I saw many discussion forums: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1212834, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1211433 . But none of them, helped me. They said that it needs an add-on. But the question arises - Why Mozilla is not adding this feature?. I have got some api(s) too (If it helps any Firefox Developer to build the feature in Firefox and give it in future releases. See this api: https://pdfcrowd.com/doc/api/ . There is an open source too : https://wkhtmltopdf.org/ . Please add them I beg your pardon !

What I would like is to have a keyboard shortcut when I highlight text to search the text in the default search engine. The next fastest option is to right click (after highlighting) and press S, or click 'Search DuckDuckGo for "selected text"'.

I couldn't find the suggestion box so I'm posting here. I think it would be a good idea to put another option under "Default Search Engine Choose the default search engine to use in the address bar and search bar" to have the option of making the default search engine for the search bar different from the default search engine for the address bar. As of right now you have two search bars that use the same search engine by default and waiting for the drop down to appear to change the search engine for the search bar is a pain in the ass.

Lots of sensitive stuff in places.sqlite file.

%AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*|places.sqlite

It stores favorite icons, input history, keywords, and browsing history (a record of visited pages). I like to wipe this file since it holds lots of sensitive data, but deleting this file will also delete the bookmarks. I think bookmarks should be stored in a separate file.

I have many bookmarks in many folders. When I Show-All-Bookmarks then search them with search bar at top of page, the results list doesn't show folders. I'd like to see folder name to know what folders the bookmarks are in without having to hunt for them in the folder pane on the left. A folder name column on the right would be a huge help and make it so much easier to organize. Is there a way to do this?

How to selectively block ANY slide-in, pop-in, or other nuisance that comes on screen, by choice, without causing items such as video not to run

There is a new kind of pop up nuisance. The slide or fade in. Some are set to mouse movement, others are timed. Need to be able to selectively block these - my choice of which - without sites becoming useless.

Tried NoScript but too complex and there is no succinct documentation from the producer. Tried AdBlocker but it does not work on most of these kinds of popups and the company is not about working with users to block these from many sites, suggesting the sites have paid AdBlock not to block their trash. Looked at other "solutions" but many are expensive and don't promise specifically to block these kinds of nuisances.

One of the main sites with these nuisances is CNN. Their pop-ins keep coming back even when you X them off. Some are on EVERY page, like the cookie agreement, while others are timed and block your reading altogether. You can't move your mouse in certain places on the page without something sliding in or popping up. There are pop-ins when one reaches the end of a page, gets near the edges. They are ALL intrusive! What this does is turn one off to what the ad is there to push. Lot of people have long been fed up with nags after the refusal to follow an ad. When a user says no, that needs to be it. There should be no further question.

Too many sites use this nuisance advertising, many of them because there is little to no way to block them. The internet is built on forced advertising. This needs to stop. If a product is worth its salt, it will sell without being pushed in a customer's face. If a customer says NO once, that should be enough. No site should be able to block access because of a user refusing to submit to some ad.

Since I help a lot of folks to set up Firefox, and customize the settings a lot, it would be great to have a way to export and import those custom settings. Sync is no help as they don't have an account/setup to sync the settings FROM. But since sync CAN update the settings, how about giving us a separate way to do the same via an exported file????

Please? Sure would make my time to install and set up a LOT easier.

Hello,

I'm using Containers and am able to log into different gmail accounts simultaneously.

However, I'm curious as to whether or not it would be possible to link a specific account to a specific container? (e.g., my work email automatically logs into the work container, same for personal email).

I use LastPass, but would Firefox passwords work to make this process more automatic? I set "Gmail" to automatically open in my "work" container, but it takes me to the landing page and requires me to sign-in every time.

Perhaps, I should just stop clearing my history/cookies and just hide the containers instead so the data is saved and I remain logged in. I am curious if there is another solution that I'm overlooking. (I would be down to help build one, too!)

