I am using firefox on a debian installation base: $ firefox-esr --version Mozilla Firefox 91.13.0esr $ uname -a Linux debian 5.10.0-18-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.140-1 (2022-09-02) x86_64 GNU/Linux $ These days web pages come with all kinds of cr@p; so, at times you need to just get all the links inside the page to parse/eyeball them. What I do is grab the "page source" and/or use "Link Gopher". I have been noticing lately that they don't work anymore. Why? The problem seems to relate to javascript generated pages. When you try to see the source all you see is some javascript one liner.

Of course, firefox must have a way to show the source since it shows to you the actual page unencrypted. Which settings in about:config should you change in order to be able to "go to the source" again? lbrtchx

I have Firefox set to "view PDF files in Firefox", but this is not happening with sites like Capital One and Consumer's Energy. these sites are just saving directly to my downloads folder even though I 1) Want to view the file first and 2) if it is going to save a flle, it is set up to ask where the file should be saved.

Neither of these things are happening even though I have them set up correctly in Settings.

To whom it may concern,

Quite some time ago, not sure exactly how long but at least 8 - 9 years I had an account for making "persona's" as they were called back then. Today they appear to be referred to as "Themes" to which I have made many. I can see my persona's still exist from a long time ago however, I do not know how to access that account, it requires me to enter an email address, not the account login. To my knowledge I've only ever used one email address and this is for the later account used for making themes, can you please advise how I can access my old account when they were referred to as person's ?

The login for persona's is/was KEV007

The account I use now for themes is done using my email address [edited from public] @gmail.com

I am not aware of any other email address I could possibly have used !!

Regards Kevin

I use the built in PDF viewer to open PDF Files. It has the function to add text. However I oftentimes forget to save the PDF after adding text. In other Programs (such as Microsoft Word, Notepad etc.) it prevents the shutdown on Windows when I have unsaved changes by showing a window which apps prevent a shotdown. Is it possible to achieve the same when forgetting to save changes made to pdf's in firefox? Or is there even a way to autosave PDFs after changing them?

Basically.

I see a lot of options on how to disable Javascript context menus on sites, for purpose.

I want the opposite - certain sites, most notably Google Workspace and Nextcloud, have a very useful Javascript context menu for things like tweaking format or renaming files.

But when I right-click in Firefox, the browser's own context menu pops up and overlaps with the site's, making it nearly unusable. (Pressing escape to dismiss the menu has a 50% chance of also dismissing the site's)

Any way to disable the context menu? Bonus points if it can be done on a per-site basis.

I'm sending you this message because there are some Add-on's/Extensions are no longer working but did work in the past. Some of the extensions are "'SoundCloud Downloader" & "SoundClound MP3 Downloader. I get the message "Can't Read or Change Data On This Site". I opened the website that I wanted to have them work on as I have done in the past.

I've Disabled, uninstalled, reinstalled the extensions but can not get them to work.

Is this a new "feature?" The add-ons that I need to interact with frequently have vanished from my toolbar and can't be re-added; they don't appear as options in Customize.

I've DONE the "delete extensions.*" thing and the problem still exists. I even tried creating a new profile, but the icons didn't appear as I installed the extensions. It's as though Firefox has unilaterally decided to remove this feature and didn't warn users about it.

I still HAVE the add-ons and can access them from the add-ons list, but that's inconvenient since there are only a few that I really need to interact with; the rest can stay out of sight and quietly do their thing.

Is this a bug that crept into the latest update, or is it something that you're wishing on users? I've loved Firefox for years for its privacy focus, flexibility and customizability; please don't take an ease-of-use feature away from us.

Hi All. Love FF but there's one thing that's driving me crazy... the different color of the Library window (see screen grab). The main window is this nice dark "cool gray" color, but the library window is this greenish color.

Is there a way to change that? I've had the userChrome.css file installed and feel fairly comfortable making code edits.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I downloaded Firefox on a new computer. I logged in with my existing account and synced my data

This was successful. All of my bookmarks and extensions were downloaded properly.

I went into the customize menu to alter my toolbar. However, there were no icons for any of the extensions that I added, such as Bitwarden or Ublock Origin.

Due to this, I am not able to add these extension icons to my toolbar.

I verified that the extensions were all properly downloaded and that they work as they should.

I have already attempted to restart Firefox, uninstall and reinstall certain extensions, and to reinstall Firefox entirely. However, my extension icons do not show up still in the Customize menu

I am not trying to do anything in the Private Browser.

How can this issue be resolved?

I know that there has to be a way to edit the about:config to manually disable individual add-ons (addons) for certain sites. Some add-ons have this built into the extension itself but others (like Honey) are either off or on, but I cannot find any documentation on it.

I would still like to use the extension without having to remember to turn it off and on all the time for websites that I do not want it to spam suggestions at me. Thanks in advance.
