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

Hello,

See on the joined image, older Firefox and last one. When this is a text in another language like this, this is ugly, and even on usual language, I'm not blind, I can see the old lighter underline!

Why this? Can I change it maybe in userChrome.css?

Read support article about importing username and password info direct from .CSV file. I see at the bottom of that article that if no such option presents (Import from file), I am to ensure that signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled is set to true. I don't see that operator within the listing of configuration options. I can create that operator and set it to true, but that doesn't make the 'import from file' option appear in the three dot drop down menu within the Logins and Passwords page. Has the title or location of the fileImport operator changed, been moved?

Hello everyone, I'm working on customizing the Firefox experience for users within my organization.

I have to really limit their access. One of those requests were to prevent users from minimizing their active Firefox window.

I've found articles like the one below that show how to hide all the buttons: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/906698

However it does not suit the purpose. since it removes all of them and only on full screen.

Is there a way I can just hide the minimize button so that the user can just hide the minimize button?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Whenever I open an Instagram profile or anything on that site the Back button will be greyed out as if the current (instagram) site was the first site that I visited in the current window or tab. No matter how many navigation moves and page/site changes I made previously in the same window/tab, it all just vanishes and I can't go back!

I had to reinstall Windows recently. For some reason, Firefox no longer seems to keep me logged in to Lastpass and Pushbullet. More than half of the time I load a new session, Lastpass will give me a cookies notice but does remember my details in the fields, whereas Pushbullet shoves a login screen in my face and I have to go through the hassle of signing in with Google.

My browser has always been set to erase everything on close, but this has never effected extensions, so I'm surprised it suddenly does so. I don't think my settings are any different than they have been previously. I've tried making the lastpass and pushbullet websites as exceptions and playing with various privacy settings but am unable to replicate the 'correct' behaviour I had before.

Am I missing something here please? Has something changed in recent versions of Firefox?

Settings are: Standard tracking protection Always do not track Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed is checked with Lastpass.com and Pushbullet.com as exceptions All options under 'Logins and passwords' unchecked Always use private browsing mode, remember browsing and download history, and remember search and form history are all unchecked Clear history when firefox closes is checked, and in settings, all boxes are checked

Recently, I noticed Firefox has a new printer dialogue box. When that dialogue box starting showing up, all of my two-sided print jobs are BACKWARDS. The back page is flipped 180 degrees from the front page. WRONG!

As a sanity check, I double-checked with Chrome and Opera. No problem. Double-sided print jobs print as usual (i.e., when you flip the page over in the horizontal direction, the print orientation remains correct).

HP1320 laser printer. Win 7 / 64 bit. HP printer driver.

Somehow, the new Firefox Browser printer dialogue overlay is overriding the HP printer driver. Please fix!

Even in safe mode, I cannot make a change to my default search engine stick; it always reverts to DuckDuckGo.

After changing the default search engine in Preferences->Search to, say, Ecosia Search, typing a space character in the address+search bar goes from a generic world favicon to DuckDuckGo. Restarting with a cleared cache doesn't help.

None of my addons are related to search except Ecosia Search. Even with Ecosia Search removed, I get the same behavior, the default search engine reverts to DuckDuckGo. In any case, safe mode with all addons disabled doesn't change that behavior.

If i remove DuckDuckGo from the list of search engines, I cannot search at all and I cannot choose a default search enigne from the drop down list in Preferences->Search.

Note that I can always choose an alternate search engine in the drop down search menu, and that works. Setting a default search engine doesn't work.

Any suggestions on how to make a search engine other than DuckDuckGo be my default search engine would be appreciated. As a bonus, an explanation of why I'm having this difficulty would be wonderful.

TIA.
