Hello! For some reason I can't add separate icons for extension quick menus to the address bar area and am only able to add the extensions "master" button which shows a list of extensions without going to the settings page. I've tried to go to customize toolbar to add the extension icons to the bar but none of them show up, and I know for a fact that the extensions have icons, I've added them to the bar on other computers.

How do I tell firefox's tab key not to go to links, only form fields. That is, if you go to https://visca.com/apac/dites/, hitting 'tab' should take you to the form field [Cerca], whereas now it scrolls through all the links first.

Thanks in advance, Lou

I view a page, for example, news.yahoo.com. I usually scroll down a way, possibly to the bottom. I step away, and when I come back I want to refresh the page. Up until about two weeks ago, when I press F5 to refresh the page, it would automatically scroll back to the top of the page. Now it seems to go to (maybe) a percentage of the page based on where it was last scrolled. I then have to manually scroll back to the top to see the latest headlines. Was Firefox behavior changed? Is there a setting to control page refresh behavior?

I've been having a weird issue with my text glitching only in my Firefox browser. Initially I thought it might be my monitor but then I realized the issue only presents itself in my Firefox browser. Literally no other program is affected.

I've done a reset, I've uninstalled and done a clean install, I've deleted all Firefox files and re-downloaded the browser. The issue immediately pops up again.

I have been using Firefox and GoToMeeting for years, suddenly this month (July 2023) I get the following message when I try to open a GoToMeeting session”

“Sorry, this browser isn’t supported. Join in your browser by opening the link below in Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge.”

I don’t want to use either of those browsers.

What can I do to keep both Firefox and GoToMeeting?

Dear Sirs,

today i did lockout everybody on a test server of a web application while playing with CSP on the server side. no modern browser was able to open the page anymore. but the real problem was that the configuration interface was also not accessable anymore.

the option security.csp.enable is long gone since FF 99 and i had to ""downgrade to FF 98"" to be able to access the misconfigured server.

please enable that security.csp.enable in about:config back again at least for the development version of FF. someone might need it. other options are to install risky extensions and i would like to avoid that in the future.

Yours

PROBLEM ACCESSING MY GMAIL VIA FIREFOX

My wife and I both have (separate) Gmail accounts – we access them on Win 10 computers, using Firefox. I have set up two Firefox “buttons” (one for each Gmail address), both of which worked perfectly – until today!

Now, when I click on EITHER of the two Gmail “buttons” I get ONLY my wife’s email! I CAN access my own Gmail with either my Android phone OR using the Edge browser however!

So far as I can see, nothing has changed with the two URLs (a different one for each button) – I’ve tried setting up a ‘new’ button from scratch and just using 'my' URL in the search bar but both still give the same result – my wife’s email account!

HELP!!

I recently had Firefox auto update the version of Firefox on my windows computer I have for personal use. Within 48 hours or so, Microsoft defender gave me the following notification in the image below, also mentioned in the title.

A little research has had mixed results on Reddit. Anyway, I am not directly looking for advice here on securing my device. Rather, I am wondering if there is any chance this could be a problem on the Firefox end, perhaps an issued caused by the recent update? Thanks.

I use multiple Firefox profiles. I would like an EASY way to see the name of the Firefox profile somewhere on the screen. The attached image shows a theme I created which shows the name of the profile on the menu bar. I forgot exactly how I did it, but it involved typing this in a Word document, taking a screenshot and turning it into a jpeg, crop the image, upload it as a theme, then test it. Repeated several times until I got it to work.

I don't need or want fancy graphics here. I just need the name of the Firefox profile to appear somewhere in the window. In my fantasy world, there would be an option to include this name in the window Title bar.

The websocket is working all the browser except only firefox. It gives error: Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at wss://cstechnologyindia.com/websocket1.

I am trying to solve it from past 2 days. I'm using a shared hosting. The hosting provider is saying that everything is perfect from our side. Now I'm hopeless. Please solve my problem anyone. Please check added image. Also I've valid https certificate. Please check attached image.

UI Text Changes Color (Greys Out) When Firefox Window Loses Focus

After updating to Firefox 115.0-1, I noticed that the tab names for all inactive tabs automatically greys out whenever the main Firefox window loses focus (see attached gif image). Only the system theme is affected. I should also note that only Firefox 115 exhibits this behavior (downgrading to Firefox 114.0.2-1 fixes the issue).

I'm not sure if this is by design. I've gone through the change log for Firefox 115 and found no mentions of this.

Of course, the behavior isn't that big of a deal. However, since I'm using a window manager (i3wm), an annoying "flash" (see attached gif image) can be observed every time I press a keybinding to activate a binding mode.

If this is a new feature, I'd very much like to turn it off in about:config.

Does anyone know how?

So I have the latest version of macOS Ventura, the latest version of Firefox, and the latest version of Roblox. Whenever I try to open a Roblox game from their website (yes, I know. Roblox now has the desktop app so you don't need the website to open a game), it opens the app, but not the link, which means it doesn't open the game :( Does anybody know how to get Firefox to open the link and not just the app?

Hello, I wanted to restore Firefox to start clean. I wanted anyway to reinstall my (few) extensions, all of which are safe and well known. When I do that, though, their icons don't show up in the toolbar. When I open the "customize toolbar" setting, extension icons aren't there. So there's no way to add them to toolbar.

I tried all possible methods: - "Restore Firefox" and resync my account (extensions are reinstalled but icons not shown in toolbar / customize toolbar) - "Restore Firefox", not syncing, and manually installing extensions (icons still not shown in toolbar / customize toolbar) - Uninstall Firefox, delete everything in Profiles folder, reinstall Firefox. Same behavior.

So, it seems it's something not related to a broken profile, since a fresh profile, with no syncing, does not fix the issue.

Any clue of what I could try? Thanks!

I set my browser to use English instead of my local language and I expect sites to use English by default. Now for some reason Gmail showed me a "do you want to leave this page" browser dialogue in language other than English.

Turns out, there's a new(?) option to set alternative interface languages, and I suppose websites can now choose which one to use?

Wow, just noticed, even tooltips on this website aren't in English anymore. This is extremely annoying.

I'd love to remove the alternate language from that list and leave Firefox interface exclusively in English. There is no option to remove the second language, only to move priority (see screenshot).

Searching through about:config with "language" didn't help. The closest relevant result was for the dictionaries. I do not have problems with dictionaries; "alternate" did not bring any relevant results either.
