Greetings all, Is there a way to change the margins of viewed markdown files by going into, for example, about:config or another way? Would this or some other commands allow me to change the left and right margins?

I would like to change (widen primarily) the margins of markdown files when I view them on my Firefox browser. I use a lot of Markdown, for writing, scientific work (RMarkdown), and note-taking. I am currently using a Markdown text editor (Abricotine, not that this should matter) that simply calls up Firefox and sends the text/markdown to the screen. However, when I view the .md files the margins seem very small to me.

Cheers,

Ive been having a problem for a few months now where whenever I restart firefox, if I had the password manager enabled it would disable itself. I can only assume that an outside program is causing this but I am unable to locate which one. I have uninstalled all password manager applications off of my computer, but am still having this issue. Is there any way I could find what program is causing this to happen?

At the top of the Firefox Internet browser are the 2 bars for the function keys and the bookmarks or folders. The background color is light gray as standard and often differs little from the background colors of the Internet pages called up. From my point of view, it would be good if you could choose the background color of these Firefox bars yourself.

Hello,

I am using Firefox 85.0 on OSX 10.14.6. Both Firefox Dev Tools and OSX are set to Dark Mode. However the menubar on the Developer Tools pop-out window (separate window view) is showing light grey. Please see attached image which shows the menu bar colour.

Is there any way I can change this to match the dark theme of my system?

This may seem petty, but I use the pop-out console a lot in my workflow and the bright coloured bar is bothering me! I have just switched over from Chrome which correctly matches the menubar to the system theme.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Folks,

I've recently started working with a Mac (Catalina) and found an oddity that only seems to apply to Firefox. I set up keyboard shortcuts for moving windows between my macbook display and an external monitor using the in-built keyboard options to add shortcuts.

These target the Window>Move to [DISPLAY NAME] menu entries at the top of the screen. For some reason Firefox windows don't have this menu entry and therefore my shortcuts don't move Firefox windows between my screens.

I've included a couple screenshots to demonstrate. It's not a huge deal but I wonder if it's an issue with my machine or just a quirk of Firefox?

Hey firefox community,

I have an issue where certain add-ons are not loading their icons (greyed out), and after a computer shutdown, or simply closing the window, the icons don't seem to stay in the overflow menu (or the place where you can store addons if you don't want them on the toolbar or the overflow menu). my only option to be able to use the extension is to "re-enable" the extension from the add-on menu.

I've read somewhere on a support thread that it may have something to do with adblockers, and although I do have adguard, I'm not 100% sure if that's the issue, as I tried disabling adguard when loading firefox, and I seemed to only be able to load the add-ons correctly once, but not again (to be fair, not a lot of testing went into this hypothesis or test).

if there is some kinda issue with adguard, I would love to know what I need to do to solve this issue, and if its something else, I would also love to know what else I would need to do, short of a clean install of firefox or something similar, as I have a few add-ons with custom settings, and resetting all of that would be a pain to redo.

thanks for your help.

PS, any additional info needed can be sent over, just may take some time

Hi,

Somehow while searching for this solution on the web. I got my answer in a foreign Firefox. The answers posted to this solution are in English but all the other buttons are according to Goggle translate are in Lithuanian. How can I see this whole page in English?

I was able to answer a couple of people but if I search in my USA profile, none my posted questions or answers include the ones from the Lithuanian Firefox.  Just curious if I could see them here somehow.

I am unable to access video and other content from within an e-mail from what I know are reputable sources (e.g. Stansberry Research and the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS)). When I click on the access key in the e-mail I either get a page saying I cannot access the desired content page or I get nothing. In either case my only option is to exit the attempt to access that specific content. Is this a problem with Firefox or with Verizon, my ISP? If the former, can you help resolve it?

Does anyone know workaround solution?

Looking for any help or advice,

I only use 2 addons in firefox, they are Bitdefender Wallet and Adblock and since the last Firefox update I cannot get either working. I can install adblock, it will work until the browser is closed, next time I open the browser it will be disabled with no option to re enable it and no explanation as to why it was disabled. I have tried a few addons as a test and after the browser is closed all will be automatically disabled. With Bitdefender wallet trying to install the extension results in an error of the download is corrupt.

I have used Firefox for years with both of these options and no errors. To try and fix I have reinstalled both Firefox and Bitdefender but the issue remains the same.

Current Firefox build is at 84.0.2

Any advise would be brilliant as I really do not want to resort to Chrome (which is working perfectly).

Many thanks.

Hi There,

If i have been through 100s of pages in 1 tab and I want to go back, say, 80 pages, I have to right click the back button and select the page at the bottom (the 14th page) and this will take me back 14 pages, then again, right click, on the back button and select the bottom page and again it takes me back another 14 pages, and again..... etc etc until I get to the page I want. My question is; How can I get a longer list of pages when I right click the back button, may be list of 30 pages, so when I click the bottom page this would take me back 30 pages? (see pic, I edited the pic to show you what I want to see, the long list) Many Thanks

Im having issues with my add ons/ Extensions not working. Only one shows in the top bar next to the URL area. Im unable to add any others despite having other Extensions such as Screenwise Meter, Topcashback, Honey. None of these are working though even though in the Manage Extensions area they are all enabled. I have uninstalled and reinstalled but still they do not work. Topcashback, Screenwise Meter and Honey all do not work when I try them out.

Any help to fix this would be great.

Up until recently if you had the discrete Search Bar turned on and used it to do a search, the results were displayed in the currently open tab, overwriting the previous contents of it.

At least since v78 (but maybe even since earlier) this changed. Now if you do a search like that, Firefox opens a new tab and jumps to it.

For me, the original behavior is what I got used to, and that is the desired one because I want to avoid tab clutter. How can I bring it back?
