Hello Community.

I've selected an option to open PDF's in Firefox for preview. And if I wanted to download the PDF after preview, I simply clicked the downloab button from the preview app/tab. The files were downloaded with default filename and to the downloads folder without prompts. But since a while ago the dialog where the save location must be selected and filename given for the file opens up after the click of the download button.

How can I change it back to the previous behaviour without having to input filename and select the file download directory?

Could you add a option of closing tab with <kbd>Ctrl</kbd>+<kbd>w</kbd> to the advanced preference?

Also, I realized that:

```browser.tabs.warnOnClose False``` Does this option activates warn when closing the tab? If your answer is yes, it is not working at all.

Posting on behalf of a user who hit the VPN inbound queue with a question better suited for this forum:

The tab bar, toolbar, and address bar placement in my Firefox Desktop browser has recently changed. I have been trying to revert these recent changes as they interrupt my current workflows.

I DO know which prior profile save contains the desired info however, it contains many files and I DO NOT KNOW which files I need for the bars to be restored. If you could provide me the name(s) of the file(s) that holds the bars data, I am probably saved, hopefully saved.

I was quite unhappy with the new Firefox Proton design, so I made a CSS file and copied the following code from a website. However, I don't know what to do to (1) slightly reduce the tab height, (2) get back tab borders for inactive tabs and (3) remove the small gaps between tabs. How exactly do I have to change the following code to do so (ideally, for convenience, please just complete the code accordingly)? Thanks in advance for any support!

/*** Tighten up drop-down/context/popup menu spacing (8 Sep 2021) ***/

menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menuitem, 
menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menu {
  padding-block: 2px !important; /* reduce to 3px, 2px, 1px or 0px as needed */ 
  min-height: unset !important; /* v92.0 - for padding below 4px */
}

Hi, I'd like to disable that annoying animation when going to fullscreen (by hitting F11). Supposedly, setting the following should work:

Go to about:config

Set: full-screen-api.transition-duration.enter 0 0 full-screen-api.transition-duration.leave 0 0 full-screen-api.transition.timeout 0 full-screen-api.warning.delay 0 full-screen-api.warning.timeout 0

Restart

However, this does not have any effect in Firefox 94.0 on Ubuntu. Is this a bug/regression? Or is there some other way to disable the animation?

Greetings... I would like to increase the font size in right click menu box in FF 89.0 (64-bit) (see attached png)

I found a similar 2018 query here at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1241117#answer-1174375

and based on that exchange I added the following to userChrome.css file

/* FONT SIZE IN RIGHT CLICK MENU BOXES 5/1/22 */

  1. mainPopupSet menuitem,
  2. mainPopupSet menu { font-size: 16pt !important; }

/* */

I closed and reopened FF. This change has no effect on the menu font no matter what font-size value I enter. Have I done something wrong?

I have the same problem as this person: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1011006

but I have a windows 10 and the solution does not show up in the Taskbar settings. Is there an updated version for this? Here is the OPs original question.

"When I open a new Firefox window, it stacks it on top of all the others in the task bar at the bottom. I would like them to be BESIDE each other. It used to do that. Now I have to hover over the ONLY Firefox item on the bottom task bar and read the list to find the one I want to go to. This is a waste of time and tedious.

How can I change this?"

For over a year (just over a year on this computer and a few more years on a different computer) I have had a custom theme at the top appearing from the file menu through the address bar. The computers have also always had the New Tab menu being a light colored screen. I turn on the computer today, to find I guess Firefox updated last night? and completely got rid of the lightness of that page to make it dark, leaving me on the verge of a migraine every time I have to look at that thing.

How do I get rid of that dark page, back to the lighter version WITHOUT getting rid of my custom banner at the top? (yes I tried to use the light extension in theme and that gets rid of the banner and leaves me with a horrible white at the top which is just as big of an issue for me as all the black. I really need that like muted Tan back.)

Under my settings / applications, PDF files are listed twice as (application/force-download) AND (application/pdf). As a result, when I open a PDF file from within Firefox, the file opens AND downloads. I do NOT want it to download and ONLY want it to open. I have changed the setting to 'Always ask' and every other setting available, yet it continues to download AND open. How to I change it to OPEN only and NOT download?

I want to change background color in Firefox from white to gray (because my eyes get tired of white)

I try to change it this way: Preferences -> Language and appearance -> Font -> Colors

But it does not work as expected on some complex web sites. All I want to do is to darken the background, but not to change color of other elenments (links, text, scrollbars).

Can I do it in Firefox ? How [Preferences -> Language and appearance -> Font -> Colors] works in Firefox? Perhaps, there is some "override css" for the entire browser?

What's this infatuation with black everywhere recently. I find black to be good in some respects but not in others. Some webpages just look (read) odd in black and icons (of sports teams for example) look wrong. Though I don't mind my tabs being black (though I prefer blue overall) I don't want the rest of my page to be black, White, as has been in the past and in most web sites is too bright and contrasty at times. Is there a theme whereby the main page (not the tabs) is in a mid or light grey? If so please let me know since the extremes of black/white just don't work for me. Thanks in advance.

FFox 92 update today. Menu spacing went to double. No shock there. Found the CSS code below for UserChrome.css and set it up.

EX.

menupopup > menuitem, menupopup > menu {
  padding-block: 4px !important;
}
:root {
  --arrowpanel-menuitem-padding: 4px 8px !important;
}

Here's the issue: I want it tighter than 4px. So, I set it down to 2px... eventually dropping it to all 0px settings.

EX:

menupopup > menuitem, menupopup > menu {
  padding-block: 0px !important;
}
:root {
  --arrowpanel-menuitem-padding: 0px 0px !important;
}

But, it doesn't get any smaller than the above 4/8px set up. Bug? Perhaps there's another CSS setting to be tweaked for V 92? I do not have any other CSS for these items elsewhere in my UserChrome file.

When I click on some sites that have images from Instagram, I get a link where it says I need to go to Instagram to view it however, before that link loads, for a split second, there is an option that appears in the same space that has a toggle setting for "always show images from Instagram" or something like that. I click on it if I am fast enough but it doesn't save the setting and it will show when I click 'Next' to the next image.

I can't find anything in the settings to change this and I am not on Instagram, nor want to be, and I do not want to change browsers... Any ideas?

I chose lavender as the background color, but I hate it. It has changed all my links to lavender and I want to go back to the default settings before I added the lavender. I want the default settings before the Colorways options were made available.

Even though I have figured out how to change the themes, the lavender color is still present in certain words. I want it to go. I want what I had before I added the lavender theme.

I have looked at the articles, but I cannot find an option that says "go back to what you had before" or "undo" or "restore default settings". I'm possibly missing a step. Don't know. I'm frustrated that I can add something so easily, but not get rid of it so easily.

Please help me restore my back ground colors to pre-Colorways add-on lavender. I have a Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.6.
