I would like to use the amazon.com (and wikipedia.com) search engine and keyword. But since I have installed a non-English version of Firefox (or maybe because the default language of my OS is non-English), I get defaulted to amazon for a different country (and the Wikipedia for that language).

How do I get the US / international version as default?

The sidebar that is brought up by clicking on the sidebar button normally shows whatever you choose on its dropdown menu (Bookmarks, History, or synced tabs). And it used to be, if you choose Bookmarks on that menu, it shows bookmarks the next time you open it. But since a few weeks, it is always showing History when clicked, even though I only ever use it for Bookmarks. Is there any way to stop this behaviour?

firefox profile cannot be loaded...With a twist!

Hello I followed the instructions to "Reset download actions for all file types" from here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files#w_reset-downl… (read more)

Hello

I followed the instructions to "Reset download actions for all file types" from here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files#w_reset-download-actions-for-all-file-types. I accidentally renamed the profile folder instead of the json file.

unsurprisingly, i now get the "firefox profile cannot be loaded" message and cannot open firefox.

I uninstalled and reinstalled firefox to no success.

In an attempt to correct this error (that is, to change the renamed folder back to its original name), i tried to follow these instructions: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-firefox-stores-user-data#w_finding-your-profile-without-opening-firefox

Under "how do i find my profile?" it reads "Click the Finder icon in the dock. On the menu bar, click the Go menu, hold down the option or alt key and select Library. A window will open containing your Library folder." Well, using the Go tab, there is no Library folder. but I managed to find the folder anyways. but when i do find the folder Library > Application Support, there is no Firefox folder in there!

Please advise how it is that I can find this folder and rename it

THanks

Just after the most recent FF update I noticed , from time-to-time, that when I print FF is using the FF printer mode instead of the default Adobe Acrobat printer mode. It doesn't happen all the time, but it happens. My options screen still shows Adobe as the default printer mode. So, I don't understand why this is happening. I look forward to anyone's comments. Thanks

I want to change my bookmark toolbar size it is currently 3 times the size I want it to be with my new curved monitor. It is perfect if I switch back to a non curved monitor. But I don't want to run 2 - 27" monitors anymore and just want this 1 37" monitor but everything in Firefox is twice as big on this new monitor.

I have been trying to edit a preexisting theme from mozilla store by using this link. I was wondering whether there was a way to make a section other than the top header an image, because in the colors bit I can only add rgb or css color string.

Here is the code just in case: {

 "manifest_version": 2,
 "version": "1.0",
 "name": "Animated Kimi no Na wa",
 "theme": {
   "images": {
     "additional_backgrounds": [
       "images/your_name-cropped.gif"
     ]
   },
   "properties": {
     "additional_backgrounds_alignment": [
       "center center"
     ],
     "additional_backgrounds_tiling": [
       "repeat"
     ]
   },
   "colors": {
     "toolbar": "rgba(31, 34, 61, 0.24)",
     "toolbar_text": "rgb(180, 201, 240)",
     "frame": "rgb(8, 11, 33)",
     "tab_background_text": "rgb(255,255,255)",
     "toolbar_field": "rgba(54, 58, 89, 0.69)",
     "toolbar_field_text": "rgb(255, 255, 255)",
     "tab_line": "rgb(205, 35, 185)",
     "popup": "rgb(31, 34, 61)",
     "popup_text": "rgb(215, 226, 239)",
     "popup_highlight": "rgb(205, 35, 185)",
     "popup_highlight_text": "rgb(180, 201, 240)",
     "tab_loading": "rgb(205, 35, 185)",
     "ntp_background": "rgb(42,42,46)"
   }
 }

}

As the subject stated, I'm desiring to achieve the result that I can run some webpage with the window containing only the page itself (without toolbar, address bar, etc.). The --kiosk command line option is almost what I need but it will enter the fullscreen mode whatsoever. For instance, chromium has the --app option which is exactly what I want it to be. Thanks in advance!
