When I wan't to use add-ons in Firefox for Mac, they just don't work. I can install them but they do not open. I have tried re-installing Firefox, installing the Firefox Beta (which supports Apple Silicon but crashed a lot) and restarting my computer, as well as re-installing the Add-Ons. Nothing works. How can I fix this?

Even though I'm in the UK I was previously able to use the form auto fill function by changing the extensions.formautofill.available preference from "detect" to "on" however I updated to Firefox 83.0 and it reverted to "detect" and I am now unable to save any changes to it becasue it has always reverted to "detect" when I restart Firefox.

Form auto fill is such a simple and useful function that really needs to be available, Chrome has had it working for years.

Firefox - Add Colored tabs

I had Firefox version 81 and after installing version 82 in a new install on a new hard drive, I cannot change the color of my tabs anymore. I should see white tabs for the current tab but no longer when I added my userChrome.css file. I see instead a thin blue color strip along the top of the tab and the rest is grey. This shows up without any userChrome.css file.

In Firefox address field type: about:support It shows my Profile. vwy0y5ix.default-release I also have under the Profile folder this: jcueuz5y.default

I put the userChrome.css file here in my Chrome folder: C:\Users\David\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\vwy0y5ix.default-release

What it contains: /* USE THIS ONE. It works in version 65 https://github.com/Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx/releases/tag/2.3.4

@import "./css/tabs/tabs_below_navigation_toolbar_fx65.css"; /**/ /* <-- tabs not on top - Fx65+ - Windows/Linux */

/* Colored tab */ .tab-background:not([selected]) {

   background-color: #E3E0DB !important;

}

.tab-background[selected="true"] {

   background-color: white!important;

}

/*** Sidebar Color / Font Size Formatting ***/ /* 14px black text */ .sidebar-placesTree treechildren::-moz-tree-cell-text {

I have a new MacBook Pro 2020 with MacOS Big Sur 11.0.1. I have made Firefox the default browser by going to the Apple menu and choosing System Preferences then choosing General. I have also made Firefox the default browser by going to the Firefox menu and choosing Preferences then General. On that screen it says that Firefox is not my default browser and there is a box to click on that says "Make Default". I click on it then click on "use Firefox", but when I click on links in my email Safari still opens. Any suggestions.

After removing one of my extensions from my toolbar (Last.fm Scrobbler for YouTube), it didn't show up in my customize page so I reinstalled it and even though it's still fully functional, it doesn't show up on my toolbar or my customize page. Resetting my customization settings to their default didn't help either.

Plainly speaking, I don't like the new address bar, how it auto completes my searches or the results it pulls. I didn't like it when it was defaulted to being on starting with version 75 but I was able to easily switch a few setting in about:config to fix it. Those settings no longer affect the address bar as of update 77.

The settings I had changed were:

browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus browser.urlbar.update1 browser.urlbar.update1.interventions browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips

which were all set to false. I saw that setting "browser.urlbar.disableExtendForTests" to "true" might be the solution but, while it does stop the address bar from expanding when using it, it also stops it from expanding at all so the websites that would come up from searching can no longer be seen either (they are still called and using the down arrow will let me scroll through the results, I just can't see any of them). It also doesn't fix the results issue which I would say is the most important.

I would like to know what I need to do so that: 1. The results it shows me are no longer based on frequent visit (basically, the pre-update search system, as is they are scattered and look messy, pulling many different sites in a seemingly random order and it's not particularly useful) 2. It no longer autocompletes results (IE. "F" autocompleting to "facebook.com", this is always something that has bothered me regardless is context) 3. It no longer pops out/expands when in use (admittedly this is mostly an aesthetic issue but I still don't like how it looks)

I hate the "This time, search with" in the URL bar. When I want to search, I use the Search bar for that. I don't need extra icons that I'm not going to use taking up space in the URL bar. I've seen it suggested that they can be removed in the Search options page. But when I've tried that, it also removes them from the Search bar.

Here's what I want: for the URL bar to only have space for a URL, no "This time, search with" nonsense, but the Search bar left completely intact, with all the search engines I use.
