Suggestion: Make Find tool stay on, from tab to tab.

I find it annoying that I have the Find tool on, then open another page in a tab and it's off, or navigate away from a page and have the Find box go away. That box isn't very big and in the way, and it would much better to keep that box open ALL THE TIME. Having to press CTRL+F evertime I need it, is painful. Okay, so I'm lazy! But I don't think it would impair the user's ability to view a page. That row it sits in is as high as only one line of text!

How about implementing this, Mozilla? I mean, your browser is the browser of choice. It's superb at viewing images and retrieving image information. It plays Youtubes and other videos flawlessly. It's as fast as Google's Chrome at performing a search across the net. Firefox wrocks! It would only wrock a little more if one could enable this feature and leave it on all the time. I do a lot of research, and finding a phrase on a page at Wikipedia or elsewhere is performed often. So let's allow new tabs to have the tool on if it is already on, and let's leave it on until we purposely turn it off.

Please?

I can't install a browser theme that I made on the Firefox Color webpage. (EDIT: SOLVED)

EDIT: Never mind! I was being dumb! I had to install the extension!

From "about:preferences#general" I click "Extensions & Themes" on the bottom left side.

This takes me to "about:addons" where it says "Feeling creative? Build your own theme with Firefox Color." at the bottom.

I click the second sentence which is a hyperlink that then takes me to "Firefox Color", the website to make your own themes.

I made my own theme using the "Custom colors" and "Custom backgrounds" and then saved it using the "Save" button that has a heart above it on the ribbon at the top of the page. This adds it to the "Saved themes" tab on the ribbon that includes (from left to right) "Preset themes", "Custom colors", and "Custom backgrounds".

However, when I go back to "about:addons" to apply my theme, it is not there, even after refreshing the page.

There is no "Save" (aside from the one that put the theme into the "Saved Themes" tab), "Install", or "Download" buttons on Firefox Color for my theme as far as I can see.

So, what am I doing wrong? I'm about 99% sure that I am being big dumb right now and missing something glaringly obvious in this whole process.

I appreciate any and all help or advice! Thank you in advance!

Hello, I am using firefox in my laptop running windows 7. There I cannot make it to fullscreen mode. When I try to do that, it looks like the attached image. That strange thing comes in up-right corner, covering the controls, and blocks the whole window going fullscreen. The problem disappears after an update or changing the theme or reinstalling firefox completely. But it starts again after few days. Feeling irritated.

This was asked in 2011, but the solutions are not compatible with the present 2017 version. I routinely Override the colors specified by the webpages going back and forth between "Only with High Contrast Themes" and "Always". I'd like to create either a custom hot-key (preferred) or a menu bar toggle button to go back and forth between these two choices. The option chosen needs to be compatible with the latest version of FireFox. Any suggestions?

Hi I am a front end developer and I am sure that this is not the first time that someone is mentioning this issue. Your browser is a pain in the neck to stay polite. Why can't you provide a way for us to display scrollbars like your friends with Chrome?? Is it that hard for such a small thing.. Thanks to you guys I can waste so much time figuring out how to make a functionality look just decent with your ugly scrollbars. I recommend Chrome to all my users now. Have a not great day.

PS: I realize this is not a question, but now I feel better.

Now that FF has updated to version 50, it has revealed a 1 pixel pipe thing in the URL bar. I'm looking for the CSS code to remove it. I have a list of 'display:none' stuff and looking to add that to the list if anyone knows what it's called.

Is there a addon that allows me to open new tab when I enter the url or search content or when I click the bookmark? I used to have "Tab mix Plus" in the old version of Firefox. It does not work in the new version. I know you can use "Alt+Enter" or use the middle click to open url/bookmark in the new tab. But I want it to be the default style. Thanks!
