Firefox 127 - close tab button missing for background tabs when more than 10 tabs opened

In previous versions I was able to open around 15-20 tabs before X button disappeared from them and I was no longer able to close them without activating them first.

Now this happens much earlier - only 10 tabs is enough on my 1080p 100% scaling desktop and 9 tabs on my 1080p 125% notebook.

X button is present if you have 10 tabs or less, but disappears with 11 tabs, when there is still plenty of space on tabs to click on X!

I compared it to brave and in brave you can still have 22 tabs opened before X button disappears!

Anyone has any method to force presence of x button? This is really annoying as I often have much tabs open and close only 2-3 of them. Now I have to open each one again to be able to close it.

Is there a way to skip the wait for the "Accept the Risk and Continue" button to appear? I assemble and set up copiers for a living. Every single one of them has a self-signed certificate. I see this "Potential security risk ahead" screen dozens of times a day because of this. I understand why I'm seeing it. I understand the importance of a security warning like that. What I would like to do is skip the delay between when you click on advanced and the "Accept risk and continue" button becoming available to be clicked on. That or some way to disable that security warning specifically for self-signed certificates would be ideal.

I can not seem to set Firefox as my default browser. After I correctly setup Firefox as the default , and it shows up as default even in Firefox. Anytime I click on a link in Outlook it brings up Microsoft Edge. If I setup DuckDuckGo as the default browser, a click on a link brings me to DuckDuckGo. One item that might be the cause of my issue, is that when I go into Apps, in my windows 11 setup, it actually shows two Firefox applications.

Thanks for any help!

Hello,

I had a Firefox update last night and I now have version 121. I usually look at a French site so I click on the translate symbol on the toolbar - fine. But this no longer works - the "en" appears but the page is still in French. If I click on Menu then Translate....... just the same. This has only just happened so must be a problem with the new update?

TIA

I see no microphone on in the address bar for Firefox. I read that it is supposed to be (standard feature?) on the left side. How do I restore or enable this feature? For good measure, would someone please send me an image (snip& sketch?) of the address bar showing what this looks like. First time posting so I don't even know if one can attach or include images in a reply.

There used to be an extension called "IE Tab". It allowed you to right click on the link, and open the site in a tab, using Internet Explorer, for sites that didn't work properly in Firefox. I was wondering if anybody knows of any similar extension that would do the same for Edge? I can't open Twitter (X) using Firefox anymore, but I can open it using Edge. I don't like Edge (obviously), but I have no choice. Thanks in advance!!!

I turned off the translator popup via about:config and browser.translations.automaticallyPopup to false. Now translation is gone. How can I keep the option to quickly translate a page in the address bar without having the popup jump in my face each time I open a new tab, forcing me to click it to make it go away? This would be a nice option but an extremely distracting presentation. thanks.

Hello!

I am multilingual and write in multiple different languages, and the red markings from spellcheck underneath non-English sentences get annoying when they are so frequent. I understand that I can install multiple dictionaries, but that does not allow me to use more than one language's spellcheck at a time.

Is it possible to activate 2+ language dictionaries in Firefox?

Thanks for the help, Sylvan

I'm running Mojave 10.14.6 on a MacMini (late 2018) with 64 GB 2667 MHz DDR4 and Firefox v86.0 64-bit.

I need to disable Command+D that's currently used to "Bookmark This Page".

I need Command+D for another use.

I've searched about:config for "bookmark" and get a lot of hits, but I can't tell which one controls the setting for Command+D.

Or . . . am I barking up the wrong tree?

I want to disable Command+D.

Leaving the ability to mouse up and click Bookmarks > "Bookmark This Page" is ok.

I just need to disable the keyboard shortcut Command+D for "Bookmark This Page".

Anyone got a "howto" for this?

Thanks!

Hi there,

I'm am trying to customize Firefox 91.4.1 ESR for my users who were using 78.10.1 before, however cannot find how to add Library-Button (which was default in previous versions) to their UI. Since I am avoiding to amend pref.js and user.js, and this option is not controlled in latest admx template, maybe there is a way to use firefox.cfg? If yes, then how to add it there? Will it not lock users UI and he wont be able to change it afterwards? How about extensions interfering with UI? Also, will the removal of the icon continue in the next ESR versions?

Many thanks for your help in advance!

I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 . . . I was doing this (below), to customize my header and footer, but in this version of FF, I no longer see this in Options - only in: about:config . . . keyword "footer" . . . there, I would have to change it for 5 different ways of printing (to printers or to PDF)

I need to get rid of printing the URL in the footer - many times, it's too long, and I don't need it.

Where did the Page Setup option go?

I see in the current Print Options, you have to go to - More Settings / Margin / Custom - to see those. Why would they put this so many levels down?

It used to be: File / Page Setup / Margins & Header/Footer . . . "Customize" Headers & Footers:

Option 1 (left) . . . there are two leading spaces:

 > > &T
 > > &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Option 2 (left) . . . get rid of the ">"s, and just have the two leading spaces:

 &T
 &U . . . &D . . . &PT
