cmd+numbers on alphanumeric keys should switch to respective tab (cmd+1 to 1st tab, cmd+5 to fifth...). With CZ keyboard layout on MacOS, cmd+1 does NOT switch to first tab, it Zooms In instead. No other browser (Edge, Safari, Opera, Orion) exhibits this behaviour. Other numbers work as expected.

FF 98.0.2 on Monterey 12.2.1.

How do I fix this? Thanks.

I am asking a question I have seen asked a hundred times but I've never seen answered. I will start with firefox is NOT in full screen. A number of updates back all tabs but the one currently being viewed has become blacked out. All that is visible is a firefox symbol or if it's a search page, the google symbol. Not the page title as before. Before the update all tab details were visible at all times. How do I revert to having my tab details being displayed so I don't have to go through all tabs to find the one I want. I don't want to know another way of finding a particular page I have open, just how to bring back the tab information as it always was. I'm very close to changing browsers because of this tragic improvement firefox has implemented.

Why why why why is FF forcing download of pdf files? It is a horrible problem for me.

Especially because I am a university prof and, in the classroom, constantly display (my own!) files from the course management system on the classroom devices. I DO NOT WANT MY FILES SAVED ONTO THE (PUBLIC) CLASSROOM DEVICE. Never mind multiple copies as it will download EACH AND EVERY TIME I open it.

I have been looking everywhere for a solution or a way to disable this feature, there seems to be no such option but I am seeing a lot of posts from people who object to this as much as I do.

After many many years of loyally using FF and a paid subscriber to some Mozilla services, I am afraid I am going to have to give up using FF is this isn't fixed NOW.

Hi, for me the most intuitive behavior for creating new tabs is to insert after current when using the keyboard shortcut, and inserting at the end when clicking the plus sign at the end of the row. I'm making the switch from Chrome and the Open New Tab Here extension enables this distinction. Curious if there's an existing solution, or would an additional config setting be required?

Hello Team,

Firefox does not play well with how you customize keyboard shortcuts on Mac i.e. Go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts.

By default - Move Cursor to Address Bar - Cmd+L Bookmark this Page - Cmd+D

I would like to switch these two shortcuts but there does not seem to be any way. Please help me out.

Thanks, Naman

Every now and then I do this. I see a picture and think, that would be fun in my wallpaper folder. I right click the image and click, "Save Image As..." Right below that option is, "Email Image..." Every now and then a little tick of my hand or finger, and I end up selecting the E-mail option. This is automatically set up to connect to Windows Excel. I don't use Windows Excel. I don't even have it installed. I don't want it installed. The computer freezes for a bit and finally gives up and tells me something about the program not being installed or set up properly or whatever. I've forgotten what it said. Anyway, afterwards, the right-click "Save Image As..." and possibly other options don't work until after I reboot the computer. I will NEVER right click an image to e-mail it. I do that from my mail program. How do I remove the option from the right-click menu. I tried looking it up, and found a lot of related stuff but they proved unhelpful.

I stupidly update firefox (76 > 77) and malwarebytes (see subject) on a single reboot. Went to run firefox and malwarebytes gives me a ransomware alert and closes firefox.

After some grumbling and other noises, I manged to get firefox running in safe mode and disables all add-ons. Firefox runs like a dream. Started to return add-ons one-by-one and soon had a list of issues (I gave up after five add-ons as it was just driving me mad to re-install firebox after malwarebytes quarantined it.

Of the five add-ons, three have caused the ransomware alert: Ghostery (alert), Start Page (OK), No Script (alert) OneNote (OK) and Save Page (alter).

Is anyone else having issues with the latest malwarebytes update?

I have submitted a support request to malwarebytes.

I am using Firefox 77. I thought I had the URL bar fixed, but I can not find the setting any more to turn off this expanding behavior. I have tried to make files and copy "userchrome" codes from the internet, and apparently I am not qualified to do that. I really dislike this new "feature" that jumps out at me for no apparent reason and serves no apparent purpose.

How to disable auto-selection of URL when clicking in the urlbar?

At some point (I usually use the more stable ESR version of Firefox on most computers, so I don't know exactly when), Firefox seems to have changed so that when you click in the urlbar, the entire URL gets highlighted.

In Firefox 77 (I am currently using a computer where the ESR version is not in the distro repo), this seems to have further changed (with the annoying and ugly self-bloating urlbar that many people hate), and even though the text appears to be selected, it is not actually "selected" as far as Linux/X copy/paste is concerned (that is, it has not been copied into the copy clipboard).

In the past, it was convenient for me, and wired into my fingers, to:

  • click just once in the appropriate place in the urlbar to activate it, if I wanted to edit an URL (eg, fix typo, change a parameter, etc),
  • to double-click to select the whole URL and automagically copy it into the X copy clipboard. I could then just middle-click to paste the URL elsewhere for further use (eg, into an email). Anyone who uses X regularly knows that this is an essential core feature and part of everyday workflow.

This new auto-selection feature does not appear to work properly with X copy/paste: it seems that I now have to triple-click:

  • once to activate the urlbar (and (only) "select" the URL),
  • again to unselect the URL,
  • and, finally, a third time to re-select the URL and trigger the X select/copy function.

Is there a way to revert the previous behaviour, so that the urlbar is only "activated" with single-click, and requires double-click to actually select/copy the URL?
