FF92.0, Big Sur. I really just noticed that the scroll bar on the right hand side disappears rather quickly (in just a second or two). Is there some way to make it hang around? Really pretty annoying having to make it show up by manually scrolling with a mouse wheel.

Now, in the old Firefox, you used to be able to select "Email Link" to send a URL to someone by e-mail in your favorite e-mail client. I used to do that routinely, sending links via Thunderbird. I'm now using FF93.0, and all I see is "Share", which, when you point it to "Mail" it dumps you in Chrome. Now, in my FF prefs, I have specified Content Type->mailto->Use Thunderbird, so why it's dumping me in Chrome makes no sense.

How do I use Firefox to share a URL in Thunderbird like I used to be able to do?

How to have uninterruptible full screen

There are some browser games that are best played full screen, but I can't seem to find a way to keep the "helpful" menu from popping up over my game when the mouse hits the top edge of the screen. The best I can do is not play full screen, and detach the tab of my game to minimize the amount of tabs visible (and clickable) but there are still these "landmines" on the screen that actively sabotage playing the game without having the handicap of firefox taking over and messing with the screen.

Is there any way to completely disable the popups from a fullscreen mode, show no toolbars, tabs, or anything else (except when exiting fullscreen mode via the keyboard.) I want the mouse to have no interaction with changing the display except for the game itself.

Playing http://slither.io is a good example of what I'm talking about.

Thanks!

I'm not sure where to post this since it isn't a question.

I normally keep a lot of tabs open on mobile Firefox, and recently updated to a new version which changed the design of the browser drastically. One thing it changed is the open tab viewer, which now opens from a window at the bottom of the screen. The problem is that when you start to scroll your finger down (so that you can view older tabs higher up) it pulls the whole tab viewer down and away. It is so annoying to use and has no real way to open scroll immediately.

The closest thing I have found to a solution is opening the tab viewer, scrolling up (so the page goes down) so it bumps against the bottom of the page, then scroll down only while the scroll is visible. An easy solution for this is to make it require 2 fingers to close the tab viewer while over the tabs, or 1 finger when on the notch at the top.

I, at one time, could pin a page to the new tabs screen where it would pin an icon that I could click on and immediately access that web page. I want to pin additional pages to that screen but I don't know how. I can't remember what I did to do it. I've attached a snippet of a screenshot circling the pins to give more insight into what I'm referring to.

If there are limitations or requirements, I would appreciate anyone advising of what they are. If you can guide me to the appropriate information or provide the information, any help would be appreciated!

I've Googled this a few different ways and the results don't seem to be up to date, because I'm not seeing what I should be.

I'm using Firefox on Android, and I want to download a page to view offline, but can't see how. Google results tell me to go to the menu to find the option, which must refer to the three dots in the top right, but it's not there. I'm attaching a pic of what mine looks like for reference.

Thanks in advance for the help.

I have two computers (say A and B). I want to move the entire Bookmark toolbar from A to a folder in the Bookmark toolbar on B. This would allow me to selectively move folders and bookmarks from the A Bookmark toolbar upload to the toolbar on B. So far I cannot get the Import or Restore to upload to a single empty folder on the B bookmark toolbar.

I have tried to upload previously exported Html and Json files from A to a specific empty folder on B's bookmark tool bar but either the file overwrites the entire toolbar on B or nothing appears to happen.

I thought that by selecting a folder in the "Manage Bookmark" dialog box that the subsequent upload of either the Html or Json files would all go there but it does not appear to work.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I recently switched to a UK keyboard layout (Logitech MX keys with UK layout), from a US international layout. I changed the system settings to use the proper input and it works like a charm on every program I have, except the browser. Even if I have changed Firefox's main language as "English (UK)" and restarted it, it doesn't recognize sequences such as "CTRL + `" follwed by a vocal. Is there any known solution to this issue?

Hi, I opened Firefox this morning and found Amazon pinned among my top sites. Weirdly enough, I can't unpin it or dismiss it - it just stays there whatever I do (in contrast to other pinned sites). It's not a huge problem, but I have some ethical issues with Amazon, so the last thing I want to see every time I open my browser is their logo. I also wonder how did it get there in the first place (I sometimes do browse the site to get an idea what are the prices of various products, but not too often and I'm not sure if there is a way to pin it by accident at all). Does anyone have the same problem?
