I have the option set to always ask me if I want to open a pdf with browser, acrobat, or to download. I usually select open with Acrobat and, for the last few months, I have been getting an unwanted download as well. I found in the help articles that this is now the default action. For me, it usually means that at the end of a session i have to go to my desktop (my optioned destination for downloads) and clean it up by deleting every file I have looked at.

I recommend that you make that functionality optional. I just want to view the vast majority of things I open. For the few that I might want to download after viewing them, i would prefer to take a proactive step to download them after I have reviewed them.

I've just updated to Firefox 125 and now, when I start to type in the URL bar and get my suggestion dropdown of previously visited pages, I no longer can see the actual url for each entry. All I see is the top level name for each entry.

This is not helpful, as I may have perviously visited a number of pages on that site and the information shown does not give me a way to differentiate sufficiently between those pages.

How can I get the exact url displayed on the suggestions dropdown.

How can I get those top level descriptions NOT displayed, so that only the urls are shown?

I have Thunderbird set up on PC and a Laptop. On the PC I have version 115.9 installed and the Laptop (which is a more recent purchase) version 115.10.

On the PC I can easily sort by "date", "correspondent", etc as there are click buttons at the top of each column but these do not appear in version 115.10.

I have looked at all the view menu options and cannot see that anything will help to change this. Was this functionality removed in the upgrade or is there a way to alter the view settings? The screen shot is from the Laptop.

TIA

All my menu texts are so TINY now, that I can't read them, but the browser page is SO WIDE that I can't ever see a whole page and I have to scroll from side to side to read things, which is a ROYAL PAIN as I miss seeing a lot of things. No one can seem to help. I tried the limited percentage things, 67% used to work but now that is too big and when I go smaller I can't read ANY of the text, it is TOO TINY! I can't do my work! The screen shot won't paste on here.

As from v100.0, Firefox allows users to "set their preferred color schemes for websites".

Ironically, this does not addresses complaints from users, including me, who wish for a consistent Light theme all across Firefox.

Even if "Web site appearance" is set as Light, the following still remain dark:

  • Background of main drop-down menu (Containing "Sync and save data", "New tab", "Print", "Settings", etc)
  • Background of right-click menu (Containing the refresh icon, "Save page as", "View page source", etc)
  • Background of "Please enter primary password" menu
  • Background of auto-filled user name and password menus
  • Background of elements in a bookmark folder
  • Background of Downloads menu
  • Background of Print menu
  • Background of "Clear all history" menu
  • Background of "Find on this page" menu
  • Background of "You are about to close X tabs" warning menu
  • Colour of title bar for "About Mozilla Firefox" window, when the window is not currently active

Being able to set "browser.theme.toolbar-theme" permanently as 2 would fix all of the above, but users are still (Note: Since v96.0, when this complaint was raised) prevented from doing so. Why?

Having issue with the signature staying in Thunderbird.

Some online help articles say there's an OK button to hit after pasting a signature in the box. I do not see one. On the latest version 115.6.1

Also I checked use HTML. Works fine when I go to sent an email right after doing this. However, after closing Thunderbird, it reverts back to an old signature.

Any ideas?

This question was asked here and the answer worked for some years, but no longer does.

The method was pretty simple, just change browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground from the default FALSE to TRUE.

An update in the last few months (not sure which) broke this. So, what is the new way of doing this?

(Running TB v102.4.2 on LM 20.4)

After the latest update (124.0.2), two of my add-ons (Tapermonkey and Youtube Redux) are not working, even though Firefox says they're enabled, and it is giving no indication that the add-ons aren't working, no pop-ups to enable some permission for these extensions. Both of them reformat the layout of websites to make them more usable, and using sites without them is basically impossible for me. I have tried:

  • Restarting Firefox
  • Disabling the add-ons, refreshing, enabling the add-ons, and refreshing again
  • Checking for add-on updates (everything is updated)
  • Deleting and reinstalling the add-ons
  • Restarting my computer
  • Checking the permissions in the extension menu
  • Turning off all other extensions except for one of the ones with issues
  • Reading through the FAQs and help pages and following the instructions on some of them

Nothing has worked. Every time I reload one of the sites affected by this to check if it's finally worked, the site takes a very long time to load. Since these add-ons are for different websites and both aren't working, I know that the problem is not with the sites themselves. Thank you.

For the past few months every restart of Firefox disables LastPass. I did NOT have this problem previously. The version of LastPass is current (no updates found). I can go to Add-ons and the toggle is set to "on" but the icon in the menu bar is black. If I click the toggle off, then back on, LastPass comes on just fine. Why is Firefox disabling something that Add-ons says is loaded? VERY strange. Does NOT happen in Chrome. Thanks for any assistance. PITB!!!

I got help with this from your group some weeks ago, but I had to reinstall my Ubuntu OS (linux v.20.04.4 -- using firefox) recently and can't recall the answer.

When I view a WikiSpecies list of file names (e. g., see https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Pentatominae), the instances which have been installed but never used should be in a different (reddish) color. I am attaching an image of a page containing a file named "Abadia" (first one on the left, just under "A") which is unused. I also am attaching an empty "Creating Abadia" which is the result of clicking on "Abadia".

Please tell me how to change the image of an unused, empty file. I recall that there were two different choices SOMEWHERE in the system, "Always" and "Never" I think: One of them forces a system-level color pattern which includes reddish unused items; the other allows the used to program arbitrary displays such as the above (typical example from the dconf editor is 'bg_color: #f0f1f2; selected_bg_color: #023C88', but this editor does not change the appearance of a file instance.

Hi!

I hardly use tabs, and I have a widescreen notebook. So one of the most important features a browser must have is not to waste vertical space.

Unfortunately, Firefefox still has always tab bar open even if there is only one tab.

There was a css code to overcome this problem. Unfortunately, it does not work with FF 106 anymore (another one stopped working with 103). It always shows a "+" sign and uses vertical space.

1. ) How can I get rid of the tab bar? Is there a working css code or is it a feature now of FF? 2.) BTW, also one of the most important addons for me "I don't care about cookies" is not working anymore 3.) How can I fully stop updates? They are causing far too many problems 4.) I already know that css and addons are not officially supported by Mozilla.
