I recently moved from a Firefox fork that supports Classic Theme Restorer to one that doesn't. Sigh. It was however a relief to discover that I could make most of the same UI changes myself with a bit of effort. The only major customization remaining is a traditional "page loading" animation in the right corner of the address bar, preferably a swirly or moving dots animation and not the hourglass or ping-pong dots. How is this do-able with current builds? Thanks.

Textbox caret stops blinking after a few seconds

In the past the caret in text entry fields used to blink/pulsate/flash forever in both Firefox and Thunderbird. (Text entry boxes, such as the browser URL-bar, the e-mail To/Subject/Content textboxes, online forms, etc.). Now in the latest versions of Mozilla Firefox 110.0.1 and Thunderbird 102.8.0 the caret stops blinking after just a few seconds. This is very confusing and frustrating for my grandmother and she already called me several times because Firefox and Thunderbird 'stopped working'. I explained to her that this is a new feature but she does not understand and keeps forgetting it after a few days. She is used to the cared blinking continuously, it has been blinking for the past decades whenever she wanted to type something in the computer and it only stopped blinking when the computer program froze or crashed.

I am sure that my grandma is not the only person having issues with the caret not flashing, I for one also would like to have a caret that blinks forever, so when I look away from the screen and look back I do not have to search the text to find where I left my caret.

Please make it so that the default caret appearance and behavior is the same as in all other programs (i.e. blinking forever), as it used to be in the past, just like what everyone is used to. I argue that the majority of users is used to and also expects a blinking caret when they are writing an e-mail or search online and you are confusing a whole lot of people with this minor change, people who do not know how to report bugs or seek help themselves. It's a sign of poor user-friendliness if grandmas need to call their grandchildren or children for help just to write e-mails which they used to be able to do on their own for many years in the past.

I hereby suggest adding an accessibility option for people who wish to disable the blinking cursor and to change the default behavior back to 'caret flashing forever'.

when you select text and right click popup "Search google for 'text marked'" , here google is your FF's default search engine, but for people in multi-lingual region would prefer to search e.g. web in the language of the selected text, which makes more sense for the results.

I wonder if FF could add this function, auto detect the text's language and search in e.g. google.de, google.cn or google.fr?

Which is like the macOS lookup, it detect the text language and point to that dictionary?

FF could be a little more intelligent, right?

Hello,

I've changed the background color on the private tabs/windows with this CSS:

@-moz-document url(about:privatebrowsing){
 html.private{
  background-color: #2B2A33 !important;
  --in-content-page-color: gray !important;
}

I would like to make the "background-color" to be the same as the window background without hardcoding it, so it always match the theme, ie:

 background-color: <window.background> !important;

I would like to do the same with the background color of the search box in the private mode window, but I can't find the id.

Regards.

Hi: I'm trying to find some way of removing the vertical lines in replies. A previous asking of this same question lead me to attempt to install the 'replywithheader' add-on but it hangs with the "Add ReplyWithHeader? This extension will have permission to: .... Cancel Add" popup box ... It doesn't matter if I click either Cancel or Add, the box just hangs there. Or is there some other way of removing the vertical lines? One might have thought this would be an easily accessible option in the setup.

Thing is that I'm working on a rather long report with other people and we email changes back and forth but each time another vertical line is added. How to nuke ALL the vertical lines? How to stop them from being added in the first place?

In Firefox 71 and later version, Mozilla introduce a new about:config page style. In the new about:config page, the search bar can only match the name of preferences, but can't match the value of preferences. For example, when I type "https" in the search bar, The old about:config page can list all preferences with "https" in its name and value; but the new about:config page only list the preferences with "https" in its name. It makes user difficult to find the target preferences with specific value. Is there any method to find the target preferences with specific value?

I've attached an image of what's happening to me. Since last update, the toolbar is 50% allocated to blank space which cannot be used.

For example, I cannot drag to resize the search box across to the left side of the toolbar (which is where I like it), nor can any item be dragged or placed there.

I'm pondering (if I know how) installing an older version and preventing updates etc.

Is there another solution? Is anyone else seeing this?

Any tips would be hugely appreciated.

Cheers, Matt (Australia)

It's still up on chrome and edge and all of the Dev's other add-ons are still up, its only this one on firefox. I emailed the dev and he sent me the zip file and I've been having to install it as a temporary add-on with the .json file every time i open firefox and its getting really annoying after a year of doing this. How can I just install it permenantly?

I've tried to update some about:config settings but it doesn't seem to be helpful and old working correctives add-ons are not supported anymore.
