My work consists mainly of capturing accounting data online. It is important that the browser warns me if I try to close or navigate away from a page if the data entered has not been saved or updated, but I no longer get these warnings.

Please help.

So I am hiding some menu items like for example

  1. menu_find { display: none !important }

however though the menu item is gone how do I get rid of the ctrl-F menu shortcut...

I have many such menu items to remove so I need a generic solution to override the short-cut icons associated with the menu items I want to remove

I've tried going in safe mode, turning of my Facebook container. Deleting cache. Signing out of Facebook. Also adjusting the backspace key in my Config. Having no problems on my Android phone or when using Opera. It's on on Firefox and on Facebook.

FACEBOOK screen suddenly moves to the bottom of the screen when I am typing a comment. Whenever I hit SHIFT+alpha_letter at the beginning of a line OR simply hit the backspace key, the screen suddenly shifts to the very bottom of the page again even if I have tried to scroll the page back up to the middle of the screen manually. This shifts the entry area where I'm typing down and sometimes off of the visible screen entirely. Just hitting the backspace to correct a typo causes the screen to scroll on its own. I have to scroll back down to the entry box and if I make another typo, it happens again. 

Please help. Been going on for over two weeks. I was hoping the new Firefox update yesterday would help. Nope. Still happening.

When I display the review page for any installed add-on, I'm unable to submit a review. A few details:

1) I do not see the expected, "Rate Your Experience" link 2) I'm logged onto my Firefox account 3) I'm aware it uses different credentials than Mozilla Support 4) I've tried clicking on the yellow stars but it doesn't allow me to rate the plug in or display any new links 5) I've read other forum posts from other users who've experienced the same symptoms

Ideas, anyone? Thanks,

I have multiple Bookmark folders. I want to export (and then import) just ONE of the folders to another computer.

When I go through the EXPORT BOOKMARKS TO HTML process the html document created contains ALL 18 FOLDERS even though at the time of creating the document, at the bottom of the export menu page in the "NAME" slot it showed just the name of the folder I wanted to export.

As far as I know there is no way to edit the html document to delete the unwanted folders. If there is, please share the information.

Thank you for your assistance.

In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.

You have very practical option for the address bar to separate it for the search bar. See the attached screen shot.

We have many local url addresses to the local web server, which the Firefox does not recognize as URL addresses and redirects to the search engine.

So I said in the option, that for the search purposes a separate bar should be used. But the address bar still redirects to the search engine although I said that that the address bar should be used only for the navigation.

Please make the address bar working for the navigation only if the option "Add search bar in toolbar" is selected. Otherwise there is no sense in the separate search bar.

Hello!

I am multilingual and write in multiple different languages, and the red markings from spellcheck underneath non-English sentences get annoying when they are so frequent. I understand that I can install multiple dictionaries, but that does not allow me to use more than one language's spellcheck at a time.

Is it possible to activate 2+ language dictionaries in Firefox?

Thanks for the help, Sylvan

With the new v85 of Firefox... for Microsoft Print to PDF...

the defaults for print headers & footers has changed and is no longer available to edit or even view. It seems as though my settings remain in place for other printing options like my physical printer but even there the options are not editable or viewable.

There used to be a "page setup" option but I have not be able to find this anywhere anymore.

I'm assuming that it has to do with the bug fix for pdf printing but doesn't seem that it should be an intended outcome of the fix.

Any work arounds anyone knows about or has found?

Hi

Running Firefox 71.0 (64 bit)

Well seems Firefox has been messing this up again.

Anyone have the new work around solution to get my tabs back on the bottom again. They were fine this morning then shut down and went out to lunch and when I came back they were back on the top again after months of being where I wanted them below my bookmark bar.

Thoughts on this?

