Just updated a friend's computer from Windows 7 to 10. Installed firefox over previous ESR and now there's no way to remove the search bar from the new tab page. On my W10 system, the search bar isn't there, not sure how or why, but on her's there's no option NOT to show it as there used to be.

I found some VERY old (2014) info on this but doesn't seem to be up to date.

PLEASE give us our options back and stop taking them away, sheesh, getting as bad as Microsoft.

Is there a workaround for this to remove the redundant search bar from the new tab page since you can search from the address bar?

Thanks!

I accidentally pressed a lot of keys on my keyboard and for some reason the default colors of Firefox have changed. I found out that by using Ctrl+Alt+D that I can switch the colors back to normal or to the colors that now appear automatically, but this only works for one tab. If I open a new tab, it shows the weird colors (see images below). I tried looking up specific shortcuts for Firefox considering the shortcut mentioned before (Ctrl+Alt+D) only works on Firefox. But I can't find any shortcut tied to that combination. I'm unsure what to do and how to fix this.

I would appreciate it if someone could tell me how to fix this.

My only choice is: Open with Windows Media Player x86 (default)

Hello, I have been using Firefox as my main browser for more than a decade. One could say i am some Mozilla fanboy, having convinced many of my friends and relatives to use Firefox instead of any chrome based options (Which there are to many these days). It struck me today, as i was reworking some workflow elements in many programs i use daily, that it is impossible to change any key binding in Firefox anymore. I know it has been a while now, and i searched all over the web for an answer or a solution, but at this point it is clear that other than going in the code and recompiling Firefox manually, it is not possible. I stumbled upon the (only) extension that allows to change some shortcuts, but the two that i wanted to change are impossible to configure from it, being disabling only f12 as i would use it for other things but i do not want to lose the dev console and also ctrl+L to open the address bar, it is quite inconvenient and would much prefer to use ctrl+spacebar as it matches many other bindings i am using with other software. There have been many other features that were changed in the recent years that made me start to look for an alternative, as i see features melting away almost as quickly as the user base of the product.

I do understand that one person's problem is not going to change the way a big piece of software is working, but i am wondering, why are the users losing such features as basic as customizing key bindings in a piece of software that used to be so incredibly customizable in the past? Why is the only viable option to anything chrome based losing it's edge over the competition? Is Firefox v150 be based on the chromium engine or will it die before?

Thank you in advance, and no, i don't need the link to the shortcut page, i already have it.

How can I completely remove the tab bar and regain 3/4 of an inch of screen space. It would be nice if Mozilla would just have a on/off button for it. I've tried creating a folder called Chrome within my Firefox Profile folder. I then created a text file within that folder and named it userChrome.css. I put this string in the text file #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } This did not work, does anyone know the best method for getting rid of the annoying tab bar?

Thank you

I need to disable this horrible translator that is now showing up on top of every page I visit, It keeps showing up even after choosing a translation or disabling translations for that language. That is probably a bug, but I don't want to wait for a fix, I need to be able to see the pages I visit completely, this thing prevents me from clicking buttons and and is really anoying.

This is the built-in translation feature since I do not use any translation plugins, and started showing up after an upgrade.

Hello!

I have been using this userChrome.css code to hide the tab bar if there is only one tab (on Windows):

tab:only-of-type, tab:only-of-type + #tabs-newtab-button {

   display: none !important;

}

#tabbrowser-tabs, #tabbrowser-arrowscrollbox, #tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-arrowscrollbox {
   min-height: 0 !important;

}

Since one of the recent Firefox updates, this code does no longer work. Maybe because there is a new element in the tab bar: A drop-down list at the right.

Any idea how to make the above code work again?

Hey all, I just updated Firefox on PC and the updater asked a couple questions. I chose "Visionary" as the answer to a question because it suited me the best out of all the options. However, this also changed the colors of my browser menu and toolbar to green. The thing is, while green is a fine color, I would never select it as "my" color for anything ever.

I've tried to change the color in about:preferences, but nothing I can find seems to work. Any ideas?

Thanks!

