Just a suggestion for the team behind pocket. I don't believe that articles that show up in my pocket feed should come from websites that have a soft paywall. Would y'all consider blacklisting websites from pocket suggestions who do this?

Hello!

When I open a new tab (about:home), autofocus is transferred to the address bar. I need to click on something to remove focus. I want to disable this behavior.

After searching the Internet, I came across only similar problems, but without solutions. I did not find anything in about:config.

Is there a way to disable this autofocus without patches and extensions?

I see that at some point, probably the latest Firefox update, nearly all addons are disabled, and have no ability to re enable. Just as an example, "Downthemall". The "..." menu only has remove or report. Same for Adblock plus, back is close, dozens of others. Go to the page, eg https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/downthemall/ and install turns into "enable" which does nothing as well.

I run Linux Mint 19.1 MATE desktop 64 bit and its language is US English, and when I am filling in a web form, I have set my language in Firefox to English (United States) -- Context menu > Language.

Invariably, when the repository brings me a new Firefox (now 73.0 64-bit), I find such misspelled words as "color" and "center," ("colour" and "centre" preferred), when I am commenting on a web form's Comment box. I look and it is set to English (United Kingdom). I set it to (United States) and it's good to go again until the next upgrade!

I presume it has more to do with the Firefox repository than with the Mozilla developers and the Firefox "factory," to draw a comparison with the local Cadillac dealership and the factory. "Comparison" wasn't the word I was looking for, here!

Any ideas or suggestions how to stop this preference change? Thank you.

I'm using Manjaro Linux with a gtk-theme of Adapta-Nokto-Eta-Maia, which is a dark theme, and I set the widget.content.gtk-theme-override to Adapta-Eta-Maia, which is the light version of the theme. I was using FF72 and didn't had any problems until I updated the browser to v73. Firefox just use the dark theme and ignore the theme set in widget.content.gtk-theme-override. Is there a way to fix this problem?

I also tried a maintained gtk-theme, Matcha and there are no changes.

Unfortunately I have to often log onto a website that has a popup password system. The main problem is that as long as the popup is present, Firefox is completely locked up. Basically, until I either cancel the login or I actually login, I can't click any tab, access any extension, or do anything else.

Is there a way to modify this behaviour and keep Firefox usable in these cases?

When using "chrome_url_overrides" in the manifest.json of my addon to change the new tab page, is it possible to focus on an element in the page?

My manifest is this:

   {
   	"manifest_version": 2,
   	"name": "Simple Startpage",
   	"version": "1.0",
   
   	"description": "My very simple start page",
   
   	"chrome_url_overrides": {
   		"newtab": "index.html"
   	}
   }

`index.html` is a normal HTML page that references an `index.js` which contains code something like this:

   window.onload = () => {document.getElementById("search").focus()}

However, when I open a new page, it focuses the address bar at the top instead of my element. Is there an approach I could take to this that would let me focus that element? Directly opening the file verifies that the focus() works.
