I am writing a WebExtension to communicate with a server using XMLHttpRequest.

I load this WebExtension temporarily by about:debugging. It works well if I do not login into my Firefox account. It can get data from the server.

But after logining into my account, it returns "xmlhttp.status: 0" immediately when I trying to do the same thing.

I removed all other add-ons and WebExtensions, But still I have this problem.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Is there a reason no one has developed a simple Restart browser button, that will open the browser in the same, last session?

I know you can do it from "About:Profiles", but it would be convenient to have it on the toolbar. I'm sure a lot of people would appreciate it.

The solution works, great, however this should be the default, it allows zooming, it is more balanced, etc.

There is at least two other threads that complained in or around this same issue, reset this to deatult next update or sooner!!

on the blank "tiles" on home page, there is the 3 dots, but no option to edit. somehow I got one of these tiles filled out/in, but I cannot repeat it. I believe I dragged from bookmarks, does not now.

After the update that changed the bookmarks menu spacing in the most unhelpful way, I have reduced this stupid double padding between the folders with a hack - an now with the current update to 91.0.2 - it is back on!!???

Whose idiotic idea it was without giving us the OPTION of single OR double padding??

Why do we have to look online for the hacks and workarounds to remove this most idiotic and controlling change??

Please bring the single padding back NOW or I will completely switch to Chrome or simply will stop updating firefox!

You will NOT control how many folders and bookmarks I can see in my top menu bookmarks - and this idiotic double padding has removed half of them from my menu!!!

So basically I like redesigning my macs look every few months and i want to add a picture to the start screen, I want to have the original one - it still saying Firefox however I want a background behind it, much like chrome. I found a solution but it involved a lot of code and doing some really confusing things so what should I do? I don't want to install any add-ons. Also if anybody find the coding solution anywhere could you please re-explain it to me? Thanks :)

I want to have a different browser settings for both browsing the web and controlling my media player.

I currently do this by using a different browser, firefox for web and opera for a local web based music player.

Ideally I would like a browser instance that only has only Close and Minimise buttons and retains size and position. I cannot seem to do this with any browser, they all want to give me tabs, menus, shortcuts, in short, to much clutter. I have managed to create a chromeless window but then that becomes the default for all browing windows.

I would like to achieve this with just Firefox.

My last try was this, with Chrome because Firefox wouldnt play at all.

--app="data:text/html,<script>window.location='http://moode.local/#notarget';window.resizeTo(750,600);window.moveBy(246, 50);</script>"

I have been using Firefox for years, and until today everything was working okay. Now, all of a sudden, whenever I try to open a PDF using my school library's website, I am being asked to either open a PDF in Firefox, Adobe, or save the file. Because my library allows me to view PDF copies of books and access the table of contents, this does not work for me. Again, all was fine yesterday, but today it has suddenly become an issue.

I've just added UK English and restarted Firefox. Now, why can I not remove US English, even though that one shouldn't be in use, and I still can remove UK English, even though that one *is* in use (or should be)?

Greying out a button is only recommended when it's crystal clear why that is. In this case, I have no clue why I couldn't remove US English, and so gryeing out that button makes no sense to me. It should be enabled, and display a message explaining why a language can't be removed if it can't be.

For the moment, can someone please explain why US English can't be removed then?

A few months ago Firefox decided to double space all the items in menus. Reading through the forums many people didn't like this because of the amount of space that the menus now take up. Fortunately there was a work around, by setting 'browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled to false they returned to normal

This morning Firefox my got upgraded and the double spacing problem is back again. However there appears to be a bug with the setting and the menus won't return to normal. I'm now stuck with stupidly large menus that won't fit on the screen and lots of painful scrolling.

Does anybody have an alternative workaround until this is fixed?

I have my instances running set to 2. BECAUSE I WANT TO. Please don't try to explain why such and such is better. I am good.

Yet no matter what I tell Firefox, I may have up to 10 instance running with only one window open. Yes, I have the current process limit set to 2. I have the recommended block empty. I have tried it with "use hardware acceleration when available" checked and unchecked. it doesn't matter, Firefox still runs numerous instances..

How do I control this? it is eating up 30% of my memory at times.

Hello,

I would like Firefox to either remove private browsing altogether or password protect some of the addons that I would not like to be turned off in private mode. Currently there's this addon 'Block Site' and this keeps my browser very regulated for me or anyone who uses my computer. However the whole purpose of it vanishes when you have the setting 'Run in private mode' set to 'off'. So anyone can simply set this to off and you have the whole browser without the addon functioning.

Can I put a password to this setting? Or maybe lock it so nobody can modify it?