So I just updated to version 106.0.1, and I noticed something new in the far right corner of the screen, an arrow with a dropdown function listed as view all tabs. I have no need for this and tried to use the customize toolbar option to remove it. It did not work. How do I get rid of this thing? It's just kinda taking up space on the screen as I doubt I'm ever gonna use it.

Any tips here?

Hi, everyone. My multirow bookmarks no longer seem to work since my latest update to 107.0 (64 bit). My computer crashed and when it came back up Firefox no longer worked. I reinstalled it and have a bit of cleanup to do, but everything works now except my faithful (up-to-now) multirow toolbar. Here's the code in my userChrome.css file.

/* Multi-Row Bookmarks Toolbar */

  1. PersonalToolbar {
 /* Override max-height */
 min-height: unset !important;
 max-height: unset !important; */

}

  1. PlacesToolbar > hbox:first-child {
   display: block

}

  1. PlacesToolbarItems {
   display: flex;
   flex-wrap: wrap

}

Previously, this was in my profile folder. If I move this out of the profile folder, my browser works fine but there is no multi-row toolbar. If I put it back into the profile folder, I have a multi-row toolbar, but no contentd in the main window.

I am perplexed. Help? --elizabeth

I recently upgraded my system and, after installing and using Firefox, I notice the Find (Ctrl + F) bar is now at the bottom of the window. Whereas, it was previously at the top (which is more like every other application I use).

After some head scratching and web searches, I remembered I had to fix this issue previously (after a Firefox upgrade some time back). The method to fix it then could be found here: [there a way to put the Find Bar at top] That link is of course to the same question asked 4 years back.

I have once again followed the procedure there explained per: • Access my Firefox profile folder. In my case:

  C:\Users\<Me>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\5ym42ewi.default

• Create folder therein called ‘chrome’ • In that folder create a file called ‘userChrome.css’ • In that file add text:

  .browserContainer > findbar {
    -moz-box-ordinal-group: 0;
  }

However, after doing that (and restarting Firefox), the Find bar stubbornly remains glued to the bottom of the window.

Can anyone tell me how to solve this issue?

As a separate note to the developers: This issue is long-standing, that a web search reveals is still relevant to many users. Any chance of considering making it a standard option?

Compact mode: bookmark spacing/padding in Firefox 112.0 on Windows 10 - (since version 89?)

Firefox 112.0 running on Windows 10 64-bit laptop with a small (pixel geometry) display screen has unnecessarily large padding (white space) around each bookmark as I navigate bookmarks on the bookmark bar.

I believe this was a change instituted around version 89 (in a nutshell, I could see more - twice as many? - bookmarks listed within a bookmark folder with version 88/before. The vertical whitespace between bookmarks within a folder is excessive and makes it much more necessary to scroll within a (long) list of bookmarks in a folder when looking for one.

There was a procedure posted in the discussion below on how to set and enable "compact density".

Bookmark Padding in New Firefox Versions 2 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1369996

The procedure below was attempted - browser.compactmode.show enabled, browser restarted, however, I cannot fin "Customize Toolbar" and "compact".

"go to - about:config search - "browser.compactmode.show" - change to TRUE , then close that window go to - Customize Toolbar at the bottom of that page, there a box called Density. Click that, you'll see "compact (not supported)" Apparently, it IS supported because I chose that. (it looked like it ignored my choice) After I closed Customize Toolbar, the bookmarks were compact spaced again. Exactly how I need them."

Is this fixable/solvable?

I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 . . . I was doing this (below), to customize my header and footer, but in this version of FF, I no longer see this in Options - only in: about:config . . . keyword "footer" . . . there, I would have to change it for 5 different ways of printing (to printers or to PDF)

I need to get rid of printing the URL in the footer - many times, it's too long, and I don't need it.

Where did the Page Setup option go?

I see in the current Print Options, you have to go to - More Settings / Margin / Custom - to see those. Why would they put this so many levels down?

It used to be: File / Page Setup / Margins & Header/Footer . . . "Customize" Headers & Footers:

Option 1 (left) . . . there are two leading spaces:

 > > &T
 > > &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Option 2 (left) . . . get rid of the ">"s, and just have the two leading spaces:

 &T
 &U . . . &D . . . &PT
