Hello there,

I've recently switched from Firefox to Firefox Developer. I've noticed that while in FF, I am able to change the default fonts (such as San-Serif font to Inter, and Monospace font to Monaco), but in FF Developer, I am unable to change the fonts to anything but the defaults. Can someone help me fix this issue, or is this issue a feature of FF Developer edition?

Thanks a lot, dodeca12

I installed the uBlock Origin add on to stop ads while watching youtube. I restarted the computer. uBlock Origin is in Add Ons, and is switched on. However, I am still receiving ads. First ad is before the clip plays. After 5 seconds, I can end the ad. Second ad is really intrusive. It interrupts the clip. Perhaps I misunderstood the capabilities of uBlock Origin, or how to use it. I would appreciate any recommendations Firefox version on my Windows 7 PC is: 79.0 (64-bit) Thanks.

Hello good people, This is rather a request for advice than an issue report. I' ve learned about the facebook container add-on and wanted to know if there is a need for it if someone was making sure to exclusively open facebook.com in its own profile. Say you set up a profile(from about:profiles) namely "BIg Brothers" for notorious trackers like google, facebook , twitter etc so they can perpetually track each other with simple rules to observe like : - Never open an external(shared) link - Never access any other website through that profile.

Is there a particular feature the add-on is bringing up that the native interface is missing ? The other reason is add-ons are great but they tend to bloat the system impeding the browsing experience. I am the kind of guy who opens 7 concurrent tabs each running heavy js code so the lighter the better.

Thank you in advance,

Dom

Add-ons in version 79 are not holding their settings.

No script, foxclocks in particular.

Every time I log out & log back in later I have to reset everything.

I don't have time to be resetting the add-ons all the time.

I was using Sync thinking it would be easier but I found it to screw things up worse so I logged out of FF acct..

Is anyone else having issues with add-ons holding their settings in ver. 79.0?

Hi all!

I started using Firefox a few months ago to try and get away from Chrome (great move!). I use it a lot for work, but also a fair amount for personal use. Is it possible to create different ‘profiles’ on your account?

For example, I would like to use the Sync feature to sync my work Bookmarks to my phone and PC, but I want to keep those separate from my personal ones. Allowing Firefox to toggle between a work profile and personal profile would help this out.

I’m using Firefox for PC and iOS.

Thanks Casey

I am using "browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground" so some links (ones that normally open in new windows) open in tabs in the background instead of immediately getting focus. I am using this functionality for purposes of one specific website. Unfortunately, I do not like this behavior to happen on all websites. I tried turning "browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground" off and then control+clicking and middle clicking on the links, but this is not working to open them in the background. Is there any other way I can turn off "browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground" but selectively open the links I am using in the background? Perhaps there is a button other than 'control' I can hold while clicking or there is an extension?
