When I open "Extensions" (about:addons) by clicking the Extensions icon, I want it to start on my own extensions, not Recommendations. How can I make "Extensions" open to the actual Extensions tab? Or can I remove the "Recommendations" tab entirely?

I already saw [to remove 'Recommendations' tab in about:addons]. But about:config

 extensions.htmlaboutaddons.recommendations.enabled = false

only removes recommendations from the Extensions tab. And adding

 extensions.getAddons.showPane = false

does not work, the Recommendations tab is still there.

I have installed the Multi-Account Containers add-on. When I right-click on a link on a page, I am missing the Firefox Multi-Account Containers element shown in the Multi-Account Containers KB article (see attached screenshot KBContextMenu.png).

My context menu looks like the attached screenshot MyContextMenu.png.

  1. Has the Multi-Account Containers add-on been updated, and the KB article needs to be revised?
  2. Is there a setting that I need to do to show this context meny element?

Hi! I recently made the switch from Chrome to Firefox and Im liking it aside from this one thing. When Im watching a video in full screen, moving the cursor to the top doesnt pop up Macs top bar (File, Edit, ..... battery, time).

This sounds like a banality but I mainly watch videos while getting ready, working etc, and I really need to see the time! Im used to always keeping the cursor at the top to see it. I searched around in settings and forums but didnt find any fix. The only solution seems to be to not use full screen which I think we can all agree just sucks in a major way.

Im using MacOS Monterey 12.3.1 and Firefox 102.0.1. Is there a way to fix this or nah? Any info much appreciated!

The header bar at the top of the screen has disappeared from Firefox when run from my desktop computer (Image 1), but not when run from my laptop computer (Image 2). With the desktop, the maximize, minimize etc buttons are now on the same toolbar as the File Edit View etc buttons and there is no indication as to what website is being viewed. This problem occurs even when Firefox is run in Troubleshooting mode. Both instantiations are v. 119.0. How can I get the header back on my desktop instantiation?

And while I'm at it: With the current version of Firefox, the bookmarks toolbar is below the list of open websites, whereas several versions ago it was the other way around, which seems much more intuitive. Is there a way to switch them back so that the bookmarks menu is at the top?

Thanks!

My Ubuntu distro offered a Thunderbird upgrade from 102 to 115.3.1 and I wish I hadn't taken it. After spending a lot of time getting Thunderbird display to be somewhat like my usual view, I am still unable to restore several favorites.

1. The status bar no longer shows me the total of unread messages 2. To save real estate on the screen, I usually do not display the File menu bar but the hamburger menu drop down in 115.3.1 is missing a lot of items that I used - empty trash being one of them and view>all headers is another. 3. The 'Get Messages' button on the top row doesn't enable me to be selective by mail account - again I have to display the menu bar and so lose screen space. 4. I cannot get the threaded message view to display lines showing the links between messages.

Maybe there are configuration changes I need to make? I'd appreciate whatever help can be offered. Thank you.

Most of my received email is formatted ok, but occasionally I get one where the message is one long sentence and it displays as one long horizontal line, necessitating a lot of scrolling to read. The last person to complain about this did not receive a reply. Is there any chance this could be implemented soon?

Hi,

Before updating Firefox yesterday, I was able to see my 2 bookmarks folders in the Firefox toolbar. Now after updating, I need to click a button with 2 chevrons pointing right which then shows me only 1 of my bookmarks folders.

There are actually 2 folders in here, which I can see if I go to the Bookmarks menu, but clicking the chevron button only shows a single folder. However the problem is that up until yesterday, those folders were right in the toolbar itself without any chevron button.

Has there been a change in the latest version? I don't see anything about this in the release notes.

Thanks,

- Tate

Is it possible to find a way to make Mailing Lists sit at the top of their Address Book by default?

I have looked for an answer but can't seem to find anyone asking this question. I am sure that previous versions (to 102/115) did this naturally but the new versions are different.

For example, in one Address Book I have created a mailing list called Regulars. Previously, all mailing lists show at the top whenever viewing the Address Book, so Regulars would be at the top followed by the first "A" email address. Now, the mailing lists are integrated alphabetically, so that Regulars appears down the list, amongst the "R" emails.

With the contact list now so excessively spread out (yes, I have tried and failed at that unfixable problem), it requires lots of scrolling and searching to find mailing lists. This is illogical, considering the purpose of mailing lists is to make it easy to select a whole group of addresses quickly.

At the moment, I have found a workaround by numbering the list (eg 1. Regulars) but I would prefer to find a way to make the lists behave as they used to. Is that possible?

(I am familiar with userchrome, at a basic level, so I would be able to insert code if necessary).

Hi, I upgraded to the above version last week and I love it...until yesterday and today when I needed to print out a couple of different emails. Prior to upgrading to Supernova, I never had an issue with printing, now I do. Prior, if I clicked on what appeared to be a one page email, it would print out on one page, no issues. Now, if I try and print what should be a one page email, it previews as being three pages. Page one is the headers all by itself at the top of the page with the rest of the page as blank, page two shows as the body of the email, and then page three shows the footers of the email and the attachment list (if any). Why is it doing this and how can I get it back to printing everything on one page like it should be?

I have attached copies of what the pages look like as three pages instead of being on one page like it should be.

Thanks in advance.

We are looking to mass deploy Firefox x64 for Windows to all staff in our organization, using SCCM. I know you can set a default home page in mozilla.cfg for all users, including future users who don't yet have a profile on the computer Firefox is installed on. Is there a similar option so I can configure Firefox to always show the menu bar for all users? Preferably, another line I can add to mozilla.cfg so that I can easily copy that to all our machines? Thanks.

Hi I have been a user of Firefox for many a year, and this is the first tme I've come across an intrusive problem. Since updating to the latest version, I find I can no longer change the icon on a URL shortcut. I had quite a few of them, which helped distinguish (obviously) what I might want to select. That was then. Now, I have a load of indistinguishable Fireox logos which make finding the shortcut I want imossible. On going to change the icons, I find the Website Document tab in properties is no longer there .. while I have Firfox installed. Remove Firefox and the capability magically returns. I have re-installed Firefox in case of corruption, with no change. Before I remove Firefox permanently (which I'd be loathe to do), does anyone know the cause ... or solution or workaround?

As per old thread at: https://support.mozilla.org/zu/questions/1365405 which has since been archived.

As of version 113, this solution is being suppressed. I occasionally see the x appear briefly on the left when a tab is selected, but then it reverts. So far I have not been able to work out what setting is overriding this function, so I've just rolled back to 112 and used the "--allow-downgrade" flag on the firefox shortcut so I can still load my old profile, but understand this is not a safe option in the long term.
