This seems to be an issue with Windows (running 10 Pro) on my laptop, but I'm hoping someone can help. In Windows notification settings, I can select some programs/apps, for which Windows will allow notifications (see screenshot). Firefox is not listed among these, although Opera is. I've been hoping that one of the recent Firefox updates would fix this, but that hasn't happened. I do have notifications enable in Firefox, but those notifications aren't getting through to Windows.

Anyone know how to solve this? Thanks!

How to remove close icon from tabs?

I finally gave a newer version of FF a try after sticking with 56.0.2 for a long time. Before I go back to 56 again, how do I get rid of the close icons on the tabs? Or at the very least make it so that only the foreground tab has a close icon.

I got so used to having ONE close icon at right end of my tab bar and now, even after two weeks after leaving FF 56, I'm constantly closing the wrong tab because even background tabs have close icons on them ... and I keep clicking the one at the right end of my tab bar.

I'm on the verge of going back to FF 56 anyway to get back other customization options. Whether or not I can fix this close-icon-on-every-tab issue is going to be the determining factor.

I am using Firefox 64 on Mac OS X Mojave. I am using the default dark theme, and whenever I try to open a new tab or window, the browser window flashes white for a fraction of a second. I would like to get rid of this seeing that it is annoying and negates the benefit of using a dark theme. I have tried every solution online involving userChrome/userContent but no solutions have worked (except using a private window). Please advise, thank you.

I'm running Firefox Quantum 64 bit on my Windows 7 system. Earlier today I had to to remove the annoying goawesome5 virus and then start Firefox fresh. It started fresh alright, all my settings were gone, so I had to manually edit Firefox to my liking again.

I thought I was done, but I keep getting that annoying Youtube message that it's using the full screen now, hovers around for a few seconds, then disappears. I've look for solutions on the boards, but couldn't find any. I tried to fix it in about:config, like here: http://puu.sh/CrEeT.png, but nothing seems to work.

Can anyone help?

Pretty much what the title says - I always have a scrollbar on new tab page, whether or not the content fits in the viewport. It's not so obvious with light theme, but with dark theme there's a glaringly obvious light (greyed out, because it does nothing) scroll bar. I'm fairly confident this shouldn't be here, but not sure why it is.

Dear Community,

I recently switched back to FF from chrome and I really love it. There is one thing I cannot get to work though: I would like to have google as default search engine but without country redirect. In Chrome this is done by using https://www.google.com/search?q=%s&pws=0&gl=us&gws_rd=cr as search engine. What is the equivalent in FF?

Thanks in advance!

I lost all my bookmarks despite the Firefox refresh saying all bookmarks, etc would be saved. Also, the appearance of the page was greatly simplified and I couldn't locate things/icons I had used for years with Firefox, and didn't know how to use the new page.

I think Mozilla should make clear to none technical older users like me that when you refresh: everything will change and you may lose bookmarks accumulated over years, etc. There is no way I would have refreshed if they had made that clear.

I tried the help pages but that led me to pages I didn't understand or couldn't find what they said I would find.

Amongst other things, how do I (simply) get all my bookmarks back?

Does this refresh mean I have lost other things too??

Thank you, John

When I'm looking for something on a web page, I can enter the virgule key (/) or use control-F to search for a pattern on the page.

However, if I type a pattern that doesn't exist on the page the box turns red and lets out a beep noise. This gets really irritating. I've searched, and I can't find a setting to shut this off in Firefox.

I'd hate to have to blacklist my speakers, because there are other applications where I use the beep, I just don't like it in firefox.

So to elaborate, when a tab is muted, the "unmute" button icon is situated right next to the "close tab" button. I always keep everything muted unless i specifically want to hear sounds from for example youtube, occasionally facebook and the like. These buttons are way too close to each other and i keep clicking either one i don't want to click at the time by accident again and again. I want the unmute button to go away forever, i can just rightclick and use that menu for unmuting. Every time i try to bring my issue onto the "almighty" google, it's always unrelated, and no, the setting of browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon to false in about:config does not do anything since it's not the audio playing icon, but the unmute icon that's the problem.

Any related wisdom is appreciated.
