I'm using freshly-downloaded Firefox version 102.2 on a brand new laptop (Windows 11 Pro version 21H2), and every single extension is showing a "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt" message when I try to install. I have tried checking for updates, quitting and reopening firefox, restarting my computer, refreshing firefox, uninstalling and reinstalling firefox, as well as any and all combinations of those. I've scoured these message boards and nothing is working for me. Please help!

Hi, good day/evening you all. Hey with a temporary disability I have a real need to limit my mousing and would love to see a feature request I could give a thumbs up on -- for the 3 line menu at the top right being accessible via keyboard. (Also at least some of the choices on it such as History via a hotkey -- after I have the main menu open. By the way I know about pressing Alt, then any of the hotkeys on the old school hidden menu bar -- I'm instead talking about the new always visible hamburger menu icon.)

Where would I search to see if there's been any discussion or progress on that? Bugzilla?

Sorry I'm new to this type of questioning. Any tips would be greatly appreciated and my body would appreciate it too! :-)

Hello, I have been using Firefox as my main browser for more than a decade. One could say i am some Mozilla fanboy, having convinced many of my friends and relatives to use Firefox instead of any chrome based options (Which there are to many these days). It struck me today, as i was reworking some workflow elements in many programs i use daily, that it is impossible to change any key binding in Firefox anymore. I know it has been a while now, and i searched all over the web for an answer or a solution, but at this point it is clear that other than going in the code and recompiling Firefox manually, it is not possible. I stumbled upon the (only) extension that allows to change some shortcuts, but the two that i wanted to change are impossible to configure from it, being disabling only f12 as i would use it for other things but i do not want to lose the dev console and also ctrl+L to open the address bar, it is quite inconvenient and would much prefer to use ctrl+spacebar as it matches many other bindings i am using with other software. There have been many other features that were changed in the recent years that made me start to look for an alternative, as i see features melting away almost as quickly as the user base of the product.

I do understand that one person's problem is not going to change the way a big piece of software is working, but i am wondering, why are the users losing such features as basic as customizing key bindings in a piece of software that used to be so incredibly customizable in the past? Why is the only viable option to anything chrome based losing it's edge over the competition? Is Firefox v150 be based on the chromium engine or will it die before?

Thank you in advance, and no, i don't need the link to the shortcut page, i already have it.

i had a big problem with windows 10 action center (it won't open at all) only one solution was creating new Microsoft profile and move all files from one to another (including downloads documents desktop and whole appdata folder with firefox inside included)

and theoretically all works fine. I have my firefox account, history, tabs, favorites, theme and plugins, but they have blank icons and doesn't work.

is there any way to automatically redownload and reinstall plugins?

I would like to add that I have 3 browsers (profiles) and different plugins in each.

I changed the header/footer in about:config, but the changes will not save. Every time I change them, they revert to something else. I need &T for headerleft, &PT for headerright, &U for footerleft and &D for footerright. Invariably it changes all the headers to &U, footerleft to &P, and footerright to &D. My only thought is that I haven't saved the updates properly. Please help! ~AM

Hi, I've just reinstalled my firefox browser and I have some issues: - I can't install ANY add-on, even the ones from Mozilla Firefox itself, I get the message "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt." on all of them - I can't add another language on my browser and get an error message "Firefox can't update your languages right now" - The screenshot option doesn't work, on any page

I have already tried deleting and removing all data from Firefox, and reinstalling it again but it doesn't work. I'm really at a loss with what to do.

Thanks
