Hello,

I have Firefox with two profiles, Personal and Work. I also have a VPN provided by the company which is setup on Windows 10 as a Public Network, on both profiles the network settings are the same and while the Personal has anti ads and privacy plugins, the Work doesn't have a single plugin.

My issue is that the Personal profile is able to use the VPN and access the work network while the Work profile is not. With both network settings matching, are there any settings in the About:config that i can check that would co-relate with the issue that i'm having?

In the latest version of Firefox Developer Edition, I notice the the urlbar behaviour has changed from what it was before and I want to change it back. Are there any settings in about:config that do this? In particular, I want to stop expanding and even showing suggestions whenever I click in the address bar. To me, this is odd and distracting behaviour and not what is done by other browsers so I want to turn it off.

I have a question regarding PWA support on Firefox desktop. I am not sure how to frame this correctly, but I hope I am able to list the problem statement.

Basically, I plan to migrate my existing mobile and desktop website to single PWA based responsive website. Right now, I have mobile website which is a PWA, and a desktop website. Goal is to have a single PWA based responsive website for both mobile and desktop platform. However, I want to make sure the proposed website will work with Firefox desktop. From what I could find Firefox doesn't support option to install PWA as an app with it's own shortcut as it is possible in Chrome. But I want to make sure it supports rest of the features of PWA, and website still works correctly in terms of UI and experience as in case when it is accessed from Chrome browser.

Appreciate a response on this. In case you require more clarity on the problem statement, do let me know.

  • Firefox crashes whenever the Windows file dialog is displayed (e.g. if choosing a save location when downloading files).
  • SolidWorks PDM appears to cause this, see information here: https://forum.solidworks.com/thread/220894
  • Until two days ago, running Firefox in Windows 7 compatibility mode solved the problem. However running Firefox in Windows 7 compatibility mode now results in blank tabs - similar to as described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1231445.

So I am caught between a rock and a hard place. I have to switch off compatibility mode for browsing to work. But then Firefox crashes any time I want to download or upload a file.

If anyone has any idea's I'd appreciate it. I really don't want to be forced back onto Chrome...

So I unpinned the shortcut from the task bar and pinned the Firefox start button (from the Start menu) to the task bar. Now Firefox is responsive but my bookmarks are missing. I went to "about:profiles" and saw that there are two profiles now. If I select the original profile I again get the 5 faulty instances of Firebox. I can't figure out how to import my bookmarks into the new profile. Any help?

I altered the about:config and did this as shown in another post, but to no avail browser.selfsupport.url. double-click it and change its value to a blank string Here is a sreen grab of the connections I get on start-up, sometimes it takes about 5 mins before I can use the internet. (I have almsot the slowest connection in the UK, at 0.03 MB/sec, 34kbps), so this would only slow down a fast connection for a matter of seconds. I live high in the mountains with no wi-fi and only an old copper phone line to carry my signal.

I often use two Firefox instances side-by-side, splitting the screen in half by dragging each instance to the left and right edges, allowing Windows 10 to anchor them as half-screen windows.

Due to limited screen size, I'd like to be able to select full screen on each window and have them go full screen, but only within the window, not each enlarging to fill the entire display.

The reason for this is that I want to eliminate the tabs and menu bar, and the Windows taskbar from view in order to see more of the browser content. Naturally, the only way I've been able to do this so far is to have a two-monitor setup, full screening Firefox on each one.
