Hi everybody. Thanks in advance for your help.

I'm on Win 11 23H2, and I'm currently running Firefox 88.0.1 x64. Why? Because it's heavily customized to suit my needs. Some examples:

  • Extensions (e.g. Classic Theme Restorer)
  • userChrome.css and userContent.css customizations ( https://github.com/aris-t2/customcssforfx ), which include tabs on bottom (mandatory for me), tab height/width, and many other things.

I decided a long time ago to stay with v88 because every new Firefox update was breaking things that I needed, and I got tired to spend hours with every new update. If only Firefox devs could find a way to NOT break user customizations with every new update...

Of course I'd like to update my Firefox to the latest version. But I know that it's going to be a nuclear bomb. I already made a test. First I made a backup of my profile folder, then I just updated Firefox. Suffice to say that not only all my customizations disappeared : even my tabs disappeared, and I have dozens of them. So I had to uninstall everything, copy back my previously saved profile folder (because of course it had been modified by the latest version), and reinstall Firefox 88.0.1.

So here's my plan and my question. Would it be possible to have two different Firefox installs (not portable I guess), with two different profiles, running at the same time?

  • Here's how I see it:
  • Download Firefox latest version
  • Close Firefox 88
  • Move profile folder away from AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles, so Firefox latest version can't find it
  • Move Firefox folder (the one within Program Files) so hopefully Firefox latest version can't find it
  • Install Firefox latest version (it then creates a new user profile folder)
  • Start Firefox latest version
  • Move back the old Firefox folder to Program Files (so there will be two different Firefox folders, e.g. "Mozilla Firefox 88" and "Mozilla Firefox")
  • Move back the old profile folder to AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles (so there will be two different user profile folders)
  • Start Firefox 88

Would that work, or am I missing something?

If it worked, then I could keep working on Firefox 88, while gradually customizing Firefox latest version until it's ready to take over.

Thanks in advance for your insights!

Bangirot says technical problems when I want to see my received bankgiro payments. Win10 with Firefox, I can't see payments on that machine for a month soon. I have reinstalled firefox now. Still same result. With Android phone and firefox it works, but without printer. With another browser on Win10 it works, but not with firefox. Swedbank internetbank or bankgirocentralen can't help me. They have not heard of such problems.

Internetbank works, but with their connection to bankgirot it says, tehnical problems. If I login to bankgirot directly, it says tehnical problems.

So far its only the combination with this machine and firefox that gives this result. I haven't tried with another machine yet.

I have used firefox very long time without any problems.

Hello,

I upgraded my FireFox to the latest version 88.0 today, and noticed some changes on right click menu. In the old version, the keyboard shortcut key is a to copy a link, but now it was changed to L. That is really inconvenient. As you know, when you right click a link using the mouse, your right hand is still holding the mouse, and not easy to press the letter L on the keyboard.

The old menu option is "Copy Link Locaton", but the new one is "Copy Link".

Is it possible to customize the keyboard shortcut of right click menu, please?

Thank you! Brian

Hello, I have a very odd problem with my firefox browser. I am running firefox 88 64bit on a 16.04 (I know...) Ubuntu. On certain websites, I have an issue with interactive content: www.leboncoin.fr will not let me login anymore (quite recent) www.decathlon.fr will have trouble displaying user comments, images, let alone placing an order Now and then websites with dynamic content and forms will not load...

I am not sure what is the link between all these but it seems related. I have tried the troubleshoot mode but it does not change anything. At the moment when I need to use these king of website I have to switch to another browser.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi All,

I'm trying to modify various userChrome.css attributes of Tabs in Firefox 109.

However, code that worked in FF 88 is seemingly no longer working.

Is the below code outdated?

I would also like to change the appearance of #TabsToolbar from translucent to either a solid color or a background image. Is that possible? Right now, you can see icons from the desktop through the Tab bar, and there appears to be a strange curved, black overlay colorizing it. See attached screenshot.

Thanks for any input!

