I'm wondering how to configure a default zoom level for all users.

I want

about:preferences -> Default zoom

to have a default value of 133% instead of 100%.

So far I'm using the files

firefox/distribution/distribution.ini

and

firefox/browser/defaults/preferences/all-XXX.js

for configuration, but I don't know which keyword to use. I compared the content-prefs.sqlite file between to test profiles, one having 100% default zoom, the other having 133% default zoom.

The database says there is a setting "browser.content.full-zoom", but I can't configure this with the *.ini or *.js file, or can I?


I also read this:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Preferences/A_brief_guide_to_Mozilla_preferences

but it didn't help.

Dark theme on about:home page will not hold; "protected by browser"?

For years, the dark theme I used would apply to all pages, including about:newtab and about:home. About a month ago, this stopped happening, and regardless of choosing a theme that turns the background of the about:home page dark, it reverts to a white background the next time the browser is started.

I also use an add-on called Dark Reader, which gives me some control over the background of most websites. This extension is where the information that the about:home page is "protected by browser". I have not tried disabling Dark Reader, yet.

On the Firefox Options page, under the Home tab, under New Windows and Tabs, the options for "New tabs" include only two (2) choices: Firefox Home (default), or Blank Page. The dark background works (i.e., sticks, holds, stays) on the blank page, but does not work for the Firefox Home (default), which is what I have chosen and prefer. I choose only Top Sites on the Firefox Home Content settings, which are displayed below the "New tabs" settings described above.

Any help in restoring the dark (or consistent theme color) to the Firefox Home or about:home page will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Firefox 76.0.1 on Mac OS X 10.15.4.

Simply put, I have the 'Restore previous session' checkbox ticked under Preferences -> General -> Startup, but each time I close and start Firefox, I get a new window. I checked 'browser.startup.page' property in about:config. It is in bold and set to 3. I also verified that it is set to 3 in prefs.json in my profile directory.

This is really hampering my workflow.

EDIT: This post can be deleted. Apparently I'm new to Mac and did not know that clicking the red button will not quit the application. I hate it already.

hello,

What's a pity with this video overlay option is that the subtitle does not accompany the overlay but remains in the original page.

What would be interesting is to have the subtitle accompanying the detached window.

Do you think it's feasible to recover both the video and the subtitle in the main window?

The New Firefox V76 New Windows and Tabs Function is Wrong Needs to be changed

Dear Firefox Development Team.

I just came back to using Firefox for a Web Browser, I like it. However I Note there is something seriously missing here from a usability point in the Browser caused by lack of settings in the Home Section.

In Firefox, Options, Home Section you have only 2 choices a Section Called "Home Page and New Windows" and "New Tabs" this is the area that needs to be fixed and here is why.

The Choices in the Home Section, New Windows and Tabs should have a 3rd New Option added called Simply "Startup Pages". The new Home Section would have 3 options as listed below.

"Home Page" (an option to input a Single URL) "New Windows and Tabs" (again an option to input Single URL or an option for a Radio Button to "Use Home Page Settings" A new One Called "Startup Pages" ( An option for user to put in a Single URL or Mutliple URL's seperated by a PIPE simple for Multiple Pages. This new Option called Startup Pages should only load When you Start Firefox by clicking on the Desktop Firefox ICON of the ICON for the Firefox Program)

Case In Point.
When I startup Firefox I want to have it open Multiple Pages so I have what I need, this saves me time and avoids me opening what I want loaded EVERY TIME I use Firefox. You give us that option currently in a setting called "Home Page and New Windows" However you also use this when a user clicks on the Home ICON on the toolbar or open a New Window.

I and others do not want multiple pages to load each time I select the Home ICON as they are already open and most users want those STARTUP Pages to remain Open while they Browse. I also do not want my Multiple Pages to Open when I select a new WINDOW or new TAB. in the current setup you can quickly have the same pages open many many times based on the current interface options in the Home Section.

When a user wants to open Multiple Pages at Startup, they Most Generally do not want their multiple pages set in Firefox Options, Home, Home and New Windows to reopen when you want a simple NEW Window or Select the Home Page ICON. Most Users, myself included, want only a single web page to open when selecting the Home Icon in the Toolbar or When Selecting to Open a New Window, and generally users want it to be a Search Engine Page or Firefox Default Web Page. The new Microsoft Edge Browser also has issues with this type of operation and omits settings to accomplish my request.

Unfortunately GOOGLE CHROME does have options to achieve the Settings Separately and they have settings for Show Home Button, which let's you set a URL or New Tab Page, if New Tab Page is selected it simply Opens Up the Google Search page, Startup Page(s). They also have an Option and settings for On Startup where you can set a single page or Multiple pages. In Google Chrome if you want to open a new Window it simply opens the Google Chrome Search Page.

In closing I really like the new Firefox, You have done a Great Job and it is Light Years better than the New Edge Browser or Google Chrome, however to make it Really Rock and BEST IN CLASS for Operations I am hoping you can make changes to the Firefox Options, Home section to allow a more flexible and sensible operation of the Firefox Browser for Home, New Window or Tab and Startup, this would be Awesome and I do not think it would be a Major Change in the Code by adjust the Home Settings and adding a new Option

Thank you for Consideration of this Feature Request, please keep up the Great Work.

It seems to me that my Control + F is not working correctly. Before, a Find Bar would appear and i could see the words/phrases I was typing and how many matches were found, and it helped navigate the page. Now when I use the Control + F (or the Find on this Page... option) no find bar appears but it still highlights the said words on the page. I just cannot see what i have typed and the Find bar really helped me navigate the pages. Is this due to an update? was the Find Bar removed from Firefox, or is it just me? Any help?

Hello -

Windows10 64 FF 76.0.1

I have FB container and multi-containers. I allowed livejournal.com into my FB container but I cannot post comments. If I disable FB container and just keep multi-containers it works fine. If I allowed the site into the container shouldn't it work normally?

I have "too many" bookmarks. I can move bookmarks into folders, so that related bookmarks can all be stored together - GREAT! BUT - when I am done moving bookmarks to those folders, what I want to have happen is that when I push the bookmarks button, I want all bookmarks moved to folders to STOP appearing in the bookmarks list unless I specifically ask for the contents of that folder. Even ancient Internet Explorer allowed the user to place Favorites in folders, so that when you asked for Favorites, you didn't see EVERY favorite listed - just the Favorites that were not in folders, and then folder icons which would allow you to see all of the Favorites belonging in that folder.

Hi there,

after the recent MS update, I can no longer just open my browser to Firefox. It always asks me if I want it to be the default browser, I choose yes, then select Firefox in the list of browsers. I have followed all the instructions about making it your default browser in Firefox and Win 10 but still asking.

I guess MS really wants Edge in there for everything, so I may have to wave the white flag to them sooner or later.
