At one point I had a bookmark that took me to my bookmarks library, one that worked like any other webpage using a chrome:// link. Well I accidentally deleted it and now can't get it back. I've tried making a bookmark that goes to chrome://bookmarks and chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul, but neither work. All the other questions I've found about this are from 2013 or earlier.

I am running Win 10. When I read The Economist, Firefox clips the last word off of each line of text. I am unable to adjust Firefox to eliminate the problem. When I read the same article from The Economist using the Chrome browser, NO WORDS ARE CLIPPED FROM THE END OF EACH LINE OF TEXT. The Economist customer help says that this is a Firefox formatting problem

A new feature (Firefox 73), presumably related to the URL bar Page Actions, is the popup of twitter and email icons that appears when text is selected on a webpage. The text is also yellow highlighted. This behavior occurs in safe mode, so it must be a Firefox feature.

The popup is intrusive. How is it disabled?

Hi. I'm using Firefox Preview for Android. Thanks for developing it.

I'd like to ask someone to change button layout in page menu. It means the buttons to move forward, to bookmark, to share, and to reload. I think that if the layout is changed, I will glad to it. I suggest an order: move forward, reload, bookmark, and share. I'm not able to explain why I'm feeling uncomfortable, but I often wander about finding where the share button is.

Thank you for reading it.

Using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1 Firefox 73.0.1 64-bit When I close several tabs, a message box appears telling me that tabs will be closed in 20 seconds, or to click to avoid that. If I dismiss the box by clicking on the window-frame "X", Firefox closes too many tabs. (The box disappears after a few seconds.) I wish not to see that box. I wish Firefox to do nothing I do not trigger myself. How do I eliminate that function entirely?

I am a dyslexic (and die-hard) Firefox user. Along the course of the years, I found out that inverting the text-background colors is a good practice to reduce the eye-straining and increase my reading speed.

To achieve this in Firefox, I installed "Dark Background Light Text" add-on and it I used to work out extremely good. However, in June 2018 (Firefox 61) this add-on lost the priviledge to operate in the embedded PDF viewer. This is extremely painful (considering that on average I open 40-50 PDF per week), and I often I have to download/open the documents outside Firefox. This often turns out to be a disrupting process, that makes me lose focus when swapping back and forth between the PDF viewer, my IDE and the browser.

I don't know whether there is a way to activate this feature and I think I made a couple of requests to implement it, but, as of now, I've never received any answer. What makes things worse the Firefox's PDF viewer is the __only__ viewer that doesn't support this feature natively. Is there a way to enable this in Firefox? (I could be as desperate as to try to volunteer to implementing it in the code myself)

Please, don't leave my support request unanswered any longer.

Because of problems with FF, uninstalled and reinstalled it. (Turns out the problem was with 0Patch, not FF.) The old version was 32 bit, the new one 64 bit. But there are many references (75 of them) in registry to Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\Firefox.exe. Is it safe to delete them? (I am comfortable working with the registry.)
