Is there a hotkey which would allow me to grab a Firefox window ANYWHERE WITHIN THE WINDOW to drag its position on a Mac OS screen?

Otherwise there are only two tiny little areas upper right and upper left to grab the window without making a selection with the mouse.

Is there any way to Save directly to a specific List I've created?

Now, I only see how to Create a List, but then I have to Save (to my general Saves), the Copy To List, then delete from general Saves if I don't want duplication.

My issue is that I have a huge amount of likes in my Instagram interactions and I would prefer to not have to just manually scroll. There are extensions that if the scrollbar is at the edge of my browser screen they all work. but sadly if its a scrollbar not at the edge of my browser screen they do not take affect.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/autoscrolldown/?utm_source=addons.mozilla.org&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=search


if the solution is with javascript in console, or to edit the html

just inform me what you need me to get to get from the body inspect element in order to know what element is the scrollbar i will do that for you!

i just want this to be able to be autoscrolled, but the extensions wont do it

if someone could help me id really appreciate it

Hi ! J'utilise firefox depuis très longtemps sans me rendre compte qu'il connaissait ma position, et n'ai pas de problème avec ça. C'est quand j'ai voulu lui dire que j'habitais aux États-Unis pour changer la langue et le type de résultats (correspondant à ce dont j'ai besoin, mes études et recherches) que je me suis retrouvé coincé ; il ne m'affichait que mon adresse, toujours des résultats en français et aucun résultat pertinent malgré ma langue anglaise. Que faire ?

Merci par avance, Jacques.

Hello Firefox Community,

I hope this message finds you well. I am reaching out regarding my website, TheGamesDownload.org, and I am keen to ensure its optimal performance and compatibility with the Firefox browser.

I have noticed "https not valid" when accessing my website through Firefox, and I would appreciate any insights or suggestions on how to address this issue. Additionally, I would like to ensure that my website adheres to best practices for compatibility with Firefox.

If anyone has experience or expertise in troubleshooting compatibility issues or has insights into Firefox-specific optimizations, I would greatly appreciate your input.

Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.

I've seen other people ask this question, and the stock answer appears to be: a) They may be different subdomains, but they're the same site. b) Just add an extra bit on the end of each user name so you can get at the correct one.

Unfortunately...

a) No they are most definitely not the same site: myFirstClientsDevSite.mytestdomain.com mySecondClientsDevSite.mytestdomain.com myThirdClientsDevSite.mytestdomain.com myFirstClientsUATSite.mytestdomain.com mySecondClientsUATSite.mytestdomain.com myThirdClientsUATSite.mytestdomain.com

You see the problem? Firefox treats all those sites as being "the same site", even though they patently are not.

b) I'm working with a lot more than three clients. Plus, that suggestion is basically "we admit that our product is broken, here's a work-around that a few people may be able to use".

And finally: I'm pretty sure that Firefox used to be able to discriminate between subdomains, so the question isn't so much "how can I get it to work", as "why was it taken away in the first place".

Hi Guys,

I use Firefox personally and for business. I use a lot of very useful extensions and like many users I customize my experience. I have found that the number of extensions I use every day is larger then can be shown on the extension toolbar. I am aware that clicking on the "jigsaw" icon will open up all the extensions, however this is not practical and wastes a lot of time. I would like to substantially reduce the size of the search box and increase the available size for my extensions to be in one click territory on the toolbar, how do I best achieve that please?

Cheers

Youtube bottom left corner URL won't go away - full solution

Moderators, I am copy and pasting the below warning I have seen on similar posts at the top of the post.

--- WARNING: This script is not provided by Mozilla and is not officially supported Creating a userChrome.css file and other ways of customizing Firefox that are not exposed in the interface are there for developers, not end-users. If it were intended for end-users, you would see a menu option or checkbox; you wouldn't have to hack a text file in a hidden location.

What this means is that even though the functionality you want is no longer supported, a third-party has found a way to do it using the CSS file. If it breaks in new versions, you will need to contact the person who provided the script.

[Warning was not added by moderator, but by me to save someone time.] ---

With that out of the way, here's the issue I have, how I've solved it temporarily for the community.

When I load YouTube videos, I am given a statuspanel message with the URL of the video playing. It's not momentary or temporary, it stays there, the entire time. Why anyone thought this was a good idea, I'm not sure.

My question is simple, is there an alternative solution - to remove this statuspanel message permentantly - to what I'm sharing here, without using the userChrome.css file?

If so, please provide the solution so it can be tested and upvoted by the community, thank you in advance if that is you.

If there is not, then this post also serves as solution as well as a request to Modzila, that being.

Modzilla. Please make a solution that doesn't need custom .css scripts.

I am posting this as I needed multiple posts to achieve a solution so am hoping this serves as that for someone (including myself) until Firefox resolves this issue themselves, another way.

Solution: Windows 7/8/10/11 as of Firefox version 120.0

1. Go to about:config, click Accept the Risk and Continue 2. Type "toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets", toggle this to true 3. Close all instances of Firefox 4. Open Explorer, navigate to %appdata% then navigate down to \Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles and select your profile folder. If you only have 1 it may be obvious, if not for me it's the only "~.default-release" folder, where ~ is a random set or letters and numbers. If you're unsure, pick the first folder named like this, then repeat the next steps for all profile folders, or use trial and error if you prefer until you achieve the desired result. 5. Make a new folder "chrome" in that folder. 6. In this folder make a new .css file, right click make a new .txt file rename the file and extension "userChrome.css". 6. Open the blank .css file with a text editor and paste this line without quotes "#statuspanel {display:none!important;}" and save. 7. Attempt to load videos or pages where messages usually appear in the bottom left and observe the results

There are various other posts both here and other places that I have combined to write this solution, none of the others worked on their own, for me, which is why I write this and to refresh the request to the Modzilla Firefox team, to please, share or make a solution so we don't have to do this, as you'll otherwise need to continue supporting this legacy feature in future versions of Firefox.

Note: This will likely remove all statuspanel messages on other pages too, I have read other statuspanel commands online so if you want to be particular about muting some and not others, you may need to modify the file further.

Whenever I open a new tab or window, I'm greeted with the Firefox home screen, which displays various shortcut tiles.

Currently, I have a shortcut for Amazon, which includes a handy blue magnifying glass symbol 🔎 indicating it's a search shortcut and not a shortcut that will take me to an URL. I'm looking to set up similar search shortcuts for YouTube and Google. I've attached an image below for reference.

If anyone is familiar with how to customize these search shortcuts in Firefox, your guidance would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you have any tips or steps to follow.

Hi, I'm looking for some creative solutions to be able to search for Bookmark Folders imported from other browsers. I have over thirteen thousand bookmarks and I have used some extensions to delete the duplicates. However, that has left many empty folders and worse where my Bookmarks have been removed from these folders.

With Chromium browsers, we can simply search for a Bookmark folder by typing it's name. It will show itself in the search results along with Chrome bookmarks. However, that's not the case with FF. Instead, FF allows us to create TAGS. When I search for a known Bookmark Folder (I can see it in the Bookmark Tree) it won't show up.

it's almost 2024 and I find it surprising that Mozilla hasn't yet incorporated searching for Bookmark Folders. At the same time, I am also (not) surprised that Google hasn't implemented TAGS like in Firefox. Unfortunately, neither browser is ideal for searching bookmarks including folders.

Perhaps I'm missing something and there's a feature in the About:config that allows us to search for Bookmark folders.
