Hello, I've been having this problem when I tap extensions on the toolbar, their small pop-up windows appear in the top-right but when I tap on the buttons in that window, the pop-up disappears instead of accepting my touch input to one of its buttons, it used to accept touch input fine, but no longer does

I've tried refreshing Firefox, and then removing prefs.js in case I messed with any of the about:config settings but it was to no avail, and I've even tried upgrading to Firefox Beta but same problem persists in beta, disabling all the extensions except one still doesn't allow add-ons to accept my touch input.

To be clear, the touch input works on Firefox's inherent buttons in the toolbar, like Bookmarks, History, Downloads, even the Pocket widget and three dots beside it, but any external extensions I install from addons.mozilla site no longer accept the input, and my touch input works fine in Chrome browser, but I like to use both browsers.

Hello, I want to use the Ctrl + [ and Ctrl + ] keyboard shortcuts (All keyboard shortcuts - Firefox Developer Tools | MDN) on my German keyboard in the Firefox Developer Tools.

On a German keyboard, there is no dedicated [ or ] key.

What keys do I have to press to use this keyboard shortcut?

In the Find box, sometimes the search skips over my word of interest before I fully type in the word.

I would like to search the old fashioned way in the Find box. Let me completely type my search word and hit Enter before the search commences.


Is this possible?


I do not have the "Search as You Type" option turned on, which really does not apply to the Find box.

I have repeatedly tried VIEW to get my two most important toolbars to come back. My Bookmarks bar is gone and so is my URL bar, so I can't copy URLs or type in known addresses. Updating to Foxfire 5 didn't help.

I use the add-on TabGroups Manager and I like to hibernate tab groups to save memory. When a tab group is hibernated, I can bring it back even after I close Firefox and shutdown my computer. With the new Panorama(Tab Groups), is it also possible to hibernate tab groups so I can open them later?

Is there back-support for FF 4.x? If not, why not?

I'd like to roll back to FF4.x until my add-ons are updated for 5.0, but I can't find 4.0 on the mozilla website (even though I can find 3.6.x). Is there a plan to have 4… (read more)

I'd like to roll back to FF4.x until my add-ons are updated for 5.0, but I can't find 4.0 on the mozilla website (even though I can find 3.6.x). Is there a plan to have 4.0 support, or has it been so completely superseded by 5.0 that it's actually unsafe to use?

As general feedback, I'd like to suggest that the compatibility check for add-ons happen *before* confirming the update: it's just unnecessarily frustrating when something breaks and it's too late to go back.

I have a mac, I was using firefox 3.6.16 which works just fine. I tried updating to version 4, but the appearance was weird and the preferences pane was all kinds of screwed up. I downloaded version 5 today and its pretty much the same as version 4. I have tried using safe mode and it works fine, I disabled all extensions and none of it works.
