Hello folks

According to Firefox help pages, pinning an extension to the toolbar should work as follows:

"Click the extensions button (jigsaw puzzle Fx109ExtensionsButton icon) in the toolbar to open the extensions panel. Each extension in the panel has a menu button with a gear Fx91GearIcon icon. You can use this menu button to manage those extensions."

The extensions button doesn't seem to work like that for me. When I click the Extensions button I get several buttons (Recommendations, Extensions etc) on the left side of the page as in the first image attached (Firefox1).

If I then click the Extensions button I get to the Manage Extensions page, and if I then click the 3 dots (...) button on (say) Proton Pass I don't get a Pin to Toolbar option and clicking the Manage option opens the Proton Pass Details page (see image Firefox2) - none of the buttons on the any of the pages offers a Pin to Toolbar option.

Those extensions that are pinned to the toolbar, such as Adblock Plus ( see Firefox2 image), got pinned during installation and not by using the extensions button. Currently I seem to have no way of interacting with any extension via the extensions button.

Could be I'm doing something silly but any suggestions would be appreciated.

Regards Ken

Hello there!

I have been trying to edit an existing browser extension (for the sole reason of adding new features to it for myself), and I've been trying to add it to my Firefox browser. However, upon trying to install it to the browser, it throws an error saying: "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt". I've been trying to read more into this issue all across the internet, but none of the recommendations seem to be working.

I tested my extension locally and with using the about:debugging temporary add-on method, and everything seemed fine.

I tried to re-configurate the 'xpinstall.signatures.required' variable by setting it to false (even thought this method is considered unsafe in most cases), and the issue still occurs

I also tried adding a new gecko ID to it as stated in this article, but to no avail: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Add-ons/WebExtensions/manifest.json/browser_specific_settings

And last, but certainly not least, I tried compressing the extension with web-ext aswell.

My question is - is there a way to add this extension permanently to my browser without submitting it to Mozilla? I did not create this extension, I only added custom integrations to it for myself.

And more importantly - is there a way to add it to the basic Firefox browser, which is not Firefox developer of Firefox nightly? Or maybe create a desktop shortcut that will always start the browser in debug mode, always containing the extension as "temporary"?

I can see that many posts and questions have already been posted regarding this "custom add-on" topic, but my situation is a bit different since my goal is to only use this add-on by myself (and I'm also revisiting this topic since none of the previous suggestions worked in my case)

Any comments, helps, or even links would be greatly appreciated! Have a great day!

How can I restore a previous theme? I had a "colorfore" theme that Mozilla offered a few years ago set up in Firefox. It was perfect! I could see everything clearly with my aging eyesight.Then one of my synced computers needed a new Linux OS installation so I signed out of sync on that machine. Installed the new OS. When I started Firefox the first time I signed into sync. I got my history, bookmarks and bookmark bar, but no custom colors. Now my computer at work has its colors reset to the out of box colors too. I have lost the colorfore colors I have been using for several years now. How can I get the colorfore colors back? Thank you for your attention in this matter. I love Firefox, use it exclusively and contribute to Mozilla. Gregg Scholfield

As I understand, `autoconfig.js` (with `firefox.cfg`) can be used to have JavaScript run during startup to control Firefox's UI elements.

I have set up `autoconfig.js` in my `/usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/defaults/pref` folder (I'm on EndeavourOS Linux). As instructed here, I've already put the two required files, `autoconfig.js` and `firefox.cfg` in their correct folders (`/usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/defaults/pref` and `/usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition` in my machine).

The file `firefox.cfg` contains the following code:

 //
 (() => {
   var tabbar = document.getElementById("TabsToolbar");
 })();


However, every time I run Firefox, this message will appear:

 "Failed to read the configuration file. Please contact your system administrator."


If I empty out the `firefox.cfg` file, Firefox will run normally without showing the error message. It will also run normally if I just have something like this in the file:

 //
 (() => {
   var testVar = "";
 })();


I don't understand why the JavaScript code can't access the Firefox UI elements through `document` or `window.document`. If `autoconfig.js` isn't build for that, what should I use to change my browser's UI elements through JavaScript?

Thank you.

I've just completed a new install of Thunderbird on a computer (Windows 10 -release 115.8.0 32 bit) and find that the message list does not have the usual columns for From, Date, Subject etc and no column headings. Instead each message in the list has the above message characteristics spaced out over two rows. This format applies to all three Layout Views (Classic, Vertical, and Wide). I prefer the usual column format which allows for more messages to show since only one row is used per message.

How do I get the usual columnar format to show in the message list window? I'be been all over the View and Setup screens and just can't find any function for this.

Thanks, JS

Starting with Firefox version 120, you can set Firefox to automatically launch whenever you start or restart your Windows computer. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/open-firefox-automatically-when-you-start-computer

The browser shows opt-in prompt for the user to easily setup this behavior. However, I do not want to do this.

When I click "No thanks", the prompt goes away, but couple days later, it returns. I guess that an update resets the prompt status.

Is there a way to permanently disable this opt-in prompt without allowing Firefox to start automatically with the computer?

I want to disable the "language-aware word selection when double-clicking on text" feature that shipped in 122.0 (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/122.0/releasenotes/)

This new feature is cool, but it has actually slowed down the speed at which I select text. Originally, I could double-click to select an entire sentence, but now a double-click only selects a single word.

It would be great if there was a way to disable this feature for a specific language.

Thank you.

Removing Tabs Bar in Firefox Browser on Windows

I read another article (https://support.mozilla.org/es/questions/1417387#answer-1588947) under spain link, i think, and the solution said to write "TabsToolbar-customization-target { visibility: collapse !important; }" somewhere. Where do I go to write that?

I tried the console by pressing f12, but that doesn't seem like that's it. In that article it also mentions to go to about:config and change the status of "browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar" to false, or delete it, but didn't work either.
