After the latest update (124.0.2), two of my add-ons (Tapermonkey and Youtube Redux) are not working, even though Firefox says they're enabled, and it is giving no indication that the add-ons aren't working, no pop-ups to enable some permission for these extensions. Both of them reformat the layout of websites to make them more usable, and using sites without them is basically impossible for me. I have tried:

  • Restarting Firefox
  • Disabling the add-ons, refreshing, enabling the add-ons, and refreshing again
  • Checking for add-on updates (everything is updated)
  • Deleting and reinstalling the add-ons
  • Restarting my computer
  • Checking the permissions in the extension menu
  • Turning off all other extensions except for one of the ones with issues
  • Reading through the FAQs and help pages and following the instructions on some of them

Nothing has worked. Every time I reload one of the sites affected by this to check if it's finally worked, the site takes a very long time to load. Since these add-ons are for different websites and both aren't working, I know that the problem is not with the sites themselves. Thank you.

When i click on a tab, if I am not perfectly steady at the time of the click, Firefox opens the tab in a new windows. It happens several times a day, it's quite annoying. Searching for solutions in the support page, I've found that there was an add-on to disable this function, but now it's not available anymore. Is there a solution in 2024?

I went to open a new tab today and suddenly the font or scaling on my menu bar got way bigger. It's extremely annoying, and I can't find any way to re-scale it, as all the zoom or font settings seem to affect only web pages, or the scaling of the entire browser window, including content. All the content in a browser window is fine, its ONLY the menu bar. I wonder if I hit a hotkey by accident when trying to open my tab (I used CTRL+T, but it's possible I accidentally hit another key instead or in addition to) but it's driving me up the wall.

I've always liked the Firefox New Tab page, with Pocket, and until today, DarkReader plugin has always worked. But now it says that it can't because the page is protected.

I tried the solution to use bookmarklets, suggested in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1350781, but it didn't have any effect (https://sanketmehta7.github.io/DarkMode-JS-BookMark/

If I can't find a solution, I'll just ditch Pocket, and use Google as my first page, or something. Or maybe ditch Firefox, which doesn't seem to think that dark mode is important. I don't like being blinded by the light.

Is there any way to make Firefox show the "back", "forward", "reload", "bookmark" buttons that are shown in the default context menu when right clicking a web page also in the context menu that is shown when right clicking an image?

I think those buttons should always be included in all context menus opened for a web page, no matter if you happen to click on the background, on selected text, on an image or a link because.

It is so frustrating having to open the context menu multiple times to find a location where the default context menu is opened instead of the specific ones for selected texts, images, links etc.

Thanks!

Hi. I was just looking at Google Photos on both Firefox and Chrome. Chrome had a bigger picture because the window had only the tabs bar and the address bar, and Firefox has an additional title bar. I was wondering if it would be possible to remove the title bar so the picture on both browsers were the same size?

I installed one of the ad blockers, I can't remember which one. It's given me so much trouble that I thought to disable or delete it. I deleted the little icon ( a stop sign) that shows up on the far right of one of the menu bars (don't know the name of that bar but here it's the second one down). But websites still complain that I have an ad blocker. I've gone to 'add-ons and themes' but I can't find it. BTW, what's the difference between an add-on, a plug-in and an extension? Which one of those are ad blockers? How can I see and then delete whichever blocker I still have? Without the icon I can't even disable it for individual sites.

I want to use a key to open Speed dials in the same tab and same key with 'Shift' to open that speed dial in a new tab.

My favourite were Ctrl+1, 2, 3, 4 ... and so on. And when I used Ctrl+Shift+1, 2, 3 etc, then they opened in a new tab. But now the Ctrl+1, 2, etc are focusing already open tabs. How to revert to old behavior of these shortcut keys?

I've read several articles on using extensions like 'Shortkeys (Custom Keyboard Shortcuts)', but those don't let me use C+1, 2, etc. Also another method of using to js files (auto.js something) doesn't seem to do this job, as I think that would only disable some KeySrtcs altogether.

