When I record screencasts, I don't want people to see what extensions I'm using. For one, it's distracting, for second, it's a privacy issue.

In chrome (iron, opera...) I can quickly drag and resize the extensions area so nothing is seen. Fast an easy.

Is there a way to do this in Firefox. I am open to extensions or keyboard shortcuts as well!

(Pinning to overflow menu is not a solution. It takes many clicks and a long time.)

Thank you for any help.

Since I am unable to find any forum dedicated to add-ons I'll post my question here and hope for the best. How do I transfer my FVD Speed Dial cells in my old laptop (win 7) to Firefox in my new laptop (win 10). Please don't tell me I'm going to have to redo each one by hand. I did check the Export button on Speed Dial but it doesn't transfer the custom pictures. Is there an easier way to do this? Like maybe moving a specific file(s)? Thank you - Sharon D.

Hi community, when i have only one tab opened in Firefox i can click on the "close tab"-X or Ctrl+W. This action will close Firefox, but it won't close the tab. So when i start Firefox this last opened tab, which usually would be closed after clicking on the X, will open at start again.

This behavior drives me crazy. If i want to close Firefox with the only tab opened remaining until restart, i usually would click the red X of the Windows forms control elements.

Is there any option in "about:config" which really can close the last remaining tab, while also closing Firefox?

Thank you

Hello,

Sorry if there is already a solution to my problem but I've searched for hours without success.

I live in France and I purposely set my system language to English to have everything in English but for some specifics french websites I want them to be displayed in french by default. (not all of thoses websites offers to remember the default language nor have a language switcher)

I tried all the extensions suggested on superuser.com but none of them work (anymore, I guess).

By memory I tried the following Mozilla Firefox extensions with no success :

   Language Switcher
   Language Switch
   Quick Accept-Language Switcher

Also, the point is to "remember" the websites and default language because currently I always have to edit the URL to replace "en" by "fr" and then reload the page.

   OS version : macOS Big Sur 11.2.1
   Firefox version : 86.0

The other workaround I have is to use another browser with the French language set as default but I'm really looking for a solution allowing me to use only one browser for personal web browsing.

Thanks and have a nice day

I use the Firefox browser as my main browser since a couple of years. Yesterday I used is as usual. Today after I started up my computer Firefox hardly worke. Firefox starts ( a little slower than usual) but I cannot brows to any page. It takes very much time to go to a page (over 5-15 minutes), usually a time-out had happened beforehand. Firefox uses quite a lot of CPU today, when trying to open webpages (only Google home page had opened properly after a number of minutes, no other website has opened)..

To try and solve the problem we have deinstalled Firefox and we have installed it again, but that doesn't change the situation.

All other browsers (like Edge and Chrome) work properly but I prefer Firefox.

What may be the problem and what can I do to use firefox again?

I want to disable checking for updates, but the setting to do so has been removed. After updating fairly recently, I noticed that the setting located in:

about:preferences#general

Was changed to "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" WITHOUT my permission. As a result of this change, I get nagged while I am working ALL THE TIME. Like, several times a day. Not just when the browser first starts, but while I am working. I am getting sick of it! It's become spam at this point, drawing my eyes away from work. and if you think spamming people will make them do it, think again.

In Windows 10 I got so fed up with the automatic updates disrupting work that I outright destroyed my computer's ability to EVER get a system update. If the nuclear option is available for Firefox I am prepared to do so if only to make it shut up already.

So anyway, please tell me, how do I make it stop nagging me about updates? and while I am at it, how do I kill the notification system entirely? because I never want any type of notification ever disrupting me while I am working.

Obviously Mozilla understands this sentiment, since the default behavior now is to hide notifications as described here:

https://blog.mozilla.org/firefox/block-notification-requests/

So why be so in-your-face about updates?

NOTE: I am not against updates in general, but back in the 90's when software updates was optional I updated things far more often because I enjoyed having the ability to do research on an update before accepting it. This personal policy has resulted in me avoiding lots of bad updates that damaged other people's computers, but software that updates without permission like Chrome, for example, would constantly introduce bugs or change behavior without my permission in such a way that makes it largely unusable to me. On my chromebook computer I was able to temporarily block chromebook updates by manually setting the version number to a maximum value but the moment google found a way around that an update was pushed that screwed up touch screen functionality, so, realistically speaking, the heavy handed approach to updates is ultimately what causes me to stop updates. Ironically. While I understand a desire for security, these big companies just don't seem to realize that my computer is my own personal property so they can't treat it like it was under the authority of their IT department. I just want control over what my computer is doing. If and when I update it will be because I am ready to, not because someone else decided to force it on me.
