I had this problem 2 years ago and somebody helped me fix it as follows:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. (2) In the search box above the list, type or paste URLB and pause while the list is filtered (3) Double-click the browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled preference to switch the value from true to false

HOWEVER --- I don't seem to have browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled in my new version 74.0. What happened to it? Does it have a new name now?

Note that I tried in Options / Preferences / Search

    I unchecked "Show search suggestions in location bar results

In Options / Preferences / Privacy

   I uncheck each of the boxes in the Location Bar section (History, Bookmarks, Open tabs).

For security reasons, all new FF distributions are tested. When checking the distribution kit version 68.5.0esr (exe for x86 and x64) - the antivirus software "VirusTotal" detected Trojan.Inject.bcbj.

I'm confused on how multiple accounts and sync work. Basically, I want to keep my personal browser usage from going into my work laptop.

I have 3 devices: 1.) Work laptop - always for work 2.) Mobile - always for personal use 3.) Home laptop - always for personal use

To keep my browsing history separate, I plan to use 2 firefox accounts: 1.) Work laptop - always Work firefox account 2.) Mobile - always Personal firefox account 3.) Home laptop - mostly Personal firefox account but occassionally switch to Work firefox account

I assume I can browse my Work browsing history at home by logging with my Work firefox account. But when I sync, will my personal browsing history be synced to my Work account? I don't want that to happen.

Hi all, am using Debian linux with Firefox 60.8.0esr (64-bit). I know the whole spiel about Firefox not supporting java applets any longer, but I have some old IoT devices that i need to get configured and they use a java applet for some portions of the configuration. I understand Firefox ESR 52 still supports java applets, and i've downloaded version 52.9.0esr and extracted it to its own location. Now i can start it without interferin with my v60 profile by running it like: "./firefox --no-remote --profile ." I had to go into options and turn off the automatic update because otherwise it updates it to v60. Then I downloaded jre-8u221-linux-x64.tar.gz and extracted that. Now the question is how do i get the plugin installed into the Firefox v52? thanks

In the admin account and all user accoutns, I had Firefox > Options > Advanced > NO UPDATES and turned OFF "Use a background service to install updates."

I created a new account on this computer. The VERY FIRST THING I did was go to Firefox > Options > Advanced > NO UPDATES and turned OFF "Use a background service to install updates."

Guess what. It updated. It updated for all accounts.

I've easily lost four work days of time in the first 8 months of 2019 because of FIrefox updates. I need a way to stop updates. ALL updates. FOREVER. ALL UPDATES UNCONDITIONALLY BLOCKED. No leakage. I do not want them with a goat. I do not want them on a boat. I do not want them here or there. I do not want them anywhere. Is there any remaining ambiguity?

The ways described above don't cut it. So let's think unconventionally. Is there a file I can set the protections on, so Firefox's update balks and gives up? Can I create a file that has a name that Firefox update expects, and give that file some content or property so that Firefox update fails?

Hi,

First of all, I would like to say that I am a Firefox user since 2007 (since we are in 2019, that's 12 years). I like it and I thank all the Firefox people that worked on it.

However, about two weeks ago I have updated my system from Debian 8 to Debian 10; and with it came a new version of Firefox.

And I don't like the way this new Firefox version looks: - it's ugly - it has out of proportion line spacing in the bookmarks - it has out of proportion line spacing in the Preferences menus - it is much less visual appealing than previous versions

Nevertheless, under the hood, I don't doubt that it is more advanced and better.

I just think it's a wrong move from the people leading Firefox at the moment. Maybe they believe they have to follow the (stupid) trend that many other software houses are following: - non intuitive icons - poor use of colors - exagerated simplifying in icons design - minimalistic screen organization - menus with less options, forcing the users to edit configuration files

All this leads to the user having to "try and guess", trying to discover how things work. 20 or 10 years ago, the softwares weren't so advanced, but they were more organized and with better menus. Today, if seems the need is to build something beautiful. But that beauty soon loses it charm after 5 minutes of interaction.

This is the sensation I get from interacting with Firefox nowadays. And it extends to the support forum, with lack of tast in the design, colors, etc. Too many steps back, in my opinion.

Using Firefox now is not as good an experience like it was some years ago. We need something that works, that has good menus, that we like to see. And not being forced to like something that others think it's the present trend. Firefox is used for the internet, so it needs to be a very good tool. Stop fooling around with it, please.

Also, when I try to solve this problem using themes, I'm stumped because I find some many themes. But the problem is that they are poor quality themes. Much quantity, but poor quality. And the search function, is horrible to say the least.

Besides, I don't understand that Firefox now calls themes to simply adding an image to the menu bar. Is that really a theme? Is this really a good service? I don't think so. I think this is dumb. And steers users away.

I don't care for flowers or manga characters in my menu bar. I just want well designed folder icons and line spacing that makes sense.

Why doesn't Firefox gives the user the choice of using the previous themes? Aren't we in 2019? Something like: Menu - Tools - Themes: - Firefox 55 theme - Firefox 56 theme - Firefox 57 theme [..] - Firefox xx theme

Can you imagine how many hours are you wasting from your millions of users that use Firefox to work and would benefit of something like this?

================================================

Having said this, now I present my goal with this post: I would like to know: - how can I reduce bookmarks line spacing?

I use Firefox to work everyday. I need it to be functional. I have thousands of bookmarks and I have organized them so they fit my screen.

Right now, I am losing much time scrolling up and down within my bookmark folders, because this new version of Firefox has a bigger line spacing than the version I used before.

Please see the attached picture.

Thank you.

How can I stop the "Important News" page on first launch of a new version Firefox ESR? Yes I know it only once but I want to suppress that notice/check page from opening. I have gone from version 60.9.0 to 68.2.0 I figured out the majority of the settings I needed to make in about:config using a mozilla.cfg file. Operating System: Windows 10 Browser: Firefox EST 68.2.0

What I tried: in my mozilla.cfg I added:

              pref("browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone","ignore"); 

But that did not work. I still see the "Important News" and I see that setting in my about config. Trouble shooting this is taking time having to roll back my VM every time :(

I also set the browser to not search for updates with: lockPref("browser.search.update", false);

There are several pinned tabs when I open my Firefox.

The problem is when there is no Internet connection, these tabs are displayed as requiring network connection. However when the network is connected, these tabs are not automatically updated - they still displayed as requiring network connection. I have to refresh each one of them.

Is that my configuration has problem, or the automatically refresh tab function is missing?

My ISP recently decommissioned its email server and I have since switch to a Gmail account. I was able to setup my Gmail account in Thunderbird but can't delete my previous email account that was decommissioned. I followed the instructions to delete the account but "Remove Account" is grayed out in the Account Actions drop down.

Any help or suggestions as to how I can delete my old email account from Thunderbird would be most appreciated.
