I often use shortcuts on youtube like f to fullscreen, k to pause, ; to slow, : to speed up but since recently any button (unless I'm in a text window) is opening the find option and it's driving me crazy cause I can't find it anywhere in the options or a fix to the problem! I cannot use shortcuts for youtube anymore and its really annoying

I have searched and tried every change / setting I can find to disable the automatic updates of Firefox. I am using Firefox because I use to have control over the browser and it was tracking / spying on everything I do like Chrome. Having Firefox automatically update without my permission I see as no different then a virus and spy ware. I am in the middle doing some work and have to stop and loos everything I am doing because you pushed an unneeded unwanted update. This is not acceptable! I do not need some company that thinks they know what I should have on my computer. That is why I don't use Windows. I don't need some corporate suite telling me what is best for my computer.

How do I turn off automatic updates and all / any nag messages.

Just today 7/17/21 my bookmarks toolbar disappeared but I was able to restore it. But all the saved bookmarks in the bookmarks toolbar that always appeared in Bookmarks Toolbar don't appear in the Bookmarks Toolbar column. AND when I try to add bookmarks to the bookmark toolbar a circle with a line through it appear preventing me from adding bookmarks. Couldn't find any solutions online in Firefox Help websites. Does anyone have a solution to restore saved bookmarks to bookmarks toolbar and add new bookmarks like I have always done? Thank you.

How can I get my saved logons to sync across from the old PC to the new one?

I recently reinstalled Firefox after doing a full Windows reinstall on my PC. Since then, my bookmarks are not displaying on the bookmarks toolbar. I've "refreshed" Firefox from the control panel, rebooted my PC, and reinstalled Firefox. I've also moved the bookmarks from the toolbar folder in the bookmark manager and then put them back. Any suggestions?

I just upgraded from FF 89 to FF 90 (on Ubuntu) and the drop down menus (accessed on right-click) are now transparent. I have changed the theme, changed my desktop theme, started FF in troubleshoot mode, disabled acceceration in about:config, and it makes no difference, the menus are still transparent. This makes it difficult to use the browser.

Is this fixable or is it a bug in the latest release?

zefir_zwiejek said

I have several hundred tabs, tick them all and want to bookmark them, but that never works. I'm not sure what "tick them all" refers to.

There's no built-in way to bookmark all open tabs across all windows at once, but Firefox does have a feature to bookmark all of the tabs in the current window to a new folder. The shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+D, or you can find it on

classic Bookmarks menu on the optional menu bar optional Bookmarks menu button for the main toolbar Does that feature work? If not, is there any error message?

Are you still able to add one bookmarks manually, for example by clicking the star icon in the address bar? If that doesn't work, it can indicate a database problem (more details if needed).

I will also add that the "Settings" menu does not open! Settings, formerly called Options, should open an internal page in a new tab. If you type or paste the address about:preferences into the address bar and press Enter, can Firefox show the page?


==Ctrl+Shift+D = NOT WORK / NOR REACTION / NO MESSAGE ERROR /NOTHING HAPPEN This marks 1000 Tabs, but nothing else can be done, no reaction, no error, no message, I don't know how to write or add 1000 tabs to the bookmarks, I asked a many developers, for 3 years and no one can help, I tried 100 different ways and there's nothing I can do, do I really need to lose my data? "Reset firefox completely" = data loss Even moving the profile and trying to restore it always ends with the same problem, still nothing works, how to save all 1000 tabs to a text file, even the best of the best ways fails, because after saving it is 0KB, no data !!!

Hello, I have Firefox on all of my devices (Win10Pro, Fire tablet, Samsung phone, etc.). Recently got a Raspberry Pi 4 (Linux) with a 24" (1920x1080) monitor and Firefox (78.11.0esr 32 bit) seems to 'default' to Mobile. How do I change to Desktop globally? Google Search comes up in the middle third of the screen. (Search dropped "Linux" from the search I tried on subject - Google is becoming worthless.) Amazon.com comes up as text on the left side. I don't want to have to manually change from Mobile to Desktop for each site that I visit. PLEASE, don't make me use Chromium....

Thanks!

I operate a website in which the body background is black. My background image has a black background. And inside the body, I place a white-background div, which carries the text. My issue is, the scroll trough is some shade of black and the scrollbar is a lesser shade of black.

On any white-body website, I have visible shades of grey and I can see my scrollbar controls.

Where do I go to apply !important CSS rules to my browser interface? I want to establish a suitable color scheme for my scrollbars that override website CSS.

//EDIT: I've found a few typos and fixed them, above. I have then added the text below:.

If I edit the stylesheet to change the body background color on the website, it affects the scrollbar coloring, and ruins the website appearance.

Only if some developer would use the Linux system colors in Firefox so that theme colors are the same in Firefox as they are in the Linux apps that follow the rules, then Firefox would be a much better browser. Is there an add-on that will resolve this issue?

Is there a CSS fix that I can apply? In past decades, websites wanted to color the scrollbars but they are the property of the user, not an extension of the website. What's become of that idea?

Hello. For searching with search engine I always use an advanced search providing options (never the address bar search engine suggestion of FF). Thus the engine suggestion, located on the 1st line of the drop-down list of suggestions, is just annoying due to its uselessness and its location before my helpful bookmarks and browsing history.

It's just a detail but the clearer the visual information are (without any interference, noise), the faster the right choice is made.

I tuned FF configuration as neatly as possible about this topic but the phenomenon persists. Privacy & security -> Address bar: 'Search engines' is unchecked. Search -> Search bar: 'Search bar in tool bar' is preferred to avoid it to operate in the type field (no option for no search at all).

           -> 'Provide search suggestions' is unchecked.
           -> 'Search Shortcuts' are unchecked for search engines.

Please see screen shots attached.

Could FF experts provide any help ? Regards. j-p

The other day I started seeing a white bar at the top of full screen videos. Not just YouTube but any site that uses a video. It's very annoying. I've tried disabling ad blocking, various features in Firefox, my AV, plugins, and anything else I can find to no avail. Using the Developer tools doesn't see anything where the white bar is. It's driving me nuts! What would be causing this white bar and how do I remove it?
