I am building a website and, for the last couple of days, when I make changes to the CSS file they are no longer being picked up by the browser by which I mean they aren't displayed in the web page nor in the developer tools inspector.

They are visible in Chromium browser and dev tools.

I have cleared the cache and refreshed the page to no avail. It is only when I restart the browser that the new style rules take effect in the browser and show up in the dev tools.

I just upgraded to Firefox 79.0, and now the scrollbars on outlook.com are narrow with no scroll buttons. I fixed this problem long ago by setting layout.css.scrollbar-width.enabled to false. It's still set, but now the scrollbars are back to being narrow.

Has the behaviour of Firefox with regard to caching style sheets changed in the newest version?

I ask since I develop with Visual Studio and browse the development build with Firefox. Hence the URL will be similar to:

http://localhost:55223

If I modify a css file in the build and refresh the page in Firefox it does not change. It never changes even after a CTRL+F5, nor after starting a new session.

If I browse the site with Edge it does pick up the change instantly after tapping F5 to reload. To see the changes in Firefox it's necessary to rename the css file to force a reload of it.

This only seems to have started happening since the latest build and makes it impossible to use Firefox in the development environment. Is there a "hack" for the settings to force a reload?

Hi all,

I am trying to customize my Firefox on Mac because the tabs on top interfere with the menu bar, thus I only want tree-style tab extension to work on the side, with the tabs on top disabled.

I followed this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1184674#answer-1028260 as well as this clear guide on how to create userChrome.css: https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html When I tried to restart the browser, I seemed to have been logged out of my profile, with all customization gone and a standard white (instead of black) menu. I deleted the chrome folder and it is normal again now.

I suspect the userChrome.css file should contain more than just the one line I tried to add: #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } ; Is there any location where I can copy my current intra-browser customization into the userChrome.css file?

I read about a different Firefox issue and I am able to visit this page FYSA: https://ir.ebaystatic.com/rs/v/4ups3vxocu2mherdhxh5b2kdxml.css

Is this something that Mozilla would be able to fix in the next update?

It sounds like peak laziness, but I'm not a fan of opening a menu every time I want to change search engine nor do I want to use a prefix (though I suppose I wouldn't mind 'g' instead of '@google', 'ddg' instead of '@duckduckgo').

I'd like to have more than one search bar akin to the one you can choose adjacent to the address bar--each with its own search engine. If such a tweak doesn't exist browser-side or even addons-side, I suppose I wouldn't mind dabbling with the code if someone can tell me what file I'd have to go to in order to do this.

I regularly bounce between Google, Bing, and Duckduckgo as the search results vary with each (and, imo, Google has been less reliable as time goes by). Such a tweak would make browsing a lot more convenient for me.

In English : Hello, I use several hundred tabs (don't judge me ^^). And I would like to be able to list open tabs like you can do with bookmarks and history. You can indeed filter and select in bookmarks and history. For example, I would like to filter all open tabs containing "foo", and select the ones I want to close among those. And not to do it one by one. Is it possible ? Thank you.

En Français : Bonjour, J'utilise plusieurs centaines d'onglets (ne me jugez pas ^^). Et j'aimerais pouvoir lister les onglets ouverts comme on peut le faire avec les marque-pages et l'historique. On peut en effet filtrer et sélectionner dans les marque-pages et l'historique. Par exemple, j'aimerais filtrer tous les onglets ouverts contenant "toto", et sélectionner ceux que je souhaite fermer parmi ceux-là. Et non pas de le faire un à un. Est-ce possible ? Merci.

When I use Firefox on the external monitor, I set the zoom level to 150%. When I leave home a take my laptop with me, I set the zoom level to 100% to use with a smaller screen.

I want to automate setting the zoom level.

Is there a way to programmatically set the zoom level from a script? Does Firefox expose such an API / command-line tool?

Thanks!

Hello. When I open a new tab in Firefox, there are top sites that I cannot remove. I have set for there to be 4 rows of top sites, but Amazon is not only not pinned, but when I try to dismiss it, nothing happens. I have tried clearing my history, and editing and replacing the link with another site only creates another Amazon top site square. Any help would be much appreciated as it is becoming a pet peeve!

My Firefox just crashed. The usual box appeared to say that it had crashed and it will restart and recover the tabs I had opened.

Unfortunately, it appears to have started completely afresh. No recovered tabs, no extensions, no bookmarks, absolutely nothing.

After reinstalling a couple of extensions, I signed into my Firefox account expecting my bookmarks to be restored but nothing. It's like everything had just been wiped with no warning whatsoever.

I am now at a loss. Everything has gone. Is there any way of restoring my bookmarks? Is there a temp folder of some sort on my system that I may use to recover them?

Thanks very much and hope you can help.
