Good Morning

Today I had to repair Firefox and after restarting, I felt a strange scrolling sensation, it was not the normal Firefox scrolling, I even thought I had openend the wrong browser...so I went check about:config , and found some values where changed as new default values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 200 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 50

I tought it was me the problem so I installed an older version of Firefox (80.0) in order to compare, and found a normal scrolling and those values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 400 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 200

I think this is a mistake from devs, if i wanted to have horrible scrolling, I could just use Edge instead of Firefox, could you please bring the original scrolling back to Firefox?

Thanks

  • After I updated to Firefox 83, my bookmark and history shortcuts now up inside the URL bar instead of next to it (Picture 1) (I know this is part of the new update 83, how can I change this back?)
  • Additional settings for the URL bar show up (as they should) after I go to a new website. Usually these options are always there (Picture 2) However, all these options disappear (Picture 3) as soon as I type anything in the URL bar and these settings won't return until I open a new tab and go to a website.
  • Lastly, when switching between search engines I know have to click the search engine and then also click enter to complete the switch. (I know this can be 'solved' shift+clicking, but I would prefer for it not to take an extra action and revert back the old pre FF-83 way)

Does anyone have any how I can change it back? - Either by reverting back to FF82, or by using about:config

How to disable: "Your internet connection was restored" notifications? – Terribly annoying and only started in the last version 77.0.1 very recently. I rather switch to another browser if I cannot get rid of this. Checked my 3 plug-ins, but cannot find anything there, nor if it is something on Facebook I cannot find it. Any idea?

Greetings everyone,

This question has been on my mind for a long time as I have multiple Firefox Add-Ons I want to use but I've been avoiding using any Firefox Add-Ons as I do not know which Firefox Add-Ons are safe... :'(

Since I use Firefox for so many of my personal and important things I just want to know that the Firefox Add-Ons are safe.

How can I know which Firefox Add-Ons are safe?

I'd really appreciate any advice.

When I press ctrl+shift+s, I get a menu in the upper-right corner of the browser. It has a “Save full page” option. However, I still have to go and click on that.

Is there a shortcut to just directly take a screenshot of the whole page? Is there a way to configure such a shortcut if there isn’t one by default?

Thanks!

Hi,

I need to do some big extraction of instagram for my sociology thesis, for this I need to scroll down multiple opened webpages at the same time.

In Firefox I know the auto-scroll feature with the middle of the mouse, but I need something like that that works in the background and stay still while I work in other pages.

Do you know a way to do it?

The Zoom Scheduler extension for Firefox used to work fine and was really helpful when I need to schedule Zoom meetings for work. Around Oct 8, it stopped working and gives the error "Schedule meeting failed. Please try again." when I use the "Make it a Zoom meeting" button in Google Calendar or "Schedule a Meeting" in the extension button.

I tried going through Zoom support and they eventually said they would escalate the case to their engineers, but other people have confirmed that the extension still works with Firefox and I'm starting to suspect it is something wrong with my installation or my computer or something.

Here are the things I've tried:

  • Uninstalled the extension and added it back
  • Made sure there is only 1 Google account added and that I'm logged in to it
  • Refreshed Firefox
  • Reinstalled Firefox
  • Removed FF profiles and reinstalling
  • Tested the Zoom extension in Chrome (yes, it works there)
  • Set popups to not be blocked
  • Cannot test in Safe Mode since the problem is with an extension, but at this point the Zoom extension is the only one installed
  • Looked at what happens in the console when I try to use the Zoom extension (unfortunately I don't understand what these lines mean): https://www.screencast.com/t/eg53k7KcRu
  • One more clue or possibly red herring: I also had problems recently using the LastPass extension where you are supposed to be able to export all your passwords, it is supposed to pop up a window but instead got stuck in a loop of requesting my master password
