Hello, I just built a new PC and have a fresh install of Firefox.

As seen in the image, the default 'search' that I type into the address bar is trying to go to a webpage (the web/globe icon) I would like it to default to search, (like the magnifying glass icon), rather than having to press the down arrow to get to it.

I had this functionality on the old computer. Curious how to get it back. Thank you.

This annoying notification on the bottom right keeps popping up everytime I take a screenshot. I've been using computers for the past 17 years, I know how to paste things by now. Even worse, it overlays on other applications and pesters me there for about 10 seconds until I close it. Can this notification be hidden in about config or do I have to find a community add on that does the same thing, but without this stupid notification?

As from v100.0, Firefox allows users to "set their preferred color schemes for websites".

Ironically, this does not addresses complaints from users, including me, who wish for a consistent Light theme all across Firefox.

Even if "Web site appearance" is set as Light, the following still remain dark:

  • Background of main drop-down menu (Containing "Sync and save data", "New tab", "Print", "Settings", etc)
  • Background of right-click menu (Containing the refresh icon, "Save page as", "View page source", etc)
  • Background of "Please enter primary password" menu
  • Background of auto-filled user name and password menus
  • Background of elements in a bookmark folder
  • Background of Downloads menu
  • Background of Print menu
  • Background of "Clear all history" menu
  • Background of "Find on this page" menu
  • Background of "You are about to close X tabs" warning menu
  • Colour of title bar for "About Mozilla Firefox" window, when the window is not currently active

Being able to set "browser.theme.toolbar-theme" permanently as 2 would fix all of the above, but users are still (Note: Since v96.0, when this complaint was raised) prevented from doing so. Why?

I currently have this add-on installed. It allows you to you highlight certain text, then right click and open up a link to Wiktionary in another tab. Up until a few minutes ago, this menu item was at the very top of the list (i.e. above "undo" and all the rest), but now it's been moved down with all the other add-ons. Image for further clarity.

The add-on hasn't been updated in 6 years, so it's certainly not that. I don't recall doing anything to make it change, but before this, it had been at the top of the menu ever since I added it maybe 2 years ago. Is there any potential way to restore this functionality? The fact that it appeared at the very top of the menu might have been a bug, but if that's the case, it was certainly a convenient one.

Anyway, I'll be looking forward to hearing from you fine folks in this community.

Hello! Hoping someone can help with this new (to me) issue. I've searched and can't seem to find any articles/threads.

When I open the wifi menu on my laptop, I also see a media player featuring a video I watched three days ago (image attached). I've used my computer several times since then and didn't notice it. It also doesn't appear to be functional, as when I click play, nothing happens.

Is there a setting I'm missing to get this to go away and to prevent it from coming back again?

Thanks in advance!

Why why why why is FF forcing download of pdf files? It is a horrible problem for me.

Especially because I am a university prof and, in the classroom, constantly display (my own!) files from the course management system on the classroom devices. I DO NOT WANT MY FILES SAVED ONTO THE (PUBLIC) CLASSROOM DEVICE. Never mind multiple copies as it will download EACH AND EVERY TIME I open it.

I have been looking everywhere for a solution or a way to disable this feature, there seems to be no such option but I am seeing a lot of posts from people who object to this as much as I do.

After many many years of loyally using FF and a paid subscriber to some Mozilla services, I am afraid I am going to have to give up using FF is this isn't fixed NOW.

Good day. I use Firefox everyday to connect to network devices that produce PCAP files. These files are opened in Wireshark. I am running macOS Monterey 12.3.1. In the past, I was able to click on the pcap file in the browser and Firefox would launch Wireshark and open the file. It was very quick and saved me a bunch of time. However all of a sudden this stopped. It now asks me to download the file and then I need to go looking for it and doubleclick on it to open. I read a bunch of articles but none appear to work; for instance, there is no option to `open with` (as some articles claim) when the download dialog box pops up. I tried looking for the handlers.json file and tried these two options, none of which worked:

Tried this one first `"application/x-pcapfile":{"action":4,"extensions":["pcap"]}`

Then tried this one `"application/pcap-file":{"action":4,"extensions":["pcap"]},"application/x-pcapfile":{"action":4,"extensions":["pcap"]}`

All it did is reset the handlers.json and created a `handlers.json.corrupt`

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
