At every firefox new updates, firefox insists on restoring extensions that I have disabled/uninstalled because they are completely useless to me and I don't want to use. Enforced Useless Extensions: Amazon.com, Amazon.com.au, Bing, Google, Twitter, OpenH264

There is also a common secret: After a new firefox update, I must dig to empty the "features folder" (C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\browser\features) which keeps also Useless "Features" like: Enforced Useless Features: doh-rollout@mozilla.org.xpi, formautofill@mozilla.org.xpi, screenshots@mozilla.org.xpi, webcompat@mozilla.org.xpi, webcompat-reporter@mozilla.org.xpi

So, Why does Firefox insist so much on reinstalling unnecessary, useless disabled/uninstalled extensions and "features"?

Voice Search like Chrome. I saw the answer that was archived 2 years ago and the link takes me to a VPN, that I can only sign up for in the US.

So, is there any development for voice searching like what google chrome has?

Just curious.

I'm wondering how to configure a default zoom level for all users.

I want

about:preferences -> Default zoom

to have a default value of 133% instead of 100%.

So far I'm using the files

firefox/distribution/distribution.ini

and

firefox/browser/defaults/preferences/all-XXX.js

for configuration, but I don't know which keyword to use. I compared the content-prefs.sqlite file between to test profiles, one having 100% default zoom, the other having 133% default zoom.

The database says there is a setting "browser.content.full-zoom", but I can't configure this with the *.ini or *.js file, or can I?


I also read this:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Preferences/A_brief_guide_to_Mozilla_preferences

but it didn't help.

I am trying to add my own background to the home page but cannot find any way to do it. There must be an option for something so simple somewhere, but I cannot find it. I do not want to install an add-on for this as I am not comfortable handing out my personal info to some random guy or group to accomplish something so simple. Thanks.

Dark theme on about:home page will not hold; "protected by browser"?

For years, the dark theme I used would apply to all pages, including about:newtab and about:home. About a month ago, this stopped happening, and regardless of choosing a theme that turns the background of the about:home page dark, it reverts to a white background the next time the browser is started.

I also use an add-on called Dark Reader, which gives me some control over the background of most websites. This extension is where the information that the about:home page is "protected by browser". I have not tried disabling Dark Reader, yet.

On the Firefox Options page, under the Home tab, under New Windows and Tabs, the options for "New tabs" include only two (2) choices: Firefox Home (default), or Blank Page. The dark background works (i.e., sticks, holds, stays) on the blank page, but does not work for the Firefox Home (default), which is what I have chosen and prefer. I choose only Top Sites on the Firefox Home Content settings, which are displayed below the "New tabs" settings described above.

Any help in restoring the dark (or consistent theme color) to the Firefox Home or about:home page will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Firefox 76.0.1 on Mac OS X 10.15.4.

Simply put, I have the 'Restore previous session' checkbox ticked under Preferences -> General -> Startup, but each time I close and start Firefox, I get a new window. I checked 'browser.startup.page' property in about:config. It is in bold and set to 3. I also verified that it is set to 3 in prefs.json in my profile directory.

This is really hampering my workflow.

EDIT: This post can be deleted. Apparently I'm new to Mac and did not know that clicking the red button will not quit the application. I hate it already.

After a full review of all Mozilla's addon troubleshooting pages, the addons I use everyday either don't appear upon my use of a mouse right click or don't work when clicking on them in the browser's header bar, and I haven't downloaded the new Firefox version for GREAT fear of AGAIN loosing ALL of my addons for the second time. And not being able to use my lost addons have crippled my production, because their replacement have not been nearly as good.

To remove an addon was easy, but reinstalling it won't fully engage even when the page popped up and gave me the option to install it. It's just spinning.

I imagine we're not talking about a sudden incompatability without an upgrade. Your help is welcome.

hello,

What's a pity with this video overlay option is that the subtitle does not accompany the overlay but remains in the original page.

What would be interesting is to have the subtitle accompanying the detached window.

Do you think it's feasible to recover both the video and the subtitle in the main window?

Hello, I use a smartcard (US Govt CAC) to authenticate to websites. Often I have to check the status of the PKCS#11 module in the Security Devices Dialog under Security & Privacy Tab. Is there a hot key or customizable feature to allow me to directly bring that dialog up directly?