Thanks Dave

OK I have been trying to go 100% Firefox for just a few months but with privacy and security as primary directive. It would be wonderful to just be in ine well moderated browser ecosystem and actually being able to have my preferences, interest and personal information centralized with eventual goal of digitally divorcing tech companies from my personal data. I still have to use a lot of different devies with varying OS and it literally took me two years to help Apple fix an AppleId problem. Now that I have that sorted out I have been hoping to move away from gmail entirely and eventually have my own mailserver but using icloud now for macs and pcs.


At a minimum it seems like even after forced manual I have not properly sync an imac with windows 10 PC. So to keep it simple I stay there but this morning when I typed into Firefox on my iMac its was google search not Duckduckgo. Not only have I synced it in firefox but icloud should be redudant and I had removed google from list of potential search engines. There seems to be some way for a hostile takeover of these settings and google connstant agressive intrusions asking for data is not just wrong or annoying its simply impossible to not have facebook or google track me beyond california digital privacy standards. The worst offender may be youtube. I want to fix the browser and sync my stuff. But I am also looking for extensions that will help me do that better.

I am pretty thorough and now just want to learn more and would like to believe one can have a semblance of privacy but it seems like it will be an adversarial experience when the companies that do can rollback privacy with clever tv ads. The 'providers' clearly do not give hoot about rules, preferences and laws designed to protect people's rights.. That is what is particulary frustrating. It is not a fair fight but a good one. I guess what I am wondering is if there are specific modules you could add to detect maybewhen an event like change in search engine occurs and whether logs may exist as to how or why the change was made. Even if it was an accidental quick through a popup in chromium or edge where I was always being cued to come back to Chrome. Logging out doesnt always seem to work so i tried syncing with and chrome with more or less same results. Very little actual control or at least a tendency to revert back to the data miners preferences over mine. I want to help stop that.

I'm trying to take off this "Extension (Tabliss)" tag on my url. I have followed the instructions down below from another Firefox support forum: https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/make-addressbar-text-extension-name-of-the-extension-shorter-or-hide/28026/3

The instructions I followed are listed below:

"Users can apply custom style rules to modify Firefox’s toolbar area by creating a userChrome.css file. This takes about 10 minutes so when you have time to take it slowly and carefully:

(1) Set up your chrome folder and userChrome.css file following the five six steps in this article:

https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html 45

I have a boring video there if you like demonstrations.

(2) This is the code to paste into the file. You can edit the file using Notepad or a better editor. Make sure to keep it in a plain text format with a .css file extension (not .css.txt).

See improved rule down in: Make addressbar text "Extension (Name Of The Extension)" shorter or hide

/*
   Hide Extension Name in the identity area unless
   hovered for half a second (updated for Fx80)
*/
#identity-box.extensionPage #identity-icon-labels,
#identity-box.extensionPage #identity-icon-label {
  visibility: collapse !important;
  transition: visibility 250ms ease-in-out;
}
#identity-box.extensionPage:hover #identity-icon-labels,
#identity-box.extensionPage:hover #identity-icon-label {
  visibility: visible !important;
  transition: visibility 250ms ease-in-out 500ms;
}

(3) Firefox should read the file at its next startup and apply it to every extension page you load."

Edit: So, yeah, I need help getting this tag off. I'm new to Firefox so it could be something obvious I'm missing. I have also tried CTRL+SHIFT+R to reload the page for changes and also closed and reopened my Firefox entirely.

Thanks in advance.

I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 . . . I was doing this (below), to customize my header and footer, but in this version of FF, I no longer see this in Options - only in: about:config . . . keyword "footer" . . . there, I would have to change it for 5 different ways of printing (to printers or to PDF)

I need to get rid of printing the URL in the footer - many times, it's too long, and I don't need it.

Where did the Page Setup option go?

I see in the current Print Options, you have to go to - More Settings / Margin / Custom - to see those. Why would they put this so many levels down?

It used to be: File / Page Setup / Margins & Header/Footer . . . "Customize" Headers & Footers:

Option 1 (left) . . . there are two leading spaces:

 > > &T
 > > &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Option 2 (left) . . . get rid of the ">"s, and just have the two leading spaces:

 &T
 &U . . . &D . . . &PT
