Hi everyone :)

I didn't find anything about it: I'm looking for a shortcut to open links in the private window without opening the context menu (right click)

I know that.....:

  • CTRL + Click open in a new Tab (Or middle click)
  • CTRL + SHIFT + Click open in a new Tab and focus on this new tab (or SHIFT + middle click)
  • SHIFT + Click open the link in a new Window

But actually I didn't find any combination to open it in a new private window. Even the context menu "Open Link in a new private window" isn't what I'm looking for as I don't want the new window to be on top.

Is there a way to do it, maybe an extension ?

Thanks for reading, Alex.

就在刚才我随便删了两个文件(真的就是随便删的),不显示页面的火狐奇迹般正常使用了。三四个月了火狐一直打不开(具体是:可以添加新的标签页,不显示初始页面,不能进行搜索,导航栏图标只能点击不能进入下一页面,),重新安装第一次打开显示000002错误当时也懒得搜。 工作原因我重装了下火狐浏览器,发现还是不能用 我用everything 搜索了下firefox文件 随便删掉了c盘Prefetch下两个文件:FIREFOX.EXE-48B00C23 与 FIREFOX.EXE-152BFAA9 之后尝试了重新打开火狐后奇迹发现了火狐可以正常打开了!!!!!


Just now I deleted two files randomly (really deleted randomly), and Firefox, which did not display the page, miraculously worked normally. Firefox has been unable to open for three or four months (specifically: you can add a new tab page, the initial page is not displayed, you cannot search, the navigation bar icon can only be clicked and cannot enter the next page), reinstall it and open it for the first time It was too lazy to search when displaying 000002 error. For work reasons, I reinstalled the Firefox browser, and found that it still doesn’t work. I searched the firefox file with everything and deleted the two files on the c drive Prefetch: FIREFOX.EXE-48B00C23 and FIREFOX.EXE-152BFAA9 and then tried again. After opening Firefox, miraculously discovered that Firefox can be opened normally! ! ! !

Hi don't know if anyone can help...

faceook in it's eternal mission to not allow anyone else to have the data, has changed the url of instagram videos

they now have "blob" before the address, which means firefox can't download the file through ctrl-i media

does anyone know a way around this?

there are insta downloader pages, but it would be nice if firefox could do it itself

After installing Firefox 84.0 (Mac), I no longer see the circular "reload page" tool on the address bar. Is this something I did, or has it really gone away? If it's gone, how do I force a page reload? If I screwed something up, any idea how I can unscrew it ;) ?

How to get a Desktop Icon for a site in App mode, or launch using SSB?!

I cannot find anyway in Firefox, or from searching how to create a desktop shortcut/link of a site I have added as an App after enabling ssb mode. Is it even possible?

I've spent quite a bit of time trying to re-create a userChrome.css file to simulate the App mode, however minimal success only. The best I could gets getting the site I want to launch with no tabs/address bar/title bar which is not desirable as it is missing the Title Bar of the website name, which also is useful for moving the window/app around my desktop. For trying to launch that, I am running it from command line using triggers for an alternate profile withe the customer userChrome.css

user@pop: firefox -P app -new-instance http://www.wolframalpha.com

Is there any way built in to create a desktop link to open a site I added as an app? If not is there any other method that I can use to launch the site, either in my default profile, or a specific profile with a custom userChrome.css file that would have a Titlebar window same as when I manually launch the site in app mode?

What I want to have, is a shortcut on my desktop to launch the window on the right of the attached screenshot without manually having to open Firefox -> Hamburger Menu -> Sites in App Mode -> <selecting site>

I'm using Ubuntu/PopOS 20 with latest version of Firefox Any help would be great. Thanks

Bookmark Location and Bookmark Duplicates

I've got way too many bookmarks collected over the decades stored in hundreds of cascading FF bookmark folders, so, if I need to use a bookmark that I have not used in a while, it's often impossible for me to remember the location, especially with acute CRS due to age and chemo.

You can find a bookmark using view/sidebar/bookmarks but, neither that, nor the bookmark's "properties" show the bookmark's location within firefox's bookmarks.

(It's hard to believe that mozilla can't understand the need to find a specific bookmark's location. There are several addons that meet the need, but I am reluctant to install any addon that I don't find essential.)

Searches for solutions to this need also reveal that finding duplicate bookmarks is an equally important need for many FF users.

So... trying to "think outside of the box" and experimenting, I found that when using the bookmarks sidebar search feature, the search results can be treated just like bookmarks within toolbars and bookmarks folders.

While its impossible to divine where the found bookmark is located, you can drag the found bookmark out of the search results to a location that works with your current memory rather than the location you can't remember. Doing so will remove it from the original location just as dragging it from one bookmark folder to another does.

The same is true for duplicate bookmarks. Duplicates show up in a bookmark search, and, you can delete a duplicate from the search results which removes the duplicate from FF bookmarks...

...obviously, it's wise to look at properties to confirm that the urls match.

Hope this approach is helpful, Beverly Howard

Hallo und guten Tag,

ich möchte gern mehrere websites als Startseite haben, wenn ich den Firefox browser öffne. Wie das geht wird auf der Firefox Seite sehr gut erklärt.

Zwar ist es mir gelungen, google als Startseite durch drag & drop auf das Haus Symbol zu ziehen. Jetzt würde ich habe gern weitere Registerkarten als Startseite festlegen.

Wenn ich (wie in der Erklärung) jedoch auf die Menüschaltfläche mit den drei Strichen klicke und danach auf "Startseite" klicke, ist das Fenster "Startseite und neue Fenster" leider inaktiv, so dass ich nicht weiterkomme. Wie kann ich dieses inaktive Fenster aktivieren. Wo liegt der Fehler.

Ich hoffe sehr, dass mir bei diesem Problem jemand helfen kann und würde mich über eine Antwort sehr freuen. Vielen Dank im Voraus!

Beste Grüße, Sabine

Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) for Ubuntu (running Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS)

So when editing text in a textbox on Gmail, I can press and hold [Shift] and then use arrow keys to select text, but I cannot use Page Up/Page Down to select faster as expected. (Works in Chrome)

Background: Trying to trim long email threads to avoid them becoming infinite and causing a quantum singularity close to where I am sitting.

Not sure if this is a Gmail or Firefox issue.

Anyone have any ideas?

I have installed Firefox and found that although the main body text is the correct size, the text on the toolbars is very small compared to her old one. How can I increase the toolbar font size without altering the main body. Thank you, Andrew

Hi, I dealt with this problem several time and I decided to write down my solution to save of others time. In case you install firefox on Windows 7 and your htm, html files are showing blank white icon instead of little foxxy one, all you need to do to go for registry as below: - I am using Firefox v.84, ues problem is there since firefox v.2 - - Type regedit and go for "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FirefoxHTML-308046B0AF4A39CB\DefaultIcon", perhabs you see a differentt number beside FirefoxHTML or even no number - - Double click on Default key and change the value to "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe,1", not to mention without "" - Don't forget to backup whole your registry before editing it - Restart and you will probably see the Firefox icon on your saved html files

Good luck
