I would like to be able to completely refresh all scripts, images and code (absolutely everything on the page) when I click refresh for a tab. I am a web designer and firefox often serves up old content, regardless of whether I manually empty the cache or click refresh multiple times on a page. I tried some chanegs in the config file too which I saw for earlier versions of firefox but they don't seem to have helped. Any suggestions similar to cmd-shift-r that force a complete refresh of a page would be very much appreciated. Even if there is a way to turn caching off completely so that surfing the web was slower that would be preferable to be able to test site updates correctly. I use firebug so if there is an option in there for forcing full refresh of pages that could also help. I am using the most current version of firefox (43.0.4). Thanks

Hi all,

I am trying to customize my Firefox on Mac because the tabs on top interfere with the menu bar, thus I only want tree-style tab extension to work on the side, with the tabs on top disabled.

I followed this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1184674#answer-1028260 as well as this clear guide on how to create userChrome.css: https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html When I tried to restart the browser, I seemed to have been logged out of my profile, with all customization gone and a standard white (instead of black) menu. I deleted the chrome folder and it is normal again now.

I suspect the userChrome.css file should contain more than just the one line I tried to add: #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } ; Is there any location where I can copy my current intra-browser customization into the userChrome.css file?

Up until yesterday I've been using Firefox ESR 52.1.0 (64-bit) in order to access a VPN I need for work, which requires a Java plugin. I'm also running Firefox Developer Edition 54.0a2 (2017-04-20) (64-bit). Yesterday I updated Java to "Version 8 Update 131 (build 1.8.0_131-b11)", and I can longer use Java plugins on any version of Firefox, which means I can no longer access the VPN.

It was my understanding that The ESR versions of Firefox would continue to support Java through into 2018, but this has not been my experience.

Are there any specific issues with these versions of Firefox that prevent Java Plugins from working, or is this an issue with that version of Java itself?

Thanks!

I want nothing more than to use Firefox Developer edition as my main browser but I simply cannot because of one simple thing. I can't change the shortcut to open developer tools! The addons that are available that handle this task are only compatible with FF, not FF Developer edition and it is driving me crazy! I need to be able to change this. Is there anything you can offer to help?

At the moment there is container feature, but it doesn't really work like how I prefer it to be.

1. A container is limited to a tab, not a Firefox window 2. Something similar to Chrome profile would be great. 3. My current flow is that each window is per profile, meaning that one window is for work, one for personal, etc.

Will Firefox consider this as a future improvement, or Firefox doesn't prefer this kinda of workflow?

Hello,

It's been a while since the release date of chromecast on browsers.. Today, year 2020, all the chromium based browsers add chromecast (Edge, brave, chrome, etc..). My favorite browser is firefox, and i am forced to use a chromium based browser to cast to my androidTV's. Sometimes i think to leave this browser and use a chromium based all the time.

I searched and installed chromecast extension to firefox and nothing works to me, and they are not user frindly as chromecast extension on chrome.

Can you tell me if you even think in add a chromecast extension in firefox by default?

Thanks,

I find the color change in this version 57.0 (64-bit) To a black background with white letters is vary harsh on my eyes. Reversing the colors with the Tab that is open. It is easier to tell which Tab is open. I have a mac-book pro and it's tool bar is black so your browser just blends in and seems like part of the desk top making it a little harder to separate the two and easier to click on a drop down then a tab. This change is harsh on my eyes and more fatiguing, a subtle blend of colors is always easier on the eyes. If the color can't be changed how do I go back to the previous version? Thank you for any assistance. John McLeod

Hello,


While trying to watch "big" mp4 files, I get the error: The media playback was aborted due to a corruption problem or because the media used features your browser did not support.


Smaller files seem to work fine. The problem seem to start around 3-4 GB.


Things I tried:

- Safe mode

- Refresh firefox

- Completely wipe and reinstall, the problem remains.


Since I was due for an OS upgrade, I upgraded to High Sierra. Fresh install (wiped the disk), fresh Firefox install, and the problem remains.

Chrome will load it up after 2-3 seconds. Safari gives the same error.

The file also works in all the players I tried: VLC 1.x, VLC 2.x, VLC 3.x, MPV, MplayerX.

So to recap: Fresh High Sierra install, fresh Firefox install (without sync - no addons), unable to read MP4 files bigger than 3-4 GB.

Help?

"The requested URL was rejected. Please consult with your administrator. Your support ID is: 11373612934950299921" (with a different number each time)

I've cleared my histories, cache and cookies. My Firefox updates itself.

Going to other sites is fine.

I've spoken to the company, they don't know what's happened and are not having this problem themselves or with any other customers.

Which administrator might it be referring to? Can anyone help? (I'm not sure whether to click on 'Share Data' below; let me know if this would be helpful.) Many thanks.

Hello. I've been struggling to figure out how to get the address bar and tabs to hide when in fullscreen mode on my Mac. At first, I thought this was just the default setting, but after browsing other Community posts and discussions on Reddit and such, I began to suspect those are supposed to hide by default, but are not in my case.

Please see the photo attached for what I mean—the tabs and address bar never go away, if they are supposed to, regardless of whether I have a new tab or a webpage open.

I tried Firefox with all my add-ons turned off, because some posts suggested they can prevent auto-hiding. I have looked for CSS solutions and extensions which could help, but I am utterly frustrated. Please help!

Thanks in advance.

I have three devices linked to my Sync account and just two of them seems to be merging information (passwords, bookmarks, ...) on the server.

My devices are:

1- iMac MacOS Mavericks with latest version of Firefox

2- Samsung Galaxy S3 with Latest version of Firefox for android KitKat 4.4.2

3- Desktop PC Windwos 7 with latest version of Firefox

Devices 1 and 2 are merging information to the server but device 3 (the Windows setup) is not merging any information with the other devices.

I have no idea about why not all the devices are syncing correctly but I will like to be able to sync all my devices.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
