Ctrl Shift Enter - Dot Net, Dot Org

You know how you can type a URL and then Ctr+Enter and FF autopopulates the .com? Well years ago "Shift+Enter" autopopulated ".net" and "Ctrl+Shift+Enter" autopopulated ".org".

I really liked that feature. I know a lot of people don't, or don't see its point; that's not important.

About three years ago, I added UserChrome.js and enable-UserChrome.js , which acomplished the two autopuopulating tasks quite nicely.

Until about four weeks ago. I don't know if an FF update stopped reading those two .js files, or if there's a conflict somewhere else, or what. I don't know where to begin - other than posting here for help.

Thanks in advance!

  • UserChrome.js is in the subdirectory: C:\Users\[ME]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\gaydtewj.default-release-1
  • enable-UserChrome.js is in C:\Program Files\Internet Shenanigans\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref (firefox.exe is in C:\Program Files\Internet Shenanigans\Mozilla Firefox )

I run several of my Firefox windows in compact sizes, and there are just so many little icons taking up space in the address typing field (what do you call it? It isn't the address bar).

I do not use the Tracker shield. I do not use Padlock "Verified". I do not use "You have granted this website blah blah permissions". I do not use Open in Picture-in-Picture, or the bookmark buttons.

These features, when I need them, I would rather access from somewhere else, like from a menu or with a shortcut key combo.

See the image of how cramped it is with the imo superfluous buttons that for some reason decided they have to live in the text box, preventing me from seeing what I type.

(first question, new to firefox, sorry if i did anything wrong!)

On youtube there's the top bar, including the search bar, youtube home, notifications, your accounts, etc.. If my mouse isn't hovering directly over this area, it becomes darker, such as the whites turning into grays. What setting in about:config should i change to make it stay light and, well, normal, no matter where my cursor is?

Customize the location of print headers and footers?

Hi. Is there a way to customize the order of Firefox headers and footers on printed pages (including print-to-pdf)?

I prefer the header to be url only, in the center. While the footer has page on left; title in the center, and date on the right.

This used to be easy to accomplish with print options in older versions, then -- as the print dialog changed (and actually improved a lot in most *other* ways) I had to turn to about:config modifications like those described in the 1/27/21 reply here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1323433. But now I can't seem to find any way to have any control over print headers besides "on" and "off."

One problem I find with having both page title and url on top is that these can be long, causing one or both to be truncated.

I'm using Firefox 115.3esr.

If you drag text onto a Firefox window, it interprets that text as a URL and goes to that page. This is a problem because the only time I drag and drop text onto a Firefox windows is a password from my password manager. If I slightly miss the text box, it interprets the password as a URL and tries to go to it. This (a) Does a DNS lookup of the password. As there usually won't be a valid extension, I expect this only gets as far as my router, but it's still not ideal. (b) The page I was on has now gone, replaced with the "Couldn't connect to server" page, so I need to start again. Usually this is just a login page, which isn't a massive issue, but if it's a registration page I lose all the data I'd entered on that page, and even if it is just a login page, some badly implemented sites can lose information if you step out of the workflow.

We have used Firefox in our environment for well over a year in the configuration explained here: https://help.okta.com/en-us/content/topics/directory/ad-dsso-configure-browsers.htm

OKTA is our Identity provider to do Single Sign on to our SaaS applications.

today when version 118 rolled out, this functionality stopped working. Can you help me to get this working again. Chrome and Edge are not affected, so we have options, but we would really like to use Firefox.

Thanks so much for your help

I use this addon

Select After Closing Current

But apparently I'm not using it correctly.

When I close a tab, it defaults to the tab on the right, which, to me, IMO, is counter intuitive.

And just as bad, when I restart the browser, it opens to the tab on the right much of the time, instead of the current active tab.

Is there something I can do can do about this?

Hello FF community. I come here for a question, maybe a confirmation (I'm gonna try to be as short as possible ).

I'm using for years infamous Aris-t2 customCSS. I'm about to "jump" from FF v88 on my desktop to V115.0.3esr. I tested everything on my laptop, and set everything on the customCSS so it looks like my actual V88. It's almost identical, but one thing is bugging me: the scrollbar.

Scrollbar on FF115 isn't the same anymore than in V88 as you can see on the screenshot I posted (test scrbr for V115, scrbr2 for V88). The clean one with "3lines grab button" I actually use is less "eye catchy" than the new one. I've made some researches, and apparently, starting FF V97 about 2 years ago, scrollbar has been change to use W10 "flat like" one, and at FF106+, every older code was apparently removed. I tried to changed a few things in about:config, like "widget.non-native-theme.enabled" or multiple commands about scrollbar, nothing changed.

So I just wanted to know if someone could confirm me that the old scroll bar I use is now impossible to get back, or if there's a command I miss that could do the thing.

Thanks, have a nice day ^^

I'm having a lot of frustration trying to edit the shortcuts in the New Tab page in any kind of smooth and easy manner. While I recognize that having sync turned on means that Firefox destroyed my pinned shortcuts on this PC when I logged into Firefox on the new PC I am setting up, it's incredibly inconvenient, and the lack of options in regards to editing makes replacing all of it really, really awful. I have no ability to see the history of my shortcuts, nor can I save configured shortcuts and restore them should an improper sync destroy my previous settings. If I want an empty tile, I have to go through and repeatedly dismiss everything from my history to stop more of my visited websites from replacing said tile. Is there something obvious I'm missing here? If not, is there any kind of way that more customization options for New Tab shortcuts might be suggested?

There is a serious problem here! I have the latest Firefox browser for Windows installed: 118.0 (64-bit). Under Settings, I have the box checked that says: Open previous windows and tabs.

It isn't working. All my tabs keep getting wiped out. I am a developer. I primarily use Firefox because it is the only browser that knows how to display bookmarks in a column. I have many tabs open at one time. I need to pick up where I left off. Now this is completely unusable. Can someone get this back to normal operation?

Please!!
