For those who are not happy with Firefox's removal of the downloads display progress bar in the 25 series, you'll be even more unhappy with the 26 series. Even typing about:config and isetting browser.download.useToolkitUI to true no longer works. I sincerely despise companies that DO NOT provide their users OPTIONS, OPTIONS. OPTIONS! Instead of pissing off a sizable number of people who prefer things the way they were. Stop changing things for the worst! I want to monitor my downloads progress without having to take an extra step by clicking on the "Library" tab. Who are you trying to impress?

I installed addons (e.g. adblock lite, ad killer) and when I shutdown Windows and start it again, the addons disappeared in Firefox. I'm using Firefox 40.0.3 non of addons will stay. I restored Firefox to its original state, installed everything again, also did the Malware scan as suggested on a post and the problem stays. So every time I start Firefox, have to install the add ons which is a bit hectic.


Please help me with some solution.

Can I get contacts sidebar to default to "Personal Addresses" rather than "All Address Books" after quitting and relaunching TB?

Running TB 38.0 on an iMac, OS 10.6.8. This seems to be new problem as of the past day or two. I noticed all sorts of extraneous contacts listed in the sidebar, and realized that those were in an address book, separate from my personal addresses, that lists incoming addresses I've granted permission to load "remote content." Eventually, I realized that this was because the pop-up at the top of the contacts sidebar was set to display "all address books" rather than my "personal address book." If I reset the pop-up to "personal address book," it displays the correct list, and will default to the "personal address book" in subsequent composition windows that I open during the same session. However, if I quit TB, when I relaunch TB the sidebar reverts to "All Address Books" by default. How can I get it to retain "personal address book" by default, even if this is the first message I'm composing after launching TB? It did so in the past!

Hi,

I'm trying to install an addon for my users at my company. I have about 4500 machines that need to have this extension installed and I can't find what I need in order to install the extension globally through the registry. Mozilla just came out with Firefox 75 and now I can't add an addon to the browser without having to remote into the computer and move the extension into the browser to install the addon, I would like to avoid to minimize impact to my company's resources.

I've tried this site below. Tried to put an entry into the registry and it's not working. https://extensionworkshop.com/documentation/enterprise/enterprise-distribution/#installation-using-windows-registry

Tried this site to try and find the GUID folder and can't find it in the Roaming folder https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cannot-remove-add-on-extension-or-theme

Tried this site but still can't find the GUID folder in roaming https://extensionworkshop.com/documentation/publish/distribute-sideloading/

Could I get steps on how to install an addon into the registry for Firefox 75?

Hello,

I love FF and have used it for many years. However, every time I open it, I have to adjust the initial window size and then at least 1 more new window. I am using 65.0.2 64 bit on a Windows 7 machine. I was reading and saw a suggestion to use the command line switches to set the window width and height. So I made a shortcut with the target line as "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -height 850 -width 1800. This doesn't work. So what am I doing wrong or is there an easier way to accomplish this? I am very surprised that there is nothing in the about:config that would allow this type of customization. I also am baffled at what window size is presumed by FF.

Thanks for your help in advance!

I am new to Thunderbird. I installed it on my Windows 10 PC and there is a blank line between each inbox entry. So far I am unable to figure out how to get Thunderbird 60.6.1 on my iMac (running Mojave 10.14.4) to automatically insert a blank line (i.e. double space) between each inbox entry. I find that the double spacing makes it much easier to review incoming messages.

Thanks

My download library window used to display files well over a year old, everything I have saved since the last time I deleted all browser history. Recently, everything older than six months was no longer displayed. The files are still there, I just have to search for them. Now it no longer shows anything older than 4 months. "Show all history" does not work. Is there a way to restore that list?

You have until Saturday morning, January 19 to get this fixed. There are to many other browsing options to be putting up with this.

How do I get FF back to where a new tab opens muy home page. I HATE that dumb ass splash page with all kinds of thumbnails of pages.

In the 'new and improved' release of FF, when I open a new tab, instead of getting my home page which is which is the obvious starting point for ANY new tab, I get some god awful splash page with all kinds of thumbnails of various pages I have visited. This is 100% totally useless to me. How do I get this fixed so a new tab works the way it is supposed to? I tried installing a plug in but it disabled itself immediately and had an orange bar nest to it in the add on list.

I REALLY do appreciate the hard work that developers put into projects like this. I just wish they would quit fixing things that are not broken just to be able to say they have a 'new nd improved' release!

In FF version 43 you took the drop down arrow (right next to the refresh arrow) and made it invisible. The only way to make it appear is to hover your mouse in the URL box and the only way to make it work it to hover over it directly.

Can we just have the arrow visible all the time. I don't like having to hunt for it.

Also if someone is using FF for the first time, they'll never even know the arrow is there.

Why is it hidden now (kind of stupid)?

Hey, I have en-GB version of Firefox installed, but when I look at Language Settings, there's English (United States) under the default UK one. It seems like the US one can't be removed since the remove button is greyed out for it. I specifically installed the en-GB version of Firefox, just to be clear. Why is Mozilla forcing US English like this?

Thank you.
