I want to be able to control when firefox updates are done. many times, i try to sign on for a quick task. The firefox updates immediately kick-in and cannot be stopped. this prevents me from accomplishing my intended task in a timely manner. I want to do the updates on MY schedule, not Firefox's.

Hi Team - I would like to change the primary email address on this Mac Mini to the one I use on other devices. When I add the secondary email address I get a message, "Account already exists" and the address is not accepted. I guess I could Delete Account and start again but that seems a bit drastic and I don't know what data might be lost. Any pointers please? Thanks, Ian.

I am starting to hate your updates.

Every time settings are removed, things are changed, using becomes more complicated and there is no guidance. Once it wiped out all of my saved bookmarks. Every. Single. One. Hundreds of hours of research gone.

After this last one, my new tab page settings disappeared along with all of the shortcuts. My bookmarks in the header also disappeared. Where did they go? Unknown. How to change this? Unknown? That option no longer appears in the settings menu. Or if it does, it was renamed/relocated. I looked everywhere it should logically appear.

My bookmark shortcut disappeared - it is no longer an option to add a site from the browser header. Where did it go? Unknown. How to change this? Unknown. That option no longer appears in the Settings menu. Or if it does, it was renamed/relocated.

Why make using your browser more complicated? I get tired of having to rebuild my browser settings every time you folks update. When an update includes drastic changes, we should be warned and instructions for accessing the old settings included.

Is there a way for the new window animation in Firefox for Mac to be disabled?

Safari does not do this, but firefox has a... ~100ms animation for new windows that's extremely frustrating for those of us who do not use tabs (Apple's Exposé/Mission Control obsoletes them).

I haven't found a configuration in about:config, although I've been able to disable a few others.

I know my Firefox (Win 10) blocks ads because I can see where they were supposed to be. Also, Youtube ads at the beginning of a video last only 1 or 2 seconds. But I've forgotten how I achieved that. I can find no evidence of an ad blocker on my computer or my Firefox browser. How can I find out how ads are blocked?

A few of my extensions are not showing up in my toolbar at the left top of the window -- specifically, my Evernote extension. It is turned ON in my "Settings" area, but not showing up in the toolbar.

This is a Mac Studio, 2022.

I also have two other Macbook Pros. The extensions show up on my Firefox browsers there.

Thank you Polly

I used to be able to install an extension, and than see it automatically pin itself on my toolbar now I have to select the add ons and theme icon on toolbar and manually pin each extension I install one by one. I do not want to have to keep doing this. Will someone please tell me what is going on and how to revert this back to how it originally was?

Compact mode: bookmark spacing/padding in Firefox 112.0 on Windows 10 - (since version 89?)

Firefox 112.0 running on Windows 10 64-bit laptop with a small (pixel geometry) display screen has unnecessarily large padding (white space) around each bookmark as I navigate bookmarks on the bookmark bar.

I believe this was a change instituted around version 89 (in a nutshell, I could see more - twice as many? - bookmarks listed within a bookmark folder with version 88/before. The vertical whitespace between bookmarks within a folder is excessive and makes it much more necessary to scroll within a (long) list of bookmarks in a folder when looking for one.

There was a procedure posted in the discussion below on how to set and enable "compact density".

Bookmark Padding in New Firefox Versions 2 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1369996

The procedure below was attempted - browser.compactmode.show enabled, browser restarted, however, I cannot fin "Customize Toolbar" and "compact".

"go to - about:config search - "browser.compactmode.show" - change to TRUE , then close that window go to - Customize Toolbar at the bottom of that page, there a box called Density. Click that, you'll see "compact (not supported)" Apparently, it IS supported because I chose that. (it looked like it ignored my choice) After I closed Customize Toolbar, the bookmarks were compact spaced again. Exactly how I need them."

Is this fixable/solvable?

I have AdBLockPlus (free version) installed and have not had any issues until today. Firefox did some updates and now the Add-In is no longer working. I have checked that it is specifically turned on for the websites I'm visiting and I've tried turning it off and back on to no avail.

This again!

This was resolved about a year ago; now the problem is back, as of updating to Firefox 113.0.1 this evening.

Initially post-update the close tab button was in a weird, random place on the tab bar. I have adjusted the margins to put the button back where it's supposed to be!

I changed :

.tabbrowser-tab .tab-close-button {
  opacity: 0;
  margin-left: -4.5px !important;
  margin-right: 2px !important;
}

to:

.tabbrowser-tab .tab-close-button {
  opacity: 0;
  margin-left: -4.5px !important;
  margin-right: 35px !important;
}

to move the button back onto the left. That may seem like a drastic change but that's the lowest value I could find which produced the result I want.

However, it's not quite the result I want! As of updating to 113.0.1, the tab title itself now disappears altogether on hover.

I have tried to correct this in CSS using the .tab-text and .tab-label attributes, but without any luck so far.

Can anybody help me with this, before I'm forced to downgrade to Firefox 112?

Better yet... how about we just make this an option in Settings, as it should be?!
