The latest update added persistent "More Tools" and "Extensions" icons on the top right of Firefox. Usually, by clicking "Customize Toolbar" I could remove any annoying icon that I don't want to persistently see, but it would seem that Firefox DISABLED the ability to remove these annoying icons. Please let us continue to customize our own toolbars and allow us to remove unwanted icons.

Hello!

I'm using Firefox MSIX on a laptop with an OLED screen. To avoid burn-in, static elements on the screen are discouraged.

Unfortunately, when the Reader View is enabled on Firefox, a vertical toolbar appears and is constantly on the same spot on the screen.

I would like to have this toolbar disabled or have it to hide/show depending on mouse prompt. Is there a built-in setting I could change to make this happen?

Would this solution here be my only option and would it work on Firefox MSIX? Finding the firefox profile on the Microsoft Store app is tricky.

Thank you.

Prior to Firefox 116, I could have the normal scrollbar up and down buttons showing by making:

widget.non-native-theme.gtk.scrollbar.allow-buttons True

But now it seems to have no effect. This is under Linux/Mint/Cinnamon. Also, now long-pressing is doing smooth scrolling (I never want smooth scrolling anywhere) and can't find a way to stop that.

I have these set from before:

widget.gtk.overlay-scrollbars.enabled false widget.non-native-theme.gtk.scrollbar.round-thumb false widget.non-native-theme.gtk.scrollbar.thumb-size .85 widget.non-native-theme.scrollbar.size 14 widget.non-native-theme.scrollbar.size.override 14 general.smoothScroll false general.smoothScroll.other false general.smoothScroll.lines false general.smoothScroll.pages false general.smoothScroll.pixels false general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel false mousewheel.system_scroll_override.enabled false toolkit.scrollbox.smoothScroll false ui.scrollToClick 0

Any suggestions appreciated.

Seems like it is always a fight retaining usable scrollbars in Firefox that do not hide, do not change size on mouse-over, do not "warp" on left click, do warp on center click, have a thumb that shows page size, have a background that is not white, and are not microscopic in size! Just call me "traditional"  :)

Thanks

Hello, The controls in Settings to choose how Firefox updates have disappeared from Settings / General? The "Firefox Updates" section is supposed to appear there, based on:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/enable-background-updates-firefox-windows https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-options-preferences-and-settings?as=u&utm_source=inproduct#search

This is on V109. I really need to be able to choose when an update goes in, Python / Jupyter applications I have running on Firefox can cost me hours of time to re-run if Firefox goes in and restarts itself when it wants to. I used to be able to control this. Has it really been removed, or is somewhere else and the docs not updated yet? Thanks Neil

I am using Firefox 123.0.0 (rel. 20-Feb-2023) on a Win 10 Pro v22H2 computer.

I understand that FF123.0.0 is supposed to include a new option to "Report Broken Site" on the menu (hamburger icon) that is described in the support article How do I report a broken site in Firefox desktop? but I can't see this new option. I also checked the menu options under More Tools and Help but can't find it.

Exiting and re-opening Firefox didn't solve the problem.

I have run Firefox for years on up to 4 PCs at once, everything has always synced and screens all look the same. Recently one laptop lost the addon extension icons in the Firefox toolbar. They remain on all other installations. I have tried uninstalling Firefox and installing an earlier build, and also the latest Beta build with no luck. All extensions show as installed and activated. I have copied the Profile from another laptop. I have of course done a reset. Any other suggestions?

This issue needs to be corrected as it is causing problems.

As you will see from the attached acreenshots, when a file wants to be downloaded, I get the expected Ask options and even though I selected Open with Adobe it still downloads the file.

Picture 1 shows the options, picture 2 shows the file open in Adobe, picture 3 shows it downloaded to my PC and picture 4 shows that I selected Always ask you where to save files so why is the file still downloading.

It creates a nuisance as I only want to open most files and if I decide to save them, I can do that so why is Firefox still saving files whether I want to or not !?!

Now I have to go to the file, delete it and empty the recycle bin for security reasons so this issue needs to be resolved as it used to work fine in previous version of Firefox.

Maybe there is a setting that I need to change so any suggestions on how to fix this would be appreciated.

I am currently running Firefox 109.0 (64-bit) on Windows 10, Version 22H2 (OS Build 19045.2486).


Thanks.

All of my extensions just got moved into a single new extension button. I understand this feature was just added to 109 but is quite terrible.

I can no longer see my extensions on the toolbar. I now have to do even more clicks to access certain options or settings. Which is dumb as it now takes longer to get where you need to go.

This is a terribly added feature. Not sure how this passed. The quality of life is not improved in any shape or form with this. Only makes things worse.

For example. I have norton safe web and search. I now have to click on the extension button to see if a page is safe or now have to do multiple clicks to access that extension.

This new feature is terrible and I really hope it is reverted.

Hi, When you click "settings" in notifications, in the privacy and security settings, a new window opens instead of a tab, so this setting has no URL of its own. In Chromium-based browsers they have the URL "*browser name*://settings/content/notifications", so I could add this URL to bookmarks and access it quickly. Is there any way to do something similar in Firefox? Thanks

When I download an image in Firefox and open it from the downloads folder it will always open in Pixelmator not Pixelmator Pro.

If I double click on an image file elsewhere they correctly open in Pro, but in Finder, the icons are for Pixelmator not Pixelmator Pro. This can be hidden if I turn on finder icon previews, but selecting Get Info always has the Pixelmator icon not the Pixelmator Pro one.

Im not sure if this is a macOS problem, a firefox issue or a Pixelmator bug but it seems to be related to the way the files are registered.

Things I have tried:

Changing file associations in firefox. Rebooting Changing the open-with properties in finder: Open all with Pixelmator Pro Reset the Local & User domains with lsregister lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain user -domain system -v
