Hello,

I'm using Containers and am able to log into different gmail accounts simultaneously.

However, I'm curious as to whether or not it would be possible to link a specific account to a specific container? (e.g., my work email automatically logs into the work container, same for personal email).

I use LastPass, but would Firefox passwords work to make this process more automatic? I set "Gmail" to automatically open in my "work" container, but it takes me to the landing page and requires me to sign-in every time.

Perhaps, I should just stop clearing my history/cookies and just hide the containers instead so the data is saved and I remain logged in. I am curious if there is another solution that I'm overlooking. (I would be down to help build one, too!)

I've installed firefox on my new mac to match my desktop pc a little better. It works smoothly on desktop, but on this mac it seems to be nothing but trouble. Every time I reset my macbook I have to login to firefox manually, and then I'm faced with all my top sites missing. It's been mitigated slightly by adding bookmarks to my highlights page, but I'd still like to not login every time I reset. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm using firefox developer edition. The latest version: 76.0b2 I have firefox.cfg set up to overwrite new tab content with locally stored html. The code in firefox.cfg that worked until recent update:

/* set new tab page */ try {

 var newTabURL = "file:///G:/Documents/Newtab.html";
 aboutNewTabService = Cc["@mozilla.org/browser/aboutnewtab-service;1"].getService(Ci.nsIAboutNewTabService);
 aboutNewTabService.newTabURL = newTabURL;

} catch(e){Cu.reportError(e);} // report errors in the Browser Console

In the browser console there is an error message displayed:

[Exception... "Cannot modify properties of a WrappedNative" nsresult: "0x80570034 (NS_ERROR_XPC_CANT_MODIFY_PROP_ON_WN)" location: "JS frame :: firefox.cfg :: <TOP_LEVEL> :: line 7" data: no]

Any idea what that error message means and how to resolve it? Does anything changed regarding new tab overwrite?

Firefox 76.0 64 Bit for Linux Mint 1.0 Mint 19 Cinnamon3.8.9

How can I prevent a single tab from closing?

I would like to prevent the keystroke Ctrl W from closing the active tab.

My understanding is that it is impossible to change keybindings in Firefox.

I thought an alternative might be to set Firefox to warn before closing a tab.

I had no luck in finding such an option.

Is there such an option?

If not, any other ideas?

M computer (still running W7) auto-updated FF to version 73.0.1 and two things happened. First, the tabs now cover the navigation bar, and second, the "plus" sign to the right of the tabs disappeared so I can't go to my pinned tabs or add a new tab.

Any help will be appreciated. I do have a userChrome file, but it was a copy and paste and I don't know how to adjust it to correct these things. Or if there's something in about:config? I just don't know what I would try to change.

I've been trying to take a screenshot, but can only grab the webpage and not the "frame" so I can't demonstrate what I'm talking about, but basically the tabs are sitting right on top of the navigation toolbar, obscuring it.

Thank you all for your help.

I had previously posted the "Why doesn't Firefox provide the option of tabs below menu bar?" at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1276795

I believed that the issue was solved by cor-el at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1274416#answer-1279083

However, I have since discovered that this fix does not work in Private Browsing mode. Tabs still overlap the bookmark toolbar as they did with regular browsing before applying the aforementioned fix.

Does anyone have a modification to the userChrome.css file or tabs-on-bottom.css file referred to earlier which will place tabs below the menu/bookmark toolbar when using Private Browsing as well?
