I wanted to change my History preferences to "Firefox will never remember history." After I select that, it prompts me to restart Firefox and I do. But when it boots back up, none of my add-ons are visible on the toolbar. I tried to restore customization settings back to default and uninstalled and reinstalled all of the add-ons but none of that worked. They all come back and function as soon I change the History preferences back to "Firefox will remember history."

My question is, is this normal Firefox behavior or is this a bug? If it's normal and I'm missing and obvious detail, please let me know.

I hope this is appropriate here. If not, please direct me to where it is.

As new releases of Firefox (and Thunderbird too) come out, a constant question for me is whether the add-ons that are important to me (I use a lot) will be compatible with the new release. It would help if

(1) The Add-Ons web site always allowed me to specify release and OS. Sometimes that is allowed, sometimes not.

(2) The Add-Ons web site allowed me to specify a release before which I don't want to see add-ons listed.

(3) The Extensions page in Firefox allowed me to ask which of my extensions (enabled and/or disabled) are supported/not supported in a specified future release.

(4) When Firefox wants to install a new release, it reported on extensions that would become incompatible and always asked my permission to go ahead.

It probably would not be necessary to do all of these things, but I included them all because I don't know which are the most practical.

In seems in the last month, the ability to open links in a new tab by middle-clicking has been removed by default. I was able to get it to work in Windows (but I don't remember how), but not in Ubuntu. I've got browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick set to true in the about:config. I've also tried restarting with all the add-ons disabled.

In settings I've found font settings. My default font is DejaVu (Serif, Sans, Mono)

After changing font (type and size) noting is going on. Even after restart. I disabled option to let wep pages set their own font.

The most important thing for me is to have working "Minimal font size".

To sum up. I can change everything in advanced font settings but there is no result on web pages.

Don't you think that if browsers rehabilitate a native "RSS one click subscribe" feature, with better UX (RSS actions/reader nicely integrated to the browser) it could revolutionize the way we subscribe to content updates, removing the need to rely on emails/newsletters in a lot of cases (then being more eco-friendly)? Users would receive content updates notifications directly in the browser, their feeds being synchronized through their browser account, etc.

Web developpers would just have to place subscription buttons: <input type="subscribe">

And a W3C Standard would unify how browsers should implement the "Subscription" feature, focusing on UX (I feel this is the point influencing usage data for the most part, RSS still being a tech-savvy thing).

Feeds handling was removed in 2018 in Firefox.

I am writing second time because something bugged and 10 mins of my text is gone...

Is there a way to stop video on page faster than rmb on every video and then controls and then when play/pause button is visible with other info like video lenght lmb on video to pause it? Like forcing browser to show video controls like this on every video on a page would be really nice because i often show controls to check how long video will be. Shouldn't it be like on youtube where you can see video controls just by moving your mouse over it and it auto dissaper after you stop moving it? Also there is really annoying bug or something, sometimes videos won't auto pause when i scroll down, and on pages with infinite stuff like 9gag it is really troublesome, you have to rmb then controls then lmb to stop it. Prevent videos from auto playing setting isn't working at all.
