I am writing an extension based on NewTab Override. I would like to know if there is a way to set the browser address bar to have no text when focused, and if so how to do that. So far I am using the code from NewTab Override that does: ``` browser.tabs.update(tabId, { url : url, loadReplace : true }, () => {}); ``` But I don't know any function or property to set for the address bar. I looked in the developer page for Mozilla Firefox but couldn't find anything.

Yesterday I updated Big Sur (11.2.2). When I started up Firefox I got a message indicating that I had to update my version of Firefox. I clicked on the link and it sent me to Apple and Apple said it was only supporting IOS. I never could find a link to get the latest version for MACOSX as it seemed that the three places I tried were for IOS. What/where is the URL for MACOSX ? According to FIREFOX I am up to date (86.0) 64 bit

Everything was fine till today. Smarkets website looks like crap and only this one. What's interesting, it looks all right when I untick allow pages to use their own fonts button. That's strange. Unfortunately, the rest of website do not look good. I cannot use Smarkets anymore as this is just unreadable. Please compare the same website open i FF and Chrome.

So I love Firefox but recently have a serious issue. my homepage is google.com. it goes there but when i type in my search it redirects to yahoo. I looked up the problem on my phone and it gave me instructions to go into the firefox add-ons and delete the add-ons. However when i click add on it doesn't come up. I cannot get into my add ons. To sum it up, my google is redirected to yahoo even though my default search engine is google, and i cannot get into my add-on tab to delete a possible malicious add-on.

Do you really want to use HTML Gmail?

You're about to use a version of Gmail designed for slower connections and legacy browsers. To get all of Gmail's features, including inbox categories, images and quick actions, please use the latest version of Gmail (recommended).

Take me to latest Gmail

I recently upgraded from a Dell XPS laptop to a Dell XPS Inspiron laptop and had my old laptop cloned to the new one. There's been only one change noted when using the new laptop -- whenever I have Firefox open, and want to print the page displayed, the File menu no longer offers the option "Print Preview", which I used all the time on my old laptop. Any idea why it's disappeared, and how to get it back? Thanks.

Hello. I hope someone can help me. For the last 3 or 4 weeks the Walmart grocery site is not working right. For anyone familiar you know that there is a little heart you click on for your favorites, and on the right side of the page is your items currently in your shopping cart. Ok, neither of those is working in Firefox right now. It is working fine in Opera but not Firefox which is my preferred browser. (I was using Opera for a while and one of their updates caused the same issue, they saw it about a week later and it works there now.) I have attempted several restarts with addons disabled. As far as I can remember the only thing that I have changed in about:config was "browser.urlbar.update1" (that has been changed for a long time) ...I went in and changed it back but that made no difference. Does anyone have any ideas? I really dislike having to open a separate browser for 1 site. I have attached a picture showing what I am referring to. Thank you in advance Kathy

I know that flag emojis are basically not rendered on Windows platforms. A two-letter-combination is shown instead (e.g. DE for Germany), which is a known issue. Since a few months however, Firefox started to show flag emojis. I assumed that Firefox itself did show the flag emoji independently from Windows (as opposed to Chrome, which never did show flag emojis on Windows). Since a few days however, Firefox stopped showing flag emojis and shows the two-letter-combination again.

Why does Firefox not show flag emojis anymore?

Hello!

I’ve been having quite strange problem with Firefox for a few months since version 80.X on clean Windows 10 (reinstalled from scratch after secure erase; the latest 20H2 version with all updates installed). It’s worth to mention that I’ve been using Firefox like 15 years and never had an issue like this before.

Firefox just fills up system drive completely (50+GB to 0 bytes remaining) few times a day under active usage. It happens randomly and I can’t identify the reason. I also can’t find any actual files saved on disk because it seems to be related to NTFS cache. I’ve tried disabling the following settings with no success:

browser.cache.disk.enable cached-web-content_cached-web-content browser.cache.memory.enable browser.cache.disk.smart_size.enabled

And couldn’t find any solution unfortunately. I usually have 2 windows opened ("common" and private) with 10 to 30 tabs each which is not much at all for i7/16GB I believe. This problem is extremely annoying and seriously affects SSD life so I'd really appreciate if someone would help me to resolve it. Thanks in advance!

Suddenly, my favorites are displayed one the main toolbar, and the favorites toolbar remains empty. Very annoying as the main toolbar does not leave much spaces for favorites. The favorites toolbar remains stubbornly empty, and I do not find any way to correct this strange behaviour.
