In Linux Ubuntu I created 4 different launchers for 4 profiles.

Firefox opens the different profiles correctly, but the name of Profile 4 is displayed in the title bar for all windows. This causes confusion when I'm using the different profiles. Furthermore, the icon displayed in the icon bar is also the same for the 4 profiles, although I have configured a different icon for each profile. I ask for help as I need each instance to have its own name and icon displayed correctly.

The launchers look like this:

firefox-profile1.desktop: Name= Profile 1 Exec=firefox -P profile1 --no-remote Icon=~/.local/share/icons/profile1.png

firefox-profile2.desktop Name=Profile 2 Exec=firefox -P profile2 --no-remote Icon=~/.local/share/icons/profile2.png

firefox-profile3.desktop Name=Profile 3 Exec=firefox -P profile3 --no-remote Icon=~/.local/share/icons/profile3.png

firefox-profile4.desktop Name=Profile 4 Exec=firefox -P profile4 --no-remote Icon=~/.local/share/icons/profile4.png

My issue is that I have a huge amount of likes in my Instagram interactions and I would prefer to not have to just manually scroll. There are extensions that if the scrollbar is at the edge of my browser screen they all work. but sadly if its a scrollbar not at the edge of my browser screen they do not take affect.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/autoscrolldown/?utm_source=addons.mozilla.org&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=search


if the solution is with javascript in console, or to edit the html

just inform me what you need me to get to get from the body inspect element in order to know what element is the scrollbar i will do that for you!

i just want this to be able to be autoscrolled, but the extensions wont do it

if someone could help me id really appreciate it

Maybe my cat walked over a certain key and disabled something or the new version of firefox won't let me cycle through previous typed chat messages anymore. while streaming on twitch i have to repeat certain chat messages which i did by typing the up and down arrows. lately it doesn't work in firefox anymore (OBS has a chat box which still has this function tho) is there an option to disable/enable cycling through previously typed text and which key does that?

How to create timer around remote settings

The issue I am facing, and for which I direct my question to all you intelligent beings, is that my network is being hammered by connections to firefox-settings-attachments.cdn.mozilla.net.

When looking at the squid logs, I see the following: access.log:1678216931.488 170104 1.2.3.155 TCP_TUNNEL/200 11400353 CONNECT firefox-settings-attachments.cdn.mozilla.net:443 - CARP/1.2.2.11 -

If I understand correctly, this connection is to download new files that pertain to security, cert revocation lists, blocklists, plus a bunch of non-security related stuff.

The question is, how do I make this file downloaded as small as possible while still keeping the security bits... (saw this page, and followed what I thought pertinent https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections) The second question is... can we do a scheduled window to perform these downloads?

If you are asking why I am having network issues over 11 Mb, the answer is that all my clients go through a corporate proxy... We have many thousand devices and last time we choked the network with 80GB downloaded on a timeframe of 15 min.

Thanks much!

Hello, I've got two profiles, 'Home' and 'Work'. I run two Firefox windows with these profiles. Now, I want to open a link from another application, like Slack or terminal, and want it to be opened in some predictable Firefox window. Now it depends, probably, on which Firefox window I opened last. So I want to be able to select in which window the links should be opened: I see it as marking a window as the default one. Note, that I don't want to set a default account, as there's no default account for me, I always choose which account to use when opening Firefox.

Thanks.

Thanks, Jeff

I've been making my own Firefox theme using the Firefox Color extension. I uploaded an image but I can't figure out how to show the image on the new tab screen. Setting the new tab page color to transparent only makes everything white. I know the image is uploaded correctly because I can see some of it in the toolbar and tab list. Is it possible to show the image on the new tab page?

I have different login forms on different sub domains so I always get a huge lists of different logins. and also I get my password for the basic auth from the web-server on my login form.

I also consider this as a security risk when different sub domains belong to different parties and I accidentally put my password into the wrong form.

Can I config Firefox the way that I get only passwords in the list that match the exact url or at least the (sub)domain?

Another Question As a Web-developer can I do something that my client don't experience such a mess (like giving the login form a special id so passwords are restricted do this particular form.

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.

As per this issue I reported a while back, I was experiencing odd issue with automatic redirect to HTTPS for some private development sites.

I finally found a fix for the issue. The problem appears to be with DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials Extension which apparently *may automatically redirect to the http site. In order to prevent this, I added my development sites to 'Unprotected Sites' and this prevented DuckDuckGo from doing the automatic redirect to https.

  • - Odd thing is that I had multiple domains pointing to the same web instance and only one of the domains was having this issue with the DDG extension. Both were going to the same IP through a HTTP proxy. The proxy and web server were not the issue. This symptom points to an maybe an issue in Firefox....

In summary, be wary of odd redirects and the DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials extension if you are doing web development work.
