Hi,

Is it possible for Firefox to implement an easy and accessible profile manager just like Chrome rather than going through about:profiles?

I am using containers but need to separate work and personal workspace. Some of domains are overlapped like Google and Microsoft services. so separating by domains cannot work.

Firstly, I'm aware that large attachments may not copy to sent folder. For me, sometimes standard emails do not copy to sent. This issue has been around for ages now. You need to post a definitive solution to this FAQ - trawling through endless opinions to change this or change that is not useful. Is it a gmail issue? Is it NOT a gmail issue? If not, what is the fix? I'm running on Mac OS Catalina, 10.15.7 Thanks. Rory.

Good People, Followed screen pop-up to make Firefox default browser. Now all *.pdf files have Firefox icons and open as .html pages, I think! Seen some solutions, but for older versions of windows and followed procedure: go to Adobe, Edit, Preferences, General, 'Select Default PDF Handler', as dialog Does not have Adobe Reader XI, step two was Change to Adobe Reader DC, clicked continue, but NO Windows Configuration Screen appears. Using Version 94.0.2 (64bit) with Windows 10. Also, help answer said not necessarily a Firefox problem, also within Adobe Reader. Not comfortable with changes to be made in the registry. James

In the past, the entire event title appeared in the event box when viewing a Week. Now, the frame shows only one line of text and truncates the rest by replacing it with dots. This means I can't get an overview of my week. I've tried looking through all the options and searching online with no luck. How do I get it to wrap text like it did before?

Firefox has arranged my extensions alphabetically. I would prefer to group them functionally, or at least be able to separate those which have similar colors -- for example, Grammarly and Evernote are both green and I sometimes click on one when I want the other. I would also like to have the one I use most at the far right of the toolbar.

Just installed Thunderbird v91.2 and it seems to have nuked my display colors. Before I had the colors set up for the Write display window, the message display, and everything else. Now, everything's white. Preferences has no Display tab with which to set colors, a couplke of settings I found that control some color options do nothing, I've tried the Advanced Preferences and found one browser display set to #000000 and so set it to something else but that does not display and after a reboot that setting is still back to #000000 again. It seems as Thudnerbird has made it increasingly impossible to get its display to look like what i want. In color. The colors that I want. Themes are useless because there's only LIght and Dark now. Is there some sacrifice I have to make to the elder gods or something? I even tried backing up a couple of revisions but the colors are still gone (and I just had them 2 days ago), which tells me that maybe some preferences file got overwritten?

I'm using Firefox on a 2021 Macbook Pro (the one with the notch) and I've noticed that when I'm in full screen mode and I navigate to the Mac menu bar, the Firefox tab menu drops down. This wasn't a problem on my old Mac, since it allowed for the Mac menu to drop down, but since the menu has been moved to the top of the screen on either side of the notch on the new Macbook Pro, it's unncessary and bothersome. Is there a setting I can change to prevent this from happening?

Hi Guys! I wanted to install twemojis in my Arch Linux distro (manjaro) but after installing bitsream vera sans font the userChrome.css fonts that I write in that file are not working anymore like the fonts are not installed, but I'm using that custom font in my Arch Linux (Product Sans) even any other font that I put in that file is not working, but If I use "font-weight: bold;" It's working so that means that the file is working but the fonts are not.

I'd appreciate any help. Thank you!!

This is a minor issue, but it's really annoying me. I like having certain pages pinned on the page that opens when I open a new tab; it's easier than always having to search through my many bookmarks for pages I use every day. But I find it really annoying and unhelpful – and also embarrassing, if another person is there – that Firefox only allows me to do this if I also allow it to display sites I've visited. The two should be completely separate in my opinion, like on Chrome. I can delete individual sites, but they're just replaced with other, even less relevant ones. So now I have a blank, useless new tab page, instead of a helpful one that shows me the sites I need to get to, because I don't want to risk a coworker, friend, or family member randomly seeing whatever sites I may have visited once or twice months ago. (This doesn't have to be extreme (porn, etc) to be embarrassing; I don't necessarily want people to see that I've been shopping for jewelry or hair dye or whatever.) It's just unprofessional and unnecessary. Thanks for fielding my complaint.

I added a keyboard shortcut to Share/Mail and it fails. The menu flashes when the key combination is pressed, but a new mail message is not created. If I use the trackpad to select this menu item, a new mail message is created. I created another shortcut for the Eyedropper and this works.

Hi read your article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-fix-preferences-wont-save

I have changed the action for content type "mail to" to my default email app outlook. Despite this when I click on an embedded web page mail to link, the action reverts to the new office "mail" app which I do not want. When I get to the section in your article "User.js file overriding Firefox settings" as the next step in trying to fix the issue, and follow the instruction "Click the Firefox menu - and select Exit." then I am thrown out of the dialogue, it is not logical. Please advise as I don't even know if the user.js is causing the persistence?

Thanks Andrew

In Firefox Android a few search engines are included by default. And we can also add other search engines. Brave Search is new best search engine but if I add it via other option it doesn't detect that Brave is default search engine means every time I search something, Brave search says me to make it default even if it already is so!

So if Firefox keeps it built in and we can add just by clicking on Brave, it would be better.

How do I remove Colorways completely? I don't use it and it's a waste of space. I used to have more control of features in Firefox. Now you're putting themes I can't delete? Firefox is really starting to suck! No wonder everyone is leaving for Chrome. I'm about to be one of those leaving Firefox.
