I have been using FVD Speed dial for several years. A couple weeks ago, I upgraded my EverHelper/Nimbus web account to paid so that I could sync and keep all my bookmarks since I lost them when my laptop crashed two weeks ago.

Today, I get a message from Firefox that FVD Speedial has been permanently disabled. I need my Speed dials back, and I need refund from somebody if I can't use the add-on anymore. It would be nice if Firefox would notify users ahead of time before unceremoniously blocking something as critical as this. I need to be able to access my speed dials so I can at least import them to some other app/add-on if necessary. I'd also like to know how to contact Nimbus if I need a refund.

There's a social media website I want to get notifications for so that when I get a couple messages I can quickly respond, however I do not like how when I get a ton of notifications in a short time, it gets annoying and can block parts of the screen. I was wondering if there's any trick that could be done to limit notification frequency without disabling them entirely. I'm on Windows 10 if there's an OS specific solution.

Hi, I'm using the latest firefox version 89.0.2. There's a large tab bar at the top. I never use tabs. Safari doesn't show the tab bar unless multiple tabs are being used. This leaves more space to show webpages. I'd like to hide the tab bar permanently or when only one page/tab is used. I guess that means the red, yellow and green mac circles in the upper left would have to be moved to the lower bar, by shifting the back and forward arrows slightly to the right, as is done on Safari.

I looked online for suggestions. chrome.css files were mentioned. But they didn't explain what those were or how to create/access them. So the guidance was not helpful to those who didn't understand those files, like me.

Can you please let me know how to hide the tab bar?

Based on all the comments I saw on threads, it seems many others think the tab bar wastes space. It would be great if Firefox preferences provided an easy option for hiding the tab bar.

Thanks, Frank

Since recent updates trampled on my app preferences, I have changed the setting for pdfs (about:preferences apps) back to "always ask". This works fine for some pdf links, but just gets ignored other times. For example if I click a file:///url/filename.pdf link, Firefox ignores this setting and opens the pdf in the FF pdf viewer.

Obviously, from there I can click the download icon, which brings up the "always ask" dialog so I can open it in my chosen app, but that is a pain, I use a wiki for accessing pdfs constantly.

I often have multiple Windows (2 or 3) all with multiple tabs open. I have "Open previous windows and tabs" checked, and "Confirm before closing multiple tabs" not checked.

Old behaviour (pre 94, I think): when trying to close 1 of the windows, Firefox would ask 'are you sure?' (or something like that)

New behaviour: when trying to close 1 of the windows, the window closes, without warning, losing all those tabs (Sure, ctrl+shift+n restores it, but that's not the issue).

I can, of course, check "Confirm before closing multiple tabs", but that means Fx will also bug me when Exiting, and I don't want that.

Is there a way to revert this change? To have Fx again ask if you want to close a single 2nd (or 3rd, 4th, ...) window, but not when exiting Fx?

There is an option for Firefox to open links in new tabs instead of opening the link in the current tab. There is also an option for Firefox to switch to the new tab you just opened when you click on a link. I have the first box checked - to open links in new tabs - but not the second option - to switch to the new tab right away. Firefox just started switching to the new tab yesterday. I've tried checking and unchecking the box for 'switch to new tab right away' but need some other help.

At the end of October, the Eno add-on from Capital One credit cards stopped working. This add-on produces single-use credit card numbers connected to my Visa card to help avoid fraud for online purchases. I really like the option but can no longer use it with Firefox. I can only use it with Chrome, and I'd rather not use it there because of their constant tracking.

Please make it work again!

Thank you,

how the hell do I permanently remove the piece of crap "colourways"? (and the default/auto-system ones too). it just looks like a colourblind rainbow unicorn threw up across my screen and physically hurts my eyes. I have my own prefered, personally chosen themes, as well as a persona rotating addon that I very much liked - now thanks to this hideous "update" I have to keep switching my theme manually every time one of them jumps in uninvited when I open the browser, which is incredibly irritating! if these things are to be forcibly installed upon us at least have an opt-out of or disable feature.

If I want to change colours on a site for any reason I'll just use a useful addon, like "no squint" for that!!

why not develop something helpful like a text-to-speech voice that doesn't sound like rubbing your ears on a cheese grater?

Hi

 I am looking for a way to edit the parameters used to save settings under the .mozilla directory.  Can I edit any specific files (json, html, whatever but Not sqlite I presume) as it relates to add-ons, themes and extensions.  If so where are they stored for any recent Firefox program.  I use Linux and often 'rsync' entire /home/me/ (which of course includes .mozilla) contents but sometimes the addons are different.  By the way I absolutely love how the settings are all kept in this manner and not mixed with the program executable at all.
 Any help would be appreciated ...

I can't seem to get a microphone that will work with anything but Bing so if I asked Bing a question I can use the microphone

what I want to do is type in Facebook Messenger or write an email and use a microphone to do it the microphone on my Chromebook in my accessibility features will only work with my Chromebook it won't work with a Firefox browser is there an add-on somewhere that I can use that I can't find that will accomplish what I'm trying to do.

It's so much easier to tap the microphone button and then speak instead of type especially if I have a long letter to write.

Home page icon shows up on the toolbar, ONLY ON THE HOME PAGE. Yes, I have Firefox set up to show home page icon for a NEW tab/window, and this works fine. But when I use one of these windows to go to another url, the icon disappears. The purpose of a Home Page is something you can return to easily from any other url. Now, to get back to the Home Page, I HAVE TO CREATE another tab, and then close that previous tab (because I no longer need it).

This is a bug, on a Mac Air M1 laptop on OS11.3.1, running FF 91.3.0esr. It's also an annoyance.

TIA
