I went into about:config and changed the following values in order to widen the scrollbar:

css. scrollbar-width was true changed to false idget.non-native-theme.scrollbar.size.override was 0 changed to 100 widget.non-native-theme.enabled was true changed to false

Changing these values didn't widen my scrollbar. Without getting into coding, is there another way to make the scrollbar wider? (I changed them all back to the original settings when they didn't work.)

I was trying to solve a hanging issue with firefox and following a 'tip' I changed the name of places.sq.lite to places.sq.lite.old I figured the renamed file would be there to back-up from if something went wrong and although the hanging issue seems to have been fixed I have lost hundreds of links that have taken ages to put together.

Where is sq.lite.old located as it is missing from the original folder? It is not in my recycle bin so renaming it to old hasn't simply deleted it. In another folder there are bookmark backups with dates (JSONLZ4 files) but I have no idea how to get my old links back from them, if indeed that is what they are for.

Please help.

I have recently updated to Firefox 100. I am now getting this message on a page "You are using an outdated browser. Please upgrade your browser." I have confirmed I am up to date.

The "update you browser" has a link to "whatbrowser.org", which I believe is run by that horrid business, Google.

Has anyone struck this problem? Is there a solution?

I have closed Firefox & re-opened, I have rebooted the computer. No change.

Hello,

I am learning to look at websites with help of the development tools and the inspector tab and I am trying to get into how the web works and how the different programming languages interact and so forth. When moving the mouse over parts of the website, the relating code is highlighted in the inspector tab. I am having an issue as follows:

The first image shows a part of the website code. The mouse cursor is on no specific position, I marked its position with a blue arrow.

In the second image the mouse is over the red "free options" button and in the inspector tab a div appears out of nowhere. It does not appear in the code unless the mouse is moved over the button and disappears as soon as the mouse leaves the button. I have never seen that before (maybe because I am a beginner) and have no clue what happens there.

Is that done with javascript? Or with php? Or with css? Or anything else? What happens there and how can the actual code change?

In the inventor tab, does the code have to do with the DOM rather then the sourcecode of the website is that right?

Please give me some light =)

Of course closing tabs doesn;t work with Ctrl+W, but then we need some different shortcut for closing pinned tabs (like for example Ctrl + Shift + W) or just you fixing this bug ;) I attach 2 screenshots that show what happens with Firefox when having too many tabs pinned. I can't navigate through tabs anymore.

Similar to: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1329194 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1298089

In KDE 5.24.4, Linux. I started to have some issues with "Open containing folder" probably because I installed many Gnome apps which may cause bad configurations in my system.

I suspect this cause this issue even though I don't really have gnome file manager:

https://polywogsys.livejournal.com/309405.html "Gnome based file managers, Nemo/Caja/Nautilus provide the entry org.freedesktop.FileManager1. So it doesn't matter what you set as your default application for the filemanager mimetype - as per the freedesktop.org standard, firefox will always select a filemanager based on dbus (if it's there)"

But because the mimetype points to "dolphin", I dont really have other explanation either: $ xdg-mime query default inode/directory org.kde.dolphin.desktop

Why does Firefox now (for the past number of weeks, at least) force me to SAVE every thing I want to read or print? Why cannot I simply read or print something without having to choose a place to save it and name it? I don't always want the file cluttering up my PC once I have read or printed it. Help will be appreciated!

ALSO, probably not related, but maybe? Every time I open Firefox, within a minute, the additional "secure" window to Amazon Smile opens and interrupts what I am doing. Has Amazon taken over the entire world?

Hi,

is there a config option to prevent the showing of user/pw proposals when opening a website for which user account data is saved? When i'm logging into a website with already saved user data, i get account proposals (as ff saves the data "per domain", say if you have 3 accounts to one website, e.g. a test user, an administrator and a cms administrator, they are all presented where needed content may be...) see pict. I would like to opt out this behavior, as i have more than one website with 2 or more accounts.

So, i tried copying the existing profile folder and using that folder for the new profile, but firefox removes the jira search engine and gives me a warning saying that the default search engine was changed to Google (screenshot attached)

Is there a way to get this added via a hack of some kind? I wanted separate profiles so that I keep my project profiles separated - bookmarks, cookies, scripts etc.,

If i want to open files into an application i do not want the files to clutter up my downloads folder.

this used to work perfectly pre-v91.

i understand that some users were confused where their files went when they opened them incorrectly within firefox.

currently i'm using a python script to clear my downloads folder from the useless files, but i'd rather just not have to bother with it.

is there a way to get the old behavior back? im comfortable going into about:config and/or using a plugin if i have to.

The Firefox desktop browser default font is replacing all fonts on some websites, only title fonts on some others, and then leaving others unchanged. It seems random, and I can't stop the default font from taking over randomly on most websites no matter what I do. This was not happening until today, and no browsers or general MacBook Air preferences were changed between today and yesterday when I last used the browser on desktop.

Under Firefox Preferences » Fonts » Advanced, I've made sure to check the box to "Allow pages to choose their own fonts instead of your selections above", and I've unchecked it, and I've re-checked it, and the default is still overriding fonts on most websites.

I've quit and restarted Firefox 3 times.

Hello,

I have been unable to watch Netflix or any "other" video content using the Firefox browser for the past few weeks. I've been pulling my hair out while working through the help articles, alongside bouts of furious googling - all to no avail.

On Netflix I am getting error code F7701- 1003. Netflix is telling me to use the latest version of Firefox, but I have been checking for new updates almost every day since I noticed this issue. My current version is 100.0 (64-bit) On other website I'm getting the error message "No compatible source was found for this media."

I have followed all of the fixes listed on the following articles, but so far have not been able to fix my problem: Fix common audio and video issues Fix video and audio problems on Firefox for Windows N editions
