Hello,

I use Endeavour OS (Arch Linux-based distribution) and i3 window manager.

I added more than 20 customised devices to the list of device displays at the Responsive Mode. The list is too long.

Check my screenshot.

When you open the list, there is not scrollbar, you can not scroll up (you can see you stop at "iPad" and can not go up).

I have been searching for 3 hours and tried the solutions in the topics I found here, no luck.

Before, I had bookmarked two websites: stackoverflow.com and stackoverflow.blog. I deleted the bookmark for the latter, but now every time I type stack in the search bar, to get Firefox to suggest me stackoverflow.com, instead the only suggestion returned is the blog.

What I tried: - typing stack in the search bar in a Private Window, didn't work.

I have great help to increase the sizes of text and images on web pages with the zoom features and "legibility" add-on.

However, I can't seem to find anything that actually increases the sizesof the font and icon image on the menu bar, bookmark toolbar, task bar etc. 

Is there an easy way to accomplish this since my 74 year old eyes are squinting at finding the right icon and reading the text in those tool bars.

Hello all, I am confused about the state of Firefox as a browser lately, and by lately, I mean for the last year or so....

You see, I have been using Firefox for years, and always Loved it, but lately it seems to me that I am constantly being harassed about pointless security concerns from the browser now, to the point where very simple tasks will not complete. As a result, I find myself having to keep the icon for Chrome browser on my desktop to handle some of the numerous things that will not work in Firefox.

  • For one thing, almost half of the sites that I try to sign up for new accounts on get a stupid message saying my password is not secure, or it simply does not work at all.
  • Then, another large amount of websites I try to visit come back with warning pages, telling me it is unsafe to proceed, and forcing me to bypass the warning to go there.
  • Before, although not so much now, it would not allow me to open any chat sessions online, and I had ot go to a different browser in order to chat with support for websites.

My concern is that, whoever is handling Firefox as of late, has lost the ability to maintain a useful, simplistic browser model anymore, and that with every new update, less and less functions actually work. This is not truly a question, so much as a somewhat angered rant about a browser that I USED to love, and am now seriously considering switching away from. Has anyone else noticed that Firefox browser has become more and more frustrating to use, or is it just me??

I have just set up a Firefox account. I have used the Simple Tab Groups add-on to manage my tabs. I did this on my laptop, but when I sign in to my Firefox account on my desktop, the tabs have not be transferred over. In fact none of the tabs are the same. I have clicked Sync multiple times. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, I have changed my account password. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Simple Tab Groups add-on. If I am going to use a Firefox account I want all of my tabs, and groups of tabs, to be the same on my laptop and desktop.

When I open a new window (via command-N), keystrokes that I enter before the new window loads get sent to the old window, whereas I would prefer them to get buffered to the new window. E.g., I have my home screen set to the default Firefox screen (where the cursor is set to the search bar), so when I open a new window and immediately type say "asdf", I expect this to show up in the search bar in the new window.

Is there a way to change the behavior here? I've tried turning off all my extensions, and it's still the same, so seems like that's not the relevant to the problem.

(I recently switched to Firefox from Safari/Chrome, where this was the default behavior)

When expecting a package from UPS I set up a tab with the tracking number and refresh it to get the current status of the package. This worked for years but the last few years whenever said tab is accessed it has either "/TRACKDETAILS" or "/" added to the tracking number in its search textbox, and of course UPS generates an error for it. If I remove the offending characters and search then everything is fine, but if I leave the tab and come back the offending characters are back. It is always one of the two I mentioned, and it will always have one of them. I have no idea if this is a Firefox problem or not but UPS told me to go-away-the-problem-isn't-on-our-end. I'm at my wit's end to solve this, have you any insight to give? Thank you.

P.S. I should add that I have tried disabling all my various add-ons to no avail, it makes no difference.

Running FireFox 77.0.1 and trying to drive an HP Envy 6255 (wireless) printer. All other programs (including Thunderbird, Adobe Reader, Microsoft Edge etc) print without problems. I have worked through each and every step of the Printing Troubleshooting steps, including refreshing and reinstallation of FireFox, without success. The only add on I am using is DuckDuckGo, and I even tried printing without it.

Everything was running fine until a few days ago. (Windows 10 updates have not been added, and even if they had slipped through, everything else is still working as of this morning.) It still works off my iOS devices. The networks have not changed. Any ideas?

When you save a name, address, and phone number for Firefox to use to autofill online forms, Firefox automatically adds the +1 country code if the address is in the United States.

I guess someone thought that would be helpful because so many users in the United States don't know the country code because we never use it. The problem is that not only don't we use it, but almost no US online forms are designed to accept it. Virtually every form on any website in the US is set up to expect a TEN DIGIT phone number without any area code. This is especially true of forms for businesses that only do business with customers in the US.

I have rarely found any online form in the US that needs the country code -- exactly the contrary I have found numerous online forms that fail when Firefox attempts to enter a phone number with the +1 area code. Some forms reject the + as a non-numeric character. Other forms reject the entire phone number entry for having too many characters. Probably most common are forms that take the numbers as being a standard 10-digit phone number which the form truncates at just 10 digits (cutting off the last one or two digits that Firefox sends).

The fact that most online forms in the US cannot process a phone number with any country code seems strange considering how many of our web coders are international workers on H2-B visas - but it is absolutely true that most of our online forms cannot process a phone number of more than 10 digits.

I always enter the phone number as just the 10 digits, but Firefox insists on adding the +1, even when I edit the saved address to remove the +1 Firefox will soon add it again.

Is it possible to limit scripts, say of facebook, to run only inside the facebook container using no script? While it seems facebook itself will only open up inside the facebook container, it seems that unless the facebook script is blocked by no script it runs outside the container when I'm on other sites such as my banking site. While I expect facebook scripts to be running when I'm using facebook, I'm not that excited for them to be running outside the container and turning scripts manually on and off for each container is a bit of a pain. So what I'm looking for is a way to limit which scripts run in each container and have that the default when I open the container.
