When ever I use the right click option to open a new tab to copy,paste, or other functions the option will open once when browser open first time. If I right click again anywhere on any page there is nothing however the menu option is there cause if I move my mouse where I think my options are I can kinda find it option will work. I have tried reinstalling and repairing so frustrating. My right click works no issue on Edge and Safari.

User-defined keyboard shortcuts on Mac don't work, unless menu item has been displayed

I've assigned user-defined shortcuts to Firefox on my Mac by adding items to:

    System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> + icon. 

This method works fine in other applications. However, within Firefox these only work after I've clicked on the menu bar and displayed the item with the shortcut.

For example, I have a shortcut to show the Bookmarks Toolbar defined as "View->Toolbars->Bookmarks Toolbar." In Firefox, under View menu I see the item "Bookmarks Toolbar" with the appropriate shortcut key shown next to it. BUT whenever I open a new window I have to show that menu item again before the shortcut key actually works.

Is this a bug?

I've tried different shortcuts, turning on/off private browsing, defining shortcuts under "All Applications" as well as "Firefox.app"

Thanks in advance for your help!

Please see attached image. Whenever I try to install an extension on firefox quantum 68.2.0 ESR it simply shows a greyed out button I cannot press. The only article I can find on this offers the solution that it can be fixed using another plugin (which I can't install for the same reason...)

Firefox should have multi-language support for spell checker

I believe this is common for every non-English user: texts typed will contain both native words and English words. Right now Firefox only supports single language per text field and doesn't even auto-switch between them based on user input without add-ons.

This is different to the experience offered by literary every other software product: MS Word will proof each word independently based on active keyboard, default Windows 10 proofing works in similar fashion in every native Windows app, Chrome will do the same too. Firefox instead highlights everything which is extremely annoying and unpleasant.

I do understand that such feature might have a very big impact on source code, but as it stands today, spell checker in Firefox is unusable for non-English users.

Hi, everyone. Usually, I used browsers such as brave, chromium, chrome. I want to know, maybe exists such add-on which add a context menu css for the inspector, because I don't like the inspector of firefox. Personally for me it is not handy. Honestly, I tried find such addon, but I found nothing. Maybe, somebody help me if it is possible :). I leave some images for clarification. Thanks

JavaScript file uses command ```console.log()``` for showing values and outputs they into console. Next to the displayed result, there is a link to the place where the function was called (the source). I need to copy the displayed result, but when I select text in the console, these links get there.

How do I disable these links so that they are not displayed when data is output?

I looked at the article about keyboard shortcuts, but it didn't say if there was a way to disable any of them. It seems often when I'm typing, instead of hitting the backspace key, I accidentally hit the F12 and it pops into development mode. I won't be doing any development in the near future (or probably any time) so I'd like to disable that one for convenience. Thanks

Hallo! The recent version of Firefox allows to open .pdf in Firefox. However, there is still allways the question how to proceed, even if I mark the box to make this unneccessary in the future. When I next time try to open a downloaded .pdf, the question is there again. (I hope you can understand the problem, I am not a native english speaker). See the attachments.

Best regards Fritz

Adding New Filetypes to Download List

I am following directions on this page, which is supposed to be applicable to my version Firefox 78.0.1 on my Windows 10 Pro 64 system: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/… (read more)

I am following directions on this page, which is supposed to be applicable to my version Firefox 78.0.1 on my Windows 10 Pro 64 system:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-firefox-behavior-when-open-file#w_adding-download-actions

But when I come to the subheading, "Adding Download Actions", it shows a dialog window which is unlike the one I get. Of the two images I've attached, the article shows the larger while I am offered the smaller. The article says the "Do this automatically" checkbox may be disabled, but doesn't mention it being absent: "Is Do this automatically for files like this from now on disabled? This can happen if the website's server incorrectly specifies the Internet Media type of the file. It also can happen if the server assigns "Content-Disposition: attachment" to the file. Could be the case here. Whether it is or not isn't important. What is important, is adding filetypes. I have no qualms with editing the registry if necessary. Can someone help me out with this?

Two things: 1. change default selected option in pdf tab, 2. permission requests not working with 78.0.1

I have two questions:

1st one:

Sadly I didn't know my browser had automatic updates on and now I got updated to 78.0.1. You added this nice feature that allows opening pdf files instead of downloading them or opening them in external software. very good, i needed that sooo many times already when pages forced me to download trash instead of letting me view in browser. My problem is, that I usually need to download files. Still I want to be asked everytime what to do

 -> I want that whenever a download request for pdf happens, the "download file" is selected by default (instead of the "open pdf in browser"). Also I want to be asked so I am afraid firefox won't ask me anymore if I check the "always do this" checkbox. Is there a way to be asked about what to do with the pdf with a different default option than "open in browser"? Or is the checkbox exactly what I need to check? I just don't want to break my browser...
2nd one:

Since personal meetings disappeared we are using WebEx. Until my browser updated whenever I joined the meeting-URL a popup opened that created a "bridge" to the webex app where I would be connected to the room I just opened in browser. Since my browser updated these popups don't come up anymore which makes joining a webex room a ... little bit complicated. The same goes for discord -> before the update discord in browser asked for permission to use my microphone. Now I am not asked anymore if I want to share my mic. Nothing happens and I am muted in discord. Please tell me how to solve this. Thx in advance!

Hi,

About 4 to 6 weeks ago I messed up my main/home/Whatever named file:///home/kline/.mozilla/local/hotlist.html <an html file with 2-deep links to other bookmarks>. Upon reboot I must have done *something* that messed up everything. The "3-dot", "pocket", "star" was either moved leftward or vanished ... Now that clever 4-icon { |||\ } that used to bring up whatever I had bookmark was gone.

Can anybody help me?

I recently reinstalled firefox and now my search suggestions won't work properly. They only seem to work when i check the box "Top sites" in the adress bar section of privacy and security. The suggested sites doesn't change when i check other boxes. It either shows a set selection of sites when i have "Top sites" checked or nothing when it isn't checked. The set of sites it shows when it's checked contains some popular sites and some sites from my browsing history. The list doesn't update and just stays the same.

I want to have "Top sites" turned off and have it so that my most visited sites are suggested first.

Please help, i really want that setting back!
