I posted a question re menu bar colours and received a reply but now I cannot find my original question to continue the conversation. How do I do that? Help me please.

Hello ·´¯`·...¸>-)))º> ~dbben Thanks for reply. I see the 'simple themes' box but it doesn't give me what I want; ie there is still no option to colour in the menu bar. The options displayed under 'more themes' completely baffles me. What are they supposed to do? I dare not select one (even if I could see how) in case I cannot return to the theme I have at the moment. Neither is there any indication that I can see that tells me which theme is currently set.

If I right click on a webpage the context menu opens. If I then click outside the context menu it doesn't close, but stays open. If I move focus to the search bar (not the address bar), starts typing and select an item from the drop down list, the drop down list stay open. If I start typing in the address bar and select an item from the drop down lost, the drop down list stay open. If I click the Bookmark menu icon on the toolbar the drop down list with bookmarks open, but if I click outside the list, it doesn't close but stay open. The same thing happens with the program menu in Firefox. Even when I start a different program, the menus and drop down lists from Firefox stays open on top of the other program. The problem also happens when I run Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode.

Any ideas?

Newer release of Firefox auto-fill username and password when they should not. I have a web application that has a list of people. Optionally (form is even hidden requiring a click to see) a person can be a user (rare). My username and password are auto filled in ALWAYS now for the person (even when the form is not showing). Can I just change the field names (username, password) in the jsp and have Firefox NOT fill mine in automagically? Or if not, how do I tell the browser that these are normal fields - leave them alone PLEASE (do not auto-fill)?

So I am not sure what this is about. I know the search bar and URL are combined no matter what at this point, but the issue is that if I type any letter; it suggests a website that I have never visited, bookmarked, searched, etc.

Please see the screen shot I have attached. In this example, I typed the letter "y", although it can be done with any other letter, and an unwarranted site will pre-populate. I am assuming this is Mozilla is promoting/sponsoring certain websites when you start typing any letter, which I don't want a part of.

It can't be DuckDuckGo causing this (the search engine of this user's choice), because changing the Firefox settings from URL to Search bar only doesn't make this issue stop. Not sure what I can do to prevent unsolicited sites from showing up when I am typing into the URL field.

To replicate, you can start typing any letter into the URL/Search bar field and the first result directly underneath is a "random" website suggestion.

This is why I assume it is coming from Mozilla (not DuckDuckGo), because before the recent updates, there was never this issue. It is great that you guys want to promote your favorite sites, but from the user's end: it is forced upon us; which is not supposed to be Firefox-like.

I don't read the blogs and articles about Mozilla's vision, so perhaps this is a new feature and it works as expected; however, there should be an opt-out so that users can just search for a website name without a favored suggestion appearing directly below.

Hallo

Seit einigen Tage versuche ich die Suchfunktion in der Adressleiste auszuschalten.

Egal was ich mache, die Suche in der Adressleiste lässt sich nicht deaktivieren.

Wenn ich einen neuen Tab öffne, dann habe ich da ein Suchfeld. Möchte ich dort etwas eintippen springt, das einfach in die Adressleiste.

keyword.enabled habe ich auf false gestellt.

In den Einstellungen eine eigene Suchleiste.

Inhalte des Firefox-Startbildschirms ist eine eigene Suchleiste eingestellt. Und diese benutze ich zu 90 % und sonst die Suchleiste, aber niemals die Adressleiste.

Was kann ich tun?

I like to use the slider for scrolling though long articles and back. But many times I can't find the slider, it stays invisible until I hit it by accident. This is crazy, why can the slider in the scrollbar not be visible all the time? there is no option to deactivate the stupid rule that hides it. Please somebody an idea for a workaround or so. Different themes don't change that uncontrollable hiding behaviour that happens in Firefox, but also thunderbird Thank for helping me Ferdinand

I've been using Firefox with Virgin Media's TV Go https://virgintvgo.virginmedia.com/en.html for quite a while without a problem. After the latest update I got the message to update the browser to the latest version and restart. I've tried talking to Virgin about it but been given the runaround by them - surprise. I've tried other browsers, Safari, Chrome, but the quality of the stream is poor compared to what I was getting with Firefox. Has anyone got any ideas? Any hopes?

I need to copy browsing history and bookmarks from one laptop with FF v.60 to another laptop with FF v.52.

I know there are different ways of doing this, but in my case I don't have use of the source laptop. BUT, I do have the full profile saved in both laptops. I also had saved a json bookmarks copy, but it's 5 days old. No huge deal but I had some major restructuring of my bookmarks yesterday.

There's also sync, but I tried to just sync history and it does nothing. Plus I'm not sure if it's going to sync to "last updated" which is actually the other (destination) laptop with FF v52.

In my profile I see bookmarks clearly, but no history. They are both in places.sqlite? Should I just copy this? What else would be copied?

By the way, in bookmarkbackups folder, I see the last jsonlz4 file is from June 9 12:10 am, not June 10 12:10 am as it should have been perhaps. Does this jsonlz4 file work with the restore command of "import and backup"?

Thank you!

I have an older laptop and got a new one. I have installed Firefox 89.0 on both machines. I want to migrate all of the Firefox data from the old one to the new one. I have copied the Profile from C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles to a thumb drive. I believe this to be all that I need to move to the new machine. The problem is that I don't know where to put it on the new machine.

I understand that Firefox must be closed when I modify the new machine. I also discovered that there is a Profile.ini file that has a pointer to the filename that Firefox will use when it is opened. Do I have to modify this file as well?

Perhaps I am on the wrong track and need to be redirected. If so, please point me to an article or wiki that will put me on the right one.

For many years I've been able to do a Google search from Firefox, the result being shown on Google.com and from there I was able to click on Settings in the toolbar beneath the search text box on the page, which displayed a drop down with various options, including Advanced Search, Languages, Search History etc.

However today, clicking on Settings on Google.com takes me to https://www.google.com/preferences instead of displaying the drop down. This would force me to navigate to the advanced search manually, making use of the search from the address bar functionality of Firefox amost useless.

This behaviour is only happening for me in Firefox, with Chrome and Edge both displaying the drop down when clicking on Settings.

The Settings I'm referring to is outlined in the attached image.
