I have been using extensions that I wrote. It was already difficult enough that I had to get them signed, but now I cannot even do that without a third party program because of "Two factor authentication". Isn't there some way to get Firefox to work the way you want it too without spending day jumping through hoops? There needs to be a way.

It used to be if firefox crashed or was killed I would get an option to recover last session that would allow me to pick the tabs and windows to recover. This is no longer the behavior as of a couple updates ago, without me changing my settings.

What happens now is the recovery never shows up, so all I have is the all-or-nothing option where you recover the whole session at once from history. No option there to pick what to recover. How do I get the old behavior back? I relied on this to prune sessions when I ended up with too many tabs.

In the instructions for moving the tool bar from the bottom to the top the instructions say: 1. Tap the menu button. Settings icon in address bar in android 2. Tap Settings. 3. Select Customize from the General section. 4. Under Toolbar, use the radio buttons to select either:

       Top
       Bottom 

STEP 3, There is no "Customize" under the "General" section.

How can I move the toolbar to the top?

I downloaded the suggested ad blocker for YouTube, then restarted Firefox. I get a 100% totally blank screen, no menu, nothing. I don't even know how to remove the ad blocker!

I could not find any articles on how to do this so after half an hour of browsing, I gave up. If you are looking at the time of this login session, I have been logged in for something under two minutes at this point.

Note that the help page for obtaining information doesn't work if Firefox simply fails to start at all.

When I open Firefox settings I can set; Firefox Home (Default), Custom URLs..., or Blank Page. I altered the Firefox Home to show a custom image per [[How to add image to my firefox home page / newtab page|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1288490]] . Now I'd like to show the Firefox Home page every time I open Firefox or open a new blank tab.

When I read the article [[How do I set a different Home page and Home button|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1341696]] the options in "about:config > browser.startup.page" are limited to "0-blank; 1-home page; 2-last visited page; 3-restore previous session", but there is no Firefox Home page in this option.

So, it seems I cannot have Firefox open to my custom Firefox Home page (and NewTab) image and have the home button open to my corporate web site. Is there another option that I can accomplish this?

(It may be "website broken" but I fear it is more this part of the problem)

Sorry folks, I know I don't help here much yet am often asking questions.

Base line: This machine Firefox Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Lots of pages/tabs open. 4 very specif tabs: 1 - this machine. 1 - RasPi #1 1 - RasPi #2 1 - RasPi #3 1 - RasPi #4

I use Node-Red on all 4 machines. So I have the tabs open on their "edit screen". I have a "dark theme" loaded - saves burning my eyes.

Until very recently things have been good. Example: Pic 1 And another part that is correct. Pic 2 All machines are running the same version of Node-Red with the same settings for how the "edit screen" is shown.

Suddenly - and alas I don't have a screen shot of one of the problems - the colour scheme is corrupt.

Example of a problem. Problem1 I can't see things until I move the mouse over them.

the other problem - which has now gone away - is the background as shown in pic2 is white.

Until today this problem didn't exist.

I am asking here as I want to check all possibilities.

SUSPICION 1: A LONG TIME ago I asked for help with the log in screen for these three remote machines. The colours were wrong and at the log in screen I was seeing text similar to how it looks in 'problem1' picture.

I adjusted the colours to something else and it helped the problem. Not exactly 100% good, but it did make the contrast better. Has that *crept into* causing this problem?

By opening a private window and logging in this is what the login screen looks like: login

Sorry I don't know how to make them appear as inline but I've named them as per how I called them here. (edit) SORRY, I see that the names were not exactly honored and they were given different names. I hope you can see what is what.

(edit 2) Ok, something else that doesn't make sense. The third of the remote machines. It's colour scheme is working fine. It is the same as the first two. RasPi. Buster. Ok 1 and 2 are V3 and 3 is V2.

BUT! Ok, saying what I just said/suspect is true: HOW did it happen? It was working for .... years. No problems. Suddenly **BANG** it happens.

Thanks in advance.

Currently, it seems to be a general key combo to use `Shift + Enter` within a search bar to open those results in a new window. However, I cannot seem to find any way to do this with a new tab. I found some old support articles about changing `browser.search.openintab` in `about:config`, but that seems to be on the browser level, not on a webpage level.

Does this functionality exist, or is this my white whale?

I was using the Firefox browser on my laptop on the floor. My little sister stepped on the far left part of my keyboard and did some sort of shortcut so now it won't show my tabs open or the search bar unless I put my cursor to the top of the screen. Also, my taskbar does not show at the bottom of my screen anymore unless I hit the window button on my keyboard. Can someone please help me put it back the way it was? Is this the right way to contact someone about this problem?

Thank you, Rachel

This is, sadly, extremely frustrating after 3 decades of happily using FF.

Brave does it right.

With all respect, why not FF?

After setting Firefox Mozilla Nightly as my default web browser on my Samsung laptop, I have been receiving an error message that Nightly is running in the background with a pop-up window that suggests closing the browser. After agreeing with the popup window nightly still will not open. My fix is to reboot my laptop at this point.

Suggestions are greatly appreciated.

On TCGPlayer.com, their "Messages," system requires you to check a confirmation box before deleting a message. Hoping I would be able to expedite the process, I checked the Firefox option to disallow the site from sending me that confirmation box and I can't figure out how to re-enable it because otherwise the page just sits there idly waiting for me to confirm.

Issue: When trying to stream video via criterion, progress spinner spins for about a minute and then the website delivers: 'Please try again in a supported browser'. Firefox delivers: 'Firefox is installing components necessary to reproduce the audio or video in this page. Try again later.'

In plug-in manager: Widevine is not enabled, receive alert: '...this will install in a few moments'. It does not actually ever install. In settings: Play content with DRM is enabled.

OS used: UBUNTU 22.04.02 LTS 64 bit
