For quite some time now I have to notice that Firefox keeps forgetting the addresses of websites that I have allowed to open pop-ups. I used such a pop-up site just yesterday, the computer has in hibernation over night - and now Firefox blocked opening such a pop-up again, the list of allowed sites is empty.

I find that I dislike many of the standard installation configurations. I'm a tech and install Firefox to get users away from those "other" browsers. But there's too much I don't like and it takes me too long to reconfigure each new installation.

So... I'd love to have a configuration script or something that could be run with the Firefox installer, full one if necessary, that would do all the tweaks I do after a new installation.

Examples. Remove all the extra stuff in the area to the right of the address bar. Leave and change download arrow to NOT hide when not currently used. (Who thought of that should be fired). Put old bookmarks icon back in place of other one. Remove the blank spaces on each side of the address bar.

And configure non-default options such as ask where to download instead of default to downloads, load previous tabs on startup, set default home page, disable password remembering, etc.

And, ideally allow installation of add-ons I always utilize like Bitwarden password manager (much preferred to Firefox's storing them), and Adblock Plus.

Any chance of any of this becoming available? Really don't want to use one of the screen recording/macro programs to do it.

Thanks.

Hello SUMO Team!

  I always had this question but never really asked it. Why isn't DuckDuckGo or a more privacy based Search engine set as default? You even have to manually add Startpage and others... 

 It just hurts me how a privacy browser has the Google search engine as default after all, most people come to Firefox for privacy and Google is the opposite. Maybe one of the developers can change that?

Thank you so much for trying to help me and Stay Safe!

I hate it when I click on the url-field and its size change.

It wasn't there in former firefox versions and I did not miss it. It changed some time ago. Any decent software development would have introduced his new feature and provided a "classic" option to turn it off. Not so firefox. Mozilla introduced it and I had to google how to get the old behaviour back. No option.. I have to go to about:config, ignore teh warnings, find some weird options and set them to false and the mozilla turned that off too. Now the was to change it is to set up a css-file, got to about:config again to make firefox actually read that file, place some mystery css-code in there and it still does not work!

Very annoying, an outstanding example of bad practice how to introduce new features and take away users choices.

So: How to stop URL bar from enlarging on click?

A lot of firefox is customizable via userchrome or extensions, however one thing that does not seem to be is the default PDF.js viewer. I would like to continue using it; however, I would like to change the styling on it (specifically I want to change how page breaks are rendered, which I already have the CSS for). Extensions obviously will not work as it is an internal file, userChrome doesn't work (I tried it), and I can't seem to find where the viewer is actually located on my PC (Search Everything brings nothing relevant up for pdfjs, pdf.js, or viewer.html.) Is there any way that I can modify the inbuilt PDF viewer?


PS this is probably unimportant but I noticed that https://mozilla.github.io/pdf.js/web/viewer.html has slightly different CSS from the built in version .

Hi. I reset my Windows 10 last night to fix a glitch (it didn't fix it) and I suddenly cannot see/upload my JPG files online with Firefox. For example, if I click to post a picture to my Tweet, only the PNGs in the folder will appear, despite there being JPGs in it as well. This only happens with Firefox, as Edge and Chrome show/make them available just fine, and they show up on my PC normally. I was told to reinstall Firefox, which I did, but they still don't show up.

How do I fix this?

Fields in fillable forms are invisible in Firefox. They are there, but text titles and where to type don't show. The fields are autofilling (for those fields where auto fill has been enabled), but the info can't be seen. It's impossible to tell where the fields are, or if they have have been filled in or if info needs to be entered. This happens with log in pages as well as pages requiring info for ordering and such.

These features are working in other browsers.

Is there a remedy? Updated recently and do not want to have to reset or do anything drastic.

Asked this two other times, but I tagged on to previous conversations. Unfortunately, I did not get the usual prompt response.

Hi, Currently, it is possible to close tab only from line of Tabs on the top of the window. Unfortunately in this view, it is impossible to see the long name of Tab (in case if you have tens of it) and the user should open each Tab before close it. Would you add functionality to close Tabs from the Tabs dropdown list ( just add X at the right side of each line) or add some Tab Manager view (as you have for Bookmarks) with same close Tab function?

Thank you.
