I searched extensively for this and could only find answers regarding bookmarks, not add-on icons. Of course I could still be missing it...

I am upgrading from Firefox Developer 86 to 101.

The spacing between add-on icons has been increased in Firefox 101, making the URL bar shorter:

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-05-26-17-03-36-e06f37.png

Does anyone know of a userChrome.css script that I can use to decrease the add-on icon spacing in Firefox 101, to make it more like Firefox 86?

Webauthn/FIDO2 2FA key support for Firefox Accounts

Hi, Firefox Accounts (Fxa) support TOPT (Google authenticator etc) 2FA, which is pretty good, however it would be great if you could support Webauthn/FIDO2 (Yubikey etc).

There was a Bugzilla bug for this, https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1464888 opened 4 years ago, however about a year ago it was closed wontfix because it "is not currently on our roadmap"

Which seems like a really bad idea? Given that most security people, browsers and OSs are saying "passwordless is the future", and FIDO2 is how that will happen. And even passwordless aside, FIDO2 is a more robust and generally easier to use option than even TOTP apps

When I try and go back on YouTube, for example, FireFox would refresh the page I am on and if I hit it again it would send me too far back sometimes off the website entirely. What I find strange about this is that this only happens on my desktop PC but not on my Laptop. Both are running the same build of FireFox so I am thinking that there must be something in the settings of one that is causing this. It could also be the way I navigate webpages. On my PC I use a side button on my mouse. However, on my laptop I use the gestures on the trackpad.

If anyone has encountered this issue and know a fix please let me know

Two days ago I tried to log into my account at addons.mozilla.org, but the page would not take the codes from my Google authenticator, or any of the saved recovery codes. I was able to change the password via email reset, but no way getting in to disable the 2-factor thing. I can't even seek support from that account, and this is why I'm using a different account to post here.

I want to add that this behavior started suddenly without my having changed anything on my account. The support page that instructs users to reset the clock on Google Authenticator is incorrect, too, since this app does not provide that function (maybe it did in the past, I guess).

Bottom line: I'm stuck and my addons are not getting updated. I'm sure Mozilla wants me to update them, but they have to provide a way for me to log in. Regrettably, it seems to be impossible to talk to a person.

Any help will be appreciated. The account with the problems is fruiz500@gmail.com Thanks!

Hello,

I am trying to change the text highlighting color, the blue color when I select text to copy and paste. It used to be the same color as my accent color in Windows settings, but now it has changed back to blue despite me not changing anything. This same color was also showing in the extension SoundFixer, which has 2 sliders using the same color, which is now blue. How can I change the color back to using my Windows accent color?

I'm using Firefox Developer Edition 104.0b2 (64-bit) on Windows 11 version 21H2 (10.0.22000.795)

Hello. I'm having an issue with Firefox on Windows 10. The browser keeps freezing and then crashing randomly and it's getting to the point where it's interrupting my workflow.

Please oh please diminish the number of updates for firefox developer edition ....

we used to have an update every other month or even once and forever But now it seems firefox is nagging me over updates almost on every time I launch it...

I can understand security patches needd to be installed asap. I do feel however that most updates are little more than bugfixes most of them not even important for me...

please allow me to choose not install those "bugfixes" every single time... or to have it check less often...

My Firefox browser was recently changed from version 102.0.1. to 104.0. With the update, the user surface was changed completely. I have tried everything possible to change back to the earlier surface without success. I have tried to change to an earlier version. The user surface was fine, but my profile was lost! If not possible to change back to the earlier user surface, I would have to switch to a different browser after almost 20 years of using Firefox! Thank you for your assistance, Johann

I keep my settings on "restore previous session" upon startup; because I use several windows and tabs to organize work on different projects and my general workflow.

After the latest update. Firefox (I'm using developer edition for some reason) crashes upon startup. One of the crash notification windows had me open up in safe mode, which excluded my extensions. There (in safe mode) my previous session opened up and stayed open without crashing. I disabled a few extensions that I no longer use and closed several tabs to see if that would effect the crash problem. I then exited Firefox (I couldn't figure out how to exit safe mode otherwise) and reopened via the start menu. Firefox now opens to what is essentially a new session and I can't figure out how to open the previous one. I'm guessing it "refreshed"? Regardless, is there a way to recover my "previous session" or is it lost forever?

I have recently installed Firefox Developer Edition on my Linux Mint 20.3 laptop. It has more than the required resources to run Firefox smoothly but has one problem: (like in this post: https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1200248, the solution for that didn't work...) When I click a link in an external application it opens a new window with one empty tab but the URL won't be opened, neither in the previously open window now in the new window. I would have added a screen recording if possible but here seems to only be a screenshot possible.

Last night, I noticed that the usual Dock icon for Firefox developer Edition had changed from Blue Fox to what looked like the App Store brush/pencil triangle. I restarted but it persisted. Removed the application and re-downloaded and re-installed, but same issue. I then noticed that all the Tools -> Web Developer tools had gone from the menu. Likewise, doing Firefox -> About inserted 'about:preferences' in the search bar, but nothing else happened. Tried launching the settings from the right side hamburger menu, again nothing happened.

Read around a bit, and deleted one of two profiles from ~/Library/ApplicationSupport/..., then tried re-install and restart the Developer Edition, but that complained that a profile was missing. Restored the profile I deleted, but same problem as before.

I'm stumped. Can anyone help with this one please? I'm on Mac, latest version of Mojave.

Thanks

Not a serious bug, but firefox warns about cancelling downloads when trying to switch profiles without actually exiting the browser. Please take a look at the attached image.

If I somehow click on "Cancel 1 Download", it does nothing, just launches the profile I am launching. So the warning actually means nothing, and should be removed.

Thanks.
