In v76, I was able to stop the URL bar from enlarging by setting browser.urlbar.update1 to false in about:config. In v77, this enlarging URL bar behavior seems permanent. I find this behavior annoying and unnecessary for me. Actually, I think this is just plain dumb. The text does not enlarge, just the URL box. Is there a way that I may be able to disable this behavior, thank you.

Hey guys! I'm a student and so it's useful for me to make my university's student portal as my homepage. However, whenever I start up Firefox, it goes to the 'Authentication required - Mozilla Firefox' popup login area before I can get into my portal. The details are already auto-filled, but I have to hit OK every time. It's more of a quality-of-life and very minor problem, but would there be a way for me to just click the Firefox icon and instantly be logged in automatically? Maybe a custom URL to set as the homepage, or some other way I have to go to make this happen. Thanks so much all! Any replies would be massively appreciated!

URI paths can be used to access internal resources in Firefox.

For example, the URI: chrome://mozapps/skin/extensions/rating-won.png relates to the real physical folder path of: ... /omni.ja!/chrome/toolkit/skin/classic/mozapps/extensions/rating-won.png

What is the chrome:// URI for the this particular icon?: ... /omni.ja!/contentaccessible/html/folder.png

It is higher up the tree than the usual top-level items, and I can't figure out the correct chrome URI for it.

The one and only website that I want as my new tab is a bit laggy and takes a while to load, probably because of CloudFlare.

And I'd like to have a huge page to see all of my bookmarks in, to make it easier to organize my bookmarks. Instead of using the bookmarks sidebar or the Library window.

So I thought why not combine the two things that I want? Make my new tab open up to the Chrome bookmarks page, and then if I want that laggy website it can be one of the top bookmarks listed. Or if I want to organize and see my other bookmarks instead, I can just ignore that top bookmark and focus on the other bookmarks.

Well my New Tab URL won't let me and it is a Firefox restriction so he couldn't add the feature even if he wanted to.

But surely there is a trick or workaround that might not involve extensions?

If so, please let me know.

I want chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml as my new tab page.

The extension was changing it to http://chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml which broke it.

A .mp4 video clip on the web will play through f/f but with no sound. A .mp3 audio clip plays ok. The laptop sound controls are not muted. The mp4 clip shows a bar at the bottom and on the right there's a symbol that looks like a speaker with a bar through it. There seems no way to change this. The mp4 clip will play perfectly in WMP and from the website on a Samsung phone.

I have some sites that I visit specific pages on. For example, https://www.futilitycloset.com/category/technology/. When I start typing "fu", Firefox suggests first the base domain, futilitycloset.com, even though I never go to the main page. I've tried using shift+delete when the base domain is selected, but it's still there the next time I type "fu". Is this possible?

I need to disable the Quick Find hotkey or change it to something else. I use the forward slash on the keypad as a divide symbol for an in-browser calculator for my online math homework. However, every time I hit forward slash, it brings up the Quick Find search bar, which means I have to stop and use my mouse to click the divide button on the calculator. This is quite frustrating and slows me down immensely when completing my homework.

So I think it would be useful hava a command to list all windows and tab open and be able to save this list in another program (text, spreadsheet, presentation or whatever. I searched in Firefox help, but find nothing: is my fault (so, please, suggest ho to do it) or a lack of feature? Many thanks

I want to remove ALL the passwords in firefox lockwise. No answers here. This is the worse software design I have ever seen from firefox. The old versions allowed you to delete ALL passwords with one simple click, it looks like the only way I can get passwords removed in firefox lockwise is do so individually. Who was the mental defect that designed firefox lockwise without providing a ONE CLICK way to remove all passwords?
