Hello,

i have a problem with a personal webextensions, that i have written for my personal use. I add a new protocol in windows 10 pe registry (player://) and use this to start a special windows script.

My extensions put an new menu-entry on right click and rewrite the url from the tab with the the protocol (play://https://www.youtube.com/asanexample).

Now he does nothing in the newest versions of Firefox. I use

browser.tabs.update({url: "play://https://www.youtube.com/asanexample"});

and nothing happends. The tab.url says www.youtube.com, but nothing happends. But when i call

function updateFirstTab(tabs) { var updating = browser.tabs.update(tabs.id, { // active: true, // loadReplace: true, url: "play://https://www.youtube.com/asanexample"}); updating.then(onUpdated, onError); }

var querying = browser.tabs.query({currentWindow:true}); querying.then(updateFirstTab, onError);

and then an:

browser.tabs.create({

   		url:"https://example.org"
 		});

He loads the protocol page and the new created example.org page.

When i use tabs.create he call the protocol, like my old tabs.update code.

Is that an security change? But why tabs.update functioned when i call a tabs.create after it? When i must use tabs.create how can i seamlessly close the newly created tab after call the protocol?

I hope it is a bug in web extension;), why my code has functioned with the tabs.update() so many firefox version along.

thx

When opening a new tab from my Yahoo homepage, I would automatically see a page with buttons at the top of my most commonly used websites---amazon, my email, my bank, etc.

Below those buttons would be links to about a dozen feature-length articles (each link had an image and brief description of the article) from different online news and magazine sources (WAPO, NY Times, New Yorker, Esquire, Vox, etc.) These articles were feature articles and not ads, and they varied in length.

Someone was working on updating my Windows 10 and now I can't access that page. I don't have a name for that page but I do miss it. How can I access that page again?

Whether I was in the standard Firefox search window, or Google, or DuckDuckGo (my preferred choice), I was able to click on a specific topic in the search window and have it automatically open a new window within the Firefox window settings. I can no longer do this with Firefox 100.

Please fix!

Hi there!

My Firefox crashed for some reason and I decided to re-install it. Prior to re-installing I had an older theme from older versions of Firefox installed. It was the pink one of the themes you could choose from the "Application menu" (literal translation from German, the system language I'm using). With the new version installed, I somehow cannot find the old themes anymore. I was wondering if there could be any way of using the old themes in the new version? Thank you for your time in reading this request.

Sincerely, Nikola

I'm trying to load a temporary add-on on my browser, but when I click the button "Load temporary add-on", nothing show up.

I tried to look for errors in the console or debugging tool, but nothing. With snap, I removed with the purge option my Firefox and install it again, but the issue still appears.

Dear Firefox friends, I am using the up-to-date version of Firefox. How can I prevent the search to occur on the URL bar? I want to use the URL bar only for typing the URL addresses but not for search or googling. It is annoying function and if I want to do so I will use Chrome. Thank you for your kind help and advice.

Dear Cor-el,

Thank you for responding and answering my question. You have helped me out gratefully! Your answer is right, easy to understand and to fulfill. I can move those icons from now on. Hereby I have an other question. I have more extensions added, but not all of those icons are shown in the toolbar. How do I realize that?

Real example I have in the toolbar 4 extension icons but I have 7 extension enabled. Where have been those other 3 icons?

Regards,

Van Lieren

Until the last FF release (99), when I downloaded files from my bank for MSMoney FF would apply the action to use the MS Money import handler. Not anymore. FF will now only save the file. Even if I choose "always ask" it still just saves the file - never asks what to do with it (save or open with). Please fix this. It's worked fine for decades and now doesn't work at all. I tried adding images to show what happens but the ones that show what FF is doing and the FF settings won't upload. Only the banking download page images will upload. They just show that I pick MSMoney as the download format.
