Whenever I open a new window, it starts in a certain standard size (at least in Firefox 77). In earlier versions it would always open "maximised". So for me this behaviour changed (not sure exactly in which version it changed). Since I use my browser almost always with maximised windows, I have to maximise manually all the time now, and that is inconvenient. How can I get the old behaviour back? Preferably I would be able to establish a size I like (maximised, or otherwise as big a size as I set), and then save those settings for the future. Alternatively, I would also be happy if Firefox remembers the size of the window I closed latest. Is there any way to accomplish this?

I have been using Comodo's Ice Dragon for many years but, as all development stopped after Firefox v65, I now wish to go back to Firefox, however I need all my open tabs from Ice Dragon in this current version of Firefox v76. Both browsers are synced and indeed CID's tabs do appear in my Synced tabs menu but I prefer to have them on the top as open tabs. Is there a way to do that other than by opening them one at a time please?

I've installed firefox on my new mac to match my desktop pc a little better. It works smoothly on desktop, but on this mac it seems to be nothing but trouble. Every time I reset my macbook I have to login to firefox manually, and then I'm faced with all my top sites missing. It's been mitigated slightly by adding bookmarks to my highlights page, but I'd still like to not login every time I reset. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Is there a way of making the Password Required Pop-Up pop-up sooner? I launch Firefox and start typing in search or address, while I am looking at the keyboard the Password Required pop-up appears on screen silently. I am typing away then find I am typing my search or filling in a form online into the pop-up! The arrival of the pop-up is random time wise, could arrive within seconds or maybe in 30 seconds or maybe longer.If the pop-up HAS to appear it should appear when you launch Firefox. I truly find this very annoying, having to re-type, then entering the password then going back to where I was before the pop-up!

I want to use Firefox as my default browser and have it installed on my laptop. My current default browser is Chrome. When I click on Firefox in the start menu, the user account control window pops up and asks if I want to allow Firefox to make changes to my computer. Click yes, and it just continues to ask if I want to make changes but never opens.

I am running Windows 10 Pro which was recently upgraded from Windows 7 Pro.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

In firefox, when I have to download many files at a time, I have to click one download link, wait for the modal dialog to appear, finish it and then click the next downloda link. This is very inconvenient cause I have to wait the modal dialog. In Microsoft Edge, things are different, when I click a download link, it just shows a non-modal dialog in the bottom, which I do not need to handle immediately. In this way, I can first click all the download links and then deal with all the download dialogs.(The following figure shows the behavior of microsoft edge when downloading) I prefer the behavior of Microsoft Edge, is there any way to achieve it in firefox?

I have my plugins synced through Firefox Sync. For development I'm using Firefox Developer Edition (FDE).

There are times I do not want to have all plugins en-/disabled in all browser. e.g. I don't need a form filler plugin all the time in my regular FF instance. But I mostly need it all day in the FDE instance.

Problem starts by disabling a plugin in the regular FF instance. Because this disables the plugin through sync in all other instances.

I'm looking for s possibility to disable plugins "locally". So only disable it for the currently running FF instance, and not propagate the state through sync.

A separate "DEV profile" might help, but I don't want to deal with sep. profiles, as the tabs would be synced in this different profile for example.

I can imagine that this is kind of an edge case scenario. But maybe somebody knows a way around this.
