Is there a keyboard shortcut to access the menu button and add-on extensions button (top right of toolbar, not the menu bar)?

locking as a duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1250243

I'd like to know if there is a shortcut to toggle the "3-bar" menu button and extension button section of the toolbar. F6 only selects the address bar. Then hitting Tab only moves over to the search bar, and hitting Tab again just toggles through page elements. For instance, in Google Chrome what I am trying to accomplish would be done by hitting Alt and then left-arrow until I've selected the extension button I am looking for (or by hitting F6 and "tabbing" to the right to get to the toolbar buttons). In Mozilla, the only way I find I can access the extension functions or the "3-bar" button is with the mouse.

how to fix losing all your typed work in firefox session when you hit the 'backspace' key

the problem with firefox going to a previous page and deleting all your typed work when you hit the backspace key is a known issue, for over eight years, and firefox has no intention of fixing the problem despite countless user complaints. the resulting loss in thousands of man-hours of work is not acceptable under any circumstances

but what is unacceptable aside from all the lost man-hours is that instead of mozilla immediately fixing the problem, it has allowed it to linger. i can no longer afford to use mozilla software. it's easier for me to delete all mozilla software from each and every one of my computers than have to keep track of the browser.backspace_action key for all of them. i'm going through all my drives and deleting everything to do with firefox

here's how to do it: download vivaldi browser and import all of your firefox settings: https://drive.google.com/file/d/11v63-MFUkOGVRm4Oia5EuW_ZTqVZosXl/view?usp=sharing

use this walkthrough to import all of your firefox tabs into vivaldi: https://browserengine.net/how-to-import-tabs-from-chrome-to-firefox-and-vice-versa/

search through all your drives for "mozilla" and "firefox", and delete everything, esp. having to do with "installer" or "setup" https://drive.google.com/file/d/1S5iAcWjC_wh0vNiWJujR-xk7lfhgihPJ/view?usp=sharing

there. you will never destroy your work by using the backspace key, and you can edit your typed work without fear of mozilla hijacking your browser and destroying all of your work

you can go the extra mile by putting every correspondence from mozilla that concerns donations into the spam folder

Hallo und guten Tag,

ich möchte gern mehrere websites als Startseite haben, wenn ich den Firefox browser öffne. Wie das geht wird auf der Firefox Seite sehr gut erklärt.

Zwar ist es mir gelungen, google als Startseite durch drag & drop auf das Haus Symbol zu ziehen. Jetzt würde ich habe gern weitere Registerkarten als Startseite festlegen.

Wenn ich (wie in der Erklärung) jedoch auf die Menüschaltfläche mit den drei Strichen klicke und danach auf "Startseite" klicke, ist das Fenster "Startseite und neue Fenster" leider inaktiv, so dass ich nicht weiterkomme. Wie kann ich dieses inaktive Fenster aktivieren. Wo liegt der Fehler.

Ich hoffe sehr, dass mir bei diesem Problem jemand helfen kann und würde mich über eine Antwort sehr freuen. Vielen Dank im Voraus!

Beste Grüße, Sabine

I had to reset my computer to factory settings. Prior to this when I clicked on the email address box on the Google sign in page, I was offered my google email address and my hotmail address to select. Then I just entered my password. After the reset, it no longer does this forcing me to type the email address each time. How do I get back to having the email addresses offered when clicking on the email address box? Thanks.

The current 'on-the-fly' status bar has many issues, especially with infinite (or long timeout) loading/hanging of resources on a website with fixed layout. Especially when the given website is more of a webapplication, where you can't scroll, and sometimes the footer provides you with essential dynamic information.

The common feature request is to add the possibility of a fixed status bar, for people that want that (you can leave the default as is).

And my own idea: make the URL in status bar hover on top of the address bar (or part of it, for example aligned to the right so it's never on top of the domain of the current website). This may sound controversial at first, but I think it's definitely the better way in terms of UI design, and makes a lot of sense especially when you are hovering links in a website.

But in any case, everything is better than a browser that forcedly displays something that hides part of the website and cannot be manually removed.

Even the ability to just turn it off for loading resources, and only display it during hovering of links would be a huge improvement! Who cares about the resources that are being loaded anyway, you could always press F12 for that. Or make a popup menu while you hover the address bar, that will show all the resources currently being loaded.

This is seriously a huge design flaw. I hope my message came across.

The about:config trick doesn't work on Drudge. Chrome has an add-on that blocks autorefresh, but it doesn't work on Drudge, either. Apparently Drudge is hell-bent on autorefreshing his page every thirty seconds whether you like it or not. Has anyone figured out how to make Drudge stop autorefreshing? I used to use NoScript, but since Quantum, NoScript has been transformed into a monstrosity I can't make head or tail of.

I'm use to have many Firefox windows open at the same time (usually 5-8), each one with dozen of tabs and it's difficult remember in which window a certain tab is open. So I think it would be useful hava a command to list all windows and tab open and be able to save this list in another program (text, spreadsheet, presentation or whatever. I searched in Firefox help, but find nothing: is my fault (so, please, suggest ho to do it) or a lack of feature? Many thanks

The one and only website that I want as my new tab is a bit laggy and takes a while to load, probably because of CloudFlare.

And I'd like to have a huge page to see all of my bookmarks in, to make it easier to organize my bookmarks. Instead of using the bookmarks sidebar or the Library window.

So I thought why not combine the two things that I want? Make my new tab open up to the Chrome bookmarks page, and then if I want that laggy website it can be one of the top bookmarks listed. Or if I want to organize and see my other bookmarks instead, I can just ignore that top bookmark and focus on the other bookmarks.

Well my New Tab URL won't let me and it is a Firefox restriction so he couldn't add the feature even if he wanted to.

But surely there is a trick or workaround that might not involve extensions?

If so, please let me know.

I want chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml as my new tab page.

The extension was changing it to http://chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml which broke it.

Hi everyone :)

I didn't find anything about it: I'm looking for a shortcut to open links in the private window without opening the context menu (right click)

I know that.....:

  • CTRL + Click open in a new Tab (Or middle click)
  • CTRL + SHIFT + Click open in a new Tab and focus on this new tab (or SHIFT + middle click)
  • SHIFT + Click open the link in a new Window

But actually I didn't find any combination to open it in a new private window. Even the context menu "Open Link in a new private window" isn't what I'm looking for as I don't want the new window to be on top.

Is there a way to do it, maybe an extension ?

Thanks for reading, Alex.
