I can't find a way to enable natural scroll with the touchpad - down movement on the touchpad means the screen moves down - in Firefox. I've gone into about:config and set mousewheel.default.delta_multiplier_y to -100, but that only affects the mouse, not the trackpad.

Resetting default actions for attachments in TB 78.7.0 on macOS 10.14.6

Hello TB gurus:

I'm Bob Shimizu, and I have two problems.

1) When I tried to "open with" on a file attachment, I mistakenly chose the wrong application. In this case I tried to open a .pdf in Excel. Obviously that won't work, so I tried to reset it. Following a search, I found this page: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Actions_for_attachment_file_types. It instructed me to open my profile and delete mimeTypes.rdf.

I think that the doc is behind the release, because when I search in my Profile, I can find no such file. So, I'm stuck and now I have to save the file and open it with the right app rather than opening it IN TB. Bummer.

2) In 78.7.0 I can no longer change the color of text in an email, which I find very useful. Yes, you can choose colors in a number of ways, via a circular "spectrum" or a selection of colored pencils, but the color you select actually won't work. Bummer again.

Help, please? Sincerely, Bob

When hit shift and click somewhere in the webpage or type something, the "Page Inpector" keep poping out (see attached screenshot), this is so annoying that I basically cannot type any capital letters. I have tried the option "Refresh Firefox", the browser seems to be set to default mode, but the issue still exsist. Tried for a new keyboard, the same. I searched the forum, but unfortunately cannot find a proper solution. Hope anyone can help me with this, otherwise I have to consider to change my default browser (which I really don't want to because of such a simple but annoying problem).

Thanks a lot for anyone could provide any suggestions !

Been using FF since 2005ish. (Me 1946) Latest version (90.0.2 (64-bit) annoys me greatly because I can't remove the unwanted 'Pocket' BS. I've followed several online 'advices' on this, including this site, & still it persists.

FF is getting like IE IMO, with all the awkwardness to remove unwanted Bloatware. For an 'Ordinary User'. Could some knowledgeable FF user please explain, in language I can understand, English, but not very Tech Savvy) how I remove Pocket from the browser Thanks.

Hello,

I updated firefox and it's now hard to tell when one tab ends and another begins when you have multiple inactive tabs next to each other, which is a major annoyance.

The way to solve this would be to have the inactive tabs have a border around them like the active tab, have them have a different background color from the toolbar, or otherwise have some kind of separator between them. I saw another answer that gave a temporary solution, but the same answer said the solution was going to stop working in a future update. Is there a permanent solution?

Hi all,

I use Firefox. On https://www.archivesspace-pi.nl/repositories/11/archival_objects/42349 we want to show the pdf in the browser but, unfortunately, this doesn't work (the downloading of the pdf functions well, by the way). Trying to solve the problem I did download the PDF-reader, but it still does'nt work. (In Chrome and Edge the showing of pdf's is no problem). What do I have to do?

Thanks for the help/advice!

I've updated to the latest MacOS Monterey beta and all gesture plugins are broken when used with the trackpad. This is not unique to Firefox, it also happens in Chrome.

If you try to make a two fingers gesture (right click) on the trackpad, it will start scrolling the page instead of registering as a right click and hold for the gesture to start, making gestures impossible to perform.

Does anyone know about a work around for this?

I need to reorder Firefox windows on the taskbar badly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also it would be useful to have custom titles. Both things should persists after PC restart. I tried couple programs, but they don't work. Devs said: position of Firefox window on the taskbar is store in Firefox and their program has no way of remembering that! Also windows get randomly shuffled each time, it is impossible to use like this. It takes me forever to find right window. It is annoying the hell out of me. How Firefox dev team doesn't fix something that basic??? This is so stupid...

Please tell me there is some solution...

I'm using Firefox 90 on Linux (Fedora 33) and MATE Desktop. Before I upgraded to Firefox 90, I set widget.non-native-theme.enabled to false to revert the scrollbar appearance to the system theme, as per this question: Scrollbar appearance changed after Firefox upgrade. It worked on Firefox 89, but as soon as I upgraded to Firefox 90, the scrollbars went back to the non-native appearance.

After the upgrade, the widget.non-native-theme.enabled is still set to false, but apparently ignored. However, I noticed that the other widget.non-native-theme.gtk.scrollbar.* settings that allow scrollbar appearance customization inside Firefox are ignored as well. If I set widget.non-native-theme.enabled back to true, then the other scrollbar settings work as expected. This tells me that widget.non-native-theme.enabled does work, but the system scrollbar theme is not picked up as expected. This looks like a bug to me.

Dear all,

I find that the folders other than "Inbox" are not automatically synchronized therefore the new messages are not notified. In the "Folder Properties", I already checked "When getting new messages for this account, always check this folder", but the new messages are only checked manually.

I guess that this is related to the PUSH notification of my IMAP account. I wonder whether there are ways to make this automatic. I use "K-9 Mail" on my Android device which checks these folders automatically if properly configured. I don't think that this is a deficient of PUSH notification.

Best, Frank

Скажите пожалуйста как по аналогии с chrome можно отключить автоматическое разрывание в Firefox?
