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

Hi,

Is there a way to remove the "delete" option when right clicking on items in the download history? It's unfortunately right above 'remove from history' and easy to mis-click. It has no confirmation and permanently deletes the file(s) without sending to the recycle bin which is quite annoying - especially as I'm not sure why you'd want to use this menu to delete something you just downloaded.

Thanks

How to modify the default dark theme?

e.g. where can I find dark theme files to create a new theme starting from the dark theme?

I've tried using Firefox Color, but there is no option to start from the default dark theme. Also, it seems that there are only a few options to customize using Firefox Color.

I cannot find theme files in ./AppData/Roaming/Mozzila/Firefox/

Hi! I recently made the switch from Chrome to Firefox and Im liking it aside from this one thing. When Im watching a video in full screen, moving the cursor to the top doesnt pop up Macs top bar (File, Edit, ..... battery, time).

This sounds like a banality but I mainly watch videos while getting ready, working etc, and I really need to see the time! Im used to always keeping the cursor at the top to see it. I searched around in settings and forums but didnt find any fix. The only solution seems to be to not use full screen which I think we can all agree just sucks in a major way.

Im using MacOS Monterey 12.3.1 and Firefox 102.0.1. Is there a way to fix this or nah? Any info much appreciated!

[Windows] Can't disable displaying "media control" on lock screen even if turned off via advanced settings

Windows has feature that displaying media control popup on its lock screen. Firefox has an option to turn this off via advanced setting, but turn "media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled" to "false" doesn't stop showing it up.

Also, on certain website (in my case tweetdeck), control screen of previously viewed and closed video is keep showing up and can't erase it unless restarting browser.

I asked this question on Microsoft forum but suggested it's Firefox issue. Does anyone have same problem? How can I fix this?

I've spent days, reading the forums and other places on how to fix this issue, and nobody or anyplace has an answer. I've tried every single thing. I've been using firefox for many years, and have built and fixed computers for over 20 years.

This is unreal. I've been given instruction here a couple times, and they don't work. I'm being told, "it works for everybody else" So I'm the only one having this problem. Can somebody that knows how to fix this dam issue with all addons and themes being corrupt?

I'm also using waterfox with no problems at all with addons and themes, I've tried chrome also, and all firefox addons i use and themes work fine. What's the deal?

I have the option set to always ask me if I want to open a pdf with browser, acrobat, or to download. I usually select open with Acrobat and, for the last few months, I have been getting an unwanted download as well. I found in the help articles that this is now the default action. For me, it usually means that at the end of a session i have to go to my desktop (my optioned destination for downloads) and clean it up by deleting every file I have looked at.

I recommend that you make that functionality optional. I just want to view the vast majority of things I open. For the few that I might want to download after viewing them, i would prefer to take a proactive step to download them after I have reviewed them.

I like to set my home page to my search engine, and I want to type on the page in the nice long search field there, not on the d---d address bar! The following preferences have all been offered as fixes to eliminate searching in the address bar, but none of them are currently working for me in FF 102.0.1:

Do about:config; search for the browser.urlbar.suggest.searches preference setting it to false.

Also browser.fixup.alternate.enabled needs to be set to false Also browser.urlbar.oneOffSearches = false

Also to disable searching when typing an address (e.g. the URI fails to resolve and it tries to use a search engine) turn keyword.enabled to false.

What does work?

Is there any way to open the about:config page to a specific setting? I frequently toggle a particular setting on and off and would like a quick way to bookmark it for easy access.

I'm thinking something along the lines of: about:config?setting=media.peerconnection.enabled

Even better would be to allow a new value to be passed in as well: about:config?setting=media.peerconnection.enabled&value=true

I have used Firefox for years. I am computer literate and do not like the newer approach Firefox has taken to save all downloads to my downloads folder. I have to continually go in and manually delete the files.

For instance, I have a lot of pdf forms that I have to open directly in Acrobat, those files are then duplicated and saved in my downloads. This is causing a mess for me.

This was NOT an improvement in my opinion. Is there a way to stop this???
