Where did I see that article on XYZ. I'd like to regain a train of thought/investigation. Is bookmarks and history all there is? In reading about "Activity Stream" this seemed like the solution but it seems to lack an awareness of clustered, goal-directed activity. Is "Top Sites" and "Highlights" all there is to Activity Stream? Looking for some deeper integration/intelligence around re-displaying my history.

On my Samsung Tablet, if I select a 'private browsing' window the screen clearly changes (address bar has a purple line etc) so it is very clear if one is in standard browsing or private browsing mode. However, under Cinnamon Mint Linux the screen has no obvious apparent changes when a private window is selected.

I much prefer the visual indication version as it avoids sessions operating in the wrong mode.

I am asking if a similar feature might please be incorporated into the Linux Mint version.

Thank you

I want DuckDuckGo search engine URL to be "https://start.duckduckgo.com" instead of default "https://duckduckgo.com". How can I accomplish this?

Simply removing DuckDuckGo search engine from settings and then adding start.duckduckgo.com to search engines do not work as it produces "Search engine with this name already exists" error.

Any tips?

Well, I am feeling very upset right now, but I will try to tell my issue quietly. I submitted an addon in last January called "Classical Music Only" https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/classical-music-only/ that is open source and hosted on Github. Yesterday, some irresponsible reviewer, for some reason, set my addon as rejected and removed it from the addon store without a single warning. The reason as was emailed to me, is that the code has obfuscation. The code was acutally built using Webpack and minified. But the source code is available on Github https://github.com/classicalmusiconly/classicalmusiconly-extension and you can follow the instructions and build it yourself. And you can simply compare the hash of the zip file of the contents of the dist directory with the uploaded zip file to the addon store to make sure that they are the same file. So why did this reviewer remove my addon abruptly and without a warning, that's something I don't know and I find it unprofessional and suspicious to say the least. The funny thing is that he's asking for how to generate the final XPI. XPI? really? does this guy even know what he's talking about?

I've got Mozilla-Plugins like LastPass and NordVpn, where I can enter my username or my email account at first, but each time I try to switch to the next box , where I should be able to enter my Password, either by cursor or tab the Plugin window closes instantly.

I have already tried it with every other plugin disabled to pinpoint if it's maybe a problem another plugin causes, but that's not it.

OS: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, but I had the same problem on Ubuntu 17.04 LTS

So every idea is appreciated!

I downloaded archived data of my own Facebook and Gmail accounts. The downloads were complete, but after the system woke up from suspension, the status of the files became "file moved or missing", while I didn't move or deleted the files. I tried to download again, and the same things happened. I use Firefox 60.0.2 and Ubuntu 18.04.

My Top Sites works well if there is a short name under the tile or I recognize the thumbnail. In other cases I see something like "Websu..." as the title. Hover over that and I should see a tooltip with the long name completed.

Is it possible for Firefox to put tooltips for when the name ends in "...?"

Is there another work-around I can use -- create a thumbnail that better identifies the site is one that comes to mind. Rename the site with a shorter name?

Thank you.

Dear Sirs,

I tried to improve Firefox performance by following the steps at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Firefox_on_RAM

In brief,

   open about:config in the address bar
   set browser.cache.disk.enable to "false" (double click the line)
   verify that browser.cache.memory.enable is set to "true" (default value)
   add the entry (right click->new->integer) browser.cache.memory.capacity and set it to the amount of KB you'd like to spare, or to -1 for automatic cache size selection. (Skipping this step has the same effect as setting the value to -1.) [I skipped]
   profile backup using tar zcvfp ~/firefox_profile_backup.tar.gz ~/.mozilla/firefox/xyz.default
   creation of a script:

firefox-sync

  1. !/bin/sh

static=main link=xyz.default volatile=/dev/shm/firefox-$USER

IFS= set -efu

cd ~/.mozilla/firefox

if [ ! -r $volatile ]; then mkdir -m0700 $volatile fi

if [ "$(readlink $link)" != "$volatile" ]; then mv $link $static ln -s $volatile $link fi

if [ -e $link/.unpacked ]; then rsync -av --delete --exclude .unpacked ./$link/ ./$static/ else rsync -av ./$static/ ./$link/ touch $link/.unpacked fi

First execution of the script: $ killall firefox firefox-bin $ chmod +x ~/bin/firefox-sync $ ~/bin/firefox-sync

Script calling every login and logout: echo '~/bin/firefox-sync' | tee -a ~/.bash_logout ~/.bash_profile >/dev/null

After this Google Play Books fails with the error:

Can't open book

To read books on Google Play, set your web browser to allow cookies for books.googleusercontent.com. Learn more

Firefox

   Open Firefox.
   Click on the Firefox menu > Preferences > Privacy.
   Under “History,” select Use custom settings for history.
   Next to “Accept cookies from site,” click Exceptions.
   Under “Address of website,” type books.googleusercontent.com.
   Click Allow.

Did that many times. Kept failing. Restored the first setting set browser.cache.disk.enable to true again. Kept failing. Loaded again the cookie exeption for playbooks. Worked.

Then I restored the disk.enable setting to false, and since that Google Play Books won't work anymore with either setting, cookie exeption or anything.

I'll apreciate any guideline before the profile deletion; or if it helps you to improve Firefox I'll be glad to help.

Regards,

Nicolás Adamo
