Hi! I am a developer and I need to test the app in Firefox. But first I need to install the Ignore X-Frame-Options Header plugin. Unfortunately, I can't do this, and I can't install any addons at all. It says: An unexpected error occurred during installation. The version of the browser is updated. And also I have tried to do these steps, which didn't help:

  • about:config
  • set xpinstall.signatures.required to false

Could you please help me?

The inbox font in the Thunderbird email client on my Mac is super tiny, and it's very hard to read. I can't figure out how to make it larger. Is there a way to do this? I really like Thunderbird so far, but if I can't read it, I can't use it.

Thanks! Mark

This morning I opened Firefox only to find that the GUI had changed completely. I have managed to enable the theme and have customised the toolbar, but my extensions are no longer visibile to the right of the search box, and my dictionaries and language packs are disabled without (so it seems) the possibility of enabling them. My bookmarks seem to be intact, but Firefox is now extremely slow (I've been waiting ages for a new tab to open). What is going on, and how can I restore my extensions (including password manager) and language tools?

Again....I´m starting to get really frustrated over latest firefox as it is becoming more unfriendly and too much for the tech savy. Having got the bookmarks over to the LHS of the screen, (what a struggle) now one simply cannot organize the sites to type and not by name. There is not a single cue click on this. It would be nice to have a restore feature to how the setup was BEFORE the browser crashed.

Resetting default actions for attachments in TB 78.7.0 on macOS 10.14.6

Hello TB gurus:

I'm Bob Shimizu, and I have two problems.

1) When I tried to "open with" on a file attachment, I mistakenly chose the wrong application. In this case I tried to open a .pdf in Excel. Obviously that won't work, so I tried to reset it. Following a search, I found this page: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Actions_for_attachment_file_types. It instructed me to open my profile and delete mimeTypes.rdf.

I think that the doc is behind the release, because when I search in my Profile, I can find no such file. So, I'm stuck and now I have to save the file and open it with the right app rather than opening it IN TB. Bummer.

2) In 78.7.0 I can no longer change the color of text in an email, which I find very useful. Yes, you can choose colors in a number of ways, via a circular "spectrum" or a selection of colored pencils, but the color you select actually won't work. Bummer again.

Help, please? Sincerely, Bob

When hit shift and click somewhere in the webpage or type something, the "Page Inpector" keep poping out (see attached screenshot), this is so annoying that I basically cannot type any capital letters. I have tried the option "Refresh Firefox", the browser seems to be set to default mode, but the issue still exsist. Tried for a new keyboard, the same. I searched the forum, but unfortunately cannot find a proper solution. Hope anyone can help me with this, otherwise I have to consider to change my default browser (which I really don't want to because of such a simple but annoying problem).

Thanks a lot for anyone could provide any suggestions !

I've updated to the latest MacOS Monterey beta and all gesture plugins are broken when used with the trackpad. This is not unique to Firefox, it also happens in Chrome.

If you try to make a two fingers gesture (right click) on the trackpad, it will start scrolling the page instead of registering as a right click and hold for the gesture to start, making gestures impossible to perform.

Does anyone know about a work around for this?

I need to reorder Firefox windows on the taskbar badly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also it would be useful to have custom titles. Both things should persists after PC restart. I tried couple programs, but they don't work. Devs said: position of Firefox window on the taskbar is store in Firefox and their program has no way of remembering that! Also windows get randomly shuffled each time, it is impossible to use like this. It takes me forever to find right window. It is annoying the hell out of me. How Firefox dev team doesn't fix something that basic??? This is so stupid...

Please tell me there is some solution...

I'm using Firefox 90 on Linux (Fedora 33) and MATE Desktop. Before I upgraded to Firefox 90, I set widget.non-native-theme.enabled to false to revert the scrollbar appearance to the system theme, as per this question: Scrollbar appearance changed after Firefox upgrade. It worked on Firefox 89, but as soon as I upgraded to Firefox 90, the scrollbars went back to the non-native appearance.

After the upgrade, the widget.non-native-theme.enabled is still set to false, but apparently ignored. However, I noticed that the other widget.non-native-theme.gtk.scrollbar.* settings that allow scrollbar appearance customization inside Firefox are ignored as well. If I set widget.non-native-theme.enabled back to true, then the other scrollbar settings work as expected. This tells me that widget.non-native-theme.enabled does work, but the system scrollbar theme is not picked up as expected. This looks like a bug to me.

Dear all,

I find that the folders other than "Inbox" are not automatically synchronized therefore the new messages are not notified. In the "Folder Properties", I already checked "When getting new messages for this account, always check this folder", but the new messages are only checked manually.

I guess that this is related to the PUSH notification of my IMAP account. I wonder whether there are ways to make this automatic. I use "K-9 Mail" on my Android device which checks these folders automatically if properly configured. I don't think that this is a deficient of PUSH notification.

Best, Frank

I am on MacOS Mojave (10.14.6). I have a few different installations of Firefox for different purposes and I'd like them each to display the custom name I've given them by renaming their filename (e.g. changing Firefox.app to something like YouTubeViewer.app). This causes the installation of Firefox to show in my app switcher and elsewhere in the OS as "YouTubeViewer", however when I run YouTubeViewer.app, Firefox still displays "Firefox" in the upper left-hand corner as the application name.

I tried editing the .plist file for each installation to change the value for key CFBundleName from "Firefox" to "YouTubeViewer", but that causes that installation of Firefox to no longer run. I believe this is due to the code-signing and pre-run validation done by the OS.

So, is there any way to get the custom name to display or is just not possible?
