So I wanted to read PDFs trough firefox with a dark theme, looked up how to do so online, and people say to change the "about:config" option "pdfjs.viewerCssTheme" to "2" instead of "0", I did that, tried opening a PDF, nothing happend, it was still black text on white backgrounds. Tried closing firefox, reopened the pdf, nothing happened, still white backgrounds. Tried to check if it might have to do with that specific pdf file's config, created my own PDF file from a word document, tried to open it, still white backgrounds. Tried disabling extensions, (which I use four of, UBlock Origin, SponsporBlock, Return Youtube Dislike and Translate this page), didn't work. Tried enabling the option on my laptop, didn't work. Tried a bunch of other stuff and it still won't work. My Firefox version is 109 and I'm using Windows 10 I also don't want to use the console/file edit thing with grayscale(1) invertcolor(1) or whatever it was since it also reverses the colors of images instead of just the backgrounda nd text color.

As you can see in the attached image of my old Overflow Menu, I had it customized with many buttons/extensions I often accessed throughout each day.

With the advent of FF ver 109, this functional flexibility has been completely lost. Now, there's no way to choose what buttons and to sort them in the Overflow Menu. In my view, an egregious loss of convenience and efficiency.

Please, bring back the full functionality of the previous Overflow Menu!!!

I am trying to have Firefox show an "X" on every tab as soon as I hover above it. I followed a certain article and implemented this code:

/* Show Tab Close buttons only when hovered */

  1. tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned="true"]) > .tab-stack > .tab-content > .tab-close-button {
 visibility: collapse !important;
 opacity: 0 !important;
 transition: all 250ms ease-in-out !important;

}

  1. tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned="true"]):hover > .tab-stack > .tab-content > .tab-close-button {
 visibility: visible !important;
 opacity: 1 !important;
 transition: all 250ms ease-in-out !important;;

}

  1. tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned="true"]) > .tab-stack > .tab-content > .tab-close-button {
 display: -moz-box !important;

}


This code is however not being implemented no matter how many times I restart Firefox. 'toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets' is set to True The location is userChrome.css is '/home/user1/.mozilla/firefox/yqomjsh9.default-release-1672744596809/chrome/userChrome.css'

What could be the issue? I tried adding executable permissions using "chmod" but that did not change anything.

Under "Settings" "files & attachments" there is a box labeled "Content Type". I want to list attached files that are encrypted with PGP so that I can save them to the folder where I download other files types like PGP keys or PDF files.

That is, I want to add "any file".pgp or .gpg on the list of "Content Type"

Since this is my first time using this support how do I find this thread if someone replies to it?

Can I set a Thunderbird message filter to ONLY receive emails from a specified list like .com, .net, .gov, .uk, .fr, .ca and 10-12 other countries or institutions? And all others go to Trash? If so, how do I do this? Thanks.

So this crazy new update has broken my Firefox in these ways:

1. All my bookmarks on my bookmarks bar have been deleted. 2. I can't drag any new links to the bookmarks bar 3. Overflow menu for apps is empty and will only let me drag Firefox defaults to it such as settings. Dragging apps to it is impossible. It "is" possible to pin items by using the Chrome puzzle piece..

Firefox: 109.0 OS: Windows 10 Pro

Using troubleshooting mode has no effect.

The latest update added persistent "More Tools" and "Extensions" icons on the top right of Firefox. Usually, by clicking "Customize Toolbar" I could remove any annoying icon that I don't want to persistently see, but it would seem that Firefox DISABLED the ability to remove these annoying icons. Please let us continue to customize our own toolbars and allow us to remove unwanted icons.

I reset the Windows OS on my PC. When I reinstalled Firefox and synced it, the extensions automatically returned but their icons were missing from the address bar.

Worse they only work if I click the extension drop-down and specifically the extension. They used to be aware of the website and automatically do their thing. E.g. the NordPass symbol previously appeared next to passwords and I could click to have the password automatically filled in. Now I have to select the NordPass extension and copy the items one by one into the form. Ditto for Grammerly

And still worse the setting was synced to my laptop.

Intune ExtensionSettings Policy No Longer Working in Firefox

Hello, in Firefox browser, my organization has always blocked all extensions except for ones we allow through OMA-URI ./Device/Vendor/MSFT/Policy/Config/Firefox~Policy~firefox~Extensions/ExtensionSettings.

About a month ago this stopped working and our end users can now install any extension in the Firefox browser that they choose, without approval, creating a security risk.

When checking in about:policies, there is a policy error: Unable to parse JSON for ExtensionSettings. We have checked with Microsoft Intune support and they verified that the policy looks to be configured and targeted correctly.

Here is a snippet of our JSON, this is a test policy where microsoft support had us remove "about:addons" from the 'install sources'. Both test and production policies are not working.

<enabled/>
<data id="ExtensionSettings" value='
{
    "*": {
        "blocked_install_message": "Contact Service Line",

    },
    "jid1-5AULKXLKGyjuLQ@jetpack": {

Is this a bug? Or something wrong with our configuration? Has firefox changed the requirements of the extensionsettings OMA-URI?

Thanks for any help in advance.

All of a sudden when I press F6, it starts a Google search (see image) instead of just focusing the address bar. This is rather annoying because I use F6 all the time to go to a different page (e.g. type "mail" and then follow the autocomplete to mail.google.com) and that doesn't work if it wants search google for mail instead.

How do I revert this to its normal behaviour?

I have used Thunderbird for years and recently it has started arbitrarily changing folders to threaded view.

The process of using mailnews.default_view_flags for new folders is ok, until Thunderbird randomly changes them back to threaded view. The process of column header on the far right to change a folder back to threaded view works for a while, until Thunderbird randomly changes them back to threaded view. The process of using shift select and then the column header on the far right to change folders back to threaded view works for a while, until Thunderbird randomly changes them back to threaded view.

The question is two fold: 1) Why does Thunderbird arbitrarily change folders to threaded view? 2) How can Thunderbird be stopped from arbitrarily changing folders to threaded view?

I have just migrated from Windows 10 to 11 following purchase of a new PC.

I receive daily messages from two group. Both appear to paste a page into the circular. In my old set up, these pages fitted the width of the screen. Now they use about one-third of the width.

How do I increase the size of the page to make it easier to read? I could read in browser, but would prefer to read in the email.
