Hello!

I would like to know which about:config preferences I have to modify to increase the speed of loading pages in Firefox?

I know that when I disable telemetry data, Firefox is saving a lot of time sending this telemetry data, which increases the speed.

In addition, I know that the loading speed will be increased when I modify some HTTP preferences, but which one.

Please give me a full list about all I can modify to increase the speed.

Hello, I'm trying to install firefox extension on selenium headless browser but I need to configure the extension to use an API key. The documentation of the extension says that I need to download the xpi file, extract the contents and to overwrite one of the js files and to hardcode the API key inside and compress it back to xpi but when I do that I'm getting error that the file is corrupt because when I change the file I'm breaking the add-on signing. I also tried to navigate to about:addons and put the code there in the preferences tab of the extension but I can't interact with input field for the API key. Is there a workaround for this? I went trough the code of the extension and I see that this key is saved in the extension local storage is there a way I can interact with this storage outside of the extension when I set up the browser driver? Any help will be appreciated. I'm using python-selenium 3.141.0

Is it possible to change the location of Reader View? I appreciate information on how to remove it (reader.parse-on-load.enabled to false in about:config) However I like the usefulness but I do not want it to clutter up the address bar. I relocate most of my buttons, some to the overflow and would like to relocate Reader View, also.

How do you disable the Mozilla "advertisements" that appear on startup via configuration?

I designed a "kiosk" for work, that opens multiple tabs automatically and rotates through them. Sometimes the browser will automatically open a tab that goes to mozilla.org, which is frustrating, since it messes with the automatic rotation that I've designed for the kiosk. For example, the latest one opens to "The Tech Talk" article. As much as I don't mind those opening on my personal machine, how can I disable them for this machine? I can't use command line arguments, it has to be done through configuration / extension. I've already disabled all of the session restoring features, among a few other things, that way it can be as simple as possible, without involving human interaction at all. The machine doesn't even have a mouse or keyboard, as we remote into it to work on it.

It appears that 2 preferences are regularly changing by themselves on a family member's WIndows 10 laptop.

1. The "mailto" option disappears from Applications. We fix it a Firefox Refresh which restores it...until it disappears again within days or weeks.

2. The "Always ask where to save files" unchecks in Downloads. We check it, and it works fine...until it becomes unchecked again within weeks.

What do we need to look for in order to avoid this?

I have set the "Homepage and new windows" and "New tabs" option to Tabliss

However when launching Firefox, it starts in google.com and when I checked the "Homepage and new windows" option it was reset to google.com without me touching it.

I tried using custom URLs and put in "moz-extension://something-something/index.html" but it still didn't work and resets to google.com when relaunching Firefox.

I also tried putting other URLs such as YouTube it still put me into google.com when relaunched and resets it again.

It only works when I open a new tab.

How do I make Tabliss (or anything else) as my homepage when I launch Firefox?

I have two different wide-gamut displays, both are colour calibrated with profiles correctly installed and assigned in Windows 11. I have set the the about:config colour management settings correctly in Firefox so that it should render with colour management.

One monitor display renders colours correctly, but the other displays the uncorrected wide gamut of the display. If I try a browser test, like Cameratico's, it confirms that the colour management tags are not being respected on the second display, but they are on the first.

Setting the force or native sRGB tags does nothing on the second monitor.

How can I fix this?

My Firefox has been infected with MyNewTab. All attempts to remove it with various malware-removing software have failed. It does not appear in any list of installed software. I have found that I can only stop it from interferring with firefox by uninstalling firefox and reinstalling it - without syncing. So I am now trying to reinstatre Firefox to more or less how it was before.

The only real issue is that before it had an add-on - Norton Safe Web - which is not added now. I tried uninstalling Norton 360 and reinstalling it in the hope it would get the addon added. It didn't. But according to what I read it is very easy to add an add-on. I can select it from the list of add-ons, thus displaying a page all about it. According to help notes, you just click to add-on this choicre. But I can see nowhere to click to do it. I've been over that page time after time but see no way of progressing.

Help!!!

Before the new update of Firefox the drop-down menu would color itself a red color, if one of the options were already chosen. For example, if a webside had selectable options of answers in a drop down menu, and answer A already was selected, it's fillcolor/highlight would be red - ensuring the same options wouldn't be chosen multiple times.

How do I get this "feature" back?
