System : Linux Mint 20.2 FireFox : 91.0.1 (64-bit)

Plugins/extensions "Hoxx VPN" and "SetupVPN" seems not to work anymore This is since FireFox 91.0.1 It takes a long time (about 30sec) connecting to the VPN, with no result. (no connection)

Both say something like : Result

<country> (SERVERS) 3.11.4 In some cases VPN extensions are not enough to bypass the firewall in your network. Extensions have only limited permissions on your computer and have limited capabilities.

We highly recommend to download our desktop client. It uses a very sophisticated VPN software and can bypass most of the firewalls.

I want to increase the font size for the tabs and bookmarks ONLY

I'm a web designer, trying to move away from Chrome because of privacy/security issues. I'm also 63 years old. My eyes are old. The text size on the tabs and bookmarks is very difficult to read. I don't want to increase the size of everything else - ***just the tab and bookmark text***. I've tried the fix seen elsewhere in the community for this question, but that doesn't change the size at all. If I increase the size, say by Zoom, that's a problem with my page layout. Can anyone help, please?

I'm on a Mac, but using an LG monitor, so no Retina display.

STOP forcing browser/plugin/extensions to run: Google, Bing, Amazon, DuckDuckGo, eBay, Wikipedia, and whatever else you are forcing down our throats

Several people have complained and NOBODY is listening. I specifically switched to FF so I don't have to deal with intrusive sites. FF I thought claimed to be UNLIKE GOOGLE and was more "private," so why are you putting in a Google browser/plugin/extension and forcing it to run on our PC's? I have enough crap on it taking up MEMORY and slowing it down, don't force anything people do NOT want. Just because these might be popular with many does NOT mean everybody wants it. Get rid of Google, Bing, Amazon, DuckDuckGo, eBay, Wikipedia, and WHATEVER else you are forcing us to run on FF.

Does FF have an agreement or partnering with these companies to TRACK US where ever we go on the internet? Looks like it. Per Wikipedia: DuckDuckGo earns revenue by serving ads from the Yahoo-Bing search alliance network and through affiliate relationships with Amazon and eBay. OK, so we have 4 of those And this at https://www.comparitech.com/blog/vpn-privacy/best-private-search-engine: DuckDuckGo displays ads for affiliate sites in the right sidebar, which is a little less aggressive than Google which presents ads at the top of search results. It earns additional profits from commissions from sites like Amazon and eBay, so you may want to be wary if those pop up a lot in search results. Also: As DuckDuckGo’s CEO, Gabriel Weinberg, explains in a Quora answer, the search engine does use your IP address to serve local results.

Why is FF pushing these sites when many of us do NOT use them nor want them? Why don't you add them as extensions where you can CHOOSE it if you wish? I found instructions on how to delete them in the FF File Explorer folder because merely deleting them in Settings does NOT remove them permanently as FF has them "hidden," however, they just come back and it messed up other add-ons. ALSO, these add-on's you are forcing on us is TAKING SPACE on my PC and I resent that.

I do NOT want to HIDE THEM, I want them REMOVED PERMANENTLY.

I want to use discord in firefox instead of using the pc-program. It appears that my firefox.cfg has some preferences that block discord from gaining microphone access. I never used multiple firefox profiles but that changed now, i created a firefox profile for discord purpose only. However my firefox.cfg is active in both the default and the discord profile, again blocking microphone access.

As i said currently i use firefox.cfg and autoconfig.js to customize firefox preferences, but since this makes it impossible for me to use discord i will have to find another way to modify firefox, so the question is how can i use multiple firefox profiles with different preferences? Can this be done with a user.js file? After all what is the difference between using firefox.cfg and user.js?
