Firefox clear history can remove download info. But right-click on icon shows win10 keeps a list; items there can only be deleted one-by-one.

Maybe this is more a win10 issue. How can it be stopped from remembering all downloads, or how can that list be cleared all at once? Thank you.

Hi there,

I'm trying to see if there is a way to modify how the Firefox "Location" prompts ("Do you want to give this site access to your location? Allow/Block") are displayed on the screen. Although, microphone and camera access prompts are also relevant to me.

My use case is mobile Linux and similar to some of the problems solved by https://gitlab.com/postmarketOS/mobile-config-firefox

If anybody is knowledgeable on the subject and could point me to relevant source or terminology used by Firefox to help narrow my search, I'd appreciate it. Is it possible to modify these prompts with any of the built-in CSS modifiers like userChrome.css or anything else?

Thanks!

Hello everyone,

I need to recover a web page that I visited several times last fall using Firefox on Mac OS. I have regular backups which should include the Firefox cache files, but after looking through several threads online it is not clear exactly which file I would look for in my backups, and how I could go about actually looking at the cached version of that page. I have seen some tools for viewing old cache files, but the only one that seemed reasonably easy to use is only for Windows.

I would be grateful for any step-by-step instructions on how I can see an old page (or at least any parts of it that were cached) that no longer exists.

Also: I tried the various internet archives such as way back machine and google cache but no such luck. This was an ad on a real estate website in Italy.

Thank you in advance.

How to make FF refresh proxy settings from command line/script?

I configured my Windows 10 Firefox proxy to use system proxy settings, and I have a script can based on different network environment modify the system proxy autoconfiguration script address (HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\AutoConfigURL) in registry to update the proxy settings. Internet Explorer works well - new proxy configuration usually become effective in 1 or 2 minutes after the change. However, each time after my script changes the registry proxy address (without FF restart), I have to go to Firefox Tools->Settings->Proxy to manually change it to another value (in my case it's from "Use system proxy settings" to any other value), confirm it, and then change it back. Then FF is able to reload the autoconfiguration script to make it work. This is really a headache.

I just wonder is there a way to notify FF to reload the proxy autoconfiguration script address from registry from command line so that my script can trigger it automatically after the registry is modified?

Thanks.

Firefox 104.0 64-bit

I hid a photo on a webpage to see if its space would collapse and bring the text closer toger so I could make a screeenshot. I right-clicked on the photo and selected "Block Element". The photo disappeared, but the space it had occupied remained (outline of photo, filled with background color). I right clicked in the space, but there was no "Unblock Element" to select.

I looked online for an answer to this question, which seems not to have been addressed specifically. One of the results suggested using an add-on called Firebug; another suggested uBlock. I guess another question I might ask would be, why would it require an add-on to unblock an element that was blocked using Firefox?

It is not vital that I get the photo back, as I can contrive to never visit that particular webpage again, but my inquiring mind wants to know how to unblock an element I have blocked—particularly since it was so easy to block it in the first place.

Thank you.

Greetings all I am a long time Chrome user trying to make the switch to Firefox. Mostly I love it, but one of my biggest roadblocks is Google Drive and Google Docs.

I'm very much a don't-take-your-hands-off-the-keyboard kind of guy and so I am heavily invested in the Google Docs menus and I have all the common menu commands memorized. (e.g., Alt-F, R to rename the current Google Doc.)

The problem on Firefox is that when I press Alt-F, I get the Firefox menu, not the Google Docs menu. So I have to resort to clicking the menu with the mouse instead of using the keyboard shortcut. Not the end of the world, but annoying.

Is there anyway to configure Firefox or Google Docs so I can use the Google Docs menus? Is there any sort of Add-on that would help with this?

Thanks Calvin Powers

Since updating, "Exit Full Screen" now causes viewed page to become a narrow sliver at the top of the screen, and the page unusable. I typically drag pictures from my desktop to Facebook, etc., but can no longer do that. (I know there is another way to access pictures from the desktop, but it is currently unreliable on my machine, which is very slow and wonky right now.) Can I revert to the former function where "Exit Full Screen" just makes the page smaller but still usable?