Since I'm sharing all bookmarks between my firefox for desktop and firefox in my android smartphone, I use to take all my bookmarks in the menu bar of my firefox for desktop, then accessing bookmarks from firefox in the smartphone by selecting "desktop pc bookmarks" > "bookmarks menubar" > ... What I don't like at all is firefox always opening bookmarks selection menu in its "root" folder, so that I always have to navigate the bookmarks selection menu to go to the last used bookmarks folder. I suggest firefox for android to retain last selected bookmarks folder, like chrome does! (much smarter behavior)

This is for the mozilla firefox developers: I wonder why firefox is getting less and less customizable by default as it was in earlier days. Now with Firefox 65 again you repeadedly change a lot so we have to look around for new tuning tips again, that is no fun!

Please, implement a customize option to get the Tabs bar on Bottom (under the bookmarks toolbar) without having to tune the chrome.css, also tab height and width should be customizable for everyone. For all users. Also the functions how tabs and links open is too less so we always have to install addons or tune about:config if possible. Like: - New tabs from all entries url bar, searchbar, bookmarks - open tab (also new ones) next to current

Firefox should be different from chrome and other browsers and should give the user more options to customize. Thanks Claudy


Thanks

When viewing a picture in Firefox, it used to display the picture itself as a bookmark/favicon in its tab. That was super useful for anyone working with multiple tabs of pictures. But it stopped working somewhere between versions 62 and 63. Now it won't show anything or, at best, just the website's favicon if it's an online picture (please refer to the attached picture). How can I get that feature working again?

Note: "browser.chrome.favicons" doesn't exist in "about:config" in current version. So I guess solutions involving it won't work.

Was using Lubuntu for years on old hardware, then OS got corrupted. Chgd Distro to "AntiX" which worked for a few weeks, then FF quit loading Tags (blue dot just goes back & forth but no load). Bought a new computer meantime but would like to keep old stuff running and most of all clean out the anti-captialist propaganda garbage than landed in my FF synch account, including loops. An add-in that kills loops and moves all bookmarks to the bookmarks bar would be helpful. Presumably it was 'AntiX' that put the propaganda in my FF bookmarks, but bookmarks, if a directed graph, seems susceptible to loops and should have defenses against loops so once garbage like Anti-X's gets in, it can be cleaned out. Cryptically, my FF account asked me today to verify my home country (!) -- which I did (USA). Help appreciated, but if too much trouble would like Synch account destroyed so I can start a new one with same email. Also years and years and years ago I had an early Synch account with the same email address, so if it's calusing trouble, it can all be wiped out. Having to write this from some other browser on a new computer. Thanks!

Using POST as http method is more secure than GET. Pretty much everyone can agree on that. I know that the search engine DuckDuckGo is having this option and you can configure it in their website (duckduckgo.com). Also Tor browser have built in option to use POST as a native method when searching from the address bar, and I think Firefox should add this as well. What do you guys think?

I want vertical tabs on the right and vertical bookmarks on the left ALL THE TIME. LEFT and RIGHT are important here, and should not be disregarded. It was perfect back in firefox 4x, but then something happened. I have something like 700 bookmarks, and it takes forever for them to load from the 'bookmarks' button. I export them to html, which file I use as a home page, but the vertical list on the left is better.

Whenever i create an account anywhere, i use an email address with a tag unique to the service appended to the end. For instance, the email address I used here is firstname.lastname+mozillasupport@gmail.com. I do this to be able to automatically put incoming emails in various buckets, and also to be able to mute emails from specific senders or see which services sell my address on to spam spewers.

In firefox monitor, this creates a problem, because as far as Firefox is concerned I use hundreds of different email addresses, whereas in reality they are all the same address just with different tags.

So I would be massively helped by the following feature: When you add an email address to Firefox Monitor, there is a checkbox that says "Include address variations". When adding the address firstname.lastname@gmail.com with the checkbox checked, any variation of that email address should also be considered added, e.g. firstname.lastname+dropbox@gmail.com firstname.lastname+netflix@gmail.com firstname.lastname+hbo@gmail.com

Bonus feature: Support for service specific quirks - the checkbox would also be aware of quirks various email providers have. E.g. for gmail addresses the dots are optional. So when adding the address firstname.lastname@gmail.com with the aforementioned checkbox checked, the address would also match firstnamelastname@gmail.com.
