I am trying to get Firefox browser to remember my credit cards. I found the following instruction dated 6/12/18:

"Mozilla is slowly enabling formautofill for credit cars spread out over a number of new version released, and initially for a certain percent of en-US users. The code is inside Firefox but just not enabled for all users. For users who didn't get it enabled automatically that can be done manually like this.

In about:config use the Search at the top for this pref - extensions.formautofill.creditCards.available - then right-click and Toggle that pref to True."

I have not utilized about:config in the browser before. I've used something similar in Thunderbird, but I seem to never remember exactly how to get to that file. I'll write it down this time in hopes I can access it. Firefox v77.0, Windows 10. p.s. When I try to search in Help for "how to find about:config" or any other form of the question, Help simply gives me all results that include "about:config".

Thank you for your time, --Vic

Hi all,

I am trying to customize my Firefox on Mac because the tabs on top interfere with the menu bar, thus I only want tree-style tab extension to work on the side, with the tabs on top disabled.

I followed this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1184674#answer-1028260 as well as this clear guide on how to create userChrome.css: https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html When I tried to restart the browser, I seemed to have been logged out of my profile, with all customization gone and a standard white (instead of black) menu. I deleted the chrome folder and it is normal again now.

I suspect the userChrome.css file should contain more than just the one line I tried to add: #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } ; Is there any location where I can copy my current intra-browser customization into the userChrome.css file?

How to disable: "Your internet connection was restored" notifications? – Terribly annoying and only started in the last version 77.0.1 very recently. I rather switch to another browser if I cannot get rid of this. Checked my 3 plug-ins, but cannot find anything there, nor if it is something on Facebook I cannot find it. Any idea?

It's good to have those built-in shortcuts, but it's stupid you can't modify them. When I use this website I can't input the division sign by pressing / on the keypad because it's the shortcut for Quick Find. I guess this is because the place to input is not a normal text box like in WolframAlpha , but part of the whole webpage(?). Add the function to customise shortcuts is much easier than let Firefox recognise and deal with this situation, I think. In fact, most software supports customising shortcuts, so I'm surprised to find there's no way for Firefox to do that.

I am running FF 77.0.1. This has been an issue for awhile however. In Options, under Applications/PDF, there is no Preview in Firefox option. I've tried quitting FF, renaming/moving handlers.json; but on re-opening the relevant section remains the same(action=0). I discovered about:config pdfjs.disable=false, previously it was set to true. Then in Options/Applications/PDF, "Firefox" is an option to open, and the action=3 in handlers.json, however the behavior of downloaded pdfs is the same (downloaded). (This is trying example pdfs from different sites). I've tried changing about:config security.cps.enable=false, no change. I've also seen a plugin to "fix content types" that shows up on this site, but it didn't change anything. From what I gather, action=3 should be Preview in Firefox, not Firefox, and all pdfs are being downloaded. Is there a way to fix this? Not seeing pdfs in browser is significantly annoying.

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

Firefox has been saving images from some sites as webp instead of JPG for a long time. There have been repeated threads on this subject which get locked and then pushed into the long grass.

Sure, I could botch a solution by installing an add-on to convert them, or I could use something like XnView (which I do, periodically, and in bulk) after the save event has happened, or I can edit about:info to tell Firefox not to accept webp - but this breaks functionality for some sites (like eBay), but I have found that in the end I have had to start switching to Microsoft Edge to do my browsing for a number of sites because Mozilla Firefox are ignoring repeated user requests to provide a simple option to STOP doing this.

I don't want to save any files as webp - save them as PNG if you like, or jpg, but I use an ancient copy (v3.24) of ACDsee (from the days of Windows 98) for my image browsing, sorting, viewing etc because it is perfect, blisteringly quick, has no extra editing or other functionality which I don't need or want, and it doesn't bloat up anywhere with thumbnail files... but sadly webp didn't exist back then so it doesn't support it. I have used a number of much more up to date browser-viewers, but there is nothing can touch this OLD version of ACDsee for basically brilliant design.

