Hello, I have recently tried to install a couple different add-ons and the same thing happens each time; once I click "Add to Firefox," the little blue ball goes left to right but nothing ever happens beyond that. I have the most recent version of the browser and have never had any issues prior. I do not have a VPN running or any other software interfering my connection. All other website and downloads seem to function normally. Can someone shed some light on what's going wrong here?

I had an internet addiction so to cut my impulsive triggers I need to change website behavior. Sure I know there is plenty of extensions but I don't want to install something for just creating one rule.

Candidate solutions - userscript options - about:config options

Restrictions - cross platform - browser level

Is there something? Thank you.

Hi! So, I just wanted to ask, is there any way to change the background in Firefox's "New Tab"? I think it is better to have something different instead of a blank and light/dark background.

I would love to find out, because Google Chrome has that feature, but I still wanna use Firefox.

See you later and thanks for any help!

I was using Kesselberg's Conex add-on for years because it most closely approximated the functions of the old Tab Groups in Firefox. It worked great until the latest Firefox update, but now it's broken, and he hasn't updated it since 2019, so I think it's a dead project at this point.

I've tried Simple Tab Groups and found it pretty useless for my purposes. I've been experimenting with Tab Stash and it's a little better, but still really not what I want.

I want something at least similar to Conex: an icon up top that I click to get a dropdown menu of all of the groups that I've set up, maybe with a search box to find tabs that I've forgotten which group they're in.

Does anyone know of anything like this that still works?

Can you make the address bar not add autocomplete suggestions in the address bar where you're typing, but still put the suggestions dropdown list right below the address bar?

I know you can do a workaround every time you use the address bar but I use address bars dozens or hundreds of times a day and I would like the address bar to work like I want without having to do dozens or hundreds of workarounds a day.

While there are some things I like about FireFox, I use another browser for the vast majority of my browser use... I'm running Linux, and it seems that FireFox has locked itself in as the default browser... Since I am unable to modify that condition, is my only recourse to uninstall FireFox? Or, am I missing some secret handshake?

How can I get the english wikipedia back instead of the search page of the infamous sleazy big company?

My distribution updated Firefox from 78.13.0 esr to 91.2.0 esr.

At each larger update Firefox deletes the search engine for the English language Wikipedia -- maybe because my interface languge is German and I have the German language Wikipedia installed. Up to now it offered in the search field to add the English Wikipedia when I was on this page. But not anymore.

When viewing a pdf there can be links to different parts of the same pdf. Is there a way to preview these links instead of clicking them and losing my place in the pdf? Perhaps through mouseover, like if I mouseover a link to a previous paragraph in the pdf it shows me a box with a preview of where clicking that link would take me to the document?

I had Fast Close Tabs addon for Firefox 56 but it does not work in newer FF versions. The addon changed FF's window close button behaviour so that when pressing the window close button only the current tab was closed. This was very convenient and fast way to close a tab because it did not require careful mouse aiming (when window is maximized) or keyboard shortcut. Just move mouse pointer to top right corner of the screen and click.

My understanding is that it is not possible to do similar addons anymore. But I was wondering is it possible to get similar behaviour by using firefox autoconfig file?

There are two events that I have found: - quit-application-requested - browser-lastwindow-close-requested

I don't know which one is the correct one and how to change it's behaviour.

I guess I must use Services.obs.removeObserver method but no idea how.

Hi all,

I am a Linux user (Manjaro) and I've been using Firefox for ages now. I got hold of another computer recently, and I just installed Manjaro Gnome on it as well. I started Firefox, and suddenly I see a UI change, which I don't think is an update, but who knows. In this version of firefox the search bar (along with the new tab, refresh, pocket, etc buttons) are abobe the tab list (which spans the full width). You can see it here https://imgur.com/a/idqp5jb

Moreover, i tried changing themes via the Add-ons Manager and they can't be applied.

When using the Troubleshooting mode, Firefox is back to normal! But in normal mode it is not, so I am not really sure what the problem is. I would be thankful if you could tell me how to fix this.

Hi, I just would like that whenever I open the browser, it would open my saved homepages. If I turn off the computer without closing firefox then the next time I open the browser it will load my previous session. I dont want to load my previous session, I want it to open my homepages every time. I have already unchecked "restore previous session" in the options. It only works if I close the firefox before turning off the computer. Just, please, tell me which option I should uncheck in about:config.
