I have a working FF installation with a group of tabs. I have a Pale Moon installation with its own group of tabs, I would like to stop using PM and install a 2nd FF installation to a unique program folder so it has its own unique profile, so I can import the bookmarks, tabs etc, from PM, which will let me have 2 FF browsers open at the same time, loaded with two different sets of tabs.

I read that if I install a 2nd FF to a unique *program folder by **entering that during the install, setting this up would be straightforward. So I downloaded a FF installer, ran it, and it installed FF without asking me where I wanted to install it!

Can I force the FF installer to give me the option of selecting a custom program folder?

I was trying to move it and I accidentally deleted it. I would like to reinstall it. I cannot seem to find the right phrase to find it on your sight and do a reinstall. If you would be so kind to point me in the right direction,I would be most grateful. Little updates like this is why I have remained a loyal fan since the Netscape Navigator days.

Thank you for your time.

When i visit microsofts website to download windows 10 iso it redirects me to download the media creation tool which complete bloatware nonsense, the redirect happens because im connecting to their website while using a windows device and their websites knows that by inspecting my useragent, when i visit the same website from a virtual linux machine im not redirected and can directly download the iso, this is utter bullshit obviously. is there any extension or a config tweak that i can use to temporarily edit my useragent so websites beleve im using linux while im using windows and vise versa?

Is there a way to disable the new tab button's container context menu? The menu pops up when the new tab "+" icon is right clicked, as well as when left click is held down for one second on the "+" icon. I've disabled everything in about:config that contains the word "container" and that did not remove the context menu. I do not use containers and do not want that context menu popping up when I accidentally do one of the two things that trigger it. I've included a screenshot of what I want to disable and circled it in red.

Firefox version 106.0.1

Thanks!

Greetings!

I would like to be able to open selected links via the search tool with CTRL + Enter, like it is possible on most browsers. Basically, I do CTRL + F, select a text which brings me to a link I was looking for, and do instantly CTRL + Enter to open this link. Currently, this shortcut only toggles the ability to see all matched texts and doesn't open the link.

Do you know if it's possible? Thank you!

Hi folks, I had a problem with this back in June 2021 when my previously black background to the menu bar (bookmarks etc) changed to a washed out grey. Chris Ilias and dbben both replied, and Chris sent me a video guide on how to install Photon Colours, which fixed the problem, thanks. However, today the same problem has re-occurred - ie grey background. Unfortunately, when I checked in the Themes menu I found that Photon Colours is no longer there. Grateful if you could tell me if there is a new fix for this so that I can re-instigate the black background to the toolbar. Many thanks Chris

Hide Tab bar if there is only one tab

Hello!

I have been using this userChrome.css code to hide the tab bar if there is only one tab (on Windows):

tab:only-of-type, tab:only-of-type + #tabs-newtab-button {

   display: none !important;

}

#tabbrowser-tabs, #tabbrowser-arrowscrollbox, #tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-arrowscrollbox {
   min-height: 0 !important;

}

Since one of the recent Firefox updates, this code does no longer work. Maybe because there is a new element in the tab bar: A drop-down list at the right.

Any idea how to make the above code work again?

I'm currently attempting to try out userChrome.css customization, but my profiles folder doesn't exist (I'm on windows 10). Trying to open the folder gets me the message that "[Folder name] is unavailable," and when I try to navigate there by getting to the appdata\roaming folder, there just isn't a Mozilla folder at all.

I've already tried a few things, specifically:

- making an account via typing firefox.eve -p into the windows + r folder
- I've never deleted anything from the appdata roaming folder, so I wouldn't have accidentally deleted it
- restarting my computer (+ updating windows)
- reinstalling firefox

I did attempt to show hidden file extensions in windows as well. Admittedly I'm not entirely sure if that worked, but it was something I tried. I've also attached images of my appdata roaming folder (the section of it which should have a mozilla folder), and a pic of the message I get when I try to open the folder.

Any help would be appreciated!

I set my browser theme to a customized green theme I made myself with firefox color, then I decided I wanted something different and installed a new theme from the addons page. It works until I close firefox, but if I open it again it changes back to the custom one I made? I can't find any settings that fix this and i don't want to delete the custom themes I made just to be able to use one of the addon themes I have saved.

So I just updated to version 106.0.1, and I noticed something new in the far right corner of the screen, an arrow with a dropdown function listed as view all tabs. I have no need for this and tried to use the customize toolbar option to remove it. It did not work. How do I get rid of this thing? It's just kinda taking up space on the screen as I doubt I'm ever gonna use it.

Any tips here?

Hi!

I hardly use tabs, and I have a widescreen notebook. So one of the most important features a browser must have is not to waste vertical space.

Unfortunately, Firefefox still has always tab bar open even if there is only one tab.

There was a css code to overcome this problem. Unfortunately, it does not work with FF 106 anymore (another one stopped working with 103). It always shows a "+" sign and uses vertical space.

1. ) How can I get rid of the tab bar? Is there a working css code or is it a feature now of FF? 2.) BTW, also one of the most important addons for me "I don't care about cookies" is not working anymore 3.) How can I fully stop updates? They are causing far too many problems 4.) I already know that css and addons are not officially supported by Mozilla.
