I'm running Firefox 83.0 on Windows 10. In Outlook (Office 365) if I right click in a text field, wanting to switch the language for proofing the text, there is no Language item on the menu (see image). I have the English and French dictionaries and language packs installed. It shows up in other applications (e.g. this website), but not in Outlook. This used to work...

Hello I had Firefox version 81 and after installing version 82 in a new install on a new hard drive, I cannot change the color of my tabs anymore.

I should see white tabs for the current tab but no longer. Question: Is this been blocked now?

I see instead a thin blue color strip along the top of the tab and the rest is grey. This shows up without any userChrome file.

about:support shows my Profile. vwy0y5ix.default-release I also have under the Profile folder this: jcueuz5y.default

Question: Why 2 profiles now as I had only one before? See attachments.

I put the userChrome.css file here in the Chrome folder: C:\Users\David\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\vwy0y5ix.default-release

What it contains:

  1. nav-bar { -moz-box-ordinal-group: 1 !important; }
  2. PersonalToolbar { -moz-box-ordinal-group: 2 !important; }
  3. TabsToolbar { -moz-box-ordinal-group: 3 !important; }

.tab-background:not([selected]) {

   background-color: #E3E0DB !important;

}

.tab-background[selected="true"] {

   background-color: white!important;

Is there any way to revert from the pinch zoom back to the full screen zoom? I know that you can do the css full screen zoom via ctrl + pinch, but it seems much more laggy and slow than in older versions of Firefox. Is there some about:config option I can use to revert it? Or is it just baked in now.

Hello everybody!

I've recently found out about userChrome.css and love all the creations people made. But I have a slight problem. My close, minimize, and maximize buttons have a different color and size which kind of messes up the custom themes. I have a windows 10 skin but every other browser I tried have the default win 10 look.

Is there a setting I missed?

I use a 55 inch TV as my computer monitor with Windows7 OS. All of a sudden this week the animations are on every site... Netflix just became unbearable to watch. I have already gone though the steps to turn off all animations in Firefox. I performed these steps...

'''in about:config - type : toolkit.cosmeticAnimations.enabled - set it to : false - type : toolkit.scrollbox.smoothScroll - set it to : false'''

This did NOTHING to turn off the nauseating animations. Every time I scroll a web page I feel motion sickness. Every movie I watch now looks like garbage.

I ALSO have turned off ALL animations in Windows7... so this is really upsetting. Movies I have downloaded seem to play fine in VLC player, but if I use my browser to watch a video, it is now unbearable because of these garbage animations wreaking havoc on my screen.

Anytime Firefox opens it is asking for my Primary password. This has been happening for 2 or 3 weeks. I can enter my password or click cancel. But if I close and reopen the browser it happens again, regarless of what page I am on. (Annoying when clicking a link to read a short article) I do not have AVG or ISlet (sp?) installed. I tried that solution and it did not work.

Suggestions on how to debug, diagnose or fix appreciated.

Hello. Please help. I reinstalled Firefox and got 1 error. Previously, when I pressed the print button for a PDF file on any site, the PDF Reader and Adobe Print Panel would open in Windows. Now, when clicking on this button, an error occurs. To fix this in Firefox preferences, I installed PDF Reader for pdf files. And now the files open in PDF Reader on my Windows, its good. But there was a problem, when I press the print button, the print dialog box from "Adobe Reader Print " should also open (picture 1), but instead the standard " Windows Print Dialog " one opens (picture 2). In this window I cannot set the print properties and make a preview. Please tell me how I can fix this . Maybee can I restore this from the old profile using some config file? in another browser, the desired window is launched(

This all started while I was trying to open Spotify in Firefox. It kept telling me I need to enable secure playback. So I checked and "Play DRM-controlled content" is enabled. I did some googling to see what could be the problem. Turns out I need Google Widevine enabled, so I check the plugins page where I find out I don't even have Widevine installed. I also checked the default profile folder (root directory) to see if there's even a gmp-widevinecdm folder there but I couldn't find anything.

Is there a way for me to reinstall Widevine without having to create a new profile?

Whenever there's an update after I turn on my computer and go onto Firefox my start page is changed from what I had it last to Bing.com. I don't know what causes it all I'm sure of is that either Mozilla Updates or Windows Updates cause it because before then Firefox works fine.

11.23.20

Some time in the last week, the behavior of the tab key has changed in the address bar. Previously it would cycle through address/search bar items. Now it is opening up the autocomplete window for the address bar.

There are already keys that do that. (Down arrow, etc) I don't want another, particularly not another that I frequently used to tab over to the search box and favorites.

Does anyone know a way to revert or disable this behavior without completely disabling the auto complete window under that address bar? Alternatively, whatever shortcut keys now cycle through address bar items.

Hi, I would like to know how to control whether my add-ons should open their tabs automatically. I have alot of add-ons, and once in a while, probably after updating between two periods of time when using Firefox, add-ons would open their about pages, settings, home pages, etc. Can you please tell me how to assign what add-ons can open their pages automatically? That should save me from some lags and also a bit of time spent. Thanks!

I use Firefox Developer Edition (84.0b4) on macOS and pretty much never restart Firefox. Because of this I frequently miss updates. Chrome shows an update badge on the menu icon in the toolbar.

Re: MacBookPro circa 2013, macOS10.14.6, current and past versions of Firefox, Using YouNeedABudget.com,

YNAB is a personal finance budgeting system that I have used instead of Quicken for the past 10 years. Recently I updated my YNAB functionality from downloaded YNAB4 to server-based subscription nYNAB, which hasn't been equipped with all features for Safari, but is super-equipped (via TookKit developers) in Firefox. When I use Command Key to select multiple transactions in nYNAB, and then use the 2-finger scroll function on trackpad to find more below the visible range, the frame zooms out to infinitesimally small font, obviously making the font too small to recognize characters. Recovering previous font is tedious at best and frustrating to waste time and risks a loss of task concentration. The referenced Support Page doesn't even mention this action. This action does not occur in Safari, by the way, nor do I believe it is unique to nYNAB when using Firefox.

Please kill this apparently inadvertent Zoom action and substitute a MacTrackpad-friendly shortcut in next release. Thank you.
