There is no option to turn off https-only mode in preferences under security. I am running Firefox on Kali Linux. I need to be able to access http sites. So I did the about:settings and set everything that was https-only to false. Yet I still get the "unable to connect" and when you click on the i icon it says "connection not secure" I know it is not secure and it does not need to be. Is there anyway to get the latest version of firefox to go to http sites? There are some important plugins I use with burpsuite and I don't want to have to use a different browser. I know what the documentation says but there is no https-only mode option.

Hello,

after a power outage on my Win 10 machine my Metamask-CryptoWallet-Addon doesn't work any more [according to Google it's a known problem for 3 years...].

I have backups of C: and restored all Folders with "Firefox" in the path, e.g. C:\Users\ ...\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox... (including the file webextension@metamask.io.xpi)

But the addon is STILL broken. So Metamask must save some data somewhere else... But where? :-|

Any idea?!? Thanks for any help!!

I looked in to my settings and found this message "Your browser is being managed by your organization." It's not there before on the previous updates. When i click the message there is "ImportEnterpriseRoots" as seen on the photo attached. Is this because i use Kaspersky Internet Security?

I chose lavender as the background color, but I hate it. It has changed all my links to lavender and I want to go back to the default settings before I added the lavender. I want the default settings before the Colorways options were made available.

Even though I have figured out how to change the themes, the lavender color is still present in certain words. I want it to go. I want what I had before I added the lavender theme.

I have looked at the articles, but I cannot find an option that says "go back to what you had before" or "undo" or "restore default settings". I'm possibly missing a step. Don't know. I'm frustrated that I can add something so easily, but not get rid of it so easily.

Please help me restore my back ground colors to pre-Colorways add-on lavender. I have a Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.6.

how the hell do I permanently remove the piece of crap "colourways"? (and the default/auto-system ones too). it just looks like a colourblind rainbow unicorn threw up across my screen and physically hurts my eyes. I have my own prefered, personally chosen themes, as well as a persona rotating addon that I very much liked - now thanks to this hideous "update" I have to keep switching my theme manually every time one of them jumps in uninvited when I open the browser, which is incredibly irritating! if these things are to be forcibly installed upon us at least have an opt-out of or disable feature.

If I want to change colours on a site for any reason I'll just use a useful addon, like "no squint" for that!!

why not develop something helpful like a text-to-speech voice that doesn't sound like rubbing your ears on a cheese grater?

Any idea why it is taking such a long time to get the updated version of FB Purity, 33.6 plug-in approved so that the end user (me) can download it? Firefox currently only recognizes 33.2. It is available for Edge and Chrome. I prefer not to get tangled with the other options. If I do, it's probably going to be to dump FF altogether.

I have managed to hide the "x" (close tab button) with this:

/*** Hide Tab Close buttons ***/ .tabbrowser-tab .tab-close-button {

 visibility: collapse !important;

}

I found this being more annoying than the "x" being highlighted. Is there a similar thing I can do that only disables the highlighting without hiding the entire button?

So i have noticed a sudden changed in firefox when i open it and been landed over to my homepage instead of where i left before which usually as "about:newtab" page and in setting there is only option to use firefox default or blank. i would rather preffered to have my home button set with my custom url, as well keeping the option to land on newtab page when ever i start my browser. which was intended as before but not since last update. now there is no option to set newtab page as also a custom url which can be any thing but forced to use the default layout by firefox. that proceed to open a homepage every time when i launch firefox.

Is there a way to easily modify the right click menu when clicking a tab because 'Reload Tab' use to be on the top of the list when you would right click on a tab, now the top option is 'New Tab' and theirs the '+' on the right of the tab on the right so it also seems a little redundant to have it top of the right click list. Also Reload Tab seems more useful than the New Tab. So is there a way to easily modify that menu to get Reload Tab back to the top?

Feature parity: Chrome, Edge, Brave - Ability to add image to built in Firefox New Tab Page

Firefox should have the native ability (as do all the Chromium browsers - i.e. Chrome, Chromium, Edge, Opera, Brave, etc.) to be able to add a image (whether custom from your own PC or changing from a website) to the Firefox Home New Tab page to be used as wallpaper. Yes, there is the ability to install some extensions to do this, but many people prefer to just use the built-in browser functionality for simplicity and/or security reasons.

This isn't a new question, it has been asked before, but the solution was simply a hack which involved adding directories, files and changing about:config settings which many people aren't capable or comfortable of doing. Not to mention the workaround didn't provide the full functionality for Chromium browser feature parity that is being requested.

I'm a bit surprised that this issue wasn't addressed with Photon. Being an issue of feature parity, it's kind of a big miss.
