Now on Firefox 100.0.1 On earlier versions of Firefox I was able to set a particular url for my home(opening) page. That is still true. However, on past versions I was also able to make *my home page* appear on every tab I opened. On the current edition I get a choice of only Firefox Home Page (default) or Blank page. I cannot get my home page on the new tab. How can I bypass the restrictions of the settings under Home to get my home page on every tab?

That the question I need an answer to. Everything below this is explanation of why I want this and a complaint about how Firefox changes things that I would appreciate being passed on to the developers.

                                                                    <---------------------->

If I choose Firefox Home Page (default), I am *forced* to use the address box to put in my search terms. I have become accustomed to the various search engines with their splash screens - with the nice big search box in the middle of the screen (both horizontally and vertically). It is absolutely unnerving to me to try to type in the box in the middle and have nothing show up there but up above in the address box.

I am a project person in a multi-tasking world, which means whether I like it or not, I have to multitask too. For me to do this successfully, all my tools need to be where I expect and perform as I expect them. Even putting duckduckgo.com in the current home page/new window setting, doesn't get the duckduckgo splash page, but even though I'm not that technically advanced, I found a way of getting it in my home page window. However, the tabs section doesn't offer me an opportunity to put my own choice in.

I wish Firefox would stop tinkering with otherwise minor things. I understand fixing found vulnerabilities. I understand providing new services and technology when they're developed. But why force people to use search and tabs the way Firefox wants them to rather than the way the user is accustomed to.

I started up my computer today; I tried to open up a youtube video in picture-in-picture add-on, but it wasn't there. I restarted my computer, completely closed firefox, looked into settings for the picture-in-picture settings that are supposed to be under 'Browsing' in General but I can't find the settings for it there either. I have tried using other video sites, but nothing works.

I have the option set to always ask me if I want to open a pdf with browser, acrobat, or to download. I usually select open with Acrobat and, for the last few months, I have been getting an unwanted download as well. I found in the help articles that this is now the default action. For me, it usually means that at the end of a session i have to go to my desktop (my optioned destination for downloads) and clean it up by deleting every file I have looked at.

I recommend that you make that functionality optional. I just want to view the vast majority of things I open. For the few that I might want to download after viewing them, i would prefer to take a proactive step to download them after I have reviewed them.

Recently, I've started noticing these quick action tiles in the URL drop-down menu (I've attached a screenshot). There's a help icon to their right, but it just goes to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/quick-actions-firefox-search-bar?as=u&utm_source=inproduct which is a 404. I found this bugzilla bug, but I'm not 100% sure on how the versioning works (even after consulting Wikipedia). The bugzilla entry mentions it's fixed on 105.0a1. I'm using 105.0b6 of the Developer Edition.

Hi all,

Recently, my win 10 crashed and although I managed to recover some operative, I found to my horror that the desktop screen text size and contrast cannot be changed now. The current default setup is a real eye sorer, so I opened personalization settings but there is nothing on how to change this very theme, other than other posts suggesting entering the regedit system files. I am very reluctant to tinker with this given the Win10 application crashes. Running maintenance doesn´t do much. I notice that Firefox also has access to this very text size and font theme for web domains, but I am very wary again of tinkering an unknown. What the heck can one do, confidently without the system resetting itself? One thing is for sure, it seems Win10 home edition update 21H1/2 versions is basically treating users very badly, as if MS wants to ignore them. Bless us all when the embedded caption suggests "ready to update to Win11". I´m highly inclined to bin it.

I have recently set Outlook Mail to send desktop notifications when email is received. This works when the setting is on. However I have noticed twice in 3 days the setting has been turned off- but not by me! This is unacceptable. I would be grateful if you can advise me of anything I can do to ensure that when I change a setting/preference in FF that it stays changed until I select a different setting myself. In the case of email it is important as may miss something important. Thank you,

I have recently bought a new laptop and installed Firefox, which I have been using for a long time. After signing into my Firefox account, everything synced over to my new Firefox account, apart from the colorways theme that I chose with the Firefox 94 update - mine is "Foto - Soft". Is there any way that I can get this theme on my newly installed version of Firefox? Thanks.

I don't know what this is, what it's called, or why the someone in your UI/UX team continues to think that it's a good idea to change the keyboard navigation in the browser with all these new, special, or whatever controls that are ultimately useless.

