I'm fed up with Mozilla nuking important extension I need for browsing and breaking stuff.

Extensions that add things to context menu such as Image Search Options are not showing, and no other similar extension will be of use to me even if it was working on mobile.

I will code myself a solution that work on mobile for me to use. I just want to know exactly who to add things to the context menu for Firefox on Android. Don't bother explaining anything else to me, I just want to fix that especific part that is broken.

Hi,

I'm the administrator for Dol Celeb, a website and there is some years ago, i've created an account for themes : https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/firefox/addon/dol-celeb/

We have changed or website design and i'd like to create a new theme for my community. The problem, i've no longer access to this account and i've no idea how to retrieve it. I've still got all Dol Celeb mail address but that seems no one is the related to this account.

Is there a way to do something ? It should be nice to retrieve this official page we have created.

Thanks by advance for your help

On my Windows 10 PC, I use Thunderbird (TB) for four emails (3 are Gmail). For some reason one (and only one) of my Gmail accounts starting wanting password verification in TB. But when I click the 'next' button, it doesn't take me to the password page to confirm my password, it just erases my Gmail account name in the username field.

I'm not certain why it suddenly started needing password verification (and my other two Gmail accounts still don't). I've logged into the Gmail account on Google, and my password still works (haven't changed it). I updated TB to the latest version. I deleted the password in TB (hoping it would then let me reenter it). I finally deleted the Gmail account entirely from TB. When I try to add it back, it now only allows the inbox (not sent or templates folders). And it still keeps asking me to verify the Gmail password (but won't let me). I can see new emails received, but I can't send any.

Any suggestions?

Yes, I have set the options to open, see attached. If I go to a website and click on a PDF it will open in Adobe Reader. When I go to Outlook.live.com for my email and click on the PDF it opens them in a Firefox preview. When I print them from Firefox it takes an average of 5 minutes per page. If I download and open in Adobe it takes seconds to print the entire file.

I sought without answer to see how to PREVENT restoring previous sessions, freezing my computer because FF did not clear previous sessions, internet access freezing when social media sites weren't cleared, as they used to be. And then, reading the solution on, how to access restoresession options, I come upon about:config and search browser.session I see the problem. Instead of setting options to clear previous history, FF now has uncountable options which - hide browsers I've deletes, like Bing - maintain restoring sessions up to 5, 10, 32 times, even though I've set the option to never - keep data I wanted deleted, in Top sites, in pocket, in other options - set Google as the default translator even though I've chosen not to use it I am seriously disappointed in Firefox and Mozilla. I have used it since I found it one- two ? decades ago because it WASN'T wired into the top-heavy, data-excessive, intrusive-spying behemoths of Google and Microsoft. Did Google buy you out, or something? I do notice that the wonderful creative-commons data options have been swallowed up by those icons of not-for-profit and community sharing, google-android, every for-profit phone companies (ATT, Verizon,etc.) How sad and ironic. I found my solution was, select 0 for many, many browser.?? options and deleting the history I found in various switches. Posting this to share my disillusion.

Hello everyone, I'm working on customizing the Firefox experience for users within my organization.

I have to really limit their access. One of those requests were to prevent users from minimizing their active Firefox window.

I've found articles like the one below that show how to hide all the buttons: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/906698

However it does not suit the purpose. since it removes all of them and only on full screen.

Is there a way I can just hide the minimize button so that the user can just hide the minimize button?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I was wondering if their was a way to switch the find bar bar back to the old way of searching. The way it is now is annoying. When I use find it's usually the same search across multiple tabs. Now I have to open the find in each tab and if I change the find in one tab it doesn't change across the other find bars so I now have to change each individually. Thanks.

What is causing the browser to revert back to previous version? The previous version was 85.02. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled v86.0. Eventually, the browser reverts back to the previous version. When I tried to open the browser, the following message appears:

You've launched an older version of Firefox Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for the installation of Firefox.

I cannot use OpenPGP encryption on one of my email addresses, because its private key does not appear in the End-to-End encryption of the account setting. Exactly, I can have added the private key through the wizard of the account setting, but there is no private key in the End-to-End encryption of the account setting instead of the private key appearing in the OpenPGP key manager.

The other email accounts are OK, i.e. I can use OpenPGP encryption on the accounts. The differences from the troubled email account are followings: - The troubled email account uses Ed255 not ECDSA algorithm. - Name of the troubled email account includes UTF-8 Japanese characters. - The troubled email account also registers S/MIME private.

Please give me advice on this problem. Thanks.
