About:config simply shows me a blank screen.

I need to customize a few settings and I presently cannot. This question marks this as answered but the answer is talking about a solution to the specific reason they were trying to access about:config, not why they cannot access it. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1373286

Others say to use the nightly build, which I don't want. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1302626

What's the deal? I've spent an hour or so now looking this up and haven't found anything.

We cannot get a google account because our landline neither sends nor receives text messages. We are in process of setting up and testing a cell phone, and would like to load Firefox for Android as the browser. We cannot download from google play because google demands to send a text-message "verification" code. We note, thankfully, that Mozilla does not (stupidly) do likewise to set up a Firefox account.

Currently using Firefox Nightly version 111.0a1 for Android now when trying to open a link in another app it always shows a popup to confirm.

This was not present in previous releases and I don't know if there is a way to prevent this popup as it makes it uncomfortable. Is there an option I may be missing to disable this feature? If not, could an option like this be introduced?

Thanks and regards

Hey all, I just updated Firefox on PC and the updater asked a couple questions. I chose "Visionary" as the answer to a question because it suited me the best out of all the options. However, this also changed the colors of my browser menu and toolbar to green. The thing is, while green is a fine color, I would never select it as "my" color for anything ever.

I've tried to change the color in about:preferences, but nothing I can find seems to work. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Hide Tab bar if there is only one tab

Hello!

I have been using this userChrome.css code to hide the tab bar if there is only one tab (on Windows):

tab:only-of-type, tab:only-of-type + #tabs-newtab-button {

   display: none !important;

}

#tabbrowser-tabs, #tabbrowser-arrowscrollbox, #tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-arrowscrollbox {
   min-height: 0 !important;

}

Since one of the recent Firefox updates, this code does no longer work. Maybe because there is a new element in the tab bar: A drop-down list at the right.

Any idea how to make the above code work again?

Recent update causes all pdf links to be opened in Firefox on Android with no option to download, and no setting to choose a default behavior. They're was another person who asked a similar question and was told to use the "Share" option and then "Save as PDF" - this doesn't work. Another advise given was long-pressing on the PDF link and choosing to save target - it won't work when I am pasting the pdf link into the address bar, which is how I do it primarily. I'm stuck using the Open in External App, which opens the pdf in Google drive, then having the option of saving the file. So many unnecessary steps. Please fix.

In the recent update, there is a new feature which allowed people to view pdf directly in the browser rather than downloading it. Ever since this was implemented, I am not able to download any pdf, instead it keeps opening up the pdf in another tab which is not what I'm trying to do. Is there a way to fix this?

I'm a physical keyboard user for Android and find it impossible to use Firefox, there doesn't seem to be any documentation on simple keyboard shortcuts for access the addressbar or menubar, getting to search in the page, or access fine-grained tools for navigation like there is on the desktop version.

Where are these features documented? The Android Talkback feature doesn't cut it for me.

App Switching Always Opens New Tabs | SO Obnoxious

While using Mozilla Firefox browser on my iPad Pro, I often switch back and forth to different apps throughout my workday. The keyboard command shortcut I use is CMD+Tab to switch to different application windows.

The problem that I have is that every time I switch from a different application, BACK to Mozilla Firefox, instead of staying on the website/tab that I was on previously, it opens up a brand new tab. And I have to close the new tab out every single time just to back to the page I wanted to be at before.

In the settings, I can’t for the life of me figure out how to STOP the app from launching a new tab every single time I simply switch back to the application. It’s the most irritating function to have to constantly close out new tab windows.

I originally was able to create the home page shortcut to Piped with Chrome, but the shortcut launched Chrome, even though Firefox is my default browser?

Piped [https://piped.kavin.rocks/https://pip.../|Piped]

So I deleted the shortcut. Now, Chrome no longer even offers me the option to "Add to Home Screen" from the Piped page, but it still does for other sites. Within Chrome, It now offers me the option to open the page in Firefox, even if I make Chrome the default browser.

How can I get a shortcut to Piped on my home page that will open in Firefox?

I'm on the latest version of Firefox, 106.1, and I'm missing the Firefox View button on my MacBook Pro 13". It is showing on my Mac Mini M1, and both are logged in and syncing properly using my Firefox account.

When I type in about:firefoxview on my MacBook Pro in the URL bar, I see the page but noticed it says "New colorways are on the way" on the right. On my Mac Mini, I see the "Independent Voices" text and an option to "Try colorways".

Bug? Some weird setting on my MacBook? Both are running macOS Monterey, 12.6.

Can not save images from Google Images, by holding down on the image, and then tapping save image. The menu simply does not pop-up. Holding down on the image results in selection of the image description below. Sometimes you can not save it form the website either, but that is because of website configuration and you can not save it on other browsers, but on other browsers you can save from Google Images by holding down on an image, so it is only the issue of Firefox and not the Google Images website. This issue seems to be present for over 2 years based on online feedback, and it is still not fixed.
