Hi

Firefox transltor extension doesnt work on my android phone sadli.


Another way to translate in other browsers is holding your finger on the word, the translate it with already installed translators app on your phone but FireFox doesn't support this option too.

Greetings forum -

I have Firefox on automatic update. Last night Firefox auto updated to version 78.0.1 and this update added pre-installed bookmarks suggestions that appear when I click the command line.

These pre-installed bookmarks suggestions are offensive trash like: facebook, twitter, reddit, etc.

I have searched the help section. I have scoured the customize pull down menus. I have looked through the bookmark editor ... and found no clear method of removing these pre-installed bookmarks suggestions.

There MUST be a way to do so. I CAN NOT see facebook, twitter, and reddit in my bookmarks every time I click on the command line.

Does anyone know of a method to remove these pre-installed bookmarks suggestions?

Thanks in advance for your time and knowledge.

A lot of firefox is customizable via userchrome or extensions, however one thing that does not seem to be is the default PDF.js viewer. I would like to continue using it; however, I would like to change the styling on it (specifically I want to change how page breaks are rendered, which I already have the CSS for). Extensions obviously will not work as it is an internal file, userChrome doesn't work (I tried it), and I can't seem to find where the viewer is actually located on my PC (Search Everything brings nothing relevant up for pdfjs, pdf.js, or viewer.html.) Is there any way that I can modify the inbuilt PDF viewer?


PS this is probably unimportant but I noticed that https://mozilla.github.io/pdf.js/web/viewer.html has slightly different CSS from the built in version .

I decided to use Firefox, but I noticed some things that are missing.

1) Being able to color the favorites folders (at least set white, black or gray)

2) Black or gray background when I open a favorites folder (currently it's white)

3) Layout of folders open folders of favorites that adapt to the length of the name of the favorites

4) Ability to enter a different pin or master password, in order to access the passwords on mozilla firefox (if I leave my pc on, with firefox open, another person can go to the firefox settings and see all my messages in clear password.)

5) Incorrect display of GMail e-mail (a sliding bar appears in the center)

6) Ability to choose whether to scroll or decrease the tabs.

First of all, congratulations to everyone for the work done so far on Mozilla Firefox.

Ps: if you want I can post photos for every single point mentioned above.

Are there any tricks to getting a Chrome URL page as the new tab?

The one and only website that I want as my new tab is a bit laggy and takes a while to load, probably because of CloudFlare.

And I'd like to have a huge page to see all of my bookmarks in, to make it easier to organize my bookmarks. Instead of using the bookmarks sidebar or the Library window.

So I thought why not combine the two things that I want? Make my new tab open up to the Chrome bookmarks page, and then if I want that laggy website it can be one of the top bookmarks listed. Or if I want to organize and see my other bookmarks instead, I can just ignore that top bookmark and focus on the other bookmarks.

Well my New Tab URL won't let me and it is a Firefox restriction so he couldn't add the feature even if he wanted to.

But surely there is a trick or workaround that might not involve extensions?

If so, please let me know.

I want chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml as my new tab page.

The extension was changing it to http://chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml which broke it.

Firefox v77 - Need command to "return to the previous tab"

I need to configure a keyboard command -- or else find an Add-on -- that will "return" -- from the current tab, to the previous tab -- that was displayed in the same Firefox window.

Years ago there was an Add-on that provided this function -- but it was never updated to work on later Firefox versions... I have looked recently, and found nothing similar -- but does anyone know if there is an Add-on to provide this function, that will work on Firefox v77 ?

If not, then how can we forward the following suggestion to Mozilla?

Similar to Alt-Tab calling the Windows "switch Window" action -- Ctrl-Alt-Tab would (ideally) switch Tabs in Firefox, to display the previously displayed Tab, in the (same) top window.

Thank you,

BillK

Hi all, I believe I remember that this function once was implemented in firefox and I used it regularly. But now I can't find it anymore:

The search results of an internet search (let's say google search results) show up in firefox one after the other. When I move my hand to the mouse and Strg + click I can open selected search results in new tabs. From the keyboard I can only use Tab to navigate from element to element - but not from search result to search result as I want.

Is there a possibility to move quickly from search result to search result? To skip all the not interesting elements? To "tab" through all these links, the maps, the ads takes ages...

Would be great if someone knew the old function in firefox at least.

My Foxfire Browser's drop down menu has a mind of it's own.

I use current Foxfire Browser (77.0.1) with Windows 10 and have been trying to clear useless items from the drop down menu for months. I have tried all the standard, 'highlight and delete' options on YOUTUBE and right here.

I must be asking the wrong questions, because the answers I am finding do not clear the items from Foxfire's drop down menu. None of the prescribed techniques cleared the sites from Foxfire's drop down menu.. Hard to understand what I am missing but my browser' is clearly NOT responding the way explained in answers I have found.

Example: There is a Search with Amazon.com site listed. I have NEVER used and it will not be cleared. No Matter what. Top item on FoxFire's drop down menu.

In desperation, I just tried clearing "all browsing history" 'and the annoying drop down sites are still there. 'In fact, now there are additional annoying sites from Facebook (have not been in 10 years) and twitter (I have Never been on twiter).

What is wrong with this browser ?

Can anyone help ? Please.

I want to change the location of the temporary files corresponding to the web pages I visit. It seems to be called the cache.

Right now those files are saved in

   C:\Users\userid\AppData\Local\Temp\

but my C drive is a SSD and I don't want them to be there.

Note: In about:config, I created a string

   browser.cache.disk.parent_directory

and set its value to

   D:\Temp\Firefox_temp\

but to no avail: the temporary HTML pages are still created in C:\Users\userid\AppData\Local\Temp\.
