It seems to work in Google Chrome and such but ever since switching to FF, I've loved it. I do have an issue with Flash and I've tried almost every solution listed, reinstalling Firefox, reinstalling flash itself, submitting crash reports, etc etc, but nothing seems to work and if I need to view a flash I would have to view it on Google Chrome.

How to customize colors of displayed URI elements in address bar

Is there a way to customize the colors of each element of a displayed URI in the address bar?

A generic URI is of the form:

scheme:[user[:password@]host[:port]]/path[?query][#fragment]

For example with the following URI:

https://example.com/search?q=txt#result

I'd like to have the scheme (`https://`) be displayed as it is right now. The host (`example.com`) should be shown with a blue foreground font color. The path (`/search`) in yellow. The query (`&q=txt`) in red and the fragment (`#result`) in black.

Is such a customization possible - I coulnd't seem to find any info on that or a relevant add-on.

Since the latest Firefox Versions I had the big problem not beeing able to load my localhost domains without beeing redirected to https, after lot of searching I've found this solution to be working (for those of you who are struggling to get it working as well):

1. Type in about:config in your adress bar 2. Search for: network.stricttransportsecurity.preloadlist and set it to false 3. That's it, you should be able to get to the normal http version of your site

FF 59.0.2 NewTab does open the desired webpage - such as Google - but the focus is at the address bar. Many folks prefer this but for millions of us this wastes a lot of time, and requires interaction to get to the (example: Google) 'Search Box' rather than the address bar. Yes one could "just use the address bar" but is, for many, simply illogical and downright 'jarring'. A 25 Feb, 2018 suggestion on mSupport suggests setting "browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.aboutHome.autoFocus" to 'true' Problem is that no such item exists - only "browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.aboutHome.enabled" actually exists.

While I was away, my husband opened my browser and got the "We had a problem restoring your tabs" page. Instead of restoring all of the tabs and bookmarking them, he turned the "We had a problem" page into a pin. Shortly afterwards, the browser had some sort of conniption and crashed. When it was brought back up, the pin was gone, along with all of my tabs, which were many. I'm pretty sure I already know the answer to this, but is there any way of retrieving them?

In Firefox, when you have lots of tabs open, these buttons will apear on the left and right ">"

Is it possible to make it in firefox so when lots of tabs are open, they will shrink like it does in Google Chrome? So there are no ">" and "<" buttons?

Thanks.

Hi, I'm not a big fan of the black/dark icon for URLs in the new firefox. Can I change that to look like the actual firefox program icon? I've attached a screenshot of the two. The one on the left is the default URL icon, the one on the right is one I changed individually to the icon I like. I can do this one by one, but that's a lost cause. I'd just rather set it so ALL of my URL icons look like the one on the right. thanks! Chad

Update: It seems last update solved the issue.

I use Firefox 59 in Void Linux 32-bit.

Every time I open Firefox my search preferences are resetted.

I want to use DuckDuckGo as my default search engine, and I change the corresponding setting, but every time I re-open Firefox I find Google is once again my default search engine.

Also, if I delete a search engine in my list of search engines, or add a new search engine, or modify it in some way; the next time I open Firefox they come back to the original default settings.

It doesn't seem to be a problem of permissions. The ~/.mozilla folder has read, write and execute permissions. I can change other settings, like the homepage, and they stick after re-starting.

I tried using Firefox with a brand new profile with no addons, removing the ~/.mozilla folder, but the problem remains. I also removed the ~/.cache/mozilla directory, all in vain.

I also tried modifying values in about:config, setting browser.search.defaultenginename to DuckDuckGo.

I also modified the value in

browser.search.defaultenginename.US to data:text/plain,browser.search.defaultenginename.US=DuckDuckGo

It didn't work.

I asked about the problem in the appropriate Linux forum, they gave me different suggestions, but no one worked.

Finally I tried the Beta version of Firefox 60. It solves the issue, but another bug is introduced, so in the end I gain nothing changing to a less stable version.

Firefox can't open new tabs, focus in the address bar or go to the preferences / add-ons screen

My Firefox has randomly broken itself overnight. I'm on the latest version as of the 28th of March 2018.

When I start Firefox, I get no focus ring in the top search bar. I'm completely unable to open a new tab. If I try to open Preferences, it takes a good 30 seconds to do so, and once it opens I can't interact with the page other than scrolling it. I can't open the addons screen, or do anything else with the browser. Every interaction with the browser has a significant delay.

When I restart in safe mode, none of these problems occur. Please note I have tried the following steps already:

- Disabled all addons - Removed all addons - Disabled custom themes - Reverted to default theme - Disabled hardware acceleration

Can anyone please help? My browser is basically completely non-functional for no apparent reason. Please note that literally every other piece of software on my machine works fine, including other browsers like Safari and Chrome.

only happens if try to access a page from a drop down list on a certain website. if i right click and open in a new tab it opens the page. if i access the page from a bookmark it opens the page. it is only if i try to use the same tab that this error occurs.

The page isn’t redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

Google's rainbow G icon displays as my favicon for all YouTube pages and videos that I bookmark. But in the tab, YouTube's red rectangle with a white play arrow still appears.

This issue first appeared in my bookmarks several weeks ago. I do not have this issue in my Chrome browser. I've already tried the Forget About This Site option in History, but to no avail. I've also tried clearing cached web content and site data in Firefox's Options, again to no avail. Thanks in advance for any help.

Whenever I want to print something and change the settings, that means I click the button settings on the printer menu, firefox crashes. My printer is a Samsung SCX-4200R. My printer also started printing in the wrong size, that means only half of the pages are printed because the size chosen is bigger than the printer paper.
