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?

Is it possible to open Firefox from command line (or shortcut) without loading the URL or tab bars?

My current workaround is to load the URL and then click a bookmarklet which opens the tab in a popup window. Is there a way to open a link directly in a popup window?

I've scanned about:config to no avail, and it seems all the popup extensions just do what my bookmarklet does.

Ideally there would be a command line flag like --popup which does exactly that, but the closest thing I could find is --headless and --kiosk which don't work that way.

I also made a new profile named "popup" and intended to add extensions which hide the nav bar, but it looks like extensions aren't allowed to do that any more.

I'm on Windows 10 but still use Windows Live Mail. I used to be able to click the "Email Link" icon on my Firefox toolbar to automatically mail the current URL to someone using Live Mail. I can go into Options>Applications>mailto and link it to xlmail.exe but I can't add the argument "/mailurl:%" to the end of the command line so that it properly constructs an email message. This used to work - does anybody have a suggestion (other than finally abandoning Live Mail or Firefox)?

Thanks.

Hello,

i have a problem with a personal webextensions, that i have written for my personal use. I add a new protocol in windows 10 pe registry (player://) and use this to start a special windows script.

My extensions put an new menu-entry on right click and rewrite the url from the tab with the the protocol (play://https://www.youtube.com/asanexample).

Now he does nothing in the newest versions of Firefox. I use

browser.tabs.update({url: "play://https://www.youtube.com/asanexample"});

and nothing happends. The tab.url says www.youtube.com, but nothing happends. But when i call

function updateFirstTab(tabs) { var updating = browser.tabs.update(tabs.id, { // active: true, // loadReplace: true, url: "play://https://www.youtube.com/asanexample"}); updating.then(onUpdated, onError); }

var querying = browser.tabs.query({currentWindow:true}); querying.then(updateFirstTab, onError);

and then an:

browser.tabs.create({

   		url:"https://example.org"
 		});

He loads the protocol page and the new created example.org page.

When i use tabs.create he call the protocol, like my old tabs.update code.

Is that an security change? But why tabs.update functioned when i call a tabs.create after it? When i must use tabs.create how can i seamlessly close the newly created tab after call the protocol?

I hope it is a bug in web extension;), why my code has functioned with the tabs.update() so many firefox version along.

thx

I have just switched to a new Macbook laptop. If firefox, when clicking on the bookmark star in the address field, the drop down box opens to edit the bookmark. When clicking on Choose Bookmark, the list that opens contains only 6 lines of folders to choose from. With my last few computers, I was easily able to search and get an answer on how to increase the number of lines from 6 to whatever I wanted. Unfortunately, I never wrote it down and now I cannot recall how to do this. Can anyone tell me how to do this? Thank you!

Hello!

I was wondering if there are any plans to add a feature like this (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-CA/firefox/addon/auto-tab-discard/) to Firefox? I tend to keep lots of tabs open at once, and I'd love to be able to pause unused tabs without closing them. But I'd prefer to avoid giving an add-on access to all of my data. So I keep hoping that this type of feature will get incorporated into Firefox. Do you know if there are any plans like this?

Thanks so much in advance and for the work that you're doing!

There are references to 'multi line' text and I've tried making sure I have more than one line but still get no spell check. I am able to see spell check for Facebook in Edge and Chrome, but don't want to chenge my browser! Thanks in advance for any help :-)

Hi,

I get these unwanted advertisements for Google and Amazon whenever I go to type in the address bar (see attached images). How do I disable them? I can't see any option in the "Search" section of Preferences or searching Preferences in general. My search engine of choice is DuckDuckGo, and I do not have an Amazon account. Why does Firefox think have a desire to interact with these companies?

Thanks in advance for your help!

In firefox 77 I could choose different search engine for example duckduckgo as default search engine in private mode. In 78.0.1 this setting is missing, no way to search selected text privately or set different search engine for private mode. Only workaround is to go to about:config and enable "browser.search.separatePrivateDefault.ui.enabled". This fixes both problems. Is this still in beta and not officially available or are my settings wrong?
