Firefox has started making a piercing high-pitched screech when the "save image" and "file update" panels appear. This is a confirmation or alert sound I suppose. It occurs when saving an image from a right-click menu and when downloading a file. Formerly Firefox used the system default sound for this, and that sound is still working in other programs for similar operations.

How can I fix this? Or alternatively how can I disable the sound during such operations in Firefox (or alternatively system-wide)?

Hi All. Love FF but there's one thing that's driving me crazy... the different color of the Library window (see screen grab). The main window is this nice dark "cool gray" color, but the library window is this greenish color.

Is there a way to change that? I've had the userChrome.css file installed and feel fairly comfortable making code edits.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I downloaded Firefox on a new computer. I logged in with my existing account and synced my data

This was successful. All of my bookmarks and extensions were downloaded properly.

I went into the customize menu to alter my toolbar. However, there were no icons for any of the extensions that I added, such as Bitwarden or Ublock Origin.

Due to this, I am not able to add these extension icons to my toolbar.

I verified that the extensions were all properly downloaded and that they work as they should.

I have already attempted to restart Firefox, uninstall and reinstall certain extensions, and to reinstall Firefox entirely. However, my extension icons do not show up still in the Customize menu

I am not trying to do anything in the Private Browser.

How can this issue be resolved?

I know that there has to be a way to edit the about:config to manually disable individual add-ons (addons) for certain sites. Some add-ons have this built into the extension itself but others (like Honey) are either off or on, but I cannot find any documentation on it.

I would still like to use the extension without having to remember to turn it off and on all the time for websites that I do not want it to spam suggestions at me. Thanks in advance.

Hi folks,

Since the last 109.0 update I've noticed a strange behavior with Firefox.

Sometimes after watching a video stream in full screen, my toolbar changes and moves all my customized icons / extensions etc. into this "more tools" drop down menu. I can reproduce this by repeatedly switching from full screen to the normal view

This is so annoying and frustrating.

Does anyone know how I can fix this?

Apple's built in spell checker on the Mac is unparalleled. Not only does it integrate with the native dictionary, it also automatically detects and switches languages as you type. Right-clicking on an unfamiliar word brings up the "look up" option which fins the word in the dictionary. It's furthermore smart enough to detect misspelled words which are correct words in another language. I don't know how apple achieved this, it's remarkable.

Anyway, Firefox displaces this functionality on the mac with their own dictionary, which although good, is not as good as the native spell checking and dictionary.

Is there a way to enable the native dictionary for Firefox on the Mac?

Is there a way for the new window animation in Firefox for Mac to be disabled?

Safari does not do this, but firefox has a... ~100ms animation for new windows that's extremely frustrating for those of us who do not use tabs (Apple's Exposé/Mission Control obsoletes them).

I haven't found a configuration in about:config, although I've been able to disable a few others.

Greetings!

If this is actually a thing, I would like to know how to make it happen. If it is not a thing, this a suggestion that would be amazing to implement into the web-browser!

On my phone, when you scroll, it automatically hides the address bar and everything on it, to go 'full-screen'. I want this on my laptop. How can I make it, that when I scroll, or even just sit on a webpage for a moment, the URL bar will smoothly transition into being 'hidden'?

I want to be clear: I do NOT want to use the fullscreen, CTRL + F11 function, because then my Windows task bar is not accessible. Right now I have my taskbar hidden, which is fantastic because it gives my laptop screen a bigger feel. And if FireFox's URL could do the same... that would be beautiful.

bookmarks toolbar icons and tabs

I have been using FireFox from the beginning, and it is still my browser of choice. Nonetheless, I still see some ways in which the interface would be better. In the long past, I'd been able to put some XML/XUL CSS code in userchrome.css to make these better, at least for me. However, 5-10 years ago, changes in FireFox broke these changes. For the past 5-10 years, I would occasionally get some time to tweak my userchrome.css with information find on this forum or elsewhere online. But every time I found some code snippets, FireFox had changed enough that they didn't work anymore. This is concerning in that the structure and codebase is changing relatively frequently and it's hard to find out how this affects these code snippets.

The two userchrome tweaks i would really like are (a) showing only icons on the bookmarks toolbar, and (b) having the tabs right next to the main window.

Full disclosure: I am not an IT professional, but I started off coding in machine code and only then was allowed to code in A86 assembler. I have had a long interest in user interaction design. I'm a physician and medical school professor, so my interest is primarily in medical software. But I've helped organize some international symposia on the usability of medical software at which I have also lectured, have a blog devoted to the subject, and I was awarded the first annual Lifetime Achievement Award by the Informatics Section of the American College of Emergency Physicians.

So, now for an observation. I have a file cabinet drawer filled with paper records that I need to keep in paper form (as opposed to my usual scanning to PDF. These papers are sorted into file folders. I do not cut the tabs off of all of my folders and put them in a pile somewhere else. Which is why I want my tabs to visually connect to the content in each "folder" by being next to them.

And as far as the Bookmarks Toolbar: I realize the importance of positional memory. I want to have my most important bookmarks on the screen – lots of them – where I can click on them easily. Easily in this case means not having to read text, but being able to automatically move my mouse cursor to about the right place and then refine my click by recognizing the graphic icon for that website.

The best solution would be for the fireFox coders to think about these things, come around to my way of thinking (which OBVIOUSLY has to be right), and make changes in the codebase to make observe these UX principles, and make the appropriate changes in the user interface. Or at least make them options in the user interface. Or at the very least, post in an obvious place changes to the underlying structure that kills userchrome coding (with suggestions how to change the code to work in the new architecture) so that those who are not immersed in the innards of FireFox like me have a fighting chance to improve the interface, at least for a few of us.

I want to know how to disable the image "enhancement" in Firefox. Firefox is rending colours with unrealistic saturation. I recall there being an option to turn it on and off in the config, but I can't find it any more. I've attached a screenshot showing Firefox rendering on the left and MS Edge on the right. MS Edge has image "enhancement" turned off. The most obvious area is the terribly over saturated red pin on the map in the Google search results, but the adjacent picture also shows greater saturation in Firefox. (You may need to scroll horizontally to view the full width of the screenshot.)

Can anyone help me to find the setting?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

Yes, indeed, another occurrence of this everlasting request.

I don't want to see the word 'userchrome.css' or 'addon' at all in any of the answers that might be provided.

The question is: when will it be finally possible to have an option in the settings so the user can choose to have the tabs bar BELOW the bookmarks bar. After so many years and so many requests from so many people, how is it possible we have never been heard ?

How to officially raise a complaint / request to the teams taking this kind of decisions ?

Thank you.
