I want to change text encoding so it defaults to Unicode. If I use the [alt] key then the View tab I can change it from Western but it reverts back after closing the page. Sometimes that does not work because the Text Encoding option in the View tab is greyed out. The About Firefox window says I am up to date with 83.0 (64bit).

Firefox "Save as" file list: Why are folders no longer at top?

I recently changed from Ubuntu Gnome to KDE Plasma. Now, when I'm running Firefox (v83) and click "Save as" to save a file from a web page, Firefox gives me a file list with directories mixed in alphabetically, rather than at the top. This is new behavior to me; I don't know if it's new with v83 (I was previously running v82), or if it's a KDE implementation issue.

Either way, I HATE having to scroll down through page after page of files and folders to find my destination folder. Since the dialog box also incorporates full-row select, I can't even click in the file list and type the first letter of my destination folder.

Please tell me there is a way to change this behavior and have Firefox's "Save as" dialog sort the files with directories at the top!

Thanks.

Is there any way to revert from the pinch zoom back to the full screen zoom? I know that you can do the css full screen zoom via ctrl + pinch, but it seems much more laggy and slow than in older versions of Firefox. Is there some about:config option I can use to revert it? Or is it just baked in now.

The option to disable video and audio playing by default has no effect. Repro: set it to blocked and go to independent.com news site and watch it auto play video with audio. This is with Firefox for Android, though this entry form thinks I'm reporting for Firefox Preview, presumably because I have that also installed.

hi, As this thread indicates it is necessary to set browser.cache.disk.parent_directory in about:config. Unfortunately it has no effect and cache is store in profile in AppData/Local/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/{profile} directory on windows. I used that feature in the past and it worked. Is this feature removed or is there a bug?

I would like to start thunderbird with a command line/embedded switch identifying an attachment so the "new message" window starts with the file already attached. TB/Moz help has been spectacularly lacking in information on this topic. Has anyone done this, if so how?

Thanks,

Favicons in bookmark bar blurry after changing size

Hello!

I've change the size of the icons in the bookmark bar by using the userChrome.css which now has

  1. personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon { height:25px !important; width:25px !important; }

I've increased the height and the width for larger size of the icons since my bookmarks don't have text. The problem is that some of the become blurry after the enlargement. I've tried to force refresh the favicons by Ctrl+F5 and also deleting the cache, but it still does not work.

I know that favicons are usually provided in 16x16 px and 32x32, but I don't see how could I make firefox use the 32x32 version since it's using the 16x16 and enlarging it.

Thanks in advance!
