Second pic using download button. There is some annoying fixed top menu appearing in the middle which blocks some of the content. ![screenshot download button2 .png|317x500](upload://mBzxui56Jznz5dxyAM71eP9TxrQ.jpeg)

Please make some download shortcut buttons or make Copy&Download&Cancel buttons float at the top.

Thank you

This is disgusting. This is not the first time this has happened. I support you financially and you are giving me a crap in my life.

I am TOTALLY disappointed in you.

Hi, I'd like to disable that annoying animation when going to fullscreen (by hitting F11). Supposedly, setting the following should work:

Go to about:config

Set: full-screen-api.transition-duration.enter 0 0 full-screen-api.transition-duration.leave 0 0 full-screen-api.transition.timeout 0 full-screen-api.warning.delay 0 full-screen-api.warning.timeout 0

Restart

However, this does not have any effect in Firefox 94.0 on Ubuntu. Is this a bug/regression? Or is there some other way to disable the animation?

Hi read your article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-fix-preferences-wont-save

I have changed the action for content type "mail to" to my default email app outlook. Despite this when I click on an embedded web page mail to link, the action reverts to the new office "mail" app which I do not want. When I get to the section in your article "User.js file overriding Firefox settings" as the next step in trying to fix the issue, and follow the instruction "Click the Firefox menu - and select Exit." then I am thrown out of the dialogue, it is not logical. Please advise as I don't even know if the user.js is causing the persistence?

Thanks Andrew

I want to completely disable the 'restore previous session' option.

I want to start a new session with my preset home pages 100% of the time.

Having Firefox display a page 'unable to restore previous session' with the options of 'display previous' pages and 'start new session' is inconvenient at best. I do not want to see that page, I just want Firefox to automatically start a new session every time I open it.

In the Tools menu settings tab, the 'Restore previous session' checkbox is not checked.

I really need a good option for my FVD speed dial. After using it for years it has suddenly been deemed as dangerous. After using it for years, I never had a problem with it being "dangerous". But anyway, I really need a good alternative but the one Firefox recommended is no good. It has a list of options you can pick from but they all say they are not monitoring these speed dials. I wonder if any of those are dangerous.

For some reason I've recently started having issues with websites complaining FF doesn't have javascript enabled.

When I go to 'about:config' and search for javascript:enabled I see 1 setting, and it is set to true.

However, when I search all modified settings and scroll down I see two settings for javascript:enabled, one which is true, and one which is false.

See image.

If I click the back arrow or otherwise change the normal text font (the 'false' one) to 'true' javascript works, but I don't know why both are showing up.

I tried clicking the trashcan on the 2nd (already 'true') setting, and it didn't do anything except remove the value (true:false), so I had to add 'true' back to it since it wouldn't go away.

Why am I seeing 2 x javascript:enabled settings, both which have to be 'true' for javascript to work?

OS: MacOS (Intel) 11.6.1 FF: 94.0.1 (64-bit)

There is no option to turn off https-only mode in preferences under security. I am running Firefox on Kali Linux. I need to be able to access http sites. So I did the about:settings and set everything that was https-only to false. Yet I still get the "unable to connect" and when you click on the i icon it says "connection not secure" I know it is not secure and it does not need to be. Is there anyway to get the latest version of firefox to go to http sites? There are some important plugins I use with burpsuite and I don't want to have to use a different browser. I know what the documentation says but there is no https-only mode option.
