I was wondering if some websites ask for my microhpone permission, it can autofocus to the microhpone permission dialog of Firefox.

Because I sometimes use the Tab key to browse the websites, when the websites ask, I have to: 1. Press Tab key to several times to first get to the Firefox Menu Bar. 2. Press directional key to choose the phone icon. 3. Press Enter key to enter in the permission dialog.

Thank you.

Since the recent update to Firefox 100 the only usable theme seems to be the light theme.

When using other themes, for example the dark theme, some areas of Firefox become unreadable. For example the tab bar:

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-05-13-11-36-27-973853.png

How can I change these colors individually, so I can use the dark theme again but still see and read my open tabs?

When I try to load a png file with transparent background into firefox 35.0.1, the background appears black. I've already tried Transparent standalone images add-on with no results, including https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/transparent-standalone-image/reviews/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_content=addons-manager-reviews-link and https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/transparent-standalone-images/reviews/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_content=addons-manager-reviews-link

I also look at the previous question with the same name, from 2015: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1044582#question-reply

Unfortunately after trying to follow every step there, I have the same question as the OP did on 2/3/2015, except that the extension he recommends ( Old Default Image Style: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/old-default-image-style/ ) and the other two recommended by cor-el ( Transparent standalone images: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/transparent-standalone-imag/ and Custom Standalone Image Backgrounds: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/custom-image-backgrounds/ ) are all dead links in 2022.

I would appreciate some help with this.

I searched extensively for this and could only find answers regarding bookmarks, not add-on icons. Of course I could still be missing it...

I am upgrading from Firefox Developer 86 to 101.

The spacing between add-on icons has been increased in Firefox 101, making the URL bar shorter:

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-05-26-17-03-36-e06f37.png

Does anyone know of a userChrome.css script that I can use to decrease the add-on icon spacing in Firefox 101, to make it more like Firefox 86?

I noticed in my wife's identity that "share" from the top file menu does NOT bring up the options for (Mac 11.6.5) to send an email or message, etc. I know it works from my identity w. same computer/settings. It used to work all the time on her identity, (and does so w.o issue using her Safari), but I don't recall an update.

   It also is obnoxious as all the 'share' brings up is the stock Mac "extensions' options, of which mail, messages are grey scaled out (as is iCloud), with no padlock or way to make them clickable/check or uncheck!   I have run safe mode, disabled extensions from the top bar, but have no idea how to make the "share" share!!!  It does work if we just highlight the page address and post it into macmail (14.0).  These permission things have no clear way to reset them for Firefox...i.e my calling up Mac support would probably be useless.

I regularly switch between two Firefox settings:

Search for text when you start typing: checked Search for text when you start typing: unchecked

I use a third-party scripting tool (Macro Express Pro) to automate the process so that a single hotkey toggles between the two settings. My macro looks something like this:

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): <F10> // Move focus to the Menu bar Delay: 800 milliseconds Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): t // Tools Delay: 200 milliseconds Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): s // Settings

Delay: 1000 milliseconds

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): <SHIFT><ALT>x // Toggle the search setting Delay: 50 milliseconds

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): <CONTROL><F4> // Close the setting pane

My macro is a bit unreliable. It works about 80% of the time. I could improve reliability a little by using longer delays, but my preference would be to do this in a more programmatic way, or at minimum, in a more direct way with fewer steps.

Is there a way to toggle this setting, for example, via about:config or by typing something in the address bar? The Firefox hotkey in the Settings pane is SHIFT + ALT + x. Is there a way to force this hotkey to be recognized in a regular Firefox window?

I have a little javascript was given to me that increases the volume when playing Youtube vids that are too quiet. here it is: javascript:(function(){var videoElement = document.querySelector("video");var audioCtx = new AudioContext();var source = audioCtx.createMediaElementSource(videoElement);var gainNode = audioCtx.createGain();gainNode.gain.value = 3; /* triple the volume */ source.connect(gainNode);gainNode.connect(audioCtx.destination);})();

I don't know how it works. Whether it talks to firefox or it talks to win10 or it talks to Youtube. I don't know.

But sometimes it doesn't work. then I have to reboot.

Seeing it is in Firefox I just thought firefox guys might know something about why it doesn't work and perhaps some way to kick it into action?

Hi,

If I launch this, all's fine:

firefox.exe http://myurl

I can view the site at http://myurl.

However, I want to launch firefox with a specific profile, so I tried this:

firefox.exe -profile "C:\firefox\profile" http://myurl

I know that the profile's directory is loaded and written to because I created that dir with ONLY chrome/userchrome.css, and after launching firefox I can see a whole bunch of new files in there (eg. json files, sqlite files, etc.)

I can also see that it is also properly applying the settings in userchrome.css after I enabled toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets.

However, http://myurl is not being opened at all. The culprit seems to be my userchrome.css which contains:

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

  1. openLocation, #urlbar-container, #CustomizeToolbarWindow, #toolbar-context-menu, #menubar-items {
display:none!important;

}

My intention is to open a URL and disable all other bells and whistles in the browser except the window and forward/back buttons (ie. I do not want kiosk mode).

How can I do that?

[EDIT]

It seems that #urlbar-container is the problem. If I set it to display:none!important, firefox will not open the URL I provide on the command line. Why? So, how can I tell firefox to open a URL but not allow the user to navigate elsewhere by typing it in the "urlbar"?

[EDIT 2]

This seems to do the trick:

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

  1. openLocation, #CustomizeToolbarWindow, #toolbar-context-menu,
  2. search-container, #personal-bookmarks, #menubar-items {
display:none!important;

}

  1. urlbar-container {
visibility:hidden;

}

However, I'd like to know if there are caveats.

BTW if Mozilla's support for userchrome.css will ever be dropped in the future what is a better way of doing the above? I certainly can't use kiosk mode and -app (app mode) is unavailable and will probably never will be.

I'd like to use Vimium on every page. Some Firefox pages disable add-ons, like the settings page, when viewing pdfs, home page, this page etc..

How do I keep Vimium enabled always?

On these pages, clicking the Vimium icon reads: > Vimium is not running on this page.

> Your browser does not run web extensions like Vimium on certain pages, > usually for security reasons.

> Unless your browser's developers change their policy, then unfortunately > it is not possible to make Vimium (or any other web extension, for that > matter) work on this page.

Hello,

I use my laptop's touchpad for zooming but it acts just like Ctrl + "+" or Ctrl + "-" and changes the whole webpage. I want to zoom in smoothly so that only that part of the screen gets enlarged (like zooming an image on touchscreen). I looked on the internet and found that it can be done by turning "apz.allow_zooming" to true from about:config but it was already set to true. I use the latest Firefox version on Ubuntu 20.04 (tried 22.04 also and wayland too). Can you please help how I can enable pinch to zoom in firefox?
