Hi, I am setting up a laptop for my wife to replace her old one. I have installed Firefox and found that although the main body text is the correct size, the text on the toolbars is very small compared to her old one. How can I increase the toolbar font size without altering the main body. Thank you, Andrew

Previous version of Firefox beta for Android I was able to go to the list of browser tabs, press and hold a tab to then drag the tab to change its position in the list of open tabs. This feature seems to have either disappeared (if so, a reason for me to delete Firefox Preview and switch to a new browser) or it's still possible but is completely unclear how to do it now.

After installing Firefox 84.0 (Mac), I no longer see the circular "reload page" tool on the address bar. Is this something I did, or has it really gone away? If it's gone, how do I force a page reload? If I screwed something up, any idea how I can unscrew it ;) ?

I know this is an obscure question but it would save time typing it all in each time.

I would like to create a windows shortcut to launch the profile manager like so:

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe -profilemanager" - but it says "the name specified in the target box is not valid. Make sure the filename and path are correct." It works fine without the -profilemanager part.

Maybe it would have to be a batch file I'm not sure.

I'd like it if Firefox would automatically convert webp images to jpg or png files instead of the opposite... stop trying to save png or jpg files as webp... and stop serving me webp images when it is optional. I understand there are websites that ONLY display webp format images, but I am also aware that jpg and png files exist on many of these websites as well. I do not want to disable the ability to display webp in the browser, but I want to turn off whatever option is currently turned on.

I'd like to go back to being able to right click, Save Image As > and end up saving a png or jpg. There have been several websites over the last few weeks that I have visited, and even if the image in the URL is named jpg or png, Firefox tries to save it as a webp. This is complicating my image saving process. I am using the Add-on named "Save webP as PNG or JPEG" which works, but slows down my saving process considerably. The Add-on does not remember the last folder I saved an image to, and adds several additional clicks to what used to be a simple process.

Is there a way in about:config to prevent Firefox from putting webp as the default file format in the Save Image As dialog box?

Suggesting that I use Internet Explorer or Edge is crazy. I'm not changing browsers.

You can demo this annoyance by trying to save this image, which is obviously supposed to be a jpg: https://media.entertainmentearth.com/assets/images/7c23e8c9a6014c57aa8f5d3e281b3834lg.jpg

I have been using Firefox for ages now, and collected a rather large number of bookmarks (>15,000) As far as I know such a number poses some issues, for instance I tried several times to use Sync but was never able to use it.

Since I am using two different machines, I tend to save my bookmarks only on the main one. When I am working on the laptop I never save bookmarks but I message them to myself (never been able to save them on my main machine, sigh) and every once in a while I "restore" bookmarks from the backup set of the main machine on the laptop. It always takes a while and oftentimes it feels like the process hangs, but so far I managed.

Today I started wondering again if there's a less frustrating and more efficient way to handle this. The question I started asking myself was: could I use the same FF profile from the laptop & the main machine? Say by saving it in the cloud?

Thanks for any hint or suggestion!

When I use Firefox on the external monitor, I set the zoom level to 150%. When I leave home a take my laptop with me, I set the zoom level to 100% to use with a smaller screen.

I want to automate setting the zoom level.

Is there a way to programmatically set the zoom level from a script? Does Firefox expose such an API / command-line tool?

Thanks!

Is there some option that makes the search results in History more user friendly so as to show dates?
