For quite some time I've been using a userChrome.css code to remove the border from the URL bar when focused. However, I made a new theme of my own and now I need the border back BUT!!! I need it to be visible all the time - whether the URL bar is on focus or not, and also I want it to have a color of my own choosing. I already know the code for the color (#E2B582), but I have no idea what to type in the CSS file in order to have the border appear the way I want it.

I just reinstalled my operative system, and with that my Firefox settings got reset. I know there is an entry in about:config to prevent ads from opening new tabs and pop ups without authorization, even from legit websites like the login pop-up windows when doing a sign in in Google, in those cases to allow the windows it's needed to click on the lock icon next to the URL bar and allow it from there. The problem is that I don't remember the name of that setting and I have spend an hour looking for it on Google.

Hello! Just installed Ubuntu 20.04.4 on my laptop and now find that I'm not able to watch some YouTube videos on Firefox 97. It seems mainly just live streams that I can't watch. When I go to one it shows "Your browser can't play this video...Learn more" in the video window. Clicking Learn More takes me to a page that doesn't explain what the problem is. Any idea what the fix might be? The same videos play just fine on other devices on my network. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is it possible to disable CTRL+SHIFT+C shortcut? Is there any fork with this shortcut disabled?

Running Linux Mint Mate 19.2 on two computers. Starting about 2 weeks ago, when trying to sign into providencejournal.com (with a paid subscription) using Firefox 97.0.1, just one of the computers displays an error message, see attached. We have used that site for years without issues, and the other computer still signs in correctly. On the problem computer I have just installed the Opera browser, for test purposes, and with Opera the sign-in succeeds. In F/F, I have tried disabling extensions, allowing all trackers and cookies, and reinstalling Javascript, all to no avail. preference is to use F/F, can anyone offer a solution?

I have my tab bar below the other toolbars. I have a userChrome.css to help set things up the way I use them. System is Linux 64-bit.

Just updated Firefox from a few-months-older version to 91.6.1esr from the official repos and my tab bar is now blank. No tabs, no nothing. When I open a "new tab" I just get the new page; the "Back" arrow is greyed out, so it presumably is a net tabsheet. But I have no tab to get back to the previous page, all is blank.

The tab bar is there at the top OK in Troubleshooting Mode. En/dis-abling all my extensions etc. makes no difference in either mode.

Fixes for related issues tend to focus on userChrome.css but none offers a straight code sample to fix this issue. Here is an extract from mine, I have no idea whether any of it is relevant:

#nav-bar { /* main toolbar */
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 1 !important;
  box-shadow: none !important;
}
#PersonalToolbar { /* bookmarks toolbar */
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 2 !important;
}
#TabsToolbar { /* tab bar */
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 3 !important;
  padding-top: 0 !important;
}

/* FIX TO MOVE TAB BAR BELOW TOOLBAR /*

#navigator-toolbox toolbar:not(#nav-bar):not(#toolbar-menubar) {
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 10 !important;
}

#TabsToolbar {
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 1000 !important;
  display: block !important;
  position: absolute !important;
  bottom: 0 !important;
  width: 100vw !important;
}

#tabbrowser-tabs {
  width: 100vw !important;
}

*|*:root:not([chromehidden*="toolbar"]) #navigator-toolbox {
  padding-bottom: calc(var(--tab-min-height) + 1px) !important; /*adjust*/
}

/* Firefox 65-73 */
*|*:root[tabsintitlebar]:not([inFullscreen="true"]):not([sizemode="maximized"])
 #toolbar-menubar[autohide="true"] ~ #TabsToolbar{
  bottom: var(--tab-min-height) !important;
  padding-top: calc(var(--tab-min-height) - 20px) !important; /*adjust*/
}

/* TABS: height */
*|*:root {
  --tab-toolbar-navbar-overlap: 0px !important;
  --tab-min-height: 25px !important; /*adjust or omit to use density*/
}

*|*:root #tabbrowser-tabs {
  --tab-min-width: 80px !important; /*adjust or omit to use default*/
}

#TabsToolbar {
  height: var(--tab-min-height) !important;
  margin-bottom: 1px !important;
  box-shadow: ThreeDShadow 0 -1px inset, -moz-dialog 0 1px !important; /*omit*/

Hello, First let me thank Mozilla again for a great experience. I've been using Firefox as my main browser for many years and since some time I also started supporting Mozilla financially with whatever little I can with recurring payments. To the problem: since some time patch / commit view on HitHub with Firefox is broken. I guess many @mozilla have github accounts so you can open and read https://support.github.com/ticket/1318472 but to summarise: my first entry there was: ``` When viewing Linux kernel style Pull Requests on GitHub, using Firefox, TABs are displayed as 4 spaces, which is confusing, since the default is 8 spaces, which is also what is displayed in chrome and chromium. E.g. https://github.com/thesofproject/sof/pull/4747/commits/e9cc9312841a9329797b0b676335c8cb1a0dc779 ``` then a screenshot (attached) and a clarification to it: ``` As you can see there the patch area between lines 238 and 245 is wrongly indented by 4 spaces, whereas areas above and below are correctly indented by 8 spaces. ``` Then more: ``` No, space isn't used for indentation in that code. They can download raw code and verify, I'm sure they know how to do that. Why don't they just reproduce that themselves? Start Firefox, navigate to any PR commit like https://github.com/thesofproject/sof/pull/4884/commits/b19a64df2c2fcd63d7407ef500fd3312287c8995 and click arrows above and below the diff to display surrounding code. Then navigate to or download the raw patch https://github.com/thesofproject/sof/commit/b19a64df2c2fcd63d7407ef500fd3312287c8995.patch to see TABs used everywhere. Should be very easy to verify. ``` and their last reply was ``` From a technical standpoint this is not a regression. It's a problem with the way firefox interprets the combination of the tab-size css and the particular markdown we use for our diffs.

After reviewing the Issue in more detail there it has not been prioritized and will most likely not be addressed in the near future. ``` This is a deal-breaker for me. I spend hours daily reviewing GitHub pull requests. And I'd really not want to use a different browser just because of this... Please help! Thanks Guennadi

I am on Arch Linux using i3. I have been using Firefox for a while but recently switched from Nautilus to pcmanfm as my file manager. Now Firefox is unable to save any file or do anything else that requires opening the file manager. Running it through the terminal I get:

"Can't open portal file chooser: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.portal.Desktop was not provided by any .service files"

I have xdg-desktop-portal installed and have tried xdg-desktop-portal-{gnome, gtk, and kde}. I have also tried setting widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal to both true and false, neither of which changed anything. Reinstalling Nautilus also doesn't fix it. Does anybody know what could be causing this?

Hi,

Something seems to be happening with my Gmail. After some time, it stops updating. When attempting to reload the page, no requests are even sent from Firefox. When attempting to load it in a new tab, I get an endless loading sign but no indication a request is actually being sent (no request in network tab, no domain in the bottom corners as happens when loading a page).

All other Google products load correctly.

The solutions I've found are to log out of Google and log back in or clear cache/cookies/etc for Google. However, after some time this issue pops up again.

I've already rebooted the machine, done latest update, cleared site cache etc etc etc. and this keeps happening.
