How do you make sure the tab name is the same as the filename in Firefox?

It actually is some other property of the PDF document such as Title, which is metadata inside the file.

Hi I'm using Firefox to open PDF files from a network directory. The reason is that it's probably the best PDF manager I can find.

  • What I wanted to do was have an option to open the file in a native viewer such as Adobe, this way look at 2 parts of the document at the same time.

At the same time keep it in Firefox.

Is there a setting to do this or an add-on. The add-ons I've seen are meant to open directly to Adobe from a web link I think.

When I use Chrome and enter the same link it is much shorter and looks like :- https://www.facebook.com/JournalTimes/posts/10166569792420602 As I post a lot of links I prefer to use the shortest. How can I get Firefox to display the url the same as Chrome.

Right click Menus and Bookmark folders spacing

Hi, I've just spent all day trying to follow all the different suggestions here regarding these issues. Adding all sorts of things to the userChrome CSS but 95% of the suggestions have no effect at all [I'm seriously non-technical, so I have no idea if I'm doing it correctly though...probably not] The only thing that I can change is the Tab Height...nothing else changes regardless of what numbers I put in there. The only way I've been able to make the Bookmarks folders usable at all is to enable Compact mode via about:config. But that actually makes it way too compact now...from one extreme to the other. At least it's usable now...so not the end of the world, but the right click menu still has way too much space between every entry [Compact mode made no difference to that at all]. I don't know how to make a screenshot of those menus :) so I took a couple of pics of the screen...can someone please show me what to add to the CSS file to make these ridiculously big spaces between the menu items way smaller...like they used to be before this Proton came in? I tried tons of things that people said to add to the CSS to fix this menu spacing thing but none of them changed anything. I'll include the CSS file that I have below. Thanks a lot

ps: for some reason the pics always come out sideways here

I managed to restore the single-spacing for bookmarks, kept a prior version of FF, and fought off nags to update every time I opened FF . . . until now when I was tricked into "allowing this app to make updates to your PC". It wasn't the usual nag button and I thought it was some kind of simple bug fix, but no, I was "upgraded" to v. 100.0.2 and my bookmark spacing fix was overwritten. Furious isn't strong enough to describe my reaction. All this time, and all the other complaints, yet I find no way to decrease the excessive spacing between bookmarks. I understand that this design may be better for those who use a finger on their screens, but what about us mouse-pointer users? Why are we so disrespected? What can I do to decrease the space between bookmarks?

When I open gmail in Firefox browser, I lose the connection very often, it also happens with google drive. But it does not happen to me if I use Outlook from the web, I only lose the connection with Google from Firefox.

However, if I open the same thing using Google Chrome, this does not happen, it works correctly throughout the day, and I do not lose the connection.

My version of Firefox is 100.0.2 (64-bit) on my notebook I have Windows 10 Pro installed.

Desktop URLs not working today, Firefox as default browser -- but work if default browser toggled to Edge

Hi folks,

I've asked this same question of Microsoft, as I cannot tell if this is a quirk in Firefox 100.0.2, or in Windows 10 Home, or something to do with what they put in the water here (besides flouride)...

Over the last few days I've had to reinstall Office on this Windows 10 Home system, and had a Firefox update to 100.0.2 as well. Everything working fine up through last night -- URL shortcuts on the desktop would open Firefox (default browser) just fine.

Shut down. Cold boot this morning. Manually open Firefox as usual. Double-click on desktop URL shortcuts (or right-click, Open) gets a real quick hourglass and then nothing. No error, no browser tab.

So I checked: default browser still set to Firefox; .URL filetype still set to "Internet Browser."

I toggled the default browser to Edge, and the links work just fine. Same links. No changes to them.

Toggle it back to the much more privacy-protecting Firefox and... they won't work.

This seems spooky.

Note that the desktop icons for these shortcuts correctly show either the Firefox icon, or the logo/icon for the web page itself (ie, Google Maps). And the toggle of default browser did NOT update the icons.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Hi, Some files, say PNG files, always download immediately. Other files ask where to be saved. In my settings, I only have about 4-6 entries, but PNG for example is not there. I deleted the handlers file and restarted. Same issue. The only thing I can think of is the fact that I'm using an account which syncs across 2-3 devices. How can I fix this issue?

Hi, I use the Outlook web interface on firefox. I keep running into a strange bug. I'll start typing an e-mail message, and all of a sudden, my keystrokes are interpreted as commands instead of text. For instance, I'll type a word with an "n" in it, like "and", and somehow after I type the "a", the interface starts grabbing keystrokes away from the text field, so when I hit "n", it creates a new message, and the "d" ends up going into the text field of this new message. It's very frustrating, because I can't type more than a couple of sentences before the message and interface get screwed up. I've seen this misbehavior for a while, through several updates of firefox. No other web app behaves this way.

There is a very descriptive thread of the problem: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/all/working-with-outlook-web-interface-on-firefox/4212cac3-4be3-4295-b325-369ea3d46f2a?page=1

This has been happening to me for many months and through many browser updates. I/ going to have to get rid of firefox soon

Hey guys, this thing is bugging me and I've tried pretty much all about:config settings (+ refreshing firefox profile) I could find here to no avail. FF works fine, actually it works great, all links open in tabs, never seen a new window in normal operation except... I have it pinned on taskbar (main, monitor 1, you can't pin on secondary display) and it is all cool. However I have FF on secondary display and clicking on the FF taskbar icon opens a new empty FF window instead of just focusing FF. If FF is in main display, all works. To illustrate:

1. FF set to show on main display, clicking FF icon on the taskbar launches FF if not running or brings FF on top if running. Good

2. FF set to show on secondary display, clicking FF icon on the taskbar (main display) launches FF if not running (and opens it on the secondary display) or launches new empty FF window if FF is already running!. Clicking running FF icon on the secondary taskbar correctly activates FF

This is quite annoying as like 1/3 of the times I intend to bring FF up front I instead open a blank FF window which I need to close and click again on the correct FF icon.
