After an extension update, uBlock asked for some permissions. I clicked on the window to see more information about the permissions, and now the request is gone and I have no option to say yes or no.

I have not tried to restart the browser as I am currently using it, nor should I need to as seeking more information about permissions shouldn't dismiss the request.

Case study. On a website I upload a file. So the website generates a file that I download. Should the file I download end up in the directory from where I got the file I uploaded? I wish it were so. Alternatively, you can set up a download location for a specific website.

Unfortunately I have to often log onto a website that has a popup password system. The main problem is that as long as the popup is present, Firefox is completely locked up. Basically, until I either cancel the login or I actually login, I can't click any tab, access any extension, or do anything else.

Is there a way to modify this behaviour and keep Firefox usable in these cases?

Windows too big after enlarging font on tabs and toolbar size

v. 73.0.1 64-bit Windows 10 1903

I enlarged the size of my fonts on the toolbars, and also made the toolbars taller. Now on certain pages, the screen resolution is too large, and it seems to be skewed to the right, running off the edge of the screen, causing me to have to scroll. I can't remember how I enlarged the toolbars or font, but I remember it had something to do with the View settings. I can't find it now. I tried changing the font size in options, but it didn't fix the problem of the oversized pages.

On streaming videos, I have to scroll over and go full-screen even if I don't want to. On other sites, I can make it smaller with Ctrl-, which is annoying.

I don't want to reset and lose all my add-ons and such. Can you please help me fix this? TIA

Frequently I'd like to share webpages via the Apple Messages app on my Macbook, but I can't seem to find that icon. There's an icon to email a link or I can click through the page actions menu to Share and then Messages. I'd prefer to have a direct link in the toolbar though.

How do I change the Firefox shortcuts?

I have a KVM switch that is improperly made. It will not recognize the Back/Forward buttons on my mouse. The current shortcuts require me to move my hand off the mouse as they use a modifier (ALT+Left Arrow).

I want to create a single key Back/Forward shortcuts so I can keep my hand on the mouse. Specifically, I want to reassign (or add, not fussy) the F2 and F3 keys to Back and Forward.

How do I do that? (And to quote Gene Krantz, failure is NOT an option.)

When using "chrome_url_overrides" in the manifest.json of my addon to change the new tab page, is it possible to focus on an element in the page?

My manifest is this: { "manifest_version": 2, "name": "Simple Startpage", "version": "1.0", "description": "My very simple start page", "ch… (read more)

My manifest is this:

   {
   	"manifest_version": 2,
   	"name": "Simple Startpage",
   	"version": "1.0",
   
   	"description": "My very simple start page",
   
   	"chrome_url_overrides": {
   		"newtab": "index.html"
   	}
   }

`index.html` is a normal HTML page that references an `index.js` which contains code something like this:

   window.onload = () => {document.getElementById("search").focus()}

However, when I open a new page, it focuses the address bar at the top instead of my element. Is there an approach I could take to this that would let me focus that element? Directly opening the file verifies that the focus() works.

I created a custom theme using a picture from online through Firefox Colors. Whenever I log out of Firefox browser, I have to go to Firefox colors in order for me to get that custom theme to show by going under my saved themes. When I try to export, it just makes me open it in a picture program on my computer. I can't keep this sucker enabled as it seems Firefox doesn't want to save and apply it. I have gone all over the settings about light, dark, and other themes. Nothing should be causing this. Uninstalling the Firefox Colors, reinstalling it, and redoing the ENTIRE theme all over again has only resulted in it not being saved and me going through Firefox Colors every time just to get the theme I want.

I've tried a couple of plugins, but none work correctly. I use ssh to set up a local SOCKS proxy for support tasks, but also use Firefox for other things. I'm frequently going into Hamburger -> Settings -> scroll scroll scroll scroll Network Settings -> Proxy: None or SOCKS

It would be super nice to bring up the proxy settings, or toggle on or off, from a single button.
