I am using the ESR versions of Firefox and would really like to have the clients auto-update as soon as possible but I still want to test new major releases when the come available. Now I know I can use the early releases to test but that pins me down because then I need to be done testing before the public release comes out. So I am looking for an option to install auto-install all minor updates within the same major version but not auto-update to a new major version. Is something like this possible or where can I find this setting?

I like to disable the automatic restore of sessions in all circumstances. I'd prefer to retain my history though.

Using firefox 84.0.2 on Ubuntu 20.04 Whenever I logout/login or restart the OS, FF restores my last session without asking. It's ok when I close FF first (FF starts a new session) but every other app shuts and resumes gracefully.

There are a lot of similar questions suggesting various settings...

browser.sessionhistory.max_entries =0 browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewers=0 browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes=0 browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo=0 browser.sessionstore.max_windows_undo=0 browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash=false

"Restore previous session" is unset.

None of this solves the problem.

Comments on other post suggest that linux shut down causes FF to crash. Seems that you cannot disable the restore session after crash and I get no "Do you want to...." screen.

Is there no way to tell FF not to restore crashed sessions?

Every time a link is clicked or the page is refreshed, the Reload/Stop button plays an animation of the reload arrow morphing into an X and then back into a reload arrow.

This is very distracting. How can the user disable this animation?

Help guides from 2017 say to change the following about:config prefs: browser.stopReloadAnimation.enabled toolkit.cosmeticAnimations.enabled But these do not exist anymore.

Hello.

Flash files stopped being supported on January 12th. I am a user of a site where "mini chat" uses swf files as the sound of a new message. Since firefox does not play these files, is there any option to notify (e.g. beep sound) that a site has tried to play such a file? maybe some kind of addon?

Or is there a way to make swf files work only on this page?

Tabs and toolbars never autohide in fullscreen on Apple Mac

OS: Catalina Model: iMac (27-inch, Late 2013) (tested on Macbook pro 2018 and 2011 too) Firefox: 84.0.2

Expected functionality: First expand the window to full screen using the green window control. The expectation is that the tab and tool bars will eventually hide, however firefox implements this - by sliding up when scrolling or just sliding up and autohiding after a short time. The tab bar should then reappear when the mouse move to the top of the screen.

Functionality Observed: Tab and tool bars never autohide. They are always there. The only way to that they hide is when a video (YouTube, Netflix) fullscreen controls are selected. Otherwise they are there on every page and that is not the expected behavior. Id like every page to autohide the top bars (similar to what all tablet/mobile device browsers do).

Settings verified: browser.fullscreen.authide= true (see image). Hide toolbars is checked (see image).

Issue I have found posted on this do not provide a concise reason as to why this behavior exists when all settings are properly set.

I have several Extensions enabled like Badger and Weather and several more. Used to have an emblem for each one at the top right of my Firefox Home page but the Extension emblems or icons aren't there anymore. These Extensions are enabled. I can verify that. For instance I know I have the Weather Extension but without the icon to click on I can't open it. How can I put these icons back so I can use them? I looked under options on the General Page and I saw where you can drag icons from there back to the upper toolbar but the icons for my Extensions aren't there to drag back. The Extension icon is there... looks like a piece of a puzzle. I dragged that to the toolbar but when I click on it it goes to a page showing that my extensions are enabled. But I still can't open the Weather extension on that page. I know if I had the weather icon back on the upper toolbar it will show me the weather. Thanks for you help

Is there a way to change the default keywords for the bookmarks (*), history (^) and tabs (%) search shortcuts in the address bar?

Is that possible by changing an about:config setting or using an add-on?

In my case, the default keywords are really inconvenient. With a German keyboard, the ^ character does not appear directly after pressing the key a single time. To enter the keyword for history followed by a space into the address bar, I have to press the ^ key and afterwards two times the space bar on my keyboard. Other users might not know the fastest way of doing it and require even more steps (f.e. pressing ^ twice, then deleting one ^ character and pressing the space bar once).

In general, it would be useful to be able to adjust these keywords to the users' own preferences.
