How do I remove Colorways completely? I don't use it and it's a waste of space. I used to have more control of features in Firefox. Now you're putting themes I can't delete? Firefox is really starting to suck! No wonder everyone is leaving for Chrome. I'm about to be one of those leaving Firefox.

After the last update to Firefox on my Mac Book Pro running Mac-OS Monterey, I was offered an update to Ad Block Plus. This add-on, AdBlocker Ultimate shows as installed but it won't run at all and shows as disabled and my existing AdBlock Plus quits working. I'm using Adblock Plus on my windows based computers with all synced together with the Mac Book and the Windows computers are OK, but not the Mac Book. Is there any way to get my Mac Book working correctly? In addition the last update to Firefox on the Mac Book opens by offering me "Life in Color" every time it starts up. How long do I have to tell it I'm not interested? Thanks for your help.

The first pic was copied from the screenshot and there is no fixed menu in the middle. ![screenshot copy button|406x500](upload://jc4cVdQpcK9yLRqWanmjirPbHbE.png)

Second pic using download button. There is some annoying fixed top menu appearing in the middle which blocks some of the content. ![screenshot download button2 .png|317x500](upload://mBzxui56Jznz5dxyAM71eP9TxrQ.jpeg)

Please make some download shortcut buttons or make Copy&Download&Cancel buttons float at the top.

Thank you

This is disgusting. This is not the first time this has happened. I support you financially and you are giving me a crap in my life.

I am TOTALLY disappointed in you.

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?

I want to completely disable the 'restore previous session' option.

I want to start a new session with my preset home pages 100% of the time.

Having Firefox display a page 'unable to restore previous session' with the options of 'display previous' pages and 'start new session' is inconvenient at best. I do not want to see that page, I just want Firefox to automatically start a new session every time I open it.

In the Tools menu settings tab, the 'Restore previous session' checkbox is not checked.

I really need a good option for my FVD speed dial. After using it for years it has suddenly been deemed as dangerous. After using it for years, I never had a problem with it being "dangerous". But anyway, I really need a good alternative but the one Firefox recommended is no good. It has a list of options you can pick from but they all say they are not monitoring these speed dials. I wonder if any of those are dangerous.
