It used to be that downloading something like a pdf and then clicking on it through the downloads dropdown would immediately open the pdf in the default system pdf viewer. Now I get a pop-up telling me the Portal "Open with" is ready which then presents me with a set of options for where to open the file. I have looked around for anyone else with this problem but haven't found anyone.

Additional info: If I use the show enclosing folder feature it actually shows me a temp folder (image attached)

There is no option to add new tab(s) between a specific location. From specific location, I intended to add a new tab between two tabs, not at the end of all the tabs. To make it more understandable, here is a scenario:

For example, on my Firefox browser, following tabs are opened in the order as follows: Tab1, Tab2, Tab3, Tab4, Tab5, Tab6.

Now, I wanted to add a Tab7, but not at the end, as it happens usually. I want to add it between Tab2 and Tab3 directly without manually dragging it in between and hence I want to get the following order:

Tab1, Tab2, Tab7, Tab3, Tab4, Tab5 and Tab6.

Unlike other browsers like Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge Chromium, I feel this is a subtle feature which is missing in Firefox. In those browsers, you can just directly right-click on the opened tab and click "New Tab", which adds a new tab in between the opened tab and the adjacent one.

I really wish this feature is provided as soon as possible on Firefox too.

Thank You. Regards, VIVEK.

Software: Manjaro Linux, GNOME, Xorg, Firefox 81 Hardware: nvidia GTX 1080 and AMD RX 570

I have a multigpu Linux machine and would like to configure Firefox to only use the AMD card for hardware acceleration.

Rationale: My Xorg is configured to only use the RX 570. My GTX1080 is mostly used to pass through to a Windows VM, but occasionally I do use it in Linux so do not want to disable it completely. This is usually seamless, when the card is not in use: When I start up the Windows VM, it unbinds the GTX1080 from the driver and passes the hardware through. When Firefox is running with hardware acceleration enabled, however, it can not unbind the GTX1080. It seems that Firefox is "using" the nvidia card, so I just want to disable that without disabling hardware acceleration entirely.

Im trying to get browser notifications to show up on top of a game im running but they never appear while focused in the other window (running in borderless fullscreen).

i tried changing focus assist options in win10 as suggested somewhere but i dont think i had that on in the first place, and it didnt fix the issue.

Also, any way to turn off the transparency on the notification popup would be a cherry on top

Hello,

I can't order the add-on icons on the toolbar.

1) I have more add-ons than I can fit on the toolbar, and 2) the overflow menu does not display all the icons for all the add-ons that I have installed.

So, in the toolbar customization menu, I can not place the icons where I want them on the toolbar because I can't drag them there when they are not shown. See the picture I took of the screen. The first picture shows the customization menu. The overflow menu is visible, but does not show all the icons that should be there (see the second picture). The second picture from the normal screen (not the toolbar customization screen) and shows the all the icons of all the add-ons I have installed that appear when I click on "More tools" in the top right hand part of the screen. Part of the icons is on the toolbar, part is in the overflow menu.

So, the problem is that I can't re-order the icons by dragging them from the overflow menu to the place on the toolbar where I would like them to be (e.g. to group related add-ons).

Is this an error made by me or an error in the program.

If possible, I would like to have all my icons visible, not partially hidden away in the overflow menu. Is it possible to have two or more rows of icons visible?

Please, help. Thank you.

Formerly there used to be a Firefox icon in the top left of the Firefox window (left of the menu bar; I'm not sure if it was actually part of the menu bar or not). This icon no longer appears. I found it useful because I use several browsers, and it's handy sometimes to be sure which one I'm in! Also to tell the difference between regular Firefox and DeveloperEdition (Red and Blue icons respectively). Is there any way I can get this icon to display in current versions of Firefox? Please note I'm NOT asking how to display the menu bar. I can do that.

I am running firefox 82.0, 64bit. I came home today and when i opened firefox to my home page, the primary theme/background is the same, but the text boxes are now pure white. I had them set to a brown color, and chrome shows my homepage with the correct text box color of brown. I have tried using Options/fonts and colors, and it does nothing. What do I need to do to get the text box backgrounds back to a more soothing contrast color?

I've used Firefox for several years. Up until recently, anytime I would type the beginning of a heavily visited site, I could simply hit enter and it would autocomplete the website for me. It doesn't do that anymore, and I either have to type out the entire website, click it in the 'suggestions' that drop down, or click it in my bookmarks. I used to be able to type 'gmai' and hit enter to go to gmail, now it just searches 'gmai' on Google. Is there some setting I'm missing? This is extremely frustrating.

Hi, I have started to use notion.so and they have a nice range of keyboard shortcuts, e.g.

Unfortunately this shortcut is already "blocked" by Firefox for opening "New Private Windows".

There is no chance to alter the keyboard-shortcuts on notion, so I wonder if anyone can help me with remapping this one in Firefox to, let's say: cmd + alt + n?
