hello :)

in chrome when you drag a tab out to open it in another window it automatically goes to a smaller window, firefox always copys what size the window was when you dragged it out. so when the window is maximised it will always open a new maximised window.

So my question is, when dragging a tab to open it in a new window is there a way to stop it from copying the size of the window you dragged it?

im really bad at explaining things so here are visual of what i mean - https://imgur.com/a/aSj0P2G

One website in particular is almost 100% black. I cannot see most text. On another site, I cannot see check boxes, can't see the trash can icon.

This just happened recently. When I switch to Light Mode in the settings, both sites remain dark.

What settings can I change so everything on a site is visible?

In the about:profiles page I can see that the Root Directory for my current profile is: /home/username/.mozilla/firefox/no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978 When I click the Open Directory button it does nothing. When I manually navigate to /home/username/.mozilla/firefox I can see that there is no folder there called no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978

The Local Directory is show as: /home/username/.var/app/org.mozilla.firefox/cache/mozilla/firefox/no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978 This exits and opens with the Open Directory button.

If I search for no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978 in the file manager, I see that there are two folders with this name, on at the Local Directory path shown above and the other at: /home/username/.var/app/org.mozilla.firefox/.mozilla/firefox My assumption is that this is actually the Local Folder (it contains files with today's date)

My question is, why does about:profiles show the wrong path for the Local Directory or why is the actual Local Directory in the wrong place (it appears that the path shown in about:profiles is the normal default location)?

I tried creating a new profile and it was created in exactly the same way: the Local directory path is: /home/username/.var/app/org.mozilla.firefox/.mozilla/firefox but about:profiles says it is: /home/username/.mozilla/firefox

I would rather have my profile in the normal default location but I want to ensure that I don't leave pointers to the wrong location that could cause problems.

I am running Firefox 121.0 (64-bit) from flathub on Debian GNU/Linux 12 (bookworm).

Any help appreciated.

I managed to change colors of almost everything in my firefox browser but despite selecting dark mode and trying all different options in firefox color, all the menus just refuse to not be white. So my question is how can I change color of all the menus (file, history etc.) to be anything other than white?

Within the Add-on Manager by clicking Manage Extension Shortcuts - you can make shortcuts for add-ons to perform specific functions via the buttons on your keyboard, but I want to actually be able to use the buttons on my actual mouse rather than the keyboard.

Does anybody know if this is possible? Currently when I try to use my mouse to input a 'shortcut' in the 'Type a shortcut' box nothing works.

Are there any about:config settings or add-ons that can enable me to use my Mouse to make shortcuts for my add-ons?

I have a new PC running Kubuntu 22.04, with Mozilla Firefox 120.0.1 (64 bit) installed. Standard, the system window title bar was hidden. But I wanted access to the "Move to desktop" menu and wanted the title in the title bar. So, in "Customize toolbar" I checked "Title bar". The title bar reappeared, but a complete border along the Firefox window became inaccessible, and when clicking in that zone, it effectively clicked in the window behind. In particular, the complete menu bar is inaccessible, as well as the scroll bar on the left and in the bookmarks sidebar the fold/unfold. And Mozilla Thunderbird 115.5.0 has the same annoying behaviour. Even when hovering over some menus in the Mozilla window, you can sometimes see reactions from the window under the Mozilla window. On older Kubuntu computers (up to 18.04) with older versions of Firefox (up to 113.0.2) and Thunderbird (up to 102.11.0) I do not have that problem. How can I get at the same time access to both the system title bar and the menu bar ?

Hi, I develop a firefox kiosk application for an IoT device and I'm wondering what setting disables this message?

This message popped up on a release of our software which hadn't applied a policies.json file yet, is it safe to assume it will be covered by the following policy which we have on a later release?

   "UserMessaging": {
     "WhatsNew": false,
     "ExtensionRecommendations": false,
     "FeatureRecommendations": false,
     "UrlbarInterventions": false,

I am trying to have Firefox show an "X" on every tab as soon as I hover above it. I followed a certain article and implemented this code:

/* Show Tab Close buttons only when hovered */

  1. tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned="true"]) > .tab-stack > .tab-content > .tab-close-button {
 visibility: collapse !important;
 opacity: 0 !important;
 transition: all 250ms ease-in-out !important;

}

  1. tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned="true"]):hover > .tab-stack > .tab-content > .tab-close-button {
 visibility: visible !important;
 opacity: 1 !important;
 transition: all 250ms ease-in-out !important;;

}

  1. tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned="true"]) > .tab-stack > .tab-content > .tab-close-button {
 display: -moz-box !important;

}


This code is however not being implemented no matter how many times I restart Firefox. 'toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets' is set to True The location is userChrome.css is '/home/user1/.mozilla/firefox/yqomjsh9.default-release-1672744596809/chrome/userChrome.css'

What could be the issue? I tried adding executable permissions using "chmod" but that did not change anything.
