This does not occur on all websites, but it does happen on many websites. While I was researching in Mozilla for an answer, it did happen. If there is a link in a story, I right-click it, a drop-down appears, I select "Open in New Tab". The Tab does open. I can even see the "title" of the new tab, then, in about 1 second, the tab closes. Firefox did NOT do this on my computer until, about two weeks ago. Very frustrating. Thanks for the help.

Hi,

In the past I could adjust the buffer size of a website and how much data is being stored. Why is this removed? The most common size was 350 mb.

Now I have to spent time to empty the buffer by hand. I would like to bring it down to 0 mb so I dont have to empty the buffer by hand thru the settings.

Thank you for answering my question.

A couple of days ago, my Ghostery ad blocker stopped working on Firefox. Today, I found a closed Mozilla Support forum thread relating to add-ons failing on May 3, 2019 and that a fix was in the works. I verified that the Firefox Studies was turned on, but Ghostery is still down. Today is May 5 and Ghostery is nowhere to be found. I tried reinstalling it but all I get is an error message to check my connection. My connection is fine. I rely on Ghostery and without it, I feel exposed and tracked. Is there a fix or is this the end of my Firefox experience.

Hello,

is it possible to disable F11 key for enabling disabling full screen or set it to another combination like Alt + F11? My problem is, that i am using citrix html 5 client in firefox. Within the citrix session there is a terminal application where F11 is a special key which is needed. But unfortunatly whenever i use it also Firefox switches the full screen and then the citrix client adjusts the resolution which durates a few seconds. And thats really annoying. Using another key in the terminal application is not possible. The APplication uses F1 - F24 by double using the F1-F12 Keys.

Hi, I'm trying to get as much as possible of firefox to use dark theme to save my eyes at night.

I use https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/darkreader/ to customize the sites automatically and it does an excellent job, except that firefox pages can't be customized with it and by that I mean:

about:blank about:newtab about:config about:preferences

for the blank and newtab pages I found three solutions:

1- create a [userContent.css](http://kb.mozillazine.org/UserContent.css) file with the following

@-moz-document url-prefix(about:blank) {*{background-color:#000000;}}

@-moz-document url-prefix(about:newtab) {*{background-color:#000000;}}

2- go to about:config and change

browser.display.background_color to #000000

browser.display.foreground_color to #ffffff

3- Go to "Preferences" and search for "colors" click on the colors button and set the background and text colors to the same colors as in 2.

now I tried all of the solutions above and all of them have side effects, the most prominent and annoying one is flashing white page for a couple of seconds when opening a new tab or white page while the website, other annoyances is that the settings don't apply to about:config and about:preferences even if I add them in userContent.css

-To test the flashing white you only need to open a new tab (while applying my settings above) and you will see it.

-To the white page before the site is loaded you need to open the link from another page(if you open a new tab and then paste the link you won't get the white page since the about:blank or about:newtab will have the dark background)

so to see my problem do the following:

1- go to https://github.com/biesiad/deelay#deelayme

2- right click on deelay.me link and click "open link in a new tab"

the link will be opened in a new tab that has the background in white or grayish color.

How can I solve these problems ? any tip would be appreciated.

Regards

Hi,

I am in the Netherlands and by default, the Firefox that is downloaded from the main page is in Dutch. I dislike having my applications in Dutch so I tend to set them to English at the earliest opportunity but Firefox seems to be stuck somewhere halfway in between. Here's what I did/tried: - First downloaded the regular Firefox, set it up, changed the language to English in settings and went on setting up. After a number of tweaks and addon installs I restarted the browser. - The browser is now in what I would call Dunglish; the settings page and various other things are in English, but the menubar and various other standard controls are not, they are still in Dutch. - I went into about:config and changed the intl.locale.requested value to only say En-US, before it had NL tacked onto the end of that. No change. - I downloaded the language pack addon and restarted the browser. No change. - I downloaded the US version of Firefox and installed it on top of the other, Dutch, version. No change.

I'd really rather not remove my profile entirely and start from scratch as I've been working on setting it up just the way I like it for half a day now and I'd rather not redo all that. What can I do? So to summarize, I know of the language-specific browser version and installed it without results, I know of the article describing how to use Firefox in another language, I know of the language packs and I know of the intl.locale.requested variable already. None of these solutions have solved the problem. Thanks a lot for reading and for any help you can provide.

I want to change the "+" color on the new tab icon

I was able to do this for the close tab "X' icon with the following css code in my userChrome.css file.

.tabbrowser-tab .close-icon:hover {

  fill: white !important;
  background-color: red !important;
  border-radius: 4px;
}

I think this code should work for the new tab icon, however I don't know the name of the new tab icon.

Please help,

Thank you

This morning Adblock Plus was disabled in my browser.

the message n the EXTENSIONS PAGE reads: "Adblock Plus - free ad blocker could not be verified for use in Firefox and has been disabled".

I've been Adblock PLus using for years, on both my computers. And it still functions on my Windows 10 desktop. Is this because it is Windows XP? Can I do anything to reacivate it?

I tried to add Adblock Plus again on the computer - but that did not work either. I get a message that says: "Download failed. Please check your connection' - but I am using the connection without problems everywhere else!

I use Firefox Developer Edition as my main browser on a 64bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium. I recently updated the browser to version 66.0b6, and it appears to have completely killed support for Adobe Flash on the browser. I have checked the about:plugins page, and it shows no flash plugin installed. I have also attempted to install Flash multiple times by downloading it from Adobe's website. The installation claims to be completed without issue, but results in no changes in the plugins page, and no working version of Flash. Flash works fine on the other browsers on my system, and worked without issue in previous versions of Firefox. I am aware of security concerns with the Flash plugin, however considering there is a lot of older content on the internet that relies on the technology, completely disabling it with no way for users to manually enable it seems a bit excessive. Is this indeed what Firefox has done, or is there something wrong with my browser?

Thanks for the help.
