I use `Always ask you where to save files` when download and every time I download something they're always in different places.

The problem is if I rename the file when I forget to rename it before I press the download, Firefox says the file is missing and refuses to tell me where did I save that file. The `Open Contained Folder` is greyed out and I can't find any location related text.

How can I find where did I download my files?

And why `Open Contained Folder` has to be greyed out?

Hi, I have recently discovered that I cannot save all images via the above route. Might this have something to do with an update? This feature is very useful when you are working with some technical sites that have images of interest. Instead of save the images one by one, or use additional unnecessary addons that may or may not work, I could select all images, point to a subfolder and say 'Open.' This has stopped working. My currecnt version is Firefox 84.0.2, 64-bit, on Linux. Any ideas/solutions on how to get this feature back would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

This is a tricky one to explain....

Firefox used to zoom the 'content' of webpages...make the icons, pictures and text larger and rearrange things on the page to accomodate the magnified items. For example on the home page the icons for my favouraite pages would 'grow' when I zoomed in and then display less of them on the page when they were too big.

I liked this type of zooming.

However, on a recent reinstallation of firefox 'zooming in' has changed. Now when I zoom it simply magnifies the entire page page, uniformly.

Hope this makes sense to somebody who can help me get back to my original way of zooming.

How to switch quickly between Firefox windows of different profiles using hotkeys on Mac

Hi!

I have two Firefox windows open. One is of my 'Personal' profile and the other is of my 'Work' profile. (Both set in 'about:profiles'). I would like to switch between the two using hotkeys.

While I'm able to switch between Firefox windows of the same profile using the default "Cmd + ` ", it's not working between windows of different profiles. "Alt + tab" works of course but that's slow if I haven't activated one of my profiles (window) for a while.

If there isn't a native solution, I'd also be interested in hearing about Lua + "Karabiner-elements" workarounds if you are familiar with them.

Thanks!

Setting background color in the "appearance" section has no effect for me.

I just updated Firefox to the newest version. I'm a little miffed though that I can't seem to get rid of the "overflow menu" or otherwise hide it. I like a VERY minimalist setup to maximize web page view. On previous versions you could remove all add-ons/menu buttons and the extra space or "overflow menu would disappear. Now that doesn't seem to be the case. So now I have this annoying blank space I don't need. Otherwise I love the look of the new update. Just this is a bit confounding.

Firefox updated to 89.0 today, and my newtabpage looks odd. The shortcuts now have really small previews, as shown in the attached image. How do I get them to be full size again (i.e. fill the box)? It was easier to tell them apart at a glance before the update, post update there's too much empty space. Is there something in about:config that controls this?

Thanks in advance!

I cannot find anyway in Firefox, or from searching how to create a desktop shortcut/link of a site I have added as an App after enabling ssb mode. Is it even possible?

I've spent quite a bit of time trying to re-create a userChrome.css file to simulate the App mode, however minimal success only. The best I could gets getting the site I want to launch with no tabs/address bar/title bar which is not desirable as it is missing the Title Bar of the website name, which also is useful for moving the window/app around my desktop. For trying to launch that, I am running it from command line using triggers for an alternate profile withe the customer userChrome.css

user@pop: firefox -P app -new-instance http://www.wolframalpha.com

Is there any way built in to create a desktop link to open a site I added as an app? If not is there any other method that I can use to launch the site, either in my default profile, or a specific profile with a custom userChrome.css file that would have a Titlebar window same as when I manually launch the site in app mode?

What I want to have, is a shortcut on my desktop to launch the window on the right of the attached screenshot without manually having to open Firefox -> Hamburger Menu -> Sites in App Mode -> <selecting site>

I'm using Ubuntu/PopOS 20 with latest version of Firefox Any help would be great. Thanks

Hi,

Using FF 91, I'm unable to remove autocomplete entries in the url field. I'm following the instructions from this page:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1300485

and the KB entry on which this page is based: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Deleting_autocomplete_entries

On a Windows 10 PC, I've tried using both the Delete key and the Shift+Delete but the entry I'm trying to get rid of keeps coming back. I also removed all cookies associated with this url.

Would greatly appreciate your help.
