Hello everyone! thank you for your assistance and expertise ahead of time as any help is heavily appreciated.

I've been trying to find a way to disabled downloading in Firefox all together. The reason for this is per my organization's requests. As they do not want users downloading anything what so ever.

I've found extensions that can do this, however since I'm tweaking a profile in which is shared amongst all users. Its not the best solution since I have to manually check the add-ons on every time I make a new user profile.

Is there by any chance a means for me to disable downloading as a whole within either userChrome.css or about:config?

Any help again is greatly appreciated.

Clicking "Show more comments" on Facebook does nothing (I browse it without an account), also no comments are shown in Cracked.com, I haven't noticed if other sites don't show comments. I use Ubuntu 20.04 (when I first opened FF on this pc it had the gnome icon and I hadn't checked for this problem before importing my old profile with add-ons, now it doesn't show the icon for some reason), I tried safe mode, refresh firefox, creating new profile, uninstalling and deleting home/.mozilla folder, no luck. Before I got this pc I used my old laptop with windows 7 and I'm pretty sure I had the same problem with facebook comments that had started some time earlier.

Hello,

I'm a regular user and I use 4 dozen addons to have mostly security features and a few other additional features.

Since no add-on can offer a toggle to change dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled within the GUI, I asked myself why. Some addon developer just mentioned briefly that it's not that easy to interact with the parameters of about:config.

Surely there are already dozens of concerns about this that lead to the decision of what is possible and what is not right now, but in this particular case it's useful - and some workarounds may be harder / heavier in code or may not be possible at all.

As soon as parameters of about:config can be easily changed, other add-ons could also use this feature and thus their code could be streamlined.

For example access to WebRTC, UserID or the Javascript setting or for accessibility.blockautorefresh, accessibility.typeaheadfind, app.shield.optoutstudies.enabled, browser.fullscreen.autohide, browser.newtab.preload, network.dns.disablePrefetch, pdfjs.disabled, network.http.referer.trimmingPolicy and many others that I didn't mention would be useful as addons to manage these on a site / tab basis!

So I would like to ask where to request something like this and how to properly fit it into the terminology that the moz:devs need to understand?

Many Thanks

Bookmarks is frustrating me. Perhaps I haven't understood the changes and how to use them? I set my first bookmark to go to a specific folder and after that, every single bookmark goes into the same folder. I have to go in and use the "edit" function to get the latest bookmark to the right location. What am I missing or doing incorrectly? Thanks in advance to all Gurus who answer.

Dear Firefox Community,

I can't create subject or new post on AMD Community forum. I mean this website: https://community.amd.com/


This can be problem with firefox because before update to version 91.0 I had not any problem. I think that this is problem with cookies because when I open community.amd.com website in private mode I can create only one subject or new post. If I want to second subject or post I can see information like this: "Post flooding detected (user tried to post more than 1 messages within 600 seconds)". Like I said when I want to create second subject or post this is not possible. To solve this problem I must log out from the website next exit the tab and open new one in private mode, log out again and I can now create again but only one post/subject.

This can be also problem with new version of firefox 91.0 because before update to this version I had not any problem. I think that this is problem with cookies.

Can you tell me if you have also this issue?

Thanks.

Well this was a *shocking* disappointment.

After 18 months without broadband I tried to update my Linux Mint system.

Including Firefox which I've used forever.

And when I launch Firefox the first time I find it is almost unrecognizable and my previous configuration has been completely obliterated: no preferences, no add-ons, no extensions, my history is gone and all of my several thousand bookmarks; the screen looks like a bad parody of Chrome (another toy I avoid). I see a fleeting and unintelligible message having something to do with Sync, about which I could care less and have no use for. But, drowning, I grasp at any faint hope... except I can't get into their marvelous Sync service. One of your myriad, useless help pages refers to some circly link icon which is nowhere on my screen. So I stumble around trying to find a way into this sign-up and wind up in a perfect catch-22 -- the login requires an email address for an account I don't have and so rejects it because I don't have the account for which I'm trying to sign up . I finally found my way in through these forums but still don't know what I've signed up for and if it's any help.

So they have me completely buggered. Are they really going to make me start all over again?
