Recently, firefox added an annoying feature that throws unwanted popups into my face: Website translation.

I want it gone. I can't seem to find any switch to get rid of that garbage in the preferences. I'm not scared of about:config but the best I could find was a list of languages to never translate.

How do I globally and eternally disable website translations?

I was using the Firefox browser on my laptop on the floor. My little sister stepped on the far left part of my keyboard and did some sort of shortcut so now it won't show my tabs open or the search bar unless I put my cursor to the top of the screen. Also, my taskbar does not show at the bottom of my screen anymore unless I hit the window button on my keyboard. Can someone please help me put it back the way it was? Is this the right way to contact someone about this problem?

Thank you, Rachel

It used to be if firefox crashed or was killed I would get an option to recover last session that would allow me to pick the tabs and windows to recover. This is no longer the behavior as of a couple updates ago, without me changing my settings.

What happens now is the recovery never shows up, so all I have is the all-or-nothing option where you recover the whole session at once from history. No option there to pick what to recover. How do I get the old behavior back? I relied on this to prune sessions when I ended up with too many tabs.

Hello, In Chrome, when I highlight text on a web page, right click & press 'search', I can make it default to Google search. But in Firefox, the same action always defaults to Bing search. I want it to search in Google, not Bing, not finding an option in settings that addresses this. I've got the default search engine set to Google in Firefox settings, but the action of highlighting text, right-clicking & searching that text always defaults to Bing no matter what I do. Any ideas how to fix this? Thanks.

I see no way to set the system-wide default zoom to 70% as each time I do so and reboot, it is reset to 100%

This is, sadly, extremely frustrating after 3 decades of happily using FF.

Brave does it right.

With all respect, why not FF?

Your thoughts, please.

Hey everyone, FF auto-fills my email into this specific box on the PayPal website (see attached).

It's an email field for inputting the email of someone that you'd like to request money from. I understand as an email field FF always auto-fills this with my email address. But I'm never in a situation where I need to request money from myself.

So how can I prevent FF from auto-filling my email info on this one specific website form field? Is there a way to block a specific page/ URL from using FF auto-fill?

Any thoughts, ideas, and suggestions are greatly welcomed! Thank you all for your time!

Receiving Nightly Error Running in background unable to start 202309091305

After setting Firefox Mozilla Nightly as my default web browser on my Samsung laptop, I have been receiving an error message that Nightly is running in the background with a pop-up window that suggests closing the browser. After agreeing with the popup window nightly still will not open. My fix is to reboot my laptop at this point.

Suggestions are greatly appreciated.

TIA

Dear Madam/Sir,

My computer had a crash today, after that windows was working on some updates. The firefox was updated also, I believe.

Since the updates, whenever the Firefox is closed and later opened again, the previous session is not restored. I have checked the General -> Start-up -> Open previous windows and tabs setting, and the option is ticked, (therefore it should do the session restore).

A have also tried "browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once" changing to "true" and that did not work either, so no previous tabs were restored.

Any ideas, what could have gone wrong and how to this this issue?

There is an Add-On called Shortkeys that allows custom actions to be assigned to various standard key combinations (ctrl-A, alt-X, etc.) but this does not work for keys that emit escape code sequences.

I have a keypad that I use for motion commands, including scrolling, in my vim editor and I would like to use the same keys to scroll up/down on a loaded page in Firefox. Is there any way, including using some Add-On that would allow these keys that emit escape sequences to be assigned to page motions?

Thanks for any insights.

We are distributor of Firefox extension for dragon professional. ( We are self distrubutor of the the firefox extension )

It’s ID is dgnria_pro.firefox@nuance.com

Now we have done some modification to the same extension, while publishing it shows error as “Duplicate add-on ID found.”

Earlier we have used same ID for the Firefox extension in the year 2018.

Currently we have opened new account with same ID “dgnria_pro.firefox@nuance.com” and faced the mentioned issue.

We are expected to publish our extension with the same extension id as we don’t want our existing customers get affected.

Is there any way with which extension id “dgnria_pro.firefox@nuance.com” can be deleted from backend , so that we can reuse it.

We need solution for this ASAP. Please hlep us on this.

Excel office addin shortcut key doesn't work when using Firefox while works fine in Chrome and Edge

I'm developing an office addin product for excel (using microsoft's javascript api for office) that can be installed to run locally in excel workbooks as well as in office web i.e. user's online workbooks under his/her ms365 account. For testing the addin performance in office web, i'm currently trying out different browsers. There is a shortcut key to my addin that should open the addin taskpane. The shortcut doesn't conflict with any firefox or excel office web shortcut (even if it did, there should be a prompt according to microsoft's documentation). The problem is, when i load a workbook and press the shortcut key combination, the addin taskpane doesn't open. There is no error in console either. I tried setting the security.enterprise_roots.enabled = true assuming this could be due to certificate trust issue but that didn't solve it. More interestingly, the shortcut does work in firefox once after many retries and this is completely random - at least i couldn't identify when it works and why. It is very rare and may be once in 100 tries. I tried loading a sample addin provided by microsoft to test shortcuts (you can also use it) from here: https://github.com/OfficeDev/Office-Add-in-samples/tree/main/Samples/excel-keyboard-shortcuts If i load the manifest.xml in any office web excel workbook (as described in the sample above) in firefox, it worked the first time i.e. the prompt appeared (as the sample shortcut CTRL + ALT + 1 had a conflict with existing office excel shortcut for number formats dialog) and the shortcuts from both addins were working at this point (interesting). It means the sample addin shortcuts and my addin shortcut started to work briefly. Then again i pressed CTRL + F5 to test again, and none of the addin shortcuts were being picked up. My addin shortcut simply does nothing, and the sample addin shortcut opens excel's number format screen. If i reset the excel shortcut preference in the workbook using the search bar, it should show the conflict prompt for the sample addin, but it doesn't and rather loads the number format dialog. Please note that none of these behaviors are present in chrome and edge, where everything works as expected and documented by Microsoft - for both my addin and the sample. The taskpane opens as soon as i press the shortcut key for my addin or the sample's. I think firefox somehow ignores or doesn't remember the addin shortcuts most of the time. That's why it does nothing with my shortcut as it is not mapped to any excel or browser action. And it opens the number dialog for sample ignoring the sample shortcut because excel has an action against it. This also explains why both addin shortcuts work when one of them works as firefox starts to remember shortcuts for that session. What doesn't explain is why firefox doesn't store it all the time or why it keeps ignoring? If you want to reproduce, please try with the sample from microsoft. And please let me know if I can help in any way to identify the problem. Sorry for the very long message. I'm eagerly waiting for your response.
