Hello, I personally dislike the new address bar (also known as Megabar), mainly because it is enlarged without any user intervention, even if I only want to open a bookmark without typing anything in there.

Is there a setting in about:config to disable focus in the address bar for new tabs? Thanks.

Hello,

I urgently ;-) need a shortcut to switch between open browser windows. It seems to be one of the basic ones, but is nowhere to be found.

Solutions using Tilde do not work for me becuse it's not available on my Apple keyboard.

Why not use Command +< or Command + > respectively, like many other apps do?

And why not at least let me configure that in a simple fashion myself???

Thanks for any solution!

There's a working one for Chrome, but the one For Firefox by the same developer wipes out sessions.

If it can be done for Chrome, you'd think Firefox could handle it. Is there a particular reason why it can't be done? I'm using the restart button in about:profiles. How hard would it be to give us the option put it on the toolbar?

I'm using Firefox Developer Edition while developing a website and that frequently involves making a change on the backend and refreshing the page to look at my changes. For some reason, however, I absolutely cannot get firefox to consistently reload the page completely FRESH and I cannot see changes that I have made unless I open the page in a completely new browser such as chrome/edge.

This is what I've tried:

Disable HTTP Cache (when toolbox is open) Shift-f5 ctrl-shift-r network.http.use-cache - set to false browser.cache.disk.enable and browser.cache.memory.enable - both set to false

Nothing seems to be working and I'm about to tear my hair out here. Is there anything else I can look at to confirm that these are not working? I've literally removed all my jQuery from a script block and it is all still visible. I can then open my page in Edge and the script block is empty.

Options/privacy and security/saved logins/ click on the eye to view one of my passwords and the Windows Security- Mozilla Firefox Verify Your Identity box pops up.

It will not accept my firefox username and pw or my Windows Username and pw or my windows pin that i have had setup for years. All i get is -the password or username is incorrect.

I cannot view any of my passwords anymore??? Is there any way to either disable this popup option every time i want or need to view a PW or find out what i need to type in here? Does it want my FF details, My Windows details..?

My FF details are correct as i am signed in here obviously and in my browser on desktop. My windows details are correct but i just did a PW reset to make sure, and i still cannot use either of these logins to view my FF passwords.

I have cleared cookies, reset my pc and still i cannot get past this Windows Security - Mozilla Firefox Verify your identity pop up to access any of my passwords- the password or username is incorrect.

Hi,

I have a red theme (Red Fade) which I like.

However the menus when you click anything on the menu bar (File, Edit etc) remain the default colour (see screenshot attached). I would like these to be red also. Is it possible to change this background colour preferably using the userChrome.css file or alternatively an add-on? I know how to edit the userChrome file, so would like the code if possible please.

Thanks in advance, Paul.

Hello,

I organise a lot of bookmarks through hierarchy folders. Within these folders there are several sub-folders with the same name, e.g. there are main folders named after the main theme and beyond that (sometimes also 2 or 3 levels beyond) there are folders named after a country.

Folder Theme A

  • Folder Country A
  • Folder Country B

Folder Theme B

  • Bulleted list item Folder Theme B part 1
  + Folder Country A
  + Folder Country B
  • Bulleted list item Folder Theme B part 2
  + Folder Country A
  + Folder Country B

....

I have remarked now several times that the bookmarks of the Countries are moved or gathered in different folders. First I thought I moved a folder by accident, but it happened now serveral times and today it was clearly not made by me. Today Firefox now gathered the content of several Folder Country A of different Theme-Folders together in one. But it gathered only the content, the folder itself were moved to complete different Theme Folder where I found 3 sub folders now of Country A (but empty as the content was gathered.

To make it better understandable:

Folder Theme A

  • Folder Country A
  • Folder Country A (from Theme B) - empty
  • Folder Country A (from Theme C) - empty
  • Folder Country A (from Theme D) - empty

Folder Theme B

  • Folder Country A (contained the content of the Folder Country A folder of Theme A, B, C and D)

But this is only one example, I had also once found only one further subfolder in a complete different folder. I don't see a concrete process how these issue is occurring.

Obviously there is a mix-up due to the same name of the folders, there ar eno bookmarks missing. But to rename the folders is not really a solution for me, especially as these folders are not duplicate in the same level of folders. I am not sure but I am assuming that these mix-ups has something to do with the sync function I activated in Firefox now a while ago. There are currently 3 devices which are synchronised over my Firefox account (1 Win10 laptop, 1 Android mobile and 1 Android mobile). But I have nothing changed with my mobile e.g., I just add sometimes bookmarks over the mobile devices. The "wrong" placements are also visible in the bookmark manager in Firefox on my mobile devices, so it is not only an issue with some settings as the bookmarks were really changed also over sync.

What can I do or is this a bug with the sync function?

This question has been asked back in 2017, in this post. However, the solution is hard to follow and I doubt if it will work now, in 2020.

Also, there is a relevant Bug report. Yet, for version 76.0 on Windows, I did not see a "sync Toolbar" option.

Looking forward to a step-by-step guide to set up the Toobar-sync, if it is possible.

Thanks a lot!