I'm not changing my image viewer. It's non-negotiable.

I WILL however change my web browser if I have to, if the developers of the browser continually kick into the long grass to lock, hide away and pretend there's isn't an issue which has been repeatedly flagged as an annoyance for so many users.

I have been using one form or other of 'Mozilla' family of browsers since the days of Quarterdeck Mosaic. I don't particularly want to switch my loyalty, especially to Microsoft, but if they are listening to what customers want and providing it, and Mozilla are not, what else is there to do ?

I am a retired systems developer. I cannot envisage this being SUCH a big ask.

Modern software treats its users like idiots and takes away control, doing everything it's assumes on their behalf that they will want.

It is not difficult to provide an option within settings for when saving webp files to save as webp, png or jpg with conversion if necessary. All you need to do is hear the screams and respond. :)

Windows 10 gesture two finger swipe left and two finger swipe right doesn't work in Firefox. Two finger swipe left allows user to go history backward and two finger swipe right allows user to go history forward. These gestures work in Firefox if the user hold Alt key and preform the gestures. But most of the users don't like to hold Alt key and preform the gestures. Please fix that issue.

Users have been complaining about update nags for several years, and when a solution is found via about:config, Mozilla typically puts a spanner in the works and deletes the relevant config items like 'app.update.silent', 'app.update.doorhanger... etc.

I just want to remove the popup, not the ability to update. I'll update when I'm good and ready, and I don't need a popup each and every day nagging me to do so.

If Mozilla must ape Chrome, then aping Chrome's non-nagging update policy would be a good move.

I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 . . . I was doing this (below), to customize my header and footer, but in this version of FF, I no longer see this in Options - only in: about:config . . . keyword "footer" . . . there, I would have to change it for 5 different ways of printing (to printers or to PDF)

I need to get rid of printing the URL in the footer - many times, it's too long, and I don't need it.

Where did the Page Setup option go?

I see in the current Print Options, you have to go to - More Settings / Margin / Custom - to see those. Why would they put this so many levels down?

It used to be: File / Page Setup / Margins & Header/Footer . . . "Customize" Headers & Footers:

Option 1 (left) . . . there are two leading spaces:

 > > &T
 > > &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Option 2 (left) . . . get rid of the ">"s, and just have the two leading spaces:

 &T
 &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Hello, I am trying to return to using Firefox after many years away. I need to disable the shortcut keys but cannot find where or how to turn them off. This seems very odd as I am sure its a popular need, at least for certain keys let alone the complete set. As a disabled user I use a program called Phrase Express to fill in all sorts of things for me including online forms. However, firefox's shortcut keys are interferring with those of the much more useful Phrase Express. I am astonished that a simple answer was not easily available whilst searching other questions etc. However, many similar questions were many years out of date and lead me to various addons which were no longer active. This cannot be a difficult thing to do, after all many people (will never even use them and even programs developed my single progammers usually have a simple series of options available in settings to turn them on or off or indeed customise them.

So, can someone please help, the need to use phrase express is essential to cope with my neck and arm problems but I wish to leave Chrome and more importantly Google behind me.

Thank you in advance for your guidance and assistance.

This is driving me nuts.

My desired behavior is that, when I middle-mouse-click on a hyperlink, Firefox launches a new window (not a tab) with that URL.

This is how it was working before a power interruption forced my computer to restart tonight, and my desired behavior has gone away.

The middle mouse button works for other functions; and, middle-clicking on bookmarks in my bookmark bar does launch a new window with that bookmark as expected. However, middleclicking a hyperlink does nothing.

I have browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick = false and in the options menu, "open links in tabs instead of new windows" is unchecked. Additionally I have set browser.link.open_newwindow = 2.

Can anyone help me here? This is driving me slightly batty.
