I want everything on my drive only. Not on cloud thru One Drive. I have tried searching but everything I find in incorrect. For example PC settings one drive etc. I can't find anything that is correct for instructions. I don't even see anything that says as a one drive option. My next question is then what happens to everything that has one drive in the path where do they go? I don't want my local information saved anywhere other than my computer not a cloud somewhere. Is this something you can direct me to where I can solve this? Thanks

I'm trying Firefox again after many years in the Edgy wilderness. In Firefox in Windows, you used to be able to specify where your bookmarks were located. I store all my files (documents, spreadsheets, etc) in a complex structure on my C drive and, ideally, I should be able to store my Firefox bookmarks in the same structure. It just doesn't make sense to store the bookmarks in a separate location. I'm pretty sure you used to be able to do this by specifying the root of the bookmarks structure as c:/Documents, but I can't see how to do it in the current version.

Whenever I log on to my bank's web site, I'm sent an audible signal that invites me to start a chat session with a bank agent. The problem is that the audible alert is so loud that it startles me. This is very annoying. I called the bank's help line and was told there was no way they could adjust the sound volume. I would like to know if it's possible for Firefox to decrease the volume for that web site.

I've just tried to save something from firefox on linux(Manjaro KDE) and was baffled that there doesn't seem to be a way to manually enter the path and navigate to it in the save dialog. In addition to that, there are many locations missing and I can't seem to find a way to add new custom or favorites ones either.

All that combined means it was impossible to save my file directly to a network location, which is something I very often need to do. It just seems insane for such a basic feature to be missing and I've found a 4 years old thread about it meaning nothing has been done to fix this since? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1279125

The only way I can see would be to mount the network path(not a good solution for one offs) and navigate to it(a symlink can make it closer to one of the existing shortcut but still annoyingly require more clicks) every time but that's very tedious since most of my saving is on a specific server drive.

Hi , I often download photos from Firefox by topic to make videos. Is there any software or application on Firefox that can help me pre-name the image ?

For example: I'm looking for pictures of Trees and Sea

when I click to save image as for Sea images, it often gives random names and I end up having to rename the images to Sea-0001, Sea-0002

if a photo named Thailandbay-34636734-45747457

Therefore, my usual way is to write Sea- and copy the text

and when I save a photo when click to save image as, I will change the name in Hud , I paste it and it becomes

Sea-Thailandbay-34636734-45747457

and in my work file I'll sort the photos by name

So , is there any application on Firefox that allows me to preset the word Sea- ? That means every time I click save image as, the system will automatically name it Sea-Thailandbay-34636734-45747457

Thank you

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!

If I right click on an iframe when browsing in a container tab, and select "This Frame -> Open in New Tab", the new tab is not in the same container as the source tab. In fact it is not in any container.

Whereas when middle-clicking on a normal link to open it in a new tab, the new tab is in the same container as the source tab.

Is this a bug? Seems like a bug to me. Surely we would want the new tab to use the same container as the source tab?

I had to Restart/Refresh Firefox because I lost my dropdown menus and then the Google Search bar in the right-hand corner disappeared. Somehow I got it to reappear but it's too small. I followed steps in several different posts and can't get Google Search Bar to widen. 1. I placed the mouse pointer between the search bar and the address bar and nothing happened. 2. The following didn't work for me because I can't find the “Use Small Icons” box: "Click the “View” tab on the program menu and choose “Toolbars.” Select “Customize” from the fly-out menu and a “Customize” toolbar screen loads. Deselect the “Use Small Icons” box and click “Done” to enlarge the icons on the Firefox toolbar." I attached a screenshot of what FF Browser looks like.
