I frequently stumble upon websites with incredibly annoying looping images, with no option or method to disable the image changes. Reading information on websites with constantly changing images is difficult due the distraction.

It would be greatly appreciated if an option could be created to disable the continual image looping - perhaps an addition to the FF settings whereby an On/Off toggle could en/disable a context menu option to Pause / Disable image looping when the user right-clicks on an image. ... or, the browser itself automatically recognises image looping and the toggle simply allows FF to en/disable the looping.

Thanks.

why do my add-ons keep getting disabled?

ff keeps disabling add-ons that i have used for years and even keep a v. 5 to use the older add-ons and use the latest ff developer to use w/ more modern websites. ff even disables add-ons that worked perfectly well in ff developer and does not even give me the opportunity to re-enable them like i could before.

is there any way to force my old version to let ME decide what i want disabled/enabled?

Yes, I know addons exist for it but many work places don't allow installing addons, security wise they can be a concern and these addons have poor UI/UX. I am genuinely considering using Edge over Firefox due to them having better tab groups which I never though I would say. Please implement a simple tab folder, literally just what current Edge has. It is a very useful basic feature and I would really love to have it included in my favorite browser I have been using for over a decade. Thank you.

Hello, I am wondering if there is any way to lock the toolbar so that it does not automatically pop up when you are in full screen mode and hover over the top area of the screen. I cannot easily play some browser games because they must be full screen and the toolbar popping up continuously interrupts the game.

To clarify, I do not want the toolbar to always be there; locking the toolbar so that it automatically shows when in full screen is not the solution I am looking for. I want the toolbar to disappear when I am in full screen and not popup when I hover over the top area of the screen.

Thank you for any help!

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.

How to display different windows beside each other not on top of each other at bottom task bar but with Windows 10

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?"

Hello...I appreciate your using Shortcuts & they are very important to me. I once had a problem of not having enough Shortcuts, but that problem has been solved.

My problem now is that the number of COLUMNS in my TopSitesRows often change, without my permission, from 6 Columns to 8. That leaves me with a lot of blank links as well as a lot of links I have visited only once & have no plans to visit again. Why can't I keep the number of COLUMNS the same like I can when I choose how many Rows when I choose TopSitesRows?

Thank you.

We are distributor of Firefox extension for dragon professional. ( We are self distrubutor of the extension.)

It’s ID is dgnria_pro.firefox@nuance.com

Now we have done some modification to the same extension, while publishing it shows error as “Duplicate add-on ID found.”

Earlier we have used same ID for the Firefox extension in the year 2018.

Currently we have opened new account with same ID “dgnria_pro.firefox@nuance.com” and faced the mentioned issue.

We are expected to publish our extension with the same extension id as we don’t want our existing customers get affected.

Is there any way with which extension id “dgnria_pro.firefox@nuance.com” can be deleted from backend , so that we can reuse it.

Hello, how can I rearrange the icons in the overhang menu to the left? Since yesterday the icons are centered in the middle of the overhang menu. If you make the Firefox window smaller now, the icons on the right are no longer displayed. I am using version 110 on a Windows 7 system. Thanks a lot for the help.

I updated Firefox, and now I have tiny tabs at the very top of the screen, a URL bar permanently set with either their homepage or a search bar, and basically nothing else.

There are no settings or themes to change these things.

I can't read the tiny tabs, and I really would prefer a blank page and the small search bar off to the side if I want to search. I am often on cellular data and want to avoid opening anything until I choose it to save on data charges--and why can't I choose what I want to display?

Look, I am not a programmer. I am not risking messing up code in the guts of the browser to change these things because the person who wrote out these instructions is not going to be available to help me if I make a mistake.

Could I have settings to make the browser useful to me? I really don't want to go back to Safari, but I'm an old fart who can't see the new "improved" menu bar.

I have tried many recommendations to control the bookmark spacing in firefox 108.0.2. I prefer to have single spacing, which is much more convenient than the wider spacing which now exists. Although many "workarounds" exist, none work to change this problem in the latest version. Why is this problem so difficult to resolve? It worked before and I trusted that it would work again after updating from the last version where it did work. This change is very disappointing.


Thanks George

I looked through the treads below, but could not see where any rules block any changes from occurring.
