Q: Does anyone know if Firefox has maybe re-instated pinch zoom functionality for Mac users?

Or if there is a decent work around available yet?

And if not, anyone have a good answer as to why Firefox overlooked it in their last major update? Seems rather shortsighted to me. Not being able to pinch zoom on my mac trackpad is highly frustrating. It's pretty much a deal breaker, making me want to migrate back to Chrome or elsewhere. Which is sad, because I thought I'd finally escaped Google for browsing.

I have several Extensions enabled like Badger and Weather and several more. Used to have an emblem for each one at the top right of my Firefox Home page but the Extension emblems or icons aren't there anymore. These Extensions are enabled. I can verify that. For instance I know I have the Weather Extension but without the icon to click on I can't open it. How can I put these icons back so I can use them? I looked under options on the General Page and I saw where you can drag icons from there back to the upper toolbar but the icons for my Extensions aren't there to drag back. The Extension icon is there... looks like a piece of a puzzle. I dragged that to the toolbar but when I click on it it goes to a page showing that my extensions are enabled. But I still can't open the Weather extension on that page. I know if I had the weather icon back on the upper toolbar it will show me the weather. Thanks for you help

I like to disable the automatic restore of sessions in all circumstances. I'd prefer to retain my history though.

Using firefox 84.0.2 on Ubuntu 20.04 Whenever I logout/login or restart the OS, FF restores my last session without asking. It's ok when I close FF first (FF starts a new session) but every other app shuts and resumes gracefully.

There are a lot of similar questions suggesting various settings...

browser.sessionhistory.max_entries =0 browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewers=0 browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes=0 browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo=0 browser.sessionstore.max_windows_undo=0 browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash=false

"Restore previous session" is unset.

None of this solves the problem.

Comments on other post suggest that linux shut down causes FF to crash. Seems that you cannot disable the restore session after crash and I get no "Do you want to...." screen.

Is there no way to tell FF not to restore crashed sessions?

I am using the ESR versions of Firefox and would really like to have the clients auto-update as soon as possible but I still want to test new major releases when the come available. Now I know I can use the early releases to test but that pins me down because then I need to be done testing before the public release comes out. So I am looking for an option to install auto-install all minor updates within the same major version but not auto-update to a new major version. Is something like this possible or where can I find this setting?

In my experience, the remote support, single check mark setting on the Mac doesn't allow all images to be downloaded, including normal stuff like images from the Boston Globe and other sites. The support page is a for a windows version of TBird and it's not possible on the Mac to specify individual sites to be allowed to download as shown in the documentation. Is this going to be fixed? It's a PITA the way it is. If I have missed a way to get this functionality to work correctly, please let me know. My TBird version is 78.6.1 and OS X Mojave 10.14.6 Thanks

I run a number of filters to move mail from various groups into their respective folders. I would like to get the New Mail Sound only for emails that are not so filtered, i.e., for me personally. But the new mail sound plays for all incoming emails. It seems that a solution would be for filter actions to have a Play Sound option. Then I could create a "fake filter" at the end of the filter list that would only play the new mail sound when it didn't get filtered. Possible? TIA Don

I use filters to sort my emails into different folders. I like the "new message" notifications, but some of my folders are less important than others and I would rather not be bothered with new message notifications from those folders. Is there any way to configure these notifications to only look at certain folders?

I wanted to know if we can condense all the browser extension into a single extension icon and then click on an individual icon to access it's options. That would save a lot of space and clear the clutter from the toolbar. This feature has been implemented in Chrome and I have attached a screenshot as a reference. Any help would be great.
