Hey guys, how are you today? I had a question as to how to hide the browser/url bar. I have been trying to hide it but I can't find where that setting is. I have used the f11 key for the full screen but it really doesn't change the way my browser looks. Thanks for any and all help!

In Ubuntu 18.04, I bring up a new page, click in the search bar in the middle of the page. Then when I start typing it jumps to the address bar although I have already placed and preferred the search bar to the right. No! NO! NO!

I use Duck Duck Go but Google does the same.

It is bad enough that the upgrade was automatically loaded but on top of that, changing preferences including dumping my home page. Change privacy settings without asking ( to a lower level on top of that ).

Really POOR form.

Somehow I got hooked/tricked into changing the color scheme of my Firefox browser. I chose to add on Firefox Color and design my own, but now the drop down boxes (for Bookmarks, Tools, extended Toolbar) all have this ugly dark grey background with white-colored text, which I find REALLY unpleasant!!! I do not see how to switch the box color -- can you help?

Minimize, resize and close icon not being integrated into Firefox window

Hi,

since the new, yet discussed, Firefox Browser update I've had a problem with the minimize, resize and close buttons on the top right corner of the Firefox window on my laptop. My problem is that those buttons are not integrated into the Firefox window itself.

What I mean is that to accommodate those buttons there is a white long bar all across the top part of the window with the "XXX site - Mozilla Firefox" title at the left and the "_ ⬜ X" icons on the right, while on my Desktop version those buttons are well integrated into the black (my theme color) part of the Firefox window, being at the same height as opened tabs (the said position of the icons on my desktop is represented by the white rectangle drawn on the attached picture (red lines are censored bookmarks and information)).

Is there a way to get rid of that white top strip and integrate the minimize, resize and close buttons in the Firefox window itself?

Thanks very much in advance for any help or reply!

I have a certain add-in installed that Firefox sometimes says is "slowing things down" and recommends deactivating. Thing is, it's my password manager, so I absolutely never want to deactivate it, and am quite okay if it occasionally slows things down, and would like to tell Firefox to never suggest turning off this particular add-in, while still leaving that feature on for other add-ins I might care less about. Is there anyway off adding it to an "ignore it if this add-in slows things down a bit" list?

I am experiencing two issues which are bugging me and have checked all settings to make sure they are as they should but am still experiencing issues:-

1 - Autoplay of videos does not work. I have Firefox set to autoplay any video but when I go to YouTube the video starts playing for half a second then stops and I have to click on play every time. I have tried this on other browsers and it works fine, so the issue is related to Firefox specifically.

2 - Auto open of documents - When I click on a link to open a PDF I get the pop up asking me what I want to do with it, despite clicking the box saying "Always do this action from now on" I still get that pop up every time. I have the "open in Firefox" option set in the menu but it is being ignored.

I have disabled any add-ons for Firefox and tried again but the issue still persists so is not being caused by them. Something isn't right and I've been trying to sort this myself for ages, so hopefully someone can either help or confirm there's a bug somewhere in Firefox that needs fixing. Thanks in advance.

If I'm using "Blue Theme by Valou" and then change the "New Tab Background Color" to a light blue (#b7dff0), the theme changes (when I don't want it to) and the "New Tab Background Color" does indeed change to light blue. Unfortunately, when I re-select "Blue Theme by Valou" by disabling the unwanted theme and enabling "Blue Theme by Valou", the new tab background color reverts to a default slate (nearly black) color -- the light blue background is no longer honored when I open a new tab.

Please let me know if you need more information.

The browser tools (not web developer tools) aren't opening. I could make a guess that it's because I exited my firefox session before closing the browser tools. I will say that now "Disable popup auto-hide" is always on. I wanted to customize the browser with userchrome.css and was doing a good job until I couldn't open the browser tools.

edit: I found out that when trying to open the browser tools 1 or sometimes 3 new processes run, but only for a few seconds.
