I am dealing with a government website. All of the government forms are available as PDFs on this website. However if I try to download a form the site looks at the browser description and does not see Adobe Acrobat installed on my system, so it returns a text document telling me to install Adobe Acrobat release 8 or higher. I cannot install Adobe Acrobat because Adobe does not support Linux. I don't need to install Adobe because Firefox, Chrome, and every other browser on the market has builtin support for PDF. How do I customize Firefox to LIE to the website and say that Adobe Acrobat is installed?

Hi, I am a bit of a panaroid person, so regarding to the permission: "access my data for all websites", does that means an add-on can make input in the background by itself?

I know my description is a bit confusing, so what I am thinking about is: whether an add-on is able to control my account on a website, changing the settings, password, and etc?

The add-on I am considering to use is uBlock Origin, I trust the developer and Firefox Recommendation, I am just worry that one day if the developer's account is hijacked, at least I can make sure it doesn't have the ability to hijack my accounts.

The Add-On feature no longer works. When I click on it in the about:addons address, it just gives a paragraph of what add-ons are and the rest is just a white, blank page. Has been working just fine (several years) until just a couple days ago. I found this out when I had to re-install a couple legacy apps due to a FF foul-up (tried to upgrade even though I refused). I still use FF 55.0.3 because that is the last version that the Tabs Groups will work with. This single feature is far more helpful to me than all the other features of FF combined, so you can see why I want to keep it.

How can I get Add-Ons to actually let me add on again?

Hey, I want to make the UI slightly larger; I have found that modifying layout.css.devPixelsPerPx in about:config works the way I need it to. However, when using multiple screens with different resolutions, the scaling no longer appears consistent between those screens. That would make sense (since it's a per-pixel configuration), but I couldn't any configuration option that only acts as a modifier for the standard scaling mechanism. I'm using macOS (10.15.7), Firefox 88.0. Attaching a screenshot taken from both screens together (not sure how macOS handles the difference in resolution when handling screenshots, there's definitely some magic going on with macOS screenshots in general; either way, it shows the problem really well).

In Google Chrome, if you fill in the first letters of a website you want to visit, the browser will autocomplete the name and give you the option to press the tab key and search that website. Why doesn't FF have this function?

I know there is a system with keywords, but this is less efficient I think. You have to set up the keyword and then remember it. I don't think the keyword system itself is bad, but I don't see why there couldn't be a 'tab to search' function with all possible websites, in addition to the keywords system.

For some reason, somehow, the console language changed to Croatian. I use both Windows and Firefox exclusively in English, but I use Croatian keyboard layout. I've never set Croatian as anything, anywhere. Please help me because I'm going mad. I really don't want to switch to Chrome... This is a big problem for me since I never use Croatian on my PCs and am lost while trying to debug my web apps.

TOP Sites on Firefox HomePage Will Not Stay or are Gone

Once again, the Top Sites that I have chosen on the the FF Home Page have shifted, or been removed. When I add them back on (and PIN) the site shortcut is there, but now I can't get the ICON that represents the Short Cut to appear and I have no idea how to find the URL for the ShortCuts, ie., the Twitter Bird that used to appear automatically, as an example.

I tried to take a Screen Shot, but the Screen Shot does not work on the FF Home Page.

Would it be too difficult to put a "Lock" button, similar to the Windows Lock for the Task Bar. PIN does NOT work.

I have not added any extensions or made any other changes that would affect this. Please advise how to correct this, and I don't want to have to follow directions that take me all over the place like go to file such and such and check such and such. That never works and usually ends up screwing up other issues. It worked once, I don't see why it doesn't work now.

Thank you for you time and I look forward to a SIMPLE solution.

I have the latest version of Firefox. The internal page colors make it impossible for me to see the text. I can change every single web page on this planet but I am unable to change the internal page colors. Surely there must be a way to change fore and background colors. Can someone offer a suggestion or better a solution??

I updated my Firefox (windows) to new version. I was running bit older version so i don't know if this options were removed when in later versions. There used to be a option in Library and in Library icon on address bar where i could go to my pocket list. Now there is no option, the only button there is to save page in pocket which was always there but no way to go and see them easily. Second option i cant find is "restart firefox with addons disabled" i used to use this to check if the problem i am having are because of some addons or what. It was very useful for me but cant seem to find it now in new version. I am running Firefox 88.0(64bit) version.

Can I change the keyboard shortcut for Responsive Design Mode which is Ctrl+Shift+M?

The fingerprints are the biggest privacy threat on the internet. Firefox has great add-ons for that, but the problem is the screen size (resolution). I have a very rare screen size, only 1% has it, so I'm always unique on the net. You can change the resolution using Responsive Design Mode, but I would like to get it faster, at least by changing the shortcut.

It would be great if someone would make an add-on for this, that is, with one click to the Responsive Design Mode.
