Same as this question, but the answer is outdated: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/839240

Is there a way to do this in the about:config page?

There is an answer about holding `Alt`, but that is a workaround.

Is there a way to fully edit a .pdf file in the new Firefox browser? I know how to annotate, but I don't see any way to copy and/or paste. This originally came up when I wanted to copy one sentence from of an entire document. Thank you.

Hail all:

I have my settings set to "absolute" Strict. this option greys out to add exceptions. But it blocks sometimes safe sites as well.

How can I run strict, and still be able to add certain websites, thus overcome the greyed out Add Exception Button?

Thank you.

Greetings, all:

I have made a feedback few times for this forum here, to have a Stay Signed In option.

Every so many minutes, I get to be signed out, most probably, as a security measure. This then requires me to log in each time, which is not all too bad, but still a bit annoying.

A "Stay Logged In" or "Keep Me Logged In" option is a normal thing on nigh all sites, it would be lovely to have it here as well?

Thoughts?

Kindest regards: Ben

Hi, I use Cambridgeone.org materials to teach English online. Never had a problem. Taught last Thursday using Firefox 110.0.1 and digital texbook on Cambridgeone website.

Installed update to Firebox 111.0.1 the next morning. Now the full teacher's toolbar on the textbook doesn't load. (see image) It does on my desktop app (see image).

What can I do? Have cleared all caches, run disk cleanup, even disabled Privacy Badger without effect.

When Firefox is running and I lock the screen and unlock it again, the gui seems to be somehow broken. On the picture attached one can see a graphical issue (black frame) on the right side of the browser when resizing the window. When I try to make it smaller starting from the left, the window disappears inside the black frame on the right side. There are also issues regarding the mouse. It is not possible to see which part of the text is already selected when pressing and holding the left mouse button during text selection (no orange highlighting of the text). When I release the left button the text is selected.

This is the second PC with Ubuntu 22.04 where this happens. Both PCs were upgraded from Ubuntu 20.04, so maybe it has to do something with that.

I've used Firefox for years on my iMac with its 5K display. The UI was fine. Today I had to delete and then re-install Firefox because the program had started crashing repeatedly. I lost a lot of bookmarks & tabs. Upon opening the new install, I saw that Firefox now shows a miniaturized UI that is very difficult to read. I refer to the UI elements (tabs, bookmarks bar, URL/search field), not the web pages themselves. As part of the installation, I went through all the settings, and I didn't see any controls for the sizes of UI elements. So I searched the internet and found many reports of similar problems over many years. I tried a few suggested changes to about:config settings. Nothing has worked. I am exasperated. What am I missing? Can anyone help?

I have been using Sync to keep my data backed up for the last 3 months. I got a new computer and logged in expecting Sync would bring my data in. To my surprise, NOTHING! All my open tabs, all my book marks, history, saved passwords... GONE!

And I can't go to the old computer because it has been turned in.

Where is my data?

Firefox prevented this page from loading in this way because the page has a content security policy that disallows it." at the address: about:accounts?action=signin&entrypoint=preferences

I've been having an issue with Youtube lately where whenever I'm logged into my Youtube account and have subtitles on, it won't ever show them. I haven't changed these settings at all recently, so I'm not sure what's causing it. For some reason, this is a non-issue when I'm logged out of my account as the subtitles automatically work when I'm not signed in. So I know it isn't an issue of there being no subtitles option for the videos I'm watching.

Is there some way to fix this?

You don't have permission to access "http://www.easyjet.com/en/buy/flights?" on this server. Reference #18.a2051702.1680270222.a72aa67

How do I give permission to allow the search to go ahead? It's pretty annoying to come out of Firefox and use Safari where this doesn't happen. Thanks

This has happened before. I have not imported any bookmarks into Firefox from other browsers -- it is my default browser and imports all go the other direction (i.e. 'exports'). But I have this folder under the Bookmarks Toolbar called 'Imported from Firefox.' In the first place, I don't really understand why it exists. In the second, I've discovered that suddenly, new bookmarks I create go there instead of to he folders in the main bookmark list, which is incredibly confusing and irritating. I want the thing gone, or AT LEAST for new bookmarks to be posted to the proper locations! There is an incredible amount of duplication between that folder set and the main folder set, and a bunch of really old stuff is being retained. Manually going through that mess would be hours of work. Why is it there, if I don't import bookmarks to Firefox, and how do I get rid of it and point new bookmarks at the proper folder?
