Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

Hi, I am a bit of a panaroid person, so regarding to the permission: "access my data for all websites", does that means an add-on has the ability to make input in the background by itself? For example, whether an add-on is able to control my account on a website, changing the settings, password, and etc?

I understand that there's this help page, but a lot of times site developers right click and hotkeys disabled for security reasons and this renders me unable to take a screenshot of a website.

I've also tried to add "Take a Screenshot" button from "Customize Toolbar" option to my toolbar, but most of the time it is disabled, even on support.mozilla.org page. To enable it, I need to remove it and re-adding it again with "Customize Toolbar" option.

Is there any way to re-enable "Take a Screenshot" option in 3-Dot menu? If not, is there any sane way to keep "Take a Screenshot" enabled for the rest of my Firefox session without me needing to remove and re-add it again everytime I need to take a screenshot?

There are many mssages found in "Spam" filters aare customzed and work. Standard settings are used as "run manually" and "run before Junk recogniozing". Fact is that it works manually only. Why? And: In the maun dialogue the pull-down is set to "run in inbox". because it should run _before_ marking as junk. When I opern the main filter dialogue this is cahged to the actual folder (feature?). Nevertheless it should run before put into the folder "Spam"...

I'm so unhappy now I don't know where to begin.

I was having trouble loading a website (lowes.com), continually getting an "access denied" error message. It occurred to me that I'd read somewhere that if you told Firefox to "forget this site," it might solve the "access denied" problem. I didn't remember how to do this, though, so I searched online and found a site that said that adding the "Remove" button to the Toolbar and clicking it would solve the problem. I dutifully added the "Remove" button, then, before clicking it, I triple-checked that the "Forget the last Five minutes" was selected and not any longer period of time. After all, I didn't want to lose everything!

Well, I did.

I had literally hundreds of tabs that I was working on open — they're all gone. All of my history — years worth — is missing. More things may have been deleted, but, to be honest, I'm afraid to check.

What did I do wrong? Or is the "Remove" button buggy?

And while I believe that everything that's missing now is irretrievably lost, if anyone has a hack to recover anything, I would be so, so grateful if you'd let me know.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. I wrote this post up once, hit "Submit," then, after an interminable period of time, the screen went to a blank page. My original post has never appeared. Is there perhaps something wrong with my Firefox (which has been perfectly fine up until now)?

How to disable gestures in Firefox on Android?

Dear Mozilla Support,

I'm using an android tablet in online teaching, presenting PDF documents via BigBlueButton (in case that the application matters). I had issues with the Chrome browser, because very often when writing manual notes on the PDF, BBB lost connection with the pen (although the browser still reacted to the pen).

I found that Firefox worked much better, i.e., the pen-related incompatibility between BBB and Chrome has never occurred with Firefox. Thank you for that!

However, after upgrading the tablet a few days ago, a very annoying problem occurs in Firefox: It now tries to understand "gestures". The consequence: When I present a PDF file, that I turn to landscape full screen on the tablet, and try to write on the left half of the PDF file, Firefox apparently interprets my handwriting as gestures and thus keeps switching tabs. It already gave me several angry fits during my lectures.

The local support at my university told me that gestures could in the past be disabled via "about:config", but alas, the new firefox version does not allow to open "about:config".

I believe it is two bad choices of the Firefox developers to use gestures by default and to prevent the user from changing the default. But criticism aside: How can I solve the problem, or at least work around the problem? The local support told me that using the nightly build might be a solution. Would it? If yes, how to obtain it?

Best regards, Simon

Is anyone out there familiar with the "Mile Wide Back" addon? It allow you to go to the previous web site page or the next page with a left/right mouse click on the left page border. I'm hoping someone who knows it's history will have a workaround for a problem it has. Apparently, the developer is no longer available.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/milewideback-webext/?utm_content=addons-manager-reviews-link&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_source=firefox-browser

I've been using it for years. It was modified for quantum, but there is a problem. One of it's functions is to scroll thru tabs with a mouse wheel turn. I wouldn't want that feature even if it did work right, but it's broken.

One lone click of the mouse wheel on the left page border and it scrolls thru 6 tabs. Two clicks, 12+ tabs, etc. There's no option to disable that feature.

However, in it's pre-quantum version, there were about:config commands that could modify it's behavior.

I have another handy app, Volume2. You can set it up to change volume with a mouse wheel turn while touching the left border of any window. Up until recently, this feature superseded the Mile Wide Back function, but lately it stopped helping.

Since neither the apps have changed in over a year, I believe the change in behavior is due to Firefox 88,which was released around the same time this started happening.

I have created all the filters I need in my Thunderbird email account. When a new email comes in I don't know any are there when I look at my folders because none are highlighted. I have to manually click on each folder to see if there are any new emails in there. Usually there are and if I hadn't manually opened each and every one I wouldn't know they were there. How do you get a new email to show up in the corresponding folder it arrives in after being filtered? Anything that ISN'T filtered and shows up in my INBOX does show up and is highlighted.

Is it because the folders were imported from Outlook rather than being created in Thunderbird? This is the only reason I can think of.

Suddenly, the screen shot option is missing from the "page options" menu. There are numerous "solutions" out there, but none of them work. I type about:config in the address bar and the browser takes me to the search results, not the config screens shown in the solutions. Selecting any of the search results just makes things worse. My version of FireFox is 88.0 (64 bit).
