Hi,

Is there a way to disable the little notification that pops up showing what url is being loaded or that pops up when you mouse over a link in the bottom left of the browser?

I'm using an OLED and am trying to disable as many re-current static objects as possible. In my 25 years of web browsing I've never found this to be a useful feature so I'd rather it be disabled.

I can't seem to find any settings pertaining to it and all the info I can find on disabling is quite old and doesn't seem to be accurate anymore.

Any tips would be very appreciated.

Until yesterday everything I customized for Firefox 89 in June of 2021 and FF 91 in August of 2021 was working fine.

Today I updated to Firefox 96.0 and when I open my Firefox returned to that old visual that I hated

tabs with spaces , but that's not the worst. The worst is the newTab visual that came back to the small and ugly bookmarks of the page we usually navigate. That are set on userContent.css I remember.

I checked some vars at about:config and everything is as it was.

So do I need to set true or false any new var there? These .css files are like they was never read. It looks like to me there is a new var, we need to change it.

What did happen?

Firefox did an update today, so I assume this has something to do with it. Every time I do a download (and I do a lot) the drop down list showing the downloads I've done pops out. It didn't do this prior to the update. It used only to appear when I selected it. Now it comes out every blasted time. It's very annoying and distracting. To be clear, I still want to see the download arrow/indicator/whatever so I can see the download is happening, but I don't want to see the list each time. How do I make it STOP? Image attached. Thank you.

I should not have to ask this, but somehow this essential feature has been removed *again*. How in the world do we view the URLs of links in Windows 10 now? The status bar has been totally disappeared, and although there are a number of add-ons, so many of them are about other kinds of status, or only show the URL in limited circumstances, that I'm having trouble figuring out which ones offer the basic view-URL-on-hover. Does anyone have recommendations?

Even better, who can explain why it's a good idea to make it hard for users to see this absolutely vital information? If security is important then it's important to make it easy for users to see where links go before clicking on them. Full stop. And even if the web were somehow magically totally safe, people don't want to waste their time and bandwidth playing guessing games. We want to know what something is before we bother to open it up. Why is that so very hard to understand?????

I have lost all sound comming from firefox after disconnecting an audio output device while it was being used.

To be more precise, the output device is shared between two computer via a hardware usb switch. I was a bit to fast switching from one to the other multiple times and all audio bugged for a few second, everything worked after that except for firefox.

I have no sound comming from firefox even when using an some other output (such as a headset from a jack).

Firefox does appear in the volume mixer but no sound to be seen there either. (see attached image where firefox and spotify both are playing music, but only spotify is working as intended). However firefox does not appear at all in eartrumpet's volume mixer

I have tried : - PC reboots - firefox re-install (un-installed, deleted the %appdata%/firefore, before re-installing) - turning FF hardware acceleration on/off - using a different profile (about:profiles) - disabling all plugins - disabling / enabling every audio output in the device manager

Hello. After reading numerous posts addressing similar issues & having no success, I've decided to post a question of my own. I am running the current version of firefox, 94.0.2. I use the Search Bar religiously for searches to sites like google, wikipedia, youtube, amazon, and ebay. I NEVER use the address bar for searches. I have attempted to disable all functionality associated with searching via the address bar. When I go to the address bar, it is because I have a specifc url I know I want to type with a specific destination in mind. Occasionally, I have a need to just go to the home page of one of my search sites, most often it's amazon.com. Recently (not sure which version of firefox) I've found when I go to the Address Bar & type amazon.com, I cannot just go to amazon.com, instead the address bar turns into a search bar. How do I disable this? Its driving me mad! I swear I've disabled every option I can within about:config related to urlb. Please Help. I don't want to switch to Chrome, but I'm tired of my settings getting messed up every time mozilla pushes a new version.

Recently, I updated Firefox (as it regularly bothers me to do so) and it added an annoying new feature that appears whenever I type anything into the address bar. It used to just provide search suggestions from my list of bookmarks, but now below the list of search options is a separate segment with "This time, search with:" followed by multiple icons--in my case, Google (my default browser), bookmarks, tabs, history, and settings. And you know how when you're sometimes typing something you want to find and the desired result is toward the bottom of the list, so instead of pressing the down arrow key to get to it, you press the up arrow to start from the end…well now, when I try that on the address bar, it cycles through each icon before letting me get to the list's end.

I know it sounds like a petty complaint, but it's annoying and inconvenient to have to do it each and every time since it's habitual to cycle from top to bottom or vice versa on basically every other search bar. I went the route of "Settings > Options > Search > Search Shortcuts" to see if I could get rid of these icons, but just like how it doesn't let you get rid of search engines when you only have one on the list, it doesn't give you an option to remove these superfluous icons.

These Mozilla dumbasses seem to lack foresight and/or consideration with the way they limit user preferences. Can anybody give me any alternative solutions? Please spare me the snide answers like "switch to Chrome" (already considering it). If there's a way to simply circumvent these icons in the address bar rather than getting rid of them entirely, that would be more that enough: I just don't know how to go about it. Anyway, thank you for taking the time to read my submission/rant.

I've been using Elijah Lopez's Matte Black (Red) theme for months. Recently, I think because I added the ClearURLs extension or some other change, certain websites enter some sort of "dark mode" when accessed.

Websites that do this include Twitter, an independent blog, and Youtube.

The website appears normally with the default light theme enabled. In the second photo, the website appears in the "dark mode" with the black Firefox theme enabled.

I have deleted cookies and cache, reinstalled Firefox, and reinstalled Extensions. I think this problem only occurs with dark themes, and nothing else. The moment I change to dark theme, the problem comes back. It is strange because the dark theme was working just fine for months until recently.

How can I keep the dark theme, preferably the same Elijah Lopez's dark theme, while using websites normally and not in this weird "dark theme" style adaptation?

I have read the same named question that has been archived and have not found a solution to my problem there. I'm using Macro Express to define my own keystrokes which works fine outside of FF. One of the keystrokes I have defined is Ctrl-Shift-k. A suggestion was to disable Developer Tools via about:config -> devtools.enable = false, but when I tried to use my definition of Ctrl-Shift-k, instead FF told me "You activated a Developer Tools shortcut. If that was a mistake, you can close this Tab." when in fact I wanted to have it invoke my own definition.

How can I override this (and other) keystrokes when using FF?
