When saving PDF's, i need them to save like this example.... document(1), document(2)...and so on...where it auto adds a number for a duplicate named item. Under general---downloads, i have unchecked "always ask where to save files". How do i fix this so it saves as it use to?

Hello. When I open a new tab in Firefox, there are top sites that I cannot remove. I have set for there to be 4 rows of top sites, but Amazon is not only not pinned, but when I try to dismiss it, nothing happens. I have tried clearing my history, and editing and replacing the link with another site only creates another Amazon top site square. Any help would be much appreciated as it is becoming a pet peeve! XD

I need the browser text to be larger both on Firefox homepage as well as on websites my search brings up. iPhone has controls that work on it’s own sites and also many sites I click on. Does Firefox have anything similar?

As another example, the text I’m typing here is barely legible for me.

I’m not blind or near-blind. I’m just an average middle-aged person, who started having eyesight problems magically appear at 40.

Hey, thank you for reading this.. I'm really confused to what these are. Every time I click the firefox search bar, other sites that I've been to pop up. Is it just the recent search history..? Sorry if I'm just being silly. I deleted the search history for the discord website but it still pops up when i click on the search bar. I just don't get what that means, and what the grey icon means. If you could explain it to me that would be great

thank you Alec

I've been using New Tab Override for quite some time to ensure that when I open a new tab, my Google home page opens with the tab.

Up until Firefox 80.0, the cursor would land on the Google search bar in the middle of the screen but now it lands in the URL field - most annoying.

Any ideas?

I have Firefox set to always open Google.com when a new tab is opened. Before yesterday's update (Aug 27, 2020) the cursor would appear in the Google search bar on opening a new tab, which is the way I want it. After the update, Google still opens as before, but the cursor is at the from of the address bar instead of the Google search bar. I've tried a couple of things to fix this with no luck. What should I do?

There is a fullscreen mode that prints a window over the full size of the screen without showing toolbars/navigation/extensions... Is there a "full window" mode that do the same, but over the full size of a window? It would be a simple webview in a system window but without the control toolbars. It would be very useful when tiling several Firefox windows without wasting space for toolbars/tabs... This mode should be specific for a window since I do not want to loose the controls on the main screen-wide window.

my question is about security

https://support.mozilla.org/fr/kb/messages-demande-permission-extensions-firefox?as=u&utm_source=inproduct#w_acceder-a-vos-donnees-pour-tous-les-sites-web

Access your data for all websites ; Extensions requesting this permission could: The extension can read the content of any web page you visit as well as the data you enter there, such as usernames and passwords.

Can Addon read paswords ? from all the sites I visit? almost all addons require "access your data for all websites ?" can they all potentially access my accounts?

thank you very much in advance for your answer

Hi, I experimented for maybe 30 mins trying to get rid of a white border at the top of the browser but were unsuccessful and the others mentioning border problems seems to suffer more from a white thick line surrounding all sides...

Basically, I got a new computer and with it the latest firefox update. I never noticed how prominent the top border of the browser is, especially in dark mode and I'm wondering if there's a way to get rid of it and move the minimize/close browser buttons down to the tab section of the browser instead? And if that doesn't work, is there a way to darken the top border to the same black as the rest of the browser?

Kind regards Thomas

Good day everyone,

I am using firefox 80.0.1 (64-bit), on windows 10.

If i set the firefox to not remember history, the add on button beside the address bar will be missing and a [flexible space] will be there instead.

If i revert the setting to remember history then the add on button will appear again.

How can i set the icon to appear if i want the setting to not remember history?

Thanks

Dear all,

I cannot install any add-on as Firefox, provides me (instead "+ Add to Firefox") a button:

"Only with Firefox - Get Firefox Now" (see attached image).

I have Firefox version 80.0.1 (64-bit) installed.

Any idea how to get this sorted out? Would de- and re-installation of Firefox work?

Best!
