Hey team, I would like to know if there is a way to "name" the firefox window? I have multiple theme windows (for instance, one is for all recipes, one is for all news pages, one is for all online classes) with multiple tabs open and would like to find a way to navigate between them in an easier way. Naming them would be lovely, so I could name the window "recipes" and find the right one easier in the dock.

Anyone knows a trick? If it doesn't exist, any way to hint to the developers that this would be helpful? :) It could be just me though :)

Thank you for your thoughts,

Kata

I use `Always ask you where to save files` when download and every time I download something they're always in different places.

The problem is if I rename the file when I forget to rename it before I press the download, Firefox says the file is missing and refuses to tell me where did I save that file. The `Open Contained Folder` is greyed out and I can't find any location related text.

How can I find where did I download my files?

And why `Open Contained Folder` has to be greyed out?

toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart is on "true"

It was working well before I had an update on Windows that crushed my connection to my printer. So I reinstalled W10. I now have version 10.0.19042, n°19042 (according to system information) and I have the last version according to windows update.

Thanks for helping me restoring firefoxe automatical update!

Hi, I dealt with this problem several time and I decided to write down my solution to save of others time. In case you install firefox on Windows 7 and your htm, html files are showing blank white icon instead of little foxxy one, all you need to do to go for registry as below: - I am using Firefox v.84, ues problem is there since firefox v.2 - - Type regedit and go for "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FirefoxHTML-308046B0AF4A39CB\DefaultIcon", perhabs you see a differentt number beside FirefoxHTML or even no number - - Double click on Default key and change the value to "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe,1", not to mention without "" - Don't forget to backup whole your registry before editing it - Restart and you will probably see the Firefox icon on your saved html files

Good luck

Hi, I am setting up a laptop for my wife to replace her old one. I have installed Firefox and found that although the main body text is the correct size, the text on the toolbars is very small compared to her old one. How can I increase the toolbar font size without altering the main body. Thank you, Andrew

I am using the built-in spell-checker. When I right-click on an input field, there is a "Check Spelling" checkbox in the popup menu to enable the spell-checker. Once enabled, another "Languages" item will show up in the popup menu, allowing me to choose from the built-in dictionaries.

This list in huge. Ideally I would prefer if I there was a most recently used list, or I would be able to configure which choices to offer by default, and maybe have an additional menu item to show the rest/all.

Is there any way to handle such use-case? Alternatively, what is the process to raise this as feature request? Would this be a feature worthwhile to do so?

Using Firefox 84.0.2, Mac OS 11.1 Big Sur. When using Amazon Prime Video to access CBS All Access, I open Firefox, go to the proper Amazon Video address, sign in to my account, click the program to be watched, and click the full screen icon *in the video*, but the tool bar does not disappear.

Prior to updating to OS 11.1, this worked perfectly: it would go to full screen.

Now, I need to upon opening the browser, use the Firefox prefs, and click the full screen icon first. Then, when the program screen opens and content is played, I can click the full screen icon *in the video screen* and it makes the toolbar disappear.

Ok, I know this is a first world problem, but I liked the one click approach better than the two click.

Is there a way to get back to the one click solution? It seemed Firefox was remembering what to do before (?) before the update.

Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) for Ubuntu (running Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS)

So when editing text in a textbox on Gmail, I can press and hold [Shift] and then use arrow keys to select text, but I cannot use Page Up/Page Down to select faster as expected. (Works in Chrome)

Background: Trying to trim long email threads to avoid them becoming infinite and causing a quantum singularity close to where I am sitting.

Not sure if this is a Gmail or Firefox issue.

Anyone have any ideas?

Until a couple of weeks ago, Firefox (don't know which version but update is automatic) handled media the way I wanted: videos (e.g. YouTube and other similar sites) did NOT start automatically but after I operated the play control the video started with audio enabled. Then I noticed that on some sites audio was disabled when the video started, so I decided to investigate. After spending HOURS reading all the information, trying out settings described Firefox Support, browsing fora where similar / related issues are discussed, refreshing and - eventually - re-installing Firefox, I just cannot get it to work. Until attempting to get this to work the way it did before, I had NEVER configured autoplay in Firefox options. Not had I EVER configured autoplay for an individual website. So, evidently, I don't understand it. Currently, Firefox 84.0.1 autoplay is set (in options, permissions) to Block audio and video but videos start automatically with audio. No settings for individual websites. What I want is that videos DO NOT start automatically but that audio IS enabled when I start the video. Can anyone advise me how to configure that?
