Some eighteen months ago I asked you how to make the scroll bars wider in Outlook. But at the time I was using Windows 7 and I cannot find your answer in my saved emails.

Now I am using Windows 10 and I would again like to widen the scroll bars in Outlook.com my email account.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Please remember I am old and not at all computer savvy and would be so grateful for a slow and easy to follow method.

Thank you so much in advance for your help.

Anthony

How to hide or disable vertical and horizontal scrollbars? in v79 of Firefox for Linux. I have created a 'user.Chrome.css' file and placed it in the Firefox active profile. I can see that it runs/opens that css file, but nothing happens or changes.

We are trying to use the Firefox browser to open and display GUI screens for a project. No matter what css 'example' code I use, a thin scroll bar on the right side of the screen is always there. There is nothing to scroll to, as all the widgets (buttons, etc.) are continued one screen that fills the browser screen.

Maybe things has changed for v79, as the only examples I can find are for version 6**.

I am new to this, so as much 'basic' information would be helpful Thanks

How can I disable 'backspace' key from navigating back a page?

I found an old article that said to set a value who knows where to 2, but that wasn't helpful. And I found a page that listed all the shortcuts, but didn't say how to change them. That wasn't helpful either, doggone it!

I agree with a previous poster that this "feature" is inappropriate -- using a text edit key while editing text should not cause navigation to occur.

Thanks!

Is there any way to make Mozilla Firefox automatically rename downloaded files of the same name like Chrome does?

When I right-click on an image in Chrome, and choose `save as`, it doesn't ask me for a new file name if a file with the same name exists in the folder. It just adds a `(1)` suffix to the filename automatically. However, in Firefox, it asks me to type a new file name if the directory contains a file with the same name. Is there any under-the-hood switch to fix this behavior? ( BTW my download option is set to "Save files to Downloads without asking me every time" ) Sounds like a simple problem but imagine you need to download 100 images from a web page and every file on the server is named `image.jpg`.

When I zoom in (with ctrl+= for example) images are rendered with heavy interpolation / blurring. Usually I want to see individual pixels as discrete, blur-less squares.

Is there any way to change it so Firefox renders without interpolation? I am using Firefox 71.0 Operating system: Linux Mint 19.3

TL;DR For a quick & dirty workaround to this issue a simple flag change in your about:config will save you some time and trouble. Without further ado:

  1. Navigate to about:config
  2. Search for browser.tabs.closeTabByDblclick
  3. Set value to True

@whalemonster had the same problem I was running into. Coming off of Brave/Chrome, I am use to being able to use the CTL-W (Win) CMD-W (Mac) shortcut to quickly close out pinned tabs. Like others out there, I find it cumbersome and time consuming to have to right click > find the menu I item I want > and then close the pinned tab. Yes, I do appreciate the ability to not accidentally close a pinned tab, but it would be great if we can use the Option key modifier on Mac as that added precaution/step to prevent accidental pinned tab closures. This way Firefox users can have the best of both worlds.

I was able to remove it buy downloading Malwarebytes and running it in safe mode Windows 10 desktop. Then after reboot to normal mode click reset Firefox 80. 09-06-20. had to re-add the title bar and Chrome folder in the profile to get my multi bookmarks toolbar back and tabs below search bar then since I was signed up with a Mozilla account for Firefox all the apps just loaded along with all the settings and bookmarks. I gotta hand it to ya Mozilla this is one sweet program and they have thought of everything. So don't get discouraged if you get hit sometimes because my Vipre Internet Security did not catch this since I had the check all open and closing folders Edge Protection off. Still the scan should have picked it up. It cost me $40 for a year of Malwarebytes but that's a cheep fix as far as I am concerned.

I can't figure out how to get a word count of a web page. The problem: an academic website offers a tremendously long work in five parts--so lengthy I can't copy&paste into Word without getting error messages. The only extension FF has for getting a word (or character) count is Count Me Up, but you have to paste text into a little box. Shouldn't word count be a FF tool? BTW Chrome too doesn't seem to know about any word count extensions.

A standard behavior of any application on Ubuntu is when you mouse middle button click on any open window top title bar that application window gets lowered to underneath all other open windows ... This has worked fine on ff nightly until a few days ago ... this is even when ff setting -> Customize -> Toolbars -> Menu Bar it enabled

ff nightly 82.0a1 (2020-09-08) (64-bit)

on Ubuntu 20.04

As a long time ff user on nightly while on various releases of Ubuntu over the years this typically works OK however about once a year it stops working then somehow starts working OK

On same Ubuntu 20.04 machine all other applications are OK with this behavior
