I set winRegisterApplicationRestart to false. Firefox doesn't appear in the task manager startup programs list. There is no link to firefox in the startup folder. Nevertheless, firefox runs itself when I log on. How can I make it stop?

When I zoom in (with ctrl+= for example) images are rendered with heavy interpolation / blurring. Usually I want to see individual pixels as discrete, blur-less squares.

Is there any way to change it so Firefox renders without interpolation? I am using Firefox 71.0 Operating system: Linux Mint 19.3

TL;DR For a quick & dirty workaround to this issue a simple flag change in your about:config will save you some time and trouble. Without further ado:

  1. Navigate to about:config
  2. Search for browser.tabs.closeTabByDblclick
  3. Set value to True

@whalemonster had the same problem I was running into. Coming off of Brave/Chrome, I am use to being able to use the CTL-W (Win) CMD-W (Mac) shortcut to quickly close out pinned tabs. Like others out there, I find it cumbersome and time consuming to have to right click > find the menu I item I want > and then close the pinned tab. Yes, I do appreciate the ability to not accidentally close a pinned tab, but it would be great if we can use the Option key modifier on Mac as that added precaution/step to prevent accidental pinned tab closures. This way Firefox users can have the best of both worlds.

I was able to remove it buy downloading Malwarebytes and running it in safe mode Windows 10 desktop. Then after reboot to normal mode click reset Firefox 80. 09-06-20. had to re-add the title bar and Chrome folder in the profile to get my multi bookmarks toolbar back and tabs below search bar then since I was signed up with a Mozilla account for Firefox all the apps just loaded along with all the settings and bookmarks. I gotta hand it to ya Mozilla this is one sweet program and they have thought of everything. So don't get discouraged if you get hit sometimes because my Vipre Internet Security did not catch this since I had the check all open and closing folders Edge Protection off. Still the scan should have picked it up. It cost me $40 for a year of Malwarebytes but that's a cheep fix as far as I am concerned.

Why was 'Close tabs to the right' moved into a submenu?

Earlier, you could quickly close all tabs that I was done using by keyboard shortcuts 'Right Click' on Tab > 'i' > Enter This was a quick and very often used shortcut to close tabs to the right. Likewise for the 'Close other tabs' option.

But it's now moved inside a 'Close Multiple Tabs' menu. And this menu does not have a unique keyboard shortcut. It has M, which is also the shortcut for mute tab. So now when one needs to close tabs, it becomes 'Right Click' on Tab > 'm' > 'm' > Enter > Enter

Could this be changed so that either the keyboard shortcut for Close Multiple Tabs is not 'm', or that the close tabs options appear in the main menu on right click?

I cannot find a way to permanently increase the size of the fonts in the bookmarks toolbar. the fonts are so small I cannot read them. Why has firefox never addressed this issue? There has to be a reasonable way to do this and if not, why not?

And how about being able to change font size throughout the application?
