I keep accidentally muting my tabs when all I want is to click on them to switch to them.

I don't want the option to mute the tabs at all. I just simply want to switch to the tab when I click on it.

How do I do that?

My version is 89.0

Hey all,

everytime I start Firefox, it automatically displays Nord theme that I was using some time ago.

I want to change that theme to something else, so I switched to the default dark theme. Upon restarting the firefox, the theme gets reset back to Nord. In theme selection settings I can see that the dark theme is enabled, but firefox actually still displays the Nord theme. I'm assuming it's because I have Nord theme synced from my account from my previous pc installs.

To remove the Nord theme I tried to:

  • Switch to a different theme
  • Remove the Nord theme from my themes list, leaving only the default Light, Dark, System and Alpenglow themes.
  • in about:config I have set services.sync.prefs.sync.lightweightThemes to false
  • In firefox settings, under sync, I have unchecked syncing of add-ons.

But firefox still uses the Nord theme upon every start up, regardless of what other theme I chose.

How do I get rid of the Nord theme?

Why is Firefox IGNORING any Font Changes? oh yeah and it is actually making them smaller when i try to make them bigger???????????????? And how can i possibly be the first person EVER to have this problem?????????????? Oh yes since I know your "experts" Just Like Google, will ask me a bunch of pointless questions. i am on a Dell running Windows 7 and yes i am going into FIREFOX settings and changing the fonts. They have also already changed on my computer's Display and Appearance Settings. so no one left to blame.

According to the current state of the version 93, Linux and the info from this article - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/text-encoding-no-longer-available-firefox-menu#firefox:linux:fx93 the old function for a manual change of the text encoding was removed.

How can i get it back?

This function is critical for me. It it is completely removed from Firefox, them i will downgrade it or look for another browser that still support it.

A few moths ago, when you visited a website and then typed some new search-term in the address-bar, you used to be able to search right in that tab. Now a new tab opens up and you get moved there.

While programming, i search for a lot of stuff. Switch to Firefox -> Ctrl+L -> type search-term is the fastest way i found to search for whatever I need. Problem is: now my browser clutters itself by always opening new tabs instead of just reusing the one i don't need anymore.

So my questions would be this:

  1. Is it possible to restore the old behaviour of staying within your one tab?
  2. If there is some other shortcut that allows for searching without moving to a new tab?

(I also tried Ctrl+K and Ctrl+J. Both still open a tab when you already are on a website.)

I wanted to install a dark theme, which I did, but then i noticed something strange(screenshot), what even is this? Is this a bug? Is it intended? My dark theme accompanied by the default minimize, maximize and close buttons, I've checked other themes and even those recommended to me by default in the themes tab and it's the same problem.

Is this fixable?

With more and more websites reading the browser theme settings, and changing to Dark Mode automatically, I really think it's time we have an option to stop websites doing this. I like my dark theme in Firefox, however I don't like websites in Dark Mode. Surely I am not the only user who wants this feature, either as an option in settings, or in about:config

I am a huge advocate for privacy, and the main reason I use Firefox over Chrome. I and like so many others, sacrifice the superiority and convenience of the Chrome browser, so we can utilize the great features Firefox has. And it makes me feel a little better inside knowing I am tracked less. I do not want websites reading my theme settings or any other non essential browser data. please fix this.

Hi!

I want to change the default serif and monospace fonts (Atkinson Hyperlegible and Hack, respectively) in Firefox. However, the fonts that are listed in the advanced font settings appear to be a specific list that doesn't update with the system-installed fonts, so I cannot pick the previously mentioned fonts. I tried working around by tweaking with the about:config values, but so far no luck. Any advice?

Thanks in advance, Lucas

I've seen many post about not being able to open dropdown menu in firefox and i was unaware of this problem when creating new web page designs nevertheless, i am now experiencing this problem myself on mobile

most post about not being able to open dropdown menu simply give advice on options i can take on my browser to make it work. But that does not help me as far as clients who come to view my site, meaning my concern is that he end viewer will not see or be able to use the dropdown menus

the dropdown menu does work on firefox on regular computer browser the problem is when viewing the page on mobile on firefox

so to be clear when viewing webpage on regular computer browser using firefox the dropdown menu works when viewing webpage on a mobile using firefox the dropdown menu DOES NOT work

so is there anything i can do as the designer of the webpage to fix my webpage so that it proper displays to the end client on their mobile phone?

here is the page https://www.spellswork7.com/spells.html

any help would be greatly appreciated thank you

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% )

I turned my computer on today and all of a sudden half of the file icons on my desktop now have a Firefox file logo and I want my desktop to be restored to its original appearance. I did nothing to cause this and do not appreciate the Firefox browser software changing the appearance of my desktop without my permission. Also I do not like having to take the time correcting the situation. Do I need to delete Firefox from my computer and start using a different browser? Can you direct me as to how best to fix this???

Or, am I missing some secret handshake?
