Hi,

How safe are bookmarks in general within my account?

If a file path is bookmarked does this provide file mgmt and hierarchy exposure to internet/ai hacking or use? - If feasible, would that mean every folder and file within the directory path is compromised? - Does this change if hyperlinks? Easier / harder?

Thanks for your assistance! Jared

Hey,

I'm looking for a shortcut/hotkey to focus the page.

The best I found is "Move to Next Frame", which is F6. When having the URL bar as focus, and no bookmark bar open, this will focus the page.

I have two questions here: - Is there a better way to focus the page? - If not, how can I remap F6 to a more usable hotkey?

I have found some threads with workaround like tabbing 2-3 times until the page is in focus. I'm looking for a single shortcut, having to press a key multiple times kinda defeats the purpose of a shortcut.

I have found information on how to remap hotkeys with either extensions or autoconfig, but I can't find which key I have to change. Extensions don't seem to include this key.

For autoconfig, I looked through view-source:chrome://browser/content/browser.xhtml and the Browser Toolbox to find this shortcut, but with no success. Maybe I looked at the wrong spot, maybe not all shortcuts are listed there?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am trying to add a new email address to my account so I can change the original one because it has been compromised. When i put in the new email I'm told there's "account already exists" I have no awareness of this account and can't find any reference to it in my paperwork. The new email address I want to change to is safe and secure. If in the past I did get a firefox account using the disputed email, How do I go about finding it? I'm using version 121.0.1

When use chrome I can double click with select IP address. But It's only select one number in Firefox. I think the chrome behavior is more compatible habits of people.

I know layout.word_select.stop_at_punctuation config . But It's not. In chrome, only dot will be part of number.

for example: this is a IP: 1.1.1.1, you can try it.

in chrome will get: this is a IP: "1.1.1.1", you can try it.

but in Firefox only select 1

Trying to save a web page as a PDF to Evernote; error message Can't tell if this is an Evernote problem or a Firefox problem. 1. Click the "Print" button on the web page. 2. Scroll down to "print using system dialog". 3. Click the "PDF" button and scroll down to "Save PDF to Evernote". Error message appears: "error running print workflow". I've used this function many times before and it has worked with no problems. (I tried the "Mail PDF with Postbox" option on the PDF menu and it works.)

There is "show in folder" menu for file in downloads. And it will launch my file manager at the parent folder for the selected download file.

There are so many files in my downloads folder, so i would like the specific file to be autoselected. My file manager support this if i pass the filename as parameter in the commandline.

However, seems that firefox only pass the parent folder path to my file manager in the "show in folder". However can i customize firefox so that it will pass the full file name to my file manager when i click "show in folder", and my file manager will open the parent folder with the specific file autoselected.

I use Firefox on Raspberry pi os. I have a lot of help files saved in mht format. How can I open these files in Firefox? Chrome supports such files without additional configuration, but I would not like to use this browser on Raspbian, since it consumes much more resources than Firefox. It is undesirable to use a different format.

I recently downloaded Tree Style Tab. I still see the horizontal tab bar. I would like to hide it. However, I have tried just about every answer I could find on Mozilla, Google, Reddit, and any other websites that offered solutions. Nothing has worked since the last update. This includes the "type in about:config, toggle to true, open profile folder, create userChrome.css file, copy and paste xyz code, save, and restart Firefox" route.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

So for folks who hand wrote thousands of lines of Actionscript code for Adobe Flash, it is incredibly upsetting and frustrating that a witch hunt went after Flash which we believe was part of a tactic by google to ensure its ads cannot as easily be blocked. Specifically google used all this "modern web" nonsense to become the monopolistic browser in place of internet explorer and to use that "power" explicitly to bend the future web to their will.

This is so upsetting, there are not words to describe it. And the fact that the "answer" is that folks who spent years and thousands of lines of code for Flash, now "simply need to completely re code everything from scratch in a new language" is offensive beyond recognition.

Please consider removing this "standard" response language or at least acknowledge the awful burden that was placed on folks by the decision to join the rest to remove the most popular web technology that helped build the internet, because google must serve everyone ads. It is just gross.

Honestly, we thought Firefox would defy the witch hunt and keep flash working to differentiate and look after the poor developers who suffered from this terrible, terrible action.

p.s. on the day Flash was officially killed off, chrome had more active "severe" security vulnerabilities than Flash. Thus, chrome is objectively less secure than Flash. I wonder how much google spent on paying news companies to post stuff about how "insecure" flash is and the stupid "modern web." I wonder if said "news" companies checked the claims, or just took the payment and posted their "sponsored content."
