Ik heb een vraag ?

Als ik mijn Firefox twee x open, en dan weer beide sluit zijn de volgende x als ik mijn Firefox open al me tabbladen in eens weg en moet ik ze opnieuw vast zetten.

Hoe kan ik het zo in stellen ook al open in 100x Firefox en weer sluit dat hij de Tabbladen onthoud en dat ik ze niet steeds opnieuw moet vast maken ?

Met vriendelijke groet

The issue I am facing, and for which I direct my question to all you intelligent beings, is that my network is being hammered by connections to firefox-settings-attachments.cdn.mozilla.net.

When looking at the squid logs, I see the following: access.log:1678216931.488 170104 1.2.3.155 TCP_TUNNEL/200 11400353 CONNECT firefox-settings-attachments.cdn.mozilla.net:443 - CARP/1.2.2.11 -

If I understand correctly, this connection is to download new files that pertain to security, cert revocation lists, blocklists, plus a bunch of non-security related stuff.

The question is, how do I make this file downloaded as small as possible while still keeping the security bits... (saw this page, and followed what I thought pertinent https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections) The second question is... can we do a scheduled window to perform these downloads?

If you are asking why I am having network issues over 11 Mb, the answer is that all my clients go through a corporate proxy... We have many thousand devices and last time we choked the network with 80GB downloaded on a timeframe of 15 min.

Thanks much!

Firefox behavior with virtual desktops in Windows 10

Hello dear Firefox experts,

I have been using Firefox for years and of course I would like to continue doing so. :-)

I work with Windows 10 and have learned to appreciate the virtual desktops, which can be set up via the key combination "Windows + Tab". About the desktops can then be distinguished, for example, in "Office" and "Private".

In total, I have actively set up 4 different desktops.

FF I have set up as the "default app" in the Windows settings.

Now it is the case that I have a Firefox window open in the "private desktop", for example.

But when I work in the "office desktop" and click on a URL, the office desktop automatically switches to the private desktop and opens the URL in the FF already opened there in a new tab! :-(

So I have to remember before to open a new Firefox window in the office desktop to display the desired page also on this desktop.

Unfortunately, this doesn't always work.

If I work in the meantime in another of the 4 active desktops and use Firefox there and return to the office desktop and want to open a URL there again, the desktop jumps back to where I last used the already opened FF. This is quite annoying in the long run.

That's why I ran a test today with Google Chrome and MS Edge and defined each of them as the default app for testing.

Stupidly, these two browsers work exactly as I want them to. If I have already opened one of these browsers in another desktop, the URL will still open in the current desktop and any additional URL as another tab will correctly open in the current desktop.

If I now switch to the private desktop and open a URL there, it will correctly open in a new tab in this desktop.

I hope I was able to illustrate my "problem" so far?

Now my question? How can I change the behavior in FF? This seems to be a standard of FF in contrast to both other browser programs. Disabling in the FF settings "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" seems to be only a rudimentary solution;

but then a new window is opened every time, which is also not useful.


Can something be adjusted in the "deeper" settings?

Many thanks in advance for your tips.

Best regards, Georg

Hi Guys,

I use Firefox personally and for business. I use a lot of very useful extensions and like many users I customize my experience. I have found that the number of extensions I use every day is larger then can be shown on the extension toolbar. I am aware that clicking on the "jigsaw" icon will open up all the extensions, however this is not practical and wastes a lot of time. I would like to substantially reduce the size of the search box and increase the available size for my extensions to be in one click territory on the toolbar, how do I best achieve that please?

Cheers

Hey guys,

I saw in the following post that I can modify the zoom values of Firefox to custom values of my choosing (e.g. 75%, 85%):

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1201469

I followed the instructions but it did not work for me. Yes, I did save the changes I made, and I completely closed & reopened Firefox, but the changes I made have not been applied for some reason. Please see the attached image.

I would have ask the question in the aforementioned thread but it's been archived so I had to open a new one. Does anyone know why Firefox does not seem to recognize my custom values (.75, .85)? Thanks!

Hello, on one of my computers I have my new tab set to have 10 rows of pinned links. I went to `about:config` and copied the `browser.newtabpage.pinned` string. I then pasted it into the string on a new device I'm setting up, but it doesn't do anything.

Is there any way to get this working? My new tab on the device I'm setting up has none of the pinned links, just sites I commonly visit

Thanks, let me know if I need to provide any more information.

You can use the mouse to highlight text and use the scroll wheel (up/down) to go through the page. This will not deselect the text/remove the highlight.

But if you middle click to scroll (to get smooth scrolling) the text is deselected.

I don't see why this is necessary, the highlight should be maintained. Of course, middle click should still open clicked links in a background tabs.

My Windows PC apparently crashed when I tried to Hibernate. I knew this because when starting up the PC state was not persisted. I started Firefox (v97 x64) and it would not load any websites. The about:config page loaded.

I was at a loss as to how to resolve this as I could find no advice for this problem.

I thought I would try Safe Mode. Unexpectedly, just starting in Safe Mode resolved the issue without doing anything else. I am now back to normal.

I'm curious to know what just starting in Safe Mode did to resolve the issue. I also want to broadcast this as I did not find this as a potential solution.

Hello,

On Windows chromium-based browsers, the links with linux-style urls : "/path/to/file" are expanded to "/<current device letter>/path/to/file" which can prove pretty handy.

Example: A local "D:\html\index.html" file declaring a '<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/file.js"></script>' will have the "src" expanded to "file:///D:/js/file.js".

Of course on this particular example, it would be easy to use relative paths but "absolute" paths can be useful when referencing shared common files (javascript, css, ...). This way, an html file can be tested locally (without a local server) before being deployed as-is on a server.

Unfortunately, on Firefox there seems to be no such mechanism, unless I have missed something...

Is there any plan to add such a feature?

Currently, I have a shortcut for Amazon, which includes a handy blue magnifying glass symbol 🔎 indicating it's a search shortcut and not a shortcut that will take me to an URL. I'm looking to set up similar search shortcuts for YouTube and Google. I've attached an image below for reference.
