I am trying to download the original version of an image, not the re-compressed webp version (Yes, I know some websites only have a webp format image, but I am specifically talking about sites where I can flat out see .jpg or .png in the URL but it's forcing a recompressed webp version on me instead, reddit itself is one of those sites that does this, I cam flat out see the url ending in .jpg or .png, and then a lot of other gibberish after which if I make any changes to breaks the image, and if I leave as-is forces a webp version. Wikia sites are another that do this.). A lot of what I Google on how to do this is not relevant anymore, telling me to modify a setting that no longer exists, add a variable to the URL that no longer works, or install a plugin that does not seem to work anymore and might be a security risk.

The one thing that seems to work is going to the image.http.accept setting and putting in "*/*". Problem is, I have no idea what exactly this is doing, and it looks like to me that I am somehow telling it just allow everything, which worries me if it can be a security risk or something. Can someone help me understand what exactly I am doing when I modify this setting like this and if it's a security risk to do so?

Hello! My name is Anya. I am desperately trying to manage my social media addiction and to help support that I am wondering if its possible to disable the privacy window. I know I can install a website blocker - which I have, but it does not apply to the private window so I have full access to social media on it, I just have to log in. I want to COMPLETELY block Facebook and Instagram off of my laptop. Is this possible? Thank you!

When I do right mouse click on page, depending on the mouse cursor position, context menu appears and I need to scroll up or down to access appropriate item. I thought I need to try and fix size and position of a page context menu. Is it possible? I believe it may depend on the screen size and resolution and how many entries add-ons add to right click menu. Examples: https://imgur.com/nocb5kK.png https://i.imgur.com/yNeNJQh.png

Hello,

In Windows 10 and 11, Firefox's tab bar and other elements that may be transparent render in Windows 10 using some sort of uDWM method (speculation, I could be wrong?) rather than the traditional win32 window frame as you can see with the title bar toggled on. This leads to elements like the tab bar being black or white, depending on your theme unless you have specified otherwise in your chrome. Highlighted yellow below is my problem area.


In my CSS code, I am trying to extend the system color to be drawn to the tab bar (and in this instance, the address bar as well,) but I can't find any way to be able to do this. I have found forums that say to add -moz:appearance -moz-windows-glass, but this completely removes the window border and leaves the Firefox window unresponsive to controls. The only way to close it is if you close it through the taskbar or task manager.


Note that I am aware of .titlebar-color{color: AccentColorText; background-color: AccentColor}, but that's not what I am going for here. That still draws using Windows 10 modern UI. Windows 7 on ESR 115 or unofficially on 116 still draw with Windows Aero in all parts of this CSS code that are black (highligted yellow below.)


I can attach my CSS code if need be.


Thanks for any help!

(Feature) Can we have option to open bookmark manager (chrome://bookmarks/) and history manager (chrome://history/) in new tab rather than in window for Gecko Firefox browser like chrome or chromium browsers in 2024?

I use chrome mostly and for years I have used bookmark manager (chrome://bookmarks/) and history manager (chrome://history/) in new tab and pinned for easy access. The concept of new window is not only inconvenience but also anti-user since I have to use chromium browser (using cococ browser (https://coccoc.com/en, alongside to manage bookmarks and history due to firefox shortcomings). Even edge has option to choose how to open history and bookmark manager in new tab.

I cannot find an option to choose how to open the bookmark manager (chrome://bookmarks/) and history manager (chrome://history/) new tab rather than window otherwise it would have worked. Plus no flags in about:config like chrome adds new features and options via chrome flags.

Is firefox usable for an average user jumping from chrome and chrome using habits in 2024?

Strange keyword behavior

I have a keyword, "ht", for the OED's historical thesaurus. Here is the keyword's URL: https://www.oed.com/search/dictionary/?scope=HistoricalThesaurus&q=%s&tl=true

But it exhibits very strange behavior. When I enter "ht test" in the address bar, it goes to https://www.oed.com/search/dictionary/?scope=HistoricalThesaurus&q=test&tl=true and (for some unknown reason) returns a 403 error. If I refresh with F5 and resend, I get the same error. However, if I simply Alt-D into the address bar and press Enter, it goes to the very same URL and returns the webpage as desired, with no 403 error.

Does anyone know what's going on, or how to make the keyword work properly from the beginning? Thank you!

Hello, I am wondering if there is any way to lock the toolbar so that it does not automatically pop up when you are in full screen mode and hover over the top area of the screen. I cannot easily play some browser games because they must be full screen and the toolbar popping up continuously interrupts the game.

To clarify, I do not want the toolbar to always be there; locking the toolbar so that it automatically shows when in full screen is not the solution I am looking for. I want the toolbar to disappear when I am in full screen and not popup when I hover over the top area of the screen.

Thank you for any help!

When I left-click on text and hold the left mouse button, then right-click, first release the right button, then the left button, a "selection mode" is activated, where the end of the selection follows the mouse pointer despite no button is held. In principle this looks like a useful feature (or it would if the scroll wheel worked in that mode, which it doesn't). But at the same time, the context menu opens when the right button is released. So we trigger two features at once, making both less useful, because they're getting in each other's way.

This frequently happens to me when double clicking on a word and right clicking to open the context menu on it. Accidental overlap of the left and right clicks triggers the selection mode.

Can this behaviour be configured (e.g. to use a custom shortcut) or, if not, be deactivated entirely?

I'm using Firefox 123.0.1 on Linux (openSUSE Tumbleweed).

I turned off the translator popup via about:config and browser.translations.automaticallyPopup to false. Now translation is gone. How can I keep the option to quickly translate a page in the address bar without having the popup jump in my face each time I open a new tab, forcing me to click it to make it go away? This would be a nice option but an extremely distracting presentation. thanks.
