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?

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)?

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.

Suddenly, the screen shot option is missing from the "page options" menu. There are numerous "solutions" out there, but none of them work.

I cannot believe they set it like the present way that overrides your existing page as the default. Its like they've never used the browser. Such a bonehead move. Its especially irritating when you've been writing up something, pouring your heart out, then have it whisked away by forgetting that the pinhead designer is going to deem your present page of negligible value and wipe it out as it carries you to the History link. And to think it hasn't been changed in years.

Maybe something in About:Config can override this idiocy? I searched for "history" but didn't see anything that seemed related to this.

Looked it up on Add-Ons but couldn't find anything.

By the way Mozilla, its really time to employ negative filtration in the Add-Ons search. So you can put in a very general term (because you don't want to eliminate possibilities by being specific) then filter out the inapplicable results. Its called a dash and its been used for decades by Ebay and Google. Amazon used to use it but it gave us too much power so that was snatched away a while back. Say you're looking for something that will control the History function. When you search for History almost all the results involve wiping/deleting it. So by using History -wipe -wiping -delete -deleting the results get more relevant to my needs. As they say, cast a wide net if you want to catch big fish. The size of the netting filters out the smaller fish caught.

But it doesn't work. And about:newtab also doesn't work

I know that I can do chrome_url_overrides, to replace newtab with my own page, but I really wanted to run my JS code on existing inbuilt homepage.

I know that I can run my own CSS via userContent.css, but how do I run my own JS?

Can I even run scripts at about:newtab? Maybe its not supported through api, since https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Add-ons/WebExtensions/Match_patterns doesn't show any example of accessing it. If so, where is about:newtab HTML file located? Maybe I could inject my code through file, without making extesion.

Hey,

When entering a password on some website, I have a dropdown list of all saved passwords for this website and every saved password has the "from this website" line under it. This makes the dropdown list extremely long (in terms of its height).

I would love to get rid of the sign "from this website", so that I see a more compact list of saved passwords without those useless lines "from this website".

I have already turned off the "signon.includeOtherSubdomainsInLookup" feature, all that is left to make the dropdown list of passwords look normal (just like it used to be before all the new pointless changes).

I hope more experienced firefox users can help me make my browser more user-friendly to me.
