I've been making my own Firefox theme using the Firefox Color extension. I uploaded an image but I can't figure out how to show the image on the new tab screen. Setting the new tab page color to transparent only makes everything white. I know the image is uploaded correctly because I can see some of it in the toolbar and tab list. Is it possible to show the image on the new tab page?

Whenever I use Firefox 109.0 (on Ubuntu 22.04) to transfer money between savings and checking in my online banking account, I get a window pop-up that says "No Apps Available". This is something going on my bank's servers and shouldn't require Firefox or any local helper apps on my end to do anything. I will post the window that pops up. Has anyone else encountered this? And is there a way to disable these pop-up?

After having to refresh Firefox, all extensions are missing from my toolbar. They're still installed and function but some require tweaking options on a per page basis and it's a hassle to have to work through multiple menus when they should just be a click away. From other answers, it seems like the extenstions should be in the customise toolbar page but only the standard options are there. I've tried disabling and enabling them, as well as removing and adding them again already with no results.

How do I either get them back to the toolbar or the customise page so I can add them myself?

Leading Zero Suppressed in Firefox PDF v109.0.1 64 bit on Windows 10

Was filling out pdf version of 2022 IRS tax forms and discovered leading zero is suppressed in Firefox PDF v109.0.1 64 bit on Windows 10. "Before" image is after typing leading zero but before 'enter' or moving to next field. "After" image is after typing leading zero and after 'enter' or moving to next field. The leading zero disappears.

Saving pdf does not change leading zero suppression.

To see if the pdf document was configured by the IRS to suppress leading zero, I opened the same form in Microsoft Edge v109.0.1518.78 64 bit on Windows 10. It retained the leading zero after typing then 'enter' or moving to next field.

While using MS Edge to complete pdf forms fixes my immediate issues, there still seems to be a defect in Firefox pdf.

Current situation: I have 2 monitors. I have the option of auto hide taskbar in desktop mode turned on. On the primary monitor, when I maximise firefox window( not full screen, the button between close and minimise, looking like a square), and hover my cursor towards the bottom, my taskbar doesn't unhide. However when I unminimise( clicking the middle button on the top right again), the taskbar unhides correctly. Also to note, my secondary monitor works completely fine ie, when firefox is maximised I can unhide taskbar on hovering near the bottom.

Nice to meet you all. I have poor English skills, so I use a translator to post. Thank you for your understanding.

I would like to report on a problem I found today.

First of all, the symptom is "Unable to log in at Evernote.com".

To be precise, if you try to log in using a normal ID/PW on Evernote.com, it will respond as if the PW is incorrect.

However, since I checked the ID/PW several times, I determined that there was no problem, and as a result of trying the following combinations, I determined that it was a problem with Firefox for Desktop.

(1) Desktop , Using Firefox -> Can't Login. (2) Desktop , Using Microsoft Edge -> OK (3) Desktop , Using Google Chrome -> OK (4) Android , Using Firefox for Mobile -> OK (4-1) Android , Using Firefox For Mobile (Desktop Mode) -> OK (5) Android , Using Google Chrome -> OK

In the same experiment as above, each version is as follows.

Desktop Firefox: 109.0.1 Mobile Firefox: 109.1.1

My guess is that Firefox's anti-tracking privacy part has a problem with the evernote.com site at some point.

Turning off Privacy Tracking Prevention does not solve the problem. If there are other users reading this article and have an Evernote.com account, please try logging in.

For now, I'm using a different browser, but I hope it works out normally.

Have a nice day everyone.

Hello! I haven't been able to find a solution.

So I'm trying to make a theme with an APNG of an ECG reading, but the bottom is totally cut off. I've tried aligning it differently, customizing the toolbar, and getting a smaller APNG with no dice. Is there a way I can extend it into the rest of the toolbar like so many other themes seem to do just fine?

I am trying to block out the new little "stick marks" that post while I try to log on to a site that that I need to "google" and log on to. I tried to sign out of all the "outside sites" that want to log on, but there are sites that I need to log on to and have done this in the past. I usually go to these sites because they are important to my transacting business, accessing my bank, places I pay my bills, etc. If I want to get to these and order or pay a bill, I have to unblock each one of them??? How do I do that? If a credit company wants to contact me, they cannot do this even if we have contacted each other previously? Really?

How do I undo this already-marked system and get out of it? As you can guess, I am old and not up with the times. Please simplify your answers so a not-technical person can understand it.

I recently had to factory reset my computer and had to download and sync my firefox account all over again. It's been a week and firefox is still syncing, none of my bookmarks, add-ons, history or top sites on the new tab are showing up. Thankfully, it appears that most of my passwords have been synced.

I've read some other threads for tips and can confirm that I don't have this account logged in to other devices and I don't have a vpn or proxy running. I am able to obtain the sync logs but I have no idea how to read it.

How can I make the bookmarks, add-ons, history and top sites sync faster?

All of a sudden when I press F6, it starts a Google search (see image) instead of just focusing the address bar. This is rather annoying because I use F6 all the time to go to a different page (e.g. type "mail" and then follow the autocomplete to mail.google.com) and that doesn't work if it wants search google for mail instead.

How do I revert this to its normal behaviour?

My extensions take up a lot of space in my toolbar and I'd love to hide all of them. However - every 'solution' to the problem tells me to right click the extension straight from the toolbar and click 'Hide from Toolbar'.

I do remember this option existing, however I couldn't find it since last update and I'm assuming it was removed. Is there any way to use it again?

^ (Small note, It would also be lovely if I could add them to the Extensions add-on in the toolbar, as that would really be a better use for it other than overflow)

When clicking on a link to an .mp4 file, Firefox navigates to a builtin video player, streaming the remote video file. When Firefox is unable to stream or display a file (as is the case with .mkv or .txt for example), it is downloaded instead.

I simply want .mp4 files to be downloaded when I navigate to them. I tried setting `media.mp4.enabled` to `false`, and that worked, but it also disabled most embedded media players.
