Hello. I've been struggling to figure out how to get the address bar and tabs to hide when in fullscreen mode on my Mac. At first, I thought this was just the default setting, but after browsing other Community posts and discussions on Reddit and such, I began to suspect those are supposed to hide by default, but are not in my case.

Please see the photo attached for what I mean—the tabs and address bar never go away, if they are supposed to, regardless of whether I have a new tab or a webpage open.

I tried Firefox with all my add-ons turned off, because some posts suggested they can prevent auto-hiding. I have looked for CSS solutions and extensions which could help, but I am utterly frustrated. Please help!

Thanks in advance.

Need help on reducing bookmarks line spacing

Hi,

First of all, I would like to say that I am a Firefox user since 2007 (since we are in 2019, that's 12 years). I like it and I thank all the Firefox people that worked on it.

However, about two weeks ago I have updated my system from Debian 8 to Debian 10; and with it came a new version of Firefox.

And I don't like the way this new Firefox version looks: - it's ugly - it has out of proportion line spacing in the bookmarks - it has out of proportion line spacing in the Preferences menus - it is much less visual appealing than previous versions

Nevertheless, under the hood, I don't doubt that it is more advanced and better.

I just think it's a wrong move from the people leading Firefox at the moment. Maybe they believe they have to follow the (stupid) trend that many other software houses are following: - non intuitive icons - poor use of colors - exagerated simplifying in icons design - minimalistic screen organization - menus with less options, forcing the users to edit configuration files

All this leads to the user having to "try and guess", trying to discover how things work. 20 or 10 years ago, the softwares weren't so advanced, but they were more organized and with better menus. Today, if seems the need is to build something beautiful. But that beauty soon loses it charm after 5 minutes of interaction.

This is the sensation I get from interacting with Firefox nowadays. And it extends to the support forum, with lack of tast in the design, colors, etc. Too many steps back, in my opinion.

Using Firefox now is not as good an experience like it was some years ago. We need something that works, that has good menus, that we like to see. And not being forced to like something that others think it's the present trend. Firefox is used for the internet, so it needs to be a very good tool. Stop fooling around with it, please.

Also, when I try to solve this problem using themes, I'm stumped because I find some many themes. But the problem is that they are poor quality themes. Much quantity, but poor quality. And the search function, is horrible to say the least.

Besides, I don't understand that Firefox now calls themes to simply adding an image to the menu bar. Is that really a theme? Is this really a good service? I don't think so. I think this is dumb. And steers users away.

I don't care for flowers or manga characters in my menu bar. I just want well designed folder icons and line spacing that makes sense.

Why doesn't Firefox gives the user the choice of using the previous themes? Aren't we in 2019? Something like: Menu - Tools - Themes: - Firefox 55 theme - Firefox 56 theme - Firefox 57 theme [..] - Firefox xx theme

Can you imagine how many hours are you wasting from your millions of users that use Firefox to work and would benefit of something like this?

================================================

Having said this, now I present my goal with this post: I would like to know: - how can I reduce bookmarks line spacing?

I use Firefox to work everyday. I need it to be functional. I have thousands of bookmarks and I have organized them so they fit my screen.

Right now, I am losing much time scrolling up and down within my bookmark folders, because this new version of Firefox has a bigger line spacing than the version I used before.

Please see the attached picture.

Thank you.

I recently reset Firefox. Before whenever I downloaded a file, it automatically prompted me if I wanted to open the file or save it to my computer, with saving it to my computer preselected. This was fine because I almost never want to open these downloads automatically, and I like all my downloads to go into my downloads folder on a separate drive with much more space (not the temp folder on C:\). The option "do this automatically for files like this from now on" was useful for the rare file type that I would want to open automatically (usually because it's a very small music file or something).

Now every time I download virtually any file type, the prompt comes up with 'open the file' preselected, and "do this automatically for files like this from now on" greyed out. As a result, on more than one occasion, I have mistakenly clicked ok and opened huge files automatically after downloading (which has resulted in them popping open even hours later and playing automatically once the download finished). I'd like to be able to select "save it to my computer" and have it do this automatically, but that option is greyed out.

