Since the latest update of Firefox, I now notice that each time I download anything the downloads icon in the toolbar expands the download history and remains in front of the browsing window until I click out of it. This behavior is reminiscent of the Chrome browser opening a pop-up bar every time I download anything which had to be manually closed — a regular irritant. I can see where some may prefer to have the pop ups, but I don't appreciate it becoming the default. Is there any way to disable this behavior so that it downloads in the background as it used to?

In every other App (PC and browser) my mouse scroll wheel behaves normally but with Sheets, in Firefox browser, the slightest wheel movement causes the sheet to scroll dozens of lines at a time. It doesn't misbehave with Sheets in Chrome. I've tried changing mouse settings and settings in Firefox but to no avail. Is there a setting somewhere in Sheets or Firefox that I can change to reduce the scroll speed?

For some whatever-reasons (TLDR; I need to see the whole domain (including subdomains) clearly, unlike the default of only highlighting the TLD&second-level domains[1]) I want to disable the color-distinction which highlights TLD and second level domains.[2] Is there config to do so? If not where should I propose one?

Thanks.

[1]: for example ko.wikipedia.org and en.wikipedia.org will have wikipedia.org highlighted, and that's what I can't accept because ko.wikipedia.org (Korean) and en.wikipedia.org (English) is completely different site. (Some might say you can distinguish by language, but there are some English sites which shares the same domain on wikimedia.org, so you get the point here.) [2]: From the screenshot you can see only `wikipedia.org` is highlighted. I want to make it highlight all of en.wikipedia.org. (If I need to highlight everything including the site path below the TLD, I can accept that.)

I have attempted to download and use a highlighter in 3 previous occasions, now...(maybe like a fool) have made yet another attempt. Why do developers, etc., make it so difficult to first of all: Understand how to use it? Then how and where is it to be found then activated when reading an article that we want to highlight...? ? ? ? ?

Come on guys.......please start thinking like a lowly end user out here and stop slapping each other on the back when you produce something within your labs. Sorry ...... but I am sick of dealing with this sort of thing.

Very dissatisfied user of anything web and internet...! !

Is there a way to create a keyboard shortcut to send a link to Mac Mail? There's a toolbar icon to do that and I'd love to just use a keyboard shortcut. Safari makes this easy. Command-i sends the page link to a selected email program, plus the text from reader view. It'd be great to do something similar in Firefox.

Currently the fonts at the top of the page (tab headers, address bar, search bar, booksmarks) are all set to a larger font. I don't know how they got changed but they are too big now. If I try change font size and style in settings nothing happens. It is not how it looked on first install and using another browser has font sizes of a more practical size. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling Firebox and also doing a refresh and it doesn't change anything.

Its almost like a bug that has made Firefox set these fonts larger than they should and not able to modifying them again.

I cannot for the life of me work out how to fix this and its very off putting to the point, short of a full OS reinstall I'll have to start using another browser.

I am reinstalling Windows\Firefox, and would like to hide\remove Bookmarks Toolbar & Other Bookmarks, as shown on the images. The Delete Folder option is greyed out for both, and Other Bookmarks is empty.

Both were hidden\removed in my original installation, but I can't remember how I did that. I've seen posts mentioning e.g. browser.toolbars.bookmarks.2h2020 (it doesn't exist) in About:config, right-clicking on the Other Bookmarks and uncheck it (it doesn't exist).

I'm using Firefox 101.0.1 (64 bit).

Hello,

I've been corresponding with LastPass about this, but they now refer me to Firefox support.

I am using: Windows 11 Pro: Version 10.0.22000 Build 22000 Firefox browser: 101.0.1 (64-bit) LastPass Add-on for Firefox: 4.97.0.2 Phone: Samsung Galaxy S9+ with Android 10.0 LastPass Authenticator app on phone installed: version 2.7.0

Hello,

Enabling LastPass authenticator/passwordless has worked for my Chrome and Edge browsers on my Windows 11 PC [LastPass Version: 4.97.0]. However, it does NOT work with Firefox, so I need further help.

When I close the Firefox browser [version 101.0.1 (64-bit)]and re-launch it, then click on the LP extension icon [version 4.97.0.2] I first get a LP pop-up requesting “Accept Permissions” (see attached screenshot).

When I click through that with Accept, I get a regular LP login prompt requesting both my email and master password.

After I enter my credentials, THEN I get a Multifactor Authentication pop-up on the PC and the Authenticator [version 2.6.0] app prompts on my phone [Samsung Galaxy S9+ with Android 10.0]. (see screenshot) When I use the phone to enter Accept and my Authenticator PIN, then the browser extension is logged on as I would expect.

If I leave Firefox open and log out of my LP account then click the browser LP icon to log back in, I get the Use Authenticator button. When I select it, the Authenticator app on the phone pops up and log in is smooth, as I would expect.

However, when I click on the LP icon on the Firefox browser, I get (another) notice that I can activate Passwordless (see screenshot). When I accept that, I have to provide my master password again. Even though I have turned on the Passwordless feature several times, If I close Firefox and re-open it, and then click on the LP icon, it does not invoke the Authenticator. Instead, I have to repeat everything. It seems like closing Firefox does something to delete the Authenticator option saved in LP/Firefox.

In both Chrome and Edge, I have settings to delete browser history when they are closed. This does not seem to affect the Authenticator behavior. However, I have set the same settings in Firefox to delete browser history on close, but the Authenticator behavior is not as expected.

What setting in LP or Firefox can be used to have the Authenticator setting survive the browser being closed? Also, how do I avoid having to go through the Permissions prompt every time I launch Firefox and try to open the LP extension?

Thanks, Dave Hejde (970) 219-8843
