Hello,

Recently I rebuilt my Widows 11 laptop, which meant that I needed to install Firefox again. I did this and signed into to sync all my add-ons again. The add-ons installed without issue, however the icons for them are not displayed on the tool bar. I can access them using the jigsaw icon, but this is is less inconvenient that accessing the add-on directly.

I then reset Firefox in case it was a glitch and signed in again to allow the sync to reinstall the add-ons. This time only the Privacy Badger icon made it onto the toolbar. Again I can access the add-ons using the jigsaw icon.

I have tried to add the add-ons to the Customise Toolbar setting, but they do not show up in the list of things that can be added.

Firefox version: 112.0.1 (64 bit)

I have attached images to show what is happening. Is there anyway I can force the add-on icons onto the toolbar to make them more accessible?

Thank you

Cloudflare hosted site complains about Firefox but works with Chrome

This site, Costco Instacart, worked perfectly with Firefox as recently as April 15, 2023 but today fails (see attached image): https://sameday.costco.com/store/costco/storefront?zipcode=11021

Cloudflare believes it is protecting itself from online attacks when accessed by Firefox. The same site worked perfectly today, on the same computer, using Google Chrome.

Cloudflare is a major CDN and many important commercial sites, like Costco Instacart, have their content delivered by Cloudflare so this is a major issue with Firefox. For the moment there is a work-around, use Chrome instead, but it would be better to have Firefox address issues with Cloudflare.

How do I install/update/trust a new ZOOM certificate with Error code 10006?

Zoom.us renewed their DigiCert Global G2 TLS RSA SHA256 2020 CA1 certificate on 03/31/2023 and I now get a persistent error message (Error Code 6: ... certificate is not trusted.

Since then Zoom has not worked for me and their Artificial Intelligence says to open my browser and check my internet connection, time settings, updates, reinstall everything etc. - the usual responses ...

Zoom responds with "Error code: 6" and/or "Error code: 100068000"

 but do not stipulate whether these are Zoom Error codes or certificate error codes.

The Artificial Intelligence insinuation is that FireFox is not trusting this certificate.

Is this something FireFox can help me with? Perhaps, how to make this certificate "trusted"?

Thanks, I hope, Dave Henry (Dan is my Facebook pseudonym) ( DavidJHenry@telus.net )

How to Hide the Mute Tab Button?

I've tried following both methods for dissabling the mute button on tabs, it's a slight annoyance, since it's easy to accidentally mute a tab when it's pinned.

Specifically, the first method I've tried changing the setting in about:config called "browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon" from true to false, which was from 7 years ago it seems, which had no effect.

The second method was by making a new rule in a "userChrome.css" file in a new folder called "chrome" with that exact naming, case sensitive. The code in that file is as follows:

/* Hide the mute/unmute button */
.tab-icon-overlay:not([pinned], [sharing], [crashed]):is([soundplaying], [muted]) {
    display: none !important;
}
/* Keep site icon visible on hover */
.tabbrowser-tab:hover .tab-icon-stack:not([pinned], [sharing], [crashed]):is([soundplaying], [muted]) > :not(.tab-icon-overlay), 
     /* for site icon with Compact density */
:root[uidensity="compact"] .tab-icon-stack:not([pinned], [sharing], [crashed]):is([soundplaying], [muted]) > :not(.tab-icon-overlay) {
    opacity: 1 !important; /* overrides full transparency with full opacity */
}

If there's an updated version of the code that's meant to have that effect in modern firefox, then please let me know, or if there's some other new way of removing the mute button on tabs. Thanks.

Hi,

I use Firefox daily, but since the last update I'm unable to make card payments on websites and I'm having to use Chrome as a backup. Up until the update everything was fine and there were no issues making payments on the Royal Mail and Asda websites. When I click the pay button on these sites, the payment window does not open up.

I've tried disabling all addons/extensions to no avail.

Regards Andrew

The desktop mouse cursor becomes large when using Firefox with >200% display scaling. It doesn't matter if it's 250% or 300%, the result is the same. My system configuration is as follows:

Opensuse Tumbleweed (up-to-date) Firefox 112.0.2 64bit KDE Plasma running Wayland

I've included 2 screenshots that show the difference in the mouse pointer size when outside of a Firefox window and inside it. Also, this issue is only present with Firefox; no other application produces this result. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Newbie question: today I started out using Firefox, so bear with me.

I am trying to set the Firefox Home page to display a limited number of 'pins'. Did manage to get them there, but some other pins are automatically added (based on recent visits I suppose?) So I have 8 pins, 3 I don't want. When dismissing, I get other links instead.

Maybe this is by design and can not be changed.

Vainly search for a way to have only the few pins, that I want, show there, nothing else.

Thanks!

I want to re-order the add-ons / extensions in the toolbar shared with the search bar. Customize toolbar only has functions/icons related to the operation of Firefox. I want to customize the extensions toolbar, but how?

In the add-ons page, I can remove, disable, or enable extensions, but I cannot change the order of them.

As an example, there is an add-on for my Firefox account that is leftmost in the bar of extension icons. I would like to move it all the way to the right. Again, how would I do that?

Thanks for your help.

How can I import this CSV file? I found something on reddit that said to change security.allow_eval_in_parent_process to true, but that no longer works. How can I get my passwords imported without having to install another browser and import to that and then import to firefox?

Mozilla is great at pushing out every possible new update, no matter how trivial. Every time it does, I have to reset everything.

I've been doing this since Firefox 6. I've learned to store all my about:config tweaks in a file so I can quickly copy, paste and reset them on each update. I've included the various program settings I want, too, so I don't have to think and try to remember what each one means and what I want. I use userChrome.css to set some of my display settings, but I'm not very familiar with it.

Is there some script, program, add-on, or other method to convert this time intensive restoration of my settings every month or so for all the new updates. I'd love to find some form of a "registry.reg" type file that would work on Firefox and/or Thunderbird.

If there's something out there, I'm positive a LOT of others would want it, too.

Hi there,

I'm trying to add multi-containers add on to a new Firefox install, it installs, but the icon doesnt show up. It's not hidden in the customise toolbar menu either. Have tried removing/re-adding, but it doesnt come up. It is possible to get to it by clicking the extensions icon, then clicking multi-container, but this isnt very user friendly. Is there a way to resolve this?

Thanks!

I am using the latest version of Firefox (112.02 32-bit) with Windows 10 but am being blocked from certain websites by the Cloudflare security app because it says that my browser is out-of-date. This was particularly embarassing when I was trying to buy tickets for a concert recently and was unable to access the venue's online payment system.

It may be that Cloudflare is confused because I occasionly use an older version of Firefox (52.9.0 32-bit) with an earlier version of Windows. How can this issue be resolved so that Cloudflare does not block legimate access to websites when I am using the most up-to-date version of Firefox?

I'm now running in troubleshooting mode with NO extensions.

For weeks my drives have been churning and I've been running out of resource, seeing the hour glass, graying screen, etc.

I finally closed the windows with countless tabs, disabled some extensions, and it got better, but I still have problems, even in troubleshooting mode.

Task manager still shows phantom tabs. I had 4 tabs open, it showed 7, etc.

And strangely, I now see Kaperski Native Messaging with the tabs in task manager: https://www.file.net/process/plugin-nm-server.exe.html

Closed that. Have 7 tabs in one window, task manager shows 11 tabs.

Am so confused.
