I just added "TextArea" to my extensions & it only can be selected by clicking on the picture puzzle icon at the right edge of the address/search bar for a dropdown box of extensions. I would like to display it and a number of others now only on the dropdown on visible toolbars, but can't move them there. When I select "Customize," it shows some basic icons not being displayed, but only the basics and does not include extensions I've added recently. I used to keep icons in the All-in-One Sidebar on my left margin, the Vertical Toolbar on my right margin & the bottom Status bar in pre-version 57 FF and don't want the extra hassle of having to use the dropdown for commonly used extensions. How do I get these icons moved into an existing visual space on my browser? I have 3 36" HDMI screens & plenty of real estate to play with, but no way to use it in FF for new extensions. Do I have to continue to use alternatives like WaterFox Classic & Pale Moon?

When I am watching a TV stream on my PC; when I hover on (some) pictures or videos, a supremely annoying pop-up url appears at the bottom of my screen. I have some learning problems and can not figure out the 'userChrome.css' method. I can not work with long streams of multiple overlapping instruction. I am not tech savvy. I do not understand 'layers' and stuff like that. I can do the 'about:config' thing, if anyone knows whether or not if I can fix it from there, I would be eternally grateful. Thanks.

I'm trying to take off this "Extension (Tabliss)" tag on my url. I have followed the instructions down below from another Firefox support forum: https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/make-addressbar-text-extension-name-of-the-extension-shorter-or-hide/28026/3

The instructions I followed are listed below:

"Users can apply custom style rules to modify Firefox’s toolbar area by creating a userChrome.css file. This takes about 10 minutes so when you have time to take it slowly and carefully:

(1) Set up your chrome folder and userChrome.css file following the five six steps in this article:

https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html 45

I have a boring video there if you like demonstrations.

(2) This is the code to paste into the file. You can edit the file using Notepad or a better editor. Make sure to keep it in a plain text format with a .css file extension (not .css.txt).

See improved rule down in: Make addressbar text "Extension (Name Of The Extension)" shorter or hide

/*
   Hide Extension Name in the identity area unless
   hovered for half a second (updated for Fx80)
*/
#identity-box.extensionPage #identity-icon-labels,
#identity-box.extensionPage #identity-icon-label {
  visibility: collapse !important;
  transition: visibility 250ms ease-in-out;
}
#identity-box.extensionPage:hover #identity-icon-labels,
#identity-box.extensionPage:hover #identity-icon-label {
  visibility: visible !important;
  transition: visibility 250ms ease-in-out 500ms;
}

(3) Firefox should read the file at its next startup and apply it to every extension page you load."

Edit: So, yeah, I need help getting this tag off. I'm new to Firefox so it could be something obvious I'm missing. I have also tried CTRL+SHIFT+R to reload the page for changes and also closed and reopened my Firefox entirely.

Thanks in advance.

I'm a little surprised they've taken away the option of choice when it comes to downloading files. But what's most annoying, is the manager opens u and drops down blocking my view of the page, much less that it makes ms stop and think about what I am about to download.

I do not understand the purpose of this. The old way was safer, cleaner and less annoying. How can, or am I able to get that "choice" back?

When searching for a fix I have seen that that there is/was a similar feature in the Edge browser but it can be undone. I feel Firefox users deserve that option.

Thank you.

Thank you.

Just lately I have been finding that, for a few websites, they are unusable because the screen looks extremely blurred. I have attached a screenshot. Compare this with what you see at ba.com.

I am wondering if this is caused by a new secure feature of FF which is incompatible with these few sites. Really, any suggestions would be welcome. Otherwise I have to use Edge..

Is there any way (as in Thunderbird, via layouts.css.devPixelsperPx) to enlarge everything on a given monitor/display/colorDepth setting? Or an approach using userChrome.css that impacts everything, not just displayed text in the browser. Yes, this is a "tired old eyes" (excessive nanoseconds spent looking at bigger and bigger displays with higher and higher resolution) type question. My setup is multiple boot OS including Windows 11, Ubuntu, Manjaro, Arch. In each Firefox is the default browser, but Chrome and Edge seem to have more fine-grained controls for managing the chrome display than Mozilla. Using the latest 64-bit Firefox (100.02) if that's helpful.

Hello. I have a problem with turning off google safesearch. I'm 28 years old so it's not a problem with google acc. I have same firefox on pc and on laptop. On pc and on smarthphone it's easily turning off and if i'm using edge or chrome on laptop it's also turned off, but if i'm using firefox exactly on google it's always turned on no matter what i'm do. Just in case, if i'm using for example bing search in firefox it's also turned off, likely it's always turned when i'm using google with combination in firefox. Methods that I already tried: 1) Turned off in computer settings (not worked) 2) Reinstalled browser (not worked) 3) Checked in my wifi settings (not worked) 4) Updated everything (not worked) Waiting for your help.

It has recently come to my attention that Mozilla may not continue to support Firefox browsers installed on Windows 7 computers after Jan. 2023, when the extended support for Windows 7 ends. Is that correct?

Will Firefox continue to work, but not receive security updates after that date?

Will Firefox still work on a Windows 7 computer that gets patches from 0Patch?

Thanks!

This issue doesn't happen in safari or Chrome.

I am having the identical problem as this person was.

https://support.mozilla.org/hsb/questions/1370443

I'm using Windows 11, Firefox 106.0.3. I have already selected "always ask." I do not see any way I can change the thing that says "Downloads." I see that there is a suggested fix, and I also see that an apparently knowledgeable person has advised against using that fix.

This is very basic browser functionality, and being unable to save to particular folders adversely affects my productivity. Is this issue being dealt with? What problems can I expect to occur in the future if I make the suggested fix?

Thanks in advance.

Hi!

I can't scroll with the mouse wheel in Firefox. It works fine in other browsers and programs.

If I switch to Safe Mode, the scrolling wheel works. But if I switch back to normal mode, the wheel does not work again.

I tried to switch off and switch on "Use autoscrolling" and "Use smooth scrolling" settings, but it didn't help.

Unfortunately, "Refresh Firefox…" and reinstalling browser completely did not help.

I am at a loss, please help.
