And neither is the Temporary Containers Addon. I just did fresh brand new initial Firefox install on both the most updated version of Windows 10 and the most recent version of Ubuntu 20.04. All addons appear in the toolbar except these 2. I've tried installing these 2 first. I've tried installing them last, then disabling all the other addons, uninstalling them and reinstalling them. Nothing will make them appear in the toolbar, yet they appear as enabled when they display under the addons > extensions. Also, hitting the extension shortcuts will not bring up the addon interaction screen for any of the addons, e.g. Ctrl U or Ctrl <period> or whatever the relevant shortcut command is. This appears to only be an issue with FRESH Firefox install, because on my other computer running Windows 10 I've had the Multiaccount Containers Addon in the toolbar for 6 months without issue through many older versions of Firefox; and after I updated (rather than fresh install) to this latest version the Multiaccount Containers Addon remains in the toolbar without issue.

Can anyone suggest how I can get theMultiaccount Containers Addon and Temporary Containers Addon to appear in the toolbar? And why are none of the extension shortcuts working - could I be executing them on the wrong screen? I've been trying them on the Addons > Extensions screen.

The title says it all: I am wondering whether it is possible to interact with the Firefox console upon starting Firefox in headless mode.

More generally, I'd settle for some way of accessing it programmatically, in scripts.

What I've tried:

So far I've been playing with the Javascript bindings to Selenium without success:

Starting Firefox with the -devtools option from Selenium does opn the dev tools, but I then cannot send key combinations that will switch me to the actual console, or in fact interact from my `.js` script with the open devtools window in any way.

I provide online assistance for a specific group of clients. I am finding myself repeatedly writing almost the exact same paragraphs. Which Add-on would allow me to simply populate a field on a page with the exact text -- I'm hoping to set up 20 or 30 responses that I can just select instead of having to retype everything. Thanks for any guidance.

I would rather not re-write the old IDE's I've been using for years but rather replace them with html/xml web style pages. Konqueror will locally execute binaries with a launcher script. Firefox, Chrome, re-Konq, WebPositive, and IE Explorer will not. If Firefox or SeaMonkey would execute my binaries I could easily replace the old IDE's and save myself and my clients a lot of time and money.

Hi,

I've got hundreds of bookmarks that I finally want to classify. So I opened the Bookmarks->Show All to get to the Library. Now from there I thought that I could just move/drag the bookmarks ... I remember it was possible to do it on previous versions of firefox ? But surprise it doesn't seem to work. I can right click and cut/paste it. Or I can go in Organize and Move... it. For a few bookmarks it would do it, but for HUNDREDS of bookmark that's just not possible. It takes some much clicks and time that I'll probably still be on it next year...

I am a web site designer. I have on my computer Linux's Krusader file manager, which allows me to copy files to my web host's server. Normally, when I do that and have renewed the page on Firefox, the page showing in Firefox accurately reflects the change that I have copied to my web host's server. Lately, regardless of clearing the cache, exiting Firefox and coming back in, the page showing on Firefox continues to be the old page without the change.

Firefox 10.0.2 on Ubuntu 10.04 - when I add a bookmark the secondary menu (which allows you to choose the location) does not appear. The bookmark is created in the main bookmark "folder". I can manage the bookmark after it is created but this is not very efficient.

Any ideas how to correct this? Thanks in advance.

I am running with ubuntu 18.04.3 and firefox 75

This is strange and i can't figure it out. I will be browsing along and, suddenly, I am in a new window. When this happens the current tab becomes a new window. As an interesting aside I also notice that the firefox icon does not show me that I now have two windows open. My suspicion is that I am pressing a wrong key but I can't seem to be able to do it on purpose so I have no idea what I am doing to cause this, or how to stop it.

thank you...........

The reason is that in the 32 bit one all my "user & PW" data .... abruptly vanished. So I wished to use the existing data to restore the configuration.

Both PC are running LINUX: - 64bit has Linux Mint - 32 bit has Kubuntu