/* MISCELLANEOUS TAB ATTRIBUTES */

  1. TabsToolbar { /* tab bar */
 -moz-box-ordinal-group: 3 !important;
 padding-top: 0 !important;
 padding-bottom: 0 !important;
 height: 25px !important;
 background-image: url("bkmr_back.gif");
 border-top: 1px solid #afc0d2 !important;
 border-bottom: 1px solid #8698aa !important;

}

/* Change the color of selected tab */

   .tab-background[selected="true"] {
       background-attachment: none!important;
       background-image: none!important;

background-color: #eef5fc !important; /* background color only, not border */ }

/* Change text attributes of selected tab #8698aa to match bottom tabstoolbar line color */

  1. TabsToolbar .tabbrowser-tab[selected] {

font-weight: 800 !important; color: #000 !important;

       border-top: 1px solid #8698aa !important;
       border-left: 1px solid #8698aa !important;
       border-right: 1px solid #8698aa !important;

}

  1. TabsToolbar .tabbrowser-tab:not([selected]) {

font-weight: 600 !important; color: #000 !important; /* non-selected tab text color */

       border-top: 1px solid #afc0d2 !important;
       border-left: 1px solid #afc0d2 !important;
       border-right: 1px solid #afc0d2 !important;

}

/* Change the color of non-selected tab */

  .tab-background:not([selected]) {
       color: #000000 !important;

background-color: #c7d3e0 !important; }

Permanently pin the tab of an addon

I use the Feedbro-Addon, which creates an own tab. Its url is: moz-extension://285d678c-ecb3-4003-923d-835fc9d8e0bc/reader.html

If I use it as a normal tab (instead of a pinned tab) ... it survives a Firefox restart. But if I use it as a pinned tab (which I want) ... it disappears after a Firefox restart.

I suppose it has to do with it being an addon-page instead of a "normal" page.

Is there a way to make it stay permanently pinned?

I know how to change normal pages css via different tools like Stylus etc. (or via userContent.css). But this does not work for pages created by addons.

Can you please help me?

'Why am I still seeing blinking ads on firefox pages? I thought you totally solved this problem ? I have been using firefox ad blockers for months with great success; but suddenly they stopped functioning efficiently. Since firefox took them OUT OF MY UPPER TOOLBAR SEVERAL WEEKS AGO . 'Thus I have no idea if they are working or not.' There was no announcement of changers or any update that I know of.

Otherwise with no help from firefox, the last resort will be switching to an independent vpn to resolve firefox ad issues... For years I had no issues with firefox or even ad blocking problems; but now ads and firefox's constant need to take TOTAL control of everything has become a major issue.

If all fails, the last hope will be turning to Express VPN...Thanx for any help you can give...rjk

Hello FF community. I come here for a question, maybe a confirmation (I'm gonna try to be as short as possible ).

I'm using for years infamous Aris-t2 customCSS. I'm about to "jump" from FF v88 on my desktop to V115.0.3esr. I tested everything on my laptop, and set everything on the customCSS so it looks like my actual V88. It's almost identical, but one thing is bugging me: the scrollbar.

Scrollbar on FF115 isn't the same anymore than in V88 as you can see on the screenshot I posted (test scrbr for V115, scrbr2 for V88). The clean one with "3lines grab button" I actually use is less "eye catchy" than the new one. I've made some researches, and apparently, starting FF V97 about 2 years ago, scrollbar has been change to use W10 "flat like" one, and at FF106+, every older code was apparently removed. I tried to changed a few things in about:config, like "widget.non-native-theme.enabled" or multiple commands about scrollbar, nothing changed.

So I just wanted to know if someone could confirm me that the old scroll bar I use is now impossible to get back, or if there's a command I miss that could do the thing.

Thanks, have a nice day ^^

If I try to access https://bugs.cacert.org I get an error message: SSL_ERROR_EXPIRED_CERT_ALERT

If I access to the same site with chromium browser, there is no such error message, even more: I can access the certificate with the following information: valid until 2024 (see complete cert as picture).

Why this obviously wrong error message? How can it be circumvented (a warning might work, but a blockade?)?

I am happily running Mac OS 10.13.6 (High Sierra) on my MacBook Pro (mid 2012). This OS allows me to use my many 32 and 64 bit apps and have excellent control of my laptop. My bank is saying that my browser (Firefox 88.0.1) needs to be updated. When I check system requirements at mozilla, any newer Firefox claims to need an intel x86 processor INCLUDING the version of Firefox I am now using. My Mac has an intel Core i7 processor. When I click on about Firefox, I'm offered to update to 109.0.1. Will this update actually work for me without losing any functions I already have? Is there a better choice for my Mac and Firefox?
