My employer sent me a link to sign up for an employment planning service. I need to enter my name, DOB and their entry code. The second line is being blocked and I cannot type in it. I need to type their entry code on this line. I have attached a copy of the screenshot. I am not sure what the Mask limit is for this line as it is not a line that I am typing my email address in.

I need HELP!

before the update, i was using a custom theme, and it behaved similarly to the normal dark theme. as in, when i opened a new tab, it was dark, and stuff like that. now that firefox has crashed and i've had the update involuntarily forced upon me, i'm still using the custom theme, but now it behaves as the light theme. is there any way to fix this? i don't appreciate being blinded whenever i open a new tab or adjust my settings.

Now on Firefox 100.0.1 On earlier versions of Firefox I was able to set a particular url for my home(opening) page. That is still true. However, on past versions I was also able to make *my home page* appear on every tab I opened. On the current edition I get a choice of only Firefox Home Page (default) or Blank page. I cannot get my home page on the new tab. How can I bypass the restrictions of the settings under Home to get my home page on every tab?

That the question I need an answer to. Everything below this is explanation of why I want this and a complaint about how Firefox changes things that I would appreciate being passed on to the developers.

                                                                    <---------------------->

If I choose Firefox Home Page (default), I am *forced* to use the address box to put in my search terms. I have become accustomed to the various search engines with their splash screens - with the nice big search box in the middle of the screen (both horizontally and vertically). It is absolutely unnerving to me to try to type in the box in the middle and have nothing show up there but up above in the address box.

I am a project person in a multi-tasking world, which means whether I like it or not, I have to multitask too. For me to do this successfully, all my tools need to be where I expect and perform as I expect them. Even putting duckduckgo.com in the current home page/new window setting, doesn't get the duckduckgo splash page, but even though I'm not that technically advanced, I found a way of getting it in my home page window. However, the tabs section doesn't offer me an opportunity to put my own choice in.

I wish Firefox would stop tinkering with otherwise minor things. I understand fixing found vulnerabilities. I understand providing new services and technology when they're developed. But why force people to use search and tabs the way Firefox wants them to rather than the way the user is accustomed to.

whenever I try to use a theme that defaulted to dark mode in the previous update, it defaults to light mode instead. for some websites this means that it displays in bright white. i need dark mode. even when i set the toolbar colour (which previously controlled dark/light in Firefox Colour) to black it's on light mode. how do I get dark mode back, i hate this. this theme (picture attached) used to be dark mode but now it defaults to light. how do i get dark mode back.

This annoying notification on the bottom right keeps popping up everytime I take a screenshot. I've been using computers for the past 17 years, I know how to paste things by now. Even worse, it overlays on other applications and pesters me there for about 10 seconds until I close it. Can this notification be hidden in about config or do I have to find a community add on that does the same thing, but without this stupid notification?

Updating to version 98.0 onwards Firefox has started saving a copy of every pdf file I view (open) in my downloads folder.

My settings have not changed:

Tools->Settings->General->Applications: - pdf (application/download): Always ask - pdf (application/force-download): Always ask - pdf (application/pdf): Use Adobe Acrobat DC - pdf (application/x-download): Always ask

And when the "ask" dialog pops up, I choose "open".

I have tried all standard methods/troubleshooting, including resetting the handlers.json file.

The only way to avoid getting a copy in the downloads folder is if I choose "Open in Firefox" (application/pdf) instead of "Use Adobe Acrobat DC".

Any solution to this?

Thanks Michael

Running Firefox 100.0 on Linux Mint 20.3 Mate 1.26 I've noticed that websites like my bank use a "sub window" that slides in from the right to display the running balances. Prior to version 100, this worked perfectly with dual scroll bars, one for the main window and one for the "sub" window. Now, with version 100, the "sub" window has no scroll bar. I can control the window by using the keyboard up/down arrows, but the scroll bar for the "sub" window is non existent. You cannot have access to my bank account, but you can duplicate the problem with Google. Simply search for say, a celebrity, click on one of the displayed images, and the window that displays on the right used to have it's own scroll bar, beside the bar that controlled the main window. Sub window scroll bar is now gone. It seems you folks violated one of the Cardinal Sins of Programming: IF IT AIN'T BROKE, DON'T FIX IT. Scroll bars worked great before, Not sure whose idea it was to "improve" them. Rolling a Firefox update backwards is a logistical nightmare. Is there a possibility of a fix coming out soon or are we to live with this as a "feature"??? Thanks for your time.

Posting on behalf of a user who hit the VPN inbound queue with a question better suited for this forum:

The tab bar, toolbar, and address bar placement in my Firefox Desktop browser has recently changed. I have been trying to revert these recent changes as they interrupt my current workflows.

I DO know which prior profile save contains the desired info however, it contains many files and I DO NOT KNOW which files I need for the bars to be restored. If you could provide me the name(s) of the file(s) that holds the bars data, I am probably saved, hopefully saved.

if there's not already an option to autohide the bookmarks toolbar (like the address bar and tabs when in F11 mode [fullscreen])

can there be?

so like, on default the bookmark toolbar wouldn't show, but when I move my mouse into the specified area it appears (with the same animation as f11 mode)

 thank you,

let me know if i can already do that and if I'm just dumb.

 just to be clear, I want the tabs and url/address bar and tabs to always be there.

Actually might be cool to have options to autohide the tab bar too (separately).

 thanks again,

graham

Lately, Firefox unchecks the 'use autoscrolling' and 'play DRM-controlled content' options sometimes (but not every time) when it starts. Other settings don't seem to be affected. It does seem to unset both at once, never one or the other at a time.

I have begun using Firefox routinely on two computers, both signed into the same sync profile. My best guess is that maybe one profile is overwriting the other? Both of these options are set on the second system, but maybe there's something going wrong with the sync?

Thanks, Patrick

I have installed IBM Security Trusteer Rapport to my recent Lenova laptop..

But I cannot seem to be able to, or be allowed to, add IBM Security Trusteer Rapport to my Firefox browser (100.0.1 version) but it appears immediately in my Edge browser next to the address box. I have used Firefox for many years and it is my default browser.

My bank (Santander UK) strongly recommend this addon as it provides encryption protection.

Has Moxilla barred it from Firefox but if not, how can it be added? There is no way I can see to add Santander UK (or any other UK bank) manually to Rapports list of protected bank sites.

Any clarity on this would be most appreciated. Hector Currie

Hi! I have set this option pdfjs.externalLinkTarget to 2, but despite that setup, all PDFs are open in the same tab of the PDF download link, that's a problem for me because, for instance, my home banking account losses the session if anything external is loaded, so when I click Firefox back arrow, the home banking session expires.

How can I set to open PDFs in Firefox in new tab?

Thanks!

Hi, I'd like to disable that annoying animation when going to fullscreen (by hitting F11). Supposedly, setting the following should work:

Go to about:config

Set: full-screen-api.transition-duration.enter 0 0 full-screen-api.transition-duration.leave 0 0 full-screen-api.transition.timeout 0 full-screen-api.warning.delay 0 full-screen-api.warning.timeout 0

Restart

However, this does not have any effect in Firefox 94.0 on Ubuntu. Is this a bug/regression? Or is there some other way to disable the animation?
