Hi guys, I'm using Firefox for the first time today on my smartphone. So far I have used Vivaldi.

Now I miss a possibility in Firefox to get directly to the start page with one click, and thus to get to the favourites (most used pages, collections, ...).

In Vivaldi there is a kind of home button in the middle. Is that also possible with Firefox? Or how do you do it?

Thank you!

Why was this changed? I always used view image, and if I needed it in a new tab or a new window I could use control + click or shift + click. This literally removes a feature for no reason. I don't want my images in a new tab all the time, sometimes I don't need the current tab. I'm just dumbfounded

Is there any way to temporarily disable Firefox (and Thunderbird) update reminders? Mozilla seems to be updating its software so often that I'm getting too many reminders and it's interfering with my work flow. I understand the need to keep software up to date as often as possible but this has now got ridiculous, and I am on the verge of changing my default browser from Firefox to Safari, Chrome or Vivaldi. Please stop forcing every little tiny update onto your users!

Or is there some sneaky little way I haven't noticed under Preferences which already does enable me to do this?

I don't know if it was a recent update or what but I am using Windows 10 Home. Please help so I don't have to find a new browser.

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

Why did Firefox developers simply disable "Backspace" instead of making it a selection in "Settings"? I understand why some users can't stay "focused" and lose typed data, but the rest of us really like the backspace function to go back a page.

Yes you can re-enable it (& I did so) using "About:Config" but that's akin to REGEDIT and not for the faint of heart...

Am I going to have to make this edit every time FF Updates? and on each of my PCs?

Is there an option to get the old behavior back? When I'm browsing for reference images and I want to just have an image or video in a window I could just right click and use view image/video. Now it's open in a new tab.

You essentially just added one useless click to the whole thing which is me having to close the tab the image came from.

If you answer with, "You can just use copy image link and paste it in the same tab." You just turned what was right click then left click into right click, left click, move mouse over, click to highlight the address, ctrl+v

When I have to do this to hundreds of images every day, every single little click counts.

So, can I restore the old and better functionally? And really, when you do these changes, give an option to keep the old method or keep both.... Gesh...

Hello

Recently I chaged firefox font color and (font)background color; font color near white, (font)background color near black. From that time Youtube in_screen control button's (play/pause/sound/setting/full screen) background color changed to near white (default translucent) so the buttons became barely distinguishable.

I changed font/background color to the original, installed themes and addons but failed to set the buttons back to the original color.

Slidebar color changed to (font)background color.

I have eyes problem and some internet sites don't allow the dark mode, So I had to try browser color code editing for my eyes.

Could someone please tell me how to reverse the change or change the button's background color translucent?

I don't want to switch my browser to Chrome. I do want to upload music files to u tube music for my library there. Process is to open the u tube music library file and click on uploads and drag files from windows onto the page and it will upload. My problem is when I do this, the file I drag over shows a red circle with a line through it and will not upload to u tube music. It is the correct file type MP3. Is there a setting within firefox that I can change that could be preventing me from doing this? thanks. brian

A recent Thunderbird update started pasting links as text with an underlying link. I prefer to see and paste the actual link: http://..... so recipients know that it is a link and can see where it goes.

I can get around the new "feature" by pasting with ctrl/shift/V, but I keep forgetting and have to erase the formatted link and start over.

Is there, or should there be, an option to specify how one wants to paste links?

Thanks!
