I would like Firefox to access the Mac OS "Dictionary" for immediate definitions, the way it accesses its own dictionary for spelling, or as Mac's Safari, accesses the Mac dictionary. I see nothing listed in Firefox>Services, nor does the OS's Services Preferences show Firefox as an app to connect services to. I can always get the definition with a right-click on the highlighted word, but I'd like the definition to be a readily available as the spelling.

TIA,

What is the way to turn off the daily firefox update popup nag on MacOS? I've noticed Mozilla is heavy handed at shoving updates down your throat that break things but always come up short on communicating what changes were made. The last update broke printing and now it takes 2 minutes for timeout to occur every time I want to print a page. So I know there is a large community of users who want to turn off update nags, suppose every one of those users submitted a new complaint on a daily basis to nag Mozilla to turn the f*cking update nag off. What will it take?

When I select a tab I would like to see and hear only that tab. One single mouse click should select a tab, unmute that tab and mute all the other tabs, all at the same time.

Selecting a tab would be equivalent to selecting a channel on a tv.

Then when (with a single click) I select a different tab, it would be equivalent to selecting a different tv channel

New Tab Shortcut Thumbnails Are Replaced by Useless Icons

In the most recent FireFox updates (94), the New Tab page seems to have replaced my recent site Shortcuts graphics. Whereas this screen was previously displaying miniature images of the various web pages, they are now displaying only the web site favicon.

While I understand that this eliminates a potential security hole, my shortcut list contains a number of commonly-used pages from my own web site -- and now every single one of them has the same fav icon, instead of the mini thumbnail of the actual page. This makes it difficult and darn-near impossible to discern between the various icons, especially since every one has the exact same text -- the START of the URL (including the web site name), and not the END of the URL, which would actually allow me to know which icon is for which page.

I have already disabled the "newnewtabexperience" config option (which fixed this in the past), but it doesn't appear to be working any more. Is there a newnewnewnewnewtabexperience setting that I should look for?

Hi,

Is it possible for Firefox to implement an easy and accessible profile manager just like Chrome rather than going through about:profiles?

I am using containers but need to separate work and personal workspace. Some of domains are overlapped like Google and Microsoft services. so separating by domains cannot work.

How do I remove Colorways completely? I don't use it and it's a waste of space. I used to have more control of features in Firefox. Now you're putting themes I can't delete? Firefox is really starting to suck! No wonder everyone is leaving for Chrome. I'm about to be one of those leaving Firefox.
