I CANNOT for the life of me ever imagine how or who in the world would PUT THAT on someone's browser. I FOUND IT when I looked under options, and it blew my mind. I think it got there around July 21 an IT HAS BEEN THE SOURCE OF SO MANY PROBLEMS AND GRIEF. THE ORGANIZATION IS WEBROOT.


The webroot people say it's not them. I TRIED the suggestion of deleting it from the registry BUT IT IS NOT THERE UNLIKE OTHERS WHO HAVE IT THERE SO I CAN LIVE AN EASY TIME AND JUST GET RID OF IT. I UNINSTALLED and reinstalled this browser but it is back.

I AM THE ONE WHO CONTROLS THE BROWSER/ -- NOT WEBROOT. 

If firefox doesn't get that, and has to do this nasty garbage by putting this "your browser is being controled by your organization" LET ME REMIND THEM, I CONTROL WEBFROOT, I PAY FOR IT, I CONTROL IT. MY WISHES ARE THE ONES THAT ARE HONORED. I AM THE OWNER OF THE NOTEBOOK

never i don't see chrome doing this. I don't see ie doing this.

i want it gone.

CAN SOMEONE please tell me how to get rid of it>

i looked into the registry and don't see "mozilla" under the policy in the registry keys. woudl it be elsewhere?

THIS IS MY NOTEBOOK. I WILL DECIDE WHAT IS WHAT. THIS DAMN THING HAS CAUSED A MULTITUDE OF IRRITATIONS BEOFRE I FIGURED OUT WHAT THE HELL WAS CAUSING THEM. I NOW USE CHROME, I AM TIRED OF HAVING TO RE-SET THE DAMN DEFAULT PROGRAMS -- HOW DO YOU PEOPLE LIVE IWTH YOUSELVES TO CAUSE SO MANY PROBLEMS FOR PEOPLE? I HAVE NOW SPENT ALL MORNING FROM 8 AM AND I WANT TO SCREAM. IF THIS IS WHAT THIS BROWSER DOES, I WILL GET RID OF IT. THERE AER OTHERS, LIKE SAFARI ETC. EVEN IE WHICH I WILL USE OVER BEING B ULLIED BY THIS.

I am unable to use location access in my mac firefox browser. When using the Met office uk for example I get this message each time. Sorry.

Hi, I figured if anyone knew how to accomplish this, someone here would, because I'm at a loss.

I'm looking to use userChrome.css customizations to bring back the native focus outline (the blue glow) around the URL bar when it's in focus. I feel like this should definitely be possible in one way or another.

This is how my URL bar looks currently: image 1 below (or: https://imgur.com/IQDXejh) This is the "glow" to which I'm referring, which is native to OS X: image 2 below (or: https://imgur.com/ImA6Of8) For the record, I was only able to achieve that second example by using ":root #urlbar {-moz-appearance: textfield;}" which is obviously out of the question and only to illustrate the outline I'm seeking to add to URL bar in the first example.

Put another way, I just want my URL bar to use the native OS X outline glow when in focus (instead of my current 2px border) without changing any other styling, custom or otherwise (as much as possible).

I'm using 78.2.0esr on OS X 10.9.5 and the full contents of my userChrome.css file are: https://pastebin.com/QFsxdaF5 Thank you in advance for any help. Please let me know if I missed something important or can provide anymore information.

Since I help a lot of folks to set up Firefox, and customize the settings a lot, it would be great to have a way to export and import those custom settings. Sync is no help as they don't have an account/setup to sync the settings FROM. But since sync CAN update the settings, how about giving us a separate way to do the same via an exported file????

Please? Sure would make my time to install and set up a LOT easier.

Windows 10 gesture two finger swipe left and two finger swipe right doesn't work in Firefox. Two finger swipe left allows user to go history backward and two finger swipe right allows user to go history forward. These gestures work in Firefox if the user hold Alt key and preform the gestures. But most of the users don't like to hold Alt key and preform the gestures. Please fix that issue.

One of the reasons I'm still using 56 is that the start page preference and home page preference are separate. I can set the browser to start with a blank page, but then if I wish to quickly go to my home page I can just click on the icon in the address bar. Don't know why this feature was downgraded in the new versions, but I'd like to update - so how can I make this be so in the new version of Firefox? I want to set the start page different from the home page like 56.

I run Firefox, Edge, and IE (rarely) on my laptop. Only Firefox requires Adobe Flash Player because Windows products have a flash player built in to the application. Because Adobe Flash Player EOL is coming up, have Mozilla developers created a work-around so that users can see content after Dec 2020? Sorry if I am unaware of a fix already in place. Thank you.

I'm already using Jscher's excellent UserChrome script to make the folders an attractive yellow, instead of gray. But can this be done for individual foders?
