Hello! I have a problem with my title bar buttons. No matter which theme I put on, they always have a different color than the rest of the theme (as you can see in the attached image). I tried searching for a solution, but nothing works. I tried troubleshooting, messing with the code (userChrome.css), but it's pointless. Maybe I did something wrong?

Hello dear volunteer,

I use Firefox from Germany and have the current version 106.0.5 (64-bit). In Firefox 'Settings -> Home -> Firefox Home Content' the whole 'Recommended by Pocket' option is completely missing. I want to enable 'Recommended by Pocket' but the option has disappeared since Firefox was last updated. The update went through 2 hours ago today. Before the update, the 'Recommended by Pocket' option showed up and was enabled and working on the home page.

Thanks very much!

The confirmation for whether to open a link in its default container has disappeared - how can I turn it back on?

Pretend I have examplesite.com set to default to my "example sites" container.

If I opened a "personal sites" container tab and typed in examplesite.com, it would ask me if I want to open it in that container or the default container.

It no longer does this, but instead just changes it to the default container. I don't know if it is because of an update or something else. I've looking in the settings, but can't find anything about this.

I frequently open certain sites in multiple containers, but still the majority of the usage is in a single container, so I have them set to a default. Currently, however, I have no way to open these sites in anything but their default container. I am using Firefox Developer Edition 107.0b9 (64-bit), but I also see it in regular Firefox 106.0.3 (64-bit).

Hopefully there is a configuration that I can set somewhere! Thanks :)

Scrolling was changed in recent update to where you would go back a page if you were already all the way to the right and still scrolling right. This also occurs if I'm moused over a video player and scrolling right, even if I'm not all the way right on the page. Is there a way to disable this functionality, maybe through config files? Ideally, I'd be able to disable it only when moused over a video, because it prevents me from panning if I'm zoomed into a video. I don't mind it otherwise. Thank you.

I use Visual studio to develop .net applications. Visual studio gives me the option to test pages in the browser. If I select Firefox as my default browser, and load the page, I need to modify the URL to add ?usr=max in order to get access to the application. If I do not modify the URL, the page redirects away from the current page.

In IE 11, I can press the escape key to stop loading of the page and change the URL because the page address appears in the address bar. In Firefox, the address bar is blank after pressing the escape key. How do I get Firefox to show the address it was trying to load when the cancel loading command is issued?

I download an attachment from an email, then drag and drop it into an app. Then I click on the attachment in the app to check it. It used to open in a new tab on the browser next to the app I'm working on. Suddenly, today, when I click on the attachment it sends a new name back to the download box and ignores changes I have made to the attachment. How can I get it back to showing in a new tab on the browser?

Firefox 106.05

Pre-Quantum there were a couple addons that captured videos and offered the option to send it to a designated third party download manager. I believe one of them was Flashgot.

Is there no way to do this in today?

Why are built-in browser download managers so primitive and slow?

Essentially the same question as https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1321794

Is there any way to disable or change these search keywords? All I appear to be able to do in the search bar settings is disable the auto recommend feature, not the actual hotkeys themselves, and I find them incredibly inconvenient/annoying.

If not, why not?

Hi,

since a week or so, I haven't been receiving push notifications from twitter on firefox. I'm still able to receive them on other browsers such as chrome. I've been using push notifications for months, but according to twitter settings, push notifications are no longer supported by firefox?

I gave twitter permissions to send notifications through the settings. In about:config, I've set push.dom.enabled to true. In windows Background Apps, I've toggled twitter on.

Is there any other option I can try in order to fix this problem? Or could it possibly be related to the firefox version?

Recently almost every day firefox has been asking me to update, which I do, but it seems like it's only getting downgraded somehow, since somehow push notifications are no longer supported. Is v107.0 the latest version?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I have long been using the developer version of Firefox as my mainstay for browsing and getting Internet-related work done. Until I upgraded to 108, the Window menu remained as I set it -- in the order that I opened windows. As I have tabs grouped by subject, this worked out well given the breadth of IT and academic work that I've been doing.

Now with Firefox auto-alphabetizing the Windows menu, I'm effectively losing my tabs. Is there any way to fix this and revert to the old behavior of organizing by order-of-open-window?

For what it's worth, I'm running the latest developer version Firefox on macOS Ventura for ARM.

Starting some time ago (not sure what update it was), my system buttons turned transparent on my Firefox installation. It happens whenever I use any light (white taskbar background, system pages backgrounds, etc.) Firefox full theme, and there are many tabs in the window (the buttons start to glitch as I open more 'live' tabs, then go completely; empty ones don't seem to count). They are still functional, just transparent. The problem is not specific to my main profile, I have reproduced it on clean profile with only a theme installed (so, no addons are involved). It doesn't happen, though, when I:

  • use any dark theme
  • use a Firefox Color theme
  • activate Troubleshoot Mode (obviously, as the themes themselves are not enabled)

WTF? Any further ideas to investigate?

I have a bookmark for smartcanucks.com - which is a grocery flyer website. Yet every time I type "sma" into the address bar it says "Firefox suggests smallfarms.cornell.edu". I turned off all suggestions for FF unless they come from bookmarks - and that Cornell site isn't bookmarked. It's absolutely infuriating. If it won't stop doing it I'm simply going to uninstall FF. If this some sort of forced advertising or something?