How do I turn this off?

Frequently when I update Firefox something stops working the way I want it to. So after the last update I disabled updates. That was a while ago (version 89) and my browser was getting pretty stale. So I backed everything up, reenabled updates, and now I have version 104.

And, of course, something is broken now. The context menus when I right click are not functioning as before. The userChrome.css is still there in the chrome folder in my profile and has the same contents. The option toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets is set to true. But it doesn't work anymore. I added a line to change the color of the tab toolbar and that worked. So userChrome.css is being read and acted upon. But the other command (I whittled it down to just one additional command for testing) is ignored.

Here is what my userChrome.css looks like right now:

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");

  1. context-openlinkintab { display:none!important; }
  2. TabsToolbar{ background-color: #CCCCCC !important }

But the "Open Link in New Tab" still appears in the context menu when I right click a link. It didn't do this before the upgrade to 104. Did something break in between version 89 and 104 or is it some other oddity?

Any ideas?

This is a recent change -- the desktop browser didn't do this until a few weeks ago. It now plays slideshows automatically. This feature is called Auto-Rotation, but it has nothing to do with rotating the display on a phone or tablet (although that feature has the same name). This feature automatically rotates among the slides in a slideshow. It's incredibly annoying, especially since I typically forget its on (or don't realize I'm looking at a slideshow) and it changes to the 2nd slide just as I have begun reading the 1st. I then have to turn Auto-Rotation off and go back to the 1st slide to continue. When I remember, I have to hurry to turn Auto-Rotation off before it moves to the 2nd slide. Is there any way to turn this off? I can't find one by looking through Settings, and there's nothing on this subject in Help, that I can find. For what it's worth, whoever thought this was a good idea was wrong, but if there's a way to change so it's not the default, I'll be content.

Weird (indirect?) scroll via touch pad

Machine information: OS: Manjaro Linux x86_64 Host: 80TG Lenovo V110-15IAP Kernel: 5.19.1-3-MANJARO DE: Plasma 5.24.6 Xorg WM: KWin CPU: Intel Celeron N3350 (2) @ 2.400GHz GPU: Intel HD Graphics 500 Firefox: 103.0.2 (x64)

Problem: Scrolling in firefox is feeling weird: instead of smooth scrolling with 2 fingers (like on smartphone with 1 finger) firefox scrolls only by steps only when I move my fingers enough to trigger scrolling. In other applications I can scroll smoothly and fully control scrolling, I can scroll exactly N pixels if I want. In firefox I can only move by N pixels per M cm fingers movement on touch pad.

It's feeling as indirect input. I can feel same feeling on Windows with simple mouse. Firefox scrolls slower than Opera.

How to reproduce and find difference with other applications:

  1. Download Firefox and another application with direct input (Opera or Telegram for example)
  2. Scroll Firefox
  3. Scroll another application

I've lost the ability to use site-based hotkey shortcuts. For example, if I pull up Google Docs, if I type a statement and try to bolden the text with Ctrl + B, I get the Bookmark sidebar instead. Ctrl + I for italics? Instead I get page info. Ctrl + U to underline? Instead I get a wall of coding. This issue is a consistent thing on all websites, for a variety of hotkey commands.

I can't find where I can change, or turn off hotkeys in general, the last three hours of scouring the internet, including the FF forums, have been no help. I can't tell if this is a setting I can't find, I change with an update, but whatever it is, it needs to be reverted. I'd very much prefer not to switch browsers over an issue that should be a changeable setting.

Hello, I am eyesight impaired. I am having trouble when trying to use the search bar on the home screen. When the search is typed in the home screen it automatically swaps to the ADDRESS BAR SEARCH. The text is so small I cannot see it very well as a result my typos are abundant, very frustrating. Using the home search bar rather than the address bar I can control the size of the text and use it with no problems. At some point this home search bar function changed, I have tried to use the address bar in place of the home search bar but as I said, it is too small to see. It also makes it almost impossible if you want to search a valid link instead of going to the link because the address bar interprets it as a link and just goes to it, also frustrating. I see a lot of talk about this issue but I don't see any final correction. Is there some way someone could put an effort into this issue for us diminished septuagenarian programmers from the days of old? Thanks in advance, Jim
