The "Flexible Space" item is useful to separate icons on my Firefox (78.0.1, 64-bit, Windows 10) toolbar, but I don't need it as wide as the default. Is it possible to modify the size, and how would I go about it?

This is driving me nuts.

My desired behavior is that, when I middle-mouse-click on a hyperlink, Firefox launches a new window (not a tab) with that URL.

This is how it was working before a power interruption forced my computer to restart tonight, and my desired behavior has gone away.

The middle mouse button works for other functions; and, middle-clicking on bookmarks in my bookmark bar does launch a new window with that bookmark as expected. However, middleclicking a hyperlink does nothing.

I have browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick = false and in the options menu, "open links in tabs instead of new windows" is unchecked. Additionally I have set browser.link.open_newwindow = 2.

Can anyone help me here? This is driving me slightly batty.

I followed the instructions to show image as custom url (thanks), but now my normal home page data doesn't show up. I would like the normal data, favorite sites, article recommendations..., to show up as a clickable overlay over the custom-url-background.

also, pressing c-t nets a second tab, but now it doesn't show the custom background but does show the normal home-screen information. Is there a way to combine the two?

Hallo! The recent version of Firefox allows to open .pdf in Firefox. However, there is still allways the question how to proceed, even if I mark the box to make this unneccessary in the future. When I next time try to open a downloaded .pdf, the question is there again. (I hope you can understand the problem, I am not a native english speaker). See the attachments.

Best regards Fritz

I only want to block adverts when they are intrusive and I feel bad about blocking acceptable ads. Most ad blockers will allow you to whitelist a website but I often will not notice that the ads are being blocked and thus not white list it. What I want is an ad block extension to Firefox that only turns on for new sites when I tell it to, although it should be able to remember which sites I want it on for. I can't think of the best way to explain this which is why I couldn't find a solution on the web.

Does anyone know of an adblocker with this feature and how do I turn it on?

I looked at the article about keyboard shortcuts, but it didn't say if there was a way to disable any of them. It seems often when I'm typing, instead of hitting the backspace key, I accidentally hit the F12 and it pops into development mode. I won't be doing any development in the near future (or probably any time) so I'd like to disable that one for convenience. Thanks

How can I know the names of elements in firefox tab context menu? (Menu which appears when we right click on a tab)

Example - If I want to hide the "sendtodevice" menu, then I will add below code to userChrome.css

/* Hide Send Tab to Device */

  1. context_sendTabToDevice_separator,
  2. context_sendTabToDevice,
  3. context_sendTabToDevicePopupMenu {
 display: none !important;

}

For send to device menu, the element names are above. For other menu items, where can I get their element names?

I want to hide a few menu items

When searching for a word on an already loaded page I use find (cntrl f). The word if found is highlighted in a different color. In the default case its a light green. Can I change the color to red bold or at the least the background color in the highlighted word to black or red. Anything that has a much higher contrast. There doesn't seem to be a config option to do this but it may not be under the "findbar" family.

Been too many times when I’ve meant to close a bunch of tabs but don’t wanna to close the session restore tab (it’s my only way of accessing the old session tabs) and I accidentally close that session tab as well, thus losing all those old tabs. Is there anyway you guys can make it harder (Maybe with a “are you sure” prompt) before allowing to close that tab?

Also, when I go into history and click “open in new tab” on a link (lets say I’ve scrolled all the way down to find it), one the link opens, the link gets sent to the top of the list in history, thus making me lose the context of where I found the link in history. This is terrible UI, I should be left off where I clicked on the link (with it’s surrounding context (i.e. date, etc)
