Since the last major design release I've found that the 'Desktop site' setting is no longer sticky and has to be re-enabled every time a tab is reloaded. This is annoying for sites that I always view in Desktop layout.

Just updated Firefox to v. 65.0, it will no longer ask to where I want file save to. As it use to. Note that this is what I set it to do in preference for in Files and Applications section. The files are being saved to the other option "Save files to" even though I've selected always ask. Please note that I did do a launch of Firefox after confirming changes, and even a reboot of Mac OS.

Thanks

I have FF on the Win 10 startUp list; but since last week, the FF icon on the task bar highlighted, but not seen in the screen, that I learned yesterday, rightclick->move->arrowkey to move FF to a position desired, now for every On instance, including after re-booting the window.

How to fix FF a position for every new window instance?

Hi All,

I love working with firefox with it'useful add-ons like for example add block plus. I even donated to Firefox a time ago which i rarely do. The mobile version however, does NOT support any add-ons and here's the problem: I can only chose for google, bol.com and wikipedia as a standard search engine. Bol.com is a commercial company and probably paid for it's entry in Firefox, so there IS a possibility to ADD a new embedded search engine optionbetween the 3 others.....

Since i dislike google with it's commercial instead of searchal results (duckduckgo is much better in this behavior) I only can end up with wikipedia and of course buy a book at BOL.com :-(

My call to the developers: PLEASE ADD DUCKDUCKGO TO THE STANDARD SEARCH ENGINE OPTIONS!!!

If there is a workaround, just let me know but for now, with the evercookies in safari intruding my privacy, and a stubbern Firefox letting me do more than wanted actions to enter duckduckgo, I am better off with a 10 year old nokia since my "smart"phone turned into useless.....

In the support article "Find your device", it said that you need turn down the volume using volume down key to mute the phone.

For me, it is better to say that you can turn the ring off some where. For example, turn it off in https://find.firefox.com.

Is this true? I do not have a Firefox OS device.

One of my customers run an web application in Firefox and they want their users to just be able to use Firefox for that particular site. They run Firefox 42 today and we have managed to remove all the "bars" using the UserChrome.css folder. We have also applied some custom settings using the .cfg file. However, now they want to upgrade to Firefox 48 and I tried the same solution but it doesn´t work. For some reason UserChrome.css doesnt get copied to the profiles folder. If I manually copy it, it works.

In Firefox 42 the UserChrome.css is located here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\browser\defaults\profile\Chrome

Is there any changes done to the folder structure in Firefox 48? Do you have any suggestions how I can solve this?

The title is pretty much self explanatory. Whenever I reboot my computer (Ubuntu 16.04), firefox loses ALL of its data. Any persistent cookies are removed, any customizations I make to the title bar are removed, my extensions are gone, and I have to sign into sync again. It's like a completely fresh installation.

I want Firefox to remember my history at websites so I don't have to keep entering my username and passwords. I go into the Menu, click on Options, then Privacy, then choose the option to have Firefox remember my history. After that it works fine. However, when I shut off my computer and then turn it on again later the settings that I chose (to remember history) haven't been saved and I have to go through that whole process of Options, Privacy, Remember My History all over again. How can I get Firefox to remember/save my settings so I don't have to do this each time I turn on my computer? Thanks for any help you can provide on this.

We are currently using Firefox ESR 38.2.0 with our RHEL 6.7 workstations and need to change the network.negotiate-auth.allow-insecure-ntlm-v1 from the default of TRUE to FALSE.

We tried putting a .js file in /usr/lib64/firefox/defaults/preferences to change it, but the change is ignored.

When we try another setting in the file, such as perf("network.negotiate-auth.allow-insecure-ntlm-v1-https", false), then the change is made, however, with the ntlm-v1 setting, it is ignored in the file.

We can change the user_perf for network.negotiate-auth.allow-insecure-ntlm-v1 on a per user bases, but as an enterprise we would like to make this change for multiple users at once and not on a per profile.

Is there any way to do this, or is creating a script and placing it in /etc/profile.d the best option?

Thanks! Joe Giles
