A setting I would like to change in both Firefox Beta and Thunderbird Beta is "grayed out" and has a lock next to it preventing change. What configuration file(s) do I look for to find where they have been locked, so I can unlock them and change the setting? Thank you.

Hi, I'm using 125% zoom normally on Reddit(classic) since I find it better for reading, but for some reason I decided to zoom out to 70%(can't remember why) and now it resets to 70% every time I close/open a tab. I tried to adjust it back to 125%, but it still resets. I went and changed the zoom max/min to 100% min and 150% max and now it stays at 100% every time. What can I do, besides resetting the whole program?

I'm using latest update (according to Firefox setting page) Firefox for Windows desktop. Searching extensions from the settings page, OR, by clicking on link to https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/ send me to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/. But all extensions have the warning, "You'll need Firefox to use this extension" with no download button, only a button to send me to the Firefox download page. What's going on?

A couple nights ago my menu bar disappeared. I'm running FF 116.03 on an older MacBook Pro. I have now spent several hours searching on what's gone wrong, but none of the following have proved fruitful:

And probably more things I cannot even remember at this point. I'm beyond frustrated as all I seem to be able to do is show/hide the Title Bar.

I can't seem to find anyone else reporting this issue.

My setup:

Firefox Version 116.0.2 (64-bit) Firefox for Manjaro Linux


Whenever a tab is playing sound, there's an icon on the taskbar icon that disables or re-enables audio in Firefox. Is there a way to deactivate/remove that button in the "about:config"-menu?

I used to have the Tab Mix Plus extension which no longer works in Firefox.

The one feature I really miss from this extension is the ability to alternate between 2 tabs by clicking on one of them. I know that there are various extensions that allow you to switch tabs using shortcut keys and I do use the Switch to Previous Active Tab extension which is useful but I do miss the simplicity of being able to just click on a tab to switch to the previous and even after several years without it I still often try to do it, forgetting that it no longer works.

Is there any extension or setting that can reinstate this feature?

For the last week or so, I've been getting these popup ads for Builder's Warehouse whenever I open Firefox (see screenshot attached). However, - the ads aren't "in the browser" window they're right at the top of my screen - There's no options I can find to see any information about where the ad comes from - The ad usually disappears quite fast, preventing me from investigating further I don't imagine it could be being shown by Google because it appears without me opening Google. So it kind of seems like it's probably being done by the browser. But I also struggle to believe that Firefox would be purposefully showing me such invasive advertising. So I'm guessing it's malware. But I don't know. Please help me to understand: - Where does this ad come from? - If it's malware, any ideas how to get rid of it? - If it's Firefox, and they're being shown because of a mistake on my part, how do I turn them off?

Thanks

The LastPass icon has disappeared from the menu. I've tried re-installing the extension, and looking in the "customize" list (right click on the menu area), but it isn't there. Please advise how I can get it back. I rely on it. I think this is a result of a Firefox upgrade.

After a recent update from Mozilla Firefox, I have these pop up windows that slide out from the bottom right of the screen of my laptop.

They stay there and interfere when I try to use the slider on the right hand side of the screen. Even inactivating my cursor. I have to click onto the pop up box to make it go away. Sometimes it takes me to a stupid article about Harry & Megan or some inane story.

How do I get rid of this? (I need step-by-step instructions please)

I'll NEVER upload another Mozilla Firefox update.

I might find another browser to use.

When I scoll over text to copy or delete, the text stays transparent, no color to show what's been highlighted--how can I change this so I see a color. In Chrome, it's blue. But I don't care as long as I can see what I highlighted-- it's just about driven me away from Firefox so hoping someone can answer-- thanks

When watching Youtube in full screen, mousing over bottom right corner of the screen activates some kind of a miniscule scroll down button. I assume this is an issue with Firefox since it does not occur in other browsers. I want to disable this functionality so when instinctively navigating to the bottom right corner I disable full screen, not scroll down.

Recently, firefox added an annoying feature that throws unwanted popups into my face: Website translation.

I want it gone. I can't seem to find any switch to get rid of that garbage in the preferences. I'm not scared of about:config but the best I could find was a list of languages to never translate.

How do I globally and eternally disable website translations?

Bank has changed access requirements to require geo-location when logging into account. Under Firefox settings, I found the geo-location settings screen; however, have not found how to add my bank's website for the purposes of allowing access to my geo-location when accessing their online banking services.

The only options listed were to delete 2 listed websites with geo-location access.

There is no add button to allow geo-location access when logging into my bank account?

Thanks for your assistance.

Regards,
