I am using the latest firefox on a dell laptop and a dell desktop. Neither was customised much since I installed. The desk top ebay search maintains the white background in search mode but the laptop goes to dark background in search mode - and is for the most part unreadable.

Google Advice for this issue offers too many varients to list - all that I tried had no effect.

The few settings that seemed to be promising are the same on both machines

The look of the settings pages is different on the 2 machines and I understand that is due to the screen sizes etc

There is some hard to find selection I guess that is controlling this on the laptop and would greatly appreciate being directed to it

I cannot find the right thing to change in about :config to stop the address bar stealing all my searches, it is quite irritating. I have just bought two new computers and on first I managed eventually, but have been 8 hours trying to figure it out ( as in what I did before) I am not tech savvy so only managed before by searching info online. Can anyone help with this ?

I know this has been asked before but I've looked through past instances and couldn't find a solution that still seems to work as of 2022. I need a way to disable certain built-in Firefox keyboard shortcuts. I recently switched from Chrome to Firefox but if I can't disable the ctrl+i and ctrl+b keyboard shortcuts I'm going to have to switch back. I use both very frequently for work, so their non-functionality in this browser is genuinely impacting my productivity and it's getting really frustrating.

I never want to see this content again and am considering switching browsers.

I don't want to see or think about ads, i don't want to know what getpocket is. I don't want chefs plate and their columbiahouse 2.0 bullshit product. It is absolute trash.

I do not want to see these things. Ever. Again.

If there is no way to remove these things from my browser its time to go back to chrome.

Thanks.

I use a touch screen HP laptop. And when I shopping or just reading news and there is a picture on the page or site it pops up, even if I do not touch it. I can not see the text behind it. I know it is a setting some here because if i go to trouble shooting mode it does not happen. i have checked and unchecked every thing I can fine and nothing helps but trouble shooting mode. So when I close out and reopen Firefox trouble back. I have not tried other browsers because I only like Firefox

My shortcut display had frequently visited websites shown and these have been replaced by several sponsored shortcuts I am not interested in. Plus, my saved user names and passwords are not loading even though they are still stored. I don't understand what happened, why these have changed, or how to restore what I previously had on shortcuts. I am not a tech savvy person and am stumped and looking for help

Hey! I think to migrate from Vivaldi but only couple of things stops me. I used to split some tabs in one screen there and looks like I can't find any good addons for that. There is one addon Tile Tabs WE but it is not what I need, I want to tabs be still along other tabs, I can detach them and place on my screen by myself without such addons but that's uncomfortable to use.

Is it possible to revoke 'tabs' permission from an addon that grants it by default?

I modified the script provided here (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1257097), I got a successful message but permission is still there.

browser.permissions.getAll().then(resp => {

 if (resp.permissions.length == 0){
   console.log('There are no permissions for this extension');
 } else {
   if (resp.permissions.includes('tabs')){
     console.log('Attempting to remove "tabs" permission --');
     browser.permissions.remove({permissions: ["tabs"]}).then(msg => {
       console.log('Removal successful (' + msg + ')');}).catch(err => {
       console.log('Problem: ' + err)});
   } else {
     console.log('Did not find the "tabs" permission, but found these: [' + resp.permissions.join(',') + ']');
   }
 }

});

thanks

Hello Team,

Firefox does not play well with how you customize keyboard shortcuts on Mac i.e. Go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts.

By default - Move Cursor to Address Bar - Cmd+L Bookmark this Page - Cmd+D

I would like to switch these two shortcuts but there does not seem to be any way. Please help me out.

Thanks, Naman
