Hello. I like to end my text conversations with this cute little fish: <{~~< But it's quite difficult to type on a desktop, so I made a shortcut to it in my mac OS, by typing pf. It works everywhere on my machine but on firefox, which is my preferred browser for chatting, so it's the only time I really need to use it. It's a serious buzzkil, especially since it SHOULD WORK, but doesn't. Can anyone help? I'm on a brand new machine, with a brand new (June 29 2020) download of Firefox with the french canadian language pack installed (it didn't work before I put the language pack on either).

Thanks in advance.

Using Options>Colors>I changed the background to "Black" and left the font "White", which was the default. I wanted ONLY the BLANK homepage black. I have a dark theme made by MaDonna. Immediately something altered, FF blinked (so to speak) and next ALL pages are a black background, including ALL webpages. Using FF instructions, I got back to a white blank homepage, but all the webpages have remained black. I've tried every combination (shown on your instruction page) to get back to a "white" background on the webpages. The "Always," "Never," only on ?? themes, clearing cache, returning to defaults, & I can still change the BLANK HOMEPAGE to either black or white, but nothing changes the webpages back to their normal views - white backgrounds. The only thing I haven't done is remove all cookies, because I truly do not want to do that.

Everytime I open the suggestions in the address bar Search with Google or Search with Amazon appear at the top. You cannot remove them by using the 'forget about this site' feature and if you change the browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus to 'False' you don't get the suggestions. Can you tell me how to permanently remove Search with Google or Search with Amazon from the suggestions. Thank you.

I find that I dislike many of the standard installation configurations. I'm a tech and install Firefox to get users away from those "other" browsers. But there's too much I don't like and it takes me too long to reconfigure each new installation.

So... I'd love to have a configuration script or something that could be run with the Firefox installer, full one if necessary, that would do all the tweaks I do after a new installation.

Examples. Remove all the extra stuff in the area to the right of the address bar. Leave and change download arrow to NOT hide when not currently used. (Who thought of that should be fired). Put old bookmarks icon back in place of other one. Remove the blank spaces on each side of the address bar.

And configure non-default options such as ask where to download instead of default to downloads, load previous tabs on startup, set default home page, disable password remembering, etc.

And, ideally allow installation of add-ons I always utilize like Bitwarden password manager (much preferred to Firefox's storing them), and Adblock Plus.

Any chance of any of this becoming available? Really don't want to use one of the screen recording/macro programs to do it.

Thanks.

Is it possible to open Firefox from command line (or shortcut) without loading the URL or tab bars?

My current workaround is to load the URL and then click a bookmarklet which opens the tab in a popup window. Is there a way to open a link directly in a popup window?

I've scanned about:config to no avail, and it seems all the popup extensions just do what my bookmarklet does.

Ideally there would be a command line flag like --popup which does exactly that, but the closest thing I could find is --headless and --kiosk which don't work that way.

I also made a new profile named "popup" and intended to add extensions which hide the nav bar, but it looks like extensions aren't allowed to do that any more.

I've installed Firefox Multi-Account containers but I don't have either the shortcut in the upper right corner, nor the option to open a link in a new container (see screenshots attached). I've removed and added the add-on several times as well as doing clean installs of Firefox. Nothing is allowing me to use containers, though it shows installed.

I have made no changes to the default preferences (wanted to get this working before tweaking) and the only other add-ons I have are NoScript and YouTube Flash Player by Maxime RF. Removing either or both of those has no impact on my problem, as far as I can tell. Enable Container Tabs is checked (and grayed out) in Preferences, as the add-on requires it.

I'm on Firefox 77.0.1 (64bit) Clean install of pop!_OS 20.04 LTS

This is immensely frustrating, so any help would be appreciated!

Hello, all...

I'm running Solus 4.1 with the 5.6.18-155 kernel on my Asus UX330UAR and Firefox Nightly 79.0a1 (2020-06-26) (64-bit). Currently, I used Android Messages for Web via a "webapp" in Brave and am provided a "desktop icon" for that window; however, I'd much rather use my default Firefox and just discovered the "browser.ssb.enabled" setting.

The "trouble" is doing so does not provide any icon to launch by itself; that is, I must be already in Firefox to use the "App Mode."

Any ideas on how to accomplish this dream?

Thanks for any ideas!

Hi,

I have recently changed my first choice browser to Firefox. But when connecting to my bank the F-secure bank safe connection doesn't open (it still does on Edge).

When searching solutions I found on F-secure support that a requisite for bank protection on Firefox was to active an add-on in Firefox called "Browsing Protection by F-Secure". But I can't find it. Is this Firefox add-on deleted? (I have surched the archive/store.)

Do you have any other solutions how to activate the F-secure bank safe connection, and some kind of F-secure browsing protectiona s well?

Hey, So I have set my homepage to netflix and it until recently would always open on netflix whenever the firefox icon was clicked on the desktop. recently it stopped doing that and only shows a blank tab. The settings for homepage are still set to netflix. If I load firefox in safe mode then it does load netflix. I have deleted and purged firefox, deleted my profile folder, and removed all extensions. But it is still just showing a blank page when opening a new window. Also if I create a new launcher on the desktop and have it load firefox and any webpage it will open firefox but not the page. When I click the homebutton it takes me to netflix. I know this isn't really a major issue, but it's pretty annoying. Thanks for your help, Jim

I really need help with this problem. I recently had to re-download my Firefox to fix an problem I had with my Computer and when it was done, my Browsing Protection by F-Secure no longer is working. I went to the extensions and it was not there. I then reset it on my Security Suite and nothing. I even re-set my Security Suite and Firefox to fix this problem and again nothing. On Google Chrome it works but not here. I even tried to search to see if it could be added through the Extension, nothing. So here hoping you guys know a way to do it. I really do not like searching without it.

Thank you
