We have a W10 workgroup using an unmanaged switch to hook 5 PC's together through hardwire ethernet. The switch is also the access point to the internet "modem".

I would like to cause the PCs to use wifi to access the modem ONLY for internet and Thunderbird, with the workgroup remaining on the wired system.

With both "networks" enabled in W10 the PCs are automatically defaulting to whichever method was enabled 1st. I have no idea how or if I can "split" the flow and cause FF and Tbird ONLY to use wifi.

Hi, how can I zoom in and out on websites without changing any display or layout? For example, on some sites, zooming changes the layout of the text so that it all fits on the screen. Or zooming on some sites doesn't affect the size of the images, only the text. How can I zoom in so as to see the page in its original layout but with a wider view, thus preserving the scales of all the elements (as if I were zooming in on a picture) ? (in the screen below, zooming change the relative scale of the elements) Thank you for your help.

Hey guys,

I saw in the following post that I can modify the zoom values of Firefox to custom values of my choosing (e.g. 75%, 85%):

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1201469

I followed the instructions but it did not work for me. Yes, I did save the changes I made, and I completely closed & reopened Firefox, but the changes I made have not been applied for some reason. Please see the attached image.

I would have ask the question in the aforementioned thread but it's been archived so I had to open a new one. Does anyone know why Firefox does not seem to recognize my custom values (.75, .85)? Thanks!

Hello Mozilla Community,

I am looking for a free Firefox extension that can help me view the mobile layout of my website and identify errors to speed up the site. Additionally, I need an extension or tool that can help find and fix bugs on my WordPress site to enhance performance in the Firefox browser.

My website is [this site](https://topfollowapkguru.com), where I provide download links for my app. Ensuring the site loads quickly and is free of errors is crucial for providing a good user experience.

Could anyone recommend such extensions or tools available for Firefox? Any guidance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you for your help!

Best regards, Durrani Zeeshan

While hovering over a Youtube video it shows the full video title as "hover text" if the tab is focused. However, if something else, even another Firefox window is focused hovering no longer shows anything. Is there some kind of setting to change that? I figured it could be browser and Youtube specific because Chrome shows it on Youtube even when not focused, but neither browser shows it on Google search for example, but I'm not sure.

On Edge or other search engines I've been able to highlight, copy and past a web address where the pasted result is a clickable link to the website, but this doesn't work for Firefox. I have looked through the settings and other questions online, but found no solution, from what I can see people more often ask about the opposite issue to mine. Is this a limitation of the search engine or am I dumb?

How can you create **multiple** Firefox website shortcuts to the taskbar in Windows 11?

I have spent 90 minutes looking everywhere on the web--few people seem to understand the question--and no suggestions I can find anywhere on the web are correct.

NOTE: not referring to one single Firefox shortcut on the taskbar--that's easy.

I'm referring to pinning an ADDITIONAL shortcut to the taskbar (in FF to another website).

NOTE: not referring to creating multiple shortcuts in Firefox ON the desktop.

When creating multiple shortcuts on deskstop--there is no "Pin to taskbar" option in the context menu when the shortcut is right clicked. The only option is: "unpin from taskbar option." see uploaded image

Previously, it was possible--in Windows 10--to pin multiple Firefox shortcuts to the taskbar. It is still possible in Edge and Chrome. [I prefer Firefox and do not like to access my Google account on Chrome or Edge.]

So: how to create multiple shortcuts in Firefox to pin to Windows 11 taskbar?

Thanks!

Hi all; the subject line pretty much sopeaks for itself. Lately (within the past few days), whenever I open a new webpage, the sidebar appears. Until now it would only appear when I wanted it to, but now it's doing it on its own and it's annoying as ****. I've tried everything I can think of to stop this, so I'm giving you all the outstanding opportunity to help me remedy this aggravation. Many great thanks in advance!

Hi there,

I am unable to connect to my printer over my local wifi using the IP address when using Firefox (126.0) on MacOS. On Linux (Firefox 125.0.3, for Ubuntu), the procedure is simply to type the IP address into the search bar, and press enter, and it works. On MacOs, no way to get to that website, I only get a Google search (I also tried adding http:// or https://, or tried creating a Bookmark and modifying the address there, it simply refuses to update if I just have http://xxx.xxx.x.xxx as the address)...

Any chance there might be a way for me to connect to that IP-only website?

Thanks in advance!

I can control the number of rows. I can control whether to accept sponsored shortcuts. (I have chosen *not to.) I can control whether I want 1 or more rows to reflect recent activity. (I have chosen *not to.)

Yet until I pin my own preference to *every shortcut, it seems I cannot stop FF from putting "suggestions" in the empty slots, based on nothing but a single web visit.

This is annoying.

Moreover, if I visit several different pages connected to the same site, FF will put them all into shortcuts, with the same icons.

This is possibly even more annoying.

I am coming from Brave. They don't do things like that, although there is obviously a reason I'm giving FF a look.

But I would recommend, heartily, a home page shortcut box in settings that one could click (and actually *mean* something), like: "Don't ever suggest or fill in any shortcuts for any reason. I will handle it, and I don't like correcting your mistaken ideas."
