Is there a way to always show the tab close button on the tabs? Or perhaps to show the button on hover of the tab? Chrome does this and I find that very helpful, in cases where I want to close a tab and do not want to re-open that page.

Some context: When you have many tabs open (I know, who does that?) and you want to close some of them, but do not want to select those tabs, currently you can right-click and scroll through the menu to the `Close Tab` option. This is slow and a bit clunky. The `Close Tab` menu option is buried in the bottom-middle of the list.

This issue is somewhat complicated by the fact that I use the excellent Auto-Tab Discard extension to discard/sleep tabs. (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/auto-tab-discard/) So when a tab is discarded, and you click on it, the tab reloads. Which is silly when you just want to close it.

Anyone aware of a way to always show the close-tab button, or show on hover?

Thanks!

Is there any way to prevent a website from adding history entries in the back button dropdown menu just because I clicked a button, which opened a confirmation modal, and closed the modal, remaining on the same initial page?

For instance there is a site I use, which has a list of my posts, with buttons to delete the posts. I click the delete button, this opens an "Are you sure?" modal window,… (read more)

For instance there is a site I use, which has a list of my posts, with buttons to delete the posts. I click the delete button, this opens an "Are you sure?" modal window, I click delete, the modal closes, I am on the same original list page with the same URL, but now I have another pseudo-page in my back button history that I have to go through.

If I do this with three more posts, I will have an additional three back button history dropdown entries to navigate back through.

When I exceed the number of entries shown in the dropdown, I have to keep clicking through the quasi-paginated list of duplicated back button history entries for the same exact page, to get back to the page I was on before ever going to the list page.

I have my web application built using angular v8.0. In one of the page, we construct a date field in the corresponding component.ts file as following.

data: new Date(modifiedAt).toLocaleDateString('en-US',
                          { weekday: 'long',
                             year: 'numeric', 
                             month: 'long',
                             day: 'numeric',
                             hour: '2-digit',
                             minute: '2-digit' }),

Here modifiedAt is variable of type Date. The data attribute is then passed to an HTML template in another component.ts file and using date pipe from angular framework, we format this value as shown in below code snippet to display it in UI.

<span class="table_data-wrapper" title="{{ data | date : 'dd LLLL yyyyy h:mm a' }}">
      {{ data | date : 'd LLLL yyyy h:mm a' }}
    </span>

Now in Firefox 101.0.1 when this page loads and tries to display this value, we are getting the following error in the browser console.

ERROR Error: InvalidPipeArgument: 'Unable to convert "Wednesday, April 13, 2022 at 09:08 PM" into a date' for pipe 'ht'.

The same piece of code with no change in the 2 code snippets mentioned above in bold works just fine with older versions of Firefox. For e.g. with v 100.0 it works just fine and renders the date value appropriately. This issue is causing other things to break on our application in production. Can some one please provide help on what might be going wrong here ?

Thanks, Maneesh Sharma

At first I thought it was a facebook problem, but the issue started appearing in other places (gmail, youtube, etc). I can be writing something in a comment box, word doc, chat window or whatever and if I select some text and hit copy or cut, the entire browser absolutely locks - can't click on anything or do anything - for MINUTES at a time. There's no CPU, disk read/write, or other system usage spike to indicate what's going on - Firefox just stops and is completely unresponsive for a very long time.

This is new as of the past couple weeks, I think? I hit it once and didn't think much of it but now I'm getting hit by it daily just about because I'm more active on social media, email, and other things lately.

wtf? I have not installed any new extensions in a very long time.

Recently got a new computer. Log in to gmail and after about 5 to 10 minutes of being in gmail I get an error message saying the connection failed and it must reconnect. Its not a internet issue. I can still go other places in a browser or have access to anything on the network. It is only Gmail. This didn't happen before on my old computer. I have reinstalled Firefox, gutted and reinstalled Firefox, tried it with a new profile. Tried it with the profile from my old computer. I cannot get it to stop. I found a setting online for HTTP time out for Firefox. I did increase that time out to 10 minutes but that did not seem to resolve the issue. It isn't a network connectivity issue from what I can tell as I don't lose internet or have any issue access other resources both locally or on the internet.

