Today I updated my Firefox Developer Edition to version 89.0b2 and now I just can not look at this browser anymore, "Inspired new tab design" is taking too much space and now became largest and at the same time least information-dense panel in my entire desktop! I searched around the web for a bit in hopes that I will find a theme or an add-on that will revert this particular change but no luck. I really want to revert to old UI look (at least tabs bar), there should be default theme or option to get back to old style. After some investigation I found userChrome.css but don't really want to install it (maybe this is actually the way of doing this kind of styling). Please help me revert UI design to old one.

Hi all, am using Debian linux with Firefox 60.8.0esr (64-bit). I know the whole spiel about Firefox not supporting java applets any longer, but I have some old IoT devices that i need to get configured and they use a java applet for some portions of the configuration. I understand Firefox ESR 52 still supports java applets, and i've downloaded version 52.9.0esr and extracted it to its own location. Now i can start it without interferin with my v60 profile by running it like: "./firefox --no-remote --profile ." I had to go into options and turn off the automatic update because otherwise it updates it to v60. Then I downloaded jre-8u221-linux-x64.tar.gz and extracted that. Now the question is how do i get the plugin installed into the Firefox v52? thanks

I am running program which open "chromium-browser" with following command-line parameters in Linux.

--incognito = Causes the browser to launch directly in incognito mode. ↪

--no-first-run = Skip First Run tasks, whether or not it's actually the First Run. Overridden by kForceFirstRun.

                   This does not drop the First Run sentinel and thus doesn't prevent first run from occuring the 
                   next time chrome is launched without this flag. 

--disable-save-password-bubble

--password-store = Specifies which password store to use (detect, default, gnome, kwallet). --password-store=basic

--no-default-browser-check = Disables the default browser check. Useful for UI/browser tests where we want to avoid having

                               the default browser info-bar displayed.

--window-size = Specify the initial window size: --window-size=w,h --window-size=1024,1024

--app = Specifies that the associated value should be launched in "application" mode.


Now I want to do the same thing with "firefox" browser. I need help to find firefox command-line parameter for firefox which is similar to chromium-browser.

I searched firefox website but not able to find alternatives for same.

Thanks in Advance.

Hi all, so since a few versions I have noticed a difference in video buffering. Firefox now buffers a very small amount of a video, like it does when mediasource extensions are turned on. I did turn them off however so videos were usually downloaded automatically all the way, which was very convenient for me, instead of just when you play the video the next few seconds. This doesn't work anymore as if I enabled mediasource extensions and every video used it.

Is there some way to revert that behaviour? I guess it was done out of performance reasons. How can I change it back, e.g. make the video buffer bigger?

Thanks a lot

None of the question related, solved my problem, first, I don't use windows; second, questions related are from years ago, nad seems outadted, because much of that questions suggest to change the values of network.protocol-handler.external.magnet, but in Iceweasel 29 I can't find anything similar., should I create it? what kind of value is, boolean, string...? I don't have it some clear, or at least in your support is not clear at all.

And this link which is recommended in some relates questions : http://kb.mozillazine.org/Register_protocol is broken, at least to me is broken.

so... how may open magnet links in this disspaointing browser?. I don't want to use Chrome/Chromium because they're worse.

I'm using Linux.

It is not giving me an Advanced button or an "I know the risks" button, or any other way to respond. Among the sites that won't load is mozilla.org.

This is what the window says when I try to visit almost any https site:


Your connection is not secure

The website tried to negotiate an inadequate level of security.

www.mozilla.org uses security technology that is outdated and vulnerable to attack. An attacker could easily reveal information which you thought to be safe. The website administrator will need to fix the server first before you can visit the site.

Error code: NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY


I looked at the troubleshooting information, "Important Modified Preferences", but there were no security.* preferences mentioned, or any mention of SSL/TLS.

I tried refreshing again but same result.

Oddly, app.napster.com loads OK (but I can't get it to play any music).

Using 57.0.1, 64-bit, Fedora 27, Linux kernel 4.14.8.

Can't find the option to disable auto updates in version 65. One of the reasons I haven't updated to the latest version. If it can't be disabled, I'll be done using your browser. I stopped using Microsoft Windows precisely because of that behavior. There is nothing more annoying than using your browser and it says, "I can't do anything without a restart." and being presented with a restart button except that when you click the restart button, the browser closes. It never restarts.

I want control over my own computer. I want control over whether this updates or not. I've been doing this longer than you and I'm an IT professional. This can be done a whole lot better.

I'm keeping all of my other machines at 64 pending an answer to this question. Very disappointed that I may have to find a different alternative browser not based on google code.

Opening next to the previous-in-sequence tab absolutely does not work (I'm a stack type) so I end up dragging URLs to the far right of the tab bar -- which is a pain. This wasn't a problem with older Firefox versions e.g. 54, but it's broken now (61) and none of the available extensions address tab location.

I am running a local apache server for website development. I have always accessed these local sites with http://

Suddenly today firefox is redirecting to https:// and I receive the "Secure Connection Failed" error.

I have completely removed the firefox profile by deleting the ~/.mozilla and ~/.cache/mozilla directories, but the problem persists.

I have set browser.urlbar.autoFill to false, but the problem persists.

I am not running any extensions or add ons.

No changes to the apache configuration have been made.

No system updates have been installed since it was working yesterday.

Even with apache stopped, the local sites still immediately redirect to https://

The sites are directed to localhost via the /etc/hosts file, for example: 127.0.0.1 examplelocalsite.dev

I have restarted the computer and the problem persists.

The problem is not occurring in Chrome.

The problem is not occurring with external http:// websites.

I am not running any type of security software other than a basic firewall configuration with ufw

The problem persists with ufw disabled.

I have purged the firefox installation with apt purge firefox and reinstalled fresh but the problem persists.
