Several years ago style editor in Firefox browser console had an option to do text search in all of the stylesheets at the same time, instead of doing it one by one. I can't seem to find that option anymore, even though I remember seeing a keyboard shortcut for that later on.

Is it still possible to search in all files? If not, what is the best place to request bringing that feature back?

This is your slow Google connected browser, and you are asking ME how to fix it? or maybe I should spend 2 or 3 days reading how to get around all the problems, making notes for future reference? LOL I despise google but at least their chrome browser is intuitive. i am really disappointed in firefox browser. I used my microsoft account account to login to SKYPE i did the I am not a robot over 20 times, never got any help or tips from firefox, I did install something that was supposed to make youtube perform better. valid passwords did not work, and were not saved or rather There was no pop up asking if I wanted to save. I was dumb enough to think I could get away from Google! Firefox and duckduckgo are slow versions of Google Chrome etc on and on........

How can I stop loading some pinned tabs when Firefox starts? I know I can set about:config to not load all pinned tabs. What I want to do is not load some specific pinned tabs instead of all pinned tabs. I made a simple addon like the one I attached and tested it, but some tabs are loaded. I have tested this code with about 10 tabs pinned. (When I actually create the addon, I would run browser.tabs.discard() with a specific tab, but this will stop loading all tabs for testing.) This is unstable. Is there any sure way to stop the load?

--- manifest.json {

   "manifest_version": 2,
   "name": "discard test",
   "version": "1.0.0.0",
   "permissions": [

"tabs"

   ],
   "background": {

"scripts": [ "background.js" ]

   }

}

--- background.js browser.runtime.onStartup.addListener(discard_pinned_tabs); function discard_pinned_tabs() {

   browser.tabs.query({pinned: true}).then(async tabs => {

for (let tab of tabs) { await browser.tabs.discard(tab.id);

	    console.log(tab.index, tab.id, tab.discarded, tab.title, tab);

}

   });

}

// browser.tabs.query({pinned: true}).then(async tabs => { // for (let tab of tabs) { // await browser.tabs.discard(tab.id); // console.log(tab.index, tab.id, tab.discarded, tab.title, tab); // } // });

setTimeout(() => {

   browser.tabs.query({pinned: true}).then(tabs => {

for (let tab of tabs) { if (!tab.discarded) { console.log(tab.index, tab.id, tab.discarded, tab.title, tab); } }

   });

}, 5000);

Suddenly the volume control on remote Bluetooth Bose speakers quit working when streaming from FireFox, but continue to work with all Microsoft programs. Now I can change the volume of the Bose speakers using the laptop volume control, but no effect with the remote speaker volume control. This happened about the same day that the new Edge was automatically installed by Microsoft on a Win10 laptop. The same websites Bluetooth to the Bose from Edge with full remote volume and computer volume control as do files stored on the laptop played through a Microsoft music player. Funny how that tempts one to change the default to Edge -- conspiracy? Is there something I can tweak either in Bluetooth or in FireFox? Jon I have now confirmed that the problem is with FireFox and not with the bluetooth Bose speakers. The pause/play and volume buttons on the Bose speakers work with Chrome, Edge and Safari as well as music players from Win10 and an iPad -- but do not work from any of those devices with FireFox. Is there something I need to do to FireFox on my end, or is it just broken? Jon

For the past month or so I cannot get Twitch.tv to work at all. I consistently get the error message on the site called "Failed to Load Module". Sometimes it loads but for the most part it doesn't, and when it does load it usually takes awhile. I've cleared cookies and data history, removed and disabled extensions. Flushed DNS cache. Nothing seems to work. I can get it working on Chrome but not Mozilla. Anyone else having this issue?

I'm trying to debug a network problem and I'm using the WebDeveloper/Network stuff to do it , this on FF77.0.1 on win10. It seems to be simple form stuff, but I can't catch [and analyze] the POST the page is doing. For a while I thought it was just ignoring the POST but as I looked more carefully I could see the POST flash by and was immediately replaced by the GETs it generated. Do I have to do something special to see the POSTs it is sending?

Suddenly I am having couples of troublesome with Firefox browser. Using Windows10,Firefox 77.0.1.

Problems: 1. Google MAP is not responding.. no street view icon or other icon at the corner. 2. Google Image only shows 20 images, and It will not enlarge images when I click one. 3. No display of “I’m not a robot” dialogue. Cannot access the site that requires.

I have uninstall and reinstall Firefox with deleting all the profile folder from AppData folder related to Firefox, but still the same problem. Using other web browser(Opra, chrome), there are no problems, everything works fine. Also using Firefox from another PC with same network, it works fine. So it is just with this main PC..

Than you in advanced, if any solutions.

My operating system: Win 10 Pro 1909 18363.836.

My browsers are Firefox 70.0.1 as the default browser and Windows IE 11. Virus protection: Kaspersky Total Security 20.0.14.1085.

The "Secure Browser" from Kaspersky opens immediately with IE 11, with Firefox 70.0.1 the attempt ends in an endless loop that does not open.

Reinstalling the programs brought no improvement. Where is the mistake?

Hi there :-)

W.r.t. FireFox 77, I need to know if the 'Open Menu' button on the far right of the default installation is PROGRAMMATICALLY customizable ? I want to remove it as part of hardening the browser for a desktop application that must be accessible via the Internet. While I respect the fact that client-side hardening is not best practice, let's not go there please :-)

I have successfully used userChrome.css, but I don't want to have to place this file manually nor manually set the 'toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets' preference to 'true' on all the client machines, but rather manage this centrally on the server side as is possible with autoconfig.cfg together with the autoadmin.global_config_url preference setting. Is it possible?

I have also tried specifying the 'browser.uiCustomization.state' in the autoconfigfile.js file changing the default 'about:config' setting from this >>>

{"placements":{"widget-overflow-fixed-list":[],"nav-bar":["back-button","forward-button","stop-reload-button","home-button","customizableui-special-spring1","urlbar-container","customizableui-special-spring2","downloads-button","library-button","sidebar-button","fxa-toolbar-menu-button"],"toolbar-menubar":["menubar-items"],"TabsToolbar":["tabbrowser-tabs","new-tab-button","alltabs-button"],"PersonalToolbar":["personal-bookmarks"]},"seen":["developer-button","webide-button"],"dirtyAreaCache":["nav-bar","toolbar-menubar","TabsToolbar","PersonalToolbar","widget-overflow-fixed-list"],"currentVersion":16,"newElementCount":10}

to this ('pref') format >>> {\"placements\":{\"nav-bar\":[\"stop-reload-button\",\"customizableui-special-spring1\",\"urlbar-container\",\"customizableui-special-spring2\",\"downloads-button\"]},\"dirtyAreaCache\":[\"nav-bar\"],\"currentVersion\":16,\"newElementCount\":10}

but while the other controls are removed, the 'Open Menu' button as well as the 'Back' and 'Forward' arrows are not removed even after restarting Firefox. Is there another preference that should be used to remove or hide at least the 'Open Menu' button?

Thanks for your help. APB

This same link works if I sign on with Google Chrome, but I prefer to use Firefox.

I am adding a new device. I changed the primary email months ago.

Now, when I go to sign in for sync I get prompted for may email and password, after validating that I get an email with the verification code.

After writing the verification code, I get an error message saying invalid password, and it shows my old email that was used for the account.

So now there's no way to configure sync, even writing the correct password for that old email account, repeats the process with no luck.

Old email address was completely removed months ago when I added the new email.
