I just recently started using mac being a windows user. While I understand this is not really a game breaker, why is Firefox the only program that ignores my preference changes? Going to settings>keyboard>modifier keys> and then swapping ctrl with the command key fixes my desire to have ctrl+ commands work with every single program, except Firefox still uses the command key as its shortcut initiator no matter what I do. I have seen a few posts from at least 3 years ago and as recent as 2020, does Mozilla ever plan to implement a shortcut menu for its users or are we stuck with using 3rd parties to fix this for us? I still use both PC and Mac.

This is driving me crazy. I've been using Chrome for 4 years and I switch to Firefox because it is more faster and smooth than Chrome, my issue is that I'm a writer so, on the website that I work on we got this shortcuts to put bold, cursive, etc, and they begin with Alt + something, every time that I'm trying to use them I got the bookmark on the menu bar open and doesn't let me use the shortcut on the website.

There is any way to delete completely the menu bar? I already got the ui.key.menuAccessKeyFocuses on false, but the shortcuts as Alt + B still open the bookmarks or Alt + H opens the history on the menu. I really need a fix for this guys.

I'm old school. My new tab and home page are my own. Sadly there has been a recent regression with respect to Containers with Firefox 89.0.1. I've been using Firefox Multi-Account Containers for a very long time. I've been using 7.3.0 since January. It seems no matter what I do it is now h*ll bent on prompting what container I want to open my home page in. It doesn't matter how many times I tell it not to do this on the "Open this site in your assigned container?" in the most recent version of Firefox all buttons related to opening in the Default container do not appear. I can tell it to "Remember my decision for this site" and open in the current container but that does nothing. It's right back to the prompting every time I open a tab. Has anyone found a way to end this extraneous prompting?

When is Mozilla going to stop making FireFox even less ADA Acceptable? Thousands, if not millions, choose FF because it is accessible. With each update starting with Quantum, FF has become less accessible. I am currently trying to find an accessibility attorney to file a discrimination claim against FF/Mozilla. Stop making thing broken by 'fixing' them. Thin lines. Thin fonts. Icons without text. Shaded colors with no definition. A tab line on top with hazzy shadows behind it. YUCK

People with vision issues such as early cataracts cannot see this crap.

Mozilla F'd the Fox with this one.

Does there need to be an uprising at Mozilla in SF to get somebody's attention?

Once again Netflix isn't able to play the videos on the FireFox browser. It told me that my browser was not updated, so I updated the Add-ons and then I got the dreaded "Widevine has crashed" again. This happened before in April 2021? I think and then it was fixed. I hope the FireFox team sees this and is able to fix this bug again. Any other suggestions from other users are welcomed.

Like to be able speak words directly into search bar (and secondly into other text alphanumeric fields). Just like I do into iPhone. This would help me greatly since I'm not the best speller and I usually speak faster than I can type. I sure it would help others as well.

Dear All,

I urgently need to retrieve various documents saved in the past as web pages with the Scrapbook extension which I found very easy and useful. Some of them date back to 2008. When I try to reactivate ScrapBook in "Add-ons and Themes" I find that ScrapBook is disabled and that there is no switch to re-enable it. i have access to the ScrapBook folder in the /home/.../.mozilla/firefox/********.default folder. Indeed I find in that folder a lot of data folders titled with the date and time of creation but it is very tedious to search. How can I reactivate ScrapBook or is there another way to easily access all these pages saved with ScrapBook? Firefox extension or standalone software?

Thanks in advance to all!

I keep my address bar and search bar separate. I wanted to have the address bar execute the search on the already open tab, and the search bar to open a new tab in the background without stealing the focus. I managed to set them up separately, now the address bar does not open a new tab and the search bar does, but the newly opened tab always steals the focus. I'm trying to keep the focus on the already open tab while the search bar opens a new tab without switching to it. Is there a way to achieve this?
