Recently the majority of content types have disappeared from the Applications section in the Settings. (See the attached screenshot) Even Word and other MS Office files are not on the list any more. Consequently, when I open a Word file, Firefox asks me where to save it and does not offer to either save it or open it.

I tried editing handlers.json file and added an entry for PDF files. Now upon clicking on a link that leads to a PDF file, Firefox prompts me to open it or save it. However, if I choose to open it, the file gets saved in the Downloads folder, rather than Temp folder like previously. The result is that the Downloads folder gets filled with files that I have opened but did not want to save and keep.

I created a new Firefox profile to see whether the previous list of content types would return. This did not work, and the new profile, too, shows only a few content types.

What could be the problem? Thanks.

Hi there, I am coming back to Firefox after about 10 years. I would really like to customise how TABS work because I find the default behaviour disorientating.

Can you help me with the following? 1) I would like the tab bar to ALWAYS be shown, even if there is only one tab. 2) I would like the (x) to close tabs to always be shown, not just when you hover over them with the mouse. I find this confusing because I don't know where the close button is until i mouse over the tab; since the size of the tabs is always different & the border between tabs is hard to see. or if there was some way to keep tabs to a standard width that would be welcome too.

Are these things possible?

I been reading various guide about how to use CSS to override the hyperlink color. But it is not working, Firefox are not grabbing the userChrome.css from the folder. I am not sure if there is other step that I have to do since I did everything to enable it through multiple guides.


  • toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets is enabled
  • chrome folder is created and located in my profile root folder
  • userChrome.css and userContent.css is in chrome folder
  • restarted Firefox multiple times even checking the task manager to ensure that Firefox is absolutely shut down.

Based on those above, it should be working. I thought it was the CSS code, however Stylus have no issue with the code. Yes, there are two empty rules in there because I got the impression that CSS strongly relies on inheritance. So I set this way to ensure that that nothing will be overridden by the website CSS. I created a clean fresh profile and set the same thing above and restarted Firefox. Unfortunately, it didn't work. So the addons are ruled out. my default profile is ruled out since the clean fresh profile having the same issue.

I don't know what is the possible issue of this? I don't know if my CSS is defined correctly since Stylus does not have a issue with it and applying CSS on all websites. Anyone have a clue?

My CSS content:

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");

a: link {} a: visited {

   color: #ffa500 !important;

} a: hover {} a: active {

   color: #ffa500 !important;

}

I have bookmarks in my bookmarks menu list that the bookmarks manger doesn't show. How do I rectify this so that I can manage all my bookmarks? I've read all the "Get Help" sources I can find, but none seem to apply to my problem. Why can't firefox just make all the bookmarks drag and drop, without having to go into the manager, it would be a game changer?

Is there a way I can remove all Firefox information?

I uninstalled Firefox. I deleted the file folder in C:\. I emptied the trash. I restarted my computer. I downloaded a new copy. But it keeps installing with the old profile info, even if its not signed in.

I can't see why I can't remove everything and have a fresh install. This should be built into the browser. Delete all profile info, bookmarks, etc. And then it should be gone.

Also, it seems like Firefox is automatically importing the bookmarks from my Old Chrome profile. That was the 1st google Account I had, and the original one I signed into after installing Chrome, which I no longer use. Now it seems like its automatically choosing that profile.

In the install package, there should be a clean install option with no import of bookmarks. A simple checkbox would suffice.

Does anyone know if there is a simple way to have a fresh install?

Thanks

Hi there! Since FF 91 all menu items have an incredible vertical spacing, the menu item is twice as high as before. This is a nuisance especially in the bookmark menus. I would like to have the narrow menu item spacing back, without being urged to install an AddOn or to learn CSS programming or to file a bug in this peculiar BugZilla system. Think of our family of USERS, not developers.

Yes, I understand the circumstances of free software. Yes, I see it is necessary to keep up with modern UI design and the so-called technical progress. The FF 91 UI changes slightly towards what we expect to get in Windows 11. Fine! Also, it is absolutely clear that the new menu line spacing adds more comfort to the FF usability ... on tablet PCs and smart phones. But NOT for desktop users.

As far as I know, Microsofts plans for Windows 11 still include a setting to keep the old narrow menu item height. Mozilla should do so, too. I hope the developers will take care to not lose contact to their users.

Systems: MacMini (2018) running Mojave 10.14.6 Windows 10 Pro v20H2, build 19042.1165, experience pack 120.2212.3530.0

Ever since FF v89 when I go into FF Settings in either system none of the options I have selected display an 'X' in that option's checkbox. In previous versions when I clicked in an option's checkbox an 'X' would appear and disappear when clicked again.

No more.

I've tried changing the theme to Dark, Light, System . . . no change to this issue in either my Mac or pc: I cannot see an 'X' in any option's checkbox in FF Settings.

Please see attached screenshots. They are with "Dark" theme, but its the same no matter what theme I choose.

How to get my Settings choices to show that I have checked off this or that option?

Solution??

Thanks!
