We are working with your browser and we are satisfied with the quality, but recently you have removed those add-ons that we need, namely Js Print and universal Print in the browser settings, there is send to print without a diological window, but which is not brings up this diologue window. You can help me configure the browser so that our receipts are printed automatically without CTRL + P, or tell me the add-on so that I can use it. Thank you so much.

Somehow I got hooked/tricked into changing the color scheme of my Firefox browser. I chose to add on Firefox Color and design my own, but now the drop down boxes (for Bookmarks, Tools, extended Toolbar) all have this ugly dark grey background with white-colored text, which I find REALLY unpleasant!!! I do not see how to switch the box color -- can you help?

Please review "jscher2000 posted an answer to your question 'FF 89.0 bookmarks'" in Mozilla Support Forum.

The "temporary fix" as provided was, indeed, temporary. about:config -- "browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled" change from "true" to "false."

It continued to work through update 91.0.2, but not with the latest iteration (92.0.1) It now appears I'm stuck with the new, not improved and not helpful bookmark format.

The "userChrome.css file" option is not one I'm willing to attempt. Why does Mozilla think it knows better than me what I want in a browser?

A new, and easier, fix will be deeply appreciated.

I just updated my Firefox Developer edition and it completely deleted every add on and customization I had on my browser. Same for Firefox for iOS.

I have an "Old Firefox Data" folder on my desktop but I have no real way to make it work with the newly downloaded and overwritten new browser.

Am I the only person who's really sad about this?

Also, on the iOS browser I'm no longer able to create a BLANK PAGE as a start page for BOTH HOME AND NEW TAB.

How do I create that? There's no option in the dropdown on the mobile settings. And it does not allow me to type in about:blank and then select in the mobile settings. It just stays red and then disappears when I try to do it again.

Why did you rearrange the furniture so HARD?????

Thank you, Still reinstalling all my add ons after 2 days, Jean

So after 13 years, Mozilla has changed the shortcut for "Copy link" from A to L.

This is an INSANE move! Copying links isn't some obscure power command, it's a basic, everyday function that everyone needs to use. Who doesn't have to copy URL links from time to time?

Moving the key to L makes the shortcut so much more difficult to use now. You're required to move your left hand a long way, and look down at the keys. It takes forever and interrupts the flow of browsing the web. It's stupid. Why not change the key to C? Isn't that logical?

I wish I could give Mozilla feedback about this, but sadly I can't.

Can someone please tell me how to change this back WITHOUT installing an extension. If Mozilla have just suddenly changed this key without even giving users an option to change it back, that is terrible.

I am an avid Firefox user (desktop and mobile) and until recently, on the mobile ios browser, I was easily able to change from my default duckduckgo search engine to an alternate if I needed more oomph. This option is now gone. I see other people commenting on this too in the App Store reviews. I really want this back - I don’t want to change from DuckDuckGo but there are a lot of times it’s helpful to use google, and having to copy my search, go to google.com and paste it, is annoying, when I used to have the easy option of clicking in the search bar and then picking google on the bottom toolbar.

Mozilla must be run by 20 somethings who don't realize many computer users have been using them for longer than they've been alive. As a result we are needing to be able to change the WAY TOO SMALL text in the menu bar, drop downs, tabs etc. Now that Font Size and Color Changer no longer works, is there a way to increase those fonts? If not, why don't they add that feature to the next version?

Is there a way to increase those fonts or do I need to go back to Safari?

All my previous settings are still in place, but now I have the hideous new tabs and all my bookmarks and other context menus are double spaced. I had it in compact mode, which worked well for me, since I have a 15" laptop. Now all those settings are still in place on about:config, but evidently, they don't work anymore.

If there is no fix for these new changes, I'll have to switch browsers. I've put up with all of the changes to FF because there were workarounds through the userChrome.css file, but now I can't even get that to work to change these back to the way they worked for me.

Please tell me there is a fix. I don't have time to go back to a previous version and reload all my add-ons. This is the final straw for me. I've been using FF since 1.0, but this taking away all our choices is just unacceptable.

regards,

The Firefox app on laptops and handsets runs very well. well synced too.

the problems I experienced were: when my laptop was damaged and had to enter the service center, I didn't have time to reset the browser. there are many passwords there. logging out of the device in the account settings menu from my android handset likely only stops the browser on the laptop from syncing with the handset, but does not delete the passwords already stored on the laptop Firefox app. (i've tried it on my desktop PC).

thanks in advance for the help.

I am trying to organize my homepage tiles with shortcuts to the sites I frequent most.

Some sites have their logo automatically appear in the tiles, for other websites it does not.

For those that the logo does not appear automatically, I edit the tile and select "Use a custom image"

Upon entering the URL, the image appears in the preview, but once I save, the tiles appears blank (just a white square).

Any suggestions on what I can do? Ive tried various images for various tiles - it appears as soon as I try to add a custom one it goes blank (see screen shot as example)
