I've got about 10 bookmarks with links to support pages each about adjusting specific about:config setting to my needs. My job also requires me to change systems lots of times, from Mac to windows to Linux. Is there an easy way I can save my personal about:config changes to a file for easy import on other systems?

Thanks

On occasion, I come across a web page that offers to send an email if you click on the link eg, I was researching regulations for personal care homes in GA and there was an option to send an email to the administrators to ask them for more information.

So, I click on the link and rather than getting the email address, firefox goes to open the "mail" application on my mac.

Well, I never use that application because it is too slow and bulky. I can't use basic text options like bolding or italics and such. Not to mention, it takes forever to load.

I use GMX for mail and it is accessed through Firefox. It is not an application that "lives" on my computer.

How can I get Firefox to respond to these email buttons on websites by going to GMX?

Thanks, Charles

How to remove duplicated entries in history only differenced by URI fragment

When navigating in some pages, specially in google docs, the browser's URI fragment (the part after the #) changes frequently for each page/header/slide, and all of them are stored in the history.

That behavior adds lots of entries in the history and also hinders the usage of the search functionality of the address bar (as all the duplicates are shown instead of shown only one and other pages). I want to keep one entry per document, at least in specific pages like gdocs where the "fragment" doesn't add any useful information and each document can have lots of them.

Is there any way to configure that behavior, to not save every fragment in the history?


To reproduce the above behavior (the same behavior happens in other pages, not only gdocs):

- Open any gdocs document with several headers, or a gdocs presentation with several pages. - Navigate all the document/presentation, and check the history. - Close the document/presentation tab/window. - In a new window/tab, use the address bar to search the document/presentation by the document name: several entries for the same document/presentation are shown (and if they are lots of them, no other different entries with same words are shown in the address bar). - Check also the history: several entries of the same document/presentation are shown (it could be hundreds for long documents, and thousands after seen few documents).

How to access Google Docs menu shortcuts / commands

Greetings all I am a long time Chrome user trying to make the switch to Firefox. Mostly I love it, but one of my biggest roadblocks is Google Drive and Google Docs.

I'm very much a don't-take-your-hands-off-the-keyboard kind of guy and so I am heavily invested in the Google Docs menus and I have all the common menu commands memorized. (e.g., Alt-F, R to rename the current Google Doc.)

The problem on Firefox is that when I press Alt-F, I get the Firefox menu, not the Google Docs menu. So I have to resort to clicking the menu with the mouse instead of using the keyboard shortcut. Not the end of the world, but annoying.

Is there anyway to configure Firefox or Google Docs so I can use the Google Docs menus? Is there any sort of Add-on that would help with this?

Thanks Calvin Powers

How to make FF refresh proxy settings from command line/script?

I configured my Windows 10 Firefox proxy to use system proxy settings, and I have a script can based on different network environment modify the system proxy autoconfiguration script address (HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\AutoConfigURL) in registry to update the proxy settings. Internet Explorer works well - new proxy configuration usually become effective in 1 or 2 minutes after the change. However, each time after my script changes the registry proxy address (without FF restart), I have to go to Firefox Tools->Settings->Proxy to manually change it to another value (in my case it's from "Use system proxy settings" to any other value), confirm it, and then change it back. Then FF is able to reload the autoconfiguration script to make it work. This is really a headache.

I just wonder is there a way to notify FF to reload the proxy autoconfiguration script address from registry from command line so that my script can trigger it automatically after the registry is modified?

Thanks.

Firefox clear history can remove download info. But right-click on icon shows win10 keeps a list; items there can only be deleted one-by-one.

Maybe this is more a win10 issue. How can it be stopped from remembering all downloads, or how can that list be cleared all at once? Thank you.

You can use the mouse to highlight text and use the scroll wheel (up/down) to go through the page. This will not deselect the text/remove the highlight.

But if you middle click to scroll (to get smooth scrolling) the text is deselected.

I don't see why this is necessary, the highlight should be maintained. Of course, middle click should still open clicked links in a background tabs.

A. On the taskbar in windows 11 i cannot immediately see that i have for instance 4 windows open. Is there a possibility to see four firefox icons? B. And when i shut down firefox, then via restart, the windows that i've opened seem to return in a random way when i put the arrow on the firefox icon. Can i set firefox to always put my most used window, for instance the window that has the most pinned tabs, at the left side?
