If I want to attach an image to a document or such using Firefox, a window opens allowing me to select the image or document but these use a nearly microscopic thumbnail that's impossible to see. To ensure I'm picking the right image, I have to open a file manager window simultaneously (which has icons/thumbnails large enough to be useable) and then find the filename of the image I want. Only by matching the filenames will I know I've got the right image. It's very cumbersome and I would love to know how to force Firefox to use the system defaults for icon sizes and thumbnails. I'm on Linux (Ubuntu 20.04LTS) using Firefox 79.0 64-bit.

Thank you for any help.

Prior to installing Catalina all pages would automatically open in full screen view, including my home page on start up. Since installing Catalina this no longer happens. Every time I open Firefox, I now have to go to the menu and manually select full screen view. Once I do this, all new pages then open in full screen view for the remainder of that session, but once I finish each session and close down Firefox, the same thing occurs next time I open it and commence a new session. In other words, there no longer seems to be a setting in Preferences to make this change permanent and avoid the need to have to manually select full screen view at the beginning of every new session.

It sounds like peak laziness, but I'm not a fan of opening a menu every time I want to change search engine nor do I want to use a prefix (though I suppose I wouldn't mind 'g' instead of '@google', 'ddg' instead of '@duckduckgo').

I'd like to have more than one search bar akin to the one you can choose adjacent to the address bar--each with its own search engine. If such a tweak doesn't exist browser-side or even addons-side, I suppose I wouldn't mind dabbling with the code if someone can tell me what file I'd have to go to in order to do this.

I regularly bounce between Google, Bing, and Duckduckgo as the search results vary with each (and, imo, Google has been less reliable as time goes by). Such a tweak would make browsing a lot more convenient for me.

Hi,

I have been using the new feature of "generate new secure password" integrated in Firefox Developer Edition, I just realized It always generates the same password on the same website, doesn't change not even a character. Also there is no option to configure the password strength, character limit, number, letter, signs, etc.

I installed the uBlock Origin add on to stop ads while watching youtube. I restarted the computer. uBlock Origin is in Add Ons, and is switched on. However, I am still receiving ads. First ad is before the clip plays. After 5 seconds, I can end the ad. Second ad is really intrusive. It interrupts the clip. Perhaps I misunderstood the capabilities of uBlock Origin, or how to use it. I would appreciate any recommendations Firefox version on my Windows 7 PC is: 79.0 (64-bit) Thanks.

I'd like to add a couple of lines of Javascript that will automatically log me in my email once the page loads (my provider has no "remember me" option. I found an extension [an extension](https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/javascript/) that allows me to do this, but unfortunately, my email provider has a strict [CSP](https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/CSP), and the extension is blocked.

Is there any way around this? Can I tell Firefox to ignore the CSP for this one webpage, or maybe run some Javascript automatically via dev tools?

Hi all,

I am trying to customize my Firefox on Mac because the tabs on top interfere with the menu bar, thus I only want tree-style tab extension to work on the side, with the tabs on top disabled.

I followed this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1184674#answer-1028260 as well as this clear guide on how to create userChrome.css: https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html When I tried to restart the browser, I seemed to have been logged out of my profile, with all customization gone and a standard white (instead of black) menu. I deleted the chrome folder and it is normal again now.

I suspect the userChrome.css file should contain more than just the one line I tried to add: #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } ; Is there any location where I can copy my current intra-browser customization into the userChrome.css file?

Hello there,

I've recently switched from Firefox to Firefox Developer. I've noticed that while in FF, I am able to change the default fonts (such as San-Serif font to Inter, and Monospace font to Monaco), but in FF Developer, I am unable to change the fonts to anything but the defaults. Can someone help me fix this issue, or is this issue a feature of FF Developer edition?

Hello experts, I have a problem: I had a session window open with 116 tabs open and I cannot re-open them after restert of FireFox. I use the newest Firefox version 79.0 (64-Bit) on Windows 7 Pro SP1 and the extension "Tab Session Manager" I closed FireFay and as usual, after I restartef it, I waited for the opening of the series of my previous opened tabs. FireFax opened 117 tbs but did not fill in the URLs. They were all opened as new tabs. So I tried to open FireFox with deactivated add-ons. There it was possible to restore all the tabs. After that I closed FireFox again and opened it the usual way. It opened 116 tabs but they were all empty. I used the Add-on manager to shut down my extensions leaving only the tab session manager, AdblockPlus, NoScript. After restarting te tabs were empty again. In the list of the tab session manager I could find the sessions with 116 empty tabs (see ErrorTabSessionManager0.gif) but also the last session with the original tabs. See image ErrorTabSessionManager1.gif. I could even save this list from TabSessionManager. I updated PabSessionmanager to the newest version but that did not help. How can I get FireFox to load these previous tabs again, some of them are very important for me ? thanks for any help Jochen

FireFox ESR 68.11.0 - 64bit Windows 8.1

Start typing a URL in the address bar ... a search bar drops down automatically and begins searching. What is the real fix for this annoying and insecure behavior?

There are dozens if not hundreds of search posts on this topic, most are specific to a particular version of FireFox. Developers, I shudder every time I update the program because I know I will be spending hours or days on a new configuration. Apparently, developers have cleverly eliminated the settings that disable this feature.

This drop-down search bar is annoying and unnecessary. A child might find it useful. Simply put, the user should be able to turn it on or off in the "Options" section. We don't like playing with your about.config settings, or adding code. If I type an address in the URL bar, I do not want the URL searched arbitrarily. Nor do I want to see a new pop-up bar. Please make the use of these "features" optional.

Please create a new general information topic "Removing the automatic URL search" and put this topic to rest once and for all. This is an excellent argument for a paid version of FireFox. I would gladly pay for a clean program rather than waste my time tweaking every single new version.

Thank you!
