When I'm hovering the mouse over a link, a URL status bar appears at the bottom of the window. Is there any way to change the background and text color of that URL status bar? I'm attaching an image showing what is that status bar.


Thanks, Itai

Cookie settings: Exceptions do not work

Hallo,

I have changed the security settings in the Firefox browser so that I can block cookies. I am aware that almost all pages ask for it. But you can also make exceptions. I did this for my bank page, because I have to register my browser every time I close and reopen the browser. If I put the URL and the extension in the exceptions, only the basic URL is displayed, but not the extension.

Example: https://banking.bankaustria.at/wps/portal/retail/de/login/login/!ut/p/a1/jZDLDoIwFES_hqX0CqLVXVVCgs8EiNiNKRERhULaIvHvRVcafM3uTs5MJhdRFCLK2SVNmEoLzrL7Tfs7Y4hJF3swB3diARnPg94MD7rgWQ2wfQacqWMDmToD3wssAAP-y8MHkZ_5DaKviGMvDCCuj5czOzDHK7MFtCc-gC8bXESTrIge_9gSHpk4QVTEh1jEQq9EYx-VKuVIAw3qutYjxs-skkqkTGdKA6N3LaoOi_I421c80U-yfNd0LKRCYbsAlXkQQrrON1iSG1SR8_k!/dl5/d5/L2dBISEvZ0FBIS9nQSEh/

This is the page for entering the login data. If I copy this URL into the exceptions for blocking cookies, only "https://banking.bankaustria.at" appears there. I still have to confirm my browser registration with a TAN.

Is there perhaps another option so that I don't have to register every time - other than generally allowing cookies?

Thanks and regards Eric

I want to restore part of a large bookmark library, say 100 out of 800. I have both HDMI and JSON backups but they seem to want to only restore the entire library. I seem to be constantly "loosing" segments of my bookmarks. Some time later, they seem to show back up.???

Firefox warned me that they had stopped a social media site from following me. GOOD but worrying, the warning came just after I failed to get into my bank account for the first time in four years. Which social media site was this? I do not use ANY?

This is absolutely ridiculous, Mozilla. I was going through the privacy settings on Firefox today and was reading about "primary password" to see if it is a feature I might want to use to control my passwords. NOT control people. Just passwords. And then I saw it. This inane explanation that the word "master" somehow perpetuates racism. This is NOT true. The term master, like every word in the dictionary, has multiple meanings in multiple contexts. In the context of passwords, it in no way, shape, or form "perpetuates racism" or "exclude" or "damage" people. We are talking about passwords! Do you know what DOES damage people and promote unnecessary awkwardness among people?? Garbage like this. Trying to surgically change normal, everyday words and impute some dark, sinister, nefarious, or otherwise negative meaning to perfectly innocent words and forms of expression with absolutely zero tie-in to past historical phenomena that occurred across the entire globe. This constant word policing causes more damage, more hurt feelings, more social strife, because it puts everyone on eggshells, constantly worried that the slightest utterance of a syllable is going to be taken the wrong way and used to accuse innocent people of horrible and unthinkable malice. This is a very WRONG approach to take, Mozilla. You are perpetuating and exacerbating ignorance and tension where no tension should be present. You are part of the problem, not the solution.

I followed this post to add your own background to the Firefox homepage from a year ago to a T (reading all the posts to not miss anything) but I cant seem to make it work. I'm wondering if this either doesn't work anymore, or I passed over something very minor somehow. I made sure to edit the URL to match my own and my picture name, I made a userChrome.css, I'm not too sure what to do. I'll have to look over it again later.

After the last update 84.0.2 the "Other bookmarks" folder appeared on the bookmarks bar. I have not found a way to remove it and I find it useless and annoying as it takes away space for other more commonly used bookmarks. Anyone can give me instructions on how to make it disappear from my bookmarks bar. On another computer not yet updated to version 84.02 even with the synchronization active, the problem does not exist.

Thanks to those who want to help me.

Hello, I am still running Win7. After this morning reboot, firefox did not start, messaging: "Der Prozedureinsprungspunkt "sql3lite_database_file_object" wurde in der DLL "nss3.dll" nicht gefunden. After that a message windows says: "Couldn't load" XPCOM. I tried to reinstall firefox downloading it with another browser, but the installation (I am now working with) seems to be somehow parallel, i.e. I don't have my profile and extensions, passwords, etc. And the look ist different.

Thanks in davance for any help.

Addons use to show up at the top right hand part of the screen. I have checked solutions but haven't found one that fixes the addon problem. I would like to see how many sites have been blocked. I asked this question a little earlier today and one community member said to click on the >> at the left of the tool bar. I do not have any of those marks on my tool bar. Any other suggestions? Thank you.

We love Firefox except for: • The automatic updates. We’ve turned this off in options, but updates still take place without our approval and they really screw up our pages. What do we have to do to prevent this from happening? • What if we do NOT want Firefox to be our default browser?
