Firefox, like most browsers, is full of jargon and terms which are never defined. So, for a new user, what should be simple become complicated. Developers obviously thought that everybody understands, but it is not true. It would be helpful if there was a term definition for each term and symbol used. I find my self in a kind of rabbit hole when trying to do things, and even when I ask for help, there is no term definition help.

For the last few days Firefox keeps dropping off as the default browser and seems to be defaulting to the Avast Secure Browser thats installed instead.

I keep changing it back via both Firefoxs settings and via Windows default settings but within 10 minutes it falls off again.

How can I make sure Firefox stays as my default browser?

Picture in Picture is an awesome feature and i love that Firefox comes with it by default.

However I do wish for one thing. So we can lock and "click through" the picture in picture, instead of our mice being able to click it by mistake when doing other things (such as grinding on an MMO or something.)

Is there any way to get these options in the near future? It'd be great to play some games when watching a video during slow times! Thank you!

Is there a way to set a separate theme for the private browsing option? I like being able to visually distinguish between the normal browser and the private one, but enabling a theme seems to set the same visuals for both.

If separate themes are not a thing, perhaps they could be added in a later update?

Thanks for all your time and effort.

I have a fresh install of Debian 12.5, which came with Firefox 115.7.0esr. Firefox is inconsistent in following the settings I put in. For example, I specified the download folder, but it still automatically saved to the original default folder. But when I clicked to ask me before downloading, it does! And it gives me the 1st option to save the the folder I specified. But if I uncheck the "ask me" button, it goes back to putting downloads in my home directory, which I don't want. Another example is I've set it to "open previous windows and tabs on startup", but it doesn't. When I close Firefox with several tabs open, the next time I start it I have just the home tab. Yet when I look in "settings" it still says it's supposed to be opening my previous tabs. This is more annoying than the download issue. How can I get Firefox to follow the settings, which ARE being saved?

Im currently reading books (pdfs) in firefox and I would like to hide the scroll bar. Im using full screen mode and especially the bar the the bottom is annoying while reading. I've seen a few topics posted about this issue but they are from a few years back and the solution posted doesn't seem to work anymore. (creating profile/chrome/userChrome.css with some code) But maybe the code is just outdated or I did something wrong. Im not too sure.

The best solution to me would be to just hide the bottom scroll bar. I didnt find any option in about:config except for making them (bottom and right) both thinner.

I would greatly appreciate any help.

Hi all, For the last few months I've had a persistent issue with my Firefox browser on Windows where I have to continually toggle the 'Ask to save passwords' option so that Firefox fills my username and passwords automatically, gives me the option to save them automatically and so on.

Everytime I click the option on, it works for maybe a few days before I have to yet again toggle it on even though I haven't done anything like close my Firefox window, restart my computer or any similar thing. My Firefox and laptop are also on their latest updates and regardless this issue has continued through multiple update cycles.

It is very frustrating as I'm applying for jobs regularly so manually having to use alternate ways to autofill my details is annoying - I know a password manager is probably the best solution but regardless this is still a very annoying issue.

I use the Mozilla Thunderbird email program and have just been overwhelmed by the number of "bookmarks" appearing under the "Bookmarks Toolbar." I don't want these additional bookmarks that I did NOT select. Moving them one by one is tedious--and I think new bookmarks are added to the toolbar if I delete any. How do I stop this? Is there a way to eliminate the added bookmarks in mass rather than singly? Thanks,

Hello,

I've recently uploaded a custom-made extension to the Chrome Web Store for my personal use and for a few specific users. It's currently awaiting review.

However, I'm encountering an issue where I cannot download and use the extension myself. When attempting to download, I receive the message "Download failed. Please check your connection."

Although I can see the extension listed on the store (since it's mine), I'm unable to use it personally.

Could you please assist me with resolving this issue?

Thank you.

Hi - Any advice would be welcomed. I've tried to create an account on a website that offers online courses. The 'create an account' form just simply didn't appear using Firefox as my browser. I eventually tried Microsoft Edge and the 'create an account' form was available straight away. Please can you advise if I am able to access this website using Firefox and how?

Many thanks

How to prevent Firefox from opening links in a non-default container

I'm using the Firefox Multi-Account Containers extension and it's great. I have a number of containers manually created and use them according to my personal preference. No sites are associated with containers via settings, it's always manual.

Among those containers there's one I use for all things Google (Gmail etc). Which was great, as it allowed me to use both my personal Google account and G-Suite integrated with the workplace's SSO by simply using a default container for work stuff.

I updated Firefox to version 127.0.1, after which I discovered that clicking on Google Docs links in external applications now opens a tab in that custom container I created for my personal use. Which is clearly inconvenient, as most Google Docs links I open are work-related, so my personal account has nothing to do with them. Opening same links from within Firefox, e.g. by clicking on a bookmark, still opens a default container tab.

As I mentioned, there are no explicit association between Google links and that container, the "Limit to designated sites" option is switched off.

Is there anything I can do to revert back to the old behaviour, which is opening every external link in a default container?
