The ability to edit and customize the headers and footers for printing was one of my main reasons for switching from Chrome to Firefox. Now I can't find where to do this. I don't know if it was a recent update or what but I am using Windows 10 Home. Please help so I don't have to find a new browser.

Any solution to solve this problem would be greatly appreciated.

85.0.1 (64-bit) Linux

All the addon icons I had moved from the toolbar to the overflow menu a while ago have disappeared for some reason.

Only standard application icons via the customize window can be moved in/out of the overflow area.

Disabling and re-enabling the addons does nothing. The addon icons that are missing from the overflow (that I had put in there) are now all unavailable. I tried to uninstall/reinstall one addon as a test but that did not restore the addon icon. No addons are in the right click menu either.

Anyone else seeing this issue?

Why does FF forget 'always do this' settings from session to session?

whenever FF opens/saves a particular file type, i set the 'Do this from now on' button for that file type or when i download a link that passes to a handler application, i click the 'always do this' button on the little toast dropdown. i do this because, shocker, i ALWAYS WANT FIREFOX TO DO THAT. but when i close the session, either manually or via reboot, when i launch back into FF, it asks me all over again for the same things.

now this crap has been a problem since time immemorial (since FF 26, IIRC) and it's always broken. when the hell is this going to be fixed, now that we have ONE MORE dialog that stupidly asks us to set a pref it has no intention of keeping?

somebody is gong to say 'make a new profile' or 'refresh FF', but none of that has ever worked and it doesn't work now because i've literally just setup six brand new machines and ALL OF THEM have this behaviour, ranging from Firefox, Firefox Nightly, Firefox Focus, right to Firefox Developer Edition. all of them fresh, right out of the box.

if anyone knows how to make this bloody behaviour stick, please let me know, otherwise the dev team needs to just remove the ask... or fix it and make the blasted thing do its job. >:(

When I record screencasts, I don't want people to see what extensions I'm using. For one, it's distracting, for second, it's a privacy issue.

In chrome (iron, opera...) I can quickly drag and resize the extensions area so nothing is seen. Fast an easy.

Is there a way to do this in Firefox. I am open to extensions or keyboard shortcuts as well!

(Pinning to overflow menu is not a solution. It takes many clicks and a long time.)

Thank you for any help.

I set the colors of visited links and unvisited links in [Options]-[General]-[Language and Appearance]-[Color].

If you want to take effect, you need to select [All] in [Use the color you selected above to overwrite the color specified on the page]

In this way, all styles of all website pages: text color and background color are all changed.

Is there a way to only change the color of the link, while the text and background colors still use the web page's own; or specify that only the domain name pages in the list list use the specified color, and the website's own default color is used for those that are not explicitly specified?

Hi,

I have been working with the Style Editor from the Developer Tools. As you can see from the screenshot, there's a massive list of style sheets.

I'm looking for a certain style sheet to edit, however the list is not sorted alphabetically. So I don't know how to find the name of my style sheet other than just trying to scroll through the whole list to spot my specific sheet. This every time take hours for me to find what I'm looking for.

Is there any way to find a style sheet in that list faster than manually scrolling through the list? Something like Ctrl + F, or a way to sort that list alphabetically?

Thanks for your help!

Firefox updated on my work machine concurrent to a machine self-restart and VPN update. The VPN update bricked my access to shared drives for my work network so I assumed the issue lie somewhere with lack of internet access and inability to connect to said network. Now the VPN is up and running with normal file access restored, but all my FireFox info is gone. I see on my desktop a file called Old FireFox data and begin googling the recovery process. I generated a new profile in FireFox and copied over all files from the old profile to the new including key4.db and logins.json to no avail.

There are no passwords, no login info, no cookies, no bookmarks, nothing is left. Also, I cannot copy any of these files. I can only move them for some reason. I've tried to back up these files, but they are move-only somehow.

Any advice?
