Hello,

I upgraded my FireFox to the latest version 88.0 today, and noticed some changes on right click menu. In the old version, the keyboard shortcut key is a to copy a link, but now it was changed to L. That is really inconvenient. As you know, when you right click a link using the mouse, your right hand is still holding the mouse, and not easy to press the letter L on the keyboard.

The old menu option is "Copy Link Locaton", but the new one is "Copy Link".

Is it possible to customize the keyboard shortcut of right click menu, please?

Thank you! Brian

I use a MacBook Pro with MacOS 10.11 and the latest version of FireFox (72.0.2) and I'm unable to figure out how to bring up the Context menu. With previous versions of FireFox. I could hold down the Control key and click a tab and that would bring up the Context menu. But with the latest versions of FireFox, that option is no longer available.

I suppose if I bought a two-button mouse, I could bring up the Context menu with the right button, but you should be able to bring up the Context menu with the trackpad that come with Apple's MacBook Pro.

So how do you bring up the Context menu on an Apple MacBook Pro?

Thank you so much.

It seems that Firefox on Win10 does not present alternate stylesheets in local files.

See for example: https://www.w3.org/Style/Examples/007/alternatives

I have a trivial HTML file, e.g., c:\alternate_stylesheet.html, with a few of those examples of alternative stylesheets, like:

 <link rel="alternate stylesheet"
       type="text/css"
       href="http://www.w3.org/StyleSheets/Core/Steely" title=Steely>
 <link rel="alternate stylesheet"
       type="text/css"
       href="http://dbaron.org/style/forest" title="Forest (by David Baron)">

Viewing such a trivial HTML page in Firefox on Win10, the View > Page Style list is the default - just "No Style" and "Basic Page Style". The list does not include the head link alternate stylesheet options.

Why not?

IE has no trouble with these (menu View > Style presents them as expected), which seems to confirm that the trivial HTML code is correct.

Any advice?

I have been using Firefox for ages now, and collected a rather large number of bookmarks (>15,000) As far as I know such a number poses some issues, for instance I tried several times to use Sync but was never able to use it.

Since I am using two different machines, I tend to save my bookmarks only on the main one. When I am working on the laptop I never save bookmarks but I message them to myself (never been able to save them on my main machine, sigh) and every once in a while I "restore" bookmarks from the backup set of the main machine on the laptop. It always takes a while and oftentimes it feels like the process hangs, but so far I managed.

Today I started wondering again if there's a less frustrating and more efficient way to handle this. The question I started asking myself was: could I use the same FF profile from the laptop & the main machine? Say by saving it in the cloud?

Thanks for any hint or suggestion!

The one and only website that I want as my new tab is a bit laggy and takes a while to load, probably because of CloudFlare.

And I'd like to have a huge page to see all of my bookmarks in, to make it easier to organize my bookmarks. Instead of using the bookmarks sidebar or the Library window.

So I thought why not combine the two things that I want? Make my new tab open up to the Chrome bookmarks page, and then if I want that laggy website it can be one of the top bookmarks listed. Or if I want to organize and see my other bookmarks instead, I can just ignore that top bookmark and focus on the other bookmarks.

Well my New Tab URL won't let me and it is a Firefox restriction so he couldn't add the feature even if he wanted to.

But surely there is a trick or workaround that might not involve extensions?

If so, please let me know.

I want chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml as my new tab page.

The extension was changing it to http://chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml which broke it.

Hi all, I believe I remember that this function once was implemented in firefox and I used it regularly. But now I can't find it anymore:

The search results of an internet search (let's say google search results) show up in firefox one after the other. When I move my hand to the mouse and Strg + click I can open selected search results in new tabs. From the keyboard I can only use Tab to navigate from element to element - but not from search result to search result as I want.

Is there a possibility to move quickly from search result to search result? To skip all the not interesting elements? To "tab" through all these links, the maps, the ads takes ages...

Would be great if someone knew the old function in firefox at least.

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

Hi, I opened Firefox this morning and found Amazon pinned among my top sites. Weirdly enough, I can't unpin it or dismiss it - it just stays there whatever I do (in contrast to other pinned sites). It's not a huge problem, but I have some ethical issues with Amazon, so the last thing I want to see every time I open my browser is their logo. I also wonder how did it get there in the first place (I sometimes do browse the site to get an idea what are the prices of various products, but not too often and I'm not sure if there is a way to pin it by accident at all). Does anyone have the same problem?

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?

Dear Sir or Madam; I downloaded a login CSV file from the Firefox browser. The date columns format in the CSV login file is ‘1.64055E+12’. In EXCEL, 44556.79166 would translate to 2021/12/26 18:59:59. The translation of ‘1.64055E+12’ should not be the same exact date, but should be in the same date range, as the 44556.79166 number. I’m not a mathematician. Would you please show me how to convert the '1.64055E+12' value to an equivalent excel date/time number? I could then format the excel date number cells to an yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss format. These scientific number values are in the Firefox login file CSV downloads so I assume they were intended to be used in EXCEL spread sheet. These values converted to EXCEL date values would help me sort account password date change records by account name and change date. I could review sorted account records (and thus determine the current password for individual old accounts). Your solution would help me immensely and I appreciate your time.

In other 'apps' on windows 10 the tooltip is above the pointer or below it. In Firefox it is directly under the mouse. So usually any tooltip popup in firefox is unreadable, mostly. One can infer the content sometimes.

How do i change that? Or what is the problem?

I'll try and include a screenshot. Hmm, the screenshot didn't include the mouse. I think i can do a video with OBS and then a screenshot of that.

Interesting, somehow in the screenshot from the obs video it shows 2 mouse pointers. One is very small and the tooltip is just below that, but the other is larger (the one I see) and it covers the tooltip. I'm using the standard windows mouse settings for larger mouse pointers. I just tried using the 'old' mouse settings to select a larger mouse and it behaves the same way. If I select size: 1 in the new size settings, and the old settings i have 'windows system' mouse, then the tooltip is under the pointer but the size is too small for the pointer. I then changed to another mouse setting in the old selector "inverted extra large" and you can see the tooltip because of the 'inverted' nature of the pointer, but the tooltip is still partially covered by the pointer.

Ideally the choice would be to put the tooltip above the mouse pointer rather than below. When you increase the size of the mouse pointer it only increases down, not up. The point of the pointer is always at the top.

I'm going to try one more thing, increasing the size in the new settings after having selected "inverted", but i recall that it changes to the new pointer style. Ah, there is an inverted setting in the new options as well, and if i select that instead of the gray color i was using then one can read the tooltip through the mouse.

So, then my question becomes "can I put the tooltip above the mouse pointer?" Because it is still covered by the mouse pointer as is. I don't see anything in 'about:config', so far.

Thank you.
