Why was this changed? I always used view image, and if I needed it in a new tab or a new window I could use control + click or shift + click. This literally removes a feature for no reason. I don't want my images in a new tab all the time, sometimes I don't need the current tab. I'm just dumbfounded

I wonder if in the new release of Mozilla Firefox there is an Extension that places an "'Extension Button"' in the Toolbar that works as an Extensions Menu including a table of all Extensions, where someone can very easily pin or unpin Extension icons from the toolbar or can handle the Extensions properties.

Herewith I attach relevant Screenshots from three well-known Browsers including this future on the toolbar. (Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Opera)

Hi there,

I was wondering for the past few months if there is maybe someone at Firefox DEV/UI team who so much hates the Close multiple tabs menu item, that slowly but surely is getting to disappear?

  1. In the good ol days there was a separate menu item Close Tabs To The Right under the tab right click menu. Which was very useful and I used it a lot.
  2. Then this developer/designer from above, or some political committee decided that to remove that one and to put it as a submenu under a new menu item Close Multiple Tabs. That was outrageous, but I said well, maybe they have some weird reason behind this change so I should probably get used to the new version. In the end the Close Tabs To The Right menu item was still first in the list.
  3. Then since last week or two, I realized that this evil entity above decided to set the Close Tabs To The Right to be the second one in the list under the submenu! And this is too much! I've made like countless mistakes of closing the very important tabs on the left for the past few days by just wrongly assuming I'l clicking the right submenu item.

So guys and gals or aliens or whatever you are, what are you trying to do? Ruin the browser on purpose?

I'm using the Firefox for decades as my main browser, but it is getting worst and worst with every new release. And the reasons to still stay with it are diminishing. Which is sad...

Since the latest Firefox update, I cannot make Google my homepage on a Lenovo AIO. It is driving me crazy. Firefox will only accept its own homepage for the homepage which I don't want. This does not happen on my other computers. What is up with this?

Dear Firefox support.

Hi, I'd like to change a default shortcut. I'd like to use Ctrl + Shift + N to open a private browser window. The default shortcut is Ctrl + Shift + P, but in every other browser it is Ctrl + Shift + N, so I'd like that also in Firefox that shortcut would be Ctrl + Shift + N. Is there a way to change it?

Thanks for the support.

How can I keep the browser setting to open pdf files with Adobe Acrobat, without doing advanced customization? It works every time I reset the option, but changes to "save" for the next time. Adobe says I should switch browsers, to Chrome for example.

I used to have Acrobat as an extension, but now there doesn't seem to be an option for that. Why is this?

The latest outrage ? Firefox is taking up space at the top of my browser with the following : "For quick access, place your bookmarks here on the bookmarks toolbar. Manage bookmarks..."

I have no #$#$#$@ bookmarks !!! Spent over 30 minutes trying to find out how to turn off this crap. Apparently it can't be done. I'm stuck with the irritating garbage, unless I dump Firefox. Solution found ! Screw Mozilla and Firefox. They've become no better than IE or Chrome. Both of which abuse their users by forcing them to waste time undoing forced "improvements".

For some reason, somehow, the console language changed to Croatian. I use both Windows and Firefox exclusively in English, but I use Croatian keyboard layout. I've never set Croatian as anything, anywhere. Please help me because I'm going mad. I really don't want to switch to Chrome... This is a big problem for me since I never use Croatian on my PCs and am lost while trying to debug my web apps.

I am using firefox 84.0.1; I have my home page set to bing.com

I am not smart enough to know where this stuff is coming from, but I have a lot of spam that I never want to see on my Bing homepage. Examples:

- Bing Homepage Quiz - Get the new Bing wallpaper app - Join "Give with Bing" - Male Bing yours - transform your hompage...

Does anyone know how to get rid of this bloat? Some of us have never made it to the high speed information superhighway and are still stuck on the data dirt road. Thanks

The Add-On feature no longer works. When I click on it in the about:addons address, it just gives a paragraph of what add-ons are and the rest is just a white, blank page. Has been working just fine (several years) until just a couple days ago. I found this out when I had to re-install a couple legacy apps due to a FF foul-up (tried to upgrade even though I refused). I still use FF 55.0.3 because that is the last version that the Tabs Groups will work with. This single feature is far more helpful to me than all the other features of FF combined, so you can see why I want to keep it.

How can I get Add-Ons to actually let me add on again?

I've just today attempted to make the switch from Chrome to Firefox, so I apologize for my unfamiliarity with the browser. I've found that one of my add-ons does not show up in the Toolbar, where I would much prefer it to be for ease of access.

  • I have already attempted two other fixes I have read about: one about deleting files in the Firefox folder and restarting Firefox, as well as another involving the "Customize Toolbar..." option from the dropdown hamburger menu. The former yielded no results other than resetting my other extensions' access to Private Browsing. With regards to the latter, the add-on in question is nowhere to be found - this is not the case with the others, which show up and can be moved freely in and out of the Toolbar.
  • In the case that I may be asked to check it - I have ensured that I did download the add-on, as it is present in the "Manage Your Extensions" menu in the add-ons manager.

Are there other solutions that I may attempt before writing off the issue as specific to this add-on?

Thank you in advance.

Hello everyone, I accidentally noticed that when I paste (Ctrl+V) text into the desktop version of Evernote from vk.com, a hyperlink from vk.com appears in Evernote at the top. The link leads to the page from which I took this text. I inserted this text into various text editors by Ctrl+V, plane text without any hyperlinks is inserted. Checked the Windows clipboard, there is also only plane text. Searching the internet, I found a CLCL program that caches the clipboard, and this is what I saw (see the picture in the attachment). I just copied the text, not the page form. Has anyone come across an extension that removes all metadata when copying text from a site page?

I have already: Ruled out fixes for very old Firefox versions, still online. Tried every preference, library, and bookmarking tool in menu. The three dots does not provide that choice. (It is the FIRST thing I tried.) Used the terminal to sudo apt-get purge Firefox and Used terminal to sudo apt install Firefox. Repeated above procedure after signing out, to stop any starless syncing. Signed back in. I had it when this computer was new, and I then installed Firefox, less than a year ago, Ubuntu canonical 20.04. Reinstalling should have the quick-bookmark star as I had when first installed. I have not: Selected "remove data from device". Next solution that actually works?
