Hi there,

I am unable to connect to my printer over my local wifi using the IP address when using Firefox (126.0) on MacOS. On Linux (Firefox 125.0.3, for Ubuntu), the procedure is simply to type the IP address into the search bar, and press enter, and it works. On MacOs, no way to get to that website, I only get a Google search (I also tried adding http:// or https://, or tried creating a Bookmark and modifying the address there, it simply refuses to update if I just have http://xxx.xxx.x.xxx as the address)...

Any chance there might be a way for me to connect to that IP-only website?

Thanks in advance!

Hello Forum,

I keep my shift schedule as a bookmark on my toolbar for quick reference. It's rather small 554x670.

Is there a url modifier to make it load at the %200 i usually look at it at?

http://page.com/image.jpeg:zoomx or something like that?

Thanks Community.

A reason I can't stop FF from trying to populate my home page shortcuts?

I can control the number of rows. I can control whether to accept sponsored shortcuts. (I have chosen *not to.) I can control whether I want 1 or more rows to reflect recent activity. (I have chosen *not to.)

Yet until I pin my own preference to *every shortcut, it seems I cannot stop FF from putting "suggestions" in the empty slots, based on nothing but a single web visit.

This is annoying.

Moreover, if I visit several different pages connected to the same site, FF will put them all into shortcuts, with the same icons.

This is possibly even more annoying.

I am coming from Brave. They don't do things like that, although there is obviously a reason I'm giving FF a look.

But I would recommend, heartily, a home page shortcut box in settings that one could click (and actually *mean* something), like: "Don't ever suggest or fill in any shortcuts for any reason. I will handle it, and I don't like correcting your mistaken ideas."

On my Macbook air (m1 2020 14.3.1 (23D60)) /etc/hosts is ignored by Firefox 123

i've tried multiple offered (old) solutions from stack but non work.

FAILED ATTEMPTS:

  • DNS over https -> off
  • network.trr.excluded-domains ... tried to add the domains in the dns over https exeptions ... didn't work either
  • added the domains to network.trr.excluded-domains
  • cleared cache
  • restart ff
  • migrating all my /etc/hosts config from multiple domains on a single line to separate lines did. Hope this helps someone.
  • network.ttr.mode = 5
  • sudo dscacheutil -flushcache; sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder in the terminal


Background: I run my own server and I cannot access them over the internet if I am on the same network (rounter dissallows this) This is annoying as I cannot develop via my laptop.

/etc/hosts is changed and in the terminal all (ssh etc...) works fine.

What is the proper way of doing this these days?

I'm inspecting an element and when I use the 3 dot menu and search, it shows me results in sources tab. I try to edit the result, but it won't let me edit the sources tab. It only lets me edit in the elements tab. How do I search the elements tab? It keeps sending me to sources. It would be great if sources was made read/write as well. Many thanks.

Hiya,

So I have an option in the about:config preferences that I have to toggle every so often. (if you're really interested, I have items that I need to print a few hundred times in the same manner, so I disable print.always_print_silent so I don't have to deal with the pop up and can print directly by pressing ctrl+p. small time gain, but every little bit helps.

However, I need to change every so often if I want to print something else and it can be quite tedious to navigate through all the menu's. First world problem really. But I was wondering, is there a way to hotkey toggling preferences? or adding a toggle? it's probably relatively easy to create a extension with a button and a simple script, but was wondering if anyone knew of a direct way. thanks!

There are some pop-ups I cannot stop.

Naturally, I have clicked “stop pop-ups” in the Privacy and Security section of Firefox Settings. That has worked but not quite. I keep getting some “via l-itineraire.com”. That’s a website I used during a recent holiday in France.

So I installed Block Site.

That has an option called “Block a new host name”. I entered “l-itineraire.com.” and clicked Add. This has had no effect. The pop-ups still arrive from them.

I know there’s an option to open the website and get into the Firefox toolbar, but that’s defeated me. Yes I managed to get to click Menu, but not beyond. Anyway, that should not be necessary – after all I’ve clicked no pop-ups.

Firefox clear history can remove download info. But right-click on icon shows win10 keeps a list; items there can only be deleted one-by-one.

Maybe this is more a win10 issue. How can it be stopped from remembering all downloads, or how can that list be cleared all at once? Thank you.

Hi there,

I'm trying to see if there is a way to modify how the Firefox "Location" prompts ("Do you want to give this site access to your location? Allow/Block") are displayed on the screen. Although, microphone and camera access prompts are also relevant to me.

My use case is mobile Linux and similar to some of the problems solved by https://gitlab.com/postmarketOS/mobile-config-firefox

If anybody is knowledgeable on the subject and could point me to relevant source or terminology used by Firefox to help narrow my search, I'd appreciate it. Is it possible to modify these prompts with any of the built-in CSS modifiers like userChrome.css or anything else?

Thanks!

Is there any way to prevent a website from adding history entries in the back button dropdown menu just because I clicked a button, which opened a confirmation modal, and closed the modal, remaining on the same initial page?

For instance there is a site I use, which has a list of my posts, with buttons to delete the posts. I click the delete button, this opens an "Are you sure?" modal window, I click delete, the modal closes, I am on the same original list page with the same URL, but now I have another pseudo-page in my back button history that I have to go through.

If I do this with three more posts, I will have an additional three back button history dropdown entries to navigate back through.

When I exceed the number of entries shown in the dropdown, I have to keep clicking through the quasi-paginated list of duplicated back button history entries for the same exact page, to get back to the page I was on before ever going to the list page.

Up until now, when I've downloaded a file, the download button displays a dropdown of the downloaded file list, and other features. After updating to v104.0.2, the download button ONLY highlights to signal that files have been downloaded to my download directory, but clicking this button does nothing. Instead, the only way I can access my downloads is by Ctrl-J or clicking on the 3-horiz-lines and select Downloads, which opens a separate dialog box. Why this change? How can I restore the old/standard feature which worked quickly and intuitively?
