In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.

My Firefox Browser has just updated itself automatically to 78.0.2 (I use it with MacOs 10.14.16). Since then, I have been unable to access Wikipedia. Whether I enter an url or I try a search through the search bar with the Wikipedia module the result is the same: nothing happens at all. If the url bar is empty it remains empty, if there was another url before it comes back instead of the wikipedia url I typed. The same thing is occurring on both my MacBook Air and my iMac which run under a previous version of MacOs.

Some sites are missing favicons making the toolbar useless if I have to use text to identify them. I quit using FF because of this about a year ago as all the solutions on here did not work. Seems as though FF could fix this internally as it is not a problem on Chrome, IE, Edge or any other browser I have used. Why can't FF fix what seems to be very simple problem? Came back and it is still a problem. Again all the listed fixes that I have to initiate, have not worked. Why can't FF fix this through an update. I am not the only one who has this issue and it is exclusively a FF problem. Not a computer expert but this seems to be a VERY easy fix via updates especially since it has been an issue for literally years. Don't want to go back to Chrome as I like all that FF stands for, but... Thanks for reading

cannot log in to my Bank of Montreal online banking!!!

I've used Firefox for years, and for years I daily do my online banking.

Now all of a sudden, without any warning I cannot log into my bank account. I've tried clearing history, etc. I've tried the about:config change...

I can log in fine with Microsoft Edge.

My wife uses Firefox and she can log into the bank. I suspect that is because Firefox has not updated on her computer.

This is maddening, to put it mildly.

I would like to use HTTPS to access my router's web interface without having to bypass the "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead" page.

Following my router's instructions I exported the certificate. I then accessed the Privacy & Security settings in Preferences, and under View Certificates I imported the router's certificate.

When opening the HTTPS web interface Firefox reports SEC_ERROR_INADEQUATE_KEY_USAGE.

Does anyone have experience with this phenomenon:

When you click on a torrent link on a page opened in Firefox 83 (and above), the first window pops up, but the second one (in which uTorrent would come) is no longer. Nothing happens. Specifically, the entry is C: \ ProgramData \ Microsoft \ Windows \ WER \ ReportArchive \ AppCrash_uTorrent.exe....

If I revert to Firefox 82 or 78.6esr, the error will not occur.

If I choose not to download uTorrent but to download the torrent file, it works fine with all versions of Firefox.

There is a website that I used today and discovered that it does not display correctly on Firefox although it displays correctly on Edge and Chrome.

I have attached screenshots of the webpage on all 3 browsers and you can see that the there are 2 ticks missing from the Firefox screen where the text says Available in-store at Karingal and at Pick up Avaliable.

I tried running Firefox in Safe Mode but it still did not show this screen correctly.

I am running Firefox for Desktop version 78.0.2 (64-bit).

Any suggestions on what is causing this and a solution would be helpful.

Thanks.

This happens when along with the search result google website deploys what it calls "Knowledge panel's". These are boxes of information related to what was asked in the search box, and appear not all the time but at certain (more common/famous) topics and persons. when that happens, despite the fact that I have the browser at full screen open, the wide screen monitor appears too small to the google website, which is unusual.

This manifests itself in the form of a horizontal bar at the bottom of Firefox browser's tab that I'm supposed to slide in order to see the edges on the right side. This never happened in dozens of years of use of this browser. It started happening in recent weeks. I initially thought it would go away but it hasn't. Even tho by now I have gone out of my way to open a new profile. This problem persists even when I have all addons disabled. Concurrently when I open other browsers google.com shows no horizontal bars.

I am aware that this problem can be mitigated if I reduce the Firfox's zoom down to 90%. However I don't consider this a solution on a small laptop (1366 X 676).

Hi.

We have just begun to test Firefox 91esr for an anticipated rollout in October 2021. That's probably going to be optimistic. I'm trying to revert the toolbar and browser style to be an exact replica of the attached image (theme not withstanding).

We surveyed around 250 users and only 2 like the new FF91 toolbar and tabs. So got to go with the 99.9% of people. The userChrome.css file I am using is here: https://pastebin.com/8SFM3i1k

The userContent.css is:

/* Remove color effect filter on autofilled fields */

-moz-autofill {filter: unset !important;}

/* Remove filter on all fields */ input {filter: unset !important;}


I'm getting confused with the naming. We have Photon and is it now Proton? And what I'm trying to get back to is Australis?

Enabled style sheets and I can get the theme working. But when I add the chrome folder and it's contents instead of getting what you see on the attached image I get the default style with the ugly square tabs - the default in v78

I also can't seem to stretch the toolbar vertically. It's too damned compact.

The addons I want to use include new tab homepage, which seems to install but doesn't show in the list of add-ons and doesn't work. Perhaps I should approach the author for that issue.

The reload in the address bar works in 78.13, but in 91 it puts the reload button the on the far right... Another add-on problem for the author.

How do I remove the favorites icon from the address bar?

On webpages there is a settings cog in the top right corner. I'd also like to remove that.

I'm a PC builder, not a coder, so the css is provided by the generosity of other people.

thanks
