I tried adding style to userChrome.css

@-moz-document url-prefix(about:blank) {

   * {
       background: black !important;
   }

}

and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1106886 but both did not work. Dark mode extension works after loading a page but not before loading page in new tab.

Like many folks, I have somehow toggled 'Run as Administrator' and then become frustrated as Firefox asks every single time a tab or page opens if I want 'to allow Firefox to make changes to your computer'. Frustrating.

I've seen several answers to go to the 'Compatibility' tab and uncheck 'Run as Administrator' - but that did not seem to be solving the problem. I know it didn't for me!

It seems there is ANOTHER place to deactivate 'Run as Administrator'...and it supersedes the Compatibility input.

Firefox Properties => Shortcut => Advanced. Uncheck 'Run as Administrator'. The problem was solved for me, hope it works for you, too!

Applications that run inside the browser, e.g. on-line version of Excel, use the same finger swipe controls as the browser itself. This creates problems, the most annoying of which is trying to move around in an on-line Excel spreadsheet and the browser thinks you want to go back an entire web-page. If you don't perform the swipe exactly right all of a sudden not only did you lose your work and train of thought, you need to log back into the on-line document etc etc.

How can you set Firefox so that it only uses the arrow buttons to go back a page?

Well, I don't know what changed! My antivir tells me that I got a tracking cookie but they want money to delete it. So I searched and found an add on called "NoScript" who could maybe do the job for me.

But my problem is: I am (always) online with Firefox. If I want to download/install ANY add on, the site always tells me "Only in Firefox - Download and install now". As I am online with the newest version (79.0) , I absolutely don't understand this message. Okay, so I gave it a chance, hit the button and "installed" what's allready on my computer. But after that there is no change! If I want the add on, I still get the same message: "Only in Firefox - Download and install now"

What can you do for me or is there (really?) anything I have to change to be able to install AddOns again?


Nun, ich weiß nicht, was sich geändert hat! Mein Antivirus sagt mir, ich hätte einen Tracking Cookie, aber die wollen Geld für die Löschung. Also have ich gesucht und ein AddOn namens "NoScript" gefunden, das diesen Job möglicherweise erledigen kann.

Doch habe ich ein Problem: Ich bin (immer) mit Firefox online. Und wenn ich IRGENDEIN AddOn herunterladen/installieren will, erklärt mir die Seite stets "Nur mit Firefox - Laden Sie Firefox jetzt herunter". Da ich immer mit der neuesten Version (79.0) online bin, kann ich diese Nachricht nicht absolut nicht verstehen. Okay, also versuchte ich es einmal, klickte den Button und "installierte", was bereits auf meinem Computer ist. Doch danach hat sich nichts geändert! Wenn ich das AddOn will, bekomme ich nach wie vor die selbe Nachricht: "Nur mit Firefox - Laden Sie Firefox jetzt herunter"

Was könnt Ihr für mich tun oder gibt es da (tatsächlich?) etwas, das ich ändern muß, um wieder AddOns installieren zu können?

The drop-down list with known usernames and passwords extends until below the screen if there is a sufficient number of usernames stored. The funny thing is that the list is scrollable by mouse and arrow (up/down) keys, so it wouldn't be necessary to extend the list that far down. Just until the lower boundary of the current firefox windowwould have been sufficient.

The result is that I can't see (nor select) the usernames that are listed below the screen.

Firefox 75 64 bit on Fedora 32.

I hope this description was clear enough as I'm hesitant to include a screenshot showing all usernames involved on those site.

For anyone who wonders why so many logins: it's a list of email adresses currently in use in a webmail service.


Thanks.

Hello,

I'm using Containers and am able to log into different gmail accounts simultaneously.

However, I'm curious as to whether or not it would be possible to link a specific account to a specific container? (e.g., my work email automatically logs into the work container, same for personal email).

I use LastPass, but would Firefox passwords work to make this process more automatic? I set "Gmail" to automatically open in my "work" container, but it takes me to the landing page and requires me to sign-in every time.

Perhaps, I should just stop clearing my history/cookies and just hide the containers instead so the data is saved and I remain logged in. I am curious if there is another solution that I'm overlooking. (I would be down to help build one, too!)

Hi,

See attached for details. One feature I'm trying to setup with FF is search engine query URL shortcuts. Basically, it allows the user to type a letter and it auto enables that URL. In this case, we're using Reddit. Basically, it allow us to type 'R' followed by a space which then auto populates the query URL. We can then type in our requested subreddits. However, I haven't been able to get this to work with FF. The search engine function add-on in firefox only enables a general search instead of subreddit specific. Would love to hear any feedback and/or solutions. Thanks in advance.

Whenever I play any video in firefox (version 75.0, 64 bit) the video is muted for the first two seconds. Then the sound comes back, and I have to rewind to listen to see what I missed. I'm not sure when exactly this started, but I think it was like this for about a month. Maybe two. I searched for the solution in DuckDuckGo, but couldn't find anything. I did turn off fade-in and fade-out effects but that did not help.

I feel it is some kind of option to avoid sudden audio pop-ins or something. But so far I couldn't find anything relevant in about:config or the browser options.

PKCS#11 Security device stops allowing login of CAC credentials

Hello, I use Firefox 75.0 on an Ubuntu 18.04 system to access CAC enabled (smartcards) US government websites. Generally all works as desired. However, intermittently (couple times a day ---> once every few days) the browser simply, quietly refuses to allow the CAC to login, when I visit a CAC-secured site. A browser dialog is presented and asks for my PIN, but closes without error, yet the PIN is not accepted and the site (correctly) refuses access. In my troubleshooting, I found that if I look at the Security Devices tab under Privacy&Security, the PKCS#11 module shows the CAC as not logged in. If I attempt to log in at that page, I get the usual PIN dialog, but after submission, a new message box appears with the notice that "Log in failed", and I can see that module still says Log out.

It appears that some file lock or related mechanism is in effect and needs to be reset. The only solution I have been able to use is close Firefox completely (all windows), and restart. This works but not desired as I have several different sites I'm active on, and each requires separate logins.

Any suggestions for further troubleshooting would be appreciated. My forays into Google searches all end up as help to get CAC card working, which is not my problem. The card works until Firefox (or something related in the middleware) freezes and the only recourse is to restart.

Cheers, --Jim
