how do i;

get rid of the blue starred  edit bookmark  which is of no use to anyone ?

dark mode as its too bloody dark , without changing my 'theme' ? the crap surround on tabs ? i know which tab i'm on , or even change the colour at least . the line beneath tabs that goes along the whole screen ? 'page info' back to where it was before it was moved for no reason what so ever ? and any other updated crap i havent come across yet .

still no tabs below , so many tweaks here and there and yet f/f still doesnt give us what we want only what they want us to have .

When I try and use the search bar in google to search anything, what ever I type appears in the address bar instead. Sometimes it trys to create a URL for what I am typing and fails.

I want to stop Firefox from using the address bar as the means of searching. I have read solutions online about changing things in about:config, however, this is not working fully.

It will only work it only works if I open up a new window. If I try and open up a tab it returns to trying to create a URL from my search requirements.

I have also tried the preference screen and nothing in there resolves the problem either.

I want the home page to be blank when I open the browser, I want the home button to a URL. This was possible in older versions, and when you then updated the browser it maintained this difference - if it was already set. I did that once but I don't remember how far back on versions that is an option. Is it possible to do this in 89? If not, how far back should I go to install, make my home page and home button settings, then update to the current version. Then we're all good.

If you could supply a link to the correct FF file (windows 10, 64bit) that would be even more good.

thanks

After updating to v.89 with new UI, i no longer can close tabs by clicking mousewheel while coursor is on the tab I intend to close. No setting for middle-click was found in the menus.

How do I restore old behaviour on Firefox 89? For now, downgrading version seems like the only option.

Is it possible to disable autoplay videos on sites like CNN or NBC while still allowing video to be played on demand? I have disallowed autoplay on these sites because they have annoying, intrusive videos on about every single page, but I still *do* sometimes want to watch selected videos. With autoplay disabled, the "play" button in videos does not work, either. As it is, I have been disabling, then re-enabling, the autoplay block before/after watching a video, which sort of works as a work-around, but I'd really like a real solution--one that blocks autoplay but allows play on demand.

One of the beauties of firefox has long been that I could use the backspace bar instead of the back button to return to the previous page when browsing. Somewhere in the last updates this wonderful functionality was lost. Is there anyway I can restore this? I'm suffering from Parkinson's Disease which oftentimes makes controlling my mouse nearly impossible.

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.

Hallo, ich bin Kunde der Telekom und nutze das Telekom email Center zum Schreiben von Mails. Dafür muss ich immer umständlich die Adresse z.b. eines Shops ins email center übertragen um zu schreiben. Alternativ öffnet ein Klick auf die Adresse ein Auswahlfenster, mit welcher App ich eine Mail schreiben möchte. Da ich weder Mail noch sonst eine App nutzen möchte, suche ich nach einer anderen Möglichkeit. Kann man Firefox so einstellen, dass bei einem Klick auf die Mail-Adresse direkt dasTelekom email center gestartet wird? Vielen Dank!
