Hi, i'm absolutely missing the tab groups feature that was removed with firefox quantum.

Is there a possibility to bring back this feature? Within firefox by default? Or as an addon?

None of the other alternative addons are what i'm looking for. I almost used the tab groups feature as an better alternative for bookmarking my urls. Because it also was easy to group and search for keywords on the tabs within the tab groups view. Thanks, tobi

Is there a way to customize the colors of each element of a displayed URI in the address bar?

A generic URI is of the form:

scheme:[user[:password@]host[:port]]/path[?query][#fragment]

For example with the following URI:

https://example.com/search?q=txt#result

I'd like to have the scheme (`https://`) be displayed as it is right now. The host (`example.com`) should be shown with a blue foreground font color. The path (`/search`) in yellow. The query (`&q=txt`) in red and the fragment (`#result`) in black.

Is such a customization possible - I coulnd't seem to find any info on that or a relevant add-on.

It seems to work in Google Chrome and such but ever since switching to FF, I've loved it. I do have an issue with Flash and I've tried almost every solution listed, reinstalling Firefox, reinstalling flash itself, submitting crash reports, etc etc, but nothing seems to work and if I need to view a flash I would have to view it on Google Chrome.

the scroll bar does not appear in youtube for subscriptions in firefox anymore. I have to use chrome for it to work. I hope youtube fixes this as it is very annoying. the main scroll bar works just not the one of the left side of the screen to view subscriptions. I wish there was a easy fix without having to mess with the style settings. could someone please help me fix this as it is so annoying thanks. I really like firefox better than chrome and I would rather not have to use chrome if i don't have to. is it related to the latest firefox update?

Since the latest Firefox Versions I had the big problem not beeing able to load my localhost domains without beeing redirected to https, after lot of searching I've found this solution to be working (for those of you who are struggling to get it working as well):

1. Type in about:config in your adress bar 2. Search for: network.stricttransportsecurity.preloadlist and set it to false 3. That's it, you should be able to get to the normal http version of your site

Ever since the new update(s) my FF gets laggy from time to time (scroll wise). It's like my FPS drops when trying to scroll through the pages. It happens randomly. The only way to get it back to normal is to minimize the browser and maximize again. What's going on? This is a really annoying problem, and I don't want to switch to Chrome or something since I've been with FF for over a decade.

A blog I posted to for the first time from Firefox was able to access my Facebook profile and link my post to it. How do I prevent this from happening?

When I clicked on "Publish" after writing my post, I was expecting to have to identify myself. I was quite surprised when the site automatically identified me and posted information from my Facebook profile. I had not logged in using Facebook (never do), nor clicked any Facebook related icon of the "Like" type.

I barely use Facebook, don't trust it, and definitively don't want websites to be able to access this information from my browser. How can I prevent this from ever happening again?

While I was away, my husband opened my browser and got the "We had a problem restoring your tabs" page. Instead of restoring all of the tabs and bookmarking them, he turned the "We had a problem" page into a pin. Shortly afterwards, the browser had some sort of conniption and crashed. When it was brought back up, the pin was gone, along with all of my tabs, which were many. I'm pretty sure I already know the answer to this, but is there any way of retrieving them?

Hi, I'm not a big fan of the black/dark icon for URLs in the new firefox. Can I change that to look like the actual firefox program icon? I've attached a screenshot of the two. The one on the left is the default URL icon, the one on the right is one I changed individually to the icon I like. I can do this one by one, but that's a lost cause. I'd just rather set it so ALL of my URL icons look like the one on the right. thanks! Chad

In Firefox, when you have lots of tabs open, these buttons will apear on the left and right ">"

Is it possible to make it in firefox so when lots of tabs are open, they will shrink like it does in Google Chrome? So there are no ">" and "<" buttons?

Thanks.

Whenever I want to print something and change the settings, that means I click the button settings on the printer menu, firefox crashes. My printer is a Samsung SCX-4200R. My printer also started printing in the wrong size, that means only half of the pages are printed because the size chosen is bigger than the printer paper.

only happens if try to access a page from a drop down list on a certain website. if i right click and open in a new tab it opens the page. if i access the page from a bookmark it opens the page. it is only if i try to use the same tab that this error occurs.

The page isn’t redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.
