I am not able to figure out on how to open the respective add-ons User Interface.

  • I have installed some add-ons like 'HTTPS Everywhere' , 'Nord vpn' etc...
  • When I visit the add-ons tab in the menu section on the upper right section of Firefox, it does not show on how to run it or open it.
  • I have been searching this on the internet but couldn't find any information...

Hope the Firefox team will help, Thank you

hello everyone,


I'm having a trouble that seems to be frequent lately (see below a former discussion), and that is driving me nuts.

I've installed my dictionaries, verified the about.config marks, and still the right click for spell check and language choice has disappeared on my outlook 365 web.

Curiously, it works perfectly on Outlook 365 web on Chrome, and here in this text box on Firefox.

Would anyone have a clue how to fix it? (don't want to have to switch browser from Firefox)


Thank youé1 Daphne

Thank you for your replies all. I have worked it out. The language packs were installed but not "Unpacked" All OK now. Thanks cor-el cor-el

Language packs (strings for the user interface) do not need to be unpacked, but dictionaries always do need to be unpacked (they have an unpack property), so do not mix up these two.

Using an online accounting website, data entry is done through a data grid with a data control.

The accounting software allows for the option to use their own date selection control or to use the Firefox date selection control. I don't like the software's date selection control, I prefer Firefox's. However, when set to the Firefox date selection control AND if the fields in the data entry grid get wider than the screen, Firefox shrinks the date selection control to practically nothingness and the value in the control cannot be seen.

Is there something I can do stop Firefox from doing this?

I've attached an image containing 1. the data entry grid 2. the Firefox date selection control when the data entry grid is wider than the screen 3. the software date selection control when the data entry grid is wider than the screen

Beste,

Ik print heel vaak. De laatste twee weken krijg ik geen "afdrukvoorbeeld" meer bij "bestand". Dat was zeer handig aangezien men dan een pagina kreeg van de betrokken webpagina die toeliet om ook de afdruk te vereenvoudigen (grootte tekst, weghalen vermelding datum, naam pagina, ...).

Hoe krijg ik dat terug ?

Hello, I have wanted to move from Chrome to Firefox for some time and I finally got to try it out today. Something that has bothered me since the beginning is that right clicking when the cursor hovers over text behaves differently than I'm used to.

This is the behavior I want:

  1. User action: With the cursor over text.
  2. User action: Right click / double click if in Mac
  3. Browser action: The word that the cursor is hovering should be automatically selected and the appropriate actions (copy, select all, search…, etc.) should appear in the contextual menu.

Instead of those options in the contextual menu, the normal page options are appearing (Save Page As, View Page Source…).

Where do I change this behaviour?

Additionally, how can I make the contextual menu include the «Look Up "foo"» option as it does in Chrome (Mac)?

PS: check the names of the images; basically: Chrome; Firefox-what-I-get; Firefox-what-I-want

I accidentally lost the recommended articles which can be saved to pocket (optional). There should be a checkbox that asks: ARE YOU SURE ? There must be an EASY way to get the articles back. While I'm here I'd like to say that a lot of the help files or comments don't have any pictures. A picture IS worth a thousand words so it would be nice to have more of that. Someone could ask you what someone else looked like and you could sit there and type a long time or (so much faster) show them a picture if you have one, right ? Let's go a step further and use a dismantled car engine. Even more complex. Are you starting to get it ?  :-)

Hello everyone.

I tried switching Firefox (Windows 10) from Polish to English. (It is nice to see a program in your native language. However, most manuals, tutorials, forums etc. on the Web are in English, so using English version of apps wherever possible feels straightforward and consistent). I found one functionality that is browser language dependent for no reason - availability of search engines. Specifically, allegro.pl (Polish auction site). It's there by default when Firefox language is set to Polish. When I switch to English, it disappears along with other default Polish search engines, only to be replaced by English ones.

When I try a "manual" setup of search engines, allegro.pl is nowhere to be found. Firefox settings -> find search engines - no official allegro search engine (just some fan-made add-ons). Go to allegro.pl -> Firefox search bar - I expected the icon of magnifier with green plus sign that would add the search engine of current site - again it's not there.

Is there any workaround? Cheers, Rafał

Hi, In Chrome, I can assign a shortcut key to launch any extension. In Firefox I cannot. There are one or two that I use constantly when form-filling, so this absense is a major productivity loss and means people like me won't switch.

