Firefox Quantum flashes white screen when I revisit idle tabs. This white screen has a loading disc (or flower) at its center. It seems that Mozilla has given Firefox a new "tab discarding" function like Chrome. I wish to disable it. If anyone knows what do I have to find and set to "false" on "about:config", let me know!

Is there a keyboard shortcut to access the menu button and add-on extensions button (top right of toolbar, not the menu bar)?

locking as a duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1250243

I'd like to know if there is a shortcut to toggle the "3-bar" menu button and extension button section of the toolbar. F6 only selects the address bar. Then hitting Tab only moves over to the search bar, and hitting Tab again just toggles through page elements. For instance, in Google Chrome what I am trying to accomplish would be done by hitting Alt and then left-arrow until I've selected the extension button I am looking for (or by hitting F6 and "tabbing" to the right to get to the toolbar buttons). In Mozilla, the only way I find I can access the extension functions or the "3-bar" button is with the mouse.

I need to find all doctor's appointments for a specific doctor in 2018 and 2019. However, the Firefox search tool only allows me to search within one current calendar page. How can I do a search to find and locate a specific name within ALL my calendar pages across multiple years at one time, like I can do in my Microsoft Outlook calendar?

We belong to a product domain and we have a HTML player it happens sometimes that application works in some version and stops working on release of next, Would guide me to any blog which can be followed which tracks the release of beta version of Chrome browsers so that as testers we can proactively test and close the issue before the browser gets live?

I'm use to have many Firefox windows open at the same time (usually 5-8), each one with dozen of tabs and it's difficult remember in which window a certain tab is open. So I think it would be useful hava a command to list all windows and tab open and be able to save this list in another program (text, spreadsheet, presentation or whatever. I searched in Firefox help, but find nothing: is my fault (so, please, suggest ho to do it) or a lack of feature? Many thanks

The one and only website that I want as my new tab is a bit laggy and takes a while to load, probably because of CloudFlare.

And I'd like to have a huge page to see all of my bookmarks in, to make it easier to organize my bookmarks. Instead of using the bookmarks sidebar or the Library window.

So I thought why not combine the two things that I want? Make my new tab open up to the Chrome bookmarks page, and then if I want that laggy website it can be one of the top bookmarks listed. Or if I want to organize and see my other bookmarks instead, I can just ignore that top bookmark and focus on the other bookmarks.

Well my New Tab URL won't let me and it is a Firefox restriction so he couldn't add the feature even if he wanted to.

But surely there is a trick or workaround that might not involve extensions?

If so, please let me know.

I want chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml as my new tab page.

The extension was changing it to http://chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml which broke it.

The current 'on-the-fly' status bar has many issues, especially with infinite (or long timeout) loading/hanging of resources on a website with fixed layout. Especially when the given website is more of a webapplication, where you can't scroll, and sometimes the footer provides you with essential dynamic information.

The common feature request is to add the possibility of a fixed status bar, for people that want that (you can leave the default as is).

And my own idea: make the URL in status bar hover on top of the address bar (or part of it, for example aligned to the right so it's never on top of the domain of the current website). This may sound controversial at first, but I think it's definitely the better way in terms of UI design, and makes a lot of sense especially when you are hovering links in a website.

But in any case, everything is better than a browser that forcedly displays something that hides part of the website and cannot be manually removed.

Even the ability to just turn it off for loading resources, and only display it during hovering of links would be a huge improvement! Who cares about the resources that are being loaded anyway, you could always press F12 for that. Or make a popup menu while you hover the address bar, that will show all the resources currently being loaded.

This is seriously a huge design flaw. I hope my message came across.

The about:config trick doesn't work on Drudge. Chrome has an add-on that blocks autorefresh, but it doesn't work on Drudge, either. Apparently Drudge is hell-bent on autorefreshing his page every thirty seconds whether you like it or not. Has anyone figured out how to make Drudge stop autorefreshing? I used to use NoScript, but since Quantum, NoScript has been transformed into a monstrosity I can't make head or tail of.

how to fix losing all your typed work in firefox session when you hit the 'backspace' key

the problem with firefox going to a previous page and deleting all your typed work when you hit the backspace key is a known issue, for over eight years, and firefox has no intention of fixing the problem despite countless user complaints. the resulting loss in thousands of man-hours of work is not acceptable under any circumstances

but what is unacceptable aside from all the lost man-hours is that instead of mozilla immediately fixing the problem, it has allowed it to linger. i can no longer afford to use mozilla software. it's easier for me to delete all mozilla software from each and every one of my computers than have to keep track of the browser.backspace_action key for all of them. i'm going through all my drives and deleting everything to do with firefox

here's how to do it: download vivaldi browser and import all of your firefox settings: https://drive.google.com/file/d/11v63-MFUkOGVRm4Oia5EuW_ZTqVZosXl/view?usp=sharing

use this walkthrough to import all of your firefox tabs into vivaldi: https://browserengine.net/how-to-import-tabs-from-chrome-to-firefox-and-vice-versa/

search through all your drives for "mozilla" and "firefox", and delete everything, esp. having to do with "installer" or "setup" https://drive.google.com/file/d/1S5iAcWjC_wh0vNiWJujR-xk7lfhgihPJ/view?usp=sharing

there. you will never destroy your work by using the backspace key, and you can edit your typed work without fear of mozilla hijacking your browser and destroying all of your work

you can go the extra mile by putting every correspondence from mozilla that concerns donations into the spam folder
