I added my own shortcuts and deleted all the preset ones (Wikipedia, Twitter, Amazon etc). On deleting the last one of the default ones, the 'Add a shortcut' button has completely disappeared. Is there another way to create a shortcut?

I usually have firefox running. Sometimes I want to display a file on my computer in firefox. Until today (don't know what happened today) I could; firefox would add a new tab for display of that file. Now it gives me an error, reports, 'Firefox is already running, but not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile'. This is inconvenient.

Dear friends at mozilla.org,

Thank you for your excellent browser, which I've used almost from its first versions.

I'd like to compile its source code, which I've downloaded from your website, into a working browser. I've spent several days, and get only as far as not-terribly-helpful error messages, that indicate strongly that I'm using versions of tools and libraries that the source code doesn't like.

I'm using

 linux kernel 6.1.0-13-686-pae (from Debian)
 gcc 13.2.0-9
 perl 5.36.0
 python 3.11.7

It's sufficiently important for me to compile firefox that I'd install a fresh linux system for this purpose. Could you possibly recommend to me what linux distribution I could install, and versions of compilation tools, header files, libraries, etc. that are known to work for compiling firefox? I'd be glad to report back to you my results, to help others who'd like to compile firefox.

In case you're wondering, I'm perfectly competent in installing software, including compiling anything. I'm an M.I.T. graduate, and have been a professional computer programmer for most of the half-century of my working life.

Thank you kindly for any response that you have time to send to me.

Very truly yours,

Lyman Opie [email address]

Hi,

I've been using the following in userChrome.css for many years

  1. menu_close { display: -moz-box !important; }

to restore "Close Tab" in the File menu, based on cor-el's response regarding restoring menu_bookmarkAllTabs here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/799856

This stopped working some time ago and I am finally getting around to asking why.

I do have toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets set to true, and other items in userChrome.css are working.

I am using 121.0 at home and 115.0 ESR at work and see the same (i.e. no "Close Tab"), in both cases on Debian testing. I do see this menu item when using the keyboard to open the File menu.

Any idea why this no longer works?

thank you, Greg

Im trying to halt fingerprint tracking, whoever designed Firefox's privacy.resistFingerprinting rule makes fingerprinting even more prevalent.

With privacy.resistFingerprinting set to FALSE, my resolution is reported : 1920x1080x24, set to TRUE its 1920x968x24

1 in 6 browsers has resolution 1920x1080x24 1 in 6000 browsers has resolution 1920x968x24

Who in Firefox decided this config rule? and what is the logic behind it? Looks like intentional sabotage to make peoples browsers more trackable.

Whilst leaving resistFingerprinting set to TRUE, How can I force my resolution to the more generic 1920x1080x24?

Is there another setting in about:config I can change? if there isnt, where can I request this feature? Id rather not resort to an extention for something so small like this.

When I open a new tab in FF, a row of 8 boxes appears below the search bar where I can add shortcuts. I currently only use 5 of them, meaning there are 3 empty boxes left over. I don't want to have them show history, or recommended websites, or anything of the sort that might distract me; the shortcuts should only be those I actually intend to use, of which there are only 5. To my knowledge, the only easy way to add/remove shortcuts is to adjust the number of visible rows, but this only allows modifications based on multiples of the original 8. Like in Chrome, can I actually remove any excess shortcut boxes I don't want to use? I feel this is a very basic customization I'm sure Firefox should be able to accommodate.

I've included a screenshot of my FF new tab, where the three empty shortcut boxes I'm referring to can be seen. Thank you in advance for any assistance!

I fill out a specific online form on a regular basis. When I used Chrome several months ago it always remembered my form data. But no matter what setting I set I cannot get this to work on Firefox.

Under Privacy & Security I've set History to Use custom settings for history: Remember browsing and download history enabled Remember search and form history enabled Clear history when Firefox closes disabled

I have also checked antivirus, antispyware, firewall, and privacy programs are not interfering. I do have a VPN but only use this when using online banking.

Hi, it has occurred to me that I lose the browsing history of tabs that were open for a long time. By browsing history i mean the sites that show up in "Go back one page" arrow. The issue is that after a website has been open for some time (this seems to be in range of days, perhaps weeks) the browsing history of that tab is forgotten and the Go back one page arrow goes blank. I would like to be able to keep this history for eternity, is there any way to enable that?

To be clear, I use the feature to save tabs of my previous sessions and also the Simple Tab Groups extension.

Thanks in advance, Alex

I have constantly crashing tabs with FF 121.0.1 32-bit on Debian (happening since at least 120, and probably 114 or perhaps 115 ESR), and about:crashes has no listing of any tab crash reports; this hasn't been an issue until the most recent version. I'd like to report them so that they could hopefully be fixed, but reporting doesn't seem to be happening? Thanks.

I don't want the list because I don't want to be distracted by these sites.

While they are safe-for-work, I'd rather "fun" sites didn't come up when I'm working with other people.

The Debian Firefox packages available are only 115.6. Thought it would be nice to have the latest. Grabbed all the dependencies according to the Mozilla web site.

Installed Firefox 121.0 as root and placed folder into /opt, as instructed. Went through all the settings and imported my bookmarks.

Now there is a 121.0.1 upgrade available but my browser won't automagically install the upgrade. Says click here to download. So I do. I get the entire tar.bz2 bundle, which creates a full directory structure, as if I was starting over.

Can I just move a few files from that into the existing /opt/firefox directory to get the upgrade? If so, which ones?

Or, can I move few files from the existing directory into the new version, and replace the whole lot? If so, which ones?

Thanks in advance.
