Hi all

I'm a happy user of FF but have started to see issues with JavaScript (error message: You need to enable JavaScript to run this app.). I do the about:config correction and it sometimes works, but now the error is spreading to involve other pages - a page worked yesterday doesn't work today.

Is it just me?

On my laptop, I run FDE as my daily driver, with the release version to handle my webmail. I also use portable firefox (from portableapps.com) as a browser to use while at work, from a thumb drive. While using that portable verison, I usually just go to google image search, and a work site that would definitely be secure.

My question: I don't like to update the installation on my thumb drive very often, and occasionally work computers are very slow anyways. So if I were to update it no more often than once a month, which version of firefox would be most secure: Release, Beta, or Nightly?

If doing this is just dumb, then which version gets updated less often--it would be Release, correct?

New Lenovo Desktop ThinkCentre, 16GB RAM, Three 1TB Drives, Windows 11 Pro 64bit, Firefox 104.02 (I don't remember when exactly the icons disappeared - I have been working offline until today - I unplug from the internet unless I'm using it, to try to keep Microsoft out of my PC as much as possible - I'm really considering going back to Linux.)


Add-On Extension Icons are NOT showing. Complicated, but non-working, answers to this problem provided on the internet more than once over the years!

I need to get to some work items from my OneTab saves and cannot.

HOW can I install an older version over this one? HOW can wait to install new versions until they have been tested? HOW can I switch to only get "long term support" versions?

Thanks, Margaret Fennell

P.S. Is there a way to suggest to DuckDuckGo that they SORT their search results BY DATE the article was written and show the dates in the search results? That seems like a DUH.... to me.

The URL in the URL bar is trimmed. I went to about:config and disabled "browser.urlbar.trimURLs", but it still did not work after I restarted Firefox. (see images)

Firefox version: 105.0 (on beta update channel)

I later then found out that there is a lot of unused space on the right. (see https://1drv.ms/v/s!Ag9_47ED3j7sgsZhkB02k7gI3lavyg) How do I remove / make use of the space on the right of the URL bar? How do I turn off the trimming of the URL?

Any help is appreciated!

Hello!

I'm using Firefox MSIX on a laptop with an OLED screen. To avoid burn-in, static elements on the screen are discouraged.

Unfortunately, when the Reader View is enabled on Firefox, a vertical toolbar appears and is constantly on the same spot on the screen.

I would like to have this toolbar disabled or have it to hide/show depending on mouse prompt. Is there a built-in setting I could change to make this happen?

Would this solution here be my only option and would it work on Firefox MSIX? Finding the firefox profile on the Microsoft Store app is tricky.

Thank you.

My new Windows 11 laptop forces me to use the "Mail" app to forward links by email using the "email a link to this page" utility feature in the Firefox toolbar Prior to this, my old laptop would just use Outlook which was quicker/better.

The multi-step method using Mail was cumbersome so in trying to designate Outlook as the sending vehicle over Mail, I designated a non-performing solution which is now preventing me from emailing links (and captured webpage info) at all. I would like to migrate back to Mail or find the correct choice for Outlook but the "email a link to this page" in the Firefox toolbar does not work now as a result of my poor choice.

Anyone know how to fix this? I have "restored factory defaults" and other on the toolbar features but does not help. This was apparently an unrevocable choice.

To confirm that the Firefox account belongs to me, I have to use the Google Authenticator app to confirm my identity, but I no longer have access to it. Therefore, I want to confirm my identity through my email. So I press the link to get an email, but even though I have access to the email and firefox sends an email to the correct email, I don't get an email despite waiting 5 minutes. I cannot confirm that this is my account even though I am logged in here and in the browser itself.

Hi,

Since recent updates to Firefox I get a purple pop-up listing Trackers at the bottom right of my screen every time I open a new webpage. I'm happy with my PC security settings and have good protection software running - but this pop-up listing Trackers is becoming a nuisance.

Is there a way to stop Firefox displaying the Tracker notification pop-ups whilst still intercepting and blocking them in accordance with my security settings?

I see that other users have asked the same question, but it does not seem to have been answered yet.

Thanks,

Peter

Hey guys,

is it possible to disable the "saved logins" dropdown, whenever a password/email field gets focus? (see image)

I've already disabled "Autofill logins and passwords", but that just disables not directly autofilling the field.

I want to disable this field, since I can still use saved logins via right click "use saved password", which i prefer.

Its no form field, i've already checked that + it occurs on all login pages.


The only options i've found where: "signon.showAutoCompleteOrigins" - hides from which website and "signon.showAutoCompleteFooter", which hides the lower part with "view saved logins"

Is there a way to disable this Dropdown completly, without loosing the auto save/ask to save new passwords?

Kind Regards

Access to Google sites (Gmail, Google Search, Google Calendar) with Firefox (v. 100.0, 64-bit) is very irregular. I can sometimes open the pages, but can't, e.g., edit calendar entries. Often when I click a bookmark (in the Bookmarks Bar), or enter the URL for a Google site, nothing happens. Clicking other bookmarks opens the corresponding pages. Only Google sites seem to be affected. Is FF blocking Google?
