FF version 57.0 was installed automatically when I started Firefox. As usual some of my settings have ended up in the toilet. I have fixed on but have 2 others I don't have a fix for. 1. "Open Bookmark in new tab with left click". 2. "Bookmark Colors are gone".

  • Is there a fix for these 2 items since we now have the improved version of Firefox?

Thank you in Advance

I am trying to find out what the actual point sizes are for the H1-H6 headings, as well as the point sizes for the (now-obsolete) font sizes 1-7. I have found the heading information at this link, but it does not tell me what the sizes for font size 1-7 are. I started looking for the location of the default css for the browser in the hopes that it would answer this question. However, the answers on the net are anything but accurate and (I think) apply to some older versions of the browser. Is there a specific css file (or files) that contain the default css settings for FireFox, and if so, where is it/are they located?

I am in the process of converting some older web pages of mine from using font tags to using css instead. Without this information I cannot accurately modify the page as the layout changes as soon as I change a font tag to a css property.

Summary: Opening a file from the Network Developer Tools tab will always become the foreground tab.

Details:

  • Firefox version: 77.0.1 (64-bit)
  • OS Version: 10.15.4 (19E287)

I'm using the Developer Tools Network tab, and would like to quickly view the sources of multiple files. When you right click a file's URL you can Open In New Tab, but it will not open as a background tab. No combination of keys will do it, it should just be command+click.

Reproduction:

  1. Visit any website
  2. Press ⌘⌥E to open Network tab
  3. Reload page
  4. Right click anything in the File column
  5. File opens in new active tab no matter what

I'm running Firefox 68.9.0 ESR, and it keeps whining about an update being available. I don't care, because every time I update, one of the extensions I use every day is disabled without my permission. How do I get firefox to shut up about it once and for all? In other words, where is the "do not check for updates" command hidden, or, how else can I shut this thing up? I have, in the past, liked firefox, but it has, over the last few years, supported less and less of features I use daily, at a minimum, many times/day for most.

So how do I shut these annoying alerts about an update I have NO intention of installing off? "You can't" is not a valid answer. Nor is "just upgrade and lose half of the stuff (again) that you use all the time." Sorry if I sound angry, but these constant annoyances (and Thunderbird is doing the same---so same question for it here) are really getting on my nerves.

I have Firefox almost working the way it should. Still can't click in a bookmark toolbar bookmark and then click on "add bookmark here" like I could. That was one of those I used about 10--30 times per day, depending on what I was working on.

Thanks.

Ever since Firefox automatically updated to version 77, I see a blank page on startup instead of it loading up my homepage. I have to hit the homepage button to load it up now. I had not changed any preferences, so it wasn't caused by anything I did.

FYI, I noticed that if I open a second Firefox window, it does load the homepage up automatically.

Based on past questions about similar issue, I checked to make sure about:config browser.startup.page was set to 1, and it was.

A known bug? target="_blank" and window.close() do no longer work together since Firefox 72

Assume you create a new window (pop-up) using javascript and have its content be something like this:

<html>
<body>
  <form action="some_action.php" target="_blank"> 
     ... some form fields ... 

     <button onclick="window.close()">
        submit in new tab & close pop-up
     </button>
  </form> 

  <a href="some_page.php" target="_blank" onclick="window.close()">
     open link in new tab & close pop-up 
  </a>
</body>
</html>


If you click the button "submit in new tab & close pop-up" the following should happen:

  1. Firefox submits the form in a new tab (because target="_blank" is set in the <form>)
  2. The pop-up closes itself (because onclick="window.close()" is set)

And if you click the link "open link in new tab & close pop-up" the following should happen:

  1. Firefox opens the link in a new tab (because target="_blank" is set in the <a>)
  2. The pop-up closes itself (because onclick="window.close()" is set)

However, what happens instead is this:

  1. Firefox only opens an empty tab, i.e. the submission of the form / the opening of the link fails
  2. The pop-up closes itself

This clearly seems to be a bug, right? Is this a known problem? I tested it with older versions and the problem apparently was introduced relatively recently with Firefox 72. More precisely, the form submission bug was introduced with Firefox 72 Beta 1 and the link opening bug was introduced with Firefox 72 Beta 7.

In Chrome and Internet Explorer both cases work as expected.
