When I use the url calculator, the number will display as expected, e.g. if I type 900-756.07 Firefox displays 143.93 in the url. However, when I try to copy that number, the length of the numbers decimal places changes substantially, e.g. 143.93 turns in 143.92999999999995.

Is there a way to prevent it changing the result?

Is Firefox relay free? It says so here, Activate Firefox Relay - Mask your email address

I decided to try it out. I was exploring it, seeing if I could create a mask with a chosen name, and now it says I used up all my free masks.

Since that's the case,. can I still choose the one of those I unwittingly created? Maybe there should be some kind of disclaimer?

When I open a new tab in FF, a row of 8 boxes appears below the search bar where I can add shortcuts. I currently only use 5 of them, meaning there are 3 empty boxes left over. I don't want to have them show history, or recommended websites, or anything of the sort that might distract me; the shortcuts should only be those I actually intend to use, of which there are only 5. To my knowledge, the only easy way to add/remove shortcuts is to adjust the number of visible rows, but this only allows modifications based on multiples of the original 8. Like in Chrome, can I actually remove any excess shortcut boxes I don't want to use? I feel this is a very basic customization I'm sure Firefox should be able to accommodate.

I've included a screenshot of my FF new tab, where the three empty shortcut boxes I'm referring to can be seen. Thank you in advance for any assistance!

I have spent hundreds of hours over the years trying to figure out how to hell to suggest words to the default firefox dictionaries. I don't mean weird words, words used constantly in scientific settings. It is infuriating. I am willing to take on this task if no one else is. How do I join the effort?!? I have 20 years experience at a fortune 500 company. Google is worthless these days.

I recently set-up a userChrome.css folder to customize my browser. The thing I miss about Chrome is the fully rounded shapes that use "border-radius: 2em;". I noticed that I can't change the border radius of search bars and tabs to make them fully rounded.

I have tried: @media (border-radius: 8px) { border-radius: 2em !important; }

I have also tried 30 different codes but none edited the homepage, I have even looked through the activity-stream.css to copy the code and change just that tiny bit for my liking but nothing. My question is, is there any other way to achieve fully rounded corners on all things?

I took a video on a Google Pixel 7 mobile. It plays back on the Android cell properly. I can log into my Google Photos via my Windows 10 PC and the video will play back properly. I also downloaded the video file (MP4) to be saved directly in my Videos folder on my Windows 10 PC. When I try to play the video by clicking / opening the downloaded file on my PC I get an error message. See that message attached. It is prompting me to "download a new codec". Why? In my Firefox browser I currently have the Open H264 Video Codec by Cisco plugin enabled. Why is the Cisco plugin not sufficient? Is the Cisco plugin being updated? Does Firefox browser need to be updated? Is Is Firefox working on a fix?

If I search "lemmy", I want to see that in the URL instead of the full search URL: https://www.google.com/search?q=lemmy. It makes it easier to copy the search query. If the query has spaces than they're written with +s in the URL. I remember months ago this ended up being the default even for pre-existing Firefox profiles, but then it was changed back.

How do I get rid of the purple home page in Private browsing that really defeats the purpose of private browsing when everyone can see this page pop up??? I have tried setting it to private only and I still get this page upon opening. I have searched the FAQs and tried all that they suggest (except for the one that suggests not using private browsing at all). this question and problem go back to at least 2019 it seems to me it should have been FIXED by now.

My job requires for Boolean and New String configurations inside of the about:config section of Firefox. I've been doing this manually by copying and pasting the lines, but I would like to automate this process via a .bat file if possible. I've created a .bat file for mapping network drives before but I've never created one for running a script in a browser before so I'm a noob.

I need the .bat file to convert boolean values to false and add strings. If possible, I would also like for this batch file to change the homepage to a page of my choosing. Any and all help would be appreciated, Thank You!

Hi,

I attend Berklee online and the learning environment has videos as well as empty spaces to write answers and text. Whenever I enter the empty space to write text, every press of the spacebar starts and stops multiple videos on that page.

Their strict advice is to use Chrome, but that is the last thing I want to do.

Hi, I read through another thread where someone was having this same issue and there was no resolve because no one seemed to understand the issue. My issue is that I can't clear the "Save Files to" setting under "Files and Applications\Downloads" and leave it at "Always Ask". What I wind up with is a lot of clutter in my Downloads folder. So my question is, How do I correct this setting so FireFox stops saving files in places that I don't want them saved?

I feel like I've been seeing people online complaining about this for a couple of years now, and it's shocking to me that I still couldn't find a solution in a thorough google search. Has anyone found a fix for the mandatory restart Firefox now pushes whenever there's an update available? Basically, out of nowhere, the program will refuse to open any new tabs or load any pages, instead giving the error message in the image. A restart is forced, and all private tabs are lost without warning. This is completely unacceptable browser behavior. As far as I know, there is no setting or about:config option that will fix this. Has anyone found a work-around?

I've been a loyal Firefox user for a couple of decades at this point, but this nonsense has me seriously considering switching to something else. Thanks for any help anyone can offer.