In Firefox's Manage Your Extensions --> Manage Extension Shortcuts page, there's a message: "The following extensions do not have shortcuts [extensions are listed]". Chrome doesn't have such a limitation; any extension can be launched by a shortcut key.

Furthermore, I can't submit a feature suggestion because Help --> Submit Feedback takes you to a dead page. "Please check back soon - we've paused submissions". Not a good impression upon returning to Firefox having spent the last seven years away using Chrome.

Please match your competitor!

Cheers.

Unfortunately, allowing Firefox to update means we are now stuck with the new print dialogue, which is now as un-customizeable as all other browsers. The worst element of this from my point of view as a teacher who frequently prints from the internet is the newly imposed loss of the capacity to customize headers and footers. The two-pages-per-sheet option is obviously a good thing, but in order to number the pages, one is required to splay the URL across the entire top of the page. This is yet worse if you attempt to use the two-page-per-sheet format; you will now have the URL displayed TWICE across the top of the entire page. It's ugly and unnecessary, as is the date and time that I prepped the material. The title is at the top of any article; now it also have to be on every sheet multiple times, alongside the URL, the date and time, and only one possible numbering format. What is sad is that it appears not to be understood that the desired form for much printing from the internet is something approximating the appearance of a book or journal page; whether it is two on one page, or single pages per sheet. If anyone knows how to preserve BOTH the customizable headers and footers AND select one OR two pages per sheet, we'd be very well-helped.

I've been trying for some time to determine why my main Firefox profile, the profile I use most of the time, has a lot of trouble when I use Google Street View. The Street View screen essentially freezes when I try and use it. But, taking a tip from Firefox help I opened up a new profile in a new browser. When doing so, the existing Google Street View problem disappeared completely in the new browser. I call my new profile in the new browser my second Firefox browser to use. My question is, can someone explain why the problem disappears in my second Firefox browser? Looking at the options window when I open the Firefox menu, I see a few differences between the two browsers. The big difference is the second browser has much less applications in it. It has 7 applications where as my first browser has 21 applications. Is this the possible reason why the second browser doesn't have the problem that my first browser does? If so, how can I delete some of the applications in the first browser to see if that is the problem? I'm trying NOT to refresh my first Firefox browser as refreshing Firefox caused much problems for me in the past. And, it seems some Firefox aficionado's do say use caution when using a refresh. So, can someone please explain why the one browser, the new second browser, is void of the problem that plaques my first or original Firefox browser? Thank you. Post a Reply

Dear Community,

I would like to download this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/ I would like to know how it works. If I will install this extension my firefox will be check hashsum for the files of this extension automatically? Or maybe public key of the organization/company who created Adblock Plus extension? How it is work? Can you tell me? I hope that people from Mozilla now read this and can answer for my question. This is very important for me.

Next question is to Adblock Plus extension. I can read this information: "This add-on is not actively monitored for security by Mozilla. Make sure you trust it before installing" so my question is why Mozilla don't recommended this extension? This extension now use 6,678,297 people so this is huge count. It is possible that this extension is not safe and these people now use malicious software? Why on dedicated website for this extension I can't see company name? Why this company is not verified by Mozilla? So my sugestion for people from Mozilla is to change this and check this extension or maybe add some information on website for this extension.

So I should install this extension? My friend use this on Google Chrome and he recommended me this software but I don't know if this is exatcly the same version. Maybe Chrome has verified Adblock Plus software and this is safe but Mozilla didn't verified this and this can be dangerous software because this can be not exactly the same version?

Next question is to adblocker. Why Mozilla can't make their own software to block all annoying ads and due to fight with malware? Example Opera browser have own buil-in adblocker. Why firefox can't do this? Maybe people from Mozilla should do this? This can be helpful because if this can be happen I will be not install any 3rd party software for firefox anymore and I will be safe. Maybe I can send somehow this suggestion to people from Firefox?

I hope that you can help me.

Yours faithfully, Peter

I can't tell you how amazingly awesome the MAC extension is! Extremely helpful, especially for those of us who are juggling multiple logins on the same systems. There is one small issue I'm hoping to get help with.

Here is my specific scenario:

I have two different Microsoft DevOps accounts one at dev.azure.com/xyz and another at dev.azure.com/abc - they have two different Microsoft credentials, perfect for the MAC extension.

Except... the "Always Open in Container..." option seems to only be key'd to the domain name. I would love to be able to use more of the URL as you can see in my example. Is there any way to make this happen?
