Hi,

I tried to remote control firefox with the Selenium WebDriver and Java fio testing purposes. This ended in some instances of crashed or otherwise leftover running instances of the geckodriver.

I restarted my computer (Win 10) and started Firefox (no remote software started this time).

And now, whenever I start Firefox, it says it is remotely controlled (Robot icon / Orange bar).

How can I start Firefox in un-controlled mode again (so that ie: I can login into google again)?

(Addons = none) Thanks for help.

Hello,

I am not sure if this has been asked or not. My question is this for the bookmarks toolbar drop downs, the color is grey, which I have trouble reading sometimes. Is there anyway to change that color to make it a darker background? Are there any other options out there to change to color scheme even just a black background with white lettering?

Thanks.

scroll bar - how to change the alternative super thin scroll bar back to the default scroll bar?

Recently, I was on a web page and did something that caused the scroll bar to change from the default scroll bar to a super thin scroll bar with no up or down arrows at the top and bottom of the scroll bar. How do I make this page look like the default?

Hi there, My Firefox updated to 82.0.3 and now the menus are waaay too short. The bookmarks menu is so short that I can't even view any bookmarks in the menu.

Everything about my setup is standard in every other way. I found a possible fix by changing the about:config settings and this hasn't worked. Nor has changing the Windows registry.

Is there a way to reset this or make the menus longer so I don't need to scroll down through them?

I want to change text encoding so it defaults to Unicode. If I use the [alt] key then the View tab I can change it from Western but it reverts back after closing the page. Sometimes that does not work because the Text Encoding option in the View tab is greyed out. The About Firefox window says I am up to date with 83.0 (64bit).

Dear Volunteer, Thank you for being a volunteer with Firefox ( I guess this is the same as Mozilla?). I have changed to Fire fox from Chrome. My add on Add On Auto Text Expander from Chrome I cannot get it working in Firefox. I have seen I can open the Add On Auto text Expander, but it doesn't have my allready made text expander information. Because my list is not so long I can do the exercise again in FireFox. But I would like to learn how it works. My list I have saves as an TXT in a download Isjon.

Kind regards,

Gert-Jan van der Struys

Is there some way to disable Ctrl + Shift + Q without installing 3rd party software? Most of the key mapping extensions contain security warnings.

I find myself constantly frustrated that a "destructive" action like quit has been put so closely beside a productive option like cycle back a tab. The combination of having Ctrl + Shift + Q beside Ctrl + Shift + Tab is quite obnoxious on a QWERTY keyboard. I would like to try map this to something that makes more sense like Ctrl + Shift + E or Ctrl + Alt + Q.

I'm running Firefox 82.0.3.
