Dear Mozilla Community,

I would like to suggest you to make built in adblocker in Firefox. For example Opera have this feature so we don't need install any extension. People from Mozilla read subjects in support.mozilla.org? If not where I can send my suggestion?

P.S. I wanted to install Adblock Plus extension but I am afraid about safety so better option is to make built in adblocker to protect from malware. I think that this can be direction in good way.

Yours faithfully, Piotr

Hi i would like to know how i can change the font size of my Firefox Menu.

i already change the size of the layout whit "layout.css.devPixelsPerPx" but it didn´t change the font size of the tabs or the menu. i did some research and found the userCrome.css technique to change some fonts sizes. i already change the font size of the address bar, PopMenu and tabs. But when it comes to the Main Menu, and bookmarks the font still in the same size. i also try changing the fonts size on preferences but nothing has been working.

i guess there must be a simple command line to add in the userCrome.css file to fix this but i can find it.

if some of you can help me i will appreciate very much.

i am working on a linux machine. thank you very much

How can I access the Description text field that disappeared from the Firefox bookmarks “Library” window in some relatively recent release (a year or so ago maybe)?

Highlighting any bookmark in the “Library” window currently displays only a “Name”, “Location”, “Tags” & “Keyword” field in the bottom of the window's RH pane but it used to also display a larger, 5th text field called Description (or something similar). Likewise, highlighting any bookmark folder in the “Library” window currently only displays a “Name” field but it used to also display a Description field.

This bookmark Description field was invaluable in storing text notes on what a given bookmark was useful for and, equally importantly, what it wasn't useful for (i.e. when to use a different bookmark). If one has hundreds of bookmarks, this type of information cannot adequately be captured in just the “Name” & “Tags” fields.

Hi, Once upon a time, when restarting a session, closed with some pages still open, Firefox was proposing the list of all pages that were open at the termination moment, asking to CHOOSE which pages we wanted in this new session. That feature was very very useful, allowing a fast closing, and a 'meditated' and comfortable restart.

Now, from a couple of years, it seems that the only choice is to have back ALL the pages again, or none... Is maybe this useful old setting hidden somewhere ? Thank you for your help... I find irritating loosing features in updates !

Searching for non-ascii characters will also match normalized ascii counterparts, leading to too many false positive matches.

For example, searching for the character "å" matches both "a" and "å" on the page.

We should be able to configure whether to normalize the characters or to use strict matching.

Hi all,

I've been having this issue for a few days now, I've tried to uninstall, re-scan, reboot my pc and reinstall Firefox but they still PERSIST!! Every time I open firefox for the first time after turning on my pc, Avast pops up with the malware warnings. I've used Avast, Malwarebytes and AdwCleaner but nothing seems to be working. I've disabled and uninstalled the ad-ons as well.

I'm not sure how else to remove the malwares because it seems to be running from "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe".

Please help.

Hey, I cannot, for the life of me, get to a point where I can delete individual bookmarks. I have researched all avenues and fixes here on the forum, and NONE seem to help out. Sync is not on. I have tried removing the places.sqlite, rebooting Firefox, then putting the places file back into the profile.

Verifying integrity gives me this: > Task: checkIntegrity - Unable to check places.sqlite integrity: Error: Error(s) encountered during statement execution: > Task: invalidateCaches - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: originFrecencyStats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

But I don't know how to remedy this "error".

I have tried to restore bookmarks, but that just erases ALL bookmarks, leaving the folders in place.

Any suggestions would be very appreciated! Thanks

I finally turned off the menu bar some time back and started using the Bookmarks Menu Button (the little star with an underline). With v89, the dropdown menu from this is huge. The fonts are a lot bigger than in v88, and for some reason, there are now two "Manage bookmarks" items, one at the top and one at the bottom. Is there any way, either official or through userChrome.css, to choose a small font? I already have a userChrome.css that I used to remove items from the old Bookmarks menu on the menu bar, but those don't apply to the BM Button.

looking on my iPhone, under passwords, there are many sites that say password has been compromised and to change it. The only way this could happen, I think, is if somebody got my Firefox password. Now if they did, they would still have to get my master browsing password, which is different and more complex. Is it possible to extract passwords from my account without knowing the master password?

When I try to print from Firefox 88 on my Mac Laptop running OSX 10.12.6 the new print preview window takes a very long time to load the preview before I can print. I could not find a work around.

I tried switching to the Classic print system via (print.tab_modal.enabled - False) Now I don't have the preview to deal with so I can print immediately like I used to. However, if I try to open a PDF in Preview from the Print Dialog window, it takes a very long time to load the preview which it did not do in earlier versions of Firefox.

I am surmising that one of the Firefox updates added the print preview function which doesn't work quite right on my Mac.

Any ideas would be appreciated. Andy

I have checked a few times over a period of weeks in settings, General section, the box marked as - Always check if Firefox is your default browser is checked. Underneath this line I see one line with a smiley icon indicating it is NOT.

I have no idea why this line continues to be displayed. Anyone have any thoughts? I can find no info on this issue.. thanks Brian

Hi,

I have decided to ditch Google as much as possible, and come back to Firefox. I always had a tinge of guilt for going over to Google, but that's another story.

The page load times for Chrome are averaging about 1 second. for Firefox they are between 10 and 40 seconds.

OOB does Firefox need any setting changes to make it load pages faster ? I've compared page loads on pages I havent visited before, so no browser cache settings should affect loading times.

Here is some data to back this up.

System : OS Windows 10 Pro - Version 10.0.19043 Build 19043 All latest updates as of 20 April 2021

HW AMD Ryzen 9 3900x CPU X570 Aorus Motherboard 64GB DDR4 3200MHz 3090 Nvidia RTX GPU All PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSDs

Firefox : 88.0 (64-bit) - About Box says "Up to Date" Chrome : Version 89.0.4389.114 (Official Build) (64-bit) - latest on stable channel

3 x Arbitrary URLs to load a. https://calgary.ctvnews.ca/alberta-doctors-find-2nd-case-of-blood-clot-linked-to-astrazeneca-vaccine-in-canada-1.5391531 b. https://www.bbc.com/ c. https://www.usa.gov/

Clear Cache before going to web site Choose web sites I had not visited before on this computer

Load times for Chrome in MILLI seconds a 1178(ms) b 1321(ms) c 914(ms)

Same pages loaded in Firefox in SECONDS a 40.65 seconds b 10.38 seconds c 8.33 seconds

Ping and Internet Connection settings Ping 2ms Download 854.16 Mbps Upload 821.35 Mbps

Both browsers have no plugins loaded (except the page time load plugin).

Even if the plugin is telling me the wrong times, I can tell that the times are roughly correct by watching the page load, ie Chrome takes about a second to load most pages, Firefox is taking about 10-40 seconds.

I presume I must have some kind of setting that's wrong somewhere, but this is OOB, so are other people experiencing this kind of latency ?

Thanks
