I need to reorder Firefox windows on the taskbar badly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also it would be useful to have custom titles. Both things should persists after PC restart. I tried couple programs, but they don't work. Devs said: position of Firefox window on the taskbar is store in Firefox and their program has no way of remembering that! Also windows get randomly shuffled each time, it is impossible to use like this. It takes me forever to find right window. It is annoying the hell out of me. How Firefox dev team doesn't fix something that basic??? This is so stupid...

Please tell me there is some solution...

Is there anyway to set my own zoom levels, like we used to be able to, you know, like 10 years ago?

I used to have my own zoom levels that went up 10% all the way to 300%, then started 25% intervals.

For example, my levels from 100% to 200% looked like this: 100%, 110%, 120%, 130%, 140%, 150%, 160%, 170%, 180%, 190%, 200%.

So, is there any way to do this now?

Ever since yesterday when I accidentally turned on caret browsing I've been trying to turn it back off. I've been pressing F7 in an attempt to bring up the pop-up, but to no avail. I've been searching all over the internet for solutions, but nothing has helped yet. I'm only able to find articles on disabling caret browsing in Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome. Obviously, that doesn't help me with Firefox.

This happened a few minutes ago. I was on Twitter and suddenly all the links there were underlined. That happens on this website as well. I went on Firefox settings to uncheck "Underlined links" box, they are still underlined, and specifically in the Firefox settings website, random letters were underlined when they weren't before, they do not lead to any links though. The underlined links take me to the right location. This doesn't happen in other websites such as Tumblr or Youtube for some reason.

I thought it could be a malware, this happened right after I downloaded an app called Rave to my PC. However I searched for info on the app and if it's malicious and I've only heard good things about it. Uninstalled it from my PC just in case and nothing changed. I searched for answers and saw people saying the link stuff could be an adware but the links take me to the right location, I ran Malwarebytes and it didn't detect anything, nor is anything called "Text Enhance" downloaded to my PC. Running another antivirus scan right now.

I have no idea what this could be. It's not giving me any serious problems, it's not showing me any suspicious links. It just looks unpleasant and annoying. No idea what this could be. Please help. Added a few example images.

I've already found the solution, but wanted to share that Version 90 created a problem with Print Preview and Shrink to Fit. Uninstalling Version 90 and re-installing Version 89 fixed the problem. With Version 90 the Print Preview function (which I love) didn't work properly. When I try to Shrink to Fit any page, the first page shrinks, but the second page isn't pulled into the first page. Also, there's missing information on both pages. If there's another solution so I can use Version 90, please tell me. If not, and Mozilla is doing away with Print Preview (and Shrink to Fit), I'll have to do away with Mozilla Firefox. Sorry, but that's the main reason I use Firefox over Chrome. Perhaps I can find another browser to do what I want. I hope not though.

I have my default setting as Firefox as browser and Google as my search engine. In the last few days, Bing always comes up when I open Firefox, but when I open a second tab, the page is Google as it should be. I think this started when I updated. I have checked the default browser setting in Windows 10, and the default search engine in Firefox, and they are both set properly. This is mostly an annoyance, but I would like to know how to change it back to the way I am used to.

When working from home I have to do a lot of things in the web based version of Microsoft Office. I am using Firefox 89.0.2 and Windows 10. In OneDrive where I have a lot of documents, any item the cursor stops on for even a fraction of a second causes a small pop-up description of the item. It's driving me crazy and slowing me down, preventing me from immediately clicking on the item I actually want. I thought I saw a solution but it was for an older version of both Firefox and Windows, and my settings already showed that solution was active.

On my macbook [macOS Big Sur 11.4 ] in firefox [version 89.0.2 (64-bit)] all pages will zoom in or out whenever I hold down the shift key and swipe up or down on my trackpad. This is really annoying. How do I fix this?

( I really use the CTRL+SHIFT+TAB shortcut to navigate tabs and it becomes problematic very quickly)

I could find the solution for fixing it for [[CTRL+SCROLL (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1194305) |CTRL+SCROLL (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1194305) ]]but couldn't find for SHIFT+SCROLL.

Hi!

I want to edit system theme for firefox. Where exactly is it stored on the disk?

Previously it is asked here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/940165

But that answer does not reveal the exact file location.

For example if I want to tweak font used on browser tab or shadow color around browser tab what exactly do I have to edit?

PS I dont want simply to customize colors like themes you can find on the internet do. I want to customize entire html/css that is used in FF UI.

Are those buttons (behind the "page actions" one) supposed to be definitively absent from version 90 on?

They seemed to me one of the most intelligent features in Firefox interface. Some can be added under "customize" option, but copy link and pint tab are not.

Is this removal based on the idea that addons are supposed to provide the same actions anyway?
