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.

Hi Guys,

For a couple of weeks now, and since the last update (102.0.1 64-bit), my Firefox displays odd characters in some pages and in all emails.

This issue doesn't happen in safari or Chrome.

I've cleared all cookies, and browsing data multiple times and re-installed Firefox and the issue comes back every time.

Hello,

I want to download an extension using firefox policy templates. I put the location folder and extension id so that it cannot be deleted, but for some reason it doesn't want to install most of the times. The policy is added after using the gpupdate /force command and restarting the machine then open and close the browser. I wait 10 minutes for the policy to be configured on the computer and open the browser again and nothing happens. Also, the keys in the registry have the corresponding value type (checked in site https://admx.help/?Category=Firefox&Policy=Mozilla.Policies.Firefox::Extensions_Locked). But when I drag and drop with a mouse, the extension is installed and cannot be deleted. Can you tell me why does the extension not install when the policy is in effect?

I sent pictures from Group Policy Manager, Registry editor and showing that the extension can not be deleted after drag and drop with a mouse.

Thank you in advanced!

Using Firefox version 102:

Open console tools and navigate to Network tab Right click on a POST request "Edit and Resend" is no longer an option? There is still the resend option Clicking resend allows you to edit the request, but unfortunately the "Content-Length" attribute is not automatically updated like it was with edit and resend, so all requests fail after being edited. This is because the Content-Length header indicates the size of the message body, in bytes, sent to the recipient. When you add or removes bytes in a JSON request for example, it doesn't get updated. The attribute can also not be manually set. How can I use version 102 to edit and resend requests the same way I used to?

Thank you.

Hi! I recently made the switch from Chrome to Firefox and Im liking it aside from this one thing. When Im watching a video in full screen, moving the cursor to the top doesnt pop up Macs top bar (File, Edit, ..... battery, time).

This sounds like a banality but I mainly watch videos while getting ready, working etc, and I really need to see the time! Im used to always keeping the cursor at the top to see it. I searched around in settings and forums but didnt find any fix. The only solution seems to be to not use full screen which I think we can all agree just sucks in a major way.

Im using MacOS Monterey 12.3.1 and Firefox 102.0.1. Is there a way to fix this or nah? Any info much appreciated!

This story is a bit long, but please be patient.

I have used firefox for over 10 years, it can keep about a year's or 1.5 year's history (randomly expiration). So, I save places.sqlite per half year if I remember.

I have so many places.sqlite's backups. These backups proved that, in the past, firefox only delete some "expired" history records about one year ago or earlier in these years.

But suddenly Firefox started to only keep history in 3 months.

I save my profile in a path : "C:\Users\Admin\Documents\Firefox" and use -profile C:\Users\Admin\Documents\Firefox in shortcut.

And let's tell what happened(a bit complicated.)

I installed windows 10 in 24, July, in another harddisk. I entered the new windows, installed a firefox, and used my old profile as usual. It looks normal, until I returned to my old Windows 10, I noticed that, my history is kept for only three months and the left is gone.


I first thought that, the version in the new windows had wrong settings and deleted the old history, so I restored the backup, which is 2021.6.4-2022.7.24. But Firefox continued to delete my old "expired" history, after a while. This never happened before. (I am still in old windows now, from now on everything happened in old Windows 10)


Ok, I assumed that the new firefox in new windows 10 "comtaminated" my whole profile. After a really hard try I still can't find out what is the comtamination. So I created a brand new profile, copied:

all extensions and its settings, cookies, passwords, etc. just a few json and sqlite files.

And then I recovered the places.sqlite with my 2021.6.4-2022.7.24 version, which has about 60,000+ history.


And---guess what, firefox still deleted my old history.

This never happened before, for so many years.

Firefox used to delete "expired" history, that's true, but still can keep more than a year's records. But since I installed the new windows everything changed. I don't know why, and I don't even know their correlation between all these things.

I have to keep history more than a year because I need to check many records. 3 months is unacceptable.

