It use to be after sizing the URL and Search to be even lengths, and then in Customize placing the Reload icon between them, the 2 windows would remain relatively the same length. Now, however when completing the steps the Search window is reduced considerably (see attached). How to get the URL and Search portions more or less equal?

I'm wondering how to configure a default zoom level for all users.

I want

about:preferences -> Default zoom

to have a default value of 133% instead of 100%.

So far I'm using the files

firefox/distribution/distribution.ini

and

firefox/browser/defaults/preferences/all-XXX.js

for configuration, but I don't know which keyword to use. I compared the content-prefs.sqlite file between to test profiles, one having 100% default zoom, the other having 133% default zoom.

The database says there is a setting "browser.content.full-zoom", but I can't configure this with the *.ini or *.js file, or can I?


I also read this:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Preferences/A_brief_guide_to_Mozilla_preferences

but it didn't help.

I want to do not see this small button on each tab in Firefox. Is it possible without addons? I remember that in the past there was an option in about:config for that purpose but I failed to find it now and do not remember how it is called. I don't need this close-button because I managed to close my tabs using various other ways: by Escape, by double left mouse click to a tab, by double right click on web page (everything using AutoHotkey).

Firefox restoring the previous session after the PC boots up

Hello, In Ubuntu 20.04 (Firefox 76), there is this strange bug. Whenever I reboot/shutdown and start my computer, and after login when I open Firefox (after bootup), the previous session (i.e. the session which was present at the time of reboot) will be opened at the same ubuntu workspace location.

Eg. I had 3 tabs opened in workspace 2 and I shutdown my system. Then I again boot into Ubuntu and open firefox (in the default workspace aka workspace 1), the browser will resume its previous state i.e. it will open in the workspace 2 with the 3 tabs open. So this is like a state restore.

I have disabled Restore Previous Session in the "Startup" section of preferences.

I'd really like to get rid of this - it seems to have popped up recently.

On my Mac I am using a Logitech mouse. Nothing fancy. But uniquely in Firefox (68.6.1esr (64-bit)) the thumb buttons don't cause the browser to navigate forward and back through this history, instead it brings up some odd scroll feature to scroll up and down through the page. The navigation function works correctly in Chrome and Safari so this is uniquely an issue with Firefox. Since it is my preferred browser I would like to figure out where to alter this behaviour.

Thanks!

I like Firefox, it's a nice browser and I use it because of the browser policy on privacy and because I like to UI, Firefox decided to make the default search engine Yahoo, (I really don't like how Yahoo finds Searches, and its ads) I shouldn't care much because I can just change the search engine in options, except I can't, I change the default to google, but when I search something it still brings up Yahoo. This is annoying but maybe I could live it by just directly going to google to search stuff, except that doesn't even work when I go to google directly! I am just going to assume this is a bug, but if this is intentional, I don't think I have seen something so petty, so horrible as this to force people to use a search engine they don't want to. I don't like any other browsers other then Firefox but I also don't want to use Yahoo so if there isn't a solution, I guess I will stop using Firefox which is sad because I really like Firefox, but I can't support it if its blocking a search engine I want to use. If there is a solution to this please tell. Thanks!

I use AOL for email (comes with Frontier). When I reply to email, the first few characters are in a larger font, then it reverts to the size I have chosen in my set up. Some times it's just 2-5 characters, sometimes it's almost a whole sentence. I've checked with Lenovo help and AOL help and they haven't been able to fix it. I tried another browser (edge) and the problem didn't occur. This makes me think it may be a Firefox issue. How do I fix it?

I know there is a way to change the settings to force all pop-up windows to open as tabs, but is there a way to change this setting for a particular link that opens as a pop-up? Basically, does Firefox have an option similar to the "show as tab" right-click option in Chrome for pop-up windows?
