As you can see in the attached image of my old Overflow Menu, I had it customized with many buttons/extensions I often accessed throughout each day.

With the advent of FF ver 109, this functional flexibility has been completely lost. Now, there's no way to choose what buttons and to sort them in the Overflow Menu. In my view, an egregious loss of convenience and efficiency.

Please, bring back the full functionality of the previous Overflow Menu!!!

So this crazy new update has broken my Firefox in these ways:

1. All my bookmarks on my bookmarks bar have been deleted. 2. I can't drag any new links to the bookmarks bar 3. Overflow menu for apps is empty and will only let me drag Firefox defaults to it such as settings. Dragging apps to it is impossible. It "is" possible to pin items by using the Chrome puzzle piece..

Firefox: 109.0 OS: Windows 10 Pro

Using troubleshooting mode has no effect.

Hi,

Here is the problem. The extensions that are visible in the top bar work as planned,but the ones that got minimized into a small menu are greyed out and dont respnt to selecting. I cant place them into visible part.

When i set shortcuts for them they work, but all the new ones end up in that manu and are unavailable.

Any ideas? Thank you in advance,

Marko

I reset the Windows OS on my PC. When I reinstalled Firefox and synced it, the extensions automatically returned but their icons were missing from the address bar.

Worse they only work if I click the extension drop-down and specifically the extension. They used to be aware of the website and automatically do their thing. E.g. the NordPass symbol previously appeared next to passwords and I could click to have the password automatically filled in. Now I have to select the NordPass extension and copy the items one by one into the form. Ditto for Grammerly

And still worse the setting was synced to my laptop.

Without my doing anything, firefox has decided to download pdf files in its own html. I have changed the default to adobe rather than ask. When I open the downloaded file in adobe it comes down as an adobe file, I tell it to save as an adobe pdf, but it appears in file manager and then opens in firefox html. Worse, it, whatever it is, has gone into file manager and changed adobe pdf files, some of which have been sitting on my hard drive for some years, into firefox html files. How do I rectify this please?

Issues with extension when "Always use private browsing mode" is activated

This is what my environment looks like: I am using Firefox (version 109.0) on Ubuntu (version 22.04.1). I installed the 1password extension for Firefox (version 2.5.1). I have allowed the 1Password extension to "Run in Private Windows" (from the Firefox Add-ons Manager).

Description of my issue: In Firefox, there is a Privacy&Security setting that allows you to "Always use private browsing mode". When this setting is enabled, the 1Password extension does not work at all (even if I allowed it to run in private windows). That is, every time I click on the 1Password icon in my browser, an empty browser tab shows up, and nothing more. Instead, if I disable that setting, the extension works correctly.

Hi there. I use Firefox in macOS, and I always have multiple windows in different Desktops.

As you know, Desktops in mac are numbered, and each App in the Dock has the option "Assign to" a particular Desktop number or Desktops in Display X. But that is too limiting, because all windows appear in the same Desktop. I'd like an option or Extension in Firefox that allows me to set each Firefox window to a particular Desktop number, so that I don't have to re-organize all my windows every time I restart Firefox.

Does anyone know if there is anything like that?

Using online recommendations I was able to force the general theme to white, however individual segments of the FF UI still retain black (see the images). I want to whiten them too. I saw a heap of color related settings in about:config. I set one of them, layout.css.prefers-color-scheme.content-override, to 1 but that had no effect on the appearance of the said elements.

I am often switching office and change my system default printer always first when I am in a new place. I learned from the community here that the right thing to do for having Firefox/Thunderbird follow this choice is set print_printer to 'default'. The problem is that this does only work for a while. As soon as I use the selection dropdown in the printing dialog (e.g. to exceptionally select the PDF printer) it will overwrite 'default' by that printer. The consequence is that from that time on I have to manually select the printer or got to the config editor again to set 'default'. Is there any simple solution I overlooked?

If not can you tell me how I can make a feature request? A simple solution would be to include something like 'System Default' in the dropdown list in the printing dialog. Although for my taste, it would be better to have the selection in the printer dialog only temporary and return to the previous printer selection for the next printing.
