Hello there, I want to use the browser.ssb.enabled feature I enabled in about:config. This feature is for basically having a website as a webapp. But since in the new Firefox the 3 dot button got removed I now have no way accessing the feature. Do you know how to get the button back or is there maybe a workaround ?

Thank you

This: https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2021/04/19/changes-to-themeable-areas-of-firefox-in-version-89/

Says that I can’t have lines separating my unused tabs anymore. This is SO annoying. Can anyone help me get borders between my unused tabs?

Also, WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS Mozilla? Now I have to stop EVERYTHING that I am doing and research how I can make your browser work the way I want it to. Why do you always assume that you know what is best for me?

I tried the "Stylish" add-in but when I try to install a specific style from their site - nothing happens.

The Firefox Universe is extremely vast, and trying to Google “lines between my unused tabs” is getting me nowhere. I don’t know how to develop themes. I don’t code. I just want the browser to look like it did last week. Is it really so much to ask?

Every. Single. Time. I update Firefox - I regret it!!!

Some recent changes to FF have changed my home screen so when I start typing into google search in the google page, it instead appears in the URL bar at the top of the page along with a whole list of suggestions that I may or may not want, but are impossible to get rid of. When I finish typing and when I hit enter, it picks one of them and then I have to hit enter again to actually search.

Why can't I just have my text enter into the google search on the webpage so that I only have to hit enter once? This is pretty recent, in the last few updates. I've played around with settings but nothing seems to move my text back down out of the address bar into the webpage.

I am having a problem with clippings extension. Every day this week when I click on the clippings icon, the page doesn't appear. (The web browser flashes - but the clippings page doesn't appear) I have to remove clippings, reinstall clippings and then restore clippings from backup. Clippings works for the rest of the day just fine - even if I close out of the browser. When I come back in the next day - clippings are gone and I have to go through the whole process again.

I've tried reinstalling firefox as well as refresh.

Firefox version: 78.13.0esr

Note: Clippings has worked fine for the past 5+ years.

I have a text on a webpage on 2 lines, which are separated by (invisible) instruction to go to the next line (a so-called "cr/lf").

I copy this text (including the cr/lf) from the web page to the clipboard. I activate the search function with "control-f", and I paste this text in the search box, then Firefox finds 0 matches.

for example:

line1 line2

Between line1 and line2 is a CRLF.

So, in above example, on the clipboard there is "line1CRLFline2"

I have the following questions:

1. Is there a way to overcome this? To find correct search result? (1 match) 2. Is there a plugin/extension available that can handle the above scenario?

After a fresh install of Firefox everything works, but after copying over my old profile data the built-in search engine icons disappear. I have tried the "Restore Default Search Engines" button, deleting search.json.mozlz4 and favicons.sqlite. I cannot find any setting or file that references an icon URI for these search engines.

This happened a week ago, and then after a fresh install I only copied over the most important bits of the profile and setup a lot of things from scratch, but I don't want to repeat that again...


Where are the search engine icon URIs stored? What do I have to set, edit or delete to fix this?

I use Firefox to open a webpage that has PDF forms that I use routinely. Up until yesterday, 8-24-2021, I would click on the link and the form would open in Acrobat as I desire. Yesterday they started opening in the built in PDF preview, which I am sure is nice for some who just want to read a document, but does not meet my needs for signatures, etc.... I am guessing there was an update that was installed. I changed the settings to open PDFs in Acrobat and it continues to open them in the previewer. I change the setting to ask what to do and it continues to open them in the previewer. Is there an additional setting that I am missing someplace?

How to select PDF viewer to use when a PDF is saved locally and accessed with "file://" URL

Greetings, and thank you for taking the time to read my request for help. I use Firefox to view the electronic evidence folders of my Social Security disability clients, which are made available in a web-page-based format with relative links to the documents that are saved in PDF format in the downloaded electronic folder. Each of the exhibits on the exhibit list or case documents with a URL that begins with "file://".

My problem is that Firefox now insists on opening the PDF files in my clients' electronic folders using its internal viewer and not Adobe Acrobat EVEN THOUGH I have gone to Settings->Applications and configured all PDF and TIFF file types to open in Adobe Acrobat DC (Please see screenshot below). This is annoying to say the least because I frequently need to run Adobe Acrobat's OCR on the medical records in my clients' electronic folders so that I can copy text to paste into notes or documents and because I need Adobe Acrobat's ability to take snapshots of portions of the exhibits to paste into documents or notes.

What is odd about this issue is that if I download a PDF from a website with a "http://" or "https://" URL, Firefox _WILL_ open up that PDF in Adobe Acrobat DC per the configurations in the Settings->Applications section.

The first uploaded image shows the settings in the Applications section of Settings. The second uploaded image is an example if Firefox opening a PDF document using its internal viewer in spite of the settings in the Settings->Applications section.

Any help in rectifying this issue would be very much appreciated.

Many thanks, Will Snyder

Thanks to Proton expanding my Bookmarks Menu off the bottom of the screen, I was re-arranging my bookmarks folders. While wondering which of my folders I had to prune, I noticed another in-built redundancy. The entry "Manage Bookmarks Ctrl+Shift+O" appears twice, at the top and the bottom of the menu. Incidentally the bottom entry is misaligned (Firefox v89 on Windows).

Is there a particular reasons for this duplication? Can I remove either of these entries?
