Hi,

is there a way to change the start direction of shift+arrow left/right in the address bar when it suggests an address for completion? It's the other way around in chrome and I got very used to it over the past years. now since I switched to firefox recently it's annoying me somewhat that I can't use this shortcut which I used like 20+ times a day before.

Here is an example, I'm starting to type an Address and then after 3-4 letters starting to press shift+arrow left/right. In Chrome it moves from where I stopped typing (which makes more sense for me at least): https://screencloud.de/638c84d6e432c.gif In Firefox is starts from the end of the suggested URL (which is kinda useless in most cases): https://screencloud.de/638c8507d973f.gif

If there isn't an option for that I'd suggest adding one maybe, cause It's really helpful to quickly correct somehing without having to touch the mouse ot type the entire address out by hand if the suggested url is really long.

Thanks a lot in advance!

Explore possibilities of using System Theme 1.0 in Firefox 91.9.1esr and later.

After moving to Firefox 91.9.1esr I found problem with System theme 1.2. The color of tab add button was changed, and the button is not visible with my Windows 7 classic windows system theme. So, I'm trying to find a way to port System theme 1.0 color scheme to newer firefox versions.

Creation of a simple theme with firefox color extension works. But it is unable to recreate the effects related to active and inactive window color changes. As, I had to use bitmap to get the OS blue color transition pattern.

It seems the system theme is stored in omni.ja file. Modification of the omni.ja seems to be not a practical solution. So, it would be a better way to create an addon theme with the same code as the System Theme 1.0.

The first question is, if it will be possible to create a theme with the same code as a system theme has. Will it be able to perform the same way?

The next question is: Where the source code of the system theme is? I was unable to find it in the Firefox source. It seems, it is not stored in any obvious location.

Since the last Firefox update, my logins are no longer saved from one session to the next...and neither are my devices, even when I specifically give the site permission to save the current device. I have to log in to most sites (email, bill pay, etc.) every single time, and in most cases the site insists on sending me a text or an email to verify it's me. This is entirely new behavior since the last update, and I can't figure out how to get around it. Suggestions??

On a few web pages involving maps (e.g., at https://www.pogomap.info), moving my finger on the Apple wireless mouse causes the display to zoom instead of scroll, and often it is so sensitive that the slightest finger movement causes uncontrolled zooming. Holding down the control or command key while touching the mouse does not change the behavior. I looked at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344674 -- "uncontrolled zooming" and went to about:config and then mousewheel*action, but the parameters I see there seem to be set appropriately. Specifically, mousewheel.default.action and mousewheel.default.action.override_x are both set to 1 (Scroll normally). I also looked at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344894 -- "disable or lock zoom" and changed mousewheel.with_meta.action to 1, but the zooming didn't change so I put it back to 3. (I assume I don't have to restart Firefox to invoke the change.) Any more suggestions?

This folder for me just redirects bookmarks to the main bookmarks manager directory. It serves no purpose and I can't even remove it. It's an eyesore that I want to eliminate completely, not just from the toolbar as you can see I already did, but in general as a whole!

I have a Macbook with a Finnish keyboard layout.

Safari, Chrome and Edge, by default, support command+ö and command+ä for going back and forward in history. This is because Finnish/Swedish (they're the same) keyboard layout doesn't have [ or ] available.

While command + back arrow and command + forward arrow still work, those are useless as they get disabled when a text field is focused.

I tried to work around this with an extension (shortkeys), but even they don't support using umlauts for shortcuts.

I'm trying to adopt Firefox but I can't unless this gets fixed.

Thank you.

I use the Dragon NaturallySpeaking add-on to navigate Firefox (and my entire computer) by voice. Recently the extension stopped working properly, and when I tried to uninstall and re-install the plug-in, it would not work at all.

This is the installation link Nuance provides: https://dnsriacontent.nuance.com/15/setup/ffinstall.html.

When you try to click the "Install" button, nothing happens. This has caused Dragon to stop working with almost the entirety of Firefox. Please advise on if an update is coming.

I have read hours of Q&A about this problem here in this forum before posting, and cannot find a solution.

Until very recently, whenever I would click a link in a page, it would "Open in Firefox" in a new tab. Then after reading it or printing it or whatever I wanted to do, I could click the download [Fx98PDFviewer-DownloadButton] button if I wanted to save it, and an Explorer would open up allowing me to select where I want to put it and what I want to call it (if I wanted to change the name it comes with) before downloading/saving.

Now, when I click a link it just downloads (even though most of the time I don't want that). Despite all I've read, I've tried a dozen settings, and I CANNOT get that behavior back.

If I set the browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to False, and select "Open with Firefox" when it prompts me, I can't get it to STOP prompting me. It prompts me EVERY TIME, even though I have checked the box repeatedly for "Do this automatically for files like this from now on"

And yet it is STILL downloading automatically when it opens for viewing in the new tab, and I am forever now cleaning and deleting crap out of my downloads.

I have my default PDF reader set to the reader I like, and when I'm NOT in Firefox, I do NOT want to have to right-click and select my preferred reader each time.

But when I AM IN FIREFOX, what I need it to do is

- Open in Firefox, in a new tab, 
- DON'T prompt me, just do it, and 
- DON'T download it, unless if I then want to keep it I click the download [Fx98PDFviewer-DownloadButton] button.

HOW CAN I GET IT THIS BEHAVIOR BACK PLEASE?
