Trying to play a flash game with WASD and other alpha character controls, but every time I hit a "letter" on the keyboard a Ctrl+F find bar opens across the bottom of the screen searching for the letter. When I mouse over the "X" in the bottom right corner to close this, it says "Close Find Bar." I cannot find a way to disable this automatically appearing find function. Every search shows just under 2000 results and they are all of the INDIVIDUAL words, "close" and "find" and "bar." Yet not a single one for the "close find bar" phrase. Help me disable this function please.

Cannot load extensions with background scripts

I am trying to make an extension for my personal use. I started writing a couple lines of code and it works in google chrome, but the same extension gives me an error on firefox.

The extension needs only a background script and needs to listen for tab creation events.

I went to about:debugging and clicked on "Load temporary add-on" and selected my extension's manifest file, it loads, but the console.log calls doesn't work. I noticed it gives me a warning Loading failed for the <script> with source “moz-extension://....../background.js”. with the if of the extension.

I looked a bit on the internet and disabled all addons and started firefox in safe mode, but the warning still persists. I tried to add a background page instead of a script and just calling console.log in that but that still didn't work.

In the end, I went to mozilla's example extensions webpage and installed a couple of them, but none of them worked, so the problem isn't in my code.

Is there any way i can fix this? I can't get a more descriptive error than laoding failed.

Hi, Unless I am missing something, is there a way to display the download server of all in-progress downloads listed in the Downloads Library window, just like the download server is already displayed for completed downloads? Currently, the only hack I found is to right-click all active downloads one by one to copy the download URL, open Notepad, paste the URL and close Notepad at the end. I only need to see the server name, so I can download the next file from a different server, not process the whole URL or even the server name, and I do this every day multiple times a day. I don't understand why this information is hidden for active downloads, where it's more important and useful than for completed downloads, or at least just as useful, depending on your specific usage. There is also tons of space to display the server name just next to the download speed on the "Remaining time" line. Thanks, Chimel.

Those values are not honored by the ctrl + mouse wheel zoom. The mouse wheel only uses increments of 10%. So how do I fix it so the mouse wheel zoom honors toolkit.zoomManager.zoomValues?

When highlighting text in the browser (I've experienced this in all sites including within text boxes where I'm inputting text), I will regularly get a popup to the side suggesting "quick web search" (referring to the highlighted text) and a set of dots to turn it off. This "feature" keeps turning itself back on. I want to permanently disable it because I have no reason to use it.

I don't think it's tied to the search engine (currently defaulted to Bing). I cannot find a setting anywhere in the options menu for permanently disabling it. With my only add-ons being ad blockers, I sincerely doubt they're the source of this pop up.

This feature is exceptionally annoying when it shows up as I'm almost never highlighting text for the purposes of doing a search (particularly when it shows up in a text box, such as one for submitting a comment). Even when I do turn it off from the given menu, it will turn itself back on at some point.

I just enabled FireFox sync, but for some reason I can't seem to get the Bitwarden Extension nor my DuckDuckGo Extension to show up in the top toolbar (top right) like it does on my other computer.

My 2 extensions are installed and running, so not sure why they don't show "up top"

Any help greatly appreciated.

Hey, I'm using Firefox as my PDF reader and I need to do a lot of searching throughout documents. When I use CTRL+F to search for and highlight text, the found text is highlighted in a very light green color that does not contrast well with the white background of the page. Is there a way to manually change this color to make it contrast better so it is more noticeable? Thanks!

How to set default (but not automatic) option for viewing PDF files

How can I set the default option for opening PDF files in Firefox? I'm not asking about setting the automatic handler. I don't want PDF files to open in anything automatically. I want to get the dialog box asking me "What should Firefox do with this file," but I want to set one of the options to be the one that's pre-selected so all I have to do is click OK. (I don't want to have to choose the preferred option each time by clicking its radio button and then OK.)

Recently, these dialogs always seem to have the "Open with Firefox" option pre-selected. Since I usually want to open PDFs with Adobe Acrobat, I have to click on that radio button and then click OK. I just want to click OK, except in the few instances when I want to save the file or use the internal viewer.

So how do I designate the default option?

Microsoft/Windows 10 has removed Firefox from their list of potential default browsers. Most information answering "how to make Firefox my default browser" is out of date as the information says to go to where Microsoft Edge is noted as the Windows 10 system's choice of default browser, then to click on that and choose Firefox from the choice dialog box. Sadly Firefox is no longer in that choice dialog box. Please advise, thanks.
