I'm attempting to set the new tab page using the autoconfig.cfg and autoconfig.js files. I have the following (Ubuntu 20.0.4):

/usr/lib/firefox/autoconfig.cfg ``` // set new tab page var {classes:Cc,interfaces:Ci,utils:Cu} = Components; aboutNewTabService = Cc["@mozilla.org/browser/aboutnewtab-service;1"].getService(Ci.nsIAboutNewTabService); aboutNewTabService.newTabURL = "file:///home/Desktop/index.html"; ```

/usr/lib/firefox/defaults/pref/autoconfig.js ``` pref("general.config.filename", "autoconfig.cfg"); pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); pref("general.config.sandbox_enabled", false); ```

When I restart firefox, a dialogue pops up saying 'Failed to read the configuration file. Please contact your system administrator.' The new tab is unchanged. Am I doing something wrong? I've seen [thread] and believe I've followed everything that was said.

I use multiple Firefox profiles for specific purposes and want to lock certain preferences for the profiles.

I'm aware of the "mozilla.cfg" (in the installation directory, kb.mozillazine.org/Locking_preferences), but that applies to all profiles.

Is there a way to lock preferences per Firefox profile?

For forever, I've used one or another .jpg as my home screen image. I've never paid attention to it, but with FF80 the image I've used for the past several years now just sits in the upper left hand corner of my home page. Is there a way to get it to stretch to fit [as it used to , I guess, since the image is the same size it has always been but now doesn't fill the screen]

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

weil mein Englisch so schlecht ist schreibe ich zweisprachig. Because of my bad english I write in German also.

Ich habe eine kleine Anwendung in Javascript geschrieben und mit dem Befehl window.print() öffne ich das Standardmenü zum Drucken. Wenn mein Anwender nun auf ‚drucken‘ klickt möchte ich das mit einem Zähler mitbekommen. Geht das ? Wenn ja wie ? Kann mir jemand helfen ? Gerne würde ich mich in einem Cafe`dazu mit Dir treffen.

I have written a small app in javascript running inside the browser and with the command window.print() the standard menu will be opened. If my user clicked on this button I want to count this. Is this possible ? If yes how ? Can somebody help me ? I would be happy to meet you in a cafe`or so.

Kind regards / mfg Roland

I've had Firefox Facebook Container and Multiple Containers for quite some time. I've also had two Gmail accounts for quite some time. I've always been able to open both accounts, and until recently, been able to successfully open them in separate containers. Something the last week or so has broken however and the two accounts refuse to be opened in two containers. I NEED to keep my work email/browsing/YouTube separate from my home email/browsing/YouTube. The first one opens fine in it's container. The second one, when starting Firefox, USED to ask me every time if I wanted to open it in it's container (annoying, but tolerable), but it worked. NOW when I try to open two email accounts in separate containers, it just refuses to do it. It opens without them in the container - the first one places into it's container, but the second one refuses to open in its own container. I open a new tab in the desired container (the other one to the one that initially opens successfully), it loads to Google with the RIGHT Google account in the right container, but when I hit email from Google, it totally swaps, opening a new window of the WRONG container and loads the WRONG account EVERY TIME. I can certainly change email accounts at that point, but it's then in the WRONG container, so that I have them both open in the same container. If I try to transfer it to the correct container, it just doesn't do it - it opens a new page in the same INCORRECT container.

This is now broken for me! And it happened just the last week. Is it possible that this can be fixed again? This is basic reason for using containers! If you can't keep stuff separated, like separate Google accounts to keep work and home browsing histories separate, then what the heck is the point of these containers anyway?? I may as well not have them.

Hello,

There are many videos online now, some in news articles. I do not want to watch the video, so I scroll past. Then it follows me down the page. I wish it would take the rather obvious hint, I am not interested.

How do I stop this behavior please? It is only meant to artificially increase video view counts and helps no one. It is wasting my time, as I have to click the video to close it, every time.

Please help.

I am looking for a solution to automate Firefox thorough an external process. I thought I could do this with Autohotkey library, Chrome dev tools and Firefox in debug mode but I have been advised its not secure nor private.

So I am wondering is there way to send/receive JS code or events to Firefox through another process such as Autohotkey or a windows program, Why?

  • Get URL of current tab
  • Set URL of current tab to

I have to be able to do this on the keyboard not through Firefox UI. Thanks :)

I am looking for a bookmarklet, extension or a userscript solution

I have this website (Todoist.com) which is a webapp that has a loading splash screen everytime its opened in a new tab. The only way I know to avoid this constantly loading is to navigate pages on the same tab

Searching all over the web there are solution and extensions to store the current tabs URL to the clipboard but I cant seem to find a single extension to open a URL in clipboard on the current tab

I used to do this through the UI (alt-d, then ctrl-v ) before but I don’t have this option any more.

I can open any link from windows explorer or command line but it is always opened in a new tab or a new window. Any help would be appreciated.

Recently upgraded to 78 from 68. Reader view in 78 has a very distracting actions box (not sure how else to describe it) with options to quit reader view, type controls and audio), which I would like to remove.

Does anyone know how to completely remove this box? Can always use the back button to return to page without reader view.

Please see screenshot.

Note, logged in from Waterfox, since for some reason trying to login with FF 78 rejects exact same login credentials. Inexplicably getting "account not active."

Not sharing data since Waterfox is irrelevant here.

I'm customizing Firefox's look via a userChrome.css file. The only thing I have in my userChrome.css is the following

/* Focused tabs color */ .tab-content[selected="true"] {

 opacity: 1.0 !important;
 background-image: none !important;
 background-color: #797979 !important;

}

which should change the selected tab's background color to #797979.

However, if I check the colors with an external tool (Digital Colour Meter for macOS) I can see that the selected tab's background color ranges from #747474 to #797979, when I'd expect a uniform #797979.

Why am I seeing these inconsistencies?
