Hi there!

My Firefox crashed for some reason and I decided to re-install it. Prior to re-installing I had an older theme from older versions of Firefox installed. It was the pink one of the themes you could choose from the "Application menu" (literal translation from German, the system language I'm using). With the new version installed, I somehow cannot find the old themes anymore. I was wondering if there could be any way of using the old themes in the new version? Thank you for your time in reading this request.

Sincerely, Nikola

Seems as if Firefox is updating every other day lately. I have Dashlane on my tool bar, and it seems to freeze/disable after every update. When I open Dashlane separately in the browser and log in, it congratulates me on installing it on a new device. What is Firefox changing with its updates that makes my computer look different to Dashlane? I cannot find the Dashlane version running but I do have it on automatically update.

When I start typing URL's in Firefox, it will only ever suggest the URL so far as the top level domain. For instance, I frequently visit trakt.tv/dashboard. But when I type "tr" into the URL bar, Firefox only ever suggests trakt.tv - I have to manually press the forward arrow key and type in "/d" in order for it to autofill the rest. It doesn't matter how many time I type the full URL in or even the fact that I've deleted all history only visited trakt.tv/dashboard, Firefox will still only autofill trakt.tv

Is there some about:config setting I can change to make Firefox recognize and prioritize specific frequently visited URL's over just top level domains?

I haven't used my microphone in Firefox in years. I tried today, logged into Google Voice, which tells me it can't access the microphone. I set permissions in Firefox's settings. I turned up all the mic settings in alsamixer. I tried https://mdn.github.io/web-dictaphone/ , recommended in another thread here, and it doesn't record either. I can use the microphone outside X, with sox's rec. I also can't record a new greeting in Google Voice.

Firefox 100.0.2 , Linux, Slackware 64-bit, all packages updated this morning.

Firefox offers the option to "Fill login" through the context menu (see attached image) when ever in a login or password field. However I am using Bitwarden instead of the Firefox password manager and disabled saving passwords in Firefox. Is there a way to remove this "Fill login" action as it always just shows that no logins are saved?

Thanks, Mattias

CTRL + W is the keyboard shortcut to close the active tab. This works fine if the tab isn't pinned, but if I press CTRL + W on a pinned tab, it just cycles to the next tab. This isn't ideal. The shortcut should close the tab regardless of whether it is pinned (as it does in other browsers). Anyone know why Firefox does this / is it intentional behaviour?

Firefox used to allow a hack to add a custom search engine to the search engine list. This allowed users to make custom engines the DEFAULT search engine. (Engines can be added to Bookmarks but then they require a keyword to activate. Default engines do not require a keyword to activate).

The way to do it was: 1) place a folder called "searchplugins" with your custom .xml file describing your search engine (i.e.,, a URL with a %s added to it) inside your Home folder on a Linux OS.

2) open the Web Console

3) input: Services.search.addEngine("file:///home/user/searchplugins/custom-engine.xml", null, null, false);

4) now your custom search engine would appear in the search engine listing in Firefox and could be made default

On recent Firefoxes, this no longer works. When I inter the Sevices.search.addEngine part to the Web Console, I get this message: "ReferenceError: Services is not define"

I've been using Google Chrome because of stuff like this. Firefox just doesn't allow me to do what I want to do. But I appreciate Mozilla ideals and am trying to give Firefox another chance. But it is contingent on being able to make my custom search engine the default search engine.

Is there a fix for this error I'm encountering in the Web Console?

So my Firefox Developer edition just got updated to the version 74.0b2 and I got this brand new address/search bar. One of the things that it used to have before it had been updated was a simple arrow-down button that, when clicked, showed the most visited sites. Now, after the update, this button is gone (pic related). This makes my experience with Firefox *extremely* worse, because now I don't have a quick access to open one of my most visited sites inside the current tab without starting typing their addresses. Is there any option to bring that feature back? Is removal of this button an already-made design choice for Firefox that will stay with us for the next versions?

On some pages the scrollbar color is fine, but on most pages it is the annoying grey on grey. I also tried disabling layout.css.scrollbar-color.enabled in about:config without any effects.

The option to always open a link in a particular container seems to be linked to the domain; right-click link, Open link in new Container Tab, click the Always open link in this container. This then sets all links to that domain to open in that container.

Often I want to log in to the same domain, but as a different user. So I open them in different containers so as to keep the sessions separate.

It would be useful to specify the container in the bookmark rather, so I can have multiple bookmarks all pointing to the same domain, but each always open in the container I choose for them. I tried various add-ons, but they use the domain-based container feature built into FireFox.

How can I force a bookmark to always open in a set container?
