I am highly distractable by screen movements of any kind, and prefer that nothing on my screen moves unless I ask it to--no autoplay or running ribbons of text or even slideshows with pictures slipping past each other unless I specifically click to make something move. But none of the adjustments I've found in about:config have stopped the snowflakes that drift down across the screen on

during December. I'd like to stop them in my viewing but not be the killjoy that demands they be taken down for everyone, because lots of people actually like them.

Any suggestions on what setting to tweak for this?

The search engines I've added do not appear in the list after clicking the green + sign in the search box and they do not appear in the list in the options either. I used the "add more search engines" found in the bottom of the search engines list to find the missing engines and add them again, but when I find the engine I want to add there is only the "remove" button. So this tells me the missing engines in the list are still there but not accessible. I tried removing the added search engine and then adding it again but this did not make them appear in the search engine list. Everything was working fine until getting the last update before Firefox 89. Is there a way to fix this???

Hello, I need your help with removing a duplicate bookmark star from the URL bar, please. The thing is I already have moved it to the top left corner just as I prefer. However, the star in the URL field is impossible to kill. I have tried to use the customization menu but it does not allow me to drag off this annoying URL star. And, even if I right-click it in hope to find something like "remove/hide the Bookmark star" this star does not react to right-clicks. Also, after some research I have not found the way to do it via about:config :-( _

  Can you help me remove the star in the URL bar? The star in the top left corner though should stay because this is where I need it, but the star in the URL bar should go away.

PS this problem appeared after the "wonderful' June GUI redesign. Before that I was able to remove the star easily from the address bar. I am attaching a screenshot below:

On Firefox 90 on Ubuntu 20.04, when a site asks for camera and microphone permissions, it’s not possible to select any device anymore. It just shows the default camera and the default microphone.

Earlier Firefox releases used to show a selection list for the camera and also another one for the microphone.

My default camera is the one built into the laptop and I would like to use an external one that has adequate picture quality.

Can you please help selecting a camera with the new Firefox?

Firefox used to have an 'email link' menu option, which would open the email program defined in the Firefox preferences. In my case Gmail. This option has been replaced by the 'Share' menu options, where choosing 'Mail' opens Apple's mail program, not the Gmail which is my preferred e-mail client. I'm using MacOS 11.6. The 'Share' menu options are Apple system extensions and I can't see a way to add Gmail to those. Does anybody have a solution?

when I click on a PDF on a website, Firefox does what is specified under Settings/Applications for "Portable Document Format (PDF) (application/pdf)". I prefer to open the PDF in the Adobe Acrobat Reader, but apparently, the browser prefers to save PDF files. When I save my preferences "open with Adobe Acrobat Reader", it does that, but the next day, it tries to save the PDF again. This has been so for a long time. An overlooked bug or a feature?

I've browsed through a dozen of posts now and so far got my homepage to show me my local file. The problem is that I want this local file to also show when I open a new tab (Ctrl+T).

I've configured an autoconfig based on another post I read, currently have this:

In my autoconfig.cfg: // first line is a comment var {classes:Cc,interfaces:Ci,utils:Cu} = Components; var newTabURL = "path_to_my_file.html"; aboutNewTabService = Cc["@mozilla.org/browser/aboutnewtab-service;1"].getService(Ci.nsIAboutNewTabService); aboutNewTabService.newTabURL = newTabURL;

In my autoconfig.js: // pref("general.config.filename", "autoconfig.cfg"); pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); //pref("general.config.sandbox_enabled", false);


I have the last line commented because it worked for the poster, but it gives me an error that firefox couldn't load my autoconfig and that I should contact my sysadmin, lol. Other than that error message, it worked the same as it does now after I closed the popup.

If possible I don't want to use any extensions for this.

Hiya there,

I work in customer support myself and was using Auto Text Expander for firefox by "Pete". Yesterday this firefox update has caused me to lose all of my data, completely putting me back to square 1 and affecting my performance.

On top of that, for the first time since working here I had to create some account when I was already logged in, help

I need you to please restore my shortcuts as soon as possible!

I look forward to hearing back from you so I can get this sorted please!
