Hi, I hope you're having a wonderful day, and I hope someone can help me with this.

3 days ago, I accidentally press a hotkey, then the web page becomes smaller, and has empty space around it (screenshot: https://ibb.co/RQ74q3Z ). I attached the screenshot below, too. This doesn't affect other web pages. When I open the same page from my other computer, it happens the same way. I tried [ctrl +] and [ctrl -], but it only changes the font size and doesn't make the space go away.

Thank you for your help.

Hi, I really love everything about Firefox Developer Edition, except the JSON viewer. I'm used to looking at plain formatted JSON like the JSON Formatter plugin provide. But, even thought I have installed JSON Formatter (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/json-formatter/?src=recommended), it only shows this tree/table-ish viewer that comes with Firefox Developer Edition. Is there any way to disable this feature and use a plugin for this, just as in Firefox ?

After dragging my feet for literal years, I've finally updated Firefox past version 57. I'm gradually working out the kinks and getting things looking the way I want, but one thing I can't get to work how I'd like is the address bar.

Setting the density to "compact" fixed a good majority of size issues for buttons and my bookmarks toolbar, but it shrunk the text in the address and search bars to be much smaller than the rest of the text on bookmarks, tabs, etc.

How do I manually adjust this? Before anyone asks, yes I have a userChrome file, I just need to know what to insert to get this working how I want.

For example, the Fox News website used to put banner at the bottom of the page asking me to disable ad blocker but now there is no banner but the ring in the center of the active screen that usually circulates until I get sound continues to circulate and I never get any sound.

I'm trying to automate a part of my daily work on a website I'm using (not developping). I have to crawl several lists on the website, dig an item in the list, to check some values, and do it again and again ...

Im used to developping in Powershell and python, not with a web browser. I have admin rights on the machine I'm working on. I'd like to use this to catch the json answers of the website (all of them), parse the answers for some values, and automate some kind of popup "Hey, This item in the list is between 90 and 100 !"

No code to show yet, that's what i'm looking for : basic solution for json interception while i'm crawling. I have good knowledge of json parsing using python/powershell, the hard part for me is catching the answers ...

A real time export of all json answers of the network console will be a perfect basis for this ... How can this be done with firefox extension ? I just need a base to start.

Thank you very much for any help you can give. And apologies for my average english ...

I have the latest Firefox (72.0.2 (64-bit) installed on my Windows 10 desktop. I also have uBlock Origin popup blocker installed. I have disabled the auto play of audio and videos in my setting. When I open finance.yahoo.com the the videos does not play initially and while you scroll down on the page. However once you start scrolling up or go to the top of the page then the videos start playing. The setting still says that auto play is disabled. This looks like a bug.

How to turn off *distracting* display of trackers blocked in bottom right of web pages for Firefox 69?

I appreciate that Firefox is now blocking third party trackers. But I can't stand having a distracting purple display of trackers blocked in every web page. That is unacceptable to me and I want a way to turn off that distracting display on *every* web page.

I find it ironic that distracting ads are being removed (good!) but Firefox developers thought it was a smart idea to *add* its own distracting information on web pages (sheesh -- at least could we have the option to put that tracker summary in the menu bar? -- I would ideally prefer being able to abolish it from even being seen there).

I am a software developer who doesn't care for web page pollution or distraction from the real content, and a tracker blocking summary in my face on every page is definitely pollution.

I'm going back to Chrome because of this one issue (the ad blocker I use only puts its summary count in the menu bar).

Firefox really goofed by adding its own "ad" on *every* web page for its new feature. Now I need a blocker for those ads!

Hello All, I work for an organization and we are trying to upgrade from 60.7 ESR to 72.0.1 using a automated process. In doing so, I am having trouble having firefox use the current user profile in 60.7 and having firefox 72.0.1 defaulting to that same profile upon initial launch after installation. Instead, the new firefox creates a new profile and uses that instead of using the old profile. So my question is: is there a way to force firefox to use the old profile prior to installing FF 72? If not, is there a way to suppress the creation of a new profile so it is never created in the first place?

Even though the XLSX file in the example (images attached) is identified as such, when trying to open the file, the Launch Application window appears which is for files of "file" Content Type. This started occurring about 3 months ago, after a Firefox Update. I do not know to which version unfortunately. It affects all users so it's not profile related. I tried to Refresh Firefox and Restart with Add-ons Disabled from Tools > Help > Troubleshooting information but it didn't help.

hey guys,

I have another problem with this browser. here is a great example of the problem => go here to my website: http://www.adamevanovich.com (see attached image)

there you can see a pop up dialog that asks for a password. if I enter the right one the first time, it accepts it and saves it in the browser saved passwords. however, if I go into my hosting company's dashboard, change that password, then go back to that page and enter the new password, I get a pop up asking me if I want to update??? I press "yes" or "update password", but alas, the next time i go that freakin page and have to enter a password, the old login credentials are automatically populated!! can you guys help with this too?

Firefox 72.0.1 and 72.0.2 have the same issue, so the latest release did not solve it. My add-ons all stop working, or seem to time out somehow, while still showing as enabled. Removing and then "Undo Remove" of the add-ons restarts this new timeout clock/fixes the problem, but it's extremely frustrating and ineffective.

  • This did not happen prior to 72.0.1.
  • The add-ons do retain my settings even while timed out/stopped/somehow broken, so they are not actually disabled during these outages.
  • This affects all add-ons, so it is not a problem with any one specific add-on.
