I have set my new tab to look like image one and I really like it but I want to have pages I use A LOT under like image two but then it gets rid of the logo and looks bad. Just to clarify I want it to look like the 3rd image. Sorry if this is a dumb question I just switched from chrome.

I have a basic html index page being served by Ubuntu/Apache at `https://localhost/test.html`. I have `browser.enabled.ssb` set to `true` in about config.

When I open a regular browser window (Firefox 78.0.2) I can navigate to, and load `https://localhost/test.html` no problem but when I run `firefox --profile /home/ubuntu/.mozilla/firefox/a5pwja44.default-release --ssb https://localhost/test.html` I get a connection error. (This is the same profile I'm using when I open a new browser window).

Anybody know why this doesn't work or how to fix?

I'd like it if Firefox would automatically convert webp images to jpg or png files instead of the opposite... stop trying to save png or jpg files as webp... and stop serving me webp images when it is optional. I understand there are websites that ONLY display webp format images, but I am also aware that jpg and png files exist on many of these websites as well. I do not want to disable the ability to display webp in the browser, but I want to turn off whatever option is currently turned on.

I'd like to go back to being able to right click, Save Image As > and end up saving a png or jpg. There have been several websites over the last few weeks that I have visited, and even if the image in the URL is named jpg or png, Firefox tries to save it as a webp. This is complicating my image saving process. I am using the Add-on named "Save webP as PNG or JPEG" which works, but slows down my saving process considerably. The Add-on does not remember the last folder I saved an image to, and adds several additional clicks to what used to be a simple process.

Is there a way in about:config to prevent Firefox from putting webp as the default file format in the Save Image As dialog box?

Suggesting that I use Internet Explorer or Edge is crazy. I'm not changing browsers.

You can demo this annoyance by trying to save this image, which is obviously supposed to be a jpg: https://media.entertainmentearth.com/assets/images/7c23e8c9a6014c57aa8f5d3e281b3834lg.jpg

The problem is spotting the start of a logical grouping in many tabs open at once in a window. I arrange them in order when researching something. So, there's 20 tabs open, 4 different categories of the subject topic. There has to be a way besides a sidebar, to signify fast which group starts where. Best case scenario would be marking the 1st tab of a group with a flag, or static pop-up - a short, 15 character-limit description to signify which group it is (like '4k', '1080p', '720p', for video resolution values). 2nd-best would be a mouse-hover message, i.e. a flag or balloon to pop-up with the 15-character description. Finally, I could color-code the 1st tab of a group, or even the text .I saw some good extensions that did these - looks like Firefox disabled them with the latest browser upgrade. Are there any cross-browser or Firefox persistent apps or add-ons that will let me mark up individual tabs, with either icons, messages, or background colors?

Hi I've read [page] and try to apply the instructions but somehow I can't get it to autocomplete to the domain I want. These work the way I want them to for example, when I type gm it autocompletes to gmail.com; when I type y it autocompletes to youtube.com. It used to never autocomplete for gmail.com but then I used the arrow key to select gmail.com from the drop menu, and hit Enter (per the instructions on the above mentioned page) and since then it autocompletes to gmail.com. So that worked as intended. But when I type ik it autocompletes to ikea.com while I want it to autocomplete to ikea.nl. The latter does show up in the drop menu and no matter how often I use the arrow key to select it and press enter, it still keeps autocompleting in the address bar to ikea.com. Am I missing a crucial step?

Thank you

edit: I've tried deleting ikea.com with Shift Delete, but it keeps coming back after I've closed the tab/browser

Hi! Chrome based browsers (like chromium or Vivaldi) permit to obtain 96KHz or even 192KHz float 32bit audio output. Firefox stuck at float32le 48KHz. This is not sufficient for me. i have a Linux LinuxMint 20 on a STRIX Z270G audio chip @ 96KHz and headsets like Sennheiser HD650 and GRADO RS1e so able to perfectly perceive the effects of harmonics up to frequency my chip can produce (96KHz band pass).

Question: Is possible in Firefox 78 for Linux to change the max frequency from 48KHz to 96KHz maintaining the float32le setup?

Thank you to all advices!

When I upgraded to Windows 10, my default browser was reset. I've followed the simple Firefox instructions to reset my default browser to Firefox, but have been unsuccessful. That is because Firefox does not appear on the list of browser options that the Firefox instructions show will appear when I click on Microsoft Edge. Internet Explorer is there, and one other besides MS Edge, but no Firefox. How can I set Firefox as my default browser? This is getting aggravating. Thanks!

Strava - WebSite - Login - FirefoxCP Web Content using up the RAM

Recently the strava web site login page started using up all the RAM (8GB in total, typically 3-4GB free) on my MAC (OS Mojave) when using Firefox (78.0.2 (64-bit).

FirefoxCP Web Content is the app using up the RAM/Resources.

I suspect this is due to all the trackers strava.com is running and I have firefox setup with 'Enhanced Tracking Protection: Always On'

Blocking Cookies - Cross site and media trackers tracking content - in all windows cryptominers fingerprinters

I always run the Facebook Container.

Note, this problem started about 10-12 days ago, before the garmin ransomware (fwiw).

Note, I don't have any issues with the strava.com/login page consuming resources when using Chrome with Privacy Badger and Adblock Plus.

This is just an FYI - since unsure if it is just a 'my machine' issue. Not ready to test in Firefox without all the enhanced protection yet...

I just made the mistake of upgrading Firefox to disable another annoyance that couldn't just simply be toggled in the prior version where it was introduced like it is now. In doing so, it removed the ability to move the Tabs below the Address Bar via userChrome.CSS. What worked previously does not work now. Unfortunately, I forgot this would happen. I feel pretty stupid for that.

How do I get the Tabs placed below the Address Bar this time around?

I spend 12+ hours a day in front of a computer and blank pages hurt my eyes. I use dark mode wherever possible.

I've changed the background color of about:blank already and it works as I expected.

However, when a request is fired to load a web page, there's a quick transition which may paint the canvas totally blank before starting rendering the requested page. Since this transition may take a couple of seconds sometimes in my environment, the screen flashes blank onto my face, really hurting my eyes used to most of things dark most of the time.

Is there a way to configure the color of this transitioning blank page, please?

Thanks a lot in advance. :-)
