Is the Help menu the best way to submit feedback to Mozilla? Does anyone actually read it? I've submitted feedback that way before but it feels like no one saw it.

You don't even get a "sent" confirmation - all I get is a page saying something like "Your feedback will be used to improve Firefox", which doesn't confirm the feedback was sent!

I actually sent feedback about this last year, saying that the "sent" message should be clearer. But who knows if anyone saw it! LOL

firefox tab name edit: can a user name tab at will ?

right now it has LOGO and "Home" but i want it to read something like OSC-US Office of Special Counsel-Independent Agency-Home because i just do.

i have three other bookmarks for OSC: i can edit the bookmark name from "properties" but have never known whether i can also edit the name shown on a tab.

LOGO Home isn't too helpful to me. but even just knowing that i CAN'T edit tab names will be helpful to know, so i can stop thinking about it and get some sleep after another bag of chocolate-chip cookies. being an american right now is plenty stressful.

who named them "cookies" anyhow?-is it bc they kind of leave crumbs? did i win?

thank you for helping. i do appreciate it.

I hate the "This time, search with" in the URL bar. When I want to search, I use the Search bar for that. I don't need extra icons that I'm not going to use taking up space in the URL bar. I've seen it suggested that they can be removed in the Search options page. But when I've tried that, it also removes them from the Search bar.

Here's what I want: for the URL bar to only have space for a URL, no "This time, search with" nonsense, but the Search bar left completely intact, with all the search engines I use.

So I've got Proton UI forced on me today in 92.0 update and accordingly had to spend my entire evening trying to repair all of the damage. So far I've managed to fix menu spacing and the way tabs look all while not breaking previous walls of text in userChrome.css meant to fix even older UI problems. Still one thing I failed to find any solutions to is the bookmark drop-down menus color issue. Those menus used to be gray, but now they are all bright white, which to me is super annoying. Any tips on how to fully recolor those?

When I attempt to access several websites, I am prompted to turn off my ad blocker. As I have not added a third-party software or extension that does such, I assume it is part of Firefox proper. Search as I might, I cannot find any specific reference to such a thing in "Settings". SO...how can I temporarily disable the 'Ad Blocker' device that is part of Firefox? The 'TEMPORARY' part is important, as I do greatly value the function!

This has been going for a couple of days.

I have tried starting in safe mode, didn't help.

I have tried disabling JavaScript, didn't help.

Two "main sites" affected, Feedly and Gmail. Feedly had this problem but it disappeared after a while. Now Gmail is having problems. I can move around and read mails but not respond to them.

Other sites affected "seems" to have in common that they are blog-type, perhaps like WordPress or similar.

I have a Windows 10 computer with the same browser setup and there have been no problems there so far.

The version is 86.0.1 (64-bit).

I'm not technically advanced so please be gentle with me.

After using CCleaner, on opening FireFox I discovered an unwanted, 'other bookmarks' tab sitting on my toolbar. It won't move (click & drag), and I want rid of it. I like having the double right arrow at the edge of the toolbar like it use to be. When I did a full browser 'refresh', it disappeared!

However, on using CCleaner again, the darn thing reappeared.

How to I tell FireFox that I would like to be in charge of how it displayed, rather than some errant code that someone else thinks i want?

Hello, we have a CVS repository which can be browsed using viewvc. In this repository there are some .docx files which are MS Word documents. Until about one week ago, clicking on such a link brought up a dialog asking what Firefox should do with this file. One of the options is to open it with Word (see image 'ChooseWord').

But now this is no longer possible. I believe it vanished in the course of the automatic Firefox updates. Now the dialog looks like in the attached image 'NoWord'.

How can I restore the old behaviour?

Thanks, gernot

Hi All,

I am planning to get a new computer and I am wondering if I can use Sync to migrate all my numerous bookmarks and passwords over to the new PC?

Or do I need to export all this info into a file or files and then load that on my computer?

Also if I can use Sync to move all my bookmarks and passwords over... can I store this information on the hard drive of the new pc or is it stored on the cloud?

I just recently upgraded to Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) for Windows 7. Before the upgrade if I wheel clicked on a link it would open up in a new tab. Now it does absolutely nothing. I've even tried holding the wheel click for 10 seconds, still nothing.

I have verified the following settings in about:config; browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick=true middlemouse.contentLoadURL=false middlemouse.paste=false middlemouse.scrollbarPosition=false

When I was doing a search for related questions to this problem I found a user 3 years ago had a similar problem, and that they had an addition setting: middlemouse.openNewWindow=true. This setting no longer seems to be there. I have no idea if this setting was recently removed, and is the source of my problem, or if it was removed a while ago and my problem is the result of some other change. I have restarted Firefox twice, and even rebooted my laptop, in an effort to fix this problem. Nothing has worked. Depending on what I am doing I rely on using the wheel click HEAVILY, as it is much simpler to close a tab then to hit the back button 4, 10, or 20 times to return to where I started, or if I'm trying to keep track of what links I've followed from doing a search without having to re-do the search and hope I get the exact same results (with Google I never do).

At this time I am already heavily inclined to just return to the previous version of Firefox, despite how much of a pain that will be, however this is a recently released update, so I feel I should give the devs a chance to fix any new bugs from the update. That, and I won't have the time around work for several days, probably over a week, which makes it more practical to give the devs a chance to release a patch that fixes the problem.
