Hi,

I would like to create a pop-up blocker exception for a local temporary file like: file:///C:/Users/username/AppData/Local/Temp/DisplayURLs3227552811823012098.html

My firewall management tool generates a local report file, automatically opened by Firefox, but I can't add an exception like: "file:///C:" or "file:///C:/Users/username/AppData/Local/Temp/*"; it just does not work.

Thanks, Tom

When opening a new tab FF is opening Duck Duck Go after DDG has been removed. I have deleted and reinstalled FF several times, I have cleaned the cache.

I have set the homepage to https://startpage.com (SP,) I have removed the extension Duck Duck Go (DDG.) When starting FF it opens SP, but when I click on the new tab (+) it opens DDG. The trouble-shooting information below says that DDG is Enabled, but I have removed it and the extension is not listed in the Add-Ons manager.

I have set FF > Preferences > Home > ...New Windows and Tabs > Homepage and New Windows > Custom URLs... > https://startpage.com/ ...New Tabs > Firefox Home (Default)

Why is FF reverting to DDG? Where is DDG coming from? Can I stop/disable DDG from appearing?

Firefox plays audio (eg. of youtube videos) on the motherboard sound device even if there is a bluetooth headset connected via bluetooth USB dongle. Microsoft Edge and VLC plays audio on bluetooth video any user intervention. The win10 mixer shows that firefox is playing on audio on the non-bluetooth device and doesn't on bluetooth. I can't find a setting in Firefox to change this.

Hello, I tried Pocket , a stupid move, now it seems I am stuck with it. It is an invading application which keeps updating me with things I am not interested.

How can I :
-1- stop it 

-2- remove it from every where ? I remove it from the search bar, then I tried to use Preferences Firefox Home Content to stop it but it was not there ?? The Help Firefox page tells I should see options to stop Pocket there but I cannot find them.

What is the web page were I can cancel my Pocket account and remove my email so I stop getting all these messages ? I used to have a Firefox account without Pocket and I would like to restore that situation. Help ..

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.

I finally turned off the menu bar some time back and started using the Bookmarks Menu Button (the little star with an underline). With v89, the dropdown menu from this is huge. The fonts are a lot bigger than in v88, and for some reason, there are now two "Manage bookmarks" items, one at the top and one at the bottom. Is there any way, either official or through userChrome.css, to choose a small font? I already have a userChrome.css that I used to remove items from the old Bookmarks menu on the menu bar, but those don't apply to the BM Button.

How can I keep the browser setting to open pdf files with Adobe Acrobat, without doing advanced customization? It works every time I reset the option, but changes to "save" for the next time. Adobe says I should switch browsers, to Chrome for example.

I used to have Acrobat as an extension, but now there doesn't seem to be an option for that. Why is this?

I looked trough the new design and i must admit that i does not like that minimalism style at all. Is there any way to get atleast the colour of my title bar back to my normal Windows setting?

How do I get rid of this crap? I either select a crappy system theme and everything turns a blinding white, or go back to the theme I usually use where everything suddenly is dark. How do I remove darkmode while retaining my favorite theme? I don't want dark mode and I certainly do not want to be blinded either. There must be a useless setting added to the about:config that I can disable.

Thank you.

Is there a way to easily modify the right click menu when clicking a tab because 'Reload Tab' use to be on the top of the list when you would right click on a tab, now the top option is 'New Tab' and theirs the '+' on the right of the tab on the right so it also seems a little redundant to have it top of the right click list. Also Reload Tab seems more useful than the New Tab. So is there a way to easily modify that menu to get Reload Tab back to the top?
