I installed firefox on my new Windows 10 laptop and found that there is a persistent white bar at the top of my screen for some reason. This bar works when trying to resize or drag the window, but the typical way of clicking on firefox's banner at the top does not let me drag it anymore either. How do I get rid of this?

I find when I am browsing on Firefox and swipe down on my Macbook trackpad, the browser often interprets even a slightly leftward slant as a command to go back a page. Is there a way to disable the swipe left/previous page function or to make it less sensitive?

hello,

I want to use Firefox fullscreen on macOS, but when I press Esc button on keyboard accidentally Firefox escapes from fullscreen. And, I do press Esc by mistake a lot, because of a hand habit! Is there a way to aviod this? This is a very bad shortcut for closing the fullscreen! Other browsers has combinations to avoid such accidents!

If there's not way to change this I believe Firefox developers should make it a combination! This looks like a very simple design mistake!

For my work, I need to paste a lot of links into text (on a website which is probably somewhat poorly programmed), and when I select some text and hit ctrl+k to create a hyperlink, Firefox doesn't recognize that it's a text box and "takes over" the ctrl+k function, focusing on the search/address bar instead of allowing me to insert the link. (The reason I blame the website is that other websites, like Jira, work fine for this)

Is there a way to disable the ctrl+k functionality in firefox? I've seen a couple old threads on disabling various shortcut keys but I don't know what the "Focus Search bar" key would be called in either the Browser Console or configs.


Thank you!!

In the most recent FireFox updates (94), the New Tab page seems to have replaced my recent site Shortcuts graphics. Whereas this screen was previously displaying miniature images of the various web pages, they are now displaying only the web site favicon.

While I understand that this eliminates a potential security hole, my shortcut list contains a number of commonly-used pages from my own web site -- and now every single one of them has the same fav icon, instead of the mini thumbnail of the actual page. This makes it difficult and darn-near impossible to discern between the various icons, especially since every one has the exact same text -- the START of the URL (including the web site name), and not the END of the URL, which would actually allow me to know which icon is for which page.

I have already disabled the "newnewtabexperience" config option (which fixed this in the past), but it doesn't appear to be working any more. Is there a newnewnewnewnewtabexperience setting that I should look for?

Hey guys.

My question is very simple: how can I hide the Firefox 94 address bar on any screen size, including full screen?

I have been searching the internet for an answer, even in previous versions, the answers and suggestions were never clear. Including nonsense add-ons.

Is there any placement of moz://a? Does anyone have a tip that might actually work?

Thank you very much.

"Homepage and new windows" setting allows "Custom URLs" as an option. "New tabs" setting allows only "Firefox home page (default)" or "Blank page"

Why is there no longer an option in "New tabs" for a "Custom URL" ??

Is this just another of those program designers' decisions of a less-is-more "improvement" . . . ? Well, it's not.

How can I return to having my Homepage URL also designated for new tabs?

Thank you.

How to remove (for good) FF message window after screenshot

After I take a screenshot -- using the very handy FF command that now sits on my address bar -- a message box opens in the bottom right of the screen that says, Duh, "your shot was copied to the clipboard" and then gives instructions for pasting it. Although that seems to be fairly elemental information that is unnecessary, even if there is a good reason to keep it, must that message window always be in the same position? That is really a problem as it obscures one's ability to navigate on a page upon which he may be working. Look at the attachment. The FF window is covering the location where I want to put my cursor to work on that page that is in the background. In this case, I wanted to make sure the cursor was positioned in a different place for another screenshot I might put there (below the existing one).

Since I'm familiar with pasting or copying the screenshot and how to do that before this window opens, how can I remove for all screenshots, now and in the future, this window opening?

Thank you.

Hello You Lovely People,

I am so frustrated...for years, my Firefox Browser has worked flawlessly. I love all the feature and hate to switch to the dark side.

The two primary frustrations are as follows:

1. I have placed my settings to "Auto Populate" my email address line and password fields. The password auto populates w/o problem but the email field will not. I have reloaded the Firefox and checked and double checked the settings and since one half works and the 2nd does not, I feel the error is not mine.

I'd would love any suggestions

2. When entering text on the "Subject Line" for an email, let's suppose I enter: "Good" , hit the space bar to add "Morning"...the cursor moves back to the beginning of the line and inserts "Morning" in front of "Good". Then I am forced to add spaces and redo the Subject I had intended.

This is clearly nothing to do with me...it's just broken.

I have this problem across all my devices, excluding the iPhone as it's not Firefox, it's an Apple App. The Chrome, and Safari browsers do not have either of these issues.

I am a dedicated Apple user so all my laptops and desktops are Apple.

I thank you all and look forward to any ideas!!

Happy Holidays

Hiya there,

I work in customer support myself and was using Auto Text Expander for firefox by "Pete". Yesterday this firefox update has caused me to lose all of my data, completely putting me back to square 1 and affecting my performance.

On top of that, for the first time since working here I had to create some account when I was already logged in, help

I need you to please restore my shortcuts as soon as possible!

I look forward to hearing back from you so I can get this sorted please!

After the update to 89.0 the Shortcuts have taken an 'visual upgrade' that makes all the images chosen for them half as small as they need to be because they need to have a 'cute little grey border' almost as big as the image between it and the corners of the square.

I have twenty four shortcuts, that I differentiate at a glance through the images without having to stop to read the text on each one and this stupid change is really roasting my mellows, I have taken a look and haven't found any option to revert it to the previous look, anyone knows any way to do it or do I have to install the previous firefox update and stop updating and give up security updates to save myself from this stupid change?

I've browsed through a dozen of posts now and so far got my homepage to show me my local file. The problem is that I want this local file to also show when I open a new tab (Ctrl+T).

I've configured an autoconfig based on another post I read, currently have this:

In my autoconfig.cfg: // first line is a comment var {classes:Cc,interfaces:Ci,utils:Cu} = Components; var newTabURL = "path_to_my_file.html"; aboutNewTabService = Cc["@mozilla.org/browser/aboutnewtab-service;1"].getService(Ci.nsIAboutNewTabService); aboutNewTabService.newTabURL = newTabURL;

In my autoconfig.js: // pref("general.config.filename", "autoconfig.cfg"); pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); //pref("general.config.sandbox_enabled", false);


I have the last line commented because it worked for the poster, but it gives me an error that firefox couldn't load my autoconfig and that I should contact my sysadmin, lol. Other than that error message, it worked the same as it does now after I closed the popup.

If possible I don't want to use any extensions for this.
