I'm trying to get rid of these blue selector things. Apologies that I don't know what they're called. They appear at random times and I cannot force them to appear. Just happens randomly it seems when some text is selected.

Can something in the about:config be toggled to disable this?

Thanks.

I love Firefox!!! But ..

After I updated I an no longer see the bottom 20% of the text in my All Bookmarks->Bookmarks toolbar where my toolbar only displays the text of the drop down name.

It seems to be a recurring issue where new versions really mess up the spacing in the drop down menus of the toolbar mostly (not this time).

My menus are just Perfect now .. although I'd love for the menus shown in the 'manage bookmarks' window to have Exactly the same spacing as the Firefox toolbar menus (the 'manage bookmarks' window has Much larger spacing and is a bit of a pain to use due to this).

Here's my no doubt primitive userChrome.css

menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menuitem, 
menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menu {
  padding-block: 3px !important; /* reduce to 3px, 2px, 1px or 0px as needed */ 
  min-height: unset !important; /* v92.0 - for padding below 4px */
}
:root {
  --arrowpanel-menuitem-padding: 4px 8px !important;
}

#placesList treechildren::-moz-tree-cell-text {
  font-size: 11px !important; 
}
#placesList treechildren::-moz-tree-row {
  max-height: 10px !important; 
  padding-bottom: 0px !important;
  margin-bottom: -3px !important
}

I am using a Windows computer. Is there a way to change the two finger swipe to go back (or forward) a webpage to a "THREE" finger swipe? Two finger swipes interfere with other things that I may be trying to do on a webpage. I often find myself scrolling through tables (using two finger scrolling) and then if I scroll too far in one direction it goes BACK to the last webpage I was on. This is super frustrating!

I know how to disable the two finger swipe using about:config. However, if it can be changed to a 3 finger swipe instead, that would be a huge help.

I have the latest FF installed, and have tried to install a couple extensions. Bitwarden and bypass paywalls. They both install ok, show up as enabled on the manage extensions page. But they do not run. They also do not show up with a left click on the extensions icon. BW in particular needs to be accessed to sign in to the pw vault, however, it's icon does not show up on the toolbar (nor does it show up as an option on the customize toolbar menu.) I have deleted the extensions.json file (other files mentioned were not found), but it made no difference. Any ideas?

Greetings, I've checked a few articles in Firefox to help with my question, but none of them are helping. (Here's the main article: http://example.com.) Here's the situation. Say I go to a website's Contact page and click the button to contact someone, a window appears and asks me what app I want to use to open the email. Gmail is my default email, and Firefox is my default browser, and I use Windows 10. When I open the window of options (see attached screenshot) to open the email, and I then click "Choose Other Application" (other than Firefox), I don't see the Gmail app anywhere. I then followed the directions in that link above to check my Windows settings, per its suggestion, which I did ... but in those settings, too, I got to a point where the directions no longer matched what I'm seeing on my screen. I didn't see the Gmail app anywhere. Could you let me know in simple layperson's terms how to open Gmail links in Firefox? I don't have a PhD in computer science, so please keep it very simple. Thanks in advance! Best wishes, Bill

Hi folks,

Since the last 109.0 update I've noticed a strange behavior with Firefox.

Sometimes after watching a video stream in full screen, my toolbar changes and moves all my customized icons / extensions etc. into this "more tools" drop down menu. I can reproduce this by repeatedly switching from full screen to the normal view

This is so annoying and frustrating.

Does anyone know how I can fix this?

I updated Firefox, and now I have tiny tabs at the very top of the screen, a URL bar permanently set with either their homepage or a search bar, and basically nothing else.

There are no settings or themes to change these things.

I can't read the tiny tabs, and I really would prefer a blank page and the small search bar off to the side if I want to search. I am often on cellular data and want to avoid opening anything until I choose it to save on data charges--and why can't I choose what I want to display?

Look, I am not a programmer. I am not risking messing up code in the guts of the browser to change these things because the person who wrote out these instructions is not going to be available to help me if I make a mistake.

Could I have settings to make the browser useful to me? I really don't want to go back to Safari, but I'm an old fart who can't see the new "improved" menu bar.

Greetings!

If this is actually a thing, I would like to know how to make it happen. If it is not a thing, this a suggestion that would be amazing to implement into the web-browser!

On my phone, when you scroll, it automatically hides the address bar and everything on it, to go 'full-screen'. I want this on my laptop. How can I make it, that when I scroll, or even just sit on a webpage for a moment, the URL bar will smoothly transition into being 'hidden'?

I want to be clear: I do NOT want to use the fullscreen, CTRL + F11 function, because then my Windows task bar is not accessible. Right now I have my taskbar hidden, which is fantastic because it gives my laptop screen a bigger feel. And if FireFox's URL could do the same... that would be beautiful.

Well the three dots menu appear in some pop-ups, but how to restore it in the main window? I think the three dots menu that was on the right side of address bar before version 89 (It is called "Page actions").

But please, don't tell me "That it is impossible" or "You can't, it was removed". If the some pop-ups have it, then there must be way for activation in the main window, but how? Maybe with JavaScript, but I am not friend with JavaScript (I don't know much about programming), is there alternative way without programming?

I am using Firefox 109.0 (64-bit) on Windows 11 22621.1192

Steps to see three dots (Please try it): 1. Go to https://webbrowsertools.com/popup-blocker/ 2. Click Method #3, and allow pop-up, 3. If you have installed in example: "FlagFox", and "Tab Stash" extensions, then you should see "Page actions" menu in the pop-up's address bar in right.

Hello everyone!

My use case is that I have pi-hole at home, so I want DNS requests go through it (DoH disabled, DNS reqs go as assigned by DHCP, actually it goes to DoH then). But when I am away from home (i.e. office) I want to have DoH enabled for privacy reasons.

Is there a way of modifying settings based on location? I guess the simplest way would be to do it with a script that checks my IP - if it's my home IP then disable DoH, otherwise enable. But I don't know how to make it work.

Can you share any experience in such task?

Thanks!
