Hi,

I was previously using Windows 11 with Firefox, and changed back to Windows 10 as W11 has way too many issues on lot of points. But there was one thing I liked in Firefox on W11 is the scroll bars. They were narrow and discreete, and expanded when I hover with the mouse. I prefer that over the wide and very flat Windows 10 bar.

Is there a way to get this new bar on Windows 10 ?

Thanks in advance for your help, have a great day.

I can enter addresses manually but it does not save them automatically. I went through and enabled everything I could find but still only the one address I entered manually. Another option I tried to find is importing the addresses from chrome but I only found this option for logins and passwords.

I am using mozilla firefox on windows 10.

I sometimes fat finger ctrl+shift+w or ctrl+shift+q which closes the browser instead of just closing the tab which I indented.

Is there a way to disable these 2 key binds?

The mute icon only shows on hover and takes up 50% of the tab size so I'm constantly accidentally muting tabs without realizing it and silencing video calls and the like. The top Google result for this issue -- rightfully yelled in all caps because this is an absolutely horrid UX -- says to set browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon to false, but that does absolutely nothing in FF 100.0

Hi! I have set this option pdfjs.externalLinkTarget to 2, but despite that setup, all PDFs are open in the same tab of the PDF download link, that's a problem for me because, for instance, my home banking account losses the session if anything external is loaded, so when I click Firefox back arrow, the home banking session expires.

How can I set to open PDFs in Firefox in new tab?

Thanks!

Several months back, for some unfathomable reason, you eliminated GoodSearch as one of the eligible default search engines users can select. Given its squeaky-clean reputation and charitable nature, I can't for the life of me understand WHY. And just how much begging and grovelling will it take to persuade you to restore it to the available options?? *P*L*E*A*S*E*!!!!!!!

P.S. Making this contact form so damned hard to find isn't exactly endearing, either.

I am trying to set the mailto content type in the General --> Application section, but I get no search result when searching for it. Has that content type been removed from Fx100?

(I have the email client I want, Thunderbird, presumably since that is set in Windows to handle email. But I need a screenshot of the Settings page for a support KB article I am translating Change the program used to open email links.

Updating to version 98.0 onwards Firefox has started saving a copy of every pdf file I view (open) in my downloads folder.

My settings have not changed:

Tools->Settings->General->Applications: - pdf (application/download): Always ask - pdf (application/force-download): Always ask - pdf (application/pdf): Use Adobe Acrobat DC - pdf (application/x-download): Always ask

And when the "ask" dialog pops up, I choose "open".

I have tried all standard methods/troubleshooting, including resetting the handlers.json file.

The only way to avoid getting a copy in the downloads folder is if I choose "Open in Firefox" (application/pdf) instead of "Use Adobe Acrobat DC".

Any solution to this?

Thanks Michael

Hi, I'd like to disable that annoying animation when going to fullscreen (by hitting F11). Supposedly, setting the following should work:

Go to about:config

Set: full-screen-api.transition-duration.enter 0 0 full-screen-api.transition-duration.leave 0 0 full-screen-api.transition.timeout 0 full-screen-api.warning.delay 0 full-screen-api.warning.timeout 0

Restart

However, this does not have any effect in Firefox 94.0 on Ubuntu. Is this a bug/regression? Or is there some other way to disable the animation?

I have been successfully using FireFox for many years, recently we downsized into a Condo,now 81 years young. I have FireFox as my default browser choice, but it only lists Google on the search bar, when I type in my search in the box under the Firefox name it immediately jumps up to the top of the page Google browser.

How do I get back my screen to use FireFox as my search engine ?? I have tried to change it but will only give me two options Google or Google ?? Is it possible to go back to the screen and try and start again??

Many thanks to anyone who will give me info as to how to rectify my problem, be gentle with me as I am efficient in using the computer but less so trying to solve my problems. Robin
