Can Firefox be setup to always open in the same one location and not open in the prior location? I have multiple displays and I want Firefox to always open on the primary display. I often watch training videos and I run those on a second monitor but then if I want another Firefox window it opens over the video. I want it to always open on the main monitor and I'll move it if I want.

Firefox now opens a new window, rather than a new tab when I click on a bookmark or the +, or when I start a new download, regardless of Tabs settings in the Options General page. This is different from original behavior, and I have no idea what happened. How do I change back to Tabs rather than window?

Now, in the old Firefox, you used to be able to select "Email Link" to send a URL to someone by e-mail in your favorite e-mail client. I used to do that routinely, sending links via Thunderbird. I'm now using FF93.0, and all I see is "Share", which, when you point it to "Mail" it dumps you in Chrome. Now, in my FF prefs, I have specified Content Type->mailto->Use Thunderbird, so why it's dumping me in Chrome makes no sense.

How do I use Firefox to share a URL in Thunderbird like I used to be able to do?

I cant see the settings in Mozilla. It is a bright white. White color or lights blind my eyes.

Which link or icon does Mozilla have to change every color to a light blue or green or red to help a disabled vision American see the settings options then select the various colors for each part offered.

Until the page / settings is set to some colors I am shut down with this bright white. Thanks

Hello,

Hope you're all well and safe

I download a lot of images on Firefox for different purposes and most time I end up with 20 or so tabs to download from

This got me wondering if there's a way to use the "Save Image As..." context menu (right click) without having to specify the file name and destination directory each time

Can this be configured in Firefox? If not, are you aware of any add-on that provides such a feature?

Using Firefox 93.0 (64-bit) on Windows 10

Thanks in advance,

Regards, John

Because of the location where I live, most of google services are blocked on the internet. Yesterday I wanted to download a device driver from www.m-audio.com but the driver's page stopped loading. I noticed a message at the bottom left of the Firefox window saying "waiting for www.google.com" or something similar. Because of that wait, I could open the page only after 4 tries and waiting way too much time. Can I filter page contents from google so Firefox skips them?

I run Firefox with multiple profiles, as there are several people that use this computer. I start firefox with -p <profilename> -no-remote.

This all works fine except if I'm in try to open a link from for instance in an email, I click on the link and it opens the profile manager. If I select a profile that already has an open window I get an error message stating

"Firefox cannot use the profile "Rick" because it is in use. To continue, close the running instance of Firefox or choose a different profile."

Is there anyway to have it open the link in a new tab of an already running profile, rather then having to close the profile and then click the link.

HDD was failing in my other computer. Put in a new HDD and transferred bookmarks (FFox. 16.++ on both) but don't remember how to transfer my saved passwords. Some folks helped me with this when I rebuilt this PC (the one I am using to send this info), and I remember most of the path and method but not well enough to attempt it without some guidance. The other PC is an ASUS G50VT-X5 laptop.

Firefox website shortcut icons on my desktop now look like the first choice one sees when right clicking a shortcut icon , then left clicking "properties", and then clicking " change icon" -- they should look like a white square with the firefox logo in the center instead of a white square with a little box containing 3 tiny symbols.

I'm running XP Pro SP3

I just updated to the newest Firefox. I'm sad that the google toolbar is no longer supported. But I'll soldier on... <big sigh>.

Seriously though: The function I miss from google toolbar is the drop down menu in the search bar, allowing me to 'drop down' and reselect a previous search phrase... what can I say, I'm scatter brained and easily distracted, so I often return to a concept multiple times a week.

How can I emulate the same function in FF 17?

I have an Apple Mac (running MacOS 10.6.8) at a remote location. I want to be able to run Firefox on this machine but with the Firefox display window redirected to my local Mac. I used to be able to do this with UNIX (e.g. LINUX etc.) systems running X11 by setting the DISPLAY variable on the remote host. Is it possible to do this using the X11 on the Mac? and, if so, do I need to rebuild Firefox to display using X11? At the moment, whatever I try, Firefox just starts its window on the system on which it is started.

How do I get Firefox to check add-on compatibility first, then ask me if I want to continue the Firefox update? The update process currently only tells me that an add-on has been disable after applying the Firefox update. The Options > Advanced > Update tab switch, "Warn me if this will disable any of my add-ons", does not seem to work.
