Was using Lubuntu for years on old hardware, then OS got corrupted. Chgd Distro to "AntiX" which worked for a few weeks, then FF quit loading Tags (blue dot just goes back & forth but no load). Bought a new computer meantime but would like to keep old stuff running and most of all clean out the anti-captialist propaganda garbage than landed in my FF synch account, including loops. An add-in that kills loops and moves all bookmarks to the bookmarks bar would be helpful. Presumably it was 'AntiX' that put the propaganda in my FF bookmarks, but bookmarks, if a directed graph, seems susceptible to loops and should have defenses against loops so once garbage like Anti-X's gets in, it can be cleaned out. Cryptically, my FF account asked me today to verify my home country (!) -- which I did (USA). Help appreciated, but if too much trouble would like Synch account destroyed so I can start a new one with same email. Also years and years and years ago I had an early Synch account with the same email address, so if it's calusing trouble, it can all be wiped out. Having to write this from some other browser on a new computer. Thanks!

In Chrome if I want to do either of the following:

1. Click link on a page using Ctrl+Left mouse click or 2. Click a bookmark using ctrl+left mouse click

The link opens in a background tab without leaving the page I am on or closing the bookmark menu.

This does not happen in FF and no key combinations I have researched or tried will duplicate this action which Chrome allows.

Since going back to FF it is hands down the best browser there is - however I am finding my inability to open the tabs in the background like I could in Chrome to be frustrating.

Any help to achieve this would be great.

I am using WIn10 FF 6301 (64)

Thanks in advance.

Every day we open web site and enter username, password and push button login (or using autofill). It take 10 - 15 sec. per site and annoying step every day or week we enter again and again and push login. Firefox may resolve that issue simple replace by automatic way by provide "User profile" ideology.

For example web site want to register new user and ask JavaScript to provide information. Firefox popup window like it now doing with audio, subscription and other feature. User select "User profile" and security rights (bio. address, payment) and no more.

This approach already provided in some Apple iPhone application you reinstall application and application get you Apple ID account and provide access to you account.

Using web site now it simple we no more login and password and already using accounts store in FireFox accounts.

P.S. How about Web Autorization API it is complete or is still draft?

Firefox uses a Master password to protect Certificates stored in Firefox's separate-from-Windows Certificate store. UNlike the (more security-flexibly configurable) Windows Certificate store, Firefox either doesn't protect certificates at all (no Master password) or only 'protects' the whole of the imported certificates by requiring a Master Password (wrongly prompted right at Firefox start time) for the whole of a LastPass user session. In short, if Firefox is running, the certificates (and other things 'protected' by the Firefox Master password) are not well protected.

In contrast, Certificates stored in the Windows Certificate store may be individually configured with various levels of security (no password, prompt on each use, or prompt-with-certificate-specific-password on each use).

Firefox must offer equally flexible security levels for Certificates.

There should be an OTG mode for Firefox. It's sort of like a guest account on public PCs. Basically, a "PPC" mode in Firefox should be turned on to note that the browser is not for personal use, only in public PCs like at libraries and internet cafés.

You can sign in using your Firefox account, and a 2FA request will be sent to your mobile devices running the Firefox mobile app. You can call this feature "Firefox passport"

This will allow sync until you close the browser window.

Also, when visiting others with a PC with Firefox, you can temporarily enable this by clicking "Sign in as a guest" in the hamburger menu (Is that what you call the 3 lines in the right of the awesome bar?)

Again, temporary sync until the browser is closed.

Instead of the download simply failing, Firefox should tell the user that the disk is full.

The first time it happened I thought that the problem was with the downloads, until I saw that my removable disk was full.

But if a warning message appears, no guessing will be needed.

We use the same browser for work, for a school study, while shopping or while trying to book hotels for a vacations. It's not uncommon to move between these contexts, which leaves the typical tabline with dozens of tabs open.

Performance issues aside, it makes using the browser feel cumbersome.

I believe working on such a feature would be great. A similar concept can be shown here https://refresh.study/

The tab dropdown menu normally has a bar down the side which shows which tabs are onscreen at the moment. With the latest update this has disappeared, to be replaced by a single bar marking the currently open tab.

