accessibility keyboard shortcut to open "hamburger"(3 lines) Menu?

Hi, good day/evening you all. Hey with a temporary disability I have a real need to limit my mousing and would love to see a feature request I could give a thumbs up on -- for the 3 line menu at the top right being accessible via keyboard. (Also at least some of the choices on it such as History via a hotkey -- after I have the main menu open. By the way I know about pressing Alt, then any of the hotkeys on the old school hidden menu bar -- I'm instead talking about the new always visible hamburger menu icon.)

Where would I search to see if there's been any discussion or progress on that? Bugzilla?

Sorry I'm new to this type of questioning. Any tips would be greatly appreciated and my body would appreciate it too! :-)

Good day. I use Firefox everyday to connect to network devices that produce PCAP files. These files are opened in Wireshark. I am running macOS Monterey 12.3.1. In the past, I was able to click on the pcap file in the browser and Firefox would launch Wireshark and open the file. It was very quick and saved me a bunch of time. However all of a sudden this stopped. It now asks me to download the file and then I need to go looking for it and doubleclick on it to open. I read a bunch of articles but none appear to work; for instance, there is no option to `open with` (as some articles claim) when the download dialog box pops up. I tried looking for the handlers.json file and tried these two options, none of which worked:

Tried this one first `"application/x-pcapfile":{"action":4,"extensions":["pcap"]}`

Then tried this one `"application/pcap-file":{"action":4,"extensions":["pcap"]},"application/x-pcapfile":{"action":4,"extensions":["pcap"]}`

All it did is reset the handlers.json and created a `handlers.json.corrupt`

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

I am looking for a toolbar addon that allows shortcuts to local applications. Example, shortcuts to notepad, word, calc etc... on a toolbar (like the firefox [CTRL]+[SHIFT]+[B]-toolbar)

There are launchers and such to launch applications, but I just want a dedicated toolbar for this where I can place shortcuts to firefox tools/utilities on there.

10+ years ago there was an addon for firefox that was a simple toolbar which could handle url's, local applications...anything as long as it could be created as a shortcut on the desktop. But I can't find it anymore it probably got dis-continued.

Any suggestion is very welcome.

Thanks.

Until the last few updates of Thunderbird, message threading worked great.

Now, whenever a new message pops into my inbox, it disables the threaded view and I get the flat view. Yes, I've followed the tutorial and tuned threaded view on. However, when new message comes into the inbox, it automatically turns it off no matter what options I set.

Is this just a bug, or is there some setting I'm missing?

When I download an attachment from my emails, why does it automatically download to my desktop when it opens? I think it all started when I did an update with Firefox? So all the attachments that I opened up all week are on my desktop, and I did not realize it :( I usually click on the arrow on the attachment I open it up in Adobe Reader, then if I want to save it to

the desktop, I do Save As.

I went to settings tried everything still on the desktop. Please tell me what to change, PLEASE!

I have a site where I need to download 250 licenses individually for products I own. Each link is the same exact text "Download License". Is it possible search for that term *and* somehow be able to "click" it using the keyboard instead of the mouse? I could fly through this process if I didn't have to use the mouse.

Witam, od paru dni pojawił mi się problem z szybkim filtrowaniem (ctrl+Shift+K) Mianowicie, wpisując w pole wyszukiwania dowolną frazę, nie pojawiają mi się opcje wyszukiwania pod okienkiem. Ponadto program nie szuka frazy którą wpisuję w okienko. Sprawdzałem istniejące wątki pomocy, jednak nic co było tam wskazywane nie rozwiązało problemu. (indeksowanie ->jest, plik global usuwałem itp.) Proszę o ewentualne wskazówki jak można z tego wybrnąć. Pozdrawiam, Łukasz Piskorz

No Choices In Background and Text colors

My computer almost feels like it's been infected with some sort of virus but from the other posts I understand that this is, for some reason, an issue where user control has become non-existent and that's how it was built. When I try any of the workarounds mentioned here I still have a choice between only gray and white for the background depending on what the theme is? I've tried both and many pages with the gray background open with red or green text and other sites with the white will show bright yellow text. I use Firefox for the outstanding privacy and speed and have for more that 10 years. Another reason was the control I had in making the page my own but that seems to have been taken away for some reason. Does anyone know how to actually regain that control without unsupported workarounds. Apparently the only actual choice is to install WIN11 (which has, once again, changed where menu items can be found and some disappeared altogether). Two miserable choices because someone thought forcing all pages to follow simple, but nonsensical rules. I've added a screenshot page from Ars Technica to illustrate. (I can't seem to add a link to the article without the long URL showing) The entire article is white text and simply disappears. What can I do to regain control?

I'm using Thunderbird on Linux (currently 91.x) with an additional add-on for spellchecking. As so, I don't need the default spellcheck system, and I have disabled it in main settings.

However, when I write an email, the default spellchecking is still working in the composition window in message part (but not in the subject field). When look into the "Options" menu, the spellchecking is marked as disabled. What interesting, if I then activate it and deactivate again, the spellchecking feature is properly disabled.

Any ideas what I did wrong, or shall I just report a bug?