The help available seems to suggest going into options>Applications and changing the action for the appropriate content type, but: (a) not all the content types I download are listed, i.e. .mov, .mpeg, .rar, etc. (b) changing the action for the content types I do have (.wmv and compressed/zipped folder only) has done absolutely nothing.

I'm still prompted for each and every file I download, still preselected to open the file, with the "do this automatically for files like this from now on" still greyed out.

I'd like to change it to the way I had before, or at the very least automatically set all downloads to save into my downloads folder.

I am running FF 77.0.1. This has been an issue for awhile however. In Options, under Applications/PDF, there is no Preview in Firefox option. I've tried quitting FF, renaming/moving handlers.json; but on re-opening the relevant section remains the same(action=0). I discovered about:config pdfjs.disable=false, previously it was set to true. Then in Options/Applications/PDF, "Firefox" is an option to open, and the action=3 in handlers.json, however the behavior of downloaded pdfs is the same (downloaded). (This is trying example pdfs from different sites). I've tried changing about:config security.cps.enable=false, no change. I've also seen a plugin to "fix content types" that shows up on this site, but it didn't change anything. From what I gather, action=3 should be Preview in Firefox, not Firefox, and all pdfs are being downloaded. Is there a way to fix this? Not seeing pdfs in browser is significantly annoying.

Hello, I am trying to return to using Firefox after many years away. I need to disable the shortcut keys but cannot find where or how to turn them off. This seems very odd as I am sure its a popular need, at least for certain keys let alone the complete set. As a disabled user I use a program called Phrase Express to fill in all sorts of things for me including online forms. However, firefox's shortcut keys are interferring with those of the much more useful Phrase Express. I am astonished that a simple answer was not easily available whilst searching other questions etc. However, many similar questions were many years out of date and lead me to various addons which were no longer active. This cannot be a difficult thing to do, after all many people (will never even use them and even programs developed my single progammers usually have a simple series of options available in settings to turn them on or off or indeed customise them.

So, can someone please help, the need to use phrase express is essential to cope with my neck and arm problems but I wish to leave Chrome and more importantly Google behind me.

Thank you in advance for your guidance and assistance.

Using Facebook video/voice call: Browser asks me for permission to use video and mic AND gives me dropdowns to configure devices for each. Figuring I probably won't need to configure these settings again, I checked "remember these settings" and hit OK. Started the call - video worked, but microphone did not, even though the device was tested and worked. Now I wanted to go back and look at the settings for which devices to use for video and microphone. My BIG mistake: telling Firefox to remember settings. Oh no!

At this point, I figured the internet would have the answer. I can't find anybody who has mentioned this issue. The question: where do I go to change the video device or microphone device for Firefox AFTER I hit "remember" the first time? Or is hitting "remember" the kiss of death for being able to change these settings in the future? I searched Firefox settings: apparently the only settings relevant to mic/webcam are to allow or disallow those devices. Not what I want. An additional question: does Firefox just go directly to the default devices specified by Windows? Regardless of what I told it the first time? That might explain it. If this is the case, it's a major design flaw that it even asked me which devices to use the first time.

My question is similar to "Java Plug-in for JRE7u21?" but all the suggestions there that worked are for Windows, and I'm on a Mac, and I don't want to hijack that thread. For the record, that thread is /questions/958847. aw

I have Mac OS X 10.8.5 Mountain Lion, Firefox 24.0, which says it's up to date, and Java 7 update 45, also up to date. I only want answers for Mac OS X, not Windows, not Linux.

The online Java test works OK in Safari but not in Firefox. Firefox thinks Java is not installed. There's no "Java Applet Plug-in" in the plug-ins list.

Since Safari is OK, I assume there's a bug in Firefox. Can we narrow it down by identifying which combinations of versions (of Mac OS X, Firefox and Java) have the Java plug-in and which don't?