Hello,

We are adding accessibility features to the Emmabuntüs Debian Edition 5 Linux distribution based on Debian 12, and we would like to use the reading mode included in Firefox to enable smoother voice reading for visually impaired people.

Currently we are going to use the Svox Pico and eSpeak speech synthesis at the same time because in SVox Pico we do not have all the voices we need for our possible users, particularly Portuguese.

We have found how to make the synthesis used by Firefox's reading mode be SVox Pico by default instead of eSpeak, however this requires a modification in the /etc/speech-dispatcher/speechd.conf file.

To do this, simply put the default pico synthesis in this file:

DefaultModule pico

But this causes problems with other software that we intend to use.

We found how to make all the voices of a speech synthesis appear in the Firefox playback menu by going to about:config and doing a search for the word "narrate":

Option narrate

On the other hand, we cannot find how to modify the "narrate.voice" option to tell it to default to pico speech synthesis instead of eSpeak synthesis which is the first synthesis loaded by speech-dispatcher, because we must keep eSpeak as the first synthesis loaded and do not put a default synthesis in speechd.conf to maintain compatibility with software that we wish to use.

Do you have any tips or a manual that explains the possible options for the "narrate.voice" option?

Thanks in advance for your help.

After I let go a new window is created for that tab that I dragged, however it also maximizes the window, which disorients my work flow. Is there any way I can detach a tab into a new window and not have it maximized automatically?

EMBARRASSINGLY I REALIZED WHAT I NEEDED TO DO. THIS IS THEREFORE NO LONGER NEEDED TO BE ANSWERED, SO YOU CAN SIMPLY MARK IT SOLVED IF YOUD LIKE. THANKS!

I chose to reinstall Firefox browser in order to start over fresh and ensure a security refresh. Once installed, I created an entirely new Mozilla account with new info. However, when I go up to the top right of the browser and click on the little icon of the circle with a bust in it (the Account icon), it simply opens the preferences and related settings, it does not allow me to sign in to any account, nor does it show if I am already signed into any account. Is this a malfunction of the iteration I installed, or am I misunderstanding something?

Thanks in advance for your help!

PS attached is what page I am shown when clicking the aforementioned icon

When attempting to install an extension and clicking on "Add to Firefox" the button is replaced with a "Cylon" throbber and the popup dialog asking to confirm the install never highlights the "Add" button. The browser will stay in this state indefinitely until the tab for the extension install is closed.

Could this be a permissions problem involving the ".mozilla" directory tree in the home directory? I've been having this problem regardless of the FF version for some time (going back to at least v110.x). The recent issue involves that 115.9 ESR version installed in Debian Bookworm.

TIA...

Hello all...

This one has been driving me a bit batty as of late. I tend to use lots of extensions/add-ons and for most of them, I want the icons to show on the tool bar - that is, the part to the right of the URL/search bar. It used to be that you could adjust the size of your URL/search bar to make it smaller so that more add-on icons could be displayed - but as of recently, that is no longer possible (at least from what I can gather). Right now, I only have 10 add-on icons showing to the right of my URL bar and I have no clue how to access the other add-ons/extensions that I would like to use.

If I can recall correctly, at one time there was a way to show the additional extension/add-on icons in something called an overflow bar - but I can no longer find that, and half of the add-ons I want to access, I cannot do it because they are no longer shown to the right of the URL bar (except for the 10 that are there now).

So my questions are:

How can I resize the URL/Search bar to make it smaller width-wise, so that perhaps, more add-on icons will show to the right - and/or how can I access the rest of my add-ons if they are hidden in some kind of overflow bar?

I have included a screen shot on my current view, showing the add-on icons (some of them) that show to the right of the URL bar - but I have at least 10 others that I cannot find anywhere and would like them to show also.

Thanks in advance...

Ben
