Hi I am looking for a way to disable the Firefox Welcome Page on first run, via script, or registry or config file, I have it coming up on over 1000 Windows 10 pc's running Firefox 64 bit 78.02

I have tried many things and nothing I have done seems to suppress the welcome page.

I tried setting all to blank and none have worked

startup.homepage_welcome_url

startup.homepage_welcome_url.additional

startup.homepage_override_url

Also I have tried in the Policies.json file the following. The welcome page still comes up.

{

   "policies": {
       "OverrideFirstRunPage": "",
       "OverridePostUpdatePage": ""
   }

}

Today, July 8, 2020, I am unable to use Firefox to login to my NFCU account. Called the Credit Union and it is not on their end. Log in for CU works on Chrome, Internet Explorer and Bing. Error message is: - - - Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://signon.navyfederal.org/siteminderagent/forms/nfcu.fcc" on this server.

Reference #18.3c09c617.1594220052.49fad8a3 - - - This login method has worked for over a decade on Firefox and most recently as June 30, 2020. Now it no longer accepts the login page as valid. I have tried clearing the cache/history/cookies - no result.

Earlier this morning, Chrome gave me the same message, but it is now working with the Credit Union login. Firefox is the browser I use most and is my preferred browser. I do not want to use Bing for banking. Please fix this issue.

Thanks.

I use openbox as my windowmanager with NO desktop environment on Archlinux.

I want to hide the titlebar (border) but when using openbox this option is NOT SHOWN. It is shown when i use another Desktop Environment like xfce4 or Gnome.

In the past i found out that a variable like DESKTOP_ENVIRONMENT, DE or XDG_SESSION_DESKTOP could be set with the value of another Desktop Environment to mislead Firefox.

However, i can't find the right variable any more and i have been googling and googling for days :-(

Please help, i like openbox & firefox (without titlebar)

I just got a new computer and i thought this problem would go away, but it is still present. It is becoming EXTREMELY frustrating. I love Firefox and have used it for a long time but this issue is making it very difficult.

Since updating to 78.0 I cannot download pdf files from magazinelib.com. I can do so on Microsoft Edge and on Android, but not Firefox. I get the save/open/etc. popup; no matter which I click the file simply cycles and never downloads. Other sites seem unaffected.

A lot of folks are having issues with the new URL bar.

My biggest issue with the new URL is the way that URL bar text turns light blue rather than to normal way that selected text is shown, in negative (white on blue), because I often want to select part of the URL and the light blue makes it difficult to see what I have selected. I am 55 and my eyesight is not what it used to be.

jscher2000 kindly recommended adding the following to userchrome.css here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283831?page=3#answer-1331668 as follows

  1. urlbar {
 --lwt-toolbar-field-highlight: Highlight;
 --lwt-toolbar-field-highlight-text: HighlightText;

}

But this css does not seem to work for me.

I have not touched the Firefox theme, so I guess I am using the default theme, but I have added the multi-row tabs css from MrOtherGuy https://github.com/MrOtherGuy/firefox-csshacks/tree/master/chrome/multi-row_tabs.css but the multi-row tab css does not seem to mention "toolbar" so I can't see that they would get in each other's way.

I would also like to turn off the automatic selection of the whole url but that may not be possible.

Hello everyone,

Thanks for taking the time to help me!

Today my Firefox's update to 78 bugged and forced me to reinstall it. After completing the new installation, I was asked to connect on my Firefox's account. Unfortunatly, I couldn't remember at all my password which I didn't type for years and was forced to reinitialize it, leading to a total erase of my account's datas : saved password, markbooks etc.

I would like to know if, in the case the erased datas are temporary saved (for emergencies maybe), if it would be possible to restore my old ones or download and import them, as I terribly need them.

I'm looking forward a happy ending, hopefully.

Yours

There is a website that I used today and discovered that it does not display correctly on Firefox although it displays correctly on Edge and Chrome.

I have attached screenshots of the webpage on all 3 browsers and you can see that the there are 2 ticks missing from the Firefox screen where the text says Available in-store at Karingal and at Pick up Avaliable.

I tried running Firefox in Safe Mode but it still did not show this screen correctly.

I am running Firefox for Desktop version 78.0.2 (64-bit).

Any suggestions on what is causing this and a solution would be helpful.

Thanks.

Hi --

As of the latest version of Firefox (v78.0.2 x64), all new tabs open at the end of the list of current tabs. If I only had a few tabs open, that MIGHT be okay, but since I keep many open, it's incredibly annoying. All I want is to open a new tab and have it appear to the right of the current tab. So far...

  • I've tried setting "browser.tabs.insertAfterCurrent" to true, with no effect.
  • I've tried the add-on "Always Right", with no effect.

Since I've noticed this behavior in many previous versions of FF, I doubt that uninstall/reinstall will address the problem, so I didn't try.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance to all!

Earlier it was removed using style in userChrome.css file - " #PopupAutoCompleteRichResult richlistitem:first-of-type[actiontype="visiturl"] ", after update to 78.3 esr version this isn't working. I tried with deleted /home/.mozila folder (new profile) and with menu home ->top sites and search suggestions switched off (and also with and without userChrome.css file) so this is isn't the case.

I can't get spellcheck to work. I'm using Firefox on a Mac. This is true even when using a box with multiple lines.

I have ticked the box in preferences that says Check your spelling as you type. I have a language chosen - English (United Kingdom). I tried installing a different dictionary in Add-ons, but it made no difference.

I've gone into about:config and adjusted the settings in layout.spellcheckDefault and checked services.sync.prefs.sync.layout.spellcheckDefault, which made no difference.

I've read posts that say to right click and look at the dictionaries, but this doesn't work for me (could be because I'm using a Mac). Same with pressing Control.

Any thoughts?

Hi All

some pages like this one are wide enough to have a horizontal left/right scroll bar.

https://trello.com/b/3OtE8BCR/brizy-wordpress-public-roadmap

If I'm lucky, when I want scroll left or right, the cursor is on a piece of HTML where it can move when I use the left or right arrow keys. However often, the cursor isn't available or the right place.

Is there a key or key combo where I can shift the web page left or right in the FF window? I often find it difficult to use the horizontal scrollbar with the mouse.

I want to transfer the profile from an old PC running Windows 7 to a new PC running Windows 10. I've copied the old profile to a USB stick. After much searching I've found the profile created by the new installation, but it seems to appear in two folders: AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles, and AppData/Local/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles. Should I simply substitute the old profile for both instances of the new profile? NB This message is posted from a different platform (Mac) Thanks
