When I used CONTROL + SHIFT + B it opens the bookmarks window, when the documentation says it should toggle the visibility of the bookmarks boolbar. I'm on 83.0 64-bit on Win10. I've also got FF Dev Edn (84.0b8 64-bit) and this shortcut works fine. I've tried refreshing Firefox profile/settings from the Help/Troubleshooting menu. Anything else I can try to get this working?

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.

Hello,

If I open a PDF from the downloads section of this page: example pdf (all the way at the bottom) I get a popup asking "What should Nightly do with this file?". I always want to open the pdf in the browser, that's why I checked the box next to "Do this automatically for files like this from now on.", however I keep getting the same popup over and over again.

This only happens for some links (e.g. the one I provided).

Is there any way to open *all* PDFs by default in Firefox?

Thanks in advance.

I've noticed that for a number of websites recently (eg. GMail, Twitter) that all the text I'm entering is getting red squigglies (as if there's a spelling error).

I have two dictionaries installed and do have spelling enabled. If I toggle spell-checking off, then the squiggles go away.

This has only started happening in the last few days/week. Previously the spell checking would work as expected.

I'm running Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) on Windows.

(Interestingly the form I'm typing this question in doesn't display the problem)

I was wondering if there is a way to hide the titlebar (tabs, bookmarks, url, extensions, etc.) like fullscreen mode does while in windowed mode. A hotkey toggle would be preferred. Currently I am using some old CSS I found online but it's got some pretty glaring issues such as search suggestions being cutoff. Supposedly this was possible back in 2011 with an extension and something called "zombie mode" but the extension is no longer available (and most likely wouldn't work anymore). Thanks.

How can I turn off permanently the new Firefox print feature, so that I again go directly to the familiar system dialog box in Windows 10 whenever I click on File/print in the menu bar? I don't see what this new print feature adds, except perhaps some people want the controls on the right side for whatever reason.

This sometimes happens for example while filling in a form on a web page. I intend to copy/paste text into an input box of the form but I accidentally paste it outside of the box. This causes Firefox to perform an undesired search based on my text.
