1. Where is the top level "community forum"? I've spent 10 or 15 minutes wandering around a maze of Mozilla support pages without ever getting to a top level "now you can look at postings" page. So... I'm stuck posting to ask where I could've avoided posting.

2. And the actual question at last!!  ;) One of my favorite websites for news, thehill.com, places annoying ads to partially obscure the text that you're trying to read. Sometimes (25%?) of the time when you click the "X" box, they then fire off a pop up. Now, this pop a) comes from an ad pretending to be a window and b) is a result of my mouse click. So the fact that I can find the setting menu and turn on the pop up blocker is not helpful, as discussed in the appropriate support page:

Is the pop-up shown after a mouse click or a key press?

Certain events, such as clicking or pressing a key, can spawn pop-ups regardless of if the pop-up blocker is on. This is intentional, so that Firefox doesn't block pop-ups that websites need to work.

Is it a true pop-up window?

Sometimes ads are designed to look like windows, but really aren't. Firefox's pop-up blocker can't stop these ads.

So what we have at last is a second-level question: now that we know the built-in pop up blocker is not the solution, is there one out there? A plug-in perhaps? Or perhaps soneone direct me to the forums and an appropriate discussion of (presumably NOT the popup blocker) the mechanism by which this is solved?

Thanks for any courteous replies in advance, Craig

PS: Amusing contradiction here... how am I going to find the answers... hmmm....

I used to use chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul to display All Bookmarks in a tab (instead of in the sidebar or a Library pop-up window).

Similarly, I also used to use chrome://browser/content/history/history-panel.xul to display my full History in a tab.

Obviously neither of these old paths work any more (since Firefox 57).

What are the new equivalents of these two paths, so that I can achieve the same effect in the current Firefox?

Think of it as a manifesto or cry of the soul. I ask the moderators to bring these wishes to the developers.

You may not take me seriously, but I think you should listen to me, because I express the opinion of a large number of users. Feedback should be important to you, while you unfortunately lose your position. Developers are simply required to submit an official release of the portable version. Everyone needs personal space, and you yourself have planted this victorious banner proclaiming the protection of personal data. Give us this with a portable version. We spend a lot of time at work, we travel a lot today, we always need a reliable browser at hand. If the browser in the devices could replace the full version, the mobile version would not exist.

In the portable version I want to see: - security for data, the history of work on a PC for a browser from USB should not be saved. - There must be an authenticated login to start working with the browser. - strong encryption of passwords and cache. - Full synchronization, history, tabs, and sessions. It would be desirable to configure it so that it would work at the request of the user for a specific instance completely. This can be configured from one standard for another version or for all at once, or make everyone equal.

Now about the interface as a whole. And although I admire your stubbornness and identity, please look at the competitors, it will not give you such things: - minimalism like chrome (everyone is furious with extra elements, in opera it is a side panel or a button with an emblem, let me customize the working panel more flexible, as I used to, make the icons smaller) (remove the window frame in KDE 5 1 million thanks) - workspaces and a portable version like an opera (there is plenty of room for this on the work panel) (portability and mobility are great) - synchronization (I want to see the browser like you left it in another place, in another OS, on another PC, or after the portable version. If I consider it necessary to separate something, then this should be offered to be solved by synchronization settings, or workspaces)


I like firefox a lot. Your ideals and aspirations are close to me. I respect the work done by your team. And until the age of portable PCs the size of a USB flash drive (hi USB 4) has come, you can still fight for users.


P.S. Very soon the whole web will change, you yourself have launched many processes for this. Your attempts to create an OS are bold. But it seems to me that Google is more visionary. Every service becomes a mobile application over time, it happened because mobile devices are handy. WEB is not yet so flexible, and the service has not yet become as convenient a website as the application on a smartphone now, but everything will change in the future. The OS will be more like a browser with add-ons than the set of icons in your smartphone now. I wish you success.

It looks like your adblocker software may be causing this issue. Please turn off your adblocker or whitelist Clover.com, then refresh the page.

I went in to ad ons - extensions and it is not showing any ad blocker program running. I know it is just the Firefox Browser doing it because I am able to load the site fine with other browser (Edge)

I hate preview. Especially, when the final action is saving the PDF anyway, preview just gets in the way. But there is one banking site, that for "security reasons" blocks me from downloading the PDF except from the preview (and then the filename is just "document.pdf", instead of something with a date embedded in it). I do not want to have the preview at all, I consider it insecure. Is there some work-around for this?

I once had a solution to this problem, however after updating my browser I now need to find a new solution too this problem because the old one doesn't work now. So any help on this problem would be much appreciated

Elysium said

Hi, to hide the status bar completely, please paste the code below to your userChrome.css. #statuspanel { display: none !important; }

Thanks to Elysium it now works great

I'll post the steps on how to do it for anyone else that has this issue

You'll need to locate the default profiles folder so follow this

Search in your browser about:support to bring up the troubleshooting information page. From there locate Profile Folder and click Open Folder to open your profile folder. This folder should have a random name a dot and default (#######.default)

Once there you will need to make a new folder to do this right click in the folder then go new then folder and name this new folder chrome in all lowercase once made go into that folder. Keep this folder open because we will be needing it later.

now you need to open up a notepad to do this. Windows button + R and type notepad into the run box.

Once open you will need to copy and paste the text below into the notepad.

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

#statuspanel {
   display: none !important;

}

Once you have that done click file in the top left then click Save As. You will want to save this to a place you can access easily like the desktop. Name this text file userChrome.css its CaseSensitive so be careful. Once you have named it make sure to cange the save type from Text Documents (*,txt) too All files (*.*).

Ok now we have the userChrome.css ready all you have to do is drag and drop userChrome.css into the chrome folder we made earlyer.

Restart the browser and your done.

Greetings. I have been reading about this but i can't find an answer specific to my question. I want to change my Firefox account password, not because i forgot it, just because i want a better one. Online you can read that if you reset the password (without the recovery keys), all data will be lost, but i don't want to reset it. I have access to my settings page and there is no warning in the "Change Password" option saying that if you change it, data will be lost. Also, in this page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-your-firefox-accounts-password it says "We recommend changing your password periodically". So, is it safe to change the password if you know the current one and have access to the settings page? Is the "Data will be lost" warning only for when the password is forgotten and needs to be reset? Thanks

Every UI update, there's something that makes me enjoy Firefox less and less and it becomes more and more difficult to make it something I feel is reasonable. Having the address bar suddenly take up more of the UI is bad design and not only irks me on a design level but it just doesn't need to be that large. I *know* it has focus because I did it deliberately.

So how do I turn this "feature" off?

So I generally keep Firefox up to date, letting the system manage itself, but this time I have had to disable this update. When I update, either through the automatic updates, or even from a fresh install of 75 (or beta 76) the browser starts, I see the lovely new address bar, albeit blank, and the browser just hangs right there. I can type in the nifty new bar, but nothing happens, no browsing to a site, no opening configs, nothing.

I have this issue on windows 7, 8 and 10 machines, so it's not an OS issue.

When an update does happen it chews up my profiles too and I have to end up rebuilding those. Only when I go back to 74 does Firefox work again.

I'm at a bit of a loss here.
