When I open "Extensions" (about:addons) by clicking the Extensions icon, I want it to start on my own extensions, not Recommendations. How can I make "Extensions" open to the actual Extensions tab? Or can I remove the "Recommendations" tab entirely?

I already saw [to remove 'Recommendations' tab in about:addons]. But about:config

 extensions.htmlaboutaddons.recommendations.enabled = false

only removes recommendations from the Extensions tab. And adding

 extensions.getAddons.showPane = false

does not work, the Recommendations tab is still there.

I have installed the Multi-Account Containers add-on. When I right-click on a link on a page, I am missing the Firefox Multi-Account Containers element shown in the Multi-Account Containers KB article (see attached screenshot KBContextMenu.png).

My context menu looks like the attached screenshot MyContextMenu.png.

  1. Has the Multi-Account Containers add-on been updated, and the KB article needs to be revised?
  2. Is there a setting that I need to do to show this context meny element?

I have had several computers and a phone synced with Firefox. Recently, my mac book had to be wiped and OS reinstalled. Since then I have been unable to sync to my Firefox account on that laptop. I enter my standard email and the same password as on my desktop, but get an error stating, "Incorrect Password".

Following suggestion from an older thread with the same problem, I installed a nightly build on my desktop and tried to log in with that, unsuccessfully. Same problem. I used my same email and same password, but the nightly build version of Firefox reported the error, "Incorrect Password".

While thinking about this, I checked my newish phone and found it was not synced either. Using my email and password, I was unable to get it to sync. However, I was able to sync the phone using the QR code. So my phone is now synced to my Firefox account.

I really want to get the laptop to sync to my Firefox account and am mystified as to how to track down what the problem might be.

In about:config I have set "geo.enabled" to false. -> www.google.com still displays the content in my language, darn.

I went went back to about:config and marked "only show modified preferences" -> to my surprise not only "geo.enabled 1" was displayed but also "permissions.default.geo 2" (though I never touched that one - so I thought they must be linked somehow)

I was curious and reverted "permissions.default.geo" back to default -> now it is set to "0" -> but "geo.enable" is still on "false" (so I am not sure anymore if they are really linked together - which doesnt make sense to me)

Now I don't know if I should leave "permissions.default.geo" on "2" how I found it, or on "0" which is the default. That's why I come here to ask:

==> What are the three states of "permissions.default.geo [0/1/2]" doing and how is it interacting with "geo.enable"?

https://austinpollen.com/ Including a screenshot.

I've disable all the Addons except Togglific and Youtube . I use Firefox 99% of the time but for anything with drm require chrome. It loads the page correctly while Firefox does not.

I've also tried to disable certain settings in Firefox Options with no luck, such as; Enabled Autoplay Video and Audio Enabled Allow Popups

Used Firefox for almost 20 years and current OS is Win 10.

Thanks for any help

Still, nothing is fixing the issue. My previous windows and tabs are not being restored.

Help, please!

When deleting emails in my Outlook account n one of the firefox tabs, if I click a little too fast it suddenly opens a new window with the next email in the list. I have firefox set to open tabs, not new windows. And I cant see any setting that should be making it open a new window when clicking delete. Its never done this before till recently and its very annoying.

Since one of the last updates the behaviour for the tab re-sizing got messed up.

When there are only a few tabs with full size, those as well as the additional plus icon is shown. But when there are more tabs and they are re-sized, then the right side gets cut off. First the new tab icon dissapears and then also the last tab get's cut off.

I attached a screenshot with three firefox browser windows showing the problem, as well as a forth one with only 3 tabs open, which are shown in full size including the new tab icon.

This is a new problem as the tab resizinng and the new tab icon used to work perfectly fine no matter how many tabs were opened.

There used to be an icon just to the right of the star (for creating a new bookmark) on the address bar that when clicked gave a drop-down bookmark menu. For some reason it disappeared and I cannot seem to get it back. All I have been able to do is go to settings => bookmarks to get a list of bookmarks, which, however, doesn't have the bookmarks organized into the sub-categories I once had. How can I get that icon back on the address bar? I don't want to add on a bookmark bar or tool bar.

I did a new install of Firefox on a Windows 11 Pro laptop. When I enter a password to a site, blue tear drops appear around the password. I've followed the tips to turn off carets in about:fig, but the drops persist. This issue only appears in Firefox, not Edge, Chrome, etc.

Any help in turning off this annoying feature is appreciated!

I've used Firefox for years on my iMac with its 5K display. The UI was fine. Today I had to delete and then re-install Firefox because the program had started crashing repeatedly. I lost a lot of bookmarks & tabs. Upon opening the new install, I saw that Firefox now shows a miniaturized UI that is very difficult to read. I refer to the UI elements (tabs, bookmarks bar, URL/search field), not the web pages themselves. As part of the installation, I went through all the settings, and I didn't see any controls for the sizes of UI elements. So I searched the internet and found many reports of similar problems over many years. I tried a few suggested changes to about:config settings. Nothing has worked. I am exasperated. What am I missing? Can anyone help?

I have physical limitations and need to use middle mouse button to scroll.

However, in Firefox, middle mouse button to scroll is interrupted whenever the mouse hovers over a hyperlink or linked object -- and, fun fact, there are A LOT of links on the Internet, so this equates to a very janky and sub-optimum experience, in my personal use-case.

How can I make it so that the middle mouse button functionality is not hijacked by mouse-over context? I've already tried/disabled middle-mouse-button-click-to-open-link-in-new-tab.

Bookmarks fetching titles when dragged and dropped by mouse

Hello people,

Lately, I've been having the problem with bookmars.

When I want to save my favourite pages to specific folders I created for different areas, I always used the method where you click in panel with www address e.g. https://support.mozilla.org/, the whole address is now selected and I drag that addres to specific folder of mine. When placed, the bookmark was saved to that folder, but in addition to that, Mozila browser also fetched bookmark title with title of the page.

So after drag-and-dropping the link https://support.mozilla.org/ I ended up with bookmark in my folder, that looked like this: "Get Support | Mozilla Support"

Now when I do the same procedure, I just copy the link addres itself. So it ends up like this: "https://support.mozilla.org"

You get the idea. )Where did the feature of fetching titles dissapear? Can it be returned back?

I've been using bookmarks this way (drag-and-drop by mouse to specific folder) since I can remember. And this problem occured just week ago. It helps me to speed up my process faster than using the star icon. And now I dont even know what I saved when I look at my folder and try to make sence of it the next day, because everything I can see is link addresses.

I tried it on many computers and many diferent systems Win10 11 etc and I still get the same problem. I tried it with reinstalling Firefox, with deafult settings, in normal or inkognito mode. Nothing works.

Any help? Can this be fixed?
