I am trying to setup custom startpages that I am creating using HTML5/CSS/JS. Issue is I am doing this in multiple devices that I have Firefox Sync on.

Those devices are Manjaro (Linux) and Windows 10. Thus their directories and such differ vastly.

I setting the homepage to be `/home/arszilla/.config/mozilla-firefox/HomePage/index.html` on Linux, whereas on Windows it is `C:\Users\Arslan\Documents\Mozilla Firefox\HomePage\index.html`. However due to the sync this gets overwritten constantly.

Is there a way for me to keep Linux's homepage intact while the same is done for Windows? So Linux has its own 'non-synced' homepage, while Windows has its own 'non-synced' homepage?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

i have been given task to change config for Mozilla ESR users in our company. I'm trying to change the value "security.enterprise_roots.enabled" which is disabled by default in update channel "esr". Is it safe to push (mass copy) new file "channel-prefs.js" with modified preference or there is another way?

pref("app.update.channel", "esr"); /* extra code */ pref("security.enterprise_roots.enabled", true);

We use the STAR TSP100ECO thermal receipt printer for our POS in Firefox. Since the update to Mac OS Sierra, Firefox will not save the printer settings (paper size) - they reset every time you close out of Firefox. Firefox is up to date.

I'm in the Advanced>Network tab, and I'm trying to enter an exception in the 'ask me before allowing offline content to be stored' box, but even though the popup comes up where I should enter the site url as an exception, it doesn't allow me to type in the box in any way, nor to paste a copied url.

Why have this here if I can't enter information into it?

In Firefox 38.7.1, I know I can remove one-click search engines in:

chrome://browser/content/search/engineManager.xul

- except for the last one. How do I remove the last search engine? I could go to great length explaining why I don't want my browser to automatically perform searches in any circumstances, but suffice it to say that unwanted, automatic functionality will by definition hamper the way a person works. I am sure it is possible to disable this, or better, completely remove it, but how?

I'm currently using ff 42 which I downgraded from 43 after having accidentally upgraded from 28 (which worked fine) to maybe whatever came after 43(presumably 44, but I don't remember). I've since gone back down in grades and then back up and all appeared to function better than it did (slow crashing, tabs took forever to load, etc), but there is still one major problem that I can't seem to fix with downgrading/upgrading; When I open the options menu it opens in a tab,. I have used this system/options menu on my laptop which currently uses ff 38 and WORKS. However, when I open the options menu/tab on the current computer that is using FF 42 I can not change/select/highlight between the options on the left sided menu (search, content, applications, privacy, etc). Initially on the very first "accidental" upgrade the options menu worked fine, but on all subsequent tab based menus that were not in separate smaller popup windows (as they used to be) the option to select options did/does not work.

The menu/options remain highlighted on the "GENERAL" option and no manner of clicking selection or use of arrow keys seems to disengage it and allow for other selections. It's stuck. Help.