Entire screen taken over by what I think is a Bogus security alert. Claims to be Apple Platform Security - *** ACCESS TO THIS PC HAS BEEN BLOCKED*** ... it has been infected with a Trojan Spyware This is followed by phone numbers to "contact Mac Support - 1-833-798-2936— (plus another number)" I have contacted Apple and APPLE SAYS: they would never send such a notice. IMPORTANT: This only occurs on FIREFOX. It won't go away when I shut down or even if I erase and reload Firefox app. NOTE: It does NOT happen with Safari.

Google docs, drive problems in browser

I have been having problems with Firefox and google doc/drive interface over the past few weeks. Firefox bugs out after I begin working with google docs each session. A few specifics: 1. I typically have a few different tabs w/ different google docs open. After initially opening them, I get a 'you are not connected' message and can't work/edit the docs - yet my internet/wifi connection is fine and all other apps work. 2. Then I can't visit bookmarks or other google docs saved in my browser history. I click to open and nothing loads/tab stays blank 3. Google is also my default search engine - that won't initiate either 4. The upper right corner of google docs (where my google account/name are linked) doesn't load, and I can't click or get functionality on changing accounts or seeing what other users are in the doc

It's become very problematic - I have searched help articles and can't find anything to remedy it. Thinking of switching to chrome b/c it's causing significant work disruptions for me. Any advice?

After my Browser automatically updated to 88.0.1 (i unfortunately ignored the popup to update Firefox for a while) i started it and my Login data was gone. Extensions, Bookmarks, anything other than Lockwise Data was still there.

I made an account (this one) as i previously did not have one in hopes of somehow fixing that; then after searching for solutions i checked for an "old data" file (does not exist) and checked about:profiles (i have a second profile named "default" that has absolutely zero saved data on anything, i dont know where it came from or wheter it was ever used). The profile that i use ("default-release") was active and that was that.

Then i checked Appdata/Roaming/.../theprofile (from the profile page) and was relieved to find that both "logins.jason" and "logins-backup.json" contained my Login data: The Username and Password (encrypted), formSubmitURL, giud, enctype, etc. I made a completly seperate backup in case something i do ends up deleting those. Since the passwords are encrypted i cannot add them one by one to Lockwise.

I dont know why they dont appear when i check my Login data or try to use the data on any Website. Can i manually "import" the file into Firefox so that it automatically decyrpts the passwords?

I was using Firefox and Owl (the addon).

I just upgraded to Fedora 36. I treid installing Owl and an alternative called "Dark Reader" and both cause a message stating they are corrupted.

I enabled dark mode in the browser. Google immediately changed to a dark background which I can more easily see. This site ignores the setting and is forcing me to work with very limited ivsion

I can barely make out the UI. I found what might be a solution at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1356233 but after hours trying to read it I gave up and am wirting here.

It is very frustrating that other sites respond to firefox settings and your support site does not.

I just had a Mozilla/Firefox update. After it was done, Firefox opened. So far so good..... When it opened, the very first thing I noticed is that my bookmarks button was not on my toolbar. The second thing I noticed is that all my bookmarks are gone. GONE!! I use and count on these bookmarks daily, and not they are nowhere to be found.

WHY? This is not the first time that Firefox has had an update and has changed my settings and lost things. Updating is one thing, but there is no reason why Firefox should be changing settings - and now, in this case, wiped my bookmarks clean.

Any help? I'm frustrated and angered that years of bookmarks are gone...... Can anyone help me? Thank you.

Mozilla Firefox was automatically upgraded as I opened my computer. The new version started and the startup page was shown as if I had never used the Firefox browser on this computer before. I've been running Firefox on this computer for at least 6 years. All my saved data was gone. No bookmarks, no saved access accounts. When it asked me to migrate my data I didn't have the option to migrate any of my saved data from my previous version of Firefox. How do I get all my saved data back? I also received a message that one of my my gmail email account had been accessed by an unauthorized party. Is this also part of the installation process?

Please let me know what to do to get my saved data back.
