I'm running Ubuntu 20.10 with GNOME Shell extension Unite which can add the minimize, maximize and close buttons to the top bar and remove the buttons from the title bar of apps. The does not work in Firefox, minimize, maximize & close remain. I'm assuming this is related to Firefox's ability to remove the title bar all together so tabs can be at the top. The Firefox Customize... page allows you to change just about everything else in the UI except these three buttons.

Is there a way to remove Firefox's minimize, maximize and close buttons?

In case it matters I really only care about the Close button (not Close tab) because GNOME Tweaks lets you remove the minimize & maximize buttons from all apps.

Thanks

Hello. After reading numerous posts addressing similar issues & having no success, I've decided to post a question of my own. I am running the current version of firefox, 94.0.2. I use the Search Bar religiously for searches to sites like google, wikipedia, youtube, amazon, and ebay. I NEVER use the address bar for searches. I have attempted to disable all functionality associated with searching via the address bar. When I go to the address bar, it is because I have a specifc url I know I want to type with a specific destination in mind. Occasionally, I have a need to just go to the home page of one of my search sites, most often it's amazon.com. Recently (not sure which version of firefox) I've found when I go to the Address Bar & type amazon.com, I cannot just go to amazon.com, instead the address bar turns into a search bar. How do I disable this? Its driving me mad! I swear I've disabled every option I can within about:config related to urlb. Please Help. I don't want to switch to Chrome, but I'm tired of my settings getting messed up every time mozilla pushes a new version.

In Ubuntu 18.04, I bring up a new page, click in the search bar in the middle of the page. Then when I start typing it jumps to the address bar although I have already placed and preferred the search bar to the right. No! NO! NO!

I use Duck Duck Go but Google does the same.

It is bad enough that the upgrade was automatically loaded but on top of that, changing preferences including dumping my home page. Change privacy settings without asking ( to a lower level on top of that ).

Really POOR form.

Hi - I have been using Kaspersky Password Manager for many months, and it has great autofill capability for many browsers. It has been working great with Firefox, but as of a month or 2 ago... it suddenly stopped working. I checked my extensions and it's no longer there. When I search for Kaspersky extensions... I don't see it anymore. Only "Kaspersky Protection", etc. Does anybody know if the extension isn't available for the current Windows version of Firefox? Of COURSE it works great in the (C-Word... CHROME!) Yuk. Thanks.

We have a new add-on of our own that we were trying to add to the Firefox browser. This add-on was tested locally and worked fine. However, upon trying to install the official add-on to the browser, it is throwing the following error, "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt".

The add-on in question is, https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/searchgiggle-search/

Any suggestions to address this issue would be appreciated.

I also noticed another post or two about the same topic. As per those posts, the issue got resolved automatically after some time. Can I expect the same?

I have lost all sound comming from firefox after disconnecting an audio output device while it was being used.

To be more precise, the output device is shared between two computer via a hardware usb switch. I was a bit to fast switching from one to the other multiple times and all audio bugged for a few second, everything worked after that except for firefox.

I have no sound comming from firefox even when using an some other output (such as a headset from a jack).

Firefox does appear in the volume mixer but no sound to be seen there either. (see attached image where firefox and spotify both are playing music, but only spotify is working as intended). However firefox does not appear at all in eartrumpet's volume mixer

I have tried : - PC reboots - firefox re-install (un-installed, deleted the %appdata%/firefore, before re-installing) - turning FF hardware acceleration on/off - using a different profile (about:profiles) - disabling all plugins - disabling / enabling every audio output in the device manager

Until yesterday everything I customized for Firefox 89 in June of 2021 and FF 91 in August of 2021 was working fine.

Today I updated to Firefox 96.0 and when I open my Firefox returned to that old visual that I hated

tabs with spaces , but that's not the worst. The worst is the newTab visual that came back to the small and ugly bookmarks of the page we usually navigate. That are set on userContent.css I remember.

I checked some vars at about:config and everything is as it was.

So do I need to set true or false any new var there? These .css files are like they was never read. It looks like to me there is a new var, we need to change it.

What did happen?

Hi,

Is there a way to disable the little notification that pops up showing what url is being loaded or that pops up when you mouse over a link in the bottom left of the browser?

I'm using an OLED and am trying to disable as many re-current static objects as possible. In my 25 years of web browsing I've never found this to be a useful feature so I'd rather it be disabled.

I can't seem to find any settings pertaining to it and all the info I can find on disabling is quite old and doesn't seem to be accurate anymore.

Any tips would be very appreciated.

I have read the same named question that has been archived and have not found a solution to my problem there. I'm using Macro Express to define my own keystrokes which works fine outside of FF. One of the keystrokes I have defined is Ctrl-Shift-k. A suggestion was to disable Developer Tools via about:config -> devtools.enable = false, but when I tried to use my definition of Ctrl-Shift-k, instead FF told me "You activated a Developer Tools shortcut. If that was a mistake, you can close this Tab." when in fact I wanted to have it invoke my own definition.

How can I override this (and other) keystrokes when using FF?
