Is there any way to clear the "Recently Closed Windows" list in Firefox? [I am running version 103.0.2 (32-bit) .]

If not, can one be added? (I'll have to submit that through the proper channels, of course. But if you have this same question, and do the same, the request will get likely more attention from the right people.)

I haven't found any extension, vetted by Mozilla or otherwise, that does so. (I see many for Recently Closed Tabs, but NOT for Recently Closed Windows.)

There's an option in the list to reopen all of the closed windows, but not to clear the list.

I have noted that windows with only an empty tab are not saved to the list, so that if I remove all tabs from a window and then close it, it is not saved in the list. As a corollary, if I restore a closed window, removing it from the list, and close all its tabs then close that window, it is no longer in the list. So restoring a window, clearing its tabs, and closing the window is a way to get rid of SOME entries, one by one.

BUT there are some pop-up windows that do not display the tab bar or the menu bar and provide no way to force display of those. I have not found any shortcuts or extensions that would let me do so. So there does not seem to be any way to get these windows out of the "Recently Closed Windows" list (without letting them be open windows instead).

All help or advice would be appreciated, so thanks in advance. ~FINIS~

How do I set the new tab homepage and allow entering a new location safely?

The moderators and firefox devs keep suggesting "new tab override" add-on but there is a bug in the UI. When you use that add-on, then press control+T it does NOT highlight or remove the existing address. This means when I type a search, it sends my contents AND "moz-extension://....." which given the uniqueness of that URL is a privacy violation as it seems unique enough to identify me personally.

The behaviour I expect is the same as the default tab, i.e. I press Ctrl+T and then can type directly into the address bar without any existing content.

RANT: I've been using firefox almost 20 years and this is the 1 item that may make me move, not because it's an essential feature but because it shows the total disrespect shown by ignoring and fobbing off of users that obviously want this feature. Removing it was part of a slightly user hostile move to force them to see pocket or other social links.

I recently installed Firefox 103.0.2 (64-bit) on my brand-new Windows 11 HP ENVY desktop. Now matter how I decobnfigure Bing as a search engine, the browser always defaults to Bing when I search in the search field at the top. i even made google.com my home page, and even when I search on the page itself, it changes to Bing.

I don't think it was misbehaving like this on my previous computer that died. It was running Windows 10 and was up-to-date Firefox-wise in early July.

There is a screen shot of my configuration attached. The dropdown under the Google logo has no other items in the dropdown.

Firefox has suddenly stopped sizing shipping labels when downloading them from Amazon and ebay. They print way too large. Changing the printer setting, size, etc does not help. It seems as though Firefox is converting them somehow. I have tried clearing the printer settings in Firefox also.

Hello,

I updated to macos Monterey yesterday and I guess I guess I also my firefox updated to 102.0.1 (64-bit)... Anyway, I was very much used to have a white background in firefox's built-in pdf viewer when viewing pdfs that really have a white background (for example if you download it and check it with Adobe reader, or any reader other than the viewer built-in the browser).

Now the background color is gray, and it's not convenient for me at all. I could not find the magic setting that allow to changing this behaviour... I do not use themes, so I do not mind changing something there if needed.

Could any guru help here please ? That would be much appreciated.

I have Firefox 103.0.2 and have enabled the use of style sheets in about:config. I have a CSS style sheet userChrome.css that is giving me color at the top heading and in the tabs, except for the active tab (is white)

I'll list the CSS and see if you can give me some guidance in what i need to do to put some roundness in the top corners of the tabs. the UserChrome.css file .titlebar-color{ color: AccentColorText; background-color: AccentColor; } .tab-background{ border-radius: 5px 5px !important; margin-bottom: 0px !important; } .tabbrowser-tab:not([selected=true]):not([multiselected=true]) .tab-background{ background-color: color-mix(in srgb, currentColor 5%, transparent); } menupopup > menu, menupopup > menuitem{ padding-block: 2px !important; min-height: 0px !important; }

root{

--arrowpanel-menuitem-padding: 2px !important; }

The whole top is solid color (same as Windows color, which is ok by me. However, it would also be nice if there were a dividing line or separation between the menu on top and the "tabs" below. Any ideas would be great! Thanks!! Vern
