Hello,

recently I moved a website to the "Block Popups from this site" list.

Now I only have the option to generally block all pop-ups or to allow them in general.

Is there any way to get that yellow bar back, telling me, that something has blocked and allows me to select which Popup is to be allowed and which is declined?

Thank you!

Hi, does anybody else have this problem? I am using the Facebook container add-on which works fine apart from when I have been on Facebook and then go on to the MSN games site without closing Firefox first. If I close Firefox after using Facebook then open MSN games all is fine. If I forget to close Firefox and go straight to MSN games I lose all my games history and have to log on again with a pop-up appearing saying that they have changed their privacy policy. Many thanks

Hi,

I have been working with the Style Editor from the Developer Tools. As you can see from the screenshot, there's a massive list of style sheets.

I'm looking for a certain style sheet to edit, however the list is not sorted alphabetically. So I don't know how to find the name of my style sheet other than just trying to scroll through the whole list to spot my specific sheet. This every time take hours for me to find what I'm looking for.

Is there any way to find a style sheet in that list faster than manually scrolling through the list? Something like Ctrl + F, or a way to sort that list alphabetically?

Thanks for your help!

I have been viewing this website for years and, suddenly, this evening, the text in certain files on the website has changed to white text on black background, when viewed through Firefox for Windows on my Laptop.

Story files on this website are either in a basic doc format or in html. The html files are fine but the doc files are the ones displaying this strange change in 'behaviour'. Just for comparison, even though Firefox is my preferred browser, I tested the issue on Edge; the doc files, when viewed there, still display as black on white, as usual, so to say.

I have reviewed the web and found various things about Windows wide settings and also a post about the prefs.js file. The windows wide settings didn't seem to have any effect. I did the procedure of renaming the prefs.js file to prefs-old.js, which forced Firefox to return to default settings, but there was still no 'correction'. I also completely shut down the laptop and restarted; again no resolution of the problem.

Any ideas, please?

Can anyone please tell me how to stop seeing boxes full of letters and numbers instead of icons on certain websites I visit ? I attach a small picture of what I mean as an example. It only applies to a very small number but it does make navigating around the sites difficult.

I would be most grateful for any advice offered.

Recently, I updated Firefox (as it regularly bothers me to do so) and it added an annoying new feature that appears whenever I type anything into the address bar. It used to just provide search suggestions from my list of bookmarks, but now below the list of search options is a separate segment with "This time, search with:" followed by multiple icons--in my case, Google (my default browser), bookmarks, tabs, history, and settings. And you know how when you're sometimes typing something you want to find and the desired result is toward the bottom of the list, so instead of pressing the down arrow key to get to it, you press the up arrow to start from the end…well now, when I try that on the address bar, it cycles through each icon before letting me get to the list's end.

I know it sounds like a petty complaint, but it's annoying and inconvenient to have to do it each and every time since it's habitual to cycle from top to bottom or vice versa on basically every other search bar. I went the route of "Settings > Options > Search > Search Shortcuts" to see if I could get rid of these icons, but just like how it doesn't let you get rid of search engines when you only have one on the list, it doesn't give you an option to remove these superfluous icons.

These Mozilla dumbasses seem to lack foresight and/or consideration with the way they limit user preferences. Can anybody give me any alternative solutions? Please spare me the snide answers like "switch to Chrome" (already considering it). If there's a way to simply circumvent these icons in the address bar rather than getting rid of them entirely, that would be more that enough: I just don't know how to go about it. Anyway, thank you for taking the time to read my submission/rant.

Is there a way to hide the current window when dragging off its one and only tab?

Hello! I'm a sort-of new Firefox user, and I just noticed some differences in behavior between Firefox and Chrome.

In Chrome, when I drag a tab out of its window so that I can move it into another window, if the window in question only has one tab, then dragging that one tab will hide the current window and show the background, allowing me to easily drag it into that background window.

This is especially useful when both windows are maximized.

In Firefox, I cannot do the same. Dragging a tab around a window with only that one tab open does not hide the current window, but rather, drags the tab around the browser window. I recognize now that this is because I can drag the tab to other places such as the Bookmarks menu, and if the above Chrome behavior was replicated, I would have a hard time doing this with just one tab open.

Though, I think the way to merge a maximized one-tab window onto another window in Firefox is to just drag the window a bit so it stops becoming maximized, then drag the one tab onto the window behind it. Is that how I'm supposed to do it, or is there a better way?

On another note, is there any way as of the moment to replicate Chrome's behavior with regard to this tab dragging situation? If not, thank you for your time, anyway. I'll just get used to the new way of doing this for now. Thank you all!

On this page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-delete-bookmark#w_deleting-a-single-bookmark it describes two ways to delete a bookmark. I've tried both. Neither one works. Suggestions appreciated.

I use 85.0.2-64bit on a Windows 10 PC.

For the last month or so, when I click on any of the headline links from the news.google homepage, I'm shown only a blank page. No error message. The url looks normal.

-The links all work when I use Edge.

-I do have Add-ons, but I turned them all off, restarted Firefox, and the links still fail. Any remedies? Suggestions? Some setting I don't know about?
