Firefox 78.1 ESR W7

Is there any way to get the menu bar to have a unified appearance? Solid background mixed with a transparent one is not very nice looking. It would look much better if the solid background were also transparent. Anyone have a .css or other solution?

I am an 86 year old antediluvian who can't find a basic log-in account. As soon as I hit the Thunderbird file I find myself right into the Thunderbird mail account with a mini window asking that I confirm/change my 'mail.' password - what password? To the best of my knowledge I have never entered one. I must have changed it a hundred times now and none get accepted! Furthermore there does not appear to be any help advice on what to do next. And boy do I need help.

Firefox v69.0 Whenever I click on one of the matches returned from a search, or click on an embedded link, Firefox forever highlights that selection even though I don't want to be reminded months later that I had looked at that site. This is irksome because I can't ever get a clean slate for doing searches. Every similar search will yield a page full of highlighted links I may have used in the past on a topic that is only tangentially related. Also, since this highlighting persists independently of clearing history it entails a severe privacy leak. If anybody who is authorized to use my machine suspects that I may have an interest in, say, pizza dough, they need only do a search for pizza dough on my machine and any link I had ever selected in the past is highlighted, from which links it can be easily determined that I have both an interest in the topic at large and what aspect of the topic in particular appeals to me.

How do I disable this "feature", please?

Thunderbird has a throbber in the status bar that animates when it's doing something, like checking or sending mail.

Lately my throbber has started to animate for long periods for no apparent reason. (No active tasks are shown in the activity manager.) The animation is very distracting. I've been trying to determine whether the cause might be a misbehaving add-on or mail/news server, but it's slow going as the problem is not always reproducible.

In the meantime, is there any way I can disable the throbber altogether?

Just upgraded to Ffox 79.0.2. Instead of the opening page offered I would like to get immediately to my bookmarks (tried to add a picture here but the "Browse" button got me nowhere...) - not after 3 or 4 clicks and not just the "most recent" or "Top list" bookmarks. This was much better in the previous version. Is there a way adjust this?

Up until today, my address bar had a down arrow that I could click to open the menu and select the sites I wanted. Now it's different. Now there is no down arrow and when I click on the address bar it opens a menu with a bunch of different sites that never were in there before. In fact they're the first ten of my new tab sites, which DO NOT belong in my drop down menu, and I can't delete them from the menu. I want this back the way it was.

I don't want to have to reconfigure my settings every time the pictures are gone. It seems silly but it just looks wrong to me and I like seeing the pictures so that I know at a glance which top site is which. How can I fix this problem of my browser not displaying the images in the top sites correctly after closing the browser? Thank you!

I'd like to help you all at Mozilla in the evenings. I have just one issue with that. I have installed Linux Mint Cinnamon and made my theme dark and downloaded the add-on "Dark Background and Light Text". It is almost 100% wonderful. Redshift is activated too, in order to avoid the blue light, so that I will keep the rhythm of my sleep. I love it.

However. Every time I start a new window in Firefox or click the "+" my whole screen turns WHITE!!! This is VERY annoying. I want it to be dark, of course. This is also an issue if I am going to help you out at Mozilla in the evenings. Dark Background and Light Text does not work in your own forum. Why not integrate this add-on into Firefox?

In my opinion this is a very high priority issue, not only for this reason, but considering that we will all would save energy, batteries and the environment when using AMOLED technology together with Firefox, especially if it is very easy for the users to discover and to activate.

Hello!

     So this might be a very simple thing I've clearly skimmed over in the many times I've searched. Or perhaps I didn't enter the magic words into Google just that special way to get the help I desire...

     I'm playing with Addon and Extentions weighing the pro's and con's of different Addons serving the same relative purpose. It's pretty irritating the method I am currently using, downloading an Addon and then going in, and then disable the one I downloaded to grab the next to avoid bad results that can arise from overlapping Addons working on the same functional area. I wanted to know if there was a means in which I could disable the automatic enabling of Addons when I add them from the default Firefox site?

Hi!

I recently switched the options listed below to bring some sanity to the way Firefox handles selections in the URL bar.

  • browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll - true
  • browser.urlbar.doubleClickSelectsAll - false

Shortly after, I noticed that this change messes up the primary selection of the X window system. Now every time I open a new tab the previous tab's URL is copied to the primary selection, therefore overriding the information already there.

This behavior was observed in both the Tor Browser and Firefox ESR.

Is there another option I should've set along with the other two or is this an actual bug and I should open a bug report instead?

Thanks

Hello, Good day. I am using firefox in windows 10.

I have a peculiar issue of menu language automatically changing to arabic. I manually changed it many times but it changes back to Arabic often more than 10 time in the last 3 months.

Wondering if this is a bug or act of any malware or virus... or automatically changing based on region of use... but there is no option to choose / enable/ disable regional changing configuration.

Kindly advise how to prevent Firefox changing automatically to Arabic.

Thank you.

Suddenly Firefox is back to using language of country you are in (SIM also resident country) as default. Have tried all the old ways of getting preferred language and settings are correct. However, language does not change, remains as country language. Please fix as currently useless, using alternative now. Version 68.11.0 on Android 8

If I use Private Browsing language it's ok there. Cache is regularly cleared. All other browsers are using preferred language including Google and Chrome.

How to fix/work-around this now?

I tried setting webpage through the method I knew, i.e Go to Menu->Preferences->Home and set the Homepage and new windows settings to the URL you want.

But the bug is that, when I close Firefox and then open it fresh, it starts a blank page and does not load my required homepage. I have to click the home button.

When I already have Ff window open and I start a new window then it loads up my home page but, that redundant, since I could have opened the page I want in the first place.

Is there a solution to this?

Please help. Thank You.
