It's good to have those built-in shortcuts, but it's stupid you can't modify them. When I use this website I can't input the division sign by pressing / on the keypad because it's the shortcut for Quick Find. I guess this is because the place to input is not a normal text box like in WolframAlpha , but part of the whole webpage(?). Add the function to customise shortcuts is much easier than let Firefox recognise and deal with this situation, I think. In fact, most software supports customising shortcuts, so I'm surprised to find there's no way for Firefox to do that.

I have seen a lot of answers here that don't appear to understand the real problem. The key here at one time I chose to DISABLE the reminder on the pop up. The "Do you want Firefox to remember this password" box doesn't pop up anymore.

All history has been cleared, all sites and passwords have been cleared. Under "Security" tab "remember passwords for sites box" is checked and under "Privacy" tab "Always use private browsing mode" is disabled.

The last time this happened, I uninstalled/re-installed Firefox. Is that the only solution?

Viewing two tabs side-by-side can be very helpful, for example when copying information across. This used to work in older version using the AddOns tiled=tabs/pages. But in FF76 tiled-pages has very limited functionality and does not work for me for any page that requires javascript - so most pages requiring logins are out.

How can I get this very time-saving functionality back?

I woke up this morning to find that firefox updated without my permission. this annoys me. What annoys me the most, however, is not having to re-customize every thing on the toolbar, but the fact that there is NO REFRESH BUTTON. I liked having a refresh button. it was very handy. I liked having it to the left of my address bar. Why can I no longer have a refresh button to the left of the address bar? the only one I can seem to find in imbedded in a very awkward and inconvenient place inside the address bar. I feel this is unacceptable. When looking at the page made to advertize firefox, it stats that it was "Made with a mission to put you first." this is not putting me first. this is taking control away from me and making the interface that much less intuitive. I would like to have my refresh button back. I do not want to have to go through antoher workaround like downloading a classic theme and screwing with that. I just want the refresh button. now, where is the refresh button and how can I place it where I want it to go? it's a simple question, yet I have not found any answer for it anywhere on this site.

We're a Windows 7 x86 shop and we're finally upgrading from Firefox 3.6. I just need a little help finalizing the customizations for our Firefox 22 install.

Our requests don't differ greatly from others (no automatic updates, no plugin checks, set default home page, no Firefox sync etc.) and all that seems to be working so far. I ran the install on a machine that did not have a previous version of Firefox and found it largely behaving the way I expected it to.

However two things stand out:

On initial launch I'm seeing a 'checking compatibility of addons' screen. It doesn't ask me to do anything and disappears after a few seconds, but this worries me that it *might* complain about a plugin a user installed when we go through the upgrade process.

 - Can this 'check' be avoided?
 - Is it really doing anything? (eg: checking for blacklisted addons/extensions? etc)
 - What's the worst that could happen here?

In the registry (HKLM\Software\Mozilla\Firefox\Extensions) I have two entries created by 2 other applications on the workstation each of which pointing to their respective extension/addon/plugin directory (e.g.: C:\Program Files\Application\some_directory). When properly installed, one is listed as an Extension, the other a Plugin. On the first launch after installation, I see two 'Install Add-on' tabs prompting me to approve each the installation. Seeing as these extensions are allowed/trusted and required, I want Firefox to accept them without prompting the user. Now, I'm aware of two key elements that largely govern this (and their subtle differences) but I can't seem to get this to work right: extensions.autoDisableScopes extensions.enabledScopes With the former set to 0 and the latter 15 I relaunch FF and while I don't get the tabs, when I go to test them, it doesn't work. Furthermore, the Plugin is listed under Extensions which probably shoud not be.

 - What am I doing wrong?
 - How can I allow/trust/whitelist or otherwise automatically approve the installation of either specific add-ons, or add-ons within a specific location? 



Please, correct me if I'm doing something wrong, or if there's a better way (e.g.: GPO's) to apply global settings for all users. I'm hoping to avoid a solution that requires installing a third-party plug-in Any advice is greatly appreciated.

I recently upgraded from WIndows XP to Windows 8. None of the installed browers would work with the FTP site www.wetransfer.com. I installed Firefox and it solved the problem. FF worked fine for a couple months. Now it is behaving exactly like the other browsers installed on my machine. I do not know if there was a windows update or FF update that changed some kind of setting. I uninstalled and reinstalled FF to no relief. I did try to restore my computer to an earlier date but ...1. the dates available don't go back far enough and 2. for some reason the restore fails. Don't know what to try next. Wetransfer only suggests try a different browser ... ie, aol, yahoo, google chrome do not act any differently on this machine. Don't know what to do next.
