I've installed Firefox Multi-Account containers but I don't have either the shortcut in the upper right corner, nor the option to open a link in a new container (see screenshots attached). I've removed and added the add-on several times as well as doing clean installs of Firefox. Nothing is allowing me to use containers, though it shows installed.

I have made no changes to the default preferences (wanted to get this working before tweaking) and the only other add-ons I have are NoScript and YouTube Flash Player by Maxime RF. Removing either or both of those has no impact on my problem, as far as I can tell. Enable Container Tabs is checked (and grayed out) in Preferences, as the add-on requires it.

I'm on Firefox 77.0.1 (64bit) Clean install of pop!_OS 20.04 LTS

This is immensely frustrating, so any help would be appreciated!

I'm running Firefox 77.0.1 (64-bit) ["About Firefox" says it's up to date] on a MacBook Air under Catalina (System Version: macOS 10.15.4 (19E287). and trying to use the Screenshots tool. The Firefox Screenshots help page says

"To use Firefox Screenshots, click on the Page actions menu in the address bar and select  Take a Screenshot from the drop-down."

There isn't any "Page actions" menu: not in the address bar itself, not in the dropdown menu for Firefox, File, View, History (of course), Bookmarks (ditto), Tools, Window, or Help. So how do I access the Screenshots tool?

Hello, all...

I'm running Solus 4.1 with the 5.6.18-155 kernel on my Asus UX330UAR and Firefox Nightly 79.0a1 (2020-06-26) (64-bit). Currently, I used Android Messages for Web via a "webapp" in Brave and am provided a "desktop icon" for that window; however, I'd much rather use my default Firefox and just discovered the "browser.ssb.enabled" setting.

The "trouble" is doing so does not provide any icon to launch by itself; that is, I must be already in Firefox to use the "App Mode."

Any ideas on how to accomplish this dream?

Thanks for any ideas!

For instance I would like to restrict all extensions when I am using my bank's website, I would allow add blocking on all sites but I would not allow extensions that access my data on ebay, paypal, gmail, etc. Is there a way to do this per extension and per web site?

EDIT: Never mind! I was being dumb! I had to install the extension!

From "about:preferences#general" I click "Extensions & Themes" on the bottom left side.

This takes me to "about:addons" where it says "Feeling creative? Build your own theme with Firefox Color." at the bottom.

I click the second sentence which is a hyperlink that then takes me to "Firefox Color", the website to make your own themes.

I made my own theme using the "Custom colors" and "Custom backgrounds" and then saved it using the "Save" button that has a heart above it on the ribbon at the top of the page. This adds it to the "Saved themes" tab on the ribbon that includes (from left to right) "Preset themes", "Custom colors", and "Custom backgrounds".

However, when I go back to "about:addons" to apply my theme, it is not there, even after refreshing the page.

There is no "Save" (aside from the one that put the theme into the "Saved Themes" tab), "Install", or "Download" buttons on Firefox Color for my theme as far as I can see.

So, what am I doing wrong? I'm about 99% sure that I am being big dumb right now and missing something glaringly obvious in this whole process.

I appreciate any and all help or advice! Thank you in advance!

Seems that youtube has taken away the ability to use the old layout with many columns so it wants to show annoyingly large things on the screen and with way too few columns. (Yes, strange enough, I want to see more than 2 columns on a 65" display)

Thus the extension that I was using earlier to force youtube to use old layout obviously no longer works.

I found that if I set the zoom to 67% and remove the checkbox that allows the site to set own fonts and sizes, along with using font 24 as minimum size seems to produce a readable text size and yet show 6 videos/column.

But I do not want to have other sites like that, so would want to apply it only to youtube as most other sites have actually fairly ok font sizes compared to other elements on the page and ok at 100% zoom level.

Hi Folks, In the last couple of days the display in my Task Bar has changed and I want the 'old' display back.

It used to be that only the first tab I had open was on show and when I clicked on it my browser would pop up, all complete with as many tabs as I had open. If perchance I had two copies of my browser open then they'd appear side by side.

Now however, all opened tabs are on show - and I don't like it. Today for example I have four tabs open (as seen below) and if I hover my pointer over any one of them then it displays as a thumbnail and if I hold my pointer over any one tab then it displays on screen. But I want to go back to the 'old' way with each opened browser showing but with other tabs hidden.

How can I do that?

Hi :) I have a problem with FireFox and I hope someone will be able to help me sort it out :) After the last update there is a new "feature" that is driving me insane and it's slowing me down to the point I'm ready to ditch FF. I'm talking about the "Open with Firefox" option, under "What should Firefox do with this file?". Is there any way for me to remove this "feature" from the dialog and to revert to the old "Open with..." and "Save File" list? Why is this thing there in the first place, I wonder?!
