Tried reinstalling Umatrix and looking at the customize menu but its not showing up there either (restoring cutomize defaults doesnt help either). All my other addons show up just fine. Not having the Icon makes giving temp rules for sites pretty annoying.

Thanks

Hello and good afternoon, My English is not so good, im Write with translator….

I would like to turn to you after desperately, unsuccessfully, and extremely annoyed looking for a German contact person but not finding it, because I have a problem with your browser. I like to use the Mozilla browser because it can be used very individually. But every time you do a major update, my settings are gone. This annoys you massively and tempts you to change the browser for good. And when I use Edge, I have the German Microsoft support at hand to give them my opinion on the crap they are pumping out. Different with you, there is no German support that is there for emergencies, you look for the wolf and what do you find ??? Nothing .. that sucks ... and had to be said and described here.

Now to my problem ...

I have created a possibility for myself via an additional Chrome folder and other source text (through instructions on the net, since I am only a layman) to display the symbol bar in multiple columns, which class worked. You can structure, organize and do your work quickly. That's what I love about the browser ... but since version 82 was installed, my bookmarks toolbar can only be found on the left side and one below the other ???? I just write down my frustration about it here and yesterday, without receiving any feedback so far, instead of being able to work in a structured way ... do you think that's good, good for using your browser ??? Good for the users ??? No, it's really annoying .... and by the way, this multi-column bookmark toolbar could also be a work of your community ??? Why do others have to do this for you? You always report nicely what you have changed, improved, changed !!!! What I am describing here would be a real improvement, and no matter which version was updated to, the bars would remain part of the browser !!!! And what is it now ???? On my laptop everything is just left and below each other .. annoying .... And it will be damn well possible to finally integrate this permanently into the browser ??? Otherwise you are finally rid of me and I use other browsers, and now I am curious whether someone will reply to this mail and my problem that now, after the update, probably 1,000,000,000 other users will be exactly the same, just maybe you do not write I think I don't get a fulfilling, satisfactory answer for me either!?!?!?!?

Is there a way to change the speed unit used by Firefox when downloading?

Currently, when I download a file, the progress is shown in kilobytes per second. I would like to have that shown as megabits per second, so I can stop wasting time looking up a speed conversion calculator and finding out how the download is doing as compared to what my ISP says my connection is worth. Or, to compare the download speed to any of the speed tests I have done

Can Firefox be configured to open specified pages on the first time it is opened on a given computer session BUT a blank page on subsequent browser openings? I have 3 tabs (email accounts) I like to have open when I turn on my computer. But any time after that, I want a blank page when Firefox is opened. I know how to open to multiple tabs. However, then Firefox always opens to those tabs when I start a new window.

Back several versions ago, a Firefox update moved tabs to the top of the screen, just below the header and above everything else. For me, this is totally counter-intuitive. So I restored the older version of FF and disabled updates. Well now we're at the point where some pages aren't working and I'm being forced to update (v82). And of course, the problem has returned.

Is there any way to return the tabs to a position below the address bar and above the page itself?

And while I'm at it, is there a way to customize the looks of the tabs so that they once again look like the file folder tabs that they once did with the curved top corners? For me, this made them more easily identifiable as tabs.

Addons and Extensions Pages Blank after Reset; Extensions Not Showing in Search

I'm running FF 56.0b9 (64 bit) on Windows 10. It got really slow and laggy. Like multiple seconds of latency after I type to see the letters and tabbing fields. I cleared the cache hoping it would fix but still the same.

Then I couldn't comment on Youtube or open the drop down under my Youtube account icon. It would just show a blank section with a spinning wheel. So I gave up and decided to reset FF.

After I reset FF, I went to look for my extensions and addons to reinstall them and when I click on the Addons puzzle piece icon in FF, it opens up a new tab with a blank page (see attached) with the addons menu items on the left (Addons, Extensions, Appearance, Plugins, Services) and a white main page with a grey box that says What are addons? After explaining what they are, at the bottom it says "when you are connected to the internet, this pane will feature the best addons for you to try out."

When I click the Extensions menu item on the left, it takes me to another blank page (screenshot attached) that says "You don't have any addons of this type installed" with a button that says "Learn more about addons". When I click that, it takes me to the previous page.

The search box in the upper right yields no results no matter what I type in there.

How can I get to that page that shows all the different addons and extensions where I can search for the ones that I need so I can install them?

Thanks.

This question was already asked [this thread] but the solution doesn't work for me.

In about:config, no matter what value I give to permissions.default.shortcuts, sites are still able to intercept my keyboard shortcuts (eg Ctrl+f).

I can disable it for individual sites, using Page Info > Permissions, but I'd like this turned off across the board because I find it creepy when sites mess with my controls.

Can anyone advise me why I can't see the Evernote extension on my tool bar? or anywhere for that matter.

When I look at the add ons/ extensuons list, it is there but it no longer appears and therefore I can't clip to Evernote which is my standard go-to way of keeping things quickly.

I have tried removing and reinstalling several times but it makes no difference.

Help please?

Hi, I just updated to Firefox Developer 83.0b4 and the two-finger scroll sensitivity has been drastically reduced with no clear way to reconfigure it. I've spent the past 30 mins tweaking scroll settings in `about:config` (restarting FF after each value change) to no avail. In fact, it doesn't even appear that enabling/disabling `general.smoothScroll` or `general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel` have any noticeable effect, let alone the many other options listed. Are there any pages that describe the myriad options in `about:config` so that I can take a more measured approach to troubleshooting this issue?

What changed? And why? Chrome did this same thing at v68 without ever providing any way to configure it and FF has been my main browser since. I'm just trying to understand how such a significant input change can happen overnight without any explanation or any way to fix it.

The last three times Firefox updated, the Fox icon on the Windows 10 task bar was replaced by a generic one. To restore the Fox icon, the generic one has to be unpinned, but that deactivates it and does not remove it. Then, selecting the generic icon results in a missing item error message and the error box has a selection to remove it. Then a new shortcut needs to be created from the Firefox exe file in the Program Folder and dragged to the task bar. Any idea what is happening and why, and preferably how to prevent it?

Hello,

I recently installed the Multi-Account Containers extension but noticed that it also added some unwanted right click context menu items to assets for websites that I have put into containers. For example google.com and youtube.com are both put inside a "google" container. Now I have used the folowing code: "menu[label="Open Link in New Google Tab"] {display:none!important;} " in the userChrome.css file to remove the context menu item: "Open Link in New Google Tab" but it's only taking effect on the google.com website and not youtube.com.

Anyone know the reason why?

Thanks in advace.
