A pop-up message is not necessary, irritating and tiresome.

The Dashlane website indicates that Dashlane Password Manager is compatible with Firefox Browser but I am unable to find it in the extension list. Without Dashlane Firefox is useless to me since I have used it for years in Chrome and do not wish to attempt to import that information into another extension. Anyone know why it is missing?

Hi, I use the dark reader add on which saves my eyes from the burning white pages of the internet. Unfortunately, firefox flashes white before loading new pages. How can this be stopped?

To reproduce, enable the dark reader add on. Go to duckduckgo in a new tab, do a search for anything and you'll see the screen flash white before loading results.

I was using this solution which was working perfectly, but it doesn't work anymore (after a recent refresh of firefox):

userChrome.css


@-moz-document url(chrome://browser/content/browser.xul) {

  #main-window,
  browser[type="content-primary"],
  browser[type="content"],
  tabbrowser#content,
  #content,
  browser[type="content"] > html
  {
     background: #323234 !important;
  }

}


userContent.css


@charset "utf-8"; /* CSS Document */

@-moz-document url("about:newtab") { body { background-color: #011326 !important;} }

@-moz-document url(chrome://browser/content/browser.xul) { browser[type="content-primary"] {background: #011326 !important} }


Any ideas?

I am having a problem where suddenly Firefox won't remember that I told it to run flash on a website. There was previously the option to remember that decision and now that's gone today for no reason. Removing that option is why I quit using Chrome when the great corporate beast decided for me that I shouldn't be able to conveniently use flash any more because they didn't like it. Is this the same thing happening here or is this a bug?

All downloads fail instantly even after uninstalling, deleting, and purging data on my computer. I've gone through safe mode, disabeling any and all programs related to antivirus and connection (PIA and Malwarebytes) and not a single file will even start to dowload. They fail and end up as corrupted clutter in my Download folder.

PS: The only way I was able to reinstall was via Chrome. Its only a problem on Firefox.

I'm trying to delete cache in Fireforx 69.0.1 running Windows 10. So, I go to privacy settings, clear date, and clear web content. When I clear, Cookies and Site Data is cleared. But Cached Web Content (1.5 MB) persists. I can't clear the cache.

My 3 other computers with FF and Win10 all clear cache to "0".

I had this problem with sites like facebook, twitter and news sites that have lots of graphics/videos. The recommended fixes didnt. Finally I went to the NVIDIA control panel, MANAGE 3D SETTINGS, and there is a list of apps, I noticed the program Mozilla Firefox was set to use Integrated Graphics. I changed the drop down to choose High Performance Nvidia Processor.

That's it. After that FF doesnt show the error any more. I dont know why or how it had been set to integrated graphics, and I expect that Mozilla was trying to use the Nvidia processor and was being blocked as a result. I havent seen this as a solution anywhere either so I think it is important to get the word out.

IE has an option of opening an FTP site as a window in file explorer. Then you can drag and drop multiple files to the computer easily. Right now there is no easy way to get multiple files from an FTP site using firefox that I can find. Is it possible? If not, this would be a nice feature to add to a future version.

I work with HTML website themes daily. I use the firefox browser for all of my design work and I have recently noticed that firefox does not show web icons such as font awesome or any other web icons. The web icons are properly coded into the theme and they show up fine in all other browsers (chrome, edge, explorer, safari).

I did some research on it and I did find this: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/CORS but I don't know if that has anything at all to do with it or not.

If the problem is due to Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) then how would I fix that issue as the fonts are being served directly from the theme files?

Thank you

How can I completely remove the bar above the URL bar? I don't need to see horizontal tabs or the Close/Minimize/Restore buttons.

I can close/minimize/restore by right-clicking the Firefox box on my Linux Mint's bottom panel.


My userChrome.css looks like this:

/* Hide horizontal tabs at the top of the window */
#tabbrowser-tabs {
  visibility: collapse !important;
}

#titlebar {
  visibility: collapse;
}


#tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: hidden !important; }
tab { display: none !important; }

#sidebar-header {

Prior to upgrading to FF 69.0 I had my chrome file configured to hide icons in my bookmark toolbar. With the update to FF 69.0, the icons have reappeared. How do I fix this again? Previously I had utilized this method:

"Yes, you can paste the full code posted above including the @namespace line. The :not([container]) selector means that you still have the folder icons with bookmarks folders. If you want to hide the icons for folders as well then leave out this selector."

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

#personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item .toolbarbutton-icon {
 display:none!important;
