Hello:

Does Firefox make it hard for OnePassword to work in the browser because they want us to use their manager? The OnePassword add-on is ghosted in the toolbar and can't be clicked or used.

Firefox offers the option to "Fill login" through the context menu (see attached image) when ever in a login or password field. However I am using Bitwarden instead of the Firefox password manager and disabled saving passwords in Firefox. Is there a way to remove this "Fill login" action as it always just shows that no logins are saved?

Thanks, Mattias

Now, however when completing the steps the Search window is reduced considerably (see attached). How to get the URL and Search portions more or less equal?

When downloading pdf, html and other files I recently started getting an "Executable files may contain viruses or other malicious code" warning. This is annoying and definitely nothing I didn't know. Besides, many of these files were written by me, so this simply represents an additional annoyance in my workflow. How do I permanently disable this behavior?

I've read this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/push-notifications-firefox

It tells me how to disable new notification requests, however when I go to website, the icon still appears. The icon still wiggles. I want to remove this ENTIRELY. Under no circumstances do I ever want to know anything about any website with notifications. It should be 100% removed because it is trash feature from trash companies.

Whenever I play any video in firefox (version 75.0, 64 bit) the video is muted for the first two seconds. Then the sound comes back, and I have to rewind to listen to see what I missed. I'm not sure when exactly this started, but I think it was like this for about a month. Maybe two. I searched for the solution in DuckDuckGo, but couldn't find anything. I did turn off fade-in and fade-out effects but that did not help.

I feel it is some kind of option to avoid sudden audio pop-ins or something. But so far I couldn't find anything relevant in about:config or the browser options.

In the good old days of Dial-up/Serial Comms links, and even today with Telnet, it's possible to get the Terminal to send periodic "no-ops" to the far end to keep the session open/ stop it from timing out with extended gaps between activity. Is it possible to get Firefox to do this too please? I wounder if it's possible to send some form of periodic auto-mouseclick in a set area of the webpage? I'm not looking to circumvent lack of activity session termination entirely as I only want to arrange a slightly prolong the gap.

Whenever I open a new window, it starts in a certain standard size (at least in Firefox 77). In earlier versions it would always open "maximised". So for me this behaviour changed (not sure exactly in which version it changed). Since I use my browser almost always with maximised windows, I have to maximise manually all the time now, and that is inconvenient. How can I get the old behaviour back? Preferably I would be able to establish a size I like (maximised, or otherwise as big a size as I set), and then save those settings for the future. Alternatively, I would also be happy if Firefox remembers the size of the window I closed latest. Is there any way to accomplish this?

Also, another annoying thing I noticed, `cmd+b` opens up the Bookmarks sidebar, rather than bolden the text on a WYSIWYG editor on websites (i've installed FF v76.0.1 (64-bit) on MacOS).

And neither is the Temporary Containers Addon. I just did fresh brand new initial Firefox install on both the most updated version of Windows 10 and the most recent version of Ubuntu 20.04. All addons appear in the toolbar except these 2. I've tried installing these 2 first. I've tried installing them last, then disabling all the other addons, uninstalling them and reinstalling them. Nothing will make them appear in the toolbar, yet they appear as enabled when they display under the addons > extensions. Also, hitting the extension shortcuts will not bring up the addon interaction screen for any of the addons, e.g. Ctrl U or Ctrl <period> or whatever the relevant shortcut command is. This appears to only be an issue with FRESH Firefox install, because on my other computer running Windows 10 I've had the Multiaccount Containers Addon in the toolbar for 6 months without issue through many older versions of Firefox; and after I updated (rather than fresh install) to this latest version the Multiaccount Containers Addon remains in the toolbar without issue.

Can anyone suggest how I can get theMultiaccount Containers Addon and Temporary Containers Addon to appear in the toolbar? And why are none of the extension shortcuts working - could I be executing them on the wrong screen? I've been trying them on the Addons > Extensions screen.

Viewing two tabs side-by-side can be very helpful, for example when copying information across. This used to work in older version using the AddOns tiled=tabs/pages. But in FF76 tiled-pages has very limited functionality and does not work for me for any page that requires javascript - so most pages requiring logins are out.

How can I get this very time-saving functionality back?
