I am currently using an older addon called Window Titler which I would like to remove as it has not been updated in a while. However I cannot find a way to name my different Firefox profiles with a Titlebar name. This is very very helpful to tell what profile you are working in as without it you don't really know.

Is there a way in about:config or somewhere else to configure the Titlebar without using a plugin?

hello, lately i have problems with any kind of VR content with firefox. A-Painter doesnt work and i cant play any VR video

looking a bit around on the internet and trying to change VR related settings in about:config gives me 3 unsatisfying results (trying to play a VR video) : - either nothing happens, the video starts playing normaly in 2d mode and when i press the VR icon the videos pauses but doesnt switch to Vr mode - it starts steamVR for no reasons (which doing the same action didnt start steamvr before, instead the video would just play in VR) but then nothing more happens, juts steamvr is open but the video dont play - i get an error message saying i need a webVr compatible browser

i have tried tweaking nearly every VR releated setting in about:config to a point where i dont remember what all the original configs where but i cant simply reset my prefs.js file as this would mess up every other tweaks i have made in my config. trying to play the same video works just fine in MS edge

no hardware changes have been made to my pc and i didnt install any new addon to firefox. i hadnt used my VR headset for some weeks so i dont know exactly since which firefox update the issue started. Occulus software is up to date as my other drivers (i didnt update any driver lately neither) are actually up to date or the same as they where when everything worked. i have also tried with a fresh FF nightly install without succes (in nightly i didnt change anything in about:config)

I am really annoyed. The new update has lost many of my bookmarks Plus the 'other' bookmark page that automatically appeared in a bar has disappeared. It now means that as a user, you have to go thru more 'clicks' to access yr 'fav's sites'. Therefore I wish to revert to previous, which hopefully wld still hve ALL of my bookmarks. I wish IT companies wld leave things alone. Generally changes are more for their benefit (data mining) than the users. Can anyone assist me. thks

Is there any way of making sure it works consistently? I need to right click then click "Open Link in New Tab" to have it work reliably. Maybe something in about:config? Using latest Win7 64 bit Firefox. I've noticed this for probably 2 years now at least. Not sure if it ever worked 100%.

I am using Firefox 96.0 running on Ubuntu 20.04. The procedure described on this site to create a desktop shortcut for a website (click on padlock, drag it to the desktop and release) does not work. A grayed image of the URL being dragged moves onto the desktop when dragged, but when the mouse button is released that grayed image springs back to the URL field.

I also tried the alternate procedure i.e. drag a shortcut from the Bookmarks menu onto the desktop. The same failure sequence as described above occurred.

Thanks in advance for the help.

How do I disable "recent bookmarks" when I go to the bookmarks.

Also How do I get bookmarks to appear as they did prior to the update. It used to be 1 button on the right side of the address bar would open a menu that had all of my bookmarks and book folders. Now theres an option button, where when I select "bookmarks" and then "bookmark current tabs", "search bookmarks", and "hide bookmarks toolbar" as well the dreaded "recent bookmarks" that show a random selection of among all of my bookmarks from random folders.

If I want a remembrance of how my bookmarks used to be, I have to make sure the menu bar is visible and select bookmarks from there.

Hi, I've recently noticed that Firefox is not using Intel Graphics for hardware video decoding, here are the specifics:

- I tested this on two separate PC - one laptop with dual GPU (an Intel UHD 630 and NVIDIA GTX 1070) and one desktop with dGPU removed (leaving only an Intel UHD 630 by i7-9700K), on both PC I made sure to run Firefox on Intel GPU only. - According to information I gathered online, Intel UHD 630 should support H264 decoding and VP9 decoding without any problem. - I tested videos from Youtube (VP9, non-HDR video) and Twitch (avc/h264 video) - The exact same video, when played on Microsoft Edge (Chromium), uses Intel's hardware decoder without any problem. - On the dual GPU laptop, when being forced to run on NVIDIA's GPU, Firefox correctly uses the NVDEC decoder without any problem. - Both PC uses the latest Intel driver (30.0.101.1191)

I have attached copies from about:support page below.

In Firefox settings, under General -> Performance section, I have left "Use recommended settings" checkbox on.

Could someone help?

Telling a 32bt from 64bt file by the name--Firefox Standard--Firefox esr

I'd like to request that the same versions of the Firefox files have the 32bt or 64bt designation in the name. When downloading directly FF Standard and FFesr for my 32bt and 64bt computers/laptops, I can't tell which is which in the download folder, and so I have to download them all over, this time waiting for each to download so I know which it is, and then rename it, and then downloading the other bt version.

    (For example: the file "Firefox Setup 91.5.1esr.exe" could be 32bt or 64bt file, both download with the same name. The same with FF Standard et al.)

It's tedious to do the renaming but I prefer to know at a glance which is which in my archive folders. . . Been doing this renaming for years. Just thought I'd finally make a request. I believe it's the same issue in the Linux and iOS 32bt and 64bt versions--they look identical in the download folder. Thank you.
