Hello, I somewhat recently noticed (maybe about a month ago) that my overflow menu disappeared and an "Extensions" menu appeared in its place.

I've already created a new profile and switched to it, with no success and I'm not sure what else to try or why it went away to begin with (and why this Extensions menu is now here and won't go away).

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I have a Macbook with a Finnish keyboard layout.

Safari, Chrome and Edge, by default, support command+ö and command+ä for going back and forward in history. This is because Finnish/Swedish (they're the same) keyboard layout doesn't have [ or ] available.

While command + back arrow and command + forward arrow still work, those are useless as they get disabled when a text field is focused.

I tried to work around this with an extension (shortkeys), but even they don't support using umlauts for shortcuts.

I'm trying to adopt Firefox but I can't unless this gets fixed.

Thank you.

On a few web pages involving maps (e.g., at https://www.pogomap.info), moving my finger on the Apple wireless mouse causes the display to zoom instead of scroll, and often it is so sensitive that the slightest finger movement causes uncontrolled zooming. Holding down the control or command key while touching the mouse does not change the behavior. I looked at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344674 -- "uncontrolled zooming" and went to about:config and then mousewheel*action, but the parameters I see there seem to be set appropriately. Specifically, mousewheel.default.action and mousewheel.default.action.override_x are both set to 1 (Scroll normally). I also looked at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344894 -- "disable or lock zoom" and changed mousewheel.with_meta.action to 1, but the zooming didn't change so I put it back to 3. (I assume I don't have to restart Firefox to invoke the change.) Any more suggestions?

Explore possibilities of using System Theme 1.0 in Firefox 91.9.1esr and later.

After moving to Firefox 91.9.1esr I found problem with System theme 1.2. The color of tab add button was changed, and the button is not visible with my Windows 7 classic windows system theme. So, I'm trying to find a way to port System theme 1.0 color scheme to newer firefox versions.

Creation of a simple theme with firefox color extension works. But it is unable to recreate the effects related to active and inactive window color changes. As, I had to use bitmap to get the OS blue color transition pattern.

It seems the system theme is stored in omni.ja file. Modification of the omni.ja seems to be not a practical solution. So, it would be a better way to create an addon theme with the same code as the System Theme 1.0.

The first question is, if it will be possible to create a theme with the same code as a system theme has. Will it be able to perform the same way?

The next question is: Where the source code of the system theme is? I was unable to find it in the Firefox source. It seems, it is not stored in any obvious location.

I run Parallels on my Macbook 14" and have downloaded both Mac and Windows verison of Firefox. In Windows verison I can close the active TAB I'm currently in by clicking on the X, however Mac version does not allow this. I must select another TAB and then close the orginal one I wanted to close.

The same is true for the refresh button, in Mac the button is not active but in Windows it is.

I have 3 monitors on my Windows 11 PC set to extended mode. I would like to display Firefox across the 2 adjacent screens on the left (leaving the third screen on the right for other display). I want to run one web application, one tab, no other websites, etc in this Firefox displayed on the 2 screens. Of course that is easy to setup, but when I close Firefox (either using the X or exit button), Firefox initially reopens on both the original screens, but then reverts to the left screen only. Is there anyway to set Firefox to always open across the 2 monitors please? Thank you, Bruce

I have 3 monitors total, 2 of which are perfectly fine as they are... but the 3rd is a 55" 4k TV that I keep at a distance. Is there any way to scale Firefox on my tv without adjusting the scale on all my monitors? I tried adjusting the overall settings of my pc, but Linux Mint 20.3 REALLY sucks at individual monitor adjustment outside of simply setting it to a lower resolution, and I'd really like to reap the benefits of a hi res screen.

It is very convenient to open commonly visited sites from Firefox home, but there is no need for sites that i rarely visit.

Firefox automatically adds random sites that I have visited to empty slots. There should be option to disable this. There is a option in menu for this but it is not toggle-able.

Or is there a property in about:config that controls this? I tried some but they didnt't help.
