Since the beginning of Firefox I have used it. I got into the habit of the URL box on the right, SEARCH box on the left. Somehow they switched positions. Its been a long time since I had custom the bar at the top. I tried to search how to customize it as I always customized on new release. Now I can not find the CMD or current instruction of where to find it. [that is because the internet has lots of instructions from old releases]. I KNOW THERE IA WAY to ove icons, customize the Tool Bar but I can find under the current release. Anyone?

Is there a way to create a keyboard shortcut to send a link to Mac Mail? There's a toolbar icon to do that and I'd love to just use a keyboard shortcut. Safari makes this easy. Command-i sends the page link to a selected email program, plus the text from reader view. It'd be great to do something similar in Firefox.

I have a problem with how firefox is treating link to the file of type ".wotmod". For some reason firefox without asking is just opening file in the active tab (displaying it in the browser) when what I want to do is to download the file. Can i somehow force firefox to let me decide what to do with files of that extension? I did set action for all available ContentTypes to "Always ask" and I did check "Ask whether to open or save files" option in settings, but still Firefox is just opening those files in the browser. Other browsers like Chrome or Edge are letting me download the file, but I would prefer to use firefox for all my browsing needs. For anyone interested [[here|https://gitlab.com/wot-public-mods/replays-manager/-/releases]] is the link to gitlab release page containing multiple links to files of affected type. Below I have added screenshot of my settings: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-06-16-13-10-17-d4c7aa.png

I swear there was an option for that. I accidentally right clicked the toolbar and clicked on Something that messed up the very customized way I had my toolbar set up. Then I realized the Refresh button was missing. I go to put it back and something feels VERY off. I realized that the Refresh button is not part of the URL bar. I am not sure if it was part of it before, but I know for sure it was an option at some point.

Currently the fonts at the top of the page (tab headers, address bar, search bar, booksmarks) are all set to a larger font. I don't know how they got changed but they are too big now. If I try change font size and style in settings nothing happens. It is not how it looked on first install and using another browser has font sizes of a more practical size. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling Firebox and also doing a refresh and it doesn't change anything.

Its almost like a bug that has made Firefox set these fonts larger than they should and not able to modifying them again.

I cannot for the life of me work out how to fix this and its very off putting to the point, short of a full OS reinstall I'll have to start using another browser.

In every other App (PC and browser) my mouse scroll wheel behaves normally but with Sheets, in Firefox browser, the slightest wheel movement causes the sheet to scroll dozens of lines at a time. It doesn't misbehave with Sheets in Chrome. I've tried changing mouse settings and settings in Firefox but to no avail. Is there a setting somewhere in Sheets or Firefox that I can change to reduce the scroll speed?

I have attempted to download and use a highlighter in 3 previous occasions, now...(maybe like a fool) have made yet another attempt. Why do developers, etc., make it so difficult to first of all: Understand how to use it? Then how and where is it to be found then activated when reading an article that we want to highlight...? ? ? ? ?

Come on guys.......please start thinking like a lowly end user out here and stop slapping each other on the back when you produce something within your labs. Sorry ...... but I am sick of dealing with this sort of thing.

Very dissatisfied user of anything web and internet...! !

I recently did a fresh install of Firefox, and now picture-in-picture videos are defaulting always to the top-left corner of the screen and to not stay always on top; each time I open a video or refresh the page and re-start picture-in-picture it reverts to these defaults and I have to manually change it each time. Previously the default had been always on top and would show up in the location & at the size of my previous usage. I would like to adjust the default settings to make that happen again, but I can't find where to do that. I'd appreciate information on how to do this. Thank you!

I have been seaching for the solution for the whole day, and i found the closest one. It Does remove tabs, windows buttoms, but the background bar still remains, and i dont need it this way. So thats the code i used to make it >>>>>

  1. main-window[tabsintitlebar="true"]:not([extradragspace="true"]) #TabsToolbar .titlebar-spacer {
       border-inline-end: none;

}

  1. main-window:not([extradragspace="true"]) #TabsToolbar > .toolbar-items {
 opacity: 0;
 pointer-events: none;

} /* This makes the bar shorter vertically but removes the 3 window buttons */

  1. main-window #TabsToolbar {
 visibility: collapse !important;

} /* For full screen mode */

  1. TabsToolbar[inFullscreen]{
 display: none !important; 

}

On the screenshot you can see what remains on tabs' bar place I need my browser to end just above the URL string, so there wont be empty space in the top of the monitor. Can you help me find solution for this problem, please?

When I use Firefox on my Mac, no matter what I have tried it keeps defaulting to the dreaded Bing Search Engine. I understand it has to do with Microsoft, but I don't use any of their products because I don't like them. In settings/search I can restore the default search engines & delete Bing, but it always reverts back to insisting on using Bing again. I have followed several threads about this issue without permanent resolution. Help??

Hi guys. I really want to ask Firefox developers to add the ability for #main-window to support transparency - background color: transparent .

Any attempt to add transparency, or color with an alpha channel breaks the increase and decrease of the window, and the borders of some windows have bugs. When adding a normal color to the background, everything remains correct and works fine.


PS: I mean css customization. html id="main-window" css #main-window

Unable to send a newspaper article to others by email. At the top of the pop up is the statement " Choose an application to open the mailto link." Two choices, neither allows me to send the article to other. Choice 1. Firefox; choice 2. Choose other applications. Previously I had to show my email address and the recipients email address. I'm very frustrated and need help in simple terms and not in the jargon of an IT specialist.

I write in 5 different languages and recently something changed.

Previously a language selection worked like a Radiobutton, only one choice possible, if you selected a different language, the previous one got unselected.

Now that doesn't work anymore, if I switch on a language it get ADDED to the list, which is not helpful since typos in one language is a word in another.

So my complaint is that 50 times per day I have to first UNSELECT the current language, then re-enter the menu and select the wanted language, it sucks.

I'm sure there must be something to fiddle.
