I seem to be encountering various problems since the update to 73, the main one is the profile folder, I dislike the default location so have previously just put my preferred location in appdata\roaming\mozila\profiles.ini but 73 regularly ignores this and puts a basic profile in the default location and alters profile.ini. Using the profile manager does not get any better results. I am also having problems with the home page, I have set a custom page but 73 often resets this to a blank page or sometimes the default home page. I have had to resort to a 'portable' version as 73 constantly resetting things was getting so annoying but the portable does not work well as a default browser.

I am looking for a bookmarklet, extension or a userscript solution

I have this website (Todoist.com) which is a webapp that has a loading splash screen everytime its opened in a new tab. The only way I know to avoid this constantly loading is to navigate pages on the same tab

Searching all over the web there are solution and extensions to store the current tabs URL to the clipboard but I cant seem to find a single extension to open a URL in clipboard on the current tab

I used to do this through the UI (alt-d, then ctrl-v ) before but I don’t have this option any more.

I can open any link from windows explorer or command line but it is always opened in a new tab or a new window. Any help would be appreciated.

Recently upgraded to 78 from 68. Reader view in 78 has a very distracting actions box (not sure how else to describe it) with options to quit reader view, type controls and audio), which I would like to remove.

Does anyone know how to completely remove this box? Can always use the back button to return to page without reader view.

Please see screenshot.

Note, logged in from Waterfox, since for some reason trying to login with FF 78 rejects exact same login credentials. Inexplicably getting "account not active."

Not sharing data since Waterfox is irrelevant here.

I'm customizing Firefox's look via a userChrome.css file. The only thing I have in my userChrome.css is the following

/* Focused tabs color */ .tab-content[selected="true"] {

 opacity: 1.0 !important;
 background-image: none !important;
 background-color: #797979 !important;

}

which should change the selected tab's background color to #797979.

However, if I check the colors with an external tool (Digital Colour Meter for macOS) I can see that the selected tab's background color ranges from #747474 to #797979, when I'd expect a uniform #797979.

Why am I seeing these inconsistencies?

As in I start typing now at the start of -> www.google.co.uk/

Hi, On Linux systems running Firefox, you're able to switch directly to any open Firefox tab using the key combo Alt+1 for the first open tab, Alt+2 for the second, and so on. On Windows, this shortcut is instead Ctrl+1 and Ctrl+2, respectively. I'd like to use the Alt key instead of Ctrl, and I'm running Windows. Is there a simple extension or setting I can change to do this?

Apologies if there's an obvious solution to this, I couldn't really figure out how to phrase the question, so when I searched for answers, I'd only get things related to Alt+Tab, which is not what I'm looking for.

Thanks a million!

Ok I use firefox as my main browser. I also access many other windows 10 machines remotely with google remote desktop.

It no longer works as soon as I click on the remote computer within google remote desktop my Firefox the tab closes/refreshes and immediately goes to a "new tab" screen in Firefox.

I have tried google chrome with no issue so something very recently has changed I assume with Firefox.

Hi there,

While using Firefox Lockwise and being the newbie that I was on it, I accidentally overwrote a password for an email address by clicking 'Update' when generating a password for a different email address. So now Lockwise doesn't show me the old password that I had for it but only the new one at the new date but doesn't show me the old one (thank you Lockwise!) . Is there a way to get my old password back from Lockwise ?

My email provider encrypts messages so although I've been able to re-access my account, I can't read messages without knowing what my old password was !

Thank you, SH

Everytime I open a new window in Firefox, my cursor will jump from the top bar search field to the 'synced tabs' sidebar after a couple of seconds, usually in the middle of me typing out the url of a web address or entering keywords for searching.

It is completely maddening to have to, every time, delete the rest of the letters from the sidebar, and reclick (it takes about 3x) in the main field at the top before it will deselect the letters already typed and allow me to keep typing.

How to I disable this 'feature'?

Thanks! Segue