Version: 102; which is months ago's version but it still delete my history! Actually I tried 100-104, same results.

I tried every possible idea, but it just delete my old history.

In conclusion, since the firefox(not international version, but local version by our country's official web) "comtaminated" my profile, I can no longer return the status that firefox keeps more than 1 years's record. I tried all possible methods, for example make a clean new firefox and only put my old places.sqlite(2021.6.4-2022.7.24) inside, but it just delete it to only 3 months left.

Everything sounds like magic. But I am a programmer too, and I don't believe magic. I checked the source code of history expiration. (decko-dev )(Yes, it doesn't have anyway to absolutely ensure preventing from deleting, but I can't find any code that just precisely keep 90 days' history, either.) I am not sure whether I found the right place.

My questions are below: 1. If firefox doesn't keep so many records all the time, then why I have so many backups with more than a timespan of 1+ years in these years(from firefox 20+ to now)? I used firefox for many years, I changed my profile or create new profile for so many times with so many versions, but none of them delete my history only 3 months left, at least give me one year+ left. 2.Did I correctly find the correct source code? 3.What triggered the firefox started to delete my "expired" history so precisely, only 90 days left? 4.I need a method to return to before 24.June, the time firefox history manager works well.

I am not local, so some words may be wierd, please forgive me. Any any information will help.

Windows has feature that displaying media control popup on its lock screen. Firefox has an option to turn this off via advanced setting, but turn "media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled" to "false" doesn't stop showing it up.

Also, on certain website (in my case tweetdeck), control screen of previously viewed and closed video is keep showing up and can't erase it unless restarting browser.

I asked this question on Microsoft forum but suggested it's Firefox issue. Does anyone have same problem? How can I fix this?

Hi guys. I'm on a Lenovo laptop, using Windows 11. Was NOT experiencing this issue (or any other issues) till today. That is, I've been able to download PDFs attached to Yahoo email for years, including recently (till today).

Trying to get Firefox to be DEFAULT instead of MS Edge, I changed some 'Apps associated with File Types', selecting Firefox as default for all file types that seemed appropriate, BUT, this issue then began.

Feeling I went too far, and should go step at a time, I reset All File Type settings back to default (MS recommended settings). Still can't open attached PDFs. I tried an Excel attachment and it opened fine.

Error I get is: "Firefox Can’t Open This Page To protect your security, dl-mail.ymail.com will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window."

The emails I used to recreate the error, were sending an email to myself, and attaching a PDF.

Other things I tried: I used Firefox with gmail email and the PDF attachment downloaded fine. I used MS Edge with Yahoo email and PDF attachment downloaded fine. Also, btw, CAN view a PDF attachment with Yahoo email. Just now download.

I CAN "open it in a new window" as the error suggests, than print to PDF, but don't want to live the rest of my life doing that.

Thanks in advance for any help that can be offered!!

One quality of life thing I really miss after switching from Chrome is the option to "Goto ip" when you highlight and right click on a local ip address.

I do a lot or networking and am going to local ip addresses all the time (ie 192.168.1.1 or 10.0.20.15). When I highlight an address in the local ranges in Chrome it gives the "Goto" option, but Firefox always offers "Search Google for"

I really miss this option and unfortunately all my searching has not yield a solution since search engines cant quite make sense of my requests.

Hopefully someone here can nail something down.

I had set up a userContent.css file in the past to pull up and fetch an image on my computer to display as a background on the homepage. It worked and did it's job until recently, when I had recently relocated a lot of my files around on my computer. I have redirected everything to where I want it to look, including the userContent.css file to the new location for the image I want as the background. Firefox loads the .css file correctly, and recognizes the file existing, but it won't load the image itself for some odd reason. It states it "may not load or link the file" because of a security error, and thus, can't load the image. I never had to deal with this before. How can I get Firefox to be able to load my image like I want it to? I have screenshots that I can provide, but this site doesn't want to upload them at the moment.
