Release after release Firefox is adding more shortcuts, which is nice, but it also interferes with shortcuts people use to enable/disable extensions.

Is there a way to completely disable a given Firefox shorcut without having to rebuild it? Ideally Firefox should have a friendly way to change that (UI or config file), but I accept editing binaries files.

Also, why extensions with shortcuts like Shift+D are treated as invalid and get removed?

This problem occurred Oct 24, 2020 Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time (3 weeks after daylight savings time came into effect here). The operating system time is correct. I have cleared the cache several times, rebooted and shut down overnight.

A forum site is displaying the correct times. A site displaying weather information uses the correct time; I loaded it just after 3am and the first time it displayed was 6am as expected.

1. A TV guide normally highlights in red programs currently showing; at present it shows programs showing one hour previously. In Google-Chrome no programs are highlighted. I have removed the cookies and that has made no difference. 2. Facebook.com times are one hour late, both the time of posts in the newsfeed and times of notifications.

Hi forum The email provider for my preferred secondary email address uses greylisting. It works, very well. The confirming email from firefox is sent from a random amazon address, which gets greylisted as intended. There's a 5 minute limit for entering the confirmation code, but greylisting slows delivery of the email to around 15 minutes, waiting for the amazon sending server to try multiple times. Is there another way to update the secondary email address ?

Hi,

I noticed that when I open a specific site, the tabs bar becomes huge, and when I close it, the bar goes back to its normal height. For example, it happens when I go to this page: Problematic Site

I have no idea why it happens. I remember that it did happen before, but I only noticed now that it has something to do with having some specific pages loaded. So I know it has happened because of some other sites, but I don't remember which ones.

Even if I change the tab, the tab bar stays big, as long as the problematic page is loaded (even on the background).

This also happens in safe mode, so it's not because of my extensions, I imagine. Also happening on another laptop here.

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?

Thanks,

Linux Firefox not accepted by online sales websites in Zorin OS and Linux Mint

Zorin16-Linux version 99.0 Ubuntu Canonical 1.0, -found in Help/About. Firefox recognition of version below says 91.0. Also have Linux Mint 19.3 (Tricia). Computer 15YO Dell Dimension 900.

I've had no problems with Linux Firefox for many years. I do not use any other Non-Linux OSes. Linux Mint updates Firefox regularly and so do I in that OS. I'm currently in a free version of Zorin which doesn't seem to push out updates, so my Zorin Firefox may be sadly out of date.

At any rate, today in Zorin, when I went to several of the bigger online sales platforms, they refused to accept my Firefox and suggested Chrome, Opera, and Safari; Target suggested Firefox.

Went to Mozilla to try and upgrade, but it didn't offer the Linux browser automatically when it read my computer. I was only offered the Windows browser. This may be because the computer is an old Dell Windows machine that I converted to Linux or it may not. I've never had this happen before.

Yesterday in Linux Mint, in which Firefox is upgraded at least weekly, the same thing happened once with a big online retailer. They said my browser was outdated and unsafe.

What's going on? I'm wondering if Linux OSes are simply not being accepted when the big retailers are doing software upgrades, or is something going on with Firefox?

I've some search engines which was configured a lot of years ago (or maybe was imported from another browser many years ago). They are working in address bar (e.g. I can enter there "cve something", press Enter and get redirected to https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvekey.cgi?keyword=something), but not listed neither in about:preferences#search nor in my profile's search.json.mozlz4 (I've unpacked and checked it - it contents does match about:preferences#search). I've tried to grep for "cvekey.cgi" in my profile folder but get no results (I suppose these "hidden" search engines are stored in some sqlite file).

I'd like to have these hidden search engines listed in about:preferences#search. I can even manually re-add them, but how can I find complete list of all configured search engines?

When I open Firefox after starting my computer, all of my tabs from the previous session are automatically restored, and they take several minutes to load. I don't have the "Open previous windows and tabs" setting enabled. Is there a way to stop Firefox from loading these tabs each time I open the browser?

I'm using Firefox 103 on KDE neon 5.25.

The 89.0 update is great, but I'm disappointed by the new homepage (see the picture). The font is too small, and if I scale the page, the lower row doesn't fit to the screen. A good option would be to remove the useless huge Firefox logo in the middle of the page and to shift the search bar up. Then I could just scale the page. Is there a way to do it?

Changing fonts on every page is not a satisfying solution, I only want to fix the homepage.

I don't know if its an issue with the theme or Firefox itself (I think it's Firefox because it already happened on previous versions), but when I open certain number of tabs, or a tab with certain characteristics that I don't know, the whole row of tabs increases its height. And it annoys me. Thanks beforehand!

Okay, PopOS 21.04, Firefox 92.0 x64, my packages are up to date, my graphics card (Nvidia 1080) drivers are up to date (nvidia-driver-470 (proprietary)), kernal 5.13.0-7614-generic.

I run a variety of addons, but the only ones that should even be touching YouTube in any way would be Noscript, Ublock Origin, YouTube HD, HTTPS Everywhere. In the past with my current configuration none of these have given me any issues with playback.

I don't have any idea why, this is a problem I experienced a long time ago and now newly the other day for seemingly no good reason, videos on YouTube but also the web in general will not play until I open Firefox, close the browser, open it again, and then try and do whatever it was I'm trying to do. While not a fatal issue, this is one that is extremely annoying and I really don't feel like putting up with it.

Anyone have any advice or information?

Selecting text on any page, there's no visual feedback of what is selected until mouse is released.

There's no feedback that selection starts when mouse button is pressed down, no visual feedback while moving the mouse with the button pressed and only upon releasing the button do I get to see the selection.

Selecting works fine in other browsers (chromium) and was working the other day before I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 22.04 (was using 20.04 before) wiping my previous Firefox. So this issue is on an almost vanilla Firefox version 104.0.2.

(Incidentally I can highlight that version number and only that version number in the about-box and I get continuous dynamic feedback of what part of the version number I highlight, but nowhere else in Firefox.)

Hallo,

My previous thread was archived, but further regression has occurred so I'll bring it up here again as feature requests are down. I'm still using 56 one reason being that there are separate control options for the start page and the home page. I like to start with a blank page, but have the home button available for my #1 destination. The current version of firefox combines start and home pages, thus taking away my options to separate these elements. For a while it wasn't in the GUI, but you could fix it in the about:config (which was my previous "solution"), but with the latest updates this has been removed as well.

How do I get separate start and home pages? If I could assign a value to the home icon that didn't affect the start page, that would work too.

         Tak!
