An Ad-on disappeared from my toolbar. It is still installed, but I can't use it. I deinstalled it and installed it new. But it does not appear again. It is not hidden in - what you might call in English - the "overflow bar". What can I do to make it appear again?

Thanks in advance Dirk

When printing a pdf from the built-in pdf viewer (pdf.js?) to a network printer, it's so slow as to be unusable. Save the same pdf and open it it in Xreader, click print, and it starts printing immediately. Size of the document seems to play a role; I knew it was slow from trying to print smaller documents in the past, but today I needed a hard copy of a 68MB pdf, and hours later, it still had not printed.

I'm running latest Linux Mint Debian Edition 4 Debbie and latest Firefox in its repositories, 78.11.0esr (64-bit). Printer is Canon imageRunner 2200, it doesn't have any other slow printing problems, as I stated above.

Problem seems to have existed for a long time...

So based to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1242818 the option mentionned in about:config doesn't exist anymore.

in palce of that it has been replaced I guess by services.sync.prefs.sync.extensions.activeThemeID Well this option doesn't do shit. I still got my theme sync even with restarting the browser. It's very disappointing.

Dear Mozilla Community,

I would like to know when Firefox will be dropping Windows 7 support? I readed on some websites that Google Chrome will be dropped support for Windows 7 in 15 January 2022 year so I would like to know if there are any plans by Mozilla Developers to drop support for Windows 7?

I don't have computers with Windows 7 but my friends asked me about this because they know that I am active community member of Mozilla but I can't answer because I don't know so this is why I asked you today about this.

Yours faithfully, Piotr

Search suggestions in address bar work fine, showing the list below the input field, but in Advanced search the suggestion list displays on top of the input field and hides the field completely as soon as you start typing ! Turning off "Provide search suggestions" in settings does not affect Advanced search. Is there any way to turn off this annoying feature ?

Currently, I have configured my Privacy & Security settings in which all third-party cookies are blocked. This causes certain websites to break and become nonfunctional.

How do I configure my settings to which all third-party cookies are blocked by default, but for specific websites I choose they are not blocked?

I do not want to change my settings in which cookies are blocked only from websites I have not visited; because there are some websites I frequent that I still wish to block third-party cookies.

Thank you

I just used pacman to update to the latest Firefox, but the tab crashed each time I open a new web page ( I can open settings, about:xxx and etc... ). I tried Troubleshoot Firefox crashes and it did not crash in troubleshoot mode. Then I tried extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems but non of these options solved the problem. I disabled all extensions, themes and hardware acceleration, and it reported the same error.

I am running RHEL 7 and KDE4 with Firefox Nightly.

Firefox will not use KDE/Qt dialog boxes or system applications. For example: when showing the downloaded file list (Ctrl + Shift + y) and clicking the folder icon to show the file's location, firefox will freeze for several seconds before opening a window in Nautilus.

I have found discussions of this problem that span seemingly a decade without a simple step-by-step guide or an updated solution. Answers range from: editing =mimeinfo.cache= file for the =inode.directory= line, editing items in =defaults.list= file; setting the =GTK_USE_PORTAL=1= variable (somewhere) and then changing various =about:config= settings.

It's just confusing and exhausting tracking this down. Is it possible to get firefox to play nicely with KDE? Nothing that I have tried so far seems to have worked, but I'm honestly not sure where this setting would live, or magic bash incantation I need to run.

I know this seems minor, but having just switched back over to firefox to chrome, it seems very jarring seeing the GTK dialogs that do not play nicely with the rest of my desktop/workflow (i.e., I do not want to start a Gnome vs KDE flamewar, but rather: I'm used to dolphin and how it works and make heavy use of the embedded terminal within dolphin windows or drag&drop files into the Qt open dialog box which "drops" as a file path ... I have no idea what happens if I drag something into the GTK open dialog box)

The Firefox account settings page displays a list of logged in devices at the very bottom of the page (connected services).

I have verified all logged in devices to be correct. However for one of the devices (my main computer browser), the location displayed is COMPLETELY off. I live in Norway, and it claims device location is somewhere in Oregon, United States. I do not use any VPN services and both my public IPv4 and IPv6 addresses are located in Norway, from which I connect with the device/browser in question (whatismyipaddress.com shows correct location for both of them). Also, activity timestamp is updated in accordance with my own activity from the client, but the location remains wrong. I also tried logging out the device, and logging back in, but this did not fix the location.

Obviously the location service used for the logged in device list is unreliable. I suggest that you please also show the latest IP address used by each device, so that more technically inclined users can verify correct addresses themselves, should the location be way off. It is unsettling to see strange locations (for known devices) on a page used to verify the security of my Firefox account. In this instance, there is no security breach, but it required me to spend much time investigating.

I do not know if it matters, but the device in question is a Linux desktop Firefox client.
