Hi, We use Firefox for different Web-Interfaces in our Studio. The used Computer is not (and never will be) connected to the Internet. From time to time we get a message in the upper right corner, that tells us, that Firefox is not able to make updates, because it’s not connected to the Internet. (What we allready know) Is it possible to stop this message from appearing? (It’s annoying, when there is no Keyboard or mouse available to click it away) Thanks for your help!

Dear Volunteer, Thank you for being a volunteer with Firefox ( I guess this is the same as Mozilla?). I have changed to Fire fox from Chrome. My add on Add On Auto Text Expander from Chrome I cannot get it working in Firefox. I have seen I can open the Add On Auto text Expander, but it doesn't have my allready made text expander information. Because my list is not so long I can do the exercise again in FireFox. But I would like to learn how it works. My list I have saves as an TXT in a download Isjon.

Kind regards,

Gert-Jan van der Struys

How to ensure that hyperlinks in pinned tabs open in new tabs?

I am using Firefox 83.0 (64-bit) on Mac OS Big Sur 11.0.1.

Until recently, when I would click on a hyperlink within a pinned tab, it would open in a new tab. (To be sure, this is *without* pressing the Control key on the Mac, or without right clicking on the mouse --> open link in new tab option).

But now, hyperlinks inside pinned tabs open in the same window. This is a workflow nightmare because I am used to having links originating within my pinned Gmail window open in a new tab.

I have followed the instructions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283295, but this does not help.

Is there some way to disable Ctrl + Shift + Q without installing 3rd party software? Most of the key mapping extensions contain security warnings.

I find myself constantly frustrated that a "destructive" action like quit has been put so closely beside a productive option like cycle back a tab. The combination of having Ctrl + Shift + Q beside Ctrl + Shift + Tab is quite obnoxious on a QWERTY keyboard. I would like to try map this to something that makes more sense like Ctrl + Shift + E or Ctrl + Alt + Q.

I'm running Firefox 82.0.3.

Hello. I downloaded a Netgear driver update utility zip file (??) and for some reason I got confused when it said it would open it with Windows Explorer... and I decided to have it opened with Firefox instead. To add dumb insult to dumb injury, I checked the box to have downloads do that with ALL files like that going forward. If i click on that downloaded file, more than 175 tabs open up before i can make it stop. How do I undo this? Thank you kindly in advance

FF is nagging me to no end to upgrade, from 82.0.3 to whatever. I would prefer to just get rid of the nags if that is possible.

Short of that, the upgrades are NEVER as advertised and always blow up things that are never covered in the upgrade release notes. I get the impression these upgrades are poorly tested. The last site-specific video AutoPlay problem I had took two months to fix -- no thanks to FF support. But I got it fixed. That involved Engineer Buddys at Intel and the source code.

Here I'll ask the same old question and no doubt get the same canned response -- Are there any unexpected blow-ups I need to know about NOT covered in the release notes ? Of course the answer will be No, because the volunteers are not privy to the thinking and failures of the developers.

Let me be clear about this: When/if I upgrade (because the changes wrought in my modified browser will be blown out and I'll need to co-opt more help with that) is there anything extant that will not work ? Anything at all -- especially with respect to video AutoPlay features ?

Upgrade agony got way too old a long, long time ago with respect to settings I had tweaked and got blown out...

Can anyone help with this ?

Preferred solution: Shutdown the upgrade nags.

JesusHChrist, the rocket science spam detection on this board seems to be blocking my posts that contain a firefox and mozilla link. That's right, firefox and mozilla. So I don't know what to do about that except the stupid URL deformation below. So let me try to post again. At h t t p s : / / s u p p o r t . m o z i l l a . o r g / e n - U S / u s e r s / e d i t or h t t p s : / / a c c o u n t s . f i r e f o x . c o m / s e t t i n g s I see no way to change my email address. It appears that the only choice is to add a new account, and optionally delete the old one. I do not want that. I want to change the email address, and still see my old posts after logging in with the new one. Is that not permitted? The only setting I see is Secondary email address. I want to change the primary. Thank you kind helpers.

I posted this question yesterday. The feedback was provided by a 'robot', the e-mail took me down a very confusing rabbit hole. I cannot reply to a robot, so I need to post the same question again.

I believe at some point I selected the option in the title, by mistake, and Mozilla is unforgivingly stuck on that option and just won't let go. Is there any real support on Mozilla, or it just a patchwork of robots and nonsense lengthy feedback e-mails that make no sense at all? I can't even reply to a robot. Is this the real Mozilla support?

Let me know. Mozilla taunts this wonderful community, plenty of support, but a robot answers your question?? Really????
