I was using Kesselberg's Conex add-on for years because it most closely approximated the functions of the old Tab Groups in Firefox. It worked great until the latest Firefox update, but now it's broken, and he hasn't updated it since 2019, so I think it's a dead project at this point.

I've tried Simple Tab Groups and found it pretty useless for my purposes. I've been experimenting with Tab Stash and it's a little better, but still really not what I want.

I want something at least similar to Conex: an icon up top that I click to get a dropdown menu of all of the groups that I've set up, maybe with a search box to find tabs that I've forgotten which group they're in.

Does anyone know of anything like this that still works?

I have created a custom 'userChrome.css' file that I want to distribute to all users ex: user's xxxxxxx.default directory and the .css file placed inside with the modifications.

I can do it if i copy the file manually, but i need to do it automatically.

What am I missing?

Thanks.

The proton changes might make for a better smartphone experience, but it really trashes operations on computers. In case you are wondering why firefox's share of the browser market continues to slide, upgrades like "proton" are the main reason.

I had an internet addiction so to cut my impulsive triggers I need to change website behavior. Sure I know there is plenty of extensions but I don't want to install something for just creating one rule.

Candidate solutions - userscript options - about:config options

Restrictions - cross platform - browser level

Is there something? Thank you.

Can you make the address bar not add autocomplete suggestions in the address bar where you're typing, but still put the suggestions dropdown list right below the address bar?

I know you can do a workaround every time you use the address bar but I use address bars dozens or hundreds of times a day and I would like the address bar to work like I want without having to do dozens or hundreds of workarounds a day.

Hi! So, I just wanted to ask, is there any way to change the background in Firefox's "New Tab"? I think it is better to have something different instead of a blank and light/dark background.

I would love to find out, because Google Chrome has that feature, but I still wanna use Firefox.

See you later and thanks for any help!

In Ubuntu 18.04, I bring up a new page, click in the search bar in the middle of the page. Then when I start typing it jumps to the address bar although I have already placed and preferred the search bar to the right. No! NO! NO!

I use Duck Duck Go but Google does the same.

It is bad enough that the upgrade was automatically loaded but on top of that, changing preferences including dumping my home page. Change privacy settings without asking ( to a lower level on top of that ).

Really POOR form.

Hi Guy's, loving Firefox. Is it possible to get cross hairs? It will be of great benefit to me as I carry nautical charts in the computer. Cross hairs will simplify noting lat and long for installation of waypoints on my chart plotter as I sail the Western Australian coast. I have distrust of recreational charting cards as they are inaccurate, trying to remedy the annomolies is just too hard. Cheers Cliff ordandcher@outlook.com

hello. currently, i click and hold the mouse wheel (aka middle button) and move the mouse towards me and the page moves downward. likewise, moving the mouse to my right moves the page right.

also this happens when using firefox's built in pdf viewer.

is there a way to reverse these directions?

my goal would be to have similar action/movement when using the hand tool in acrobat or photoshop.

thanks

Hello, I have recently tried to install a couple different add-ons and the same thing happens each time; once I click "Add to Firefox," the little blue ball goes left to right but nothing ever happens beyond that. I have the most recent version of the browser and have never had any issues prior. I do not have a VPN running or any other software interfering my connection. All other website and downloads seem to function normally. Can someone shed some light on what's going wrong here?
