I use an addon to mute all tabs by default. The problem is that muted tabs have the MUTED text, which shrinks the size of the tab name/title. My old eyes can't deal with that very well.

Is there any way to prevent this text from showing up globally? Thanks.

Title says it all pretty much. I have text cursor indicator turned completely off on windows, so that's why I'm wondering why Firefox does it when I never enabled something like it. I have the ctrl+pgup and ctrl+pgdown button combos binded to my extra mouse buttons, and I use them very frequently, so this starts to become really annoying really quickly. Especially if I've somehow accidentally 'selected' something on youtube or such, and then it displays a big blue blob out of nowhere. I don't know if this is a purposeful feature or what, but I would appreciate it if somebody could tell me how to disable it, it's extremely irritating.

I started up my computer today; I tried to open up a youtube video in picture-in-picture add-on, but it wasn't there. I restarted my computer, completely closed firefox, looked into settings for the picture-in-picture settings that are supposed to be under 'Browsing' in General but I can't find the settings for it there either. I have tried using other video sites, but nothing works.

Win 7 Home Premium Firefox Version 101.0.1

'Privacy & Security'->'Cookies and Site Data', 'Clear Data.'

When 'Clear Now,' Cached Web Content; is clicked, it does not zero out. (It used to clear completely).

The browser webpage has been refreshed, the browser closed and reopened, and the computer restarted but the cache does not reset.

This issue started on the morning (Pacific time) of June 26-Is this a known glitch or am I missing a detail?

Why are google sites (Youtube, Gmail and Search) getting disconnected when all other sites are still connected to the Net? This has been happening since November 2021.

When that happens I close the FF and then immediately open it. Now the google sites work properly.

Never had that problem with other sites.....never!

Why the hell is this happening? Is FF responsible or Google?

So what is the solution?

Just recently, I've been having problems with websites run by Cloudflare. Whenever I attempt to access ANY website that is operated by Cloudflare, I'm often presented with a blank page, or a Firefox error message. Sometimes I'm even presented with the DDoS protection error, even though my computer is clean having being scanned by Kaspersky and Malware Bytes.

I reiterate this and say that it's only Cloudflare sites that are causing problems. Very occasionally they will work for up to an hour or so but most of the time it is error messages or blank pages. Interestingly, other web servers such as Amazon, OVH SAS and Akamai all run with no problems so I wonder what is Cloudflare's problem? Is this something to do with my browser or the web hosting services?

For awhile now whenever I visit Kickstarter, I never get the full page to load. I mainly notice it in the header where the info for the campaign information doesn't show on Firefox. I've tried playing around with my widgets and protection to see if that would allow the page to fully load, but nothing has worked.

Hello. I just created a master password to protect my website passwords. However, this master password is required to start a session with Firefox. My suggestion is that you do not require the master password to start a Firefox session, only to access the passwords information, or to create and remember a login password for a new website. It is a hassle to enter the master password every time I want to use Firefox. Or should I keep firefox open the entire day?

I have multiple google accounts, one is for work which requires VPN login and an extra password. When I type calendar or Gmail into the address bar, it takes me directly to this account. Switching to my personal account requires me to log in to a VPN, do DFA, then switch accounts. How can I ask Firefox to log in to my personal account first instead?

Thanks!

I know there's [[an article|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/sync-custom-preferences#w_sync-custom-preferences]] on how to sync custom preferences. I wanted to sync my toolbar customizations and some other preferences like disabling disk caching. And I don't even have other firefox instances, instead I just want to sync only on one device, so that I can continue the same setup when I signin later on the same device.

I've tried to add services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.uiCustomization.state, "services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.cache.disk.enable" and set it to true. But it doesn't work. What am I missing? No one seems to address this. May I am missing something.
