Good Morning

Today I had to repair Firefox and after restarting, I felt a strange scrolling sensation, it was not the normal Firefox scrolling, I even thought I had openend the wrong browser...so I went check about:config , and found some values where changed as new default values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 200 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 50

I tought it was me the problem so I installed an older version of Firefox (80.0) in order to compare, and found a normal scrolling and those values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 400 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 200

I think this is a mistake from devs, if i wanted to have horrible scrolling, I could just use Edge instead of Firefox, could you please bring the original scrolling back to Firefox?

Thanks

I do not use the majority of keyboard controls in Firefox-- only Ctrl+F. Lately, I've noticed that using Ctrl+I in editor windows also pops up the Page Info window, which I have never used on purpose and am perfectly comfortable accessing via Firefox's menubar.

I have been searching for over an hour, and every Firefox add-on that I can find to fix this problem has been removed.

Ideally, I would like to be able to configure all of my keyboard shortcuts, but practically I will settle for being able to disable Ctrl-B, Ctrl-I, and Ctrl-U.

I rather switch to another browser if I cannot get rid of this. Checked my 3 plug-ins, but cannot find anything there, nor if it is something on Facebook I cannot find it. Any idea?

Greetings everyone,

This question has been on my mind for a long time as I have multiple Firefox Add-Ons I want to use but I've been avoiding using any Firefox Add-Ons as I do not know which Firefox Add-Ons are safe... :'(

Since I use Firefox for so many of my personal and important things I just want to know that the Firefox Add-Ons are safe.

How can I know which Firefox Add-Ons are safe?

I'd really appreciate any advice.

So, I just upgraded to version 78.1 and I just hate the way it looks. The old folders used to be yellow and distinct. The new folders are white with a blue outline of the same color as the rest of the theme. I hate that. It all just looks the same, as if they are trying to hide everything with the same color. This may be the "Modern Trend" but I hate the modern trend. I like things to stay the same. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Is there a way to get the old look back? I looked through the addon themes, but there are only three that are compatible with my version and they are all crazy stuff that I hate worst than the new default theme.

I know there are a lot of people, who never add a extension. But most of us get one or more extensions. I really like searching for them. I install them one at a time, and test them. If they crash Firefox, I go back and let them know, and they fix it. Also when you go to install a extension, it says which versions of Firefox it is compatible with. As this new version has been in beta for about a year there should be a lot more than nine extensions available for me to test. There should be so many by now that it should have its own search page separate from the old Firefox for Android search page. But you let it come out of beta with only nine recommended extensions, and no search page, and no way for me to install the extensions that I like to use, to test if they will work with the new version. So for now I have to wait for how many updates, before I get a update that has a link to a search page for the new Firefox for Android Extensions. Then I can search for my favorite extensions and find out if they say they are compatible with this version, then I have to test them! you guys are really being slow about this!

With the latest update my message toolbar got changed and I can't figure out how to fix it. This is the one with Reply, Forward, Archive, Junk, Delete, More. I want the Delete button (the most frequently used) to be on the far right side with a gap beside it so that other buttons aren't pressed by accident. There is no customize option for this toolbar and the customize dialog for the main toolbar doesn't work for this toolbar.

I think this probably got broken in the latest upgrade. Until it is fixed, where can I find where this customization is stored so that I can fix the toolbar to a more logical layout?

Thanks.

Suddenly it says "The messages you have deleted can be purged from disk" every time I move emails. Every stupid time. Probably a very useful feature but just not how I have used things for the last decade or so. At first all I wanted to say was 'thank you but no thank you" Now it is getting beyond a joke. How do I get rid of this without deleting any emails? Yes I know they are nominally deleted but I've use that as an easy way to archive them and then copy them off as a history trail. All my accounts are carefully set to "Don't delete any messages". I like that. I mean it.

Is there a shortcut to just directly take a screenshot of the whole page? Is there a way to configure such a shortcut if there isn’t one by default?

Thanks!

  • After I updated to Firefox 83, my bookmark and history shortcuts now up inside the URL bar instead of next to it (Picture 1) (I know this is part of the new update 83, how can I change this back?)
  • Additional settings for the URL bar show up (as they should) after I go to a new website. Usually these options are always there (Picture 2) However, all these options disappear (Picture 3) as soon as I type anything in the URL bar and these settings won't return until I open a new tab and go to a website.
  • Lastly, when switching between search engines I know have to click the search engine and then also click enter to complete the switch. (I know this can be 'solved' shift+clicking, but I would prefer for it not to take an extra action and revert back the old pre FF-83 way)

Does anyone have any how I can change it back? - Either by reverting back to FF82, or by using about:config

For ages now I have been using about:config to stop the URL bar becoming bigger when you click it in (see attached image), but my Firefox automatically updated yesterday and I no longer have the option to stop this from happening. As well as becoming bigger when you click in it, the thing I find most annoying is that it automatically enlarges and flashes the cursor in the search bar when you click the new tab button, which I don't want as I mostly open a new tab to use the bookmark bar so have no need of the search bar at the point. Is there any way to stop this happening, please? I've been through loads of the options on about:config that used to work but seemingly no longer! I find it such a nuisance and just want it gone - any ideas?
