Firefox updated on my work machine concurrent to a machine self-restart and VPN update. The VPN update bricked my access to shared drives for my work network so I assumed the issue lie somewhere with lack of internet access and inability to connect to said network. Now the VPN is up and running with normal file access restored, but all my FireFox info is gone. I see on my desktop a file called Old FireFox data and begin googling the recovery process. I generated a new profile in FireFox and copied over all files from the old profile to the new including key4.db and logins.json to no avail.

There are no passwords, no login info, no cookies, no bookmarks, nothing is left. Also, I cannot copy any of these files. I can only move them for some reason. I've tried to back up these files, but they are move-only somehow.

Any advice?

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

When I record screencasts, I don't want people to see what extensions I'm using. For one, it's distracting, for second, it's a privacy issue.

In chrome (iron, opera...) I can quickly drag and resize the extensions area so nothing is seen. Fast an easy.

Is there a way to do this in Firefox. I am open to extensions or keyboard shortcuts as well!

(Pinning to overflow menu is not a solution. It takes many clicks and a long time.)

Thank you for any help.

I am going to set up a default search engine with the URL myself.

Please explain me how to set http://blackle.com/ as default search engine. Without using the home button or an existing bookmark every time.

Apparently Mozilla did an update and not it defaults to it's own printer dialog box. I hate it. There is a link to use the system print dialog box but it only works for that specific print job. I can't find a setting to force Firefox to always use the system printer dialog box. Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser becasue thr Firefox dialog box sucks.

Automatic Login Progression for Multiple Email Acct Logins

I am running Thunderbird 52.9.1 (32-bit) on a WIN XP SP3 computer and Thunderbird 86.0b3 (32-bit) on a WIN 10 machine. Both computers use the same keyboard & monitor via a KVM switch. When logging in on the older WIN XP computer the login popup automatically progresses to the next email account for login when the current one is successful. I have 3 active email accounts loaded the exact same way in TB in both machines. When logging in on the Win 10 machine the TB login window will not automatically progress to the next email account so that I can log in. I have to manually move the mouse cursor to the next account. I have the same 3 email accounts loaded in the WIN 10 version as I do on the WIN XP SP3 machine. Is there any kind of hidden command that I can set/reset to have Version 86.0b3 (32-bit) automatically progress through all three email logins like it does in the much older 52.9.1 (32-bit) version? Or does this need to go in as a suggestion for future versions of TB?

Hi,

I have been working with the Style Editor from the Developer Tools. As you can see from the screenshot, there's a massive list of style sheets.

I'm looking for a certain style sheet to edit, however the list is not sorted alphabetically. So I don't know how to find the name of my style sheet other than just trying to scroll through the whole list to spot my specific sheet. This every time take hours for me to find what I'm looking for.

Is there any way to find a style sheet in that list faster than manually scrolling through the list? Something like Ctrl + F, or a way to sort that list alphabetically?

Thanks for your help!

Recently, I updated Firefox (as it regularly bothers me to do so) and it added an annoying new feature that appears whenever I type anything into the address bar. It used to just provide search suggestions from my list of bookmarks, but now below the list of search options is a separate segment with "This time, search with:" followed by multiple icons--in my case, Google (my default browser), bookmarks, tabs, history, and settings. And you know how when you're sometimes typing something you want to find and the desired result is toward the bottom of the list, so instead of pressing the down arrow key to get to it, you press the up arrow to start from the end…well now, when I try that on the address bar, it cycles through each icon before letting me get to the list's end.

I know it sounds like a petty complaint, but it's annoying and inconvenient to have to do it each and every time since it's habitual to cycle from top to bottom or vice versa on basically every other search bar. I went the route of "Settings > Options > Search > Search Shortcuts" to see if I could get rid of these icons, but just like how it doesn't let you get rid of search engines when you only have one on the list, it doesn't give you an option to remove these superfluous icons.

These Mozilla dumbasses seem to lack foresight and/or consideration with the way they limit user preferences. Can anybody give me any alternative solutions? Please spare me the snide answers like "switch to Chrome" (already considering it). If there's a way to simply circumvent these icons in the address bar rather than getting rid of them entirely, that would be more that enough: I just don't know how to go about it. Anyway, thank you for taking the time to read my submission/rant.

Hi,

Why its not possible for over 10 years now to filter my mails by sender domain? (optionally respecting subdomains) ?? Neither by Thunderbird nor any other mail tool.

Do someone know any tool, addon, setting to manage my mails by sender-domain ?? please!!! Its not an option to build thus filters manually! There are too many domains meanwhile.

It seems too easy: on mail receive -> move mail to folder named by received mail domain.

Or can anyone explain to me, why its impossible?

I set the colors of visited links and unvisited links in [Options]-[General]-[Language and Appearance]-[Color].

If you want to take effect, you need to select [All] in [Use the color you selected above to overwrite the color specified on the page]

In this way, all styles of all website pages: text color and background color are all changed.

Is there a way to only change the color of the link, while the text and background colors still use the web page's own; or specify that only the domain name pages in the list list use the specified color, and the website's own default color is used for those that are not explicitly specified?

it's just a blank page. how do i access about:config?


while i'm here i'll take the opportunity to say how much i hate the new firefox. it was perfectly fine the way it was. the old firefox doesn't work now but ignoring that it was an excellent browser. now look at what they've done to it. never mind the privacy stuff. everything's all hidden away under multiple clicks, stuff you used to be able to do in a click now has to be done manually. why have they done all this? who is it benefitting? it's not even faster like they're advertising it as. i only finally installed this because the old one's finally kicked it. i want the old one back. where are all the add ons? one i used to use that was totally indispensible doesn't work on this one. and where's about:config?
