Mozilla's unilateral decision to follow Google, and disallow addon toolbars has led to various issues. Many are highlighted by the feedback here: https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2016/11/23/add-ons-in-2017/

But all that seems to be being ignored out of hand. Unfortunate for me, as I was hoping it would gain some traction.

To the issue at hand: I use RoboForm (as do many others). And they have been forced to locate their toolbar elsewhere. They have gone with attaching to the bottom of the window. With maximized windows this ends up obscuring the Find Bar (i.e. find on page)

This issue of course doesn't exist in Internet Explorer. However, currently at least, I am still keen to stay with the notional independence of Firefox

I have contacted RoboForm and suggested an alternate approach to work around Mozzilla's (less than independent) decision. That being approaching it with various alternate at top/window overlay solutions. They have committed to looking into it only at this stage

Another (possible) solution would be simply being able to put the FireFox find bar at the top (rather than the bottom). However, I can’t seem to find a way of doing that.

Is there a solution to this? i.e. can the FireFox find bar be moved to the top and, if so, how?

How to completely disable website translation

Hi everybody,

I am fluent in 3 languages : french, english and spanish. I have configured Firefox (Preferences > Content > Languages) with all 3 languages, in that order : French, French (France), English, English (US), Spanish, Spanish (Spain)

Still, I can't prevent a lot of english websites to be automatically (and poorly) translated into french. I could switch language preferences and put english first, but then I would have a lot of french websites automatically (and poorly) translated into english.

I don't need any translation when a website is either in french, english or spanish. No translation at all.

hence, I'd like to completely disable all kind of automatic website translation. Everywhere. All the time. If someday I happen to come across a website that I want to translate, I know many other ways of doing so.

I hope this can be achieved somehow, even if I must tweak some Firefox settings.

Thanks in advance for your support !

I made a mistake and broke my FireFox profile. I made a new profile, then copied 11 files from a backup of my profile into my new profile folder, following these instructions https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile

Most things came right back, that is very nice.

I am not certain if browser cache is disabled, which is necessary to avoid insanity while making changes to websites, which is what I do all the time. My mental defects did not prevent me finding thousands of web pages explaining how to complete this task. However, my mental defects prevented me finding any explanation created since the formation of the internet (I am estimating the internet first formed in 2008, because the dates of the answers I found indicated as such (anything before 2013 is basically the same as 2008 for internet purposes). And so, I am here to beg a moment of your time to help me resolve this risk to my mental health which will be extremely serious if caching does not discontinue its anti-social activities.

LEST YOU THINK I AM HELPLESS I found my way to about:config, entered cache into the search and up came about eighty various cache, assundry and other forms of affiliated/associated items. The list is diverse, but every item on the list has one very special thing in common with all the others, and as a group, they achieve an astonishing feat.

WHAT THESE configs HAVE IN COMMON All eighty configs produce by the procedures above have the letters c-a-c-h-e somewhere within them in that precise sequence, with no intervening or otherwise contrary letterizations.

THEIR COLLECTIVE FEAT They manage to organize themselves to perfection, including among them every single config containing the letters c-a-c-h-e in that exact order. No slackers calling in with covid or excuses of dogs eating their homework, all do their part in the roll call when its taken this way. This kind of character is exemplary and inspiring.

THE PROBLEM I attempted to calculate how many combinations of values these eighty configs can have. I got as far as determining a penny for each combination would amount to more than 400 times the gross product of economic activity since the dawn of recorded history.

STRATEGY Since trying every combination is too time consuming, my goal is to go straight to the correct config adjustment to send the cache away.

HYPOTHESIS Changing the last item on the list, marked 'cache' from TRUE to FALSE will produce the cacheless experience I must achieve in order to not impersonate a Molotov Cocktail.

The attached image shows what I have in mind. I am going ahead with experiements, but my hope is someone with knowledge will help click this thing in the way it should go.

The space for the address bar is so large that the size of the 'Search' box (Google in my case) is tiny. How do I reduce the size of the web address box so that I can make the search address box bigger? Note: this is nothing to do with the toolbar or customising that - it is about customising the layout of the whole bar and changing the amount of space on the bar that each element takes.

I want to be able to really fine tune/customize firefox, but many of the changes I want to make are only available thru "about:config". An example of such a change -- how to force new tabs to open blank -- took quite a bit of searching and knowing what question to ask or how to phrase it. Is there a list of all the "about:config" commands, and if so, where do I find/get them? Is it just a printable list (acceptable, but just...), a basic searchable database (better, but probably still have to know/phrase a question), or best yet, a keyword searchable db with both of the previous options? Also, is this putative list version specific, or is it constantly updated with a mix of old and new commands? I realize the risk of severely damaging the firefox installation, and am prepared to take it, as I think I'm reasonably cautious, and would check out any truly questionable changes before making them.
