Hi, On Linux systems running Firefox, you're able to switch directly to any open Firefox tab using the key combo Alt+1 for the first open tab, Alt+2 for the second, and so on. On Windows, this shortcut is instead Ctrl+1 and Ctrl+2, respectively. I'd like to use the Alt key instead of Ctrl, and I'm running Windows. Is there a simple extension or setting I can change to do this?

Apologies if there's an obvious solution to this, I couldn't really figure out how to phrase the question, so when I searched for answers, I'd only get things related to Alt+Tab, which is not what I'm looking for.

Thanks a million!

Ok I use firefox as my main browser. I also access many other windows 10 machines remotely with google remote desktop.

It no longer works as soon as I click on the remote computer within google remote desktop my Firefox the tab closes/refreshes and immediately goes to a "new tab" screen in Firefox.

I have tried google chrome with no issue so something very recently has changed I assume with Firefox.

Recent FF, but it was the same on few last versions.

Hello,

When I open a new tab the cursor automatically locates to the address bar at the top of the page rather than the search bar in the middle of the page. I think an update may have caused this but I'm not certain.

Is there a way to make the cursor automatically appear in the search bar rather than the address bar?

Many thanks

My Firefox web browser is configured to request pages in European Portuguese, namely by sending the HTTP Header: Accept-Language: pt,en;q=0.7,en-US;q=0.3

However, whenever accessing Mozilla web sites, the web server always choose to redirect to the page with the content in Brazilian Portuguese as can be confirmed looking also to the response HTTP header: localization: /pt-BR/

There are two errors, first the browser do not allow to add the Accept-Language as pt-PT so the server would make the correct judgement of the localization as a workaround since now W3C decided that pt stands for Portuguese from Portugal and all the other Portuguese speaking countries will have to add the capital letters of the respective country, meaning a Brazilian user should and currently can add the language Brazilian Portuguese as preferred language.

Please kindly correct both the browser and the web site so the pages in European Portuguese can be seen at all.

Only the options for not logged in show up in the dropdown menu after clicking my avatar on the top right. I can't subscribe to any youtube channels. Sometimes the menu on the left looks like if i was logged out. It started doing that maybe 2 days ago. I uninstalled all addons, cleared cookies and cache, reinstalled the browser but it did not work. It works fine in chrome, i just prefer mozilla. (random channel i could recreate it in)

The white text in the black rectangle isn’t showing up as white (or whatever color I change it to) on Firefox despite the inspector window saying it’s computed as white. It should look like the second picture. It shows up correctly in Firefox on my iPad and other browsers on desktop, mobile, tablet. What could be going on?

I tested changing the paragraph text color too and that doesn’t change either.

I’m on macOS Catalina 10.15.6 and my Firefox text color preferences are set to never override webpage colors. My cache is also disabled.

Even though I am signed into YouTube normally, I cannot subscribe to channels. I get "Want to subscribe to this channel? Sign in" and "Your session has expired" every time. Clicking "Sign In" (even though I am already signed in) does not help--the page refreshes and I get the same error.

Additionally, I am missing the entire channel maintenance section when I click on my account (Your Channel, Switch Account, etc. Screenshot attached where you can see it missing), so I can't even sign out and sign back in without clearing site data in Firefox settings.

Refreshing and uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox did not help. This is only happening in Firefox.

Every PC I have has Firefox, but only ones updated to 79 or later list i.ebayimg.com as blocked content, and won't display the eBay thumbnails in my email.

Switching to Standard Protection or turning of Protection OFF for Outlook.com fixes this, but it shouldn't be happening at all.

I use a Firefox account and all of my browsers all have the same basic setup - no exceptions set on any of them, for any site.

Running Ubuntu Linux in version 80.01.

Problem: Since Updating to Firefox 76, a strange problem occurs. All dark colors and context menu backgrounds become transparent. When having a window open behind the Firefox window, it will show through in all areas with dark colors (through images, text, menu's). This problem proves an issue, as I had to change my main desktop background to a solid black one to make Firefox usable, even so, I cannot use the context menus while on a website with a white background.

Solutions I have attempted: Changing browser themes/system themes Reverting all cosmetic changes Disabling all privacy add-ons Reverting all modified settings Even a fresh install using a different (default) profile did not work

What semi-works Booting in safe mode does fix the issue but the fresh install did not.

My question is: Does safe mode do additional modification to the browser other than reverting user modified settings? Basically, does safe mode mimic a fresh installation and if it does do additional changes, is it possible mimic the cosmetic changes that it does for normal browsing?

Hello! I'm trying to figure out how to export the site data of a specific website from my browser so I can import it on another domain or a different browser profile.

I have some quite important data that an application stored locally in my browser, but now the website went down. I want to copy the existing data to my own instance of the application running on another domain so I can continue where I left off.

This seems like it would be a very basic task to be able to backup and migrate your own data like you can with any native application. But as far as I can tell the developer tools offer no such option and all the add-ons that were able to do this stopped working or vanished.

Any help would be appreciated.
