FF keyboard shortcut "move tab to start" (ctrl + shift + home) does not work for me. I've tried using my regular FF profile (a dozen addons or so) and a VANILLA profile with no addons. The same is true for Ctrl+Shift+End shortcut.

i've also tried on two different keyboards.

so, is it me, is the documentation wrong or is this broken?

thanks

Copy text from address bar (not the URL of the current page)

Looks like this question was asked twice before with no response:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1331182

I frequently paste text into the address bar to copy it and paste somewhere else. This is very useful for a variety of reasons (e.g. speed, strips text of formatting) but for some reason a recent Firefox update makes it so if you paste text into the address bar and then copy it, you will actually have copied the current page's URL - not the intended copy.

How do we reverse this unexpected and undesirable behavior?

FF92.0, Big Sur. I really just noticed that the scroll bar on the right hand side disappears rather quickly (in just a second or two). Is there some way to make it hang around? Really pretty annoying having to make it show up by manually scrolling with a mouse wheel.

When I looked into why it was taking so long to backup my FF profile, I realized it was because their are over 21k files my backup software has to compare.

The majority of these are in the "Storage" folder -- apparently local/offline storage for various sites.

I've already moved the cache to a non-synced location using browser.cache.disk.parent_directory and would like to do the same with "Storage".

But I can't seem to find any info on what pref would allow me to do that. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi all

I would like some help if possible please. When I start Windows 10 on my laptop and I open Firefox I open two separate windows (personal and professional) and then I open a pre detirmined set of tabs in each window to start my day.

Is there a way I can press open Firefox and I can have 2 windows open with all my pre set tabs?

Is this possible? If not, how close can I come to this?

Thanks,

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?

Problem: I need to run different browsersessions with multiple tabs. I sort the websites in multiple browser windows about topics which i need for different tasks. So far no problem. I also managed, that when i close Firefox it will restart that different sessions. But - there is no need to have all them sessions open at the same time, which also costs a lot of RAM and CPU power.

My idea was to have different desktop shortcuts to start them different sessions only when i need them.

Up to now this is not common. But it seems to become a common need. A lot people work with lot's of tabs at the same time and struggle with their resources. As admin i can see that very often.

I assume, that it is possible to handle that with a script. But then i would have to change the script with every change of a single url. 

Does anyone have a simple and smart solution?

Thank you all in advance and happy new year for everybody! :-)

I have been trying some Software that the PC user can use, to change a data file so that Firefox will show only the text that the data file contains. The data files that I have been working with are .doc, .docx, and .rtl(?) and have even tried .html. But so far I haven't found a format that seems to work with Firefox. Has any body any ideas? This area that I'm working in is rather new to me, and for that reason I seem to keep going around in circles.

I just upgraded to the new release. There used to be a button with three dots toward the right side of the search/address bar. I used it to email a link to the current page. Two clicks and I'm editing the email. I don't see the button in this new release. How do I email a link to the current page? Ideally in one or two clicks.

Hi everyone,

I've enabled the Restore previous session feature (in Settings->General->Startup). All nice and good, except the fact that FF is serving pages from cache when starting up and restoring the session. I would very much like FF to refresh the pages so I can see the live content by default.

Any ideas? Maybe an about:config flag?

Thanks, Mircea.

Hello all, I regularly open up pop up windows to do my job, containing lots of column data. Until recently, the columns would squeeze down as small as they could - depending on data field and font size - meaning the bottom scroll bar was unnecessary. However, in last 1-2 weeks(?) the data columns seem happy to spread themselves out menaing I always have to scroll right to see the last few columns. Is there anything like a 'make the columns fit if they're capable of doing' command/shortcut? Thanks all.

Now, in the old Firefox, you used to be able to select "Email Link" to send a URL to someone by e-mail in your favorite e-mail client. I used to do that routinely, sending links via Thunderbird. I'm now using FF93.0, and all I see is "Share", which, when you point it to "Mail" it dumps you in Chrome. Now, in my FF prefs, I have specified Content Type->mailto->Use Thunderbird, so why it's dumping me in Chrome makes no sense.

How do I use Firefox to share a URL in Thunderbird like I used to be able to do?
