When I record screencasts, I don't want people to see what extensions I'm using. For one, it's distracting, for second, it's a privacy issue.

In chrome (iron, opera...) I can quickly drag and resize the extensions area so nothing is seen. Fast an easy.

Is there a way to do this in Firefox. I am open to extensions or keyboard shortcuts as well!

(Pinning to overflow menu is not a solution. It takes many clicks and a long time.)

Thank you for any help.

Hi,

I have been working with the Style Editor from the Developer Tools. As you can see from the screenshot, there's a massive list of style sheets.

I'm looking for a certain style sheet to edit, however the list is not sorted alphabetically. So I don't know how to find the name of my style sheet other than just trying to scroll through the whole list to spot my specific sheet. This every time take hours for me to find what I'm looking for.

Is there any way to find a style sheet in that list faster than manually scrolling through the list? Something like Ctrl + F, or a way to sort that list alphabetically?

Thanks for your help!

Recently, I updated Firefox (as it regularly bothers me to do so) and it added an annoying new feature that appears whenever I type anything into the address bar. It used to just provide search suggestions from my list of bookmarks, but now below the list of search options is a separate segment with "This time, search with:" followed by multiple icons--in my case, Google (my default browser), bookmarks, tabs, history, and settings. And you know how when you're sometimes typing something you want to find and the desired result is toward the bottom of the list, so instead of pressing the down arrow key to get to it, you press the up arrow to start from the end…well now, when I try that on the address bar, it cycles through each icon before letting me get to the list's end.

I know it sounds like a petty complaint, but it's annoying and inconvenient to have to do it each and every time since it's habitual to cycle from top to bottom or vice versa on basically every other search bar. I went the route of "Settings > Options > Search > Search Shortcuts" to see if I could get rid of these icons, but just like how it doesn't let you get rid of search engines when you only have one on the list, it doesn't give you an option to remove these superfluous icons.

These Mozilla dumbasses seem to lack foresight and/or consideration with the way they limit user preferences. Can anybody give me any alternative solutions? Please spare me the snide answers like "switch to Chrome" (already considering it). If there's a way to simply circumvent these icons in the address bar rather than getting rid of them entirely, that would be more that enough: I just don't know how to go about it. Anyway, thank you for taking the time to read my submission/rant.

Hi,

I'm trying to disable the media popup in windows 10, which appears when you lower your volume or skip a song or anything (see added image). I have a brand new pc and on my old pc i was able to fix this easily by doing this: go to about:config and change this: set media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled from true to false.

I did that now, with my new pc as well. But i just does not work, i restarted my browser and pc after changing it, i set it back to true and back to false again, it just will not work.

I googled this issue, but the only solution i find, is what i exactly the thing i described above, nothing else.

Hello,

I have a problem with Firefox. I think this is a bug. I have tested it in Firefox 85, 86 and 87.

When I press Alt, the complete title bar with the menus File, Edit, View, ... appears. Afterwards, when I click Minimize, Maximize, Close, New Tab or List All Tabs, the title bar is minimized again but nothing else happens. Those buttons just don't work.

Is there a way to fix this problem? Is it likely to be fixed sooner than three months/six months/years? Please tell me how I can add anymore useful information. Thanks for your support!

Preferences for PDF files

After Firefox updated to version 86 yesterday a couple of my users are being prompted to select what they would like Firefox to do with a PDF file each time they download one. They set it to open in Foxit Reader and checked the box to do it automatically each time but it always goes back to the default setting. I confirmed that the Application settings in Options is set to use Foxit Reader for PDFs and I even followed the troubleshooting step for this issue and renamed the handlers.json file.

Also each time they try to download a PDF a prompt comes up asking for an admin password (see the 3rd image). These computers are on a domain, so the UAC prompt isn't unusual but we don't restrict them from being able to download files. But I'm having the same issue as well and I'm not on the domain, so I think this is more of a symptom then a cause.

Is this a bug in the latest update? I was troubleshooting a printer setting issue for them the day before yesterday. Did some testing on my computer and theirs, got it worked out that Foxit works best for their needs when printing a PDF from a web app. Then yesterday afternoon they began to have issues where they couldn't print at all. I checked it out and all of our computers updated to Firefox v86 and everything is now working differently now in terms of handling PDFs.

Thanks in advanced,

Josh

Hello

I have installed the dictionary for another language and when I right click the menu is there, however if I try to change the language it disappears. If I click again it's gone.

I have tried that if I disable UBlock Origin, the menu comes up, but I am not able to change language anyway. If I refresh, the menu disappears again.

I think the title says it all: Can't add Firefox to Microsoft Focus Assist Feature (Windows 10)

I like this feature because it lets me disable notifications while filming or working on other projects but currently I cannot add Firefox to the priority list.

It may be a new feature to you (like it was to me) so here's the easiest way to access it.

Focus Assist (Right click on notifications Icon in bottom right corner) > Customize Priority List > Apps

I can add Google Chrome and other web browsers but not Firefox.

Anyone know what this is or how to fix it?

Thanks in advance.

And these are the minor customizable features that I would like to have.
