hi, i'm mostly interested in getting some help with creating my settings/preferences to stay the way i want them. every time there's a update, my personal settings get wiped out and i have to start all over again. there was a time when FF offered a way to leave some updates out and select the ones we wanted. now, it's all blanket updates. many times i lose important tabs and files. it's annoying. the way these updates are coming in i cringe each time i see the notice. and then there are times they get done automatically.

what's a mother to do?

many thanks for your consideration!

I started using Firefox before I got a monitor to use with my laptop. Back then, font size was not an issue. As soon as I plugged in my monitor and dragged Firefox into it, then dragged it back to the laptop, the font was so small it was nearly illegible (in the laptop). Drag it back into the browser and it's fine.

Has anyone else had this issue? I've tried going to about:config, devp and adjusting layout.css.devPixelsPerPx up and down. I keep ending up with font that, if it looks good in my laptop, is WAY too large in the monitor. I just want a normal balance. Chrome doesn't have this scaling issue. Please help! It's affecting my ability to work!

I need to disable the Toggle Menu Bar activation hotkey F10. I use the F10 on the keypad as PointerFocus Spotlight hotkey. However, every time I hit F10, it brings up the Menu bar, which means I have to stop and hit F10 again or hit ESC. This is quite frustrating and slows me down immensely when completing my homework.

I can see a lot of items in pop-up menu comparable to old Firefox version. I don't need a lot of them. They just embarrassed me. How could I remove them? I can not find an option to add/remove items to pop-up menu.

I can see that some items in this pop-up menu are not visible at different web sites.

I don't need following items: "Open Image in New tab" "copy image link" "email image" "save page to pocket"

How to remove them?

Thanks

There were significant changes to the right-click menu from Firefox 87 to Firefox 88. See the screen shots below for the FF 87 vs 88 menus.

Is there a way to restore or customize the right-click menu options? I want to change "Copy Link" back to "Copy Link Location" and for the "a" in "Location" to be underlined. For many years, possibly decades, I have been using right click and then tapping the "A" key to load the URL part of a link into the copy/paste buffer. With FF 88 this is now the "L" key which is painful as my right hand is on the mouse and my left hand is on the left side of the keyboard. Hitting "A" is a no-look-no-brainer for me. For "L" it looks like I need to remove my left hand from the mouse, look at the keyboard, and then tap it.

Related to this is that FF 88 removes "View Image Information" from right clicking on images. I also have used this regularly.

I finally turned off the menu bar some time back and started using the Bookmarks Menu Button (the little star with an underline). With v89, the dropdown menu from this is huge. The fonts are a lot bigger than in v88, and for some reason, there are now two "Manage bookmarks" items, one at the top and one at the bottom. Is there any way, either official or through userChrome.css, to choose a small font? I already have a userChrome.css that I used to remove items from the old Bookmarks menu on the menu bar, but those don't apply to the BM Button.

Firefox has recently started blocking my on-line banking website. I use Firefox DuckDuckGo as my default browser and it worked fine until 2 weeks ago. However, I can use GOOGLE or Microsoft Internet Explorer to do my on-line banking which I do not like to do. They don't require the 2 step security access code that I use to get with Firefox on my cell phone. HOW CAN I FIX THIS? Navy Federal Credit Union technical support it was a Firefox browser issue and they could not help. Can you help me?

Dear Mozilla community,

Before I wrote this question, I read a lot of posts but non of them provided answer to my problem, despite I saw some other having similar problem. Here is the problem. I'm using Firefox as browser. When using "outlook.office.com/mail/" (the email of my university) or "outlook.live.com/mail/" (my personal hotmail email), the spelling option and dictionary choices don't appear when I write click on the text field. The consequences are that the spelling check doesn't work. This problem appears only with outlook services. For example, in the text field I'm currently typing in while writing this message, the option does appear (as you can see in the second attached print screen), but when I do the same in outlook, this option don't appears anymore (as you can see in the first attached print screen). As you can see, the contextual options after right clicking on the text field are different and I don't understand why.

I have two dictionaries installed (French and English) and they work perfectly everywhere except in outlook. I read some Microsoft posts about that but what they explain is that the spelling check in outlook is all based on the browser options.

I'm not sure of when this problems append but I know the Firefox spelling check used to work before even in outlook. So I don't know if a update or something else created that but it's very bugging me and I might have to leave Firefox is I can't solve this problem.

If anyone who faced similar problems found a solution, I would be very glad to hear it! Thanks a lot

When I pushed the right button of the mouse to choose the shortcut of "copy link", its shortcut changed from"A" to "L". I do not know why and when this change happened. It was "A" 3 hours ago.

As I use the left hand to push the keyboard and the right hand to move the mouse, it is very inconvenient. I appreciate it if you tell me how to change the setting.
