When did this go away? I *LOVED* that ability.

Update: Firefox randomly glitched and wouldn't allow any kind of click-and-drag behavior anywhere on URL or bookmark bar. Required clearing cache to fix, process restart didn't fix it.

scroll bar - how to change the alternative super thin scroll bar back to the default scroll bar?

Recently, I was on a web page and did something that caused the scroll bar to change from the default scroll bar to a super thin scroll bar with no up or down arrows at the top and bottom of the scroll bar. How do I make this page look like the default?

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.

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 am not sure if this has been asked or not. My question is this for the bookmarks toolbar drop downs, the color is grey, which I have trouble reading sometimes. Is there anyway to change that color to make it a darker background? Are there any other options out there to change to color scheme even just a black background with white lettering?

Thanks.

Now it's Bing as search engine,no Firefox page and I can't change it. Tried change search engine but couldn't change it and can't get Firefox page back. Does anyone know how to fix this? I wish Microsoft would stop trying to shove there stuff down our throats. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks Bob
