I had created a number of new container categories (ie: news, financial, internet). This morning they are all gone, only the four that are in the add-on are left (personal, work, banking, shopping). I have sync turned on, even clicked the sync button again. I had a lot of sites set to open in particular containers, now they all ope in personal. If this is going to continue, is there a way to back up my list of containers? Using Firefox 103.0 (64-bit) on a windows 10 pc.

After doing an update to Firefox (currently on 102.0.1), the settings for what happens when I click on a PDF file always seems to reset to 'save file', when what I want (and what I have to keep changing back to) is 'Always ask'.

Is this a known issue or is it something about my environment that causes this?

My system is running Windows 11 on an HP laptop with an AMD 7-5800U CPU and 8Gb of memory. [I'm posting this on my desktop machine which doesn't seem to exhibit the same behaviour - Windows 10 on an Intel 8500 CPU and 16Gb of memory]

thanks for any advice.

Typically, when you right-click on a field or link or basically anywhere in a webpage the list of options appears or pops up at the point of the cursor. However, for some time now they all appear in the upper left corner of the Firefox browser.

In the screenshot attached, I performed the right-click from the "Find help..." field. But the list is in the upper left corner. The list appears there regardless of where I right-click on a webpage.

Is there a way to fix this so they appear at the point of the cursor?

Hi everyone,

a long time ago, Firefox on GNU/Linux didn't have this default behaviour I've described in the title of my question (but FF on Windows had this behaviour at the time, so I believe it was decided to unify the behaviour on all platforms).

The thing is: I truly dislike having the existing text selected automatically. When I click a precise location in the URL or Search field (where some text already exists), I expect the text cursor to locate at this exact spot, NOT the existing text to be entirely selected! With this "new" default behaviour, it now requires 2 clicks to achieve the same task (not what I'd call an improvement) and makes it really PAINFUL to construct a list of search terms (one by one) by copying/pasting them from the current web page (funnily, it proves to be less painful when copying text from another application, since the automatic selection of previously pasted search terms does NOT happen when pasting an additional term -> this is exactly the behaviour I'm expecting).

Historically, whenever I was willing to have the existing text SELECTED (I agree this can be useful from time to time), I used keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+L or Ctrl+K to move the text cursor to the URL or Search field (respectively).

All in all, the historical behaviour of FF on GNU/Linux was just fine (at least to me).

So my QUESTION today is: how to get this historical behaviour back? How to prevent the existing text from being selected when I just CLICK in the URL or Search field?

I've not been able to find a hidden option to configure this behaviour since FF on Linux changed the rule. So I'm afraid it doesn't exist... But if so, would it be possible to add such an option?

Thank you :)

Firefox 102esr has almost every menu, popup and screen in dark mode - which I find extremely difficult to read, given I'm antique.

I've tried all the modes like light, system etc nothing seems to fix it.

Am I going to need a stack of css code to fix it - code for each and everything I want to set back to light, or is there a setting to achieve this?

Since updating to 102.1 all words in quotes and new text in replies are marked red/wavy-underline as spell errors (as you type check is on). Right-click to correct shows no errors even if word is wrong.

This happens with English (Canada and UK) but not English US. [Cdn English is required.]

I have reinstalled the Canadian language pack but it still happens.

Tried switching languages, turning check on/off, restarting TB and more.

Ideas?

When I double click on a meesage in the main screen, it opens in a new window. However, for the last few months, Thunderbird has been creating unwanted tabs for some (but not all) messages, across the top of the main screen. I then have to close each of these. I have looked at Options and switched the tab option off, as far as I can see. Have I missed something please?

Since upgrading to Firefox 103.0.1 on Linux Mint I am noticing that clicking on the URL bar or typing anything into it now adds "Search with Google" and "Search with Amazon" in the dropdown URL suggestions. This is unwanted behaviour since I have those search engines disabled.

In searching for an answer I found some old suggestions such as setting browser.urlbar.unifiedcomplete to false. However this no longer works.
