I am using Firefox 95.0.1 on Ubuntu 20.04. When I want to use an add-on in google docs, I see this error screen in Firefox. Opening the add-on in a separate window does not work either and even if it did, it would be off the purpose of a google doc add-on. How can I solve this problem?

How to make "Say hello to a new Firefox" not appear next time I open Firefox

Hello,

I'm using Firefox 91.4.1esr (64-bit) from Debian repositories on Bullseye. Every time I open Firefox, a window with a greeting message appears ("Say hello to a new Firefox"), and it doesn't matter if, as asked by that window, I choose a theme or not. Is this issue related to my settings? Is this a Debian issue? Is it possible to stop that window from reappearing?

Thanks in advance. And many thanks for making Firefox (I've been using it for so many years I can't recall when I tried it for the first time).

Hi, I have 2 devices on my FF account. A linux mint laptop and a handheld. On a 3rd device (2nd laptop), I just installed a Pop OS distro. When I attempt to sign in to FF on the Pop OS machine, it looks successful but then FF displays a message incorrect password. Below is the email for an old account. I have not used this email in a few years.

How can this be fixed?

Just to check, I did logoff and log back in on the linux mint laptop with no problems.

Thanks, Steve

The documentation says to use F11. F11 was removed from ChromeOS. The Full Screen Button on the keyboard will take Firefox out of full screen, but when you try to use it to put Firefox in Full Screen, the window gets slightly larger, and then goes back to its original size.

Other applications seem to be able to go to full screen using the Full Screen key that are running under Linux. For instance, gvim, thunar, meld, and gnucash all will go into full screen with the Full Screen Key.

A few days ago, I found a theme in the store that I really liked. However, I didn't like one of the colors and wanted to change it. So, after some searching around, I discovered (from this forum, actually) that you can edit the files for themes and extensions if you use an archive manager or file extraction tool like 7zip. Upon doing this, I was easily able to change the few colors I didn't like and save the theme. I have been using it like this for a few days now, until today I alt+tabbed to Firefox and the theme had been disabled, with a message saying it could not be verified for use and has been disabled. Does anyone know how to fix this, and to keep it from happening in the future? If it helps I am using Manjaro Linux, and the theme was Nord Polar Dark.

EDIT: Turns out the problem was in the "digital signing" of the theme, and when I changed the theme, that signature was no longer valid. If you are using Developer Edition, Nightly, or the Extended Support Release, you can stop this by changing xpinstall.signatures.required to "false" in your about:config. Be warned though, as this means any add-on can now be installed, regardless of whether Mozilla has verified its security.

There is a known issue for some i3 users that when we click the right-mouse button, the context menu will pop up in a position where the first item in the menu is already highlighted, so when the right mouse button is released, it automatically "selects" that item. So if we want to copy a link, for example, we have to be careful to move the mouse before releasing the button or that link will immediately be opened in a new tab.

What some of us have done in the past is to create a userChrome.css file setting a top (and/or left) margin for that menu, which fixes the issue.

In the latest version(s?) of Firefox, this no longer works (but other userChrome.css rules I have set up continue to work), so I'm assuming that the ID of the context menus has been changed. What is the ID now?

Hi! I'm using Firefox 95.0 on Linux Manjaro Gnome. For some reason, strange CSS styles began to appear on some sites, making them unreadable. It is not possible to understand where this styles comes from, but definitely not from the site, since in other browsers they are displayed correctly. Here is a link to screenshots from different sites screenshot 1 screenshot 2 What's most interesting - in the Settings What I have tried: - Fonts And Colors section: The checkbox in the "Use system colors" is unchecked The checkbox in "Allow pages to choose their own fonts" is checked - I also tried to clear the browser cache - Also disabled all plugins - Changed the theme to the default one. - Disabled / Enabled "Use hardware acceleration when available" - I think that styles from userContent.css & userChrome.css are applied to sites. And I removed this files from /home/user/.mozilla/firefox/87syjf8o.default-release/chrome How I can fix this?

Hi, I have an issue with making the separators in the bookmark toolbar drop-downs visible. I am running Firefox 95 with the Quantum - dark Blue theme installed. I am running Linix Mint Uma.

The dropdown have separator - space - but no line showing that there is a separator. I have tried many ways to make the separators visible and with light-grey colouring in the userChrome.css file but nothing changes.

Anybody have any idea what can be done or where I might change the Quantum-DarkBlue coding to incorporate the visible separators?
