I just downloaded firefox nightly for the sole purpose of being able to use the about:config editor. My question is, how can I disable the blue dots in both the screenshots attached? I find it annoying to be bothered when any application notify me that an update has been installed. Where in about:config should I search to disable this behavior?

I experimented using the folder retention policy for emails. I left 'Always keep starred messages' checked so that I could set either 'Delete all but the most recent N messages' or 'Delete messages more than N days old', but I discover that when a folder fills up with starred messages, new messages get immediately deleted. I need the retention policy to keep starred messages but ignore starred messages when applying the either the 'Delete all but the most recent N' or 'Delete message more than N days old'. I use starred messages sot that I can keep them long-term / indefinitely. I need the retention policy - for unstarred messages - that I need. So that if I select 'Delete all but the most recent 30 messages' and the folder has 100 starred messages, it will keep the 100 starred messages but only keep the most recent 30 unstarred messages. In addition to the 100 starred messages. Likewise if I select 'Delete messages more than 100 days old' and the folder has 200 starred messages, then the starred messages will be kept no matter how old they are (i.e. indefinitely) but the oldest un-starred message in the folder will be at most 100 days old, and the older starred messages will be kept.

I have my language settings to English, and English ONLY.

When I open multiple sites, or even try to log in and view my passwords ~ it constantly displays in Russian or some other language.

There is no helpful solution posted, and I have no idea to fix this. Again ~ only English is set in my personal settings.

Any advice?

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?

Hello, when I click on link with middle mouse button it will open that link on next tab but doesn't "jump" there, which is fine. But when I do the same with pdf links, it will automaticly "jumps" on the pfd file. And I don't want to. I want to open it like normal link (on next tab in background), because I have a lot of pdf files to open, and this makes it difficult to do it qucikly. Before some weeks this wasn't a probem, it started now.

Bes Regard, Josef

I recently replaced my old laptop by a new one after battery life issue (and for free thks total refund warrantly). But the new laptop unfortunately come with windows 11.

and like with windows 10, FF 97+ force the windows OS color theme style for checkboxes over the websites stylised ones (like a dark themed website with its own original soft small dark gray checkboxes being replaced by big light blue windows ones making the design ugly) I tried the same trick as my former laptop by switching widget.non-native-theme.enabled to "false", but it caused a tab crash on all page using checkboxes. Restarting firefox solved the crash issue, but even if slightly different than native-theme.enabled on "true"(smaller and dark blue) the checkboxes are always a single forced windows like style on all sites

The trick worked easily on windows 10, how to force firefox to correctly use the websites own style for checkboxes and forms with windows 11? I don't want windows style take over the design of site i visiting.

Hey,

i try to use firefox multiaccount container but it does not work. Better said if i add the add-on it does not show up in system bar (up in the right corner), but you can see it in the add-ons and themes setting menu. So there is only half of layout given but no function of it at all compairing to other persons using it, e.g. "how to use firefox multiaccount container tutorial videos" etc. Trying to handel the settings of it with the add-ons and themes menu does not help.

I use the firefox browser protable eddion for windows at my laptop and it seems to be that all settings are recent. As well it does not seem to be that i use there any privat tab where it does not work i guess?!

May someone can help me?

I use Last Pass for passwords & it's worked in the past on Firefox. After updating Firefox, the Last Pass extension in by toolbar is black - in the past I would click that, open the Last Pass page to sign in, then the icon turns red and functions. Now when I click the icon a frozen page comes up that never loads. I can sign in to the Last Pass webpage, but that doesn't turn on the extension.

Any advice appreciated - thanks!

I've downloaded a couple of add-ons this week that did not do what they claim to do, so I wanted to leave reviews so other users won't waste their time. Except when i got to do so, i am surprised to see that therte is no clear way to write a review for an add-on. I am logged into the add-ons page, i can view the previous reviews for the add-on, but nowhere does it inticate how I can leave a review. Google led me to the Mozilla add-ons wiki which states "You can complete most of the review using the reviewer tools at addons.mozilla.org" except there is no indication to where one can locate these "reviewer tools." Seems a bit funny to me that Mozilla would choose to hide the functionality and make it so difficult to use.

Any help is appreciated.
