At the top of the Firefox Internet browser are the 2 bars for the function keys and the bookmarks or folders. The background color is light gray as standard and often differs little from the background colors of the Internet pages called up. From my point of view, it would be good if you could choose the background color of these Firefox bars yourself.

Hi, I have a Mac running Firefox 84.0.2 and when I type a URL in the address bar and hit return it goes directly to that site.

On my new Mac running the same version of Firefox when I type in a URL it takes me to Google.

Notice in the first screen shot I typed in 'Mozilla' and it took me directly to this page. In the second screen on my new Mac the screen shot shows what happened when I typed 'Mozilla' in the address bar. It took me to Google.

I appreciate any suggestions you might have. I have spent some time trying to figure it out.

Hi !

I apologize if this is a repeat, I looked for this specific question and found things similar but nothing that exactly answers it.

Summary / TL;DR - I have 2 mozilla accounts, each with different email (home and work). I want to associate each account with a different firefox profile, and I am having trouble.

More Detailed Description -

I have 2 mozilla/firefox accounts, 1 for home, 1 for work.

What I want -

When I login to my home account on computer 1, it will load all my home profile details - bookmarks, history, passwords, etc.

When I login to my work account on computer 1, it will load all my work profile details - bookmarks, history, passwords, etc.

I want to sync my home account with my mobile device. I do not want this sync to transfer ANYTHING to my work account.

I am running windows 10, there is 1 user on the computer (me), I do not want to add a second user account.

I tried creating different profiles in Firefox, but they are not associated with a Mozilla account. The default profile is my home profile, so if I log into my work account, the profile does not change, and load different bookmarks, history, passwords, etc.

Also I find that when I am using my work profile, if I click on a URL, it will open the link in the home profile.

This is a problem b/c I have history and passwords in work profile I don't want in home and vice versa. Also I sync home profile on desktop to mobile device, and when I log into different accounts I get that message "another user was sync'd to this computer so if you log in it will bring in all their bookmarks, is that OK?"

I want a Mozilla account with 1 email address associated to a specific profile, so when I change Mozilla accounts it changes the profile automatically.

I do not find anything online that talks about how to do this so it seems like it is impossible but this makes no sense to me.

Any help is appreciated, thank you!

Hi,

Is there a way to disable the little notification that pops up showing what url is being loaded or that pops up when you mouse over a link in the bottom left of the browser?

I'm using an OLED and am trying to disable as many re-current static objects as possible. In my 25 years of web browsing I've never found this to be a useful feature so I'd rather it be disabled.

I can't seem to find any settings pertaining to it and all the info I can find on disabling is quite old and doesn't seem to be accurate anymore.

Any tips would be very appreciated.

I've been at this for 45 minutes. Once and for all, as they say, I would like to get this actually accomplished. <sigh> I would like to synchronize all tabs from Firefox on one computer so that they will all automatically open on Firefox on another computer. What I see on the web is help with Sync: 1. sign in 2. click 'hamburger', my ID, & Sync Now 3 open Firefox on another computer ... and here's where the help diverts from what I would like to do. I do not want, every single time, to manually click 'hamburger', ID, Synced Tabs, etc. I would like Firefox to automatically open all the tabs that were open on the previous computer. I close Firefox on one with, say, 7 tabs open. I open Firefox on another and have ALL tabs propagate. Does anyone out there know of an add-on or some other setting to set? Any help in this would be great.

I'm running Ubuntu 20.10 with GNOME Shell extension Unite which can add the minimize, maximize and close buttons to the top bar and remove the buttons from the title bar of apps. The does not work in Firefox, minimize, maximize & close remain. I'm assuming this is related to Firefox's ability to remove the title bar all together so tabs can be at the top. The Firefox Customize... page allows you to change just about everything else in the UI except these three buttons.

Is there a way to remove Firefox's minimize, maximize and close buttons?

In case it matters I really only care about the Close button (not Close tab) because GNOME Tweaks lets you remove the minimize & maximize buttons from all apps.

Thanks

Having only recently been on here to try to sort out all my Thunderbird E-mail settings, I am now getting the error message 80004005 each time I attempt to send an E-mail from my tiscali.co.uk account. I am using all the recommended settings ( i.e. all the settings recommended by Talk Talk ) except that it seems not possible to combine the connection security setting SSL/TLS with outgoing port number 587 ( which is recommended ! ) Instead, when I enter outgoing port number 587 the connection security setting always defaults to STARTTLS. Could this be the cause of the latest problem ? I never used to get the error message 80004005 before ! And sometimes, when I DON'T get that error message, I get something else instead which says " Your Connection to the Server has Timed-Out." This is clearly rubbish and not correct. For weeks I have had on-going problems of one sort or another with Thunderbird. I have a POP3 account and I am not sufficiently au-fait with computers to think of changing it to IMAP. Any suggestions gratefully received ! SG.

Hey firefox community,

I have an issue where certain add-ons are not loading their icons (greyed out), and after a computer shutdown, or simply closing the window, the icons don't seem to stay in the overflow menu (or the place where you can store addons if you don't want them on the toolbar or the overflow menu). my only option to be able to use the extension is to "re-enable" the extension from the add-on menu.

I've read somewhere on a support thread that it may have something to do with adblockers, and although I do have adguard, I'm not 100% sure if that's the issue, as I tried disabling adguard when loading firefox, and I seemed to only be able to load the add-ons correctly once, but not again (to be fair, not a lot of testing went into this hypothesis or test).

if there is some kinda issue with adguard, I would love to know what I need to do to solve this issue, and if its something else, I would also love to know what else I would need to do, short of a clean install of firefox or something similar, as I have a few add-ons with custom settings, and resetting all of that would be a pain to redo.

thanks for your help.

PS, any additional info needed can be sent over, just may take some time
