The first pic was copied from the screenshot and there is no fixed menu in the middle. ![screenshot copy button|406x500](upload://jc4cVdQpcK9yLRqWanmjirPbHbE.png)

Second pic using download button. There is some annoying fixed top menu appearing in the middle which blocks some of the content. ![screenshot download button2 .png|317x500](upload://mBzxui56Jznz5dxyAM71eP9TxrQ.jpeg)

Please make some download shortcut buttons or make Copy&Download&Cancel buttons float at the top.

Thank you

I just turned off AdBlock Plus in the Add-Ons screen and downloaded ublock origin to try it out. There is no icon for this new plug in to be found anywhere. I can manually go in and change the settings on this plugin in the add-ons screen but there is no icon anywhere to go in quicker or to show a report of how many items were blocked. When I try to Customize my toolbars, the icon is not available there either. The nearest threads I can find on this topic are from 2018 and their solutions are very basic use. Yes, of course I restarted the browser. TIA.

This is disgusting. This is not the first time this has happened. I support you financially and you are giving me a crap in my life.

Hi, I'd like to disable that annoying animation when going to fullscreen (by hitting F11). Supposedly, setting the following should work:

Go to about:config

Set: full-screen-api.transition-duration.enter 0 0 full-screen-api.transition-duration.leave 0 0 full-screen-api.transition.timeout 0 full-screen-api.warning.delay 0 full-screen-api.warning.timeout 0

Restart

However, this does not have any effect in Firefox 94.0 on Ubuntu. Is this a bug/regression? Or is there some other way to disable the animation?

Hi read your article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-fix-preferences-wont-save

I have changed the action for content type "mail to" to my default email app outlook. Despite this when I click on an embedded web page mail to link, the action reverts to the new office "mail" app which I do not want. When I get to the section in your article "User.js file overriding Firefox settings" as the next step in trying to fix the issue, and follow the instruction "Click the Firefox menu - and select Exit." then I am thrown out of the dialogue, it is not logical. Please advise as I don't even know if the user.js is causing the persistence?

Thanks Andrew

Hello !

I'm pretty new packager and i have to deploy Firefox ESR for 5000 users thought SCCM using a simple powershell scripts, copying files, configs etc..

With the latest 91 ESR one, I'm not abble to make the Browser auto checking the pop up anymore (see picture bellow). This pop up authorising Citirix Storefront to be opened with Citrix Receiver.

I thought it was the handlers.json ("receiver":{"action":4}}}) but it does not work : when the users will gonna update the browser, i'm afraid the will be lost with this popup.

Do you guys would know how to deal with it ?

A big thanks Rem

Hello. After reading numerous posts addressing similar issues & having no success, I've decided to post a question of my own. I am running the current version of firefox, 94.0.2. I use the Search Bar religiously for searches to sites like google, wikipedia, youtube, amazon, and ebay. I NEVER use the address bar for searches. I have attempted to disable all functionality associated with searching via the address bar. When I go to the address bar, it is because I have a specifc url I know I want to type with a specific destination in mind. Occasionally, I have a need to just go to the home page of one of my search sites, most often it's amazon.com. Recently (not sure which version of firefox) I've found when I go to the Address Bar & type amazon.com, I cannot just go to amazon.com, instead the address bar turns into a search bar. How do I disable this? Its driving me mad! I swear I've disabled every option I can within about:config related to urlb. Please Help. I don't want to switch to Chrome, but I'm tired of my settings getting messed up every time mozilla pushes a new version.

I've tried everything to get it to quit bringing up this site when I start typing. It is NOT in my bookmarks. "Shift Delete" does nothing except remove the letters that are selected. Telling it to forget the site in history also does not work. Yes, it removed it from history, but it still comes up as a suggestion.

I want to completely disable the 'restore previous session' option.

I want to start a new session with my preset home pages 100% of the time.

Having Firefox display a page 'unable to restore previous session' with the options of 'display previous' pages and 'start new session' is inconvenient at best. I do not want to see that page, I just want Firefox to automatically start a new session every time I open it.

In the Tools menu settings tab, the 'Restore previous session' checkbox is not checked.
