I would like to target the whole of the main content pane in Firefox in order to overlay a visual filter on top of it.

Although websites can be altered with scripts and Firefox offers colour options in its preferences, these are imperfect workarounds that only target specific elements of the websites. Instead, I would like to overlay a translucent filter over the main content pane itself that would allow me to control the appearance (dimness, saturation, contrast) of the entire main content pane rather than individual elements of a website.

How would I do that? Which files, which code snippets?

Odd copy problem in Firefox that doesn't appear in Chrome

On this web page

https://www.univision.com/shows/la-reina-del-flow/resumen-de-la-reina-del-flow-capitulo-64-video

you'll find a transcription section (which occurs on many of these univision/shows pages).

When I copy the section in Firefox words flow together because the copy doesn't copy exactly. I have tried half a dozen different copy addons, disabled them, changed options, etc. But nothing gets better. Generally, all the line breaks disappear, but even when I've found an option that leaves line breaks in they are different than the line breaks in the transcription section.

On the other hand, if I load the page in Chrome and do a simple copy of the transcription section, everything works fine.

I would really rather not use Chrome, but I've spent several hours trying everything I can thinks of, and nothing works.

Example with Firefox: erick: y tú crees que lucio te puso el arma en la manoy disparó para incriminarte. yeimy: pero obvio, erick, si no,con la muerte manín, seguramente se está vengando.o bueno, eso es lo que alcanzo yo a pensar, es lo que seme ocurre porque no sé qué más puedo decir.¿y tú qué piensas? yeimy: es lo que te digo.pero dejemos que la policía aclare todo esto.charly: vamos a grabar la primera parte del video.irma: ¿cómo así que primera parte, charly?

NOTE: "mano" and "y" are joined as are "se" and "me". They shouldn't be. Älso many spaces after punctuation marks are missing. These transcriptions can be long, so multiple words get joined.

Example with Chrome: erick: y tú crees que lucio te puso el arma en la mano y disparó para incriminarte. yeimy: pero obvio, erick, si no, con la muerte manín, seguramente se está vengando. o bueno, eso es lo que alcanzo yo a pensar, es lo que se me ocurre porque no sé qué más puedo decir. ¿y tú qué piensas? yeimy: es lo que te digo. pero dejemos que la policía aclare todo esto.

I'm going nuts. Any ideas?

How to remove the Bookmark star from the URL address bar?

Hello, I need your help with removing a duplicate bookmark star from the URL bar, please. The thing is I already have moved it to the top left corner just as I prefer. However, the star in the URL field is impossible to kill. I have tried to use the customization menu but it does not allow me to drag off this annoying URL star. And, even if I right-click it in hope to find something like "remove/hide the Bookmark star" this star does not react to right-clicks. Also, after some research I have not found the way to do it via about:config :-( _

  Can you help me remove the star in the URL bar? The star in the top left corner though should stay because this is where I need it, but the star in the URL bar should go away.

PS this problem appeared after the "wonderful' June GUI redesign. Before that I was able to remove the star easily from the address bar. I am attaching a screenshot below:

I'm using Firefox 90.0.2 on Manjaro and I have an issue regarding Picture-in-Picture mode. Whenever I put a video into PIP, the second I click on another window, be it firefox itself or any other program, the PIP window will move behind that program's window.

I use PIP all the time on Windows but I've never experienced this issue. It only happens on Manjaro.

Hello,

   About a week or two ago Firefox started asking me for my master password about every ten minutes or so even though the browser has been running all along. I understand that it asks for it when I start up the browser and when looking at saved passwords but this is happening all day long even with the browser just being open all day. I don't typically close it unless I turn my computer off (which I rarely do)

Thank you for your input!

I'd guess there's already a discussion regarding this, but I don't know where. Getting rid of the borders when there are multiple tabs open and turning things gray makes for a far worse browsing experience for me. Why would one string of undifferentiated text in a long line of tabs make things any easier? It does not.

I've found a helpful site that allows turning off the new theme, but a commenter advises that that option too will soon be disabled: https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/

Is there an add-on that keeps the "classic" theme? I've googled how to provide feedback. One of those links is dead. What's the best way to make my thoughts known?

People love tech, but the older I get the more I see how it demonstrates a lack of ownership, that nothing is really yours on your devices, that what you're comfortable with is only one weekly update away.

I really dislike the look of the tabs in the newest version. A floating bubble, not connected to the page, for the active tab? And the inactive tabs are connected, but there is no separation between the tabs? Aside from uninstalling the latest version and installing a previous version, is there a way to restore the look of the previous version? Maybe an add-on? If I have to reinstall an old version I'll probably just switch over to a different browser.

Hi all,

i'm currently developing an add-on that has an import from file feature that needs to open an "Open file" dialog, now the problem is that in order to do that i had to do the following:

  • inject some javascript code in the active page as a content script
  • call the execute command from the extension to open the dialog popup (that is actually emulating a click)

I have to do it, because from an extension when a "File open" dialog appear, the extension lose the focus and it is automatically closed, and its context destroyed, so when i actually press open on the dialog, the "caller" is already gone (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/26884140/open-import-file-in-a-chrome-extension/26917671#26917671 you can refer to my stackoverflow question to get an idea of what i was doing)

This works fine in chrome (And it worked for a while on firefox) but probably in the latest months/years (not sure when it happened) it stopped working and when i press the import button nothing happens, after some investigation i found what is the problem: the "block popup" windows option enabled by default (i suppose it is enabled by default i don't remember to have never enabled it), so when i disable it, the feature resume working. What i'm wondering is if there is a way to programmatically add an exception to the popup blocker option while installing the extension, or if there is any way to avoid closing the exception popup when the "File Open" Dialog appears.

Thanks everyone
