I switched to Firefox DE because I wasn't able to install 3rd party extensions. Just now, my middle click isn't working. I can't use the middle click to open/close tabs and to open links in a new tab. I checked my settings, tried a new profile, nothing works except in normal Firefox, the middle mouse does work, but I don't want to switch to that. My middle click also works in Edge and other apps, but please fix this issue as soon as possible. Thank you.


PS. Please add biometrics to Firefox, like how Google did with Chrome.

I've recently tried to use containers for something new, but I can't seem to get it to do what I want -assuming it's even possible. Is there a way to either have part of a website excluded from "always open in container" or to remove a specific tab from a container if it's "always open in container"? I want the majority of it to be inside of the container, but there are some occasions where I want it outside of one.

Browser tabs have no defined outline, very hard to see

My issue is I can't see the outlines of the tabs. It's just a broad, pale blue area above the page content, barely distinguished from the white background of the content itself. I can't see the address bar, either. Why don't applications use borders any more? It's really, really annoying. At least the + sign to create a new tab has made a re-appearance, along with the X's on the tabs to close them (I couldn't find them when I started up Windows this morning, started searching frantically for a setting to display them as it seemed like there was no tab bar at all, and eventually they reappeared and I have no idea how).

I really hope there is something to be done short of editing a .css file somewhere, but if that's what has to be done, please tell me where to find the file and ideally, what elements in it I need to modify.

BTW, thank you for putting outlines on the text entry fields for this web form. An awful lot of web site developers don't seem to think they are necessary.

I'm not sure that I can get any help with my problem but I need to try. Always after a format of my PC when I reinstall new windows and log in to my Mozilla account my saved tabs come back with my account. This time it didn't happen. Can I get any data restoration or something like that? I formatted my PC on November 21. Can I somehow get them back from one day before?

Middle Mouse clicking on links anywhere else works as it should, it only do it on twitter for some reasons. Shift middle mouse doesn't work either

But clicking on an IMAGE on twitter does work normally.

Hello. I was having issues with my open tabs in FF crashing in the past 24 hours. I had to restart FF this morning to get the problem to stop.

To my dismay, it appears that all of my Onetab data saved over the past year was wiped out in the process. I'm a writer, and I save these links for article research, and would like to recover as many as possible.

Any assistance would be appreciated! I use Idrive for backup, and would need to know the directory pathway if they were to help me to recover this data (if that's even possible).

Thanks in advance! Claudia

Hello there. I need some help in getting rid of that smaller google search tab in my upper left hand corner. I have google search as my search engine in Firefox. That works just fine.

When i go to open up Firefox on my desktop it opens up just fine but on upper left hand corner of google search page there is another google search tab which is much smaller. I don't want that at all. How do i get rid of it and just have the bigger google search in middle of page. Thank You. [removed email from public]

It seems every time I update Firefox they add something else I don't like. Recently, I did the update, and now my tabs are too tall and I can't access my menu, and/or they interfere with the Min and Max l buttons on the top right.

How do I adjust the height of the tabs so they don't go all the way to the top of the browser screen?

I am hopeful you will be able to help me. All open tabs NOW disappear after power failure or Comcast temporarily loses service or I restart my computer. This never happened to me before ~ if my computer was affected by outage or I manually restarted it a message came up to click on asking if I wanted my tabs restored. 1 click and they were restored ~ that option is not available to me now. It's frustrating and time consuming for me to "look" for, and "try" to find those tabs I had open. If someone does respond to my question I won't know its been done unless I receive an email because I'm not certain I can find my way back to this support page, primarily because I cannot remember HOW I even found this page in the first place! I bookmarked this page so perhaps I will be able to return to it. Thanks for the "How to restore tabs" help I HOPE you can give me. Marilyn West

When Adding a Shortcut to the Android Home Screen, it allows you with a pop-up option to Rename the Shortcut before placing it on your Home Screen.

However, when attempting to Install a Progressive Web App (from compatible Web App web sites), and clicking Install, it does NOT give you the opportunity to Rename the Shortcut.

In contrast, Chrome/Android allows the name change in both cases (non-Web App and Web App sites).

Is this feature in the works on FireFox Android?

Is there a work-around to Rename Shortcuts either before or after placing them on the Home Screen ?
