Over the past few days, I've been having an issue with Firefox suddenly disabling and turning off add ons. Specifically, I have the Adblock Plus add on, to block and stop advertisements, spyware, and social media tracking. I will get a behavior in a website I'm not used to getting, like a window asking me if I wish to permit cookies, or sometimes a pop-up ad, and then I'll see that the ABP Stop Sign icon is no longer visible in the toolbar. I will have to go into the Add Ons control page, and click for it to be turned on again, and then go back and reload the page. What is happening here that Firefox is suddenly shutting down add ons? What is the solution to this?

Issue: After searching on Duck Duck Go ("test video") and clicking a link for a YouTube video the link opens in a new tab, but multiple tabs of the same page are opened. It is usually 2-3 tabs each time.

My Set Up: I opened YouTube and assigned it to open in a specified container. Not currently logged in to YouTube/Google services. I am running a fresh install of Firefox 79 on Windows 10. Everything is up to date as far as I can tell.

What I've Tried: I was trying to troubleshoot last night using refresh and ended up doing a complete reinstall this morning, including a deletion/recreation of Firefox account.

Intended Behavior: When clicking on a YouTube link from a tab not assigned to a container, I want it to open a (one single) new tab in the container that Google services are assigned to.

Any idea how to fix this behavior?

I made a new profile and was able to re-create the same bug in safe mode just to be sure. Anytime I try to open a swf file, firefox will not open it but instead ask what I should do with the file, over and over again. I have properly installed flash in the $MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH directory that firefox looks for; if I go to the plugins section, it shows adobe flash. I also have the ability to play flash files on websites, just not locally. On the profile I'm using to reproduce the error, the http_https_only tag in about:config is set to 'false', so [[this|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1172126]] is irrelevant. I made sure that firefox is indeed what is set to open these types of files via the xdg specifications that firefox searches for when looking what to open a file with via xdg-mime (firefox uses xdg-open on the linux version to see what to open with): xdg-mime default firefox.desktop application/x-shockwave-flash In $HOME/.config/mimeapps.list, it is properly listed in the line applications/x-shockwave-flash=firefox.desktop Firefox does have a .desktop file setup in /usr/share/applications, and xdg-mime does recognize firefox as the app to open swf files. I am able to open other types of files locally such as videos. Going to about:preferences and setting firefox to open swf files makes an infinite loop of firefox opening new tabs that must be then terminated. I'm not sure if an update broke firefox, as I was previously able to open local swf files. Thanks.

I have one main email address plus several others. Usually when I log on to Thunderbird all the four email adresses, each with with its own set of subfolders appears on the opening Thunderbird screen on a vertical panel on the left. I can then click on to any of the four and see their incoming and sent messages. This has worked well for some years.

Yesterday, for no reason I can think of, only the main email (with its subfolders) appears. I cannot make the others re-appear, although I know they received emails in the last few hours.

Please help Dumbfounded

I want to use CTRL + SHIFT + H to open up my Home Page, preferably overriding my current open tab.

I was planning on using a macro to set the hotkey to CTRL + SHIFT + H. And direct that macro hotkey to use a Mozilla Firefox shortcut that opens up the Home Page.

But I ran into a problem. The Firefox Shortcut page says that ALT + H opens up the Home Page. When I tried it, all it did was toggle the top menu bar off and on, or open up a Firefox Help Page.

So then I looked at my Saka Keys extension to see if there was an option to set a hotkey for the Home Page. There was none.

Then I tried installing another shortkeys extension. Again, no option to set a hotkey to open up the Home Page.

Then I did more searching and I found various extensions that will open up the Home Page in a new tab. Not what I want, ideally, but I had a look at the extensions anyway. Unfortunately, you can't use a hotkey to open up the tab to that specific Home Page. It just goes to the Home Page automatically when you open up a new tab. You don't use a shortcut. This is problematic because I already have my new tab set to a different website, and I don't want to replace that website with the Home Page. I want to keep the same website for new tabs, and just open up a freaking Home Page using a shortcut.

Firefox has really gotten stupid ever since Quantum. Thanks Firefox!

Hi

I want to be able to stop autofill for a single website but keep it on for everything else.

I run a website that means I have to input a lot of data into boxes and Firefox annoyingly wants to auto fill every box meaning the data gets messed up from time to time.

Is there anyway to disable it for single sites?

Hi all,

I am trying to customize my Firefox on Mac because the tabs on top interfere with the menu bar, thus I only want tree-style tab extension to work on the side, with the tabs on top disabled.

I followed this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1184674#answer-1028260 as well as this clear guide on how to create userChrome.css: https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html When I tried to restart the browser, I seemed to have been logged out of my profile, with all customization gone and a standard white (instead of black) menu. I deleted the chrome folder and it is normal again now.

I suspect the userChrome.css file should contain more than just the one line I tried to add: #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } ; Is there any location where I can copy my current intra-browser customization into the userChrome.css file?

Somehow Firefox's address bar gets worse and worse every year (I've been using Firefox since 2004). I have it set both on my desktop computer and my Microsoft Surface to just show my bookmarked pages (since I can no longer control what pages show up on the drop down menu otherwise); this used to be fine (other than not being able to bookmark a ton of pages to keep it from being cluttered), but now nothing shows up on my Surface unless I type in the address bar. If I click the bar, nothing happens. It works fine on my desktop. I've messed with different settings trying to figure it out.

I used to use an addon called Oldbar or something to have some control over my address bar like the old days, since Mozilla saw it fit to take that control away from us, but now that addon no longer works. I just want a controlled list of my frequently visited websites. Why bother having a search bar if the address bar STILL tries to do searches? If I wanted to do a search, I would use the search bar. FIX THE ADDRESS BAR.
