I'm trying to move away from using Google, so I swapped to Duckduckgo and removed Google as a default search. However, "Search with Google" is still appearing in my search suggestions bar with a pin icon in the corner, and I can't figure out how to remove it. Does anyone know how to do this?

I was browsing a webpage that turned out to be in Portuguese, and I was looking for how to translate it, but the internet indicated that Firefox has built in transation! However, neither the Translate Toolbar Icon nor the Translate menu option appear, even if I visit a site that absolutely should be translatable (https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla_Firefox)

Additionally, if I go to Settings -> General, there is a Translations section, but if I click the Settings button, there are no languages in any of the boxes and no option to add any.

I am on Firefox 126.0 for Windows.

Here are the things I have tried:

  • Restarting Firefox
  • Rebooting my PC
  • Disabling all my extensions
  • Running Firefox in Troubleshooting Mode
  • Clearing my Startup Cache
  • Performing a "Refresh Firefox"
  • Toggling and Untoggling browser.translations.enable and browser.translations.automaticallyPopup

Does anyone have any suggestions of something I could have missed?

I am forced to switch over to the browser Brave, have been a true Firefox supporter but am unable to change the background from dark back to light, this has nothing to do with the computer desktop settings since Brave, Edge and Google Chrome all are still running with the light background. Please help since I find this unacceptable, have problems reading with the dark background. Regards, Art.

Firefox's website appearance settings include a setting to force a light theme, force a dark theme, or to have sites automatically adapt to the theme of the browser. I feel that's not exactly what I want. I don't want the browser's theme to have anything to do with themes of the sites I'm viewing, nor to force light or dark. I think I'd rather just use the site's default, or if not that, set a theme on the site itself. Is there any way for Firefox to just not meddle in a site's theming at all?

I kinda just don't want any connection between the theme of my operating system, the theme of my browser, or either of those and the theme of websites, and none to force a theme on any of the others. I'm not sure why that seems so desirable nowadays, but I don't want it.

Trying to recover from a hard drive crash. Had to buy a new desktop with Windows 11 Pro (looking to be a bad move). I downloaded/updated to Firefox 126.0 (maybe also looking to be a bad move).

Have my last "working" userChrome file (it took me weeks to perfect this to my needs).

I am looking for: C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>\

but there is no "AppData" folder. And there is no existing userChrome.css file, anywhere!

Is the functionality I am looking for a thing of the past?

Is Firefox not completely supported by Windows 11?

If so, what is the last version of Firefox that will still support userChrome.css?

Opening .ics files in google calendar not working

I want firefox to open a .ics file in google calendar rather than the "Use Calendar (default). I've already run the script linked here : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1196085 to register the webcal protocol handler.

The webcal It shows up in the Settings / Genera / Applications list See attachment "Webcal.jpg.

But earlier in the applications list, there is a "Calendar" entry that only allows me to go to the "Use Calendar (default) or ask or save. See attachment Calendar.jpg

It seems like Firefox uses the Calendar entry before it gets to the webcal entry and so it always opens the default windows calendar application.

Help! How do I get firefox to use the webcal entry and not the calendar entry.

Thank you.

I must utilize a radiology based website application that works best in Firefox. I utilize 3 monitors on my system and have Firefox browser working on Monitor #3. Unfortunately Firefox opens the popup windows in Monitor #1. I cannot find a setting anywhere that would force it to open the popups on the monitor that is running the Firefox browser. I do not have this issue with Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome just this browser. I only use Firefox for this application because of this. However, I must use it 4-5 hours a day and this is extremely annoying. Is there any way to fix this issue? In today's technology and the fact that most of us use multiple monitors, I would think this browser would be up-to-date in its options and ability to handle this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I basically hate exclamation marks. I want to hide them. They are mainly in ads, in pages contents, everywhere. Buy! Do! Now! It is most disturbing character and it should be forbidden in non-meaningful manners. Years ago I saw such extension but I lost it due to many Firefox updates, which disabled some of them.

Some stupid admakers go wild and put it in end of every button and line.

Please help

Is it possible to configure whether Okta SSO can be configured per container as opposed to globally? I know the Microsoft SSO Integration is per container but it seems the Okta integration is all containers by default.

It requires modifying the below in about:config

network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris

https://help.okta.com/en-us/content/topics/directory/ad-dsso-configure-browsers.htm

It would be ideal to be able to turn off this integration per container so multiple accounts could be used ie: personal, work, etc as opposed to having to go into Private Browsing.

Since an update from a few days ago (May 2024), my address bar/search bar is now basically outside of my PC screen, see here: https://vimeo.com/948314161

It's not a local problem, it's also happening on other PCs/Laptops I have.

How can I fix this? PS should the answer be that I need an add-on or anything like that, then it's bye bye Firefox, hello Chrome

There is the same extension in the list of your browser extensions... but it doesn't give an alarm if the site changes. For example, I want the plugin to give me an alarm when I receive an email, or if the price of a product on the site changes, the plugin will give me an alarm. Help me please Thanks