It seems silly, but that bar made it easier to control and limit my number of open tabs (which is quite anxiety-inducing, at least for me).

Is there a skin to restore the old appearance, or (even better) an option to restore the setting?

Sorry for the title/question name.

I have used FF for a long time now. A **LONG** time ago, I could install an addon which is since not supported.

Some of the things I miss which I would like to see added to FF: Although there is now an "Open in new tab" option it is still a bit short of offerings.

1 - "Open in new tab and switch" 2 - Add names to tabs. Sometimes it would be nice to search for a tab with a more appropriate name. 3 - (Though maybe asking a bit too much) Coloured tabs. Un-loaded, Loaded but not active, *THIS* tab. Though *THIS* tab is sort of easy to see, when I am researching something and have a lot of tabs open seeing "where" (which) tab is the active one is handy. Explination of the three colours: -- Un-loaded - (When loading a previous session) This tab is not yet loaded. -- Loaded but not active - You have been to this page this time, but it is not the active tab. -- *THIS* - well, just so it is easy to separate from the other loaded tabs.

I found information about making unpinned tabs wider in about:config but can't find anything for the pinned tabs.

Suggestion to reimagine tabs-bookmarks relationship

Hi there! I always end up having many tabs open in several windows and today I clued into how much time I waste trying to find the right window. I currently have 128 tabs open over 5 windows and every time I shut down and start up Firefox I "restore previous session". I started looking today for a way to label my windows so that I can have them as categories like "Music", "School", "Health", "General Learning", etc. I use a Macbook and use the 4 finger swipe down or up all the time and wanted to see my windows labeled to clearly see the types of tabs I have open regardless of what tab was up front. There are a few plug ins that do that but I don't like the permissions that they need like "Access your data for all websites". it seemed excessive for just a label.

Then I thought. well it's basically a visual bookmark system. but I don't use bookmarks because everything disappears once I put it in bookmarks - it becomes less relevant when it's next to things from 8 years ago. here's what I imagine:

Primary idea:

- windows and bookmark folders are virtually the same thing, and tabs and bookmarks are virtually the same thing.

- I can command-click or option-click on one of the bookmarks in a folder and it opens in a window that is labeled as the bookmark folder name

--- I can command-click-drag to open several bookmarks as tabs in a window that is labeled as the bookmark folder name

--- new bookmarks I open from that folder open as tabs in the window of the same name if it's already open


Secondary thoughts for better flow:

- button in top corner of window will open a list of all the tabs open in that window but the list will be wide enough that you can actually read what the tab is instead of just the first 5 letters.

--- this way I can easily reorganize my open tabs.

--- below list of open tabs in that window is a list of the other bookmarks in that folder that aren't opened that I can click on to open or drag up into the the "open" list and drop it where I want that tab to open up.

--- if you want to get real fancy I can drag the tab from the list back up to the top corner and the other open window lists open up so I can move it to a different window - alternatively I can right click on it and select "move to" or "copy to" and choose a window or bookmark folder.

- colouring or aging can show how recently each tab or bookmark was opened - This link shows what I mean https://trello.com/power-ups/55a5d917446f517774210012/card-aging

- Turn on an option that when I hover over the title it shows a small render of the site (in bookmark menu or tab list)


Troubles to think about:

- Discerning between short term bookmarks (stored tabs) and long term bookmarks (regular bookmarks) - perhaps add a "lock" to the bookmarks you want to keep.

--- some bookmarks i want permanently saved until I delete the bookmark (how it works now)

--- some I want to be more transient so that when I close the tab it means I'm done with it (how I treat tabs now)

--- when implementing the "move to" or "copy to" suggestion above, you may want that move or copy to be a permanent or transient bookmark. I suggest keeping the "bookmark" word to mean permanent so perhaps a "bookmark to" option.

--- Perhaps closing a window doesn't remove them from the bookmarks folder, but closing the tabs individually does unless it's "locked"

All of this will help me to keep my tabs to a minimum when I start firefox and when I want to pick up on a different subject I can easily open all of the relevant tabs - most of which aren't "bookmark" worthy at this point, they're just there till I deal with them and close them. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out. I feel this would dramatically increase my organization and workflow so I'm here to help

Sincerely, Rick
