Hello! I am using the following code (userChrome.css) to color the individual folders created on the toolbar and it works great;

#PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item[container][label="Music" i] {background-color: #ff0545 !important;}
#PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item[container][label="NewsPapers" i] {background-color: #386bff !important;}
#PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item[container][label="News Video" i] {background-color: #386bff !important;}
#PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item[container][label="TV" i] {background-color: #ff1fc8 !important;}

What I am trying to find, is how to change the color of the individual folder name (text) from white to maybe black, yellow, etc.….

Any suggestion is appreciated. Regards,

I selected "Tips and Tricks" because I always feel like everyone seems to understand the answers and I do NOT.

I have and donated to Firefox since it began. I think it is a great idea. I have severe dyslexia and ADHD.

I keep add-ons to a minimum and my home page free of everything. I use menus to find what I need. Having short-cuts all over is too distracting. When FF is not available and have to use another browser, I find it very difficult: they are loud, busy and ads are all over.

I am finding "help" more and more difficult to understand. Do the folks realize that I don't use computers all day long? That some people don't use the same definitions as people who work with computers? (I tried to find the meaning of "default" with 0 results, phrased the question many ways.)

I am hoping a beginners guide review would help, as thing have changed since Firefox was new or "Firefox for Dummies" was written!

Is is/are there basic manuals? Please help. ("Please don't respond with what help are you looking for" - that will not help the next problem).

Firefox can take screenshots of pages or screenshots of custom areas of pages.

According to the documentation, when we download the image, the filename should follow the pattern: Screen Shot yyy-mm-dd at hh.mm.ss.png. If I use the :screenshot at the console, the pattern works as documented.

But Firefox is using a different pattern when I choose Take Screenshot from the context menu. The pattern includes the page's title. Example: Screenshot 2024-04-14 at 18-35-16 General ‹ Settings ‹ Geomaster Lda — WordPress.png.

Since the page title can have non common filename characters, I have problems with such filenames. My uploads to MediaWiki fails with such filenames. I know I can report or improve MediaWiki, but my question here is quite simple.

Can I change the Firefox's default pattern for Take Screenshot's downloads?

I have searched for "How to share tabs between profiles" in firefox.

I was offered this option:

Share multiple tabs

   Visit the tabs tray by tapping the number next to the address bar, this number shows how many open tabs you have:
   Tap the three-dot menu button in the tabs tray.
   Select Share all tabs.
   The list of tabs to be shared will appear.

Visit the tabs tray - not very clear. by tapping the number next to the address bar - which number? I have more tabs that can fit across the screen and am not seeing any number/s.

Could someone help me with this please? I have a lot of migration to do.

Hi,

is there a way to stop a website to automatically forcefully boot me to their main page after like 1sec?

In my case its this Link: https://multiversus.bugs.wbgames.com/bug/MVS-1-3162 It straight up throws me back to the original website after being able to see it for probably less than a second.

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

When I type a letter in the URL space, there is a drop down selection of previous sites I have used. Some contain names of people I have searched and I don't want any embarrassment if said persons happen to use my PC. Is it possible to delete the list, or, perhaps better, delete the ones with names?

I'm using Windows 10 with FF x64.

Thanks.

I want to be able to type accented characters while I'm using a mail tool in Firefox. I searched and found the Office/Word method, but that doesn't work in FF. When I searched this site for "type accent," nothing was found.

I don't need a special language pack, I'm still typing in English. I just want a way to insert an accented character now and then.

There's a site I use frequently that downloads .htm files to my computer every time I open it in a new window. The site does not have a settings page to turn this feature off. It also functions exactly the same once the file is deleted, and it only recently started doing this. I trust that the files are not malicious, but I also find it annoying to manually delete them every single time.

Is there a way within Firefox to block specific sites from downloading content?
