I want my home button to take me to a page that I use most of the time but I want my startup page to be something more neutral like a search engine or about:blank. Or if there was a feature in Customize Firefox that let you add your own button that directed you to a web page that would be cool too!

So, FireFox has a built-in "dark theme". But at the moment, I think it is not finished. The fact is that, with the "dark theme" enabled, the background of the FF service pages (for example: "Blank Page", "Preferences") are white. In this regard, my question is, will this be fixed in future releases?

The second question is about "dark themes" on web sites. Web developers have finally figured out how to present their site in a user-defined color theme. For example - Youtube. If I open a Youtube page not with FireFox, it will define a "device theme" and show the page not in "white" but in "dark" version. It is very comfortable. Unfortunately, it doesn't work in FF. Can FireFox be taught to tell the site the color theme of the device?

Hi, I just updated to Firefox Developer 83.0b4 and the two-finger scroll sensitivity has been drastically reduced with no clear way to reconfigure it. I've spent the past 30 mins tweaking scroll settings in `about:config` (restarting FF after each value change) to no avail. In fact, it doesn't even appear that enabling/disabling `general.smoothScroll` or `general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel` have any noticeable effect, let alone the many other options listed. Are there any pages that describe the myriad options in `about:config` so that I can take a more measured approach to troubleshooting this issue?

What changed? And why? Chrome did this same thing at v68 without ever providing any way to configure it and FF has been my main browser since. I'm just trying to understand how such a significant input change can happen overnight without any explanation or any way to fix it.

Nom: Firefox Version: 83.0 Identifiant de compilation: 20201126174332 ID de distribution: archlinux Agent utilisateur: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:83.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/83.0 Système d’exploitation: Linux 5.9.10-arch1-1 #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun, 22 Nov 2020 14:16:59 +0000

After enabling gfx.webrender.all (value true in about:config), there is no more tearing in web sites like google street view. But all my extensions, while working, offer an empty dialog pop-uo when I left click on their icon in Firefox main bar. UBlock origin, HTTPS Everywhere, Privacy Badger or Joplin all act with the same behavior. See screenshot. If I disable gfx.webrender.all all my extensions dialogs are back.

I had gfx.webrender.all set to true before version 83.0 of Firefox and my extensions were working fine.

Via "about:config" the "signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled" option is enabled. I tested it on a fresh install on another machine just now, and it does add the "..." button - however, the option to import and export from file are completely absent - only the options to import from other browsers are available.

SEE SCREENSHOT

The option you can see in the screenshot, that was available until this week apparently, is no longer available after turning it on. I rely on this feature at my Job, when we image machines with logins for our users.

I need this basic functionality of all web-browsers or we'll have to switch to another one. We do not allow the users to Sync their accounts with FireFox/Lockwise, as we do not want the passwords being taken to other locations/pc's where they have signed to Firefox.

Please help - Thank you.

New logo at top of home page. What's the quickest/easiest way to get rid of it ?

Rant: Why did someone think it was a good idea to put a massive logo at the top of the home page ? It serves no practical purpose and it forces link icons down so you now have to scroll "!!"!! There's always ******* one isn't there !!? - someone with a crap idea who thinks the world needs to see it. How many hrs worldwide is going to be wasted today by people like me trying to undo this crud ? This isn't the first time some ignorant little ******* has forced their crap on firefox end users.

When I click on any Zoom link in Firefox 83 on Linux, nothing happens. It seems like Firefox has no idea that the zoommtg:// protocol exists.

I've tried:

  • checking that Firefox is not installed from a snap
  • manually setting the network.protocol-handler.expose.zoommtg and network.protocol-handler.external.zoommtg preferences to true
  • running xdg-open 'zoommtg://...' in a terminal (this works fine, it's how I finished the Zoom SSO login)

Hi- I am trying to switch from Google to Duckduckgo as my default firefox serach engine. I successfully downloaded the add on and it is now enabled on firefox in the add on section. It installed fine. That said, when I click on my magnifying glass in the search bar, it shows only the prior search engines, Norton Safe search, Discover Now, and Google. There is no Duckduckgo option to select and save as the default. What is wrong?

I wish to slim down the UI of firefox to how I used to have it where the Navbar was disabled (yes the one you type URLs into), this used to be possible in an older build of Firefox but it doesn't seem to be the case anymore, Mozilla also released an addon to appease those who liked the feature when they removed it however they have since removed this addon.

I simply don't need the navigation bar and would like it to be removed for some more minimal interface. What's the best way I could achieve this?

All the best, F.Homewood
