I just installed Firefox 29.01 and the text labels on my toolbar have disappeared and there doesnt seem to be a way to put them back. How do I do this?

MY QUESTION IS EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE USER BELOW ASKED (WHICH I HAVE PASTED BELOW), AND HE GOT A STANDARD (AND USELESS) RHETORICAL ANSWER FROM THE SUPPORT STAFF. PLEASE LOOK AT THE SPECIFIC QUESTION ASKED AND DO NOT ANSWER WITH A GENERIC ANSWER LIKE "THIS IS HOW TO ACCESS THE CUSTOMIZATION SCREEN" BECAUSE I FOUND THE CUSTOMIZATION SCREEN WITHOUT HAVING TO ASK AND THAT SCREEN DOES NOT SHOW HOW TO TURN ON THE FEATURE I NEED! DO YOU WONDER WHY I USE ALL CAPS? IF YOU READ THE ACTUAL QUESTION WHEN IT WAS WRITTEN IN LOWER CASE, I WOULDN'T NEED TO USE ALL CAPS!

Last night I updated to Firefox 29.0.1. Now, I don't mind change - and I don't mind redesigns - but I HATE it when options are removed. I want text labels on my buttons (the "Home" button for example"). In the previous version of Firefox you could right-click in the grey space at the top, and select "customise". From there, you could drag and drop which things you wanted to appear in your toolbar or not - and there was a tickbox to selext if you wanted text labels to appear underneath them or not. Now as hard as I look, I can't find this option. It looks like you're now forcing people to ONLY use icons. I hate that. My brain processes the word "Home" a lot faster than it recognises a little picture of a house. You need to understand that people work in different ways - and just because the Firefox developers might not personally use the text labels, that doesn't mean that no-one does!

I need to continue to use an application (Web Site) built with Flash Player for the first 3 months of 2021. Flash Player support ends on December 31st 2020. What is the plan at Mozilla in terms of restricting access to Flash Player in 2021? - For example, is there a timebomb in the browser so that Flash Player will seize to work on December 31st? - If not, would Flash Player become inaccessible following the first browser update in 2021? If yes, do we know when date is scheduled for approximately? - Will the behavior be the same for all Firefox versions (Light, Enterprise, iOS, Android, etc..). Thank you!

Did Firefox 74 introduce a minimum windows size? Can it be disabled?

Hi,

I like to work with side-by-side Firefox windows, with one of the windows being far slimmer (horizontally) than the other. Since I updated to Firefox 74.0 today, I can't resize the windows as I like to do. I can resize them, but it's like there's a minimum fixed size to what I can resize it to and then it locks and doesn't go any slimmer from there (maybe so the browser controls don't overlap?). That fixed size is far too big for my use case, i.e. I absolutely need it slimmer. I'm not entirely sure if the previous Firefox version contained a fixed minimum size, but if it did, it was much smaller (it allowed controls to overlap, which wasn't a problem for me)

Is there a setting that I can change in Firefox 74 so that I can make the windows as slim as I require again?

How to force focus last focused HTML input element when going back in history with backspace?

SUMMARY: I am a Firefox user with HTML knowledge. I want to be able to configure Firefox to behave in a special manner when I hit backspace. It's something that Firefox already does, BUT NOT ALWAYS. I don't know why it behaves differently in different situations for no apparent reason. I want to be able to configure firefox to ALWAYS behave in the manner I want to. Read below for the precise description.

When I fill a FORM in a page, wether POST or GET, and press ENTER, it obviously acts as expected: submits the data and brings me to a new page. When I get to the new page, and I press BACKSPACE, Firefox behaves in sometimes like TYPE 1 and sometimes like TYPE 2 (see below), and I can't predict which one he will choose. I want to be able to configure it to behave ALWAYS like TYPE 2.

TYPE 1 - Firefox reloads the previous page, as if I just entered it for the first time.

TYPE 2 - Firefox brings me back to the exact same page view I had before pressing ENTER to submit the FORM. 2.1 - It doesn't reload the page; 2.2 - It places the page in the same scrolled position I was before (for example, if I scrolled to the bottom of the page to fill the FORM and press enter, after pressing backspace it brings me to the bottom of the page again; 2.3 - It automatically focus the HTML input element I last typed (the element that was focused at the very moment I pressed ENTER to submit the FORM).

So, I want to be able to configure Firefox for it to ALWAYS BEHAVE LIKE TYPE 2 whenever I fill a HTML FORM, press ENTER and press backspace after going to the new page. All three details I gave are important. Remember that I've already experienced TYPE 2 in previous versions of Firefox, I just wish to FORCE IT to behave like that ALWAYS (because for no apparent reason, sometimes it behaves like TYPE 1 instead).

Please let me know if that's possible, and if not, I would really THANK YOU ALL FOREVER if you add this feature to the next version.

I do not use the majority of keyboard controls in Firefox-- only Ctrl+F. Lately, I've noticed that using Ctrl+I in editor windows also pops up the Page Info window, which I have never used on purpose and am perfectly comfortable accessing via Firefox's menubar.

I have been searching for over an hour, and every Firefox add-on that I can find to fix this problem has been removed.

Ideally, I would like to be able to configure all of my keyboard shortcuts, but practically I will settle for being able to disable Ctrl-B, Ctrl-I, and Ctrl-U.

Hi,

I'd like to distribute Firefox with some pre-installed preferences (including Adblock Plus settings) in my organization.

Fallowing preferences setup via prefs.js don't work:

   pref("extensions.adblockplus.data_directory", "\\\\" + getenv("USERDNSDOMAIN") + "\\App\\Firefox\\ESR\\adblockplus\\data\\")
   pref("extensions.adblockplus.patternsfile", "\\\\" + getenv("USERDNSDOMAIN") + "\\App\\Firefox\\ESR\\adblockplus\\patterns.ini");


Is Firefox allowing to use USERDNSDOMAIN or USERDOMAIN varibles in prefs.js? Is this syntax OK? Could someone help me to figure why it is not working?

I used to use Theme & Font Size Changer and was able to change the fonts to large and bold so I could read them. Now it doesn't work because of Firefox "upgrades". There really should be an easier way to change fonts, both sizes and colors, because not everyone is 20 years old with great eyesight. Is there a fairly easy way to do this? I'll even take a not-so-easy way if it works.

BTW, I've used "Firefox Colors" and it does make it a bit easier, but I really need to be able to increase the size of the text AND bold it.
