I am using Firefox 123.0.0 (rel. 20-Feb-2023) on a Win 10 Pro v22H2 computer.

I understand that FF123.0.0 is supposed to include a new option to "Report Broken Site" on the menu (hamburger icon) that is described in the support article How do I report a broken site in Firefox desktop? but I can't see this new option. I also checked the menu options under More Tools and Help but can't find it.

Exiting and re-opening Firefox didn't solve the problem.

All of my extensions just got moved into a single new extension button. I understand this feature was just added to 109 but is quite terrible.

I can no longer see my extensions on the toolbar. I now have to do even more clicks to access certain options or settings. Which is dumb as it now takes longer to get where you need to go.

This is a terribly added feature. Not sure how this passed. The quality of life is not improved in any shape or form with this. Only makes things worse.

For example. I have norton safe web and search. I now have to click on the extension button to see if a page is safe or now have to do multiple clicks to access that extension.

This new feature is terrible and I really hope it is reverted.

This issue needs to be corrected as it is causing problems.

As you will see from the attached acreenshots, when a file wants to be downloaded, I get the expected Ask options and even though I selected Open with Adobe it still downloads the file.

Picture 1 shows the options, picture 2 shows the file open in Adobe, picture 3 shows it downloaded to my PC and picture 4 shows that I selected Always ask you where to save files so why is the file still downloading.

It creates a nuisance as I only want to open most files and if I decide to save them, I can do that so why is Firefox still saving files whether I want to or not !?!

Now I have to go to the file, delete it and empty the recycle bin for security reasons so this issue needs to be resolved as it used to work fine in previous version of Firefox.

Maybe there is a setting that I need to change so any suggestions on how to fix this would be appreciated.

I am currently running Firefox 109.0 (64-bit) on Windows 10, Version 22H2 (OS Build 19045.2486).


Thanks.

'System theme — auto' does not work and causes CPU usage 100% I noticed this July 1 an increase in CPU usage of up to 100% when viewing videos on YouTube from Mozilla. I removed all my add-ons without improvement. I noticed that this phenomenon did not occur when viewing in 'full screen' but only in a window. By disabling the 'System theme — auto' theme, the problem disappeared. I noticed that this theme was updated to version 1.3 today July 1st. I add that this theme, which is supposed to follow the system theme, does not work correctly under Windows 10 when, as for my system personalized theme have been set. I have ‘title bar and windows borders’ in green option for active windows and in purple for inactive windows. Mozilla displays the 'title bar' in black.

Hi, When you click "settings" in notifications, in the privacy and security settings, a new window opens instead of a tab, so this setting has no URL of its own. In Chromium-based browsers they have the URL "*browser name*://settings/content/notifications", so I could add this URL to bookmarks and access it quickly. Is there any way to do something similar in Firefox? Thanks

There used to be an icon just to the right of the star (for creating a new bookmark) on the address bar that when clicked gave a drop-down bookmark menu. For some reason it disappeared and I cannot seem to get it back. All I have been able to do is go to settings => bookmarks to get a list of bookmarks, which, however, doesn't have the bookmarks organized into the sub-categories I once had. How can I get that icon back on the address bar? I don't want to add on a bookmark bar or tool bar.

When I download an image in Firefox and open it from the downloads folder it will always open in Pixelmator not Pixelmator Pro.

If I double click on an image file elsewhere they correctly open in Pro, but in Finder, the icons are for Pixelmator not Pixelmator Pro. This can be hidden if I turn on finder icon previews, but selecting Get Info always has the Pixelmator icon not the Pixelmator Pro one.

Im not sure if this is a macOS problem, a firefox issue or a Pixelmator bug but it seems to be related to the way the files are registered.

Things I have tried:

Changing file associations in firefox. Rebooting Changing the open-with properties in finder: Open all with Pixelmator Pro Reset the Local & User domains with lsregister lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain user -domain system -v

Hi there!

My Firefox crashed for some reason and I decided to re-install it. Prior to re-installing I had an older theme from older versions of Firefox installed. It was the pink one of the themes you could choose from the "Application menu" (literal translation from German, the system language I'm using). With the new version installed, I somehow cannot find the old themes anymore. I was wondering if there could be any way of using the old themes in the new version? Thank you for your time in reading this request.

Sincerely, Nikola

Hi,

I have Firefox 102 ESR in Debian 11 (LXC in Chrome OS). It is the en_US version with Czech spell checking dictionary installed as an add-on. I can switch the spell checker from English to Czech in ordinary text areas by accessing the context menu via a right mouse click.

However, I'm using a proprietary e-commerce system (Shoptet) with a WYSIWIG editor that has its own context menu, overriding the default one in the browser. I can't switch the language for that reason. Is there a way to switch the spell checker language for a particular text area without access to the context menu? Thank you very much.

I often need to be able to use the arrow keys to navigate my screen, especially in order to find and click on browser links. However, in the latest version of Firefox on a new macOS Ventura machine, the arrow keys are interpreted by Firefox even though they shouldn't be; at the least corresponding box in "Settings" is unchecked.

How can toggle this behavior off?

Thank you, David Romano
