Is there any way to temporarily disable Firefox (and Thunderbird) update reminders? Mozilla seems to be updating its software so often that I'm getting too many reminders and it's interfering with my work flow. I understand the need to keep software up to date as often as possible but this has now got ridiculous, and I am on the verge of changing my default browser from Firefox to Safari, Chrome or Vivaldi. Please stop forcing every little tiny update onto your users!

Or is there some sneaky little way I haven't noticed under Preferences which already does enable me to do this?

Chrome has a really fantastic feature called "Tab Groups" - it's pretty self explanatory but it basically allows you to quickly group related sets of tabs.

This is an incredibly useful feature but it seems Firefox hasn't got anything like it.

I've tried a few of the third party add-ons such as Tree-Style-Tabs but they're all over-complicated, take up too much screen real estate or change the way tabs operate.

Is adding simple Tab Grouping functionality on the Firefox roadmap?

If not - has anyone found any good add-ons to replicate the Chrome functionality?

The ability to edit and customize the headers and footers for printing was one of my main reasons for switching from Chrome to Firefox. Now I can't find where to do this. I don't know if it was a recent update or what but I am using Windows 10 Home. Please help so I don't have to find a new browser.

Hello everyone, I accidentally noticed that when I paste (Ctrl+V) text into the desktop version of Evernote from vk.com, a hyperlink from vk.com appears in Evernote at the top. The link leads to the page from which I took this text. I inserted this text into various text editors by Ctrl+V, plane text without any hyperlinks is inserted. Checked the Windows clipboard, there is also only plane text. Searching the internet, I found a CLCL program that caches the clipboard, and this is what I saw (see the picture in the attachment). I just copied the text, not the page form. Has anyone come across an extension that removes all metadata when copying text from a site page?

I have already: Ruled out fixes for very old Firefox versions, still online. Tried every preference, library, and bookmarking tool in menu. The three dots does not provide that choice. (It is the FIRST thing I tried.) Used the terminal to sudo apt-get purge Firefox and Used terminal to sudo apt install Firefox. Repeated above procedure after signing out, to stop any starless syncing. Signed back in. I had it when this computer was new, and I then installed Firefox, less than a year ago, Ubuntu canonical 20.04. Reinstalling should have the quick-bookmark star as I had when first installed. I have not: Selected "remove data from device". Next solution that actually works?

I've just today attempted to make the switch from Chrome to Firefox, so I apologize for my unfamiliarity with the browser. I've found that one of my add-ons does not show up in the Toolbar, where I would much prefer it to be for ease of access.

  • I have already attempted two other fixes I have read about: one about deleting files in the Firefox folder and restarting Firefox, as well as another involving the "Customize Toolbar..." option from the dropdown hamburger menu. The former yielded no results other than resetting my other extensions' access to Private Browsing. With regards to the latter, the add-on in question is nowhere to be found - this is not the case with the others, which show up and can be moved freely in and out of the Toolbar.
  • In the case that I may be asked to check it - I have ensured that I did download the add-on, as it is present in the "Manage Your Extensions" menu in the add-ons manager.

Are there other solutions that I may attempt before writing off the issue as specific to this add-on?

Thank you in advance.

I am using firefox 84.0.1; I have my home page set to bing.com

I am not smart enough to know where this stuff is coming from, but I have a lot of spam that I never want to see on my Bing homepage. Examples:

- Bing Homepage Quiz - Get the new Bing wallpaper app - Join "Give with Bing" - Male Bing yours - transform your hompage...

Does anyone know how to get rid of this bloat? Some of us have never made it to the high speed information superhighway and are still stuck on the data dirt road. Thanks

The latest outrage ? Firefox is taking up space at the top of my browser with the following : "For quick access, place your bookmarks here on the bookmarks toolbar. Manage bookmarks..."

I have no #$#$#$@ bookmarks !!! Spent over 30 minutes trying to find out how to turn off this crap. Apparently it can't be done. I'm stuck with the irritating garbage, unless I dump Firefox. Solution found ! Screw Mozilla and Firefox. They've become no better than IE or Chrome. Both of which abuse their users by forcing them to waste time undoing forced "improvements".

Dear Firefox support.

Hi, I'd like to change a default shortcut. I'd like to use Ctrl + Shift + N to open a private browser window. The default shortcut is Ctrl + Shift + P, but in every other browser it is Ctrl + Shift + N, so I'd like that also in Firefox that shortcut would be Ctrl + Shift + N. Is there a way to change it?

Thanks for the support.

I wonder if in the new release of Mozilla Firefox there is an Extension that places an "'Extension Button"' in the Toolbar that works as an Extensions Menu including a table of all Extensions, where someone can very easily pin or unpin Extension icons from the toolbar or can handle the Extensions properties.

Herewith I attach relevant Screenshots from three well-known Browsers including this future on the toolbar. (Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Opera)

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?
