Why was this changed? I always used view image, and if I needed it in a new tab or a new window I could use control + click or shift + click. This literally removes a feature for no reason. I don't want my images in a new tab all the time, sometimes I don't need the current tab. I'm just dumbfounded

Is there any way to temporarily disable Firefox (and Thunderbird) update reminders? Mozilla seems to be updating its software so often that I'm getting too many reminders and it's interfering with my work flow. I understand the need to keep software up to date as often as possible but this has now got ridiculous, and I am on the verge of changing my default browser from Firefox to Safari, Chrome or Vivaldi. Please stop forcing every little tiny update onto your users!

Or is there some sneaky little way I haven't noticed under Preferences which already does enable me to do this?

Chrome has a really fantastic feature called "Tab Groups" - it's pretty self explanatory but it basically allows you to quickly group related sets of tabs.

This is an incredibly useful feature but it seems Firefox hasn't got anything like it.

I've tried a few of the third party add-ons such as Tree-Style-Tabs but they're all over-complicated, take up too much screen real estate or change the way tabs operate.

Is adding simple Tab Grouping functionality on the Firefox roadmap?

If not - has anyone found any good add-ons to replicate the Chrome functionality?

Apparently Mozilla did an update and not it defaults to it's own printer dialog box. I hate it. There is a link to use the system print dialog box but it only works for that specific print job. I can't find a setting to force Firefox to always use the system printer dialog box. Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser becasue thr Firefox dialog box sucks.

Hi!

I am on macOS Catalina and am trying to change the copy-paste combination on my keyboard from Command+C and Command+V to Control+C and Control+V, respectively.

Under Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts, I already have a copy-paste setting for 'All Applications', and it works on ALL applications I tested with (Google Chrome, Safari, Telegram, terminal emulators, etc.), EXCEPT on Firefox.

So then I tried to add a custom setting for Firefox.app. Copy works: I can CTRL+C in a firefox page and CTRL+V on another app. BUT CTRL+V does not work in Firefox itself -- the previous shortcut Command+V is what still works.

What should I do so that:

  1. Numbered list itemFirefox will use the app shortcuts for 'All Applications' instead of having its own configuration (less important)
  2. Bulleted list itemCTRL+V would work on Firefox? (more important)

My Firefox version is 85.0.2

Thanks in advance.

++

Edit, additional info:

I followed the list of valid command names at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/keyboard-shortcuts-perform-firefox-tasks-quickly?redirectslug=Keyboard+shortcuts&redirectlocale=en-US#w_bookmarks. Adding some of them to 'App Shortcut' works (such as New Tab, Close Tab, and Bookmark This Page), and some of them don't (such as Find in This Page and Find in This Page).

How to have 3 separate tabs at startup but just one tab when I click HOME icon in Firefox browser bar?

Here's all I want. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. When I start Mozilla Firefox I want it to open with three tabs... ❶ https://www.goese.com/favorites/index.htmlhttps://www.goese.com/reference/unicode.htmlhttps://messages.google.com/web/conversations

From then on, when I click on the home button, I only want the tab/page I'm viewing to switch to this page... https://www.goese.com/favorites/index.htmlhttps://www.goese.com/favorites/index.html

Is Firefox capable of doing this? (Chrome is, but got WAY too slow recently...to a point I couldn't take it anymore.) Right now if I use those three pages for startup, the home button opens a new session in all three pages, which makes no sense to me. I need to be able to specify different & separate pages for "startup" and "home." I'm old so I'm probably just looking at the interface wrong.

Thanks!

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

Is there an option to get the old behavior back? When I'm browsing for reference images and I want to just have an image or video in a window I could just right click and use view image/video. Now it's open in a new tab.

You essentially just added one useless click to the whole thing which is me having to close the tab the image came from.

If you answer with, "You can just use copy image link and paste it in the same tab." You just turned what was right click then left click into right click, left click, move mouse over, click to highlight the address, ctrl+v

When I have to do this to hundreds of images every day, every single little click counts.

So, can I restore the old and better functionally? And really, when you do these changes, give an option to keep the old method or keep both.... Gesh...

Once again, the Top Sites that I have chosen on the the FF Home Page have shifted, or been removed. When I add them back on (and PIN) the site shortcut is there, but now I can't get the ICON that represents the Short Cut to appear and I have no idea how to find the URL for the ShortCuts, ie., the Twitter Bird that used to appear automatically, as an example.

I tried to take a Screen Shot, but the Screen Shot does not work on the FF Home Page.

Would it be too difficult to put a "Lock" button, similar to the Windows Lock for the Task Bar. PIN does NOT work.

I have not added any extensions or made any other changes that would affect this. Please advise how to correct this, and I don't want to have to follow directions that take me all over the place like go to file such and such and check such and such. That never works and usually ends up screwing up other issues. It worked once, I don't see why it doesn't work now.

Thank you for you time and I look forward to a SIMPLE solution.
