Have the settings listed here been discontinued?

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Browser.urlbar.restrict.tag

I still have those entries in my prefs.js to specify my preferred keys. This used to work back in the day, but now my chosen keys are ignored, and only the built-in defaults seem to apply.

Have these settings been moved to different keys, or is it no longer possible to over-ride the defaults at all?

I have seen similar requests but they all seem to go down some dirt road and leave the topic.

First the issue I am having is with Firefox v72 on the Windows 10 computer provided by work. This company has thousands of employees and the IT department is not responsive.

My issue: Every time I launch Firefox a pop-up window appears telling me that Firefox can't update to the latest version. This message reappears periodically throughout the day. I would like to prevent this or at least have it occur 1 time a week or month. I have tried adjusting the advanced settings but nothing seems to fix this issue and frankly I do not even see a change in the duration of the message.

Now before the folks concerned about security "recommend" that I should update to the latest version because it is the safest and best version, please understand that I do know. A large office with many users, OSes, computers, apps in use apparently does not have the flexibility needed to keep the Firefox browser happy. I certainly can't force the IT department to update Firefox (I have asked).

I'd love for Mozilla to give us control of this feature again, but I am not counting on it. So I am hoping that someone reading this has found a solution that will work for V72 of Firefox.

Each browser has issues, this one is minor, an annoyance for me. My continuing to use this browser depends on more than this issue. When I consider Pros and Cons of this browser this goes in the Cons column.

I'm a paid subscriber of ActiveInbox and had been using the Firefox plugin. Unfortunately it has been out of commission for over a year. On their support forums they've commented that after a substantial rewrite of the plugin, things got bogged down within Mozilla's review process. It has been stalled ever since. I just asked for a status update on that thread and was told "there is no change in the way Firefox process updates" and nothing is happening right now. As a paid subscriber, I'm just trying to get something more definitive as to the status of their plugin as I need to decide whether or not to continue to pay for the service. I greatly appreciate any information.

I've been editing userContent.css and userChrome.css for the last couple days and I've got a lot of stuff working. I can't however figure out how to change the logo on about:privatebrowsing to be a custom image. Here is my current code:

/*** PRIVATE BROWSING ***/

@-moz-document url(about:privatebrowsing) {

/* Changes the logo on the home screen*/
.logo {
  background: url("Firefox Halo with Paw.png") no-repeat center center !important;
}

.logo-and-wordmark {
  align-items: center !important;
  display: flex !important;
  justify-content: center !important;
  margin-bottom: 49px !important;
}

/* Changes the home screen color */
html.private {
    --in-content-page-background: #261010 !important;}
}

I've tried using a relative path to the image for the non-private browsing section, but since private browsing is a protected area, I can't load in the image from a link.

I happen to be one who simply does not wish to have any program remember or store passwords of any kind, thank you. An irritating problem I have with Firefox Password Manager is that whenever I log on to any site and the Password Manage box pops up and offers to save my password...once I select "Never Save" I expect that choice to be honored and would appreciate it if it were. But it simply isn't. I must continue to select "Never Save" each and every time I log onto any and all websites. What does "Never" mean in this context if the Password Manager continues to circulate the same query every single time? Is there any way I can simply disable Password Manager and thus avoid this irritation...which is getting very tedious and old. Please?

I can't seem to figure out how to have the desktop shortcut for Firefox open a new window even when I have a window already open. As it is, when I click on the shortcut when I have a Firefox window already open, it simply opens a new tab. I do want to keep links opening in new tabs, I just want to be able to open a new window with the shortcut. Is there a way of doing this?

I'm working with Windows 10 Home on a Lenovo laptop.

Hello, I'm having a problem with the address bar that is driving me insane and I hope someone here can help me...

I am used to visiting facebook by typing in "fb" in the address bar and then clicking on the first link in google. I know, not the fastest way to reach facebook, but I just got used to it too much...

However, few days ago, firefox started asking me (in a ribbon popup under the toolbar) something along the lines of "Do you want to go to fb instead?" (not 100% sure if this was the exact question) and sometime later I stupidly clicked "Yes". Now whenever I type in address bar "fb" and hit enter, it automatically goes to http://fb/, which of course is a bad link and I only get to a page of my ISP??.

What is going on? how do I delete this visit link? I spent whole day searching on google and trying various accepted answers that suggest editing userChrome.css or toggling some settings in about:settings. None of these solutions work for me. Farthest I got was with editing the .css so that the visit link is hidden, but in reality the link is still there and when I hit enter it still takes me to the http://fb/ site.

Thank you and cheers!

Last week I had a problem with a Windows update and had to initiate a System Restore in order to get Windows back up and running. Everything seems fine now except for the fact that videos will no longer play. I have looked online and found various suggestions, none of which work. The videos work with Google Chrome, so the problem seems to be localised to Firefox. I am using Windows 10, and when I checked it said that I am using the latest version of Firefox.

Currently when I click inside the Location Bar the entire string is selected/highlighted.

I don't want that, I want the old behavior where the first click positions the pointer at the place inside the string text where I clicked.

I have added these options (found in another Q):

browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll false browser.urlbar.doubleClickSelectsAll true

But they don't seem to work.

I'm using Firefox 76.0.1 on Linux, and the option to combine Search and Location bar.

In my Windows 10 Version of Firefox, when ever I set my HISTORY to 'Never Remember', the option to 'Ask to save logins and passwords for websites' is greyed out.

I do not think this combination is correct, as I want set my Firefox to 'Never' remember History but at the same I do want the option that If I do setup my user-id & Password on a new website, I want Firefox to prompt me to Save or Remember Password.

On the same token, If a password is changed Firefox must prompt that password is updated in Firefox. This will not be prompted if I set my HISTORY to 'Never Remember'.

The Image I am sharing is my current settings, I did not want reset it, as I then have to reload Firefox, re-do a lot of thinks, like Booksmarks etc.

My installed Firefox version is 76.0.1 (64-bit).

If there is work around let me know the solution. Hope to hear soon.
