Hi, Every time I try to open Firefox, a window pops up and asks to let it make changes to my computer. I checked the properties and I am not running Firefox as an administrator, which is what all the help pages said is the problem. I do not want to change the settings in my computer that would make the pop ups asking to make changes go away, as that is a significant security risk. Surely there must be another way to fix this issue? I have used Firefox for years without this problem and it is only just now happening. I love Firefox but this extra step is extremely annoying. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

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

I have long used multirow bookmark toolbar extension to give me 4 rows of bookmarks across the top of my Firefox window on Windows 10. After updating to this latest version, the extension is gone. Any mention of it in about:config is gone. I don't know if it ever was mentioned in userChrome.css but it's not there either. It's as though it never existed. WTH?

Can anyone suggest how to get a multirow display of my toolbar bookmarks? Thanks in advance.

On a related rant: This is why I hate upgrading Firefox. Something useful and common sense always breaks. I'm going to open a separate question to figure out how to get the cursor focus back into the Google search box when I open a new tab using Google as the home page. None of the previous solutions is working with this version. This break in basic functionality has happened after many different upgrades of Firefox and I am frankly sick of fixing the same ridiculous problem over and over.

Hello. I am setting up a site on Linux server using Apache as reverse proxy , with ASP.NET as application server . since installing SSL , I had few mixed content blocking that i was managed to fix using CSP directive in Apache configuration file. site has no issue with all browser except Firefox. the only issue is that in admin section , to configure a option. system will load a js file that simply a dropdown with list of options to choose from . when using Firefox , it tries to redirect that page to login page . for test , i clicked on the link i located in Developer tools , which directed me to login page , entered my credentials, and scripts loads showing the drop down box and ok button. is been 3 weeks i been looking for every solution and i have done everything .. but nothing have worked. now I am resort to having to use other browsers if i need to use that functionality in admin page. In page header file name : login , location : http://MYDOMAIN.ca/login?ReturnUrl=%2FAdmin%2FDiscountRulesCustomerRoles%2FConfigure%3FdiscountId%3D6%26_%3D1702682353293 , which are not correct . and browser such as Brave and Safari dose not show different path and file name and everything is correct. dose anyone know how to fix this .. ? i saw a solution mentioned as stated resting Firefox ,but can not find a way to reset , but i have reinstalled Firefox and constantly having this issue on this single section of the page . Thanks.

Currently running 115.4.0esr, 64 bit... I have auto updates disabled via the json policy, yet every day I keep getting the warning about an update required and must go to download it... How can I disable the warning? It is annoying.

As well, while here in the forums, I did the "about firefox" thing to get the version and despite my settings, FF downloaded an update and wants me to restart to install it... what if I dont want it?

I get that you folks want to make things .... right... but there have been many changes that I am not fond of. Please respect my privacy and let me update by my own choice.

Thanks :)

You can see below my choices for - `1` for light, in `layout.css.prefers-color-scheme.content-override` - `0` for light, in `ui.systemUsesDarkTheme`. - "Light" website appearance AND theme().

But why some websites still darken and blacken background ? Examples are https://superuser.com, https://softwarerecs.stackexchange.com.

This mishap DOESN'T happen in Troubleshoot Mode. But I don't have the Dark Reader extension.

When I restart my Windows 11 Asus ProArt PC or my browsers reopen, the positions of my tabs will shift around. Sometimes the last open tab will move into position one from wherever it was. Other times the repositionings seems random. I had an issue where I needed to reboot 3 times and in one of 4 windows a huge chunk of tabs repositioned in reverse order. I want certain tabs aligned next to others for my workflow. This doesn't happen all of the time if I have been in a window but it happens more often than not.

I have my browsers set up with Tab Session Manager to open one tab next to another. I also made a change a while ago to where if I type in a different website within a tab it will open within that tab instead of opening a new one. I only open a new tab if I want to.

I also find that despite having different sites having been opened in the same tab once I come back to a new session the previous tabs I'd opened there are gone and only the new one remains. That is less of a problem than tabs simply repositioning themselves wherever they choose. But if that is a clue to what is going on, there it is.

i'm currently writing my own firefox user.js configuration and now i'm at the topic "unloading inactive tabs" like microsoft edge does.

so what are the preferences for this kind of topic?

i want inactive tabs which have not been used for more than 5 minutes to be unloaded.

chatgpt gave me this "browser.tabs.unloadAfterDelay" preference but this one doesn't even exist in the about:config preferenes, would it still work if it doesn't even exist?

To problem with same thing. Address-bar work as search-engine I have poor eyesight and have enlarge the browser, and then I type in the search-bar, the the typing move to the little bar on the top, so I can not see what I have typed.

Another problem I have is when I will reach local-servers with Ip-number and the "address-bar" being a search-engine and I get a lot of hit on http;//10.0.0.1 and I cant reach the web-server.

Is it possible to fix that I get a real address-bar and a real enlarged search-bar?
