Some sites use alias or shorten, the bar at bottom used to show the actual page info before you click- I think it's safer.. Now that bar auto-hides- I would prefer it remain visible all the time in windowed mode (don't care about full screen)

Is there a setting to put it back? I can't screenshot b/c it disappears unless mouse is on some part of the page.

Since last update several keyboard shortcuts no longer work. I find them easier than using a mouse often. Two that are most annoying at not working is Ctrl-T to open a new tab Ctrl-C to copy. That now opens developer tools This all started with last update. Does anyone know how I can restore those keyboard shortcuts?

Anyone have any idea who would make a common keyboard shortcut like the one for copy do something different. Do these people not use computers?

Hi,

how can i allow flash if i open the Site without will be asked? I have set this in the policies.json. This is currently for testing.

"FlashPlugin": {

     "Allow": ["https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html"],
     "Default": true,
     "Locked": true
   },

But I always have to allow it extra.

And the second question: Can I hide the "Menu" button via policies.json?

I wanted to change my History preferences to "Firefox will never remember history." After I select that, it prompts me to restart Firefox and I do. But when it boots back up, none of my add-ons are visible on the toolbar. I tried to restore customization settings back to default and uninstalled and reinstalled all of the add-ons but none of that worked. They all come back and function as soon I change the History preferences back to "Firefox will remember history."

My question is, is this normal Firefox behavior or is this a bug? If it's normal and I'm missing and obvious detail, please let me know.

When wanting to play a game it is said that the AdBlocker should be put off first. My steps are go to the main menu, add-ons and watch the list of my personal add-ons. I have no Adblocker in my settings in add-ons. Secondly there are many Ad Blockers and it is not said which one.

So where is this question coming from, from Mozilla itself? Anyway how do I make the Adblocker switched off then when there is no button shown at all? Might there be a failure in the provider of the game?

I hope this is appropriate here. If not, please direct me to where it is.

As new releases of Firefox (and Thunderbird too) come out, a constant question for me is whether the add-ons that are important to me (I use a lot) will be compatible with the new release. It would help if

(1) The Add-Ons web site always allowed me to specify release and OS. Sometimes that is allowed, sometimes not.

(2) The Add-Ons web site allowed me to specify a release before which I don't want to see add-ons listed.

(3) The Extensions page in Firefox allowed me to ask which of my extensions (enabled and/or disabled) are supported/not supported in a specified future release.

(4) When Firefox wants to install a new release, it reported on extensions that would become incompatible and always asked my permission to go ahead.

It probably would not be necessary to do all of these things, but I included them all because I don't know which are the most practical.

In settings I've found font settings. My default font is DejaVu (Serif, Sans, Mono)

After changing font (type and size) noting is going on. Even after restart. I disabled option to let wep pages set their own font.

The most important thing for me is to have working "Minimal font size".

To sum up. I can change everything in advanced font settings but there is no result on web pages.
