I d/l Total AV and added Total WebShield & Total Adblock as extensions to my browser. Now when I open Firefox, it won't open in full screen. If I disable the WebShield, it opens full screen. Are there compatibility issues? Can you advise on how to fix it? It's very annoying.

I am using a Windows computer. Is there a way to change the two finger swipe to go back (or forward) a webpage to a "THREE" finger swipe? Two finger swipes interfere with other things that I may be trying to do on a webpage. I often find myself scrolling through tables (using two finger scrolling) and then if I scroll too far in one direction it goes BACK to the last webpage I was on. This is super frustrating!

I know how to disable the two finger swipe using about:config. However, if it can be changed to a 3 finger swipe instead, that would be a huge help.

I notice that I sometimes have as much as 14 Firefox processes running at the same time, even though I only have one tab open.

E.g. just starting up produces 9 processes, consuming some 43% of memory! I see no way to limit the number of process in Settings->Performance (ALL "solutions" to this problem involve changing the "Content process limit", but that seems to have gone in the latest Firefox version?) What do I do?

I am using firefox on a debian installation base: $ firefox-esr --version Mozilla Firefox 91.13.0esr $ uname -a Linux debian 5.10.0-18-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.140-1 (2022-09-02) x86_64 GNU/Linux $ These days web pages come with all kinds of cr@p; so, at times you need to just get all the links inside the page to parse/eyeball them. What I do is grab the "page source" and/or use "Link Gopher". I have been noticing lately that they don't work anymore. Why? The problem seems to relate to javascript generated pages. When you try to see the source all you see is some javascript one liner.

Of course, firefox must have a way to show the source since it shows to you the actual page unencrypted. Which settings in about:config should you change in order to be able to "go to the source" again? lbrtchx

I have Firefox set to "view PDF files in Firefox", but this is not happening with sites like Capital One and Consumer's Energy. these sites are just saving directly to my downloads folder even though I 1) Want to view the file first and 2) if it is going to save a flle, it is set up to ask where the file should be saved.

Neither of these things are happening even though I have them set up correctly in Settings.

To whom it may concern,

Quite some time ago, not sure exactly how long but at least 8 - 9 years I had an account for making "persona's" as they were called back then. Today they appear to be referred to as "Themes" to which I have made many. I can see my persona's still exist from a long time ago however, I do not know how to access that account, it requires me to enter an email address, not the account login. To my knowledge I've only ever used one email address and this is for the later account used for making themes, can you please advise how I can access my old account when they were referred to as person's ?

The login for persona's is/was KEV007

The account I use now for themes is done using my email address [edited from public] @gmail.com

I am not aware of any other email address I could possibly have used !!

Regards Kevin
