Since the latest update to 103.0.2, Dragon NaturallySpeaking (DNS) add-on will not work and will not install, although the menu comes up to restore, this is inactive and does not react. I never had any trouble with the previous versions. Can you provide a fix? Quentin Crivon

I woke up this morning and my tab bar on Firefox was out of control. I figured out how to shrink the tabs in about:config. However, there is a huge space at the end of the tabs that is completely unnecessary. I've been googling all morning. I tried to find compact mode--but "density" is gone, even when I go back into about:config and enable it. The only other help I found was to change the CSS code and unfortunately, that is outside my wheelhouse.

Is there ANY way I can get my old tab bar back so that the tabs fill the top of the screen as opposed to having a huge empty space at the end?

I have read hours of Q&A about this problem here in this forum before posting, and cannot find a solution.

Until very recently, whenever I would click a link in a page, it would "Open in Firefox" in a new tab. Then after reading it or printing it or whatever I wanted to do, I could click the download [Fx98PDFviewer-DownloadButton] button if I wanted to save it, and an Explorer would open up allowing me to select where I want to put it and what I want to call it (if I wanted to change the name it comes with) before downloading/saving.

Now, when I click a link it just downloads (even though most of the time I don't want that). Despite all I've read, I've tried a dozen settings, and I CANNOT get that behavior back.

If I set the browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to False, and select "Open with Firefox" when it prompts me, I can't get it to STOP prompting me. It prompts me EVERY TIME, even though I have checked the box repeatedly for "Do this automatically for files like this from now on"

And yet it is STILL downloading automatically when it opens for viewing in the new tab, and I am forever now cleaning and deleting crap out of my downloads.

I have my default PDF reader set to the reader I like, and when I'm NOT in Firefox, I do NOT want to have to right-click and select my preferred reader each time.

But when I AM IN FIREFOX, what I need it to do is

- Open in Firefox, in a new tab, 
- DON'T prompt me, just do it, and 
- DON'T download it, unless if I then want to keep it I click the download [Fx98PDFviewer-DownloadButton] button.

HOW CAN I GET IT THIS BEHAVIOR BACK PLEASE?

Firefox 102esr has almost every menu, popup and screen in dark mode - which I find extremely difficult to read, given I'm antique.

I've tried all the modes like light, system etc nothing seems to fix it.

Am I going to need a stack of css code to fix it - code for each and everything I want to set back to light, or is there a setting to achieve this?

Up-to-date Firefox on Windows 10 laptop. Today, for the 2nd time in a week or so, the “mailto” function has disappeared; i.e., if I click a “Send email” link on a webpage, the Windows dialogue box to select a mail app pops up. When I check the applications setting, mailto doesn't appear in the list.

The first time this happened, I found online instructions to refresh Firefox and select Gmail as the mail client. I don’t mind doing it again, but I am concerned about the problem occurring so soon after the recent refresh.

Hello, when I click on link with middle mouse button it will open that link on next tab but doesn't "jump" there, which is fine. But when I do the same with pdf links, it will automaticly "jumps" on the pfd file. And I don't want to. I want to open it like normal link (on next tab in background), because I have a lot of pdf files to open, and this makes it difficult to do it qucikly. Before some weeks this wasn't a probem, it started now.

I recently replaced my old laptop by a new one after battery life issue (and for free thks total refund warrantly). But the new laptop unfortunately come with windows 11.

and like with windows 10, FF 97+ force the windows OS color theme style for checkboxes over the websites stylised ones (like a dark themed website with its own original soft small dark gray checkboxes being replaced by big light blue windows ones making the design ugly) I tried the same trick as my former laptop by switching widget.non-native-theme.enabled to "false", but it caused a tab crash on all page using checkboxes. Restarting firefox solved the crash issue, but even if slightly different than native-theme.enabled on "true"(smaller and dark blue) the checkboxes are always a single forced windows like style on all sites

The trick worked easily on windows 10, how to force firefox to correctly use the websites own style for checkboxes and forms with windows 11? I don't want windows style take over the design of site i visiting.

Typically, when you right-click on a field or link or basically anywhere in a webpage the list of options appears or pops up at the point of the cursor. However, for some time now they all appear in the upper left corner of the Firefox browser.

In the screenshot attached, I performed the right-click from the "Find help..." field. But the list is in the upper left corner. The list appears there regardless of where I right-click on a webpage.

Is there a way to fix this so they appear at the point of the cursor?

The scrollbar in Firefox 103 is too thin which impacts accessibility.

I tried various options in about:config and nothing worked.

I then changed the Windows 11 scrollbar settings directly in regedit and Windows showed the changes. Even Chrome changed the size of its scrollbar but Firefox refused.

How do I change the scrollbar width in Firefox 103? It's difficult for me to click on it as I get older.

After upgrading Firefox from 102 to 103, LastPass Federated Login extension hangs (blank white screen) after Okta login completes. Firefox 102, works fine. Unfortunately, I cannot stop the automatic upgrade for Firefox. LastPass is critical to my work and I've uninstalled it as a result. I've contributed to both Firefox and Thunderbird as I believe they are the best at what they do.

Please let me know when this will be fixed, or how to disable automatic upgrades.

I've some search engines which was configured a lot of years ago (or maybe was imported from another browser many years ago). They are working in address bar (e.g. I can enter there "cve something", press Enter and get redirected to https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvekey.cgi?keyword=something), but not listed neither in about:preferences#search nor in my profile's search.json.mozlz4 (I've unpacked and checked it - it contents does match about:preferences#search). I've tried to grep for "cvekey.cgi" in my profile folder but get no results (I suppose these "hidden" search engines are stored in some sqlite file).

I'd like to have these hidden search engines listed in about:preferences#search. I can even manually re-add them, but how can I find complete list of all configured search engines?
