I am unable to get the 'recommended by Pocket' panel to appear in new tabs with my normal user Firefox profile (Firefox account sign-in) on Mac Catalina. When I go to about:preferences#home the option simply is not present.

I created a new user login on my mac to access banking and other financials. This uses a separate Firefox profile (including new Firefox account sign-in and email), and the 'recomended by Pocket' panel is present.

The panel is present on new tabs opened for my normal Firefox account sign-in on my iOS (iPhone) Firefox install.

The about:config settings searching for 'pocket' appear to be the defaults, and match the settings in the financials account.

I have tried in 'safe mode' (add-ons disabled) and have done a Firefox 'refresh', however my add-ons (and presumably everything else) were restored when I signed back into my normal Firefox user account.

Hovering over the Pocket icon in the address bar displays 'save to Pocket', implying to me that it has signed me into Pocket. I've signed in at getpocket.com. New Firefox profiles without signing in do not show 'recommended by Pocket' in either new tabs or the about:preferences#home configuration page, but I expect the functionality requires being signed in to a Firefox account.

Help or suggestions much appreciated.

Hello, I am trying to return to using Firefox after many years away. I need to disable the shortcut keys but cannot find where or how to turn them off. This seems very odd as I am sure its a popular need, at least for certain keys let alone the complete set. As a disabled user I use a program called Phrase Express to fill in all sorts of things for me including online forms. However, firefox's shortcut keys are interferring with those of the much more useful Phrase Express. I am astonished that a simple answer was not easily available whilst searching other questions etc. However, many similar questions were many years out of date and lead me to various addons which were no longer active. This cannot be a difficult thing to do, after all many people (will never even use them and even programs developed my single progammers usually have a simple series of options available in settings to turn them on or off or indeed customise them.

So, can someone please help, the need to use phrase express is essential to cope with my neck and arm problems but I wish to leave Chrome and more importantly Google behind me.

Thank you in advance for your guidance and assistance.

I've found that input fields will not allow entering a forward slash (/) on Firefox Developer Edition (I am on 77.0b7 64bit at present; Windows 10 64-bit). It has been happening for at least a few weeks now.

This does not happen outside of responsive design mode. This does not happen on regular Firefox (I am on 76.0.1, 64 bit currently) either.

Here is my setup at present. Will provide more if asked!

add-ons: adaware ad block installed. plug-ins: openh264 video codec provided by Cisco systems inc. shockwave flash 32.0r0 widevine content decryption module provided by google inc themes: 'light' is enabled.

Anybody got any thoughts as to what may be going on?

HI I have just updated FF from a very old version to 77.0b8 (64-bit). My favourite bookmarks bar had coloured (like windows) folder icons, now they are black, bland and horrible. I have tried searching for an add on that changes the folder icon colours, but the search brings up far to many bookmark add ons not related. I have tried many different searches but can't get a result. Does anyone know of a mod/add on, or a way to change the Folder icons colour please? Many thanks for reading.

I am using Hotdocs portal, which is an in-house document assembly tool. Firefox is the recommended browser, but it is recently handling 2016 docx files incorrectly. When we choose a file on the portal site (internal site), we go through the interview and are presented with a link to "download" the assembled file. When you click that link, a pop-up appears showing the file name as abc.docx but then says it is a Word 97 - 2003 document, even though it is not. The original template is not. If I choose to open the file, it ends up opening and showing as abc.docx.doc If I save the file, instead of opening it, it saves as abc.docx.

If we run this same process in IE/Edge, the file opens as abc.docx as it should. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. Is there anything that could be causing this? I've tried a bunch of troubleshooting steps and nothing seems to change this outcome.

Thank you.

In v76, I was able to stop the URL bar from enlarging by setting browser.urlbar.update1 to false in about:config. In v77, this enlarging URL bar behavior seems permanent. I find this behavior annoying and unnecessary for me. Actually, I think this is just plain dumb. The text does not enlarge, just the URL box. Is there a way that I may be able to disable this behavior, thank you.

After Firefox updated today, it no longer brings up my homepage when I launch the browser. Instead, it's just a blank page (not even a default page). Clicking on the homepage takes me to the correct address.

>Properties show "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" with no extension.

>I've tried resetting homepage defaults in the options, to no change.

Is there anyway I can get my homepage to show up when I launch the browser?
