I am able to find the mailto setting easily. However, there are no clients listed to choose from, no gmail, yahoo, nothing. If I click "choose other" I'm expected to choose an application from my computer. I just want to be able to click a mailto link and have it go out through a new tab via my existing, free, yahoo mail account.

I'm wondering where the buttons for extensions/add-ons have their locations stored? I.e. I might have a tab-renamer extension button on one row, and firefox relay, privacy mode, and adblocker on another row. Obviously what row and what positions in the row the buttons occupy(relative index perhaps) are stored, but where?

Preamble: for most of the day I have Firefox open with several tabs. For a specific project I want Firefox open with one tab showing a specific webpage. At the same time I don't want to delete the existing tabs in the existing instance of Firefox - I want to keep them running in the background. Question: how do I create a desktop shortcut which opens a new single instance of Firefox with a single tab showing a specific URL ?

Running WIN10. I have used FF w Google for about 20 years, and always had new searches open in same window, new tab. Following recent refresh of FF, that seems to be not possible. Links open in new tab, but not searches. In about:config the browser.search.openintab setting is True

I have closed and reopened FF, and closed and reopened WIN10.

What might be over-riding this? Many thanks!

I previously had the NoScript extension. I disabled it in preferences and restarted Firefox. It seems like one of these moz-extension:// windows were open at the time, so when I try to launch Firefox, it tries to re-create moz-extensions:// windows and dies.

I can’t start Firefox. I can’t start Firefox in --safe-mode. I’m happy to provide any debug info needed.

Release after release Firefox is adding more shortcuts, which is nice, but it also interferes with shortcuts people use to enable/disable extensions.

Is there a way to completely disable a given Firefox shorcut without having to rebuild it? Ideally Firefox should have a friendly way to change that (UI or config file), but I accept editing binaries files.

Also, why extensions with shortcuts like Shift+D are treated as invalid and get removed?

My Firefox (Windows 10) updated to 105.0 this morning. I have https://www.google.co.uk/ as my homepage and Firefox always used to focus on the Google webpage search bar on startup.

Now it focuses on the address bar instead (i.e. https://www.google.co.uk/ is selected). How can I make it focus on the webpage search bar on startup again instead?

I already found this thread from last year https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1334131 and tried changing browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar to false but it didn't have any noticeable effect and the issue is still present.

Many thanks.

See abstract. Updated to Firefox V105.0 today, and now the cursor starts in the address bar, instead of the search box middle of the page. I have tried that "about:config handoff" fix and it doesn't work for me. I think this is about the third or fourth time we have lost the "cursor starts off in the search box" functionality in the last few years, after a Firefox update. Can you code writers leave it in the search box? Please?

The hotkey for add-on "600% sound volume" has been broken since the last version of 103. (now 105.0 still not fixed) The hotkey is "Ctrl+Shift+v", which opens the pop-up window of the add-on, and then it allows using arrow key and number to tweak the volume bar. Now all hotkey not working. The arrow keys do not work even if you manually open the pop-up window.

Setting `widget.non-native-theme.enabled` to false no longer works; I still get Firefox's default styling for controls and widgets.

I use a custom GTK3 theme in my environment that I want to apply to Firefox. The above setting works in 91 ESR, and broke with the upgrade to 102 ESR.

A custom user chrome stylesheet would be too painful.

Note: You can revert page styling to defaults in View -> Page Style -> No Style.

Hello!

I'm using Firefox MSIX on a laptop with an OLED screen. To avoid burn-in, static elements on the screen are discouraged.

Unfortunately, when the Reader View is enabled on Firefox, a vertical toolbar appears and is constantly on the same spot on the screen.

I would like to have this toolbar disabled or have it to hide/show depending on mouse prompt. Is there a built-in setting I could change to make this happen?

Would this solution here be my only option and would it work on Firefox MSIX? Finding the firefox profile on the Microsoft Store app is tricky.

Thank you.

I just upgraded to a 4k monitor and the blinking cursor is so thin I can not see it. I have adjusted the thickness in windows 10 with took care of the issue with Microsoft applications but I can't figure out how to make it thicker in Firefox.

I've tried changing from Firefox theme to System theme but there was no change. Fonts is set to Segoe UI 17.

I have System theme -- auto enabled.

Any suggestions?

My new Windows 11 laptop forces me to use the "Mail" app to forward links by email using the "email a link to this page" utility feature in the Firefox toolbar Prior to this, my old laptop would just use Outlook which was quicker/better.

The multi-step method using Mail was cumbersome so in trying to designate Outlook as the sending vehicle over Mail, I designated a non-performing solution which is now preventing me from emailing links (and captured webpage info) at all. I would like to migrate back to Mail or find the correct choice for Outlook but the "email a link to this page" in the Firefox toolbar does not work now as a result of my poor choice.

Anyone know how to fix this? I have "restored factory defaults" and other on the toolbar features but does not help. This was apparently an unrevocable choice.
