Hi,

Before updating Firefox yesterday, I was able to see my 2 bookmarks folders in the Firefox toolbar. Now after updating, I need to click a button with 2 chevrons pointing right which then shows me only 1 of my bookmarks folders.

There are actually 2 folders in here, which I can see if I go to the Bookmarks menu, but clicking the chevron button only shows a single folder. However the problem is that up until yesterday, those folders were right in the toolbar itself without any chevron button.

Has there been a change in the latest version? I don't see anything about this in the release notes.

Thanks,

- Tate

I’m currently using Windows 10 Firefox v.124.0.1 and am set to auto update. For some time now I’ve been trying to make use of the option to set homepage as a shortcut folder as described: Settings/Home/Homepage and new windows where one of the options is: ‘Choose a Bookmark to be your Home Page. If you choose a folder, the Bookmarks in that folder will be opened in Tabs.’ You then need to delete the existing homepage and select the desired shortcut folder. This works but after it appears to be a static rather than dynamic selection as regardless of any changes made to the indicated folder, the homepage does not change. Am I doing something wrong or expecting too much. Thanks John

I have 8 windows open all the time on my main Firefox, and switching between them is hard because the name is that of the last tab I used, which might not be very human-readable or might be similar to one on another window. It would be great if I could name my windows! Is there a way to do that? If not, could I request that as a future feature?

If you use Full Screen a lot you'll notice that when your mouse cursor is near the top of the screen it often activates the appearance of the Address and Menu bars and whatever other toolbars you have working. The whole screen suddenly jolts down. Then up as soon as the cursor moves down. I cannot imagine the mindset of the designer that implemented it; must have been someone poor on the keyboard that uses the mouse as much as possible. Alt+D activates the toolbar! We don't need any mouse cursor to display it. Especially as we need to type anyway to use the Address Bar. I searched Add-Ons but couldn't find anything. Any ideas of how to stop the cursor from activating the toolbars? Anything in about:config maybe? Anything I can edit in the files? Please! Let's get some sanity back to Firefox Full Screen.

I Use Mac OS Firefox as my primary client for Gmail, and I always compose emails in a pop-out window. Ever since Firefox 124, these pop-out windows include the tool bar and bookmarks bar, eating up a bunch of space. I do want those bars displayed on my main firefox window, I don't want them displayed on the pop-up Gmail compose windows. Is there anyway to get Firefox revert back to this old behavior?

I'm using Kubuntu which uses the Dolphin file manager as default. When I download a file and use the download status icon at top right to check on a downloaded file "Show in folder" it comes up in Thunar.

A minor thing and it is not stopping me from doing the intended action, but the change throws me even so given I rarely use Thunar. I'm not sure it even gets installed with Kubuntu, but it has some special tools Dolphin does not have so I put it on my machine.

Any way to make Firefox show the location of the downloaded file using Dolphin? Didn't find anything where I looked using about:config

Hail all:

OS: W11Ent_x64 V: 22h2 (b: 22621.3447) FF: 124.0.2 x_64 I tried several "Group Tabs" add-ons, like: Simple Tab Groups. Tab Group. And I few I can't even recall the name from. Yet, none works. Not ONE.

Now, I use Edge as well, on my corporate system that I got from work. Personal PC I use FF on.

But, the Edge Tab Grouping, which allows tabs to be "put to Eco-Sleep", while hidden the open tabs by clicking the Group-Tab Icon, is a feature I sorely miss in Firefox.

Odd, as, so many requested this feature, how come it has not been implemented over the many years of people asking?

Either way: Does anyone know a good, WORKING add-on that does the "Edge Thing" with FF tabs, please? Since, I often got like 200 tabs open, which is a real misery without Tab Grouping and "Hiding".

Thank you aforehand: Ke'Ylan.

Hi I have been a user of Firefox for many a year, and this is the first tme I've come across an intrusive problem. Since updating to the latest version, I find I can no longer change the icon on a URL shortcut. I had quite a few of them, which helped distinguish (obviously) what I might want to select. That was then. Now, I have a load of indistinguishable Fireox logos which make finding the shortcut I want imossible. On going to change the icons, I find the Website Document tab in properties is no longer there .. while I have Firfox installed. Remove Firefox and the capability magically returns. I have re-installed Firefox in case of corruption, with no change. Before I remove Firefox permanently (which I'd be loathe to do), does anyone know the cause ... or solution or workaround?

My problems started after the upgrade to 113 when Firefox would no longer load at all. I tried deleting and reinstalling, but nothing changed until I moved the profile (yeah profile mgr didn't work either). I finally got it to reinstall and ran sync but had to also reinstall my extensions/addons. The extensions appear to be working, but the are not displaying in either the toolbar area or in customizations.

I have tried searching all over and different solutions but thus far nothing has worked. That includes right clicking on the extension and selecting to add it to the toolbar.

I repeat, the extensions appear to be working though I cannot call some of them up (EverNote for example), and I need Lastpass on the toolbar for password generation and to access the vault.

Extensions ARE displaying in Chrome browser.eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Attached is image of customization scree that also shows toolbar area. No addons anywhere.

There is an application which is launched by a script in Firefox. Basically it launches a print job. Unfortunately the application can't launch since Firefox says "User Gesture is Required". We temporarily added a button for a user gesture to be recorded but ultimately we don't want this button here. Is there any setting where we can bypass this "User Gesture is Required" check?

Good day! I trust you all are well. I am using a Kensington Expert Mouse (wired, K64325), and KensingtonWorks application for settings. Although I use the slowest scrolling speed, the scrolling is still very fast i.e. one click is a full screen. In other applications the settings are working well. How can I slow down the scrolling? Many thanks and regards, Konstantin

Updating to version 98.0 onwards Firefox has started saving a copy of every pdf file I view (open) in my downloads folder.

My settings have not changed:

Tools->Settings->General->Applications: - pdf (application/download): Always ask - pdf (application/force-download): Always ask - pdf (application/pdf): Use Adobe Acrobat DC - pdf (application/x-download): Always ask

And when the "ask" dialog pops up, I choose "open".

I have tried all standard methods/troubleshooting, including resetting the handlers.json file.

The only way to avoid getting a copy in the downloads folder is if I choose "Open in Firefox" (application/pdf) instead of "Use Adobe Acrobat DC".

Any solution to this?

Thanks Michael

Before this Firefox update I had an add-on or extension or something where you could click on it and it would close all tabs, but save the links in another tab, by date. Unfortunately I don't remember what it was called.

Thought maybe 'pin' something, but that's basically unsearchable as there is something else called pins.

It was great, cause you could simply go to the tab and see all of the saved links, by date. It opened up every time Firefox started and I never had an issue. Saved HUNDREDS of links and now it's just gone! No history of it existing. How do I get it back??? This is terrible. Tons of work stuff saved there.

-Yes, I understand bookmarks and have plenty of those and they are still there. -Not related to Pinterest, just think it was called Pinned or Pin Something.

TIA!
