackers calling in with covid or excuses of dogs eating their homework, all do their part in the roll call when its taken this way. This kind of character is exemplary and inspiring.

THE PROBLEM I attempted to calculate how many combinations of values these eighty configs can have. I got as far as determining a penny for each combination would amount to more than 400 times the gross product of economic activity since the dawn of recorded history.

STRATEGY Since trying every combination is too time consuming, my goal is to go straight to the correct config adjustment to send the cache away.

HYPOTHESIS Changing the last item on the list, marked 'cache' from TRUE to FALSE will produce the cacheless experience I must achieve in order to not impersonate a Molotov Cocktail.

The attached image shows what I have in mind. I am going ahead with experiements, but my hope is someone with knowledge will help click this thing in the way it should go.

I'd like it if Firefox would automatically convert webp images to jpg or png files instead of the opposite... stop trying to save png or jpg files as webp... and stop serving me webp images when it is optional. I understand there are websites that ONLY display webp format images, but I am also aware that jpg and png files exist on many of these websites as well. I do not want to disable the ability to display webp in the browser, but I want to turn off whatever option is currently turned on.

I'd like to go back to being able to right click, Save Image As > and end up saving a png or jpg. There have been several websites over the last few weeks that I have visited, and even if the image in the URL is named jpg or png, Firefox tries to save it as a webp. This is complicating my image saving process. I am using the Add-on named "Save webP as PNG or JPEG" which works, but slows down my saving process considerably. The Add-on does not remember the last folder I saved an image to, and adds several additional clicks to what used to be a simple process.

Is there a way in about:config to prevent Firefox from putting webp as the default file format in the Save Image As dialog box?

Suggesting that I use Internet Explorer or Edge is crazy. I'm not changing browsers.

You can demo this annoyance by trying to save this image, which is obviously supposed to be a jpg: https://media.entertainmentearth.com/assets/images/7c23e8c9a6014c57aa8f5d3e281b3834lg.jpg

When I use Firefox on the external monitor, I set the zoom level to 150%. When I leave home a take my laptop with me, I set the zoom level to 100% to use with a smaller screen.

I want to automate setting the zoom level.

Is there a way to programmatically set the zoom level from a script? Does Firefox expose such an API / command-line tool?

Thanks!

I spend 12+ hours a day in front of a computer and blank pages hurt my eyes. I use dark mode wherever possible.

I've changed the background color of about:blank already and it works as I expected.

However, when a request is fired to load a web page, there's a quick transition which may paint the canvas totally blank before starting rendering the requested page. Since this transition may take a couple of seconds sometimes in my environment, the screen flashes blank onto my face, really hurting my eyes used to most of things dark most of the time.

Is there a way to configure the color of this transitioning blank page, please?

Thanks a lot in advance. :-)

Hi All

some pages like this one are wide enough to have a horizontal left/right scroll bar.

https://trello.com/b/3OtE8BCR/brizy-wordpress-public-roadmap

If I'm lucky, when I want scroll left or right, the cursor is on a piece of HTML where it can move when I use the left or right arrow keys. However often, the cursor isn't available or the right place.

Is there a key or key combo where I can shift the web page left or right in the FF window? I often find it difficult to use the horizontal scrollbar with the mouse.

I have been using Firefox for ages now, and collected a rather large number of bookmarks (>15,000) As far as I know such a number poses some issues, for instance I tried several times to use Sync but was never able to use it.

Since I am using two different machines, I tend to save my bookmarks only on the main one. When I am working on the laptop I never save bookmarks but I message them to myself (never been able to save them on my main machine, sigh) and every once in a while I "restore" bookmarks from the backup set of the main machine on the laptop. It always takes a while and oftentimes it feels like the process hangs, but so far I managed.

Today I started wondering again if there's a less frustrating and more efficient way to handle this. The question I started asking myself was: could I use the same FF profile from the laptop & the main machine? Say by saving it in the cloud?

Thanks for any hint or suggestion!

Hi,

I am on windows 10/FF 78.01 and I have a batch file that on closure saves many things to another disk. Recently I added the saving of my Firefox profiles folder. I had read that when exporting/saving this folder one should ensure that Firefox is closed. Is there a tidy way of closing Firefox in my .bat script?

Currently I am using the cmd taskkill /F /IM firefox.exe but I notice that when I reload Firefox it restarts pretty well exactly where it left off rather than starting with my standard set of tabs as defined in my option 'Use current pages'. It's not a big deal but it would nice to know if there is a correct way to close FF that gives the same restart result as when I do a manual hit 'x' /Close n tabs. Thank you

Hi, I opened Firefox this morning and found Amazon pinned among my top sites. Weirdly enough, I can't unpin it or dismiss it - it just stays there whatever I do (in contrast to other pinned sites). It's not a huge problem, but I have some ethical issues with Amazon, so the last thing I want to see every time I open my browser is their logo. I also wonder how did it get there in the first place (I sometimes do browse the site to get an idea what are the prices of various products, but not too often and I'm not sure if there is a way to pin it by accident at all). Does anyone have the same problem?
