Who at Mozilla Firefox made the stupid decision to no longer offer the Adblock Plus add-on in Firefox browser on Android? What the hell? That is STUPID. AdGuard AdBlocker, uBlock Origin, and whatever other crap is available, are nothing compared to Adblock Plus. You need to put Adblock Plus back in the add-on options. I'm also emailing Adblock Plus to ask them, too, what the hell happened.

Recently, most of my PDF files that I open with Firefox have changed their icons from the Firefox HTML document icon (the purple icon in the image attached) to the Firefox PDF icon (the red icon in the image attached).

Before Firefox for Android v100 it was possible to show only pinned sites in the top sites section in the home screen. Now alongside my pinned sites (currently 3) there are 2 rows of 4 sites and 2 pages. All these other sites are pages related to my work, full of test URLs, 500 or 404 pages... and so on. How do I revert it to the old behavior?

I had jira as my default search engine (https://jira.<mydomain>.com). This continues to work on my existing profile. But i am unable to add it on a new profile, I get an error "Firefox could not install the search engine from: https://jira.<mydomain>.com/osd.jsp"

So, i tried copying the existing profile folder and using that folder for the new profile, but firefox removes the jira search engine and gives me a warning saying that the default search engine was changed to Google (screenshot attached)

Is there a way to get this added via a hack of some kind? I wanted separate profiles so that I keep my project profiles separated - bookmarks, cookies, scripts etc.,

When is Mozilla bringing back the "page" feature (or just a "print" command) so that users can print directly from the browser? This missing feature has been noted by countless support requests over the last two years. It's clearly something your user base wants. If Mozilla doesn't want its browser to go the way of Internet Explorer, it needs to listen to its customers.

I am in the USA. Every time, on any page or website that I need to provide credit card info, when I click in the box to type in the CC numbers/expiration date/CCV, a window pops up as it should (for auto-fill) with my credit card information. In that window, I can scroll over the different credit cards, click on the one I want to use, and it SHOULD auto-fill into the box where the numbers would normally be typed in. Now, the window still pops up and I can scroll over the credit cards and choose one, but when I click on any of the particular credit cards, the auto-fill doesn't work. The boxes in "settings" are checked to allow auto-fill. It worked for months, then just stopped. Thanks for your assistance!

I saw where this was a problem with Netflix, Amazon Video and other sites with Fire Fox and that one person even used professional version and still had the same problem.

What I cannot see is where he got the video codex that allow Netflix to work on Fire Fox version 88, let alone this newest version that Mozilla has created.

So, for a few months now, the preview panel in Firefox has been popping up with every successful download of a file from online. Its a bit inconvenient because anytime it pops up, it basically tabs me off a page and interrupts my writing or the like. This wasn't an issue last year when after successful downloads, the downloads icon in the toolbar just lights up blue to signify a successful download. The preview panel popping up every time Firefox successfully downloads something (due to reasons, I download files in bulk from multiple sources) is incredibly irritating. The problem goes away when I just remove the download icon/panel from the toolbar entirely. I just wanna know WHY this bizarre phenomenon happens.

I'm using a Mac Airbook with M1 chip, Monteray.

It is exceedingly frustrating to read the entire inboxes (8 email accounts) in tiny, tiny letters. Tried to upload screen shot but it didn't seem to work (just kept spinning).

I tried using the solution given by Toad-Hall here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1267898 But it didn't work.

I made the documents he said to make and put them in all 6 of my email profiles (i guess I have 6 profiles due to all the different email addresses in there?). But everything is still tiny, tiny letters. Very hard on the eyes.

When I go to view -> zoom, nothing gets bigger. The text within an individual email will enlarge, just not the text of the inboxes.

Please can you tell me a simple solution (I am not that techy and don't want to spend another 2 hours on fixing this) for how to get my thunderbird app to appear readable? Otherwise I think I will ruin my eyes! Thanks!

By the way even my excel and word items at 100% on the 13" screen are small. But I am able to enlarge that each time I open it.

Hello dear volunteers (followers),

After Firefox Update to 100.0, the Theme that I created (JOHN - Light Grey) stopped working properly. More Specific all drop-down and pull-down menus have been transformed to a "white" background color, overcoming the initial created one, which was "dark gray".

So I tried to revise (update) my "Theme". But this became impossible.

In Developer Hub, in Theme Generator there was a (pink) frame warning "the following manifest properties that your most recent version upload used in it's manifest are unsupported in this wizard and will be ignored: properties popup popup_text tab_loading So I couldn't edit the theme and even more I can't finish and save any changes. Well, Is there any skilled user to give me a hand ? I would appreciate too much any piece of advice ...

Herewith I attache relevant screenshots.

Thank you in advanced

Hi folks, I had a problem with this back in June 2021 when my previously black background to the menu bar (bookmarks etc) changed to a washed out grey. Chris Ilias and dbben both replied, and Chris sent me a video guide on how to install Photon Colours, which fixed the problem, thanks. However, today the same problem has re-occurred - ie grey background. Unfortunately, when I checked in the Themes menu I found that Photon Colours is no longer there. Grateful if you could tell me if there is a new fix for this so that I can re-instigate the black background to the toolbar. Many thanks Chris

Forgive me. I may have posted this question already but I can't find my post.

As we know port 10080 has been blocked by many if not all internet browsers and port 10080 is the port that most routers use for their "Guest" SSID access.

I have been told that it may be possible to configure FireFox "Nightly" or "Beta" to allow port 10080 access which is what my router uses for the Guest SSID.

This would be for an Android phone to be able to connect to the Guest SSID on my router using port 10080.

Does Nightly or Beta allow this and if so what are the reconfiguration instructions so I can allow port 10080 access on the Android phone?

Thank you for your help.
