I'm trying to create a DOS batch file to clear the current profile's cache (web site data only, not cookies). I have it working fine using a hard-coded path of the existing profile (I only have one profile), but I'd like it to remain viable in case a newer profile is created for whatever reason. Is there a way to retrieve the path into a variable?

Thank you!

I recently switched to a UK keyboard layout (Logitech MX keys with UK layout), from a US international layout. I changed the system settings to use the proper input and it works like a charm on every program I have, except the browser. Even if I have changed Firefox's main language as "English (UK)" and restarted it, it doesn't recognize sequences such as "CTRL + `" follwed by a vocal. Is there any known solution to this issue?

In other 'apps' on windows 10 the tooltip is above the pointer or below it. In Firefox it is directly under the mouse. So usually any tooltip popup in firefox is unreadable, mostly. One can infer the content sometimes.

How do i change that? Or what is the problem?

I'll try and include a screenshot. Hmm, the screenshot didn't include the mouse. I think i can do a video with OBS and then a screenshot of that.

Interesting, somehow in the screenshot from the obs video it shows 2 mouse pointers. One is very small and the tooltip is just below that, but the other is larger (the one I see) and it covers the tooltip. I'm using the standard windows mouse settings for larger mouse pointers. I just tried using the 'old' mouse settings to select a larger mouse and it behaves the same way. If I select size: 1 in the new size settings, and the old settings i have 'windows system' mouse, then the tooltip is under the pointer but the size is too small for the pointer. I then changed to another mouse setting in the old selector "inverted extra large" and you can see the tooltip because of the 'inverted' nature of the pointer, but the tooltip is still partially covered by the pointer.

Ideally the choice would be to put the tooltip above the mouse pointer rather than below. When you increase the size of the mouse pointer it only increases down, not up. The point of the pointer is always at the top.

I'm going to try one more thing, increasing the size in the new settings after having selected "inverted", but i recall that it changes to the new pointer style. Ah, there is an inverted setting in the new options as well, and if i select that instead of the gray color i was using then one can read the tooltip through the mouse.

So, then my question becomes "can I put the tooltip above the mouse pointer?" Because it is still covered by the mouse pointer as is. I don't see anything in 'about:config', so far.

Thank you.

I have two computers (say A and B). I want to move the entire Bookmark toolbar from A to a folder in the Bookmark toolbar on B. This would allow me to selectively move folders and bookmarks from the A Bookmark toolbar upload to the toolbar on B. So far I cannot get the Import or Restore to upload to a single empty folder on the B bookmark toolbar.

I have tried to upload previously exported Html and Json files from A to a specific empty folder on B's bookmark tool bar but either the file overwrites the entire toolbar on B or nothing appears to happen.

I thought that by selecting a folder in the "Manage Bookmark" dialog box that the subsequent upload of either the Html or Json files would all go there but it does not appear to work.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi, I have an issue with making the separators in the bookmark toolbar drop-downs visible. I am running Firefox 95 with the Quantum - dark Blue theme installed. I am running Linix Mint Uma.

The dropdown have separator - space - but no line showing that there is a separator. I have tried many ways to make the separators visible and with light-grey colouring in the userChrome.css file but nothing changes.

Anybody have any idea what can be done or where I might change the Quantum-DarkBlue coding to incorporate the visible separators?

When I looked into why it was taking so long to backup my FF profile, I realized it was because their are over 21k files my backup software has to compare.

The majority of these are in the "Storage" folder -- apparently local/offline storage for various sites.

I've already moved the cache to a non-synced location using browser.cache.disk.parent_directory and would like to do the same with "Storage".

But I can't seem to find any info on what pref would allow me to do that. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi Firefox,

A site I visited recently moved to another URL. Is there a way to edit my browser history so I can still be able to keep track of which pages I have visited?

For example:

if I have visited

https://site-old.com/topic1/page1.html https://site-old.com/topic1/page2.html

I want my browser history to also contain

https://site-new.com/topic1/page1.html https://site-new.com/topic1/page2.html

So I can see that I have already visited the page1 and page2 on topic1 as the link color would be purple

Would I be able to script something in a developer console and achieve that? Or would I need to program a plugin?

thanks!

Firefox updated to 89.0 today, and my newtabpage looks odd. The shortcuts now have really small previews, as shown in the attached image. How do I get them to be full size again (i.e. fill the box)? It was easier to tell them apart at a glance before the update, post update there's too much empty space. Is there something in about:config that controls this?
