Greetings... I would like to increase the font size in right click menu box in FF 89.0 (64-bit) (see attached png)

I found a similar 2018 query here at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1241117#answer-1174375

and based on that exchange I added the following to userChrome.css file

/* FONT SIZE IN RIGHT CLICK MENU BOXES 5/1/22 */

  1. mainPopupSet menuitem,
  2. mainPopupSet menu { font-size: 16pt !important; }

/* */

I closed and reopened FF. This change has no effect on the menu font no matter what font-size value I enter. Have I done something wrong?

Hi,

For a long time, Firefox has been crashing when I try to open the ADS-B website for tracking aircraft.

This problem is intermittent.

ADS-B is a huge aviation safety improvement.

Because tracking of military aircraft is often prevented, I attributed the crashing to a crash signal from military aircraft departing the nearby airport.

There are privacy concerns that have led to a new system for ADS-B.

There is also an unrelated FAA-offered blocking feature for radar tracking which allows aircraft owners to block radar data from being viewed by the general public.

Today I learned that it is impossible to paste anything to the Mozzila Crash Reporter block.

I haven't found a way to see any relevant crash report info in the Activity Monitor feature.

I haven't updated Firefox to the newest yet because the last time I upgraded I found that the appearance of the tab bar had been changed, and it took too long for me to return to the desired previous appearance.

It is often not easy to go back to a previous Firefox edition.

I understand the need to solve problems via upgrades, especially security problems, but now our late 2013 Macbook Pro Retina is stopped at OS 13.6, and perhaps also stopped at Firefox 99.0.1?

Perhaps security fixes will soon be impossible.

Thanks for your consideration.

hi,

can someone suggest how i can fix this. I use private browsing window for most things and when PC opens links i need them to be in private mode. But they all are opened in non-private browsing and load browser full of trash cookies even before they receive permission to do so (EU regulation). Causing me to delete these trash cookies every time.

So How can i set to all links from outside Firefox are opened in Firefox private browsing window?, or How can i set that before page loads in Firefox there is pop-up that ask if i need this opened before it is loaded?

Hello,

I've just recently been experiencing this problem.

I would play a Youtube video, but after a few minutes, it would just stop, no error message. It just stops.

I then reload the page, but then it plays with no audio. I would have to close Firefox and restart the video, just to have it stop again after a few minutes.

I have the latest version of Firefox installed. I've tried refreshing the Firefox setup, uninstalling and reinstalling, reinstalling the video drivers, but nothing seems to be solving the problem.

Video plays just fine with Chrome or Edge.

Windows 10 Pro (Made sure it was up to date as well). 250mbps connection

Lately (as of which version, I'm not sure), I've been noticing that if I enter a URL in the address bar of a tab that already has a page open, instead of going to the new URL I entered, Firefox will refresh the current page instead. This happens A LOT and is pretty annoying. Wondering if this happens to anyone else.

For a couple months now I have not been able to paste anything on Facebook via Firefox. I can use Explorer, Chrome and can paste anywhere else just fine. When I paste on Facebook messenger, the chat window closes and I have to refresh Facebook to even be able to see my messages again. Otherwise, I click on it and nothing happens. When I try to paste a post on my wall, it I get a "Something isn't working. This may be because of a technical error we're working to fix." (I just copied and pasted that here no problem) Tried clearing history/cookies/cache. Help?

restore multiple tabs from a previous, but not last, session

How to restore many tabs from the session before the last session?

Windows 10, Firefox 89.0

If there is more than one window open: Window A has many tabs; Window B has one tab; then when I close Firefox, the other window remains open. If window A is closed first, then closing window B means that firefox will restore the tabs of window B because it was the previous session.

How can I recover the many tabs from Window A?

Can I retrieve a list from history and reopen many at once?

Can I reload the appropriate "previous.jsonlz4" which is the next previous file?

Is there a reliable add-on that can remember open tabs?

Is there a way to easily modify the right click menu when clicking a tab because 'Reload Tab' use to be on the top of the list when you would right click on a tab, now the top option is 'New Tab' and theirs the '+' on the right of the tab on the right so it also seems a little redundant to have it top of the right click list. Also Reload Tab seems more useful than the New Tab. So is there a way to easily modify that menu to get Reload Tab back to the top?

I tried the Theme Font & Size Changer add-on but it says "because of the new extension system on firefox, most of the functionality is not available anymore."

I have no idea what that means, but I do know these tabs were not this small awhile ago. And my other older computer's tabs are readable.

I tried the about:config thing and changed it to 2 (layout.css.devPixelsPerPx) but that didn't have any effect.

Is there any help for ppl who can't see so great?

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Netflix quit working today. It said my browser version was no longer supported. I updated from v.86 to v.89. It looks like crap. New tab + icon is gone. "tab bar" is not transparent or dark mode. And guess what: Netflix still doesn't work. That's probably their problem but now I have no Netflix, weird crap on the whatever bar, add-on icons are gone, and this big gaudy tab bar.

How do I rollback to a previous version? I'd rather not have excuses or sales pitches as to why 89 is better from the newer-is-better crowd. For me 89 is NOT better.

So, how do I rollback to a previous version?
