i'm currently writing my own firefox user.js configuration and now i'm at the topic "unloading inactive tabs" like microsoft edge does.

so what are the preferences for this kind of topic?

i want inactive tabs which have not been used for more than 5 minutes to be unloaded.

chatgpt gave me this "browser.tabs.unloadAfterDelay" preference but this one doesn't even exist in the about:config preferenes, would it still work if it doesn't even exist?

my hardware is very outdated already and i wanna try if my firefox runs better without any hardware acceleration like running fully on software.

i don't think that just simply disabling the hardware acceleration in the settings disables the entire hardware acceleration because there are way more about:config preferences which are related to hardware acceleration.

How to block the full screen function permanently at the same time that all menus are hidden, invisible, when you press the full screen button so that the video one gives a larger image without giving full screen. I have previously found a firefox program that could do that, but unfortunately I got it deleted.

Want to use the solution on a Win 10 PC, desktop PC and a screen of 1.5 m, i.e. 2 screens in one.

I'm currently developing a website that use user printer. And I'm looking for a hook that I can use to know user click the confirm or cancel in print dialog(or print preview window). the onafterprint method will trigger before user click confirm so I guess it's not an option.

Also, someone please tell me the topic describes my questions, I really don't know which topic is best for my question.

I have several emails set up on my desktop Thunderbird app (Yahoo, Gmail, Fastmail). For some reason all emails that I receive in Yahoo are also showing up in the Fastmail account. I do not have this set up at Yahoo (I have the standard account that does not allow automatic forwarding) so I believe it is happening in Thunderbird. How do I turn this off? Thanks.

When I want to go to the NY Times, and i type "nyt" the address bar automatically populated with the rest of the URL "nytimes.com". When I do the same thing with gmail and "gmail" it runs a search on a search engine instead of completing the rest of the URL.

Why would it do this for one website and not another? How do I fix this, I use gmail all the time so its a bit of a time waster.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Every time I right click and select "Open Link in New Tab" Firefox is not opening this new tab next to the current tab. It instead moves this new tap to the end of all the tabs (of the current website). This is an annoying behavior, I have to go all the way to the end of the tabs to look at the name page that I just opened. How do I fix this behavior?

So, I apprehend how this works presently (or until recently) with Firefox for Android solid cut back to approximately a dozen extensions (provide or take) and first of all broader extension get right of entry to being to be had in forks like Iceraven and, ultimately, if you understand the name of the game code and have a Mozilla account, Firefox Nightly and Firefox Beta.

But, i have examine that this is converting to in which in preference to the prevailing "integrated" extension Firefox for Android extension library that become heavily limited on Firefox solid, it'll be replaced with the aid of an AMO library open to submissions in the same way pre-version sixty nine Firefox for Android, and present day Firefox for home windows are, with Android variations of extension on the identical AMO pages as their desktop opposite numbers, for the ones computer developers who additionally need an Android model.

I have a few questions, which maybe other human beings have too, inclusive of:

- Which model is this anticipated to fully land in nightly and beta? Approximate date?

- Which version is this expect to fully land in strong? Approximate date?

- Will all present day extensions with new extension versions stick round in every user's installations with a continuing upgrade, or will human beings should reinstall extensions manually after changeover?

- If the extensions deliver over automatically, what happens to people upgrading from, say, simply for instance, modern-day Android uBlock beginning to new extension fashion uBlock foundation past the obvious? Will the settings and customizations to such things as filters and filter listing be ported over much like a ordinary software program improve, or does the exchange in codecs make that a non-starter and revert to a popular new installation uBO? I ask because if extension settings do not bring over, humans should recognise to be able to backup what they could (and, if a backup mechanism isn't always supplied by means of an extension, the give up user could optionally take screenshots or notes before the current model goes away to get it returned doing things the manner the cease person would really like after) and reimport it to the new edition, if they care about such matters enough to do it.

- What occurs to the modern Firefox for Android extensions, both those covered on solid and the numerous more that are not, but that humans access thru forks and non-solid versions of Firefox? Is this strictly a one system at a time component, in which the handiest system disappears whilst solid is going live with support for the new style extensions, or might both upload-on systems exist side via aspect for some time thereafter?
