Since the latest update of Firefox, I now notice that each time I download anything the downloads icon in the toolbar expands the download history and remains in front of the browsing window until I click out of it. This behavior is reminiscent of the Chrome browser opening a pop-up bar every time I download anything which had to be manually closed — a regular irritant. I can see where some may prefer to have the pop ups, but I don't appreciate it becoming the default. Is there any way to disable this behavior so that it downloads in the background as it used to?

I have been seaching for the solution for the whole day, and i found the closest one. It Does remove tabs, windows buttoms, but the background bar still remains, and i dont need it this way. So thats the code i used to make it >>>>>

  1. main-window[tabsintitlebar="true"]:not([extradragspace="true"]) #TabsToolbar .titlebar-spacer {
       border-inline-end: none;

}

  1. main-window:not([extradragspace="true"]) #TabsToolbar > .toolbar-items {
 opacity: 0;
 pointer-events: none;

} /* This makes the bar shorter vertically but removes the 3 window buttons */

  1. main-window #TabsToolbar {
 visibility: collapse !important;

} /* For full screen mode */

  1. TabsToolbar[inFullscreen]{
 display: none !important; 

}

On the screenshot you can see what remains on tabs' bar place I need my browser to end just above the URL string, so there wont be empty space in the top of the monitor. Can you help me find solution for this problem, please?

I recently did a fresh install of Firefox, and now picture-in-picture videos are defaulting always to the top-left corner of the screen and to not stay always on top; each time I open a video or refresh the page and re-start picture-in-picture it reverts to these defaults and I have to manually change it each time. Previously the default had been always on top and would show up in the location & at the size of my previous usage. I would like to adjust the default settings to make that happen again, but I can't find where to do that. I'd appreciate information on how to do this. Thank you!

In every other App (PC and browser) my mouse scroll wheel behaves normally but with Sheets, in Firefox browser, the slightest wheel movement causes the sheet to scroll dozens of lines at a time. It doesn't misbehave with Sheets in Chrome. I've tried changing mouse settings and settings in Firefox but to no avail. Is there a setting somewhere in Sheets or Firefox that I can change to reduce the scroll speed?

For some whatever-reasons (TLDR; I need to see the whole domain (including subdomains) clearly, unlike the default of only highlighting the TLD&second-level domains[1]) I want to disable the color-distinction which highlights TLD and second level domains.[2] Is there config to do so? If not where should I propose one?

Thanks.

[1]: for example ko.wikipedia.org and en.wikipedia.org will have wikipedia.org highlighted, and that's what I can't accept because ko.wikipedia.org (Korean) and en.wikipedia.org (English) is completely different site. (Some might say you can distinguish by language, but there are some English sites which shares the same domain on wikimedia.org, so you get the point here.) [2]: From the screenshot you can see only `wikipedia.org` is highlighted. I want to make it highlight all of en.wikipedia.org. (If I need to highlight everything including the site path below the TLD, I can accept that.)

I have attempted to download and use a highlighter in 3 previous occasions, now...(maybe like a fool) have made yet another attempt. Why do developers, etc., make it so difficult to first of all: Understand how to use it? Then how and where is it to be found then activated when reading an article that we want to highlight...? ? ? ? ?

Come on guys.......please start thinking like a lowly end user out here and stop slapping each other on the back when you produce something within your labs. Sorry ...... but I am sick of dealing with this sort of thing.

Very dissatisfied user of anything web and internet...! !

Is there a way to create a keyboard shortcut to send a link to Mac Mail? There's a toolbar icon to do that and I'd love to just use a keyboard shortcut. Safari makes this easy. Command-i sends the page link to a selected email program, plus the text from reader view. It'd be great to do something similar in Firefox.

Currently the fonts at the top of the page (tab headers, address bar, search bar, booksmarks) are all set to a larger font. I don't know how they got changed but they are too big now. If I try change font size and style in settings nothing happens. It is not how it looked on first install and using another browser has font sizes of a more practical size. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling Firebox and also doing a refresh and it doesn't change anything.

Its almost like a bug that has made Firefox set these fonts larger than they should and not able to modifying them again.

I cannot for the life of me work out how to fix this and its very off putting to the point, short of a full OS reinstall I'll have to start using another browser.

Since the beginning of Firefox I have used it. I got into the habit of the URL box on the right, SEARCH box on the left. Somehow they switched positions. Its been a long time since I had custom the bar at the top. I tried to search how to customize it as I always customized on new release. Now I can not find the CMD or current instruction of where to find it. [that is because the internet has lots of instructions from old releases]. I KNOW THERE IA WAY to ove icons, customize the Tool Bar but I can find under the current release. Anyone?

I am reinstalling Windows\Firefox, and would like to hide\remove Bookmarks Toolbar & Other Bookmarks, as shown on the images. The Delete Folder option is greyed out for both, and Other Bookmarks is empty.

Both were hidden\removed in my original installation, but I can't remember how I did that. I've seen posts mentioning e.g. browser.toolbars.bookmarks.2h2020 (it doesn't exist) in About:config, right-clicking on the Other Bookmarks and uncheck it (it doesn't exist).

I'm using Firefox 101.0.1 (64 bit).

I swear there was an option for that. I accidentally right clicked the toolbar and clicked on Something that messed up the very customized way I had my toolbar set up. Then I realized the Refresh button was missing. I go to put it back and something feels VERY off. I realized that the Refresh button is not part of the URL bar. I am not sure if it was part of it before, but I know for sure it was an option at some point.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I'm running 101.0.1 and spell check no longer works on any mail app like Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, BT Mail. If I use Chrome or Edge then spell check works correctly. This is despite my Firefox Settings being as below.....

Language Choose the languages used to display menus, messages, and notifications from Firefox. ENGLISH GB Set Alternatives… ENGLISH GB Choose your preferred language for displaying pages. Choose… ENGLISH (United Kingdom) (en-gb) Check your spelling as you type = Tick (Yes)

Could you please advise a fix?

Kind regards,

Neil.

P.S. If I use Chrome or Edge then spell check works correctly.
