Just trying to convert to Linux from windows (cinnamon 20.2) using the same display (3840 x 2160) Firefox on Linux scrollbars are a lot narrower than on windows and menu bar icons are too small. I cannot find any settings to enlarge these on Firefox on linux.

I estimate that the windows scroll bar is 300% wider than in Linux (Using screen ruler Linux scroll bars are 6 pixels and bitwarden icon is 12 pixels)

The usability of Firefox is questionable for me like this so I really hope there is a setting to make using Firefox a comfortable experience ( I have default font set to 20 and default zoom to 150% )

Subsequent prompts after the first prompt has a Don't allow prompts from this host again checkbox. I want to remove this checkbox and always allow prompts from the host. The prompt is generated using JavaScript confirm box. Is there a setting in firefox that can help me achieve this? I have tried playing around with notification settings but that hasn't helped me

Attached is a photo with the prompt that shows the checkbox which I want to remove. Sorry for the bad quality

I'm using a web app that uses this shortcut (alt+shift+s), but every time I press this to trigger that action annoying menu bar pops up with the history panel opened. I've already disabled menu opening while pressing alt by making [ui.key.menuAccessKeyFocuses to false] . Now how do I disable this? Also, It would be great if I could remove this menu bar altogether permanently.

Current problem is the following:

Whenever i press the "w" key a search bar opens in the bottom of my browser. This is the search also accessed by ctrl + f. I need this gone since it bothers my ability to use the browser. I cant find it being a keybind from firefox or duckduckgo so i really wonder what caused this.

The proton changes might make for a better smartphone experience, but it really trashes operations on computers. In case you are wondering why firefox's share of the browser market continues to slide, upgrades like "proton" are the main reason.

In Ubuntu 18.04, I bring up a new page, click in the search bar in the middle of the page. Then when I start typing it jumps to the address bar although I have already placed and preferred the search bar to the right. No! NO! NO!

I use Duck Duck Go but Google does the same.

It is bad enough that the upgrade was automatically loaded but on top of that, changing preferences including dumping my home page. Change privacy settings without asking ( to a lower level on top of that ).

Really POOR form.

I had about 5 you-tube download add-ons, I always had the download text under the video, and buttons on my tool bar, everything Disappeared and I can't download any videos. I removed all the you-tube apps and reinstalled and nothing changes, is there an add-on that will give me the download option? I am using windows 10 and everything I have has been updated, and I have been doing this for years so something has changed.

Dear Supporter,

I got a notification from a website that FireFox is not up to date. On closer examination, this is indeed the case. Updates were supposed to be done automatically.

I changed Ubuntu's update server to main server; this had no effect.

In settings preferences under updates I see: FireFox Updates Keep FireFox up to date for the best performance, stability and security. Version 88.0 (64bit) Whats new Mozilla FireFox for Ubuntu canonical – 1.0

There is no option to check or disable for automatic updates. As far as I can remember, update to this version was automatically.

In settings help under About Firefox nothing appears about updates.

Extensions: DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials

OS is Ubuntu 16.04 LTS notification: system-up-to-date I assume that should be allright?…

Thunderbird is 68.10.0 That seems ok...

Thank you very much

After updating to firefox 91, the option to disable proton is removed and now it's not able to turn it off. Proton looks good in some aspects, but I want the seperator between tabs back.

I keep hundreds of tabs in one firefox window and use some of them daily, without the seperator to show the boundary of tab I have to move my mouse carefully to click the correct tab I want, which is disturbing. The ability to work with hundreds of tabs is the reason I use firefox, the designers of proton seem not to have this in mind. Is it possible to offer at least an option to bring the seperator back?
