After the last update to Firefox on my Mac Book Pro running Mac-OS Monterey, I was offered an update to Ad Block Plus. This add-on, AdBlocker Ultimate shows as installed but it won't run at all and shows as disabled and my existing AdBlock Plus quits working. I'm using Adblock Plus on my windows based computers with all synced together with the Mac Book and the Windows computers are OK, but not the Mac Book. Is there any way to get my Mac Book working correctly? In addition the last update to Firefox on the Mac Book opens by offering me "Life in Color" every time it starts up. How long do I have to tell it I'm not interested? Thanks for your help.

When printing a page or pdf the color mode is disabled in the print dialog. Is this a known bug waiting to be fixed?

Please avoid suggestions like "use printer dialog" or "set default printing to desired setting from windows"

It is unacceptable to not be able to change color or b/w when needed or e.g. duplex mode

Thank you

PS: did change in print.printer_PRINTER-NAME.print_in_color to false with no luck anyways but even if it did work it's not easy to change every time I need different mode

Time is passing, new versions releasing, but problem are same. Firefox 71 had a good looking colored cleartype. Fonts was clear and pretty. And new versions have a monochromatic cleartype, which makes fonts to look like sh1t. How to take back a colored cleartype? Just tell me, how. I tried many gfx.font_rendering.cleartype_params, but nothing is working.

I hate surprises like these! So far i trusted FF that after an update my layout would still be intact as was, but no they forced this black sh.. onto me as a background for the home page - and no alternative anywhere to switch this back to white or any other options. Do i want to install a plugin for this simple basic option - hell no, i'd rather get rid of FF as my default browser if you think you can play dictators too now. What i miserable attitude you people have. If you change for life )white) to dead (black) you might as well declare you are on your way out as a browser - or offer the option to change that bg color real quick

I prefer Firefox to Chrome but Chrome has it this way for preferences and history, where you can even bookmark it. It treats history, settings and downloads as a page or a tab in its own right, which can be bookmarked, which I prefer. I was wondering if you could do this for FireFox, or via an add-on or if a request could be issued.

Why can't Firefox leave my preferences alone when updating? FF recently updated to 77.0.1 and now when I click on a hyperlink with the middle button on my mouse it opens the link and displays it. WTF? I want it to open in the background not the foreground. That is how I had it set and been using it that way for years. Keep your fucking hands off my preferences. It is a nuisance to have to search through my preferences to find out WTF you did to them and repair it.

This morning I received a response to a question posted yesterday. However, the response was to a link that did not provide a successful result. I'll try to restate the problem more clearly. Problem: when I click on the address bar to initiate a search, seven choices appear in a drop down menu, none of which I want. These choices include options that are NOT resolved by going to Settings, Options, Search and unchecking a search engine choice. As mentioned before, these also are not in my bookmarks or my search history, or in Extensions, so I'm stumped as to where to go to get rid of them.

Please see screenshots, attached. One screen shot is of my choices in Settings, Options, Search. In this shot, the only search engine I've chosen is DuckDuckGo. The other screen shot is of the drop down choices that appear in my search bar. Please notice that the drop down choices include, for example, Reddit, Facebook, and Twitter. None of these sites appear under Settings, Options, Search. Please help. Thank you.

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 Firefox friends, I am using the up-to-date version of Firefox. How can I prevent the search to occur on the URL bar?

I installed two versions of Firefox: Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Firefox Developer Edition. Typically, in Window 10, you can open a browser by pressing Win+R and typing "firefox", but with two versions installed, this always opens the version I don't want.

Since the latter version is always opened, I think it's related to the installation order, but I don't want to reinstall my browser. So is there any configuration available?
