Hello, I want your help! Because I want to change the appearance of checkboxes to toggles without affecting the other checkboxes (like rounded checkboxes) using userChrome.css in Firefox.

I'm not friend with CSS, because I don't know much about programming. So, please write me a correct CSS code in a comment.

The attached screenshot will explain my demands:

My Firefox account and associated passwords were left open on another notebook. I have now changed my Firefox sync login password from a different PC and signed out of other devices. Can a user on the previous PC sign in with a password that is saved in Firefox?

Hi Mozilla Suport teams, i am currently using the mozilla for the developer version and the app runs flawlessly, and i love it. But i have some suggestion for the developer at mozilla to make a tab that can group the tab into a fresh tab like the google chrome has, and since i open so many tab in this browser, i would absolutely love it where the feature of grouping tab is available for me, so i can group them in name and leave it there, rahter than open up more than 10+ tabs in a window. Thank you so much

So for folks who hand wrote thousands of lines of Actionscript code for Adobe Flash, it is incredibly upsetting and frustrating that a witch hunt went after Flash which we believe was part of a tactic by google to ensure its ads cannot as easily be blocked. Specifically google used all this "modern web" nonsense to become the monopolistic browser in place of internet explorer and to use that "power" explicitly to bend the future web to their will.

This is so upsetting, there are not words to describe it. And the fact that the "answer" is that folks who spent years and thousands of lines of code for Flash, now "simply need to completely re code everything from scratch in a new language" is offensive beyond recognition.

Please consider removing this "standard" response language or at least acknowledge the awful burden that was placed on folks by the decision to join the rest to remove the most popular web technology that helped build the internet, because google must serve everyone ads. It is just gross.

Honestly, we thought Firefox would defy the witch hunt and keep flash working to differentiate and look after the poor developers who suffered from this terrible, terrible action.

p.s. on the day Flash was officially killed off, chrome had more active "severe" security vulnerabilities than Flash. Thus, chrome is objectively less secure than Flash. I wonder how much google spent on paying news companies to post stuff about how "insecure" flash is and the stupid "modern web." I wonder if said "news" companies checked the claims, or just took the payment and posted their "sponsored content."

Steps to reproduce:

1. Have Google as the default search engine.

2. Type a search string into the address bar.

3. The address bar briefly shows a URL for the Google Search results.

4. The address bar is very quickly overwritten with the original search string.

See screenshot for example.

How do I stop step #4 happening? I want the URL to remain in the address bar, for example to be able to give somebody a link which executes the google search.

I think this is new in FF121.

Hello,

I recently purchased a VPN for my laptop. I bought a designated IP address set to Toronto, Canada. However, Firefox shows my location in Japan.

In my communications with VPN server they believe since whatsmyipaddress shows me where my VPN says it should, but FF shows me in Japan, the problem may be a leak at your end. When I created this account today and set my country to Canada (as suggested by PIA), closed everything and rebooted my computer I had hoped to see Canada (en) when I began a search. However, it still shows Japan.

I value my privacy on all devices and turning off location is the first thing I do. I'm now wondering if FF is getting this location from Windows.

Any assistance is most appreciated. Thank you,

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 6 (20XY005MGE) with Win11 Pro.

All of a sudden, Firefox does not play any sound. I notice that it does not show up in the volume mixer. I tried:

Youtube does not play sounds, the Spotify page notices that it cannot play sound (the spotify App for Windows works fine, though). News sites (tagesschau.de / video, deutschlandfunk.de / audio) play the video, but no sound.

I had the problem a few months ago already but I cannot recall the solution :(

Thanks for helpful hints!
