When wanting to play a game it is said that the AdBlocker should be put off first. My steps are go to the main menu, add-ons and watch the list of my personal add-ons. I have no Adblocker in my settings in add-ons. Secondly there are many Ad Blockers and it is not said which one.

So where is this question coming from, from Mozilla itself? Anyway how do I make the Adblocker switched off then when there is no button shown at all? Might there be a failure in the provider of the game?

Okay, I realize that this question has been asked before. I've tried to disable the toolkit.cosmeticAnimations.enabled and also browser.fullscreen.animate.

Nothing that I've seen on different forums work, I just want to get rid of this annoying fullscreen animation on youtube. It is driving me insane that it slowly fades to black before entering fullscreen.

When I press ctrl+shift+s, I get a menu in the upper-right corner of the browser. It has a “Save full page” option. However, I still have to go and click on that.

Is there a shortcut to just directly take a screenshot of the whole page? Is there a way to configure such a shortcut if there isn’t one by default?

Thanks!

I have Bing set up as my default search engine and it has worked fine for years. Now all of the sudden, any search I request, whether in the address bar or search window is completed by Yahoo. I have tried everything I know to try to fix this but to no avail. Also, when I click the Add-ons button to check for add -ons that I perhaps placed in error, a new blank tab opens up. I'm wondering if I should just delete Firefox and then re-install it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'd like to hide the title bar in Firefox. It takes up valuable on-screen real-estate, and doesn't really serve a purpose (other than showing a web page's full title, which I'm not interested in anyway).

In this screenshot, I have Firefox on the left, and Brave on the right. Now, I know it's only about 30 or so vertical pixels, but the title bar in Firefox is taking up a lot of space that could be used for actual web content.

Is there any way to disable this top bar? Or is it baked into the actual program itself?

Hi,

When I go to Facebook on Mozilla and try to use the messenger app to run a video call (using microsoft surface running windows 10), the default camera is my rear facing camera. There is no toggle i can see to switch it to the front camera. I cannot do so in window settings and have spoken with Microsoft support which tells me to call mozilla support. I cannot do it in any of the facebook settings either. I cannot do it with camera settings in mozilla either. I can use the front camera successfully from chrome! I can from Edge! I can from Zoom. I like mozilla and want to keep using it but if I can't resolve this I will likely just switch to chrome permanently. Please let me know how to select the default camera in mozilla. Thank you.

I just changed my browser because the version I had before wasn't compatible with a site I needed to use for school. On this version instead of using the cursor designs that are used everywhere else, it uses it's own versions and I can't find a way to change this. When I go to click on a link it turns into this really ugly version of the hand cursor instead of the normal one. I know this doesn't seem important but it's actually triggering panic attacks for me. Please help! I'm using linux mint.

My OS is Win 7 Pro 64-bit, and I'm running FFv. 81.0.2 32-bit.

I have my Windows system set to open any PDF file using Adobe Reader. 

All PDF files show the Adobe icon, and open with Adobe from my desktop or my other browsers (Pale Moon and Internet Explorer). However, in FF, they open using FF, and change all my settings and icons to show as FF icons and all PDF file to open with FF. I have all my settings in the FF options to use Adobe Reader for all PDF and other Adobe documents to use Adobe Reader, but FF still insists on opening PDF files and changing all PDF icons to the FF icon (i.e., breaking the PDF associations with Adobe Reader that I had previously set). I have to go into my control panel to associate the PDF extension with Adobe each time this happens.

How can I stop FF from doing this?
