FIREFOX 75 UPDATE: How to change internet address bar dropdown to display most visited sites?

How to change the browser.urlbar.maxRichResults in about:config to display more recently viewed websites in the drop-down list in the address bar after Firefox 75 update?… (read more)

How to change the browser.urlbar.maxRichResults in about:config to display more recently viewed websites in the drop-down list in the address bar after Firefox 75 update? I only see 6 results when I had it set to about 20 before.

I have gone to browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus and changed that setting to False thinking that would help but all that has done is eliminated the entire drop-down list altogether when the address bar is clicked.

I checked my browsing privacy options in the settings menu within Firefox and it appears everything remains exactly as before, prior to update. Maybe there is some special combo of settings and about:config options that can bring the drop-down menu back that I enjoyed so much prior to update version 75.

Any recommendations?

Wondering if a toggle option or some implementation of this will ever be added into the Android browser, as I've been waiting a long while now for this feature and especially as the user-agent fix no longer works.. Requesting desktop website fails as always to load the correct website version. Are there any other workarounds if possible? My device is new and I'd like to load desktop versions of websites on it when away from my home computer device as the mobile websites are clunky and don't provide as concrete a base of information. If it's at all feasible. Many thanks.

I've been on a search for results and used three or four different css additions that don't work (focus and outline derivatives).

There is nothing in accessibility settings (Mac 10.11.6) on my computer.

Hello, I was wondering is it possible to get Reader Mode on PC to fill the whole screen space instead of the stripe in the middle? Its quite useful for getting only the relevant text out of a web page and yet it feels the amount of screen space that's actually useful is becoming less and less lately. (I'm hoping for a solution that doesn't include any scripts, but if they're necessary I'd welcome any solution really)

How to view HTML emails in Outlook 2016 in Firefox

Good day,

I use Outlook 2016 installed on my Windows 10 desktop to manage my email accounts. As the default security settings of Outlook software prevents a number of scripts from running, it is common to be unable to view an HTML email as the sender intended, even if one “downloads pictures”, and so Outlook displays an advisory on these emails; “If there are problems with how this message is displayed, click here to view it in a web browser”. If I click on this, the email will open in Internet Explorer (IE) and I will be able to view the email as intended.

I want to open these emails automatically in Firefox (FF) but, despite searching the web for a solution, I cannot see how to do this. My default web browser is set as FF and everything web related other than Outlook emails successfully opens in FF. I see that the Outlook emails are saved thus: C:\Users\MyUserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\Content.Outlook\UniqueID\email.mht. I have searched how to open mht files in FF and have accordingly downloaded the Web Archives Extension. Unfortunately, even with Web Archives installed, when I try to open the cached mht file in FF, the file will not open. I also tried to change the default application by file type of .mht and .mhtml files from IE to FF but Windows will not offer FF as an alternative program for these files types.

Please could someone advise what I should do so that if I need to view an email in Outlook in a browser, the email will open, and successfully render, in FF?

Thank you.

I am a long time user of FF but since the last updates the home page setting in options does not save or work. Keeps giving me a blank page. If I use the home icon on the tool bar, it is correct but on start up, only a blank even though it set for something else. Seems odd that it won't work correctly on startup. I am using win7 64 bit PC.

Love me FF, thanks for such a great browser.

As the Subject describes, I just wanna move or remove the Forward/Back/Refresh/Bookmark controls either down or off the contextual menu. I am constantly right-clicking for dev purposes and it automatically clicks the back button almost every time and thus goes back to the previous page. THIS IS A HEADACHE AND A TIME SUCK.

Screenshot attached. Any help is appreciated.

I find myself facing a real dillema, I prefer to use Firefox for most things however, due to the fact that Firefox does not support H.265 and has instead opted to only support AVI video I cannot use it to manage the massive fleet of Security Cameras I manage. I am stuck using IE or Edge both of which are garbage. Along with that Chrome also has decided to only support AVI so that is worthless as well. In our modern era of technology I find it morally repugnant that a company like Firefox would turn their back on their loyal users. Could someone please explain to why Firefox cannot even implement an add-on that would allow use of the built in hardware decoder if supported on your computer like IE/Edge are capable of doing? I just don't understand why Firefox insists on copying Chrome rather than being their own independent company, especially when Chrome has worked their way into almost a monopoly status, and even if Chrome is not a monopoly every other browser now seems to just be a spin off of Chrome. I would imagine that Firefox would want to support as much as possible and not dictate to the world like Google has decided to do. Really starting to lose faith in Firefox's ability to be their own company.

I have a dual screen windows 10 system. I use both Firefox and Chrome. Chrome is set as my default browser because I use many Google apps. However, when I search the internet and open non-google programs I use Firefox. I would like to have Firefox always open on a designated screen. Is there a way I can set Firefox to always default to a designated screen.

I look forward to your answer.

This issue is common to all browsers, but with how customizable Firefox is, I'm hoping it might help me circumvent the issue somehow.

My screen resolution is 1920 x 1080, but I use Windows settings to scale elements to 125% because my eyes are bad and I want to see the Windows and other software's interfaces better. As a result, the inside of Firefox, websites themselves, are also scaled. My resolution is reported as 1536 x 864 pixels. In most scenarios, this isn't really a problem, since in theory zooming out to 80% restores a website's appearance to normal.

But while developing, it can be weird. For instance, when using mobile simulation mode. And the reflex of pressing Ctrl+0 to restore default appearance is deeply ingraned. Also when someone tells me there's a problem with the website at X zoom, I have to calculate what that zoom level is equal to for me.

So I'm wondering if there's something I can do, other than fiddle with zoom all the time, to see what my website actually looks like while keeping my interface enlarged.

Until recently, when I clicked on a pdf link, Firefox would load the PDF file as a preview, treating it (on the user end) much like any other webpage but with a download button available. If I then clicked on the download button, it would be saved in my downloads folder, and clicking the saved file in Firefox's download links would open it in my default PDF viewer (ie Acrobat). This allowed me to easily look at PDF files without cluttering up Firefox's downloads list, as well as quickly open a downloaded PDF in Acrobat.

Following a recent update to Firefox, these options seem to have been changed and I can't find a way to revert to the previous behaviour. It seems to be treating the in-browser function as a full PDF viewer, rather than a preview. I can set Firefox to open PDFs in Acrobat, but then it downloads every link I click on which happens to be a PDF and opens them all in Acrobat. Or I can tell it to open them in the browser, but then if I want to open a PDF in Acrobat I have to download it, then hunt for it in my downloads folder and open it there rather than directly in Firefox. It also clutters up my downloads list, making it harder to find slightly older downloads without going through file explorer.

Alternatively, I can tell Firefox to ask me what to do every time. This is a bit better (a new option "open with firefox" has been added), but still involves making a couple of extra clicks each time I open a PDF - and it still insists on downloading every PDF based link I click.

What makes this particularly strange is that the in-browser PDF viewer still has a "download" button, which has the traditional two "open with___"/"save file" options, even though as far as I can tell it will only display stuff it's already downloaded.

Is it possible to return to Firefox's previous behaviour, or is it gone for good?

Hi All,

Not sure when this changed but noticed that a recent update changed how the JSON Response Payload is shown.

The old way can be seen in this Firefox Documentation https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Network_Monitor/request_details#Response

See attached Image "old.png"

Now see the attached "new.png". As you can see, the Object is summarized and shown on the same line as the Object's parent. This looks very messy when viewing large and/or complicated JSON.

Can someone please help me out to get the old view back?

Sorry if this is already answered. I already did try searching the Net and Firefox forums.

Thanks, Dil
