This often happens when I’m using it to play music. It’s also restarted when I’m trying to watch a video, read a web page or, once, when I was part way through setting up login details for a new bank account. I want to apply updates when it’s convenient for me, not when Firefox decides to update. So, how do I prevent my activities being interrupted by Firefox update?

I appreciate that it’s important to keep it up to date but I’m not happy when my activities are interrupted because Firefox decides that it needs to update itself. I suppose one approach would be to apply updates every day when I start Firefox however; I often have a specific task in mind when I start it so I really don’t want the distraction of having to update first.

Here’s what I’ve tried so far. None of these have stopped Firefox restarting itself:

On the Settings page: Select “Check for updates but let you choose to install them” Disable “Use a background service to install updates”

Since the above didn’t stop the Firefox restarts, I tried: Select “Automatically install updates (recommended)” with “When Firefox is not running”

In 'about:config' : Set 'app.update.auto', to FALSE. Set ‘app.update.background.interval’ to 31536000 (i.e. 1 year) Set ‘app.update.interval’ to 31536000 (i.e. 1 year)

       Set 'app.update.auto.migrated' to FALSE.

In Windows Registry Editor, set: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox] "DisableAppUpdate"=dword:00000001

Used Win 10 to disable the “Mozilla Maintenance Service”: FF still restarts when I’m trying to use it. Also renamed the updater exe to: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\updaterXXX.exe": auto update still runs (and installs a new updater.exe).

I realize that the page I am using findbar to search from reloads and scrolls to the top using some Javascript so that when I return to the searched page from a popup, the last search item is no longer focused when I come back so (or press F3 or Ctrl G) e.g. if I found the 29th hit, then I have to click down 30 times to get to the next search hit.

I tried using add-in Luminous to disable the reload/scroll to top of the page that I am searching but failed. It is a complicated add-in.

Is there any way to jump say 10 hits down at once?

Is there a hotkey which would allow me to grab a Firefox window ANYWHERE WITHIN THE WINDOW to drag its position on a Mac OS screen?

Otherwise there are only two tiny little areas upper right and upper left to grab the window without making a selection with the mouse.

Hello everyone,

I need to recover a web page that I visited several times last fall using Firefox on Mac OS. I have regular backups which should include the Firefox cache files, but after looking through several threads online it is not clear exactly which file I would look for in my backups, and how I could go about actually looking at the cached version of that page. I have seen some tools for viewing old cache files, but the only one that seemed reasonably easy to use is only for Windows.

I would be grateful for any step-by-step instructions on how I can see an old page (or at least any parts of it that were cached) that no longer exists.

Also: I tried the various internet archives such as way back machine and google cache but no such luck. This was an ad on a real estate website in Italy.

Thank you in advance.

Hi there,

I have a laptop running Windows 10, plus the latest version of Firefox. The laptop has a built-in webcam. I have also connected an external webcam via USB. This second camera is better quality and preferred, I visit a web site. When I first activate the camera, I am presented with a dropdown of available cameras. The USB camera appears in the list. All is fine. I instruct Firefox to "allow" this camera to be used. (first image) However, after a short time, less than a second, the same dialog is shown again, this time without the USB camera. (second image) There have been no actual hardware changes. I can then click "allow" again and the *integrated* camera works, i.e. not the desired camera. So, two questions, really. First, what just happened? Did Firefox try to control the USB camera, find that it couldn't, and redisplay the dialog showing only the "controllable" option? Second, my desired endpoint here is for the web site to use the USB camera. How do I achieve this? I can easily do this with Chrome but I like Firefox. TIA.

I selected "Tips and Tricks" because I always feel like everyone seems to understand the answers and I do NOT.

I have and donated to Firefox since it began. I think it is a great idea. I have severe dyslexia and ADHD.

I keep add-ons to a minimum and my home page free of everything. I use menus to find what I need. Having short-cuts all over is too distracting. When FF is not available and have to use another browser, I find it very difficult: they are loud, busy and ads are all over.

I am finding "help" more and more difficult to understand. Do the folks realize that I don't use computers all day long? That some people don't use the same definitions as people who work with computers? (I tried to find the meaning of "default" with 0 results, phrased the question many ways.)

I am hoping a beginners guide review would help, as thing have changed since Firefox was new or "Firefox for Dummies" was written!

Is is/are there basic manuals? Please help. ("Please don't respond with what help are you looking for" - that will not help the next problem).

Every time I want to reload this file to change or debug something, I have to close all my browers windows at once, reopen FireFox, and restore my previous session just to save my tabs. It's growing so exhausting that it's making me want to switch browsers. Is there any way around this?

Example of what i want to do:

I'm browsing Website and i click and open a link. Examples:

https://Website.com/P/-this-site-doesnt-exist--68290.html or https://Website.com/P/-this-is-also-an-example--34846.html


I want Firefox to automatically delete "-this-site-doesnt-exist-" or "-this-is-also-an-example-" whenever i open any of them. So opening them would instead open:

https://Website.com/P/-68290.html or https://Website.com/P/-34846.html

Can this be done?

Say, for example, I want the download path to be "MyDownloadDirectory/%yyyy/%yyyy.%mm" which means "Change the download path every month to a folder named after the current year and the current month inside a folder named after the current year".

Many non-browser applications allow me to do this, but for some reason browsers generally don't have that option. I was thinking that there was a way to do this in Firefox.

What is a way to do this? If it's not possible in vanilla Firefox, is there an extension available for this?

A webpage has 210 "boxes" (3 "boxes" across the page x 70 "boxes" down the page).

Each "box" contains a "picture" plus 6 to 9 rows of "data". (see attached) There should be about 1500 rows of data.

To select ALL of the boxes, I drag the cursor from the first row in the first box to last row of the last box.

I then do Copy.

But when I paste the copied data into an Excel or text file, only about 67 rows (from 9 boxes) are pasted.

What am I doing wrong?

Hi,

I'm looking for a plugin or website that is able to convert voice to text capability on Firefox. For Chrome there are many solutions (VoiceNote II, Voice Recognition, Dictanote). And I need to use it on firefox.

In firefox, as I think, permissions settings/UI haven't yet been sorted out however, so permission can't be granted to use it by the user, so it can't be used.

Thank you!

Hey guys,

I saw in the following post that I can modify the zoom values of Firefox to custom values of my choosing (e.g. 75%, 85%):

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1201469

I followed the instructions but it did not work for me. Yes, I did save the changes I made, and I completely closed & reopened Firefox, but the changes I made have not been applied for some reason. Please see the attached image.

I would have ask the question in the aforementioned thread but it's been archived so I had to open a new one. Does anyone know why Firefox does not seem to recognize my custom values (.75, .85)? Thanks!

Whenever I open a new tab or window, I'm greeted with the Firefox home screen, which displays various shortcut tiles.

Currently, I have a shortcut for Amazon, which includes a handy blue magnifying glass symbol 🔎 indicating it's a search shortcut and not a shortcut that will take me to an URL. I'm looking to set up similar search shortcuts for YouTube and Google. I've attached an image below for reference.

If anyone is familiar with how to customize these search shortcuts in Firefox, your guidance would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you have any tips or steps to follow.
