I'm having a hard time getting the settings right for what used to be default link behavior. I want links in web pages to open in the same tab, unless the page wants something else. I want external links, i.e., from Thunderbird, to open new tabs if Firefox is already open. Can anyone tell me how to fine tune the settings to get this behavior?

This is driving me nuts.

My desired behavior is that, when I middle-mouse-click on a hyperlink, Firefox launches a new window (not a tab) with that URL.

This is how it was working before a power interruption forced my computer to restart tonight, and my desired behavior has gone away.

The middle mouse button works for other functions; and, middle-clicking on bookmarks in my bookmark bar does launch a new window with that bookmark as expected. However, middleclicking a hyperlink does nothing.

I have browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick = false and in the options menu, "open links in tabs instead of new windows" is unchecked. Additionally I have set browser.link.open_newwindow = 2.

Can anyone help me here? This is driving me slightly batty.

this extremely annoying hyperlink tool tip pops up and gets in the way of mouse clicks. if im not careful I'll accidentally click it instead of what i intended to click on. it likes to pop up over my email check boxes too when im trying to select mail to delete. if i do accidentally click on it, it will follow the link using the tab im currently on which is the brunt force of the annoyance. it absolutely gets in the way and infuriates me to no end. I dont have any add-ons that specifically relate to it, and i cant find anything doing a google search that relates to it either.

A lot of folks are having issues with the new URL bar.

My biggest issue with the new URL is the way that URL bar text turns light blue rather than to normal way that selected text is shown, in negative (white on blue), because I often want to select part of the URL and the light blue makes it difficult to see what I have selected. I am 55 and my eyesight is not what it used to be.

jscher2000 kindly recommended adding the following to userchrome.css here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283831?page=3#answer-1331668 as follows

  1. urlbar {
 --lwt-toolbar-field-highlight: Highlight;
 --lwt-toolbar-field-highlight-text: HighlightText;

}

But this css does not seem to work for me.

I have not touched the Firefox theme, so I guess I am using the default theme, but I have added the multi-row tabs css from MrOtherGuy https://github.com/MrOtherGuy/firefox-csshacks/tree/master/chrome/multi-row_tabs.css but the multi-row tab css does not seem to mention "toolbar" so I can't see that they would get in each other's way.

I would also like to turn off the automatic selection of the whole url but that may not be possible.

I am setting up a new desktop and want to copy my Firefox profile from one Linux desktop to another. In the past I have just used sync and then had to go thru the process of making all the config adjustments and tweaking other settings that are not part of sync. I just copied over my Thunderbird profile and it was a perfect copy and paste. Unfortunately I have tried twice with FF and its not working. Keep getting the message that the profile being copied in is from an older version. That's not true however the one being copied in is from 77.0.1 and the new desktop being pasted into is 71.0. Any idea what I am doing wrong that's an easy fix? Thanks.

On launching Firefox, none of the extensions work. uBlock Origin does nothing, LastPass prompts me to acknowledge their privacy policy then login, Firefox logs out of my user account, the containers tab does nothing (although this might be related to not being logged in). These are the only services I use. Everything works if I take the time to set them back up (except uBlock Origin).

Strangely enough, reddit.com will not load, and this is the only website I have had problems with. When prompted, the address bar ignores it, not even trying to load the site, completely blank page without an error.

Everything works perfectly fine (including uBlock Origin) in private browsing mode.

This started happening a few days ago. Since then I have done a clean install of windows (which was needed anyways) but to no avail. It is probably something stupid I managed to mess up in Firefox, although I would have no idea what that would be as I haven't changed anything advanced since the clean install.

I am completely dumb-founded. Any help would be appreciated.

Firefox used to allow a hack to add a custom search engine to the search engine list. This allowed users to make custom engines the DEFAULT search engine. (Engines can be added to Bookmarks but then they require a keyword to activate. Default engines do not require a keyword to activate).

The way to do it was: 1) place a folder called "searchplugins" with your custom .xml file describing your search engine (i.e.,, a URL with a %s added to it) inside your Home folder on a Linux OS.

2) open the Web Console

3) input: Services.search.addEngine("file:///home/user/searchplugins/custom-engine.xml", null, null, false);

4) now your custom search engine would appear in the search engine listing in Firefox and could be made default

On recent Firefoxes, this no longer works. When I inter the Sevices.search.addEngine part to the Web Console, I get this message: "ReferenceError: Services is not define"

I've been using Google Chrome because of stuff like this. Firefox just doesn't allow me to do what I want to do. But I appreciate Mozilla ideals and am trying to give Firefox another chance. But it is contingent on being able to make my custom search engine the default search engine.

Is there a fix for this error I'm encountering in the Web Console?

Hi,

See attached for details. One feature I'm trying to setup with FF is search engine query URL shortcuts. Basically, it allows the user to type a letter and it auto enables that URL. In this case, we're using Reddit. Basically, it allow us to type 'R' followed by a space which then auto populates the query URL. We can then type in our requested subreddits. However, I haven't been able to get this to work with FF. The search engine function add-on in firefox only enables a general search instead of subreddit specific. Would love to hear any feedback and/or solutions. Thanks in advance.

Hi everyone,

I am having trouble getting my custom new tab page to be focused when opened (instead of the address bar).

I am currently using the `autoconfig.js` + `mozilla.cfg` approach to overriding the `AboutNewTab.jsm` service with a custom local file. This is working great with the two files containing this code:

autoconfig.js: ``` pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg"); pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); ```

mozilla.cfg: ``` // Custom firefox config

let { classes:Cc, interfaces:Ci, utils:Cu } = Components;

try {

 Cu.import("resource:///modules/AboutNewTab.jsm");
 let newTabURL = "file:///home/vallode/Documents/test/index.html";
 AboutNewTab.newTabURL = newTabURL;

} catch(e) { Cu.reportError(e); } ```

I have been attempting to use the `gBrowser` global to add an event listener to the new tab opening, but with no success. Could anyone point me in the right direction for something like this?
