After I updated my ff browser to the current version, certain websites have had their text all messed up. I first tried restarting the browser and then my computer. Next I tried to purge all cookies. I then tried to remove all add-ons and then purged cookies again, but the issue still persisted.

Firefox version: 105.0.1 (64bit)

OS: Mac Big Sur 11.6

Any ideas on why this is happening or how to fix?

how to set multiple start tab with multi-account container?

Hi there, so now a days in the company that I work, there are multiple accounts of the same website, like microsoft or whatever, which is a pain to deal and usually I went using multiple browsers.

For each browser I usually setup the initial pages to be the 3 main used ones like mail + chat + files.

Recently I found out about Firefox multiple-account containers, which is super nice to have all those accounts open at the same time in just one browser with different sessions on each container.

The question is, is it possible to have the startup of firefox, to open multiple tabs in different containers? So, when I open firefox, it opens all main tabs for all containers

I saw that you can have multiple start page with "|" symbol, but that does not play nice together with the containers.

If anyone has a tip on how to make this happen (multiple extensions or changing some config file) that would be very useful.

I was trying to customize the toolbar and I can't recall how, but I lost access to my extension shortcuts through the menu list button on the toolbar. I've been since trying to get the button back or replace it, to access my extensions that way but I'm not finding any options to get the button back which I find ridiculous because the button is very helpful on the toolbar in utilizing your extensions. I'm kind of a newbie so I'm looking for help in how to get the button back on my toolbar so I can utilize my extensions that way, please. Thanks.

Before the new update of Firefox the drop-down menu would color itself a red color, if one of the options were already chosen. For example, if a webside had selectable options of answers in a drop down menu, and answer A already was selected, it's fillcolor/highlight would be red - ensuring the same options wouldn't be chosen multiple times.

How do I get this "feature" back?

Hello, I'm trying to install firefox extension on selenium headless browser but I need to configure the extension to use an API key. The documentation of the extension says that I need to download the xpi file, extract the contents and to overwrite one of the js files and to hardcode the API key inside and compress it back to xpi but when I do that I'm getting error that the file is corrupt because when I change the file I'm breaking the add-on signing. I also tried to navigate to about:addons and put the code there in the preferences tab of the extension but I can't interact with input field for the API key. Is there a workaround for this? I went trough the code of the extension and I see that this key is saved in the extension local storage is there a way I can interact with this storage outside of the extension when I set up the browser driver? Any help will be appreciated. I'm using python-selenium 3.141.0

Hello!

I would like to know which about:config preferences I have to modify to increase the speed of loading pages in Firefox?

I know that when I disable telemetry data, Firefox is saving a lot of time sending this telemetry data, which increases the speed.

In addition, I know that the loading speed will be increased when I modify some HTTP preferences, but which one.

Please give me a full list about all I can modify to increase the speed.

I have set the "Homepage and new windows" and "New tabs" option to Tabliss

However when launching Firefox, it starts in google.com and when I checked the "Homepage and new windows" option it was reset to google.com without me touching it.

I tried using custom URLs and put in "moz-extension://something-something/index.html" but it still didn't work and resets to google.com when relaunching Firefox.

I also tried putting other URLs such as YouTube it still put me into google.com when relaunched and resets it again.

It only works when I open a new tab.

How do I make Tabliss (or anything else) as my homepage when I launch Firefox?
