Installed Firefox 122 in a new Windows 10 installation and added some extensions (e.g. Gesturefly, Update Scanner, uBlock Origin, Uppity). These pinned fine on my old installation. But I cannot find how to pin them on the new.

All the help I have found Googling, or using search here, says go to the Add-ons Manager page and right-click the extension and use "pin to toolbar". Alternatively click the extension and click the gear icon and use "pin to toolbar". But when I right-click there is no pin to toolbar context menu entry. If I left-click the gear I get "Check for Updates, View Recent Updates, Install Add-on From File, Debug Add-ons, Update Add-ons Automatically, Reset All Add-ons to Update Automatically, Manage Extension Shortcuts". If I right-click the gear I get a line of icons (left, right, reload, star) followed by "Open Image in New Tab, Copy Image Link, Email Image, Save Page As, Select All, View Pate Source, Inspect Accessibility Properties, Inspect (Q)". If I right-click the extension in the Add-ons Manager page itself, I get a very similar list. In no case is there a pin to toolbar option.

How do I pin an extension, given the above? What have I messed up?

I have the following settings in Settings/Preferences>General:

Files and Applications

Downloads Save all files in the following folder: Downloads Ticked Ask every time where to save a file

Applications Portable Document Format (PDF): Open in Firefox How should Firefox deal with other files? Ticked Ask whether to open or save files

On specific websites when I click on a pdf link, Firefox opens and automatically saves the file to Downloads folder without asking whether to save and where to save despite the above settings. As far as I remember, on other websites when clicking a pdf link Firefox only opens the corresponding file and doesn't save.

I found this with a internet search https://connect.mozilla.org/t5/discussions/stop-saving-pdfs-to-downloads-when-viewing-in-firefox/td-p/10225.

How can it be disabled that Firefox automatically saves PDFs?

Continuous 'Mozilla Crash Reports' from Firefox

I have a home-built media center (OS: Linux Mint 20.3) utilizing Firefox as the primary browser. This system has run almost flawlessly for many years. Updated to 20.3 in early 2022. Rather suddenly (yesterday) Firefox began repeatedly crashing, displaying 'Mozilla Crash Reports' (example attached). Firefox appears to initiate as expected. However, on display (e.g., Youtube, Facebook, web page, etc.) request, Firefox immediately throws a 'Mozilla Crash Report'. I do not recall any changes to the system that might have generated this condition, and have spend most of today unsuccessfully troubleshooting.

MB: Gigabyte F2A85XM-D3H CPU: AMD A-10 5800K APU with Radeon HD Graphics OS: Kernel: 5.4.0.170 generic x86_64bits; on 128MB SSD Firefox for Linux Mint mint-001 - 1.0 (122.0 (64 bit)) RAM: 7 GB

I have attempted to follow some of the moz://a Support pages (i.e., "Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems"). I have noted that while in 'Troubleshooting mode', Firefox appears to behave as expected, seeming to implicate extensions, themes and/or hardware acceleration. However, under normal Firefox operation enabling/disabling these does not seem to resolve the issue.

    * Hardware acceleration (on or off) still results in display of 'Mozilla Crash Report',
    * Default theme is selected, and
    * I don't appear to have any unaccounted extensions or other addons enabled.

Any thoughts and/or additional guidance would be greatly appreciated.

The most recent update to Firefox introduced duplicate 'Manage Bookmarks' option in the bookmark drop down. Is there a way to remove the bottom one in an option that I'm not finding? The only thing I've found searching is from a few years ago talking about setting up a CSS file, which I've never done before.

I see where other people have posed this question but the procedure offered is not available to me.

I am using Firefox (Flatpak) version 121.0 on an Ubuntu 22.04 laptop.

On installing a new extension I should either see the extension's icon on my toolbar or else have a clear means of adding it. I have neither.

Clicking on the jigsaw icon in the toolbar, I get migrated to the about:addons page. On clicking the Extensions tab, I get the screen listing all installed extensions. Each extension has a ... icon beside it. But when I click on this, there is no "Pin To Toolbar" option.

What is wrong here ?

This question was already posted and badly answered in 2016. Now things have changed a lot and Firefox DO try to translate everything which is quite annoying to anyone knowing more than a single language. No extensions related. I need to completely disable that. My firefox is up to date: 118.0.1 (64-bit).

Thank you Arturo

Fullscreening videos slides tabs to the right

Hi, so here's the issue I have: Lets say you have 20 tabs open where the "tab scroller" becomes active and tab#17 has a video, if you enter & exit fullscreen on that tab then tabs #18-20 will slide to the right and go out of sight. This is quite annoying as I'd prefer all tabs on the right to be visible until I manually scroll to the left.

I tried googling for about:config or userChrome.css solutions but couldn't find anything, does anyone have any ideas on how to change this? Thanks.

How to configure scroll speed deceleration when using touch screen

I am having a hard time getting accustomed to the Firefox scrolling experience. I am only using the touch pad and the touch screen. When I release the finger the time it takes for the scroll speed to come to a halt is way longer than on Chromium browsers and uncomfortable. I want to configure this to decelerate faster or to remove the smoothing completely.

I have tried playing around with scroll configurations and I found that setting apz.gtk.kinetic_scroll.enabled =false disables smoothing correctly, but only works for touch pad, not for touch screen.

- Is there some config I am missing to disable this kinetic scroll using touch screen? - Is there a preference where I can halve the time it takes to decelerate, rather than disable it completely?

I am running Ubuntu 22.04 on Wayland if that makes a difference.

Firefox crashed, Reinstalled it v121.0.1 Win Pro 10 (x64)

Although Extenions are reinstalled, I cannot find any way to get them into a toolbar now, (Using the Drag - Drop - Shift method)

There is supposed to be a "Gear alongside each extension" so that can be chosen, but no gear which works now.

Very frustrating as cannot properly access these extensions now.

Some time ago, I found the way to inser these Extensions (Addons) into the Toolbar, but cannot remember how I did it.

The Extensions show they are installed and "working" but it's rather useless nmot being able to get the shortcuts for each onto the Navigation Toolbar.

Appreciate help - Thank you.

I am using Firefox on a new PC. Whenever I type something into the address bar, all results appear under a small Firefox Suggest header, even though Firefox Suggest is not available to me in the United Kingdom. I believe it is possible to remove this header through about:config, and I did so on my old PC shortly after FIrefox Suggest was released in 2021, although I have long forgotten how to do this for obvious reasons. Could somebody please explain how this header can once again be removed, or is it a permanent feature? Thank you in advance.

hello :)

in chrome when you drag a tab out to open it in another window it automatically goes to a smaller window, firefox always copys what size the window was when you dragged it out. so when the window is maximised it will always open a new maximised window.

So my question is, when dragging a tab to open it in a new window is there a way to stop it from copying the size of the window you dragged it?

im really bad at explaining things so here are visual of what i mean - https://imgur.com/a/aSj0P2G

One website in particular is almost 100% black. I cannot see most text. On another site, I cannot see check boxes, can't see the trash can icon.

This just happened recently. When I switch to Light Mode in the settings, both sites remain dark.

What settings can I change so everything on a site is visible?
