Hello. I like to end my text conversations with this cute little fish: <{~~< But it's quite difficult to type on a desktop, so I made a shortcut to it in my mac OS, by typing pf. It works everywhere on my machine but on firefox, which is my preferred browser for chatting, so it's the only time I really need to use it. It's a serious buzzkil, especially since it SHOULD WORK, but doesn't. Can anyone help? I'm on a brand new machine, with a brand new (June 29 2020) download of Firefox with the french canadian language pack installed (it didn't work before I put the language pack on either).

Thanks in advance.

Firefox 78 sometimes fails to block autoplay, e.g. scrolling the front page of reddit.com or a subreddit will intermittently show videos playing.

This worked in 77. Some about:config entries I'd swear were set in 77 have vanished; I tried adding them manually, but the autoplay blocking is still hit and miss.

Also, not sure if Troubleshooting Information uploaded successfully or the page broke (see screenshot).

Firefox 75.0 has just been released. Address bar has been ruined with dynamic size and lines with increased height. For some unknown reason Mozilla developers think that taking away more vertical space will help their browser have "Focused, clean search experience that's optimized for smaller laptop screens" as they state in the release notes. Outrageous.

Now tell me how to go back to the old behavior.

I want a full horizontal length search result widget as it was before.

I DO NOT want an ENLARGED address bar while searching. Simply annoying that it changes its size and looks like popping out from the upper top toolbar every damn time I type something into it.

I want the ORIGINAL LINE HEIGHT of search results in the expanded address bar.

I want an address bar that doesn't expand when focused with Alt+D, like the old one.

I haven't found an about:config option to restore old behavior. However, a userChrome.css workaround is still good for me.

Hi,

I had applied the settings to disable the new urlbar features, but as of version 77 these no longer work.

I absolutely hate this change; it does nothing useful, it interferes with viewing the page, and it very much feels to me like change for the sake of change.

If someone can pass this on to whoever makes these unilateral decisions :

Don't make changes to the user interface that are not optional. How do they not understand that changing the UI for hundreds of millions of people is not a good idea?

So my question is, how do I disable the new urlbar "features" and return to a plain static one?

This is driving me nuts.

My desired behavior is that, when I middle-mouse-click on a hyperlink, Firefox launches a new window (not a tab) with that URL.

This is how it was working before a power interruption forced my computer to restart tonight, and my desired behavior has gone away.

The middle mouse button works for other functions; and, middle-clicking on bookmarks in my bookmark bar does launch a new window with that bookmark as expected. However, middleclicking a hyperlink does nothing.

I have browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick = false and in the options menu, "open links in tabs instead of new windows" is unchecked. Additionally I have set browser.link.open_newwindow = 2.

Can anyone help me here? This is driving me slightly batty.

Hi there :-)

W.r.t. FireFox 77, I need to know if the 'Open Menu' button on the far right of the default installation is PROGRAMMATICALLY customizable ? I want to remove it as part of hardening the browser for a desktop application that must be accessible via the Internet. While I respect the fact that client-side hardening is not best practice, let's not go there please :-)

I have successfully used userChrome.css, but I don't want to have to place this file manually nor manually set the 'toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets' preference to 'true' on all the client machines, but rather manage this centrally on the server side as is possible with autoconfig.cfg together with the autoadmin.global_config_url preference setting. Is it possible?

I have also tried specifying the 'browser.uiCustomization.state' in the autoconfigfile.js file changing the default 'about:config' setting from this >>>

{"placements":{"widget-overflow-fixed-list":[],"nav-bar":["back-button","forward-button","stop-reload-button","home-button","customizableui-special-spring1","urlbar-container","customizableui-special-spring2","downloads-button","library-button","sidebar-button","fxa-toolbar-menu-button"],"toolbar-menubar":["menubar-items"],"TabsToolbar":["tabbrowser-tabs","new-tab-button","alltabs-button"],"PersonalToolbar":["personal-bookmarks"]},"seen":["developer-button","webide-button"],"dirtyAreaCache":["nav-bar","toolbar-menubar","TabsToolbar","PersonalToolbar","widget-overflow-fixed-list"],"currentVersion":16,"newElementCount":10}

to this ('pref') format >>> {\"placements\":{\"nav-bar\":[\"stop-reload-button\",\"customizableui-special-spring1\",\"urlbar-container\",\"customizableui-special-spring2\",\"downloads-button\"]},\"dirtyAreaCache\":[\"nav-bar\"],\"currentVersion\":16,\"newElementCount\":10}

but while the other controls are removed, the 'Open Menu' button as well as the 'Back' and 'Forward' arrows are not removed even after restarting Firefox. Is there another preference that should be used to remove or hide at least the 'Open Menu' button?

Thanks for your help. APB
